ALREADY you are entering into a wider understanding. There are many who have gone on, yet in ignorance of much with which you are familiar. So far we have clearly stated the first fact-Who are we? Indestructible spiritual beings. The living knowledge of this alters your whole mental attitude towards sin, sickness, and death. Now we approach with reverence and humility our next consideration-Why am I?
The whole answer is contained in one sentence: You are, because God is; but as man is still blinded by false sense, I will endeavour to speak from your own standpoint. In the place where you are, there is a work of the highest importance to be done, and no one else can do your work. God has brought you to this time and place in order to carry out perfect laws.
You may never be known to the world, but your work shall stand for ever. By your own indwelling spiritual forces you will spiritualize and make real the plane of shadow and confusion. Working from the same spiritual standpoint, there will be no separation between us and you. In reality, there is no division. Your world sense of fear is the only barrier between us. This is a falsity, and belongs to ignorance and" chaos. You are just where you are for the doing of God's perfect work. Hold an attitude of receptivity of heart and mind.
All the good around you exists for ever, and can never change or be lost. It is spoiled to you, because your eyes have opened to good and bad. The good is the only real. The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, working from the very heart of God the Creator. Your work the angels might envy, for in so far as you are true to your unlimited and spiritual nature, you are creative. We earnestly watch and pray for the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven upon earth. It will be the awakening from shadow to substance, from confusion to order, from weakness to power-but, above all else, to the wholeness or unity of life. Realize that your work is the highest, work that you have undertaken to do from the beginning. I would here recommend that you begin with your immediate circle, as the very next step must be the right one. See and know only the good in those nearest to you. Speak to them, recognizing the highest Self. Your trust shall beget in them new hope. In every detail of your life know only the good, which in very truth is the only real. Do not be cast down by appearances, but rather maintain an attitude of steadfast hope towards all who seem at a low stage of development, seeing always the goal to which they also shall attain; as for yourself, work with everything that makes for good. Your reason for being on the earth now is to help on this very work. There are helpers all around you. God is love incarnate. Peace is in your hearts and lives now. Behold, I make all things new.
