Reading 262-003 Edited

As each seek in their way, through their development,
to cooperate in being of service to others, so are they lifted up.

As the consciousness of the Master is raised in their individual activities,
so is the cooperation in the body as was from the beginning, when
the cooperation brought into being those forces that manifest themselves
in this material world.

Each keeping that creative force within themselves
in that direction that will make for the continuity of life, hope, peace,
understanding.
May this build in their own lives first, then in others
- as they, in their way, seek to bring a better understanding
in this material world.

As you are gathered here, let that mind be in you
not of elementals, but of spiritual forces that may come through
your efforts if they are made in accord with His will.

Let your prayer be continually:
Not my will but Yours, O Lord,
be done in and through me.
Let me ever be a channel of blessings, today, now,
to those that I contact, in every way.
Let my going in, my coming out be in accord
with that You would have me do,
and as the call comes,
"Here am I, send me, use me!"

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q1) [307]: How may we have the mind of Christ?
(A) As we open our hearts, our minds, our souls,
that we may be a channel of blessings to others,
so we have the mind of the Christ, who took upon Himself
the burden of the world.

So may we, in our own little sphere, take upon ourselves
the burdens of the world.

The joy, the peace, the happiness, that may be ours
is in doing for the other fellow.

By gaining an understanding of the laws as pertain to right living
in all its phases makes the mind in attune with Creative Forces,
which are of His consciousness.

We have that consciousness, by putting into action wthat we know.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q2) [560]: What is my part in this lesson of Cooperation?
(A) For those that seek through these lessons
a practical religion in action.

As your part in the ministry to the Master was
of the practical things of life, so in the lessons
these must be living words, that they may touch
the hearts, the minds, the souls of others.

In your ministry, then, see that each line, each thought,
is a practical thing, living, having its being, in Him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q3) [560]: How may I know self?
(A) By your activities in the daily walks of life,
compared with the thoughts, the activities of Him,
will reflect the self that is meant in this query.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q4) A large body of water [during meditation]
kept coming into sight. I could see it plainly.
(A) As your activities in relation to others is made active,
so will the water of life be made more plain, more active
in your experience, as was the depth and the activities
of that mother of life seen.
(See 262-8)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q5) [2125]: In what way could I best serve this group?
(A) In holding one with another, in self's meditation,
that of a useful, purposeful, definite aim for those,
and for that as is being attempted to be furthered
by all active in same, making continually that affirmation,
"His will - in all things - be done."

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q6) [2124]: Will my work in the group of healers
be made known to me?
(A) Be made known, as the activities of the group
are centered here or there, or from the directions as come,
so will the part of each be made known to them as they seek;
for, as is given, "Seek and you shall find," this is a promise.

Know in self that He is faithful to fulfill that as is promised,
as we are faithful in caring for those to whom, for whom,
the promise is made.

They that seek God may find Him!
To have mercy shown to you, then be merciful to those you contact.
To be forgiven, forgive them that know not what they say and do;
"As you lift Me in your life, so shall you be lifted in the life here,
now, and hereafter."

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q7) [311]: How may I best cooperate with and serve this group?
(A) Do with all your might what your hands find to do.
Let this mind be in you as was in Him,
"Not as I will but Your will be done in earth as it is in heaven."
Make your self a channel of blessings to someone;
so will His blessings come to you, as an individual,
as an integral part of the group.
"They that seek My Face shall find it."

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q8) [2112]: Is spiritual healing a gift, or is it a talent
we have developed from our past lives?
(A) Both. All force, all power, comes from the same source.
To some is given the power of healing,
To some the speaking of tongues.
To some that of ministry.
To some that of another - each as they have builded
in their experience, and as they seek to be used
as a channel of blessings through that they have builded
for themselves does the blessing come to others.

To be free, then let that not become a stumbling block to someone.
Rather let those efforts of self be in Him,
that all blessings may come to those in their respective ways.

He knows what we have need of before we have asked.
In the asking, in the seeking, as individuals - and intensified
in cooperative thought, cooperative intent, cooperative purpose
- so do the activities come to each in their way.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q9) [993]: Before we can have cooperation,
do we not have to offer ourselves?
(A) In cooperation is the offering of self to be
a channel of activity, of thought; for as line upon line,
precept upon precept, comes' so does it come
through the giving of self.
He that would have life must give life.
They that would have love must show themselves lovely.
They that would have friends must be friendly.
They that would have cooperation must cooperate.
By the giving of self to that as is to be accomplished
- whether in the bringing of light to others,
bringing of strength, health, understanding,
these are one in Him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q10) [993]: What lack we yet to cooperate as a group?
(A) Beautiful is the cooperation of the group in purpose;
Needs to be put in action!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q11) [993]: How can we as a group get in accord
with those that are aiding us?
(A) Open your hearts to those of the unseen forces
that surround the throne of grace, beauty, and might,
and throwing about yourself that protection that is found
in the thoughts of Him.

So may the activities be
that bring about the work that may be accomplished,
the thought as may be made active in the lives of others,
the health, the prosperity even that may be brought
to those through those efforts of individuals, group,
as an active force with Him in this material plane.
(See 262-19 expanding on this)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q12) [288]: Is not cooperation a natural result
when self is lost in the ideal?
(A) This is a natural consequence of self service, self sacrifice,
self bewilderment, in Him.

Being the channel is cooperation.
Being a blessing is cooperation in action.
In whatever state of being, meet that upon the basis
of their position - and lift up, look up - this is cooperation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q13) [288]: What does my dream of the group
on desert sands signify?
(A) A harking back to periods when many gathered here aided
upon the sands, through the activities of many a one
- and easy will be the gathering of others as the active forces
are put into operation, for like begets like.

Let the seeds sown be cooperation with Him,
that the harvest may be a looking up to the leader - the Giver of light.
(See 262-1)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q14) [341]: Please interpret and expand upon,
"Cooperation is the soul of any organized group of individuals."
(A) This is a philosophical truth; and in activity must be
in that spirit that gives life.

As the soul is made one in purpose, let the spirit
that motivates that purpose be in that channel,
that position, that is sure that the harvest is in Him;
for man labors - but God gives the increase.

Is it in the spirit that comes from Him?
Then the increase must be from Him.

As a group gathers for cooperative measures
in a material plane, so the soul may be divided
or united in Him, depending on the spirit
that gives the motivative force to the activities of such a group;
Through the activities of these gathered here - as of old,
were heard around the world.
So may the activities of this group again go through the ages
to those unborn, regenerating them to that awakening
that makes for the souls of men safe in the knowledge of Him.
(See 262-1)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q15) [404]: Are my ideas of taking the right attitude
of mind correct for this first lesson?
(A) The attitude of mind makes for that which gives the birth,
or the rising up of peace, harmony, understanding,
or it is as the children of the mind - that which brings
contending forces that may be warred against;
for as all must find,
"When I would do right the spirit of unrest is ever present."
Day by day as this is put out of the mind,
and more and more the mind of harmony, peace,
understanding - not a latent kind, but an active force
- so does this become the manner in which self
is giving expression of that being sought.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q16) [404]: Where must I begin in order to have
full coordination in my own body, soul and spirit?
(A) Begin with making self as naught - and self's own efforts as naught
but a channel of blessings from the Source of Good to others.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q17) [538]: I seemed to see the following words:
Cooperation foundation on which all should be built.
In unity is strength.
(A) This is as an axiom for all to find in their various expressions
the unity of purpose, the oneness of heart, the oneness of mind,
in that "His will, not my will,"
nor my personality - but losing self in His will.
When you meditate, when you pray - Not for self, but that self
may be a blessing for others, through this given group
- not your personality, but as a oneness of purpose in Him,
the Giver of all good and perfect gifts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Q18) General: Is there a message for us now
that we may use as the center about which to build
the first lesson on Cooperation?
(A) As you have gathered through that meditating of mind,
or in putting self first in the channel of being a blessing,
give active words for what you have received.

This becoming a blessing to self through
becoming a blessing to others.

Seek to know His way, and
"As I am lifted up in your consciousness,
so will I be lifted in the consciousness of others."
