Just as "HE SO LOVED THE WORLD as to GIVE HIS OWN SON."
So therefore "LOVE is the GIVING OUT of THAT WITHIN SELF."
Then, come ye, my children!
Harken [LISTEN] unto that thou hast attained[GAINED] in thine self,
that ye may put on the whole armor and be fruitful in the LOVE OF HIM
that calls that everyone should HEAR, should KNOW, should UNDERSTAND,
that GOD is in HIS HEAVENS and that HIS LOVE ENDURETH
even to those who harden their hearts
and wills that no one should perish;
rather that IN THE LOVE as may be MANIFESTED
in the daily walks, the daily activities of every soul,
each may SHOW through that manifested THE LOVE WHICH IMPELS
THE GIVING OF EVERYTHING WITHIN SELF
as A MANIFESTATION of HE, the MASTER,
HAVING SPOKEN WITH THEE!
"LOVE ME, keep my commandments,
that I MAY ABIDE IN THEE
even as I ABIDE IN THE FATHER."
As we show forth, then,
in OUR SPEECH, in OUR ACTIONS day by day,
do we MAKE MANIFEST
THAT which will make for the AWARENESS
WITHIN OUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS
OF THE LOVE, THAT LOVE, HIS LOVE,
that passeth all understanding in man's life - as man;
yet is A PRACTICAL, PERSONAL LOVE
that MAKES FOR JOY in THE SERVICES that one may render,
even in toil, in pain, in misunderstandings
that SHAPE THE ACTIVITIES of the lives of so many
that WOULD WALK WITH HIM!
Then, in THE SPIRIT and in THE MIND
that hast brought thee to that understanding
and consciousness of HIS LOVE MADE MANIFEST,
ABIDE YE ye day by day.
Then, COMMUNE the more often
in the INNER SHRINE, in the HOLY OF HOLIES.
MEET THE PRESENCE of THE FATHER there;
KNOW THE LOVE OF THE CHRIST IN ACTION;
EXPERIENCE and SEE TRUTH and THE HOLY SPIRIT
in the RESULTS that come from such CONSECRATION
of the IDEALS OF SELF.
For, as each SEEKS IN ITS OWN WAY,
there IS GIVEN THAT which will enable each
to gain a better CONCEPT
of the CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS IN ACTIVITY.
OUR FATHER, THROUGH THE LOVE
THAT THOU HAST MANIFESTED IN THE WORLD
THROUGH THY SON, THE CHRIST,
MAKE US MORE AWARE OF "GOD IS LOVE".
In the preparation, then, for the study of self that each has manifested in their lives,
through the varied experiences that have been theirs in the preparation of the lessons,
there has been brought to each a better concept of the Father, of the Son,
and of why He, the Son, came into the earth that we as sons of God
might have the access to the throne of mercy, grace, peace and pardon
through the Son;
And through HIS LIFE in the EXPERIENCES OF EACH
MANIFESTING THESE IN OUR OWN LIVES..
He that would EXPECT MERCY must SHOW MERCY to his fellow man;
He that would FIND PEACE AND HARMONY in the love of God
must SHOW LOVE, PEACE, HARMONY, with his fellow man.
And, as each individual has had its own problems, its own experiences,
in reaching this understanding in the study and preparation of self
in giving truth, light, the words of life even, for others,
so may each in the preparation of this present lesson find
LOVE that passeth understanding;
PEACE, as He gives peace;
LOVE, as He gave love.
For, if each will prepare themselves they may in this lesson
FIND HIM AS A BROTHER that would speak with them.
For, His promises are sure; even as He gave,
"I will not leave thee comfortless, but will come to you."
"If ye love me, keep my commandments - that I may abide with you,
and through you shed abroad the light, the Love of God, unto the sons of men! "
In the preparation, as given, they each have prepared themselves in this or that way and manner.
They each have become expectant for that which may be in their own consciousness
to become aware of, that that may make manifest in their experience more
as respecting HIM WHO WAS LOVE MADE MANIFEST IN THE EARTH.
In this preparation, here, there, those that have attempted oft the harder
have fallen short of that as should be accomplished in their experience.
The first lesson that each must learn: Love is the giving out of that within self.
Then, where slights, slurs, or even suspicions, have been allowed to enter in
as respecting the fellow man, there cannot be all of what love should be,
should mean, in the experience of such an one.
For, "He so loved the world as to give His own son."
And it has been asked of everyone,
"Love me, keep my commandments, that I may abide in thee even as I abide in the Father."
All believe, yes;
All know, yes;
All understand that those things that hinder each
and every soul are only self-centeredness, selfishness in self,
that present even the dawn of that concept of what love means in their experience.
All see in various activities in the earth
that of maternal love,
that of love in friendship,
that of love for an ideal, for self,
for the varied experiences that are seen in everyone's experience.
Yet, to know the whole truth that makes one free indeed; that love that prevents slurs, slights,
unkind remarks, falterings here, disappointments there - in things, in people, in conditions;
to not shake faith, the foundation of manifesting in the material experience; few have found this.
Has anyone in the group, then, wholly prepared self?
For, in His presence has anyone opened the door and been satisfied,
or not even dismayed at times, at that seen within self?
Has He entered with thee in thy daily conversation one with another?
Purpose, yes; aims high, desires mounting; yet that of self not left in the background,
rather taking the place - even as he when he answered as to who the Son of man was,
when there was the presentation of that that must suffer in body, in the mental mind,
was needed to be upbraided for that, that such things must not be
when God himself walked in the earth.
Yet love, as HE gave, was able even then to say,
"Get thee from me, for thou savorest rather the things that be of the earth than the things of life."
Then, come ye, my children!
Harken unto that thou hast attained in thine self, that ye may put on the whole armor and be fruitful
in the love of Him that calls that EVERYONE should hear, should know, should understand,
that God is in His heavens and that His love endureth even to those who harden their hearts
- and wills that no one should perish; rather that in the love as may be manifested in the daily walks,
the daily activities of every soul, each may show through that manifested the love
which impels the giving of everything within self as a manifestation of He, the Master, having spoken with thee!
Be not overcome.
Be not impatient with thine brother, with thine neighbor, and - most of all - with thine self.
For, as given, "In patience possess ye your souls" that may know Him as thine elder brother,
who is at the right hand of God to make intercession for you day by day;
and who calls unto all that will harken,
"Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto me."
As we show forth, then, in our speech, in our actions day by day,
do we make manifest that which will make for the awareness within our own consciousness
of the love, that love, His love, that passeth all understanding in man's life - as man;
yet is a practical, personal love that makes for joy in the services that one may render,
even in toil, in pain, in misunderstandings that shape the activities of the lives of so many
that would walk with Him!
In the deed, in the act, do we see that promised come to each,
that "I will come and abide with thee - If ye love me, keep my commandments."
For, these are neither grievous nor hard to bear when self is not sought to be exalted in the day or in the hour.
But, "Ye that have known me knoweth my Father also, for I am in Him,
and ye in me may know that love that maketh the life burn as an ember
in a darkened and unregenerated world.
For unto me must come all that would find the way.
I AM the way.
Ye are my brethren.
Ye have been begotten in the flesh through the love made manifest in the earth."
Then, in the spirit and in the mind that hast brought thee to that understanding
and consciousness of His love made manifest, abide ye day by day.
Each may find in this that which is being sought by each,
in the study of the lesson and that which each seeks to manifest in the lesson.
As each goes forth to make manifest, each may find that sought.
The first, in that expressed in a baby's smile;
in the hope, the light, the seeking, the manifestation of that which is love undefiled.
The next may see it in the rose, as it seeks - with that it has to do with
- to make manifest that beauty in expression that may GLORIFY its Maker.
The next may find it in friendship, in that which speaks without thought of self,
that which makes for the expressions of love GLORIFIED
through the friendliness that comes with friendship.
The next may find it in that as reasons for the beauty of a song,
in the harmony that shows forth in the expression of the soul within;
whether in instruments or the soul raised in praise to the Giver of light.
The next may find it in the expressions of the duty that may be the lot of one
that, without thought of self, shows forth in the acts of life that first thought
of the duty from a material standpoint,
yet the LOVE made manifest from wholly showing forth His life,
His love, till He come again!
The next may find it in the manner of speech under the varied circumstances that arise
in the experience of all, through that association which comes in the daily walks of life,
and in the encouragement that may be given through the kind word spoken;
the giving of the cup of water to anyone seeking, to those that thirst.
This may show to such an one the love that is manifest in "God Is love."
The next may find it in whatever the hands find to do, that done well,
in all phases of one's experience, that lends self in the daily walks of life,
doing the best with that which presents itself, in the glorying of the expressions,
"As ye do it unto the least of these, my little ones, ye do it unto me."
The next will find it in the glory that comes in the satisfaction of a contented heart,
in knowing that each day has brought an opportunity that has been taken advantage of
by self in showing the kindness here, going out of the way in self's own life
to make the lot of a neighbor more joyous, brighter, in the activities of the daily life.
The next may find it in looking forward to those days that may come,
for the filling of those places that may be made or given in the lives spent
in the service of Him who may call that thy face be that which may bring
the knowledge of thine life, thine heart, spent in His service day by day.
Rather than presenting so many illustrations of that which may be termed
as applied by seeing in others, or things, the expressions or manifestations,
present more of that which may come from within.
Give as this in the experience, that each may find within self the truth, the love, the life.
Life is, in all its manifestations in every animate force, creative force in action;
and is the love of expression - or expressing that life;
truth becoming a result of life's love expressed.
For, these are but names - unless experienced in the consciousness of each soul.
Then, commune the more often in the inner shrine, in the holy of holies.
Meet the presence of the Father there;
KNOW the love of the Christ in action;
experience and see truth and the Holy Spirit in the results
that come from such consecration of the ideals of self.
For, each may have the experience of speaking with Him through such a consecration;
for His promises are true, "I will not leave thee comfortless, but will come and abide with thee."
In such experiences in self, then, may there be added to the lesson on Love
that which will awaken in the hearts, the souls, the minds of others
that desire to know HIS ways better.
Each has been chosen as a channel, and each in its own way - and not alone of self,
but manifesting life through love will bring the Spirit's reaction
in the daily experiences of every soul.
For, they are one - ALL believe, all have heard.
Then, let them that have eyes see, and ears hear,
what the Spirit saith unto them in such meditation in the INNER self.
For, from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh;
and the love of the Father through the Son constraineth all,
if each will be less selfish, less self-centered,
more desirous of showing forth HIS love,
His abundant mercy, His peace, His harmony,
that comes from being quiet in the Lord,
being joyous in service, being happy in whatsoever state ye find self;
knowing that he whom the Lord loveth him doth He call into service,
if each soul will but seek to know HIS way rather than "my way or thy way."
Let thy yeas be yea in the Lord.
Let thine understanding take hold on the things of the spirit, for they are alone eternal.
For, the children of light are called - even now - into service,
that His day may be hastened, lest many faint.
In the preparation, as we have given,
each must so examine self that there be that in the heart, the soul of each,
that each would present as a manifestation
of that each would have Him present in the relationships with self.
For, as each seeks in its own way,
there is given that which will enable each to gain a better concept
of the Christ Consciousness in activity.
There needs be only that compiled that is contributed by the members,
in such a way and manner that may be made practical
in the experience of those who study and apply same in their experience.
In the completing of same, there should be those contributions
from all who will of themselves contribute to same.
In considering same, then, that there has come the completion of those lessons
that may form the basis of study by those who are interested in seeking truth,
that may be applicable in their experience,
now those that are called realize that in the greater part that compiled
is as but knowledge UNLESS applied in their daily lives.
Then, begin with that study, that application of that which has been gathered here,
and with same begin with the compilation of that which may be the parallel
with the truth as given.
Hence, the next lesson, the next application of self in the group, would be upon Opportunity;
the next on Day and Night; the next on God, the Father and His Manifestations in the Earth.
Then, these - as will be seen - may become more of living truths,
as each of the group applies self in its daily experience to that which has been set.
(Q) Please give a definition for, "God so loved the world as to give has only begotten son."
(A) A beautiful lesson has just been given, and definition.
This may suit those seeking this the better.
God, the Father, the first cause, seeking - in the manifestations of self
- brought the world, as we (as individuals) observe it about us, into being
- THROUGH LOVE; giving to man, His creation, His creatures,
that ability to become one with Him.
That SON we have called the Son of man, the Christ Spirit,
the LOVE MADE MANIFEST in bringing the creature into material being
in a plane we have called earth.
That SON was shown, then, the way, through the love of the Father,
and He MADE MANIFEST THAT LOVE
in giving His earthly, material life for a cause, an ensample, a mediation,
a contact with the Father, a mediator for man.
Hence in love, through love, God IS love, in the Christ Consciousness, the Christ Spirit;
the Son of man made same manifest in all the experiences through the earth.
Hence, as given by the beloved disciple,
"God so loved the world as to give His only begotten son,"
that we, THROUGH Him, might have life - God - more abundant.
He, though He were the Son, learned obedience through the things which He suffered.
He that climbs up any other way than accepting those things
that are to be met day by day, even as He, seeks through some other channel.
The servant may never be greater than the master.
He has given that we may be equal and one with Him,
yet through Him, His manifestations, in Him,
we live in the earth, we move and have our being.
(Q) Please give a definition on At-one-ment.
(A) At-onement may be given even as atonement.
At-onement, then, is making self's will one with the Creative Forces
that may become the impelling influence in thought, in mind,
that is the builder to every act of a physical, mental or material body.
Then, in making at-onement, the will of an entity, an individual,
is made one with the Creative influences in the experience.
(Q) On "the BLOOD of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin."
(A) As given, without the shedding of blood there was no remission of sin.
As given in the beginning of man's concept of making atonement
for the wrongs done self in relationship to the Creative Forces.
For, the error that man makes is the more oft against himself
than making for the breaking of law
as related to divine influence in the experience.
For, love is law - law is love, in its essence.
And with the breaking of the law is the making of the necessity for atonement and forgiveness,
in that which may take away error to or what has been brought in the experience of the individual.
Hence the shedding of the blood in the MAN Jesus made for the atoning for ALL men,
through making Himself in at-onement with the law and with love.
For, through LOVE was brought the desire to make self and His brother in at-onement.
Hence in the atoning or shedding of the blood comes the redemption to man,
through that which may make for HIS - man's - at-onement with Him.
(Q) Please give us an individual message on Love for each member of the group,
calling the name of each as the message is given.
(A) To each has been given that which it may apply
in the individual personality and individuality of its experience.
(Q) Were the messages for each to choose?
(A) Each knows self better than you may tell 'em!
(Q) There were two more present than messages were given.
(A) They didn't ask!
(Q) Any message for the group as a whole?
(A) Seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.
Study in the lessons that He gave, as He presented Himself in the expectant way
in the entry before the crowning of the glory that He had before the world was,
that there is in each experience that even as He gave.
If the life is so lived that it makes manifest His love,
the very rocks and stones will cry out in praise should man keep his mouth.
Yet these lessons will bring in the experience of all that which is sought,
in showing forth the love as He gave - even in that,
"Though one may possess all things and have not love, his life is nothing."
(Q) What is meant by the CHILDREN OF LIGHT?
(A) They that choose to be guided by His will
and do not, through themselves, attempt
to manifest self rather than the will of the Father.
In the beginning was the word, and the word was God.
He said, Let there be LIGHT - and there was light.
Like begets like.
It IS both cause and effect, and they that choose some other way become the children of darkness;
and they are these: Envying, strife, hate; and the children of these are sedition, rebellion, and the like.
The children of light first love, for
"Though I may have the gift of prophecy,
though I may speak in unknown tongues,
though I give my body to be burned and have not the spirit of the Son of man,
the Christ Consciousness, the Christ Spirit, I am nothing."
For, the children of light KNOW Him; He calleth each by name.
(Q)  and : Please give us a message in regard to our experiences.
(A) Be ye patient in well doing.
Count not the time long, for in so doing ye give the forces of doubt a place in thine own experience;
and he that doubteth, or looketh back, is worse than an infidel.
For, unto thee has come much, in joy, much in peace;
and the little discouragements that make for faltering,
if the heart will be kept singing, will make for the brighter joys, the greater appreciations,
and the glories of the Son may be made the brighter in thy experience.
For, live each day as if ye were to meet Him the next; in that expectancy, in that glory,
and let not those things that would hinder have a place in thy consciousness.
Thus do HIS children, His brethren, manifest that faith that removes mountains.
(Q) : When may I expect the promise given me to be fulfilled?
(A) In waiting, in being overanxious, oft does one delay the appearing.
Open rather thine self, and know that He will speak with thee.
"Be not afraid, it is I."
Then, when self is open, there will come - not one, but many - such experiences.
(Q) How may I open self more than I am doing?
(A) By entering more into the holy of holies, into the inner self.
(Q) : May I have a message on the lesson?
(A) In self may there be manifested that love,
even as He showed in thee, in the experiences in the ministering with and for Him;
and the promises that were made thee ARE true,
if self will be kept in that way in which that spirit of love, of faith, of hope, of charity,
may be kept in His way.
"If ye love me, keep my commandments" is ever the call of Him.
(Q) : Why do records entities are making come constantly to me, and a desire to know more about them?
(A) As has been given thee, there were those experiences in which those that consecrated
and set themselves as individual souls to accomplish definite conditions in the experiences
and the affairs of the sons of men, were the records kept by self.
Then, this experience of seeing, feeling - visioning, even, at times
- the records made by entities, by groups,
is just a portion of self's development towards those marks of higher calling
as may be set only in Him.
For, through the glorying in Him, and not in self,
do we become conscious of that He would accomplish THROUGH us.
So keep, even as was said of her of old,
"She pondered these and kept them in her heart,"
knowing that there would be revealed - even as they may be put to service for others
- that as each soul may need for the stimulation of ITS soul in a broader,
better service in His name.
For, there be no other name given under heaven whereby men be saved.
(Q) Please explain what was meant in the Life Reading given 
that he would be offered work on the 15th of May?
(A) The way was opened; and ye may assist him in understanding
what is to be done in the material and mental self,
for the carrying on is to only give the understanding
in the relationships to time, space, condition, relations, and individuals.
(Q) Any message for the group as a whole at this time?
(A) Take that as has been given, that ye - each soul - enter into the quietness of self
and seek to know His bidding with thee at this time.
For, as it has been given, there is a cause - a purpose
- for which the group was called, and enjoined,
that each study to show self approved unto Him,
avoiding the appearances of evil,
RIGHTLY dividing the words of truth, life, light, and love;
and by thy conversations, by thy deeds day by day,
make manifest that love He has given, He has shown, in the earth.
(A) In thine own experience comes the answer
to that which shows forth the love which is manifested
in those that seek to know His way.
Be not weary in well-doing.
(A) Seek to show forth that which has been given,
in that there may be presented through the activities of self that glory in Him.
For, as much may be forgiven as there is love shown.
Keep that as He gave, that all present themselves in that way which keepeth in the light.
(A) In the presenting of that which is found in self's own experience,
study to show self approved unto Him.
For, as given, he that seeketh to know He will in no wise cast out.
For, love exalteth.
Love manifested in the daily life, then, gives more and more
those expressions of His grace in a material world.
(A) In showing forth that which is manifest in thine experience,
let the love that was manifested in forgiveness be in thee,
that there be no envy, no strife, no knowledge
of other than good works through the activities of self.
For, in glorying in the knowledge of the Father comes more and more
the manifestations of the Spirit of the Christ.
"Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these, my little ones, ye do it unto me."
(A) In the power of the name is there glory and love
shown to all those who seek to know, to do His biddings.
For, unto him that is faithful in the few things is there given the ruling of many.
Then, keep the way that thou hast set before thee; knowing that His presence abides ever.
(A) In the presenting of self's love for the ways He would have thee go,
look not back upon that which would make afraid;
for they who turn their faces to the light show forth
in their speech, their actions, their lives,
that love even as He has given,
"If ye love me keep my commandments."
For, they are not grievous to those that seek to know His way.
(A) Study to show self approved unto Him, rightly dividing the words of truth,
avoiding the appearance of evil, that thy love, thy goodness,
be not evil spoken of. Glory in the Lord, in His promises,
day by day, that in thee, through thee, may come many that call Him blessed.
(A) "Let not thine heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me,"
knowing that unto every good work is the love of the Father shown through the Son
to those that would bless His holy name.
Not in envy, not in strife; rather in the little kindnesses,
even in the ways that present themselves in every manner,
whether in the home, in the street, in the associations one with another.
Keep thy paths clear.
(A) In thine presentation of the love as manifested through those that would know His way,
seek from the inner self to know that He would have thee do;
For in the promises in Him does the love of the Father made manifest through Him
become expressive in the acts of the mind, the body, the ways.
For, His ways are not past finding out; neither are they hard to those
that would show forth His love till He come again.
For, He will not tarry, if those that love Him will but manifest His love in the earth.
(A) That that is set before thee in measuring the ways that He would have thee go;
For, as the love of the Father was shown in the life of the Master,
so may His love in thee be shown in the hearts, the minds, the souls,
of those whom ye contact day by day.
For, unto him to whom much is given much is required;
yet who would turn back that they may not press on to the ways
that His love passes all understanding and is shown forth in the life day by day?
(A) As thy ways are His ways, glory in the love that is shed on thee.
Pass it on.
For, in giving does one receive that glory that He gave;
so did the glory of the Father shine on the earth.
Even though there be trials, disappointments,
His love enables all to know, to understand, to comprehend,
that He would have each do day by day, here a little, there a little.
(Q) ['s husband]:
(A) In thy daily walks let His light so shine in thine own self
that those ye contact may know that the love of the Father
is being shown in thy daily conversation, thy daily activities.
For, as He gave, he that would show forth
the love of the Father will keep His ways day by day.
For, glorying in self is as the activities of self-exaltation,
but glorying in the Father, in the Son,
is showing forth that He bids thee do day by day.
What, then, are His biddings?
"Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, thine soul, and thy neighbor as thyself!"
(A) In showing forth the love that He manifested, study thy ways, thy going in, thy coming out.
Know that, he that seeks shall find; to him that knocketh will He open the door,
and - as He has given - "My ways are not thy ways" unless ye keep the way of the Lord.
In thy glorying, let self be as naught; that His glory may be manifested in thy acts day by day.
(A) In showing forth His love, know "As ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."
For, as self manifests to thy brother, so is the Father glorified in thee.
The manifestation in any act is the reflection of that purpose in the heart.
Keep the heart clean.
Keep the purposes in Him;
For He is the way and the light.
(A) Glory in the Lord, that the ways that He would guide are the ways in which the soul may know Him better.
In the love of the father he gave the Son.
In the love that self would show, in keeping His ways day by day.
For, His ways are not grievous; nor are thy hid from any that would seek to know His face.
(A) In manifesting that love as He has shown,
just be kind one to another; not in vainglorying, not in hardness of heart.
Rather in the little things that bespeak of a mind that oft speaks with Him.
Not in that which would make for vainglory,
but rather that takes hold on the things that are oft despised of men
yet shows forth the love of the Father for His children.
For, as the father pitieth the children,
so does the heavenly Father have mercy on those that would glory in Him.
COME YE, MY CHILDREN,
IN THAT YE HAVE ALL BEEN CALLED
UNTO THAT WAY
WHICH WOULD SHOW FORTH
TO THY NEIGHBOR, THY BRETHREN,
THAT THE FATHER LOVETH HIS CHILDREN.
WHO ARE HIS CHILDREN?
THEY THAT KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS DAY BY DAY.
FOR, UNTO HIM THAT IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE
IS GIVEN THE CROWN OF LIFE.
THE HARVEST IS RIPE,
THE LABORERS ARE FEW.
BE NOT WEARY
BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN
THAT WHICH HAS SEEMED TO TROUBLE THEE,
FOR THE WAYS ARE BEING OPENED
TO THOSE THAT SHOW THEMSELVES
FAITHFUL AND TRUE.
FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD
IS NEAR AT HAND.
