[272] SEEKS THAT NEEDED at this time to enable her
to REACH THE CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS (272-9)

EC: Yes, we have the ENQUIRING MIND, [272];
those DESIRES,
those ABILITIES,
those WEAKNESSES,
those STRENGTHS
that are as a PORTION OF THE ENTITY
at the present time.

In SEEKING THAT which may be HELPFUL
to the BODY-MIND and BODY-CONSCIOUSNESS in the present,
well that THE ENTITY REVIEW in part much that has been given
and that has been learned by the body.

The man, THE BODY, and THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE FLESH
are as but A CHANNEL, A MANNER, A MEANS
through which THE SOUL may THROUGH ITS ACTIVITIES
MANIFEST THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.

MAN finds himself in that STATE where he is SUBJECT TO
THE FAULTS, THE FAILURES, THOSE CONDITIONS
THAT WORK UPON THE WEAKNESSES wherein he has failed.

And, as an INDIVIDUAL FINDS,
THESE WORK THROUGH
ENVIRONMENTAL and
HEREDITARY influences,
also through ASSOCIATIONS.

Yet there is ever the AWARENESS
in the EXPERIENCES of THOSE WHO SEEK,
that the FATHER, THE GOD, THE CREATIVE FORCE,
has PREPARED - has GIVEN MAN, the INDIVIDUAL
- the WAY OF ESCAPE FROM THOSE THINGS that so easily beset.

That THE ACTIVITIES must become the VOLUNTARY CHOICE
of THE ENTITY, THE SOUL, has been
SHOWN, MANIFESTED, GIVEN
IN THE MANNER in which
THE CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS in the earth
was MANIFESTED THROUGH THE LOWLY NAZARENE;

THAT CAME in order THAT MAN through
HIS EXAMPLE, HIS LOVE, HIS PATIENCE, HIS HOPE
manifested through the ATTRIBUTES OF THE SPIRIT
that HE EXMPLIFIED  in HIS ACTIVITY
both as to WORD and as to PRECEPT
- might choose, as He, TO DO
that which is RIGHT,
that which is JUST,
that which is SINCERE,
that which is HONEST
in the ACTIVITIES ONE WITH ANOTHER.

And as He has given,
 "AS YE DO IT
UNTO THE LEAST OF THY BRETHREN,
YE DO IT UNTO ME."

Also He has given,
AS THE FATHER'S PROMISE HAS BEEN TO HIM AND TO MAN
THROUGH THOSE VARIOUS CHANNELS OF APPROACH:
 "YE ABIDING IN ME and I IN THE FATHER,
YE MAY KNOW THAT CONSCIOUSNESS
THAT I AND THE FATHER ABIDE IN THEE."

THAT IS THE MANNER
in which the individual, THE SOUL,
MAY AT THIS TIME
BECOME more and more AWARE
of the CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS.
 
THAT MANIFESTED
BY and THROUGH the man JESUS,
THAT IS THE PROMISE and THE SURENESS
AS SHOWN IN HIM FROM THE FATHER UNTO THEE.

THE WAY IS SIMPLE.

Yet those who would SEEK through
the mysteries of nature,
the mysteries of the manifestations of life in the earth,
or those who would see rather the activities
of their neighbors, friends, associates day by day,
than LISTEN to that which may be had through
THE STILL SMALL VOICE FROM WITHIN,
become in the position of being
troubled and wondering and then fearful;
and then there come those periods
when the SURENESS OF SELF is lacking.

ALL THINGS having FORCE or POWER
in the EARTH, in the HEAVENS, in the SEA,
ARE GIVEN THAT POWER FROM HIM;
that THOSE WHO SEEK MAY KNOW HIM THE BETTER.

HE HATH NOT WILLED,
HE HATH NOT DESTINED
THAT ANY SOUL SHOULD PERISH.

In PATIENCE,  in PERSISTENCY, in CONSISTENCY
of thy MANIFESTATIONS of HIS LOVE
BEFORE and TO and OF THY FELLOW MAN,
YE BECOME AWARE that THY SOUL
is a PORTION OF THE CREATOR,
that it is THE GIFT OF THE FATHER TO THEE.

THIS IS MANIFESTED IN THINE DAILY EXPERIENCE.

That portion of thy body
which is of the earth-earthy
remains with the earth,
but THAT THOU HAST GLORIFIED,
THAT THOU HAST USED AS A CHANNEL
for the MANIFESTATIONS of HIS SPIRIT
- of THY SOUL IN COMMUNION WITH HIM,
THAT BODY will be RAISED WITH HIM IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

That the physical body becomes ensnared, entangled in those things in the earth,
through the gratifying of those desires that are fleshly alone, those that are carnal,
is manifested by the dis-ease, the corruption, the turmoil, the strife
that arises within the EXPERIENCE of EACH SOUL in its THOUGHTFUL ACTIVITIES in the earth.

THE SOUL, then, must RETURN - WILL RETURN - TO ITS MAKER.

[THE SOUL] is A PORTION OF THE CREATIVE FORCE,
which is ENERGIZED INTO ACTIVITY even IN MATERIALITY, in THE FLESH.

Yet [THE SOUL] may, WITH thine own UNDERSTANDING and thine own MANIFESTATIONS,
COME TO BE as A PORTION of THAT THOU BRINGEST IN THY LOVE INTO THY FELLOW MAN,
FOR THY FATHER-GOD,
For thy ACTIVITY TO BE ONE WITH HIM
in those realms of activity and experience that YE ARE AWARE
of HIS PRESENCE, of HIS ABIDING LOVE, of HIS ABIDING FAITH
IN THEE MOTIVATING THEE IN THY ACTIVITIES IN EVERY DIRECTION.

Then, just being KIND, just being PATIENT,
just SHOWING LOVE FOR THY FELLOW MAN;
THAT IS THE MANNER IN WHICH AN INDIVIDUAL WORKS
AT BECOMING AWARE OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE CHRIST SPIRIT.

He hath given that WHERE THE TREASURE IS, WHERE THE HEART IS,
THERE DOTH THE SOUL MAKE MANIFEST THE GREATER GLORIOUS ACTIVITIES
that make for THE GROWTH through THE MIND, THE BODY.
THE SOUL  becomes AWARE of that sphere of activity, that growth
whereunto there has become the experience of HIS ABIDING PRESENCE ever.

In a MATERIAL EXPRESSION as thou hast SEEN IN thine own ACTIVITIES
among thine COUNSELS, among thine HELPS to those that SEEK the material things of life:

How, when and in what way does an individual become AWARE
of the LAWS pertaining to the construction of a sentence in English?

How, where, when, in what manner does an individual LEARN
the rule of spelling a word?

By the MEDITATING upon same, BY SEEING, VISUALIZING, ACTING.

And then the AWARENESS of same is MANIFESTED by the manner
in which the individual puts same into PRACTICE in conjunction
or ASSOCIATION WITH ITS FELLOW MAN.

The KNOWLEDGE may be existent, the AWARENESS in self may be present;
but if the individual DOES NOT APPLY same IN ITS ASSOCIATIONS
- or if it uses some other manner, some other way of expression
than that it has set as the rule or the standard - it becomes of none effect.

WHAT ARE THE RULES, THEN?

As has just been outlined,
YE may become AWARE OF HIS PRESENCE ABIDING WITH THEE
WHEN YE MANIFEST LOVE, PATIENCE, HOPE, CHARITY, TOLERANCE, FAITH.
THESE BE THE MANNERS.

NOT IN THINE OWN SELF!

These as WORDS, these as EXPRESSIONS,
these as VISUALIZED OBJECTS MAY BE WITHIN THINE SELF.

But when YE AS A SOUL,
AS AN ENTITY,
AS AN INDIVIDUAL,
MAKE SUCH MANIFEST
to those ye meet casually,
to those that ye contact day by day
- in CONVERSATION, in EXAMPLE, in PRECEPT;
these THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE SPIRIT
- YE BECOME AWARE
OF THAT CONSCIOUSNESS,
OF THAT CHRIST SPIRIT,
OF THAT CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS
as He gave,
"YE ABIDING IN ME
and I IN THE FATHER,
WE - THE FATHER, I
WILL COME and ABIDE WITH THEE."

When the SPIRIT OF THE FATHER,
when the ACTIVITIES THAT THE CHRIST
- THE MAN gave to the sons of men
- ARE MADE MANIFEST in thine own life day by day,
THEN YE BECOME AWARE of HIS PRESENCE ABIDING IN THEE.

KNOW THE TRUTH.
FOR THE TRUTH IS, as He gave,
THE TRUTH IS HE, AND HIS WORDS.

For He hath given,
"Though the heavens and the earth may pass away,
MY WORDS, MY PROMISE, SHALL NOT PASS AWAY."

Let not, then,
the cares of the world,
the deceitfulness of riches,
the pomp and glory of the earthly nature,
or fame or even to be well-spoken of
hinder thee from APPLYING in thy relationships with thy fellow man
THAT THOU KNOWEST to be the manner
in which YE MAY BECOME AWARE OF HIS PRESENCE.

That offenses must come is true.
But woe to him that bringeth same to pass!

Then, BE NOT IDLE, IN THAT YE KNOW.
Rather LET IT BE AN ACTIVE, POSITIVE INFLUENCE
in the EXPERIENCE OF ALL.
Let LOVE be without dissimulation.
Abhor that which is evil,
CLEAVE TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD.

IN THIS WAY
MAY YE KNOW,
MAY YE BE AWARE
OF HIS PRESENCE WITHIN THEE.

Just as thou hast seen in thine own body that which has brought
the fires of nature, the turmoils of dis-ease, the wonderments even of distress.

Yet ye have seen those influences, those powers in nature
that are MANIFESTATIONS OF HIS LOVE TO MAN,
so that when ye have fallen away, and into those things that BRING such hindrances
in thine life and thine experience - the WAY IS PREPARED.

WHOSE WAY?
WHO HATH PREPARED THE WAY?

MAN IN ANY PHASE OF HIS EXPERIENCE
IS but THE CHANNEL TO MAKE APPLICATION,
or TO GIVE THAT WHICH MAY BE A HELPFUL UNDERSTANDING;
HE is but BEING USED AS A CHANNEL.

EVEN AS THOU MAY BE,
TO MAKE FOR THE AWARENESS IN THE EXPERIENCES OF OTHERS
of HIS ABIDING PRESENCE being IN AND WITH THEE!

Ready for questions.
(Q) May the vibrations of my body be raised to that which will bring purity
and a normal functioning of all its organs?
(A) Apply in their regular order, in decency and in order, in love and in patience,
those things that have been given thee as to the manner of expression;
cleansing thine body in the ways and manners
as thou hast seen,
as thou hast known,
as thou may comprehend more and more,
would make thee as one set apart,
as one dedicating its abilities of every nature
to the service of the fellow man.

Thus may that service bring to thee
the awareness of HIS force, HIS power,
working in and through thy body.

THUS may the vibrations be raised;
THUS may thy body be cleansed;
thus may thy mind have the greater channel,
the greater ways and means of manifesting that
thou wouldst show forth in thine activities
for thine greater, thine better understanding.

(Q) Please give that which will be of help in my present development
to attain the Christ Consciousness.
(A) APPLYING THAT - APPLYING THAT
- which has been so oft given.
LET LOVE DIRECT THEE,
WITH LITTLE THOUGHT OF SELF;
RATHER with the ATTITUDE that
THE CHRIST LOVE,
THE CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS
may be MADE MANIFEST day by day.

(Q) May I sit at the Master's feet and learn of Him?
(A) LEARN BY APPLYING HIS PRECEPTS, HIS LIFE,
IN THINE OWN RELATIONSHIP WITH THY FELLOW MAN.
How gave He when he was called and told that his mother and brethren waited without?
"Who is my mother?
Who is my brother, my sister?
HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER."
What is the will?
"Love the Lord thy God with all thine mind, thy body, thy soul, and thy neighbor as thyself."
Who is thy neighbor?
He that seeks to know more and more of the love of the Father through the Son.
Who is the Son?
He that doeth the will of the Father,
in WHATEVER sphere of activity that may be.

(Q) How could I improve my meditations?
(A) By being, as given,
more and more PATIENT,
more and more LONGSUFFERING,
more and more TOLERANT,
more and more LOVELY
TO EVERYONE YE MEET
in EVERY WAY YE ACT,
in EVERY WORD YE SPEAK,
in EVERY THOUGHT YE THINK.

(Q) Is it best that I marry again and may it be a spiritual marriage?
(A) When there is the answer of THE SOUL TO ANOTHER,
THEN ye may SEEK,
then ye may KNOW,
then ye may ASK
even of the FATHER
and be MADE AWARE
of that YE SHOULD DO
under such circumstance.

For the individual, THE SOUL,
MAY SO LIVE
that the ACTS of the body,
the THOUGHTS of the mind,
may BE ONE WITH HIM.

Let thy LIGHT so SHINE that OTHERS
SEEING THY LIGHT, THY LIFE, may take HOPE.
 
Be PATIENT.
Be PERSISTENT
Be CONSISTENT
in what ye DO,
in what ye SAY.

We are through for the present.
