Hello Divine, Innocent Ones!

Thought You would like to see this email concerning tonight's Gathering. It is a Phoenix Gathering that I attend now and then.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We continue our study of the book “Living between Two Worlds” by Joel S. Goldsmith.  We have almost completed this book.  I will let everyone know what our next book will be by next week.

 January 20th. 2003.fficeffice" />>>

God IS or, just IS, the Is-ness of Being.  All being “Is”. Nothing can be added to Infinite Being. Do you remember, when the Mas­ter was asked about, the command­ments, and out of the Ten Commandments he selected one, the first commandment: Thou shalt have no other Gods before Me, God... God... God... Thou shalt have no other gods before “Me”!!!.>>

>>

What is God? As far as God can be explained, we think of God AS... power... and so the command­ment is, Thou shalt have no other power than God that is, Thou shalt not acknowledge that anything, but God, is power. Can you imagine... if, you could accept God AS the only power, what a change would come into your life? I'll go along with you on that and, confess that, if I could accept God wholly and completely; if I could realize God wholly and completely AS the only power on earth that, my life would be transformed also.>>

>>

There must be a moment of transition ,when we go from that intellectual agreement, to that place of spiritual agreement  that I spoke of,  the place where a feeling takes place within you of agreement:  "Why yes, that is the truth, the only I feel the truth of that One power." Thou shalt have no other, God. God, we're told, is Law. Now that is a very astonishing statement, "God is the only Law," because now I am going to face you with a startling statement. At least, startling to me. It's a question. Is there a law of disease? Is there?!!!>>

>>

Is there a law of disease? Thou shalt have no other Law, but God. Is there a law of disease then, what is perpetuating disease? What is con­tinuing disease? What is causing disease, if there is no law of dis­ease? Of course we're told, “in ac­cordance with your faith so be it unto you”. Therefore if you have faith in (mortal sense), a law of disease, so it must be unto you. If you have belief or confidence, that there is a law of disease, so it must be, unto you. But can you at this moment, begin to feel somewhere deep down within you, not upstairs in your head? But can you somewhere deep down within you, begin to feel an agreement, a feeling of God, AS the only Law, the only Being, the only Cause?>>

>>

Think, because this is the point that I am leading up to... Think... there is nothing in all this world to pray for or against. There is noth­ing in all this world to use God power against, since there is no devil, there is no power apart from God, there is no law apart from God. There is no law of sin, no law of disease, so no longer do we have to turn to God to overcome these, to help us rise above them, to de­stroy them or remove them.>>

>>

And that is the function of this teaching that I'm giving you today, this teaching which we may call IS... Just the two letters, I-S, “IS”... Just as simple as our previous teaching, that which brought The Infinite Way into existence, also a two letter word, A-S, “AS”.. God expressed manifest, AS you and AS me, God appearing AS your Being and my Being. God appearing AS... God manifest AS this uni­verse... No selfhood apart from God,  since God appears AS this universe; no condition apart from God, since God AS the Substance and activity of this universe. God appearing AS!!!!!>>

>>

And doesn't that logically lead up to this? God IS! And “IS” is All there is? And this IS has neither good nor evil. This IS has no point of comparison, since it always, eternally, immortally IS what IT IS, and that “IS” is Spirit. It isn't some de­gree of human good, nor is it some degree of human evil. It just IS, spiritually, harmoniously, joyously, eternally, infinitely, immortally IS... IS.. Now just think, Law is, but not good law or bad law. No, the only Law, which we call God. God IS>>

>>

Power IS not good power; not strong power; not bad power; not evil power; just power. One power, that's all there is. Thou shalt have no other God no other power.. there is only One power and that power, IS.  It doesn't oppose anything. No use praying to it to overcome your enemy. No use praying to it to overcome sin or sinful de­sires or appetites. No use praying to it to overcome disease, since there is only One power, and the power that is, IS God.>>

>>

You see the state of conscious­ness that we must be coming to now, after these years of the study of The Infinite Way. The state of consciousness to which we must be coming is, a state of consciousness called IS, resting in that IS.  It IS.... Think of the dilemma, of the church, without a devil to preach against, to oppose, to protect from. And now think of our dilemma, if we don't have to meditate, or pray, in order to get God to do something for us, since God, good, already IS.>>

>>

There is a Hebrew prayer in the Old Testament: Hear Oh Israel, the Lord our God is One: O-n-e, One. And... Mrs. Eddy, many, many years ago so definitely saw the meaning of that, that she uses it as one of the basis of Christian Science, and re­peats that prayer in her textbook, and calls attention to the signifi­cance of it; “Hear Oh Israel the Lord our God is, One... One...” With God AS One, we have no opposite, and no opposition. With God AS One, we have only One activity, One Being, One Cause, One power, One Law. It may take a day a week a month, for you to learn this prayer, of Hebrew scripture, and get the feel of its rightness.>>

>>

The feel of its rightness is prayer. The feel of its rightness is your communion with God. The feel of its rightness is your treat­ment. Now it is legitimate, to voice or give thought to Hear Oh Israel, the Lord our God is One, but it is­n't sufficient. Somewhere deep within you, must be that prayer, as a continuing state of being, until this feeling comes to you, this feeling of assurance comes to you, this feeling of agreement: Why yes, the Lord IS One. The Lord IS One. There's no other power. There's no other being. There is no devil. There is no Satan. There's no op­position to the reign of God. There are no conflicting... presence or powers. There are no conflicts within Me at all... since my Lord IS One, One!!!. There's no conflict within Me because of One, and that One IS.>>

Love and blessings to all.
