"This is not the mortal self, the self you see, that is able to do these
things. It is a truer, deeper self. It is what you know as God.
God within me, God the Omnipotent One working through me, that does
these things. Of myself, the mortal self, I can do nothing. It is only when I get
rid of the outer entirely and let the actual, the I AM, speak and work and let the
great Love of God come forth that I can do these things that you have seen.
When you let the Love of God pour through you to all things, nothing fears you
and no harm can befall you."

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Matthew 16:24
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them,
Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross,
and follow me. Mark 8:34
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23
To deny himself means to forget your personal life and begin to live for
others. take up his cross daily means to let God express through man through
ideas, thoughts, words and acts. Follow me means to live the life like Jesus.
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a
teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God
be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the
second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not
tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I
speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the
works. John 14:10
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that
dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is
within you. Luke 17:21
The first thing you do in the morning - contact God by focus on a single point and be
silent. Then let the inner,
deeper and truer life express itself through you. The meaning of life is to forget
yourself and express God Within through
Love to all things.
