The mind of God (The Source)

200136299-001.jpg

There is a Cosmic Intelligence that is in all things and through all things.

This is the one real substance. From it all things proceed. It is Intelligent Substance or Mind Stuff. It is God.

Where there is no substance there can be no intelligence; for where there is no substance there is nothing.
Where there is thought there must be a substance which thinks.

Thought cannot be a function; because function is motion, and it is inconceivable that  motion can think. Thought cannot be vibration, for vibration is motion, and that motion should be intelligent is not convieable. Motion is nothing but the moving of substance; if there be intelligence shown it must be in the substance and not in the motion.

Thought is not the result of motions in the brain. Thought is in the life-principle that animates the brain, in the eternal intelligence, which is the real you. The brain does not think, YOU think and expresses your thought through the brain.

There is an eternal intelligence that thinks. Just as the spirit substance of us permeate our body, and thinks and knows in the body, so the Original Spirit Substance, God, permeates all nature and thinks and knows in nature. Nature is as intelligent as us, and knows more than us; nature knows all things.

The All-Mind has been in touch with all things from the beginning; and it contains all knowledge. Our experience cover a few things, and these things we know; but Eternal Spirit’s experience covers all the things that have happened since the creation, from the wreck of a planet or the passing of a comet to the fall of a sparrow. All that is and all that has been are present in the Infinite Intelligence that is wrapped about us and enfolds us and presses upon us from every side.

All the encyclopedias that have written, all the websites have created are but trivial affairs compared to the vast knowledge held by the mind in which we live, move, and have our being.

You are thinking substance, a portion of the Cosmic Substance; but your “physical body/mind” is limited, while the Cosmic Intelligence from which you sprang, which Jesus called the Father, is unlimited.

All intelligence, power, and force come from this Source.  One of the greatest teacher  Jesus recognized this and stated it very plainly. Over and over again he ascribed all his wisdom and power to his unity with the Father, and to his perceiving the thoughts of God. “My Father and I are one.” This was the foundation of his knowledge and power. He showed the people the necessity of becoming spiritually awakened; of hearing his voice and becoming like him.

We are immersed in the Universal mind and that mind contains all knowledge and all truth. It is seeking to give us this knowledge, for our Source delights to give good gifts to its children. The prophets and seers and great men and women, past and present, were made great by what they received from God, not by what they were taught by others.

This limitless reservoir of wisdom and power is open to you; you can draw upon it, as you will, according to your needs. You can make yourself what you desire to be; you can do what you wish to do; you can have what you want. To accomplish this you must learn to become one with the Source so that you may perceive truth; so that you may have wisdom and know the right ends to seek and the right means to use to attain those ends, and so that you may secure power and ability to use the means.

Resolve that you will now lay aside all else and concentrate upon the attainment of conscious unity with The Source. Because this is the only way to  get to where you want to go.

Wisdom

Our brains, bodies, mind, faculties, and talents are the mere instruments we uses in demonstrating greatness; in themselves they do not make us great. A man may have a healthy brain and a good mind, strong faculties, and brilliant talents, and yet he is not a great man unless he uses all these in a great way.

 

That quality which enables us to use our abilities in a great way makes us great; and to that quality we give the name of wisdom. Wisdom is the essential basis of greatness.

Wisdom is the power to perceive the best ends to aim at and the best means for reaching those ends. It is the power to perceive the right thing to do. The person who is wise enough to know the right thing to do, who is good enough to wish to do only the right thing, and who is able and strong enough to do the right thing is a truly great person.

Wisdom is dependent upon knowledge. Where there is complete ignorance there can be no wisdom, no knowledge of the right thing to do.

Our knowledge is comparatively limited and so our wisdom must be small, unless we can connect our mind with knowledge greater than our own and draw from it, by inspiration, the wisdom that our own limitations deny us. This we can do; this is what the really great men and women have done. Our knowledge is limited and uncertain; therefore we cannot have wisdom in ourselves.

Abraham Lincoln had limited education; but he had the power to perceive truth. In Lincoln we see pre-eminently apparent the fact that real wisdom consists in knowing the right thing to do at all times and under all circumstances; in having the will to do the right thing, and in having talent and ability enough to be competent and able to do the right thing. Back in the days of the abolition agitation, and during the compromise period, when all other men were more or less confused as to what was right or as to what ought to be done, Lincoln was never uncertain. He saw through the superficial arguments of the pro-slavery men; he saw, also, the impracticability and fanaticism of the abolitionists; he saw the right ends to aim at and he saw the best means to attain those ends. It was because men recognized that he perceived truth and knew the right thing to do that they made him president.

If you develop the power to perceive truth, and you can show that you always know the right thing to do and that you can be trusted to do the right thing, you will be honored and advanced; the whole world is looking eagerly for such person.

When Lincoln became president he was surrounded by a multitude of so-called able advisers, hardly any two of whom were agreed. At times they were all opposed to his policies; at times almost the whole North was opposed to what he proposed to do. But he saw the truth when others were misled by appearances; his judgment was seldom or never wrong. He was at once the ablest statesman and the best soldier of the period. Where did he, a comparatively unlearned man, get this wisdom? It was not due to some peculiar formation of his skull or to some fineness of texture of his brain. It was not due to some physical characteristic. It was not even a quality of mind due to superior reasoning power.

Processes of reason do not often reach knowledge of truth. It was due to a spiritual insight. He perceived truth, but where did he perceive it and whence did the perception come? We see something similar in Washington, whose faith and courage, due to his perception of truth, held the colonies together during the long and often apparently hopeless struggle of the Revolution.

We see something of the same thing in the phenomenal genius of Napoleon, who always knew, in military matters, the best means to adopt. We see that the greatness

of Napoleon was in nature rather than in Napoleon, and we discover back of Washington and Lincoln something greater than either Washington or Lincoln. We see the same thing in all great men and women.

They perceive truth; but truth cannot be perceived until it exists; and there can be no truth until there is a mind to perceive it.Truth does not exist apart from mind. Washington and Lincoln were in touch and communication with a mind that knew all knowledge and contained all truth. The same is true of all who manifest wisdom. Wisdom is obtained by reading the mind of Infinite Intelligence.

3 or 4 Words to End all Problems.

Paulo Coelho is one of my sages.

He told this story

A priest from the Church of the Resurrection in Copacabana was patiently waiting his turn to buy some meat at the supermarket when a woman tried to jump the queue.
A stream of verbal insults burst forth from the other customers, and the woman responded with equal vehemence. Just as the situation was beginning to get out of hand, someone called out: ‘Hey, lady, God loves you!’
‘It was amazing,’ the priest told me. ‘At a moment when everyone was thinking about hate, someone spoke of love. All the ferment disappeared as if by magic. The woman walked back to her rightful place in the queue, and the other customers apologised for having reacted so aggressively.’

I think this story is touching to me because  I saw my grandfather do this often, and I saw first hand how immediately it effects people.

Just imagine how you and everyone around you would benefit if you were the anonomous person who yells out ” Hey! God loves you.”  without any furhter dilution or explanation.
