Solution to world’s problems


Seeing God as omnipresent is the answer to the world’s problems because it helps one to overcome the present conditions of the world. Quarrels among churches, among countries, religions and wars would end because we would see that there is only one God uniting us all. Seeing God in our individual consciousness gives us the spiritual power to heal our ills, limitations and anything else we are lacking. It is our answer to overcome any evil we see in the world today, but we cannot just accept it as truth because it must be proven within our experience. For a holy person to preach these words are not good enough, it is only when we know it in ourselves that we feel the power. There is no power in repeating a phrase because that is only a recitation; in fact there is no power that is not the power of God. What we need is the consciousness of God to express His power through us to enable us to see Him operating universally through others and ourselves, bringing to us what we need to grow and be happy. The kingdom of God is expressed in the harmony and power within.

Second Coming in consciousness


It is not only with the cruder forms of life that we are linked, as human beings, we are moving together with other spiritual beings in a long continuous ascent and are not in ourselves a finality. Where animal life consummates humankind starts, and when humanity concludes divinity starts. When divinity is activated, our faith is detached from earth and elevated to the higher realms of life. This can be found in Christ’s words, “My kingdom is not of this world”, also in the phrase, “Keep your treasure where no man can take it.” Above and beyond our basic drives lies our inner psychic reality manifesting a living world that artist can only try to express in their creative endeavors. These spiritual experiences represent the mystical experience that is beyond the mind and body experience and merges all our hopes and dreams into one final climax. This can be seen in the increased heights of the roofs of the old churches. They defy the laws of gravity while the steeples seem to point to a tangential point that is between the abstract and the concrete worlds in which we live.
As Christians we have chosen the powerful image of Jesus Christ to represent the expression of this tangential point. He embodies the cosmic mind as seen through the universal man. It is not that the material world will one day dissolve into Jesus Christ, but that the ego’s extroverted tendencies will disappear in order that the second coming of Christ might be perceived in consciousness.
