Building the New Consciousness

My conscious oneness with God makes me one with all who are able to receive the Word at this level of consciousness.  Your conscious oneness with God make you receptive and responsive to all of Truth.  Since God manifests and expresses Its own Being as you, you are as infinite as God, not just a little portion of God.  God does not divide Itself, but manifests, expresses, reveals, unfolds and discloses Itself as you and as me.

The first task of the disciple is to develop that state or quality of consciousness which expresses gratitude.  And because so much of the teaching of the Master is forgiveness, the second task of the disciple is to attain that quality of forgiveness. "Forgive your enemies." - "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you."

There is no room for any person or personality apart from God, so to forgive and pray for one's enemies. is to understand that God is the Life and Mind and Soul of all being. There is no other Mind or Presence.

Never finitize Truth, or God.
