Today we begin this discussion, with this one truth. There is only one God! God is all; all is God. We are God. We are not gods separate from one another we are God. There is only one presence. That Omni-presence is God, infinite, absolute, and impersonal God. We are that presence, for there is no place that God is not. We live and move and have our being in him, in that perfect, absolute, impersonal All.
As we come into a realization of this truth, our not knowing will began to lose its grip on us. Like physical darkness, not knowing is a nothing, an un-thing. Light does not have to struggle with darkness to overcome it; it has only to shine. We do not have to struggle with not knowing; we have only to see, to know, and to feel this Truth, and our not knowing will dissolve into its native nothingness.
As you read and study these lessons, we want you to “Think Deeply Before Concluding this Matter.” Therefore we will provide you with this quote from Dr. Kinley as you begin your study. Dr. Kinley stresses the importance of thinking on a matter before reaching a conclusion “… Nevertheless, we must, for our own Eternal welfare, regardless of our present so-called Church affiliation, keep an open mind to proven facts, which Satan, the Adversary, who was created to oppose the TRUTH, is always present to influence us in the wrong direction.
Now, here once again, we encourage you to think deeply on these truths, “There are two aspects of God, the universal and the personal aspect. Most people know a lot about one aspect but little of the other.” We are going to share with you both aspects, and once again, we say, “THINK DEEPLY BEFORE CONCLUDING THIS MATTER.”
The universal aspect of God is the Universal Power we can use at will. The personal aspect of God is the Person of God moving as He Wills.
Universal power is mental power. It is the divine nature of our being when God created us. The power within us is a reflection of the omnipotent. As we are created in the image of God, we have the universal aspect of God within our spirit. We are creators of our own reality, the microcosm in the same way as God created the entire universe, the macrocosm. Man is to rule his world like God governs the universe.
The universal aspect of God is the realm of inspiration, creativity and genius. It is the power of the universal mind, that is accessible by everyone without exception. The individual mind is connected to the universal mind by thought. The ability to think makes us conscious creators. The better a person is able to think, the more intelligent he is. Intelligence is what separates one level of being from another. We are all equal aspects of God’s creation, but we all manifest his power at varying degrees.
Thought and Knowledge are one. Thought leads to knowledge and knowledge influences thought.
Choice is an illusion created by those in control for those who are not. To be in control, you must know. It is knowing how things work and understanding what is going on that gives you awareness of the governing dynamics of reality. It is awareness that puts you in a position of being a master player instead of a pawn on a chessboard.
Mental power is spiritual power because Mind and Spirit are One and the Same. With the power of the universal mind, you can accomplish all miracles and do great things. The power is a natural power because it follows natural laws. We might think that certain things defy natural laws but that is because we are seeing things from only one level. Natural laws exist on every plane of reality, both the physical as well as the mental planes. Laws if the lower plane are governed by laws of the higher plane. Therefore everything supernatural is actually natural when we have an understanding of a multidimensional universe.
The universal laws are essentially the whole process of Divinity, Consciousness or Energy in motion (Emotion).
When we understand these laws and apply them in our life, anything we want can be created.
Because the same laws that natures uses to create a forest, a galaxy, or a human body can also bring about the fulfillment of all our desires.
All things in the universe have a connection with the universal mind. Nothing can exist without that connection. All things consist and have their being by the universal mind. We are connected to everything else through the universal mind. Separation is an illusion for we are all one.
We can use our mind at will. All power is within and is absolutely within our control. This is referring to mental power which is the universal aspect of God. We can all train and develop our skill in using mental power. Visualization, affirmation, reality creation, mental influence, hypnosis, sub-lima messaging and subconscious programming are all forms of using mental power.
Using mental power to make things happen is what the concept of True Magic is fundamentally about.
Magic is the control of the visible world through invisible means. Magic in its absolute form is purely mental. Magic Is properly referred to as Manifestation. What you create in your mind becomes manifested in physical reality over time. The Law of Attraction is whatever you focus on most of the time, you get. That is why we all create our individual realities, by the thoughts we think.
Holistic health and alternative medicine use Magic to manifest healing. Our physical bodies are simply channels of our energy bodies. Consciousness affects our state of being in all aspects. It is the metaphysical understanding of bodily function in holistic health surpassing the understanding of formal medical science that enables curing of many incurable diseases and physical conditions.
The universal power of mental Magic is neutral. It can be used for either good or evil. What differentiates between Black Magic and White Magic is the intent of the user. Just like a person can pray another well, a person can also pray another sick. Sending thoughts of love, joy, peace, well being and happiness to someone will influence that person’s mind in a positive way. Sending thoughts of intimidation, discord, doubt, weakness and discouragement will influence his mind in a negative way.
Realizing the psychic nature of our thoughts and learning how to use them consciously and effectively enables us to be much better at creating the reality we desire in account of the greatest good of all. There is nothing wrong with developing our psychic abilities and expressing our God given powers for the betterment of life and the universe, but the problem comes when we are so content with the universal aspect of God that we overlook or deny the existence of the personal aspect of God completely.
