"Let this mind be in
you which was also in Christ Jesus." -- Philippians 2:5
twelve doctrines of Jesus Christ, This is to say that the one method of
Jesus Christ is presented in twelve statements or settings. A diamond
has many polished facets and it takes them all to make it shine in its
full beauty. The truth has many ways in which it can be expressed and
all are required if some people are to believe in its beauty and
brightness. Each of the twelve lessons sets forth the whole doctrine in
its own way.
consider the first lesson. It is the first idea with which mind
everywhere, in all ages, has begun when proclaiming that outside of,
and greater than any power exhibited by anything in nature, or in man,
is a being called God.
lesson in Truth is the word "God." Have you ever heard that there is a
marvelous power in every word? It contains its own potentiality. You
can see that if every word contains its own potentiality, then that
word which all the world agrees contains the greatest power must be the
greatest word. Plotinus (A.D.250) lost himself seven times in a trance
of ecstasy by thinking over the word "God" in his mind. God was the
beginning of all. God is the presence of all. The use of the word by
Plotinus, Porphyr and Spinoza did not solve the mystery of existence
for them, however. They yielded to death and feebleness, even falling
into sickness sometimes, like other men and women. There was something
lacking in their teaching, something lacking in their understanding of
God, for the ideal of God is told as, "My words are life unto those
that find them and health to all their flesh."
Christ had quite a different idea from these men, even though they
loved the name of God so devoutly. "In my name preach the gospel, in my
name heal the sick." "If a man keep my sayings he will never see
death." What name was that which Jesus Christ used, which had such
omnipotent energy that even when it was spoken it would heal the sick
and raise the dead? The Name is within every mind. If it is spoken it
will be like letting loose the electricity which the physicist stored
been taught from the remotest times that we have the Name stored within
us as concealed energy. It can perform twelve great works, by our
words, whenever we use it, even without very close relation to it. If
we were to use that Name directly it would instantly work all the
miracles recorded of all the mighty men of old. The speaking of words
for performing cures is an ancient custom. The Zend-Avesta tells us
that it is by the Divine Word that the sick are most surely cured.
Sometimes the word is thought in the silent mind. It is not always by
the repetition of our words that the cures are wrought. It is by the
whole lines of reasoning. The study of the lines of reasoning which
bring out your healing power is called the study of metaphysics. The
word, metaphysical, means "above and away from the physical."
are ideas. We study ideas. But ideas bear an important relation to each
other. They make a course of reasoning. Some people study mathematics
to train their mind to logical processes. But the study of mathematics
does not make thoughts and words powerful to heal the sick. Some people
have believed that there is a magical power in numbers just as there is
great potency in words. Cornelius Agrippa of Cologne (1486), ascribed
to numbers an efficacy. But no mathematician is a healer because of his
mathematics. He must use the Healing Word, or the reasoning which
brings down somewhat of the power of the Healing Word.
You may be
filled with wonder as to what the Healing Word or Name can be. It
certainly is not the word "God", for these men who used that word
continually were not mighty healers. Spiritual Science does not tell
you the Name. It gives you the most direct reasoning which the word
"God" brings out, and consequently gives the best healing power of any
line of reasoning in the world.
twelve points of doctrine put forth in these lessons in plain terms.
All the time you can trace other points of the same doctrine, finer and
more subtle, streaming under them like fires from purer altars of
meaning than words can kindle. The very finest fires of meaning I
cannot tell you in words; you must be of an esoteric or spiritual
nature to read them while I am talking.
metaphysics the Science of Life, because to know pure metaphysics is to
renew the life and make death and accident impossible.
metaphysics the Science of Health, because to know metaphysics is to be
perfectly well and free from liability to sickness or disease of any
metaphysics the Science of Strength, because to know metaphysics is to
be strong beyond any strength you have ever dreamed of. Nothing is too
hard for those who are strong with the strength of metaphysics.
metaphysics the Science of Support, because whoever studies the science
finds his support coming to him in a new way, and he cannot come to
actual want, no matter who would have failed if they had been put in
his place. The prophecy of Jeremiah and of Isaiah comes to pass to
whoever studies metaphysics without blundering in his reasonings.
"Bread shall be given him, his waters shall be sure."
metaphysics the Science of Defense or Protection, for no ill can come
nigh the dwelling of one who puts his trust in the principle taught by
this science. "His place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks."
science of Life, Truth, Love, Substance and Intelligence is for all who
look into it profoundly. Outside of metaphysics the world is seeking
for for its life by physical performances; working at machinery, books,
commerce, cooking, washing, eating, governing one another, employing
one another, killing and using animals, wearing flesh and bones into
the grave to make a living. But the whole system of living by material
efforts is wrong. "Turn unto Me, for why will ye die?" said the Spirit.
Death is the reward of hard effort to live by material actions. If you
will look into the Science of Spirit you will see that your life is
meant to be sustained by the Science of God and not by the science of
Spirit, therefore it is the Science of Spirit which we are to study
when we open the reasoning with the word "God." God is the name for
that Intelligence which out of its own substance bestowed upon you that
intelligence you now have. Intelligence is Mind. Thus it is plain that
by opening our study with the word "God" we are beginning the study of
alone we are taught we are to live and be strong. By Mind alone we are
supported and defended. The further on we get in the Science, the more
confident we become that it is by the words that proceed from the mouth
of God that we are to live. Jesus Christ taught this. He was ministered
by angels, and said: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." This means that God has
a way of giving freely from His Mind words that will make alive. Jesus
Christ told the people that His words were Life. He spoke of the manna
which the Jews had eaten while wandering forty years in the wilderness
as being so far from the real bread that the Jews all died. He showed
over and over again that the Word is a bread that will keep life in the
body forever. "He that eateth of this bread shall live forever."
as possible, the twelve lessons which we now begin will take the
absolute meanings of the words of Jesus Christ. If we take the absolute
meanings, dear friends, we are obliged to say that our life needs no
material or physical effort to keep it forever. It needs only the true
Word of God. It is not profitable to say that our life needs no
material support. It is only profitable to say that our life does need
the Word of God. The Word of God IS Truth. God works only in Truth.
throw true words down into the arena of human life and their power will
be God's power. The power of God is freedom. Jesus Christ said that all
who knew Truth would be free. What do you want to be free from? Sin,
sickness, death; all the evil men fear is contained in these three
words. From these the Word of God sets absolutely free. Miracles of
healing have been worked by thousands of men and women who taught true
words concerning God in some of the statements we find set forth in
order by Spiritual Science.
lesson has this healing strength. Keep your mind open and free to
receive that lesson which fits your own disposition best. No matter
what type or character you are or what disposition of mind you have, I
tell you that one of these lessons strikes your key-note, and by
speaking over and over the words which that one lesson explains, you
will let the fire of your own native healing gift from Jehovah kindle
health within your own body and in those of all your neighbors.
cured a terrible case of leprosy by one of these lessons. It was
probably the second lesson. He raised the Shunamite woman's child to
life by one of these lessons. It was probably the third lesson. He
increased the loaves of bread to feed a hundred men. This was the
fourth lesson. He would not have called it the fourth lesson, but he
would have felt in his mind all the strength of the fourth lesson as we
lesson finds out what your mind is seeking and names it. Can you name
now just exactly what your mind is seeking? You would soon be set on
the right track for finding what you are seeking if you could name what
you want. The naming of what the mind of the whole world is seeking is
the first statement of Jesus Christ, and is the first lesson of Moses.
It is the foundation thought, even in the minds of the insects. It is
not seeking Good? Why do you move your right hand? You move it to get
your Good. Why do you breathe? You breathe to get your Good. Why do the
stones lie still and wait? They are waiting for their Good. Why does
the fly? It flies for its Good. Everything moves and waits for its
Good. So you see that the Good draws everything. The Good which you and
I want governs everything we do. Therefore the Good which you are
seeking is your God.
was called the God-intoxicated man, because he spoke the word God so
much. I am convinced that if he spoken the word Good, instead of the
word God, he would have come into a nearer relation to his God.
that God (Good) created. The Good which are seeking created you. Just
that Good which you want is the combination of words which brought you
forth. The honest statement that "My Good is my God" has the power to
set the mind to a key which is nearer to its normal tone than it is now
thinking. John said that in the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was God. He also said that out of the Word all things were made and
without the Word was nothing made. Paul said that a veil is forever
over the face when the Word is read because so many untruthful things
have been spoken of God.
take the word God for your starting point, you will not start so near
the foundation feeling of your mind as you will if you take the word
GOOD. "I am seeking my Good, therefore I am seeking my God." The devout
poet who wrote, "I was athirst for thee, the living God," would have
found healing power beginning to stream forth into his life like a fine
white fire if he had struck his lyre to the chord, "I seek my Good. My
Good is my God." Therefore in the Science of Mind you may take for your
first idea one word. It is the word "Good." In the science of words you
may take the word Good and let it lie before you like a great white
stone. It has a revealing power which the word "God" has not.
Revelator, speaks of the white stone. The white stone is a word. The
word is Good. It is the name of what you want. It is the nearest
approach to expressing what is in our mind that Science has thus far
given us. It is evident that Science will give us the inner stone if we
use the outer stone wisely. As we acknowledge that the Good we are
seeking must be our God, because it pulls and pushes us all the time to
see if we cannot come nearer to it, we must find ourselves better and
acknowledgment that "I am seeking my Good, and my Good is my God," is
telling a simple truth. It is so simple that the tiniest child can say,
"I am seeking my Good, and my Good is my God, because it draws and
pushes and moves me on." The child who tells this simple truth is
telling aloud what the little stones are whispering without words, and
the little baby who lisps this simple truth will be fed and clothed by
the ever drawing closer and closer to him of his Good.
should take the unspoken sentence which lies like a hidden jewel under
the jagged covering of your thoughts about the things you do not like,
I would read it, "There is Good for me and I ought to have it." There
is nothing but has in itself the conviction that there is Good
belonging to it that it ought to have. The prince reels from the
banquet hall, seeking the Good he believes he ought to have. The thief
runs from the daylight seeking the Good he thinks he ought to have. But
none of them speaks the simple truth about his movements. If any one of
them did he would come nearer to finding his Good. God, the Omnipotent
Good, works through the word of Truth. Get to speaking the word of
Truth from the first to the last statement, and God will be found
working for you and through you, with almighty power.
name of God is Good, and the first name of the Good is God. "There is
Good for me and I ought to have it," says the unconscious instinct of
the worm crawling at your feet. When you look at the worm and tell the
truth about it, why it moves and why it keeps still, you will be in
league with its life. It will feel your unity with it. When you look at
a drunkard, or miser, you will say he is seeking his Good. His heart
will be better satisfied the instant you speak out what his unspoken
instinct is feeling. He does not say so. If he should say so his life
would come nearer to being a satisfying one. The moment anybody speaks
out the Truth of his life he has spoken the Omnipotent Principle.
unconscious truth is that there is Good for me and I ought to have it.
Nothing can kill that unconscious feeling. It is indestructible. It is
omnipotent. Thus the Omnipotent Truth is kept hidden in the stillness
of the mind of man and the mind of the rocks. The Omnipotent Truth
shall not be hidden in the stillness any longer, and the satisfaction
of the living things will come when they are told that the reason they
move, or do not move, is for one Good.
Scriptures we read, "Prove me. . .and I will pour you out a blessing."
"In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy paths." To
acknowledge God is to admit we are seeking our Good. It is well to give
one day a week to acknowledging that we are seeking for our Good. We
tell what our Good is. Is not our Good the free life we want? Do we
want a burdened, obstructed, hampered life? Out of the word Good name a
good which is Good to you.
life of the lily is the name of its Good. As the lily works out its
life problem, it is telling as plainly as it can speak that its Good is
its free life. You may name your Good as your free life. When you speak
for yourself you speak for the world. It is the one chord to which, if
you speak it, all nature will spring free. There will be no opposition
to that truth when you speak it.
name your Good as free health. All nature will say "Amen!", if you
proclaim that the Good you are seeking is free health. Nothing wants
its health interfered with, it wants unlimited health. There is a unity
of feeling between you and the stones and the thief, when you tell
aloud, or consciously, what they feel unconsciously about their health.
The moment you feel this truth, and speak it, the chord between
yourself and your neighbor chimes into one tone. You catch a new breath
of health and your neighbor catches a new breath of health. Sometimes
when you say to the sick man, mentally, that the Good he is seeking is
his God, and God is free health, he will get well in five minutes. His
mind was unconsciously groping around for the Divine Word that could
heal him, and you spoke for him.
prophet who felt there was something lacking in his life said: "We
grope for the wall as the blind." It is better for us to speak our own
words, but if somebody opens the door for us it will teach us to open
the door ourselves. That is, if we do not speak our words and so are
not satisfied with Good, another may speak, and our satisfaction will
say that the Good we are seeking is our free life, we certainly do feel
the breath of new life blow through us, When we tell the lifeless plant
that the Good it is seeking is its free life, and its Good is God, for-
God is its free life, we shall see the plant revive. Everything rises
to acknowledge Truth. You see that is God, for Good is God. Sometimes
you will feel the reviving life stream so hot, like a fine elixir,
throughout your being, while you are naming God as free life, that
whatever you touch will feel thrilled with a quick sense of pleasure.
God works in Truth. Tell the Truth of God and the Omnipotent God is
can resist the Very first proclamation of Truth if we let it be spoken
through us. There are many names of our Good. They are all names to
which all the universe of worlds nod their heads and oppose not when
they are named. The irresistible name is Good. The irresistible name is
God. It is an idea which is in everything, everywhere, and therefore
you speak an omnipresent idea when you say: "I seek my Good; my Good is
my God. My Good is my free life. My Good is my free health."
name of the Good we are seeking is strength. All things look for
strength. They love strength. The baby laughs at every waft of strength
through its little frame. The insect runs and rolls with speechless
delight at every quiver of new strength. The Good it seeks is strength
unlimited. It wants free, boundless strength. So do you. If you name
your Good as unlimited strength, you will feel free and strong at once.
As you look at some feeble woman, and think further that the Good she
is seeking is unlimited strength, she will let her mind shine with
yours. She has felt that unconsciously. She will feel strength
consciously. Everything you tell the Omnipotent Truth to, that its
strength is God and God is its strength, will rise and be strong; and
you will be stronger the more you proclaim the irresistible idea which
all creation feels. It is only naming God. It is telling the truth of
names of Good which we name, surely our heart-strings will chord with
one which will bring satisfaction into our life. So hungry is the world
for satisfaction that it has been set down that the problem of life is
how to live and think so as to get satisfaction.
sciences of man have not started their reasonings near enough to the
foundation idea of mankind to obtain this end. At the word "God" many a
mind rebels, because it has become bruised by trouble and
disappointment. At the word that there is Good for everyone and
everyone ought to have his Good, each mind agrees.
principal point of truth is that satisfaction comes through Mind. Mind
speaking truth through the lips, or thinking Truth consciously, can
bring all the satisfaction to the world which the world is seeking. No
material process can bring health. By a metaphysical process health
will quicken and thrill mankind. Nothing material can strengthen
people, but the Omnipotent Truth can strengthen them with all the power
name for God is support. God is your support. A you turn to the right
or the left, you turn for sustaining. You breathe for support. You hope
for support. Thus one name for your Good is support. To tell any man
who is poor that the Good which he is seeking is support, is to tell
him a truth which his mind has held unconsciously always. The chords of
his mind chime when you speak the Truth that God is his support, and
his support is his God, because it is Good. God works in Truth. That
statement is Truth, therefore God works for that word. It is not Truth
to say that man depends on any kind of work for his support. His work
is not the Good he is seeking. God does not work in the lie which a man
tells when he says he is seeking work. He must tell the Truth and God
will work for him.
another name for substance. Plato and Spinoza both called God the
substance of the universe. All metaphysicians have called God the One
Substance. The one support that man is looking for, that will
absolutely satisfy him, is that kind of support which will not fail
him. Let him sit down alone and tell the truth about what kind of
support he is seeking. God works in Truth.
neatly, tries to cover up the main purpose of his life. He tells all
kinds of stories to himself and others about what he is seeking. Often
he tells that all he asks is just enough to feed and clothe and house
his family. Let him tell the honest Truth -- that he seeks for
unlimited bounty. Nothing can possibly satisfy anybody short of
unlimited supply. God is the idea of unlimited supply which men keep
covered so deeply within their minds. If you name your Good, do not
fail to say: "My Good is my unlimited support, my unfailing support."
The Good will soon bring you marvelous support. New provisions will be
made for you. There is no limit to the bounty of Truth. The substance
of Truth is shown by the happy prosperity which can come to you, and is
sure to come, when you speak Truth.
Christ said that all who learned His doctrine would have a hundredfold
more possessions in this life. Tolstoi, the Russian writer, declared
that Christians do not have a hundred-fold more than they would have if
they were not Christians. But this is because they are not really
Christians. In order to be a Christian one must tell the Truth of God.
One Truth is that God the Good careth for us. We are told by Jesus
Christ to take no care for ourselves. To sit down and proclaim to the
universe that "My support is my Good, my Good is my God, thus God is my
support," is to stir the air to work with mountains and sees to bring
us our new provisions.
Christ said we would have tribulations while getting our Good support
by telling the Truth, but he said: "Be not afraid, I have overcome." He
meant He had come over all the worldly way of being supported by
telling the Truth, and that it would surely come our right with us.
Tribulation are the oppositions which we meet by telling the world we
get our support by thinking and speaking the Truth. Tribulations are
the feelings we have when we first set forth as grown men and women
into the way which is exactly opposite to out former way of thinking.
It is a tribulation to attempt to cast away all anxiety. It is a
tribulation to give up trying to get our living by our old mind.
practicing the saying that your Good is your support, your old business
will not be interesting to you. It will leave you, yet you will have
your living. By and by you will have great and wonderful miracles of
support come to you. Yet, for a long time, some of those who have told
the Truth about their Good being unlimited supply may not have the
faintest idea where their supplies are coming from. They need to say
that their Good is Intelligence. This is a truth that will soon work
out. There will come a time when they will know that their unlimited
supplies are in certain places, and they need have no fear of ever
losing sight of the rich provision of the Good. Good is God. God is
Substance. God is Spirit. Therefore your supplies are to come from
Spirit. Your supplies, coming from Spirit, are Spirit. It will nor be a
tribulation to practice providing for yourself by telling the Truth
after a little while.
Good you are seeking is defense, protection. Another name of Good is
defense. The movements of our bodies are all with the hope of being
protected from evil. To be explicit in naming our Good, which we feel
is for us, we should not forget to name the Good as defense. To every
living creature we say, "God is your defense." It is another chord
which the unconscious mind is glad to agree with. There is a bond of
unity between us and all things. Fear leaves us. Fear leaves us by
telling the Truth. Meta- physicians, in tracing the cause of evil
conditions, have all agreed that fear of evil is the only evil. So, by
telling the Truth that our Good is our defense, we see that in every
place where we proclaim that defense, there is the Good we are seeking.
That Good is our God, thus is our defense.
Life, Truth, Substance, Intelligence, are names of our Good. We may
tell that our Good is Truth. This will cause our lips to speak Truth.
Pilate asked, "What is Truth?" The earliest Egyptians said, "Truth is
God." The continual speaking for several years, by the Christian
metaphysicians that "Truth is God" finally brought them to where they
could see exactly how Truth is God. It is because the telling of the
exact Truth about what Good is, is an irresistible energy for bringing
Good to pass.
formerly supposed it was truth to say sickness was good for them. They
thought it was something sent of God. But God is Truth. Truth is a
healing principle and not a sickening principle. They found much
sickness following them up all the time. As soon as we say, "God is not
the author of sickness; God is Good, Good is Truth, Truth is God," we
are brought to where we cannot declare that sickness is Good. Good is
God, therefore God is Health.
the Good we are seeking. Love is the highest name of God. Love is the
fulfilling of the law. At the height of our spiritual teachings we find
God covering us with love. We find ourselves loving all things and all
people. Edward Irving put his hand on a dying boy's head and said, "God
loves you." The boy lived.
It is well
to say that God is unbounded, unlimited love. God is our love. There is
an instinctive seeking of all things for love. Love is another name for
life. Many a dying man has been saved by feeling his mother's soft
kisses on his forehead. Many a woman has lifted her dying face and
lived when sound of her son's voice was heard calling her name. Love is
God. Do not forget to say, 'The Good I am seeking is Love."
heights and depths and splendors of Love have not been told. It is the
name of God which Jesus Christ used. He said it so much that little
children came close to His knees. Poor neglected women followed Him.
Blind old beggars clung to His clothes. High dignitaries came by night
to speak with Him. I do not suppose it would be possible to name the
Good by the magic word Love too often. Love is not something which
comes to us in any one man, woman, or child, and then goes away. That
is only the sign of love. Love, that is God, is eternal, infinite.
lesson of the Science of Mind tells the foundation idea of Mind. It has
been called the Statement of Being. Being is that which IS. It is
certain that the Good that is for us is the Good we ought to have. How
shall we arrive at our Good? How shall we get hold of our Good? Not by
working with our hands, for countless ages of labor have failed. It is
by the Jesus Christ method only. The Jesus Christ method is the Truth
method. Jesus Christ means Truth. The Jesus Christ method brings the
fulfillment of all our expectations. "I know the thoughts that I think
toward you, to bring you an expected end." This expectation of Good has
been a long time waiting for us to declare what our expectations are.
To expect Good and to be very definite in the mind that it IS coming,
is to see it coming.
people would have their Good come instantly if they could name it, and
have a clear idea of how it ought to be. A little paralyzed girl heard
the Paris doctor, Bouchert, praised so highly for his healing power,
that she went to see him, and by seeing him she was cured. A blind
woman heard a shoemaker praised so highly for his power in prayer that
she went to him, and she felt Jesus Christ's teachings so plainly that
soon her eyes burst open. They both had a strong and clear idea of how
it would seem to be well. They felt that those men could heal them.
have a clear idea of how sweet life, free and unburdened, must be, look
to this Science to bring you this life. And declare very plainly that
sweet, free life is your Good. It will come streaming through you like
the elixir vitae of the ancients. Maxwell, the Scotch doctor, caught
sight of this fine, fleet life-fire that streams through all the world.
think that health is Good, have a clear idea of how sweet, joyous
health would feel. Name it as the name of Good. Have a clear idea of
what is your Good. It will come and settle upon you. It will sift
itself through you. It can be lapped up by all the little tongues of
Good is the only word that can make all things. Good with its
descriptions is as high as our mind and speech have ascended. There is
no spot or place where the idea of Good as ours cannot come. It is the
one conviction of animate and inanimate things. It has never been
beaten out of anything. Being undefeated and never to be defeated, it
is omnipotent. It always knows that it is right. It is omniscience.
Know it, for it knows all things. Let the magic name Good be the name
of all names in your mind. It is the name that Jesus Christ comes to be
understood by. After speaking over the names of the Good, let your mind
add the name of Jesus Christ. There was never any other character in
history who gave orders to keep repeating his name. Many people will
testify how wonderfully they have been led by repeating this name.
thing which the name of Jesus Christ teaches is humility and
willingness. It is the meekness of character he manifested which brings
us the victory over evil. He said, "The meek shall inherit the earth."
Once a man who had become completely discouraged determined to let his
dog lead him around, for he felt that his dog was more like God than he
was. He went following the dog until it led him to a wise and good
woman, who in turn led him to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
meekness of obedience is the mystery of Godliness.
Statement of Being was continually in the mouth of Jesus Christ. Let it
be in your mouth also. Be definite when you give this statement of
Good, which is the Statement of Being. Expect to see it work quickly.
Truth is not slow. Truth is quick. With Truth, all is NOW. Jesus Christ
said: "Now is the accepted time."
not have to make things new for you. In Truth it was so from the
beginning, as the first verse of Moses reads. All Truth is waiting for
you to say plainly what is your Good. The speaking out continuously
what we have felt and thought intuitively, is the first movement toward
demonstration, toward manifestation, toward satisfaction.

The Good I
am seeking is my God,

and do even repeat now. They hold their breath while speaking it. It
means: Good beyond Good. Far beyond even our ideas of Good, there is
Infinite Good, awaiting our words.
exhorted Israel, "Take with you words and turn to the Lord." The first
words we will take with which to go to the Lord are statements of our
Good. That is as high as we can think or speak.
special time to make the Statement of Being. This will make you a great
thinker. The Mind of God will think through you. The words of God will
speak through you. The joy of God will sing through you. The skill of
Spirit will work miracles through you. The judgment and beauty of God
will inspire you. The love of God will melt the hard lot of mankind
before you. You will be so one with your words that you will be able to
say with Jesus Christ, "I and the Father are one." You will drop off
the garments of flesh. You will see that by speaking Truth you are
Spirit, and that by speaking Truth are Omnipotent.
give up your mind to Truth you are all God. Your substance being the
Mind of God, by speaking Truth, you can see that no disease, neither
death nor sin, can touch you anymore than disease or sin or death can
touch God. It is through realizing this that so many strong young
students have said that God had set his own name in their foreheads.
They read where Moses was told to tell the Israelites that the name of
the Good which was working for them was "I am that I am." If ever the
name of this Good, which is your God, comes to you, do not hesitate to
speak it. All the names of your Good which can name are right names.
Write down the names of your Good which you are seeking. Think over the
names of the Good which you are seeking. Speak aloud the names of the
Good you are seeking. That will be naming God. And such a practice will
be manifested in your life. God is not slow to come into the life of
him who acknowledges the Good.
