By the light all things were made. Man should therefore know that the will of God vested in creation--once it is correctly understood--conveys to his being and consciousness the great fact of life that there is a very real purpose behind existence and that man as an individual is liked with the highest destiny….
We are talking about two distinct phases of man’s existence--the eternal or infinite phase and the finite phase. The infinite phase has unlimited possibilities for soul expansion. But the finite phase also affords a certain freedom of expression. It manifests a God-seemingness and a human-seemingness. Out of this duality man must make his choices….
The moment an individual begins to serve himself, to determine that all that he does will be subject to the functions of the human ego--whether his own or another’s--without recognizing the needs of the Christ in every man and the purposes of the divine plan to be fulfilled, his creative endowment cannot help but be bound by the return of his own disqualified energy.
The secret key to the fulfillment of individual purpose in God is to be found in the invocation of cosmic Grace, in the invocation of faith in what has been called the invisible world. This world need not remain invisible. It has been called invisible because the senses have become inverted to gaze only upon the imperfection of the physical planes. Man has not recognized the perfection of his own God Presence. In fact during centuries of embodiments he has not even known of the existence of that Presence.
Now it is up to us who have been endowed with an understanding of the Law of the I AM, individualized in the Presence of every child of God, to unveil the higher purpose. From time immemorial the blind who have led the blind have succeeded in promoting forms of religion based on superstition that have assuaged human needs without actually supplying man with the basic Law of his own being that would lead to his freedom and self-mastery.
But in the chart of the Presence revealed by the brotherhood of light the manifestation of the God Self, the Holy Christ Self and the human or lower self are perceived as three who agree in one. Through meditation upon this trinity man recognizes at last that the human monad has the capacity, being at the opposite pole from the Divine Self, to obtain grace from the equipoise of the Christ, the universal Mediator, and thus to manifest for all time, point by point, the magnificent facets of the Law as above so below….
Man has been endowed with opportunity; but all around him are those conditions which rob his faculties of their divine potential by inverting the senses of the soul outward upon the screen of the appearance world instead of training them upon the great inner realities of life. We see this inversion of purpose everywhere. It is the cause behind disagreements, behind expressions of hatred and fear. Thus darkness has been substituted for light and hatred for love.
