Entering into the presence of here and now, beyond the realm of word doctrine or thought.

The Inspiration of the Almighty, when it has come unto you, shall lead you into all things." It leads you straight into the Presence of the Father realm, in which the old ideas of "start-stop," "begin- end" ceases to exist, time and space, being a limitation of the manifest world, passes away when the Light of Truth removes the veil of personal sense is dissolved into its native nothingness.

The Inspired Presence is eternally in expression. It comprehends neither beginning nor ending, as does the manifestation we know as Adam who only lives by outer appearances. Things come and go, but the Inspired Presence in which you live, move and have your being is there forever and when you are awakened to the Divinity within and move and have your being -lives and moves and has its being in you, mortality is dissolves as it has no reality.

In the mental, un--enlightened world, we live in a place of fear and lack,  where a little health is made manifest as a life must, subsequently it will lapse into sickness as we cannot hold our self in Life as Humans. Some form of limitation, expressing lack in physical or mental condition, usually follows a little wealth, but in the Fathers Presence, to which Jesus was constantly calling our attention, there is no coming nor going, there is only ISNESS. The Spirit is constantly in action and in manifestation on the unseen side, the original creation, only perceived by that inner Christ Self.  Our human sense of life becomes a never-ending stream of manifestation, good and evil, sickness and health, but when man aligns himself with the inner Christ, and gives it a chance to express ITSELF, life to the fullest begins to manifest.

Hence, when the statement made, “Man is always in his right place," this is true and eternally so, providing he is aligned with the INNER FATHER the substance of all form. There is, then, no getting out of expression or loss of expression; it may change as the infinite impromptu pattern of Spirit brings to him a newer and higher flight of manifestation, but from that, instant he can never be in and out of the Expression of Soul. It is wonderful to contemplate the Presence of Spirit, the Presence of this Substance called God, and the escaping from the mental plane of coming and going to the realm of Now where the flowers grow.

Formerly man thought that by prayer, he caused God to come into action, to heal or provide for him, or that he started the Power into action that would help him in a time of need, by thought or word spoken. However, once he is awakened to the Presence of Now, he knows that the start and stop processes of Life are gone forever, for there is no place he can go where the Now Presence is not expressing IT to its fullest. That is why Jesus said, "Take no thought for the journey, the purse, the robe," etc., knowing that the taking thought was the anxiety and fear that they would not be, or could not be, made manifest at some distant point. Awakened to the Presence which is ETERNALLY HERE AND NOW, which leads him into all things.  Man knows that the moment he aligns himself with the God Life, through the recognition of the Presence, the invisible manifestation becomes visible, and the inaudible becomes audible. It is impossible to start and stop God. Moreover, God is all Life IS, here, there, and everywhere.
The old idea of praying for a job, or a place in which to earn a living, gives way and entirely falls into disrepute in face of this marvelous revelation of Jesus the Christ, the ever-manifesting Power of the Now Presence. The contemplation of this Presence will cause you to see the utter impossibility of being out of place or out of expression.

Once our mind is relieved of the burden of trying to make something happen, or trying to get into expression, man will relax in the Divine Activity of finding his expression going on always as he or she is still and knows the truth. He enters in and comes out at pleasure, but the Power goes on forever it never stops. He may withdraw or retire, so to speak, but the Divinity is constantly in expression. The command, "Cast your burden on the Lord," takes on a new and delightful meaning. The terrific effort of holding himself in place of Love and Peace subsides, and the Inspiration of the Almighty leads him into new and lovely patterns of Spirit where there is no need of concentration or fervent petitions to God.

Once you are aligned to the Power of Now, you cannot stay in the endless manifestation and out flowing of the substance that already is and does not need mans approval. The flowing of the substance through Jesus was no more difficult to feed five thousand that it would have been for one. As long as Consciousness is aligned to the Presence, the Inspiration keeps leading the body into all things keeps on working.

It is wonderful to contemplate the ways of God. "His ways are past finding out;" no man can designate the precise manner in which the healing shall take place, or through which temple body it shall come forth. The great secret, "I have a way ye know not of," is the sure and certain way out of all difficulties, for it is the way into the Presence of here and now in which there is no starting or stopping of the Power.  A constant stream of manifestation goes on always. It is wonderful.

You are moving in this Inspired Presence-in the midst of this "Thee" of which it is said, "Heaven and earth are full of thee",  -full of the substance of God, full of the Presence of total freedom from all lack or fear of death, willing and ready to come into expression at the slightest invitation. "Behold I stand at the door and knock" is but a line of poetry until you understand it is the urge of Spirit pressing upon you for expression. The Presence is seeking a body – Spirit seeking embodiment through you.

At the place of meeting with the Presence of the ascended Jesus, all things are suddenly reversed, and life superabundant starts to manifest in your experience. A man no more thinks of God as healthy or wealthy, these being terms with which the mental limits Life associate. Life-God-is not rich as man thinks of riches - He is not healthy or well, God IS, AS YOU.

These limitations will be dropped off when the mind is spiritualized to see the way it is in reality.
In this Inspired Presence in which you live, move, breathe, and have your being, all of the qualities which you tried to make true by words of faith are part and parcel of the grand whole. The effortlessness of life—the glorious, radiant, untrammeled expression—takes place without pomp or ceremony, beyond word or thought—only in silence we behold the working of the Father.

In this place of the Presence of a loving Father, the only office of Man is to accept and let the manifestation take place through him by recognition. He finds the inspired memory he knew in the beginning to return.  In the Presence and in the memory of the beginning, the entire substance of consciousness is ready and waiting to be called into action by recognition. The simplicity of this stupendous idea must be as automatic and natural as the coming of dawn. The moment any thought is taken on the subject, it becomes vague, hypothetical, and impossible, and it seems to recede into nothingness. If you cannot accept the Gift and use it freely, then no amount of begging or beseeching will bring it to pass.

The glorious impromptu pattern of the Presence causes old beliefs generated in human destiny dissolve and their evil pictures break up and pass away, and allow the Divine Destiny to come into instant manifestation. If you be in the Spirit—the Inspired Presence—you are no more under the curse of the Law. Note the word "curse." The law of belief, with its hard and fast destiny, and its evil path of problems, is the curse, which continually operates upon the man who is “working” with the Power instead of coming into alignment with the Power and letting it have the same glorious freedom of expression that we see in the record of creation.  “And the Lord said, let” (whatever He said had to be let into expression), whatsoever this very Lord speaking within you says, must also be “let” to come forth in its own way and after its own unexpected design.

The Lord speaks to your Lord constantly, through the means of desire and says, “I will give you the desires of your heart” – but man will not, because he has a “start-stop” idea of God or good.  Sometimes he thinks God is in expression and most of the time He is not, as problems of all sorts arises and confusion sets in.  All this veil of human thinking and dual powers must be eliminated in order that the one presence, the now Presence, may give you the desires of your heart.

Do you believe it is possible for you to have the desires of your heart?   Perhaps they have become so distorted and twisted that you do not recognize your desires in their primal purity and beauty and have found none of them possible.  When you align yourself with the Mind of Christ, through the Recognition of the One, here, there, and everywhere, then you will know that the desires fall into manifestation as the pictures fall upon the motion-picture screen.

There is no conscious effort in the Presence of faith; the desires given you as fast as you are able to take them.  It takes a big, free spirit of Life to begin to take “good”.  We have so long been schooled in evil, that the traditions of misfortune, the necessity of problems for spiritual growth is diminished almost into non existence that we are surprised at the simplicity of the Inspired Presence, and continually return to the old cast-off ideas and try to make it work for us.

When you begin to feel the Presence here, there, and everywhere, you will understand what a glorious thing it is to be in the Spirit.  “Cast your burdens on the Lord” and go free.  Do you hear?  You?  Who are reading this line, are invited to come into the consciousness of the ascended Christ Jesus and from that moment you will move in a path of inspiration where all thing will begin to work for the good.  “This is the way, walk thou in it.”  Do not turn to the right, or to the left, everything you do, everything you say, and everywhere you go, will the Inspiration guide you.  “I will walk in you and talk in you” becomes a fact, and is no longer demonstrable in the old way.

You have cast the whole burden of thinking your way out of the human intellect on the Lord, and you are going free into expression.  You are moving with the Inspired Presence, and are moving into the impromptu patterns of your Divine Destiny.  In this Presence you are free from the curse of the Law, no matter how intense or how evil it has been.

.. This Inspiration of the Almighty coming into you is the Life Stream passing from the invisible into the visible — it is "stepped down," as it were, into visibility. The door has been opened and He who knocked for admittance is entering into an eternal expression. Do you begin to understand the living, moving, and having your being in the One, instead of outside it, where there is only confusion? The duality of life gives way before this Inspiration, and the possibility of the fulfillment of God's promises is seen and experienced as this is our heritage.

"Without faith it is impossible to please him" sounds like a personal teaching; it is only put in the simplest form to bring it down to the most darkened understanding. It is impossible to please God (allow His power to be released) without the absolute acceptance of this Presence, here, there, and everywhere —in hell, in your worst enemy, in the most iniquitous pit conceivable. We are beginning to see what Omnipresence, Omni-potence and Omni-science mean.

Is God everywhere, actually, or, is that just a theory you have been following in your human reason?   If He is everywhere;  does that mean everywhere to you,  or does it still mean God is only present in certain places that man has especially sanctified,  called an above Heaven or a below Hell?

  1. If God had not been present in the mass of corruption in the tomb of Lazarus, no Lazarus could have come forth.
  2. If God had not been present in the tomb of Jesus, crucified as his body was, then no resurrection would have taken place.
  3. If God is not found in hell, devil, sickness, death, then these things will persist in their own individual way, living and sustaining themselves by your thought. It is wonderful when we begin to approach this One-ness and drop the dual nature of God and man.

Acts 2:27-28 (KJV)

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. [28] Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

No wonder Jesus appeared so void of sympathy when they told him Lazarus is dead. Knowing that the Now  Presence was everywhere — in everything, in  the lowest sinner and the highest priest—why should he feel sorry or condone the evil of belief, knowing that the recognition of the Presence of Christ  would instantly shatter the beliefs of evil manifesting as a separate power? Do you hear those of you who still fearing lack, disease and the fear of death?

You are beginning to move into the eternal Presence where time is no more, even Now — yes, are farther into it than you think. The invitations, "Prove me and see," and "Enlarge the borders of your tent," are but encouraging words,  indicating that you can and will eventually recognize the Presence Jesus prepared for us, and cause the manifestation to come forth in a greater and more glorious form.

John 14:1-4 (KJV)

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [2] In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. [4] And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

All the old seeking for the how and the why, looking for methods of healing fall by the board. Never will the power express twice in the same fashion—Spirit's infinite variety will take care of that—no two manifestations of God are identical. No set word or thought will heal all cases of a given sort. Hence, you see that in coming into alignment with the Place Jesus prepared for us, you discover you have automatically done the right thing, said the right word, given or withheld for no apparent reason whatsoever.

You are beginning to see why you were told, “Go thou and do likewise," and how the false modesty or fear of the human mind began a series of questions and objections. "The former things have passed way. Behold! All things become new." and so the old questioning gives way. You are not called upon to do anything, which you cannot do perfectly, if you align yourself with this Loving Presence here and now and the performance of it will be after the manner of inspiration, which will make it definitely original and keep it entirely out of the path of competition, compromise, or opposition. Your expression will be the one and only expression of its kind -— not that it may not resemble many others, but it will have that “peculiar something" about it which causes the world to say "success," which is merely the automatic expression of the Inspired Presence. Do you begin to see what is the "height, breadth, width, and majesty" of the Presence of which Jesus spoke so often?

"God works in a mysterious way His wonders to perform" — then why waste any more time trying to find the "how" of the expression, as it is only the Father within that is doing the Work? "At a moment you think not, I come" — at the moment you align yourself with this Presence and drop off the thinking of the how and why does this Inspired Expression come into manifestation, the bridegroom appears. Endlessly and without beginning is the Power going on. You may have been out of step with it, and hence find yourself in a far country feeding on the husk of doctrinal opinions, or you may be sitting at home in the midst of all manifestation, but until you make the gesture, “I must return to My Father”  you cannot feel the action of this Power.

The brother of the Prodigal was downcast because of the fatted calf, and complained to the Father. "Son, all that I have is thine; thou art ever with me." There is no report made that he "heard" this, because if he had, he would have risen up and given a banquet himself. You are told, "All that I have is thine"; but that doesn't do anything until you realize that, when a thing is offered you, you must take it, not thinking” I do not deserve this”. Most of us go about complaining of our prodigality or our abundance, never using either one of them. When you "arise," you do not have to go anywhere physically, but you certainly do go somewhere in Spirit: straight into the alignment of the  living Presence; and the Father, seeing you a long way off, comes towards you — the manifestation instantly begins to come into the picture, and it flows steadily until every empty measure is filled.

I like you to contemplate this,  being in the Inspired and Inspiring Presence—that everything you do or say is blessed automatically, and that everyone you contact is blessed automatically,  whether he accepts it or not. “You shall go in and come out and find pastures." It is wonderful to know that you are going in and you are coming out (states of consciousness) carry eternal automatic blessings transmuting everything into embodiment of all you need, the Word becomes Flesh.

When you are doing everything automatically in the Name or Nature of Jesus Christ, you bring into manifestation the Inspired Presence, and the word then becomes flesh and dwells among you.
"I will recall to you whatsoever I have said unto you"—I will recall the forgotten promises and words, which you have lost in the memories of human doings. Do you believe it is all possible, you who read this line? Can you sense this moving into the Inspired Presence of here and now, where the Power automatically works?

"My father worketh hitherto, and I work" — the Power is always in motion, and when man recognizes this,  he stops his puny efforts to make things happen and "lets" the glorious Inspired Presence express itself through him; then he works, or carries out the mechanics. Now living in this awareness, disregarding the limitations of the physical law imposed upon him by thought, birth, breeding, education, race, creed, nationality, or any other thing he ascends into the Heaven that Jesus Prepared for us to live in right here on earth.

"Behold what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us." Have you beheld this glorious thing called Love, which already has been bestowed upon us? Have you felt the Presence of the ascended Jesus, are you sensing this Inspiration of the Almighty, which is leading you into all things?
It is wonderful, dwelling in this Inspired Presence with the Inspired memory of being in Him from before the world was founded and the never-ending stream of life pouring out more than we ask or think.
"For in Him we live and move and have our being," and inversely, "For in us He lives, moves, and has His being."

Oneness — Wholeness — the Presence of here, there, and everywhere, that is where I abide and have My Being. How about you?  Let me know what you experience after you have meditated on the content of this letter.
