Dialogue on Awakening
"Allow yourself to be in a state of joy and know that when you are in that state you are in a state of God. The rest will happen. When you are in a state of joy, then disappointment falls away. You did nothing to make it go away. But it will always be this proposition that says, there is no logical reason for me to be joyful when I have debts, when I have things around me that are keeping me from being joyful. When my husband doesn't understand me, when my mother-in-law thinks I am less than the perfect wife, when my friends judge me wrongly, when I cannot pay the electric bill, how can I be joyful? And it is obviously less than logical when I say to you that being in a state of joy is the only thing that will change those things that you see around you. It is not those things going away that will allow you to be in a state of joy. It is your making the choice for joy and for peace that will create your thinking patterns which will reflect joy and peace. When your mind is in a state of perfect and perpetual peace, it will be quite impossible for you to have any experience which is not reflective of perpetual peace and joy and love. Changing the script will change the play." Dialogue on Awakening, page 60-61

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
9. The inherent characteristic of the Loving Intelligent Creative Power was LAW & ORDER.
The undeviating order and reliability apparent in creation, even governing the tiny entities ('cells') within the body, were astonishing and far transcended any human endeavor. Therefore, the entire universe was operating under a system of perfect LAW & ORDER.
I realized on ever higher and higher levels of spiritual exaltation that the 'creative power' exhibited intelligent purposefulness and loving concern for all living things. I realized that life was not something nebulous or amorphous but an intelligent loving creative power which I could actually feel within myself as a tremendously heightened state of being, perception, radiance, ecstasy, joy, love. I knew myself to be one with it - filled with it - and I was one with everything around me and one with the sky and stars.
And - most wonderful and glorious of all - the very 'Nature' and 'Function' of this 'Father - Creative Power' was to work in order to create joy, beauty, and comfort to ensure mankind's well-being, to work within mankind to provide interior joy, health and comfort, and to work through mankind, inspiring him with new realization and understanding.
Wonderful vistas of glorious creativity came to mind. Once we became truly 'at one', purified channels and instruments of the 'Intelligent Creative Power', we could gradually ascend in consciousness until we truly expressed through our minds and hearts the very 'NATURE' of the 'Universal Creative Power'.
Then 'life on earth' would indeed become a 'state of heaven' at all times and we would enter into a state of eternal life! [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 15]

"This must surely be the true goal behind creation, I thought. And it came to me with a surge of elation and loving joy, that this was the purpose for which man had been evolved and developed!" [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 16]

"How can I describe for you, my inner glow, my transcendent brightness and brilliance of joy and powerful feelings of love which possessed and inflated my entire being with their intensity until I cried out with the pressure within my mind and heart. It was so powerful it seemed it would entirely dissolve my bodily form." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 1, page 18]

'If you could carry within your mind, a seed - the perfected plan of your most heartfelt goals, and know beyond all doubt, that it can grow and come into perfect fruition, you would see this wonderful seed take on a life of its own which would presently manifest in your life.
'And you could surely move the mountains in your lives - those mountains which stand across your path and prevent you from achieving all that you would like ... mountains which, in times of recklessness and evil thinking have been created by yourselves.
'If you only understood creation and existence, you would be able to live lives of total freedom, limitless achievement and transcendent joy. [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 65]
