As the offspring of God, only by living in love and harmony can we fulfill the law and maintain health and happiness, either individually in family life, or collectively in our intercourse with the world. As Goethe taught:-
Let the God within thee speak,
Love all things that lovely be,
And God will show His best to thee. [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]
"The discovery of God in yourself is the greatest discovery you can ever make." [Ernest Holmes, as quoted in the December 2020 Science of Mind magazine]
“God is the hand within the glove of human history.” [anon]
"The science of music is the knowledge of how Nature proceeds in this beautiful region of creation in which so much of pleasure for mankind is found, and meet expression for the praise of God. "Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast;" how much more to gratify the civilized and educated ear; to stir with inspiration the prophetic gift; to comfort the troubled heart; and to draw forth the best feelings of our nature." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 20]
The mathematical scales, if followed out regardless of other laws which rule in music, would read like a chapter in Astronomy. They would lead us on like the cycles of the moon, for example. In 19 years we have 235 moons; but the moon by that time is an hour and a-half fast. In 16 such cycles, or about 300 years, the moon is about a day fast; this, of course, is speaking roughly. This is the way seemingly through all the astronomical realm of creation. And had we only the mathematical ratios used in generating the notes of the scale as the sole law of music, we should be led off in the same way. And were we to follow up into the inaudible region of vibrations, we should possibly find ourselves where light, and heat, and chemical elective motions and electric currents are playing their unheard harmonies; or into the seemingly still region of solid substances, where an almost infinite tremor of vibrations is balancing the ultimate elements of the world. Music in this case would seem like some passing meteor coming in from among the silent oscillations of the planetary bodies of the solar system, and flashing past with its charming sound effects, and leaving us again to pass into the higher silence of those subtle vibrations to which we have referred, having no infolding upon itself, no systematic limit, no horizon. But music is not such a passing thing. Between the high silence of these intense vibrations, and the low silence of oscillating pendulums and revolving planets, God has constituted an audible sphere of vibrations, in which is placed a definite limit of systematic sounds; seven octaves are carried like a measuring line round twelve fifths; and motion and rest unite in placing a horizon for the musical world, and music comes [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 39]
Duality is the law of witness-bearing, and the confirmation of truth; - "If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of Me." - John v. 31, 32. "At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death." - Deut. xvii, 6. "He that despised Moses' law died without mercy at the mouth of two or three witnesses." - Heb x. 28. "The dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass." - Gen.xli. 32. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 42]
It runs in all the polarities of Nature. Music, as belonging to Nature - as one of the things which the Great Numberer hath created - is under this Law of Duality as well as that of mathematical ratios and other laws. The Law of Duality in music gives the major and minor systems. As the major is derived from certain primes in ratios ascending, and the minor from the same primes in the same ratios descending, they are inversely related; and these diatonic scales have in the responding parts exactly the same quantities. But as multiplying by 3 three times gives the framework of the major system in the ascending genesis, and dividing by 3 three times gives the framework of the minor system in the descending genesis. They are in this view also directly related. The Law of Duality in music emerges into view from the genesis [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 42]
as the savage state. The savage is the sunken state of man, consequent on falling away from God by distrust and disobedience, and the loss of paradisial converse with Him. We may presume that music in the beginning, when the first human pair sang out with unbroken voices the joy of their hearts, was in the scale to which mankind, risen and restored by God's mercy, have returned. Our last days are thus become like the first again; and the lost dominion of Nature has returned, in the Incarnate One, into the hands of mankind. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 79]
3 - In the third sphere, vibrating things, molecules, atoms, etc. gaseous, liquid, or solid have tensions and forces far beyond the requirements of music, and far above the audible region where musical sounds have been located by the Great Numberer. The multiplication of forces there, and their augmentation derived from sympathy, of which sympathy we have faint illustrations in the region of [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 86]
The sympathy of one thing with another, and of one part of a thing with another part of it, arises from the principle of unity. For example, a string requires to be uniform and homogenous to have harmonics producing a fine quality of tone by the sweet blendings of sympathy; if it be not so, the tone may be miserable ... You say you wish I were in touch with Mr. Keely; so do I myself ... I look upon numbers very much as being the language which tells out the doings of Nature. Mr. Keely begins with sounds, whose vibrations can be known and registered. I presume that the laws of ratio, position, duality, and continuity, all the laws which go to mould the plastic air by elastic bodies into the sweetness of music, as we find them operative in the low silence of oscillating pendulums, will also be found ruling and determining all in the high silence of interior vibrations which hold together or shake asunder the combinations which we call atoms and ultimate elements, but which may really be buildings of wondrous complexity occupying different ranges of place and purpose between the visible cosmos and Him who built and evermore buildeth all things. The same laws, though operating in different spheres, make the likenesses of things in motion greater than the differences. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 87]
The scheme endeavours to prove that the development of harmonies of sound and of colours is regulated by the law of Evolution as gained from the Scriptures
—Youthful impressions regarding my great-uncle Dr. Darwin's views
—My cousin Charles Darwin's views touched upon
—The scheme involves the belief that life developing from the Almighty is the general key to disentangle the intricacies of the Natural Sciences
—A remark of Sir John Lubbock's quoted
—The development of Numbers, the stream of Time, the Sevens of Creation, &c., may eventually be proved to proceed by the same laws, . . . . . . . 9 [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Table of Contents1 - Harmonies]
The following scheme endeavours to show that the development of the musical gamut and the colours of the rainbow are regulated by the same laws. I wish it to be clearly understood that I have gained the evolutions from the mysterious type of Life—a golden thread running throughout the Scriptures, from the first chapter of Genesis to the last of Revelation;—life developing around us and within us from the Almighty, who is its Eternal Fountain. My youthful impressions included the belief that the views of Dr. Darwin, my great-uncle, contradicted the teaching of the Scriptures, and I therefore avoided them altogether. Having endeavoured for years to gain correctly the laws which develope Evolution, I suddenly discovered that I was working from Scripture on the same foundation which he had found in Creation; and as Creation and Revelation proceed from the same Author, I knew that they could not contradict each other. It is considered by many that my cousin, Charles Darwin, gained his first ideas of Evolution from his grandfather's works; but I know from himself that he was ignorant of them, and that his theory of Evolution was arrived at by his close experiments and observations of the laws of creation alone. Only a few months since, after reading his work on "the Movements of Plants," published in 1881, and wishing to be certain that I had not an incorrect belief, I asked the following question—"Did you gain your views on Evolution by your wonderfully acute observations, ignorant of your grandfather's ideas?" The reply was, that he had done so entirely from his own observations. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Introduction1 - Harmonies, page 9]
There is much paradox, and the scheme differs so much from any hitherto published on the subject, that I am aware that, if any link can be found to be wanting in the chain, the defect will immediately be seized upon. I believe, however, that it will be found to admit of clear demonstration. Anyone who has studied the subject knows the difficulties that arise on all sides. In the problem before us, we have to reduce large fields of thought to certain elementary truths. In my endeavour to do this, I have been entirely dependent upon the discovery of the laws of Nature, as my ear is not musical enough to assist me in the matter. "All mysteries are either truths concealing deeper truths, or errors concealing deeper errors," and thus, as the mysteries unfold, truth or error will show itself in a gradually clearer light. The great mystery of music lies in its infinite resources; it teems with subtle elements and strange analogies. A musical note may be compared to a machine: we touch the spring and set the machine in motion, but the complex machinery exists beforehand, quite independent of our will; the motive power is not of our creation, and the laws on which its operation depends are superior to our control. The complex work of harmony is governed by the laws which are originated by the Creator; every note performs what He has willed, and in tracing these laws let us not be indifferent about their Author, but ever bear in mind that the source or fountain of the life and activity of harmonies arises from the Power who created the machine, and who knows how it will act. Let us also remember that we understand this machine but partially, and govern it but imperfectly, as indeed the finite can only, in a small measure, grasp the Infinite; and in any [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, The Method of Development or Creation of Harmonies1, page 15]
"Religion and science are the two handmaidens of God between whom can be no real variance, because they are both divine, both complete, both do the work of their Lord. If they seem at variance, it is only because the dull sense of men cannot understand the beautiful variety, yet the heavenly harmony of their manifestations."—Rev. J. W. Reynolds, M.A. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Diagram XIII - The Twelve Keynotes with Their Trinities, page 38a]
THE above quotation from that beautiful work, The Pendulograph, shows how firmly its author believes that the Almighty Himself will be proved to be the key to His works; a belief frequently expressed also in a striking work, Nature and the Supernatural, by the Rev. J. W. Reynolds, M.A. For many years I have been endeavouring to resolve some of the intricacies of natural harmony with the same views. In the pursuit of knowledge it is eminently important to "avoid profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called" (I Tim. vi. 20), and to remember that facts gained from the study of God's marvellous works, that "ought to be had in remembrance" (Psa. cxi. 4, Prayer Book Version), and the truths of Holy Scripture, can never really oppose each other. Research shows us countless varieties developed by trinities springing from unities, and we find true scientific depth in the Scriptural phrases, where the whole earth is continually mentioned as worshipping the Almighty. This truth is beautifully expressed in the Te Deum Laudamus—"Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty; heaven and earth are full of Thy glory." [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Reflections on the Scheme1, page 43]
"Science has a foundation, and so has Religion: let them unite their foundations, and the basis will be broader, and they will be two compartments of one great fabric reared to the glory of God."—M'Cosh. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Reflections on the Scheme3, page 45]
the present, and the future, developing in geometric progression; as the past retires, the future advances. The rests in harmony correspond with silence in the Scriptures, both limiting and illimitable. But there is this essential difference: musical instruments can only be tuned to a certain pitch, whereas the Bible will never need fresh editions or corrections, but as it always has unfolded, it always will unfold, as it is necessary to meet our higher mental powers. I believe that, eventually, scientific minds will arrive at the conclusion that all the energies around us arise from the laws which regulate the life of matter, and cause the continual development of trinities from unities. Continuity everywhere adapts simple laws to wondrous workings. If we evade the belief in the development of trinities, this scheme falls to the ground. We can conceive no grander idea of the power, wisdom, and love of the Parent of the universe than that of His following out His own characteristics, knowing that at any moment, if His life-giving power were withdrawn, all would crumble into dust. Let us link with this thought these glorious promises— [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Scripture Compared with Scripture, page 47]
"For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."—I Thess. ii. 13.

schools on the hill of Sion—'out of Sion hath God appeared in perfect beauty.' So long as this principle was recognised in musical academies, there were composers of the highest class; devoid of it, the highest order of compositions disappeared." "Power over music does not depend solely on the mere agreement of 'how to do it.' The student in song will never learn the perfection of beauty except from the preparation of the heart. To make a real musician, there must be a sense of the ever-presence of the Creator of all beauty. The boy-musician must begin his day with prayer, and end it with praise. This made Handel, Bach, Haydn, and Mozart. Music is neither dram nor sweetmeat, neither sensual nor intellectual. It is made so now; but in this order of music there is neither joy nor love, thankfulness nor reverence." [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Fragments from Dr. Gauntlett's Last Note-book, page 51]
"So long as music was taught primarily for worship, and to proclaim the immortality of man by the inestimable gift of the Royal Ransomer, it culminated to wonders upon wonders." "Noble teachers yield noble teaching, and from such seed the reaping is noble music. To rear the musician with knightly, faithful, and pure feelings, he must believe in his mission and its reward. The law of his life must be the advancement of his art, or rather God's art, given for the honour of the Deity and the elevation of humanity." "The Apostle Paul tells us that we are to teach one another in music, and the greatest doctor in theology, the mightiest defender of the Faith, has been the giant Handel in his oratorio of The Messiah. We are told that 'the nineteenth century is weary of the religion of Christ,' and the bright smile of the English boy and the sweet face of the English girl are no longer to be gladdened by the teachings of the holy mystery. The Devil is the strongest opponent to music in its right intention." [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Fragments from Dr. Gauntlett's Last Note-book, page 51]
The Major Scales are the type of Creation perfected—man being created, and the Almighty resting—every Major Scale developing the sixth and seventh notes, and the eighth the octave of the first. Therefore, every Major Scale includes the Sabbath, or Rest. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Supplementary Remarks, page 54]
The absence in my mind of scientific knowledge has, I believe, been a great help to me in studying the Scriptures; there is so much apparent contradiction in them. Take one example: "Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief." Do we not feel the truth of this, the two natures thus acting within ourselves?
SVP does not promote any religion; i.e., required belief, dogma or doctrine. SVP does in fact show the scalar causative laws and principles (Natural Forces) operating behind the illusion of Maya, Matter and Nature; or Opinion, belief and Superstition and that which animates same (Spirit) or the Interetheric. [See Sympathy, Supreme Neutral Center]
In the earlier years long ago people witnessed for instance mysterious forces in plants, seeds, wind, sea and nature in general. They assigned names such as angels, gods and goddesses, to these natural forces not knowing there were natural causes, laws and principles activating them. Therefore we can look at these underlying natural causes, laws and principles today for what they are instead of labeling them generically as angels, gods or goddesses. [see false gods]
We know that over the centuries certain concepts (beliefs) have crept into humanity's consciousness. Some of these beliefs have been helpful while some have been (and are) harmful to humanity's progress towards full consciousness. Certain religions hold the belief "God" is an anthropomorphic Deity made in man's image; i.e., and human-appearing entity passing judgment on everyone just as Man's ego does. SVP holds the concept that man is made in God's image; i.e., unlimited spirit or consciousness having a limited physical experience. Man therefore is creative consciousness taking up physical matter to clothe in a physical body and embed itself in materiality to have certain types of experiences. [see false gods]
It has been often stated the underlying substrate/matrix or ground state of the universe is LOVE from which or out of which all things emerge having been stimulated or excited by mind activity of idea or Thought. This Universal Ground State has characteristics of a certain nature that could be better described as a state of "sympathy" as in the sympathy existing between two tuning forks tuned to the same pitch; i.e., sympathetic vibration and/or sympathetic oscillation. Over the centuries this ground state has been called by many names; Mind of God, Spirit, Heaven, The Void, Allah, Brahma, etc. That these terms and concepts have been anthropomorphized is an effect of humanity's efforts to personalize into 3D materiality what cannot be personalized to an outside construct but lies within humanity itself as foundational to its consciousness as co-Creator. It is in fact just the opposite - the mind of humanity is creative, fecund and a mirror expression of Divinity's powers operating within itself. In short humanity has created false gods in humanity's self image instead of knowing humanity has been created in God's image - an entirely reversed conceptualization. The Source of all energy, force and substance originates in this background state or matrix. All energy, force and substance experienced in the 3D material world are resultants or effects of this One Source. So we begin our studies from the only beginning there is.
To proceed then we recognize and hold in abeyance any ego-created anthropomorphic constructs assigned to this neutral, natural and perfectly balanced state of Mind, Energy, Force and condition - the All That Is.
The summary below is a scientific understanding derived from scientific principles and laws. We should not be required to take things solely on faith as has been required for centuries. Any explanation should be founded in known laws and principles that we not be misled. DP
The long and the short of it is we know what sympathetic vibration is and we know what quantum entanglement is; both being basically the same dynamics. All atoms and molecules are composed of the same quantum aliquot or composite parts; i.e., electrons, protons, etc. These in turn are composed of even smaller parts; i.e, photons, quarks and the like. We know then a few axioms:
- There are no atoms or molecules anywhere in the universe that are not composed of these fine quantum particles.
- Each of these particles vibrates and oscillates perpetually to set frequencies and chords.
- Each type of particle regardless of location vibrates and oscillates to the same frequencies.
- Therefore every type of quantum particle is sympathetically connected or entangled with its own type regardless of Time or Space. (see subdivision)
God then is when these minute quantum aliquot parts are in sympathetic resonance or quantum entangled. What happens to any of these parts anywhere in the universe is felt or known by all the other parts in real time. This connecting link or sympathy is what God is. Sympathy is the same dynamic as Love. Such a dynamic real-time connection is "omni-aware" (implying consciousness) and beyond Time and Space. It is everywhere (omniscient), all the time present (omnipresent). Couple this concept with the laws of nature that govern the creation and sympathetic association of everything that is and we have the very wheelwork of nature knowing itself and governing its activities.

"I tried to find God on the Christian Cross,
but He was not there;
I went to the Kaaba in Mecca,
but God was not there either.
I went to to the old Synagogue
and the Temple of the Hindus,
but I could not find a trace of God anywhere.
I questioned the scholars and philosophers
but God was beyond their understanding!
I then looked into my heart and
it was there where HE dwelled that I saw HIM;
God was no where else to be found." Rumi
"The eternally conscious entity - call it by whatever name  we please - moves in cycles as eternal and infinite as itself; it oscillates and vibrates perpetually and is never unconscious of any present condition, be it pain or pleasure, joy or sorrow, shame or glory; like the pendulum of a clock or the sun, moon, or tides, it swings from the one to the other of these conditions, now in pleasure, now in pain, by its contact with the extremes of all varying conditions, like a child which throws up its head and laughing for joy exclaims, I KNOW I AM." Keely, Dashed Against the Rock, underline added
"Keely affirms, with other philosophers, that there is only one unique substance, and that this substance is the Divine spirit, the spirit of life, and that this spirit of life is God, who fills everything with His thoughts; disjoining and grouping together these multitudes of thoughts in different bodies called atmospheres, fluids, matters, animal, vegetable, and mineral forms." [Bloomfield-Moore, Keely and His Discoveries]
"As certainly as the unborn infant's life is that of the mother, so is it divinely true that somehow God's life includes ours; and we shall understand the nature of that relationship when, in due time, we have been '"born again" into the life of the spirit." [True Science]
"The true study of the Deity by man being in the observation of His marvelous works, the discovery of a fundamental, creative law of as wide and comprehensive grasp as would make this etheric vapour a tangible link between God and man would enable us to realize, in a measure, the actual existing working qualities of God Himself (speaking most reverentially) as he would those of a fellow-man. Such a link would constitute a base or superstructure of recognition, praise, worship and imitation, such as seems to underlie the whole Biblical structure as a foundation." [Keely underline added]
"Before this approaching age of Harmony can arrive, the knowledge of God must cover the earth as the waters cover the beds of the seas. Suffering humanity must be taught that "the existence of 'The First Cause' is a necessity of "human thought," and that the only cure for sorrow lies in the helpfulness and the hopefulness of the Gospel of the Son of God. Other religions tell of men stretching out their hands to God for help. The Christian religion tells of God reaching out His hands to man.
The keynote of Christ's Gospel is in the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man; and this is the keynote which the revelation of Sympathetic or Spiritual Physics is about to sound. It will awaken a sleeping world to that "knowledge of God" which is (as defined by Pythagoras) "Truth clothed with light, or absolute verity." [What Electricity Is - Bloomfield Moore]
"But now that we have entered upon a more advanced age in thought, as in all things pertaining to discovery and practical application, or invention, a critical defining intellectual age, we must henceforth depend upon true science for our progress toward a higher enlightenment. Science, as will be seen, embraces religion, and must become, as Keely asserts, the religion of the world, when it is made known in all its glory and grandeur, sweeping away all footholds for scepticism, and spreading the knowledge of God, as a God of love, until this knowledge covers the earth as the waters cover the sea. As has been said, the word science, in its largest signification, covers intellectual achievement in every direction open to the mind, and the co-ordination of the results in a progressive philosophy of life.
"Philosophy has been defined as the science of causes or of first principles, and should be limited, almost exclusively, to the mental sciences. This is the field which Keely is exploring; the knowledge of the "hidden things" which he is bringing to the light is pure philosophical knowledge, in the widest acceptation of the term: the knowledge of effects as dependent on their causes." [True Science see Scalar]
Laurence Oliphant writes as follows on Dynaspheric Force: Recent scientific research has proved conclusively that all force is atomic - that electricity consists of files of particles, and that the interstellar spaces contain substances, whether it be called ether or astral fluid (or by any other name), which is composed of atoms, because it is not possible to dissever force from its transmitting medium. The whole universe, therefore, and all that it contains, consists of matter in motion, and is animated by a vital principle which we call God. [Etheric Force Identified as Dynaspheric Force]
"For, the soul is that child of the universal consciousness ye call God, and is made aware of same by the application of laws pertaining to same in the own self. Thus the knowledge, the understanding, the interpretation of life, lies within thine own self, as ye apply same in thy activity." [Cayce (2823-1)]
"Truth is the unalterable, unchangeable law, ever. What is truth? Law! What is law? Love! What is love? God! What is God? Law and Love. These are as the cycle of truth itself. He is the same yesterday, today and forever - unalterable. I Am That I Am. That is true." [Cayce (3574-2)]

"As a man thinketh in his heart, so IS he (Proverbs 23:7)! Not what man says, nor what man even make out like he does. For we are gradually builded to that image created within our own mental being; for, as has been given, the Spirit is the life, the Mind is the active force that, coordinated with the spirit that is of the creative energy, or of God, gives the physical result that is effective in every sense. Get that!" [Cayce (270-17)]
"In the manner, the way ye attend, ye treat or ye hold - in thy mental self - thy brother's position, or thy neighbor's or thy friend's as thy own, that is the manner, the concept ye hold of thy Creator!" [Cayce 1603-1)]
". . . ye are part and parcel of a universal consciousness or God - and thus of all that is within the universal consciousness, or the universal awareness; as the stars, the planets, the sun, the moon. Do ye rule them or they rule thee? They were made for thy own use, as an individual - yea, that is the part, the thought thy Maker, thy Father - God thinks of thee.
"For ye are as a corpuscle in the body of God; thus a co-creator with Him, in what ye think, in what ye do. And ye change each soul ye contact, literally or mentally - insofar as ye, as an individual entity, are a witness for or against the Lord, thy God . . . no soul may come in contact with the entity without being changed, either in body, in mind or in purpose. And purpose is, of course, of the soul." [Cayce (2794-3)]
"There is no short cut to a consciousness of the God-Force. It is part of your consciousness, but it cannot be realized by the simple desire to do so. Too often there is a tendency to want it and expect it without applying spiritual truth through the medium of mental processes. This is the only way to reach the gate. There are no shortcuts in metaphysics, no matter what is said by those who see visions, interpret numbers, or read the stars. These may find urges, but they do not rule the will. Life is learned within self. You don't profess it; you learn it." [Cayce (5392-1) underline added]
"For as the heaven is His throne, the earth is His footstool, so may we at His feet learn, know, become aware of, the knowledge of His ways. For He is not past finding out. For is God, the Father, so far away that He answers our pleas, our prayers, as from afar? Rather is His presence felt when we become aware of His force, His power, His love; the knowledge of His presence in our lives, our experiences, our undertakings in His name." [Cayce (262-95)]
"God Is. Man is. Man is an enigma to himself, unless there be an influence from without that may work within. The body of the individual Soul, then is the temple of the living God. God is God of the living, not of the dead." [Cayce (2677-1)]
"For, know all power, all influence that is of a creative nature is of the Father-God a manifestation. Not as an individual, not as a personality, but as good, as love, as law, as longsuffering, as patience, as brotherly love, as kindness, as gentleness; yet in all the beauties of nature - in the blush of the rose, in the baby's smile, in the song of the bird, in the ripple of the brook, in the wind, in the wave, in all of those influences or forces that bring to His creatures a consciousness of Life itself and its awareness and its activity in a material plane." [Cayce (1276-1)]
"Electricity or vibration is that same energy, same power, ye call God. Not that God is an electric light or an electric machine, but vibration that is creative is of the same energy as life itself." [Cayce (2828-4)]
"Life is creative, and is the manifestation of that energy, that oneness, which may never be wholly discerned or discovered in materiality, - and yet is the basis of all motivative forces and influences in the experiences of an individual." [Cayce (2012-1)]
Q: - "Is it correct when praying to think of God as an impersonal force or energy, everywhere present; or as an intelligent listening mind, which is aware of every individual on earth and who intimately knows everyone's needs and how to meet them?" A: - "Both. For HE is also the energies in the finite moving in material manifestation. He is also the Infinite, with the awareness. And thus as ye attune thy own consciousness, thy own awareness, the unfoldment of the presence within beareth witness with the presence without." [Cayce (1158-14)]
"Yet as we look into the infinity of space and time we realize there is then that force, that influence also that is aware of the needs, and there is also that will, that choice given to the souls of men that they may be used, that they may be one, that they may apply same in their own feeble, weak ways perhaps; yet that comes to mean, comes to signify, comes to manifest in the lives of those that have lost their way, that very influence ye seek in the knowledge of God. For until ye become as a savior, as a help to some soul that has lost hope, lost its way, ye do not fully comprehend the God within, the God without." Cayce (1158-14)
"That He gave of old is as new today as it was in the beginning of man's relationship or seeking to know the will of God, if ye will but call on Him within thine inner self! Know that thy body is the temple of the living God. There He has promised to meet thee!" Cayce (281-41)
Now the God I worship has no fellowship with man's opinions. So to cure the disease is to break in pieces the opinions. This places man on his own wisdom independent of man's God or opinion, then he sees the one living and true God who rewards everyone according to his acts, not his belief. To believe in this God is to know ourselves and is the religion of Christ, it is Christ in us, not opinions that we are in. Just as we know this truth, we are of and a part of God, then we become joint heirs of God and will be guided by the wisdom of the father of all truth. This purifies and cleanses our minds from all opinions and leads us into the world of science where opinions never come. Then one man shall not lead us by his opinions, but if one says, here is the truth, let him prove it. This raises man to a higher self-respect, and if man does not respect himself he cannot find fault if others do not respect him. [Phineas Parkhurst Quimby]
"The one most important thing to burn into your consciousness is to realize that wherever motion is it is centered by stillness, and that stillness is its CAUSE. The universe is composed of electric thought-rings of motion. Each thought-ring is centered and controlled by the Creator of that thought-ring. God creates His universe that way. You create your universe that may. It is God who sits there. It is the Magnetic Light of all-knowing, all-powerful Mind which sits there. We call that centering point gravity. The reason why we call it gravity is because there are adjacent thought-rings which have united together so closely that we think of them as mass, instead of rings. Each added ring of the mass has its Mind-center in its own plane. In a mass, therefore, there are seemingly so many Mind-centers of stillness that they constitute a shaft. The word gravity arises from this fact. Gravity is a shaft of Mind-controlling stillness. In that sense, gravity and God are one. Now you have the whole story except for one thought to complete it. Every point of that gravity point is the same point, for God's zero universe is omnipresent." [Atomic Suicide, page 177]

And he must know the mysteries of life, death, and growth, and of the seed into which even the giant oak disappears but still retains its identity. And he must know how man retains his identity when he also disappears." [Atomic Suicide, page 100]
In all this universe of countless many things there is but One Light - which is Mind of God - and the two extended lights of His thinking, which His imagining created to manifest His Being in seeming action. There is naught else in all Nature than God's knowing Mind at rest and the motion of Mind-thinking.
His one idea is His unity in Father-Mother Love. His one desire is to think action, and rest from action, in sequential intervals. His one purpose is to think His knowing of what He IS, and what He KNOWS, into His own image. His one action is to give. His one law is that what He gives must be balanced by equal regiving.
"He, likewise, divides His Omnipresence by centering every particle of creating matter in His whole limitless universe with the still Light of His own PRESENCE. From each center where He thus stands, He reaches out His right arm to one pole, and His left arm to the other one, to form a shaft around which each separate unit of all Creation must move to manifest the cycles of His thinking. In this manner each Mind-centered body in all Creation has at its command, and as its inheritance, all-power and all-knowledge to draw upon in the measure of man's desire, and in the measure of the awareness of God's centering Presence within each unit." [Atomic Suicide, page 107]
""God, the One Father-Mother divides His sexlessness to extend father and mother bodies from His Oneness. The one desire of these separated male and female particles, or masses, is to unite to void their separateness. Upon this formula God's electric universe of motion is founded.
The sexless Father-Mother Creator is One. His extended sex-conditioned, male and female bodies are the completion of His Trinity. God is ONE in all CAUSE - but in all EFFECT He is three." [Atomic Suicide, page 107-109]
"Know thou that God does not extend His Self into his moving universe, for the God-Light is still. Its stillness centers all things - and it, likewise, centers the shafts of all motion which turns around it, shafts which are levers of fulcrums and end at poles which measure extensions.
Naught exists but God. Man exists as ONE with God, but until he is aware of his Oneness he is but a thought-recording image of God's imagining. Some day he will know, however, for that is God's intent in creating Man. Know thou, therefore, that motion merely simulates God's knowing, and God's qualities, and the purposefulness of His divine drama of Creation. Simulations are not reality, however, nor do they exist. Imaginings come and go. They change and have dimension. God's imaginings are not God, however. The play cannot be the Playwright." [Atomic Suicide, page 116]
"We must bear in Mind that the primitive pagan idea was that the earth was all of Creation. Man then thought of heaven as surrounding the earth. Heaven even had a limitation with holes punched in its boundaries for stars. Pagan man had no conception of limitless space and billions of suns and earths. He thought locally. Even his God was for this earth alone, and even for certain races alone. The Greek gods were man-formed and had human emotions and desires. That pagan, man-formed God still persists, a God made in the image of man, a God with arms and legs for which He has no use in a limitless zero expanse, a God who could be angry and wrathful with humans, who could not possibly be omnipresent because of his objective limits. The time must come when man stops praying to a God "up there in heaven" outside of himself, and talk to God within himself. The day of the brotherhood of man, with peace on earth and ecstasy in the heart of man, will never come until man awakens to an awareness of his own divinity, and finds God in the Light of Mind, which he, himself, is. May that day be soon for the many who are ready, and may they hasten the day for the still pagan-minded by awakening the Light within them." [Atomic Suicide, page 235-236]
"The Divine Trinity consists of God, the undivided Father-Mother of Creation, and the two divided father-and-mother pairs which constitute Creation. There is nothing else in the universe for this is the principle of the light-wave which man calls electric current." [Russell, Home Study Course, unit 6, page 391]
"That which man calls God is an ecstatic thinking substance, thinking in continuity, thinking rhythmically, thinking with orderly variation of intensity in measurable impulses throughout endless ages, in endless space." Russell, The Universal One, Chapter III

"God is Light. God is Love. God's creating universe is founded on Love. It is creating with Light. ''The principle of love is desire to give. God gives love by extending His Light. God's love is a mirror of Light which reflects His giving of love by the regiving of love. The law of love is rhythmic balanced interchange between all givings and regivings. The symbol of love is the wave of dual light which gives and regives equally and rhythmically. This is a dual electric wave universe of interchanging light.'' (Fig. 1) God's Love is everywhere; His Light is everywhere. There is naught but good in God's omniscient universe. Evil is a product of man's thinking. God extends His love, His power and His knowing, radially, from zero points of omnipresent stillness to other zero points in the measure of His desire to give form to His imag-
inings. The intensity of desire extended from centering points of rest to extended points of rest determines the dimension of desire. (Fig. 2)" [Russell, The Secret of Light, PART III: Omnipresence The Universe of Being Postulates and Diagrams]
The entire mechanical principal of Nature, by means of which its light illusions of motion are produced, is the consequent effect of such radial extensions. Because of it, the seeming multiplication and division of the universal equilibrium into the opposed electrical pressures of gravitation and radiation, which form the foundation of this universe of change, are made possible. (Fig. 3) God's imaginings extend from rest to rest in His three-dimensional radial universe of length, breadth and thickness - to become the stage of space for His imagined radial universe of matter, time, change and motion. (Fig. 4) Points of rest, further extended to other points of rest, form three reflecting planes of still magnetic Light which are at right angles to each other. (Fig. 4) From the center of these three mirror planes of zero curvature, God's givings are radially projected to six opposed mirror planes for reprojection as regivings, to unfold
and refold the forms of God's imaginings in the curved electric universe of His desiring. (Fig. 5)" [The Secret of Light, PART III: Omnipresence The Universe of Being Postulates and Diagrams, page 219-220]
"Now I understood for the first time that all these problems are caused by a race asleep and thrashing about in its panicked nightmares. There will be wars and holocausts and genocides as long as God is portrayed and thought of as a tight-minded legislator, a feudal lord, an offended King, a hypersensitive Artisan even if church managers condescendingly tack onto that ridiculous list the not-very-convincing footnote that He is also loving. As long as people dream that they are insecure and needy in some sort of eternal jeopardy, there will be atrocities. But as the human race grows up spiritually, and as individuals gain a personal experience of the God they have been worshipping in fear, they will recognize that much of their theology and philosophy is built on nightmares. That will be the day of peace. I suddenly found myself unwilling to sit it out in the mountains of Utah. I wanted to play an active role in the process of the world's awakening." [George Fowler, "Dance of a Fallen Monk" From The Wilderness MILESTONES]
"The Deity is a Person in whose image we are made: no person can be in two places at one time: much more impossible is it for a person to be diffused over space. The Deity - Our Father, being a person, cannot be everywhere, and is not therefore, in the ordinary sense of the word, omnipresent. Yet, by means of this Etheriform element (whose time and space as we understand them are annihilated), He is in constant communication and contact with every thing and being, and, by it, is ever cognizant of everything, and thus is justly said to be virtually everywhere. So, too, in this sense we, unavoidably existing in this element, live and move and have our being in Him. Through this medium He knows all, and by it we ought to know infinitely more than we do." [David Sinclair, A New Creed the book]
"God is not a focus of personality - individual thought processes or a benevolent creator separate from you. God is the combination of the focus of all Its parts coalesced into the composite of all. Each awareness is blocked from being a part of that composite until each realizes that it is a part of this composite. Being told that it is, means nothing at all. It is the realization that one"™s self is a viable part of that composite that encompasses the totality of the being, that is what becoming [or awakening] is all about. One must become that reality and realize it is a viable aspect of the totality of God and that its input to that reality is the truth of who they are. It is not a mental realization, but one that registers total agreement within the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels of the total self. In other words, the spiritual aspect that focuses each into manifested reality finally gets the message through to the rest of its focus that is walking around in the body. The body must register this understanding through the totality of its brain-nervous system resulting in what is called a realization that then registers as a sudden feeling sensation accompanied by an all encompassing understanding. It allows for a total change in perception with regard to the self and how this self fits into the composite picture of experience. This results in a change in the perception of God which suddenly allows for an understanding that God equates to cosmic/galactic citizenship rather than a father/child relationship. It is a shift from "being or experiencing as powerless" to the awesome responsibility of being a contributing portion to the totality of what constitutes God or the creative energy of potentiality being focused into experience in order that it can be defined and understood." Anonymous, Becoming
Dialogue on Awakening
"When I [Jesus] speak of the totality of you, that totality encompasses all that is within the realm of Creation and that is expressed by everything you now determine to be a separate entity; a plant, a tree, another person, a cloud, a planet, a star. It is all you in the greater sense of You, because what is You in the greater sense is God, is Creation, is all that exists, has ever existed and ever will be. This is God. This is the universe, and this is all Love. It is only when you believe that this description that I have presented is not enough, that you begin to perceive that there are other things which you must add to it, and in that attempt, you break down the life force into things that are more easily comprehended by your intellect, more easily comprehended by those things which are preesented to you by your physical senses. It is only when you allow yourself to let go of that need that you will remember the experience of who you are." Dialogue on Awakening, page 216-217
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
'Seek to understand and you will find that little by little, understanding will come to you. 'Knock on the door of the universe giving access to 'God' - the 'Universal Father Consciousness' and eventually, you will find the door swinging open, and you will have entrance to the secrets of the world. 'Only believe and you will receive.' [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 10]
"This is the true ideal, the true aspiration, the highest goal - to understand and experience the Reality behind and within all things giving them their individual being. You may call the Reality - God, Allah, Jehovah, Infinite Intelligence, Divine Mind or Divine Consciousness or the Tao. All these names mean the SOURCE of your BEING - your CREATIVE ORIGINS. YOU CAN HAVE NO HIGHER ASPIRATION THAN THIS - to understand and experience the Reality behind and within all things - giving, maintaining and sustaining all individual being. This was the goal presented to you by every enlightened Teacher who has come to earth." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 9]
"When on earth, to describe the Reality behind and with in existence, I deliberately coined the term the 'Father' when referring to 'God'. This was done for two reasons. Firstly, as I explained in Letter 1, when I received enlightenment in the desert, I was enabled to see that the concepts describing the Creator of the universe as 'revealed' by the Jewish prophets were completely wrong. Secondly, I was given to perceive clearly - and fully understand - the true nature of the Creator and I realised that it was a nature of parenting - of fulfilling the needs of creation in clear-cut, specific ways which were synonymous with those of a father-mother. Indeed, I saw that the parenting impulses present in all living creatures had been drawn directly from the Creator, and that the origin of all love and parenting drives was also the origin of life and existence itself. I also 'saw' that creation was a visible manifestation of the Universal Creative Impulses of Being, and therefore humankind could be termed the offspring of the creator. For this reason, it was quite natural for me to speak of the 'Father' when referring to the Creator, since, to me, this is what the Creator truly is in every way - more especially 'Father-Mother' but having regard to the Jewish insistence on the woman occupying a subordinate position in their daily lives, I referred only to the 'Father' to avoid Jewish resistance and to gain their acceptance of the new terminology. I also coined the term the 'Father' to help the Jews realise that their concept of Jehovah and the rigidity of Jewish laws were totally erroneous. Also by using a new terminology - the 'Father' - to describe the Creator - the Creative Impulse - behind and with in existence, I made it clear I had brought an altogether new teaching in opposition to the accepted belief in a 'God' which rejected certain people and sent disasters upon them as retribution." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 2]
"Science says that life began when in some unexplained way, a correct combination of chemical reactions produced a molecule capable of making copies of itself by triggering further chemical reactions. Such a description of the enormous and teeming complexity and power of the LIFE FORCE as being discernible because it is 'capable of replicating itself', reveals the basic impoverishment of scientific perception and thought which produced such a theory! Furthermore, the suggestion that such a combination of 'inanimate' chemicals could get together in a specific way - accidentally - to produce such an astounding result of 'self-replication' remains unquestioned scientifically. This is because the finite human mind, even though scientific, cannot deal with such a strange eventuality of uninitiated 'self-replication'. It is too suggestive of a magical occurrence - of some intervention from an unimaginable source which scientific men dare not contemplate for fear of ridicule. This sheep-like acquiescence is considered more scientific than producing 'inspired' theories blocked by the materialistic laws science has established for itself. This block to future scientific progress will prevent science properly investigating the realm of mind and spirit until some enlightened scientist defies convention and dares to cross the borderline between the 'seen and the 'unseen'.
Prophets of old, if presented with the theory of molecular self-replication would have no difficulty with such a 'magical occurrence' and would say that 'God' made the chemical combinations and imbued them with life. That would not be the right explanation either. It is this old religious concept of a 'God on High' 'creating from afar' which is blocking the man of science from moving forward to more spiritually aware reflections. Therefore, despite science's seeming emancipation from age-old doctrines, it is still as mentally bound and hindered by fears of ancient shibboleths as in the 19th century. It adopts its ridiculous theories because it has not yet perceived the 'Reality' of Our Source of Being behind and with in the living molecule." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 8-9]
Did you know that when Einstein gave lectures at the numerous US universities he was invited to, the recurring question that students asked him was:
Do you believe in God?
And he always answered:
I believe in the God of Spinoza.
The ones who hadn't read Spinoza didn't understand...
I hope this gem of history, serves you as much as it does me:
Baruch de Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher considered one of the three great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy, along with René Descartes in France, and Gottfried Leibniz in Germany.
Here's some of his wisdom:
God would have said:
Stop praying and punching yourself in the chest!
What I want you to do is go out into the world and enjoy your life. I want you to enjoy, sing, have fun and enjoy everything I've made for you.
Stop going to those dark, cold temples that you built yourself and say they are my house! My house is in the mountains, in the woods, rivers, lakes, beaches. That's where I live and there I express my love for you.
Stop blaming me for your miserable life; I never told you there was anything wrong with you or that you were a sinner, or that your sexuality was a bad thing! Sex is a gift I have given you and with which you can express your love, your ecstasy, your joy. So don't blame me for everything they made you believe.
Stop reading alleged sacred scriptures that have nothing to do with me. If you can't read me in a sunrise, in a landscape, in the look of your friends, in your son's eyes... you will find me in no book! Trust me and stop asking me. Would you tell me how to do my job?
Stop being so scared of me. I do not judge you or criticize you, nor get angry, or seek to punish you. I am pure love.
Stop asking for forgiveness, there's nothing to forgive. If I made you... I filled you with passions, limitations, pleasures, feelings, needs, inconsistencies... free will. How can I blame you if you respond to something I put in you? How can I punish you for being the way you are, if I'm the one who made you? Do you think I could create a place to burn all my children who behave badly for the rest of eternity? What kind of God would do that?
Forget any kind of commandments, any kind of laws; those are wiles to manipulate you, to control you, that only create guilt in you.
Respect your peers and don't do what you don't want for yourself. All I ask is that you pay attention in your life, that your consciousness is your guide.
My beloved, this life is not a test, not a step, not a rehearsal, nor a prelude to paradise. This life is the only thing that exists here and now, and it is all you need.
I have set you absolutely free, no prizes or punishments, no sins or virtues... no one carries a marker, no one keeps a record.
You are absolutely free to create in your life heaven or hell.
I could tell you if there's anything after this life, but I won't... but I can give you a tip. Live as if there is nothing after... as if this is your only chance to enjoy, to love, to exist.
So, if there's nothing, then you will have enjoyed the opportunity I gave you. And if there is, rest assured that I won't ask if you behaved right or wrong, I'll ask. Did you like it? Did you have fun? What did you enjoy the most? What did you learn?...
Stop believing in me; believing is assuming, guessing, imagining. I don't want you to believe in me... I want you to feel me in you when you kiss your beloved, when you tuck in your little girl, when you caress your dog, when you bathe in the sea.
Stop praising me, what kind of egomaniac God do you think I am?
I'm bored being praised, I'm tired of being thanked. Feeling grateful? Prove it by taking care of yourself, your health, your relationships, the world. Express your joy!... that's the way to praise me.
Stop complicating things and repeating as a parakeet what you've been taught about me.
The only thing for sure is that you are here, that you are alive, and that this world is full of wonders.
What do you need more miracles for? Why so many explanations?
Look for me outside... you won't find me. Find me inside... there I am beating within you. [Spinoza]
