What is overcoming?

7. Overcoming is a "coming over" into the Christ consciousness or a starting on the return journey to the Father's house: spiritual consciousness. It is in reality the growing consciousness of one's power to master any condition or situation, mentally, morally, physically, or environmentally through one's faculties, supervised by the Christ. To exercise this power in training the lower desires and emotions and in assigning the body to its rightful place in the three-fold being of man is to practice godliness, by which one becomes consciously the likeness of God.
