Series 2 - Lesson 7 - Annotation 11
Why is it unwise to seek light and help from mediums or fortune tellers?
11. God created man and gave him free will. His birthright from Divine Mind is the power and ability to produce the conditions he desires by his thought-word, so it is unwise to seek another person's aid to know what lies in the future. Each person's circumstances and conditions are the result of his own use of the formative power of his thought. Every thought and word of man makes its mark on divine substance and seeks expression and manifestation.
Divine (Creative) Mind is the one source of wisdom, and man's help comes from his own indwelling Lord (law of his being). Man always has access to the Christ Mind. As he trusts completely the wisdom of the Christ Mind, his steps are guided in a plain path. There must be the "waiting" in the silence for the ideas of Absolute Truth. The wise man will have a "single eye" of faith which will be directed toward his Creator, the Father Mind, from which he inherits his ability to produce by thought and word. Anchored there, he abides in God consciousness, which in turn inspires and illumines him.
