Gestefeld Basic Course: Lesson Ten


Consciousness begins to steal through the subconscious and do its perfect work.

In the light of the pure white ray, the lusts of the flesh drop away into the outer darkness, and prejudice, intolerance, condemnation, narrowness of every name and nature fade into their native nothingness, and the soul illumined and unchained binds itself back to God, and begins to manifest on earth the “beauty of wholeness. It realizes the joy of a soul set free and begins to let its Divinity shine through its humanity that the twain may become one in Christ Jesus.

Unity is the watchword of the Universe. There is no separateness in the naturalness, — in the natural sequence out from God, — only oneness from beginning out to ultimate. Being is the corner stone of the temple we are all building, and Christ is the key-stone of the Arch where the outer and the inner blend as a harmonious whole.

God is Wholeness Itself. We image oneness and must manifest it only in order to wear the seamless robe, and establish in consciousness the unity that was in the beginning, and which alone can fruit in the Health and Happiness which are ours by divine inheritance. Let us use our divine insight and pierce the veil of matter that hides the real, that our Master may ever abide with us in all that we do, that our Easter morn may dawn in all its beauty as we realize that the Christ is risen in our individual consciousness, and that we know that our Redeemer lives.

A true word is twice blessed. It blesses him who gives and who receives and returns to the sender with an added blessing. The tongue is an instrument for either good or evil, according as we use the power of speech.

Jesus said, “I am come that ye might have life, and that ye might have it more abundantly.” Again he said, “I am the Light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” The power and presence of Divine Spirit is the only reality. Our mastery comes through continually abiding in the Light of Truth within our own soul, and making this manifest in thought, word, and deed.

“Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free.”

“Arise, take up thy bed and walk.”
