MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS (John 14:2) (SOM
Father's house are many mansions." This world,
with all its wonders, is not the only one that we shall inhabit.
There are many others and we shall inhabit each in time. If this
life were the only life, Jesus would have told His followers so.
He held out no false promises, never deceived. He spoke only the
to prepare a place for you." What a more beautiful
thought than that those who go before shall be there when we
arrive! There is no doubt, only an expansion of the soul, an
enlargement of the experience. But Thomas, who was a disciple,
said that he did not know where Jesus was going nor did he know the
way. Jesus answered, "I Am the way,
the truth and the life." Again He is referring to
the individual "I" the son of the eternal "I
AM." This son is the way to the Father. We approach
reality through our own natures and through no other source. "No
man/woman cometh unto the Father but by me." God is
within and it is here that we meet Him. The inward gaze alone can
reveal the Father.
WHO SEES THE SON SEES THE FATHER (John 14:9) (SOM
"He that hath
seen me hath see the Father." Many think, from
this statement, that Jesus was claiming to be God, but such was not the
case. God is the invisible Life Essence of all that is, the
Intelligent Energy running through all. This Life we feel but
do not see. We see only what It does, never the Thing Itself.
Life manifests Itself through the
individual. Therefore, when one manifests goodness and purity,
he/she is revealing the Father. This is what Jesus meant when He
said, "He that hath seen me hath seen the
He said that His words were
the words of God. As all forms of energy return again into their
source, so the word of Truth is the word of God, no matter who speaks
it, or when it is spoken. Man/woman reveals, but does not absorb,
the Divine Nature.
that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he/she do also."
It could not be otherwise. The nature of Reality was not exhausted
in the man Jesus, but made manifest through His life and works. We
are to do likewise, and what we ask in the name (which is our own name)
believing in the Father which is God, and in the son (daughter) , which
is ourselves, we shall receive. In this way, the Father is
glorified in the Son (Daughter). - The Science of Mind
Faces of the Fallen are the Faces Of God. It can be no
other way. Infinite Spirit individualized in human form. The
Master Mind Jesus shouted, "Don't ye know
that ye are God's?" We are living spirits
expressing the One Infinite Life which Is God ... our life is not ours,
but God's. We have been told that we are to "love
one another" ... to know that when you "see me you see the
Father" ... together let us love one another ... and let's begin by
praying for the families; the mothers, the fathers, grandparents,
sisters and brothers, wives, husbands, and children ... of those who
have fallen in Iraq ... and let's not just pray for these beautiful men
and women of the United States armed forces ... let us pray for their
souls which have moved over to the Other Side ... graduated into New
Life ... a new adventure ... to another mansion in our Father's House.
So It Is!
