For a long time, I thought that Three Essential Steps by Marie Watts was the only must-read book. Order it from Mystics Of The World and you will see why. Below are excerpts from this book.
It isn’t enough to say that “God is the Universe,” unless you know the Nature of God, unless you know the Substance that is God, unless you know the Activity that is God–unless you know what God is, as the Substance, Form, and Activity that are all that comprise this Universe. To make these statements without really knowing their spiritual significance, is very much the same as saying, “God is All. God is my Supply, God is my Substance and my Life,” and then, “How am I going to pay the rent next month?” or “Well, I guess I’ll have to take an aspirin for this headache.” It really is pointless to make these statements of Truth, unless we go all the way and perceive the spiritual significance of the Power in the Truth we are stating.
You are the Substance that is the Universe. You are the Mind, the Intelligence, that is intelligently functioning as the Activity of this Universe…You are going to discover that you are more than one with the Universe, the stars, the planets, the galaxies. You really ARE JUST WHAT GOD IS, AND GOD IS THE UNIVERSE.
Indeed, there is Something right here where this matter body appears to be. But this Something is not solid, dense, heavy matter, blocked off in time and space. Right here and now, there is the Body that is entirely comprised of Life, Consciousness, Mind, Intelligence, Principle, Love, Beauty. Yes, the Body is comprised of all that God is and of nothing else.
The Body is alive because It is Life. The Body is conscious because It is Consciousness. The Body is supremely Intelligent because It is Intelligence. The Body is perfect because It is Perfection. The Body is eternally consciously alive because It is eternal conscious Life. The Body is eternally perfect because It is eternal conscious Perfection. The activity (functions) of the Body are eternally consciously perfect because all activity is Intelligence in uninterrupted action.
