Today, many are wondering why they do not accomplish more through their study and prayer. Reader, are you one of these? Do you question, Why does not God, the Truth, heal me entirely? Why am I not quickly brought into prosperity and success? Why must I wait longer?
The reason why one has not known the correct answers to these questions sooner, and so found the true solution to the problems at hand, is because he thinks from the mistaken viewpoint that he is not the One Identity, not the One Life, not the One Being, but another being called man.
So long as you believe yourself to be someone besides the “I,” you can never understand nor experience the Truth of your Being.
Tragically enough, however, if you do not know and identify yourself as the perfect Self, but with an assumed personality or mentality, you live in mystification and ignorance. Assuming another identity, you become weak, sick, poor, and limited in every direction.
Moreover your whole existence now becomes a search to find yourself – to find Truth, to find love, peace and immortality. Your one idea now is to become what you already are – strong, well, wealthy, happy and satisfied.
Never, can you, or anyone, truly realize your hope to be well and happy, prosperous and satisfied so long as you identify your “I” with anyone but God – the One Alone.
Listen! There is but ONE God, ONE Self; ONE I; ONE Life; ONE Being. Therefore, to believe that you are another – such as image, idea, expression, man – is to be self-deceived … and thus at the mercy of your own misconception.
To illustrate. Every time anyone seeks to change or spiritualize his thinking, he is unwittingly identifying himself with a personal mind.
Furthermore, every time one attempts to heal his body of discord or disease through some kind of thought or prayer, he is ignorantly identifying himself with perishable flesh.
Really, you are not separate, apart from Me, nor other than I AM. Aware of the truth of Being, you can say – “I am the Truth now.”
