The only error is the sense of God's absence.

The awareness of God does not dispel error -God Itself is the only harmony. (41)

Seekin the ob!ects of ood" s#ch as pleas#res" thin s" and places" for the !oy of them is a barrier to spirit#al #nfoldment. Seekin only the reali$ation of God" pleas#res" thin s" and places of !oy nat#rally come into o#r e%perience. Then o#r pleas#re is reater in the reali$ation of their So#rce. (4&)

'o one can re(eal God to another" b#t by re(ealin the nat#re of )rayer" we place him in a position to recei(e the God-e%perience. The God-e%perience can come only thro# h the correct #nderstandin of prayer" since prayer is the point of contact with God* prayer is the a(en#e of awareness of God* prayer is the preparation of conscio#sness for the Gode%perience. (4+)

,ords and tho# hts in prayer are helpf#l as lon as they lead #p to the atmosphere of the tr#e comm#nion" which is witho#t words and tho# hts. ,hen words and tho# hts alone constit#te prayer" they become a barrier to the attainment of God-awareness. (4-)

Seekin #idance from God at this sta e of yo#r #nfoldment will set #p a sense of separation from God. It i(es a sense of God and someone needin help" direction" or wisdom. /ct#ally" you need to let God be your life--then It li(es" acts" performs" and IS your very being. (40)

1o not be misled" here is the secret. 2ill yo#r conscio#sness with the word of God* hear It* read It* ponder It* meditate #pon It. This enriches and ripens conscio#sness" and this deeper" p#rer conscio#sness now becomes the ca#se" law s#bstance" and acti(ity of yo#r e%istence. This nobler conscio#sness which has e(ol(ed thro# h st#dy" practice" and meditation attains the conscio#s comm#nion with God" and reaches thro# h to the deep silence of My peace. Then yo# are lifted into a realm of atmosphere transcendin words and tho# hts. (43)

In o#r be innin days of meditation" we pondered or contemplated God" the 4#alities and nat#re of God" as we #nderstood 5im. /s we rose hi her in conscio#sness" we learned that any idea of God that we co#ld entertain was not God 5imself" b#t was only a concept of God. Th#s we entered the stillness of mind leadin to the deep silence of My peace--and experienced God. (44) In o#r st#dent days we so# ht God" or Tr#th" as a means to health" peace" sec#rity" safety" and harmony. 'ow we know that these are not to be fo#nd o#tside of 5im" and that the e%perience of God is o#r only desire. 'ow we ha(e risen abo(e the desire for health or a# ht sa(e 5im alone. /ll m#st rise abo(e the desire for peace" health" !oy" and ab#ndance. 7/nd this is life eternal" that they mi ht know thee the only tr#e God.8 (49)

The mere readin of tr#th is b#t an ac4#isition of knowled e" not a deepenin and enrichin of conscio#sness. It is the deepened and enriched consciousness which is the Christ unto your experience. (46)

,e do not li(e on the mortal plane of conscio#sness where e(il can happen. (9:)
