“ONE LAW AND MANY MANIFESTATIONS”
People often ask if the Law will not bring harm as well as good. This question would never be asked if people understood what Universal Law really means. Of course it will bring us what we think. All law will do the same thing. The law of electricity will either light our house or burn it down. We decide what we are to do with the Law. Law is always impersonal. There is no likelihood of using the Law for harmful purposes if we always use it for the more complete expression of life.
We must not use it for any purpose that we would not like to experience ourselves. This should answer all questions of that nature. Do I really want the thing I ask for? Am I willing to take for myself what I ask for other people?
How can we use the Law for evil if we desire only the good? We cannot and we should not bother about it. We want only the good for ourselves and for the whole world; when we have started causation, at once the Law will set to work carrying out our plans.
Never distrust the Law and become afraid lest you misuse it. That is a great mistake, all Law is impersonal and cares not who uses it. It will bring to all just what is already in their thought. No person can long use it in a destructive way, for it will destroy himself if he persists in doing wrong. We have no responsibility for anyone except ourselves. Get over all idea that you must save the world; we have all tried and have all failed.
We may, by demonstrating in our own lives, prove that the Law really exists as the great power behind all things. This is all that we can do. Everyone must do the same thing for himself. Let the dead bury their dead, and see that you live. In this you are not selfish but are simply proving that law governs your life. All can do the same when they come to believe, and none until they believe.

“The Blessing” ~~~~~~~~~~~
“HOW WE RELATE AND CREATE CHANGES”
We relate consciously is by attracting our beliefs from our subconscious mind. Thought recognitions and reactions come from our choices of beliefs. We can add or subtract our beliefs as we make conscious choices, and take steps into a new direction. We can relate to changes by multiplying what we appreciate. We recognize Goodness through the feelings we already have inside of us. The instant we choose to think differently, we start to feel differently; our behavior and attitudes follow suit. The subjects in our lives change as we objectify them because we have changed, therefore everything is as new as we have become. “If I be lifted up, I shall draw all men unto me,” as Jesus said.
It only takes one change in one person to change every relationship in their own life. Jesus did not think or say, “I can change anyone or anything.” What he did say is this, “Behold, I make all things new.”“What I have done, you can do, and even greater things shall ye do.” He did not make us new; he changed Himself. In so doing, He became new in relationship to all things of His surroundings. When we dismiss certain things in our circles of consciousness, some of those in our circles of acquaintances may drop away from us, and some may even come closer, and even new ones may enter. Be not mistaken, we are who have changed, and all things shall be added or taken away through those activities behest of our exchanges in consciousness.
By His example, if we desire changes, and so it is that we are the ones that need to change within ourselves. When Jesus healed someone, he knew they were already well. He celebrated their health within His Presence. That which is within Him is within all of us.
From The Gospel of St. Thomas; verse 14 – Jesus said unto them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.”
Since we might be working on greater health, we would then require some type of to ailment to oppose us. Opposition is not being related with anything in a healthy way. Opposition is conflict and discord. Harmony and health is included with our inner peace, and it is always in good measure. When we think as a healthy person thinks, act as a health person acts, we display the consciousness of health as our way of being.
We cannot help anyone unless we help ourselves first. The Truth is that we are helping everyone by helping ourselves first. First of all, there is one less person to take care of in the world, because we are taking responsible care of ourselves. “As it is within, so it is without.” Nothing in our life happens without, as our inner agreements are accepted within us. We let things happen through us. Nothing happens to us in Life unless we allow it, or attract it. We are happening to Life as the changes we make in us.
We are released into having our desires as we believe our desires have already been received by us. Our changes are made real from within us as we accept and affirm life. I now affirm: “I am thankfully accepting the Goodness I desire from within me as I now receive these experiences in my new awareness of Life; I embrace these Loving expressions now.”
