Section One: The One Universal Mind, page 160

“In the beginning the Word already existed.” (John 1:1)

“And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3)

We are the creators of our destiny... we choose heaven or hell.

“You are in Me, and I am in you.” (John 14:20)
“Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit.... But if you stay joined to Me and My words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted!” (John 15:5-7)
God is not the same as us, but He is in us. It’s how we are alive.

“Look around you for needs waiting to tbe filled.”
The kingdom of heaven is a heaven of usefulness
“God is the one and only reality.”

page 162

Think in terms of the Spiritual World and God:
God is One, and Creation is an Image of God.
You have been given free will. The word “given” even implies “by a Person.”

Competition is like coveting. It’s assuming that God will not give you exactly what you want, and He WILL to others.
Law of Supply and Demand (or Request)
Don’t look to the world for happiness, look to God.
God works His miracles through people, but the source is God
Flood, Helicopter Story

We are not God, but we are made in His image.
Because we are created in the image of God, we are created in the image of: “Love, Kindness, Mercy, Courage, Compassion, Humor, Patience, Generosity, Acceptance, Confidentiality, Strength, Action, Order, Optimisim, Joy, Faith, Chastity, Humility, Contentment, Forgiveness, Tranquility, Gentleness, Charity, Wisdom, Gratitude, Assurance, Peace, Encouragement, Respect, Praise, Rest, Playfulness, Innocence, Trust, Truthfulness, Honesty, Appreciation, Understanding.” (Rise Above It, page 54)

parable of the talents
God wants us to use the life that He gave us.
