greater harmonies in the experiences of those ye meet day by day,

self. For know, the promise is that He shall meet thee

It is not above self, but within. For as ye raise the

3744-1 (Q) What is the significance of the dream, which has come to
this body so often in past years, the dream of climbing a
hill with a lady?
(A) All in this manifestation of forces from the universal
force, only in symbolic forms. The two as shown represent
the whole or entity that must exist for the better forces in
the body, whether for secular or psychic, soul or spiritual
reasons. None enter the presence of the Maker without its
entity, hence the many laws and forces as shown in
manifestated ways in the material world.
The hill or
descending only represents only as the living, way, with
its pointing foliage as toward the heavens, almost up, only
with secular ideas. The down road is followed, though strewn
with the beauties of the universal forces in that covering
the earth. The water or the living way as past with the
beauty of all reacknowledged [?] [word was hand written]

the wavering of all the forces that secular element must
enter in while this plane is being lead for the development
of the soul forces. The mud and way representing that, the
forces may be lead off from the better ways. The wall that
is to be scaled being that which all must overcome, and that
as the ones chosen to assist in mounting to the better ways
do not lend their assistance they must be cut off, for we
find as in this: Always the gold or that of the secular
nature follows the other companion well in the one scaling to

36. (Q) Should the hospital be established in Dayton, Ohio?
(A) Be very good. There are others, as we have given, that
are much better. There are elements and forces and the
influence of those forces that must be considered for the
best development of the work or of that expected and that may
be accomplished through the work or made manifest to others.
The better place would be Virginia or North or South
Carolina. The influence from the forces as just given here,
2938-1 33. First, know self. Continuous study of self is the greater
study of others. Do not become egotistical. Do care for the
health. Do keep in the way that is the greater strength;
administering to groups, teaching those of the own household,
directing and counseling with those many phases of the
activities. These are the outlets greater for the entity.
262-19 understanding must come from the proper concept of the
relationships of conditions in the physical, the mental and
the spiritual phases of an individual's existence.
87-1 We have lost confidence through that of the mental self or to
the supplying forces applying or supplying to those records
to the brain or the mental body, through action of the
spleenic force in the system. We have lost to the physical
self, lack of muscular force through the same condition in
the system, hence we have conditions existing in the body,
which becomes almost of a character, and suggestion to the
man caused the condition he has in his body. We suggest it
to this man that he has a trouble with any organ of the
system, and we will have that condition at times, in the
system. We lose control of self, through the physical force,
or the mentality of the body, or the subconscious self of the
body, keeping the man in the condition he is in or through
suggestive power in the body.
8. (Q) : Is there a message for me regarding virtue and
(A) In making those parallels, or those analyses of what are
the requisites for the closer relationships to faith, to
knowledge, to self, to cooperation, to the knowing of self,
to that of thine ideal, MEASURE these by the spiritual
aspects; NOT as man-made, or man's concept from the material
viewpoint, and there will come the more perfect
understanding. KNOWLEDGE is not ALWAYS understanding; for
these are as knowledge in the daily experiences that are as
miracles, yet they become so often as everyday facts that
there is no understanding in the mercies or the glories that
are showered upon the sons of men from an All-Wise Creator.
294-183 30. For HE hath shown the way; not by some mysterious fluid, not
by some unusual vibration, but by the simple method of LIVING
that which is LIFE itself. THINK no evil; speak no evil;
HEAR no evil. And as the Truth flows as a stream of life
through the Mind in all its phases or aspects, and purifies
same, so will it purify and revivify and rejuvenate the body.
281-13 11. As has been given, there are DEFINITE conditions that arise
from within the inner man when an individual enters into true
or deep meditation. A physical condition happens, a physical
activity takes place! Acting through what? Through that man
has chosen to call the imaginative or the impulsive, and the
sources of impulse are aroused by the shutting out of thought
pertaining to activities or attributes of the carnal forces
of man. That is true whether we are considering it from the
group standpoint or the individual. Then, changes naturally
take place when there is the arousing of that stimuli WITHIN
the individual that has within it the seat of the soul's
dwelling, within the individual body of the entity or man,
and then this partakes of the individuality rather than the
12. If there has been set the mark (mark meaning here the image
that is raised by the individual in its imaginative and
impulse force) such that it takes the form of the ideal the
individual is holding as its standard to be raised to, within
the individual as well as to all forces and powers that are
magnified or to be magnified in the world from without, THEN
the individual (or the image) bears the mark of the Lamb, or
the Christ, or the Holy One, or the Son, or any of the names
we may have given to that which ENABLES the individual to
enter THROUGH IT into the very presence of that which is the
creative force from within itself - see?
13. Some have so overshadowed themselves by abuses of the mental
attributes of the body as to make scars, rather than the
mark, so that only an imperfect image may be raised within
themselves that may rise no higher than the arousing of the
carnal desires within the individual body. We are speaking
individually, of course; we haven't raised it to where it may
be disseminated, for remember it rises from the glands known
in the body as the lyden, or to the lyden [Leydig] and
through the reproductive forces themselves, which are the
very essence of Life itself within an individual - see? for
these functionings never reach that position or place that
they do not continue to secrete that which makes for virility
to an individual physical body. Now we are speaking of
conditions from without and from within!
14. The spirit and the soul is within its encasement, or its
temple within the body of the individual - see? With the
arousing then of this image, it rises along that which is
known as the Appian Way, or the pineal center, to the base of
the BRAIN, that it may be disseminated to those centers that
give activity to the whole of the mental and physical being.
It rises then to the hidden eye in the center of the brain
system, or is felt in the forefront of the head, or in the
place just above the real face - or bridge of nose, see?
15. Do not be confused by the terms that we are necessarily using
to give the exact location of the activities of these
conditions within the individuals, that we may make this
clarified for individuals.
16. When an individual then enters into deep meditation:
17. It has been found throughout the ages (INDIVIDUALS have
found) that self-preparation (to THEM) is necessary. To some
it is necessary that the body be cleansed with pure water,
that certain types of breathing are taken, that there may be
an even balance in the whole of the respiratory system, that
the circulation becomes normal in its flow through the body,
that certain or definite odors produce those conditions (or
are conducive to producing of conditions) that allay or
stimulate the activity of portions of the system, that the
more carnal or more material sources are laid aside, or the
whole of the body is PURIFIED so that the purity of thought
as it rises has less to work against in its dissemination of
that it brings to the whole of the system, in its rising
through the whole of these centers, stations or places along
the body. To be sure, these are conducive; as are also
certain incantations, as a drone of certain sounds, as the
tolling of certain tones, bells, cymbals, drums, or various
kinds of skins. Though we may as higher thought individuals
find some fault with those called savages, they produce or
arouse or bring within themselves - just as we have known, do
know, that there may be raised through the battle-cry, there
may be raised through the using of certain words or things,
the passion or the thirst for destructive forces. Just the
same may there be raised, not sedative to these but a
CLEANSING of the body.
18. "Consecrate yourselves this day that ye may on the morrow
present yourselves before the Lord that He may speak through
YOU!" is not amiss. So, to ALL there may be given:
19. FIND that which is to YOURSELF the more certain way to your
consciousness of PURIFYING body and mind, before ye attempt
to enter into the meditation as to raise the image of that
through which ye are seeking to know the will or the activity
of the Creative Forces; for ye are RAISING in meditation
actual CREATION taking place within the inner self!
20. When one has found that which to self cleanses the body,
whether from the keeping away from certain foods or from
certain associations (either man or woman), or from those
thoughts and activities that would hinder that which is to be
raised from FINDING its full measure of expression in the
INNER man (INNER man, or inner individual, man or woman,
meaning in this sense those radial senses from which, or
centers from which all the physical organs, the mental
organs, receive their stimuli for activity), we readily see
how, then, IN meditation (when one has so purified self) that
HEALING OF EVERY kind and nature may be disseminated on the
wings of thought, that are so much a thing - and so little
considered by the tongue that speaks without taking into
consideration what may be the end thereof!
21. Now, when one has cleansed self, in whatever manner it may
be, there may be no fear that it will become so overpowering
that it will cause any physical or mental disorder. It is
WITHOUT the cleansing that entering any such finds ANY type
or form of disaster, or of pain, or of any dis-ease of any
nature. It is when the thoughts, then, or when the
cleansings of GROUP meditations are conflicting that such
meditations call on the higher forces raised within self for
manifestations and bring those conditions that either draw
one closer to another or make for that which shadows
[shatters?] much in the experiences of others; hence short
group meditations with a CENTRAL thought around some
individual idea, or either in words, incantations, or by
following the speech of one sincere in abilities, efforts or
desires to raise a cooperative activity IN the minds, would
be the better.
22. Then, as one formula - not the only one, to be sure - for an
individual that would enter into meditation for self, for
23. Cleanse the body with pure water. Sit or lie in an easy
position, without binding garments about the body. Breathe
in through the right nostril three times, and exhale through
the mouth. Breathe in three times through the left nostril
and exhale through the right. Then, either with the aid of a
low music, or the incantation of that which carries self
deeper - deeper - to the seeing, feeling, experiencing of
that image in the creative forces of love, enter into the
Holy of Holies. As self feels or experiences the raising of
this, see it disseminated through the INNER eye (not the
carnal eye) to that which will bring the greater
understanding in meeting every condition in the experience of
the body. Then listen to the music that is made as each
center of thine own body responds to that new creative force
that little by little this entering in will enable self to
renew all that is necessary - in Him.
24. First, CLEANSE the room; cleanse the body; cleanse the
surroundings, in thought, in act! Approach not the inner
man, or the inner self, with a grudge or an unkind thought
held against ANY man! or do so to thine own undoing sooner or
