What his relationship to God and His universe is
With this basic knowledge he will know his purpose on earth And knowingly work with God Who created him, instead of destroying himself by his own hand in working against God, as he is now doing
Ever since man emerged from the jungle of his beginnings he has been trying to discover himself. Ever since that Silent Voice within him began to be faintly heard at the dawn of his Consciousness, He has been forever asking: Who am I? What am I? Why am I here?
Long centuries have passed and man still asks those unanswered questions. Man himself is the greatest mystery of the as yet unknown. He has conquered the seas, the skies, the elements and the very forces which move the universe.
Man, the great discoverer of many things, has not yet discovered himself. He does not yet know MAN. He still despairingly asks: WHO am I? WHAT am I? WHY am I here?
The time has come when man can know if he will but listen with inner ears to the Silent Voice within himself. There have been those in past ages who have made that supreme discovery. These have tried to tell others, but their words had no meaning for primate man.
Then came the supreme One who knew. He tried to tell man of his divine heritage, and of his God of Love, and of his Oneness with Him and with all men, but He died on the Cross. His words had no meaning for primate man of that day. They still continued to worship a God of Fear, a wrathful God whom they sought to appease with blood sacrifice. Even unto this day, mankind has never fully comprehended the teaching of Jesus, the consummate scientist of all time, whose few words contain the greatest knowledge ever given to man. In them is the complete answer to the identity and purpose of man. In them is also all knowledge of Cause, for which world renowned scientist have so hopelessly sought.
These still ask: Who am I? What is gravity and energy and light? What holds the atom together? Jesus plainly answered even these questions for the future ages of man and pointed the way to their understanding, but men looked, and still continue to look, the other way. They do not comprehend.
Even though men crucified Jesus, the divine Messenger of Love, who brought GOOD into the world to supplant evil, there were those who believed on Him. Love survived its crucifixion, even though those few who believed on Him, with great faith, did not comprehend His deeper meanings. There are but few in our world of today who comprehend His deeper meanings.
God, man, woman and Nature are the only elements man has to know and to interrelate, in order to build an enduring civilization
Man’s lack of knowledge of these elements, and how to interrelate them, has caused his hard-built civilizations to fall many times, as it is again about to fall unless man can “be transformed by the renewing of his Mind” In time to save himself from that dread catastrophe.
This new concept is, in reality, a new understanding and a new interpretation of the teaching of Jesus The only fully-illumined Christ Conscious mystic of all time
