Men's failure

  1. 1. Man conceives<br />these<br />thought-<br />pulsations of<br />the living<br />thinking God to be<br /> living and dying <br />bodies of people<br />who have identity<br />and reality<br />
  2. 2. In this tragic<br />misconception<br />lies all the ills<br />which man has<br />made for himself<br />All of them <br />without exception<br />
  3. 3. From <br />Business<br />Failures<br />To<br />divorces<br />
  4. 4. From<br />Degenerative<br />Diseases<br />To<br />wars<br />
  5. 5. FROM <br />FRUSTRATIONS<br />TO <br />INSANITY<br />
  6. 6. AND <br />FROM<br />THE <br />PERIODIC<br />RISE<br />AND <br />FALL<br />OF <br />WHOLE<br />CIVILIZATIONS<br />
  7. 7. Oh<br />the pity<br />of it!<br />And<br />WHY?<br />
  8. 8. Simply because<br />men of that day<br />did not <br />comprehend <br />what Jesus<br />meant when He<br />plainly told them<br />that<br />
  9. 9. They could<br />find God<br />within <br />themselves<br />and then <br />all things<br />else would<br />be added <br />unto them.<br />
  10. 10. Instead of<br />comprehending<br />and believing Him<br />the mass-Mind<br />of the world <br />then and now<br />looks outward<br />toward transient<br />pulsing bodies<br />
  11. 11. of<br />living-dying<br />physical<br />matter for<br />their realities<br />
  12. 12. Instead of<br />to their<br />centering<br />spiritual<br />Soul-Mind<br />
  13. 13. MAN <br />DID JUST<br />THE OPPOSITE <br />OF WHAT JESUS<br />TAUGHT AND<br />MADE FOR <br />HIMSELF A WAY <br />OF LIFE WHICH<br />HAS ALWAYS LED<br />TO CATASTROPHE<br />AND OBLIVION <br />
  14. 14. He looked <br />outside of<br />himself for his<br />sense of values<br />and chose transient<br />pulsing<br />living-dying<br />bodies of<br />material things<br />for his choice<br />possessions which<br />he thought would<br />enrich him<br />
  15. 15. He looked away<br />from his spiritual<br />Self to find love<br />and happiness in<br />mere sensation<br />of interchange<br />with physical<br />bodies of pulsing<br />motion which had<br />naught but motion<br />in them to give<br />
  16. 16. He looked away<br />from the One great<br /> reality within <br /> which all power<br />reposed into the<br /> unreality of <br />transient <br />materialism for the<br />power he coveted<br />and took unto <br />himself a mirage<br />which dissolved<br />itself in its own <br />emptiness<br />
  17. 17. Even the<br />greatest of<br />intellectuals <br />looked the other <br />way away from<br />the still fulcrum<br />source of energy<br />to endow pulsing<br />vibrations of <br />motion with <br />energy<br />
  18. 18. Even <br />they <br />looked for <br />CAUSE<br />In the <br />transient<br />EFFECTS<br />of cause<br />
  19. 19. Is it any<br />wonder then<br />that the old<br />way of life<br />which man <br />has chosen<br />has never led<br />him to<br />happiness <br />and<br />Peace?<br />
  20. 20. Has any way of<br />life ever led to<br />happiness <br />peace<br />and prosperity<br />which was based<br />upon greed for<br />material <br />possessions<br />and power?<br />
  21. 21. Not one <br />Thing of man’s<br />Creating has<br />Endured when<br />Man looked<br />Outward<br />And away <br />From the <br />Spirit which<br />Centered<br />him<br />
  22. 22. On the other hand<br />those immortal<br />creations of man<br />which have <br />endured<br />and will endure as<br />long as civilization<br />lasts, are those <br />works of the <br />spiritual geniuses <br />who have been<br /> illumined by the<br />awakening of that<br />divine spark which<br /> centers every man<br />Painting by<br />WALTER RUSSELL<br />(1871 – 1963)<br />
  23. 23. Extracted from <br />the book<br />“God Will Work<br />With<br />You But Not<br /> For You”<br />by<br />LAO RUSSELL<br />(1904 – 1988)<br />
  24. 24. With the exception of <br />WALTER RUSSELL’s painting<br />all the other pictures<br />were extracted from<br />www.tenthousandvisions.com<br />
