To repeat: the aim of evolution is to produce a man who, at the objective point of his own self-determination, may completely manifest the inner life of the spirit. Even the spirit does not seek to control us, it lets us alone to discover ourselves. The most precious thing a man possesses is his own individuality; indeed, this is the only thing he really has, or is. For one instant to allow any outside influence to enter or control this individuality is a crime against his real self. In the bible we read: "beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is." Even though this process of evolution is still taking place -has not stopped and perhaps never will stop because we shall forever unfold -even in this state of incompletion, "NOW are we the sons of God." As we more completely evolve, we shall see the Christ appear and "when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is," being transformed from glory to glory, by reason of that divine urge within each of us. Even now the divine reality is accomplished in infinite mind. Within each one of us is an indestructible, an eternal, God-intended man, a perfect being ...our perfect being.
Always the idea of perfected man must have been in the divine mind; involved within the cause is its effect. And in the mind of the eternal, man must be perfect. God is perfect mind and cannot conceive imperfect ideas, hence the idea of man as held in the mind of God, must be a perfect idea. The perfect man is the only man God knows! Man, being an individual, may do as he wills with himself -as Browning said, he may desecrate but he can never lose his life. The spirit ever had a witness within us and the God-intended man already knows that he is one with the whole; that nature is comprised of one ultimate power, using many instruments and having many avenues of expression. The time has come in our evolution when we should awaken to the recognition that behind each one stands the eternal mind -that each has complete access to it; that each may come to it for inspiration and revelation -and that surrounding all is a divine law obeying the dictates of this eternal mind. Evolution is a principle which, through invisible, finds manifestation in every form of life. It is the logical or necessary outcome of universal intelligence of spirit; but evolution is an effect of intelligence and not its cause. Evolution can only follow involution. Involution is idea, while evolution is the unfoldment of the idea. Involution precedes evolution and evolution follows with mechanical precision, propelled by an immutable law ...the law of cause and effect.
God is universal intelligence or spirit. The only way intelligence can move is by an interior movement. God must move within God, if God is all. He moves within and upon himself. It is evident that the movement back of the objective world must be a subjective movement -a movement of consciousness. It is necessary, then, that whatever movement takes place, it must take place within and upon the one; and it follows that whatever is created,is created out of this one. God moves upon God. This is the starting point of creation. Every time one conceives an idea, it is God expressing himself. He is eternally knowing, and eternally known, through everyone. It is God's nature to know, and there is an emotional craving, or desire for expression, inherent in the universe. There is a universal law obeying the will of spirit. This is the law through which that which is involved, evolves. We, as conscious spirit, set a universal law in motion which makes things from ideas. The spirit involves, the law evolves. The law does not know that it is evolving; it is its nature to evolve and this nature is mechanical.
Evolution, then, is not a thing in itself; it is an effect. Behind all objective form, there is a subjective likeness which exactly balances and is the prototype of the form. The thing involved perfectly balances the thing evolving from it. Evolution is the time and the process through which spirit unfolds! In so far as any individual understands this mental law, he is able to use it. We must learn how it works and comply with the way it works. Always, it is an obedient servant. As as man sows, so also shall he reap. Involution and evolution, the thought and the thing, the word and the law, the purpose and the execution ...this is the sequence. While there is liberty in the evolving principle, it is always in accord with certain fundamental laws of necessity. It seems as though behind evolution there is an irresistible pressure, compelling more, better, higher and greater things. For instance, if we study the evolution of locomotion, from the rising of man from the clod, we see him riding upon a horse, in a cart, in a wagon, and so on to the automobile and the airplane.
What is this but the evolution of locomotion, the unfolding through man's mind of the possibility of travel? If we watch the evolution of travel by water, we find the same thing from the raft to modern ships. What is the inevitable end of locomotion? Could it be other than that we shall ultimately do away with every visible means of transportation? When we shall have unified with omnipresence, we shall be omnipresent. When we shall have arrived at a sufficient understanding, our thought will take us where we wish to be. When we know enough, we shall be able to pass on to another plane and come back again, if we wish to do so. When we know enough to multiply the loaves and fishes, we shall do so. When we know enough to walk on the water, we shall be able to do that and it will all be in accordance with natural law in a spiritual world. #trinitytruthbomb #tripletrinity

I am very strong-willed and can become quite forceful when needed. I am very opinionated with strong convictions, I fight for what I believe in. I will argue to the death for what I believe to be true, however, if you can show me FACTS to the contrary, I have little trouble altering my opinion.
I am a far-sighted person with an eye and ear to the new and innovative. I am generally without prejudice and quite tolerant of the point of view of others. I have an interesting side to my nature that allows me to see a valid argument even when I disagree with it. I try to be objective, but, sometimes my emotions get the better of me.
I am a humane, human being. I am known to be frank and outspoken, an "on my mind, out my mouth" type, I make a serious and genial companion.
Quick in mind and quick to respond, I love being active and I am quite reasonable, though sometimes difficult to get close to. I cherish and guard my independence, and I am a strange mixture of caring concern and cool detachment. I will go out of my way to help someone in NEED.
