That power is not in heaven, and it is not on earth; it is not to be found in a book, in a building, or in great teachers. True, it is within great teachers, but it is there in exactly the same measure that it is within you and me, and in no greater degree. W e are all equal before God, and the grace of God that has given spirituality to one has given it to all. The one difference is that only a few seem to have gained access to it because only a few have learned that the power of God is made manifest in silence and in stillness.
With each meditation there must be this surrender of ourselves to the Spirit within, together with a realization that God's grace is our sufficiency and that we are in meditation for the express purpose of receiving the comfort of His presence. Nothing greater can come to us than the still small voice of assurance because then we know that all of Infinity is pouring Itself out for us, all of Omnipotence, and in that there can be no power apart from God. Once we know the nature of God, even in a measure, doubt and fear seldom enter our consciousness because to know the nature of God means to realize Omnipresence: God, here where we are now— hereness, nowness.
The same life that flows in one of us is flowing in all of us because there is only one Life-stream, only one Source of life, one creative Force in life. Whether that spiritual life appears as a human being, as animal, vegetable, or mineral form, we aTe now one with it through the act of meditation which has united us with the Stream within us, and we are one with the Stream which was in Christ Jesus. The mind which w;is in Christ Jesus is your mind and my mind, and when we have broken through this human exterior of mind and, through meditation, have contacted the Source, we are then one with the spiritual mind of the universe, which is the mind of the Buddha, of Jesus, of Lao-tse, and the mind of every spiritual saint and seer.
