"It may not appear to be so, judging by appearances, but always remember what you hear, touch, see, taste and smell, represent the material and limited sense of things."
"When We Judge by Appearances," Chapter Five in The Government of Eden, is a chapter to be studied carefully and, more importantly, put into practice as it takes us into an illuminating exploration of what it means to leave the "world of appearances." It is rich with illustrations of just what it is to live in the limitation of material sense and misperception; and then, with just as vivid examples, points the way to the life of love and release: "I must make myself an instrument through which Love can flow."
"The message of The Infinite Way revealed to me at the beginning that God does not set us free. It is the consciousness of God in us that makes us free. Where the consciousness of the presence of God is not, there is bondage; there is sin, false appetite, disease, lack, limitation, and man’s inhumanity to man. But where the consciousness of God is present—not where God is present—God is omnipresence. Where the consciousness of God is present, there is liberty, freedom, wholeness, completeness."
