Chapter of the Month
The Government of Eden
Chapter One, "Governed by God or Governed by Man?"
IN THE INTRODUCTION to The Government of Eden is a prophetic statement from Joel. “We cannot adopt new ideas while still clinging to the outworn beliefs of the past: we must be willing to relinquish our old concepts. That is where the courage comes in, and the daring.” As we enter an election season in what has been an unprecedented year of challenges worldwide, our chapter of the month, “Governed by God or Governed by Man?", is a timely and far reaching examination of spiritual freedom. What is it? How can it be realized? And can it/will it be maintained? Joel highlights our responsibility as citizens but more importantly he clarifies our spiritual responsibility as students of a living Truth. “Freedom is not a condition of mind or body. Freedom is a condition of the Soul.” It is that “condition of the Soul” that we take to the polling stations and into the world. This first chapter of our series on The Government of Eden is one we are proud to present as a specific foundation for our Study Series—a journey through which we may experience and then express the ultimate freedom in Spirit.
"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."
