"There is no material or mental law in the presence of God, for God alone is law, and the kingdom of God’s law is within."
In this essential chapter of our book of the year, Joel talks about the key preparatory step that must be taken to receive God, to come into the kingdom of God. That is to know God as the only power. He emphasizes that individuals, groups, and even whole nations are in the grip of bondage of false belief. False beliefs about God and about individual being. This vibrant chapter urges those on the spiritual path to go further than mental “knowing the truth.” He says “do not think thoughts of evil or thoughts of good. We receive thoughts from God, and when we hear the 'still small voice,' the earth of error is shattered; it melts.” The name of the chapter says it all: “God is Omnipotent.” This is a study of the utmost importance. “We begin, as did Jesus, with an absolute conviction that God is……then we must stand until we have proved it.”
"Plant the seed of truth in your consciousness and begin daily to nourish it with brief periods of practicing the Presence which means a conscious remembrance of living in God and of life by Grace. Stop fighting life; stop chasing after God; and God will come right up to you."
