Almost every prayer which carries with it a request also carries with it the inference that God is over5ooking something in the manage­ment of his universe and needs a reminder that things are not run­ning smoothly enough to suit the petitioner.  Also, they carry the in­ference that re­quests are asked as personal favors from reverent and devout believers who believe that such favors will be granted if enough devout and reverent people join the weight of their petitions together to be heard by God and His interest in their personal re­quests is sufficiently aroused.  God is not hard of hearing and He is right there within, so what are you actually doing?  Such prayers carry an inference of intercession in someone’s interest—as though intercession is nec­essary with God—or would have any effect what­soever upon Him.  They also carry an infer­ence that God is a per­sonal being, like a king on a throne, to whom petitions are submitted and favors asked upon a personal basis.

To those we say that God does His part always and needs no re­minder.  His part of Cre­ation is Perfect.  His law is per­fect.  HIS LAW ALWAYS WORKS.

You need not ask God to make His law of gravitation work.  Neither will He set it aside if you ask Him to do so.  If you fall off a cliff, the law of gravitation will cause your death whether you are saint or sinner and no prayer will set that aside.  God will tell you not to fall.  He has told you that in y9ur very seed but if you disobey, you will perish just like anyone else.  CAN GOD OVERRIDE THOSE LAWS?  YES.  WOULD HE!  NO, NOT VERY OFTEN—BUT HE MIGHT WELL OVERRIDE SOME OF YOUR ANTICS AND IN THOSE CASES THEY WOULD APPEAR TO BE MIRACLES.

God’s whole universe is in perfect balance.  He keeps it so.  You may depend upon it always.  If you want good crops, God’s law is there to give them to you IF YOU WORK WITH HIS LAW.  But if you ask God to do your part of the work as well as His, you will harvest nothing no mat­ter how great is your faith.

A farmer does not ask God to cure a potato blight.  He searches for the cause of it, which may be his own lack of knowledge of the par­ticular soil.  When, however, a blight strikes men’s own bodies, they vigorously condemn anyone who suggests that they do what the farmer does who works knowingly with God, doing his part of the work together with God’s part of it.

What was the cause of the potato blight?  Was it too much moisture?

What was the cause of the human body blight?  Was it tight lacings generations ago?  Wrong diet?  Unbalanced emotional disturbances?  Frustrations?  Infection from a rusty nail?  Dis­torted seed pattern of ancestors’ unbalanced actions?

No matter what the cause of any disintegrating or depolarizing ef­fect, the remedy for it is to re­store balance.  The restoration of bal­ance in any machine can be accomplished through ac­tion .  It is just as reasonable for one to expect God to repair his typewriter because of his faith and belief as it is to expect Him to repair a human machine which man has damaged.

The restoration of balance through any mental unbalanced condi­tion is purely mental.  A change of thought from nega­tive to posi­tive will cure any mental ailment.  A physically unbal­anced body condition requires a physical action to re­store its balance and this can actually only be truly accom­plished through first balancing the Mind.

Mind-healing has no relation to faith and belief, in actuality.  It is purely CAUSE and EFFECT working in accordance with God’s es­tablished law.  It is desire for a right condition followed by intelli­gent action to restore that condition.  Purely physical abnormalities, whether a broken bone, a cancer, a cut upon the head, a gunshot wound, paralysis from blood clots on the brain, misshapen bodies or other deformities can be “cured” only by physical action.  One might just as well ask God in all faith and belief to mend a broken spoke in an automobile wheel as to ask Him to cure a deformed foot without intelligent action.

Can God do it?  Yes!  However, if it be your foot and it is mal­formed—why would He over­ride your input?  If you wish it healed (if in fact you perceive it in need of “healing”) you will do it yourself through the proper physical attention (although the physical action may very well be to­tally mental in projection).  For instance, if one has indigestion from drinking martinis—would it not be wise to stop the martinis?  If you have so little care as to healing of self then it is assumed that the misery is enjoyed for some unrecognized reason and when the person is ready to release the illness—he will do so.


Creation is a play of CAUSE and EFFECT.  The CAUSE is undi­vided.  CAUSE is always bal­anced.  It is always ONE.

EFFECT is divided.  Instead of one balanced condition, it is a divi­sion into two unbalanced con­ditions.

The play of life is to keep the two unbalanced conditions of EF­FECT in balance with each other.  When CAUSE and EFFECT are in bal­ance with each other, the spiritual and physical mani­festations of ei­ther man or nature manifest harmony, unity, growth and normalcy in all parts.  It is impossible to keep one’s body in perfect balance al­ways.  To say that God made man’s body perfect, as well as man, does not mean that man can keep his body from being dam­aged.  He must go to a dentist when his teeth wear out, or to an oculist when his eyes grow old—or put up with the inconveniences for the avoid­ance.

It is inconsistent for one to believe that God will set a broken bone and, therefore, refuse a sur­geon’s help, but will go to a dentist to have his teeth filled.

God’s law of CAUSE and EFFECT always works.  When any­thing goes wrong with you, or with civilization, it is you who are at fault, not God.  If men steal from each other for ages, they har­vest hate and fear which culminate in wars.  The seeds of fear, hate and greed will not yield har­vests of love, prosper­ity, happiness and peace.

Men pray to ask God to protect them from their enemies, in­stead of praying to ask God to so enlighten them that men can practice the love principle in their human relations and, thereby, not make ene­mies.  As long as man continues to violate God’s law, he will hurt himself.  All the faith and belief in the world will not alter the effect of any cause whatsoever.  Try it.  Try putting your finger on a red hot stove while praying reverently with full faith and belief that God will cancel the law as a favor to you—and see what happens.  Your finger will burn!

Can you override that result?  Yes, but it requires preparation of the body responses in direct ef­fect of orders from the Mind to make those changes—I see almost none who can successfully do this.  To walk across a bed of coals, say, is not proving much of anything but is fooling the people around you as well as your­self.  If mentally prepared properly, the Mind can cause the body to react in directed conditioning—but this takes a lot of at­tention and work.

Therefore, we again say to you that when you ask God for any­thing, never ask Him to fulfill His part, for He has already done that, but ask Him, rather, to show you what you should do to fulfill your portion.  Everything that is wrong with you is of your own making; therefore, ask that you be enlightened.  Per­haps it will be as simple as putting an asbestos finger mitten on before touching the hot stove!  The answer will always be quite simple and always most reasonable.

Let us say, for example, you want a roof for your church or per­haps, as with Little Crow, the gath­ering office needs paint—and your people pray in full faith and belief that God will give it to you and you then rely solely upon your prayer, your church will not get a roof and the walls will not be covered with new paint.  If, however, you ask God to give you knowledge to guide your ac­tions in giving service for regiving of money for the roof and/or the paint and to have someone splash the paint on the walls, your knowledge will find the way to accomplish both.  In Little Crow’s instance, he sim­ply asks his gathering for contributions.  If that does not do it then he will have to decide how badly he needs new paint—and leave it alone or do it him­self—do you get the point?  This is the law and you will as surely have your desire fulfilled as the farmer’s desire is ful­filled when he does his part by tilling the soil and planting seed.

That is what I mean by the prayers of men who tell God what they wish Him to do instead of asking God to tell them what they should do.  How many times do you think of something only to put it aside and later say, “I thought of that but didn’t do it.”  You have to listen when God tells you for it will always be through IDEA.

his is the great misconception of the power of prayer.  The cause of that misconception lies in the fact that people who ask God for fulfillment of their desires forget that requests for mate­rial things are created only through two-way action.  Material things are not cre­ated by rubbing an Aladdin lamp or through wishful thinking.  They are created through balanced action and re­action.

Let us put a hard example on this.  Say now that certain guns and ri­fles need registration and you have one but have not reg­istered it.  It lays atop the gun case.  Now you can pray until you drop dead to have God remove that gun and place it in secu­rity and you are going to be­come arrested at some point for having the gun.  You know what to do with that weapon and if you want something done with it you better get at it.  God will allow you to be incarcer­ated if that is the penalty to allow you to know the difference.  He will warn you in time if you have asked for guidance—but YOU WILL DO IT.  This is a good les­son for today for many of you are going to be caught in this plight as gun controls come down on your nation.  If you are one with one of these banned guns—here is your warning—GET IT TENDED!  GO WITHIN AND ASK FOR GUIDANCE AS TO WHAT TO DO AND LISTEN FOR THE ANSWER—THEN ACT.  IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GET RID OF THE EQUIP­MENT THEN YOU HAD BETTER TEND OF IT SOMEWAY.  SURPRISE SEARCH AND SEIZURES ARE GOING TO BEGIN AT ANY MOMENT!  THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE NAGGED BY MALCON­TENT OVER THE TENDING OF IT—DON’T TEASE AND QUIP ABOUT IT—TEND IT!

When a mechanic fixes your broken car through KNOWLEDGE of its workings, or a surgeon fixes your broken body through KNOWLEDGE of its workings, those operations are as much Mind-healings as the elimination of toxic poisons from your body by thoughts of love is a Mind-healing.





When man fervently asks God to fulfill desires, he forgets that he is asking God to do what he, himself, should do.  God’s part has already ben done.

Man asks God to stop wars, forgetting that wars are man-made, not God-made.  They are a breach of God’s law.  Wars are ef­fects of the disunity, greed and selfishness of man.  Man has free will to mani­fest the spirit in him, or his senses, as he wills.  It is all a part of the Play of Cause and Effect.  The play must go on until man learns by experience that he must some day manifest the love principle upon which the universe is founded.


Sorry about this, but you know that the fulfillment of any desire, whatsoever, comes only through intelligent action.  You guide your car through busy streets by intelligent action, not by faith or belief unsupported by knowledge of the right ac­tions which are nec­essary to take.

Faith and belief are wonderfully consoling for a wishful thinker who is willing to believe in miraculous happenings or who is quite ready to evade effort on his part, but it should be erased from the lexicon of those who desire to achieve or to acquire anything.  This is why those who tout that it is fine to just “BE” are lying to you and to themselves for “just being” entails that someone do for them, that which are considered NEEDS.  If all in the same group are “just be­ing” and sitting on their duffs “wishing”, not a thing will get done except you will get hungry and have to go to the bathroom.

God creates what He KNOWS by thinking it into divided forms.  Man should do likewise, but he must first KNOW that which he de­sires to think into form.

You may have faith, belief and also HOPE in regard to oth­ers but not in God.  You must KNOW that God will give you your desire if you WORK WITH HIM to fulfill it but not other­wise.  Others may have to justify your faith and belief in them but God should NEVER have to prove Himself to you.

If you ask a builder to build a house for you, you KNOW that he can do it and, also, he knows that he can do it—or you will choose an­other builder.  If he answered your inquiry as to whether he could build a house for you by saying, “I sure hope I can” or, “Well, I have faith and belief that I probably can,” your own faith in him would be tinged with deep doubts, for your very belief in him is founded on confidence in his knowl­edge or you wouldn’t have con­tacted him in the first place.

YOU MUST HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF based upon your KNOWLEDGE for knowl­edge is your power; not faith, belief or hope.  Those are but the stepping stones to come into KNOWING THROUGH ACTION.

Therefore, I say to you, whenever you desire to do anything for which you do not feel your­self equipped, do not start doing it with doubt in your Mind or with blindfaith that God WILL DO IT FOR YOU, FOR YOU MUST NOT BEGIN THAT WAY.

Stop, rather, and talk WITH God.  “Seek Him, know Him, be Him,” in deep meditation com­munion.  Seek knowledge through INSPIRATION.  That is the only way to build om­nipotence into your desire.  Never start anything without in­spired knowledge which puts love into your givings—for that which is called WORK should be only joyous giving.

Your weakness lies in asking God to fulfill your desire in­stead of asking Him to give you the knowledge to work WITH Him in the fulfilling of your desire.  You render your­self weak in so asking—and you double your weakness by the very thought of having “faith in God”.  You must have KNOW­ING in God.  Somehow, by just having “faith in God” implies a doubt of the cer­tainty of His promise, and places God on His honor to grant you your request.  He already granted you your request through His grace—all you have to do is accept the gift and regive by achievement.  You must learn to approach any achievement with an attitude of certainty for, when you have in­stilled the certainty of the goal accomplished, the God within will provide the “how” in the form of inspired IDEA—you add the action.

Don’t approach God—or your Self—in an attitude of begging suppli­cation.  You are not asking benevolence—nor is God dealing out pa­tronage.  God is Creator—and you are co-Cre­ator—not a suppli­cant for favors.

You must put aside your idea of separateness and find your uni­versality.  Until you KNOW your attachment with the universe, you are but one part of it.  As long as you feel yourself to be a separate individual person with no attach­ment, you will think of God as totally separate and apart from your Self.  Until you can think of your Self as The Per­son, or the Universal Self, God will be another Being Whom you may revere or wor­ship, or ask fa­vors from, or depend upon, in the measure of your KNOWL­EDGE OF GOD.

To have faith—or belief—in God implies separateness.  It im­plies that God is another of Whom you cannot say, “I and My Father are ONE.”  That is why much deep communion with God is the most important thing in your life, for the more you lose yourself in the Universal Self the more you think of God and your Self as being of ONENESS.

When you plant corn, you do it with KNOWLEDGE born of experi­ence that the corn will grow and fill your granaries.  It does not grow because you have faith and belief that it will grow; it grows because of the perfect workings of God’s Laws.  Likewise, you put the seed in the ground by intelli­gent action—first making sure you begin with corn seeds.  You do not sit in the house and pray to God with faith and belief that He will plant it for you, for you KNOW that He will not.  God will work WITH you but not FOR you, and all of the faith and belief in the world will not give you a crop without your doing your part with God in the fulfillment of your desire.

Let us look at the faith and belief that just believing on “Jesus’” death will save you and that you will be raptured away just for that believing.  NO.  You will not go anywhere unless you take action and do the things instructed for you to do in order to be suitable for the passage—REMEMBER?  IT IS TIME YOU ALL REMEMBER YOUR SUNDAY LESSONS—”EXCEPT THROUGH ME SHALL YE ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF MY FATHER!”  And who was this bold speaker?  He was the “Christed” teacher, which means “the perfection of God” and therefore, HE IS THE WORD, THE LIFE AND THE WAY.  EXCEPT YOU ACT WITHIN THE LAWS OF GOD WHICH HE IS, YE SHALL NOT ENTER IN.  Just remembering the half of the lessons which you enjoy hearing and require nothing of your physical being—you seem to have selective hearing and much more se­lective actions.  You want to practice all the fleshly physical “things” without responsibility and then dump the load on a poor, unsuspecting scape­goat.  It shall not come to be!  “For ex­cept through the actions within the LAW shall ye enter in!”  Moreover, you won’t even get on board a silver craft with that attitude for the Cosmic Brotherhood live within the LAWS and ye who do not and deny them—are not welcome within to foul their order and balance.

Forests rise, corn grows in their majesty, vapors rise and storms rend without faith and belief, or even without knowledge—they fol­low the natural laws of the universe.  God’s Law is being ful­filled in them.  God’s Law is also being fulfilled in you.  You may break your leg and God’s Law will heal it just as God’s Law grows the corn.  But if you ask God to do more for you than fulfill His law—in other words, if you ask Him to do some­thing for you which is YOUR part of it—He will not do it, no matter how much you pray and no matter how much faith and be­lief you put into your prayers.

To exemplify our meaning a bit farther, suppose your broken leg is badly twisted out of line, or the bones pass each other, and you ask God to reset the bones which you, yourself, should do or have done by a surgeon who KNOWS.  You will find that God will do His part by making His universal Law work for you, but your twisted leg will be the evidence of your own ne­glect to do your part of the work that God is doing with you, and you will be a cripple for life, a self-made cripple self-des­tined to suffer from your own disobedience to God’s perfect Law.

And therein lies most of the confusion regarding faith healing.  God’s Laws of growth are abso­lute.  They work automatically and they work whether you pray or do not pray.  Conversely, God’s Laws of decay and disintegration are just as absolute as His Laws of construction, and all the prayers which ask God to set aside His Laws as a special favor to you are more than wasted.

Again, another example.  A destructive fungus develops in a farmer’s corn field.  The farmer does not go to his chamber to pray with full faith and belief that God will cure that blight while he sits by his fireside and does not do his part in working with God to re­verse the de­structive ef­fect.  Nor does he reason with God by mak­ing such useless affirmations as: “God made the corn perfect.  Therefore, there is no imperfection in it be­cause there is no imperfec­tion in God.”

The farmer knows that he must do HIS part in checking the de­structive growth WITH God’s help—which means with the CER­TAIN KNOWLEDGE that God’s unalterable Laws will al­ways work, so he corrects the faulty, damp, under-nourished soil which was the CAUSE of the fungus and God’s constructive Laws restore normalcy.  Moreover, if there was a cure for the corn blight and the farmer refused to utilize it while he kept only praying—you would call him a fool and say that he certainly de­served to lose his crop.

The farmer knows that he must do his part in checking the de­structive growth or he shall sim­ply have no crop.

If you would not expect a farmer to heal his corn disease by faith and belief only in prayer to God, why expect it of humans?  Yet a blight does develop in a human—a blight such as cancer, tumors, wasted lungs, or any of the many things that can happen to any ma­terial growing body which came out of the ground through the con­structive forces of Nature and must return to the ground through the destructive forces which are always waiting to do their part in Na­ture’s work the instant they are called upon to do their part.  Many humans would not ask God to cure a corn blight nor condemn a farmer for curing it himself, but when they find that a blight has struck their own body, they pray that God will set aside His inex­orable Laws because of their great faith in Him instead of doing what the farmer does by working WITH God.

Those who believe this way make certain affirmations upon which they base their beliefs re­garding humans as being quite different from laws governing corn or potatoes.  Those believ­ers say with much reverence: “God made man perfect.  Therefore there can be no imperfec­tion.  If you will but see yourself per­fect, you will then be perfect.”

The great fallacy of such a belief lies in the fact that man’s body is not man.  Man is Mind—an idea of Mind, an idea with a spiri­tual entity.  That is what God made perfect—and it is quite true that there can be no imperfection in the spiri­tual, eternal man.

But it is not the perfect spiritual man that has a cancer or tumor.  It is man’s body WHICH HAS THE CANCER OR TUMOR.  AND IT IS MAN’S BODY WHICH IS FOLLOWING THE IN­EXORABLE LAWS OF CAUSE AND EFFECT WHICH CON­STRUCT AND DESTROY ALL BODIES SEQUEN­TIALLY.  So, the Mind must be allowed in its own KNOWING and BAL­ANCE to create that balance which allows the BODY TO BE HEALED.  It is not “faith” heal­ing—IT IS SELF-KNOWING RE­BALANCING.


God made His Law perfect.  Perfection of God’s Law means perfec­tion of balance between two opposite forces, the force which builds bodies and the force which destroys them.  God made BOTH these forces and they are inexorable and unalter­able in their workings.  God made the divided universe and the laws which govern it are perfect.

But God gave man KNOWLEDGE of how to control those forces by putting his knowl­edge into action.  The forces of Nature and the construction of bodies cannot be con­trolled by wishful think­ing.  Do you think it wise to sit in front of an onrushing train and wish it would stopwhen all you have to do is get up and step out of the way?  The di­vided universe of bodies, which come from the earth and go back into the earth, is one of action—not inaction and wishful thinking.

The next time someone taunts you with, “Why don’t you let God heal that”, if you have cut your finger and ask for antiseptic to cleanse the wound—ask him why he doesn’t let God eat, wash and toilet for him?  Why would you ask your guides, your teachers and/or God to do that which you know full well what to do to tend?

Funny thing—all along the way YOU have helped God to make your body.  God did his part per­fectly for God has all-knowl­edge and works in harmony with His Law, while you do your part im­perfectly because of your perceived limited knowledge of and obedience to the law, such as eat­ing good food and observ­ing the laws of cleanliness and exercise.  If you eat poison food you will poison your body—why blame God?



If you put decaying or poisonous food into your growing body and then ask God in full faith and belief to set His Law aside for you, you are but expressing ignorance of God’s way of working with you instead of knowledge of your co-Creatorship with God.  You do not realize that you are ask­ing God to reverse His Law and make the destructive force which you have put into your body become a constructive force.  What you should do is KNOW that you are in a predicament and you had best ask for inspiration and IDEA as to how to tend the matter and then you will get your guidance to either put the poison out, have an anti­dote, send your body’s own resources or something useful and you re­ally should do it right away.


There is no imperfection.  If something is not to your liking then you are left with but one ac­tion—do something to make it other­wise.  The only thing you can do is work with God intelli­gently through action, just as God works with Nature through intelli­gent action.

The Law is always perfect, however, and imperfect bodies are a breech of Law.

A smallpox or typhoid epidemic cannot be stopped by all the prayers of all the world so long as man continues to build small­pox or typhoid into his own body through ignorance of the Law which he is breaking.  Instead of praying to God to stop the epi­demic, man should pray for KNOWLEDGE of how to work with God in the elimination of it just as he prayed and worked for the elimination of smallpox.  It was not faith and belief which con­quered smallpox—nor will it stop the new strains deliberately de­veloped by other men to reinfect you with more virulent small­pox.


Many who believe in healing by prayer alone without working with God through intelligent ac­tion vehemently condemn calling in a doctor or surgeon in cases where a purely mechanical ac­tion is needed to save a life, for instance, in childbirth where both child and mother die be­cause of lack of a purely mechanical change of position of the borning child which otherwise could not be birthed.

Refusal to make use of the knowledge of one to whom God has given such knowledge is as much a commission of murder by the one who refuses as though he killed the mother and child with a re­volver.

The same with seatbelts which go unworn.  If you do not use the IDEAS God gives for your se­curity—then why blame God if your car crashes and you are maimed?  There are some things which can only come from higher resource but mostly humans simply ignore those things which are made available through their refusal to act WITH God.

If you encounter ones who refuse surgery and transfusions be­cause God will heal or take ac­cording to His choice—I have a question for you to ask.  “Would you recommend that a hun­dred surgeons and doctors be withdrawn from the battle fields and replaced with men of your belief to save the lives of men whose legs have been shot off, skulls crushed and bones ex­posed to view, men who are bleeding to death from terrible wounds or burns where flesh is half gone from the body?  (Preferably ask one who is ON HIS WAY TO THE BATTLE­FIELD!)  Why would you not utilize the wondrous KNOWLEDGE which God has shared with the human to gain skills in medical treatment?  It is much as with Ascension instead of work­ing and acting to change the path of destruction—HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU SEEN ASCEND?????

If you feel everything should be ignored and left to some God somewhere out there—then you know nothing of the very basic principle of Creation and have no idea who and what is God.


THOSE WHO AFFIRM THAT GOD MADE MAN PER­FECT—MEANING THE BODY OF MAN—DO NOT REAL­IZE THAT THE MAKING OF THE BODY OF MAN COV­ERS A PE­RIOD OF MILLIONS OF YEARS.  The man of the jungle, of the Stone Age, the Neanderthal man, or the man of the Carboniferous Age, is as unalike as the forest of today.  At which one of these many stages was man perfect?

If God made man of today perfect, could we not also say that the Neanderthal man was per­fect—or that the cosmic-illumined man of the future is also perfect—when neither one resembles the other ei­ther mentally or physically?

Dharma, the writing has been long this day and we cannot finish this subject without making the chapter too lengthy so allow us to close and I will finish before we change subject material.  I need to con­sider, with you ones, the fact that bodies are chemi­cal machines and I do not wish to rush through the discussion.

Thank you for your attention.  Know that you ones are beloved of us, your brothers, and we are honored to serve.
