“New Birth and Being a Temple of God”

  “Now here we may understand what our New-Birth, or Regeneration, is; and how we may become, and continue to be, the temple of God; though in this Life’s Time, according to the outward Humanity, we are sinful mortal men.

“Creation of Light, Creation of Matter and Death”

“Creation of Light, Creation of Matter and Death”

“Spiritual Perception and Man’s Nature”

“Spiritual Perception and Man’s Nature”

“Science and Religion: Together for Peace, Separate for Chaos”

“Spiritual Harmony and Spiritual Synergy to Transform the World”

“Spiritual Harmony and Spiritual Synergy to Transform the World”

    “If they did harmonize—if everybody did—then, by these individual adjustments the complete group-consciousness of humanity would be changed, brought back into conformity with the transcendent; and the spiritual world would be actualized within the temporal order at last. Then that world of false imagination, senseless [...]

“Community of the Children of Light”

    “Our community has existed ever since the first day of creation, when God spoke the word, ‘Let there be light,’ and it will continue to exist until the end of time.

“Gospel of John: The Shepherds and the Light”

“Gospel of John: The Shepherds and the Light”

    “The coming of Christianity represents, in a sense, the central moment, the turning point between involution and evolution.

“Quiet Waters and the Light of the Spiritual Sun”

      “Lo! Quiet waters are before you—holy and tranquil and pleasant—for they are not the waters of contention that cast Joseph into the dungeon. … Nor are they waters of strife. … There are waters whereby there is reconciliation made with Heaven. … In it are baptized the sons of Hagar, and are become gentle [...]
