INVOCATION: Thou Infinite, Mighty Presence,
Thou All- Pervading Principle of Life! We give praise
and thanks for Thy Wondrous Activity through all
outer presence. Out of Thy Mighty Essence comes
all that is, and oh! that humanity might under-
stand, Thou art ever and forever Self-sustained. Thou
Mighty, Active Principle of Life, surge forth in the
outer activity of mankind and manifest Thy Supreme
Justice now in all places.

Mighty Presence of Light— God in Action! govern
the minds of mankind, holding them to Truth and
Justice, and see that Thy Messengers are placed
in all official positions. Let naught of the outer
interfere, that none of humanity may accept any
thought of deception.

Mighty Presence of God in Action, surge forth
in the minds of all, expressing Thy Conquering

Life, in all Its Activities everywhere manifest, is
God in Action; and it is only through lack of the
understanding of applied thought and feeling that
mankind is constantly interrupting the pure flow
of that Perfect Essence of Life which would, without
interference, naturally express Its Perfection every-

The natural tendency of Life is Love, Peace,
Beauty, Harmony, and Opulence, for Life cares
not who uses It, but is constantly surging to pour
more of Its Perfection into manifestation, always
with that lifting process which is ever inherent within

“I AM”

“I AM” is the Activity of “That Life.”

How strange it is that students with sincere in-
terest do not seem to get the True Meaning of those
two words.

When you say and feel “I AM,” you release the
spring of Eternal, Everlasting Life to flow on Its
way unmolested. In other words, you open wide
the door to Its natural flow. When you say “I AM
not,” you shut the door in the face of this Mighty

“I AM” is the Full Activity of God.

Having placed before you so often the Truth of
God in Action , I wish you to understand Its first
expression in individualization. The first expression
of every individual, everywhere in the Universe, either
in spoken word, silent thought or feeling, is “I AM,”
recognizing Its Own Conquering Divinity.

The student, endeavoring to understand and apply
these mighty, yet simple Laws, must stand guard
more strictly over his thought and expression— in
word or otherwise; for every time you say “I AM
not,” “I cannot,” “I have not,” you are, whether
knowingly or unknowingly, throttling that “Great
Presence” within you. This is just as tangible as
if you placed your hands about the throat of an
outer form, only with the outer form, your thought
governing the hand, you can release it at any time;
but when you make a declaration using the words
“I AM not,” you set in motion Mighty, Limitless
Energy that continues to act, unless it is recalled
and the imperfection consumed and transmuted.

This shows you the enormous power you have
to qualify this Mighty Energy of God, and I tell
you Beloved Students, dynamite is less dangerous,
for that would but liberate you from the body; while
these thoughts sent forth ignorantly and ungovemed
bind you upon the wheel of re -embodiment
