Unity With the Father is the Key
stone Upon Which AH
"The shell was not filled with
pearls until it was contented (that is,
ceased from unrest)."
In this old Persian proverb we find
an example of the same truth that
was given by Jesus in his lesson re
garding worldly care, so beautifully
illustrated in tbe story of the "Lilies
of the Field," ending with the in
junction: "But seek ye first the
kingdom of God and his righteous
ness and all these things shall be add
ed unto you."
Not until one ceases from all anx
ious seeking after and. striving for
possessions and settles down into a
state of peace and rest, through ab
solute trust in God for his supply,
can he realize the truth that all
'ttrags whatsoever he desires are in
reality his, that as a child of God
they rightfully belong to him, else
he would not desire them, and that
through conscious recognition of the
fact, he will come into possession of
his own through natural attraction, if
quietly resting and trusting, in con
fident expectation that the supply will
come as needed, in the right time and
In the Knowledge of the Truth.
The conscious knowledge of unity
'With the Father, who is the source of
supply, gives the realization of unity
with the manifestation of supply in
.whatever form or shape needed, thus
ell fear and belief in lack, which is
caused by the ignorant belief in sep
aration from our supply, is eliminated
Irom the consciousness. The feeling of
trust and security which follows en
ables one to maintain an attitude of
equilibrium and poise in all circum
stances and conditions. Nothing can
disturb him who knows the truth,
?or he feels the power which knowl
edge gives and rests serenely in that
consciousness. Re knows that he has
only to make use of this power, in
faith and trust, to bring to him any
thing ho needs when he wants it. He
becomes a law unto himself. He
knows, also, that he is responsible for
the way in which he may use this
power and therefore mu3t use it in
' accordance with the law of right
eousness, else be -will bring direful
consequences upon himself. Knowl
edge and responsibility are insepara
hle, and only through right use of his
power can one produce harmony in
his life and affairs and so be free
from the adverse consequences result
ing from its misuse.
Man'n Divine Gift
Man is given freedom to make his
.world and conditions what he will,
and he learns through the use of his
'power how to use it aright, a state
of heavenly blessedness; a conscious
nes of peace and power within, and
the fulfillment of all his desires. His
hopes and aspirations will all be real
ized and he will find rest in the con
sciousness of being in possession of
the source and cause of all things,
either In the heavens above or the
earth beneath. "I and the Father are
one and all that the Father hath ls
To arrive at this grami consumma
tion one must cease from all unrest
and should cultivate a state of peace,
and trust in the omnipotent goodness
of God, who is the life and substance
of all things and in due time the
realization will follow. The following
exercise in concentration and medita
tion will assist in producing the de
aired state of mind for the above
realization: Concentrate the attention
opon the Supreme Being and meditate
opon his all-abounding and unchange
able love and goodness until you be
come conscious of your unity with it.
Then whenever this consciousness is
lost to you, as it may be through let
ting the cares of the world enter in
and take possession of you, make it
your first duty to re-establish the con
dition, for all your good will come
Misers With Minutes.
A minute is the efficient man's ally
in getting work accomplished. The ?
unused minutes in most lives are suf
ficient for the learning of a foreign
language. A native Chinese Christian
preacher, who* in addition to his
^evangelistic work oversees several
schools and cares for the Y. M. C. A.
work, became proficient in ?he use of
English. One of the American mis
sionaries wrote that he was able to
accomplish this by using the spare
minutes that others spent in idle talk.
Recently a friend, expressed surprise
that ? man who seemed always to be
responsible for work sufficient for sev
eral men nevertheless found time to
read so much. "I put the reading into
niches of time here and there," he
explained. Are there things that you
are longing to do if there were time?
Po not wait for the elusive hours, hut
?natch the ever-at-hand minutes and
begin to do those things.-Sunday
Dwelling In God. .
"Come unto me," says the holy
Jesus, "all ye that labor and are heavy
laden, and I will refresh you." Beg
af him to be the light and life of your
joni; love the sound of his name;
1er Jesus is the love, the sweetness,
the compassionate goodness of the
Peity itself; which became man, so
men might have the power to be
come the sons of God. Love, and
pity, and wish well to every soul in
the world; dwell in love and then you
?well in God.-William Law. , \
To add to the resources of one's life
-think how much that means! To
add to those things that make us
more at home in the world; that help
guard us against ennui and stagna
tion; that invest the country with new
interest and, excitement; that make
every walk in the fields or woods an
excursion into a land of exhausted
treasures; that make the returning
seasons fill us with expectation and
delight; that make every rod of
ground like a page of a book, in which
new and strange things may be read;
in short, those ihings that keep us
fresh, and sane and young and make
us immune to the strife and' fever of
the world."-John Burroughs.
GOOD THINGS FOR DINNER.

one pair of hant?? to prepare all the
