Using our own God-Power
Lord Jesus Christ gave an important benediction to his followers, which was quite misunderstood in those times, because the depth of its import could not be comprehended by the simple folk. He said, "The things that I have done shall ye do also, and even greater things shall ye do."
Those followers who heard these words were at a complete loss over the meaning of these words. To them, Jesus the Christ was a Lord God, and to even think that they could equal any of His great powers was quite beyond what their narrow mindsets could conceive!
In those times, the power and the domination of the clergy was omnipotent. No one dared to even dream that he could be as spiritual, or as close to God as a priest, or a clergyman was. A normal human being was supposed to be really cut off from God, and could only hope to meet Him through the good offices of the middlemen of the Church, the keepers of their souls, the clergy!
Jesus the Christ had learnt through His own spiritual attainment that within each individualization that is within each child of God, there was this "Mighty I Am Presence", which could impel him towards his own Perfection. This spark of God has the power to expand when we consciously focus on it, and demand its expansion into the rest of our bodies.
When we consciously use the words "I AM", we are representing ourselves to be that part of God, which has been individualized in us human beings. This is the Highest Point of Spiritual Consciousness in the human, and when we speak from that point, we actually become the God within us!
Therefore, I ask myself, why would I not use this often enough during the day, to keep bringing back my consciousness to its Highest level?
All miracles of attainment are performed when we are working from the highest level of training that we have received. When we see a great sportsman achieve a miracle record, do we not applaud his uncompromising stand during his training to reach those heights, and break the records that he seeks to break? Does not the sportsman keep his eye, and his attention firmly fixed on the goal that he has set for himself? Likewise, if we focus on the Highest Powers within us, which we activate on using the words "I AM the Presence", would not the result of that action be Perfection, for anything done Divinely has got to be Divinely Perfect?
The constant use of this "I AM" impels us forward to Victory, in spite of any activity of the outer human self. So long as this single idea of ourselves, as God in action, is held firmly within our attention, storms, disturbances, and distress may rage about you, but you will remain in the great calm of the Universal Energy, and stand serenely unmoved by the chaos!
This is the only way by which we can merge with our God Power, and keep it Eternally manifest in our lives, until the day of our Great Reunion in His Realms!
