disease, poverty, the neighbors, the weather, the night air, the dark, burglars, etc., etc.

Eternal strife for wealth, position and power, for material benefits. Benefits, so-called.

All this brings about war—the cell life gorged with blood, calling for the blood of its brothers.

Is not the cause of the war clear?

Do not thoughts pollute the very air? Is it not true that our thoughts affect those around us? What about the cells that we throw off from our bodies every minute -cells that we have built and that are impregnated with our thoughts?

What is the matter with the people in the world? For there is nothing the matter with the world itself.

Each cell, then, that we throw off from our bodies, hour by hour and day by day, bears the stamp of our thoughts upon it. These go to make up the record of our lives, which those whose eyes are opened can read. In occultism this is called the Akashic record.

Then each man is the recording angel.

"Like attracts like." Birds of a feather flock together." These are trite sayings.

We see, then, that the cellular construction and fineness of the tissues of the physical man is determined by the character of the thoughts we store away in them.

The prodigal son wasted his substance in riotous living. His thoughts were turned toward the indulgence of the lower passions, like the rich young man who went away sorrowful because he had many possessions. Therefore the precious substance, the oil or ointment, the elixir of life, was sold for a mess of pottage. The seed, Jesus, or Christ, was not saved. If his thoughts had been pure and clean, the seed would have reached the cerebellum and would have increased in power a thousand fold. They then would have become the anointed of the Lord would have received the oil or oinment. The prodigal would then have become the son "in whom the Father was well pleased."

When the thoughts of the disciple are purified from every undesirable thought—then he becomes the son of the Master for his thought flows like a river through the consciousness of his Lord.

His body has become transfigured, for each seed has become crucified and Christed. Each cell of his body has thrown off all its impurities and has become white in the blood of the lamb, for the blood of the lamb is as a crystal stream.

The process of regeneration causes the white corpuscles of the blood to overcome the preponderance of red, or Mars corpuscles.

Therefore the flesh becomes transparent—and he manifests more and more of the Father—he is no longer man—but has become a God.

Paul says: "Now, then, are we the sons of God." "All things I have done ye can do, and greater."

As we go on living the regenerative life, the time comes when we no longer respond to any law within the physical realm, for all physical matter has been cast off from the body. "It is sown a material and is raised (because the seed has been raised the rate of vibration has been raised) a spiritual body, and the Kingdom of Heaven has been attained.

"HE THAT OVERCOMETH" The above sentence occurs nine times in Revelation.

To overcome a vice or habit means to cease to do it.
In the Scriptures overcome is used to symbol the triumph
of the Ego over sex or animal desire. It means the con-
quering of the carnal mind.
Revelation 2, 7—"He that hath an ear, let him hear

what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,

which is in the midst of the paradise of God." Revelation 2, 11—"He that hath an ear, let him hear

what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that

overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death." Revelation 2, 17—"He that hath an ear, let him hear

what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna,
and I will give him a white stone, and in the stone a
new name written, which no man knoweth saving he

that receiveth it."

REVELATION 2, 26, 27—"And he that overcometh, and

keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations." "And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers; even as I received of my

Father. And I will give him the morning star." Revelation 3, 5—"He that overcometh, the same shall

be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess

his name before my Father, and before his angels. REVELATION 3, 12—"Him that overcometh will I make

a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new

name." Revelation 3, 21—"To him that overcometh will I

grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his

throne." Revelation 21, 7—"He that overcometh shall inherit

all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

EXTRACT FROM "DISCOURSES FROM

THE SPIRIT-WORLD
By Rev. R. P. Wilson; Dictated by Stephen Olin

(Published in 1853)
T IS thought that Stephen Olin was First President of
Wesleyan University.

"The inhabitants of the earth may look forward with joyful assurance that the time is approaching when heaven shall be manifest on earth in the glorious harmonies that will everywhere greet the eye and cheer the heart. As certain as the revolutions of time move forward, SO SURELY WILL THE DIVINE GLORY BE VISIBLY DISPLAYED AND ALL NATIONS SHALL BEHOLD AND ENJOY THE BLESSEDNESS OF CELESTIAL ILLUMINATION. Such being the future and happy result that awaits the earth and its inhabitants, how important, fellow mortal, is your duty to hasten on the grand consummation. Arise from your inactivity and dullness and move forward in obedience to the laws of your being. Let no excuse prevent the utmost development of your whole nature. Exercise all the powers of your mind and body with reference to the harmonial unfolding of yourself. Do what you can to assist others in the great work of spiritual and physical development. Learn from the volume of inspiration in the universe without, and let your spirit look within for still higher manifestations and more refined enjoyments.

CONSUMMATION

1927 HE revolutionary planet Uranus will have com

pleted his seven years' journey through Pisces, and

entered the sign Aries, representing the upper brain, in January, 1927.

The stars in their course
Are nearing the dawn of peace.
The purpling mountain-tops
Of human love appear.
Look! Listen!
Above the battle's din you may hear
The anthem of "Peace on earth."
Good will to men is in the air.
Out from the curling mists of the Pacific Sea
That twist and twine
Like things alive;
From the glory of the upclimbing clouds
Of the morning, that spill their jewels
On the grass and flowers;
In the liquid notes of the shuttle-throated mocking bird
That pours its rippling prayers
Into the ears of Deity;
From the clean-trunked eucalypti,
From orange blossoms and pendant pepper bough;
From the sweet-faced little children;
From the hearts of earnest men;
From the souls of women—mothers;
From the planetary angles
And rising constellations;
From the heavenly hosts that
"Declare the glory of God";
From the inner sanctuary of cosmic law—
We may hear the song of Peace.
Peace comes!
Reach forth thy hands, brothers, sisters,
Welcome thy Savior- Peace.
