I charge you to be forgiving and patient with all persons whether they be stupid, melancholy or evil and to keep your faces always upward to the highest intent for this above all, releases your life from all violence.

Red + yellow + gold = Fall

…for by calling him to mind you glorify each moment.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 71

You are protected by your own thoughts because your intent is for perfection, you intent is for grace.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 71

Release in your heart all things but joy and gladness, simple beauty and pity and understanding and forgiveness. That is being vitally and spiritually active, that is freedom.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 71

Red + yellow + gold = Fall

You can only reach God in this holy stillness, in calmness
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 72

One touch of faith will thrill you with an ancient courage.

Everyone who comes, whether it be a child or a dog, multitudes or a single unhappy soul, people in darkness and despair, you can help to heal. Such is your task to make the unseen a reality.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 72

You either glorify the invisible world about you, or darken it.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 73

Say to yourself, “I do not understand what I see humanely, but I know my kingdom is within.” And accept gaily. By accepting I mean go into a dull world, into the shallowness of human life, and see immortality and the grandeur of the human heart…. The true revealing piercing spiritual gleam will free you from the bondage of your critical spirit.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 74

Nothing is asked of you but the highest you can reach.

Rest on the idea of victory – Always!

A loving enthusiasm which forgives clumsiness and awkwardness but keeps happily on is what is required.
“In great action is great peace.”
When you find the great stillness you are in the place where you are answered. You go alone with him.

Red leaves

True creative sympathy does not throw one into darkness of another’s life.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 51

This infinite presence of the Spirit is actually present; is the actual stuff of love and peace and power.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 52

Watch each word and mood. Beware of scattering and spilling. Do anything – fall flat on the floor and wait until your valiant soul lifts you to your feet.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 53

Remember your Creator now and so give life to your world.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 53

What you actually think holds your world together.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 53

Your own safety is to be within the center of your kingdom, living from within out, not from without in.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 53

Brave men and women are childlike.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 53

Red leaves 2

Surrender to the holy stillness within.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 56

There is an incorruptible now. Now, you are in truth and not deceived. Now you are in pure joy and not made tragic by your thoughts of comparison. Now you are in peace and not in turmoil.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 56

Keep always invisible in the stillness of his eternal presence. It is a loving awareness. You abide in the beautiful awareness that keeps the instant flaming, alive with joy and peace.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 56

That which had been awakened in you would then bring you again to seek the reassurance and comfort of the spirit which only speaks in the silence of the sovereign shining darkness. Each time you return you are uplifted and through this heavy flesh you feel the freedom.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 60

Come and bring your thoughts where they can be held true, so that you can realize how you are held, supported, sustained, and protected. This is your safety – your thought, and that thought is the realization of the presence of the Creator here and now, within you, in the life you are living.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 60

Stay your mind in the Light; hold, one pointed to the actual idea of God himself, here, now.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 63

But in the true spirit of surrender, the giving up of everything that has become a burden is little effort and the reward is instant; all things in this state work for your good.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> page 66

Red leaves 3

Give freely of your spirit and judge not; be long suffering and patient, for when you are kind with the kindness of the spirit to those who are unregenerate, the act frees your own un-regeneracy as well.
