18th Day   Tuesday

Evolution

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read Romans 8:18-39.

In every man the Christ, or the Word of God, is infolded; it is an idea that contains ideas.  Evolution is the result of the development of ideas in mind. What we are is the result of the evolution of our consciousness, and our consciousness is the result of the seed ideas sown in our mind. Therefore spiritual evolution is the unfolding of the Spirit of God into expression. It is the development achieved by man working under spiritual law. Humanity is the garden of God, of which the soil is the omnipresent thought substance.

The Christ, or Word (Son) of God evolution of man is plainly taught in the New Testament as the supreme attainment of every man. “For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God.”  Without some evidence in us of the Christ man we are little better than animals.  When through faith in the reality of things spiritual we begin soul evolution

there is great rejoicing; “we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Christianity teaches the complete law of evolution. “God said,” and thus God created that which was to appear, God planned man and the universe, and through His word projected them into creation as ideal principles and immanent energies acting behind and within all visibility.  I affirm: “I am one with the ever unfolding, ever increasing Spirit of divine understanding. My whole consciousness is ripening into perfection.”

Spiritual Evolution

By Rev. Paula Mekdeci

I grow into my highest good as I let go and let God.

The Lenten season is a time of growth and learning. It is a time for releasing what no longer serves us and opening to our highest good.  Just as Jesus withstood 40 days of temptation in the wilderness, we face temptations every day, including the temptation to live and think as we always have.  But the energy of life, the flow of life, calls us higher. We are stirred by an innate urge to expand in awareness, grow in wisdom, and love in fullness. Life beckons us to explore, to discover, to be!  Jesus taught and demonstrated spiritual evolution. He grew in spiritual understanding and shared his love and wisdom to help others do the same. Jesus shook up the consciousness of all who encountered him through his teachings and stories; his way of life and his way of death. He proved that what seems like the end is simply an unheralded new beginning.
