Day 27 Friday Principle/God as Principle

(Note from Rev. Toni:   Remember that Charles Fillmore was writing this in the early 1900’s;  take a deep breath as you read this entry.  Open up to the metaphysical meaning of these ideas.  Also note that the 2017 edition uses the concept of God as Principle.)

Principle

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read John 5:19-47.  Principle and Truth are one. Divine Principle is Truth in a universal sense, or as it pertains to Elohim God. Satisfaction comes to us as we live according to Principle.  Universal Principle, the oversoul of this planet, was working its way into expression through Jesus. The same work that Jesus accomplished is being accomplished by all men–though perhaps very slowly.  To demonstrate Principle keep establishing yourself in certain statements(affirmations) of the law. The more often you present to your mind a logical and true proposition, the stronger become the inner feeling of realization.  As the principle of music moves through tones, so does the principle of mind move through ideas. Therefore God, as Principle, moves through the expressed thought of Divine Mind.  The mind of each individual may be consciously unified with Divine Mind through the indwelling Christ. By affirming at-one-ment with God-Mind, we eventually realize the perfect mind which was in Christ Jesus.  “Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men.”  I affirm: “Principle is Truth. I know the Truth, and the Truth makes me free.”

God As Principle

By Eileen Carlson

I AM a child of God, and every moment his life, love, wisdom, and power flow into and through me. I AM one with God and governed by his law.

God as principle is the foundation upon which everything rests.  Truth and principle are one. We attain spiritual understanding when Truth is revealed to our consciousness.  In Lessons in Truth, H. Emilie Cady tells us the most fundamental principle we forget is our spiritual origin, our spiritual nature, and spiritual purpose. The relationship between God and humankind can be likened to that of parent and child. We are everything that God is, and as expressions of God, we have access to all the spiritual qualities, attributes, and ideas of God.  We come to know God as principle through prayer, meditation, and our study and practice of Truth principles. We then use affirmations to establish these truths in ourselves.
