Are you feeling my presence in the very cells of your body? God you think, God you are. Dust you think, dust you are. Verily thoughts are things. As you think, so you become. What you sow, so you reap.
Spiritual development does not germinate from the seeds sown in the soil of earthly pleasures. Every action in the form of hatred or evil is so much loss to the mind, and every evil thought or deed of hatred or any thought of reaction, if controlled, will be laid in your favor. It is not that we lose by restraining ourselves, but we are gaining infinitely more than we suspect. Each time we supress hatred or a feeling of anger, it is so much good energy stored up in our favor. That piece of energy is converted into the highest powers.
God is Love.
