Primacy of Being

"As grand and sublime as nature is, with all her planets and systems of planets, and all things thereon contained, yet she and all her forms are but symbols or spoken words representative of the ideas that are forever resting in that which is symboled - the Speaker. Creation therefore represents the divine ideas which are forever resting in the Creator. If nature, the appearance, be so sublime, how more transcendently so must be the reality or Creator; hence the eternal truth conveyed in the words, “thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever,” so let it be. What is it to find the kingdom of heaven and dwell therein? but to get understanding, and to become fully conscious that we live and move and have our being in God. To thus know that the kingdom of heaven is at hand is to live in the realization of the power and glory of Being. The reason why the wisdom and power of Being is not more fully manifest, is because the attention is occupied with beliefs which are the opposite of Being, and which deny its presence. The ignorance of the world is due to idolatry, and idolatry consists in placing on form the estimate and worth that belongs alone to Being. Awaken, Oh, slumbering humanity, to thine own inheritance, Being, lay hold upon it, it is thine to use and to enjoy. Be passive in thought, and free from anxiety and fear, and look steadfastly into the Unity of Being, and thou wilt see that all that is, is divine, and more than human. “Be still and know that I am God.” - Malinda Cramer

In the silent sacturary of Being lies all the actuality and potentiality of Existence, the cradle of creation. In the interior sea of original Awareness is born all idea and thought of Spirit's imagining, which is according to its own kind, that of divine Perfection, Love and Wisdom. From this 'Beingness' of Omnipresence is Eternal Good, the outpicturing expression of Spirit's own inherent Nature. Brahma (Infinite, Absolute, Immortal Spirit) is the source and substance of the individualized Atman(living soul), so that in the Light of Self-realization, the Soul acknowledges...'I AM That'. All there is, is 'that'.

Love is its own liberty

They who live consciously IN TRUTH and LIFE, know that they are free. They who understandingly live in the ETERNAL, NOW, know that they are free. They who live in this PERFECT IDEA, understand the perfect, and are free. There is no realization but the freedom of UNCHANGING TRUTH.“Know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall make you free.” -Malinda Cramer

Our true life is in Spirit, our divine ground and source. As we abide in Spirit, the Light of God...there in this realm of essential freedom. How does Truth make us free? - it does so by liberating from all falsehood or illusion, and opens us to the already existing eternity of NOW, wherein is Omnipresent Good, light, love, perfection, wholeness. This is the fundamental of where we begin and where we end, for in Omnipresence...there is only God...the eternity of LOVE.

No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. - 1 John 4:12-16
