"Begin now to rise in consciousness by contemplating that you are Christed, Illuminated One, and that you are doing the works of Him that sent you. We must refuse to believe the statements and theories that it takes a hundred or thousands of years to become healed or illumined. There is no time in God. "That which is to be hath already been." In other words, you are all that you will ever be Now.
Yes, this is very instant! Even fifty million years hence will not make any difference to the reality within you. God cannot learn or become wise. He is All-Wise. All growth, learning, expansion and contraction are illusions of growth and expansion. How could God suffer? It must be the illusion of suffering.
Dwell on these wonderful words: "But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die." You're told in these verses that if a man will forsake the ways of the past, and begin to practice right thinking, right feeling and right action, he will transform himself. A new beginning is a new end. Get a new concept of yourself; walk forward in the light.
The Bible tells you, "Behold, now is the accepted time." And another passage: "There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold now is the accepted time. And another passage: "There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift Up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." Jesus said to the people of his day that the truths which he expounded were available now. "This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
Do not postpone your good. Why say, "Next year I will be happier," or "Six months from now, I will be healed." The Healing Presence is available now. The divine answer is awaiting you. God knows only the answer. The fulfillment of your desire is now. "Before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." The inner meaning of this Biblical passage means that before you ask, the answer is already knocking the door of your mind. Infinite Intelligence has no problems; it knows the solution instantaneously. It is timeless and spaceless. No matter what you are seeking exists Now. "Now is the day of salvation." "In thy Presence is fulness of joy."
JOY OF GOD is available now. Do not say, "Some day I will be joyous and free." Enter into God's joy by claiming the joy of God and his Love are flowing through you like a gentle river.
