―And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. John 17:19
The ideal we serve and strive to attain could never be evolved from us were it not potentially involved in our nature.
It is now my purpose to retell and to emphasize an experience of mine printed by me two years ago. I believe these quotations from “THE SEARCH” will help us to understand the operation of the law of consciousness, and show us that we have no one to change but self.
―Once in an idle interval at sea I meditated on, ―the perfect state,‖ and wondered what I would be, were I of too pure eyes to behold inequity, if to me all things were pure and were I without condemnation. As I became lost in this fiery brooding, I found myself lifted above the dark environment of the senses. So intense was feeling I felt myself a being of fire dwelling in a body of air. Voices as from a heavenly chorus, with the exaltation of those who had been conquerors in a conflict with death were singing, ―He is risen – He is risen, and intuitively I knew they meant me.
