As the conscious activity is to the unconscious, so is the Conscious Use of the Flame to the recognition of the Light. The natural element of your soul is the “Flame,” accounting for the ancient Fire and Sun worship. When one becomes conscious that he has, is, can use and direct this Consuming Flame, he has entered into Mighty Power.
When one becomes conscious that he has dominion over the four elements, he has but to practice its use to become conscious that he may direct the lightning, master the storm, control the waters, and walk in the midst of the fire unharmed. Will you kindly tell Me how any being can have the use of anything until he acknowledges it—and knows that he has the ability to make it his servant in use?
Then by the practice of its use, he becomes absolutely invincible in its direction. I wish to earnestly to make clear to you that you are being given and taught the exact Laws which I used — and which everyone who has attained the Ascended State must use.
It is all a matter of use, once you know of these Laws, and that the “I AM Presence” which you are has all Intelligence, Power and Authority to consciously direct the energy through the outer activity of your mind. Then do not fear to use It to heal, to prosper, to bless and to enlighten your fellowman.
Erase from your mind forever that there can be any selfishness in your conscious recognition that the “I AM Presence” is direction. It matters not what you require for your attainment, wherein it makes you more able, or of greater ability and power to bless. Then do you not see that there can be no selfishness in the desire for this greater attainment and Perfection? For any individual to feel that he must wait upon the attainment of another is a great mistake. Individuals may attain only through their own conscious effort in this wonderful recognition. No one can grow for another or attain for another, but each may be of immense help to the other by knowing with intensity: ” ‘I AM’ the only Presence and Intelligence acting with that individual” for the one you wish to help. This may be qualified with whatever the person seems to need most.
Every individual’s first duty is Adoration and Love to the “One Mighty I am Presence,” which is everywhere present.
