‘You see this great big tree. It has grown out of the tiniest seed imaginable. See the vast trunk and branches and foliage. All that enormous growth has come out of a small seed.
‘How did such a thing come about? From when came all the wood in the tree and the foliage which adorns it! Is not this as much a miracle as are the miracles I perform for you, day after day? Is not the growth of this tree as much the work of the ‘Father’ as the healing which takes place in sick people?
‘I ask you – what is a seed? Can you tell me? No – you cannot. But I will tell you.
‘It is a tiny entity of ‘consciousness knowledge’. It is the ‘consciousness knowledge’ of what it will become. It is a fragment of ‘consciousness’ drawn from ‘Divine Creative Consciousness’.
‘It is a fragment of mind power drawn from ‘Father Mind Power’ … which, when planted in the earth and watered by rain, will begin to clothe itself with the visible ‘matter’ of which it possesses knowledge, deep within itself. This knowledge is true, it is firm, it is strong and undeviating. This self-knowledge embodied in the seed, is a conviction in ‘consciousness’.
‘All of life forms arise out of this one-pointed self-knowledge – a ‘conviction in consciousness’. This ‘conviction in consciousness’ is what separates the inanimate soil and rocks from all that lives and grows upon the face of the earth. Where there is no ‘conviction of consciousness’ or ‘knowledge of identity’ there is no growth. The consciousness within soil and rocks remains ‘consciousness’ in a dormant form.
‘Therefore, if you could believe in what you ask for,
as powerfully as does a mustard seed know its own identity,
you would be able to do anything you wanted to do.
‘If you could carry within your mind, a seed – the perfected plan of your most heartfelt goals, and know beyond all doubt, that it can grow and come into perfect fruition, you would see this wonderful seed take on a life of its own which would presently manifest in your life.
‘And you could surely move the mountains in your lives – those mountains which stand across your path and prevent you from achieving all that you would like … mountains which, in times of recklessness and evil thinking have been created by yourselves.
‘If you only understood creation and existence, you would be able to live lives of total freedom, limitless achievement and transcendent joy.
‘Seek to understand and you will find that little by little, understanding will come to you.
‘Knock on the door of the universe giving access to ‘God’ – the ‘Universal Father Consciousness’ and eventually, you will find the door swinging open, and you will have entrance to the secrets of the world.
‘Only believe and you will receive.’
