T WISH to congratulate you on your beautifully writ-
I ten and most excellent discription of the New

Thought Convention at Nevada. I consider it the very best article published about the convention.

I have established New Thought headquarters here, and if you will kindly send me sample copies of your magazine and list of books published, I will interest my pupils in them.

THE LIFE is a real live magazine and deserves the patronage of all New Thought people.

ELSIE D. DAVIS, Durango, Colo.

To know there is a law of mind that put in motion will straighten crooked paths; that the worst disease advertised in behalf of the doctors in the newspapers, can be sent away by a breath, if behind that breath is the dynamite of Holy Speaking. Disease unreal? Why, that in which it inheres is insubstantial. The fesh cannot carry disease when the thought of disease is refused! How can that which is forever changing carry the same condition unless it be conveyed for it by the unchanging mind? Can the changing cloud in heaven's blue outpicture the same image of shape or form, for weeks and months?

All of those five planted rubber lots we had for sale are sold. And the purchasers certainly got great bargains. We have no more of that class just nowsome may come in later. But we have some ten-acre lots that we can sell you at $150 an acre, payable, $200, cash, and $25 a month without interest. The present owners bind themselves in the contract to clear the land and plant the trees--you paying $5.00 per 1000 for the young trees-and this company works and tends them for four years as a part of the contract. Write me for further information. A. P. BARTON.

Little Lessons

In Elohim.

W E HAVE told you of the Impersonal Powers of

V the universe, called GOD, and also of the HOLY SPIRIT-that fine, etheric Substance that pervades all space and time, (of which electricity is doubtless a symbol) and which is the unifying, upbuilding, perfecting Presence or Breath of Life, pervading everywhere.

There is another member of the great TRINITY, or Unity of Power, of which we have not yet spoken in this series of lessons. It is the CHRIST, called the Son of God.

The CHRIST is the Individual or Spiritual Self; the Faultless EGO, the Real Self in every man, woman and child. It is the Elohim, or the principle of Life, Truth and Love, expressed in self-conscious identity.

Jesus was the one in whom the Real Self seemed expressed in the highest degree! And this is why he was so powerful. Many have exercised the Christ power, but it seems in a lesser degree. The reason why Jesus excelled, was, he gave himself wholly to the work. He took no time off for amusement, and gave all his time and doubtless his thoughts to the great work he came to do.

The reason why people haye not shown forth the Christ power, they were not willing to undergo the sacrifice it required in living the life. Those who do love and exercise the power even in a degree, have become useful teachers and helpers, and have been called—“'Endowed from on high, Inspired of God; Full of the Holy Spirit.

The Real Self, the Christ of you, is ready for expression, whenever you are ready to exercise its power.

The Christ compels no man. It is always, — "Whosoever will' --the soul that is ready for it may express the Christ in it's life. Each man must sometime live the Christ life, because it is the natural life, and intended for every one. Therefore it is well, early to

let the same mind be in you that is in the Christ." Or, let the Christ mind be in you. Paul declared, “We have the mind of Christ." No doubt he knew saying this would help it to become true. It is a good affirmation for any soul. It is this power in the soul which enables one to do the mighty works, done by the Christ power wherever exercised. One cannot affirm he is a “worm" and develop Christ power. It is in the affirmation of TRUTH we rise to our true sphere. We are children of the Most High; let us say it, until light dawns-saving light. No one can truly serve the bad along with the good. Truth and falsehood will not assimilate. Let the Real Self fill all the mind and imagination. Seek the spirit of truth, affirm the spirit of truth, claim the spirit of truth. Deny every appearance of evil. Cleave to that which is good in you and in every one. Deny in the sot his besottedness and affirm his Christ spirit within, and then watch for his transformation. Deny your own "weakness and sin" and affirm your likeness to your Origin, and thus grow into the perfect Likeness. The flowers unfold - not by taking on themselves the nature of the worm, but by looking up into the light of heaven. Thus they grow up and away from the worm, unfolding according to the truth of their real nature.

I now put aside every CONTEMPLATION false notion, every

weight of error; I leave all that is false and contrary to the doctrine of natural perfection. I now recognize the Christ within. I am true to the truth in me. In My Real self I am the
