The Science of Being Great
Chapter 9: Indentification

1. HAVING recognized God as the advancing presence in nature, society, and our fellow men, and harmonized the self with all these, and having consecrated the self to that within which impels toward the greatest and the highest, the next step is to become aware of and recognize fully the fact that the Principle of Power within the self is God Himself. "I must consciously identify myself with the Highest." This is not some false or untrue position to be assumed; it is a fact to be recognized. "I am already one with God; I desire to be consciously aware of it. I know there is one substance, the source of all things, and this substance has within itself the power that creates all things; all power is inherent in it. I know this substance is conscious and thinks; it works with perfect understanding and intelligence. I know that this is so, because I know that substance exists and that consciousness exists; and that it must be substance that is conscious. "

2. Humankind is conscious and thinks; a human being is substance, each must be substance, else the human being is nothing, and does not exist at all. If a human being is substance and thinks, and is conscious, then a human being is Conscious Substance. It is not conceivable that there should be more than one Conscious Substance; so human beings are the original substance, the source of all life and power embodied in a physical form. Human Beings cannot be something different from God. Intelligence is one and the same everywhere, and must be everywhere an attribute of the same substance. There cannot be one kind of intelligence in God and another kind of intelligence in Human Beings; intelligence can only be in intelligent substance, and Intelligent Substance is God. Humankind is of one and the same stuff with God, and so all the talents, powers, and possibilities that are in God are in Human Beings, not just in a few exceptional men but in everyone. "All power is given to Human Beings, in heaven and on earth." "Is it not written, ye are gods?" The Principle of Power in Human Beings is Human Self, and Human Self is God. But while Humans is original substance, and has within the self all power and possibilities, Humankind's consciousness is limited. A Human Being does not know all there is to know, and so is liable to error and mistake. To save the self from these a Human Being must unite our mind to that outside the self which does know all; a Human Being must become consciously one with God. There is a Mind surrounding Human Beings on every side, closer than breathing, nearer than hands and feet, and in this mind is the memory of all that has ever happened, from the greatest convulsions of nature in prehistoric days to the fall of a sparrow in this present time; and all that is in existence now as well. Held in this Mind is the great purpose that is behind all nature, and so it knows what is going to be. A Human Being is surrounded by a Mind that knows all there is to know, past, present, and to come. Everything that Human Beings have said or done or written is present there. Human Beings is of the same one identical stuff with this Mind having proceeded from it; and can so identify the self with it so as to know what it knows. "My Father is greater than I," said Jesus,

3. "I come from him." "I and my Father are one. He shows the son all things." "The spirit shall guide you into all truth."

4. Our identification of the Self with the Infinite must be accomplished by conscious recognition on our part. Recognizing it as a fact, that there is only God, and that all intelligence is in the one substance, each must affirm some what after this wise: "There is only one and that one is everywhere. I surrender myself to conscious unity with the highest. Not I, but the Father. I will to be one with the Supreme and to lead the divine life. I am one with infinite consciousness; there is but one mind, and I am that mind. I that speak unto you am he."

5. If I have been thorough in the work as outlined in the preceding chapters; if I have attained to the true viewpoint, and if my consecration is complete, I will find conscious identification easy to attain; and once it is attained, the power I seek is mine, for I have made myself one with all the power there is.
