Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy – by one or more or all of these-and be free.
All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak. Stand up and express the divinity within you.
My ideal indeed can be put into a few words and that is: to preach unto mankind their divinity, and how to manifest in every movement of life.
Teach yourselves, teach everyone his real nature, call upon the sleeping soul and see how it awakes. Power will come, glory will come, goodness will come, purity will come and everything that is excellent will come when this sleeping soul is roused to self-conscious activity.
Infinite power is in the soul of man, whether he knows it or not. Its manifestation is only a question of being conscious of it….With the full consciousness of his infinite power and wisdom, the giant will rise to his feet.
Proclaim to the whole world with trumpet voice, “There is no sin in you, there is no misery in you, you are the reservoir of omnipotent power. Arise, awake, and manifest the Divinity within!”
Men are taught from childhood that they are weak and sinners. Teach them that they are all glorious chidren of immortality, even those who are the weakest in manifestation. Let positive, strong, helpful thought enter into their brains from very childhood.
Hear day and night that you are that Soul. Repeat it to yourselves day and night till it enters into your veins, till it tingles in every drop of blood, till it is in your flesh and bone. Let the whole body be full of that one ideal, “I am the birthless, the deathless, the blissful, the omniscient, the omnipotent, every-glorious Soul ” Think on it day and night; think on it till it becomes part and parcel of your life. Meditate upon it… All your actions will be magnified, transformed, defied, by the very power of the thought. Bring this thought to bear upon your life, fill yourselves with the thought of your almightiness, your majesty and your glory.
What makes you weep, my friend? In you is all power. Summon up your all-powerful nature, O mighty one, and this whole universe will lie at your feet. It is the Self alone that predominates, and not matter.
You are strong, omnipotent, omniscient. No matter that you have not expressed it yet, it is in you. All knowledge is in you, all power, all purity, and all freedom- why cannot express this knowledge? Because, you do not believe in it.
Arise, awake, sleep no more; within each of you there is the power to remove all wants and all miseries. Believe this, and that power will be manifested. Man stands on the glory of his own soul, the infinite, the eternal, the deathless – that soul which no instrument can pierce, which no air can dry, nor fire can burn, no water can melt, the infinite, the birthless, the deathless, without beginning and without end, before whose glory space melts away into nothingness and time vanishes into non-existence. This glorious soul we must believe in. Out of that will come power.
Come up, O Lions! You have infinite strength, infinite energy. Arise! Awake! And stop not till the goal is reached.
