P. 13


We teach you these things so that you might have the experience of living in a 

society here on Earth the way that society operates in the heavens... where everyone 
is "joint heirs" and access everything equally.

In our law books it says "Joint heirs shall be deemed tenants in common."

It is said that those who lived "All Things Common" anciently were the happiest 

people on the face of the earth.

"Joint heirs with Christ."-Romans 8:17

"The moment of His death was prefaced by the words, "Father, into Thy hands I 
commend my spirit." His first word and His last begin with the appeal: "Father" - 

for ever we are the children of God, and "If children, then heirs; heirs of God, and 

joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also 
glorified together" (Romans, VIII, 17.); joint heirs of glory, but also joint heirs in 

the suffering which must be ours if the world is to be saved and humanity as a whole 

is to pass into the kingdom. The kingdom is in existence. Through the work of 

Christ and His living Presence in all of us there exists today, subjective as yet, but 
awaiting immediate tangible expression...

"One body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One 
Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and 

through all, and in you all." (Eph., IV, 4, 5, 6.)

Furthermore, in words later used by Christ, the psalmist says, "Into thine hand I 

commit my spirit, for thou hast redeemed me." (Psalm XXXI, 5.) The implication 

here is clear. It is the spirit of life in Christ and in us which makes us sons of God, 

and it is that sonship (with its quality of divinity) which is the guarantee of our final 
accomplishment and entrance into the kingdom of spirit. The sign given is expressed 

in the words: "Behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the 

bottom." (St. Matt., XXVII, 51.) Access to God was established, and the inner 
spiritual forces could pass out without hindrance into manifestation. This was an act 

of God, a stupendous recognition by the Father of what His [225] Son had done. 

Spirit and matter were now one. All separating barriers were abolished, and man 
and God could meet and hold intercourse.

In an ancient scripture of India we read these words, spoken thousands of years ago, 

yet capable of being applied in a most significant manner to this act of Christ, which 
linked Him up not only with ourselves and all past believers prior to His advent, but 

with the Cosmic Christ, so unmistakably speaking here:

"Brahma, the self-effulgent meditated. He considered... Come, let me sacrifice 

myself in living things and all living things in Myself... He thus acquired greatness,
