Chapter - Author's Note

There is a way whereby we are able to rid ourselves of sin, sickness, poverty, and the 

results of wars and economic changes. This way is the exchanging of our material sense 

of existence for the understanding and consciousness of life as spiritual.

Down the centuries, the sense of man and the universe as being material has resulted in 

the development of fear for the personal self and national existence. This will continue 

and become even more intensified as more destructive material forces are discovered. 

The latest of these forces to be announced is a chemical, one ounce of which, it is 

claimed, would be sufficient to destroy the entire population of the United States and 

Canada, and even this is probably not the ultimate of material force. There is no material 

power to overcome either this or the atomic bomb. There is no hope in matter or material 

sense. The way of security, harmony, and health is through attaining some measure of 

spiritual consciousness.

The great secret is that despite all belief to the contrary real power, either for good or 

evil, does not reside in matter or in the material sense of man and the universe. Those 

who have acquired some degree of spiritual consciousness have proved in that measure 

the reality of Spirit.

The necessity for giving up the material sense of existence for the attainment of the 

spiritual consciousness of life and its activities is the secret of the seers, prophets, and 

saints of all ages. That it is practical is proved today by the healing and regenerating 

works done by many students of modern schools of practical or scientific Christianity. 

When the world learns that whatever success has been gained in improving conditions of 

health, wealth, and security in the lives of these modern followers of ancient teachings 

has been accomplished solely by the surrender of material sense through the attainment 

of spiritual consciousness, it may well look up with hope.

The question is, "How does one set about attaining this spiritual consciousness and 

thereby lose material sense?" The answer is, "Read and study the truths revealed through 

all ages about the universal Consciousness, Soul or Spirit, and about spiritual creation 

and its laws. Imbibe the spiritual sense of these revelations."

In this small volume, I have written the spiritual truth as I have gleaned it through over 

thirty years of study of the major religions and philosophies of all ages, the last fifteen 

years of which have been spent in the practical application of truth to problems of human 

existence -- problems of health, business, family life, and security.

Be assured inner peace will come as one turns to the spiritual consciousness of life, and 

an outer calm will follow in one's human affairs. The outer world will conform to the 

inner awareness of Truth.
