The Power of Elimination
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
This week we explore Lesson 11 on the Power of Elimination in the series of lessons titled “Releasing the Holy Spirit of God in Man.” The class met on December 22, 1931, and includes some metaphysical interpretation of the story of the birth of Jesus. While Charles Fillmore gets into some pretty edgy material around the earth being a kind of insane asylum, he also gets into some meaty material around the Power of Elimination. One important detail may contradict our current understanding that Fillmore wanted his body to last forever. Fillmore states, “Deny materiality.” Then he states, “WE all have this perfect body, waiting for us to incorporate it; but we must get rid of the old body ideas. Get out of your mind that you have any material body. Say, 'My body is spiritual. God is the Author of this temple. This is God’s temple.’ Does God live in a material temple? No. God is Spirit.” Here is an affirmation from the lesson: “I am willing to give up the old material idea of life that I may have the new spiritual idea of life.”
