The Silence: The Foundation of Our Spiritual Quality
Tuesday, June 5, 2012

This week we explore a talk probably given to employees on November 11, 1924. In this talk, Charles Fillmore explored the Silence as “the very foundation of the spiritual quality that we all are seeking.” Clearly, Fillmore’s definition of the Silence included some present time awareness, whereas today, I like to separate present time spiritual awareness from the actual Silence. Fillmore also shared, “There is a great substantial, eternal life right here present, open to every one of us and the object of our existence is to make contact with that life.” Fillmore touches briefly on communion as well.

During the final segment, we explored from “God as lawgiver” and “God as principle." Once again the challenge of anthropomorphic language shows up in these definitions.
