The Law is a law of liberty, but not a law of license. It is exact and exacting, and unless we are willing to comply with Its nature and work with It, along the lines of Its inherent being, we will receive no great benefit.

SPIRIT AND MENTAL LAW
It is impossible to divorce spiritual understanding from the proper use of mental law. The Spirit within man is God, and
