THERE is no specific cure in the sense that there is one remedy that will cure every type of cancer, because they do not all owe their origin to the same cause. Some are physical, some are mental and some are spiritual in their origin. It is not possible to treat them all alike. You must try to understand the way we work. It is not done by saying “Your world has a problem, here is the answer.” Your world must earn the answer. But if you have wrong living in your world, if you have the needless cruelty to which helpless animals are subjected, if you have not earned the right to be cured, then no one can give you a cure.
What is done is twofold. Where patently sincere and devoted individuals are working along truly spiritual lines, they are helped automatically because they attract wiser beings who were in their field and who desire to help them. The other method is by the outpouring of spirit power in healing which produces results when the sufferer is ready to recieve them. All healing from our world is accomplished through spirit power. It is not a magic wand that can be waved. That power is attracted to the soul of the sufferer. Therefore it cannot induce a response until the soul is touched. There is no magnetic link until the soul is open. If it is closed in, it cannot make contact. It also depends on other factors, too. It depends on what is the cause of the disease. It depends whether a choice has been made beforehand to express itself through a certain type of bodily mechanism. It is not a simple question.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“THE better the life you live, the greater the instrument you become for the Great Spirit, for the higher your life, the more the Great Spirit within you is expressing itself. Your soul as it unfolds through the expression of the life, makes you a greater instrument always.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“TIME is not artificial but it has many dimensions. What is artificial is your measurement of it. Time itself is a reality. It exists. Space exists. But your measurements are not accurate because you view time and space from a limited focus. When you have the knowledge of other factors, then the focus becomes more in line with the truth.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“THE spirit that worked through the Nazarene is still at work, seeking to continue the work that it started two thousand years ago, but that spirit has been crucified a thousand times since, and is being crucified almost every day. But, because that spirit is part of the Great Spirit, it will continue to spread its influence wherever there are instruments who can work for the Great Spirit to bring peace and happiness to your world of matter.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“YOU won’t be a ghost, spectre or phantom. You won’t be headless. You won’t have your head under your arm. You won’t have clanking chains. You will be a real individual with a body, and features which enable you to be recognised by others. You will have all the senses which enable you to recognize others. You will have the entire spiritual apparatus which is necessary for you to function in our world.
You will have form, you will have shape, you will have individuality. What you will not have are any of the physical organs, but you will have correspondingly all the spiritual equipment necessary for you to function in our world.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“THE Great Spirit is not a person. The Great Spirit is not a deified individual. The Great Spirit is beyond personality. The Great Spirit is the epitome of law, love, wisdom, truth. The Great Spirit is the law, the infinite intelligence operating ceaselessly in a mighty universe.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“I DON’T like the use of the word “allowed.” Mankind is given free will, but in a measure that is qualified and restricted. It is not an unfettered free will enabling individuals to do everything they would like to do. The bestowal of free will is part of the divine plan so that people have the opportunity of cooperating, of living in harmony with the natural laws, the infinite processes of creation, and achieving health, understanding, realisation and fulfillment. Killing is wrong, though there are qualifications. Because you have not the power to confer life, then you should not have the power to end it. There are qualifications because there are other considerations to be met. The more you evolve spiritually the more you realise that you must act in accordance with clear principles that are based on a knowledge of spiritual realities.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“IT says in the Bible “add to your faith knowledge.” I say when you have knowledge, add faith to it. You cannot have all knowledge. You are human, restricted in your capacity, for your reception is of necessity limited.
The foundation of knowledge should be your base to enable you to withstand all the storms and tempests of earthly life, to be unshaken no matter what happens. Let your faith help you where your knowledge cannot take you.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“THAT depends on the prayer. The aimless repetition of words merely creates ripples in the atmosphere, but those who pray with their hearts and their souls, seeking in prayer closer unity with the Great Spirit, seeking to make themselves useful instruments for his manifestations, emerge, because of prayer, stronger and more fitted to his servants. The act of prayer, the revealing of oneself, the opening of the heart, binds us all together in unity.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“Q: In view of conditions prevailing today, is it wise to bring fresh children into the world?
WE teach personal responsibility. Though the world is filled with chaos, anxiety and strife; though it is filled with bitterness, antagonism and hatred, a new world is fashioned out of the striving and miseries which are endured. Some there must be who are to become its standard bearers. The race must go on. The spirit must perfect itself through struggle, difficulty and labour. Humanity marches onward, not because it treads an easy path, but because it conquers all difficulty and emerges triumphant. Fear is always the worst enemy, it is born out of man’s ignorance.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“I DO not regard your nuclear power as evil. The use made of it can be evil. On the other hand, the use that can be made of it could be of tremendous benefit to your world. The decision lies with those who are capable of directing or misdirecting this tremendous power.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
“ALAS, because of lack of spiritual development, there are millions of people on earth who do not realise that the spirit which animates them is the same one that animates all creatures who share the planet with them. They do not see them as spirits with earthly bodies, just as they are.
They do not realise that because they believe they are superior to the animals, they have a responsibility towards them, because higher should always help what it believes to be lower.” – The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers
