Excerpts from the Science of MInd
We should interpret the “Will of God” as everything that expresses life without hurt…Anything that will enable us to express greater life, greater happiness, greater power – so long as it does not harm anyone – must be the will of God for us…Every act in the life of an individual is for the purpose that each person may express him or herself.
We must realize, however, that to attempt this self-expression at the expense of society or other individuals is to defeat the very purpose for which freedom exists, for back of all is a Unity.
The criterion is: Does this I wish to do express more life, more happiness, more peace to myself, and at the same time harm no one? If it does, it is not selfish.
