"With even this progress the words: "Seek ye the kingdom of heaven within you," have no dynamic meaning." [Atomic Suicide, page 188]
"That zero point is you. In it is all-knowledge and all-power to extend to as you desire it, and are aware of it within that "kingdom of heaven" within you." [Atomic Suicide, page 255]
""Clayed images of My imagining who know not Me in them are but dwellers of earth's dark. To sensed man the doors of My Kingdom are self-barred by darkness until the Light of Me in him is known by him as Me." [Russell, Atomic Suicide, page 239]
Manly Palmer Hall
"Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and its righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you." The alchemist, therefore is assured that if he achieved the inner mystery, the fulfillment of the outer part will be inevitable. But practically every charlatan in alchemy has determined primarily to achieve the physical purpose first. His primary interest has been to make gold, or perhaps one of the other aspects of it, such as a medicine against illness. He has wanted the physical effect first but because the physical effect was not intended to be first, when he starts to study and explore the various texts, he comes upon a dilemma, HIS OWN INTERNAL RESOURCES CANNOT DISCOVER THE CORRECT INSTRUCTIONS. The words may be there but the meaning eludes him because the meaning is not part of his own present spiritual integrity." [Manly Palmer Hall]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"I would walk through all the cities, towns, villages and tell everyone I met - the GOOD NEWS! 'The Kingdom of Heaven', that place where all sickness disappeared and every need was supplied was within them! Because I knew that the 'Father' and I were 'one', now that my mind had been cleansed of the old thoughts and ideas, I would direct healing at their illness and disease. I would teach them how to relieve their poverty." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 19]
"In the gospels are frequent references to my parables describing the reality of the Kingdom of Heaven or Kingdom of God, whichever term the gospellers used but nowhere has any attempt been made to reach into the words themselves, explore the figures of speech, or lift out the spiritual meaning of the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 2, page 1]
'There is no 'sin' as we understand it. We are born to behave as we do. We have to find a way to overcome our human thoughts and feelings for they separate us from the protection of the 'Father' and bring us our sickness and misery. When we have learnt how to overcome the 'self' we will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.' [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 2, page 6]
"None of you may break the LAWS of EXISTENCE and hope that you may enter into the kingdom of heaven or paradise. Your behaviour has no place beyond the mayhem you are presently bringing on yourselves." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 4, page 22]
"To fully understand the nature of creation: the reasons why the ego functions as it does, why created entities feel the urges they feel, it must be understood that the NATURE and QUALITY of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS is RADIANT JOY - FULFILLMENT - HAPPINESS.
THIS IS WHAT I TERMED THE 'KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WITHIN YOU' - WITHIN YOUR SOUL - WITHIN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF YOUR PSYCHE, which is the intermediary between the radiance of your soul and the shadow self of ego.
To return to this transcendent state of glorious, beautiful, happy, harmonious being is your soul's deepest longing!
It is this enduring longing, this inborn unconscious recollection of equilibrium and peace, joy and harmony, which, through the psyche, prompts the EGO to manipulate the environment on your behalf. Its consistent purpose is to bring you back to your primal original state of glorious ecstasy out of which you drew your soul, being and form. But the ego can bring about your desired joy and pleasure, only by means of the two magnetic/emotional 'Bonding-Rejection' impulses - which are only materialised impulses to give you your individuality." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 6, page 9]
"This is why I have said to you: I have not come to teach you positive thinking to draw into your orbit the things you want and need. I have come to you expressly to lead you back into the Kingdom of Heaven." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 6, page 10]
