you helpful thoughts, you will become a magnet for health, peace and prosperity. Hold fast to that which is uplifting. These higher things are in your soul, and if you are conscious of their presence you will manifest them in your lives. Know not that the spirit of God is within you? Know not that the Kingdom of God is within you, that you are builders and co-workers with God? We must cooperate with God and acknowledge Him in all our ways.
I have been a worker for twenty years, and I have seen thousands of people drawn into a realization of real sonship. God is omnipresent, and is with His children who trust in Him, no matter where they may be, or what may come to them. I have known what persecution is. The physicians said that I practiced medicine without a license. God bless the medicine, for it is the medicine of love.
This medicine healed a withered hand which was as cold as death. The person had been sent to me, and came asking if I could help the hand. I said, " I believe God is all powerful, and God can heal that hand although it is as one dead." The person was a good Methodist, who had prayed and prayed, but the prayers had not been answered. I sat with my fingers on the hand, and soon it began to get warm, and as soon as it was taken out of the cast the fingers could be moved, and you should have heard the praise to God for this healing. The next morning the officers came with a warrant for my arrest, the doctors hearing that I had performed a surgical operation. The case came to trial, the jury sitting till two o'clock in the morning, when they brought in a verdict of "Not guilty." Every time I met the doctor who was instrumental in bringing the suit I would go and shake hands and bless him. He had nothing against me personally, but wanted to see how the case would come out if brought into court. I was asked, “Do you not believe that there is no sickness?” I said, “ Just so long as man does not
know who he is; so long as he abides in the thought that the fleshly is the real man, so long will sickness manifest in the flesh.” Many questions were asked, but in the wisdom of the Spirit I answered them all, and came out of this trial with many new friends. The only thought I had was, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." I loved every one of them, and with love in our hearts we cannot hold resentment against anyone. I had calls from far and near to teach and to heal; people said, “We want you here.” The word went out and good editorials were printed about the case. Every day when I went into the courtroom I blessed all who were trying to stop my work. O how sweet the medicine; little pills of love, how sweet they are.
Do you have wrong thoughts or in harmonious conditions? Then put yourself into the hands and heart of God:
"In the heart of man a cry,
In the heart of God supply."
There you will find a help which is all the medicine you need.
Watch your thinking; be steadfast, and keep thy eye single; do not make negative statements, for your word is a power. Let us awake and stand steadfast with the armor of love, so that fear and pain will leave us. Fear is torment, so be brave and center yourself in the heart of God where your supply lies.

The power of the Spirit is tremendous. Even one moment each day given to prayer, meditation and the silence will bring a great amount of benefit. First of all it will tone down nervous excitement, bring serenity and calmness, and enable us to see things more clearly. The temperament will be better, and the health will be better. Sound health will be one of the first signs, and a sweet, beautiful voice.-The Magazine of Mysteries.
It is found that when many people hold the same thought there is unity, though they may be separated by thousands of miles, and that all who are connected with that unity are in touch with higher spiritual states, even Jesus Christ.
So there has gradually grown up this Society of Silent Unity, in which thousands in all parts of the world join every night at 9:00 o'clock, in thinking for a few moments one thought, which is given each month in the magazine UNITY. This we call the "Class Thought," and every member is expected to hold it at least five minutes at the beginning of the silence, in order to make the unity connectinn; after which, "Ask what ye will in my name, and it shall be done unto you."
Certificates of membership are issued without charge to those who make personal written application for them. To meet expenses, we ask members to send us free-will offerings, as no charge is made for any service we render.
This society has been in existence about fifteen years, and has over 11,000 registered members. Through its ministry thousands have been healed mentally and physically, and its power grows stronger day by day. The silent hour is 9:00 P, M., your local time. Geographical difference in time is not a factor in spiritual unity.
Beginners usually have a great many questions to ask, an they require a course of lessons and reading. To such we recommend the" Lessons in Truth," by H. Emilie Cady; price, $1.25.
UNITY is published monthly, and contains a large amount of instruction. The price of it is $1.00 per year. Where members take UNITY and the “Cady Lessons" together, we make a rate of $2 oo for both.
The simple written request to be enrolled a member of the Silent Unity Society is all that is required to join with us.
Special Notice – If for any reason, members cannot observe the Silence at the regular hour, they should notify us what hour they can observe, and we will arrange it satisfactorily.
Address, SOCIETY OF SILENT UNITY,
1315 McGee Street, Kansas City, Mo.
Class Thought. July 20th to August 20th.
(Held daily at 9:00 P. M.)
“Love is the fulfilling of the Law.”
ITEMS BY THE EDITOR.
Complaints are coming in that Unity is not being issued on time - Sunday Schools do not receive it promptly enough to get the benefit of all the lessons. I am the one responsible for this. The publishing department waits upon my matter, and is delayed when I am not prompt. I have undertaken more writing than I can well accomplish with my other duties. Yet I work twenty-one hours out of twentyfour, and have kept it up at this pace for several years. It is daylight every morning before I catch the few hours sleep that “knit up the raveled sleeve." This three hours' waste will eventually be overcome, and I shall work right through without a wink.
In order that I may catch up with the printers, we shall go to press this month without the customary lesson, and we trust UNITY will reach you on time. Let me say right here that all who subscribe for UNITY expecting to get the twelve lessons in one year's subscription, shall be extended on the books without charge, if you notify us.
I have had some exceedingly “warm " letters, and the business manager says we have lost subscribers, because the Bible Lesson for April 23d, “The Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem” (John 12:12-26), called Jesus a “donkey." I have to admit that this was blunt, and did not really express my meaning, which was that the I Am makes a donkey of itself when it accepts the adulation of those who follow and worship because of the “signs.” Verse 24 explains that the I am in order to be “glorified ” must die to this sort of life. In the hurry of going to press I did not see a proof of this lesson or I should have modified this statement, or explained it to the satisfaction of those who think that Jesus did not typify the weakness of the I Am as well as its strength.
