Observations of the Wise

by Paula Schneider

In this short talk, Charles starts out with a statement I couldn’t link to the rest of the transcript until I had read the entire manuscript about three times.  “How small things and great things are closely related is illustrated in 10,000 incidents in the lives of the famous characters of history.”  Since you don’t have the original transcript, I will skip ahead and give you the gist of his talk:  We humans often do not fully understand the consequences of our actions.  Sometimes there is a small, seemingly insignificant situation or event that is overlooked at the time, but then at some time in the future, we come to understand—weeks, months or years later–the deep, important meaning of what happened.

I will share one example from the transcript.  “Dr. Morgan, an imminent English divine, gave a lecture in a certain town.  A mangy, unkempt man sat near the door, sour and grouchy.  He had soured on the world.  A few years after this Dr. Morgan visited that town and the same man met him joyously and exclaimed, ‘God bless you.  You saved me from being a runt.’”

Fillmore peppered this talk with a few words of wisdom which I extracted for you, such as:

  • It can be helpful to sometimes allow your inner intuition to guide you to take certain actions.
  • Do all things with focus and mindfulness.
  • Anxiety and worry are not productive activities.
  • As stated above, people don’t fully know the consequences of their actions.

The end of the talk is about the pineal gland.  Fillmore speculates that it could be a “third eye,” as proposed by ancient Hindu writings, Plato, and mystics of the Orient.  I am guessing that Fillmore included information about the pineal gland and the third eye because this brain component is very small and seemingly insignificant. If, however, it is an atrophied eye of the mind, its potential cannot be overstated.  He quotes Jesus as saying, “If, therefore, thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”  Fillmore hints that this eye of the mind has been created or developed by the spiritual soul.

Fillmore’s closing sentence was especially interesting to me.  “Jesus could see the thoughts of those with whom he talked.”  Charles ties this in with the third eye which, in Jesus, would have been fully developed.  In prior transcripts Charles about how our bodies are manifestations of our soul.  I invite you to go back and read my article, “Divine Power,” where this idea is proposed.  The example he used was when the disciples went into a high state of consciousness and experienced a rich awareness of life and love and power—a release of innate power—by consciously raising their vibrational level through prayer and praise.
