The Government of Understanding
by Herbert W. Eustace
The conditions appearing in the so-called world are under the government of understanding. “Immortal Mind, governing all, must be acknowledged as supreme in the physical realm, so-called, as well as in the spiritual.” Is not that government your understanding or Mind? Because there is only one Mind and this Mind is your Mind, it is self-evident that you hold the government in your hands. Is not that in accordance with the promise that “the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end”? (S&H)
This “government” is not something apart from you. It is our very Mind, it is that which is your very consciousness of being. It is actually intelligence or consciousness to you. Is not your responsibility then inescapable? The world is your world — not something outside of you. It is right with you every moment and it is absolutely under the government of that which is your Mind, for that Mind embraces within itself all that the world means.
