Practice not being startled, scattered by the daily as-saults, bored into daydreaming by long hours of inde-cision and dullness. Be condent, be radiant, be awarethat you do not walk alone.—oOo—Therefore, teach thyself, be thine own master, be thineown physician, nd thine own Christ!—oOo—Do not be the ones to receive great inspirations and notact upon them. Rededicate your lives and by love, andnot effort, clean your lamps.—oOo—Try to make manifest the living Presence once in thetwelve hours. Resolve every time you are reborn to makeGod a reality at least once. And the way is not by hurlingyourself at the idea from a sense of duty, but by dissolv-ing into the limitless space within you where there areno restrictions, where there is no poverty, no pain, butwhere there is peace, the innite love and salvation . . .a safe return, as that word truly means.—oOo—See your appointed position in the great concept, in thiseternal moment; for you are bigger than the limitlessocean, or the planet, or the planetary system, or thingspast or things to come. Carry in august stillness your soulas you are carried about by your body with all it slyness,weakness and tendencies which lead to oblivion. Awaketo your eternal moment.

Editor’s introduction
The one hundred four letters collected in this book were originally published from the late1930’s through the mid 1940’s in a weekly magazine called the
. The letterswere published as anonymous contributions by various writers from across the country. Itis a mistake to think that all of the letters were written by a single individual. They werenot. Many varous writers contributed over several years. From the content and style of the letters it seems likely that these unknown authors were professional Protestant clergy,or at least deeply immersed in the more spiritual side of the Christian faith.The language of these letters can sometimes seem a bit archaic to the modern ear, butit is also clear that the authors were lovers of language, extremely literate, and sincerespiritual thinkers. A modern reader might notice the unaccustomed emphasis sometimesplaced on racial divisions and identication with one’s “race,but that is simply a sign of those times, and the word was also used to mean the “human race.Some incompleteeffort has been made to clean up the more annoying uses of “thee”, “thine”, and “shalt,” but enough remain so as to leave no doubt that these letters come to us from an earliergeneration. Subsequent revisions to the ebook will reect additional modernization ef-forts by the editor.There letters were originally collected in book form by the editorial efforts of Mary Strong,about whom not much is known. First published in 1948 by Harper & Row, the book wasreprinted in 1991 and it is still currently available for purchase. This present digital editiondraws upon the same source materials as did the printed book, but the letters have beenre-compiled in a different order of my own selection.Coming out of the dark days of the great depression of the 1930’s and the terrifying daysof World War II, this collection appears as a mighty call to take heart in the ever presentsolace of spiritual truth, and to focus on spirit rather than the distressing news of the day.As a source of inspiration and practical spiritual insight in the best Christian tradition,these letters are as valuable today as they were during those turbulent times.Louisville, KentuckyMarch, 2010
