The Child Within Us Lives!, A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics
William Samuel
This book explains the transcendence of divisions into the discovery of our original nature, the Child within.

1 "The awareness that reads these words and seems to write them is God's knowing happening – and that 'happening' is confirmation of the One."

2 "In the perfection of All, there isn't a single real evil. God is all and only."

3 "Does the Eye at the top quarrel with the opposing views at the bottom? No. It understands the basis for the differences of opinion – and understands the holistic reasons for mankind's behavior."

4 "Religious ideas generally refer to the Same One, but have their own sets of proofs for validity."

5 "The intuitive knowledge of a primal Simplicity behind everything sparks the scientists's search as surely as the metaphysician's."

6 "There is only one Heart, one Child, One God. It is the same for all of us."

7 "You were meant to understand the Truth from the beginning of time, whether you consider yourself religious or not, intelligent or not. Does a flower have enough intelligence to bloom? Actually, you understand already. There is something deep within all of us that knows already."

8 "When the ancients said one's aim in life was to 'Know Thyself', they were exactly right."

9 "Everyone, including the one who reads these words, is within myself/yourself-as-Awareness. This is self-evidently and undeniably true for each of us."

10 "As Awareness itself, we are Everyman."

11 "There is Good going on everywhere."

12 "There is something good, for goodness sake, in everyone."

13 "Listen carefully:…There is a 'flow' from the Ineffable Beyond Name into our conscious/unconscious awareness, and from there into tangibility….That Flow is continual, constant, ever-flowing."

14 "In a marvelous and mysterious way, an Overtruth takes care of our affairs."

15 "The terrors of the world are the chrysalis of Self-discovery. We emerge from the necessary far country of ignorance and its anguish, to rediscover the Child within and 'return' to the Father's house."

16 "We are in this world to do something good for all mankind."

17 "Our prayers, meditations, yearnings, longings, and spiritual leadings are ever directed by Godhead through the Divine Child of Us, the Original of Us who resides in the bosom of God."

18 "Listen, listen: The Divine Child within can be found anywhere along the line at any moment."

19 "As the Apostle [Paul] wrote, without love everything is lost."

20 "Tangibility is the product of the Intangible, therefore the body of us will find itself cared for as certainly as the oak and willow, as surely as the laurel and lily. By whom or What? By the same Ineffable for whom the body of humanity blossoms. How do I know this is so? Because I have lived it so, am living it so NOW and KNOW it is so."

21 "Between the two (objective/subjective) is ONE, greater than either separately, and the Source of both."

22 "There is always local confirmation of good at hand if we persistently look for it."

23 "We examine a rock and the rock contains information about the earth. We look at a tree and learn of all life. We get to know a friend and have a knowledge of Everyman. We perceive Everyman and know the Self. We know the Self and have as much knowledge of Godhead as Infinite Wisdom is capable of perceiving. Is it any wonder so many of the great philosophies have advocated 'Know Thyself!'"

24 "The Child within that sparks the life of each of us is God's own Self-awareness in the process of happening."

25 "Light is here, unheralded and unnoticed, living us, supporting and warming us – the very spark of Being Itself. The Divine Child of us IS that Light, here and now."
