The Silence: What It Is and How to Use It
THOUGHT TO HOLD IN SILENCE AND
TO MEDITATE UPON DURING THE DAY
"There's a Spirit of Justice that Secures me in Which is My Own."
If we reach a consciousness of justice, we need have no doubts as
to our care in every particular while journeying between the two
peaks of eternity--from birth to the Great Divide.
There is nothing that can defeat justice; and the person who has
a consciousness of justice will attract to himself every
conceivable thing needed for this life, because it will be the logical
objective of justice to supply to each individual that justice for which
That is the reason why this affirmation is so complete in
itself; namely, "There is a spirit of JUSTICE that secures me in which

mistaken. He may have occupied his present position for many years, first putting his weight on
one side and then on the other in an effort to keep his equilibrium. Perhaps today it appears that
the scales of justice are being well manipulated by his insincerity, duplicity or trickery--but it is
like the green bay tree. It will soon pass away.
Justice is as eternal as God Himself, and there is no more possibility of defeating it in the
individual's life, in your own life, in the life of a nation or in the history of mankind, than there is
