The Early Quaker Testimony in the Words of George Fox

A Testimony Many Quakers Past, Present, and Future will not abide. George Fox in his own words unfiltered by agenda testifying to Presence.

Now, reader, whosoever thou art that readest this following volume, if thy mind be sober, and thy heart right towards God, thou may come to a good understanding of the ground and cause of this great controversy, between the priests and the professorship of this nation, and us who are in scorn called Quakers, for it is not unknown to…

Life in the Life

I am the eternal Presence that liberates consciousness from identity with outward ideals and institutions. I am a new and different idenitity. In me there is neither man nor woman, Quaker nor Pentecostal, rich nor poor. I am identity and meaning itself; lived  in immediacy.

Faith in the living Gospel; the direct and immediate experience of Presence.

I am the living liquid that flows in and through each moment in your life. I am both the chalice and the liquid itself. In all things turn your mind to my presence and it will be renewed and transformed by my light candling your conscious and conscience.I am the living Word that the abstracted mind rejects in favor of outward ideas, conceptual frameworks, and insitutions.

I am non-conceptual. I am not an object ... I am life eternal experienced directly. I am in the living present,…
