What is Mechanism?
| From time immemorial and through all ages and lands, there has existed a fundamental belief that an inner or divine degree of knowledge may be acquired or revealed to human beings under certain conditions. This knowledge is invariably related to the nature and destiny of the soul of an individual and its relationship to a Deity. This is a fundamental principle from which all modern religions sprung, but Mechanism, not being a religion, concerns itself with the nature of the Belief and not its form.|
| The secrets of the inner being of an individual and the Divine knowledge that leads to the discovery of our relationship with the Deity are imbued in the "center" or the core of our soul, which is the spirit. The discovery and joyful utilization of this knowledge constitutes "Christ Consciousness." Mechanism strives to teach the attainment of this knowledge and the application of its principles and tenets in our daily lives.|
| It is recognized however, that these inner values being of a spiritual nature are incommunicable. They transcend communication by word of mouth or hand, but are capable of manifestation through our way of life, and therefore can be felt and assimilated through the right light radiations, but in the main, can only be attained through personal endeavor.|
