Murdo MacDonald-Bayne

Murdo MacDonald-Bayne was born in Scotland in 1887. During his lifetime he travelled throughout the world healing thousands of people of all kinds of diseases and taught the Truth of the Law of Being to many thousands more.

Murdo MacDonald-Bayne was fondly referred to as Dr Mac by his students who often spoke of seeing him overshadowed by a higher being during his lectures. It is said that he journeyed several times into India and Tibet where he spent long periods (recounted in Beyond the Himalayas and its sequel The Yoga of the Christ in the company of true Masters of the Tibetan Himalayas. There his powers to heal were strengthened and he received greater enlightenment for his mission to reveal those profound teachings to the outside world.

The developed spiritual power and wisdom he acquired is reflected in the writings of his first books, The Higher Power You Can Use and I Am the Life. After establishing spiritual centres in several countries, Murdo MacDonald-Bayne lived in New Zealand/Aotearoa and Australia during the early 1940s and by 1944 he settled in South Africa where he continued to heal and give lectures twice a week, some of which are recorded.

He also produced during this period Heal Yourself, Spiritual & Mental Healing, What is Mine is Thine I & II, How to Relax and Revitalise Yourself, Your Life Renewed Every Day. During a visit to England he passed over suddenly in London, February 1955.

The Divine Flame

Understand that you are a spark of the Divine Flame, a drop out of the ocean of Spirit; that you are a being, growing, developing, unfolding, moving forward to a great goal, and then the urge is always upward and onward. Form an idea of a perfect body and endeavour to live so that it will grow accordingly.

Return to Nature. Allow the great Life to flow freely through you. Let the Power do its work for you. All it asks for is confidence. You will find that, within you, you have the power and the plan that have been placed there by the creator.

You soul is evolving and returning home to its great Majesty and Power. Therefore recognize that you have this Power by which you can accomplish many things. It has lived in this physical body, it has gained experience in this world, you have met many fellow-travellers on the same road, you have conversed with some and loved others, and you may have hated too. The fact is that hates and jealousies create destruction in the temple of the Spirit where Love and Joy and Peace and Harmony with your fellow-men bring positive action that gives you strength, health and happiness.

Therefore, within you is this Power, by which you can accomplish many things. By placing your will in contact with the Creator your will and His will become one: and great will be your reward. Have a true understanding of Nature and allow the Divine Principle to manifest through you. Live the natural life, eat natural food, breathe properly, think thoughts of joy and love, and your temple will be complete.
