(3.1) The Cerebral Spinal System of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.
(6.1) Some of the effects that can be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.
(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition of all well being.
(4.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved by a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.
(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we desire for our growth from each experience.
(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.
(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.
(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.
Our senses send information to the brain via the Cerebral Spinal System. In the same way that wires carry messages from devises to the source of electricity. We feel how we act. A scientific understanding is information we have gained through observation. “Appropriate information we have learned” in applying the knowledge we have gained. Our degree of intelligence is is measured by our conscious state. Awareness of knowledge brings the unseen into view. A knowledge of the truth is our awareness of how our thoughts are creating our perceptions of reality, upon which we make decisions that will lead to what conditions next present themselves.
(8.30) The result of an understanding of constructive thinking is a recognition that “god” is a symbol of Universal Mind, which really and truly does live within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding.
(5.21) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of dive election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual; the democracy of humanity.
(2.30) We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think.
(7.20) Insight allows us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true.
(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.
(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects are necessary for spiritual methods to be used.
(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thinking. This is allowing us to direct conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.
(3.10) The Universal is the creative principle of the universe.
“God” is a mythological representation of each individuals ability to direct their attention toward manifesting ideal conditions. The thoughts of others are like clay that are molded by the story we tell ourselves about what they are thinking. Our story determines how we feel. Applying this information means taking responsibility for your thoughts. Concentration is the ability to direct attention. This generates an omnipotent power because thought is our connection to unlimited creative potential; the creative principle of the Universe. Directing our attention toward manifesting our ideal state is constructive thinking.
(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience.
Discovering what we can learn from each experience allows us to “let go” of unpleasant emotions.
(7.12) Difficulty and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.
Difficulty and obstacle provide the necessary resistance to make “training” possible. Just as if you were working out, difficulty and resistance allow us to develop “muscle.”
(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.
Suffering is the result of trying to resist or deny difficulty and obstacle.
(7.14) The law of attraction is the principle by which thought manifests in form.
The law of attraction is cause & effect.
(7.15) The law of love–which is the creative principle of the universe–adds vitality to thought while the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth.
The law of love is a recognition that each individual is an outlet of the very same creative potential that can empower our desires.
(7.16) Desirable conditions are the result of entertaining desirable thoughts only.
(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord of every kind. This mental photography of erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction inevitably crystalizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sew is scientifically intact.
Directed attention will manifest in our perception of conditions. Perception, then, influences our attitude. Attitude determines how we will react or respond to conditions. Our reaction or response will create new conditions.
(7.18) We may eliminate all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.
The principle referred to is an applied understanding of cause and effect
(7.19) A conscious recognition of the truth invariably destroys error. We do not have to laboriously shovel the darkness out. All that is required is to turn the light on. This same principle applies to every form of negative thought.
The “truth” is that whatever we direct our attention toward, we will come to “believe.”
(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself which is–by no means–true.
We apply the knowledge we have gained by taking responsibility for our thoughts.
(4.11) Any purpose in life can be achieved through a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.
“Scientific” refers to observing effects produced by thoughts (cause) and directing our attention to consistently applying this knowledge regardless of the situation we are experiencing.
(4.12) Knowledge of our power, courage to dare, and the faith to do so, are necessary steps to materialize the ideal in the objective world.
“Our power” is our ability to direct our attention. “Courage to dare” is refers to decisions we make with anticipation of effects that will be produced by directed attention. “Faith” refers to our confidence in the principle of cause & effect.
(4.13) A practical working knowledge of cause and effect is secured by an understanding of natural law.
“Understanding natural law” is recognizing that all nature unfolds based on the principle of cause & effect.
(4.14) The effect of an understanding of natural law is a recognition that we can adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles.
When we understand that cause & effect (natural law) is the guiding (divine and unchanging) principle of experience, we can intentionally begin to direct our attention (cause) to produce desired effects.
(4.15) The degree of success we achieve in indicated by the degree in which we realize we can not change the infinite but must cooperate with it.
The infinite is cause & effect, as expressed in by the concepts of polarity and duality, upon which all form and experience depends.
“Realize” refers to our willingness to accept responsibility for our thoughts.
(4.6) The law of attraction rests on vibration which–in turn–rests on love. This is the principle which gives thought its dynamic power. Any thought impregnated with love is invincible.
The law of attraction is cause & effect. “Vibration” refers to the resonance created by thought. “Love” is the force that compels us to one another; the recognition that all individuals are expressions of the same unlimited creative potential.
(4.7) It is invincible because it is a natural law. All natural laws are invincible, unchangeable, and act with mathematical certitude–without deviation or variation.
Cause & effect is the only principle which can be relied upon to produce measurable results.
This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is none other. (7.29)
(4.8) A solution to our problem seems difficult if we are uninformed or inexperienced.
“Uninformed” refers to ignorance of natural law. “Inexperienced” means we have not applied knowledge we have gained.
(4.9) It is impossible for the mind to receive an entirely new idea if there is not a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.
We learn by repetition.
Each repeated action renders the image more accurate than the former. (7.5)
(4.10) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.
Wisdom is the ability to make choices without the hinderance of internal bias and chatter.
(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition to all well-being.
Well-being is peace of mind. Well-doing refers to how we treat others and speak of them.
(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent to all constructive action.
What we do (action) is directed by what we think. This is a cyclical motion.
(1.13) A knowledge of the truth is the underlying condition necessary to all constructive action.
“Truth” in this context, is the story we tell ourselves. A “knowledge of the truth” is, thus, an awareness of how the story we tell ourselves will influence our behavior. Constructive action is behavior that supports our ideal state (purpose).
(1.14) If we know the truth we can readily predict the results of every action based on a true premise.
An “ability to predict the results” refers to a knowledge of how our thoughts will produce desired effects. A true premise is an intentional use of directed attention (thought).
(1.15) If the premise is false we are unable to anticipate the results that may ensue.
“False” refers to thought that does not support our ideal state, which leads to conflict between our desire and our perception of conditions, which influences how we respond or react, which–in turn–creates new conditions.
(1.16) We may know the truth by a recognition of the fact that truth is the vital principle of the universe.
“Vital principle of the Universe” refers to a recognition that all form begins the interaction between thought and unlimited creative potential.
(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.
“Spiritual” is a word that describes the interaction between the individual and the Universal.
(1.18) The secret to the solution to every problem is to apply spiritual truth.
We apply spiritual truth by ensuring our thoughts support our ideal state, which is, necessarily, the solution to every problem.
(1.19) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.
Spiritual methods refers to strategies that allow us to direct our attention to support our ideal state. They are always available in-as-much as we are able to consciously think.
(1.20) A recognition of the omnipresence of spiritual truth and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.
“Omnipresence of spiritual truth” refers to the fact that every individual has the ability to think. A “desire to be a recipient” refers to our intention. “Beneficial,” in this context, is unselfish.
(6.1) Some of the effects that can be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.Energy empowers many of the tools that enrich our experience. .
(6.2) These effects depend upon the mechanism to which electricity as attached.These tools are connected to an energy source.
(6.3) The conditions and experiences we meet in life are the result of the action and interaction of the individual upon the Universal.Thought is spiritual energy. It is “spiritual” because it involves the Universal, which is “outside” of physical manifestation.
(6.4) These effects can be changed by changing the mechanism to which the Universal is differentiated.Perceptions of experience are the effects. Thoughts are the cause, by which we are related to the Universal.
(6.5) This mechanism is the brain.The brain is responsible for generating thought.
(6.6) This may be changed by the process called thinking. Thoughts create brain cells and these cells respond to the corresponding thought in the Universal.The Universal (unlimited creative potential) is a multiverse of infiinite possibilities. Quantum physics interprets these as alternate dimensions. When our intention is communicated to the Universal via the Solar Plexus, it is supported by this “corresponding thought” in the Universal.
(6.7) Concentration is the highest personal achievement that can be acquired. It is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful person.Success is dependent on being able to consistently direct our attention toward what we desire.
(6.8) Concentration may be acquired by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.Mental exercise is intentionally directing our attention toward activities that require concentration.
(6.9) Concentration is so important because it allows us to control our thoughts and since every thought is a cause, every condition is an effect. Therefore, if we control he cause, we control the effect.Concentration allows us to develop mindful awareness of our thoughts and the consequences they produce.
(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thought, which allows us to direct conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.With mindful awareness, we can create and maintain the experiences we desire.
(3.1) The Cerebral Spinal System of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.
The Cerebral Spinal System is concerned with transmission of impulses from sense organs to the voluntary muscles.
(3.2) The Sympathetic System of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.
The Sympathetic System-responsible for flight or flight–is part of the Autonomic Nervous System, which is responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes.
(3.3) The Solar Plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating.
The Solar Plexus is a complex of ganglia and radiating nerves of the sympathetic system at the pit of the stomach.
(3.4) This distribution may be interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.
If the nerves of our body were like a garden house, fear is like obstructing the flow of water through the hose.
(3.5) The result of this disruption is every ill which the human race has been afflicted.
When the flow of energy is obstructed, dis-ease is the result.
(3.6) This energy can be controlled and directed by conscious thought.
Conscious thought eliminates obstruction.
(3.7) Fear can be eliminated by an understanding and recognition of the true source of power.
The true source of power is our ability to consciously direct attention.
(3.8) Our predominant mental attitude determines the conditions we meet in life.
Our predominant mental attitude is the filter of all experience.
(3.9) To awake the solar plexus, mentally state what is wanted.
By mentally stating what is wanted, and consistently reinforcing this desire, we remove obstructions of energy and allow the solar plexus to radiate at the vibration that will “attract” our desire.
(3.10) Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe.
Universal Mind is the source of unlimited creative potential. Directing Attention “travels” through the nerves of our body and–upon reaching our Solar Plexus–is the “communicated” to Universal Mind.
(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.
(5.5) The law of attraction is bringing us to our own.
(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.
(3.15) Jesus, Plato, and Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.
(6.15) The Individual is the means by which the Universal produces various combinations that result in the formation of phenomena.
(1.25) Thought is transmuted into character and character is the magnet that creates the environment of the individual.
(4.25) Constructive thinking is the ability top adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles; to cooperate with natural law.
(7.25) Financiers frequently meet with great success because they do their own thinking.
The subconscious can be “reprogramed’ through habitual conscious thought. Cause and effect brings to us that which we think about because thoughts are causes. Jesus, Plato, and Swedenborg all taught this. Ignorance is unapplied knowledge. Character reveals what we think about most often. Constructive thinking is attention directed toward thoughts/causes that produce desire conditions/effects. Those who think for themselves meet with success.
(7.26) The great majority remain docile and willing tools of the few because they allow the few to do their thinking for them.
(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.
(1.26) The mental element is the controlling factor of every commercial pursuit.
(6.16) The power of the individual to think is his ability to act upon the Universal and bring manifest desire.
(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed, will germinate into fruition.
(8.6) Knowledge is a result of mans ability to think.
(5.6) Our own is who we inherently are–the result of all past thinking.
(2.6) To impress the subconscious mentally state what is wanted.
We can think for ourselves (constructive thought) through observing ways in which subconscious thought is generated in mind and consciously directing thought to create causes that will produce our desired effects. Those with a mental advantage succeed. This advantage is knowledge. We are what we think. We can consciously direct our attention by mentally stating (visualizing) our desire.
(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination, it has the power of reasoning. It has the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious.
(5.4) The law of attraction (cause & effect) is bringing us to our own
(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while the imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action.
(3.14) The formula for the unerring solution to every problem to is believe our desires have already been fulfilled. Their accomplishment will soon follow.
(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.
(1.24) The nature of our desire must be in harmony with Natural law.
(4.24) Constructive thinking is the great business of life.
(7.24) Our greatest success will be achieved by recognition of the fact that it is just as essential to give as to receive.
Conscious mind is the tool by which we may “reprogram” our subconscious defaults. Utilizing cause & effect is the way to accomplish this. Daydreaming is allowing your thoughts to be directed by ruminating mind. Imagination is the art of intentional thinking. Our belief (confidence in) this principle will compel us to direct our attention to thoughts that support our ideal state. Thought is mind in motion. We must direct our thought (desires) to support the effects we desire. This is harmony with natural law. This is constructive thought. Directing our attention in service of humanity is our greatest success.
(7.27) Concentrating on sorrow and loss brings sorrow and loss into effect.
(4.27) Universal Mind is the basic fact of all existence
(1.27) Mind is the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring within form.
(6.17) Quarks and Electrons are the first form the universal takes, as far as we know.
(3.17) This is scientifically intact because it is a natural law.
(8.7) The mind is a real moving force by which we secure the persons and circumstances necessary to achieve our plans
(5.7) We compose and construct our mental home by the thoughts we entertain.
(2.7) If our desires are in harmony with natural law, forces will be set in motion to bring about the desired result.
Directed attention (concentration) will determine how we experience conditions. Universal Mind is an unlimited source of creative potential from which all quarks and electrons come into being. We access Universal Mind through our physical mind, conscious and subconscious. We are able to confirm this through observation (science). Directed attention attracts.
(2.3) The value of the subconscious is enormous. It guides us, warns us, controls the vital processes and is the seat of memory
(5.3) Few understand or appreciate that subconsciously mind can be consciously directed.
(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.
(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guides, and determines action.
(6.13) The creative power of thought originates in Universal Mind.
(1.23) Spiritual truth is the controlling factor in this method of thought.
(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.
(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.
The subconscious operates everything the conscious mind does not, although it can be consciously directed. The imagination is a mental muscle. Need, want, and desire all describe methods of thinking and determine action we will take. Creative power of the individual begins as creative potential of the Universal. Spiritual truth is a conscious intentional use of cause and effect. Thinking is a cause that creates and effect. Observing this allows us to become conscious of power. Selfish thought works against the manifestation of the ideal state.
(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.
(4.28) All lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord is the result of the exact same law. This law operates relentlessly and is continuously bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thoughts that originate or create them.
(1.28) Concentration operates by the development of the powers of perception, wisdom, intuition and sagacity.
(6.18) All things originate in mind.
(3.18) Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.
(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.
(5.8) The secret of power is a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.
(2.8) Our environment correlates to our predominant mental attitude.
Concentrating alters our perception, regardless of wether the quality of our thought supports conditions we desire or fear. We develop concentration by working towards a mastery of all methods of thinking. All form originates form a union between individual thought and the unlimited creative potential of the Universal. Faith refers to our confidence in the principle of cause & effect. Omniscience (unlimited power) is omnipresent because it exists within everyone. Our predominant mental attitude is the filter of our experience.
(2.2) Ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which we cease to depend upon the conscious mind.
(5.2) This vast mental storehouse is generally not utilized.
(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal from which your future will emerge.
(3.12) Inductive reasoning is a method of study which has revealed a reign of law which marks an epoch in human progress.
(6.12) All motion, light, heat, and color have their origin in Universal Energy which is one form of Universal Mind.
(1.22) Invisible forces are then set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with our thoughts.
(4.22) Power depends upon recognition and use.
(7.22) We may be of the most service by having an open mind; be interested in the race not the goal; the pursuit rather than the possession.
Mastery is the result of “reprograming” the subconscious. This is accomplished by consciously reinforcing habitual behavior that supports our ideal state. When the subconscious is utilized to work for us, imagination produces inspiring ideas. Inductive reasoning is the observation of patterns. If we observe it, we can change it. This is cause and effect (Natural Law). Utilizing cause and effect is power, in service to ourselves and others.
(7.29) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is no other principle. The fact that it may be used unconsciously does not alter the situation.
(4.29) Inspiration is the art of self-realization, the art of adjusting the individual will to the will of the universal; a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.
(1.29) Intuition is superior to reason because it does not depend on experience or memory and frequently brings about the solution to our problems by methods concerning which we are in entire ignorance.
(6.19) The result of a change in thought is a change in perception.
(3.19) The law of attraction (cause & effect) is the law by which faith is brought forth into manifestation.
(8.9) The development of imagination, insight, perception, and sagacity, are the result of keen analytical observation.
(5.9) All life and power from within.
(2.9) This is cause & effect.
Cause and effect is natures law. Inspiration comes as a result of our awareness and willingness to apply this knowledge and adjust ourselves to this law by taking responsibility for our thoughts and actions. In this way, we “listen” to our intuition. There is no one else to blame. No one is coming to save us. By changing how we think we change our perception of conditions, which changes conditions. Observation empowers us.
