(5.1) At least 90% of our mental life is subconscious.

(6.1) Some of the effects that be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.

(7.1) Visualization is the process of creating mental pictures.

(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer or inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

We spend most of our lives controlled by subconscious “default” patterns of behavior. All effects are produced by a cause. Visualization is the cause. Visualization is empowered by imagination. Imagination opens the way to experience.

(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not live.

(7.3) Idealization is a process of visualizing or idealizing conditions we will eventually manifest in the objective world.

(6.3) The conditions and experiences we meet in life are a result of the action and interaction of the individual and the Universal.

(5.3) Few understand or appreciate that subconscious mind can be consciously controlled.

Mental exercise nourishes the imagination and develops our ability to visualize. Idealization is the feeling function. Our perceptions (conditions) are the result of thinking, visualizing and idealizing. Because we are spiritual beings, our thinking, visualizing and idealizing is automatically corresponds with the Universal to change our perception. The subconscious is directed by conscious choice.

(5.8) The omnipresence of omniscience is the secret of power.

(6.8) Concentration may be acquired by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it cannot survive.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and firm demand are necessary steps to bring this law into operation.

(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for fulfillment.

Each person (omnipresence) is a source of unlimited creative potential (omniscience). Our ideal is reinforced  through repetitious concentration that emphasizes desire, expectation, and demand.

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while the imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action.

(7.4) “Seeing” creates “feeling,” “feeling” creates “being.” First the mental, then the emotional, then the unlimited possibilities of achievement.

(6.4) These conditions can be changed by changing the mechanism to which the Universal is attached.

(5.4) The conscious mind receives its governing tendencies from heredity, which means it is the result of the choices and belief systems of all past generations.

Daydreaming does not support our ideal state; imagination does. Visualization (seeing) leads to Idealization (feeling), which leads to our perception of conditions and the solidification of attitude (being).  We can change our attitude by thinking/action that supports our ideal state. If we take no initiative, we will be ruled by our defaults.

(7.5) Each repeated action renders the image more accurate than the former.

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

(8.15) We may take our fate out of the hands of chance by consciously realizing the conditions we desire to see manifested in life.

(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.

(7.25) Financiers frequently meet with great success because they do their own thinking.

(8.25) Universal Mind is the totality of all existence.

Rumination in thought and/or action reinforces our perception of conditions. Ignorance is neglecting this principle. By feeling (realizing) the conditions we desire, we can change our perception, which allows us to respond to conditions rather than react to them. Love is expressed by applying compassion and empathy to others. We do our own thinking by separating the observer (intentional thought/response) from the the observed (reactionary thought). Universal Mind allows us to transcend “the observed” (first person experiencer) and “rise above” our reactions to respond with compassion and empathy.

(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. There is nowhere it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is all spirit and life.

(7.26) The great majority remain docile and willing tools of the few because they allow the few to do their thinking for them.

(7.16) Desirable conditions are secured by entertaining desirable thoughts, only.

(8.16) Thinking is the great business of life.

(8.6) Knowledge is a result of mans ability to think.

(7.6) The material for the construction of these mental images is secured by millions of tiny workers-brain cells.

Universal Mind (original divine consciousness) exists within us not somewhere “out there.” Those looking for god/desses “out there” are allowing others to do their thinking for them.  We determine how we feel by the thoughts we entertain. Thinking determines how we perceive experience. Applied learning is knowledge. Thinking happens as a result of brain cells mirroring thoughts in the Universal (primordial).

(7.4) “Seeing” creates “feeling.” “Feeling” creates “being.” First the mental, then the emotional, then the unlimited possibilities of achievement.

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while the imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action.

(8.14) Spiritual power depends upon use. Use determines its existence.

(7.14) The law of attraction is the principle by which thought manifests in form.

(7.24) Our greatest success will be achieved by a realization that is is just as essential to give as it is to receive.

(8.24) Universal Mind–in which we live and move and have our being–is one and indivisible. It is, therefore, just as possible to help others as it is to help ourselves.

 

Visualization precedes feeling. Feeling determines our state of being. Imagination is intentional and in cooperation with natural law, daydreaming is fantastical and motivated by selfishness. Our ability to direct attention is strengthened by taking every opportunity to direct our attention. This results in the law of attraction. Directing attention for the benefit of others is essential to our own health and growth, because the law of sympathetic resonance ensures that attention we direct towards others will manifest in us, as well.

(8.27) The nature of Universal Mind is spiritual and, therefore, creative. It seeks to manifest itself in form.

(7.27) Concentrating on sorrow and loss brings sorrow and loss.

(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord of every kind. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

(8.17) Thought is spiritual and therefore creative. To consciously control thought is to, therefore, control circumstance, conditions, environment and destiny.

(8.7) Mind is the very real moving force by which we attract the people and conditions necessary for the completion of our plans.

(7.7) The necessary condition for the materialization of the ideal in the objective world is the law of attraction; the natural law by which all conditions and experiences are brought about.

Directed attention is a force that must manifest. Conscious mind must choose to direct attention towards producing effects that we desire, rather than disregarding the consequences (effects) of the cause. In this way, we attract what supports our greatest desires. This is the law of attraction.

(7.3) Idealization is the process of visualizing or idealizing the conditions that will eventually manifest in our lives.

(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise.

(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth concerning the conditions you desire to see manifest in life is the method for destroying all forms of fear.

It is important to feel our mental pictures. Feeling unlocks the true potential of visualization. Memory work is an effective mental exercise. Spiritual power is a knowledge of the creative nature of thought. Suffering is a result of resisting the integration of knowledge we have gained. This knowledge dissolves if our thoughts are selfish.  To dissolve fear, we can either–temporarily–create a new illusion (reality tunnel) or we can transform the mind by contrasting it with the Spirit.

(8.28) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into existence for the benefit of ourselves and others.

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

(7.18) We can overcome all fear, lack, limitation, poverty and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

(8.18) The source of all chaos is destructive thinking.

(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and form demand are necessary steps to bring this law into operation.

If we choose not to intentionally direct our attention, our attention will be directed by conditions and distractions, at the expense of harmony.

Crossover Week #12 (b)

(7.2) By holding an image or picture in mind, we gradually–but surely–draw the thing nearer to us.

(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal, out of which your future will emerge.

(8.12) The true value of wealth is its exchange value.

(7.12) Difficulty and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.

(7.22) We can be of the most service by keeping an open mind. Be interested in the race not the goal; the pursuit not the possession.

(8.22) We are spiritual beings and spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.

Visualization leads to manifestation, although how this manifests may not be in the way we visualize it, so it’s best to avoid becoming attached with a how. Bt exercising imagination regularly, we will develop a knowledge of our ideal state. Wealth means many things and may be considered what others value in/from us. Difficulty and obstacle provide us with an opportunity to apply our knowledge of cause & effect to transcend a reaction and create a response. In this way, we become of service to the greater plan of consciousness becoming aware of itself through our experiences and ability to transform reactions into responses. We have this opportunity to co-create, because we are spiritual beings.

(8.29) Constructive thinking is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view.

(7.29) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is none other. That it may be used unconsciously does not alter the situation.

(7.19) We do not have to laboriously shovel the darkness out. All that is required is to turn the light on. This principle applies to every form of negative thought.

(8.19) The source of all harmony is constructive thought.

(8.9) The development of imagination, insight, perception and sagacity are the result of keen analytical observation.

(7.9) Many fail to secure harmonious conditions because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. the law is working perfectly–fear is manifesting.

Constructive thinking is absent of uncertainty. Constructive and destructive thought are the factors of cause & effect. By actively choosing constructive thought, destructive thought evaporates. This is the secret of securing harmonious conditions. Keen analytical observation develops the qualities of thought that support Constructive thought. If we direct our attention to thoughts (causes) that do not support our ideal state, we will manifest undesired conditions.

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience.

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.

Visualization (mental pictures) are created using imagination, which is a form of constructive thought. Wealth–all forms of abundance–are effects produced by imagination. Peace and harmony are the result of our ability to assign value (learning) and meaning (purpose) to our experience. This is the essence of every system of metaphysics. Service leads us toward success.

(8.30) The result of constructive thinking is you will come to know “The Father” as Universal Mind (original awareness), which really and truly does live within you, and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding.

(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If we want to secure the effect we must ascertain the cause-the thought or idea–by which the effect is created.

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true!

(8.20) Constructive thinking is an understanding of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to direct it.

(8.10) Keen analytical observation leads to opulence and harmony.

(7.10) The alternative is to concentrate on conditions you desire to see manifested in your life.

 

Constructive thinking allows us to realize the divine (original consciousness) within us. Because success is an effect, we must direct our attention toward creating the cause. When we apply this knowledge, we are transformed. We apply this knowledge by directing spiritual energy. This depends on our keen analytical observation and a willingness to apply our imagination toward manifesting our ideal state.
