6.1-6

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

Electricity is the method of transmitting power.

(6.2) These effects can be changed by changing the mechanism to which electricity is attached.

Power is received by whatever is “plugged into” the outlet.

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

Conditions and experiences are a result of thought, which produces cause and effect.

(6.4) These conditions can be changed by changing the mechanism by which thought is differentiated.

The brain is differentiated by the how we direct our attention.

(6.5) This mechanism is the brain.

Our ability to think is a function of the brain.

(6.6) Thought creates brain cells and these cells respond to the corresponding thought in the universal.

Thought is substance in equilibrium. Enough substance results in form.

5.25-30

(5.25) The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous. it opens unprecedented and limitless opportunities.

All things are possible for creative potential.

(5.26) We may eliminate imperfect conditions by becoming conscious of our unity with the source of all power.

Confidence of our unity with creative potential eliminates fear.

(5.27) The Master Mind thinks big thoughts; he holds ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all petty and annoying obstacles.

Hold ideas bigger than your goals. Ideas are what give your goals meaning.

(5.28) Experiences come to us through the Law of Attraction.

All experience is an effect we attracted. Thought is the cause.

(5.29) This law is brought into operation by our predominant mental attitude.

Consistent thought determines our predominant mental attitude. Fear or intention (discipline) are the extremes of experience.

(5.30) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of Divine election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual, the democracy of humanity.

We are no longer slaves to ignorance. Take responsibility for your experience by directing attention towards your ideal state

5.19-24

(5.19) This knowledge explains every possible condition; spiritual, mental or physical.

Every condition we meet in life is a result of the creative power of thought.

(5.20) Our best interest will be conserved by recognition of the fact that knowledge of the creative nature of thought puts us in touch with infinite power.

As a result of our awareness of thoughts creative power, we understand all thought is a cause and all conditions, an effect. We begin to make conscious choices with confidence, anticipating the effect of our thoughts.

(5.21) Consciousness is the real secret of power because whatever we become conscious of power it, is invariably manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.

Making choices with the confidence of thoughts creative power is how we integrate knowledge we have gained.

(5.22) The Universal Mind–from which all things proceed and is one and indivisible–is the source of this power.

The universal mind is infinite creative power. It is universal because all consciousness has emerged from the same source.

(5.23) This power is manifested through the individual; each individual is a channel whereby this power is differentiated in form.

All consciousness is an expression of the universal.

(5.24) We may connect with omniscience by our ability to think, which is our ability to act upon Universal Energy, and what we think is produced or created in the objective world.

Thought is all powerful.

5.13-18

(5.13) The class of facts that can not be accounted for in the visual daily observation of life are esteemed most highly.

“Visual daily observation” consists of events we can witness through the operation of the senses.  (3.11) Inductive reasoning is a process of the objective mind… 

(5.14) This principle is founded on reason and experience.

…in which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all. 

(5.15) This principle destroys superstition, precedent and conventionality.

(1.29) Intuition is superior to reason because it does not depend on experience or memory and frequently brings about a solution to our problem by methods of which we are in entire ignorance.

(5.16) These laws have been discovered by a generalization of facts that are unusual, rare, strange, and form the exception.

The unusual, rare, strange are a manifestation of natural law and do not rely on reason.

(5.17) We may account for strange and unexplainable phenomena by the creative power of thought.

We may “talk ourselves into” everything from the paranormal to the supernatural.

(5.18) When we learn of a truth we can be sure it is the result of a certain definite cause, and the cause will operate with invariable precession.

Cause and effect is the means of existence. (2.26)

5.7-12

(5.7) We compose and construct our mental home by the thoughts we entertain.

Our “mental home” is our predominant mental attitude.

(5.8) A recognition of the omnipresence of omnipotence is the secret of power.

Unlimited power (omnipotence) is everywhere (omnipresent) because it is the ability of each individual to think (and inspire others to think).

(5.9) All life and power are from within.

“Within” is originating from the individual(s).

(5.10) The possession of power is contingent upon a proper use of the power already in our possession.

Power begins with our ability to consistently direct our attention/thought toward a specific outcome.

(5.11) Observe individual facts carefully, patiently, and accurately before venturing to make a statement of natural law.

“Statements” are verbal expressions of thought. When we speak, air vibrates between our vocal chords. Thought is given expression , and reverberates into the world.

(5.12) We may know this method is correct by not permitting a tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts.

A “tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts” is an attempt to validate a belief system.

5.1-6

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

90% of what we do is done without consciously thinking about it.

(5.2) This vast mental storehouse is generally not utilized.

We could use 90% more or our mental resources.

(5.3) Few understand or appreciate that subconscious activity may be consciously directed.

We use our mental resources by consciously thinking.

(5.4) The conscious mind receives its governing tendencies from heredity, which means it is a result of all past generations.

Habits (the 90%) is inherited (evolution) and learned from the behavior of others.

(5.5) The law of attraction is bringing us to our own.

Like a magnet, life will materialize form that resonates with our authenticity.

(5.6) “Our own” is who we inherently are; the result of all past thinking, both conscious and subconscious.

(4.30) What we do depends on who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think. Thus, our quality of thought determines conditions we meet in life.

 

 

Crossover Week #2 (e)

(3.25) Thought is the seed that results in action. Action results in form.

(4.25) Correct scientific thought is the ability to adjust our thought process to the will of the universal; to cooperate with natural law.

When we adjust our thought process, our actions change. If actions (behavior) does not change, we have not adjusted our thoughts beyond theoretical “head” knowledge.

(3.26) Form depends upon the rate of vibration.

(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

All forces, methods, and combinations of mind have a corresponding rate of vibration.

(3.27) The rate of vibration may be changed by mental activity.

(4.27) Universal mind is the basic fact of all existence.

Vibration is an expression of the creative potential of the universal, in motion.

(3.28) Mental action depends upon polarity; action and interaction between the universal and the individual.

(4.28) Lack. limitation, disease, inharmony and discord are the result of the exact same law. This law acts relentlessly and is continuously bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thought that originates or creates them.

All thought in interaction between the individual and the universal.

(3.29) Creative power originates in the universal but can manifest itself only through the individual.

(4.29) Inspiration is the art of self realization. It is the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the universal mind; a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.

Instigating change is how we act upon the universal to manifest our ideal state.

(3.30) The individual is so important because the universal is static and requires energy to start it in motion. This is furnished by food which is converted into energy and–in turn– allows the individual to think. When he stops eating, he stops thinking. There is, consequently, no action or interaction. The universal is pure mind in static form; mind at rest.

(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think. Thus, our quality of thought determines the conditions we meet in life.

All that think and do–including what we consume, touch and direct our attention toward–affects the rate of vibration by which thought is transmitted.

Crossover Week #2 (d)

(3.19) The law of attraction is the natural law by which faith is brought forth into manifestation.

(4.19) It is impossible for the mind to grasp an entirely new idea if there is not a corresponding vibratory thought capable of receiving the idea.

Repetition (of thought and action) increases confidence (faith).

(3.20) A knowledge of the law of attraction has eliminated the elements of caprice and uncertainty in mens lives and substituted law, reason, and certitude.

(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration; it is an unfoldment. It comes from within.

Confidence in natural law, inductive reasoning and observable fact empowers concentration and motivates us to instigate change in support of our ideal state.

(3.21) Extremes are designated by distinctive names such as inside and out, top and bottom, light and dark, good and bad.

(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use; use determines its existence.

Non duality is a state of non judgement. It is a recognition of extremes without the impulse to judge ourselves or others by these labels.

“Use” is integration of knowledge we have gained. It means we actually use the knowledge we have gained to adjust ourselves (4.14) in support of our ideal state.

(3.22) These are not separate entities but parts or aspects of the whole.

(4.22) Recognition is consciousness.

Extremes correspond with unique states of consciousness.

(3.23) Universal mind-the eternal energy from which all things proceed–is the creative principle of the spiritual, mental, and physical world.

(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.

Thinking is the tool of which we access unlimited creative potential.

(3.24) We are related to this creative principle by our ability to think.

(4.24) The great business of life is correct scientific thought.

The purpose of life is to create. We do this by thinking.

 

Crossover Week #2 (c)

(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guide, and determine action.

(4.13) A practical working knowledge of cause and effect is secured through an understanding of natural law.

Need, want and desire are expressions of CONSCIOUSNESS, which directs force.

Cause and effect is the SUBSTANCE through which consciousness exerts force.

Natural law is the principle of life to thrive–the guiding FORCE of evolution/progress.

(3.14) The formula for the unerring solution of every problem is to believe our desires have already been fulfilled. Their accomplishment will soon follow.

(4.14) The effect of an understanding of natural law is a conscious realization that we can adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles.

A conscious realization that all conditions are effects and all thoughts and actions are the cause of conditions, provides us with the confidence and motivation to adjust our thoughts and actions to support the creation of conditions that support the ideal state we desire to manifest in our lives.

(3.15) Jesus, Plato, and Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.

(4.15) The degree of success we achieve is indicated by the degree in which we realize that we can not change the infinite but must cooperate with it.

Natural law is infinite, thus, we must be able to differentiate thought and action that supports Natural law from what does not. Selfish (self serving) thought and actions do not support natural law.

This method of thinking (inductive reasoning/faith) has been recognized throughout history.

(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed will germinate into fruition.

(4.16) 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.

Natural Law is absolute. We may direct this FORCE to produce infinite SUBSTANCE (form) as a result of our CONSCIOUSNESS state. The “highest” consciousness state we can operate from is a position of love because love is the greatest expression of Natural Law. As long as we do not “disturb” our thoughts and actions with selfish intent, the seeds we ave planted will blossom into manifestation.

(3.17) This belief is scientifically intact because it is a natural law.

(4.17) It is invincible because it is a natural law. All natural laws are invincible, unchangeable and act with mathematical certitude, without deviation or variation.

Natural law is absolute because it can be/has been consistently observed (measured).

(3.18) “Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.

(4.18) A solution to our problem seems difficult if we are uninformed or inexperienced.

We reaffirm our confidence/faith through repeated observation of the effects of Natural Law to manifest conditions based on our quality/object of thought.

Crossover Week #2 (b)

(3.7) Fear can be eliminated by an understanding and recognition of the true source of power.

(4.7) The secret of power is service.

Service (what we do and think about others) eliminates fear.

(3.8) Our predominant mental attitude determines the conditions we meet in life.

(4.8) We get what we give.

Our attitude towards others influences the attitude of others toward us.

(3.9) To awake the solar plexus, mentally state what is wanted.

(4.9) The silence is a physical stillness.

Mentally state what is wanted in a concentrated state. This can be facilitated by a physical stillness. This is why it is so important to remain still during meditation. Silence allows our nervous system to settle down.

(3.10) Universal mind is the creative principal of the universe.

(4.10) The silence is the first step towards self control; self mastery.

Physical stillness (the silence) allows us to develop discipline and “control” over the restlessness of body, which is an expression of a restless mind. As the body settles, the mind settles. Think about how much good you are doing your nervous system and the discipline you are cultivating by remaining still, and your mind will settle itself. There is no need to think about silencing your mind because as soon as you direct your attention to silencing the mind, you are reinforcing that mind is not settled.

It is easier to access universal mind when our restless (ruminating/monkey mind) is settled, and Universal Mind is the infinite fountain of supply (1.5).

(3.11) Inductive reasoning is a process of the objective mind in which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all.

(4.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved through a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.

A scientific understanding is the “observer state,” where we utilize inductive reasoning to secure an understanding of the power of our thoughts with reference to cause and effect.

(3.12) Inductive reasoning is a method of study which has revealed a reign of law which marks an epoch in human progress.

(4.12) Knowledge of our power, courage to dare, and the faith to do so are necessary steps to materialize the ideal.

We acquire knowledge through inductive reasoning. We integrate this knowledge by making “updating” our thinking and actions to constantly support our ideal state.
