2.12-7

(2.12) Possessions are of value only as they confer power.

Power is the ability and evidence of our ability to continue to instigate/empower change.

(2.11) Wealth is the offspring of power.

Wealth is the effect. Power is the cause.

(2.10) Thought is creative power and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

Thought is the tool which allows each individual to access the unlimited creative potential of the Universal/nature.

(2.9) This is the law of attraction.

The law of attraction is cause & effect.

(2.8) Our environment reflects conditions corresponding to our predominant mental attitude.

Our predominant mental attitude determines our perception of conditions we encounter in life, which determines the quality of our experience.

(2.7) If our desires are in harmony with the forward movement of the great whole, forces will be set in motion to bring about the desired results.

“In harmony with the great whole” is the principle of nature, otherwise known as love. This means, our desires must benefit others, as well as ourselves.

2.17-12

(2.17) Causation depends upon polarity; a circuit must be formed. The Universal is the positive side of the battery of life, the individual is the negative, and thought forms the circuit.

Yes, like electricity.

(2.16) The universal manifests itself only through the individual.

The Universal is the Power. The individual, the outlet.

(2.15) Thought is the connecting link between the finite and the infinite.

Thought is the “wires” that power moves through.

(2.14) Life originates in the inorganic world only by the introduction of a living form–there is no other way.

Life comes from life. Synthetic reality is produced, not created.

(2.13) A knowledge of cause & effect allows individuals to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.

If we are able to anticipate the effects of our thoughts and actions, we can be intentional with our thoughts and actions.

(2.11) Possessions are of value only at they confer power.

Power is the ability to consciously instigate change; to adapt.

 

2.24-19

(2.24) Universal Mind creates form by means of the individual.

The individual thinks. Thought is how we access the unlimited creative power inherent within nature.

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

The Universal may be understood as the principle guiding nature.

(2.22) We may control other forms of intelligence by a recognition of Self as an individualization if Universal intelligence.

“Self” is the aspect of Universal energy that has become conscious within the individual

(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.

Individuals measure (accept/judge) one another based on the others level of awareness and the degree in which they allow this an this awareness to inform their behavior.

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe.

Spirit is the creative principle of the universe, upon which nature thrives and adjusts itself. Individuals are spiritual because we have ability to think and, therefore, to access this creative power.

(2.19) A conscious recognition of the law of attraction with the intention of bringing it into existence for a definite purpose is necessary to bring this law into operation.

A conscious understanding of cause and effect allows us to adjust our thoughts and actions so they generate desired effects.

2.30-25

(2.30) We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think.

The nature of anthers thought about us will affect us, though not always the way they intend.

(2.29) We give thought.

How we think about others affects them, though not always the way we anticipate.

(2.28) The law of growth depends upon reciprocal action. The individual is complete at all times and this makes it possible to receive only as we give.

Each individual is like a glass of water. We do not know, exactly, how much water we contain–as this may vary between individuals. If there is no room for more water in your glass, then either (a) your cup will overflow and new water will always be diluted by old water, or (b) new water never makes it into your glass.

(2.27) This law is brought into operation by the law of attraction.

Thought influences how conditions manifest. The law of attraction (cause & effect) ensures that the object of our directed attention will eventually find a way to manifest, though it may not manifest in the way we desire or even if we do not desire it at all.

(2.26) The means of existence are carried into effect by the law of love.

The Means of Existence (ME) is the subtle creative force of Universal Mind brought into existence by thought. The law of love (service) may be understood as bringing benefit to the whole rather than the individual, which is fundamental to nature thriving.

(2.25) Thought is the connecting like between the individual and the Universal.

Thought makes it possible to access the creative potential understood as Universal Mind.

1.6-1

(1.6) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into manifestation.

Thought is the “light switch” by which we make use of the “electricity.”

(1.5) The Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom in existence.

Universal Mind is the energy/ingredient used in the formation of all created manifestations.

(1.4) We relate to the Universal Mind by the subconscious mind. The solar plexus is the organ of this mind.

The subconscious “translates” the will of conscious mind into the language of the Universal Mind – which is the creative power of everything in existence.

(1.3) We relate to the objective world by the objective mind. The brain is the organ of this mind.

The objective mind processes information gathered by the senses into forms which ego can understand: symbols.

(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.

Ideas, concepts and thoughts possess us. We have to become conscious of an idea, concept or thought to manifest form.

(1.1) The world without is a reflection of the world within.

The material world of form (objects) is a reflection of the internal world of visualization and idealization.

1.12-7

(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent to all right action.

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

(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition to all well being.

Actions determine incoming conditions.

(1.10) All power comes from within; the universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual–and outlet.

Each individual is an “outlet” of spiritual power, which originates in universal mind. We may use this power by thinking.

(1.9) Discord, disharmony, lack and limitation are the result of destructive thinking.

Destructive thinking is thought which does not support the ideal conditions we desire to see manifest in our life.

(1.8) Harmonious and desirable results are obtained by constructive thinking.

Constructive thinking is when the object of our thought supports tour ideal state.

(1.7) The result of this action and interaction is cause & effect.

Thought produces perception of conditions, which–in turn–determines conditions.

1.17-12

(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.

Spiritual” is the creative power of thought and our ability to consciously direct concentrated thought toward the achievement of specific goals.

(1.16) We may know the truth by a recognition of the fact that truth is the vital principle of the universe and, therefore, omnipresent.

Spirit–the ability to manifest form from thought–is, thus, the vital principle of the universe

(1.15) If the premise is false, we are unable to form a conception of the results that may ensue.

The premise is false if we desire something but think something else,

(1.14) If we know the truth, we can readily predict the outcome of any action based on a true premise.

If we understand that thought is the cause and form (conditions) are the effect, we can anticipate effects based on our consistency with regards to holding an object of thought; quite simply, what we spend time doing will–to a large degree–determine what we are thinking about.

(1.13) A knowledge of the truth is the underlying condition necessary for every business transaction and social relation.

Truth = our ability to affect form with directed attention.

(1.12) Right thinking is the imperative condition for all well being.

How we think affects how we feel.

1.24-18

(1.24)  The nature of our desire must be in harmony with natural law.

If our desire is of benefit to others as well as ourselves, it is in harmony with natural law.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the control factor in this method of thought.

Spiritual truth is a knowledge of the creative power of thought.

(1.22) Invisible forces are then set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence to our thoughts.

The object of our thought will find its own way into manifestation. All we need to do is hold our object of thought in mind and avoid all attachment we may have with regards to how it will manifest.

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with our object of thought that we are conscious of nothing else.

Ruminating mind is like trying to walk in 8 different directions at once.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

Spiritual power (thought) is unlimited power (omnipotence).

(1.19) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.

Spiritual methods are our ability to re/direct our attention.

(1.18) The secret to the solution of every problem is to apply spiritual truth.

A change your thought = a change in perception.

1.30-25

(1.30) A symbol is the outward form of the spiritual reality within. Therefore, unless we possess the the spiritual reality, the form disappears.

All form (manifestation) is a symbol (effect) of the thought (cause) that created it.

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

Ego relies on experience that comes from existence, and the memory of our experience, to make decisions. Intuition is the “voice” of Self advising ego. Intuition is informed by observation, concentration and inductive reasoning.

(1.28) Concentration depends upon the development of perception, wisdom, intuition and sagacity.

We develop perception by keeping an open mind and avoiding absolutes.

We develop wisdom by allowing new perceptions to influence existing perceptions.

We develop intuition by creating new habits rather than being controlled by former ones.

We develop sagacity by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of perceptions.

(1.27) Mind is the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring within form.

Mind is the engine that produces thought.

(1.26) The controlling factor of every commercial pursuit is the mental element.

Our ability to hold any idea in mind will influence the way it is perceived by others.

(1.25) Thought is transmuted into character and character is the magnet that creates the environment of the individual.

How another perceives and is affected by the idea we hold in mind determines–for them–the quality of our character.

 

 

Week 9

Universal mind/cosmic consciousness is the source of all power. Each individual is an outlet of this power. The solar plexus is a “well” by which we send and receive vibrations that correspond with our predominant mental attitude. These vibrations are the language by which we communicate our desires and through which the Universal distributes creative potential.
What we do affects how we feel.
Thought motivates action.
We may avoid dysfunctional relationships by ensuring our thoughts are in harmony with our actions.
The “truth” is determined by whichever thoughts receive the greatest amount of directed attention.
If there is a conflict between our directed attention and our desires, the conditions we encounter in life will not support our ideal state.
If our directed attention supports our desires, our rate of vibration will “transmit” a signal that will attract conditions that support our ideal state.
We can solve every “problem” we encounter by redirecting our attention to concentrate on conditions we desire to manifest.
As long as we are conscious, we have the ability to (re)direct our attention.
Each person is an outlet of Universal creative potential, which we access by thinking. Initiative is understood as our desire to become a recipient of the effects of this power. This is a requirement to use this power.
