(4.24) The great business of life is constructive thought.
(3.24) We are related to this creative principle by our ability to think.
Thought is creative potential. Constructive thought is creative potential that supports our ideal version of experience.
(3.23) Universal Mind–the creative principle 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.
Power is a realization that directed attention affects the spiritual (thinking), mental (attitude) and physical (biological) realms of experience.
(4.22) Recognition is consciousness.
(3.22) These are not separate entities but parts or aspects of the whole.
Recognition (awareness) may be understood as an indication along the spectrum of consciousness. Every “indication” is part of the overall spectrum.
(3.21) Extremes are designated by distinctive names such as inside and out, top and bottom, left and right, good and bad.
(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.
Recognition and use requires application of knowledge we have gained (7.20). With the application, extremes are reframed within the context of the spectrum to which they are, merely, indications.
(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.
(3.20) A recognition of the law of attraction has eliminated the elements of caprice and uncertainty in mens lives and substituted law, reason, and certitude.
“Law” indicates a recognition of a principle or method.
“Reason” indicates the ability to discriminate between possibilities.
“Certitude” indicates the unwavering confidence that accompanies concentration.
(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 accept an entirely new idea if there is not a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.
Faith is contingent upon the reinforcement of a desired outcome.
