7.6-1

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

Brain cells are the building blocks of visualization.

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

Habitual behavior is a result of habitual thinking.

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

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

Speaking causes others to visualize our words. Visualization creates “feeling.”

“Feeling” is emotion expressed in mood. “Feeling” adds vitality to thought (7.15)

(7.3) Idealization is the process of visualizing or idealizing the conditions we desire to see manifested in our lives.

Idealization is when we intentionally visualize mental pictures that correspond with our ideal state.

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

When we hold an image or picture in mind, we are expressing love on a cosmic level.

Keep in mind:

  1. We attract what we think about regardless of wether our thoughts are supportive or destructive.
  2. The way in which the object of our thought will manifest may not be the way we desire. Just like the saying, “be careful what you wish for,” because what you want in your life may appear in a way you do not want, which is why we should always “keep an open mind (7.22)” and hold an image or picture in mind rather than on how we want our object of thought to materialize.

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

7.12-7

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

Muscles strengthen as they learn to cope with resistance.

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

The fastest way to transcend feeling overwhelmed by conditions we experience is to find a lesson that can be learned.

We appropriate what we require for our growth by integrating the intended lesson–by making application of the knowledge we gain from the lesson.

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. (7.20)

(7.10) The alternative to failure is to concentrate on conditions we desire to see manifested in our lives.

When we concentrate on conditions we desire to see manifest in our lives, we create a predominant mental attitude that is actively looking and seeing conditions that confirm our desire.

(7.9) Many fail because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. The law is working perfectly; fear is manifesting.

Directed attention forms our predominant mental attitude.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and firm demand are necessary steps to utilize cause and effect for the achievement of our plans.

These necessary steps are like a predominant mental attitude insurance policy; the are the checks and balances to ensure we are directing our attention toward our ideal state.

(7.7) The necessary condition for the materialization of the ideal is the law of attraction.

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

7.18-13

(7.18) We may overcome all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

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

The law of love is the creative principle of the universe. (7.15)

(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 is then taken up by the subconscious and  the law of attraction brings the inevitable substance to growth. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

 

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

What we think determines our attitude about conditions we experience, thus, reinforcing what we have already decided to believe.

(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 inevitable substance to growth.

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

(7.18) We may overcome all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

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

Natural law is the principle of cause and effect/law of attraction.

7.24-19

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

Giving creates room for receiving; this is why it is so essential.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

Selfishness prohibits receiving; this is why it is so essential to avoid.

(7.22) We may be of the most service by keeping an open mind. Be interested in the race rather than the goal; the pursuit rather than the possession.

We are of service to others when we truly listen. It is only possible to truly listen if you are free of judgement and assumptions, which is what we refer to as an “open mind.”

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

To succeed, one must first learn to listen. This is our greatest opportunity to serve others.

(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.

Applying knowledge is the only way to prevent “in one ear and out the other.”

The degree of harmony we achieve is indicated by the degree in which we appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience. (7.20)

(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 the knowledge of cause and effect (the law of attraction); the principle by which thought is brought forth into manifestation. (7.14)

As soon as we apply this knowledge–by taking the incentive to direct or redirect our attention to an idea that supports our ideal state–the “light” is turned “on.”

7.30-25

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

There is a term, Famous for being Famous. This refers to a byproduct of our celebrity culture in which people desire fame regardless os a lack of talent or initiative. Except fame is an effect, not a cause. You need to first have something to become famous for.

Similarly, success is an effect not a cause. If you want to be successful, you must first discover the passion that will take you there, and pursue it like a pearl of great price.

(7.29 ) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. there is none other.

Regardless of our awareness of cause and effect, it is the principle by which thought manifest in form. (7.14)

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

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

Our object of directed attention forms the predominant mental attitude–the filter that determines how we experience conditions.

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

Each time you direct your attention to the “recipe” or “blueprint” for life suggested by others without questioning wether it supports your ideal state, you give your power away.

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

Living debt free, budgeting effectively and saving money are essential to success.

“The habit of saving is itself and education. It fosters every virtue, teaches denial, cultivates the sense of order, trains to forethought, and so broadens the mind.”                                         ~ T.T. Munger

“Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.”                                             ~ Warren Buffett

Crossover Week #7 (e)

(6.6) Mind can be changed by the process called thought. Thought creates brain cells and these cells respond to the corresponding thought in the Universal.

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

Conscious thought enables us to constantly control our attitude toward conditions we encounter in life.

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

(6.5) This mechanism is the brain.

The brain is the machinery of cause and effect.

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

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

Conscious will can override the default system (subconscious) of heredity.

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

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

Every thought counts.

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

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

Power is only an asset if we use it.

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

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

Energy is as responsible for generating thought as it is to generate effects.

Crossover Week #7 (d)

(6.12) All motion, light, heat or color, have their origin in Universal Energy, which are one form of Universal Mind.

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

When we begin to think we have discovered absolute truth, we can be certain we are misled.

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

(6.11) The source of all wisdom, power, and intelligence, in Universal Mind.

Infante possibilities emerge from Universal Mind. When you begin confessing your “reality” you may be sure that is the reality you will begin to perceive.

(6.10) Men are learning the basic methods of constructive thought. This is allowing them to create conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.

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

When we use constructive thought to the benefit of ourselves and others, we come into possession of greater power.

(5.9) All life and power is from within.

(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 the cause, we control the effect.

Concentration is directed attention on our desired object of thought. This includes the ability to dissolve or replace unwanted thoughts.

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

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

The omnipresence of omniscience is a recognition of Universal Mind within all life. With this knowledge, the belief of others empowers our concentration.

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

(6.7) Concentration is the highest personal achievement that can be acquired. It is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman.

Concentration empowers us to compose and construct a stronger and more sturdy mental home.

Crossover Week #7 (c)

(6.18) All things originate in mind.

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

Facts originate in mind; these are things we decide must be true–our beliefs.

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

(6.17) Quarks and electrons are the first form the Universal takes, as far as we know.

Strange and unexplained phenomena are concepts without actual form (actual form results from quarks and electrons). The appearance of form is not form.

(6.16) The power of the individual to think is his ability to act upon the Universal and bring desire into manifestation.

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

Observation allows us to become aware of facts. When we think on these facts, we manifest concepts into form.

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

(6.15) The Universal produces various combinations that result in the formation of phenomena.

The formation of phenomena = when concepts manifest as form. This is all the evidence we need to destroy superstition, precedent and conventionality.

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

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

Thought is the “electricity” generated from mind–the “engine.”

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

(6.13) The creative power of thought originates in Universal Mind.

The class of facts that cannot be accounted for in the visual daily observation of life are these are concepts without (actual) form. They originate in Universal Mind.

 

 

 

Crossover Week #7 (b)

(6.24) Thought is spiritual and, therefore, creative and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

(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.

Omniscience is the ability to know everything, which is a spiritual function available to us by taking the incentive to direct our attention (act upon Universal Energy).

(5.23) This power is manifested through the individual. Each individual is a channel whereby energy is differentiated in form.

(6.23) A conscious recognition of perfection–first intellectually and them emotionally–brings about a manifestation of this perfection.

Our ability to channel energy means is confirmation of our perfection. Conditions we encounter are merely the “territory” but our thoughts are the map/blueprint. If we want to change our “reality tunnel” we must first change the object of our thoughts and eventually conditions will change in harmony with our thoughts.

(6.22) Man is a spiritual being and his spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.

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

Man has the ability to interact with Universal Mind. This accounts for our perfection. If you have two legs but choose not to walk, you can not say you don’t have the ability. Choosing not to direct your attention does not make you incapable of directing your attention. Thus, laziness is not a valid reason to claim you are imperfect.

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

(6.21) Sickness may be eliminated by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.

By taking incentive to direct our attention towards a desired outcome, we are becoming conscious of our ability to 1) interact with Universal Energy, and 2) observe when our thoughts are not in harmony with our ideal state, and redirect them towards our ideal state.

(6.20) The result of a harmonious mental attitude is harmonious conditions in life.

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

A harmonious mental attitude reinforces the creative power of thought.

(5.19) This knowledge explains the cause of every possible condition–spiritually, mentally, and physically.

(6.19) The result of a change in thought is a change in conditions.

With this knowledge, we can eliminate imperfect conditions.

Crossover Week #7 (a)

(6.30) True science and true religion are twin sisters. Where the one goes, the other–necessarily–follows.

(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.

Science = observation    Religion = ritual .  Regime = worldview

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

(6.29) This system will meet every human requirement or necessity.

Our predominant mental attitude will empower us or blind us to “unprecedented and limitless opportunity.” 

(6.28) For the first time in the worlds history, mankind’s highest reasoning faculty can be satisfied with demonstrate-able truth which is, now, fast-flooding the world.

(5.28) Experiences come to us through the law of attraction.

Demonstrate-able truth = thoughts are causes, conditions are effects.

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

(6.27) Millions are making use of mental therapeutics.

Mental therapeutics is the ability to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all petty and annoying obstacles.

(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, modifies, controls, changes, or destroys a lower rate of vibration.

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

Our unity with the source of all power enables us to adjust our rate of vibration (cause) to produce a spectrum of effects.

(5.25) The result of this discovery is nothing short of marvelous; it opens unprecedented and limitless opportunity.

(6.25) The law of vibration is then brought into operation for the greater good.

The greater good is limitless opportunity.
