(8.18) The source of all chaos is destructive thought.
(7.18) We may overcome all fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord, by substituting principle in place of error.
Destructive thought consists of thoughts of fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord of every kind. What we think about becomes what we talk about and what we express in words begins to “possess” us, which is familiar to anyone who has been able to “turn off” a ruminating thought that is unwelcome.
Recognizing all thoughts are causes, we substitute a thought undesired thought(s) for thoughts (and actions) that support our ideal state. This is the method for redirecting energy.
Discovering an actual practice that facilitates this method is up to the individual. Every individual is dealing with a biological and psychological system that is unique to their experience. Essentially, one wants to discover an activity that absolutely consumes them and arrests their attention away from wandering, ruminating, mind. When you discover this activity–which is an expression of your passion–repeat this activity. repetition is key, and it will not be a burden because your passion is your “purpose.”
(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 of erroneous conceptions is the taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction crystalizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact
(8.17) Thought is spiritual and therefore, creative. It seeks to express itself in form.
Because thought seeks to express itself in form, we must be vigilant in our efforts to direct our attention, only, to desired thoughts. Moral distinctions are the job of will. The object of our directed attention will always posses us. Thus, we must take the initiative to entertain desirable thoughts only. (7.16)
(8.16) Thinking is the great business of life.
(7.16) Desirable conditions are secured by entertaining desirable thoughts only.
Directing our attention toward desirable thoughts is our greatest priority in life. It is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman. (6.7)
(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.
(8.15) We may take our fate out of the hands of chance by constantly recognizing the conditions we desire to see manifest in life.
Love is emerging consciousness. Natures program of evolution is an expression os the law of love. Becoming conscious of these patterns and adjusting our choices and thoughts in a harmonious resonance with these patterns, is how we take our fate out of the hands of chance. This is the goal of mysticism, tantra, alchemy, and many other forms of historical biohacking.
The law of attraction is cause and effect.
(8.14) Spiritual power depends upon use; use determines its existence.
(7.14) The law of attraction is the principle by which though manifests itself in form.
Spiritual power is our ability to (re)direct attention.
Thought is the cause; form is the effect.
(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with the patterns of nature.
(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.
We become aware of patterns by becoming observers. When the mind “splits” into the dual roles of the observer and the observed, we become aware of our ability to redirect the attention (energy) within ruminating mind toward specific goals/desires.
