1st Key (c)

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

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

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

Our senses are how we “upload” information to objective mind. Ego interprets this sensory information from past experience and current belief systems. This interpretation is what we refer to as truth.

A knowledge that truth is decided by the individual mind is what makes truth subjective. A knowledge that this process is facilitated by thought is what makes truth spiritual.

(1.28) Concentration operates by the development of perception, wisdom, insight, and sagacity.

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

(1.8) Desirable and harmonious conditions are the result of constructive thinking.

Concentration is the byproduct. Perception, wisdom, insight, and sagacity are the ingredients.

When we apply concentration (directed attention) towards truth, we have discovered the solution of every problem.

Constructive thinking supports the emergence of cosmic consciousness and a unity between the individual with this consciousness.

1st Key (b)

(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.

(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent of all constructive action.

(1.22) Invisible forces are then set in motion which inevitably bring about conditions in correspondence with our thought.

Possession–in this context–refers to thoughts that possess us. All thoughts indicate a specific mental state, which may be described, in other contexts, as forces, gods, or demons.

Constructive thinking is the initiative to direct our attention toward visualizing conditions that support our ideal state will lead to engaging in activities that also support our ideal state. As a result, the “invisible forces” within collective consciousness begin to support our ideal state.

The forces of the individual mind are the microcosm. The forces of Universal Mind are the macrocosm.

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

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

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

Intuition is the “voice” of our authentic Self, as distinct from ego. Our authentic Self is the microcosm and shares sympathetic resonance with our Primordial Self (macrocosm).

Spiritual methods consist of the ability to direct our thoughts towards achieving specific goals in harmony with our ideal state.

Destructive thinking is any thought that is entertained that does not support the emergence of our ideal state, which is a state of unity with cosmic consciousness.

 

1st Key (a)

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

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

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

Our experience of conditions is a result of our predominant mental attitude. We are at peace if we think of and treat others as we would like to be treated. By directing the object of of thoughts towards harmony, we create harmony.

(2.30) The symbol is only the outward form of the spiritual reality within. Therefore, unless we possess the spiritual activity, the form disappears.

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

(1.10) All power comes form within–the universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual, on outlet.

Spiritual activity within refers to the nature of our thoughts. Our thoughts are omnipresent because each individual derives their creative potential from the same source, or which each individual is an outlet.

 

 

Week 17

Consistently directing our attention to the manifestation of our ideal state allows us to identify with the feeling necessary to achieve this state. In the process, this method will destroy all forms of fear.

Psychological forces are expressions of nature. They react or respond to a cause. The cause is our thought. How we think not only affects us, it affects others because we are all outlets of the same power source. We give thought. We receive thought

“Spiritual truth” is integrity–possessing/possessed by thoughts and actions that correspond with our desire (a desire in harmony with our ideal state, which is a state of unity with Cosmic Consciousness).

Our desire must support the right of life to thrive

Our rate of vibration determines how others feel in our presence and comes through in the way we treat others and ourselves

In every interaction, to find success there must be harmony between our thoughts and desires

Mind- the engine of thought, is responsible for producing the thoughts that are build experience

Concentration is the greatest personal achievement that can be acquired.

As we redirect our attention toward thoughts that support our ideal state, we will become more aware of the distinct voice of  intuition. This is the voice of our authentic Self guiding us forward in the individuation process.

Gods, devils, and deities are symbols of biological drives and cognitive forces. If we lose track of the meaning of these symbols, then the power contained within the symbols may not be accessed.

Crossover Week #8 (e)

(8.6) Knowledge is a result of our ability to think.

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

Thinking is comparing and contrasting information. what we learn from this process is knowledge.  We may apply or disregard this information.

Mental images = visualization.

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

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

The more we direct our attention to a specific a mental image, the more it will posses us.

With this knowledge, you are no longer ignorant. Suffering is the result of disregarding knowledge we have gained.

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of the knowledge we have learned. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is -by no means, true.

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation, while the imagination is a form of constructive thought–which precedes all constructive action.

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

Dissipation is the scattering of energy.

(8.29) Constructive thought is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view. 

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

(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.

Mental exercise may include any activities that provide a consistent measurement of our ability to concentrate for extended periods of time. For example, the effort it takes you to recall things you’ve memorized can vary depending on how scattered your mind is. It may take you 30 min=s to recite what, at other times, takes 5 minutes.

The greater our ability to concentrate, the greater our ability to visualize mental pictures. And we know that “seeing” creates “feeling,” and feeling” creates “being.” (7.4)

(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal, out of which our future will emerge.

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

Concentrating–directing our attention–toward a harmonious/holistic object of thought is our ideal state. Repetition crystalizes this image while the feeling produced by this image reinforces our attitude toward conditions and opportunities.

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

(8.1) The imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer or inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

Imagination is the fuel that empowers visualization. 

Crossover Week #8 (d)

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

(8.12) The true value of wealth is its exchange value.

Learning is the process of bringing the unconscious (unknown) into consciousness (known). Difficulty and obstacle provide us with the motivation and incentive to learn.

Wealth allows us to negotiate the terms of wish fulfillment.

(8.11) Wealth depends upon an understanding of the creative nature of thought.

(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 creative nature of thought is a force which attracts what we value (which may or may not include money).

Our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth form each experience and refers to  our willingness to learn and apply what we have learned from each experience

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

(8.10) The result of keen analytical observation is opulence and harmony.

Keen analytical observation allows us to observe our habits and adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles (4.25) which support the emergence of cosmic consciousness. We “adjust ourselves” by constructive thinking; concentrating on conditions we desire to see manifested in our lives. 

(8.9) The development of imagination, insight, perception, and sagacity, result in keen analytical observation.

(7.9) Many fail to secure harmonious conditions because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. The law of attraction is working perfectly-fear is manifesting.

Keen analytical observation raises our awareness and dissolve the qualities that lead to fear.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and firm demand are necessary to consciously participate with the ongoing force of cause and effect.

(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.

(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth concerning the conditions you desire to see manifested in life is the method for destroying all forms of fear. 

(1.24) The nature of our desire must be in harmony with natural law. Natural law is symbiotic expression of the emergence of cosmic consciousness becoming aware of itself. 

(8.7) Mind produces the very real moving force by which we attract the people and circumstances that correspond to our object of thought. Taking initiative to direct our thoughts is, therefore, necessary for the achievement of our plans.

(7.7) The necessary condition for the materialization of the ideal is an understanding and application of the knowledge that every thought is a cause and every condition, an effect. The law of attraction is a reoccurring force of nature and psyche, by which all conditions and experiences are brought about.

Cause and effect = the law of attraction.

Every thought is a cause. Every condition is an effect. (1.7)

 

 

Crossover Week #8 (c)

(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.

Crossover Week #8 (b)

(8.24) The Universal Mind–in which we live and move and have our being–is one and indivisible. This makes it just as possible to help others as it is to help ourselves.

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

We have the potential to help others by directing our attention (giving/serving) toward their well being. This is referred to as “blessing.”

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth concerning the conditions you desire to see manifested in life is the method for destroying all forms of fear.

Dissolution–in this context–is the erosion of a thought. Beneficial thought is the dissolution of fear. Thus, selfish thought–inevitably–leads to fear.

(8.22) The real “I” is spiritual and consequently creative and can, therefore, never be less than perfect.

(7.22) We can be of the most service by keeping an open mind. Be interested in the race not the goal; the pursuit not the possession.

As a result of our spiritual nature, we must keep an open mind in the face of adversity and realize that difficulty and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth (7.12). Suffering, though, is optional. (7.13)

By keeping our thoughts directed toward our ideal state, we can transcend the suffering of mind (5.27) and by seeking the cause of adversity (the effect), we are able to avoid repeating the cyclical actions that led to adversity.

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.

Truth is observable and measurable phenomena.  These are universally agreed upon concepts–like gravity, mathematics, and cause & effect. They are beyond dispute, regardless of culture or creed. These are not “absolute” truths because we can not be absolutely certain of anything. Science (observation) is constantly revising its understanding of nature (the observed).

In error, we define “truth” through the filter of our respective belief systems. Belief systems are contingent upon “hit or miss absolutes.”  These are not universally accepted nor empirically measurable, yet within specific cultural and sociological groups, they are regarded as infallible truths. Dogma and religion fit into this category.

Service is directed attention may be accompanied by action.

(8.20) Constructive thinking is a recognition of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to control it.

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true.

We recognize our ability to control spiritual energy by taking the initiative to consistently direct our attention toward thoughts that support our ideal state.

Initiative is making application of knowledge we have gained.  The process of taking initiative results in the integration of knowledge to reorganize our belief systems.

Reorganizing our believe systems is a necessary process of individuation (bringing the unconscious into consciousness). This is a process that continues throughout our life because consciousness is in a constant state of evolving.

(7.19) A knowledge 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.

(8.19) The source of all harmony is constructive thinking.

Cause & effect is as reliable as gravity. This makes this principle of natural law an undisputed truth, observable by anyone, anywhere. When we choose to direct our thoughts toward our ideal state, we will begin feeling (experiencing emotion) that corresponds to our thoughts. the result is that our perception and attitude will change, opening us up to give (thought) and receive (thought) that will perpetuate the ‘feeling’ required to realize a manifestation of our ideal state.

Crossover Week #8 (a)

(8.30) The result of constructive thought is you will come to know “God” as Universal Mind/Cosmic Consciousness which–really and truly–lives within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficiently applied understanding.

(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If you want to secure the effect, you must assertion the cause-the thought or idea–by which the effect is created.

Created form is an effect. Nature is the default principle of creation. Individuals may “reprogram” the default settings of their own nature. This is the process by which consciousness is emerging in individuals.

(7.29) A 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.

(8.29) Constructive thought is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view.

Constructive thought is process of “turning the light on.”

(8.28) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring into manifestation that which benefits ourselves and others.

(7.28) We may eliminate all fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

We substitute principle in place of error by replacing destructive thought with constructive thought.

(7.27) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing, conditions of lack, limitation, disease, poverty, and discord of every kind. This mental photography or erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

(8.27) The nature of Universal Mind is spiritual and consequently creative It seeks to express itself in form.

Universal Mind will create form under the direction of the principle of natures. Thought is an internal manifestation of this creative force, and will determine our perception.

(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. It exists everywhere. There is nowhere it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is the world within. It is all spirit and life.

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

Each individual has the ability to think. This is their opportunity to access the ultimate source of creative potential.  If they give this power to others, they will feel powerless.

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

(8.25) Universal  Mind is the totality of all existence.

Those who think for themselves–which includes the ability to  and arrest their attention from ruminating mind–may access to unlimited creative power.

 

 

 

8.6-1

(8.6) Knowledge is a result of mans ability to think.

Thinking is the result of a comparing and/or contrasting two or more concepts and/or ideas. The result is knowledge. The value of this knowledge is subjective, and is unique to the evolving belief systems and perspectives that create our experience or conditions we encounter.

…various combinations

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

Ignorance is the absence of knowledge; often, a result of a choice not to think.

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action.

Dissipation is squandering of energy and/or resources.

Constructive thought is a recognition of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to control it. (8.20)

Constructive thought is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view. (8.29)

(8.3) The imagination may be cultivated by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.

The maintenance of health-brain or body-is contingent upon consistent exercise. Nourishment comes from food.

Mental exercise cuts through the fog that is produced by the abuse of biological drives for the sake of pleasure (ie. gluttony, lust). Mental exercise may include memory work or puzzles which indicate to the active observer the degree in which they are able to concentrate on the task.

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 allows the individual to think… (3.30)

(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal, from which your future will emerge.

The “ideal” is the most consistent object of our directed attention. Wether we logically agree that this “ideal” is the most harmonious, desired, future, the subconscious does not discriminate and will work toward creating conditions that correspond to the most consistent object of our directed attention.

(2.6) To impress the subconscious, mentally state what is wanted.

(1.22) Invisible forces are then set in motion which irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence wit your thought.

(7.29) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. there is none other. That it may be used unconsciously does not alter the situation.

(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer and inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

Imagination sets new precedents by informing the subconscious of our revised desires.

It is important to remember that the subconscious makes no distinction with regards to the quality of our directed attention (imagination). This is the job of the conscious mind.

(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.
