5th Key (a)

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

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

(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world. It is brought forth into tangible expression.

The subconscious is the default program of our experience. What we consciously observe becomes subconscious belief when we speak the contents of our thoughts. Our awareness of (the creative) power (of thought) is integrated when what we think changes our behavior, for good or ill.

(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.

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

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

The concept of “divine election” has been used to justify the arbitrary nature of power bestowed upon the wealthy and their heirs. Power is not arbitrary, though. Each individual is an outlet of creative power. If we apply the knowledge we have gained, we gain more knowledge/power.
