The First Mountain (b)

(4.1) Thought is spiritual energy.

Literally, thought is spiritual energy because thought links physical form (the individual) with the primordial universe-the realm of existence from which creative potential resides. The Primordial (3) universe  is the third “layer” of creation, following the “nothingness’ of the TAO (2), and Ain Soph–original divine consciousness/Brahma (1).

(4.2) Thought is carried by the law of vibration.

Just like sound travels by waves, so does thought. In this context, the movement of waves can be said to vibrate.

(4.3) Thought is given vitality by love.

Thought is empowered by love. Love is, perhaps, best described as unselfish directed attention that regards the whole as greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, there is a “big picture” that we must account for, in which we are participants not lead actors.

(4.4) Thought takes form by the law of growth.

Cause produces effect which, in turn, produces cause. This is the law of growth.

(4.5) The secret of thoughts creative power is spiritual activity.

Spiritual activity is the action and interaction between the individual and the Universal; the finite and the infinite. (1.6, 2.4)

(4.6) We may acquire the faith, courage, and enthusiasm that results in achievement by a recognition of our spiritual nature.

A recognition of our spiritual nature is, essentially, an applied recognition that thoughts are the cause and our perception of conditions is the effect.

(4.7) The secret of power is service.

We may be of service to others, although our primary goal should be of service to Natural Law or the laws of nature, which is phenomena consistently demonstrated in nature, like Cause & Effect, the Law of Growth, The Law of Love

(4.8) We get what we give.

We “give” thought by directing our attention to others. Keep in mind, what we “get/receive” in return from anothers directed attention is their response or reaction to our intention rather than our (selfish) desire.

(4.9) The silence is a physical stillness.

The silence is, literally, staying still.

(4.10) The silence is the first step towards self control; self mastery.

Developing the discipline of silence allows us to begin to establish physical self control which leads to mental control, ie: the ability to silence internal dialogues that do not support our ideal state.
