The Second Mountain (e)

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

Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential. It is “universal” because each individual can access this creative potential, which makes it omnipresent.

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

Universal Energy is the “raw material” of potential, in the same way that electricity is the raw material of the effects it can produce.

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

All thought is creative because thought originates within this pool of creative potential we call Universal Mind.

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

Mind in motion is referred to as rumination. Rumination allows us to learn. It is destructive when our attention is directed toward destructive thought.

(6.15) The individual is the means by which the Universal creates various combinations that result in the formation of phenomena.

The Universal creates various combinations (conditions we encounter) as a result of the quality of an individuals directed attention.

(6.16) The power of the individual to think is their ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into existence.

Directed attention (thought) alters our perception of conditions and opportunities, thus, we are more inclined to respond or react to these conditions and opportunities based on our predominant mental attitude, which is the result of our most repetitious thoughts.

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

All form has come into being as a result of thought. All form is constructed by quarks, which form electrons.

(6.18) All things have their origin in mind.

The origin of all things begins within the mind, where the interaction between the individual and the Universal–thought–produces cause & effect.  All thoughts are causes, all perceptions are effects.

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

When we change the object of our directed attention, our perception of conditions changes, and as a result, we will respond or react differently, which creates a change in the trajectory of conditions and our experience of them.

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

A harmonious mental attitude is the result of transcending the polarity of extremes (the urge to label experience as “good” or “bad”) and discovering a greater option is available to us when we live within the Mandorla, or, the place of balance and moderation created when extremes begin to overlap, as demonstrated by the “football” shape created when two circles/moons merge.
