(3.2) The Sympathetic System of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.
(6.2) These effects can be changed by changing the mechanism to which the electricity is attached.
(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent of all right action.
(4.12) Knowledge of our power, courage to dare, and the faith to do so are necessary steps to materialize the ideal.
(7.12) Difficult and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.
(2.22) We may influence other forms of intelligence by a recognition of self as an individualization of the Universal.
(5.22) The source of all power in Universal Mind, from which all things proceed and which is one and indivisible.
(8.22) The real “I” is spiritual and can, therefore, never be less than perfect.
The subconscious mind is driven by feeling/sensation. This is intimately linked with the story we tell ourselves. By changing the story we tell ourselves, we can change how we feel. This requires constructive thinking. The effort this requires is the obstacle. Our resistance to make the effort is the difficulty. Our thought influences how we behave and, thus, how others respond or react to us. In this way, we influence others. All thought is empowered by creative potential. There is only one source of creative potential, which makes it Universal. Our ability to access this creative potential is what makes us spiritual.
(8.29) Constructive thinking is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view.
(5.29) This law is brought into operation by our predominant mental attitude.
(2.29) We give thought.
(7.29) A conscious 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.
(4.29) It is impossible for the mind to receive an entirely new idea without a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.
(1.29) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.
(6.9) Concentration is so important because it allows us to control our thoughts and since every thought is a cause, every condition is an effect. Therefore, if we control the cause, we control the cause, we control the effect.
(3.9) To awake the solar plexus mentally state what is wanted.
Constructive thinking is unobstructed. Our predominant mental attitude filters our experience. When we give attention toward others, we add to the story they tell themselves. “Truth” is he story we tell ourselves because this story determines how we feel, thus, truth is subjective NOT universal. We must reinforce constructive thinking that supports our ideal if we wish to “reprogram” our attitude. Concentration allows us to do this more effectively. Thought is, then, carried by the sympathetic system of nerves to the solar plexus, which–essentially–creates the vibration upon which other people react or respond to us (such as butterflies, anxiety, excitement, etc.)
