(6.1) Some of the effects produced by electricity are heat, light, power, music.
(5.11) Observe individual facts carefully, patiently, and accurately, with all the instruments and resources at your command, before venturing to make a statement of natural law.
(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.
Making a statement of natural law refers to speaking our “truth.” Truth–in this context–is what we believe. Our beliefs determine how we frame conditions. Thus, we should be very cautious to speak of conditions that reinforce fear, discord, and other qualities of behavior that do not support our ideal state.
Power is our ability to change conditions. If we do not utilize this power, then we will discover less motivation to use it until the point where we really need it, which is usually long after the mental “muscle” required is no longer in “shape.”
(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think. Thus, our quality of thought determines the conditions we meet in life.
(5.20) Our best interest will be conserved by a recognition of the fact that a knowledge of the creative power of thought puts us in touch with infinite power.
(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thought. This is allowing us to control conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.
Our predominant mental attitude (PMA) determines what we think. What we think determines what we do. How we perceive the conditions generated by what we do reinforces our predominant mental attitude. This is a cycle.
Infinite power is the principle of cause & effect. The creative power of thought is the cause.
Constructive thought utilizes the principle of cause and effect. Rather than trying to change effects, we focus our energy on changing the cause, and the effect takes care of itself.
