Our Power

(4.25) Constructive thinking is the ability to adjust our thought process the will of the Universal; to cooperate with Natural Law.

The Universal is unlimited creative potential. It is cosmological. It is Brahma. It is cosmic consciousness.

The Will of the Universal is love. Love is one of three dimensions of cosmic consciousness.

Spirit arises out of the awareness of cosmic consciousness. Spirit, in turn, makes it possible for the individual to communicate with the Universal. Awareness is one of three dimensions of cosmic consciousness.

Nature is an expression of the Universal manifested in physical form.

The Spiritual Nature of Truth

(5.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved through a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.

What we believe will determine what we achieve.

Purpose is synonymous with meaning. One of the quickest ways to transcend being possessed by conditions we face in life is to find purpose within the condition. We locate this purpose by creating it. We avoid suffering by creating purpose in the midst of difficulty and obstacle. Are you refusing to give up what you not longer need at the expense of what you do? Recognize the opportunity change offers to grow into the person you aspire to be. Reaching our ideal state is contingent upon transformation, and we can avoid suffering by embracing this process.

Scientific understanding is based on observation. Facts are based on consistent, measurable, observations.

(3.11) Inductive reasoning is a process of the objective mind in which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all.

Spiritual” refers to the interaction between the individual and creative potential. This interaction happens as a result of thought.

We must differentiate between truth and facts.

Truth,” is what we believe. It is subjective, based on an individuals experience.

(1.7) The nature of truth is spiritual. Therefore, a knowledge of the truth is necessary for every business transaction and social relation. (1.3) Honesty is a knowledge of what another believes; their truth. Our personal truth is our belief.

Inductive Reasoning

(3.11) Inductive reasoning is a process of the objective mind in which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all.

The “common factor that gives rise to them all” can be clearly and consistently demonstrated. (8.30) Consider gravity an example, as well at the necessity of breath for life.

Resistance to Inductive Reasoning usually indicates an “absolute truth” script, wherein the individual avoids taking responsibility as a result of a belief system that reinforces their inability of dealing with anything that infringes upon their comfort.

Introspection is a result of existential dilemmas; ongoing questions that have no definitive objective answer beyond subjective experience or faith. “What is my purpose?” “Is their a God?” “What is the meaning of life?” “What happens after I die?”

No one is disputing gravity or the necessity of breath to sustain human life, nor is faith required to believe in these claims, which is why we they are referred to as facts. They can be consistently demonstrated.

“Tyrannical prejudice” is an expression of someone clutching so fiercely to their “absolute truth” script that they are trying to pass off their subjective experience as fact, despite the inability of their claim to be consistently demonstrated. This is, by no means, limited to religion, and extends into any instance in which an individual feels it is appropriate to use fear to capture the attention of others.
