Manipura (b)

(3.2) The sympathetic system of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.

(3.1) The cerebral-spinal system of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.

Nerves are the information highways of the body.

(2.11) Wealth is the offspring of power.

Power produces abundance.

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with the object of our thought that we’re conscious of nothing else.

Mind is like a drinking bowl. If you are unsatisfied with the contents, you must replace them with your preference. This is more satisfactory if you empty the previous contents rather than add something new to what already occupies the bowl.

(1.30) The symbol is only the outward form of the spiritual activity within. Unless we possess the spiritual activity, the form disappears.

Spiritual activity is thought. Unless our thought supports the symbol (of our ideal) than “form” is unable to manifest.

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe.

Humans are spiritual because of our ability to think.

(3.10) The Universal is the life principle of every atom in existence.

The Universal is unlimited creative potential.

(1.30) The result of constructive thinking is you will come to know “the All Father” as Universal Mind, which really and truly does live within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated  by anyone with sufficient understanding.

“The All Father” may be understood as the leading deity of every religious system.

The conscious mind receives its governing tendencies from heredity, which means it is the result of all past generations. (5.4)

(1.14) If we know the truth we can readily predict the outcome of every action based on a true premise .

A true premise is what we and/or others believe.

(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.

Truth, in this context, is objective, and is determined by our thoughts.

(2.7) If our desires are in harmony with the great whole, forces will be set in motion to bring about the desired result.

Forward movement” is the effects created by a cause; the consequences of action.

(7.27) Concentrating on sorrow and loss brings sorrow and loss.

Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal (creative potential) and bring it into existence. (1.6)

We may eliminate imperfect conditions by becoming conscious of our unity with the source of all power. (6.26)

Svadhisthana (c)

(8.12) The true value of wealth is its exchange value.

Wealth is, of itself, no value. It’s value comes form the significance we place on it in relation to its exchange value.

(7.22) We may be of the most service by keeping an open mind. Be interested in the race not the goal; the pursuit not the possession.

Knowledge is a constant process of adjusting ourselves to new information. This is the significance of keeping an open mind. Without an open mind, we close ourselves off from receiving and applying new information.

(2.2) Ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which we cease to depend upon the conscious mind.

Mastery is the result of making desired behavior subconscious. This is accomplished through repetitive behavior that supports our ideal.

(1.12) Right thinking is the condition precedent for all right action.

Every thought is a cause. Our perception of conditions is the effect. (1.7)

(8.20) Constructive thinking is a recognition of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to control it.

Our perception of conditions are the effect of thoughts, which are the cause

(1.4) We relate to the Universal Mind by the subconscious mind. The Solar Plexus is the organ of this mind.

Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe.

The subconscious receives its governing tendencies from heredity.  (5.4) These “governing tendencies” are the default attitudes that determine our behaviors unless the conscious mind actively seeks to “reprogram” these defaults.

The Solar Plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating. (3.3) 

(1.7) The result of the interaction between the individual and the Universal is cause & effect. Every thought is a cause. Every perception is an effect.

We determine our perception by our predominant mental attitude; the result of the majority of our thoughts.

(6.27) Many fail because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. The law is working perfectly. Fear is manifesting.

What we direct our attention to becomes our perception and what we perceive becomes our experience.

(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, disharmony and discord of every kind. This mental photography of erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction, inevitably, crystallizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sew is scientifically intact.

Cause & effect is a scientific principle because we can observe effects corresponding with thoughts.

(8.7) Mind is the very real moving force by which we attract the people and circumstances necessary for the completion of our plans.

If we direct our attention toward our goals, invisible forces are set in motion to bring about the desired results. (1.22)
