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

(6.3) The conditions we meet in life are a result of the action and interaction of the individual upon the Universal.

(1.13) Knowledge of the truth is the underlying condition necessary for every business transaction and social relation.

(4.13) A practical working knowledge of cause and effect is secured through an understanding of natural law.

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

(5.23) Power is manifested through the individual. Each individual is a channel whereby power is differentiated in form.

(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth is the method for destroying all forms of fear.

The solar plexus generates energy from food (3.30) that is burned up in the belly. This energy allows us to “transmit” thought to the unlimited creative potential of the Universal, which creates conditions we meet in life as a result of our thoughts, which act as suggestions/desires.  The object of our thought is what we believe, which makes it truth. These thoughts are the cause while conditions are effects. This is the governing principle of nature (Natural Law). We can eliminate suffering by adjusting ourselves to this principle. This knowledge is power when applied. Confidence in this principle results in the destruction of fear.

(8.28) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into manifestation for the benefit of ourselves and others.

(5.28) Experience comes to us through the law of attraction.

(2.28) The law of growth depends upon reciprocal action. The individual is complete at all times and this makes it possible to receive only as we give.

(7.18) We may overcome all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord of every kind by substituting principle in place of error.

(4.18) A solution to our problem seems difficult if we are uninformed or inexperienced.

(1.18) The secret to the solution of every problem is to apply spiritual truth.

(6.8) Concentration may be acquired by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.

(3.8) Our predominant mental attitude determines conditions we meet in life.

We experience what we believe exists. Thought reinforces perception and perception determines how we respond or react to conditions, which–in turn–creates new conditions. We receive what we give our attention to. Thus, we can overcome unwanted conditions by directing our attention to conditions we desire to experience. This is spiritual truth. Utilizing this knowledge is the solution to all our problems. Developing concentration allows us to direct our attention with greater ease, which will reinforce our desired predominant mental attitude.

(3.1) The Cerebral Spinal System of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.

(6.1) Some of the effects that can be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.

(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition of all well being.

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

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we desire for our growth from each experience.

(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.

(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.

(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.

Our senses send information to the brain via the Cerebral Spinal System. In the same way that wires carry messages from devises to the source of electricity. We feel how we act. A scientific understanding is information we have gained through observation. “Appropriate information we have learned” in applying the knowledge we have gained. Our degree of intelligence is is measured by our conscious state. Awareness of knowledge brings the unseen into view. A knowledge of the truth is our awareness of how our thoughts are creating our perceptions of reality, upon which we make decisions that will lead to what conditions next present themselves.

(8.30) The result of an understanding of constructive thinking is a recognition that “god” is a symbol of Universal Mind, which really and truly does live within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding. 

(5.21) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of dive election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual; the democracy of humanity.

(2.30) We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think.

(7.20) Insight allows us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true.

(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects are necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thinking. This is allowing us to direct conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.

(3.10) The Universal is the creative principle of the universe.

God” is a mythological representation of each individuals ability to direct their attention toward manifesting ideal conditions. The thoughts of others are like clay that are molded by the story we tell ourselves about what they are thinking. Our story determines how we feel. Applying this information means taking responsibility for your thoughts. Concentration is the ability to direct attention. This generates an omnipotent power because thought is our connection to unlimited creative potential; the creative principle of the Universe. Directing our attention toward manifesting our ideal state is constructive thinking.

 

 

 

The Third Mountain (e)

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience.

Discovering what we can learn from each experience allows us to “let go” of unpleasant emotions.

(7.12) Difficulty and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.

Difficulty and obstacle provide the necessary resistance to make “training” possible. Just as if you were working out, difficulty and resistance allow us to develop “muscle.”

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.

Suffering is the result of trying to resist or deny difficulty and obstacle.

(7.14) The law of attraction is the principle by which thought manifests in form.

The law of attraction is cause & effect.

(7.15) The law of love–which is the creative principle of the universe–adds vitality to thought while the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth.

The law of love  is a recognition that each individual is an outlet of the very same creative potential that can empower our desires.

(7.16) Desirable conditions are the result of entertaining desirable thoughts only.

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

Directed attention will manifest in our perception of conditions. Perception, then, influences our attitude. Attitude determines how we will react or respond to conditions. Our reaction or response will create new conditions.

(7.18) We may eliminate all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

The principle referred to is an applied understanding of cause and effect

(7.19) 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.

The “truth” is that whatever we direct our attention toward, we will come to “believe.”

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself which is–by no means–true.

We apply the knowledge we have gained by taking responsibility for our thoughts.

 

The Third Mountain (d)

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

Scientific” refers to observing effects produced by thoughts (cause) and directing our attention to consistently applying this knowledge regardless of the situation we are experiencing.

(4.12) Knowledge of our power, courage to dare, and the faith to do so, are necessary steps to materialize the ideal in the objective world.

Our power” is our ability to direct our attention. “Courage to dare” is refers to decisions we make with anticipation of effects that will be produced by directed attention. “Faith” refers to our confidence in the principle of cause & effect.

(4.13) A practical working knowledge of cause and effect is secured by an understanding of natural law.

“Understanding natural law”  is recognizing that all nature unfolds based on the principle of cause & effect.

(4.14) The effect of an understanding of natural law is a recognition that we can adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles.

When we understand that cause & effect (natural law) is the guiding (divine and unchanging) principle of experience, we can intentionally begin to direct our attention (cause) to produce desired effects.

(4.15) The degree of success we achieve in indicated by the degree in which we realize we can not change the infinite but must cooperate with it.

The infinite is cause & effect, as expressed in by the concepts of polarity and duality, upon which all form and experience depends.

Realize” refers to our willingness to accept responsibility for our thoughts.

(4.6) The law of attraction rests on vibration which–in turn–rests on love. This is the principle which gives thought its dynamic power. Any thought impregnated with love is invincible.

The law of attraction is cause & effect. “Vibration” refers to the resonance created by thought. “Love” is the force that compels us to one another; the recognition that all individuals are expressions of the same unlimited creative potential.

(4.7) It is invincible because it is a natural law. All natural laws are invincible, unchangeable, and act with mathematical certitude–without deviation or variation.

Cause & effect is the only principle which can be relied upon to produce measurable results.

This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is none other. (7.29)

(4.8) A solution to our problem seems difficult if we are uninformed or inexperienced.

Uninformed” refers to ignorance of natural law. “Inexperienced” means we have not applied knowledge we have gained.

(4.9) It is impossible for the mind to receive an entirely new idea if there is not a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.

We learn by repetition.

Each repeated action renders the image more accurate than the former. (7.5)

(4.10) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.

Wisdom is the ability to make choices without the hinderance of internal bias and chatter.

 

TSM criss-cross #1

(2.1) There are two modes of mental activity–conscious and subconscious.

(5.1) About 90% of our mental life is subconscious.

(8.1) The imagination os a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience. The mighty instrument by which every great discoverer or inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

(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.

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

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

(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

The subconscious guides about 90% of our experience. Conscious mind is constructive thought, which includes imagination. Imagination is intentional visualization, whereas ruminating mind is daydreaming. Inductive reasoning–which consists of the observation of patternswhen used intentionally, is also a form of constructive thought. Universal mind is the source of all method of thought, constructive or destructive. Concentration is acquired by consistent directed attention, which is power. To use this power is service of others is the first law of success.

(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If we wish to secure the effect, we must ascertain the cause–the thought which originates or creates it.

(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think. Thus, our quality of thought determines conditions we meet in life.

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

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

(3.20) A recognition of cause and effect has eliminated the elements of caprice and uncertainty in our lives and substituted law, reason, and certitude.

(8.10) Keen analytical observation leads to opulence and harmony.

(5.10) The possession of power depends upon a proper use of the power already in our possession.

(2.10) Thought is creative energy and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

Inductive reasoning allows us to determine the cause of every effect. This leads to success. We are what we think about consistently. Without directed attention, our desire is only a symbol (hope) of success.. A harmonious mental attitude is acquired by understanding and balancing our (biological) drives and (psychological) forces. This allows us to change the cause to produce desired effects. Inductive reasoning develops keen analytical observation. Applied knowledge becomes power. Concentrated thought eventually manifests in form.

The Second Mountain (f)

(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.

We must learn to eliminate the tendency to direct our attention to thought that does not support our ideal state. Thought is like a cloud passing above us. It is not until we direct our attention toward it, that we become possessed by it.

(1.22) Invisible forces are, then, set in motion to bring about the desired result.

By directing our attention toward thought that supports our ideal state, we begin to filter experience through a strainer that eliminates the cause of undesired effects.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the controlling factor in this method of thought.

Spiritual refers to the ability of the individual to intentionally think, in contrast to biological drives and psychological forces. Thought is creative and depends upon an interaction with unlimited creative potential that comes from the Universal.

(1.24) The nature of our desire must be in harmony with natural law.

Natural law is the principle/pattern of cause and effect. Most people fail because they become fixated on the effect. They desire the effect and begin to daydream about how their life will change with the effect. They treat conditions in life as supportive or unsupportive on the effect and completely neglect the cause.

Our desires must BECOME the cause, and the effects will take care of themselves. For example, the cause is practice, the effect is success. We must desire to practice and master whatever it is we are passionate about, and the success will follow.

(1.25) Thought is transmuted into character and character is the magnet that creates the environment of the individual.

Our directed attention creates a vibrational frequency that affects us physically and emotionally. Other people will “tune into” this frequency, whether consciously of subconsciously, and the impression that forms in others perception of our vibrational frequency is what we refer to as character.

(1.26) The control factor of every commercial pursuit is the mental element.

The mental element is the spiritual; our ability to consciously direct our attention, knowing that every thought is a cause and every condition, an effect.

(1.27) Mind is the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring within form.

Mind is the “engine” that facilitates thought.

(1.28) Concentration operates by the development of wisdom, perception, intuition, and sagacity.

Wisdom is applied knowledge leading to sound judgement. Perception is a result of our predominant mental attitude. Intuition is the knowing that comes from within, absent of reason; what we viscerally feelSagacity is discernment.

(1.29) Intuition is superior to reason because it does not depend upon existence or memory and frequently brings about a solution to our problems by methods of which we are in entire ignorance.

Existence (past, present, or imagined future experience) and memory (how we remember past experience) create bias, which can impair our perception and decision making.

(1.30) The symbol is the outward form of the spiritual activity within, therefore, unless we possess the spiritual reality, the form disappears. 

Effects are symbols. They reflect our predominant mental attitude, as shaped by our directed attention.

Symbols are effects. A symbol without integrated knowledge and experience is just a symbol.

The Second Mountain (a)

(2.1) There are two modes of mental activity–conscious and subconscious.

All action is predicated by conscious or subconscious thought.

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

Mastery “happens” when repeated action becomes so habitual, we do not have to consciously think about it anymore. Conversely, we may also be controlled by habitual behaviors that are self-destructive.

(2.3) The value of the subconscious is enormous. It guides us. It warns us. It controls the vital processes and is the seat of memory.

The subconscious controls all the “background” programs of our experience.

(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination. It has the power of reasoning. It is the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious.

The conscious mind navigates the polarities of experience (persona-shadow, ego-self, etc.) Wether is is tossed about or maintains equilibrium depends on the individuals ability to apply knowledge they have gained.

(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.

Conscious mind is like the USB device/drive by which we may “reprogram” the subconscious with our intention.

(2.6) To impress the subconscious, mentally state what is wanted.

We mentally state what is wanted by directing our attention toward visualizing and idealizing (feeling) the conditions we desire to manifest in our experience.

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

The forward movement of the great whole is natures plan to become conscious of itself. We participate in this plan by consciously recognizing that our experience of life is for this same purpose. The more we intentionally bring unconscious patterns and belief systems into conscious awareness, the more we are in harmony with this plan. Introspection, inductive reasoning, and critical thinking are key instruments available to us.

(2.8) Our experience reflects conditions corresponding to our predominant mental attitude.

Our predominant mental attitude is determined by our directed attention; how much time we spend thinking about specific things and what we feel when we think.

(2.9) This is cause & effect.

Our experience is shaped by internal conditions–thoughts and feelings.

(2.10) Thought is creative energy and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

Creative energy is spiritual energy. Thought is, thus, spiritual.

Crossover Week #12 (e)

(7.5) Each repeated action renders the image more accurate than the former.

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

(8.15) We may take our fate out of the hands of chance by consciously realizing the conditions we desire to see manifested in life.

(7.15) The law of love-which is the creative principle of the Universe–adds vitality to thought while the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth.

(7.25) Financiers frequently meet with great success because they do their own thinking.

(8.25) Universal Mind is the totality of all existence.

Rumination in thought and/or action reinforces our perception of conditions. Ignorance is neglecting this principle. By feeling (realizing) the conditions we desire, we can change our perception, which allows us to respond to conditions rather than react to them. Love is expressed by applying compassion and empathy to others. We do our own thinking by separating the observer (intentional thought/response) from the the observed (reactionary thought). Universal Mind allows us to transcend “the observed” (first person experiencer) and “rise above” our reactions to respond with compassion and empathy.

(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. There is nowhere it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is all spirit and life.

(7.26) The great majority remain docile and willing tools of the few because they allow the few to do their thinking for them.

(7.16) Desirable conditions are secured by entertaining desirable thoughts, only.

(8.16) Thinking is the great business of life.

(8.6) Knowledge is a result of mans ability to think.

(7.6) The material for the construction of these mental images is secured by millions of tiny workers-brain cells.

Universal Mind (original divine consciousness) exists within us not somewhere “out there.” Those looking for god/desses “out there” are allowing others to do their thinking for them.  We determine how we feel by the thoughts we entertain. Thinking determines how we perceive experience. Applied learning is knowledge. Thinking happens as a result of brain cells mirroring thoughts in the Universal (primordial). 

 

 

 

 

Crossover Week #12 (b)

(7.2) By holding an image or picture in mind, we gradually–but surely–draw the thing nearer to us.

(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal, out of which your future will emerge.

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

(7.12) Difficulty and obstacle are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.

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

(8.22) We are spiritual beings and spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.

Visualization leads to manifestation, although how this manifests may not be in the way we visualize it, so it’s best to avoid becoming attached with a how. Bt exercising imagination regularly, we will develop a knowledge of our ideal state. Wealth means many things and may be considered what others value in/from us. Difficulty and obstacle provide us with an opportunity to apply our knowledge of cause & effect to transcend a reaction and create a response. In this way, we become of service to the greater plan of consciousness becoming aware of itself through our experiences and ability to transform reactions into responses. We have this opportunity to co-create, because we are spiritual beings.

(8.29) Constructive thinking is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view.

(7.29) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is none other. That it may be used unconsciously does not alter the situation.

(7.19) We do not have to laboriously shovel the darkness out. All that is required is to turn the light on. This principle applies to every form of negative thought.

(8.19) The source of all harmony is constructive thought.

(8.9) The development of imagination, insight, perception and sagacity are the result of keen analytical observation.

(7.9) Many fail to secure harmonious conditions because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. the law is working perfectly–fear is manifesting.

Constructive thinking is absent of uncertainty. Constructive and destructive thought are the factors of cause & effect. By actively choosing constructive thought, destructive thought evaporates. This is the secret of securing harmonious conditions. Keen analytical observation develops the qualities of thought that support Constructive thought. If we direct our attention to thoughts (causes) that do not support our ideal state, we will manifest undesired conditions.

 

 

Crossover Week #12 (a)

(7.1) Visualization is the process of creating mental pictures.

(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which every great discoverer or inventor opens the way from precedent to experience.

(8.11) Wealth depends upon an understanding of the creative nature of thought.

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience.

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.

Visualization (mental pictures) are created using imagination, which is a form of constructive thought. Wealth–all forms of abundance–are effects produced by imagination. Peace and harmony are the result of our ability to assign value (learning) and meaning (purpose) to our experience. This is the essence of every system of metaphysics. Service leads us toward success.

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

(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If we want to secure the effect we must ascertain the cause-the thought or idea–by which the effect is created.

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true!

(8.20) Constructive thinking is an understanding of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to direct it.

(8.10) Keen analytical observation leads to opulence and harmony.

(7.10) The alternative is to concentrate on conditions you desire to see manifested in your life.

 

Constructive thinking allows us to realize the divine (original consciousness) within us. Because success is an effect, we must direct our attention toward creating the cause. When we apply this knowledge, we are transformed. We apply this knowledge by directing spiritual energy. This depends on our keen analytical observation and a willingness to apply our imagination toward manifesting our ideal state.
