Sahasrara (c)

(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise; it must receive nourishment or it can not survive.

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

(6.23) A conscious recognition of our perfection–first mentally and then emotionally–results in a manifestation of our perfection.

(1.3) We relate to the objective world by the objective mind. The brain is the organ of this mind.

Suffering may be avoided by a recognition that all thoughts are causes and perception is the effect.

Emotions are an expression of our thoughts.

Imagination is a method of directing our attention. It develops as we use it.

The brain processes information gathered by the senses in the physical world while the solar plexus is the conduit between the physical world and unlimited creative potential.

(1.8) Desirable and harmonious conditions are obtained by constructive thinking.

(6.28) For the first time in the worlds history, mankind’s highest reasoning faculty can be satisfied by demonstrable truth–which is fast flooding the world.

(7.18) We may overcome all fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for it’s fulfillment.

Constructive thinking is any thought that supports the development of ideal conditions we desire to experience.

Demonstrable truth consist of effects that can be consistently observed.

If we want to secure desirable conditions we must modify the cause of undesirable effects. This is the principle of cause & effect.

Concentration allows us to secure a mental picture of our ideal.

Bindu (d)

(7.4) “Seeing” creates “feeling.” “Feeling” creates “being.” First the mental, then the emotional, then unlimited possibilities of achievement.

(6.14) This principle is founded on reason and experience.

(5.24) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and what we think is produced or created in the objective world.

“Seeing” is mental pictures.

The Universal is unlimited creative potential.

(5.27) Universal mind is the basic fact of all existence.

(6.17) We may account for strange and unusual phenomena by the creative power of thought.

(7.7) The necessary condition for the materialization of the ideal in the objective world is the law of attraction (cause & effect); the natural law by which all conditions and experiences are brought about.

Universal Mind is the collective consciousness.

Thought determines our perception of conditions . Ruminating mind is constantly attempting to explain conditions based on information already available to it.

Every thought is a cause and our perception of every condition is an effect. Our perception–in turn–determines choices we make that create new conditions.

 

 

Vishuddha (d)

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

(4.14) The result of understanding patterns within nature is a recognition that we can adjust ourselves to these divine and unchanging principles.

(3.24) We are related to this creative principle by our ability to think.

In addition to the behavioral patterns associated with DNA, conscious mind learns through observation and experience. Thus, we develop patterns of behavior  from our parents, who learned them from their parents.

Nature is a template of experience.

Universal Mind is the creative principle of every atom in existence. (1.5)

(3.27) The rate of vibration may be changed by mental action.

(4.17) Any thought impregnated with love is invincible because it is natures pattern. It is invincible, unchangeable, and acts with mathematical exactitude-without deviation or variation.

(5.7) We compose and construct our mental home by the thoughts we entertain.

Thought is carried by vibration. (4.2) It may be changed by changing what we are thinking about.

Love is the cultivation of life, and the patterns by which this is carried out can be observed and applied to out thought process.

Our mental home is our predominant mental attitude.

 

Anahata (d)

(4.4) Thought is carried by vibration.

(3.14)  The formula for the unerring solution to every problem is to believe our desires have already been full-filled; their accomplishment will soon follow.

(2.24) The Universal creates form by means of the individual.

Thought is “transmitted” between individuals by waves of vibration.

Belief is confidence in truth. Truth–in this context–is the story we tell ourselves (not to be confused with an “absolute.”)

Creative potential requires thought to give it form.

(2.27) Love is brought into effect by vibration.

(3.17) This belief is scientifically intact because it is a principle found in al of nature.

(4.7) The secret of power is service.

Love is demonstrated by action, which originates with thought, hence, vibration–as the “carrier” of thought–brings love into effect.

Scientifically intact,” in this context, is an “absolute,” demonstrated by its consistency as a pattern throughout nature.

Service is an expression of love.

Manipura (c)

(3.23) Universal Mind–the eternal energy from which all things proceed–is the creative principle of the spiritual, mental, and physical world.

(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guide, and determine action.

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

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

(2.13) A knowledge of cause & effect allows us to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.

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

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

(1.13) A knowledge of the truth is the underlying condition necessary is every business transaction or social relation.

(1.3) We relate to the objective world by the objective mind. The brain is the organ of this mind.

The creative principle/power of the universe/The Universal–what we call Natural Law–is the “breath of life” in the sense that this is the Brahma energy that brings all life into existence and desires life to thrive. Humans provide a vehicle for consciousness to experience itself.  We direct this experience by expressing need, want, and desire. The solar plexus is the “transmitter” that sends our expression to the Universal. In this way, our thoughts become the cause. Thought may be conscious (intentional) or subconscious (habitual).  Spiritual truth is belief (truth) that originates from thought. “Spiritual” describes the polarity between thought and belief, as well as between the individual and Universal. We must have knowledge of how our thoughts produce what we believe, and hence, what we feel. If actions and words do not aline, it is because there is a conflict between thought and belief.

We relate to the world of objects through our senses, which informs the brain who, in turn, relays this information to the sub/conscious.

(1.8)  Harmonious and desirable conditions are secured by constructive thinking.

(1.18) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.

(1.28) 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.

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

(2.18) Many fail because they do not understand this law. There is no polarity. They have not found the circuit.

(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.

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

(3.18) “Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.”

(3.28) Mental action depends upon polarity–action and interaction between the individual and the Universal.

Constructive thinking is directed attention that supports our ideal state. Spiritual Methods are always available as long as the individual is capable of directing their attention. Intuition is the “knowing” that comes from the The Universal.  Our Predominant Mental Attitude is the filter by which we filter experience and give it meaning. Faith means belief. Polarity rules nature.

 

The Third Mountain (g)

(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world.

Power is an awareness that our directed attention is a cause that will produce an effect.

(5.22) The source of all power is Universal Mind, from which all things proceed, which is one and indivisible.

Our thought is “charged” by the unlimited creative power of the Universal.

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

Each individual who can think is a channel of this unlimited creative potential, which is why we must take responsibility for directing our attention.

(5.24) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring our desires into manifestation.

Thought is the connecting link between the Individual and the Universal. (2.25)

(5.25) The result is nothing short of marvelous. It opens unprecedented and limitless opportunity.

Unlimited creative potential of the Universal becomes unlimited creative opportunities available to the individual who learns to direct their attention.

(5.26) We may eliminate imperfect conditions by a recognition of our unity with the source of all power.

The source of all power is cause and effect, as demonstrated by an individuals to think.

(5.27) The Master Mind thinks big thoughts. They hold ideas big enough to counteract or destroy all petty and annoying obstacles.

By securing goals (thoughts) bigger than our immediate goal, our immediate goal becomes easier.

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

Experience is an effect. Thought is the cause that creates what our experience feels like.

(5.29) This principal is brought into operation by our predominant mental attitude.

Our predominant mental attitude is the filter by which we feel experience.

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

The “old regime” saw humans as, essentially, helpless to the whims of nature or gods. The”new regime” recognizes that an individuals perception will shape their experience, regardless of the conditions.

 

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.

 

The Third Mountain (c)

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

Well-being is peace of mind. Well-doing refers to how we treat others and speak of them.

(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent to all constructive action.

What we do (action) is directed by what we think. This is a cyclical motion.

(1.13) A knowledge of the truth is the underlying condition necessary to all constructive action.

Truth” in this context, is the story we tell ourselves. A “knowledge of the truth” is, thus, an awareness of how the story we tell ourselves will influence our behavior. Constructive action is behavior that supports our ideal state (purpose).

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

An “ability to predict the results” refers to a knowledge of how our thoughts will produce desired effects. A true premise is an intentional use of directed attention (thought).

(1.15) If the premise is false we are unable to anticipate the results that may ensue.

False” refers to thought that does not support our ideal state, which leads to conflict between our desire and our perception of conditions, which influences how we respond or react, which–in turn–creates new conditions.

(1.16) We may know the truth by a recognition of the fact that truth is the vital principle of the universe.

Vital principle of the Universe” refers to a recognition that all form begins the interaction between thought and unlimited creative potential.

(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.

Spiritual” is a word that describes the interaction between the individual and the Universal.

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

We apply spiritual truth by ensuring our thoughts support our ideal state, which is, necessarily, the solution to every problem.

(1.19) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.

Spiritual methods refers to strategies that allow us to direct our attention to support our ideal state. They are always available in-as-much as we are able to consciously think.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipresence of spiritual truth and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

“Omnipresence of spiritual truth” refers to the fact that every individual has the ability to think. A “desire to be a recipient” refers to our intention. “Beneficial,” in this context, is unselfish.

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

(5.3) Few understand or appreciate that subconsciously mind can be consciously directed.

(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise. It must receive nourishment or it can not survive.

(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guides, and determines action.

(6.13) The creative power of thought originates in Universal Mind.

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

(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

The subconscious operates everything the conscious mind does not, although it can be consciously directed. The imagination is a mental muscle. Need, want, and desire all describe methods of thinking and determine action we will take. Creative power of the individual begins as creative potential of the Universal. Spiritual truth is a conscious intentional use of cause and effect. Thinking is a cause that creates and effect. Observing this allows us to become conscious of power. Selfish thought works against the manifestation of the ideal state.

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

(4.28) All lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord is the result of the exact same law. This law operates relentlessly and is continuously bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thoughts that originate or create them.

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

(6.18) All things originate in mind.

(3.18) Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.

(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.

(5.8) The secret of power is a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.

(2.8) Our environment correlates to our predominant mental attitude.

Concentrating alters our perception, regardless of wether the quality of our thought supports conditions we desire or fear. We develop concentration by working towards a mastery of all methods of thinking. All form originates form a union between individual thought and the unlimited creative potential of the Universal. Faith refers to our confidence in the principle of cause & effect. Omniscience (unlimited power) is omnipresent because it exists within everyone. Our predominant mental attitude is the filter of our experience.
