Anahata (b)

(4.2) Thought is carried by the law of vibration.

Vibration carries thought and creates resonance.

Resonance is is heard with the ear. Vibration is felt by intuition.

(3.12) Inductive reasoning is a method of study that reveals a reign of law which marks an epoch in human progress.

This “reign of law” is cause & effect.

(2.22) We may control other forms of intelligence by a  recognition of Self as an individualization of Universal Intelligence.

Other forms of intelligence refers to the psychological forces and biological drives that manipulate human behavior.

(2.29) We give thought.

We give thought to others by thinking of them.

(3.29) Cause & effect is the principle by which faith is brought forth into manifestation.

Faith is a belief in the manifestation of desire.

(4.9) The silence is a physical stillness.

Remaining still allows us to gain a greater awareness of how our physical body feels.

Manipura (d)

(8.24) Universal Mind, in which we live and move and have our being, is one and indivisible. This makes it just as possible to help others as it is to help ourselves.

Every individual is “plugged in” to the same power source.

(3.4) The distribution of energy throughout our body may be interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.

Energy is distributed from our Solar Plexus.

(2.14) Life originates in the inorganic world, only by the introduction of a living form. There is no other way.

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

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

Natural law is the harmonious relationship between our thoughts and our ideal.

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

Form is created by the feeling generated by our thoughts.

(2.17) Causation depends upon polarity; a circuit must be formed. The Universal is the positive side of the battery of life. The individual is the negative, and thought forms the circuit.

The circuit is formed by feeling.

The Universal is unlimited creative potential.

(3.7) Fear can be eliminated by and understanding and recognition of the true source of power.

The true source of power is our predominant mental attitude.

(4.27) Universal mind is spiritual and, consequently, creative. It seeks to express itself in form.

Universal Mind is spiritual because it is activated by thought.

Svadhisthana (d)

(8.14) Spiritual power depends upon use. Use determines its existence.

Spiritual power is the ability of the individual to intentionally direct their attention toward visualization that supports our ideal.

(7.24) Our greatest success will be achieved by a recognition that it is just as essential to give as it is to receive.

The individual is complete at all times and this makes is possible to receive only as we give. (2.28)

(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 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)

(8.17) Thought is spiritual and consequently creative. To consciously direct thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment and destiny.

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

Svadhisthana (c)

(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.

Spiritual power is a recognition of our ability to communicate with creative potential by thinking.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

Selfish thought supports the needs, want, and desires of the individual rather than supporting others.

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

The subconscious is responsible for every function, process, and habitual behavior within the physical body and the mind.

(1.13) A knowledge of the truth is necessary for every business transaction and social relation.

Truth is what we, and others, think and believe. It is the principle of cause & effect brought into experience and our interactions with others; a recognition that thoughts originating, regardless of whether they originate within ourselves or others, produce effects that will impact the relationship/transaction.

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

Spiritual truth is our ability to intentionally direct our attention to produce desirable effects.

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

Our predominant mental attitude is a product of the majority of our thoughts.

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

Concentration is the art of pure directed attention, absent of penetrating distraction thought. .

Destructive thinking is selfish thought that does not support our ideal state.

 

Muladhara (c)

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

Mental exercise is any mental activity that suspends internal dialogues from ruminating.

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with cause & effect.

Suffering is a result of 1) trying to change effects without recognizing the cause or 2) an unwillingness to alter the cause of undesirable conditions when the cause has become recognizable.

(6.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

 Dissolution is a breakdown of harmonious conditions. Every individual is a part or aspect of the whole. Selfish thought is a cause that produces undesirable effects (conditions).

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

The objective world is the object oriented physical world of manifestation. Our brain organizes information from our senses to produce a tangible experience.

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

Constructive thinking is visualization that supports our ideal state.

(6.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

Gain is the manifestation of desirable conditions.

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

The “principle” is cause & effect. The “error” is trying to change effects without adjusting the cause.

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

The “ideal” is the optimum spiritual, mental, and physical conditions.

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.

Think As You’re Talking. (ISD12)

(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while imagination is a form of constructive thought, which precedes all constructive action. 

Daydreaming is synonymous with rumination; both describe a mental state in which will has surrendered power.

Will is the ability to consciously direct our attention. This takes initiative. Without initiative, our attention is directed by biological drives and psychological forces reacting to conditions we experience in life.

By slowing down and observing our tendencies to react, behavioural patterns emerge. We rely on these unconscious scripts anytime we refuse to direct our attention toward thoughts and activities that support the greatest version of who we aspire to be. This “greatest version” is our ideal state.

Achieving our ideal state does not happen overnight. We must demonstrate an ongoing interest in discovering our unconscious scripts and a willingness to discard or update the belief systems that provide us with value and meaning.

Taking initiative to direct our attention (constructive thought) is reflected in what we say and do (constructive action).

Scripts develop as a result of learned habitual behaviour, defence mechanisms, and social conditioning.

Most public speakers intentionally rely on scripts because they are effective in generating desired results. Scripts also protect us from becoming vulnerable or exposing ourselves to potential failure.

Ultimately, mind is doing its best to protect us, which explains why we rely on scripts as a default. Until the individual has developed an ability to consistently generate value and meaning independently of scripts, it would be hazardous to attempt to navigate life without these defaults in place. Scripts may be a crutch, but unless the individual is capable of walking on their own, removing the crutch only ensures they won’t be able to move forward.

Our scripts reveal our belief systems. Becoming conscious of the unconscious demands a willingness to become aware of the belief systems that motivate us. These include beliefs about ourselves and the world. This ongoing process can be painful, humbling, and destabilizing. Many people avoid taking the initiative to be introspective, especially if they have a belief system that suggests they are incapable of dealing with anything that infringes upon their comfort.

Avoidance, inevitably, leads to an event that forces the individual to confront their unwillingness to face challenges that are important for them to proceed.

Nature is consistently prompting itself onward. This is demonstrated in the individual through consciousness. Historically, consciousness has evolved most dramatically in response to chaos and tragedy.

Critical thought is the ability to examine our belief systems without bias. If you seek mercy for yourself and justice for others, you have a bias.

Imagination is directed attention that supports our ideal state.

“Thinking” silently often results in the constant distraction of rumination. Language spoken mindfully engages Will because effort requires attention.

Catch yourself when you are speaking your scripts. Slow down. Start over. Think as you’re talking.

Hold On

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

(8.30) The result of constructive thinking is you will come to know “the 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.

(8.17) The ideal held steadily in m ind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.

(3.23) Universal Mind-in which we live and move and have our being-is the creative principle of the spiritual, mental, and physical world.

(1.16) We may know the truth by a recognition of the fact that truth is the creative principe of the Universe and, therefore, omnipresent.

Mind is the generator of thought. Constructive thinking is directed attention that supports our ideal state. Individual thought is mirrored in the unlimited creative potential of Universal Mind. Thought generates belief. Belief empowers feeling. Feeling transforms our conscious state.

(3.29) Creative power originates in the Universal but can manifest itself, only, through the individual.

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

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

(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.

(1.16) The nature of truth is spiritual.

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

Spiritual power is the conscious use of cause & effect to attract the conditions we desire. It is spiritual because it involves thought and thought communicates the desire of the individual with the unlimited creative potential of the Universal.

 

 

 

kam chakr (MSM2e)

(1.15) If our belief regarding truth is different than another, we are unable to form a conception of the results that may ensue.

(2.15) Thought is the connecting link between the finite and the infinite.

(3.15) Jesus, Plato and Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.

(8.15) Thinking is the great business of life.

 

(8.16) Thought is spiritual and therefore creative. To consciously control thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment and destiny.

(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed, will germinate into fruition.

(2.16) The Universal can manifest itself, only, through the individual.

(1.16) We may know the truth by a realization of the fact that truth is the vital principle of the universe and therefore omnipresent.

The only absolute we are aware of is revealed in the patterns within nature.
