2nd Key reverse (odd)

(2.29) We give thought.

(2.27) This principle is brought into operation by the law of vibration.

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

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

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

We give thought” refers to directing our attention toward others.  Others “receive” (are influenced by) these thoughts because thought vibrates it resonates from us like radio waves from a transmission tower. In this way, thought also is “received” by the Universal (unlimited creative potential).

Individuals can be identified by their awareness of the importance of their thoughts.

(2.19) A conscious recognition of the law of attraction (cause & effect) with the intention of bringing it into existence for a definite purpose is necessary to utilize this law to bring our desires into manifestation.

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

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

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

(2.11) Wealth is the offspring of power.

Intention prompts us to take responsibility for our thoughts because they are the cause of how we perceive conditions. Perception determines wether we respond or react to conditions, and this choice–to respond or react–is what creates new conditions we experience. This process is often called the law of attraction.

Cause and effect is an example of polarity, as is the interaction between the individual and the Universal; the finite and the infinite.

Causation is why conditions change. Power is an ability to intentionally change conditions.

(2.9) This is cause and effect.

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

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

(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.

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

The “forward movement of the great whole” refers to the progress of nature., which depends upon causation ((cause & effect). To be in harmony with nature is, then, to understand the value in directing our attention. We gain this ability by making conscious choices that support our ideal state. Habitual thoughts and actions become subconscious beliefs.

 

 

 

2nd Key reverse (even)

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

(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.

(2.26) The Means of Existence are carried into effect by the law of love.

(2.24) The Universal can manifest itself, only, though the individual.

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

When others direct their attention to us, we “receive” substance in equilibrium. We mold this substance by our response or reaction; the story we tell ourselves about their directed attention.

Nature functions by the law of growth which, necessarily, is the absence of excess.  The Means of Existence/spirituality is the individuals ability to access the unlimited creative force of the Universal, which needs the individual to think up ideas and concepts to give experience form. Each conscious individual is an outlet of this creative potential, regardless of their awareness of the connection between their thoughts and creative potential.

(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.

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

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

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

(2.12) Possessions are of value only as they confer power.

Thought suggests desired outcomes/form to creative potential (The Universal) regardless of or intent. This ability is what makes the individual spiritual. This interaction forms the battery of life. The Universal is the positive side, the individual is the negative, and thought forms the circuit.

We introduce life by thought and action. Power is our ability to change conditions, thus, possessions are only of value if they confer this ability.

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

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

(2.6) We may impress the subconscious by mentally stating what is wanted.

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

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

Thought is creative energy, which is why it can “communicate” with the Universal-the source of all creative potential. As a result, our environment is constantly perceived through the filter of our thoughts.  Intentionally directing our attention, habitually, allows us to replace subconscious defaults with defaults that support our ideal state.  It is up to conscious mind must take this initiative. Habitual behavior/repetition is the way to achieve this.

 

2.10-1

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

Thought is creative. Ruminating mind proves this. Our capacity to tell ourselves stories is profound, and the convincing quality of these stories is demonstrated by  our eagerness to believe them.

(2.9) This is the law of attraction.

Belief is the effect and the story we tell ourselves is the cause.

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

We perceive conditions that support the story we tell ourselves.

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

Regardless of the nature of your thoughts, they are transmitted to the Universal as desire.

Cause and effect is the most basic principle of nature. Thus, if we think intentionally–with the knowledge that our thoughts are transmitted as desire–then we are in harmony with natural law.

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

We “reprogram” the subconscious by consciously repeating ourselves with thoughts and actions that support our ideal state.

(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire–the result of past reasoning will.

Our subconscious mind thinks according to conscious habitual reinforcement.

(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.

Discrimination, in this context, is the ability to recognize the difference between a variety of options/choices. Reasoning is our ability to compare and contrast information to secure an informed conclusion. Will is our ability to override defaults. We impress the subconscious by reinforcing our ideal.

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

The subconscious provides the options whereupon conscious mind chooses.

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

Conscious repetition achieves mastery.

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

 

 

1.10-1

(1.10) All power comes from within–the Universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual, an outlet.

Power is the ability to change conditions. The Universal is unlimited creative potential. The “energy” of each individual is vibration generated by our thoughts.

(1.9) Discord, inharmony, lack and limitation, are the result of destructive thinking.

Destructive thinking does not support our ideal state; it is in contrast with our desires.

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

Constructive thinking supports our ideal state; it reinforces our desires.

(1.7) The result of this action and interaction is cause and effect. Every thought is a cause. Every condition is an effect.

The interaction between an individuals ability to think and the unlimited creative potential of the Universal is our source of power.

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

Thought creates perception, and perception motivates action (brings into existence).

(1.5) The Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe.

Nature thrives because it is creative.

The Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential.

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

Our subconscious links creativity (Universal Mind) with our conscious mind. The less we have to consciously think about an activity while doing it, like playing an instrument, the closer we come to mastering that activity. Think of professional athletes or musicians, for example.

(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 one we observe/experience via our senses.

(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.

We are possessed by thought.

(1.1) The world without is a reflection of the world within.

The world without is the objective world of experience The world within is the internal world of experience. .

1.30-21

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

All form is a symbol of our directed attention. Directed attention is spiritual activity because it is interaction between the individual and unlimited creative potential, which we call The Universal.

Spiritual reality is thought determining our perception of conditions. Possessing this reality refers to an individuals knowledge of this process and their corresponding initiative to direct attention so as to produce a desirable perception.

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

Existence is experience. Memory is how we biasly remember this experience. Reason is the process of ruminating mind creating and solving problems. This process depends upon experience and memory.

Intuition is a knowing that does not depend on reason. We often discover our intuition when reason is suspended, such as while engaged in an extreme sport or traumatic event.

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

Perception is the filter of our experience. Wisdom is the ability to make decisions free of bias. Intuition is a knowing that does not depend on reason. Sagacity is discernment.

We develop these “powers” through mental exercise.

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

Form is physical manifestation. Mind is the ruler in the sense that mind determines our perception of form. Our perception influences our actions within conditions, and this choice to respond or react gives way to the creation of new conditions.

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

The mental element is a knowledge that our thoughts create a vibration which impacts our perception of events and this vibration determines how others react or respond to us.

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

Character is the mental element that determines how others react or respond to us.

(1.24) The nature of our desires must be in harmony with the patterns of nature.

Nature follows observable patterns. These patterns are often referred to as Natural Law. The nature of our desires, therefore, must be in harmony with these established and irrefutable patterns. For instance, if we desire something–like love or wealth–but think about loneliness and poverty, we are not in harmony with these established patterns. Our thoughts must be consistent with our desires, otherwise our desires will not manifest.

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

Truth is whatever we direct our attention to. It is spiritual because or thoughts interact with creative potential, which determines our perception of conditions.

(1.22) Invisible forces are, then, set in motion that will irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with our thoughts.

Invisible forces refer to the magnetic/gravity-like pull that radiates from our perception of conditions.

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

Concentration is, essentially, the ability to “turn off” the internal dialogues that are distracting us from directing our attention, completely, to a specific task.

 

 

 

 

 

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 (a)

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

The Cerebral Spinal System is concerned with transmission of impulses from sense organs to the voluntary muscles.

(3.2) The Sympathetic System of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.

The Sympathetic System-responsible for flight or flight–is part of the Autonomic Nervous System, which is responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes.

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

The Solar Plexus is a complex of ganglia and radiating nerves of the sympathetic system at the pit of the stomach.

(3.4) This distribution may be interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.

If the nerves of our body were like a garden house, fear is like obstructing the flow of water through the hose.

(3.5) The result of this disruption is every ill which the human race has been afflicted.

When the flow of energy is obstructed, dis-ease is the result.

(3.6) This energy can be controlled and directed by conscious thought.

Conscious thought eliminates obstruction.

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

The true source of power is our ability to consciously direct attention.

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

Our predominant mental attitude is the filter of all experience.

(3.9) To awake the solar plexus, mentally state what is wanted.

By mentally stating what is wanted, and consistently reinforcing this desire, we remove obstructions of energy and allow the solar plexus to radiate at the vibration that will “attract” our desire.

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

Universal Mind is the source of unlimited creative potential. Directing Attention “travels” through the nerves of our body  and–upon reaching our Solar Plexus–is the “communicated” to Universal Mind.

TSM criss-cross #5

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

(5.5) The law of attraction is bringing us to our own.

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

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

(6.15) The Individual is the means by which the Universal produces various combinations that result in the formation of phenomena.

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

(4.25) Constructive thinking is the ability top adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles; to cooperate with natural law.

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

The subconscious can be “reprogramed’ through habitual conscious thought. Cause and effect brings to us that which we think about because thoughts are causes. Jesus, Plato, and Swedenborg all taught this. Ignorance is unapplied knowledge. Character reveals what we think about most often. Constructive thinking is attention directed toward thoughts/causes that produce desire conditions/effects. Those who think for themselves meet with success.

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

(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

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

(6.16) The power of the individual to think is his ability to act upon the Universal and bring manifest desire.

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

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

(5.6) Our own is who we inherently are–the result of all past thinking.

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

We can think for ourselves (constructive thought) through observing ways in which subconscious thought is generated in mind and consciously directing thought to create causes that will produce our desired effects. Those with a mental advantage succeed. This advantage is knowledge. We are what we think. We can consciously direct our attention by mentally stating (visualizing) our desire.

The Second Mountain (e)

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

Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential. It is “universal” because each individual can access this creative potential, which makes it omnipresent.

(6.12) All motion, light, heat, and color have their origin in Universal Energy, which is one form of Universal Mind.

Universal Energy is the “raw material” of potential, in the same way that electricity is the raw material of the effects it can produce.

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

All thought is creative because thought originates within this pool of creative potential we call Universal Mind.

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

Mind in motion is referred to as rumination. Rumination allows us to learn. It is destructive when our attention is directed toward destructive thought.

(6.15) The individual is the means by which the Universal creates various combinations that result in the formation of phenomena.

The Universal creates various combinations (conditions we encounter) as a result of the quality of an individuals directed attention.

(6.16) The power of the individual to think is their ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into existence.

Directed attention (thought) alters our perception of conditions and opportunities, thus, we are more inclined to respond or react to these conditions and opportunities based on our predominant mental attitude, which is the result of our most repetitious thoughts.

(6.17) Quarks and electrons are the first form the Universal takes, as far as we know.

All form has come into being as a result of thought. All form is constructed by quarks, which form electrons.

(6.18) All things have their origin in mind.

The origin of all things begins within the mind, where the interaction between the individual and the Universal–thought–produces cause & effect.  All thoughts are causes, all perceptions are effects.

(6.19) The result of a change in thought is a change in conditions.

When we change the object of our directed attention, our perception of conditions changes, and as a result, we will respond or react differently, which creates a change in the trajectory of conditions and our experience of them.

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

A harmonious mental attitude is the result of transcending the polarity of extremes (the urge to label experience as “good” or “bad”) and discovering a greater option is available to us when we live within the Mandorla, or, the place of balance and moderation created when extremes begin to overlap, as demonstrated by the “football” shape created when two circles/moons merge.

The Second Mountain (d)

(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.

Inductive reasoning is the art of observing and identifying patterns, which are effects, and then reverse engineering these effects to discover the cause of the patterns.

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

The reign of law which marks and epoch in human progress is cause & effect. All thoughts are causes and all perceptions are effects.

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

Need, want, and desire are the basis for all craving and aversion, and consequently, all thought.

(3.14) The formula for the unerring solution to every problem is to believe our desires have already been fulfilled. Their accomplishment will soon follow.

In this context, “believe” implies feeling.

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

Each of these teachers recognized and endorsed the power of belief.

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

Thought is the seed that is planted. It is left “undisturbed” as long as we do not try to manipulate people and events.

(3.17) This belief is scientifically intact because it is a natural law.

It is a natural law because nature behaves according to this same principle.

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

The “evidence” is feeling.

(3.19) Cause & effect is the natural law by which faith is brought forth into manifestation.

Faith is brought forth into manifestation as we act upon our ability to direct thought.

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

When we act upon this knowledge, we gain the confidence to proceed with our plans.
