TTM criss-cross #4

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

(6.4) These conditions can be changed by changing the mechanism by which the brain is differentiated.

(1.14) With knowledge of the truth we can readily predict the results of any action based on a true premise.

(4.14) Thought takes form by the law of growth.

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

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

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

(8.24) The 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.

The distribution of energy through the body is essential to maintain health. This distribution is affected by the quality of our thought. The “truth” is the quality of our thought. This “truth” determines our perception of experience. This process is the law of growth, which is the principle by which we attract new conditions. Thought is, thus, our ability to connect with unlimited creative potential (the Universal). This allows us to change perceptions and conditions for others, in addition to ourselves.

(8.27) The nature of Universal mind is spiritual and consequently creative. It seeks to express itself in form.

(5.27) The Master Mind thinks big thoughts; he holds ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all petty and annoying obstacles.

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

(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 conceptions is the taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction crystalizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

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

(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual. 

(6.7) Concentration is the highest personal achievement that can be required. It is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman.

(3.7) This energy may be controlled and directed by conscious thought.

Unlimited creative potential becomes form by thought. Big thoughts are concentrated attention. The law of vibration is the resonance of our thoughts. Thus, undesirable conditions (the effects) are the result of vibrations that originate by entertaining undesirable thoughts (the cause). The only absolutes are what we observe in nature. Concentration is directed energy/attention.

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 (f)

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

Intelligence is applied self-awareness.

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

Self-awareness is only “self” as perceived through the individuals senses. Consciousness is, itself, Universal and our personal experience of it does not change its quality. In the same way, air is Universal. My experience of air does not take away from your experience of it.

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

The Universal is the source of all consciousness; unlimited creative potential.,

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

The individual creates mental pictures, and mental pictures become form.

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

Thought is the method by which the Individual accesses unlimited creative power.

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

The ME (Means of existence) are the individuals ability to create mental pictures.

(2.27) This law is brought in operation by the law of attraction.

The law of attraction is cause & effect.

(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.

The law of growth is how nature thrives.

(2.29) We give thought.

Directed attention toward others is how we give thought.

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

When others think of us, we receive thought.  This is substance in equilibrium until we make a decision to respond or react to their thought.

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.

The Second Mountain (c)

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

Imagination is the method by which thought is converted into feeling.

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

Our ideal state is the result of our predominant mental attitude. This means that our ideal state is determined by what we think and feel most often, NOT by what we think about once in a while in between feeling terrible and complaining that life is not what we desire.

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

Mental exercise is intentionally directing our thought. Repeated actions like memorization can be very effective, as well as visualization exercises.

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

Daydreaming is what happens when ruminating minds directs our thoughts, rather than intention. This leads to scattered mind.

(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.

Ignorance is a lack or knowledge and/or a lack of applied knowledge.

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

Thought makes knowledge possible.

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

Mind is the engine of thought.

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

Any image and feeling that persists in mind will shape our perception of conditions.

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

Imagination is directed thought toward our ideal state.

Insight is the result of applied knowledge.

Perception is a result of our predominant mental attitude.

Sagacity is wise and prudent discernment.

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

Opulence is fantastical abundance.

Harmony is equilibrium between polarity.

 

The First Mountain (d)

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

Making mental pictures requires imagination. The more we can exercise this “muscle” the clearer our mental pictures become.

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

The clearer we are able to hold an image or picture in mind, the more we are able to feel (idealize) the conditions we desire. This is the method to counteract or destroy all petty and annoying obstacles that are competing for our attention.

(7.3) Idealization is the process of feeling the conditions we will eventually manifest in the objective world.

Feeling empowers our desires and allows us to introduce “life” in the inorganic world. (2.14)

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

Mental pictures conjure feeling, and feeling changes our emotional neuro-state–the state of being at which our nervous system operates in cooperation with our thoughts/mindset.

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

Reinforcing mental pictures makes them clearer.

(7.6) The material for the construction of these mental pictures is secured through millions of tiny workers–brain cells.

Mental pictures are formed by brain cells working together in a unified and concentrated state, regardless of whether they produce desirable effects.

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

The law of growth ensures the cyclical nature of cause & effect. Every cause will produce an effet. Our response or reaction to these effects become a new cause which produces more effects. In this way, all conditions and experiences are generated by the cause (thought) that creates our perception of events and perception determines wether we respond (constructive) or react (chaotic) to conditions and experiences.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and form demand, are necessary conditions to use this law intentionally.

The law of cause & effect operates regardless of our conscious intervention, although, intentionally directing our attention to thoughts (causes) that support our ideal state, results in effects that are in harmony with our desires.

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

Fear manifests when we direct our attention to thoughts that lead to chaos.

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

We can generate harmonious effects if by intentionally directing our thoughts to support our ideal state.

The First Mountain (c)

(2.11) Abundance is the offspring of power.

Power is utilizing cause & effect to produce desired results.

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

Material possessions only have value if they can bring more abundance into our lives.

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

We can plan courageously and execute fearlessly because we know our thoughts are causes and perceptions are effects.

(2.14) Life originates in the inorganic world only by the introduction of a living form.

The organic world is designed to replenish itself, ie: nature. The inorganic world is the Universal/Primordial (unlimited creative potential) which is static, and requires the imagination (life) of the individual to give this static energy form.

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

The individual is finite. The Universal (unlimited creative potential) is infinite.

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

The Universal is static and requires thoughts from the individual to start it in motion. (3.30)

(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.

Causation (Cause & Effect) depends upon an individuals thoughts (action) interacting with the unlimited creative potential (Universal). This polarity produces form. Form is perception that leads to a response or reaction to existing conditions, which gives way to the creation of new conditions.

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

Without a knowledge and application of cause & effect, thought is not driven by intention, and–thus–ruminating mind will direct our attention.

(2.19) A recognition of the cause & effect with the intention of utilizing this law for a definite purpose is necessary to manifest our ideal state.

A definite purpose is important because the mastermind must hold ideas big enough to counteract and destroy all petty and annoying obstacles (5.27). Purpose is/are the “ideas big enough.”

Purpose will constantly be revised, so it’s important not to get hung up on a specific manifestation of our purpose.

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

The mind of individuals is spiritual because humans are able to separate their thoughts  from their psychological forces and biological drives.

 

 

 

Crossover Week #12 (d)

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Visualization precedes feeling. Feeling determines our state of being. Imagination is intentional and in cooperation with natural law, daydreaming is fantastical and motivated by selfishness. Our ability to direct attention is strengthened by taking every opportunity to direct our attention. This results in the law of attraction. Directing attention for the benefit of others is essential to our own health and growth, because the law of sympathetic resonance ensures that attention we direct towards others will manifest in us, as well.

(8.27) The nature of Universal Mind is spiritual and, therefore, creative. It seeks to manifest itself in form.

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

(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord of every kind. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

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

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

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

Directed attention is a force that must manifest. Conscious mind must choose to direct attention towards producing effects that we desire, rather than disregarding the consequences (effects) of the cause. In this way, we attract what supports our greatest desires. This is the law of attraction.

 

6th Key (d)

(6.4) Conditions can be changed by changing the mechanism by which the Universal is differentiated.

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

(6.24) Thought is spiritual and, therefore, creative, and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.

The Universal is differentiated to our directed attention. The opposite of motion is static; a non thinking state, such as meditation. Because thought connects us with creative potential, we are spiritual beings.

(6.27) Millions are making use of mental therapeutics.

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

(6.7) Concentration is the highest personal achievement that can be acquired; the distinguishing characteristic of every successful man or woman.

Mental therapeutics are a conscious adjustment of our thoughts, as causes, to produce desired effects. This adjustment is predicated on the knowledge that our thoughts contain a rate of vibration and these vibrations affect the construction of matter in the objective world. This begins with quarks and electrons. Concentration is the greatest tool we have for directing our attention.

5th Key (b)

(5.2) The vast mental storehouse–the subconscious–is generally not utilized.

(5.12) We may know this method (of observation) is correct by not permitting a tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts.

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

The subconscious stores our programing–our default responses or reactions to conditions we meet in life. Observation without bias is the only way to discover our subconscious defaults. With these observations, we can, then, access the creative power of the Universal to “reprogram”our subconscious.

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

(5.19) This knowledge explains the cause of every possible condition–spiritual, mental, and physical.

(5.9) All life and power is from within.

Our predominant mental attitude is the default “cause” of the effects we experience in life. This explains every possible condition. The cause is always within.
