1.20-11

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

Spiritual power is the power os the individual to think. This power is omnipresent because it exists within every thinking individual. A desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects refers to the initiative of the individual to direct their attention to produce a specific change of perception/result. This conscious participation is what we call spiritual methods.

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

Spiritual Methods are always available because as long as we are conscious, we can (re)direct our attention.

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

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

(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.

Directed attention produces a corresponding feeling. Feeling is the basis for belief, hence, truth.

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

What we believe (truth) is the catalyst for all perception. Perception, in turn, produces action. This is what makes belief/truth the vital principle.

(1.15) If the premise is false, we are unable to form a conception of the results that may ensue.

A false premise is when the story we are told and/or believe contradicts with our thought and/or desire. These contradictions create neurosis.

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

A true premise is when our belief is in sync with our desires.

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

A knowledge of the truth is a knowledge of what we, and others, believe.

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

Constructive action is action that supports our ideal state/desire. Constructive thinking is action that supports our ideal state/desire.

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

Well-doing refers to how we treat others. Well-being refers to how we feel about ourselves.

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

(6.2) These effects can be changed by changing the mechanism to which the electricity is attached.

(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent of all right action.

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

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

(2.22) We may influence other forms of intelligence by a recognition of self as an individualization of the Universal.

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

(8.22) The real “I” is spiritual and can, therefore, never be less than perfect.

The subconscious mind is driven by feeling/sensation. This is intimately linked with the story we tell ourselves. By changing the story we tell ourselves, we can change how we feel. This requires constructive thinking. The effort this requires is the obstacle. Our resistance to make the effort is the difficulty. Our thought influences how we behave and, thus, how others respond or react to us. In this way, we influence others.  All thought is empowered by creative potential. There is only one source of creative potential, which makes it Universal. Our ability to access this creative potential is what makes us spiritual

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

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

(2.29) We give thought.

(7.29) 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.

(4.29) It is impossible for the mind to receive an entirely new idea without a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.

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

(6.9) Concentration is so important because it allows us to control our thoughts and since every thought is a cause, every condition is an effect. Therefore, if we control the cause, we control the cause, we control the effect.

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

Constructive thinking is unobstructed. Our predominant mental attitude filters our experience. When we give attention toward others, we add to the story they tell themselves. “Truth” is he story we tell ourselves because this story determines how we feel, thus, truth is subjective NOT universal. We must reinforce constructive thinking that supports our ideal if we wish to “reprogram” our attitude. Concentration allows us to do this more effectively. Thought is, then, carried by the sympathetic system of nerves  to the solar plexus, which–essentially–creates the vibration upon which other people react or respond to us (such as butterflies, anxiety, excitement, etc.)

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

Existential questions are at the root of introspection. Those who have been successful at finding peace in spite of paradox, are mimicked, which produces dogma.

(8.22) The real “I” is spiritual and can, therefore, never be less that perfect.

If I take a bottle and fill it with ocean water, it remains ocean water ever if I take the bottle home and place it on a bookshelf. In the same way, each individual contains the “water” of Universal Mind.

(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth concerning the conditions you desire to see manifested in life is the method for destroying all forms of fear.

The story we tell ourself with shape our experience. May as well make it a good story.

(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.

Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential, available to every thinking individual. Thus, if we can think for ourselves, we can think, speak, and act in ways that influence how others think, speak, and act.

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

There is nothing that exists that did not originate within Universal Mind (Ginnungagap).

(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. It exists everywhere. There is no where it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is all spirit and life.

Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential.

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

It is spiritual because it can be accessed by the individuals ability to think.

(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.

Our ability to think is what makes individuals spiritual.

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

Constructive thinking gives way to concentration.

(8.30) The result of constructive thinking is we will come to understand “God” as Universal Mind, which really and truly lives within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding.

Concentration produces a kind of stillness and comfort that people have deified.

 

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 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.

(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.

(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.

(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.
