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.

Reciprocal Action

(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.

(4.8) We get what we give.

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by a conscious recognition of and cooperation with, natural laws.

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

(1.26) The mental element is the controlling factor in this method of thought.

We give thought. Our directed attention influences the lives of those we think about.

Cause & effect is a principle of natural law. Every thought is a cause. This knowledge is the “mental element.”

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.

(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination, it has the power of reasoning. It has the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious.

(5.4) The law of attraction (cause & effect) is bringing us to our own

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

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

(6.14) Thought is mind in motion.

(1.24) The nature of our desire must be in harmony with Natural law.

(4.24) Constructive thinking is the great business of life.

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

Conscious mind is the tool by which we may “reprogram” our subconscious defaults. Utilizing cause & effect is the way to accomplish this. Daydreaming is allowing your thoughts to be directed by ruminating mind. Imagination is the art of intentional thinking. Our belief (confidence in) this principle will compel us to direct our attention to thoughts that support our ideal state. Thought is mind in motion. We must direct our thought (desires) to support the effects we desire. This is harmony with natural law. This is constructive thought. Directing our attention in service of humanity is our greatest success. 

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

(4.27) Universal Mind is the basic fact of all existence

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

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

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

(8.7) The mind is a real moving force by which we secure the persons and circumstances necessary to achieve our plans

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

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

Directed attention (concentration) will determine how we experience conditions. Universal Mind is an unlimited source of creative potential from which all quarks and electrons come into being. We access Universal Mind through our physical mind, conscious and subconscious. We are able to confirm this through observation (science). Directed attention attracts.

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

(4.5) The secret of thoughts creative power is spiritual activity.

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

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

(8.15) We may take our fate out of the hands of chance by constantly realizing the conditions we desire to see manifested in life.

(3.25) Thought is the seed that results in action; action results in form.

(5.15) This principle destroys superstition, precedent, and conventionality.

(6.25) The Law of Vibration is then brought into operation for the greater good.

All form originates from create potential/Universal Mind. Thought is our direct link to this creative potential. This is spiritual power. Repeated thought makes it easier to visualize. The clearer we visualize, the easier we may feel the conditions we will eventually manifest. Feeling is the key. Feel the conditions you desire. Opportunity, then, presents itself for us to act on.  This principle of cause and effect is observable. because thought corresponds with a rate of vibration and each form (effect) produced will correspond to the rate that created it.

(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, modifies, controls, changes, or destroys a lower rate of vibration.

(5.16) These laws have been discovered by a recognition of facts that are unusual, rare, strange, or form the exception.

(3.25) Form depends on the rate of vibration.

(8.26) Thinking is the great business of life.

(7.6) The material for the construction of these mental images is secured by millions of tiny workers; brain cells.

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

(4.6) We may acquire the faith, courage, and enthusiasm that results in achievement by a recognition of our spiritual nature.

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

Constructive thought produces a higher rate of vibration. We know this through observation. All form depends on the vibration of spiritual energy (thought). Therefore, thinking, is the most important thing we need to be concerned about. Brain cells working in harmony result in constructive thinking. . A recognition of our spiritual nature empowers imagination. Imagination unlocks creative potential and creates form.

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

(4.3) Thought is given vitality by the law of love.

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

(7.3) Idealization is the process of feeling conditions we desire to experience.

(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.

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

(5.13) The class of facts that can not be observed in the visual daily observation of life are esteemed most highly.

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

The objective mind labels form into objects. Thought is empowered by love. What we think about (cause) eventually takes form (effect) as be begin to feel as if these conditions were already happening. The eternal energy of Universal Mind is spiritual power. Because humans can access this power, we are perfect. Imperfection is the result of ignorance. Facts that can not be observed are considered supernatural.

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

(5.18) When we learn of a fact, we can can be sure it is the result of a certain definite cause, and this cause will act with invariable precision.

(3.28) Mental action depends upon polarity-action and interaction the individual and the universal.

(8.18) The source of all chaos is destructive thought.

(7.8) Earnest desire, confident expectation, and form demand, are necessary steps to consciously utilize this principle to manifest our desire.

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

(4.8) We get what we give.

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

Demonstrable truth means that results repeat with invariable precision. This is the case with cause and effect, which is a result of mental action. If we direct our attention toward destructive thoughts, we will begin to perceive the world as though these destructive conditions have already happened. Rather, we may direct our attention to constructive thoughts. Firm demand is a refusal to entertain destructive thinking. Polarity is the interaction between the individual and the Universal.  We give thought.

7th Key (d)

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

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

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

Visualization inspires feeling. Feeling is what empowers our mental pictures. We must feel our desires. Our mental pictures must cause us to feel. This is the “secret” to the Law of Attraction. In addition, our desires must be in service to others.

(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 sew is scientifically intact.

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

Concentration is directed attention, which causes us to feel. What we think about will manifest in our perception of conditions.



7th Key (a)

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

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we require for our growth from each experience.

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

Our ability to visualize our ideal allows us to “feel” our ideal, and feeling is the ignition of experience. Learning from experience, allows us to transcend any unwanted feelings associated with the experience. Success depends upon service.

(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If we want to secure the effect, we must ascertain the cause–the thought or idea–by which the effect is created.

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have acquired.

(7.10) The alternative is to concentrate on conditions we desire to see manifested in our lives.

Success begins with the quality of ur thoughts/directed attention.  This principle of cause and effect must be applied for us to benefit from this knowledge. If we concentrate on conditions we desire to see manifested, we will begin to feel as though they are happening. Feeling is the key to changing your perceptions and, perceptions determine how we respond or react to conditions and opportunities.

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

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

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

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

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

(6.22) We are spiritual beings and this spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.

The subconscious is generally neglected by the individual, despite the enormous control it has over our decisions. Just as we can change the effects caused by electricity, we can reprogram the defaults of the subconscious, which is empowered by Universal Energy. This begins with observation of our subconscious defaults. We, then, utilize the creative potential/power of the Universal-which empowers us to think–to redirect our attention. We can do this because we are spiritual beings, which means we can choose to direct our attention rather than simply be guided by our defaults.

(6.29) Mental therapeutics will meet every human requirement or necessity.

(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, or physical.

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

(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 effect.

(5.9) All life and power come from within.

Mental therapeutics is taking the initiative to direct and redirect attention. Our attention is guided by our predominant mental attitude. This explains the cause of every condition we feel. Directed attention determines how we feel (our experience). Concentration is the art of directing attention at the expense of distraction. Life and power originate within us; within the creative potential to create an experience of our greatest imagination.

5th Key (e)

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

(5.15) This principle destroys superstition, precedent, and conventionality.

(5.25) The result is nothing less than marvelous. It opens unprecedented and limitless opportunity.

How we direct our attention is constantly influencing who we believe we are. Thus, if our mind is constantly bouncing from extremes, this explains our fluctuating moods and lack of secure identity. This knowledge allows us to direct our attention in a consistent manner to produce the results we desire.

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

(5.16) These laws have been discovered by a generalization of facts that are unusual, rare, strange, and form the exception.

(5.6) Our own is who we inherently are–the result of all past thinking, both conscious and subconscious.

Thought allows secure desired conditions. This is a fact because it is consistently observable. Who we believe we are in a result of our predominant mental attitude.
