(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.
