3rd Key (a)

(3.1) The cerebral spinal system of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.

(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.

(3.21) Extremes are designated by distinctive names such as inside and out, top and bottom, light and dark, good and bad.

The cerebral spinal system carries the information gathered by our senses to the brain. This information is utilized by our consciousness in the process of Inductive reasoning. During this process, we categorize extremes to see a common factor within experience.

(3.30) The individual is so important because the Universal is static and requires energy to start it in motion. This is furnished by food which is converted into energy and–in turn–allows the individual to think. When he stops eating he stops thinking. He no longer acts upon the Universal. There is consequently, no action or interaction. The Universal is pure mind in static form; mind at rest.

(3.20) An understanding of the law of attraction has eliminated the elements of caprice and uncertainty in our lives and substituted law, reason, and certitude.

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

Eating generates the energy required for thinking. We direct our attention with confidence knowing every effect is produced by a cause, and the cause is our predominant mental attitude. This principle is possible because all creative potential originates within the Universal–the macrocosm–and thought is the microcosm.

Crossover Week #9 (b)

(1.2) All possession is based on consciouness.

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

(1.12) Right thinking is the condition precedent for all right action.

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

(1.22) Invisible forces are then set in motion to bring about the desired results.

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

Our difficulty or ability to concentrate reveals the degree our thoughts harass us and prevent us from opportunities. Ease of concentration comes from actively directing our attention to our desires not the ones constantly suggested to us, as long as those desires support the right of all life to thrive. This will inspire others to do the same.

(2.29) We give thought.

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

(2.19) A conscious recognition of the law of attraction with the intention of bringing it into existence for a definite purpose is a neccesary condition to bring this law into operation.

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

(2.9) This is the law of attraction.

(1.9) Inharmony, discord, lack and limitation are the result of destructive thinking .

Attention is our greatest currency. Internal dialogues compete with intuition for your attention. Thought is the effect. Directed attention is the cause. This is always the case. What we become is a product of how we direct our attention.

2nd Key (c)

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

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

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

The subconscious is the “operating system,” of our experience. Understanding the principle of cause and effect allows us to participate in how conditions of our experience will unfold.
Experience originates because of creative potential (spiritual energy) which, inevitably, manifests as form.

(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.

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

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

Nature is defended against stagnation by the law of growth. Polarity provides the neccesary spectrum upon which all experience vibrates. The rate of vibration depends upon our attitude.

Deep Dive: Concentration

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

Your object of thought should be what you are passionate about creating with your life. Passion, in this context, comes from within. It can not depend on people or conditions. You, alone, are responsible for maintaining your passion and developing it.

If your passion supports the plan of nature-which is to become conscious of itself-you have discovered your ideal state.

Do your actions reflect that you are absorbed in your passion? How much of your time is dedicated to practicing, visualizing, and developing, your object of thought?

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

Concentration is the cake. Perception, wisdom, intuition, and sagacity, are the ingredients.

Perception is maintained by our predominant mental attitude.

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

Wisdom is developed by inductive reasoning.

Intuition is the voice of our authentic Self, which can more easily be heard when we silence internal chatter.

Sagacity is introspective discernment.

(6.26) Concentration is the highest personal achievement that can be acquired. It is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful person.

(6.28) 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.

Again,

(1.6) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the universal and bring it into existence. The result of this action and interaction is cause and effect. Every thought is a cause. Every condition, an effect.

(6.27) Concentration may be acquired by practicing mental exercise.

Mental exercise may be cultivated through mindfulness, visualization and memorization.

Mindfulness is an awareness our experience while it is happening.

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

Memorization is the foundation of recall. A scattered mind has trouble recalling what has been memorized. As a mental exercise, developing recall will remain a consistent tool for measuring your ability to focus in addition to being the tool to restore focus.

1.6-1

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

Thought is the “light switch” by which we make use of the “electricity.”

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

Universal Mind is the energy/ingredient used in the formation of all created manifestations.

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

The subconscious “translates” the will of conscious mind into the language of the Universal Mind – which is the creative power of everything in existence.

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

The objective mind processes information gathered by the senses into forms which ego can understand: symbols.

(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.

Ideas, concepts and thoughts possess us. We have to become conscious of an idea, concept or thought to manifest form.

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

The material world of form (objects) is a reflection of the internal world of visualization and idealization.
