(3.1) The Cerebral Spinal System of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.

(6.1) Some of the effects that can be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.

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

(4.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved by a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.

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

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

(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.

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

Our senses send information to the brain via the Cerebral Spinal System. In the same way that wires carry messages from devises to the source of electricity. We feel how we act. A scientific understanding is information we have gained through observation. “Appropriate information we have learned” in applying the knowledge we have gained. Our degree of intelligence is is measured by our conscious state. Awareness of knowledge brings the unseen into view. A knowledge of the truth is our awareness of how our thoughts are creating our perceptions of reality, upon which we make decisions that will lead to what conditions next present themselves.

(8.30) The result of an understanding of constructive thinking is a recognition that “god” is a symbol of Universal Mind, which really and truly does live within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding. 

(5.21) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of dive election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual; the democracy of humanity.

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

(7.20) Insight allows us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true.

(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.

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

(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thinking. This is allowing us to direct conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.

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

God” is a mythological representation of each individuals ability to direct their attention toward manifesting ideal conditions. The thoughts of others are like clay that are molded by the story we tell ourselves about what they are thinking. Our story determines how we feel. Applying this information means taking responsibility for your thoughts. Concentration is the ability to direct attention. This generates an omnipotent power because thought is our connection to unlimited creative potential; the creative principle of the Universe. Directing our attention toward manifesting our ideal state is constructive thinking.

 

 

 

The Third Mountain (e)

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

Discovering what we can learn from each experience allows us to “let go” of unpleasant emotions.

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

Difficulty and obstacle provide the necessary resistance to make “training” possible. Just as if you were working out, difficulty and resistance allow us to develop “muscle.”

(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.

Suffering is the result of trying to resist or deny difficulty and obstacle.

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

The law of attraction is cause & effect.

(7.15) The law of love–which is the creative principle of the universe–adds vitality to thought while the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth.

The law of love  is a recognition that each individual is an outlet of the very same creative potential that can empower our desires.

(7.16) Desirable conditions are the result of entertaining desirable thoughts only.

(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 conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction inevitably crystalizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sew is scientifically intact.

Directed attention will manifest in our perception of conditions. Perception, then, influences our attitude. Attitude determines how we will react or respond to conditions. Our reaction or response will create new conditions.

(7.18) We may eliminate all lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.

The principle referred to is an applied understanding of cause and effect

(7.19) 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.

The “truth” is that whatever we direct our attention toward, we will come to “believe.”

(7.20) Insight enables us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself which is–by no means–true.

We apply the knowledge we have gained by taking responsibility for our thoughts.

(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.

TSM criss-cross #4

(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.

TSM criss-cross #3

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

(5.3) Few understand or appreciate that subconsciously mind can be consciously directed.

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

(3.13) Need, want, and desire–in the largest sense–induce, guides, and determines action.

(6.13) The creative power of thought originates in Universal Mind.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the controlling factor in this method of thought.

(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

The subconscious operates everything the conscious mind does not, although it can be consciously directed. The imagination is a mental muscle. Need, want, and desire all describe methods of thinking and determine action we will take. Creative power of the individual begins as creative potential of the Universal. Spiritual truth is a conscious intentional use of cause and effect. Thinking is a cause that creates and effect. Observing this allows us to become conscious of power. Selfish thought works against the manifestation of the ideal state.

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

(4.28) All lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord is the result of the exact same law. This law operates relentlessly and is continuously bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thoughts that originate or create them.

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

(6.18) All things originate in mind.

(3.18) Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen.

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

(5.8) The secret of power is a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.

(2.8) Our environment correlates to our predominant mental attitude.

Concentrating alters our perception, regardless of wether the quality of our thought supports conditions we desire or fear. We develop concentration by working towards a mastery of all methods of thinking. All form originates form a union between individual thought and the unlimited creative potential of the Universal. Faith refers to our confidence in the principle of cause & effect. Omniscience (unlimited power) is omnipresent because it exists within everyone. Our predominant mental attitude is the filter of our experience.

 

 

The Second Mountain (h)

(7.21) The first law of success is service.

We may be of service to others by directing out attention to them, in thought and action.

(7.22) We can be of the most service by keeping an open mind. Be interested in the race not the goal; the pursuit not the possession.

Keeping an open mind refers to non-judgement. We do not know how conditions will unfold, thus, it is premature to judge.

(7.23) Selfish thought contains the germ of dissolution.

Selfish, in this context, refers to the opposite of service.

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

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. (2.28)

(7.25) Financiers frequently meet with great success because they do their own thinking.

The incentive to budget and invest–wether time, money or resources–is essential to 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.

Thinking for ourselves requires taking responsibility for how we manage our resources.

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

(7.28) Concentrating on gain brings gain into effect.

We perceive experience based on our directed attention. Our predominant mental attitude is constantly being revised and updated by the quality of our thought, regardless of wether our attention is directed consciously or habitually.

(7.29) This is the only principle ever used or ever can be used. There is none other. That it may be used unconsciously does not alter the situation.

All experience is filtered through our perception.

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

We must be willing and able to observe the quality of our thought and the effects they produce so that we may eliminate destructive thought.

The Second Mountain (g)

(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.

Power” is our ability to consciously direct thought.

(4.22) Recognition is consciousness.

Consciousness is awareness of our thoughts and the effects they produce.

(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.

Observing the effects that are produced by thinking reveals to us which thoughts are responsible for creating specific effects.

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

Constructive thinking is intentionally directing our attention toward concepts and ideas that support our ideal state.

(4.25) Constructive thinking is the ability to adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles; to cooperate with natural law.

Natural law is cause & effect. “Adjusting ourselves” refers to accepting responsibility for our thoughts as causes of our perceptions, which determines how we will react or respond to conditions and opportunities.

(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

Psychological forces

methods of thinking

combinations of mind refers to the way in which patterns of thought (complexes)  interact with one another, psychological forces, and biological drives.

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

Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential, out of which all form is manifested.

(4.28) All lack, limitation, disease, inharmony, and discord is due to the operation of the exact same law. This law works perfectly and in continually bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thought that originates or creates them.

Universal Mind produces conditions in correspondence with our thought, regardless of wether our thought will produced desired or undesired effects.

(4.29) Inspiration is the art of self realization. It is the art of adjusting the individual mind to Universal Mind; a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.

Inspiration comes to us by accessing unlimited creative potential within.

(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think, thus, our quality of thought determines conditions we meet in life.

Thought precedes action.

 

The Second Mountain (f)

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with the object of our thought that we’re conscious of nothing else.

We must learn to eliminate the tendency to direct our attention to thought that does not support our ideal state. Thought is like a cloud passing above us. It is not until we direct our attention toward it, that we become possessed by it.

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

By directing our attention toward thought that supports our ideal state, we begin to filter experience through a strainer that eliminates the cause of undesired effects.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the controlling factor in this method of thought.

Spiritual refers to the ability of the individual to intentionally think, in contrast to biological drives and psychological forces. Thought is creative and depends upon an interaction with unlimited creative potential that comes from the Universal.

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

Natural law is the principle/pattern of cause and effect. Most people fail because they become fixated on the effect. They desire the effect and begin to daydream about how their life will change with the effect. They treat conditions in life as supportive or unsupportive on the effect and completely neglect the cause.

Our desires must BECOME the cause, and the effects will take care of themselves. For example, the cause is practice, the effect is success. We must desire to practice and master whatever it is we are passionate about, and the success will follow.

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

Our directed attention creates a vibrational frequency that affects us physically and emotionally. Other people will “tune into” this frequency, whether consciously of subconsciously, and the impression that forms in others perception of our vibrational frequency is what we refer to as character.

(1.26) The control factor of every commercial pursuit is the mental element.

The mental element is the spiritual; our ability to consciously direct our attention, knowing that every thought is a cause and every condition, an effect.

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

Mind is the “engine” that facilitates thought.

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

Wisdom is applied knowledge leading to sound judgement. Perception is a result of our predominant mental attitude. Intuition is the knowing that comes from within, absent of reason; what we viscerally feelSagacity is discernment.

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

Existence (past, present, or imagined future experience) and memory (how we remember past experience) create bias, which can impair our perception and decision making.

(1.30) The symbol is the outward form of the spiritual activity within, therefore, unless we possess the spiritual reality, the form disappears. 

Effects are symbols. They reflect our predominant mental attitude, as shaped by our directed attention.

Symbols are effects. A symbol without integrated knowledge and experience is just a symbol.

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.

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.
