The Distribution of Energy

(3.4) The distribution of energy throughout our body is interrupted by resistant, critical, discordant thought, but especially by fear.

Our bodies produce energy by consuming food (3.30). This energy empowers our physical and mental experience, just as hydration and sleep do.

Resistant” indicates a power struggle between directed attention and rumination.

Critical,” in this context, refers to a tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts. The popular term “critical thinking” is completely different, in that rather than a prejudice towards unwelcome facts, it welcomes them in an effort to analyze the most information available prior to making a decision.

Discordant” describes argumentative, antagonistic, inharmonious thoughts.

As an individuation of nature, we should aspire to live in harmony with all created things.

Fear leads to resistant, critical and discordant thoughts.

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.

Guiding Eye

(2.1) There are two modes of mental activity: conscious and subconscious.

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

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

(3.2) The sympathetic system of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.

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

(3.3) The solar plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating.

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

 

 

A True Premise

(1.24) The nature of our desires must be in harmony with natural law to create harmonious conditions.

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

(3.24) We relate to Universal Mind by our ability to think.

(8.24) Universal Mind–in which we live and move and have our being–in one and indivisible. This makes it just as possible to help others as it is to help ourselves.

(8.14) Spiritual power depends upon use; use determines its existence.

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

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

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

Natural Law is Cause & Effect. Universal Mind is the unlimited creative principle of the Universe.

To be in harmony with Natural law is to understand that every thought is a cause. Natural law is an expression of Universal Mind.

Constructive thinking is directing our attention to that which supports our ideal state.

Spiritual Power is the conscious use of cause & effect to produce results we desire.

(1.15) If our belief regarding truth is different than another, we are unable to form a conception of the results that may ensue.

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

(3.15) Jesus, Plato and Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.

(8.15) Thinking is the great business of life.

 

(8.16) Thought is spiritual and therefore creative. To consciously control thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment and destiny.

(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed, will germinate into fruition.

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

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

The only absolute we are aware of is revealed in the patterns within nature.

kam chakr (MSM2c)

(1.13) To know the truth is the underlying condition necessary for every business transaction and social relation.

(2.13) Knowledge of cause & effect allows men to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.

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

(8.13) Success depends upon spiritual power.

The “truth” –in this context– is what you and others believe.

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

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

(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.

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

Destructive thought does NOT support our ideal state of being.

Polarity must exist between what we think and what we desire.

Spiritual truth is believing in and acting upon a knowledge of cause & effect.

kam chakr (MSM2a)

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

(2.11) Wealth is the offspring of power.

(3.11) Inductive erasing is the 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.

(8.11) Wealth depends upon an understanding of the creative nature of thought.

“Wealth” is anything you have that others want.

(8.20) Constructive thinking is a recognition of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to direct it.

(3.20) A recognition of cause & effect enables us to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe.

(1.20) A recognition of the omniscience of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of it’s beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

“Spiritual” is the interaction between the individual and unlimited creative potential.

kam chakr (MSM1c)

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

(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.

(3.3) The solar plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating.

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

The objective world is the object oriented physical world of form.  Mental exercise is any mental activity that strengthens our ability to consciously direct and maintain our concentrated attention.

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

(3.8) Our predominant mental attitude determines conditions we meet in life.

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

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

Each individual must determine their personal ideal state of being. Our predominant mental attitude is determined by the quality and consistency of our habitual thinking. Constructive thought is directed attention that supports our ideal state.

 

 

kam chakr (MSM1b)

(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.

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

(3.2) The sympathetic system of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.

(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the of the ideal, out of which our future emerges.

We are possessed by our thoughts. Mastery is a result of  intentional, habitual, conscious intention becoming “automatic” behavior.

(8.9) The development of imagination, insight, perception, and sagacity results in keen analytical observation.

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

(2.9) The law of attraction is cause & effect.

(1.9) Discord, inharmony, lack and limitation, are the result of destructive thinking.

Keen analytical observation is necessary to identify causes. All causes produce effects.

Destructive thinking is any thinking that does not support our ideal state.
