(1.22) [As a result of concentration]… invisible forces are set in motion to bring about the desired result.
(1.24) The nature of our desires must be in harmony with natural law.
(1.26) The controlling factor of every commercial pursuit is the mental element.
(1.28) Concentration operates by the development of perception, wisdom, intuition and sagacity.
(1.30) The symbol is only the outward form of the spiritual reality within, therefore, unless we possess the spiritual reality, the form disappears.
All states of consciousness have a corresponding vibration. This vibration is like a magnetic force and attracts to us conditions that correspond with the nature of our thought. Thought alters perception, and perception dictates how we will react or respond to conditions, which creates new conditions.
If we want to participate in the creation of ideal conditions, we must ensure our thoughts support the conditions we desire. It is not enough to desire abundance while thinking/concentrating on lack and poverty., or whatever it is you desire.
The mental element is our ability to direct our attention; to concentrate. This ability develops as a result of an awareness that perception is the filter of our experience, wisdom is the ability to make decisions free of bias, intuition is a knowing that does not depend on reason, and sagacity is discernment.
We must recognize that all form/conditions we experience are a reflection of what we are thinking and feeling, as directed by biological drives and psychological forces. Only with this knowledge can step beyond these drives and forces to become an observer of our experience, at which point Self can make decisions independent of our defaults.
(1.20) A recognition of the omniscience of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.
(1.18) The secret to the solution to every problem is to apply spiritual truth.
(1.16) We may know the truth by a recognition of the fact that truth is the vital principle of the Universe and, therefore, omnipresent.
(1.14) If we know the truth, we can readily predict the results of any action based on a true premise.
(1.12) Constructive thinking is the condition precedent for all constructive action.
Omniscience is unlimited power. A desire to be a recipient of this unlimited power will empower us to be more vigilant, as we direct our attention to thoughts that support our ideal state. This ability to concentrate on thoughts that support our ideal state is spiritual truth. It is truth because we believe it. It is spiritual because it involves the interaction between the individual and unlimited creative potential (The Universal).
Truth is omnipresent because every conscious mind has the ability to believe. Unless our actions are supported by our thoughts, we are not living our truth.
Constructive thinking and action support our ideal state/desire.
(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.
(1.4) We relate to the Universal Mind by the subconscious mind. The solar plexus is the organ of this mind.
(1.6) Our ability to think is our power to act upon unlimited creative potential and bring the object of our thought into manifestation.
(1.8) Harmonious and desirable results are the result of constructive thinking.
(1.10) All power is from within-the Universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual, an outlet.
We are constantly possessed by altering states of consciousness produced by our response or reaction to biological drives and psychological forces.
Unlimited creative potential/power (Universal MIND) is the means by which SELF can override these default drives and forces. This is most effective when we reprogram our defaults. We do this observing the drives and forces, and then consciously making a decision that supports our ideal state. This is Constructive Thinking.
