(4.4) Thought takes form by the law of growth.
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)
(3.14) The formula for the unerring solution to every problem is to believe our ideal has already been fulfilled. It’s accomplishment will soon follow.
We need only to focus on our ideal and free ourselves from trying to imagine or direct the form our ideal will take.
(2.24) The Universal creates form by means of the individual.
Form is the result of the interaction between the individual and the Universal.
(2.27) The law of love is brought into operation by the law of vibration.
Love is the emergence of consciousness.
(3.17) This belief is scientifically intact because it is a natural law.
Scientific refers to conclusions based on observation.
(4.7) The secret of power is service.
Service is how we think and act toward others.
(4.2) Thought is carried by the law of vibration.
Vibration carries thought and creates resonance.
Resonance is is heard with the ear. Vibration is felt by intuition.
(3.12) Inductive reasoning is a method of study that reveals a reign of law which marks an epoch in human progress.
This “reign of law” is cause & effect.
(2.22) We may control other forms of intelligence by a recognition of Self as an individualization of Universal Intelligence.
Other forms of intelligence refers to the psychological forces and biological drives that manipulate human behavior.
(2.29) We give thought.
We give thought to others by thinking of them.
(3.29) Cause & effect is the principle by which faith is brought forth into manifestation.
Faith is a belief in the manifestation of desire.
(4.9) The silence is a physical stillness.
Remaining still allows us to gain a greater awareness of how our physical body feels.
(4.1) Thought is spiritual energy.
Thought is spiritual energy because thought is the means by which the individual and the Universal interact.
(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.
Inductive reasoning is a method of observation that allows us to discover patterns that result from our thoughts and actions.
(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.
Intelligence is the pursuit of knowledge and a consistent integration of this new knowledge we have gained.
(2.30) We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think.
Thought is conceptual (substance in equilibrium) and takes form when we begin to direct our attention to these concepts and mold them into our desired form.
(3.20) A recognition of cause & effect allows us to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.
We plan courageously by intentionally directing our attention to thought and actions that support our ideal state.
(4.10) The silence is the first step towards self control; self mastery.
Self mastery is the ability to hold our attention on thoughts and desires that support our ideal.
(8.25) Universal Mind is the totality of all existence.
Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe. (3.10)
(3.5) The result of this disruption (of energy throughout the body) is every ill which the human race has been inflicted.
Illness arises when there is a deficiency of energy.
(2.15) Thought is the connecting link between the finite and the infinite.
Finite is temporal. Infinite is eternal.
(1.25) Thought is transmuted into character and character is the magnet that creates the environment of the individual.
Character is the resonance created by our thoughts vibrating. This resonance is the “vibe” we send out to others and they filter this “vibe” through their experience with others.
(1.26) The control factor of every commercial pursuit is the mental element.
The mental element consists of keeping your thoughts directed on your ideal and free from attachment to your desire; we must focus on the ideal rather than how we desire the ideal to manifest.
(2.26) The Universal creates form by means of the individual.
Thoughts are like motion, the Universal like strings on an instrument, and form is the music created.
(3.6) This energy can be controlled and directed by conscious thought.
Thought is spiritual energy, because it is the connecting link between the individual and the Universal. (2.25) It may be consciously directed by taking initiative to ensure our thoughts support our ideal state. It follows that our actions must, also, support our ideal, which – in turn – ensures our thoughts will continue to support our ideal.
(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. It exists everywhere. There is nowhere it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is all spirit and life.
Universal Mind is omnipresent because it exists within each individual.
(8.22) The real “I” is spiritual and can, therefore, never be less than perfect.
The real “I” is the conscious expression of the Universal within each individual.
(3.2) The sympathetic system of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind.
Fight, flight, or freeze is an example of the sympathetic system of nerves.
(2.12) Possessions are of value only as they confer power.
If possessions are not tools that support our ideal state, they are weapons (that oppose our ideal).
(1.22) Invisible forces are, then, set in motion and irresistibly bring about conditions in correspondence with our thoughts.
Invisible forces are the gravity by which thought is manifested in form.
(1.29) Intuition is superior to reason because it does not depend upon existence or memory and frequently brings about a conclusion to our problems by methods of which we are in entire ignorance.
Intuition is the connection between the individual and the real “I.”
(2.19) A conscious recognition of cause & effect with a desire to be a recipient of it’s beneficial effects will result in success.
A conscious recognition gives way to a willingness to remain adaptable.
(3.9) To awake the solar plexus, mentally concentrate on conditions you desire to see manifested in life.
The solar plexus is the visualization center of the adept.
(8.29) Constructive thinking is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought, with a definite end in view.
The Master mind holds ideas big enough to counteract or destroy all petty and annoying obstacles. (6.27)
(8.11) Wealth depends upon an understanding of the creative nature of thought.
The creative nature of thought is demonstrated by rumination.
(7.21) The first law of success is service.
Service is the opposite of selfishness; it is a recognition that all life is an expression of the same universal creative potential and, necessarily, creates a desire within us to support and encourage this principle of life in others.
Service is a honoring the Universal in others.
The secret of power is service (4.6)
(2.1) There are two forms of mental activity, conscious and subconscious.
Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will. (2.5)
(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition of all well being.
Well doing is service; it is action that affects others.
(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects results in success.
Omnipotence means all-powerful; the most powerful force.
(2.10) Thought is spiritual and will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.
Thought is spiritual because thought is the connecting link between the finite and the infinite. (2.15)
(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If we want to secure the effect we must ascertain the cause-the thought or idea-by which the effect is created.
Every thought is a cause. Our perception of conditions is the effect. (1.7)
(8.20) Constructive thinking is a recognition of the creative nature of spiritual energy and our ability to control it.
Thought is spiritual energy and we direct this by thinking intentionally and, when required, adjusting our thought in support of our ideal state.
Power is manifested through the individual. Each individual is a channel whereby power is differentiated in form. (6.24)
(8.5) Mistakes are a result of ignorance.
Ignorance is a lack of information or an unwillingness to discover and/or apply new information
(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 inevitable substance to growth.
The law of attraction is Cause & Effect.
(6.25) Thought correlates with it’s object as a result of the law of vibration.
Thought is carried by the law of vibration (4.1), just as sound and radio waves are.
(1.5) Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom in existence.
Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe.
(1.6) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into existence.
All thought is interaction with creative potential.
(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, modifies, controls, changes, or destroys, a lower rate of vibration.
A lower rate if vibration is denser/heavier. The foods we consume, like all living things, vibrate at a specific rate.
(7.16) Desirable conditions are secured by entertaining desirable thoughts only.
Desirable conditions support our ideal state.
(8.6) Knowledge is a result of our ability to think.
Knowledge is new information that will require us to adapt.
(8.4) Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation while the imagination is a form of constructive though, which precedes all constructive action.
Daydreaming is visualization that does not support our ideal state. Imagination is visualization that supports our ideal.
(7.14) Cause & effect is the principle by which thought is manifest in form.
Our perception of conditions are the effect of thoughts, which are the cause.
(6.24) Thought is creative and correlates with it’s object to bring it into manifestation.
Rumination is evidence of the creative nature of thought. Mind is actively creating a story around the thoughts we entertain.
(1.4) We relate to the Universal Mind by the subconscious mind. The Solar Plexus is the organ of this mind.
Universal Mind is the creative principle of the universe.
The subconscious receives its governing tendencies from heredity. (5.4) These “governing tendencies” are the default attitudes that determine our behaviors unless the conscious mind actively seeks to “reprogram” these defaults.
The Solar Plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating. (3.3)
(1.7) The result of the interaction between the individual and the Universal is cause & effect. Every thought is a cause. Every perception is an effect.
We determine our perception by our predominant mental attitude; the result of the majority of our thoughts.
(6.27) Many fail because they focus on loss, disease, and disaster. The law is working perfectly. Fear is manifesting.
What we direct our attention to becomes our perception and what we perceive becomes our experience.
(7.17) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, disharmony and discord of every kind. This mental photography of erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction, inevitably, crystallizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sew is scientifically intact.
Cause & effect is a scientific principle because we can observe effects corresponding with thoughts.
(8.7) Mind is the very real moving force by which we attract the people and circumstances necessary for the completion of our plans.
If we direct our attention toward our goals, invisible forces are set in motion to bring about the desired results. (1.22)
(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal out of which your future will emerge.
Imagination is visualization that supports our ideal state. Cultivation is consistency.
(7.12) Difficulty and obstacles are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.
Difficulty is challenge. Obstacles demand that we adjust our path. These are necessary skills on the road to the liberation of our authenticity from ego.
(6.22) We are spiritual beings and this spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.
Imagine Universal creative potential is an ocean and every individual is a bottle that has been filled with water from this ocean. Spirit is the inherent substance of universal creative potential (Brahma) within every individual. More than an ability to communicate, spirit is, literally, a piece of Brahma.
(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.
We are possessed by what captures our attention. Whenever our attention is directed towards an object of thought, we experience a shift in consciousness.
(1.9) Discord, disharmony, lack, and limitation, are the result of destructive thinking.
Destructive thinking is directed attention toward what does not support our ideal state.
(6.29) This system will meet every human requirement or necessity.
The “system” is Cause & Effect (The Law of Attraction).
(7.19) A knowledge of the truth invariably destroys error. We do not have to laboriously shovel the darkness out. All the is required is to turn the light on. This same principle applies to every form of negative thought.
The “truth” is that all thought is a cause. If we want to change the cause, we must ascertain the thought or idea by which the effect is created.
(8.9) Keen analytical observation leads to opulence and harmony.
Keen analytical observation is an eager willingness to scrutinize our behavior in an effort to discover the cause (thoughts) that result in specific conditions.
(8.1) Imagination is a form of constructive thought. It is the light that penetrates new worlds of thought and experience; the mighty instrument by which all great discoverers and inventors have opened the way from precedent to experience.
Imagination allows us to mentally create pictures that support our ideal state while daydreaming is visualization that compromises our ideal.
(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what is required for our growth from each experience.
We must learn and grow from every experience.
(6.21) Sickness may be eliminated by placing ourselves in harmony with the principle of cause & effect.
Every thought is a cause. If we want to change conditions (effects), we must change the cause. Every thought contributes to the formation of our predominant mental attitude.
(1.1) The world without is a reflection of the world within.
The world within is the inner world of thought and feeling. The world without is the world of action and speaking.
(1.10) All power comes from within-the universal fountain of supply-the infinite energy of each individual, an outlet.
Each individual is a channel whereby creative energy (The Universal) expresses itself in form.
(6.30) True science and true religion are twin sisters. Where the one goes, the other, necessarily, follows.
Both science and religion arose from the ability of the individual to observe patterns.
(7. 20) Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself which is, by no means, true.
Integration is the application of new information. We must remain teachable.
(8.10) Keen analytical observation results in opulence and harmony.
… Abundance and peace.
