(3.3) The solar plexus is the central point of distribution for energy which the body is constantly generating.
(2.13) Knowledge of cause & effect allows us to plan courageously and execute fearlessly.
(1.23) The controlling factor in this method of thought is spiritual truth.
(8.23) To absolutely convince yourself of the truth concerning the conditions you desire to see manifested in life is the method for destroying all forms of fear.
Food in converted into energy, which empowers our ability to concentrate. Every thought is a cause. Our perception of conditions is the effect. We make choices based on this perception, which creates new causes.
Spiritual truth is the principle of cause & effect. Our thoughts, feelings, and belief constructs our perception and results in our attitude.
(8.28) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal Mind and bring desire into manifestation for the benefit of ourselves and others.
(1.28) Concentration operates by the development of the powers of perception, wisdom, intuition, and sagacity.
(2.18) Many fail to secure harmonious conditions because they do not understand this law of causation; there is no polarity, they have not found the circuit.
(3.8) Our predominant mental attitude determines the conditions we meet in life.
Universal Mind is unlimited creative potential.
The law of causation depends upon interaction between the individual and the Universal. This interaction is our thoughts. Whatever we think is communicated as desire.
Our predominant mental attitude is our consistent perception of conditions, as molded by our directed attention.
(2.4) The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination. It has the power of reasoning. It is the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious.
(1.14) If we know the truth, we can readily accept the outcome of every outcome based on a true premise.
(8.14) Spiritual power depends upon use; use determines its existence.
(7.24) Our greatest success will be achieved by a recognition of the fact that it is just as essential to give as it is to receive.
Consciousness mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire-the result of past reasoning will. Truth is what we believe. Spiritual power is our ability to consciously direct our attention to support our ideal state of being. Giving is an expression of love.
(7.27) The source of all discord is destructive thought.
(8.17) Thought is spiritual and, therefore, creative. To consciously control thought is to therefore control circumstance, conditions, environment and destiny.
(1.17) The nature of truth is spiritual.
(2.7) If our desires are in harmony with the forward movement of the great whole, forces will be set in motion to bring about the desired result.
Destructive thought is directed attention away from our ideal state of being. Truth is what we believe. It is spiritual because what we believe is a result of our thoughts are transmitted to unlimited creative potential. “The forward movement of the great whole,” is the law of love, which is the unification of all creation with the source of all creation. This is accomplished by bringing our thoughts into captivity and (re) directing our full attention in support of–in harmony with–our ideal state of being.
(1.8) Harmonious and desirable results are obtained by constructive thinking.
(6.8) For the first time in the worlds history, mankind’s highest reasoning faculty can be satisfied by demonstrable truth, which is fast flooding the world.
(7.8) We may overcome all fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord of every kind by substituting principle in place of error.
(8.8) The ideal held steadily in mind attracts the conditions necessary for its fulfillment.
Constructive thinking is directed attention that supports our ideal state. The results of concentration can be demonstrated and observed to the satisfaction of the greatest skeptic.
By directing our attention to our ideal state, we may eliminate all undesirable conditions.
(8.3) The imagination can be cultivated by practicing mental exercise; it must receive nourishment or it can not survive.
(7.13) Suffering may be avoided by placing ourselves in harmony with natural law.
(6.23) A conscious recognition of our perfection-first mentally and then emotionally-results in a manifestation of our perfection.
(1.3) We relate to the objective world by the objective mind; the brain is the organ of this mind.
Exercising our imagination develops concentration. Suffering is optional and develops as we complain about conditions. Thinking leads to feeling which leads to belief.
(1.9) Discord, inharmony, lack & limitation are a result of destructive thinking.
(6.29) This system meets every human requirement or necessity.
(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 principle applies to every form of negative thought.
(8.9)The development of imagination, insight, perception and sagacity result in keen analytical observation.
Destructive thinking is directing attention away from our ideal state. Cause & effect determines every outcome. We can eliminate darkness by changing the thoughts which have created our perception of darkness. create it.
(8.2) The cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal, upon which our future emerges.
(7.12) Difficulty and obstacles are necessary for wisdom and spiritual growth.
(6.22) Man is a spiritual being and this spirit must, necessarily, be perfect.
(1.2) All possession is based on consciousness.
We are possessed by our thoughts.
Imagination is visualization that supports our ideal state. When a greater effort is required to visualize and maintain our ideal, the more mental muscle we develop.
Our only imperfection is entertaining the belief we are not perfect.
(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.
(8.30) The result of constructive thought is you will come to know “God” as Universal Mind/Cosmic Consciousness which–really and truly–lives within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficiently applied understanding.
(7.30) Success is an effect not a cause. If you want to secure the effect, you must assertion the cause-the thought or idea–by which the effect is created.
Created form is an effect. Nature is the default principle of creation. Individuals may “reprogram” the default settings of their own nature. This is the process by which consciousness is emerging in individuals.
(7.29) A 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.
(8.29) Constructive thought is clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view.
Constructive thought is process of “turning the light on.”
(8.28) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring into manifestation that which benefits ourselves and others.
(7.28) We may eliminate all fear, lack, limitation, poverty, and discord by substituting principle in place of error.
We substitute principle in place of error by replacing destructive thought with constructive thought.
(7.27) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing, and visualizing, conditions of lack, limitation, disease, poverty, and discord of every kind. This mental photography or erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction brings the necessary substance to growth. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.
(8.27) The nature of Universal Mind is spiritual and consequently creative It seeks to express itself in form.
Universal Mind will create form under the direction of the principle of natures. Thought is an internal manifestation of this creative force, and will determine our perception.
(8.26) Universal Mind is omnipresent. It exists everywhere. There is nowhere it is not. It is, therefore, within you. It is the world within. It is all spirit and life.
(7.26) The great majority remain docile and willing tools of the few because they allow the few to do their thinking for them.
Each individual has the ability to think. This is their opportunity to access the ultimate source of creative potential. If they give this power to others, they will feel powerless.
(7.25) Financiers frequently meet with great success because they do their own thinking.
(8.25) Universal Mind is the totality of all existence.
Those who think for themselves–which includes the ability to and arrest their attention from ruminating mind–may access to unlimited creative power.
(5.12) We may know this method is correct by not permitting a tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts.
A tyrannical prejudice to neglect or mutilate unwelcome facts is a quality of behavior that identifies a dependency on absolutes (dogma).
(5.11) Observe individual facts carefully, patiently, and accurately before venturing to make a statement of natural law.
The importance of thorough observation is due to the creative potential associated with making a statement of natural law. When we “declare” we create a perception of reality which will affect our ability to react or respond to conditions we meet in life.
(5.10) The possession of power is contingent upon a proper use of the power already in our possession.
Power comes through applied knowledge. Thus, to possess (be possessed by) more power, we must continue to apply the knowledge we have gained.
…Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true. (7.20)
(5.9) All life and power come from within.
Life is experience. Power is our ability to influence conditions in life. This is accomplished by applying knowledge we have gained.
Insight enables us to understand the value of making application of knowledge we have gained…. (7.20)
(5.8) The secret of power is a recognition of the omnipresence of omniscience.
Omniscience is the capacity to know everything. This is possible because each individual is an outlet of Universal/Group Mind/Collective Conciseness. Thus, the capacity to know everything is omnipresent because we can know what every outlet of consciousness knows.
All power comes from within–the universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual, an outlet. (1.10)
(5.6) We compose and construct our mental home by the thoughts we entertain.
Our mental home is our predominant mental attitude, created by most repetitious object(s) of our thought.
(4.12) Knowledge of our power, courage to dare, and the faith to do so are necessary conditions for the materialization of the ideal.
Our power is the ability to adjust our thought.
Courage to dare is the willpower necessary to adjust our behavior.
The faith to do so is the confidence that compels us to take responsibility for our thoughts and actions.
(4.11) Any purpose in life can be achieved through a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.
A “scientific understanding” simply means observable. The spiritual nature of thought is an understanding that all thought is spiritual, that is, thought is the tool by which the Universal Mind (Cosmic Spirit) is able to create form in the objective world.
(4.10) The silence is the first step toward self control; self mastery.
Ruminating mind thrives on motion. When we are still, we begin to experience “gaps” in thinking. What emerges from the space between thoughts is unlimited creative potential; the place of cosmic divination. This is very different from the experience of ruminating mind consciously working to provide a “solution” that results in what is routinely accepted as inspiration.
Sometimes, when we are meditating or about to fall asleep, images may appear–like a dream–only we are conscious enough to “observe” this in the moments before we “fall” asleep. When we are “in the zone” (self mastery) is akin to this experience, although without observing what is happening until later, in reflection.
(4.9) The silence is a physical stillness.
The silence, quite literally, implies our ability to remain still.
(4.8) We get what we give.
We give thought. We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think. (2.29-30)
(4.7) The secret of power is service.
We may be of the most service by keeping an open mind. (7.22)
(4.24) The great business of life is constructive thought.
The “great business“, or, what will fundamentally enhance our experience of life, is constructive thought.
(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.
Thinking, which–in this context–may be distinguished from merely accepting what you are told without question, stimulates our awareness of consciousness.
(4.22) Recognition is consciousness.
Recognition is awareness. “Awareness” is consciousness.
(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.
Power is the ability to observe consciousness (recognition) and adjust our thoughts (use) to consistently reinforce this awareness.
(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.
Concentration is the ability to a) suspend ruminating mind while we b) direct our attention toward a specific object of thought.
(4.19) It is impossible for the mind to grasp an entirely new idea if there is not a corresponding vibratory cell capable of receiving the idea.
Mind learns through repetition. Repeated behavior produces greater ease and understanding of the behavior.
