A Primer for Living a Life
Conscious Thought has Power
The Universal Mind in Its subjective state is what we mean by the Law of Mind. The subjective Medium is limitless and can do anything that we may wish It to do. It must obey the conscious thought since It has no power to reason other than deductivity. This is why conscious thought has power. Power and energy are phases of mind acting as law. Mind in all its phases is some part of God and since God or Spirit is a complete and a perfect Unit then man’s mind is simply the place where he individualizes God.
The only concentration necessary in the best use of Mind is specific mental attention and complete mental acceptance. Always remember that you are not dealing with a reluctant Force but with a completely receptive one which, by Its very nature, is compelled to receive the images of your thought. It has no other choice and can conceive no other. You make up Its mind for It.
Acceptance and realization. These words are fraught with the greatest meaning to the one who wishes to consciously use the creative power of thought for definite purposes. Acceptance and realization are mental qualities and may be consciously generated.
When we treat we should be specific. “Whatsoever things we desire” when we pray we should “believe that we have them.” If we wish money we should ask for, or mentally accept, money. If we wish a home we should ask for, or mentally accept, a home. We can put as much detail into our mental work as we desire. Sometimes to do so will be of great service in gaining a complete mental acceptance and embodiment of our desires.
Our mental acceptances should be filled with conviction, warmth, color and imagination. The creative power responds to feeling more quickly than to any other mental attitude. Therefore we should try to feel the reality of what we are doing when we give a treatment. This reality is felt as we become more and more convinced that Spirit responds to us.
We should grow into the understanding that Spirit responds to us and becomes more Conscious of Its Presence within us. It is the very breath of our breath… the imagination back of our word. It is the creative power in our thought and the law in energy that executes that thought. “God is all in all, overall and through all.” There can be no greater or more complete Allness. This Allness is within us, or we may say that within is the only place we can contact It. It is necessary to understand this else sometimes we shall be trying to reach outside and this is impossible.
If one were to make a complete mental picture of himself as he would like to be, filling in all the details of his desire and trying to except the whole thing as a present reality, he would soon demonstrate that the control of affairs is from within out and not from without; the cause being that whatever exist as a mental picture in mind must tend to, and finally does take form if the pictures really believed in and embodied.
We should be careful to distinguish daydreaming and wistful wishing from really dynamic and creative treatment. We treat we do not wish, we KNOW. We do not dream, we STATE. We do not hope, we ACCEPT. We do not pray, we ANNOUNCE we do not expect something is going to happen, we BELIEVE THAT IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.
We should think clearly and allow the image of our thoughts to sink into a subjective state. We do not crowd them down, we let them sink into this inner receptivity with power and with conviction. our individual subjective mind is our place in the universal creative law and immediately connects us with limitless power and energy.
There is a vast difference between “holding thoughts” and holding things in thought. One is the attempt at an impossible coercion; the other is a mental acceptance. To hold thoughts, as though where forcing issues, does no good and utilizes but a fraction of the creative power at our disposal. To hold in thought, as though we were letting something happen, is to use the greater power… the greatest power of all.
Conscious thought is the starting point of every new creation. Train thought is far more powerful than untrained since the admission that thought is power gives It added power. This is one of the great secrets of Mental Science. Conscious thought is the starting point. The Subjective Law knows only to obey. It can do nothing else. It has no will of its own. We impress our will upon It. We do not will, as though we were using an arbitrary force, we impress It. We should be careful to differentiate between these two attitudes of mind.
The idea of a successful life will create success. This idea will find objective form in the outer world of the one who holds to it with conviction. It must first become established in the conscious mind. It will then transmit itself into a subjective embodiment and when this happens success will become habitual.
