Part Eighteen - Introduction

In order to grow we must obtain what is necessary for our growth. This is brought about through the law of attraction. This principle is the sole means by which the individual is differentiated from the Universal.

Think for a moment, what would a person be if they were not a husband, wife, father, mother, sister or brother, if they were not interested in the social, economical, or political world. They would be nothing but an abstract theoretical ego. People exist, therefore, only in their relation to the whole, in their relation to other people, in their relation to society. This relation constitutes their environment and in no other way.

It is evident, therefore, that the individual is simply the differentiation of the one Universal Mind which lighteth every person that cometh into the world, and their so-called individuality or personality consists of nothing but the manner in which they relate with the whole.

This we call their environment and is brought about by the law of attraction. Part Eighteen, which follows, has something more to say concerning this important law.
