Part Eleven - Page 6

  1. Thought reaches its loftiest activity when plunged into its own mysterious depth; when it breaks through the narrow compass of self and passes from truth to truth to the region of eternal light, where all which is, was or ever will be, melt into one grand harmony.
  2. From this process of self contemplation comes inspiration which is creative intelligence, and which is superior to every element, force or law of nature, because it can understand, modify, govern and apply them to its own ends and purposes and therefore possess them.
  3. Wisdom begins with the dawn of reason, and reason is but an understanding of the knowledge and principles whereby we may know the true meaning of things. Wisdom, then, is illuminated reason, and this wisdom leads to humility, for humility is a large part of Wisdom.
  4. We all know many who have achieved the seemingly impossible, who have realized life-long dreams, who have changed everything including themselves. We have sometimes marveled at the demonstration of an apparently irresistible power, which seemed to be ever available just when it was most needed, but it is all clear now. All that is required is an understanding of certain definite fundamental principles and their proper application.
  5. For your exercise this week, concentrate on this statement, Whatsoever things you desire, when you meditate, believe that you receive them and you shall have them; notice that there is complete freedom, Whatsoever things is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is a substance, the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Death is but the natural process whereby all material forms are thrown into the crucible for reproduction in fresh diversity.
