Part Fifteen - Page 3

  1. We manifest more and more life as our thought becomes clarified and takes higher planes. This is obtained with greater facility as we use word pictures that are clearly defined, and influenced by the conceptions attached to them on higher planes of thought.
  2. It is with words that we must express our thoughts, and if we are to make use of higher forms of truth, we may use only such material as has been carefully and intelligently selected with this purpose in view.
  3. This wonderful power of clothing thoughts in the form of words is what differentiates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom; by the use of the written word humans have been enabled to look back over the centuries and see the stirring scenes by which they have come into their present inheritance.
  4. They have been enabled to come into communion with the greatest writers and thinkers of all time, and the combined record which we possess today is therefore the expression of Universal Thought as it has been seeking to take form in the mind of Humanity.
  5. We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.
  6. Words are thoughts and are therefore an invisible and invincible power which will finally objectify themselves in the form they are given.
  7. Words may become mental places that will live forever. They may delight the eye as well as the ear; they may contain all knowledge; in them we find the history of the past as well as the hope of the future; they are living messengers from which every human and superhuman activity is born.
