Part Nineteen - Page 4

  1. A knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing steam, electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation enables people to plan courageously and to execute confidently. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.
  2. What are our schools, our universities, but mental powerhouses, places where mental power is being developed?
  3. As there are many mighty powerhouses for the application of power to ponderous machinery, whereby raw material is collected and converted into the necessities and comforts of life, so the mental powerhouses collect the raw material and cultivate and develop it into a power which is infinitely superior to all the forces of nature, marvelous though they may be.
  4. What is this raw material which is being collected in these thousands of mental powerhouses all over the world and developed into a power which is evidently controlling every other power? In its static form it is Mind - in its dynamic form, it is Thought.
  5. This power is superior because it exists on a higher plane, because it has enabled us to discover the law by which these wonderful forces of Nature could be harnessed and made to do the work of hundreds and thousands of people. It has enabled us to discover laws whereby time and space have been annihilated, and the law of gravitation overcome.
  6. Thought is the vital force or energy which is being developed and which has produced such startling results in the last half century as to bring about a world which would be absolutely inconceivable to a person existing only 50 or 25 years ago. If such results have been secured by organizing these mental powerhouses in 50 years, what may not be expected in another 50 years?
