Part Nineteen - Page 5

  1. The substance from which all things are created is infinite in quantity; we know that light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second, and we know that there are stars so remote that it takes light 2,000 years to reach us, and we know that such stars exist in all parts of the universe; we know, too, that this light comes in waves, so that if the space through which these waves travel was not continuous the light would fail to reach us; we can then only come to the conclusion that this substance, or space, or raw material, is universally present.
  2. How, then, does it manifest in form? In electrical science a battery is formed by connecting the opposite poles of zinc and copper, which causes a current to flow from one to the other and so provides energy. This same process is repeated in respect to every polarity, and as all form simply depends upon the rate of vibration and consequent relations of atoms to each other, if we wish to change the form of manifestation we must change the polarity. This is the principle of causation.
  3. For your exercise this week, concentrate, and when I use the word concentrate, I mean all that the word implies; become so absorbed in the object of your thought that you are conscious only of the object, and do this a few minutes every day. You take the necessary time to eat in order that the body may be nourished, take the time to assimilate your mental food.
  4. Let the thought rest on the fact that the truth can be found. The earth is round, it is moving; the sky is infinite, the earth moves around the sun, the stars are massive balls of energy, and matter is in a state of perpetual flux.
  5. Try to realize that the day is fast approaching -- its dawn is now at hand -- when modes of thought and action must be adjusted to rapidly increasing knowledge of the operation of eternal principles.
Silent thought, is, after all, the mightiest agent in human affairs. - Channing
