Part Seventeen - Page 5

  1. Every situation conquered, every victory gained, will give you more faith in your power, and you will have greater ability to win. Your strength is determined by your mental attitude; if this attitude is one of success, and is permanently held with an steady purpose, you will attract to you from the invisible domain the things you silently demand. By keeping the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form. A definite purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose.
  2. You may be pursuing power itself. You may be pursuing honor, wealth, servitude; in either event you will find that they grow solid and strong as you achieve them.
  3. Mature wealth or position can be retained because it has been earned; we get only what we give, and those who give always find that the law of compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium.
  4. Understand the true source of power. The person who has found the true source of power; is interested only in being genuine or down to earth.
  5. Thought can be turned within where it will take hold of the basic principles of things, the heart of things, the spirit of things. When you get to the heart of things it is comparatively easy to understand and command them.
  6. This is because the Spirit of a thing is the thing itself, the vital part of it, the real substance. The form is simply the outward manifestation of the spiritual activity within.
  7. For your exercise this week concentrate as nearly as possible in accordance with the method outlined in this lesson; let there be only subconscious effort and activity associated with your purpose. Relax completely, seek only thought of calmness as to results. Remember that power comes through repose. Let the thought dwell upon your object, until it is completely identified with it, until you are conscious of only it.
