Part Sixteen - Page 6

  1. We must therefore construct only such mental images as are known to be scientifically true. Subject every idea to a searching analysis and accept only that which is scientifically exact. When you do this you will attempt nothing but what you know you can carry out and success will crown your efforts; this is what business people call farsightedness; it is much the same as insight, and is one of the great secrets of success in all important undertakings.
  2. For your exercise this week, try to bring yourself to a realization of the important fact that harmony and happiness are states of consciousness and do depend upon the giving of things. That things are effects and come as a consequence of correct mental states. So that if we desire material possession of any kind our chief concern should be to acquire the mental attitude which will bring about the result desired. This mental attitude is brought about by a realization of our spiritual nature and our unity with the Universal Mind which is the substance of all things. This realization will bring about everything which is necessary for our complete enjoyment. This is scientific or correct thinking. When we succeed in bringing about this mental attitude it is comparatively easy to realize our desire as an already accomplished fact; when we can do this we shall have found the Truth which makes us abundant and free.
A person might frame and let loose a star, to roll in its orbit, and yet not have done so memorable a thing before the Infinite as one who lets a golden-orbed thought to roll through the generations of time.
- Inspired by H. W. Beecher
