  1. Abundance is a natural law of the Universe. The evidence of this law is conclusive; we see it on every hand. Everywhere Nature is lavish, bountiful, extravagant. Nowhere is economy observed in any created thing. Profusion is manifested in everything. The millions and millions of trees and flowers and plants and animals and the vast scheme of reproduction where the process of creating and recreating is forever going on, all indicates the lavishness with which Nature has made provision for humanity. That there is an abundance for everyone is evident, and that some succeed to participate in this abundance is also evident; they have come into a realization of the Universality of all substance, and that mind is the active principle whereby we are related to the things we desire.
  2. All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power. Events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.
  3. Knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation, enables people to plan courageously and execute bravely. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern in the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.
  4. Spiritual power is superior because it exists on a higher plane. It has enabled people 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 people to discover laws whereby time and space have been annihilated and the law of gravitation to be overcome. The operation of this law is dependent upon spiritual contact, as Henry Drummond well says:
