Part Twenty-One - Page 4

  1. Aspire to the highest possible attainments in anything you may undertake, for the mind forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will in the effort to crystallize its highest aspirations into acts, accomplishments, and events. An illustration of how these mind forces operate is suggested by the method in which all our habits are formed. We do a thing, then do it again, and again, and again, until it becomes easy and perhaps almost automatic; and the same rule applies in forming any and all good habits; we start doing a thing, and then seek it again, and again until we are entirely bound to it; and if we do succeed now and then, we should by all means gain hope, for the law is absolute and invincible and gives us credit for every effort and every success, even though our efforts and successes are perhaps not constant.
  2. There is total freedom to what this law can do for you; dare to believe in your own idea; remember that Nature is plastic to the ideal; think of the ideal as an already accomplished fact.
  3. The real field of life is one of ideas; it is being played out by all; on the one side is the constructive and creative thought, on the other side the non constructive and non positive thought; the creative thought is dominated by an ideal, the non active thought does not see the underlying truth of things. On both sides are people of science, people of letters, and people of affairs.
  4. On the creative side are people who spend their time in laboratories, or over microscopes and telescopes, side by side with the people who dominate the commercial, political, and scientific world; on the positive side are people who spend their time investigating new and better ways, people who understand what knowledge is, states people who know and do what is right, and all the people who prefer to progress, who are eternally looking forward, who see the world without, and know the world within.
