Part Twenty-Two - Page 2

  1. We are all using this power every minute. The good thing is some of us are using it consciously and thus producing desirable results. The solution is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results. This should be easy, because we all have had sufficient experience to know what produces pleasant vibration in the body.
  2. All that is necessary is to consult our own experience. When our thought has been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibrations which brought about certain results. When our thought has been filled with generosity, love, understanding, praise or any of the other thousand and one forms of harmony, certain vibrations were set in motion which brought about certain more results of a beneficial nature, and each of these rates of vibration, if kept up,crystallized in form. In the first case the result was mental, moral and physical health, and in the second case peace, harmony and joy.
  3. We can understand, then, something of the power which the mind possesses over the body.
  4. The objective mind has certain effects on the body which are readily recognized. Someone says something to you which strikes you as ludicrous and you laugh, possibly until your whole body shakes, which shows that thought has control over the muscles of your body; or someone says something which excites your joy and your eyes fill with tears, which shows that thought controls the glands of your body; or someone says something which makes you aroused and the blood mounts to your cheek, which shows that thought controls the circulation of your blood. But as these experiences are all the results of the action of your objective mind over the body, the results are of a temporary nature; they soon pass away and leave the situation as it was before.
