  1. The intention governs the attention. Power comes through repose. It is by concentration that deep thoughts, wise speech, and all forces of high potentiality are accomplished.
  2. It is in the Silence that you get into touch with the Omnipotent power of the subconscious mind from which all power is evolved.
  3. Those who desire wisdom, power, or permanent success of any kind will find it only within; it is an unfoldment. The unthinking may conclude that the silence is very simple and easily attained, but it should be remembered that only in absolute silence may one come into contact with Divinity itself; may learn of the unchangeable law and open for themselves the channels by which persistent practice and concentration lead to perfection.
  4. This week go to the same room, take the same chair, the same position as previously; be sure to relax, let go, both mentally and physically; always do this; always do any mental work when calm and relaxed; see that there are relaxed muscles and nerves, that you are entirely comfortable. Now realize your unity with omnipotence; get into touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation, and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind, and bring it into manifestation, realize that it will meet any and every requirement; that you have exactly the same potential ability which any individual ever did have or ever will have, because each is but an expression or manifestation of the One, all are parts of the whole, they are the same in kind and quality, the only difference being one of degree.
Thought cannot conceive of anything that may not be brought to expression. He who first uttered it may be only the suggester, but the doer will appear. - Wilson.

  1. It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction. All natural laws are irresistible, the law of Gravitation, or Electricity, or any other law operates with mathematical exactitude. It is always the same, it is always perfect. If a bridge stays up, we attribute it to the correct observation of the law of gravitation. If a light comes on, we conclude that the laws governing electricity can be depended upon, and if the law of attraction is perfectly demonstrated by an experienced and informed person, we are to conclude that the greatest and most infallible law upon which the entire system of creation depends has been upheld. We conclude that an understanding of the law is required, for the same reason that a correct solution of a difficult problem in Mathematics that exists can always be obtained.
  2. Things are created in the mental or spiritual world before they appear in the outward act or event. by the simple process of governing our thought forces today, we help create the events which will come into our lives in the future, perhaps even tomorrow. Educated desire is the most potent means of bringing into action the law of attraction.
  3. People are so constituted that they must first create the tools, or implements by which they gain the power to think. The mind can comprehend an entirely new idea only when a corresponding vibratory brain cell has been prepared to receive it. This explains why it is possible for us to receive and appreciate an entirely new idea; we have a brain cell capable of receiving it; we are therefore credulous; we do believe it.
  4. If, therefore, you have not been familiar with the Omnipotence of the law of attraction, and the scientific method by which it can be put into operation, or if you have not been familiar with the unlimited possibilities which it opens to those who are enabled to take advantage of the resources it offers, begin now and create the necessary brain cells which will enable you to comprehend the unlimited powers which may be yours by cooperating with Natural Law. This is done by concentration or attention.

  1. The law is that thought will correlate with its object and bring forth in the material world the correspondence of the thing thought or produced in the mental world. We then discern the absolute necessity of seeing that every thought has the inherent seed of truth in order that the law of growth will bring into manifestation good, for good alone can confer any permanent power.
  2. The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power to correlate with its object, and therefore to master every human experience, is the law of attraction, which is another name for love. This is an eternal and fundamental principle, inherent in all things, in every system of Philosophy, in every Spiritual system, and in every Science. The law of love affects all. It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is desire, and desire is love. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.
  3. We find this truth emphasized wherever the power of thought is understood, The Universal Mind is Intelligence, and it is substance, and this substance is the attractive force which brings electrons together by the law of attraction so that they form atoms; the atoms in turn are brought together by the same law and form molecules; molecules take objective forms; and so we find that the law of love is the creative force behind every manifestation, not only of atoms, but of worlds, of the Universe, of everything of which the imagination can form any conception.
  4. It is the operation of this marvelous law of attraction which has caused people in all ages and all times to believe that there must be some personal being who responded to their petitions and desires, and manipulated events in order to comply with their requirements.

  1. This practical working method can come to you when you learn that the only real power which you can have is the power to adjust yourself to Divine and permanent principles. The Infinite is permanent and perfect, and you can come into an understanding of Natural laws. The reward of this understanding is a conscious realization of your ability to adjust your thought faculties with the Universal Thought which is Omnipresent. Your ability to cooperate with this Omnipotence will indicate the degree of success with which you meet.
  2. The power of thought has some truths which are fascinating, and when followed the results are helpful.
  3. Of course, peace, love, and all positive thoughts produce a crop after their kind; those who harbor thoughts of this kind must inevitably reap what they have sown.
  4. Again, there are the Truth seekers who nibble on the proofs and demonstration obtained from focusing on an ideal. They close their mental doors and soak themselves in the most rejuvenating currents which can be found in the world within. They understand that it is the ability to become positive, receptive and active, and thus charge themselves full of all vital force, which enables them to bring about these vibratory thought forms.
  5. In some instances, hypnotism is positively helpful to the subject as well as the operator. One familiar with the laws governing in the mental world would respect the will of another, for by so doing, they will gradually (but surely) invest themselves with more power.
  6. There is great fascination in a true understanding of the world of power within, a power which increases with use; is permanent; which not only is potent as an agency to bring about the cause for future accuracy and results of right thinking, but is an agency keeping us safe and secure, and finally is an actual creative force with which we can build new conditions and new environment.

  1. All purposes in life can be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought.
  2. This power to think is common to all. People are, because they think. People's power to think is infinite, consequently their creative power is always continuous.
  3. We know that thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, we find it easy to invite love, calmness and encouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we desire further towards us, so that it is always one step forward at a time.
  4. Keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.
  5. With this as a basis you can construct an ideal business, an ideal home, ideal friends, and an ideal environment. You are free as to material and cost. Thought is omnipotent and has the power to draw on the Infinite bank of primary substance for all that it requires. Infinite resources are therefore at your command.
  6. But your ideal must be sharp, clear-cut, definite; to have one ideal today, the same tomorrow, and the same next week, means to focus your forces and accomplish your ideal; your result will be a meaningful and ordered combination of fine material.
  7. Fortunately this is the result which some are securing, and the cause is self evident. A sculptor starts out with a piece of marble and a chisel and keeps their ideal constant. And so should you in moulding the greatest and most plastic of all substances,the only real substance.
  8. The result of this decisive and positive thought is often found in the gain of material wealth. But, the only independence is found to be a practical working knowledge of the creative power of thought.

Part Twelve - Introduction

Part Twelve is enclosed herewith. In the fourth paragraph you will find the following statement: You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.

If you concentrate upon the thoughts given, if you give them your entire attention, you will find a world of meaning in each sentence, and will attract to yourself other thoughts in harmony with them, and you will soon grasp the full significance of the vital knowledge upon which you are concentrating.

Knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists in fertilizing the thought with a living purpose.

The time and thought which some people invest in focused effort accomplishes wonders because it is properly directed with some special object in view. In order to do this, it is necessary to center your mental force upon a specific thought and hold it there. If you have ever looked through the viewfinder on a camera, you found that when the proper focus was obtained the picture was clear and distinct. This illustrates the power of concentration. When you can concentrate only upon the object which you have in view, you will have a clear, passionate, definite, distinct and focused outline of your ideal and the results will be in accordance with your mental picture.

  1. Thought reaches its loftiest activity when plunged into its own mysterious depth; when it breaks through the narrow compass of self and passes from truth to truth to the region of eternal light, where all which is, was or ever will be, melt into one grand harmony.
  2. From this process of self contemplation comes inspiration which is creative intelligence, and which is superior to every element, force or law of nature, because it can understand, modify, govern and apply them to its own ends and purposes and therefore possess them.
  3. Wisdom begins with the dawn of reason, and reason is but an understanding of the knowledge and principles whereby we may know the true meaning of things. Wisdom, then, is illuminated reason, and this wisdom leads to humility, for humility is a large part of Wisdom.
  4. We all know many who have achieved the seemingly impossible, who have realized life-long dreams, who have changed everything including themselves. We have sometimes marveled at the demonstration of an apparently irresistible power, which seemed to be ever available just when it was most needed, but it is all clear now. All that is required is an understanding of certain definite fundamental principles and their proper application.
  5. For your exercise this week, concentrate on this statement, Whatsoever things you desire, when you meditate, believe that you receive them and you shall have them; notice that there is complete freedom, Whatsoever things is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is a substance, the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
