Part Eleven - Page 3

  1. If Plato could have witnessed the pictures executed by the sun with the assistance of the photographer, or a hundred similar illustrations of what people do by induction, he would perhaps have been reminded of the intellectual midwifery of his master and, in his own mind might have arisen the vision of a land where all manual, mechanical labor and repetition is assigned to the power of nature, where our wants are satisfied by purely mental operations set in motion by the will, and where the supply is created by the demand.
  2. However distant that land may appear, induction has taught people to make strides toward it and has surrounded them with benefits which are, at the same time, rewards for past fidelity and incentives for more assiduous devotion.
  3. It is also an aid in concentrating and strengthening our faculties for the remaining part, giving perfect solution for individual as well as universal situations, by the mere operations of mind in the purest form.
  4. Here we find a method, the spirit of which is, to believe that what is sought has been accomplished, in order to accomplish it.
  5. A method, bequeathed upon us by the same Plato who, outside of this sphere, could never find how the ideas became realities.
  6. This conception is also elaborated by Esther Hicks in her Abraham correspondences.
  7. We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact.
