Part Twenty - Introduction

For some years there has been a discussion as to the origin of good. Some people have ventured that the Universal is Love and is Omnipresent. If this be true, where then, is not good, not good beings and not good places? Let us see:

The Universal is Spirit.

Spirit is the Creative Principle of the Universe.

We are part of the Universal.

We are therefore spiritual beings.

The only activity which spirit possesses is the power to think.

Thinking is therefore a creative process.

All form is therefore the result of the thinking process.

The change of form must also be a result of the thinking process.

Invention, organization and constructive work of all kinds are the result of the creative power of thought, as in concentration.

When the creative power of thought is manifested for the benefit of humanity, we call the result good.

When the creative power of thought is manifested in a non constructive or non beneficial manner, we call the result not good.

This indicates the origin of both good and a single word for not good; they are simply words which have been coined in order to indicate the nature of the result of the thinking or creative process.

Thought necessarily precedes and predetermines action; action precedes and predetermines condition.

Part Twenty will throw more light upon this important subject.
