Part Twenty-Three - Page 5

  1. Does this sound spiritual? I hope so; I do mean it to be so. Take away the implication of Personality, or Magnified Human Nature, from the conception of the The Infinite, and you have left the conception of an Infinite Presence-Power, the Quintessence of which is Consciousness -- in fact, at the last, Spirit. As this man, also, at the last, must be considered as a manifestation of Spirit; he, being Spirit, should so harmonize himself with his Origin and Source that he would be able to manifest at least a minor degree of its Power. All of us do this, more or less, when we use our minds in the direction of Creative Thought. This man did more, he went about it in an intensely practical manner.
  2. I have not consulted him about his method of procedure, though I intend doing so at the first opportunity, but, he not only drew upon the Infinite Supply for the ideas which he needed (and which formed the seed of his success), but that he also used the Creative Power of Thought in building up for himself an Idealistic Pattern of that which he hoped to manifest in material form, adding thereto, changing, improving its detail, from time to time -- proceeding from the general outline to the finished detail. I judge this to be the facts of the case, not alone from my recollection of the conversation a few years ago, but also because I have found the same thing to be true in the cases of other prominent people who have made similar manifestation of Creative Thought.
  3. Those who may grab onto this idea of employing the Infinite Power to aid one in their work in the material world, should remember that it will only work if the Infinite approved such a procedure. The Infinite is quite able to take care of Itself.
  4. Spirituality is quite practical, very practical, intensely practical. It teaches that Spirit is the Real Thing, the Whole Thing, and that Matter is but plastic stuff, which Spirit is able to create, mould, manipulate, and fashion to its will. Spirituality is the most practical thing in the world -- the only really and absolutely practical thing that there is!
