  1. This then is the Temple of the living Infinite and the individual I is given control and upon their understanding of the mechanism which is within their control will the result depend.
  2. Every thought sets the brain cells in action; at first the substance upon which the thought is directed might not respond, but if the thought is sufficiently refined and concentrated, the substance finally yields and expresses perfectly.
  3. This influence of the mind can be exerted upon any part of the body, causing the creation of any desirable effect.
  4. A perfect conception and understanding of the laws governing in the mental world will succeed in being of inestimable value in the transaction of business, as it develops the power of discernment and gives a clearer understanding and appreciation of facts.
  5. The person who looks within will succeed in making use of the mighty forces which will eventually determine their course in life and so bring them into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable.
  6. Attention or concentration is probably; the most important essential in the development of mind culture. The possibilities of attention when properly directed are so startling that they would hardly appear credible to the uninitiated. The cultivation of attention is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful person, and is the very highest personal accomplishment which can be acquired.
  7. The power of attention can be more readily understood by comparing it with a magnifying glass in which the rays of sunlight are focused; they possess no particular strength as long as the glass is moved about and the rays directed from one place to another; but let the glass be held perfectly still and let the rays be focused on one spot for any length of time, the effect will become immediately apparent.
  8. So with the power of thought; focus this power through attention or concentration on any single purpose for any length of time and anything becomes possible.

  1. In the first place, there is the great mental world in which we live and move and have our being; this world is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent; it will respond to our desire in direct ratio to our purpose and faith; the purpose must be in accordance with the law of our being, that is, it must be creative or constructive; our faith must be strong enough to generate a current of sufficient strength to bring our purpose into manifestation. As thy faith is, so be it unto thee, bears the stamp of scientific test.
  2. The effects which are produced in the world without are the result of the action and reaction of the individual upon the universal; that is the process which we call thinking; the brain is the organ through which this process is accomplished; think of the wonder of it all! Do you love music, flowers, literature, or are you inspired by the thought of ancient or modern genius? Remember, every beauty to which you respond must have its corresponding outline in your brain before you can appreciate it.
  3. The brain can express every single virtue or principle in the storehouse of nature. The brain is an embryonic world, ready to develop at any time as necessity may arise. If you can comprehend that this is a scientific truth and one of the wonderful laws of nature, it will be easier for you to get an understanding of the mechanism by which these extraordinary results are being accomplished.
  4. The nervous system has been compared to an electric circuit with its battery of cells in which force is originated, and its white matter to insulated wires by which the current is conveyed; it is through these channels that every impulse or desire is carried through the mechanism.
  5. The spinal cord is the great motor and sensory pathway by which messages are conveyed to and from the brain; then, there is the blood supply plunging through the veins and arteries, renewing our energy and strength, the perfectly arranged structure upon which the entire physical body rests, and, finally, the delicate and beautiful skin, clothing the entire mechanism in a mantle of beauty.

  1. The Universal Mind is so wonderful that it is difficult to understand its utilitarian powers and possibilities and its unlimited producing effects.
  2. We have found that this Mind is all intelligence and all substance. How, then, is it to be differentiated in form? How are we to secure the effect which we desire?
  3. Ask any electrician what the effect of electricity will be and they will reply that Electricity is a form of motion and its effect will depend upon the mechanism to which it is attached. Upon this mechanism will depend whether we shall have heat, light, power, music or any of the other marvelous demonstration of power to which this vital energy has been harnessed.
  4. What effect can be produced by thought? The reply is that thought is mind in motion (just as wind is air in motion), and its effect will depend entirely on the mechanism to which it is attached.
  5. Here, then, is the secret of all mental power; it depends entirely on the mechanism which we attach.
  6. What is this mechanism? You know something of the mechanism which has been invented by Edison, Bell, Marconi and other electrical wizards, by which place and space and time have become only figures of speech, but did you ever stop to think that the mechanism which has been given you for transforming the Universal, Omnipresent Potential Power was invented by a greater inventor than Edison?
  7. We are accustomed to examining the mechanism of the implements which we use for tilling the soil, and we try to get an understanding of the mechanism of the automobile which we drive, and some us are interested in gaining absolute knowledge of the greatest piece of mechanism which as ever come into existence, the human brain.
  8. Let us examine the wonders of this mechanism; perhaps we shall thereby get a better understanding of the various effects of which it is the cause.

Part Six - Introduction

It is my privilege to enclose Part Six. This part will give you an excellent understanding of the most wonderful piece of mechanism which has ever been created. A mechanism whereby you may create for yourself Health, Strength, Success, Prosperity or any other condition which you desire. Necessities are demands, and demands create action, and actions bring about results. The process of evolution is constantly building our tomorrows out of our todays. Individual development, like Universal development, must be gradual with an ever increasing capacity and volume.

The knowledge that if we respect the rights of others, we become moral roses and find ourselves free at every turn of the road, should be an indication that success is contingent upon the highest moral ideal, which is The greatest good to the greatest number.

Aspiration, desire and harmonious relations constantly and persistently maintained will accomplish results. The greatest assistance is correct and flexible ideas.

To be in tune with eternal truth we must possess poise and harmony within. In order to receive intelligence the receiver must be in tune with the transmitter.

Thought is a product of Mind and Mind is creative, we can come into harmonious relationship with the Universal, and when we have accomplished this we may ask anything to which we are entitled, and the way will be made plain.

  1. Now, go to your room, take the same seat, the same position as heretofore, and mentally select a place which has pleasant associations. Make a complete mental picture of it, see the buildings, the grounds, the trees, friends, associations, everything complete. At first, you will find yourself thinking of the ideal upon which you desire to concentrate. Let that encourage you. Persistence will win, but persistence requires that you practice these exercises every day.

  1. Those who have come into possession of this inheritance are never quite the same again. They have come into possession of a sense of power hitherto undreamed of. They will always be bold, strong, decisive, and courageous. They are indissolubly connected with Omnipotence. Something in them has been aroused; they have suddenly discovered that they possess a tremendous overt ability of which they were heretofore entirely unconscious.
  2. This power is from within, but we can only receive it when we give it. Use is the condition upon which we hold this inheritance. We are each of us but the channel through which the Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form; when we give, the channel is opened and we can receive more. This is true on every plane of existence and in every field of endeavor and all walks of life. The more we give, the more we get. The athlete who wishes to get strong must make use of the strength they have, and the more they give the more they will get. The financier who wishes to make money must make use of the money they have, for only by using it can they get more.
  3. The merchant who keeps their goods going out will always have them coming in; the corporation which gives efficient service will have many customers; the attorney who gets results will have many clients, and so it goes everywhere; power is contingent upon a proper use of the power already in our possession; what is true in every field of endeavor, every experience in life, is true of the power from which every other power known among people is begotten -- spiritual power. Add spirit and what do you have? Everything.
  4. If then the spirit is all there is, upon the recognition of this fact must depend the ability to demonstrate all power, whether physical, mental or spiritual.
  5. All possession is the result of the accumulative attitude of mind, or the money consciousness; this is the magic wand which will enable you to receive the idea, and it will formulate plans for you to execute, and you will find as much pleasure in the execution as in the satisfaction of attainment and achievement.

  1. You are familiar with the subject of heredity. Darwin, Huxley, Dawkins, and other physical scientists have piled evidence mountain high that heredity is a law attending progressive creation. It is progressive heredity which gives humanity their erect attitude, their power of motion, the organs of digestions, blood circulation, nerve force, muscular force, bone structure and a host of other faculties on the physical side. There are even more impressive facts concerning heredity of mind force. All these constitute what may be called your human heredity.
  2. But there is a heredity which the physical scientists have not compassed. It lies beneath and antecedent to all their researches. At a point where they throw up their hands not in joy, saying they cannot account for what they see, this divine heredity is found in full sway.
  3. It is the benignant force which decrees primal creation. It thrills down from the Divine, direct into every created being. It originates life, which the physical scientist has not done, nor ever can do. It stands out among all forces supreme, unapproachable. No human heredity can approach it. No human heredity measures up to it.
  4. This Infinite Life flows through you; is you. Its doorways are but the faculties which comprise your consciousness. To keep open these doors is the Secret of Power. It is worth while to make the effort.
  5. The great fact is, that the source of all life and all power is from within. Persons, circumstances and events may suggest need and opportunities, but the insight, strength and power to answer these needs will be found within.
  6. Go with the real thing. Build firm foundations for your consciousness upon forces which flow direct from the Infinite source, the Universal Mind of which you are the image and likeness.

  1. These are psychological facts; these thinking processes are reality and are certain; they are well known; in fact, they are so plain that everyone can understand them. The thing to do is to have a mental house-cleaning, and to have this house-cleaning every day, and keep the house clean. Mental, moral and physical cleanliness are absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.
  2. When this mental house-cleaning process has been completed, the material which is left will be suitable for the making of the kind of ideals or mental images which we desire to realize.
  3. There is a fine estate awaiting a claimant. Its broad acres, with abundant crops, running water and fine timber, stretch away as far as the eye can see. There is a mansion, spacious and cheerful, with rare pictures, a well-stocked library, rich hangings, and every comfort and luxury. All the heir has to do is to assert their heirship, take possession, and use the property. They must use it; they must maintain it in good condition; for use is the condition on which he holds it. To look after it is to win possession.
  4. In the domain of mind and spirit, in the domain of practical power, such an estate is yours. You are the heir! You can assert your heirship and possess, and use this rich inheritance. Power over circumstances is one of its fruits, health, harmony and prosperity are assets upon its balance sheet. It offers you poise and peace. It costs you only the labor of studying and harvesting its great resources. It recommends an investment, to gain your freedom, your liberty, your strength. It clothes you with self-honor, and puts a scepter in your hands.
  5. To gain this estate, three processes are necessary: You must earnestly desire it. You must assert your claim. You must take possession.
  6. You admit that those are easy conditions.

  1. This, then, is the way we are consistently creating and recreating ourselves; we are today the result of our past thinking, and we shall be what we are thinking today, the Law of Attraction is bringing to us, not the things we should like, or the things we wish for, or the things some one else has, but it brings us our own, the things which we have created by our thought processes, whether consciously or unconsciously. Fortunately, some of us are creating these things consciously.
  2. If either of us were building a home for ourselves, how careful we would be in regard to the plans; how we should study every detail; how we should watch the material and select only the best of everything; and how careful we should be when it comes to building our Mental Home, which is infinitely more important than any physical home, as everything which can possibly enter into our lives depends upon the character of the material which enters into the construction of our Mental Home.
  3. What is the character of this material? We have seen that it is the result of the impressions which we have accumulated in the past and stored away in our subconscious Mentality. If these impressions have been of love, of peace, of serenity, of calmness; if they have been cheerful, positive, certain, then the texture of the material which we are weaving today will be of the same positive material. It will be of great value, it will be fresh and ripe and will bring us only more relaxation and serenity and calmness. We shall be free because it will be of the finest quality.
  4. If we have stored away nothing but courageous thought, if we have been optimistic, positive, and have immediately made use of any kind of positive thought, have accepted to have everything to do with it, have accepted to associate with it and become identified with it in every way, what then is the result? Our mental material is now of the best kind; we can weave any kind of material we want; we can use any color we wish; we know that the texture is firm, that the material is solid, that it will always be vibrant, and we have love, calmness concerning the future; it is show worthy.
