INTRODUCTION – PART SIX

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 infringe upon the rights of others, we become moral thorns
and find ourselves entangled 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 hindrance is erroneous and fixed 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, but this does not mean that the
Universal will change its modus operandi to suit us or our ideas, but it does mean that 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.

PART SIX

  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 not only all intelligence but 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 he 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
    whichthis 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, but most of us are content to remain in absolute
    ignorance of the greatest piece of mechanism which as ever come into existence,
    the brain of man.
  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.
  9. 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.

  1. 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.
  2. There is not a single virtue or principle in the storehouse of nature which the brain
    cannot express. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 is a mantle of beauty.
  5. This then is the “Temple of the living God” and the individual “I” is given control
    and upon his understanding of the mechanism which is within his control will the
    result depend.
  6. Every thought sets the brain cells in action; at first the substance upon which the
    thought is directed fails to respond, but if the thought is sufficiently refined and
    concentrated, the substance finally yields and expresses perfectly.
  7. This influence of the mind can be exerted upon any part of the body, causing the
    elimination of any undesirable effect.
  8. A perfect conception and understanding of the laws governing in the mental world
    cannot fail to be of inestimable value in the transaction of business, as it develops
    the power of discernment and gives a clearer understanding and appreciation of
    facts.
  9. The man who looks within instead of without cannot fail to make use of the
    mighty forces which will eventually determine his course in life and so bring him
    into vibration with all that is best, strongest and most desirable.

  1. 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
    man or woman, and is the very highest personal accomplishment which can be
    acquired.
  2. 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.
  3. So with the power of thought; let power be dissipated by scattering the thought
    from one object to another, and no result is apparent; but focus this power through
    attention or concentration on any single purpose for any length of time and
    nothing becomes impossible.
  4. A very simple remedy for a very complex situation, some will say. All right, try
    it, you who have had no experience in concentrating the thought on a definite
    purpose or object. Choose any single object and concentrate your attention on it
    for a definite purpose for even ten minutes; you cannot do it; the mind will
    wander a dozen times and it will be necessary to bring it back to the original
    purpose, and each time the effect will have been lost and at the end of the ten
    minutes nothing will have been gained, because you have not been able to hold
    your thought steadily to the purpose.
  5. It is, however, through attention that you will finally be able to overcome
    obstacles of any kind that appear in your path onward and upward, and the only
    way to acquire this wonderful power is by practice — practice makes perfect, in
    this as in anything else.
  6. In order to cultivate the power of attention, bring a photograph with you to the
    same seat in the same room in the same position as heretofore. Examine it closely
    at least ten minutes, note the expression of the eyes, the form of the features, the
    clothing, the way the hair is arranged; in fact, note every detail shown on the
    photograph carefully. Now cover it and close your eyes and try to see it mentally;
    if you can see every detail perfectly and can form a good mental image of the
    photograph, you are to be congratulated; if not, repeat the process until you can.
  7. This step is simply for the purpose of preparing the soil; next week we shall be
    ready to sow the seed.
  8. It is by such exercises as these that you will finally be able to control your mental
    moods, your attitude, your consciousness.

  1. Great financiers are learning to withdraw from the multitude more and more, that
    they may have more time for planning, thinking and generating the right mental
    moods.
  2. Successful businessmen are constantly demonstrating the fact that it pays to keep
    in touch with the thought of other successful business men.
  3. A single idea may be worth millions of dollars, and these ideas can only come to
    those who are receptive, who are prepared to receive them, who are in successful
    frame of mind.
  4. Men are learning to place themselves in harmony with the Universal Mind; they
    are learning the unity of all things; they are learning the basic methods and
    principles of thinking, and this is changing conditions and multiplying results.
  5. They are finding that circumstances and environment follow the trend of mental
    and spiritual progress; they find that growth follows knowledge; action follows
    inspiration; opportunity follows perception; always the spiritual first, then the
    transformation into the infinite and illimitable possibilities of achievement.
  6. As the individual is but the channel for the differentiation of the Universal, these
    possibilities are necessarily inexhaustible.
  7. Thought is the process by which we may absorb the Spirit of Power, and hold the
    result in our inner consciousness until it becomes a part of our ordinary
    consciousness. The method of accomplishing this result by the persistent practice
    of a few fundamental principles, as explained in this System, is the master-key
    which unlocks the storehouse of Universal Truth.
  8. The two great sources of human suffering at present are bodily disease and mental
    anxiety. These may be readily traced to the infringement of some Natural Law.
    This is, no doubt, owing to the fact that so far knowledge has largely remained
    partial, but the clouds of darkness which have accumulated through long ages are
    beginning to roll away and with them many of the miseries that attend imperfect
    information.
    “That a man can change himself, improve himself, re-create himself, control his

environment, and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide-
awake to the power of right thought in constructive action.” – Larson
