There is so much insight to the fantastic lesson this week. Quickly expanding on what we’ve learned so far. Here are my takeaways:
Idealization, visualization, materialization – I can be what I will to be!
Work is necessary – labor, hard mental labor, the kind of effort which so few are willing to put forth.
Before sowing any seed you want to know what the harvest is to be. If you are not sure, return to the chair daily until the picture becomes plain.
“In this way,” Tesla writes in the Electrical Experimenter. “I am enabled to rapidly develop and perfect a conception without touching anything. When I have gone so far as to embody in the invention every possible improvement I can think of, and see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete, the product of my brain. Invariably my devise works as I conceived it should; in twenty years there has not been a single exception.”
Faith – substance – concentration.
You must build it firmly and securely in your mental world, the world within, before it can take form in the world without, with over five million brain cells determining the methods to accomplish your thoughts.
Earnest Desire will bring about Confident Expectation, and this in turn must be reinforced by Firm Demand. The Earnest Desire is the feeling, the Confident Expectation is the thought, and the Firm Demand is the will. The law of Growth brings it into manifestation.
Most people want money, power, health and abundance, but they fail to realize that these are effects and can come only when the cause is found. Create ideals only, give no thought to external conditions, make the world within beautiful and opulent and the world without will express and manifest the condition which you have within. For instance, a man is in debt. He will be continually thinking about the debt, concentrating on it, and as thoughts are causes the result is that he not only fastens the debt closer to him, but actually creates more debt. He is putting the great law of Attraction into operation with the usual and inevitable result — Loss leads to greater “Loss.”
Concentrate on the things you want, not on the things you do not want. Think of abundance; idealize the methods and plans for putting the Law of Abundance into operation. Visualize the condition which the Law of Abundance creates; this will result in manifestation. We must plant the seed and leave it undisturbed, we will do more and better work then we have ever done before, new channels will constantly be provided, new doors will open; all that is necessary is to have an open mind, and be ready to act when the time comes.
Thought is the fire that creates the steam that turns the wheel of fortune.
For your exercise this week, visualize your friend, see him exactly as you last saw him, see the room, the furniture, recall the conversation, now see his face, see it distinctly, now talk to him about some subject of mutual interest; see his expression change, watch him smile. Can you do this? All right, you can; then arouse his interest, tell him a story of adventure, see his eyes light up with the spirit of fun or excitement. Can you do all of this?
If so, your imagination is good, you are making excellent progress.
Because “seeing” creates “feeling” and “feeling” creates “being.”
