You MUST understand and accept this fact – that every “problem” has a Solution – as TRUE. If you do not accept this proposition as the Truth, the likelihood that you will realize the Solution is highly unlikely. Think about it: if you do not believe that there is a Solution to your dilemma, what are the chances that you will attempt to realize it? You won’t. And, your “problem” will remain unresolved and continue to fester. Follow and apply the Universal Ten-Step Technique outlined in this Post to Solve ANY Problem!
Starting with certain incontrovertible scientific facts, all these things logically follow, and that therefore, however far these speculations may carry us beyond our past experience, they nowhere break the thread of an intelligible connection of cause and effect. In “The Creative Process in the Individual,” Thomas Troward explains The Triumph of Principle Over Precedent – The Working Out of an IDEA to Its Logical Conclusions in Spite of the Accumulated Testimony of All Past Experience to the Contrary.
We cannot control the breezes of life – the unexpected favourable conditions – but we can make sure that we are in constant readiness to make best use of them. This readiness has various aspects and one of them is detailed knowledge of the safe harbours of life – the destinations where we wish life to lead us. If we seek to profit from circumstances then we have to have a clear vision of what it is that we actually want. Windows of opportunity can be brief so we need the courage and self confidence to act spontaneously when spontaneous action is called for.
Living on the Spiritual Side of your nature, You discover that You do not create anything. You merely become aware of That-Which-Already-Is. You stop trying to change your world by force, for You know that it is controlled by your attitude toward it. You know that what You release in Consciousness is expressed on the relative plane. Keeping your attention on the Truth of Being, You are not concerned with turmoil and trouble. You know “All things work together for good to them that love God.”
EVERYTHING THAT is in action must necessarily work through definite laws. And as the mind is in constant action, alternating its actions at almost every turn of thought or feeling, it is evident that a vast number of laws are employed by the mental process. To know how the mind works, therefore, we must know something about these laws.
THE PRINCIPLE reasons for failure are: Lack of confidence and too much effort. Many people block answers to their prayers by failing to fully comprehend the workings of their subconscious mind. When you know how your mind functions, you gain a measure of confidence. You must remember whenever your subconscious mind accepts an idea; it immediately begins to execute it. It uses all its mighty resources to that end and mobilizes all the mental and spiritual laws of your deeper mind.
You have within you a mighty power, anxious and willing to serve you, a power capable of giving you that which you earnestly desire. Regardless of the name of this Great Power, or the conscious admission of a God, the Power is capable and willing to carry to a complete and perfect conclusion every earnest desire of your objective mind, but you must be really earnest about what you want. If you are in earnest about changing your present condition, here is a concise, definite, resultful plan, with rules, explanations and suggestions.
Playing the “Blame Game,” i.e., assessing blame against others where: 1) the subject of our blame is truly not at fault and/or responsible and/or 2) the real responsibility lies within ourselves, is an absolute death knell to attaining Success and Growth. Successful individuals don’t blame. They accept responsibility for their Thoughts, Feelings, Decisions and Actions. There is huge Power in that – Power that can propel you to Success.
The exercise of the visualizing faculty keeps your mind in order, and attracts to you the things you need to make life more enjoyable in an orderly way. If you train yourself in the practice of deliberately picturing your desire and carefully examining your picture, you will soon find that your thoughts and desires proceed in a more orderly procession than ever before. In other words, when your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction.
Our Thought always continues to be creative; but in destructive use it becomes creative for destructive forces, and, since it has its origin in our own personality, we are certain sooner or later to feel its effects, on the principle that every action always produces a corresponding reaction. The Law knows nothing of persons, but acts automatically in strict accord with the nature of the Power which has set it in motion. Under negative conditions the great Law of the Universe becomes your adversary, and must continue to be so, until by your altered mode of Thought you put yourself in line with it.
Everything that you see or feel on the material plane, whether it is your body, your home, your business, or your city, is but the expression in the concrete of a mental equivalent held by you. Everything you see in the outer world is the precipitation on the physical plane of a mental equivalent held by you (and others) in the inner world. There is a mental equivalent of every object or occurrence on the physical plane. The secret of successful living is to build up the mental equivalent that you want; and to get rid of, to expunge, the mental equivalent that you do not want.
