Week 13: We can best conserve our interests by recognizing the Infinite Power and Infinite Wisdom of the Universal Mind, and in this way become a channel whereby the Infinite can bring about the realization of our desire. This means that recognition brings about realization; therefore for your exercise this week make use of the principle, recognize the fact that you are a part of the whole, and that a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole; the only difference there can possibly be is in degree.
When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I,” the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that it is the same in substance , in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one” and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal.
“We have come to know that thinking is a spiritual process, that vision and imagination preceded action and event, that the day of the dreamer has come.” Charles F. Haanel
Week 14: For your exercise this week, concentrate on Harmony, and when I say concentrate, I mean all that the world implies; concentrate so deeply, so, earnestly, that you will be conscious of nothing but harmony.
Note: Remember, we learn by doing. Reading these lessons will get you nowhere. It is in the practical application that the value consists.
Here you will begin to reach conclusions as to your unity with the Universe. You will come to understand that based on the power of your thoughts you can create anything that you so desire. You will come to realize that every cause has an effect, and that the causes are brought about from your thoughts. You will conclude that you are consciousness itself and must be conscious of your words and thoughts that are producing the effects in your life.
Week 15: For your exercise this week, concentrate on Insight; take your accustomed position and focus the thought on the fact that to have a knowledge of the creative power of thought does not mean to possess the art of thinking. Let the thought dwell on the fact that knowledge does not apply itself. That our actions are not governed by knowledge, but by custom, precedent and habit. That the only way we can get ourselves to apply knowledge is by a determined conscious effort. Call to mind the fact that knowledge unused passes from the mind, that the value of the information is in the application of the principle; continue this line of thought until you gain sufficient insight to formulate a definite program for applying this principle to your own particular problem.
Think truly, and thy thought shall the world’s famine feed; speak truly, and each word of thine shall be a fruitful seed; live truly, and thy life shall be a great and noble creed.
