In this part we find that we may freely choose what to think but the result of our thought is governed by an immutable Law! Is this not a wonderful thought?
Is it not wonderful to know that our lives are not subject to caprice variability of any kind? That they are governed by Law… This is our opportunity, because by complying with the law we can secure the desired effect with invariable precision…
Thought result in action, if our thoughts are constructive and harmonious, the result will be good; if our thoughts are destructive or inharmonious, the result will be evil..
There is therefore only one law, one principle, one cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or non-compliance with this law..
The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony..
4. We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought. It’s manifestation in the objective world will be a benefit, not only to yourself, but to all whom it may effect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; is is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit a hundred fold…
19. You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought.
20. Real power comes from within.. All power that anybody can possibly use is within man, only waiting to be brought into visibility by first recognizing it, and then affirming it as is, working it into our consciousness until we become one with it…
Making this our mindset takes work and effort. The only person that can realize this is ourselves.
Awareness is the beginning of change… More simply, we are aware of our thoughts that need changing… Change is the only constant in the universe!
