BONDAGE AND FREEDOM
Never get away from the fact that you are surrounded by such a power, it is the principle of demonstration. It knows every thought. As we send forth our thought into it, it does unto us. The person who is ignorant of this law must by that ignorance be bound by his thought, by his human beliefs. One who understands will begin to break these ties that bind him. One by one he will destroy every negative thought until at last he is able to think what he wants to think and so he frees himself by the use of the same power that at one time bound him. We must destroy all thought that we would not see manifest and hold to that which we would see, until we receive the affirmative answer.
Never struggle, Mind makes things out of Itself, there is no effort made. Don’t think that there is so much to be overcome. Have only a calm sense of perfect peace as you realize that God is all and that you are using the perfect law and that nothing can hinder it from working for you. Many people are learning to do this and no one has yet failed to demonstrate who has been steadfast, using the law in a consistent and persistent trust.
All that we have to do is to provide the right mental and spiritual attitude of mind and then believe that we already have and the reward will be with us. We shall see it. The time will come when we will not have to demonstrate at all because we will be always living so near to the law that it will do all for us without much conscious thought on our part.
So when you say, “I am poor, sick or weak. I am not one with the Creative Mind,” you are using that creative power to keep yourself away from the Infinite and just as soon as you declare that you are one with God, there is a rushing out to meet you, as the Father rushed out to meet the prodigal son. “The Spirit seeketh” but as long as your mind thinks in the terms of conditions you cannot overcome. The difficulty comes from our inability to see our own Divine nature and its relation to the Universe. Until we awake to the fact that we are one in nature with God, we will not find the way of life until we realize that our own word has the power of life we will not see the way of life and this brings us to the consideration of the use of the Word in our lives.
