Creative Mind cannot force itself upon us because we have the power of self-choice. It recognizes us when we recognize it. When we think that we are limited or have not been heard, it must take that thought and bring it into manifestation for us.
When we look about us and see nature so beautiful, so lavish and so limitless, when we realize that something, some power, is behind all and sees to it that plenty obtains everywhere, so that in all things manifest there is more than could be used and when on the other hand we see humans so limited, sick, sad and needy. We are disposed to ask this question “Is God good after all? Does He really care for the people of His creation? Why am I sick? Why am I poor?” Little do we realize that the answer is in our own mouths, in the creative power of our own thought. The average person when told the Truth will still seek some other way.
God has already done for us, in a mechanical way, all that He can do and having been given the ability, we will have to do for ourselves the rest. Yet the Great Power is always near, ready at any time to help but we must use it according to its own nature in harmony with its laws. We should learn that we ourselves are the center of this Divine activity. Realizing this, we must seek more and more to utilize our own Divine nature and by so doing we will come more fully under the protection of the great laws that govern all life, manifest and unmanifest. Whatever man is, he must find that because he is made out of God, he must be of the same nature. This Infinite One cannot know anything outside of itself, anything that would be a contradiction of its Divine nature. The human ignorance of his real nature binds him with his own freedom until he comes to see things as they really are and not as they appear to be.
In the Infinity of mind, which is the principle of all metaphysics and of all life, there is nothing but mind and that which mind does. That is all there is in the Universe. That is all there ever was or ever will be. This mind is acted upon by our thought and so our thought becomes the law of our lives. It is just as much a law in our individual lives as God’s thought is in the larger life of the Universe.
For the sake of clearness, think of yourself as in this Mind, think of yourself as a center in it. That is your principle. You think and Mind produces the thing. One of the big points to remember is that we do not have to create, all that we have to do is to think. Mind, the only Mind that there is, creates.
Few people seem to understand the nature of the law and so think that they have got to do something, even if it is only holding a thought, thinking or knowing is what does the thing. It will make it much easier for us when we realize that we do not have to make anything, just to know that there is something back of the knowing which does the work for us.
That person gets the best results who realizes that he can use this divine principle, he who can get the clearest concept of his idea and who can rely on mind to do for him, keeping everything out of his thought that would contradict the supremacy of Spirit or Mind. By simply holding a thought we could not make anything but by knowing in mind what cannot we do?
