A PRINCIPLE THAT CAN BE PROVEN
Knowing that Mind is, we have a principle that is absolute, it is exact, it is going to correspond to our thinking about it. The first great necessity is to believe this, without belief we can do nothing. This is the reason Jesus said, “It is done unto you even as you have believed.” Always it is done unto people as they believe and there is something that does it which never fails.
We must believe that our word is formed upon and around by this creative Mind. For instance, we wish to create activity in our business, we believe that our word is law about that thing and there is something that takes our thought and executes it for us. If we have accepted the fact that all is mind and that the thought is the thing, we shall see at once that our word is the power behind the thing and that it depends upon the word or thought that we are sending out.
So plastic is mind, so receptive, that the slightest thought makes an impression upon it. People who think many kinds of thought must expect to receive a confused manifestation in their lives. If a gardener plants a thousand kinds of seeds, he will get a thousand kinds of plants, it is the same in mind.
