"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter." Max Planck (Nobel Prize in Physics 1918)
Inspired by Abraham's words 'If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different, so that you can feel good...'
The Game of Life And How to Play It-Chapter 6-Casting the Burden By Florence Scovel Shinn
Impressing the Subconscious
When man knows his own powers and the workings of his mind, his great desire is to find an easy and quick way to impress the subconscious with good, for simply an intellectual knowledge of the Truth will not bring results.
In my own case, I found the easiest way is in "casting the burden."
A metaphysician once explained it in this manner. He said, The only thing which gives anything weight in nature, is the law of gravitation, and if a boulder could be taken high above the planet, there would be no weight in that boulder; and that is what Jesus Christ meant when he said: "My yoke is easy and my burden is light."
He had overcome the world vibration, and functioned in the fourth dimensional realm, where there is only perfection, completion, life and joy.
He said: "Come to me all ye that are labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." "Take my yoke upon you, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
For many years there has been an endless discussion as to the origin of evil. Theologians have told us that God is Love, and that God is Omnipresent. If this be true, there is no place where God is not. Where then is Evil, Satan and Hell? Let us see:
God is spirit. Spirit is the creative principle of the Universe. Man is made in the image and likeness of God. Man is therefore a spiritual being. The only activity which spirit possesses is the power to think. Thinking is therefore a creative process.
All form is therefore the results of the thinking process. The destruction of form must also be a result of the thinking processes. Fictitious representations of form are the result of the creative power of thought, as in Hypnotism. Apparent representations of form are the result of the creative power of thought, as in Spiritualism.
Invention, organization and constructive work of all kinds are the results of the creative power of thought, as in concentration. When the creative power of thought is manifested for the benefit of humanity, we call the results good. When the creative power of thought is manifested in a destructive or evil manner, we call the result evil.
This indicates the origin of both good and evil; they are simply words which has been coined in order to indicate the nature of the result of the thinking or creative processes.
Thought necessary precedes and predetermines action; action proceeds and predetermines condition. Part Twenty will throw more light upon this important subject.
