The ‘Temple of the Living God” and the individual “I” is given control and upon his understanding of the mechanism which is within his control will the result depend. Another reference to the great ‘I Am’? God is love and he is within each of us. “All life and all power is from within.” God has granted us the power to control the world within so that we may have great influence and control on the world without.
“And as the most powerful forces of Nature are the invisible forces, so we find that the most powerful forces of man are his invisible forces, his spiritual force, and the only way in which the spiritual force can manifest is through the process of thinking. Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses, and thought is the only product of thinking.
Addition and subtraction are therefore spiritual transactions; reasoning is a spiritual process; ideas are spiritual conceptions; questions are spiritual searchlights and logic, argument and philosophy is spiritual machinery.
Every thought brings into action certain physical tissue, parts of the brain, nerve or muscle. This produces an actual physical change in the construction of the tissue. Therefore, it is only necessary to have a certain number of thoughts on a given subject in order to bring about a complete change in the physical organization of a man.
This is the process by which failure is changed to success.
“Thought is mind in motion just as wind is air in motion. Since thoughts are causes, conditions must be effects; if we can control the cause we can also control the effect.” Certainly, all men are innately aware of this on some level? Or is this too much for us to be accountable and responsible for in our own great yet short lives? Perhaps it is that we truly are just as marvelous as we suspect but are afraid of the true power we know we possess within? “God’s gift to us is life; what we do with it is our gift to him.”
