The power of thought
is the key to everything.
Among other spiritual qualities the power of thought is one of the most important. Thought is spiritual vibration, manifestation of intelligence, spiritual power. When the spirit reaches a certain degree of evolution based on multiple reincarnations, it feels the need to expand its knowledge, to widen the horizons of its intelligence, to strengthen more and more the moral principles perfected from incarnation to incarnation along the route of existence.
Thinking means reasoning, creating images, conceiving ideas, building for the present and for the future. Through thought and thus the power of thought, man makes decisions, creates solutions, discovers and resolves life's problems. Like sound and light,
Thought travels all over in vibratory waves which are recorded in the infinite ocean of matter filling the Universe. Our lives are like books being written and the whole process of evolution, through the law of reincarnation, is faithfully imprinted in our Book of Life. Good and bad deeds, vile as well as elevated thoughts, all are indelibly recorded there. Thought precedes action. Therefore, all dignified or undignified actions are the result of dignified or undignified thoughts.
It is the difference between success and failure.
The power of thought is the key to everything. A thought remains connected to its source as long as the feeling that generated it persists. Thoughts set up real environmental climates which promote good health or disease, joy or sorrow, success or failure, well or ill-being. Thoughts form currents crossing in all directions, and are sent out both by human beings and those who have already died physically and live only with their astral bodies. Many of these currents, besides being unwholesome, are terribly overwhelming. Due to the marked spiritual inferiority with which Earth's atmosphere is saturated, they often predominate over beneficial currents. Through ill thoughts man not only conveys but also picks up, with the same intensity, affinitive thoughts and their effects, whether he likes it or not. Such currents produce the most serious damages consisting of physical as well as psychic disturbances. That's why it is of utmost importance to use the power of thought for good.
Discipline and will-strengthening play a fundamental role in thought control. By learning how to strengthen himself with worthy feelings, man creates around himself a fluidic barrier so solid that malignant thoughts are unable to break through.
The power of thought associated with determination is essential for good making decisions. Thought of fear and indecision lead to failure. Reasonably optimistic thinking should always prevail. Combined with action, it is a force capable of overcoming the most serious stumbling blocks. Thoughts of virtue, courage, and determination attract vibrations of other thoughts of identical formation, thus creating an environment of confidence capable of leading to success. This is the reason the power of thought for common good, should be cultivated and developed by everybody.
In the book Christian
Rationalism from which part of this site is based, there is a chapter called
"Synthesis of Rationalistic Principles" which are behavioural guidelines and principles suited for each occasion in life, to ensure success in life and good spiritual attendance. Among those principles we would like to emphasize the ones related to the Power of thought.
