“You are in physical existence to learn and understand that your energy, translated into feelings, thoughts and emotions, causes all experience. There are no exceptions.
Once you understand this you have to learn to examine the nature of your beliefs, for these will automatically cause you to think and feel I certain fashions. Your emotions follow your beliefs. It is not the other way around.
In a manner is speaking, the conscious mind is a window through which you look outward – and looking outward, perceive the fruits of your inner mind. Often you let false beliefs blur your great vision.
If you dwell upon limitations, then you will meet them. You must create a new picture in your mind. It will differ from the picture your physical senses may show you at any time, precisely in those areas where changes are required. Hatred of war will not ring peace. Only love of peace will bring about those conditions.
Realise that your physical experience and environment is the materialisation of your beliefs. If you find great exuberance, health, effective work, abundance, smiles on the faces of those you meet, then take it for granted that your beliefs are beneficial. But if you find poor health, a lack of meaningful work, a lack of abundance, a world of sorrow and evil, then assume that your beliefs are faulty and begin examining them.
You are a sender and a receiver. Because ideas have an electromagnetic reality, beliefs, because of their intensity, radiate strongly. Due to the organising structure of your psychological nature, similar beliefs congregate, and you will readily accept this with which you already agree. Limiting ideas therefore predispose you to accept others of a similar nature. Exuberant ideas of freedom, spontaneity and joy automatically collect others of their kind also.”
