From the introduction of chapter two of The Master Key system we learn that our thoughts are a form of energy.
“Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power. This is the power which is being used by those who do not believe in the virtue of poverty, or the beauty of self-denial. They perceive that this is the talk of weaklings.
The ability to receive and manifest this power depends upon the ability to recognize the Infinite Energy ever dwelling in man, constantly creating and recreating his body and mind, and ready at any moment to manifest through him in any needful manner. In exact proportion to the recognition of this truth will be the manifestation in the outer life of the individual.”
The two modes of mental activity are Conscious and subconscious and ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which we cease to depend upon the conscious mind.
The value of the subconscious is enormous; it guides us, warns us, it controls the vital processes and is the seat of memory.
The conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination; it has the power of reasoning; it is the seat of the will and may impress the subconscious. Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will. The subconscious can be impressed by mentally stating what is wanted.
If the desire is in harmony with the forward movement of the great Whole, forces will be set in motion which will bring about the result. Our environment reflects conditions corresponding to the predominant mental attitude which we entertain.
The name of this law is The Law of Attraction. Thought is a creative energy, and will automatically correlate with is object and bring it into manifestation.
