Chapter 10 - Practical Application of the Principle - p.157
The basic principle of Divine Science is the principle of atonement,
the unity of God and His creation. ---Cramer
A deviation from principle is the only adversary of Truth. ---Cramer
Everyone's work of Truth should be commenced just where he is regardless of conditions and surroundings. Begin to think and speak Truth for yourself without even pausing to take a glance at what has seemed to be obstacles. The first step for the student of Truth to take is to put away the belief of an evil power and take his or her stand on the foundation of Oneness, that Good alone is real and is all there is. Then by forming all conclusions from that basis, permanent unfoldment of knowledge and power is assured.
There are three steps in the understanding of any principle that is new to anyone's thinking: First, it must be perceived; then, it must be accepted; and last, it must be applied. Truth is not theory merely but practice also. Truth may be applied in every situation, and one attraction of New Thought for this practical age is that its theory is demonstrable.
