INDIVIDUAL USE OF UNIVERSAL POWER
Question—How is it that an individual which is only a part of the Whole, can direct this Universal Power?
ANSWER—Just as an individual who is only part of the Whole can breathe the wholeness of the air and partake of the wholeness of the sunshine. Just as a mathematician who is not the principle of mathematics but who is in unity with it, has access to the totality of numbers.
INDIVIDUALITY OF THE SOUL
Question—In the ultimate, can any outside force of any other personality or even oneself, harm his soul?
ANSWER—In the long run nothing can harm the soul. In the long run it is bound to arrive. It is a part of God individualized and it must return to its source in full possession of its individuality. We can hasten this completion by conscious choice and co-operation with the law.
HOW TO CONCENTRATE
Question—I have a lot of day dreams, but seem to lack will power, or mental consent to carry them into action.
ANSWER—Will is a directive force, and when thus used it becomes the instrument through which divine energy is directed. Teaching oneself how to meditate and how to concentrate takes as much practice as that required for any other accomplishment—IT IS NOT DONE OVER NIGHT. Each day, without fail, give time to meditation—sit quietly— forget everything that suggests chaotic conditions or personal
(page 52) dilemma. Each time a negative thought presents itself to you discard it from your mind. Do not be discouraged if at first your mind seems to wander—persistently put every diverse thought out of your mind until you have formed the habit of controlling your own mental action. Know that perfect order and harmony in your affairs is your birthright and CLAIM IT NOW.
Treat something like this: "Divine Mind within me knows all things. It knows the answer to my problem and this Mind makes me know consciously just what action to take. I listen for the inner guidance, and I do make the right decision, and that which is for my highest good is now manifesting in all of my affairs. I know that the Spirit of Infinite Goodness harmonizes into right action everything in my affairs, and that absolute Intelligence controls every act of my life."
