Desire is largely subconscious. Subconsciousness arouses the latent faculties of the mind and brings the object of conscious desire within reach. Spiritual Truth is the controlling factor to translate modes of thought into character and consciousness. Desire is the strongest mode of action.
All mental discovery and attainment are the result of desire plus concentration. Desire added to concentration will wrest any secret from Nature. Concentration is the transmutation of thoughts into practical values. It leads to intuitive perceptions and immediate insight and is equivalent to being a great actor forgetting oneself in the portrayal of his character, swaying the audience by the realism of the performance.
In experiencing great emotions that go with great thoughts, the mind is in a state where it appreciates the value of higher things. The spirit of initiative and originality is born. The value of concentration encourages decision of character. The mind becomes efficient and desire is the predominating force. The mind is an engine whose power is undreamed. Thought is an omnipotent power, the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring in form. Thought enables man to harness all other natural power.
Vibration is the action of thought. There is nothing mysterious concerning the power of thought. If we concentrate on some matter of importance, the intuitive power will set in operation. The mind absorbs the object of its attention. The mind gives it life and being. Help will come in the nature of information which will lead to success.
Strength is determined by mental attitude. Keeping the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form. Turn thought within to take hold of the basic principles, the heart, and the spirit of things. When we get to the heart of things, it is comparatively easy to understand and command them. Let thought dwell upon the object.
"Thought is the property of those only who can entertain it." - Emerson
