Knowledge is power……or so they say. Personally, I never agreed with that statement. The use of knowledge is power. Words are tools of knowledge. The use of words are also powerful. They evoke emotions of happiness or reduce us to tears. They motivate to new heights or leave us with disgust. Words cannot evoke those emotions without knowledge and knowledge is a product of our thoughts. Therefore it is the thought that is the power. It is dynamic thought that makes us powerful.
Part 19 tells of the search for truth. Truth is another name for ultimate cause. If we can find the truth we shall have found the cause for every effect. Having found the cause we are in a position to control the effect. Hansel states that all things are finally resolvable into one thing. As they are thus translatable they must always be in relation and can never be in opposition to one another. He explains that a knowledge of this primary substance is power; it explains that a knowledge of cause and effect is power, that wealth is the offspring of power, that events and conditions are significant only as they effect power, and finally that all things represent certain forms and decrees of power. It tells of a certain form of power which can control every other power, why it is superior and how we may make use of this superior power.
We speak of Mind and Matter as two separate entities, but clearer insight makes it evident that there is but one operative principle and that is Mind. Mind is the real and the eternal. Matter is forever changing; we see the giant mountain and are told that the place where it now stands was once a lake; and as we stand in awe before the great cliffs in the Yosemite Valley we can easily trace the path of the glaciers which carried all before them.
If your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.
Just as the flow of electricity follows natural laws so too does the flow of thought follow the same natural law. Controlling these thoughts and strengthening them with continuous vibrations in silent thought allows us to achieve any and all desires. Let me repeat! Out thoughts focused and stimulated with the proper vibrations allow us to achieve any and all desires!
