The Octave is the starting-point of a new series reduplicating the starting-point of the previous series at a different level, just as does the octave note in music. This thonas is not yet tgomas on Listopia. The Spirit can never change its essential nature as the essence of Life, Love, and Beauty; and if we adopt these characteristics, which constitute the Law of the Spirit, as the basis of our own thinking, and reject all that is contrary to them, then we afford the broad generic conditions for the specialized thinking of the Spirit through our own minds: A special relation has been established between the Divine Spirit and the individual soul, one of absolute confidence and personal intercourse.
As Eastern and Western Scriptures alike tell us it is the breathing-forth of Original Spirit; and if you have followed what I have said regarding the reproduction of this Spirit in the individual–that by the very nature of the creative process the human mind must be of the same quality with the Divine Mind–then we find that a second mode of the Originating Spirit becomes possible, namely that of operation through the individual mind.
Thomas Troward – Dore Lectures on Mental Science
Neville Goddard Narrated by: There are no discussion topics on this book yet. These are not mere fancies but the expression of strictly scientific principles, in their application to the deepest problems of the individual life; and their basis is that each one’s world, whether in or out of the flesh, must necessarily be created by his own consciousness, and, in its turn, his mode of consciousness will necessarily take its colour front his conception of his relation to the Divine Mind– to the exclusion of light and colour, if he realizes no Divine Mind, and to their building up into forms of beauty in proportion as he realizes his identity of being with that All-Originating Spirit which is Light, Love, and Beauty in itself.
In this necessity of the case, then, we find the reason why the life, love, and beauty of the Spirit are not visibly reproduced in every human being. Now the relation of Christ to the “Father” is that of the Architypal Idea in the All-creating Mind of which I have previously spoken, and so we arrive at the conception of the Christ-idea as a universal principle, and as being an idea therefore capable of reproduction in the individual Mind, thus explaining St.
We are not losing our individuality, but are coming into fuller possession of ourselves by the conscious recognition of our personal share in the great work of creation. Now this is the position of the soul which is indicated by the name Hephzibah. It is that of Omega as it subsists enshrined in Alpha: If you are familiar with the great American mystic, this will be a goldmine of wisdom in one book.
But if we grasp the truth that the thing is already existent in the thought, do we not see that this transcendent Omega must be already existent in the Divine ideal of every one of us? This shows us that in essence the thing already existed in the thought. Thus the great creative work of Thought in each of us is to make us consciously “sons and daughters of the Almighty,” realizing that by our divine origin we can never be really separated from the Parent Mind which is continually seeking expression through us, and that any apparent separation is due to our own misconception of the true nature of the inherent relation between the Universal and the Individual.
To meet this requirement, therefore, there must be a forming power greater than that of our own unaided conceptions, and this is to be found in our realization of the Spirit as the Supreme Beauty, or Wisdom, moulding our thoughts and feelings into shapes harmoniously adjusted to the fullest expression, in and through us, of the Livingness which Spirit is in itself.
This is not a reward arbitrarily bestowed upon us for holding dogmatically to certain mere verbal statements, but it is the natural result of understanding the supreme law of our rtoward being. That is what makes the difference between our old thought and our new thought. It is the same method by which all scientific advance is made.

Consequently, if we look upon evil as a force to be reckoned with, and therefore requiring to be studied, we are in effect trowqrd it; while on the other hand if we realize that there is only ONE force to be considered, and that absolutely good, we are by the law of the creative process bringing that good into manifestation. But whether acting cosmically or personally it is always the same Spirit and therefore cannot lose its inherent character which is-that lectured the Power which creates ex nihilo.
Thomxs by the requirements of the case man should be capable of placing himself either in a positive or a negative relation to the Parent Mind, from which he originates; otherwise he would be nothing more than a clockwork figure. What makes the thing a success, so far as it goes, and what prevents it going further? Then, by carefully considering the nature of the affirmative factor, we see what sort of conditions to provide to enable it to express itself more fully.
He does not claim as a personal achievement what the Law does FOR him: With command of your creative powers you lecturs manifest your potential and offer unique things to the world that are waiting inside of you.
It is a thoroughly logical sequence of cause and effect, and what we require is to see more clearly the Law of this sequence and use it intelligently–that trowarrd why St.
As Neville taught with extraordinary originality, what you see as “natural” in your imagination is actualized in the world. John puts the question of Christ manifest in the flesh as the criterion of the whole matter I. The question, then, is, what is the principle by dorf we came into being?
The Doré Lectures on Mental Science by Thomas Troward
The process does not consist in the introduction of new elements, but in making new combinations of elements which are always present; just as our ancestors had no conception of carriages that could go without horses, and yet by a suitable combination of elements which were always in existence, such vehicles are common objects in our streets today.
This, by the hypothesis of the case, is true also of the Parent Mind, for at the stage where the initial movement of creation takes place, there are no existing conditions to compel action in one direction more than another. The principle is never new, for principles are eternal and universal; but the knowledge that the same principle will produce new results when working under new conditions is the key to the unfoldment of infinite possibilities. Chapters include Entering into the This book contains twelve lectures that reveal how one can use the power of the mind to effect natural laws of the universe in positive ways.
What is seeking for expression, then, is the perfect Livingness of the Spirit; and this expression is to be found, through ourselves, by means of our renewed mode of thought. The reason for this is one which I have sought to impress throughout these lectures, namely, that the specialization of a law is never the denial of it, but on the contrary the fuller recognition of its basic principles; and if this is the case in ordinary physical science it must be equally so when we come to specialize the great Law of Life itself.
He does not expect to find the starting point of the Creative Process reproduced within himself, and so he looks to the mechanical side of things for the basis of his reasoning about life. Refresh and try again. It is this self-recognition on our own part carried out to the sum total of all our relations, whether spiritual, intellectual, or physical, that constitutes our realization of life.
It will be quite clear as far as it goes. Thmoas work, literary, musical, or graphic is original creation on a miniature scale, and in this it differs from lecturea of the engineer, which is constructive, or that of the scientist which is analytical; for the artist in a sense creates something out of nothing, and therefore starts from the stand-point of simple feeling, and not from that of a pre-existing necessity.
This is the scientific method; it has proved itself true in respect of material things, and there is no reason why it should not be equally reliable in respect of spiritual things also.
