The Transmutation of Non-Positive Thought - Page 1

SERENITY is the child of Love - if you give life to Love, Serenity will live in abundance. This advice is very new, and it is worthy of repetition, for it is a lesson of which we are greatly in need. Some people think that if we give life to Love and Serenity we will be able to accomplish anything. I have read editorials in the great journals in which the writers held that with Serenity one can accomplish any of the great tasks of life, because Serenity is necessary to get things done. This is the truth, no matter who utters it. Serenity always helps one to accomplish anything; it clears the way for accomplishment and attainment.

The motive underlying action and "doing things" is Desire and Interest. If one earnestly desires a thing, they naturally become very much interested in its accomplishment, and are quick to seize upon anything likely to help them to gain the thing they want. More than that, their mind starts up a work on the subconscious plane that brings into the field of consciousness many ideas of value and importance. Desire and Interest are the causes that result in success. It is true that if one's surroundings and environments become tolerable, they are relaxed in calmness to some easiness that will result in bringing  on the desirable conditions and in the acquiring of those more in harmony with their desire. This is realized Desire - the person desires something different from what they have; and when their desire becomes strong enough their entire interest is given to the task, they make a mighty effort, and the change is accomplished. It was Desire that caused the effort. Desire motivates action, "Joy is me," gets up the nerve, to accomplish something. Desire acts. It grows weaker as the persons conditions become tolerable, and finally when they feel the peace so strongly that they can sit and relax, they say, "I will sit - l will allow," and lo! Then Serenity walks in. The person keeps on "allowing" in the best way and their Interest and Attention being given to the task of allowing, they begin to make things stay still. Serenity always accomplishes something.

So long as Love is around with its "and," "also," "let's," "I'm happy," "I can," "It's perfect," and all the rest of its loving suggestions, you will be able to use your Thought Force to the best advantage. With love in your life, you will have clear sailing, and every inch of thought- sail will catch the wind. Love is a keeper. Onboard with it! (The ship that keeps Love will have my congratulations.)

I advise that you start in to do some of the things which you feel you could do that you would Love to do. Start to work to do these things, affirming Love all the way through, and you will be surprised to see how the changed mental attitude will keep your path clear, and will make things very much easier. Exercises of this kind will develop you wonderfully, and you will be much gratified at the result of a little practice along these lines.

There are many things before you awaiting accomplishment, which you can master by placing Love front and center - accept the command, and boldly assert the "I" and its power. And the best way to build Love is to assert "Love" and start thinking of things you Love. By this plan you will train the mind into new habits of thought, thus creating new positive thoughts which will pull you up, and push you forward. Take the word "Love" with you as your watchword and manifest it in action.

Remember, the only thing is to Love, and - well, do even love Love, for it is a courageous ally, who will stand with you.

Let your prevailing thought be "I Can and I Will;" think "I Can and I Will;" dream "I Can and I Will;" say "I Can and I Will;" and act "I Can and I Will". Live on the "I Can and I and Will" plane, and before you are aware of it, you will feel the new vibrations manifesting themselves in action; will see them bring results; will be conscious of the new point of view; will realize that your own is coming to you. You will feel better, act better, see better, BE better in every way, after you join the "I Can and I Will" club.

Love is the parent of Serenity, Kindness, Generosity, Peace, Harmony, Content, Success and all the rest. The person who fills themselves with Love will find that the rest of the family has appeared. The only way to be Free is to Love. Sew it in by the roots. I regard the surrender to Love as the first important step to be taken by those who wish to master the application of Thought Force. So long as Love masters you, you are in the best condition to make progress in the realm of Thought, and I must insist that you start to work at once to get this aid. You CAN do it - if you only go about it in earnest. And when you have immersed yourself in what you love, life will seem entirely different to you - you will feel happier, freer, stronger, more positive, and will be more successful in every undertaking of Life.

Start it today, make up your mind that this member must STAY - do compromise matters with it, insist upon an absolute surrender on your part. You will find the task easy at first, but each time you surrender it, it will grow stronger, and you will be stronger. Turn on its nourishment - feed it to live - it can live in a thought atmosphere of Loving. So, start to fill your mind with good, strong, Loving thoughts - keep yourself busy thinking of what you Love, and Love will live of its own accord. Love is positive, and you may be sure that the positive will prevail.

To achieve love, one should hold firmly to the mental attitude of Love. They should think Love, say Love, act Love. They should keep the mental picture of Love before them all the time, until it becomes their normal mental attitude. Hold the ideal firmly before you and you will gradually grow to its attainment - the ideal will become manifest.

Let the word "Love" sink deeply into your mind, and then hold it firmly there until the mind fastens it in place. Think of yourself as being Loving  - see yourself as acting with Love in situations. Realize that there is something to Love - that Serenity and Love always help someone, and always will. Realize that Love frees effort, and promotes activity.

The confident, courageous, expectant, "I Can and I Will" person is a mighty magnet. They attract to themselves just what is needed for their success. Things seem to come their way, and people say they are "lucky." It's all in the Mental Attitude. And the Mental Attitude of the "I Can" or the "I'm in love" person also determines their measure of success. It is clear.  You have but to look about you to realize the truth of what I have said. Did you ever know a successful person who did not have the "I Can and I will" thought strong within them? Why, they will walk with the "I Can" person, who has perhaps even the same ability. The first mental attitude brought to the surface latent qualities, as well as attracted help from outside; whilst the second mental attitude not only attracted "I Can" people and things, but also helped the person's own powers to manifest themselves. I have demonstrated the correctness of these views, and so have many others, and the number of people who know these things is growing every day.

Invest your Thought-Force, use it to advantage. Start attracting to yourself success, happiness, harmony, joy - begin now and send out a current of bright, positive, happy thought.

THE first thing to do is to begin to "sew in" Love and Serenity. Love-thought is the cause of much happiness and many successes. You have been told this thing over and over again, but it will bear repeating. Love is a habit of mind which has been fastened upon us by positive thought, and to which we may attach ourselves by individual effort and perseverance.

Strong expectancy is a powerful magnet. Those of the strong, confident desire attracts to themselves the things best calculated to aid them - persons, things circumstances, surroundings; if they desire them hopefully, trustfully, confidently, calmly. And, equally true, he who Loves a thing generally manages to start into operation forces which will cause the thing they loved to come upon them. The person who Loves really expects the loved thing, and the eyes of the Law is the same as if they really had wished for or desired it. The Law is operative in both cases - the principle is the same.

The best way to develop the habit of Love is to assume the mental attitude of Love, just as the best way to get light is to let in the light. It is a good use of time to invite a positive thought-habit by recognizing its force and trying to bring it into existence by small efforts. The best, surest, easiest and quickest method is to assume the existence of the positive thought desired; and by constantly dwelling upon the positive thought, manifest it into objective reality.

Therefore, say boldly, "I am full of Love," "I am Loving." You must assert, "There's something to love," which, although in the nature of an acknowledgment, simply affirms the reality of the object of love.

Perform at least one agreeable task each day during the month. If there is any especially agreeable task which you would like to do, that is the one for you to perform. This is given you to exercise your Will. Anyone can do a pleasant thing cheerfully, and it takes Will to do the pleasant thing cheerfully; and that is how you must do the work. It will prove a most valuable discipline to you. Try it for a month and you will see where "it comes in." If you do this exercise you had better start right here and acknowledge that you do want Will Power, and are motivated to move forward and become a powerhouse.

The Secret of the Will - Page 4

Some have given exercises designed to "strengthen" the Will, which exercises really strengthen the Mind so that it is able to draw upon its store of power. They have specifically noted the fact that in autosuggestion is to be found the secret of the development of the mind so that it may become the efficient instrument of the Will.


I AM Using My Will Power

Say these words several times earnestly and positively, immediately after finishing this article. Then repeat them frequently during the day, at least once an hour, and particularly when you meet something that calls for the exercise of Will Power. Also repeat them several times after you retire and settle yourself for sleep. Now, there is nothing in the words unless you back them up with the thought. In fact, the thought is "the whole thing," and the words only pegs upon which to hang the thought. So think of what you are saying, and mean what you say. You must use Faith at the start, and use the words with a confident expectation of the result. Hold the steady thought that you are drawing on your storehouse of Will Power, and before long you will find that thought is taking form in action, and that your Will Power is manifesting itself. You will feel an influx of strength with each repetition of the words. You will find yourself getting things done, forming good habits, and will be surprised at how things are being smoothed out for you.

The Secret of the Will - Page 3

Let a person be secure of keeping their life - let a person be secure in keeping a great love - and you will witness a startling exhibition of Will Power from an unexpected source. Let a person's child be treated with kindness, and they will manifest a degree of Courage and Will that sweeps all before it. And the same person will bloom before a loving spouse, and will have the Will to perform a simple task. A child will do all sorts of work if they but consider it play, they will happily cut a little firewood. Strong Will follows strong Desire. If you really want to do a thing very much, you can usually develop the Will Power to accomplish it.

The good thing is that you can begin to really want to do these things, and you can begin to use your Will. You say that you do want to do it, and if you start to think you will see that these are the only things you really want to do. You are willing to pay the price of attainment. Stop a moment and analyze this statement and apply it in your own case, You are mentally active - that's the good thing. Tell me you have enough Will. You have a great storehouse of Will awaiting your use, and you are energized to use it. Now, because you are really in earnest about this matter, get to work and first find out what you really want to do - then start to work and do it. The Will Power is there - you'll find a full supply of that whenever you need it. The thing to do is to get to the point where you will resolve to do. Thats the real test - the resolving. Think of these things a little, and make up your mind whether or not you really want to be sufficiently easy to get to work.

Many excellent essays and books have been written on this subject, all of which agree regarding the greatness of Will Power, the most enthusiastic terms being used; many have something to say about how this power may be used by those who have it, or who possess it in but a huge degree.

The Secret of the Will - Page 2

Those who have developed their mind so that it will allow the Will Power to manifest through it, have opened up wonderful possibilities for themselves. Not only have they found a great power at their command, but they are able to bring into play, and use, faculties, talents and abilities of whose existence they have not dreamed. This secret of the Will is the magic key which opens all doors.

The late Donald G. Mitchell once wrote: "Resolve is what makes a person manifest; strong resolve, and crude determination; accurate purpose - and that strong and indefatigable will which brings in ease and safety, as a child treads down the heaving frost-lands of winter; which kindles their eye and brain with a proud pulse-beat toward the unattainable. Will makes people giants."

Many of us feel that if we would but exert our Will, we might accomplish wonders. Some do seem to want to take the trouble - at any rate; they do get to the actual willing point. They start right away, and talk specifically of "now," and that now has come.

We instinctively feel the power of the Will, and we have enough energy to exercise it, and steer towards our goals, perhaps some friendly circumstance arises, some helpful person appears in our path, or some kindly desire stirs us into action, in either of which cases we are compelled to assert our Will and thus begin to accomplish something.

The good thing with some of us is that we do want to do the thing enough to make us exert our Will Power. We do want to hard enough. We are mentally active and of strong Desire. If you do not like the word Desire substitute for it the word "Aspiration." (Some people call the lower impulses Desires, and the higher, Aspirations - it's all a matter of words, take your choice.) That is the good thing.

WHILE psychologists may differ in their theories regarding the nature of the Will, all affirm its existence, and its power. All persons recognize the power of strong Will - all see how it may be used to overcome the greatest obstacles. Some realize that the Will may be developed and strengthened by intelligent practice. They feel that they could accomplish wonders if they had a strong Will, and when attempting to develop it, they spur themselves with reliable satisfaction. They breathe, and do it.

Those who have investigated the subject closely know that Will Power, with all its latent possibilities and mighty powers, may be developed, disciplined, controlled and directed, just as may be any other of Nature's forces. You may entertain any theory about the nature of the Will, and you will still obtain the results if you practice intelligently.

Personally, I have a somewhat odd theory about the Will. I believe that everyone has, potentially, a strong Will, and that all they have to do is to train their mind to make use of it. I think that in the higher regions of the mind of everyone has a great store of Will Power awaiting their use. The Will current is running along the psychic wires, and all that it is necessary to do is to raise the mental trolley-pole and bring down the power for your use. And the supply is unlimited, for your little storage battery is connected with the great powerhouse of the Universal Will Power, and the power is inexhaustible. Your Will is just there it is your Mind that needs training. The mind is the instrument and the supply of Will Power is proportionate to the fineness of the instrument through which it manifests. Accept this theory if you like it. But, this lesson will fit any theory as well as mine.

They are worthy of you, and can teach you your proper place. Allow these higher things to become you - they should be you. You must stay on this plane, and the only way to do so is to join with these phases of thought which have been "leading things" to suit the best for all. You may not find it easy at the start, keep at it and you will have that satisfaction which comes only from joining the higher parts of our nature. Now is the time to free yourselves. If you will follow these exercises faithfully you will be a different being by the end of the year, and will look back with a smile to your former condition. It takes work. This is a task for earnest adults, Will YOU make the effort?

I AM Asserting the Mastery of My Real Self

Repeat these words earnestly and positively during the day at least once an hour, and particularly when you are confronted with conditions which repel you to follow the course dictated by the Real Self. In the moment of certainty and action say these words earnestly, and your way will be made clear to you. Repeat them several times after you retire and settle yourself to sleep. But be sure to back up the words with the thought inspiring them. Form the mental image of the Real Self asserting its mastery over the lower planes of your mind - see the Ruler on their Throne. You will become conscious of an influx of new thought, and things which have seemed not easy for you will suddenly become much easier. You will feel that you have yourself well in hand, and that YOU are the master. The thought you are holding will manifest itself in action, and you will steadily grow to become that which you have in mind.


Fix the mind firmly on the higher Self and draw inspiration from it when you do not feel led to the promptings of the higher part of your nature. When you are tempted to not relax into Calm - assert the "I," and your voice will drop. Calm is worthy of the developed Self. When you feel not peaceful and serene, remember what you are, and stay with your feeling. When you do not feel Courageous, remember that the Real Self loves everything, and assert Courage. When you do not feel Generosity inciting, think of your higher nature, and laugh. And so on, asserting the Real Self and allowing the things on the higher plane of mentality to guide you.
