Asserting the Life-Force - Page 2

I want you to acquire this sense of conscious life so that you may manifest it in your life and show what Mental Science has done for you. I want you to get to work today and begin to make yourselves over according to the latest pattern. You can do this if you will only take the proper interest in the task.


Fix in your mind the thought that the "I" within you is very much alive and that you are manifesting life fully, mentally and physically. And keep this thought there, aiding yourself with constant repetitions of the watchword. Keep the thought in mind constantly. Keep it before the mental vision as much as possible. Repeat the watchword when you awaken in the morning - say it when you retire at night. And say it at meal times, and whenever else you can during the day - at least once an hour. Form the mental picture of yourself as filled with Life and Energy. Live up to it as far as possible. When you start in to perform a task say "I AM Alive" and mix up as much life as possible in the task. If you find yourself feeling not happy, say "I AM Alive," and then take a few deep breaths, and with each inhalation let the mind hold the thought that you are breathing in Strength and Life. Then finish up with an earnest, vigorous affirmation: "I AM Alive," and mean it when you say it too.

And let your thoughts take form in action. Take action showing that you are alive, prove it with your acts. Take an interest in doing things, and go around "beaming" and doing. Get down to business, and LIVE.

I have spoken to you of the advantage of doing what you Love. Now I wish to put LIFE into you. Go along with LIFE - have ambition - have energy - have vitality - have interest -  have life. This will do. You are thriving. Wake up and display a few signs of life! This is the place for wide-awake, active, live people, and a good general awakening is what is happening; some of the people have awakened and are going around telling others that they are alive, and that they are really alive to all that makes life worthwhile.

We must let Life flow through us, and allow it to express itself naturally. Do let the little serenities of life, and the big ones also, uplift you and cause you to gain vitality. Assert the Life Force within you, and manifest it in every thought, act and deed, and before long you will be exhilarated and fairly bubbling over with vitality and energy.

Put a little life into your work - into your pleasures - into yourself. Start doing things in a full-headed way, and begin to take an interest in what you are doing, saying and thinking. It is astonishing how much interest we may find in the ordinary things of life when we wake up. There are interesting things all around us - interesting events occurring every moment - we can be aware of them when we assert our life force and begin to actually live.

A person will amount to something when they put life into the tasks of everyday life - the acts - the thoughts. What the world needs is live people. Just look into the eyes of the people whom you meet, and see how many of them are really alive. Some of them have that expression of conscious life which distinguishes the person who lives.

The Law of Mental Control - Page 2

To those who are acquainted with the laws of mental control it seems natural for one to lie asleep at night after giving thanks for the best situations of the day, or more often, of the morrow. It is just as easy to slow down the mind as it is to slow down an engine, and thousands of people are learning to do this in these days of New Thought. The best way to do it is to think of something you want - as detailed as possible. There is use inviting a harmonious thought with the purpose of "uping" it - that is a great use of energy, and the more you keep on saying, "I will think of this thing!" the more it keeps on coming into your mind, for you are holding it there for the purpose of hitting it. Grab on to it; give it another thought; fix the mind on something you want, and keep the attention there by an effort of the will. A little practice will do much for you in this direction. There is only room for one thing at a time in the focus of attention; so put all your attention upon one thought. Try it for yourself.

YOUR thoughts can be faithful servants - just as you allow them to be. You have the say about it; take your choice. They will go about your work under direction of the firm will, doing it the best they know how, not only in your waking hours, but when you are asleep - some of our best mental work being performed for us when our conscious mentality is at rest, as is evidenced by the fact that when the morning comes we find situations have been worked out for us during the night, after we had dismissed them from our minds - apparently; and they will support us and serve us if we are smart enough to will them to do so. Some of the people of the world are masters of every thought which may see fit to visit them.

Your mind is given you for your good and for your own use. There are people who seem to realize this and who understand the art of managing the mind. The key to the mystery is Concentration. A little practice will develop within every person the power to use the mental machine properly. When you have some mental work to do concentrate only upon it, and you will find that the mind will get right down to business - to the work at hand - and matters will be cleared up in no time. There is a smoothness, and only required motion or power is employed. Every pound of energy is put to use, and every revolution of the mental driving wheel counts for something. It pays to be able to be a competent mental engineer.

And the person who understands how to run their mental engine knows that one of the important things is to be able to stop it when the work has been done. They stop putting coal in the furnace, and release the high pressure after the work is finished, or when the day's portion of the work has been done, and the fires should be banked until the next day. Some people stop the engine when there is no work to be done, and then they give thanks for the good working condition of the engine. These mental engines are fine machines, and need intelligent care.
