Discover a Richer Life : Using the Law of Mind; A Response to Every Thought – 10/14/2013
There is a Law of Mind in action, Intelligence taking form through Law; and Its action in our experience can only be a result of motivation by our thought.
This probably confuses many, for most people are a little bit superstitious when they come to think of things spiritual, not realizing that everything in the universe has to be governed by law and order; that there would have to be laws of Mind or Spirit, just as there are physical laws. This is why Jesus said it is done unto us as we believe. There is something that does it, but only as we believe; therefore it responds to us by corresponding with our acceptance of it. Now at first this seems a little difficult and hard to accept and it looks as though we couldn’t understand it; but what do we really understand? We do not understand how acorns become oak trees, we do not understand anything other than the way nature works. The why and how, science, philosophy, and religion know nothing about, and these are the only avenues of knowledge we have. if, then we had the same faith in spiritual law that we do and must have in everything we deal with in nature we would have perfect faith, because we wouldn’t doubt and seeming miracles would happen every day.
