Harmony in the world within means the ability to control your thoughts and to determine for yourself how any experience is to affect you.
You are related to the world without by the Objective Mind. The brain is the physical organ of this mind.
You are related to the world within by the Subconscious Mind. The solar plexus is the organ of this mind. This system of nerves presides over all subjective sensations, such as joy, fear, love, anger, and imagination.
The Universal Mind is that consciousness pervading the entire universe, occupying all space and being the same in kind in every point of existence. It is . . .
. . . all powerful . . .
. . . all wisdom . . .
. . . and always present.
It is all in all.
Through the Subconscious Mind you are connected to Universal Mind — and in this way you are brought into relation with the . . .
. . . infinite constructive forces of the Universe.
Your consciousness is part of Universal Consciousness like a drop of water is part of the ocean: It is like in kind, but it is not “the ocean.” The consciousness that focuses in your brain cells is the same consciousness that focuses in the brain cells of everyone else.
Thus, each one of us is but an individualization of the Universal.
The world within is the cause.
The world without is the effect.
To change the effect you must change the cause.
Most people attempt to change effects by working with effects and they keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. The effects — or the focusing of thoughts on the effects — keep producing more of the same effects.
Understanding this gives you the power to control the effects in your life. By substituting abundance for poverty . . .
. . . health for sickness . . .
. . . wisdom for ignorance . . .
. . . harmony for discord . . .
. . . and freedom for tyranny . . .
. . . you create the outcomes in your life that you want and desire.
The world within is the universal fountain of supply.
The world without is the outlet of that stream.
Your ability to receive depends upon your recognition of this Universal Fountain. This recognition is a mental process.
You live in a fathomless sea of plastic mind substance that is ever alive and active. It takes form according to your mental demand. Thought forms the mold that will be expressed in your life.
Thought, therefore, becomes reality.
As your recognition of this process grows, you will better be able to control the outcomes in your life and thus attain the things you want.
Great people connect with the Universal Mind because the rewards are incredible.
