THE SILENCE: What It Is, How To Use It
Approach to the Silence
Wrong thinking produces inharmony in our body, which in turn produces
sickness. Our bodies sometimes are instantly re-harmonized while in the
Silence. In the Silence our minds become passive, open, free and
loving, at which time the Infinite Master of harmony touches the mental
chords of our being and we are well.
Just as the piano can be tuned, so can the mind. Man's body is made up
of twelve octaves the same as in music. All matter is music. All matter
is composed of twelve octaves. Wrong thinking brings inharmony in some
of the octaves of our body. Right thinking tunes these organs, puts
them back into their normal condition.
Boys have their little steel magnets by which they pick up small pieces
of steel, pins and so forth. When overworked, these magnets no longer
attract. Then the boys take their magnets, have them rubbed against
strong magnets or remagnetized with an electric current and their power
is quickly restored—so with our bodies. Mind is the re-electrifier and
re-harmonizer of the octaves into all harmony.
Right thinking, therefore, is the most important thing in life. As a
man thinketh in his heart so is he. Just as a tuning fork near a piano
will respond with a vibration when a key of the same pitch is struck on
the piano nearby, so likewise do the bodies of men respond to proper
stimulus and become in tune. By right thinking man can re-harmonize
himself, can achieve health, success and prosperity.
To enter the Silence one must first establish perfect relaxation in
mind and body. Then as the consciousness is brought from one part of
the body to another the tuning takes place.
If the leader in the Silence should be intoning, there will be many in
the audience who will feel tinkling sensations—vibrations—and often
are instantly healed. They have been instantly re-harmonized. Sometimes
it may take several intonings in the Silence for a complete healing.
Should you have a violent vibration, feel no fear, but thank God for
your healing because the more violent the vibration perhaps the worse
has been your condition and the more surely has the re-harmony begun.
Some people will feel this vibration for hours, even days, throughout
which there is always healing.
Others may not feel the vibration at all, yet if there has been any
inharmony in the bodily organs, these organs are unconscious to the
conscious intoning re-harmonization. Many people who have been healed
of divers and many malignant diseases were at no time conscious of any
vibration. Never be discouraged if you feel no sensation. If you do
feel a vibration, know that you are susceptible and on the high road to
a healing demonstration.
The one intoning may or may not be feeling vibrations. Religion is the
life of God in the soul of Man. The Silence is the medium by which the
life of God and the soul of man are brought into At-one-ment.
The Silence is a medium by which man comes in a closer touch with the
Infinite; a medium by which man becomes conscious of his nearness to
the Infinite. The Silence is the meeting place where man's spirit links
with God's spirit; where spirit meets spirit and the marvel of His
grace never ceases.
The Silence is another way of praying, which is another way of
concentration. It is another way of visualization.
"As a man thinketh in his heart so is he." In the Silence a man can by
his thoughts change his life, his conditions, his environment, his all.
By right thinking man becomes harmonious. A harmonious man—in tune
with the Infinite—is on the King's highway to health, success,
abundance, prosperity, happiness, love and peace.
By means of wrong thinking our minds are put out of harmony with the
great Infinite spirit of God. "As a man thinketh in his heart so is
he." When wrong thinking becomes right thinking, then man's right
relationship to God is restored. He becomes an open channel for the
influx of the spirit so that whatever demonstration he may desire he
In the Silence a man may change his thinking as in no other way,
therefore, may change his heart, change his whole being, change his
environment, change every condition to which he was subject.
The human body may be likened to a harp. When man thinks rightly his
body is in tune; but wrong thinking creates inharmony in the body and
produces sickness. Wrong thinking produces inharmony in the mind,
which, of course, disconnects man from rightful association with the
Divine. A man must, therefore, think right. Yet, because of centuries
of erroneous conception of God and of the world, man has been a
negative instead of a positive being, and his unwisdom has reacted upon
the present generation.
We are mental sending and receiving stations. What we receive depends
upon how we are thinking Now. For success, health and happiness we must
in the silent chambers of the soul change our thinking if we are
holding negative or inharmonious thoughts. In the Silence there is
presented to man his greatest opportunity to change his thinking. Wrong
thinking produces inharmony of the body which in turn produces
sickness. If we change to right thinking we have health, success and
happiness. Therefore the Silence when properly used re-harmonizes our
bodies and minds through the simple agency of right thinking.
"There are steps of approach to the Silence. Stillness is one thing and
the Silence is another. One may quiet himself physically and not be
still, and he may be still without entering the Silence. When one
becomes physically and mentally at rest, he is apt to become receptive
to psychic influences; and when these are not desired it is advisable
to protect oneself while mentally negative. One may affirm his Oneness
with God, his being surrounded and protected by the divine Goodness,
and may symbolize this by enveloping himself in thought with the white
light of love or the mellowed tints of sunshine.
"With the senses calmed and unresponsive to the slower vibrations, but
responsive to the quicker ones, a peace and calm pervade one's mind,
and it becomes consciously receptive to higher vibrations of vital
energy. Immune from the lesser harmonies, one opens himself to the
greater ones, which are always seeking avenues of expression. With the
greater influx of the One Life, a sense of power steals over one and he
becomes conscious of increased vigor and vitality.
"In relinquishing specific thoughts, one opens inwardly rather than
outwardly, and becomes receptive to subconscious impressions that are
directed by his conscious affirmation of fundamental Truth. The
subconscious responds by returning to the conscious the logical
sequences of the Truths that have been consciously impressed upon it.
The subconscious follows the lead given to it by the conscious
affirmations of Truth, and it brings back the consciousness of those
Truths in their various ramifications."
Select one or more of the affirmations or formulas below to hold in
thought while in the Silence. You may change or vary these as you
Soul is health, spirit is health, God is health, I am
health. Since there is but one mind, there is but one
mentality. This mind and mentality is God; God is health. I
"I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious
and happy and what I am myself I desire for everyone else."
"I am filled with the abundant, intelligent, ever-present life of
Spirit. It flows through me freely, cleansing, healing, purifying
and vitalizing every part. I am one with this life and in it I am
every whit whole."
"The all-powerful Christ Mind in me dissolves and dissipates
every adverse thought. My body is the pure and Holy Temple of
the Living God, and every organ and every function is now
in Divine Order and Harmony."
All the organs of my body are functioning normally and I am
well, whole and complete.
All is mind, all is God, all is universal energy. I am part
of creative force and I am health, abundance, joy and peace.
I am filled, I am thrilled with Life Eternal and I radiate
that life within to me and without to all.
Every experience of my life has been for my good and I am
happy in living.
God is Spirit. I (use your own name) am life. Life Spirit is
now flowing through me freely and I am well, whole and
"Be still and know that I am God."
USE THE FOLLOWING AS A BASIS FOR YOUR MEDITATION AS YOU DEMONSTRATE
HEALTH. OF COURSE, YOU MAY USE OTHER THOUGHTS PROVIDED THEY ARE
CONSTRUCTIVE HEALTH THOUGHTS.
You may practice the Silence sitting, reclining, or in bed.
There is no better way to learn how to relax than by going into the
Silence. Are you tense? Let go. Relax.
Then direct the mind to go from one part of the body to another. Take a
deep breath between each change of your consciousness. Be sure to use
the diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing—breathing through the
nostrils, mouth closed until the muscles of the abdomen expand.
The best time to hold the Silence is as you retire at night, and just
as you awaken in the morning. But you should hold your thought at
least three times a day, without stress or strain, without doubt or
worry, passive in mind and body—perfectly relaxed.
Hold the Silence or thought upon retiring at night, awakening in the
morning, and at noon day. Of course, you may take any other time that
is convenient. You may concentrate on the roadway, street car, home or
office, but it is well, if possible, to have one room for your Silence.
Most people in that way will build up stronger vibrations. At noon now
there are all over the world thousands of others holding Silence so
that there is a great combined mental force working together at one
time for success, health, prosperity and happiness, and we therefore
get the benefit of this great vibration.
The more often you hold the Silence without stress or strain, as a
rule, the quicker may be the demonstration.
The real part of me is Spirit, not matter. I believe that this body of
mine is a Tabernacle for the Spirit. The real "I am" within me is
therefore Spirit. The real "me" is Spirit.
This Spirit is the God Spirit. This is what Jesus meant when in the
fourteenth chapter of John and again in the seventeenth chapter of the
same Gospel, speaking to His Disciples He referred to "I in you, you in
Me and We in God."
My Spirit is a part of the God Spirit. God is health, God is
perfection, God is abundance, God is harmonious. Therefore, the real "I
am" is God; the real "I am" is health, perfection, abundance and
When I am sick I know that it is the material of me that is sick, not
the God Spirit; it is my physical being which is out of harmony, it
is this Tabernacle of which Paul speaks, housing my spirit, which gives
me pain and suffering. The real "me" is not sick, it is my body.
For centuries we have held to a wrong idea of life. We have thought
that life is material; but life is spiritual, it is the invisible
within me which is eternal, which is God. Many still believe that life
is material and matter, instead of mind and spirit. I no longer hold
that conception. I believe that all is mind and Spirit.
Just here is where the healing methods of drugs and the scientist's
explanation of life is so limited. Not until we recognize that life is
really a thing of spirit—not matter but mind—not material but
spiritual—do we come into an understanding of Truth.
Jesus said, "God is Spirit," and on different occasions told His
Disciples that this Spirit was within them as well as within Himself.
Therefore, this same Spirit is within me and this same Spirit is the
God Spirit of health, abundance, happiness, harmony and perfection.
God is all health, all abundance, all harmony, peace and perfection.
Therefore the God Spirit within me is the same. I am sick in body; not
in mind, not in Spirit.
Inasmuch as I cannot conceive of God being sick neither can I conceive
of my Spirit being sick. My spirit is health, perfection and harmony.
My body may not be well, but since mind is all, since this material is
subject to the spiritual, since matter is subject to mind, I believe
and affirm that my health does not depend upon matter but upon the God
Spirit within me. It depends not upon the material but the spiritual,
upon the God mind within.
Just as wood when made into a violin and properly tuned, will give
forth harmony, so my body, though made in the material, when properly
tuned by mind will give forth harmonious living, perfect health.
As the tree standing in the forest may be made into the violin music
box of harmony, so my body, the material in the forest of matter, may
be put in tune, become harmonious and be raised to perfection by the
Master Musician, God—His mind within me.
God is all health. No one could conceive of God as being sick. I can
visualize only the eternal spirit of the Infinite Father. Perfection
existing in everything and I being a child in Spirit, am well, whole
and complete in Spirit. My real "I am" is well.
Science now asserts that matter is composed of twelve octaves, just as
in music. My body is the composite of these twelve octaves. Science
also says that every cell atom, every electron in my body is
This spirit of mine is housed in the Tabernacle of the body which is
composed of millions and millions of cells, all of which having
intelligence respond in my body according to the way I think. Every
word I entertain, every thought I hold, influences everyone of the
millions of cells making up this Tabernacle.
My body is made whole and complete physically. That is, all the cells
of my body are made over new every eleven months. The body I have today
is not the body I had eleven months ago. I get a new body every eleven
months and my body is today what my thinking was yesterday, the day
before that and the months before that. My body in the future depends
upon my thinking in the future. I am what I think I am.
When I affirm that I am well, whole and complete; that I am perfect,
harmonious and strong, I am suggesting to every atom in my body
perfection and every atom in turn begins to make my body over, new in
health and and in perfection.
I may or I may not have to wait for the element of time to make over
every cell. That may be done spontaneously and instantly. There is no
limitation to the power of God so I shall not set a time limit for my
healing, knowing that all things are possible with the Father. I affirm
that now I have that which I desire. I know that now the Spirit of
divine health is surging through me, touching and reaching every atom
of my body and that now the God Spirit within me is perfect and that
Spirit makes my body perfect.
"Man is a Spiritual Being. Man expresses himself mentally and manifests
himself physically. The One Life animates all that exists. Harmony of
existence depends upon the polarities of the three aspects of life. The
mind is at ease when open to the inflow of the Spirit. It is discordant
when it follows sensory impressions. The body is healthy when
responsive to the direction of the spiritualized mind. It becomes
diseased when it accepts the physical as its guide. One achieves mental
ease and physical health through his mental polarity. If open to the
physical and closed to the spiritual, discord will prevail. If open to
the spiritual and closed to the physical, he lives the One Life, in
mental ease and physical health. I open my mind to the inflow of the
Spirit. I place my body under the control of my spiritualized mind. I
feel the One Life animate my mind and my body. I AM a Spiritual Being.
I AM Perfect Health!"

THOUGHT TO HOLD IN THE SILENCE FOR ABUNDANCE
(See also Abundance, page 23)
"The Universal Abundant Spirit Supplies All My Needs."
There is no want or limitation in the law. If, perchance, there should
appear to be lack of, or need of, abundance in our lives, it is because
of wrong thinking—not because there is a lack of abundance. Therefore,
we should enter the Silence with the profound faith and conviction that
the world is filled with plenty, and that all our needs are most
The mind should be saturated with the conviction that all life is
filled with abundance—all space is overflowing with abundance—all
living comes from an abundant source of supply.
In a Universe where this is true, there can be no want, no lack for you
or yours (for me or mine).
As you take your exercises this month, take the affirmation above. As
you walk on the street to your office, or place of business, continue
this thought. As you go about your daily duties in the home or
workshop, let the mind be saturated with a spirit, a feeling and
thinking of abundance—"The opulence of the Universal Source of Supply
now meets all my needs," "The Abundant Life Giving Spirit of Prosperity
now leads and guides me into the paths of plenty, peace and power," "My
mind is filled with prosperous thoughts, my being is pulsating in
abundant rhythm, my soul is uplifted and sustained by a thousand
thoughts of ever-present abundance, prosperity and opulence."
As these thoughts are maintained and repeated again and again, absorbed
and sunk deep into the subconscious mind, know that all of your needs
are this minute supplied. Know that you could not ask for anything from
the Universal Spirit—Father, God—without that Spirit being most
willing to supply, instantly, all your needs. The spirit and body are
well, but the flesh is weak. Allow your flesh to be stimulated, and
your body to respond by thoughts of abundance, prosperity and opulence.
"I am now rich in thought, rich in body and rich in spirit. I am now
part of the abundant ever-present spirit of prosperity and opulence.
All that I need is now mine, mine, mine."
The Universal Abundant Spirit supplies all my needs.

THOUGHT TO HOLD IN MEDITATION IN THE SILENCE
FOR MISFORTUNES, GRIEF, MISTAKES, REVERSES, FAILURE, SORROW, LOSS AND
"All is Good."
We are entering upon a new consciousness for the human race, a higher
plane of mentality, and a greater development of the spiritual life.
In spirit, of course, there is no wrong, no sorrow, no grief, no
misfortune, no losses, no reverses. In short all is perfection.
The age in which we are living has not yet developed this spiritual
understanding. We are still of the earth—earthly—and we are still in
that consciousness where the physical is affected by seeming
misfortunes, reverses, sorrows, griefs, trouble, sickness, etc. We may
be wise in not expecting that suddenly this generation of man will
reach that spiritual plane where there will be no recognition of
anything except good.
We are a part of the Infinite Spirit ourselves and, of course, in
spirit, we are perfection. But this physical body of ours manifests
imperfection from time to time, because of our past training and past
thinking, because of our own consciousness. In time there is no doubt
in my mind but that the spirit within will make a perfect body without.
This perfection will be recognized in health and in peace of mind. It
will be recognized so that there will be no such thing as misfortunes,
sorrows, reverses, failures, griefs, disappointments or losses being
able to affect our mentality or our body. In this state of
consciousness, as we are emerging from the chrysalis, material stage of
man into the greater life, into the deeper spiritual understanding, we
are subject to certain conditions not conducive to peace of mind
without an effort. In other words, we recognize, or feel the effects of
losses, misfortunes, disappointments, sorrows, griefs, etc. We
recognize now, that the time is coming when the spirit will be so
completely in control of matter in the body, that we will not recognize
any inharmony. To reach that Great Spirit is one of the big forward
steps in this generation. To reach that spiritual plane also means the
right kind of thinking now. We plan, today, for tomorrow. This is true
in every walk of life.
We plan our home today—and build it tomorrow. We make our merchandise
today and market it tomorrow. We sow our seed today and we reap the
harvest tomorrow. We build our career today, little by little, and we
reach the outcome tomorrow. Therefore, our thinking today will change
our tomorrow. The thinking of this generation will change the condition
of tomorrow's generation. If tomorrow's generation is going to be free
from the recognition of sorrows, misfortunes, griefs, fears, pain,
losses, failures, reverses, inharmony, discord, etc., it depends upon
our seed sowing.
Our seed sowing today should be "All is Good." All is Good in spirit.
You can say that and be honest with yourself. All is perfection in
spirit. All is good for us in spirit. All is good for our lives here.
Spirit transcends matter. When we recognize, affirm, and continue to
hold the constructive thought that All is Good in spirit, we are
changing our own mental attitude, our own bodies, all matter in
general—getting ready for the greater realization of the spiritual
manifestation in the next generation.
Therefore, for your own good here today in success, prosperity and
happiness as well as in health, peace and harmony, begin to pronounce
over everything in life, All is Good. If you have any
misunderstandings, All is Good. If you have any losses, All is
Good, any reverses, All is Good, any sorrow, All is Good, any
inharmony, All is Good. In everything at all that is out of
perfection you must recognize only the good. ALL IS GOOD.
Sending your thought energy by repeating All is Good, and thinking
All is Good, and living All is Good, you will actually, in this
day, overcome your difficulty, and turn all of your mistakes, blunders
and misfortunes into stepping stones for your own success, health and
I enter the Silence this month, this day, this hour and this minute. My
mind is obsessed and under control of the Divine Spirit, I recognize
here and now only good. I see in my fellowmen only perfection and good.
I see in nature all around me only perfection and good. I see in every
transaction of life only the perfect good. I see in every activity of
my experience, and in every form, color and thought, good. All is
Good for me now, today and forever.
God is spirit; spirit is love; love is perfection; God's spirit is
harmonious, I am perfect, I am love, perfection and harmonious.
ALL IS GOOD.
* * * * *
FOR HARMONY, PEACE, COMFORT
Base your thought for this Silence upon the following. You may add any
constructive thought you choose.
"My Subconscious Mind, I Desire and Command You to Have Peace, Harmony
and Justice Reign in the Hearts of Men Everywhere."
I realize that there can be no negative thinking for my destruction,
downfall or harm sent out by anyone else that can reach my
consciousness, or do me ill, unless I am afraid that such negative
thinking will produce the evil effects others are planning.
I know that Thought is Energy. This is scientifically demonstrated, and
I realize that a constructive thought has much more energy than a
destructive thought. I know, because it has been conclusively proven,
that constructive thinking will blast away every negative
thought-current sent out by one person, or by a thousand.
Therefore, if there should be any inharmonious thoughts anywhere in the
world—any discordant thought-current by those who seek my downfall, or
block my progress, or by those who would endeavor to hurt my
reputation—I know that by holding a harmonious attitude of peace,
love, joy and success for everyone, including those who would do me
wrong that such constructive thought-currents will blast away all of
the discordant and inharmonious mental currents of evil so that they
will not even reach my conscious mind.
I also realize, when I hold my silent thought, "my subconscious mind I
desire and command you to have peace and harmony and justice reign,"
that I am sending out the energy of construction which is bound to turn
all of the efforts for my embarrassment and destruction into a higher
current for my greater achievement.
Therefore, I send out blessings and thanksgiving to the very ones who
would work my downfall. I charge my subconscious mind to let peace,
harmony and justice reign so that all things will work together for the
good for me and for those who are thinking evil.
If I should think it hard to send out blessings to my enemies, I
remember the affirmation of the Greatest Teacher of all ages Who said,
"Forgive until seventy times seven." I remember that when He, Himself,
was reviled, reviled not in turn. I remember that when His merciless
enemies had nailed Him to the cross, had apparently crushed His fondest
ambition, had scorned and reviled the Kingdom of which He had spoken,
and had tortured Him as He hung on the cross, He uttered the immortal,
lovable, constructive words which have rung throughout the centuries,
and will continue to bless all mankind throughout eternity: "Father,
forgive them, for they know not what they do."
So those who would try to block my way, curb my progress or put thorns
in my crown are doing so "not knowing what they are doing." "Whatsoever
a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Instead of hurting me, they are
sowing weed seeds, which shall bring forth a harvest of weeds and tares
in their own lives, and not in mine.
I, therefore, do not wish them harm, nor think that they should feel
the reaction. I do not have to concern myself about the negative people
in the world—for the law takes care of them.
I shall always think constructive thoughts, harmonious thoughts and
loving thoughts. "My Subconscious Mind, I desire and command you to
have peace, harmony and justice reign, and know that all things are now
working together for the good of my would-be enemies and for myself."
I relax (here pause and wait), take time for meditation (here pause and
rest relaxed) and I become happy in the silence—holding my thought of
peace, harmony and justice reigning in the hearts of men
everywhere—and, as I relax and wait, I feel my vibrations rise. I am
resting at ease, in faith. (Pause.) I am perfectly calm and contented.
(Pause.) I am sending out love, peace and harmonious thoughts, and, as
they go, love, peace and harmony will come to me. These are now
returning. They enter my being and uplift my soul.
I am, therefore, sending out a strong current of spiritual blessings,
with such a spirit of helpfulness, that I am getting back the same
which I send out. My harvest shall be peace, love, joy, harmony,
justice and contentment, because I am sowing the seed of love, peace,
harmony, joy, contentment and justice into the great subconscious soil
of the universe.
"My Subconscious Mind, I desire and command you to have peace, harmony
and justice reign everywhere throughout the world."
I wait—I rest—I am relaxed—I am at ease and filled with the spirit
of harmony. I wait. I listen for the spirit within. I feel and hear the
voice of infinite love sending back into my consciousness these
thoughts which I send out.
I know that my every constructive thought blasts away a thousand
destructive ones. Therefore, I think peace, joy, love, harmony and
justice, and, as I utter these words slowly and prayerfully, I feel my
vibration rising—I experience ease of mind and peace of soul. Harmony
is now within and without.
I realize that I cannot send out my affirmation of peace, love, joy and
harmony without peace, love, joy and harmony coming back to me. I,
therefore, send out my affirmation: "My Subconscious Mind, I desire and
command you to have peace, harmony and justice reign-in the hearts of
men wherever they may be." I wait and listen—perfectly relaxed and at
ease—and I feel the vibrations which I sent out coming back to me.
I, therefore, know that no harm can befall my dwelling place. I know
that whatever evil thoughts have been sent out for my destruction have
been counter-blasted, and that now everything is working for my good.
As I recognize, and realize, that all things work together for my good,
I am sending out love-thoughts that all things are working together for
the good of those who would do me wrong. "They know not what they do."
They alone will have to reap the harvest of the weeds they are sowing.
My wish for them is that they may learn their lesson easily and early.
My blessings I send out to them.
Again I wait. Again I listen. Again I am at ease, happy, and at rest.
Love and blessings, peace and harmony, I send out—love and blessings,
peace and harmony, come back. "My Subconscious Mind, I desire and
command you to have peace, harmony and justice reign. My blessings upon
all mankind—my love to everyone!"

THOUGHT TO HOLD AS A BASIS FOR THIS SILENCE
"I Have Faith and Conviction in My Ultimate Success."
I believe the Scripture: "My ways are not your ways, saith the Lord;
neither are my thoughts your thoughts, for as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my thoughts higher than your thoughts."
I understand by this Scripture that the thoughts of the Infinite God
are far above the understanding of finite me; that God's ways are
higher than my ways. "God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to
I also have faith and conviction in my ultimate success because I am a
part of the Infinite Spirit, and in the Infinite Spirit, there can be
no failure. I am harmonious, complete and successful in Spirit—in God.
I may not see my success today, or I may feel as though I have
accomplished little, but I know that all my efforts and energies, in
the past, present and future, are working together for my good.
Therefore, I shall hold the thought that my success has already been
achieved. I am Success, I have success now and forever! Therefore, I
think only success; I talk only success; I believe only in success; I
am demonstrating success, and I know that success is mine.
The needed lessons I am having now, have had in the past, and may
require in the future, are but necessary stepping stones to my greater
success. The apparent delay of my greater success means that I am now
demonstrating more success than I could otherwise have. Dreams that I
have dreamed, visions that I have visualized, and the goal that I have
mapped out, are all a part of my ultimate greater success. I have that
now! I am successful now!
As Moses went into the land of Midian, and spent forty years of his
life as a shepherd in the wilderness—(apparently with no future before
him—which, however, was the great schooling necessary for his greater
triumphant success in the future)—so I may be, in my land of Midian,
apparently, only a sheep herder, but in reality getting the necessary
training for my greater and ultimate success.
Therefore, I now rejoice in every experience I have—giving thanks for
every apparent set back, and for every "seeming" blocking of my
purposes and aspirations.
I believe that my past experiences, as well as present happenings, are
for my benefit, and that I could not have been the great success I am,
and shall be, had not the discouragements of yesterday, the
perplexities of today and the drawbacks of tomorrow come into my life.
I realize that I need to go into the land of Midian; that it is as
necessary for me, as it was for Moses, to spend a few years in the
wilderness of Life's experience. I am happy to know that I am in such
company as that of the Great Leader of his people, and rejoice in the
thought that the Lord has called me to spend my time in the land of
Midian, getting the necessary training for the greater things the Lord
has in store for me.
There is no place in the world where clouds do not gather, and storms
do not rage; but when the storms abate, and the skies clear, then do we
appreciate more fully the glories and beauties of God, the Universe and
its natural laws, and Infinite Love.
However, I know by experience in the land of Midian, where clouds hover
low, and where storms try the soul and body, that the dawn of a new day
shall make life all the sweeter for me and mine.
Moses could not have enjoyed leading his people into the promised land,
had he not been in the land of Midian. If he had stayed forever in the
Court of Pharaoh, with its attendant luxuries, life would have taken on
a dull, monotonous hue, and his experience would have seemed drab,
wearisome and pale.
I am glad for the privilege accorded me to be in the land of Midian for
a short time! I know that, as did Moses, I shall enjoy my promised land
all the more when my greater success shall have been well worked out by
the hand of Divinity.
Faith and conviction in my ultimate greater success is stronger today
than ever! I hold such a strong thought, and such a deep and courageous
faith in the workings of God's plan, that I know I now have that which
has been intended for me, and nothing can take from me that which the
Lord hath prepared for my success, health and happiness. I know, too,
that I shall learn daily to enjoy, appreciate, and make better use of
the success I now possess; that I shall unfold day by day into greater
opportunities for more influence, power, friendship, charity, love,
comradeship and service. I know that my present success is but a part
of the greater success which the Lord has waiting for me—"just around
Therefore, I shall offer up prayers of thanksgiving and gratitude; I
shall work harder, being more particular in the preparation for my
greater work, than I have been in the past—never doubting but that
every moment spent in this greater preparation will bring added
interests, and a greater success in the future.
Even as Moses did not doubt the wisdom of the Lord for a greater future
(when in the land of Midian for forty years), so shall I not doubt His
I claim, with a joyful heart and an attitude of thanksgiving, that my
life could not have been as great in the future had I been denied my
present experience. I know that greater things are in store for me,
because God's thoughts are greater than my thoughts; because He is
giving me that training now, in my land of Midian, which I most need. I
trust the guiding Spirit of Infinite Love to lead me, at the right
time, into my life's Promised Land.
The success today, in my land of Midian, is attracting unto me the
greater influence and power in my Court of Pharaoh, and in my
leadership, as I lead others into that promised land which the Lord has
prepared for me and mine.
I smile—I sing—I rejoice, and offer thanksgiving and gratitude for my
success now and forever. Surely I believe more and more: "My thoughts
are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways, saith the Lord,"
and all things are now working together for my good.
Therefore, I have faith and conviction in my ultimate success—in my
greater success—in my greatest success!

"There is abundance in the world for me given by the bountiful hand of
Omnipotence. I gratefully claim and accept all the supply for my
The old idea of orthodox prayer was that of supplication and begging. I
have spent a whole night at a time begging for a few pennies and
supplicating for the salvation of others. What waste of energy. Each
time that we send up such a weak supplication as the attitude of a
beggar, with the timid, frightful thoughts that only a beggar's mind
can have—this condition of mind, cross circuits the power to bring
into our lives the very things we most desire.
When the beggar extends his hand for a copper, he knows that not
everyone who passes is going to give him a coin. He, therefore,
solicits more or less mechanically, with a mind not positive or sure.
His hand is extended in timidity and weakness. Now and then he gets a
coin from a sympathetic passer-by. The same principle holds true for
the man who prays in the old orthodox fashion. He utters his petitions
with doubts and misgivings, with timidity and wonderings. Some of his
prayers are answered—just as the occasional coin is cast to the
beggar. But most of the orthodox prayers sent up in the fashion of
begging and supplicating are never answered. Of necessity, they cannot
be, because the concentration is filled with fear and trembling.
Only by positive and courageous thinking do we attract to ourselves the
answers to our prayers. When we are permeated with the spirit of doubt,
our petitions are cross-circuited.
Therefore, in making your affirmation this time, rest assured that the
abundant spirit of the Universal Supply has everything you need, and
has it now. You have only to put your mind in a condition to receive.
You do not have to beg the sun for its rays, nor God for His love. It
is there for the taking. Many of us keep the sunshine of abundance out
of our lives by pulling down the curtain of doubt—just as we may go
into a room, pull down a shade and keep out the sun. James Russell
Lowell, seventy-five years ago, told us the same story in "The Vision
of Sir Launfal," when he said that "Heaven is given away and God may be
had for the asking".
By gratefully accepting all of the supply for your needs, you are
running up the shade of positive faith and letting the sunlight of
Send out the desire for your supply to the Universal Mind and then
rest—feeling that it has been acquired. Of course, the stronger you
concentrate, without stress and strain (as outlined in "Practical
Psychology and Sex Life," by the author, under the chapter "How to get
what you want," and chapters on "Concentration"), and the more positive
and courageous your concentration, the stronger will be your mental
thought currents and consequently the quicker your demonstration.
Omnipotence has provided for me and mine, I raise the shade of my
faith and let in the Sunlight of Abundance. I know I do not have to beg
for this, for it is mine now. When first I saw the light of day, the
bountiful spirit of the Father made all preparations for my life's
necessities and pleasures. They have been in the world since I was
born. I now claim and accept my supply.
From now on the spirit goes before me—making easy and prosperous all
my ways—and I have abundance for every need. From the bountiful hand
of Omnipotence I have abundant health—I have abundant love—I have
abundant prosperity—I have abundant peace. My Father careth for the
grass of the field and the birds of the air—and He careth for me. I
Think it and live it now.
Abundance for all my needs is mine, now and forever.

HEALTH, SUCCESS, PROSPERITY, UNIVERSAL PEACE AND BROTHERHOOD
"God Made From One Blood All the Nations of the World."
As I enter the Silence this time, expecting to get health, success,
prosperity and happiness, I am going to have my mind filled with the
Spirit of Divine Unity. Unity among the nations of the world, unity in
abundance, unity in love, unity in prosperity, unity in health and
unity in spirit.
There can be no separation in Spirit. All is Mind, all is God, all is
Universal Energy. I am part of the creative force. I am a part and
parcel of the Unity of Love, Nature and God. Therefore, where God is, I
recognize a completeness. And I, being a part of God, a part of this
spirit, a part of the power with Him, am, therefore, at one with God
and all thought.
I am therefore at one with God and all spirit. Nothing can separate me
from the love of God, but my own mental attitude. Nothing can separate
me from abundance, happiness, success, prosperity and love, but my own
wrong thinking. Love is dealt in the world in the spirit of God and,
therefore, recognizing this unity of love, I am a part of it and have
perfect love, success, prosperity, abundance and health.
The ocean is composed of water. If I take a bucket of water from the
ocean, it still is the water of the ocean. I may take this water to an
island in the sea. Though I have separated this water from the main
body of the ocean, it still is the water from the sea. But, as the
water is separated from the main body of the ocean, it loses its power,
its strength and many of its cardinal properties. I am the same as the
sea water when I, by wrong thinking:—whether it be jealousy, envy,
hatred, misunderstanding, worry or fear—separate myself from the
spirit of God. I am as one going upon an island of humanity. I am still
of that same spirit; but it has been separated, so that within me, it
has lost many of its cardinal virtues. These virtues are there, but I
do not recognize them. Separation has lessened my strength, my
vitality, my power, my health, my happiness, my prosperity and my joy.
Just as it is necessary for the bucket of water to remain in the ocean
in order to contain all of its original power and to retain all of its
original strength, to be intact, so is it necessary for man to keep in
the spirit of at-one-ment with the Father, that we may manifest daily
God's principle of Unity with God, man and nature.
When we have maintained that attitude of one-ness with the Father in
all respects, we are then recognizing and expecting, in this act, the
fullness of our spirit. This fullness of our spirit will, therefore,
give us health, prosperity and happiness.
When I have a mind that is filled with negative, discordant or
inharmonious thoughts, I am separating myself from the full expression
of the Divine within me. I am the bucket of water going stale on a
human island; but, when I make my spirit at one with the Father by
harmonious thinking, by love, kindness, good will, fellowship and
co-operation, I am not only maintaining all of my original properties,
but I am in correspondence with the Infinite Spirit so that I can
manifest and express His original spirit in every particular.
Where there is a unity of spirit, there is unity of all the good things
of life. Perhaps I am not drawing from the bank of life's experience
everything that I ought to have—because I have separated myself from
the spiritual board of directors in this bank of life, and am not
getting my dividends on time. My mental attitude is the cause;
therefore, as I enter the Silence this time, I am going to maintain the
faith and the love-spirit of my unity with all things. I maintain,
therefore, my at-one-ment with God, with man and nature. I maintain
that all of the original strength of spirit is mine. I hold that the
manifestations of this original spirit will produce everything in my
life for my ultimate good, because I am at one with the Father. All
things are mine.
The Silence, this day, finds me at one with all. The Silence, this day,
finds me at peace with God, Man and Nature. The Silence, this day,
finds me in at-one-ment with God and all, in unity with every
conceivable thing in the universe. Therefore, my unity, my at-one-ment
with the Father, my wholeness of spirit with God brings into my life
everything for my good.
All things work together for my good in my at-one-ment with Man, God
and Nature—in my unity with all.

HOW TO HAVE MORE
"I Am Unselfish in Action, Being and Motive."
The science of psychology as applied to everyday life is, strictly
speaking, a new science. It is a matter of thousands of people in the
world all of a sudden coming in contact with certain laws, which make
them successful, healthy and prosperous.
It is quite natural, because man is interested more in himself than in
any one else, that, when he finds these laws may be applied to give him
more abundance, the tendency may be to use these laws for selfish
Nothing could be more unpsychological. The laws should be used for the
individual, but should not stop there. Each individual who is profiting
by the operation of the laws, or understanding of psychology, ought not
only to get everything himself that psychology can give him, but he
should pass these on to others; he should tell others about it; he
should cry it from the housetops and megaphone it from the street
corners. He should not want to get everything himself, but wish the
same that he has to everyone else. By doing this, the law will rebound,
and, instead of having less, he will have still more than he would have
were he thinking about the laws for himself alone.
The human race is made up of a whole lot of selfishness, and the man,
or the woman, who hopes to get the most out of life and out of
psychology, must learn at the very beginning of his or her
understanding of the laws. Then, only, will the best come to those who
are absolutely unselfish.
If there is any selfish motive or selfish desire in your heart, you may
operate the law and get a certain amount of benefit, nay, you may even
become rich by it and have great power, but it should not end there.
Your riches are for the use of others, as well as for yourselves, and
the real psychologist, in getting his riches, will pass on to others
that which he has. The real psychologist, in getting more power, will
share it with others and will use it for the good of others, as well as
for his own personal aggrandizement.
Therefore hold the thought: "I am unselfish in action, being and
Many a person never will get the demonstrations he wants, because the
channel of abundance and prosperity, happiness and joy, is clogged up
with his own selfish attitude. The selfish person who does operate the
laws, does so by overbalancing his selfishness with some other great
virtue. But when he is extremely selfish, he may never have
demonstrations as he wants; he may not have enough other virtues to
outweigh his selfishness. He may live for years, and know what the laws
are, and yet lack this one little thing, unselfishness, in operating
the laws for his own abundance, prosperity or happiness.
If you are not having the demonstrations you want, it is because there
is a kink in the mind somewhere. The kink may be selfishness, or it may
be pride, haughtiness, duplicity, dishonesty, hatred, envy or jealousy.
This time we are going to hold the thought: "I am unselfish in action,
being and motive," and each time we go into the Silence, this unselfish
spirit shall be the guiding-star of our thoughts. It will be the
personal touch with the Infinite Spirit itself.
The beginning of life's happiness, as well as the end thereof, is the
spirit of unselfishness.
"I am unselfish in action, being and motive."

ALL THINGS ARE IN DIVINE ORDER
"Divine Harmony and Peace Actuate Every Thought and Action of My
I realize that all things are in Divine order for me and mine. There
can be no disturbance in the world without or the world within my being
but that is in perfect harmony with the Infinite.
The circumstances outside of my life are all for my good. My
environment where I am now and the conditions in which I am living, I
make harmonize for me by my attitude of mind. I think only peace, I
breathe only love, I speak only harmony. My conditions and my
environment, although outwardly inharmonious to my likes and
tendencies, are changed by the alchemy of my thinking into a perfect
symphony of happiness for me now.
"Divine Harmony and Peace actuate every thought and action of my
being." This thought is energy, this thought is life, this thought is
power. The energy, life and power of this thought weaves all of my
diversified Life's experiences into a Divine pattern of perfection for
me. There can be no trouble, disappointments, sorrow, reverses, loss or
discord but that shall be changed for my good when I think Spirit and
live the affirmation of today, namely, "Divine Harmony and Peace
actuate every thought and action of my being." All things are in Divine
The Spirit of Divinity prompts my thinking. The Divine within me
actuates my actions. The God Powers within, this minute are working all
things together for my good. There can be no danger come nigh my
dwelling for my body is the temple of the living God. Therefore, the
God Spirit within me protects me from all harm, inspires me to high
ideals, lifts me to heights of righteousness and fills my soul with
love. Love for my circumstances, love for my present conditions, love
for my environment, love for every one in the world, love for all of
the creation of God.
Therefore I have no enemies, for I love all. I recognize no
misfortunes, for the love energy within turns all misfortunes and
sorrows into stepping stones for my greater advancement and
achievement. The God energy within transforms all inharmonious
conditions without into a perfect harmony within. The Kingdom of God
now reigns within me and I am at ease, at peace and at-one-ment with
all nature and God. The harmony therefore within me in nature and in
God gives me perfect peace within and perfect peace without. Divine
thought and energy, love and blessing actuate every action of my being.
Where Divine Love reigns there can be no trouble, no discord, no
inharmony, no lack, no limitation, no sorrow, no grief, no sickness, no
failure. The energy of Divine Love transforms all things into my Good.
The Love and Peace of the Father abideth within me and is manifested
without so that my life is one harmonious whole touching the lives of
all others who come in contact with me so that they, too, feel my
vibrations of at-one-ment with the Father and they in turn become
harmonious and complete in Spirit with man and God.
Divine Harmony and Peace actuate every thought and action of my being.
All things are in Divine order.

THOUGHT TO HOLD IN SILENCE AND TO MEDITATE UPON DURING THE DAY
"There's a Spirit of Justice that Secures me in Which is My Own."
If we reach a consciousness of justice, we need have no doubts as to
our care in every particular while journeying between the two peaks of
eternity—from birth to the Great Divide.
There is nothing that can defeat justice; and the person who has a
consciousness of justice will attract to himself every conceivable
thing needed for this life, because it will be the logical objective of
justice to supply to each individual that justice for which he thinks.
That is the reason why this affirmation is so complete in itself;
namely, "There is a spirit of JUSTICE that secures me in which is my
own, and this security is provided already for us by the Spirit of
It would be a psychological paradox to think that Justice could be
defeated. That could not be. Perhaps it appears to you that your own
has not yet been secured to you, but, remember that life is
fleeting—that a year is as a tale that is told—and that a decade is
but as "Ships that pass in the night"—when the years have vanished in
If you have lived a life of justice, and it appears now that your own
is not coming to you, that someone else is having more of the good
things of life than you, and that someone seems to have used the art of
the man of injustice, be not deceived, God is not mocked, for
"whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap." If you have sowed
equity and justice in the days that are gone, be sure that the same
equity and justice will be secured to you.
The Scriptures tell us not to think too much of the man who is
nourishing like a green bay tree, for his efforts are soon cut off and
he vanisheth away.
One who is astride the scales of justice, and who thinks that he can
hold the balance, is gravely mistaken. He may have occupied his present
position for many years, first putting his weight on one side and then
on the other in an effort to keep his equilibrium. Perhaps today it
appears that the scales of justice are being well manipulated by his
insincerity, duplicity or trickery—but it is like the green bay tree.
It will soon pass away.
Justice is as eternal as God Himself, and there is no more possibility
of defeating it in the individual's life, in your own life, in the life
of a nation or in the history of mankind, than there is likelihood that
the sun can get away from its own rays. The justice of God is eternal,
or, in other words, God always is Justice, personified. Where God
rules, and where His laws and mandates have been given by His own fiat,
"man, neither flesh nor the devil" can defeat the ultimate outcome of
justice. Your own is secured to you.
Man himself is fashioned by the finger of Divinity. The crown of
justice is placed upon his brow and no ruthless hand of greed,
duplicity or evil dexterity can ever tear it away. It is there to stay,
and the man who has been thus crowned because he has lived in this
consciousness of justice—in the consciousness of God Himself—is bound
to have come back to him that which he has thought, that which he has
sowed—Justice. You are secured by this spirit of justice.
Perhaps already your life has had the law of compensation bring to you
more than to others of whom you may think, and who, because of their
bank account, get more out of life than you. A man may have a million
dollars, and yet not be as happy as the laborer living in a thatched
cottage. Perhaps Justice has tipped the scales in your favor
already—and you have failed to recognize it. Perhaps you have
children, loved ones, family and fireside which bring more comfort to
you than the land owner gets who lives in his palace on the hill.
Half of Life, or the joys of Life, depend upon our ability to recognize
and appreciate the blessings we already have. Therefore, in counting
your blessings, or discounting your blessings, be sure that you use a
moral standard, instead of a material standard, in gauging whether
justice has been meted out to you or not.
The Justice of the Eternal secures me, the Spirit of Justice secures me
in which is mine own. Believe it, think it, live it, claim it and
Justice shall be yours.

Question—In practicing the Silence, the mind seems to flutter all
about and there is great nervous tension. What is wrong?
Answer—Lack of concentration. This person ought to follow some
simple exercise of concentration, such as given below, until the mind
has control over the body. By practicing a few of the simple exercises
given below, fifteen minutes a day, and then taking the Silence a few
hours after these exercises have been practiced, the mind will begin to
be under control.
The nervous tension is caused because of this lack of control, and in
the effort to bring the scattering mind into one focus the reaction
comes upon the nervous system which, in turn, reacts upon the body.
Practice and exercises for lack of concentration follow.
By Thos. Parker Boyd
(1) Select some part of the body, a foot or hand, with the
idea of HEAT. While holding the mind in this attitude,
breathe deeply and steadily, and, in from one to four
minutes, you will feel the warm glow coming to the foot. In
this way, you can soon master the entire body. Begin with the
sense of feeling. If there is an itching of the body, make it
stop by the force of your will. In from three days to three
weeks, you can stop the itching sensation at will. Then try
the habit of sneezing; stubbornly resist the inclination to
sneeze, and you will soon have the mastery. Now try your will
on coughing. When the tickling sensation comes, stop it by
the exercise of your will. You can soon master it. Next try
it on pain. When you feel a pain in the body, instead of
rubbing on liniment, rub in a little will power; soon it will
ease your pain as if by magic. With the fingers of one hand
rub the skin on the back of the other hand, stroking toward
the elbow, and will that all feeling shall disappear. In from
one to three minutes, take a needle, and you can stick it
through the skin on the back of the hand without pain. You
may have to try it a dozen times, but persistence will bring
success. Having mastered the sense of feeling, take up that
(2) It may seem impossible at first thought, but you have
seen people so absorbed in what they were reading or thinking
that they heard nothing, although you addressed them
directly. They are simply abstracted from all else, and are
thinking of one thing—to the exclusion of everything else.
They entered this state of abstractedness unconsciously. To
do so intentionally, you go by the law of indirectness. For
instance, take sight; concentrate your vision and your whole
attention upon some object, real or imaginary, until soon the
sense of HEARING becomes dormant. A little practice will
enable you to study, think or sleep, regardless of noise.
(3) Having mastered hearing, begin on SIGHT. You have known
people who walked on the street, looked at you and passed by
without recognition, although they knew you well. A person
deeply thinking on some subject, neither sees nor hears, but
uses the mental sense entirely. The method is to let the eyes
be open, but concentrate the thoughts on hearing or feeling.
(4) After getting control of your sight, take up the TASTE.
Take some tasteless thing on the tongue, abstract the mind to
something else until the taste becomes dormant. Then take
something with more taste to it, abstracting the taste, until
by this gradual process you can make the sourest pickle
(5) Finally take some light odor, and hold it before the
nostrils, abstracting the attention from the sense of smell,
by hearing or seeing, etc., until by practice you can pass
through the foulest odor without inconvenience or notice.
Sit or stand absolutely motionless, except your breathing, for one to
five minutes at a time. Do this often.
Practice closing each finger in rotation; then, when all are closed,
open one at a time very slowly, keeping the attention fixed on what you
are doing. Keep all the other fingers still, save the one you are
Inhale gradually for ten seconds, then exhale in the same way and time.
Look steadily at some point or object for a minute without winking the
eye, keeping your attention fixed on the object.
Look at a picture critically, then close your eyes and mentally
Close your eyes and construct the face of a friend, feature by feature.
Fix your attention on a hand or foot, hold on it the idea of heat and
continue until the hand or foot feels warm. Then try cold; then try
Will that the person in front of you shall turn around or put his hand
on his head or neck.
Hold your hand on some one in pain and say, "I will the pain to
depart." Repeat till the pain goes.

KINKS IN THE MIND—THE CAUSE AND CURE OF SICKNESS
BY DAVID V. BUSH
What is the kink in your mind? Does your subconscious mind entertain
thoughts of fear, sickness, poverty, unhappiness—do you lack
courage—have you been hampered in reaching your success goal—do you
want to be master of self and your own destiny? Do you wish to conquer
disease—strengthen your personality—be more and do more?
Here then is a way to overcome all these mental handicaps and develop
within yourself constructive action. Dr. Bush, through his vast
experience in handling thousands of cases, has proven beyond a doubt
that all sickness, poverty and unhappiness is caused by "KINKS" in the
mind. When the store house of the intellect, the subconscious mind,
becomes clogged up with morbid thoughts and destructive suggestions the
physical being refuses to work in harmony.
Dr. Bush tells you how to train your subconscious mind along the path
of creative thinking. He points out the means of attaining the very
things in life that your better self has longed for. He explains how
you make your "Dreams of success come true" and he gives you actual

WHY SOME PEOPLE FAIL IN VISUALIZING
RULES FOR VISUALIZATION
To visualize and concentrate successfully, certain definite principles
underlying the laws that control the functions of the mind must be
understood and applied. My experience in thousands of cases shows that
failure is often due to the wrong application of these laws—to a
misunderstanding of the mental processes necessary to properly focus
the thought waves upon some definite desire and the urge of the
conscious mind for too hasty action.
The laws of visualization and concentration are well defined and when
properly exercised are without limitation as to success, but to
accomplish results one must understand and use these laws properly.
You will more readily grasp the principle that governs the laws of
visualization and concentration after reading this little booklet.
In it Dr. David Bush has gone right down to bed rock—he thoroughly
explains these necessary laws—he puts you right and shows you your
mistakes—he starts you off on the right foot so that you may apply
these laws for your benefit and profit.
Dr. Bush believes, from his own vast experience, that more people fail
on concentration and visualization than on any other operation of the
laws of mind now being studied or applied, because they only partly
understand these laws. In this pamphlet he shows why the vast
majority of people fail in visualizing. There are natural laws which
are very often cross-circuited by well intentioned people trying to
operate them for their good, all because they fail to understand the
right way. You will understand visualization after you read "Why Some
People Fail in Visualization."

reading it—you need it now—-send 25c in stamps or coin.
THE INFLUENCE OF SUGGESTION AND AUTO-SUGGESTION
In this little booklet Dr. David V. Bush discusses Suggestion and
Auto-Suggestion from a different angle than that in "Practical
Psychology and Sex Life" and "Applied Psychology and Scientific
Living." He takes the practical side of Suggestion and points out its
value and usefulness. He explains the limitations of Suggestion and
deals in a different way with the mental laws that control this
powerful factor for your success. No matter what thought you have given
to this interesting subject—no matter how much you studied Suggestion,
you will be surprised and delighted with the plain everyday way in
which Dr. Bush explains this mental phenomena.
