Self-control and Self-correction
That which everyone seeks is happiness, sometimes called bliss, and yet many who have sought so earnestly have unknowingly continued to pass by the key to this happiness.
The simple key to Perfect Happiness and its inherent sustaining power is Self-control and Self-correction.This is so easy to accomplish when one has learned he is the “I Am Presence” and Intelligence controlling and commanding all things.
Surrounding each individual is a thought-world created by him or her. Within this thought-world is the seed, the Divine Presence, the “l Am” which is the only acting Presence there is in the Universe, and which directs all energy. This energy can be intensified beyond any limit through the conscious activity of the individual.
The Divine Presence within is likened unto the pit or seed of a peach; the thought world around it unto the pulp of the peach.The pulp represent not only the thought world created by the individual, but also the Universal
Electronic Substance, ever present, waiting to be acted upon by the conscious determination of the individual to be precipitated into his visible use as the form of whatsoever he may desire. The sure pathway to the understanding and use of this conscious power comes through Self-control. What do I mean by Self-control?
- First, the recognitions of the I Am Intelligence as the only Acting Presence .
- Second, that knowing this, we know there is no limit to the power of Its use.
- Third, that individuals, having been given free will and choice, do create in the world about them whatsoever their thought, through their attention, is held firmly upon.
The time has arrived when all must understand that thought and feeling are the only and Mightiest Creative Power in life or in the Universe. Thus the only way to the definite use of the full power of one’s thought and feeling, which is God in Action, is through Self-control Self-correction by which one may quickly reach the attainment, the understanding whereby he may direct and use this Creative Thought power without any limit whatsoever.
The Key which opens the entrance to all higher spheres above you lies in the simplicity and firmness of this Self-control.Where your consciousness is, there you are, for I Am everywhere.
