To work with mind power you do not have to understand the laws of physics or how reality manifests itself, just as you don’t have to understand how a carburetor works or how spark plugs fire in order to drive a car. Few of us understand automotive mechanics, but that doesn’t stop us from driving. Likewise, in the science of mind power, anyone can quickly and success fully master the basics and effectively put them to work in his or her life.
We begin by examining the nature of reality, especially the startling new discoveries in science over the last twenty years which have helped us to understand more clearly how the mind creates its own reality. These discoveries explain why creating visualizations in our minds is not just idle daydreaming, but is a creative process which helps us control and direct the same energies that hold matter together, change water into steam, or cause a seed to sprout and grow.
Understanding the nature of these energies assists us in understanding the mind, and shows us why inspiration, prayer and intuition are not supernatural phenomenon at all, but follow patterns and laws which we can discover and use at our will. Like everything else in the known universe, the powers of the mind are governed by laws which, robbed of their scientific jargon and clearly presented, can be easily understood by anyone.
Let me take you on a short adventure into these new discoveries. Modern physics now sees the universe as a vast, inseparable web of dynamic activity. Not only is the universe alive and constantly changing, but everything in the universe affects everything else. At its most primary level, the universe seems to be whole and undifferentiated, a fathomless sea of energy that permeates every object and every act. It is all one. In short, scientists are now confirming what mystics, seers and occultists have been telling us for thousands of years we are not separate but part of one giant whole.
