Series 2 - Lesson 6 - Annotation 13
How may one attain the consciousness necessary to speak real creative words?
13. Consciousness is direct knowledge, knowing for one's self, a constant habit of thought. We attain the high state of consciousness which enables us to speak real creative words by a process of mental development, growth, unfoldment of the divine attributes (ideas) latent within us.
To attain the desired consciousness, we must learn to discipline our thinking and our feeling; learn to take our attention away from persons and things in the outer. Then in the stillness of our own soul we are able to think and feel the essence of the ideas of God, rather than have our attention on the imperfect and limited beliefs that we hold when we are not enlightened as to the truth of our being.
Through meditation and prayer on that which is divine and perfect, we attain an understanding of our divinity. "Whatsoever things are true ... think on these things" (Phil. 4:8). When this knowledge is really ours, we may speak our word and "it is so."
