Meta. Thoughts, with their corresponding words and acts, that are not in harmony with Divine Mind. Error thoughts have no foundation in absolute Truth. They originate in the intellect. Such thoughts are eliminated by one's denying their reality and power, and affirming the Truth of Being; then their outer expressions and manifestations disappear also.
In prayer, in communion with God in the secret place of the Most High, the mind lays hold of divine ideas and establishes them in consciousness. This is the place that prayer has in controlling thought. There is no presence or power of evil, in reality; there is only one Presence and one Power the good omnipotent.
