I hold that this energy, or force, or dynamic principle, is no respecter of persons. Its service, like that of the sun and rain, and all natural forces, is open to all—just and unjust; good and bad; high and low; rich and poor. It responds to the proper efforts, no matter by whom exerted, or for what purpose called into effect. But the proper effort must be exerted, consciously or unconsciously, else there will be no operation of the force.
I believe that the activities of this dynamic mental principle are intimately correlated to manifestations of the mental operations known to us as desire, will, and imagination. We shall learn something of the laws and principles and modes of operation of its energies and activities, as we proceed with our consideration of it, in this work.
It may be difficult for you to grasp this conception of Mind-Power at the start—but it will grow upon your understanding as its activities are presented to you, one by one, like a great panorama. My terms will be explained and illustrated by examples, as we proceed—so you need not analyze them at this point. I have postulated of my conception of Mind-Power that it pervades all space—is immanent in all things—and manifests in an infinite variety of forms, degrees, and phases.
But, it may be urged, this is nothing more than science claims for the principle of physical energy—then is Mind-Power identical with the physical energy of science? No, Mind-Power is very far from being a blind, mechanical energy—it is a living, mental force, which I hold is behind the manifestations of physical energy and mechanical force. It is not the physical energy of science, but is something of the nature of a living will, which is rather the cause of physical energy, than identical with it.
Let us take a familiar example. You desire to move your hand—and it moves. You send a current of nerve-force which is really a manifestation of Mind-Power or will-force from your brain, along the nerves of the arm, which contracts the muscles of the arm and hand, and your desire is gratified.
Your desire, or wish, set into motion the Mind-Power which acted upon the material substance of your body and caused it to act. What was it that flowed along the nerve-wires?
Was it electricity, or magnetism? Sometimes the handbook of a motor can contains a simple explanation of how the engine works. These two minds are separated by some from of barrier or curtain. It transforms food and oxygen into the tissues and energy. It regulates the routine functions, coordinating the activities of all the organs of the body; the heart stomach, liver, lungs etc.
It superintends the maintenance and repairs which the body requires broken bones will knit, torn flesh will heal, antitoxins, will be manufactured to combat fevers and in additional to this, the unconscious mind also controls almost all the functions of the physical and emotional life.
It has absolute power over the routine functions. Nature, it has been said, would not trust man to digest his food by his own efforts, because through his carelessness or forgetfulness he will soon starve to death.
The unconscious mind, with robot like efficiency controls all the organic functions of the body and consciously man is unaware of all this complex inner activity. This arrangement leaves the conscious mind free to attend to activities. In the outside world…and the arrangement works very satisfactorily if nothing happens to upset the automatic activity of the unconscious mind.
Nervous tensions are the most common cause of interference with what should be the smoothly coordinated operations of the unconscious mind.
The first intimation a man has that something is wrong, may be a mild attack of indigestion, or he feels nervy and cannot relax, or maybe is not sleeping well. He may become aware that the robot unconscious mind is keeping, tensions switched-on and that he cannot get instructions through to it to switch-off.
This is the condition loosely described as nervous tensions, and is the basic cause of most stress complaints. Because of this we can see, by observing them in the jungle, what happens under stress. I once saw a herd of deer grazing quietly.
Suddenly a lioness, which had crept near them under the cover of some undergrowth, made a charge immediately as she appeared in the open the whole herd galloped off. The lioness, failing to get within striking distance, soon gave up the chase. The deer gradually slackened their pace and as the lioness stopped although they have moved a short distance, they also stopped, and to my surprise began grazing again as though nothing had happened.
It will illustrate how the physical and nervous system operates if we examine what happened to the deer during this alarm. Immediately an alarm is given, chemical and physical changes in the body take place at lightening speed. Sugar from the liver, together with secretions from the adrenal glands is released into the blood stream, blood pressure rises, and the animal is poisoned, senses alerted, muscles tensed, ready for instant action either to take refuge in flight or to stand and fight…all other body processes such as digestion which are not essential to deal with the emergency, are suspended.
