After we have come this far, we are still reluctant to turn the matter of hard cold cash over to a mental process. There is something too uncertain, something which constantly reminds us that we must "work it out by the sweat of our brow." But the fact is that we must resolve the whole thing into the mental realm if we are to gain the financial freedom that we are seeking.
Going back a little in history we find that what we today call dollars and cents were not known, and that men traded work for something to eat, and the Indians traded skins for manufactured goods. The state of Pennsylvania was purchased for a few skins which were not redeemable for much in actual dollars and cents.
Today we think a thing is worth so

you do not readily grasp this just look at the present situation in the European
money market. The mark for instance is identical in size and shape, or. color of
ink and quality of paper, as it ever was, and yet today people in Germany know
that the mark is only worth a fraction of its former, value. The mark has
not changed, it is the peoples idea of values, and so it is with our dollar.
During the world war it was a common thing to hear it said that a dollar would
not buy much more than a quarter's worth in normal times, and yet, there was
and is no
scarcity of money; on the other hand there is an
ever increasing inflow of it from every mint. Is it not then strange that when

I do not mean to say that you can sit down and think a million dollars into your lap without an effort. In the first place you cannot easily gain the million dollar consciousness, so it is better to begin by placing yourself in a state of consciousness which you can more readily imagine yourself in. Once you have set about correcting the poverty thought you will find that new and unthought of avenues of supply will open to you.

Once you have decided to take the stand of thinking prosperity and refusing to see poverty or limitation in anything, you will find that the battle is half won.

In the beginning, or before that let us say,
everything was evolved from formless substance, or mind, which was brot into
expression; even the silver of your dollar was a mental thing at that time for
there was nothing but God, Mind. Then this Mind set about creating the different
things in the universe. It pressed out, or expressed Itself in various things,
so today we begin to realize that the thing we are looking for is in Mind.
Now it is happily
possible for us to link ourselves with this one infinite Source of all things,
for we are "made in His image and likeness;" we are sons and joint heirs with
the Christ, and a little later on we find that "The Father within me He doeth
the work". It does not say the Father outside of us, but the Father, Mind,
within us He doeth the work. We have then but to turn within and make our connec

For instance, not long ago a young girl walked about the narrow ledge of an apartment house, several hundred feet above the ground, in her sleep; a thing she would not have attempted when awake. The relative mind was out of the way and vine Mind was in control. All things are possible to this Divine Mind and that is the Mind which we wish to let work within us, while it is the mortal mind which we wish to eliminate.
The unlimited power of the Divine Mind will work in you when you have overcome this mortal or relative thinking and given yourself over to the absolute. This is not a dificult thing to do, but it is a thing which requires diligent watching. Idle words or thots are little seeds which will develop into weeds that must be garnered or rooted up sooner or later.
Accummulated wrong thinking
sometimes seems like a mountain before us as we attempt to say, "I am abundantly
supplied with everything I need," but just the same a large mountain can finally
be moved away with a shovel if there is no other way of doing it. The cleansing

stand and realize that we are right now in pos
One of the master strokes in demonstration is
silence. "Keep silent before me." And remember that to keep silent is like
allowing a seed to remain in the ground until it has time to germinate and come
to light. Tell no one, talk with no one, dis
