The Law of Mind: Understanding the Universe

The Universe holds nothing against us, there is no vindictive God. We cannot destroy the Law but we can and may so alter our position in It that old sequences of cause and effect which have produced bondage, sickness, trouble, and unhappiness may instantly become converted into new sequences which will produce opposite results. This is salvation.
Everything in manifestation runs on a time track which is a sequence of a particular chain of cause and effect. But we can erase any such sequence and set in motion a new causation by using the same power of the Law.
The Law of Mind is a law of cause and effect. Thought or idea is the invisible cause; manifestation or the created form is the effect. The form is an outer symbol expressing the idea. Thoughts are acted upon by the Law of Mind which responds with mathematical exactness to the ideas presented to It.

Be In Harmony

We must always be sure that our word – our prayer – is in harmony with eternal Reality. When we turn our prayer over to the Law we are setting cause and effect in motion. And if we wish to experience only that which is good, our use of the law must be good. This is but another way of saying that the Universe is foolproof.
Time, space, and conditions are the effects of mental causes through the action of the Law of Mind. Any sequence of cause and effect is relative to the mind which conceives this sequence, and it is equally necessary to understand that the mind which conceives any particular sequence may as easily project another and different one.
The universe is a combination of spontaneous thought and a mathematical reaction to it. In other words there is a Divine Presence knowing, and a universal Law responding.

And So It Is
