I say to you, “Beware!”—for a picture of the lower desire may be placed before an individual, and the picture will cause the thought to act. This shows the necessity of the control of the vision as well as the thought. The vision is one activity of the attention.
Important: In the coming marvelous period we are just entering, there will not be permitted a single negative picture of any kind, which would be in any way suggestive to call forth the lower activity of thought. This is why We have urged so earnestly that no matter how negative a thought or appearance may be, to instantly take the thought, “There is only the Mighty Inner Presence and Intelligence of God there operating.”
