Again, let Me call your attention to the Mighty Truth that thought is the wedge of God’s Energy released into action. By this, you can see how important it is to become consciously master of your own thought. In this mastery lies full dominion. In conjunction with the mastery of thought must come mastery of the outer activity; for unless we compel the outer to live in harmony with our idealistic thought, it will pull the thought from its Height and degrade it. Why is this so? Because of long centuries of the building of habit. There is nothing hard or difficult about this; it but requires firm attention. If there are weeds in your garden, you give sufficient attention to them till they are pulled out. So it is with the outer activity. You have but to pluck out the weeds, and leave it clear for the Inner Presence and Essence of God.
Let us go a step farther, which may seem a little more subtle and yet is quite as easy, for it is necessary to recognize your thought as the molder of form. If living in the racial thought has permitted or caused the form to express age or infirmity—an inferior expression of that Mighty Energy, then We know that it has the Power to build the form into Beauty and Symmetry, and to build the perfect brain activity for expressing the Highest Intelligence.
