Intellect, 81:a new and unusual field of contact. Then "the mind-stuff reflecting both the knower (the Self) andIntellect, 81:but they mean the same thing. They mean that the mind and the soul (the Christ within us or theIntellect, 82:direct control of the soul, for the illuminated mind transmits (as we shall see later) soulIntellect, 82:reflects the love nature of the soul, as the mind reflects the purposes of God. Thus, the hithertoIntellect, 82:Its method is that of focused attention, of mind control, or of meditation, and is a mode ofIntellect, 83:and self-initiated. Through meditation, the mind is used as an instrument for observing the eternalIntellect, 84:place, leading up to full illumination." "The mind then tends towards increasing illumination as toIntellect, 86:and set himself to demonstrate the fact of the mind, its relation in the two directions (to theIntellect, 86:the other) and finally his ability to use that mind at will as he may choose. This involves theIntellect, 86:may choose. This involves the development of the mind as a synthesized, or common sense, andIntellect, 91:set before ourselves as we seek to reorient the mind to the soul, and through the union thusIntellect, 93:Bible of a similar nature will come readily to mind. Willingness to "bear the cross, "to "enter theIntellect, 94:means "agile," a faculty of the discriminative mind, the mental body. Shadrach means "rejoicing inIntellect, 95:think, and who can utilize the sixth sense, the mind, to produce certain specific results. OtherIntellect, 95:attainment of success through the agency of the mind, the achievement of [96] perfection, theIntellect, 98:of the sensory apparatus, and pride that of the mind. The meditation process is divided into fiveIntellect, 99:This is the act of concentrating the mind, learning to focus it and so use it. Meditation. TheIntellect, 99:in any direction and the steady holding of the mind on any desired idea. Contemplation. An activityIntellect, 99:An activity of the soul, detached from the mind, which is held in a state of quiescence.Intellect, 99:first and necessary step is the attainment of mind control. Meister Eckhart, writing in theIntellect, 100:three things. The first is, possession of one's mind. The second is, a mind that is free. The thirdIntellect, 100:is, possession of one's mind. The second is, a mind that is free. The third is, a mind that canIntellect, 100:second is, a mind that is free. The third is, a mind that can see. How can we acquire thisIntellect, 100:can see. How can we acquire this speculative mind? By a habit of mental concentration." - Pfeiffer,Intellect, 100:not (as is so often the case) the victim of his mind, swayed by thoughts and ideas over which heIntellect, 100:Indian Scripture, the Bhagavad Gita: "The mind wavers, Krishna, turbulent, impetuous, forceful; IIntellect, 100:as the wind." "Without doubt... the wavering mind is hard to hold; but through assiduousIntellect, 100:34-35, II, 52-53. The first step, therefore, is mind control. This means the power to make the mindIntellect, 100:mind control. This means the power to make the mind do as you want, to think as you choose, toIntellect, 101:under direction. The function of [101] the mind, in the majority of cases, is first of all toIntellect, 101:by the brain. Hume tells us that the "mind is a kind of theatre, where several perceptionsIntellect, 101:we refuse admission if we do not like them. The mind has a tendency to accept what is presented toIntellect, 101:and of science as to the nature of the mind are too many to touch upon here. Some regard it as aIntellect, 102:definitions are included. He says: "...the word 'mind' may be used in three senses; first, as MindIntellect, 102:'mind' may be used in three senses; first, as Mind or Spirit in reference to some Activity, for usIntellect, 102:the idea of the divine purpose, the universal mind, of that human mentality which distinguishes manIntellect, 102:animate and the so-called inanimate. It is with mind as a quality emerging at a high level ofIntellect, 102:in which he is immersed. Not only that, but the mind registers impressions emanating from otherIntellect, 103:and desires, are also [103] recorded by the mind, whether of a high grade or a low, but with theIntellect, 103:express them is one of the functions of the mind, yet, how few people have ideas or originateIntellect, 103:"telegraphs" the information registered to the mind, which, in its turn, records it. That usuallyIntellect, 103:incidents, and a study of cause and effect. The "mind-stuff," as the Oriental calls it, is sweptIntellect, 103:further is discovered. He finds that the mind, when properly governed and disciplined, is capableIntellect, 104:recorded on the sensitive receiving-plate of the mind, they may come forth from the kingdoms of theIntellect, 104:with whom his soul may be in touch. Then the mind enters upon a new and fresh usefulness and itsIntellect, 104:are superseded by the higher, and when the mind can be rendered temporarily insensitive to allIntellect, 104:brought about by any methods of rendering the mind passive and receptive, or by any system ofIntellect, 104:receptive, or by any system of "blanking" the mind, or stunning it into negativity, or other formsIntellect, 105:wandering thoughts and ideas, and holding the mind firmly and steadily focused or centered on theIntellect, 105:and that which we use to think with, the mind. Then there comes in the third factor, that which isIntellect, 105:The Thinker, the true Self, or the Soul. The mind, or the apparatus which the Thinker seeks to use.Intellect, 105:the work of the Thinker as he impresses upon the mind (when in a state of equilibrium) that whichIntellect, 105:The brain, which is in its turn impressed by the mind, acting as the agent for the Thinker, inIntellect, 106:about an at least momentary unification of the mind by the predominance of one mental group... ButIntellect, 106:matter will automatically tend to make the mind one-pointed. [107] A second answer might be given:Intellect, 107:it. True meditation is after all an attitude of mind and will grow out of an attitude ofIntellect, 107:therefore, of all our endeavor is to train the mind so as to make it our servant and not ourIntellect, 107:life and will thereby learn to regulate his mind as an apparatus for his thought. Let me emphasizeIntellect, 107:perseverance. This involves the fixing of the mind upon a particular object, or a chosen topic forIntellect, 108:enumerated as follows: The reorganization of the mind. The polarizing of the man in his mental,Intellect, 108:concentration gives opportunity for the mind to act upon whatever object lies within theIntellect, 109:and if the meditation is well conducted the mind never leaves its consideration of the object soIntellect, 109:its consideration of the object so chosen. The mind remains focused and is continuously activeIntellect, 109:the entire meditation period. Moreover, the mind is not allowed to do as it pleases with theIntellect, 109:the meditator all the time that he is using his mind. In meditation this consciousness of the mindIntellect, 109:mind. In meditation this consciousness of the mind being used is lost, but there can be noIntellect, 109:Emotional reactions are transcended and the mind is, therefore, left free to act in its own right.Intellect, 109:of thought never before achieved, because the mind in ordinary activity is always associated withIntellect, 109:contemplation, thought is transcended. When the mind is stunned into inaction by inhibition orIntellect, 109:nor used in meditation. To practise making the mind blank, is not only foolish, but actuallyIntellect, 110:find these words: "The gradual conquest of the mind's tendency to flit from one object to anotherIntellect, 110:the instantaneous attainment of an attitude of mind as a consequence of long practice. In theIntellect, 110:- the brain The doer - the Self The organ - the mind The impulse - energy Destiny - Karma." -Intellect, 110:needed is that we should get control of the mind and of the brain processes, so that the brainIntellect, 110:as He transmits them through the medium of the mind. The mind is regarded as in [111] the nature ofIntellect, 110:them through the medium of the mind. The mind is regarded as in [111] the nature of a sixth sense,Intellect, 111:made available to man. It is intended that the mind should serve a similar purpose. This isIntellect, 111:or reason..." "A man, moreover, must have a mind at ease... the body should be rested from bodilyIntellect, 111:through recollected senses, we rise past our own mind to the wonderful wisdom of God... Man risingIntellect, 111:wisdom of God... Man rising to the summit of his mind is exalted God." - Pfeiffer, Franz, MeisterIntellect, 111:pages 279, 47. Through the agency of the mind as a directed instrument, the soul can manipulate theIntellect, 112:not led to a negative or trance condition. The mind has been busy all the time, but busy in oneIntellect, 116:seek to apprehend the Plan as it exists in the mind of God and as it expresses itself through theIntellect, 116:Right at this point, Divinity is contacted. The mind ceases to function, and the true student ofIntellect, 119:be termed secular lines, for the use of the mind has been involved, and though the subject of theIntellect, 119:"object" or "seed thought." The educating of the mind to hold itself attentively upon a chosen ideaIntellect, 119:meditation, to achieve facility in forcing the mind to be one-pointed in any direction. The otherIntellect, 119:the possession of something that is called the mind, and proceeds then to fill it with information,Intellect, 120:few in number pass on to a real use of the mind through a profound interest in some science or someIntellect, 120:way of living, but the majority never attain mind control. Educational methods as we now have themIntellect, 120:the wide confusion as to the nature of the mind and as to the distinction between the mind and theIntellect, 120:the mind and as to the distinction between the mind and the brain. If the brain and the brain cellsIntellect, 121:book, Evolutionary Naturalism, when he says that mind can be regarded as a "physical category" andIntellect, 121:posit something more than matter, and regard the mind as distinct from the brain; they hold theIntellect, 121:of a specialized instrument by a gifted few; the mind should be used by all educated people, and atIntellect, 122:have the intelligent average citizen [122] whose mind is a theatre or rather a cinematograph,Intellect, 122:In the East, and by many in the West, the mind is regarded as separate and distinct from the brain.Intellect, 122:up his own point of view in another book, Life, Mind, and Spirit, as follows: "Spirit is nowiseIntellect, 122:"Spirit is nowise separable from life and mind, nor they from it. What is given for reflectiveIntellect, 122:is 'revealed' within us. Each of us is a life, a mind, and Spirit - an instance of life as one
