,1 Prosperity is a state of mind in whicD one has happiness and peace

within and about oneself. Some people may have a few thousand
dollars in the bank and co~sider themselves prosperous, while others
may have a million and feel that they are not prosperous, as yet.
j Prosperity is not only financial, but also includes areas. of love,
health and happiness. Having one of these things without the others
is not true prosperity.
Prosperity is usually thought of only in terms of finances but such
thinking is erroneous. The mind must feel a "wealth" about life in
an areas. To have a mental attitude that works for financial pros-
perity, one should think of oneself as also being prosperous in
peace, love, wi sdom, health, etc. The mind, then, more COMPLETELY
accepts that 1i fe has a great deal to offer. I f a person feels
impoverished in love, that area of one1s mind o~ thinking will spill
over into another area of the mind where thinking about one's finances
takes place. Whenthis happens, a person will not be as effective in
helping himself financially, by having the right mental attitude that
breeds prosperity.

Then, what is the RIGHT MENTALATTITUDE for attracting prosperity?

It is an attitude of CONTINUALEXPECTANCY.A state of mind that is
ALWAYSOPENto new ideas, inspirations and intuition flowing from the
Higher God-Mind within oneself. It is a state of mind that NEVER
accepts financial defeat. It is a state of mind that ALWAYSKNOWS
that God, as the manifesting Universe, is one's ONLYTRUESOURCEof
supply and prosperity. It is a mind that finds peace in these
uths, and through that peace, which makes the mind clear, new
i~iration, leading to greater prosperity.


Together with being a state of mind, prosperity is also a state of

-Frequent places in your city where there is affluence. "Pick up on
the psychic vibrations. Let your being be permeated with prosper-

-Go into the finest stores. Try on expensiv~ clothing, even if you
don~t have the money to buy at the moment. Get the psychic vibra-

-Keep all channels open in your mind a~ to how prosperity may reach

of having the money to purchase it. It may, instead, be traded to
you, or even given to you. "

Each day, go into a subconscious level of meditation and give your-

self the following thought affirmations. Repeat each one to your-
self at least three times. Then, select one that particularly
appeals to yoy and write it down on a small sh~et of paper or an
index card. Carry it with you during your daily activities, so that
you may read it many times during the day. Each time you do, you
are further influencing your mind into the type of mental attitude
that attracts prosperity, both physically and spiritually.

Lesson 2
New Dimensions in Spiritual Understanding and Practice

. Copyright (c), 1974, by Dr. Paul L. Masters


Your conscious mental attitude, the thoughts you think each day, has
the power to invoke Mystical Power that can make success and happi-
ness a real ity in your "'1He. Mystical Power i s tb~ Universal
Pr~sence of Cosmic Intelligence, or God, which has Its Presen,~_~
the c-enfercff---,:henuman-ma: That power whfch created" you is
within you and can be reached in many ways, the most fundamental of
which is through a CONSCIOUS MENTALATTITUDEthat can call IT forth.


The Mystical Power of your mind is always trying to release Itself

into expression in your life. In reality, It alone is the TRUESELF
of your identity. Whenyou think positively on a conscious level of
your mind, the Mystical Power of your God-S~lf_~as an opportunity_tp
e~I~-?s through you. Tms is because -the-NATURItof yoiir -GOd-t,f;nd is
POSITIvE:--rrrli ng- your mind with Higher, Pos i ti ve Thought Energi es
allows the opening for Higher Positive Universal Thought Energies to
enter into your life. On the other hand, negative thought energies,
'. filling the conscious mind, recede back into your personal subcon-
scious and form an inner psychic wall or barrier there against the
emergence of your Higher Thought Energies, or Mystical Power.


While maintaining a conscious positive mental attitude about every-

thing in one's life is essential, it is most effective when positive
thinking has a spiritual base. In other words, spiritually-bas.ed
positive t~inking is_a.-re.sJ,JJ1 of conscious realizatjon that ASsururE

mind. This is part of what is termed Spiritual ESP in Metaphysicat
Sci ence. The tonsci ous mind recei ves fl ashes of i nspi rati on, m;
di recti on, as to what to do in 1He and when to do it. Together
with this, the negative thought energy failure patterns, that rule
the subconscious mind, are replaced with the Positive Higher Energy
of your God-Mind. In a psychic sense, whatever we have in our con-"
scious and subconscious mind is telepathically being broadcast out_
With Mystical Power influencing both the conscious and subconscious,
positive results will come from such telepathy.

_study". To
accomplish this requires real contact with our inner True Selfhood.
In Metaphysical Science, we accomplish this by mastering the art of
deep meditation. In the University's meditation course entitled,
~Meditation Dynamics,~ a number of techniques are taught for achieving
deep meditational consciousness. However, these techniques, no matter
how good, have to be reinforced by the conscious mental attitude of
the student of Metaphysical Science.

In the East, for an example, when students wish to study meditation

for the aim of achi evi ng an expansi on of consci ousness, they must
adhere to a stri ct manner of 1i vi ng. Thi s requi rement is to assure
that their conscious mental attitude will be._p-ositive and__open___to_
higher states of spiritua1_~ons_cLQ1Isness-,-,rrn the West, such strict
manners of living wouldlbe shunned or regarded as too extreme and not
compatible with Western living., Therefore, in the teaching of Meta-
physi ca1 Sci ence, we make an adjustment for the 1ack of an austere
style of living by utilizing meditational methods for control of the
more surface layers of the mind. It is through these surface layers
that Higher Consciousness must pass if the student is to have a true
expansion of inner consciousness. . - ..- -_. ._-

It must be emphasized that without the proper conscious mental atti-

tude and, thus, a proper subconscious attitude, a psychic blockage of
sorts exists between the conscious mind and the Higher or God-Mind.
It is difficult for Higher Consciousness to pass through and be real-
ized by the conscious mind. For this reason, in Metaphysical Science,
we place considerable emphasis upon the conscious mental attitude of
the student. Those people who are thinking negatively on a conscious
level most of the time and filling their subconscious mind with nega-
tivity, will not have as much of the experience of their Higher Con-
sciousness as those students who maintain a positive and constructive
mental attitude.

The quickest way to rid oneself of negativity is to focus the mind on

TRUTH; that truth being SELF-TRUTH. When, in the midst of negativity
we can remi nd our cGnsci ous mind of the truth of WHOand WHATwe
really are, a peace,' an understanding, and a wisdom fill our being.
In truth, our REALITY ;s GOD expressing through physical form and
matter. This is what Christ conveyed when he said, lithe Fathet and I
are~~E. 11 -Hea"d-ncjt~iTI~tanj t .iu.st_:JQr~.n'-ms~If~'-fbr-neaTsosaj d~A-ll
pf YOUare EQUALunto m~.~ By the real i zati on of these -truths withfn-
your conscious_mind, _negativity - built up from your false selfhood~
9-uickly passes..

Also, when Christ said, IIKnow the truth and the truth shall set you
free, 11 he referred to thi s real i zati on of ONENESSwi th the Creator,
through which negativity vanishes. At the same time, one's conscious
mind is able to receive the KINGDOMOF HEAVENwithin, or in other
words, experience the conscious reality of your Spiritual Self.

For Establishing a Mystically Invoking Consciousness

Every day, for the next several days, read this entire list of affjrma-
tions in the morning to start your day. After you have done this,
select one affirmation; go into an instantaneous state of meditation
and program your mind with it, as follows:
"Many the. dag, the. 6o,Uow-i.J1ga66-i.ltmat-i.onw-i.££ e.nte.1t my
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ."
You may choose to write the affirmation you have selected on a small
sheet of paper or an index card. Whenever you have a break from your
schedule, take it out and read it to yourself a few times, being certain
that the meaning is accepted by your mind.
