are to prove such statements to be facts in our experience, we shall be compelled to do more than announce a principle, no matter how true it may be.
There is no doubt about the immutability and the avail ability of the Law. The Law is Infinite. It is right where we happen to be at any given time. It occupies all space and fills every form with differentiations of Itself. The Law also flows through us, because It flows through everything, and since we exist, It must be in and through us. This is the crux of the whole matter. Infinite and immutable as the Law is—ever-present and available as It must be, the potential possibility of all human probability—It must flow through us in order to manifest for us.
It has been proved that by thinking correctly and by a conscious mental use of the law of Mind, we can cause It to do definite things for us, through us. By conscious thinking, we give conscious direction to It, and It, consciously or unconsciously, responds to our advance along the line of our conscious, or subjective, direction.
It must and will respond to everyone, because It is Law and law is no respecter of persons. We are surrounded by an intelligent force and substance, from which all things come—the ultimate Essence, in the invisible and subjective world, of all visible and objective forms and conditions. It is around us in its original state, ready and willing to take form through the impulse of our creative belief. It works for us by flowing through us. This law we did not create; this law we cannot change. We can use It correctly only as we understand and use It according to Its nature.
Hence, it follows that if we believe that It will not work, It really works by appearing to "not work." When we believe that It cannot and will not, then, according to the principle, It DOES NOT. But when It does not, It still does —only It does according to our belief that It will not. This is our own punishment through the law of cause and effect;
