Lessons in the Science of the Infinite Spirit

by Malinda Cramer

"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

Lesson 3 - The Effect, or Fruit of Thought

Those who are working for effect are virtually striving to make this plane of existence a plane of cause, for it is both the subject and object of their consideration; subject, because they believe that effects can produce effects, and it is the object, because they are working to produce effects. The fact that they are thus striving is evidence of ignorance. Cease from striving to make the visible world produce true happiness for you - from seeking to make sensation a cause of real joy. Place not your heart, dear student, upon earthly things, or your consciousness upon the things of the past; but live in the presence of the One that is ever present, for this is Life eternal.

Truth

There is but one Life, which is Infinite Spirit; Infinite Spirit is the one Substance, which is Infinite Mind. There is but one Law, which is Infinite Love. There is but one Method of Creation or manifestation, which method is the act of Divine thinking. The Life of the One is the Life of all. The Substance of the One is the Substance of all; and produces all things. That Power which forms one thing forms all. That which loves one loves all. All are in and of one Source. As the One Spirit, which is no respecter of person, loved one, even our great Master, so does it love and respect all, even the smallest.

"Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of the Father which is in heaven." - Matt. vii: 17-22. As there is but one method of manifesting the Infinite Spirit; idea, thought and effect of thought, is the Trinity which includes the problem, solution and example of life; therefore thought is the means which must necessarily precede the expression of truth on the sense plane.

And by the word, deed and sensation we can know whether the nature of our thoughts and beliefs are at one with the Spirit or at one with the letter; whether they are truth or error. Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree evil fruit. Good thoughts are at one with Spirit, or the Divine Attributes. Their opposites are the errors that bring forth fruits opposite to the good.

The condition of the body is wholly dependent upon the quality of thought and the line of belief held in memory by us. Unless our thoughts be in the image and likeness of the Spirit, or unless they express the attributes of Divine Mind, their fruit will be delusion. When thought looks upon effects without knowing or understanding its own source, it accepts appearances as a basis from which to reason. Thoughts which are the opposite of the attributes of Divine Mind are the inharmony known as dis-ease. Thought forms and constructs; it grows the tree that brings forth sweet or bitter fruit - that is, harmonious or inharmonious expression. All forms, being the product of thought, are ever changing, according to the thought. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is his expression. If we seek to lay up treasures on earth, it is because we are attracted to the temporal; and where the thought is attracted there will the attention be centered. Thoughts or beliefs based upon appearances bring forth bitter fruit. Seek to know and love the Immortal (Spirit), for it is alone real.

As all visible things are first in idea, which is in the mind, and are builded by thought, they are subject to change by the change of thought; for nothing but effect can be affected by thought. "Memory is the only friend that grief can call its own." To let go of the past and live in the present, and in the presence of Spirit, is to live in Life. To let go of all thought of nonpossession and recognize the perfect, now, is to live in the fullness of Spirit - the kingdom of heaven. Now is the eternal, present; what we do not recognize as being present we do not enjoy. Then, recognize health, power, knowledge, good - in short, recognize wholeness that now you are complete, in the Infinite Good, and you will enjoy it and have peace and rest. The living God is around you, above you, and through you all; so you are protected and shielded by the perfect good at all times. In this consciousness we find ourselves above the plane of expression and limitation. Recognize this truth, and it will make you happy and free.

Christ came into the world to teach the way to truth and life, and to teach what being is and the purpose of creation, and what thought is and the power of thought, and the fruits of thinking. He demonstrated the power of understanding. "Be ye perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." The belief in imperfection is misconception. The Infinite creates everything within itself; and all that it makes is good, for there is naught but good from which to create or in which to produce. Then, put from you all beliefs of imperfection from time to time, when they would arise, that you may keep in remembrance the truth that God is All in all. If you have believed yourself sinful - the opposite in being from God - you have been in error; the proof that you were in error is the suffering and misery that it brought you. You, being the thinker, can change your thought and believe yourself divine, a child of God - and that He is your life. Then, think of your life as a perfect one, for there is but One Life; this is the truth that frees, and brings peace, that passeth understanding. Understanding is perfect seeing and hearing. Truth grows the tree of life in consciousness.

"Not every one that saith, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of the Father, which is in heaven." We know that if our thoughts be at one in quality with the attributes of Spirit, we are doing the will of the Father, which is our life. To work in concert with the Father is to be conscious of the kingdom of heaven.

As the Thinker is one and is capable of all thought, so thought is capable of being expressed in myriad forms of word, deed and sensation. "Ye shall know them by their fruits." Every unalterable truth spoken within consciousness helps to grow the tree of Eternal Life within you, and to bring forth illumination and power. This is doing the will of the Father, the fruit of which is manifested good, peace upon earth, and good will to men.

Conclusion

Appearances, the effect of thought, which we have been dealing with in this lesson, should be studied from the plane of knowledge, which is Spirit - the Creator, not from the plane of effect. If this be done, the student will learn their nature, that they are merely appearances of thought; and that through which we recognize them is nothing other than thought. Thought recognizes its own appearances; how could an appearance, which is nothing real, recognize anything! - truly it is without power to do so; therefore, when we say that we see, hear, feel, or in any way sense effect, we mean that we recognize it in thought, and it is held in consciousness by thought; and, if we have no thought about it, we have no recognition of it.

New Thought Day was declared by James Edgerton on August 23rd, 1915
During research while expanding the free New Thought Library, one of the ministers came across an interesting quote from early New Thought Alliance President James A. Edgerton: "'The truth, once announced, has the power not only to renew but to extend itself. New Thought is universal in its ideals and therefore should be universal in its appeal. Under the guidance of the spirit, it should grow in good works until it embraces many lands and eventually the whole world.' ~ New Thought Day, August 23rd , 1915."
