12 Character Of The Mental Atmosphere Of The Human

The doer's mental destiny is of the character of the mental atmosphere, comprising intellectual endowments and their relation to the physical body.

  • All the thoughts one has created which have not been balanced are in his mental atmosphere and circulate there.
  • If this atmosphere be thought of in terms of distance and dimension, most of the thoughts may be said to cycle in zones as far away as those of the stars.
  • The present life is not affected by such distant thoughts.
  • Those which affect the present life circulate in nearer zones and in that part of the mental which is in the active psychic atmosphere of the human.
  • The present character of the mental atmosphere depends more upon moral than upon intellectual endowments.

Human thinking can go on only within the human's mental atmosphere, and that atmosphere will not function except in accordance with the character of his psychic atmosphere.

  • The character of these two atmospheres is definitely established at any given time and so is determined the nature of the thinking that can then go on in the human.
  • In different human beings it opposes, forbids, favors or permits certain kinds of thinking.
  • The character of the mental atmosphere has been made by thinking.
  • The kind of thinking it opposes or favors is conditioned by the result of prior thinking.

Things cannot be desired and cannot enter the psychic atmosphere unless the character of that atmosphere will permit.

  • Even if the thing becomes an object of desire in the psychic atmosphere the desire cannot enter the mental atmosphere unless the character of that will permit it.
  • Thinking generates thoughts and issues them, and elaborates them before and after they have become thoughts and are issued.
  • Thinking works out and changes the design in them and thinking makes the form for the design and exteriorizes the form through an act, an object or an event.

Men are not conscious of what their thinking produces.

  • After a thought has been exteriorized and psychic results of pain or pleasure, joy or sorrow follow, thinking upon them changes the mental atmosphere.
  • After the conception or entertainment of a thought and even after it is issued and so long as it has not reached the form plane, the thought may be revoked or dissipated by thinking.
  • This will be done because conscience is heeded, because of self-interest or because of fear.
  • It is dissipated when thinking directs the Light of the Intelligence into the thought, dissolves it and separates the Light and the desire from the object to which it is attached, which together made up the thought.
  • Desire and the diffused Light then return to the psychic atmosphere and to the mental atmosphere from which they came.

In each case the atmospheres are affected by the thinking.

  • If the dissolution was because the doer recognized and respected conscience, the atmospheres are improved and a tendency to reject similar thoughts is strengthened.
  • Where the dissolution is brought about because of fear or expectation of an advantage, the atmospheres are vitiated and ready to entertain a similar thought in the future.
