even who and what we should be attracted to. Thus, your action, reactions, thoughts and
emotions are inherently limited by the world around you, “the law of correspondence.”
However, humans are not merely conventional functions. We can change our thoughts and the
way we perceive the world through learning and creating new experiences. Thus, by modifying
our functions, we can re-program our thoughts and change our free-will.
It is easy to see changes occurring in nature and other individuals, yet not within ourselves.
Whether winter shifts into spring or a friend getting a promotion, we can easily see the process
of change. But when we begin changing ourselves, our goals, beliefs and values, we often forget
the fact that change does not happen instantaneously, it’s a process. Since we see ourselves
minute to minute it’s hard to see transform happening. Should we have the ability to step
outside of ourselves for a month or even a week, change would be noticeable. For this reason,
commitments need to be made, action taken and ideas developed on a consistent basis with
little regard of how you see yourself now. It’s easy in theory, difficult in fact.
Change in Thought:
In your daily life, whatever you spend the most time thinking about becomes your
reality. If you spend time thinking negative thoughts about what you don’t have or how life has
passed you by, then that is what you will get. On the other hand, if you can change that process
and replace those feelings with positive ones, you can achieve your dreams.
Each time you get a negative thought, you will need to develop a technique for recognizing it
and replacing it with a positive one. If you follow this process you cannot fail as long as you
keep focusing on the goal that you are passionate about.
For thousands of years man illuminated the night with a kerosene lantern. Even after the birth
of electricity in 1745 most believed we were meant to go through life with little change. He
believed oil was the only substance which could produces light and it took another 140 years
for Thomas Edison to build a viable electric lamp. Though he understood electricity Man had
not developed enough thought to understand its use.
Until the 1920s everyone owned horses for transport. Now we mass-produce automobiles.
1928 saw the first television but it took another 12 years before TV became conventional.
How did these inventions occur when man didn’t know, couldn’t feel, couldn’t see how to
proceed? The Law of Change.
Look at the last 6,000 years of mans history, the earliest know writings, patterns of change
emerged as information is shared. The more advanced and standardized script became, the
more information was shared and thus discovery of new ideas.
Why did it take 140 years to invent the light bulb when we were living in an age of cross
communication among cultures? It didn’t.
The story of the light bulb starts almost seventy years prior to Thomas Edison, in 1806.
Humphrey Davy, an Englishman, demonstrated an electric lamp to the Royal Society. Davy's
lamp produced light by creating a blinding electric spark between two charcoal rods, the same
Arch Lamp used in many of today’s spot lights. Then, in 1841, 38 years before Edison, a British
