Week 24 & 23 Defenselessness
We have found that thought is the creative activity behind every constructive enterprise. We can, therefore, give nothing of more practical value than our thought.
Creative thought requires attention, and the power of attention is, as we have found, the weapon of the Superman. Attention develops concentration, and concentration develops Spiritual Power, and Spiritual Power is the mightiest force in existence.

Now, the only activity which the spirit possesses is the power to think.
Therefore, thought must be creative, because spirit is creative. This creative power is impersonal and your ability to think is your ability to control it and make use of it for the benefit of yourself and others.
I lift my hands to heaven
And stand in Defenselessness
Somewhere inside the churning
I hear a voice…
Deep Within the Soul
No Judgement here
I AM Free
To Just Be.
Law of least Effort – Accept people, situations, and events as they occur. Take responsibility for your situation and for all events seen as problems. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view.
~Hannel 23: 10
10. The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason, we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire. Many are constantly concentrating upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitable leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise? On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.
