From The Magic of Space, some words of assistance for overcoming this crippling, destructive emotional virus while learning to be more conscious of your power to turn your mind toward beneficial things. This will be a critical skill in the coming period. A sample: "You are given the power of intelligence to choose those things to which you wish to respond. Your development will depend a great deal upon how you are able to choose the unseen vibrations. No one is immune to vibrations, whether he is conscious of them or not."
From The Magic of Space, the beginning of Chapter IV, “Fear of Inner and Outer Space.”
There is one thing that every man and woman should and must learn – and that is not to have fear. Fear is a dangerous disease, and likely to spread. Of course, everyone is more or less subject to outside influences; it is only natural to be receptive. If you were not, you would be getting into all kinds of danger. You are constantly receiving warnings, and you would not be able to learn, see or feel anything if you were not receptive. The mind must receive before it can give out – and it must acquire before it can serve.
Do not try to stop the receptive attitude of mind. Work in harmony with nature’s forces, and do not antagonize anything. Be the chooser, however, of what you want to receive. You are given the power of intelligence to choose those things to which you wish to respond. Your development will depend a great deal upon how you are able to choose the unseen vibrations. No one is immune to vibrations, whether he is conscious of them or not. The difference between the one who is developed and the one who is not is that the former is conscious of what he sees and therefore knows what is transpiring, while the other does not. There is nothing to be afraid of in developing the higher senses, except your fears. Set these aside and proceed.
You must cultivate acquaintances who are in harmony with your way of thinking. Do not be selfish as your knowledge increases, but give out some of the truths you discover to others. Help others to grow, if you wish to grow yourself. Resolve to use your power and the higher faculties you develop for constructive and good purposes only. This is very important to your advancement. No matter how good or how evil you have been in the past, be determined that you are going to start a new life with the very best there is in you, and make use of that best to bring out other knowledge.
