We have an obligation to ourselves and to humanity to take this step – to take responsibility for our own minds – for the mind is far more influential than matter.
The most powerful material forces, such as weapons of war or miraculous medicines, originate with intentions of mind.
Even horrific natural disasters, far beyond our power to control, can be viewed as important lessons or transformed into human triumph through the mind’s creative power.
