“We build and strengthen within ourselves the magnificent scene of the Kingdom of Love, and through the experience of such visualization we accomplish the sublimation of our own psychic life.
In a procedure of this kind, maintained over a lifetime of quiet devotion, we accomplish our citizenship in the realms of eternal truth. Thus we gradually create the radiant sphere in which we are going to live.
The peace in our own hearts is sufficient to all our needs.
The kindness which we feel and express gradually enfolds us and becomes the kindly universe in which we will dwell in peace forever.
All such good moods are ways of tuning into the eternal mood of goodness which exists in space.
The experience of the virtuous life is also the experience of the virtuous universe, which is the real world to which we must return regardless of any false beliefs which may lead us astray for a short time.
The universe of ideals can become the universe of realities. Nothing actually changes but men’s minds. When these minds seek the beautiful, they will find it.”
– Manly P. Hall: Excerpted from “TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM,” from a lecture given December 14, 1969. at The Philosophical Research Society.
