The chapter on the sixth sense was included, because the book is designed for the purpose of presenting a complete philosophy by which individuals may unerringly guide themselves in attaining whatever they ask of life. The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. The finishing point is that brand of KNOWLEDGE which leads to understanding—understanding of self, understanding of others, understanding of the laws of Nature, recognition and understanding of HAPPINESS.
This sort of understanding comes in its fullness only through familiarity with, and use of the principle of the sixth sense, hence that principle had to be included as a part of this philosophy, for the benefit of those who demand more than money.
Having read the chapter, you must have observed that while reading it, you were lifted to a high level of mental stimulation. Splendid! Come back to this again a month from now, read it once more, and observe that your mind will soar to a still higher level of stimulation. Repeat this experience from time to time, giving no concern as to how much or how little you learn at the time, and eventually you will find yourself in possession of a power that will enable you to throw off discouragement, master fear, overcome procrastination, and draw freely upon your imagination. Then you will have felt the touch of that unknown “something” which has been the moving spirit of every truly great thinker leader, artist, musician, writer, statesman. Then you will be in position to transmute your DESIRES into their physical or financial counterpart as easily as you may lie down and quit at the first sign of opposition. Quote by : Hill
At the beginning of the chapter Hill says about the sixth sense, that: It can be assimilated, understood, and applied ONLY by first mastering the other twelve principles.
At the beginning of the chapter, I was a little troubled, knowing that I had not mastered all of the other 12 principles. Then at the end of the chapter, I was thrilled to see that Hill has a thought that we will be in position to transmute, as we are in the process of learning and growing into what we are reaching for, and we will attain, if we continue step by step. This will become as easy as it used to be to turn away at the first hint of discouragement.
I feel so blessed for the rich instructions we can glean from each and every mentoring call. Thank you everyone for your thoughts. I am often impressed when a story is told and someone says, someone on the call needed to hear that. That someone has often been me!
