Chapter 14 The Sixth Sense
The Sixth Sense has been referred to as the Creative Imagination. It is the receiving set of the brain. Ideas, plans, and thoughts flash into the mind which are known as hunches and if we follow these hunches we usually realize we have gained in opportunity or have been saved from danger. It is as if we have a guardian angel watching over us. It is only when we have mastered the principles described in former chapters of this book that we will be prepared to accept as truth the experiences that come with the sixth sense.
Mr. Napolean Hill says he know that there is a power, or a First Cause, or an intelligence, which permeates every atom of matter, and embraces every unit of energy perceptible to man. This is what he believes makes seeds to grow into plants, spring to follow winter in the same order every year, and for water to flow down hill in response to the law of gravity.
The intelligence may, through the principles of this philosophy, be induced to aid in transmuting DESIRES into concrete, or material form.
It is because of this knowledge, and because Mr. Hill and many other people in this group including myself have experimented with it and EXPERIENCED IT that we believe this intelligence may be induced to aid in transmuting DESIRES into concrete, or material form.
At this point I would like to share something from the Baha’i Writings:
“I created Thee Rich why dost thou bring Thyself down to poverty”
The above quote is what I use to get myself back on track when I am not on the path to becoming a success in my life.
