Hill's description of the Mastermind reminds me of Christ's revelation to his disciples:
Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them However Hill does not share it that way, but I think the [principle is the same/ If we are to succeed in any thing there has to be a meeting of the minds of all involved. The spiritual force thought he does not say it directly, is "FAITH" No matter how nebulous the dream may be, (and we have dreams for a reason) the fact that we can conceive i,t is proof or evidence that it can be done. the bible puts it like this
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
The focus of our dreams are made and created by faith. Faith is the substance of the item in the dream. Faith is the creative power the Hill is speaking about. Nothing in this world exists without someone have a dream and the faith to reach it that drives the person. With a mastermind group faith is reinforced, amplified and hearts are empowered when all participants of the group have a singleness of mind and take it to heart then take the action to back up what they say.
The power of the mind and the heart can see the end result before the task is set out upon. Inventors see the end product, it's composition, it's application and it's functioning long before it is constructed He then brings in people who can catch the vision to go to work to complete the project. He may need plastics and metals formed, electronic circuits developed and more he see the substance before had. I do not ascribe to the fact that money is power, it is a tool to accomplish great and noble things that bring glory to God; But I understand how people can see it that way. Remember the little girl that asked for the $50 cents, she was not wealthy but she commanded the power to get what she wanted. The 50 cents for her mother she would not be denied and she would not go back empty handed. If she could do that can we imagine what would happen with a mastermind group. We cannot see faith, but we can witness it's effect and it's results.
It is one thing to attain riches, but we need the power of self control and plan to maintain it, and if we don't have that power,we can get it fro one or more people in our mastermind group
One last thing. There is positive faith and negative faith, the streams he speaks about is so true Positive faith adds to our lives as we habitually use it, but Negative faith takes away from those who habitually use that.
