As explained by my dear and departed friend Neville.
This is the application of this victorious formula as a modem mystic reveals it today:
First: define your objective (not the manner of obtaining it) – but your objective, pure and simple; know exactly what it is you desire so that you have a clear mental picture of it.
Secondly: take your attention away from the obstacles which separate you from your objective and place your thought on the objective itself.
Thirdly: close your eyes and FEEL that you are already in the city or state that you would capture. Remain within this psychological state until you get a conscious reaction of complete satisfaction in this victory. Then, by simply opening your eyes, return to your former conscious state.
This secret journey into the desired state, with its subsequent psychological reaction of complete satisfaction, is all that is necessary to bring about total victory.
This victorious psychical state will embody itself despite all opposition. It has the plan and power of self-expression.
From this point forward, follow the example of Joshua, who, after psychologically dwelling in the desired state until he received a complete conscious reaction of victory, did nothing more to bring about this victory than to blow seven times on his trumpet.
The seventh blast symbolizes the seventh day, a time of stillness or rest, the interval between the subjective and objective states, a period of pregnancy or joyful expectancy.
This stillness is not the stillness of the body but rather the stillness of the mind – a perfect passivity, which is not indolence but a living stillness born of trust in this immutable law of consciousness.
Those not familiar with this law or formula for victory, in attempting to still their minds, succeed only in acquiring a quiet tension, which is nothing more than compressed anxiety.
But you, who know this law, will find that after capturing the psychological state which would be yours if you were already victoriously and actually entrenched in that city, will move forward towards the physical realization of your desires.
You will do this without doubt or fear, in a state of mind fixed in the knowledge of a pre-arranged victory.
You will not be afraid of the enemy, because the outcome has been determined by the psychological state that preceded the physical offensive; and all the forces of heaven and earth cannot stop the victorious fulfillment of that state.
Stand still in the psychological state defined as your objective until you feel the thrill of Victory.
Then, with confidence born of the knowledge of this law, watch the physical realization of your objective.
... Set your self, stand still and watch the
salvation of the Law with you...
