“Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow.”
— Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim
The Need for Change
Napoleon Hill once quoted: "Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true."
This emphasizes man's unique ability to think — not just to think, but to think so that his dreams will be fulfilled. Though we may come from different walks of life, we generally want the same things. We want to be happy, to be free from conflict and pain, to be successful, healthy and well.
Yet obviously, looking at the suffering, chaos and uncertainty that plague the world we live in, we are unhappy. We are not getting the things we want.
It's time that we try to change this status quo it is time for positive change.
This change needs to begin with us, at the individual, personal level. It is foolhardy to expect any large-scale transformation of our world, yet when we begin with ourselves, we light the way for a more positive, hope-filled future. At the same time, we create for ourselves a better life and a greater chance of achieving our wishes and dreams.
The Real Cause of All Problems
A spiritual master revealed to his highest disciples this esoteric secret: that all problems, whatever their nature may be, have but one common cause. This cause is non-attunement to one's spiritual base, which is the very essence of each person. When we are out of touch with our spiritual nature, this manifests as any of the many problems that plague ordinary human existence. We may experience it as a physical disease, as financial lack, or as a relationship problem. We may experience it as pain, suffering, poverty, hopelessness, anger, desolation, emptiness. However it manifests, it is but one problem in reality—the problem of non-attunement to our true, divine self.
Thus, the solution to any problem is simple and straightforward. Attune to the Real and Spiritual within yourself, attune to goodness—attune to God, if we prefer to call it such—and immediately set to motion the process that will eventually, if not immediately, solve the problem you are faced with.
Method of Attunement
This is a meditation technique that enables one to attune with God, the Cosmic, and to the Spirit that is the ultimate reality. It is simple and easy, and can be done in just about seven minutes. Anyone who performs it should do so at the prescribed time of 8:00 p.m. - 8:07 p.m. (Manila time).
In a private room where you will not be disturbed, sit in silence. Close your eyes, put your hands on your lap, with the palms down. Relax. Empty your mind of all thoughts and mundane concerns. Be at peace.
When you have done this, focus your attention on your very being. Visualize yourself as imbued with the attributes of Joy, Peace, Harmony, Vitality, Infinite Goodness, Power, Love, and Kindness. Permeate your whole being with each attribute, one at each turn. Vividly feel each emotion, letting it fill and flood your entire being, until you feel yourself becoming the very embodiment of those attributes.
At this point, you must forget who you are and where you are, and be completely engulfed in the experience of yourself as joy, peace, harmony, vitality, and so on.
Afterwards, stop your visualization and relax. Just be, stay in a passive state for a few moments. Then rise and continue with your usual routine for the evening.

Simple, Yet Efficient
The beauty of the technique lies in its simplicity and efficacy. When done properly and regularly, it will produce amazing results that will be felt in all aspects of your life. It will have beneficial effects on your general disposition, outlook, emotions and health. These will then translate to positive outcomes related to your work or profession, creative endeavors, social relationships, and your well-being as a whole.
However, we urge that you do not just take our word for it. Instead, test out this technique by actually doing it and then experiencing the effects firsthand. Do it for 40 days, remembering to start at the appointed time (see next page for the worldwide schedule).
At each time that you do the exercise, hundreds of people—and possibly thousands more in the near future—will be doing it with you simultaneously, thus exponentially magnifying its effect and efficiency. It will be a synchronous and global out flowing of positive thought and energy, engulfing the entire planet, cleansing it of negativity, and enveloping it with pure, joyful, sacrosanct thoughts. It will be a worldwide prayer of joy, a rejoicing in and affirmation of the glory of Spirit, goodness, and God.
“Joy is prayer, Joy is strength, Joy is love, Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”
— Mother Theresa
How does it Work?
The technique puts to practice the power of positive thinking, a principle that has been around for centuries, and that has guided great men to success and achievement. It also employs the Law of Attraction, which states that we attract what we think. If we fill our minds with good thoughts, and do so with intensity, emotion and focus, then these good things will come into our life. When we perform the exercise given, we must therefore do so with attentiveness and concentration, and not just go through the motions. We must also do it regularly, that is, daily at 8:00pm (Manila time), so that it becomes a habit—a constant and repeated sprinkling of good thoughts and positive energy into the fertile soil of our subconscious mind, whose abundant rewards we will reap in due time.
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can change his life by changing the attitude of mind.”
The Mystical Experience as the Finest Emotion
Beyond its expected benefits, the very experience of the technique is itself highly rewarding. Attunement to the Spirit is a mystical experience that every human being should have the opportunity to feel. In the words of Albert Einstein, the mystical is "the most beautiful thing we can experience. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
Immersing ourselves each time in the purest and highest of all thoughts, in attunement to God or the Universal Life Force, will promote spiritual development. In time, it will lead to the Samadhi or Cosmic Consciousness, the coveted goal of mystical practice.
Albert Einstein was a mystic who believed in the great power and unplumbed mysteries of the human mind.
The inner transformation that this practice will bring is like the metamorphosis of the butterfly. From the limiting cocoon of self-centeredness and acquisitiveness, the mind is freed to soar unbridled into the sky of Spirit, our true home and nature. There, even for just a few minutes, the individual elevates his being to the level of Godhood, enjoying perfect peace and harmony, and communing with the highest and noblest ideals.
The whole process of transformation may be slow, but getting to the goal is certain. This transformation is real, and it happens every day, as a fact of life, in the natural world all around us.
And as the butterfly flies from flower to flower, we encourage you to share word of this technique from friend to friend. Practice it yourself first, then once you have proven its efficacy; let other people in your life know about it. Share with them your knowledge; give them this pamphlet or a copy of it, so that they too can benefit from its simple yet powerful application. Good karma is earned with the sharing of knowledge, especially of knowledge that will transform a person's life into one filled with joy, goodness and peace. The more you share this with others, the greater the material and spiritual benefits will be for you.
"You are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within you. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
— Nelson Mandella
