A longer share. From Neville Goddard's "The Power Of Awareness" Chapter 14
The principle of "Least Action" governs everything in physics. from the path of a planet to the path of a pulse of light.
Least Action is the minimum of energy, multiplied by the minimum of time. Therefore, in moving from your present state to the state desired, you must use the minimum of energy and take the shortest possible time.
Your journey from one state of consciousness to another is a psychological one, so, to make the journey, you must employ the psychological equivalent of " Least Action" and the psychological equivalent is mere assumption.
The day you fully realise the power of assumption, you discover that it works in complete conformity with this principle. It works by means of attention, minus effort. Thus, with least action, through an assumption, you hurry without haste and reach your goal without effort.
Because creation is finished, what you desire already exists.
It is excluded from your view because you can only see the contents of your own consciousness. It is the function of an assumption to call back the excluded view and restore full vision.
It is not the world, but your assumptions that change. An assumption brings the invisible into sight. It is nothing more nor less than seeing with the eye of God, i.e. imagination.
" For the Lord seeth not as a man seeth, for man looketh on the outward appearance but the Lord looketh on the heart."
The heart is the primary organ of sense, hence the first cause of experience. When you look "on the heart", you are looking at assumptions: assumptions determine your experience. Watch your assumptions with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life. Assumptions have the power of objective realisation.
Every event in the visible world is the result of an assumption or idea in the unseen world.
The present moment is all-important, for it is only in the present moment that our assumptions can be controlled.
