“The Lord is our ruler, shelter, and supreme controller, and his primeval spirit dwells within the mortal soul. The Eternal Witness to vice and virtue dwells within man’s heart. Let us long meditate on the adorable and divine Vivifier; let his spirit fully direct our thoughts. From this unreal world, lead us to the real! From darkness lead us to the light! From death guide us to immortality!” (UB, 131:4.3)
Thought Adjuster: “Because of the severe abuse of human power persuasion, the term Mind Control has taken on a negative connotation. Illegitimate infringement over others' thinking amounts to brainwashing—a far cry from the soft touch of the benevolent mental influence of your indwelling divine Indweller. Its sacred mission statement is to enrich your thinking without ever impeding on your free will prerogative. It is a consensual agreement, never a dictatorial measure.
Sperm has to penetrate an egg to engender a new life through fusion. Just the same, divine thinking, when allowed to penetrate your mind, fertilizes your thought process, disclosing which timely steps are yours to take to ‘eventuate’ your divinely-conceived matrix of perfection.
The entire creation is a ‘controlled environment,’ as the Creator assumes full responsibility for the fruits of His imaginative mind. From that higher perspective, the word ‘control’ has a positive flair that cannot but instill you with hope and faith. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain by willingly falling into step with the informed input of your divine Controller. He regulates the flow of your thought patterns, which, if unsupervised, yield mighty traffic jams. His subliminal injunctions admonish you to stop in dangerous mental tracks to carpool with Him.
Picture yourself as chauffeuring such Royalty who insists on riding shotgun. He keeps an ever-watchful eye on the map He holds on His lap, helping you negotiate the bumps in the road, steering you away from danger zones, and coming up with providential shortcuts. If you fail to thank Him now, as your mind is preoccupied with the stress of driving under difficult conditions, you will certainly do it later. It is, indeed, preconized to Drive Under the Influence of Spirit, as “the great Controller makes no mistakes.” (UB, 2:1.2)
