THE LAW OF SUBSTITUTION


There are a few great laws that govern all thinking, just as there are a few fundamental laws in chemistry. We know that thought controls is the key of destiny, and in order to learn thought control we have to know and understand these laws.

One of the great mental laws is the Law of Substitution. This means that the only way to get rid of a certain thought is to substitute another one for it. You cannot dismiss a thought directly. You can do so only by substituting another one for it. If I say to you, "Do not think of the Statue of Liberty," of course, you immediately think of it. If you say, "I am not going to think of the Statue of Liberty," that is thinking about it. But if you become interested in something else, you forget all about the Statue of Liberty - and this is a case of substitution.

When negative thoughts come to you, do not fight them, but think of something positive. Preferably think of God; but if that is difficult at the moment, turn your attention to something quite different.


But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil... (Matthew 5:39).

With hi is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding (Job 12:13).
