This principle is strikingly illustrated by placing a handful of iron filings on a thin sheet of metal and playing a certain musical note near the sheet. Wondrously, the filings arrange themselves into a pattern. Change the musical note and the filings rearrange themselves into another pattern. Every sound has its vibrational pattern, and the visible filings demonstrate the invisible pattern of the sound. Our thoughts are like the sound, and the circumstances in life are like the iron filings. The filings have no volition or will of their own. They simply fall into the vibrational pattern of the sound. In the same way, automobiles, money, food, jobs, and relationships have no particular will of their own. Their nature is to follow the direction of the waves of thoughts that we radiate. Some say, “Look what I created!” Another way that could be said might be, “Look what I attracted!” The word circumstance neatly depicts the process: circum means around; stance means stand. Circumstances are the conditions that stand around us, magnetized to us by the central core of our thought-forms. Change the thoughts at the center of the energy field, and we change the conditions that stand around us. There is a basic rhythm to all God's creations - including us. We notice it when we are quiet enough to listen. Each of us has a natural rhythm. Life is simple when we hear, feel, and follow in harmony and rhythm. Meditation and visualization improve the ability to hear, feel, and become more sensitive to our inner self and the world around us. As we practice being quiet, the inner self teaches us and we will see that miracles are natural expressions of love.
