The problem for most of us is that we focus our attention almost exclusively on the objective world – on the world of Effects – and forget that our life purpose is to concentrate on the upward spiral of consciousness, which is Cause.  When we enter into periods of seeming inactivity in life, which we may think of as seasons of dryness, and feel that we are accomplishing nothing, let’s remember that the energy spiral is simply lowering its rate vibration in order to move into a new and higher level of activity … any experience of contraction is a gathering of power, power which will flow according to the clearest picture that we hold in mind.
