The Finding of the Third Eye
Vera Stanley Alder
This is a guide to attainment of awareness through the path outlined by ancient wisdom, comparing it with the discoveries of modern science.

1 "'Man, Know Thyself' was the ancient command written above the temple door. If we persevere with this fascinating study we will find that in the form of every human being the universe is presented to us."

2 "'Love thy neighbour as thyself' – so simple and so clear! And quite enough to change this tortured earth to a lovely place."

3 "The Wisdom Teaching, down the ages, has come forth from God and thrown the needed light upon the ways of men. It has taken the form outwardly of the world religions, but has always presented to those whose eyes were open those esoteric truths and those clear instructions whereby man can find his own soul and his way back to the centre of life."

4 "Man is said to contain within himself a facsimile of and a link with everything in the universe."

5 "The world is built up of thousands of differing rates of vibrations, all these having their origin in the One original vibration of the mind of the Creator."

6 "Mankind, as well as all of Nature, is to rise out of the imperfect state, to become complete and creative, and to develop the full quota of qualities and capacities."

7 "Confucius believed in the one God over all."

8 "When the aspirant can grow to love his neighbours for their struggles and faults, and utterly abstain from any critical feeling, then 'will all things be added unto him.' There will be no barriers to prevent it. Like attracts like, and his own honesty and charity will inevitably draw to him as to a magnet all that is good."

9 "Everything is…intimately connected with everything else."

10 "Service leads to working with others, the beginning of that Universal Brotherhood which is inevitably and actually coming into being before our eyes."

11 "Nothing is lost, nothing is wasted, everyone finally reaches the same goal of perfection."

12 "Men and women have the choice as to what they will do with this power within them. Shall they exhaust it in the various self-indulgences, both mental and physical, or shall they use it to become creative in the realms of the spirit and higher mind – a force for good? It is this tremendous choice which every human being has to face."

13 "The greatest things we can have – wisdom, health and power – are all-pervading and cannot be divided. They can only develop and be shared."

14 "He whose aspirations are high, sincere and enduring may begin at once to achieve Godhood and acquire first-hand knowledge of the secrets of the universe."

15 "If the pure and original root of these different [religious] beliefs can be uncovered, it will be found to be identical in most respects. In each case we will discover that the One God over all was acknowledged."

16 "Man has the capacity to connect his mind with the highest unseen cosmic intelligence – the mind of Nature."

17 "Believe in the One great Divinity."

18 "Love is the magnet which holds all life together. Its attraction is so strong that nothing can resist it."

19 "The Creative Force within us is one single force."

20 "Enlightenment has ever poured fourth over humanity from the heart of God."

21 "The cry for world-unity, peace, brotherhood and the casting down of barriers is increasingly making itself heard."

22 "The world appears to be made up of the energy of the Being or Mind behind it, whose idea it was!"

23 "All of life is built upon the law of opposites, as in the negative and positive poles of electricity, day and night, heat and cold, summer and winter, good and evil. The constant friction between these opposites causes development, change, adjustment – in other words originality, or the free-will which functions throughout all creation, and through which creation itself learns eventually to become creative."

24 "Man is a god in the making, and the goal is waiting before him."

25 "Man is an animal, but he is an animal embodying a god."
