Chapter 32 - The
Power of the Mind
Many occult teachings describe the power of the mind to make things appear by what is called 'precipitation from the astral plane through the etheric plane into the material world. Similarly a belief in the 'law of attraction' such that you can do things to get things has also found reception with those who lust after getting what they want.
Some black teachers were once asked why they were teaching their students that black people used to be Egyptian and could fly until white people came and ruined it for them. Their response was that empowerment and self-esteem were more important than truth.
Difficult times inflict reality upon us in such a way as to limit the foolishness we are willing to consider much less pursue. This is one reason Satan has worked to make the world prosperous. It was important to make the economic system free from anything tangible such as gold or silver because the creative use of debt, fractional reserve banking, trade deficits, and inflation has allowed a sort of house of cards built on assumed wealth to be used to finance a world saturated with entertainment and leisure such that almost every possible vanity and desire can be cultivated and pursued.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; - 2 Corinthians 10:5
Left unattended we can come to buy into or even construct our own delusions. Our imaginations can lead us fueled by the feelings we derive from their exercise in our minds. A person may feel superior to others and almost 'feed' on the sensations of pride and self-righteousness. We can even come to associate sensations of arousal and lust that can grow to addictive levels.
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, - Proverbs 6:18a
In more extreme cases, people can come to attempt surgical alteration to indulge their imaginings that they are of the opposite sex, or even dragons or space aliens. An almost constant bombardment of media, entertainment, and advertising can carry us into realms of imagination that can hold us as captive as any drug.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. - 2 Corinthians 11:3
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. - 2 Corinthians 4:4
It is Satan which works continuously to keep our minds distracted from the truth. He has in place methods that shape us from birth and constantly keep our minds turned towards self, sensations, ambitions, entertainment, and imprinted with expectations he has designed to keep us from considering reality rather than the artificial world he has constructed.
