The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles

From The Science of Getting Rich, Chapter 4

The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D. Wattles

THOUGHT is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance. The stuff from which all things are made is a substance which thinks, and a thought of form in this substance produces the form.

Original Substance moves according to its thoughts; every form and process you see in nature is the visible expression of a thought in Original Substance. As the Formless Stuff thinks of a form, it takes that form; as it thinks of a motion, it makes that motion. That is the way all things were created. We live in a thought world, which is part of a thought universe. The thought of a moving universe extended throughout Formless Substance, and the Thinking Stuff moving according to that thought, took the form of systems of planets, and maintains that form. Thinking Substance takes the form of its thought, and moves according to the thought. Holding the idea of a circling system of suns and worlds, it takes the form of these bodies, and moves them as it thinks. Thinking the form of a slow-growing oak tree, it moves accordingly, and produces the tree, though centuries may be required to do the work. In creating, the Formless seems to move according to the lines of motion it has established; the thought of an oak tree does not cause the instant formation of a full-grown tree, but it does start in motion the forces which will produce the tree, along established lines of growth.

Every thought of form, held in thinking Substance, causes the creation of the form, but always, or at least generally, along lines of growth and action already established.

The Science of Getting Rich was written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910.
Wallace also published a lesser known book "The Science of Being Well" in 1910.
Of course The Science of Getting Rich regained popularity in modern times because Rhonda Byrne said that her daughter Hayley, had given Rhonda a copy of the book to help her recover from her breakdown.

Wallace's daughter Florence said that Wallace used creative visualization.
