This article is about a book titled "THE SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH" written way back in 1910 by a man named Wallace D. Wattle. The principles promulgated by this man if followed, will make you rich with mathematical certainty. For the principles are not philosophical but pragmatical.
He stated that "There is a thinking stuff (God or Supreme Being) from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.
E.g. assuming you want to build a house, all you need to do is have a mental picture of the type of house you want to build, the number of rooms, bath room, kitchen, location of the house, type of floor, tiles, marbles, roof, ceiling, windows, doors, every detail information about the house. And by impressing the thought of this house upon formless substance, will be created with the definiteness of the picture you have, the fixity of your purpose, the steadiness of your faith and the depth of your gratitude that you already have the house.
In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; otherwise he cannot be in harmony with the Formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.
Man may come into full harmony with the Formless Substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon them. Gratitude unifies the mind of man with the intelligence of Substance (God), so that man's thoughts are received by the Formless. Man can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting himself with the Formless Intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.
Man must form a clear and definite mental image of the things he wishes to have, to do, or to become; and he must hold this mental image in his thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the Supreme that all his desires are granted to him. The man who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his Vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the reality is being given to him. Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwavering faith and devout gratitude. This is the process by which the impression is given to the Formless, and the creative forces set in motion.
