Secrets to the Law of Attraction – Ecourse Workbook from "Thought Vibration" - William Walker Atkinson - 1906 Lesson 1"The Universe is governed by Law - one great law. Its manifestations aremultiform, but viewed from the Ultimate there is but one Law. We are familiarwith some of its manifestations, but are almost totally ignorant of certainothers. Still we are learning a little more every day - the veil is being graduallylifted."
From “Thought Vibration” by W. W. Atkinson weighing a hundred pounds, but we can neither see, taste, smell, hear nor feel the mighty force. These thought vibrations, likewise, cannot be seen, tasted, smelled, heard nor felt in the ordinary way; Lesson 1 - Law of although it is true there are on record cases of persons peculiarly sensitive to psychic impressions Attraction in the Thought who have perceived powerful thought-waves, and very many of us can testify that we have distinctly World felt the thought vibrations of others, both whilst in the presence of the sender and at a distance.

Still we vibrations of a far lower intensity than those ofare learning a little more every day - the veil is Thought, but the difference is solely in the rate ofbeing gradually lifted. vibration. The annals of science throw an interesting light upon this question. Prof. Elisha Gray, an eminent scientist, says in his little book, We speak learnedly of the Law of "The Miracles of Nature":Gravitation, but ignore that equally wonderfulmanifestation, THE LAW OF ATTRACTION INTHE THOUGHT WORLD. We are familiar with "There is much food for speculation in thethat wonderful manifestation of Law which draws thought that there exist sound-waves that no humanand holds together the atoms of which matter is ear can hear, and color-waves of light that no eyecomposed - we recognize the power of the law that can see. The long, dark, soundless space betweenattracts bodies to the earth, that holds the circling 40,000 and 400,000,000,000,000 vibrations perworlds in their places, but we close our eyes to the second, and the infinity of range beyondmighty law that draws to us the things we desire or 700,000,000,000,000 vibrations per second, wherefear, that makes or mars our lives. light ceases, in the universe of motion, makes it possible to indulge in speculation." When we come to see that Thought is aforce - a manifestation of energy - having a M. M. Williams, in his work entitledmagnet-like power of attraction, we will begin to "Short Lessons in Science," says:understand the why and wherefore of many thingsthat have heretofore seemed dark to us.
