We are born with an inherent wholeness.
We learn of the creative power of thought. We are intrigued by the wonder of it. We can become fascinated with the fact that thought is creative, that what we think takes form in our experience to some degree. We begin to use this law for every possible purpose for the benefit of ourselves and for others.
We often go through a phase of treating to control people and things. Most of us pass through this phase. We then move on to treat to control our own mind and our own consciousness. Of this, Emerson said, "We must stay at home with the Cause."
Wholeness is the experience of staying at home with the Cause.
