noun: a complex mental state involving beliefs and feelings and values and dispositions to act in certain ways
"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." [Thomas Jefferson]
"When you have a good, clear understanding of what attitude is and how attitudes are formed, it will become very apparent that only a small percentage of the population are in control of their attitude.
In truth, most people’s attitude is being controlled by the media, other people, and the conditions and circumstances in their life. And that’s not good when attitude has such a big effect on the quality of our lives.
When your attitude shifts, everything in your world shifts. Your environment, the world in which you live and work, is a mirror of your attitudes and expectations. Keep your positive mental attitude high!" [Bob Proctor]
The possibility for uninterrupted further work is now the only prerequisite for finally solving the core-problem - food shortages. The achievement of this is the task of those who, after Germany's lost war, are now responsible for the further fate of the German people. It is likewise necessary to refine the current attitude of those, who as nature-alienated politicians, are to blame for the [The Energy Evolution - Harnessing Free Energy from Nature, The Ennoblement of Water]
Because of this curious attitude, conventional science has made a serious mistake, which we have to thank for the general economic decline, the world-wide unease and unrest, and not least, the constant wars. As long as this mistake remains uncorrected, any lasting peace is unthinkable, for owing to the serious disruption of natural development, the quality of the soil is declining, the shortage in raw materials is increasing and the various sources of food and fodder are dwindling in the same ratio that the population is increasing. It is therefore obvious that under such circumstances no lasting peace can come about. [The Energy Evolution - Harnessing Free Energy from Nature, The Liquefaction of Coal by Means of Cold Flows]
The Octave being divided into 53 commas, the intervals are measured, as usual, by these, the large second having 9-commas, the medium second having 8, and the small second 5. These measures are then made each the radius by which to draw hemispheres showing the various and comparative areas of the seconds. The comparative areas of the thirds are shown by the hemispheres of the seconds which compose them facing each other in pairs. The comma-measures of the various thirds thus determined are then made the radii by which to draw the two hemispheres of the fifths. The areas of the three fifths are identical, as also the attitudes of their unequal hemispheres. The attitude of the six thirds, on the other hand, in their two kinds, being reversed in the upper and under halves of the scale, their attitude gives them the appearance of being attracted towards the center of the tonic; while the attitude of the three fifths is all upward in the major, and all downward in the minor; their attraction being towards the common center of the twelve scales which Nature has placed between the second of the major and the fourth of the minor, as seen in the two D's of the dual genetic scale, - the two modes being thus seen, as it were, revolving [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 113]
round a common center which is lying between them, as the double stars do in the astral heavens. When this plate is reversed we have before us exactly the minor scale, and all the parts and attitudes related in exactly the inverse way, each to each, so perfect is the duality in unity of the two modes.

"There should be ever CONSTRUCTIVE thought. There should be little of fear, for as the body expresses itself at times in its relationships to others, KEEP that attitude. Be more tolerant, be more patient, be more humble." [Cayce 257-168]
"Keep your mental attitude constructive, one that will look more and more for the bright or constructive forces in your life. This is a helpful influence, and the source of real help comes from within." [Cayce (816-1)]
"... if the entity allows [the relationships with individuals] to produce a hardening of the heart, or of a determination to get even, or of those conditions that hold for discontent, malice, or otherwise, these must surely bring the destructive forces that build that which the entity must meet; for, in truth, that builded in the mental forces of a body is as ACTIVE in the experiences as must come to the entity as were done in the very material act; for, as was given, "It hath been said, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; yet I say unto thee, he that hateth his brother is worse than he that DESTROYETH a body." Cayce (1234-1)
"The attitudes have much to do with the general physical conditions. Let the attitudes be more of a constructive nature; more of patience, more of brotherly love, more of "give and take. Do not hold resentment. Do not get so mad at times when things are a little wrong." Cayce (1819-1)
"Keep your body as physically fit as possible. Keep happy. Keep glad. This makes for better conditions for yourself and for anybody who depends on you." [Cayce (301-8)]
". . . justifying of self is blaming someone else." Cayce (2803-2)
"If the problems of the experience today, now, are taken as an expectancy for the unusual and that which is to be creative and hopeful and helpful, life becomes rather the creative song of the joyous worker. If the same problems become humdrum, something to be fought through, something to be questioned as to their purpose, their activity, their usefulness in the experience, then the life becomes rather as a drone, as of one drudging, coming through toil, and with only turmoil and a vision unclaimed, unactive in its associations with the general conditions of the day." Cayce (1968-5)
"For, those things that are as hindrances or troubles MUST be turned into stepping-stones, and not stumbling-stones; else a soul falls backward rather than progresses." Cayce (2331-1)
"Know that your mental attitude is the builder; whether it is physical, mental or spiritual. You KNOW what to do. Then just do it!" [Cayce (303-39)]
"DO stay sweet. Keep that attitude of expectation. Do keep an attitude of hope. And KNOW that there is healing in the power and might of the love of the Divine." [Cayce (2948-1)]
Attitude is a process of thought and therefore obeys the laws of Thought, thinking and mind consciousness. As every force has three attributes attitudes are mainly three in number.
|Separation||judging, condemning, false witness, hate|| |
|Integration||accepting, nurturing, loving, serving|| |
|Neutral||passive, observing, knowing, wondering|| |
There are those who willfully lump individuals under labels then condemn the label fostering separation. There are those who disapprove of another's thought, ideas and actions.
There are those who accept love and nurture others such as siblings, family and neighbors.
There are those who simply observe and are neither loving or condemning in their thoughts and actions. There are those who seek solitude for a number of reasons.
To determine which attribute of attitude you or someone else manifests simply passively observe their thoughts, words and actions. If any of these lead to Separation, Integration or Passivity you will know. Their actions and results of those actions always speak louder than their words. "Ye shall know them by their fruits." [Matthew 7:20] So when observing someone or any organization, their words and actions ask yourself are they promoting Separation, Integration or are simply being Neutral. Which attribute will manifest from their spoken words or actions?
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Those who deny this Truth will be denied access to the Celestial Kingdoms until they have increased their spiritual perception, and prayerfully changed their attitudes. Only when their vision is lifted above the earthly human perception of 'male and female' - and beyond their earthly desires and ego drive - to the Reality out of which they have drawn their 'being', will they escape the wheel of re-incarnation and find entrance to the ultimate Joy and Glory." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 17]
