Experiments with the parasites found on plants indicate that even the lowest order of life is enabled to take advantage of natural laws. This experiment was made by Jacques Loch, a member of the Rockefeller institute.
He found that, in order to obtain the material, potted rose bushes was bought in a room and placed in front of a closed window. If the plants were allowed to dry out, the aphids ( a kind of parasites), previously wingless, changed to winged insects. After the metamorphosis, the animals left the plants, flew to the window and then did creep upward on the glass.
It is evident that these tiny insects found that the plants on which they had been thriving were dead, and they could, therefore, secure nothing more to eat and drink from this source. The only method by which they could save themselves from starvation was to grow temporary wings and fly, which they did.
Experiments such as this indicate that the tiniest living thing takes advantage of the universe in an emergency. The law of the universe is simple. You can get it if you really want it. There are thousands of way to what you desire if you truly desire. This is the law under which we live. This law operates under our advantage; that all conditions and experience that come to us are for our benefits; that we gain strength in proportion to the efforts expended, and that our happiness is best attained through a conscious cooperation with nature and its laws.
These laws under which we live are designed solely for our advantage. These laws are immutable and we can not escape from their operation. All the great forces act in silence but it is in our power to place ourselves in harmony with them and thus express a life of complete peace and happiness.
Difficulties, disharmonies indicate that either we are refusing to give out what we do not need now anymore or refusing to accept what we require. Growth is attained by the exchange of old for the new. We can not attain what we need if we cling to what we have. All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefits. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come to us until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials for further growth.
That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. We gain permanent strength exactly to the extent of the efforts required to overcome difficulties. The requirements of growth demand that we exert the greatest degree of attraction for what is perfectly in accord with us. Our highest happiness will be best attained through our understanding of, the conscious cooperation with natural laws.
