Walter Russell

Walter RussellWalter Russell (1871–1963) Genius is Inherent in Everyone! He was an American polymath or "Renaissance Man," known for his achievements in painting, sculpture, architecture, and for his unified theory in physics and cosmogony.

After leaving school at the age of 9, in order to earn money, he very successfully explored music, literature, architecture, painting, sculpture, natural sciences, new ways towards a healthy economy, philosophy and mysticism as well as figure skating, horse breeding and dressage.

Together with Lao, his second wife and intellectual companion, he founded a private university for distance learning, the University of Science and Philosophy, in Swannanoa, Virginia. It still exists today and their Home Study Course in Cosmic Consciousness has helped many people to unfold their consciousness.

If You Want to Do Anything, Start Doing It

Mentors - Walter Russell

"If you desire to do it, write that desire on upon your heart and take it to sleep with you."

I have always adopted the slogan; "if you want to do anything, start doing it." Start at once doing the thing you wish to do with full awareness and full comprehension that there is nothing that can stop you from doing it. If you desire to do it, write that desire upon your heart and take it to sleep with you. If the answer is given you in the morning that says go ahead and do it; that means the power of God is there. With that full knowledge I would start doing it and I knew before I started that I would succeed.


What is Reality?

Mentors - Walter Russell

"Is that product of mine the reality, or is it the thought which caused the product the reality? We all look in the direction of our product, thinking mistakenly that the thing which we have created is the real thing."

   I say that the real substance of any product whatsoever is not in the product at all, but is only in the thought behind the product. The thought itself is never created; it is but given symbolic form. The thought belongs to the thinker and to other thinkers who are capable of interpreting the symbolic form in which he expresses his thought. Thought and inspiration have no dimension whatsoever; they belong to the unseen and unseeable world. Those things you and I produce –things which can be seen, felt, sold and bartered –have no meaning whatsoever except the meaning that people can give them by the ability of the original creative thinker to transfer his thoughts to other people, and by their ability to reflect the light of another thinker upon their own consciousness.
