Your point is also supported by the original source of my ideas about
"Structure is an organizational factor in the universe, although a
secondary and derivative one. It is love which first brings order out
of chaos, but structure implements the durable patterns of orderly
arrangement. Love built your home; structure holds the walls in
place. Love built your nation, structure administers it. Love
determines the parameters of right conduct, structure formulates the
laws which enforce it. Like the mind, structure is good if it serves,
and tyrannical if it dominates inflexibly, never submitting to the
revisions of love.
"Structure represents the predictable, agreed upon patterns of
existence which start with simple forms and build to complex ones. It
is the patterning which causes the differences of potential, and
holds organizational formulas in place. For example, structure is
what makes the difference between steam, water, and ice even though
the ingredients are the same. But structure is not the 'will' which
determines whether H20 will become steam or ice. That is determined
by harmonic adaptations to the environment (love).
"All structure is derivative summarization, and is subject to
revision, suspension, or development. You might say that structure is
the conservational imprint which allows desirable creations to be
stabilized, retained, and combined into larger aggregates of form and
matter. Structure is what holds things in place.
"Laid upon this gridwork are many mind-generated patterns and
structural models used by man for control. There are no 'sacred
designs' which preceded reality. This idea has been invented to make
you afraid to revise or to dispense with unworkable structures, and
to give structures dominance over you."
This definitely comes from a "new age" source: "Love Without End -
Jesus Speaks" by Glenda Green.

"What you think upon grows. Whatever you allow to occupy your mind
you magnify in your life. Whether the subject of your thought be good
or bad, the law works and the condition grows. Any subject that you
keep out of your mind tends to diminish in your life, because what
you do not use atrophies. The more you think of grievances, the more
such trials you will continue to receive; the more you think of the
good fortune you have had, the more good fortune will come to you."
--Emmet Fox from Make Your Life Worthwhile, 1942
