    from which to work

    Spirit is substance which forms itself according to your demands, and must have a pattern from which to work. A pan of dough is as willing to be formed into bread as biscuit. It makes as little difference to Spirit what we demand.

    -- Frances Larimer Warner, Our Invisible Supply; Part One, 1907

    what does "from which to work" mean?
    from the above, a pan of dough can be formed into both bread and biscuit, right?
    the last sence, does it mean for the spirit, there is a little difference of what we want, right?

    thank you.
