Week 22 A Control Our Thoughts

 

2015-03-12_1745HARMONY IN THE WORLD WITHIN MEANS THE ABILITY TO CONTROL OUR THOUGHTS, AND TO DETERMINE FOR OURSELVES HOW ANY EXPERIENCE IS TO AFFECT US. (HAANEL)

It seems as though each day in my life there is a reason to control my thoughts.  For me this can be a struggle especially when I see injustices happening to children in our family.  So each day I use the seven laws of the mind to control and redirect my thoughts.  I will share these laws with you, knowing how much they have helped me keep my balance and remain in peace.

LAW OF SUBSTITUTION

We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind – try to think about higher power or God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  The Master Teacher said, “resist not evil” meaning don’t resist it but instead turn from it and think about something else instead.

LAW OF RELAXATION

Mental effort defeats itself-It’s the exact opposite of physical effort. A relaxed calm state of mind is the only doorway to mental progress.  Relaxation of thought is the only access to infinite intelligence.

LAW OF PRACTICE

Practice makes perfect.  The 5 Ps- Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance.  Our bewilderment of Magnificence in others, upon further inspection we find is really just practice.  With practice of the correct things, we improve on the other 6 laws of the mind.

LAW OF FORGIVENESS

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel.  There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister justified or not, exists.

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

LAW OF SUBCONSCIOUS

As soon as the subconscious accepts an idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7 to manifest that demand-accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

THE LAW OF GROWTH

Whatever we think about grows.  What we forget atrophies.

As I have leveraged  these Seven Laws of the Mind, I have found a renewed purpose in life, and a profound peace.

May these laws assist you in finding your peace.

 

Week 16 What Is The Great Business Of Life?

 

20141214_114645THINKING….Because thought is spiritual and therefore creative.  To consciously control thought is therefore to control circumstances, conditions, environment and destiny. 

This week in the Master Key we are logging KINDNESSES in our Master Mind Group. Kindnesses others do for me and kindnesses I do for others, seen or unseen.

The “aah ha” moment was when I realized I needed to be kind to myself. Until today (we started Monday)  I had not looked at the kindnesses I have been doing for myself.  How I treat myself.  Here is where my thoughts control so much more than I could ever have come to understand in the past.   Those words that we speak to ourselves. The good ones and the not so good ones.  Yes, that annoying self talk.

One of the seven laws of the mind is the law of substitution.  As I substitute negative thought for a fond memory or another pleasant thought, the negative is blotted out.  It takes hard work to get that self talk into submission, but I am making improvements each day.

I have created a stack of index cards that remind me of all the good things I have accomplished in my life. (one good thing for each card) Each day I add 3 new grateful statements to that stack of cards.  I want to be kind to myself and to others each day.  As Haanel, tells us “as we control our thoughts we can control our circumstances and conditions”.  I use my cards as “flash cards” each day to plant positive thoughts.

In the news the whole month of  January is  getting back in shape by losing weight…new resolution for the new year.  I don’t know about you but I really do not like to lose anything, my keys, my car in the huge parking lot or my belongings.  So why would I want to lose weight? Good question.  Perhaps the words need to be different to cause the real effect I expect to achieve.  Maybe think this over a little bit before I launch the objective.  What is the source of all evil?  Destructive thinking.

The business of life is to control thought and that brings about good circumstances and conditions.

I can be what I will to be
