Continuing with Haanel writings: The real secret of power is consciousness of power. To become conscious of this power is to become a “live wire“; it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged. The Universal is the live wire. It carries power sufficient to meet every situation which may arise in the life of every individual. When the individual mind touches the Universal Mind it receives all the power it requires.
The next question that would come to mind would be, where do I find the Universal Mind to tap into that power? The answer is in the silence. It is all about silencing our mind, cleared of thought that is constantly running around in our heads. Re-training the mind to get quiet so the Universal mind can release the power.
How do I silence the hurt feelings, unworthiness, anger, guilt and fear?
Be an observer and I…..
Use one of the 7 Laws of the Mind, relaxation.
Let’s think about anger for a minute. Observe yourself, as I have; what do I look like? I admit, I get red in the face, start to shake all over, my stomach gets upset and all I can think of is to strike back. My mind locks up on my point of view. My whole body gets into this angry frenzy. I have given up my power to anger. Not a good thing.
Now by observation, before all these symptoms arrive, I exercise control over the run-away feeling of anger. It’s all about silencing my mind to tap into the power. That already feels better to me. Let’s take a deep breath together. Much better now.
