Haanel so nicely puts things into perspective with his writings. “Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form. It is evident that if we wish desirable conditions, we can entertain only desirable thoughts.”
Words are thoughts and are an invisible and invincible power which will objectify in the form they are given. The beauty of the word consists in the beauty of the thought: the power of the word consists in the power of the thought, and the power of the thought consists in its vitality. He who recognizes and understands the creative power of thought becomes a master of his destiny.
How to develop this power of thought? Develop insight of the world within in the “silence“, by concentration. Insight enables us to plan to advantage and turn our thought and attention in the right direction.
I have found that as I practice the Silence (the disapline of setting time aside each day) and earnestly seek, I have a new peace, a greater understanding of thoughts that are desirable.
My life is a positive influence for good.
Love Peace and Harmony,
My thoughts for week eight.
I see some good changes…the “Do it now” keeps me on task.
The one thing that jumped out at me this week has been the reading in Haanel. We are working on the Mental Diet and I had been hating the “bad”. You know the TV shows about murder etc, etc. When this came to my attention the TV went into silent mode. Turning off the TV has been my best gift to myself.
Back to Haanel…”We are to hate NOTHING, not even the “bad” because hatred is destructive and we shall soon find that by entertaining destructive thought we are sowing the “wind” and in turn shall reap the “whirlwind”.
Og says the same thing (I did not see it until week 8) “I never allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Henceforth I love all mankind. From this moment all hate is let from my veins for I have not time to hate, only time to love.
And one more time in our BPB writing…”I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.
My Mental Diet has taken a turn for the better this week. I greet this day with love in my heart and I succeed.
Peace Love and Harmony
Today I received this short article regarding vows. Written by MADISYN TAYLOR, one would think she had been following me around the house taking notes on my DMP, OG, Haanel and blueprint builder readings.
“A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore.
Speech is a vehicle for vows, but the sacred vows we speak are more than just words. When we make a promise, a subtle yet powerful shift takes place in our souls where intentions are housed. A vow is both a tool we employ in order to facilitate transformation within ourselves and an expression of will. Thus, to make an oath is to communicate to the universe and our deeper selves our commitment to the principles most important to us. Fulfilling a sacred vow–whether it is as complex as “’till death do us part” or as simple as “I promise”–challenges us, exercising our willpower and aiding personal growth.
When we speak a sacred vow out loud rather than reciting it in our minds or recording it on paper, our voices project our promises into the deepest reaches of the universe. It is important that we remember that a vow made with the sincerest of intentions has the power to carry on past our earthly lifetimes. A well-chosen vow encourages commitment and dedication. The presence or approval of a spiritual teacher is not necessary to success, as true oaths are a product of the heart.
A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore. Your view of the world around you may change, and your predominant thoughts and feelings will no doubt evolve with time, but the spirit in which your oaths were spoken will remain unaffected. It is up to you to determine how you will stay true to your vows while your inner- and outer-world existence is transformed. Your strength and character will inevitably be tested as circumstances make keeping promises increasingly challenging, but after you have shown yourself steadfast many times, your appreciation of the sanctity of vows will be cemented in your mind and soul.”
Our MKMMA goes far beyond our lifetimes, our children and grandchildren are watching us and they see the changes taking place. “I promise”, carries us into a better future for our families. As I make my daily promises, I effect those close to me. I plan to do my best.
Love Peace & Harmony
“Harmony in the world within means the ability to control our thoughts, and to determine for ourselves how any experience is to affect us.” A quote from the Master Keys class that I am now taking.
As we continue with our studies, I am keenly aware of the need to control my thoughts. When I am in an emotional state, upset because life has been unkind or unfair, I find it difficult to turn off the thoughts that consume me. I find those thoughts that keep me agitated not only effect me emotionally but physically too.
A couple of years ago right at Christmas time I experienced chest pains. We all know that is not a good thing. For me it was an early warning to get myself pulled back together and pay attention to what my body needs for better health. I was offered a class from the Hospital to better care for myself, and there it was….Meditation and exercise. Meditation, or controlling our thoughts was a large part of the Hospital class.
In the Master Key class we are learning skills to help us understand the importance of needing control to gain harmony of the world within. I plan to pay close attention in class and make the changes that will bring me into a peaceful place. To put into practice the exercises I am learning.
I highly recommend a book that I have read “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself” by Michael A Singer. In his book Michael takes you on a journey through the chapters, to show you there will be no more confusion, no more lack of empowerment and no more blaming others. You have the ability to find yourself and you have the ability to free yourself. You will know exactly what must be done, if you so choose.
Peace, Love, Harmony,
Promise, a pledge to do, bring about or provide. A promise, a declaration that one will do or refrain from doing something specified. In starting our class at MKMMA, we promise to do the assignments, to work on being self motivated and self directed.
The promise I have made here is to form new healthy habits of thought and life. To work diligently to train the subconscious mind. The mind is the master weaver, both of the interior garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance. The conscious mind becomes the responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is this training which can completely reverse conditions in my life.
I am excited to begin the process of change and embrace the power that will be released. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power. I promise to render such action, to be persistent and to achieve my purpose. I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become.
As I commit myself to eliminate hatred, envy, jealously, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all humanity, I know that the negative attitude toward others will be replaced by love.
I always keep my promises.
