MKE 2019, Week 8

Let me illustrate. Thought results in action, if your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result will be good; if your thought is destructive or inharmonious, the result will be evil.
There is therefore but one law, one principle, on cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or noncompliance with this law.
The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and in harmony.
Here we have two grand men, each intent upon achieving the same ideal, but one makes use of constructive thought and is therefore in harmony with Natural Law, the other makes use of destructive thought and therefore brings upon himself discord of every kind and character.
It is evident therefore that 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.

Charles Haanel, ‘The Master Key System’, Part VIII

Negative thinking is when you are dwelling on failure, disappointment, or trouble; any thought of criticism, or jealousy, or spite or condemnation of others or yourself, or any thought of sickness or accident. In short, any kind of limitation or pessimistic thinking. Any thought that concerns you are anyone else that is not positive or constructive.
This diet is about not dwelling on negative thoughts, in fact not even entertaining them. Once again we know you cannot control the first thought that comes in your brain, yet you can control every thought after that. Disregard them and replace them with a positive thought. Some negative thoughts or comments will come from other people, a newspaper, television, email, or telephone. These do not matter; just disregard them and do not dwell on them.

Emmet Fox, ‘The Mental Diet’

Comparing and combining the words of these two authors makes it very obvious how important our choice of thoughts and our inner dialogue is for our experience in the world without.

Even after working with this material for several years, I still observe how these connections sometimes play out in a not so desirable way in my own life.
Always as a result of me trying to make a short cut, make a compromise or in other ways moving away from the true path of my heart to make short term gains.

    I have really enjoyed the exercise of the 7 Day Mental Diet. Challenging at times, certainly. But I know the reward is worth every effort I put into this, and I will succeed! Catching myself before 7 seconds is turning into a habit, a good habit for the rest of my life. To err is human and I guess I will fail now and then, but my overall attitude is what counts in the long run. We can all do this! ♥
