MKE 2018, Week 22 – What would it mean?

11. Let us see how the action of the subconscious mind over the body differs. You receive a wound; thousands of cells being the work of healing at once; in a few days or a few weeks the work is complete. You may even break a bone. No surgeon on earth can weld the parts together (I am not referring to the insertion of rods or other devices to strengthen or replace bones). He may set the bone for you, and the subjective mind will immediately begin the process of welding the parts together, and in a short time the bone is as solid as it ever was. You may swallow poison; the subjective mind will immediately discover the danger and make violent efforts to eliminate it. You may become infected with a dangerous germ; the subjective will at once commence to build a wall around the infected area and destroy the infection by absorbing it in the white blood corpuscles which it supplies for the purpose.
12. These processes of the subconscious mind usually proceed without our personal knowledge or direction, and so long as we do not interfere the result is perfect, but, as these millions of repair cells are all intelligent and respond to our thought, they are often paralyzed and rendered impotent by our thoughts of fear, doubt, and anxiety. They are like an army of workmen, ready to start an important piece of work, but every time they get started on the undertaking a strike is called, or plans changed, until they finally get discouraged and give up.

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

Considering the virtually unlimited ability of the subconscious to maintain the functions of the body, what do You think it would mean if we managed to stop interfering with this inherent intelligence we all possess?

Lets say we could release all ‘negative’ emotions, those being all that doesn’t serve our continuous survival. Do You think we could prolong life and health? Maybe even indefinitely?

Mind blowing thoughts and perspectives, right?

What would it take for us to be able to let go of all fear, doubt and anxiety?
Is it even possible?
Can these emotions be completely eliminated by entertaining thoughts of love, hope and faith?

And, maybe more important, is there even an answer to these questions?

Or may it be that we, merely by applying faith and consciously nurture the emotions of love, hope, joy, serenity, gratitude, inspiration, awe, pride, amusement, and interest, can simply raise our level of happiness to a point where the present moment is so stunning, valuable and enticing that nothing else really matters any more?
Could that be the ‘secret’ of bliss?

What do You think?

MKE 2018, Week 21 – Stay with the work

We know that the universe is governed by law; that for every effect there must be a cause, and that the same cause, under the same conditions, will invariably produce the same effect.
Consequently, if prayer has ever been answered, it will always be answered, if the proper conditions are complied with. This must necessarily be true; otherwise, the universe would be
a chaos instead of a cosmos. The answer to prayer is therefore subject to law, and this law is definite, exact and scientific, just as are the laws governing gravitation and electricity. An
understanding of this law takes the foundation of Christianity out of the realm of superstition and credulity and places it upon the firm rock of scientific understanding.
18. An illustration of how these mind forces operate is suggested by the method in which all our habits are formed. We do a thing, then do it again, and again, and again, until it becomes easy and perhaps almost automatic; and the same rule applies in breaking any and all bad habits; we stop doing a thing, and then avoid it again, and again until we are entirely free from it; and if we do fail now and then, we should by no means lose hope, for the law is absolute and invincible and gives us credit for every effort and every success, even though our efforts and successes are perhaps intermittent.

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

We know by now that using the three step process of idealization, visualization and manifestation works in line with the laws of the universe and here Haanel explains how and why this process only gets easier over time.
Its apparent to everyone following this path for some length of time, that the manifestation of the idealized and visualized event is happening faster and with less effort the longer we’ve stayed on the path.
This is explained by the elimination of bad habits, indulging in daydreaming or other non productive thoughts, and the development of good habits, keeping our ideal at the forefront of our minds.

In my own experience, what I idealized and visualized 4-5 years ago was manifested last year, my dreams from last year are coming to fruition at this point in time and I expect that the ideals I hold in my mind today to manifest even faster!

MKE 2018, Week 20 – Guard Your Thoughts

27. Thought is creative vibration and the quality of the conditions created will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess. We must “be” before we can “do” and we can “do” only to the extent to which we “are,” and so what we do will necessarily coincide with what we “are” and what we are depends upon what we”think.”
28. Every time you think you start a train of causation which will create a condition in strict accordance with the quality of the thought which originated it.
Thought which is in harmony with the Universal Mind will result in corresponding conditions. Thought which is destructive or discordant will produce corresponding results. You may use thought constructively or destructively, but the immutable law will not allow you to plant a thought of one kind and reap the fruit of another. You are free to use this marvelous creative power as you will, but you must take the consequences.
Charles Haanel, ‘The Master Key System’, Part XX

By now we thoroughly understand the importance of guarding our mind and our thoughts.
The thoughts we think, make us become who we are and do the things someone like that does. So, once more, we need to go back to observing our thoughts, and use our conscious mind (the watchman at the gate) to entertain only thoughts that mold us into the person who naturally does what needs to be done for us to get what we want in the end.

Back to the boxes again, right?

Or, in other words:

Thoughts charged by emotion form beliefs that fuel actions/behaviors leading to results/consequences!

MKE 2018, Week 19 – Ending Duality?

4. All things are finally resolvable into the same element and as they are thus translatable, one into the other, they must ever be in relation and may never be in opposition to one another.
5. In the physical
world there are innumerable contrasts, and these may for convenience sake, be designated by distinctive names. There are sizes, colors, shades or ends to all things. There is a North Pole, and a South Pole, an inside and an outside, a seen and an unseen, but these expressions merely serve to place extremes in contrast.
6. They are names given to two different parts of one quantity. The two extremes are relative; they are not separate
entities, but are two parts or aspects of the whole.
7. In the mental
world we find the same law; we speak of knowledge and ignorance, but ignorance is but a lack of knowledge and is therefore found to be simply a word to express the absence of knowledge; it has no principle in itself.
8. In the Moral
World we again find the same law; we speak of good and evil, but Good is a reality, something tangible, while Evil is found to be simply a negative condition, the absence of Good. Evil is sometimes thought to be a very real condition, but it has no principle, no vitality, no life; we know this because it can always be destroyed by Good; just as Truth destroys Error and light destroys darkness, so Evil vanishes when Good appears; there is therefore but one principle in the Moral World.
9. We find exactly the same law obtaining in the Spiritual world; we speak of Mind and Matter as two separate entities, but clearer insight makes it evident that there is but one operative principle and that is Mind.

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

Through the millennia we humans have had a tendency to view every part of our world as incompatible contrasts, somehow functioning together in a strange kind of balance.
Haanel here offers a view of one extreme being nothing but the absence of the other and that every area of the natural world is ruled by a single principle.

What do You think about this view of the world?

Is it comforting? Or confusing?

Have You taken it into the SIT with You?

MKE 2018, Week 18.2 – Guest Blogger Debi Lee

Please welcome Debi back for another guest post!

Master Key Experience – Week 17hj

Well, what a surprise to find that instead of Week 18, this is Week 17hj!   Awesome plan to go back and review.  I have read Master Key weeks 9, 10, and 1 so far this week, and loved it.  It truly does mean more now.  I can see myself, at the end of this, re-reading everything on a consistent basis and learning more and more.

Things are going well, I’ve released 9 pounds of holiday weight, and the new fence is almost finished.  I am now coaching 18 people on their own healthy weight loss journeys.  That is a joy, and getting great reports every day.

My next “service” is to get onto paper a proper weekly routine – what will I concentrate most on, on each day of the week?  My prior pattern lacked enough structure since I am my own boss, but now I am so looking forward to continuing to build that framework around which my business will grow exponentially.

Reading the obituaries this week is sort of addicting — Well, just one more….I’m wondering if our next assignment will be to write our own obituary?  Not a bad plan.

Much love for all of you!  We are very blessed to be here, in 2019, working on the Master Key Experience.  May you find the Master Key to your true Destiny!

MKE 2018, Week 18 – Interest & Attention

28. The Universal Mind is static Mind or Substance in equilibrium. It is differentiated into form by our power to think. Thought is the dynamic phase of mind.
29. Power depends upon
consciousness of power; unless we use it, we shall lose it, and unless we are conscious of it, we cannot use it.
30. The use of this power depends upon attention; the degree of attention determines our capacity for the acquirement of knowledge which is another name for power.
31. Attention has been held to be the distinguishing mark of genius. The cultivation of attention depends upon practice.
32. The incentive of attention is interest; the greater the interest, the greater the attention; the greater the attention, the greater the interest, action and reaction; begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest; this interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so on. This practice will enable you to cultivate the power of attention.

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

So, once we’re conscious of the power of thoughts, we’re also able to make use of it. And making use of it is the only way of keeping it. Again, we’re back to applied faith – unless we prove our faith in this power by actually put it to use in our lives, it becomes useless to us and we thereby rob the world of our gifts by neglect.

Attention drives this power and goes hand in hand with interest, too many of us tend to engage in activities we do not have a genuine burn for and that take our attentions away from what we’re actually here to do.
How important is it then not to educe our deepest interest, put our attention on it, and get the power of ‘the dynamic phase of mind’ working for us?

What do You think? Do You keep Your attention and interest supporting each other? Where could You still make improvement?

MKE 2018, Week 17 – Quality of Thought

22. If you concentrate on some matter of importance, the intuitive power will be set in operation, and help will come in the nature of information which will lead to success.
23. Intuition arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory. Intuition often solves problems that are beyond the grasp of the reasoning power. Intuition often comes with a suddenness that is startling; it reveals the truth for which we are searching, so directly that it seems to come from a higher power. Intuition can be cultivated and developed; in order to do this it must be recognized and appreciated; if the intuitive visitor is given a royal welcome when he comes, he will come again; the more cordial the welcome the more frequent his visits will become, but if he is ignored or neglected he will make his visits few and far apart.
24. Intuition usually comes in the Silence; great minds seek solitude frequently; it is here that all the larger problems of life are worked out. For this reason every businessman who can afford it has a private office, where he will not be disturbed; if you cannot afford a private office you can at least find somewhere, where you can be alone a few minutes each day, to train the thought along lines which will enable you to develop that invincible power which is necessary to achieve.

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

In Part XVII Haanel talks about the importance of spending time with ourselves in silence and actively listening to that voice inside for that connection to deepen and make it possible to tap into the unlimited resource that s our intuition.

How many times haven’t we all ignored that little guiding voice until it stopped nudging us, all because we were so eager to follow our logical conclusion in a matter, instead of listening to intuitive wisdom.
I, on my part, had that down so well that reconnecting with my inner voice took a lot of effort and repetition, and caused quite a lot of frustration along the way.

Just imagine that I was meditating very regularly in my late teens and then lost the habit for reasons I don’t even recall today.
It’s hard not to imagine what life would have looked like today if the habit had been kept up…
Anyway, the important this is to schedule the time with ourselves and do it on a daily basis to get into the habit of listening to that inner voice. And over time it grows stronger and stronger until we can even pick it up effortlessly, sometimes almost accidentally, in our everyday lives!

MKE 2018, Week 16 – Quality of Thought

25. Our ability to differentiate it into form is our ability to manifest good or evil.
26. Good and evil therefore are not entities, they are simply words which we use to indicate the result of our actions, and these actions are in turn predetermined by the character of our thought.
27. If our thought is constructive and harmonious we manifest good; if it is destructive and discordant we manifest evil.
28. If you desire to visualize a different environment, the process is simply to hold the ideal in mind, until your vision has been made real; give no thought to persons, places or things; these have no place in the absolute; the environment you desire will contain everything necessary; the right persons, and the right things will come at the right time and in the right place.
29. It is sometimes not plain how character, ability, attainment, achievement, environment and destiny can be controlled through the power of visualization, but this is an exact scientific fact.

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

In Part XVI Haanel writes about how the quality of our thoughts is what affects the outcome and how we, once again, must maintain eternally vigilant to ensure the manifestation of that what we want. And only that what we want.

Even if it cannot always be explained exactly how this works, we must keep our ideal in mind until it becomes a reality. Even facing apparent evidence to the opposite, or maybe especially then, as the applied faith that is shown by our determination in itself proves the seriousness of our desire.

I know how I sometimes have doubted things to work out the way I want them to and how hard it can sometimes be to stay focused on the intended outcome instead of defaulting to creating methods. And I’m sure this has happened to You as well.
