Week 9 – The Law of Growth

Well here I am through 9 weeks of this incredible experience of mental rebirth and I am more excited and blown away than ever! As noted before in earlier blog posts “We become what we think about” but often the question is how? and Why? Primarily it is because of the law of growth.

Focus grows

What ever we feed our attention to will become magnified in our mind. Have you ever seen a mob form and become uncontrollable? It begins with a thought or grievance that is repeated over and over with more and more feeling until it spills over into action (usually bad and unthinking because it has become completely emotional at that point). Like a sore on the arm where the scab is picked at continuously until it bleeds again or becomes infected. What ever we think about we add fuel to, we build up in our minds.

This ‘Law of Growth’ works for either good or ill. Hold in your mind the condition wished for and repeat it over and over by affirmation and it grows until you MUST have it. All action is the result or blossom of thought and conditions are the result of action, thus cause is Think -> Act -> have the resulting Condition.

I love this line: “Nature provides not only enough but abundantly, wastefully, lavishly, we realize that any lack or limitation is only the limitation which has been made by an artificial method of distribution.” – Part 9 #2

Again the power to think correctly for the things we would manifest into our lives is of the highest priority because what we think about grows. As we visualize and affirm what we want (if we control our thinking then to our what-you-think-you-becomeWhat-you-feel-300x300good, if we do not and allow the outside world to dictate our thinking then it is to our ill) we will visualize the outcome. Haanel writes in line 15 “Visualization is the mechanism…” and “The thing visualized will manifest itself in form”

It is our predominant mental attitude that is reflected in our environment. Not the other way around. Our predominant mental attitude and thoughts create the conditions and environment we live in.

This is the most powerful and both exhilarating and frightening concept to come to terms with. I am reminded of the old tale:

A young girl asks “Grandfather why is there bad in the world?” Grandfather replies, “All men have in them 2 wolves, a good wolf and a bad wolf. They constantly do battle to take control of the soul of the man and thereby control his actions and life” Granddaughter asks, “Do you have thisWolves too Grandfather?”  “Yes I do as do we all Granddaughter, We all have both the good and bad wolf fighting with in us” She quietly asks “But which one will win Grandfather?” And he says “The one that I feed my child, the one that I feed”   

This then is the Law of Growth. Which one will you feed?

Until next week!

WEEK 8 – MKMMA experience continues to grow in Focus

I Think Therefore I am! – Descartes

I once heard someone say “You are where you are, living the life and experience you deserve” I got incensed, He went on to tell me “Your circumstances are your own fault” now I was angry!  Maybe you are having negative feelings reading this and like me at the time thinking how can you say that? I did not choose to live like this! It was someone or something else’s fault.  But is it?

“We become what we think about” – Earl Nightingale

The Master Key part 8 – The lesson really knocks the wind out of excuses of thought. “If your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result will be good.”  and this one is killer,

“Any line of thought persisted in cannot fail to produce its result in the CHARACTER, HEALTH, and CIRCUMSTANCES of the individual”  

WOW! I am where I deserve to be or I am where I created to be, by my own thoughts. How? If I don’t like where I am then how do I change this?

IMAGINATION! 

Listen to what you say to yourself over and over, remember a thought repeated and with emotion becomes a belief, and you see that you are imagining a situation in your minds eye or reinforcing an image in your minds eye.

example: This always happens to me! when ever xxxxx then I get xxxxx OR Why do I always lose on these things OR I can’t win!

Do any of those thoughts sound familiar? Eh? Well stop it!

Imagination is the constructive form of thought – IE it creates things!

“You will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, PREDOMINANT mental attitude.” #18 Master Key System

Watch what you think and how you Imagine your life. Imagination and repetition is the key. “We can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which have produced undesirable effects!” #3,4

To have a better outcome then use your imagination and substitute constructive thoughts for destructive thoughts. You are cultivating a mental attitude which will be conducive to constructive thought habit. Be aware of how you talk to yourself then stop it and change the narrative!

Line #24 “Successful men and women make it their business to hold ideals of the conditions which they wish to realize.” “Thoughts are the materials with which they build, and imagination is their mental workshop.” 

Imagine a better you, Imagine a better world, create your own circumstances and life! This is the train I am thinking in terms of IDEALS and using my imagination through relaxed reflection and projection and creating an AWESOME life and experience!

Now I understand and I agree, I am where I am because I created it in my own thoughts! And LOVE IT!

Enjoy your life! (it could be the only one we get!)

Week 7 – Freedom through Forgiveness

Wow! I am totally overwhelmed by the intense nature of this Master Key Alliance/ Master Key Experience! So much going on and so much personal breakthrough. Sometimes I feel it is too much and then I become aware of what is happening within me and I feel thankful for being here and doing this work.

What a Week! Forgiveness is the key. All the baggage we hold onto and carry around with us for a lifetime, it is incredible! Think of Joseph Marley’s ghost in A Christmas Carol, all the chains he was dragging, the locks and boxes of pain and dreams. When we hold a grudge or have a hurt that we won’t let go of we are chained to that thought! We chose to hold this pain and keep it alive on purpose. It really is insane don’t you think; Hi I have this dead skunk here that really bothered me but I just can’t let go of it because then I can’t tell you I have this dead skunk here that really bothers me……

This week we started out by forgiving everyone, even forgiving the hurts we may have forgot about. Let it go, become unchained – FREEDOM. Then we are reading from Og’s scroll 2 “I greet this day with love in my heart” and “I will give love to all I meet” Love is my shield. I also remembered the passage in Mk: if you bring a gift to the alter but have a grievance with your brother, leave the gift and settle with your brother. God wants you to forgive and be free from that before he will accept your gift! You can not give love if you still hold a grudge and you will never be free until you forgive and give love to all!

I am sorry, you may know this already but for me it was a big epiphany! Forgive + Love + be the observer and giving no Opinion (see previous blogs) + using the Mental Law of substitution and dual thought. Along with our new exercise of the 7 day to a new you (see the side panel on this blog and sign up!) The idea is to go a whole week without wallowing in negative thoughts!

I have just gone through 6 days and due to using all the above training and techniques I am observing people give up their happiness and joy to yell at people who don’t even know they exist! I drive a lot and I feel like the Alcoholic who, after being sober for a while, goes to a party and observes drunk people – was I really like that?!

Things that used to trigger my “pre-recorded” tirades and cause me to yell obscenities and make rude gestures simply no longer affect me.  I walk into situations which once would cause me to get very angry and think negative thoughts which now are the same as if I saw a rock on the ground or the squirrel run up a tree; it just is, it does not affect me, I have no Opinion, no heat on it, only love for people and myself. I can instantly say isn’t that interesting and change my focus to something else more conducive to my well being.

I think I may have given up needing to be right!

Well OK, lets not go too far…..

 

Enjoy life! it could be the only one you get… 

Week 6 – Its Not Hocus Pocus Its Just FOCUS

Week Six of Haanel’s Master Key System is my favorite so far! It could be due to I am becoming aware or have better understanding. It could also be that all the exercises from our Master Key Experience is starting to take effect. What ever it is this week’s lesson is to me the cornerstone of my personal journey!

Here in California they say ‘sit under a pyramid, hold crystals in your hand, and chant’ then all the things you want will come to you. Ah yeah, you go on with your good self and have a nice life, bye!

‘Thought is a product of Mind and Mind is creative, but this does not mean that the Universal will change its modus operandi to suit us or our ideas, but it does mean that we can come into harmonious relationship with the Universal, and when we have accomplished this we may ask anything to which we are entitled, and the way will be made plain.’ -Master Key System

WOW! And if you didn’t catch it, how about this “Ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened to you…” But it must be in ‘Harmony’ with the Universal.

Wishful thinking does not do it. Setting goals and sitting on the side line does not do it. Having a positive mental attitude does not do it. These alone are useless, day dreams for people who never expect to accomplish their dream.

Necessities are demands, and demands create action, and actions bring about results. Until your mind is focused and your definite major purpose becomes a necessity then it will remain in the realm of wishful thinking and ever just out of reach. Aspiration, Desire and harmonious relations constantly and persistently maintained will accomplish results!

Directed attention then, gives us all the material things we have in this world. Look no further than each architectural feat where the problem was presented and thought impossible to accomplish and look – there we have it! Buildings reaching the sky, Airplanes, Rockets, Bridges and on and on. Henry Ford told his engineers to build a single block 8 cylinder engine. It was impossible they said and his reply was build it anyway! Directed attention to a single idea and we have the engines we use today. Awesome

The mind is a magnificent mechanism if we can harness it. However it is not wishing or hoping that manifests intention but focused attention on a single ideal.

This only happens with concentrated action. Setting a goal and then trying to wish it into existence calling this the “Law of Attraction” is farce. This is hard mental work but the reward is phenomenal indeed!

What happens when we apply directed concentrated attention to an idea or goal or problem, fixed on a purpose, is akin to using the magnifying glass to start a fire.  If our purpose is in harmony with the Universal and creative/constructive then our faith and desire will generate the energy needed to accomplish our aim.

If you are up to the task then sit and think of that which you want your life to become. It must be as clear as a snapshot! Focus your mind and attention on your goal and become in harmony and balance within then observe as the methods and tools you need become apparent for your advancement.

Happy thinking!
