Conscious thought, then, is master of this sun centre from which the life and energy of the entire body flows and the quality of the thought which we entertain determines the quality of the thought which this sun will radiate, and the character of the thought which our conscious mind entertains will determine the character of the thought which this sun will radiate, and the nature of the thought which our conscious mind entertains will determine the nature of thought which this sun will radiate, and consequently will determine the nature of the experience which will result.
It is evident, therefore, that all we have to do is let our light shine; the more energy we can radiate, the more rapidly shall we be enabled to transmute undesirable conditions into sources of pleasure and profit. The important question, then, is how to let this light shine; how to generate this energy.
Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contracts it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom.
It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life.
When you find that you are really one with the Infinite power, and when you can consciously realize this power by a practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into possession of your birthright.
It is our attitude of mind toward life which determines the experiences with which we are to MKMMA Master Keys 20 meet; if we expect nothing, we shall have nothing; if we demand much, we shall receive the greater portion. The world is harsh only as we fail to assert ourselves. The criticism of the world is bitter only to those who cannot compel room for their ideas. It is fear of this criticism that causes many ideas to fail to see the light of day.
But the man who knows that he has a Solar Plexus will not fear criticism or anything else; he will be too busy radiating courage, confidence, and power; he will anticipate success by his mental attitude; he will pound barriers to pieces, and leap over the chasm of doubt and hesitation which fear places in his path.
A knowledge of our ability to consciously radiate health, strength and harmony will bring us into a realization that there is nothing to fear because we are intouch with Infinite Strength.
The Law of Dual Thought simply states “Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.”
Haanel, in week 2, writes: “Our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas and ignorance of our true interests. The great task is to discover the laws of nature to which we are to adjust ourselves. Clear thinking and moral insight are, therefore, of incalculable value. All processes, even those of thought, rest on solid foundations.
The keener the sensibilities, the more acute the judgment, the more delicate the taste, the more refined the moral feelings, the more subtle the intelligence, the loftier the aspiration — the purer and more intense are the gratifications which existence yields. Hence, it is that the study of the best that has been thought in the world, gives supreme pleasure.
The powers, uses, and possibilities of the mind under the new interpretations, are incomparably more wonderful than the most extravagant accomplishment, or even dreams of material progress. Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power.”
Thought is energy.
Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power.
This is where controlling your thoughts comes in…that on which you concentrate your thoughts will become your reality.
You decide. What kind of energy or feeling are you attaching to your thoughts? A big challenge comes up. Is it a roadblock or an opportunity? The beauty is that you get to choose!
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
Heading into a new session, I am reflecting on where I have been and where I am going. I was introduced to the Master Key Experience 2 years ago and joined as a member. That was an amazing experience, which ended up being a year to clear a bunch of cement that had literally just been piled on top of the cement already stuck on from years past. Then, because as a teacher I learn by doing, I made the decision to become a Guide to help others along their journey to greatness, which helped me learn and grow also. I am now a Certified Guide and embarking on this adventure yet again.
As we get started, yes I am a Guide, but I am taking the opportunity to start fresh with the habits of the sit, writing my DMP, and completing the daily reads. I am anticipating new growth in myself and the accomplishment of goals. Life has changed in 2020. What I thought was important when I wrote my first DMP has changed, and my updates written during Spring Break are no longer totally in line with what I want now, with the changing world in which we find ourselves. What is important looks a little different through the lens of living during a pandemic and I look forward to see where my DMP tweaks and this new adventure takes me.
