We’re at the place in the course where we’re learning about the power of our thoughts. This has been building since the beginning, this week, paragraphs 17-18 of the Master Key lesson drives it home:
17. This conception is also elaborated by Swedenborg in his doctrine of correspondences; and a still greater teacher has said, “What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24) The difference of the tenses in this passage is remarkable.
18. We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact.
Paragraph 25 elaborates:
25. The truth must be told to each generation and to every people in new and different terms, so that when the Great Teacher said — “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive” or, when Paul said — “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” or, when modern science says — “The law of attraction is the law by which thought correlates with its object”, each statement when subjected to analysis, is found to contain exactly the same truth. The only difference being in the form of presentation.
We started a new scroll this month, too. The key of the scroll? “I persist until I succeed.”
We think about what we want for our lives using our SIT time. We determine our desire and imagine it fully. We believe we shall achieve it. We persist until we succeed. This does not mean we do not have to work hard for what we want. But as we continue to use our imagination to make our desires into reality, our faith grows and we look for the opportunities we need to present themselves. What you want most. What you need most. It’s within your grasp. Begin preparing yourself for it, then look for the opportunity to begin to achieve it. Remember, paragraph 5 of the Blueprint Builder, “I fully realize no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects.” Make certain your imaginings and your faith is built upon sound principles. Get to thinking!
Last week, I posted that I’d lost track of a couple of weeks. What happens when this happens? Momentum flags. Sure, it carries forward for a little while, then the doubts begin to creep in. The less than encouraging self-talk begins to find it’s way into your head.
That’s right, just like a nutritional diet suffers when we lose focus, so does the mental diet. Instead of chipping off the cement, we begin troweling it back on!
I started the month thrilled that I was greeting each day with love in my heart, and as the month wore on, I felt less of that. Not a good feeling. The wonder is I recognized this and knew it wasn’t right. I’m confident I can get this latest batch of cement brushed off before it hardens. Then I can resume chipping away at the old stuff.
It’s all been a blur. I have no idea where the time went. I’ve been traveling, but I should at least have been able to get Week 7 posted, and I have no idea why I didn’t. I’m going to … Continue reading →
We’re beginning a new month — November. We celebrate American Thanksgiving later this month. Last month, my Canadian friends celebrated, so I have two months focusing on gratitude and thankfulness. We started a new scroll on the first. Scroll 2 … Continue reading →
A book we’re discussing in a book club has a chapter about determining our WHY, which dovetails nicely with this week. Of course, I have my DMP, and it’s manifesting, but there are some aspects that may not fully manifest … Continue reading →
Paragraph 2 of the BluePrintBuilder reminds us: “I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily upon the … Continue reading →
The topic for Week 3 in Master Keys is Cause and Effect — Thought is the cause. The experiences we meet are the effect. The key take away from this is if my life is not where I want it … Continue reading →
I’m fascinated with the subconscious this week. When you’re ready, this week’s materials are littered with useful references. The obvious one is in Scroll 1, p. 56, “As I repeat the words daily they soon become part of my active … Continue reading →
One of the joys of repeating the MKE course is rediscovering gems from the previous year. Week 1 of the Master Keys talks about the Universal Mind. In one of those “inexplicable things” we frequently encounter, I’m “bug-hunting” a friend’s … Continue reading →
The Color Code folks say I’m a Blue and my motive is intimacy. Of the colors and descriptions offered on this site, I guess that’s pretty accurate. I’ve taken a few other color code tests, and in the most prominent … Continue reading →
