Iâ€™m looking back to Week 5â€™s Master Key and doing some mental housecleaning tonight. I am also reminded that knowledge does not apply itself, so a few DMP areas not manifesting as I would like will need some attention. Iâ€™m going to include excerpted highlighted areas from my Week 5 Master Key reading.
From the introduction: But thought works no magic transformations; it obeys natural laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually upon the whole of your environment. You can originate thought, and, since thoughts are creative, you can create for yourself the things you desire.
Paragraph 2. The subconscious can and will solve any problem for us if we know how to direct it.
Paragraph 5. We can consciously use all the desirable characteristics with which we have been provided and we can repress and refuse to allow the undesirable ones to manifest.
Paragraph 8. This, then is the way we are consistently creating and recreating ourselves; we are today the result of our past thinking, and we shall be what we are thinking today, the Law of Attraction is bringing to us, not the things we should like, or the things we wish for, or the things someone else has, but it brings us â€œour own,â€ the things which we have created by our thought processes, whether consciously or unconsciously.
Paragraph 12. The thing to do is to have a mental housecleaning, and to have this housecleaning every day, and keep the house clean. Mental, moral, and physical cleanliness are absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.
Paragraph 16. To gain this estate, three processes are necessary: You must earnestly desire it. You must assert your claim. You must take possession.
Paragraph 29. Now, go to your room, take the same seat, the same position as heretofore, and mentally select a place which has pleasant associations. Make a complete mental picture of it, see the buildings, the grounds, the trees, friends, associations, everything complete. At first, you will find yourself thinking of everything under the sun, except the ideal upon which you desire to concentrate. But do not let that discourage you. Persistence will win, but persistence requires that you practice these exercises every day without fail.
Pay close attention to paragraph 8. It makes it very clear we are an ongoing evolution. If our past thinking was not to our liking, we can change that by changing our thinking effective immediately. Persistence, continued, will eventually result in our new thinking becoming a reality in our lives. Do your mental housekeeping.
