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!
