Silence is the voice of GOD. Practice to be “quiet” 15 minutes minimum daily per day. And listen.
After going through an amazing 50 minutes exercise this week, I was able to witness my true, future self. I felt energized, vibrant, and vibrating to the frequency of the reality I envision. Nevertheless, hesitation and reluctance to answer the call raised their ugly heads. For a couple of days the “old blueprint” attempted to reestablish itself and got me out of the flow and consistency of my exercises. But thank God for the strength he gave me to push forward. I am still in the game.
Borrowing a phrase for Og Mandino’s, Scroll III, “So long as there is breath is me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win. I will persist. I will win.”
Knowledge never applies itself. It is only through DYNAMIC ACTIVITY that action applied into TIME and within and throughout the resistance of STRUGGLE, does the man or woman of POWER attain his/her dream.
“The only only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.” from Master Key Part 12, 4.
I think this summarizes most of the material we have cover so far up to week 12 of the Master Key system. We must have the knowledge of the power that we possess: the power to think, to focus, to mold reality. When we know what we have, we can then use it to our advantage. When we have that, we can then dare to dream — and dream big! We can make big plans and pursue big goals. That’s when we do, because we have faith in out thoughts, our plans, and the actions that we will take.
To me the knowledge of my power is the discovery of my true self; daring to dream is to answer the call; and the faith to do is to take action! Knowledge will not apply itself.
In this week lesson Haanel mentions that the combination of Thought and Love forms an irresistible force:
21. It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction. All natural laws are irresistible. The law of Gravitation, or Electricity, or any other law operates with mathematical exactitude. There is no variation. It is only the channel of distribution which may be imperfect. If a bridge falls, we do not attribute the collapse to any variation of the law of gravitation. If a light fails us, we do not conclude that the laws governing electricity cannot be depended upon. Thus, if the law of attraction seems to be imperfectly demonstrated by an inexperienced or uninformed person, we are not to conclude that the greatest and most infallible law upon which the entire system of creation depends has been suspended. We should rather conclude that a little more understanding of the law is required, for the same reason that a correct solution of a difficult problem in Mathematics is not always readily and easily obtained.
If you have watched the video clip about the “One Thing”, the conversation between Jack Palance and Billy Crystal on the movie “City Slickers”, part 25 perfectly explains it. I hope it brings clarity to you as well.
“The intention governs the attention. Power comes through repose. It is by concentration that deep thoughts, wise speech, and all forces of high potentiality are accomplished.”
I have much more to reflect on and share with you, but I will wrap this blog post with a portion from part 18:
“There is no getting away from the law of Love. It is a feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is Desire, and Desire is Love/. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.”
Today I begin a new life..
I greet this day with Love in my heart.
I persist until I succeed.
I always keep my promises,
