Amazing to think that 24 weeks ago I started on this journey of self discovery…NOT self help but discovering for myself the answers to some questions about life. I think we all ask ourselves these questions at some point in our lives. My wife likes to call it my “midlife crisis” but I think everyone experiences it for different reasons, it’s just a matter of where that takes us in our life.
As Haanel wraps up The Master Key, he asks us to look at things differently, change our perspective of how we view the world through our 5 senses. What is sound or light? They are vibrations that we perceive as light and sound. So the sound is not in the radio, it is in our mind. If someone has had a head injury or a stroke the sound coming out of the radio is not different but it is perceived differently by that person. The light from the sun is nothing more than energy made into vibrations called light waves, change the rate of the vibration and the color we perceive is different. “so that although we speak of the rose as being red, the grass as being green, or the sky as being blue, we know that the colors exist only in our minds, and are the sensations experienced by us as the result of the vibrations of light waves.” If someone is color blind it’s not that the grass isn’t green or the rose isn’t red, it’s just perceived differently by that person…as shades of gray. Therefore, everything comes from within…The TRUTH is inside us, but where inside us? That is what we have to discover for ourselves, no one can do it for us. Our Spirit, that energy that makes us who we are contains everything we need to know and the only way to discover it is to “go into the silence” of our mind. Haanel gives us this simple direction but one that only a few people can grasp…”remember that no matter what the difficulty is, no matter where it is, no matter who is affected, you have no patient but yourself; you have nothing to do but to convince yourself of the truth which you desire to see manifested.”
This was the first video that came up on Youtube….coincident…No, thank you universal mind!
“Truth manifests in character, and the character of man, should be the interpretation of his religion, or what to him is Truth, and this will in turn be evidenced in the character of his possession.” Our future is determined by our present circumstances and if we don’t like what we see or we want to change where our life is going we just have to look within to find the cause thus changing the effect or what is manifesting in our life.
The spirit only has one power, to think. Haanel ends the Master Key with these two statements…”therefore, thought must be creative, because spirit is creative. This creative power is impersonal and your ability to think is your ability to control it and make use of it for the benefit of yourself and others.” “When the TRUTH of that statement is realized, understood, and appreciated, you will have come into possession of The Master-Key, but remember that only those who are wise enough to understand, broad enough to weigh the evidence, firm enough to follow their own judgement, and strong enough to make the sacrifice exacted, may enter and partake.”
