MK Week 10 – Recognition
Turn, Turn, Turn
This week Haanel talks of the difference between those who do and those who do not understand the Law of Cause and Effect. We can allow our emotions to be the spring board for thought and action, seek to justify ourselves and make excuses or blame others; Or we can understand that there is no effect without cause, and deliberately choose our thoughts, attach the emotions we want and find freedom to follow the trail of truth. From last weeks posts you may have noticed the word LIVE spelt in reverse says EVIL. I have come to understand on a deeper level that basically all evil is is living life backwards. By allowing the circumstances of my life right now to control my emotions and then act accordingly, instead of making a deliberate, conscious choice to follow my own heart.
We all get upset and angry sometimes, and our natural propensity is to vizualise the worst, imagine all the things that could go wrong and blame others for the hurt and pain we feel. This line of thinking is fear based and leads to lack. As a good friend reminded me this week, where thought goes energy flows! By accepting 100% responsibility for our lives, for our thoughts and the actions we take, we begin to gain control of the things that happen in our life. It’s fun to be an observer of yourself, and make decisions based on what you want from a place of love. Use your creative imagination to vizualise yourself already doing the thing you desire, imagine and feel the emotions inside as you steer your thoughts like a captain steers his ship.
‘Knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation, enables man to plan courageously and execute fearlessly. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern in the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.’ (Haanel 10:3)
‘Spiritual power is superior because it exists on a higher plane’. Thought is the Masterkey, and every thought is like a seed being ‘dropped into the invisible substance of the Universal Mind’. When focused upon and given vitality through our emotions they grow and attract more thoughts of like vibration. Doesn’t it just make logical sense to plant seeds of that which we want to grow? Like Electricity and Gravity are active, never ceasing energy, ‘Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world.’ We don’t have to remember to plant our feet firmly on the ground every morning to prevent ourselves floating off into the stratosphere!!!! We accept the natural physical laws of nature as reliable and constant. We use them whether we understand them or not, and usually on an unconscious level, unless we want to do something deliberately.
Life begins to be so much more fun when you know what you want, and realise you are both responsible and Response-Able! Recognition of your own ability to control your thoughts is the connecting link that turns the Key and unlocks the door to the life you want. ‘Thought is the connecting link between the Infinite and the finite, between the Universal and the Individual.’
