This week, I am feeling led to focus on a few of the statements from the Master Key, Part 14. I grapple sometimes with whole focus of the subconscious being the “thing” that helps to bring our desires into reality. With this thought in mind as I was reading Part 14, I was able to create some kind of balance with my thoughts about the subconscious, and my belief in God.
Part 14:19 states, ” The objective world is controlled by an unseen and, heretofore, unexplained power. We have, heretofore, personalized this power and called it God. We have now, however, learned to look upon it as the permeating essence or Principle of all that exists- the Infinite or Universal Mind.”
Part 14:20 continues, ” The Universal Mind, being infinite and omnipotent, has unlimited resources at its command, and when we remember that it is also omnipresent, we cannot escape the conclusion that we must be an expression or manifestation of that Mind.”
These two statements in themselves reminded me that because our bodies were created by a greater Being, and this Being is God, and He does all things well, then our minds are also a part of His creation and therefore able to think and create great things. We are encouraged to think about good things, and believe that we can do “.. all things through Him that gives us the strength.” My faith tells me that God has a plan and that Jesus wants me to believe that Nothing is impossible with God, and more importantly that no matter what my plan is, and what my mind can conceive, this is minute/weak in comparison to God. I must keep this in the forefront of all I strive after in my life. I must strive, but it all must be kept in perspective and I must maintain a balance because what I think about can in fact come into being because history shows us that when someone thinks evil and does evil, they eventually become so evil that it is incomprehensible. Likewise with the creative, positive thoughts we feed our subconscious.
Part 14:22, starts out by saying, ‘ Do you, can you, appreciate the value of this all-important fact; do you realize that a recognition of this tremendous fact places you in touch with Omnipotence? The subconscious mind being the connecting link between the Universal Mind and the conscious mind, is it not evident that the conscious mind can consciously suggest thoughts which the subconscious mind will put into action, and as the subconscious is one with the Universal(God), is it not evident that no limit can be placed upon its activities?” I believe this- that I have greatness in me to achieve great things because of the abilities that have been bestowed upon me from the Omnipotent One.
Napoleon Hill puts it all together when he states, ” Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” I will continue to believe in the plan for my life, my ability to think of and create positive actions/desires that will result in their fulfilment, trust the vehicle(MKE), keep the balance and never forgetting that everything must align with the Author and Finisher of all things.
“ I always keep my Promises!”
