Reflections on the work for this week:
Charles Haanel writes in line 2 of Part Five of the Master Key:
2. The subconscious can and will solve any problem for us if we know how to direct it. The subconscious processes are always at work; the only question is, are we to be simply passive recipients of this activity, or are we to consciously direct the work? Shall we have a vision of the destination to be reached, the dangers to be avoided, or shall we simply drift?
I find myself this week lingering in a more quiet state. We, in week 5, are taking the time to observe, to listen, to learn and refrain from opinion! This is a rewarding and restful state to be in.
It adds space to ponder. ( Law of Relaxation) I added line 2 above, because, I observe, that when I open space to take in without opinion, I also open space to to learn more about what I want. ( Law of Substitution) This is not a passive act for me. I have learned that in taking the space to exchange opinion for observation, I also can more clearly see what I want. This speaks into the Law of the Mind on Dual Thought. We cannot think of 2 things at once. Space for reflection leaves my heart space to see what makes my heart sing. Then, heads me in that direction which speaks to the Law of Grow, what we think about grows, what we forget atrophies.
I can employ my mind to create visions of the most creative sort which lifts my heart, and these visions, as promised, are not passive. These visualizations are the path to the solution, the path to perfecting and manifesting what we want. Here I can implement the Law of Practice. When I can see a thing that is desired, when I can see it so clearly that we become it, then, the thing or experience I want is, by law to come my way. It is real, it is true.
I find that the Observer mind most useful and Opinion mind hindering to this end. I am so grateful for the quieting of my mind.
And, to conclude, I also know that I am not perfect in this application, and I continue to practice, so I offer myself the Law of Forgiveness…this leaves space to continue in grace.
How about you?
