Sharing two short excerpt from Master Key System (what a mind blowing book – only on week 3). I’m chewing on these thoughts today:
“The subconscious can and will carry out such plans and ideas as may be suggested to it by the conscious mind. Conscious thought, then, is master of this sun center from which the life and energy of the entire body flows and the quality of the thought which we entertain determines the quality of the thought which this sun will radiate… and consequently will determine the nature of the experience which will result.”
“It is our attitude of mind toward life which determines the experiences that we are to meet; If we expect nothing, we shall have nothing; If we demand much, we shall receive the greater portion. The world is harsh only as we fail to assert ourselves. The criticism of the world is bitter only to those who cannot compel room for their ideas. It is fear of this criticism that causes many ideas to fail to see the light of day.”
My Takeaways: Our subconscious mind controls the intricate involuntary system within our body that resonates with the universe – it operates on “truths” that our conscious minds teach us. Our conscious mind perceives and rationalizes certain “truths” into our belief system. Whether our conscious mind chooses thoughts that are good and right, or bad and wrong, our subconscious will accept them and act accordingly, ultimately the resulting experiences are in line with our core beliefs, values, and morals. Good and right thoughts beget good experiences; Bad and wrong thoughts beget bad experiences. All experiences begin with thoughts.
Fear is the manifestation of negative “truths” from our conscious mind on our subconscious system that result in bitterness, scarcity, and failure to realize one’s calling.
I have heard much skepticism about the power of thought alone and I agree that it takes more than a passing whim to institute real, tangible change in one’s life circumstances. But, I also believe that there is something powerful about learning to control the seemingly involuntary thoughts that go through our minds – to control what we think about ourselves, what we deserve, and what we are capable of achieving in our lives. That is all inner voice – and mastery of that is something all artists and creatives would do well to achieve so that we can really tune into the universe and all of its abundance.
This is very much in line with my experiment this week to quiet the world around me and really listen to my innermost thoughts. Already in just a day, I feel so much more present and focused.
