Commencement: I Am But A Thought And So I Begin It

“LIFE IS JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION”

Haanel 24: INTRO

The fruit of this knowledge is, as it were, a gift of the Gods; it is the “truth” that makes men free, not only free from every lack and limitation, but free from sorrow, worry and care, and, is it not wonderful to realize that this law is no respecter of persons, that it makes no difference what your habit of thought may be, the way has been prepared.

If you are inclined to be religious, the greatest religious teacher the world has ever known made the way so plain that all may follow. If your mental bias is toward physical science, the law will operate with mathematical certainty. If you are inclined to be philosophical, Plato or Emerson may be your teacher, but in either case, you may reach degrees of power to which it is impossible to assign any limit.

An understanding of this principle, I believe, is the secret for which the ancient Alchemists vainly sought, because it explains how gold in the mind may be transmuted into gold in the heart and in the hand.

HARMONY

 A partial definition of Harmony:

  1. agreement; accord; harmonious relations.
    2. a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts; congruity.

Harmony lives within and spreads outward.  We all began as a thought, as a child is but a thought until conceived.  It is a thought put to action that creates the wonders of the world around us and in us.  It is the habits we create that shape our world and determine our future, conscious and unconscious.

Life is but a perspective and every individual adds a single different view to the whole creation.  When those views come together in harmony they create wonder.   Mastermind, for great wonder’s, begin when we come together with one focus for good harming none but in support and encouragement.  We are a miracle. 

 

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT — WAS ONCE ONLY A THOUGHT

I carry my communicator in my hand untethered and can speak to anyone I choose in the world if I know their number.  It does more than just function as a communicating device.  I can also capture images, sounds and play games, create words and many other things I am sure I have not named.

One day, I may actually be able to say “Beam me up, Scotty” and be transported out of this world something that is a thought in a fictional story today.

THOUGHT IS POWER OF MIND AND MIND IS POWER OF CREATION

We have found that thought is the creative activity behind every constructive enterprise. We can, therefore, give nothing of more practical value than our thought. 

Creative thought requires attention, and the power of attention is, as we have found, the weapon of the Superman. Attention develops concentration, and concentration develops Spiritual Power, and Spiritual Power is the mightiest force in existence.

~Haanel 23: Intro~

~ Haanel 24: 29

Now, the only activity which the spirit possesses is the power to think.
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.

~Haanel 23: 10

10. The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason, we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire. Many are constantly concentrating upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitably leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise? On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.

 

The work within me continues, as  I shake off this harness of ego, so the potential thought of me can exist, just be, serve, and live the life I was intended to live so abundance overflows to all those around and near me.   Today I am a changed. I exist anew.  I can do whatever I put my mind to just as my mother always told me for the light of knowledge has given me the key to my own success.

I am grateful for the tools and exercises I have learned in this course that help me learn to direct my intention so I can live a joyful, loving and harmonious future.

I am the captain in a universal sea of potential.  I am the observer of self.  I always keep my promise in so doing I remain vigilant, focused, and creative.  Although I have already journeyed far in this life, my journey once more is just beginning in gratitude, thankfulness, and love.

WEEK 19

~Haanel 19: 10  Mind is the real and the eternal. Matter is forever changing; we know that in the eons of time a hundred years is but as a day. If we stand in any large city and let the eye rest on the innumerable large and magnificent buildings, the vast array of conveniences of modern civilization, we may remember that not one of them was there just over a century ago, and if we could stand on the same spot in a hundred years from now, in all probability we should find that but few of them remained.

JOURNEY OF CHANGE:  A PERSPECTIVE

  • Recognize Need – Be Humble & Gracious
  • Be Aware of areas of Weakness – Be Compassionate
  • Understand  – Forgive & Let go (includes forgiving self)
  • Accept – Give Yourself Permission to enjoy, living in abundance in all areas, wealth & health
  • Learn, Practice repeatedly – Have Courage, Embrace Change
  • Build, Apply – Persistence  “Persist Until You Succeed” Do the work! Do it now!
  • Preserve, Never Give Up, If you can’t go thru it, go around it, over or under or just fly –GERONIMO!
  •  Evolve, Grow – Give it your ALL, All in or all out, no half measures (“Do not begin a thing unless you intent to finish come hell or high water and then finish it anyway”. ~paraphased ad-lib of Haanel.)
  • ACHIEVE, Succeed  ~ The reward is in the journey.  Everything else is just icing on the cake!

THEN BEGIN AGAIN!  Something new or journey the same path become the expert and/or teacher.  (Specialized Skill)

We all stumble.  We all at some point half-ass it.  Lack complete understanding, miss the point or parts of it or drop the ball.  That’s okay, we’re human.  Begin again or just pick up where you left off and continue forward.  You have only one life to live. Live the life you want the best way you can. Live it your way because at the end of the day or life it’s you that stands alone in the departure. You hold the responsibility whether you own up to it or not- come what may.  Take the driver’s seat now while the opportunity of choice still lives even IF it is only in the way you think or feel.  Change begins within.  We are all heading the same direction and there are an infinite number of paths to get there. Pick One!

This statement below makes me smile.  It encapsulates the negative turning it to the positive in truth and allowing the freedom to just be.
