WOW! Week three of reading the Master Key course was like a mini study of Think and Grow Rich for me. So many of the “keys” resonated with me on a very personal level. It’s always fascinating to me to learn about how things work and the Brain is certainly in that category of things to learn about.
One thing that was interesting especially to me is the key related to magnetism. So many are teaching, especially in the network marketing arena, about magnetic or attraction marketing as if it’s a new phenomena. It’s been there the whole time. Clearly stated in item 6. “If this radiation is sufficiently strong the person is called magnetic; he is said to be filled with personal magnetism. Such a person may wield an immense power for good. His presence alone will often bring comfort to the troubled minds with which he comes in contact.” Does it not seem reasonable then that all we need to do is develop that part of the brain; there’s no secret that someone has to induce it into the brain. Therefore, all one need do is follow the instructions given to develop this part of their magnetic self.
I am reminded also of auto-suggestion in item 11. The subconscious can and will carry out such plan and ideas as may be suggested to it by the conscious mind. Hence, it’s very important that we carry out the skills as taught by Mark to reprogram that old subby and how it chooses to think. Remember the subby makes all the decisions.
I am a bit perplexed with item 27. which says “When making a practical application of this principle, in accordance with the exercises given in the subsequent lessons, it is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the method by which the subconscious will produce the results you desire. The finite cannot inform the infinite. You are simply to say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it. My understanding when writing our DMP’s was that we needed to include how we were going to obtain it. At this juncture, I am confused and will need to seek clarification.
I’m still working on the “sitting” exercise and I have not yet conquered that yet, but it’s going to happen. From a medical perspective, it’s something I greatly need to do for myself.
I want to close this week with a poem I stumbled upon recently and wanted to share. It’s from Catlin, a 10th grade student, at the Red Cloud Indian School.Red Road “It’s peace defying it holds no violence that’s why I follow it in silence It is the Red Road Peace and Harmony is what it shows Canku Luta some might say Strong and bold is how you play look into yourself That’s how you find it Do good for the people Don’t let evil blind it Look into Jesus’ eyes Walk with his pride At the end when you take flight You’re guaranteed a spot in paradise.”
