Changes – Week 16
Haanel states in Chapter 16-1&5 of “The Master Key System”:
Wealth is a product of labor. Capital is an effect, not a cause; a servant, not a master; a means, not an end.
Wealth should then never be desired as an end, but simply as a means of accomplishing an end. Success is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches, and he who aspires to such success must formulate an ideal for which he is willing to strive.
In 16-8 he writes:
The power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power. There are three steps: Idealization, visualization, and materialization.
These statements caused me to contemplate what they meant to me. Means is an action or system by which a result is brought about – a method.
I’ve been using methods learned in MKMMA to accomplish an end, my Definite Major Purpose (DMP). I do find myself quoting from my DMP when negative thoughts try to lodge in my mind. I’ve seen some results already – results of the ideal for which I am willing to strive.
I still felt like something was holding me back and like I was fighting with myself – old blueprint vs. new blueprint, or as the Bible says, old man vs. new man.
One of my main reasons for participating MKMMA is to develop methods to renew my mind more quickly than I have in the past.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Transformed in this verse is the Greek word for metamorphosis. The best example is the transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
I have been successful in renewing my mind in the past but I want more faster. I’m willing to do the work.
Recently, I felt the cocoon wrapping around me. Not again! But then I changed my mind to think I must on the brink of a breakthrough.
Again, in 16-8 it states that, “the power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power.”
The way I could make this my own is to see that if I want manifestation of my DMP, which is mostly five senses, is to view it from a spiritual perspective. What do I need to visualize to breakthrough where I felt stuck? What I determined was to picture those things for which I am currently believing as if they are already accomplished and myself at the level I need to be to see them accomplished. So, the focus is not on the “stuff” but on the growth within me, the spiritual maturity I need to handle the things I want.
This can be backed Biblically:
(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
I visualized myself during my Sit (meditation) and today I felt like I’m closer to my breakthrough. There is still some struggle, but the cocoon is loosening.
