So here we are week fourteen of the Master Key Experience. A little concerned because there was no weekly webinar. But not to worry, this week’s reading made up for no webinar. The week’s reading was very profound.
There is so much I got from this week’s reading. First there is the symbiotic connection between the conscious and subconscious. Hanaal likened the connection to that relationship between the weather vane and the atmosphere. One reacts to the action of the other. I think of the weekly exercises in the same manner, the readings and the activities are the things we do consciously act upon our subconscious. This also brings the mind the power of thought.
Thought has the power to manifest any thing we desire. In previous lessons Hanaal made the argument that the only limit lies solely in the limitation of our thoughts. As I set out on this journey to manifest my dharma, self-doubt and negative talk are the limitations that keep me from getting there. I am recognizing the limits I place on myself as an introvert. I used that fact to stay in my comfort zone. self-limiting thoughts and self-doubt held me back for a long time.
When I first began master key and learning about the old blue print. The focus was on changing the old blueprint. I am an introvert at heart and those characteristics came naturally to me. I struggled with the change, I still do. I wasn’t trying to change who I am, I wanted to change the self-limiting thoughts I held. While I know change doesn’t happen overnight, there was an important element I did not consider. I failed to consider what as Hanaal says, “A plant will remain visible for some time after its roots have been cut, but it will gradually fade away and eventually disappear, so the withdrawal of your thought from the contemplation of unsatisfactory conditions will gradually, but surely, terminate these conditions”. In other words, the old blueprint will be visible as we are making change and overtime as I focus my thoughts on the what I truly desire the things that get in the way will eventually go away. As Hanaal says thought then is the only thing that is real. Our outward conditions are the result of our thoughts. If we want change, we must change what we think.
Hanaal warns that thought must be clear-cut and steadfast. He says we cannot expect to see change if we are taking one step towards what we desire but two steps away from it. Just as we can’t expect to live with our old blueprint our whole lives and assume change will come with 15 to 20 minutes of new thinking. Radical change requires deliberate unwavering action and commitment.
Conditions are a result of thoughts, therefore if we want to change our conditions, we have to change our thoughts. It is in us to change. Then it stands, if we are looking for external success to deliver us, we will forever be searching. Nothing outside of us will get us where you want to be; only the world within can do that. We must believe in ourselves. My take away for week 14 is that, we are enough.
