Wow…this week has been incredible in the world within! To say that part 21 is amazing is an understatement! For whatever reasons, some parts of the Master Keys hit me harder than others…some weeks are kind of just meh… Others are like KAPOW!
Of course, knowing all that the master key experience has taught me, I know that the way in which the readings affect me, is actually coming from within me, not from the material itself, which is why I am excited to know that I will absolutely be going through this material again in the same fashion, one week at a time as it was designed to be.
But anyhow, this weeks lesson was just fantastic. It seemed to really encapsulate all that we have learned in the last 21 weeks and rephrase it all in this one easy to digest lesson.
I just got done my sit for the day and I read one of the last sentences of Part 21 and it says:
“…nothing can permanently stand in the way of your perfect success when
you learn to apply the scientifically correct thought methods and principles. Realize that you are externalizing in your environment your inherent soul potencies. Realize that the Silence offers an ever-available and almost unlimited opportunity for awakening the highest conception of truth. Try to comprehend that Omnipotence itself is absolute silence, all else is change, activity, limitation. Silent thought concentration is, therefore, the true method of reaching, awakening, and then expressing the wonderful potential power of the world within.”
Somehow I hadn’t noticed the part that says omnipotence itself is silence… that just blows me away for some reason.
It reminds me of our last webby when we talked about us being made up of mostly nothing! It reminds me of the part in the movie I AM where he goes to the heartmath institute and they discuss that space between heartbeats… that nothingness and how it actually has a lot of information in it. It reminds me of the OM sound that mystics do, trying to get to that one deep frequency that is at the core of all life.
People spend their whole lives looking for it and as it turns out we have it all along. How cool is that?
More and more, thought by thought, word by word, observation by observation I am becoming more and more deliberate and careful about how I construct my thoughts, my visualizations and especially the words that I utter or write.
Things that used to be a careless joke or an exaggeration are now, in my observation, a choice to speak life or death into the world. Things that used to seem like “I can’t help but feel that way” are now, in my observation, easily taken over by the law of substitution, the law of growth, the law of relaxation and therein, the law of practice. Haanel does say, basically, that it doesn’t come instantly. This kind of mental work does take practice but it is SO worth the work, worth figuring out!
