“Nothing is original, we just discover what is hidden.” This comment passed by my brother, a philosophy major, as we discuss my discovery of and contemplations on Master Key.
He was quiet impressed that I am no longer gazing into my scientific navel.
My mental explorations on Master Key have returned old thoughts from my subconscious to my conscious mind, two ideas in particular. Then to my amazement there are those same concepts expressed in week 3 and week 4 of Master Key.
Several years ago whilst musing on the nature of God, the universe and mankind.
In my own very simple thought pattern, I determined, that God had to be part of each of us. Well, as usual I bounced this idea off my philosopher brother. “Nothing new there but you have independently come across something philosophers have discussed for ages.”
“Oh right.” I said and promptly moved on with life.
Then Master Key Week 4 sections 15, 18 and 19 brought it all back to me.
Section 15: “This is not so strange or impossible as it may appear when you remember that the “World Within” is controlled by the “I” and that this “I” is a part of one with the Infinite ……… “.
Section 18: “We are coming to think of God as dwelling in man rather than as operating on man from without.” from Lyman Abbott.
Section 19: “Know ye that ye are the temple of the living God?” from 1 Corinthians 3:16.
I still read chapter 4, or week 4, of Master Key as I find it so enlightening and confirming of the path we are on together.
Again, some time ago as I searched for that “something” in life. A friend of mine recommended that I read “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. Well I never finished it.
However, it did make me reflect on a book,”Whee! We, Wee; All The Way Home.” by Matthew Fox that I had finished.
Matthew Fox’s book is about sensual and prophetic spirituality. Matthew’s book reminding me of the fact that “each of us is a bearer of ecstasy and therefore of God.”
Rhonda Fox, Matthew Byrne plus other thoughts on meditation and prayer brought to my mine at the time that all these practices at the base level were the same. One had only to believe and contemplate and eventually things fell into place.
BELIEF and passion though were involved in bringing all of these to fruition.
Well I did contemplate on some of the things required in my life; and aspects manifested themselves in miraculous ways. Not always to my choosing.
Master Key chapter 4 and also Mark J’s videos brought everything home with a thud.
I had not made my revelation a HABIT and I had contaminated my thoughts. The end result was attained but not in any fashion that I would wish upon anyone.
I reflect constantly these words from week 4 section 22 “The Universal cannot express through you as long as you are busy with your plans, ….”
or from section 25 “Silence that we can be still, and when we are still, we can think, and thought is the secret of all attainment.” Then there was the fantastic videos on neural pathways and neuropeptides especially video 1 from 5:50 to 6:10 minutes.
As I proceed with Master Keys I remember these things and BELIEVE with passion that I am on the right path to change my life with good habits.
Finally a quote from Albert Einstein: “That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”
p.s. Does having to write these blogs stir up your passion and belief? It certainly does for me. I see the point, as well as reading the experiences of everyone else.
