This week, in Charles Haanel’s, Master Key System, I read the following:
3. This is because the Infinite Mind, which is the source from which all things proceed, is one and indivisible, and each individual is a channel whereby this Eternal Energy is being manifested. Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance, and what we think is what is created or produced in the objective world.
4. The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous, and means that mind is extraordinary in quality, limitless in quantity, and contains possibilities without number. To become conscious of this power is to become a ”live wire”; it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged. The Universal is the live wire. It carries power sufficient to meet every situation which may arise in the life of every individual. When the individual mind touches the Universal Mind it receives all the power it requires. This is the world within. All science recognizes the reality of this world, and all power is contingent upon our recognition of this world.
I believe that the Universal Mind is God. So, God “…is the source from which all things proceed…”, and, “Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance…” (our 15 plus minutes sitting quietly, and connecting with God). In case you didn’t get it, in our quiet time, is when we connect with God, and tap into His power.
In addition, Haanel says, “To become conscious of this power is to become a ‘live wire’, it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged.” This brought an image to my mind.
Imagine if you would, all the devices in your home that run on electricity. Like people, they all have a purpose, they were created for something specific. A can opener cannot play music. An electric shaver can’t illuminate a room. They all have something that they are specifically made to do, and the thing that powers them is electricity.
We, as human beings, work the same way. We are all different, and made for very specific things. Consider Mother Theresa, Michael Jordan, Abraham Lincoln, and Bill Gates. They all have specific talents; they were each created for a specific purpose.
Once the devices in your home are plugged in to the power source, BAM, they carry out what they were created to do. The can opener opens cans. The electric shaver shaves a face. The light illuminates the room, and so on.
We, in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, have our purpose, and we now know how to connect to our source of power (in our quiet time). Now that we can connect directly to Universal Mind (God), we are prepared to serve our purpose whether it’s rescuing dogs, working with the elderly, being the greatest mom, or what have you. We are directly connected to our power source, and that’s when the magic happens. Miraculous, and astounding things now happen in our lives. Things that we never thought possible, nor that we could foresee.
I thank God for his Divinity, and for allowing us, His creations access to His unlimited power. Also, I’m thankful that in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance, we are learning to plug in to Him.
