Thought is the only Reality.
Isaiah 37:31b (CLV)
….the remnant finds root downward, and yields fruit upward,
I am finding that the Law of Duel Thought and the Law of Growth; comes into Huge, play here; in week 14.
The Law of Thought says that we can not think about 2 things at the same time.
I have found that by replacing the negative thoughts with positive ones…..thereby giving NO ATTENTION to the negative.. Only the positive thoughts will manifest and grow. Jesus, the Master Teacher said, “Resist not evil”~meaning turn from it and think about something else.
The Law of Growth, tells us ~ whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.
Haanel shares with us….that thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore endowed with creative power. This does not mean that some thought is creative, but that all thought is creative. This same principle can be brought into operation in a negative way, through the process of denial.
It follows that if you deny unsatisfactory conditions, you are withdrawing the creative power of your thought from these conditions. You are cutting them away at the root. You are sapping their vitality.
#25 Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought
26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.
I am learning to keep the door shut to thoughts that do not serve my Definite Major Purpose.
We had some fun, homework the past couple of weeks. We were given a list of movies; in which we were encouraged to look for the 4 tiny habits; Definite Major Purpose, Positive Mental Habit, Plan of Action, and a Master Mind Alliance.
I learned what Persistence really is; while watching the Movie; Door to Door. Door to Door is an incredible story of Bill Porter; a door to door salesmen; who overcame all odds to become Salesmen of the Year; just like his father. Born with cerebral palsy; a disease that causes a person to have problems moving and speaking.
His Definite Major Purpose was to become a door to door salesmen with the Watkins Company; and would not take no for an answer. He asked for the worst route, and time to complete his mission; and was given a chance to overcome all odds. With his positive mental attitude and a plan of action; Bill could laugh at his disabilities, and even used them to his advantage. He took everything thrown at him; in stride.
Unable to tie his own shoes or his tie; with Persistence and Patients; from himself a group of people that could help him; while keeping their spirits up. That’s where i saw his Master Minding.
We can not do this journey alone.
Peace is Yours!
