Do you desire more power? Health, happiness, or wealth?
In the introduction to the first lesson of The Master Key System, Charles Haanel says that in order to have these things, we need consciousness.
I understand his words easily enough and just by reading them, I become ‘conscious’. Yet I know it’s much deeper than that. He says I must live the spirit of these things until they become mine by right. I can see that takes time.
If I ponder my ‘health consciousness’, is there a seed of worry about illness? Does the thinnest of clouds obscure the sunlight of happiness? Is there a nagging fear of lack, or firm belief in abundant supply?
To be honest, there is still work to do.
Haanel reiterates again and again, in every way imaginable, that ‘the world without is a reflection of the world within’.
“Every thought, therefore, is a cause, and every condition an effect. For this reason, it is absolutely essential that you control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions.”
That I can use thought to affect my conditions is at the same time a gift, a challenge, and an enormous responsibility.
In this second journey with the Master Key Experience, I continue to work bit by bit to improve my thoughts and deepen my consciousness concerning the things I desire in my ideal life.
