AN EARTHQUAKE? Well let’s get ready to SHAKE IT UP!
This week’s Master Key Lesson was much about focus.
Haanel explains in 6.15, “Every thought sets the brain cells in action; at first the substance upon which the thought is directed fails to respond, but if the thought is sufficiently refined and concentrated, the substance finally yields and expresses perfectly.”
“…if the thought is sufficiently refined and concentrated…”
8 words. Doesn’t seem like it would be difficult, or take much time, right? Let’s look a little closer.
sufficiently – enough to meet the needs of a situation or a proposed end
refined – remove impurities or unwanted elements from (a substance)
concentrated – wholly directed to one thing; intense
So, I have an idea or a thought. It sets the brain cells in action. Thinking of it once doens’t make it happen. So I must refine my thought, meaning remove all impurities and unwanted elements from this idea. No doubts allowed. No fluff. Then, it must be concentrated, meaning I am wholly directed to this idea.
The course, as it is progressing, has done a great job of guiding us in how to do this day to day, for the lives that we are creating. We are already spending much time each day thinking of the reality we are creating, and living in it as if it’s our now.
For myself, I will continue to refine. There are still impurities I must rid from my ideal. I will also continue to concentrate and weed out distractions.
I’ve officially got my shapes with my goals and PPNs around the house and that helps so much. Next thing on my list today, after a long run, is finishing my dream board and taking pictures of it and printing it out.
These are all great activities to be able to focus on my dream, allow it to create a heat inside me and then radiate, allowing me to exude love and light and give hope. Every day I care less what others think about my goals, because that is attention I am now giving to building my burning desire and living in that future reality with my new best friend, my future self! I’m learning how the Universe operates and the Master Key System is teaching me how to harness it for my benefit and the benefit of others.
There is still so much to do, but a second definition of refine is to improve (something) by making small changes, and this I am also doing every week and every day.
That’s my highlight for this week. All my best to all you out there who are making it happen! And to those of you who aren’t, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
