Week 11 | Love’s Gaze

The Watchman at the Gate neither slumbers nor sleeps. But the individual, living in a world of negative thought, is not conscious of this inner eye. He may occasionally have flashes of intuition or illumination, then falls back into a world of chaos. Death is but the natural process whereby all material forms are thrown into the crucible for reproduction in fresh diversity. Be undisturbed by a situation, and it will fall away of its own weight.

First of all, let me thank each and every one of you who took time to read my blog. The exercises and assignments in the MKMMA have become a progression, baby steps, toward overcoming years of negative programming that have created the old blueprint in my subconscious. As I persistently read, observe, and study, I consider all of the exercises in the MKMMA as keeping a promise to myself.  This promise leads directly to the positive outcome I want to take from this valuable experience of how my thoughts and actions are in harmony with my Definite Major Purpose now and the secret door to success.

How evident it has become of how we are “programmed” through the negativity thrust upon us from all angles. Media, government, Madison Avenue, and many other “influencers” rely upon the most potent of motivators to habitually move us to certain actions of our deepest FEAR! Other than perhaps situations where we are protecting the safety of others and ourselves, I can think of little benefit that fear has for us.

Drawing on the lessons it is important to remember that I control the manner in which thoughts remain in my mind and thus controlling how they will effect me in my actions. My conscious mind is the sentry at the gate and guards against thoughts that used to corrupt my blueprint.

 The subconscious mind draws just and accurate inferences from premises furnished from outside sources. Where the premise is true, the subconscious mind reaches a faultless conclusion, but, where the premise or suggestion is an error, the whole structure falls. The subconscious mind does not engage in the process of proving. It relies upon the conscious mind, “the watchman at the gate,” to guard it from mistaken impressions.

As the eye seeks and receives satisfaction from colors complementary to those which are given, so does need, want and desire, in the largest sense, induce, guide and determine action. It is our privilege to become conscious of the principle and act in accordance with it.

We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact. We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and eliminating all consideration of conditions or limitation and are planting a seed which, if left undisturbed, will finally germinate into external fruition.

You ask in what does the creative power of thought consist? It consists in creating ideas, and these in turn objectify themselves by appropriating, inventing, observing, discerning, discovering, analyzing, ruling, governing, combining, and applying matter and force. It can do this because it is an intelligent creative power. The subconscious being creative and one with our divine source will at once create the freedom suggested.

The fruit of this thought is, as it were, a gift of the gods, but a gift which few as yet realize, appreciate, or understand. The recognition of the marvelous power which is possessed by the mind under proper conditions and the fact that this power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of every human problem is of transcendental importance.

Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be. It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life. ~ Haanel
