In Part 17 of the Master Key System it states, “The kind of Deity which a man, consciously or unconsciously, worships, indicates the intellectual status of the worshipper.
- Ask the Indian of God, and he will describe to you a powerful chieftain of a glorious tribe.
- Ask the Pagan of God, and he will tell you of a God of fire, a God of water, a god of this, that, and the other.
- Ask the Israelite of God, and he will tell you of the God of Moses, who conceived it expedient to rule by coercive measures; hence, the Ten Commandments. Or of Joshua, who led the Israelites into battle, confiscated property, murdered the prisoners, and laid waste to cities.
- The so-called heathen made “graven images” of their Gods, whom they were accustomed to worship, but among the most intelligent, at least, these images were but the visible fulcrums with which they were enabled to mentally concentrate on the qualities which they desired to externalize in their lives.
- We of the twenty-first century worship a God of Love in theory, but in practice we make for ourselves “graven images” of “Wealth,” “Power,” “Fashion,” “Custom” and “Conventionality.” We “fall down” before them and worship them. We concentrate on them and they are thereby externalized in our lives.
- Ancient Greek mythology and Greek culture speak about the tales of many gods and goddesses that ruled the earth and the sky many years ago. There are also many tales of fantastic creatures and epic battles. Just like the Egyptians, Greeks believed in the existence of multiple gods. Each of these deities had their own role in maintaining order and harmony across the universe..
- In John 10:34-35, Jesus quoted an Old Testament passage which said, “…You are gods. And all of you are sons of the Most High” (Psalm 82:6). When Jesus told the Jews, “you are gods,” He knew what He was talking about. He knows that God created mankind in His image for the purpose of reproducing Himself so that he could increase His family. You are no longer a slave to circumstances but a son. If you are a son, you are also an heir through God (Galatians 4:7).
It’s often interpreted gnostically to mean that we are little gods ascending up a ladder of deification, or …
To mean that God is within all things and is therefore within us. As Deepak Chopra says about this verse: “I interpreted this as “those who have knowledge of God are God.”
Master Key System for me has been the instruction manual for my thoughts and beliefs to understand our godly powers. This new knowledge has been an incredible journey to learn how to direct my godly Power to create the outcome of my life.
With the Master Key System I am able to use the tools and exercises from this System to live a happier and more fulfilling life because I am learning and applying my godly powers. Jesus tells Pharisees that it is written in the Law that “you are gods”. He is quoting from Psalm 82:6 where it says, “I said you are gods.“
This has been a lot of work. I have given up a lot of my time. It is worth my future to know the reason why “I am a god.”
What about you?
I am grateful for the Master Key System. I wish everyone I know would choose know why they are gods..
The Master Key System in Part Twenty-four provides if you have practiced each of the exercises a few minutes every day, as suggested, you will have found that you can get out of life exactly what you wish by first putting into life that which you wish, and you will probably agree with the student who said: “The thought is almost overwhelming, so vast, so available, so …
The Master Key System tells us The fruit of this knowledge is, as it were, a gift of the Gods; it is the “truth” that makes men free, not only free from every lack and limitation, but free from sorrow, worry and care. Is it not wonderful to realize that this Universal Law is no respecter of persons. That it makes no difference what your habit of thought may be, the way has been prepared.
The Master Key System tells us if you are inclined to be religious, the greatest religious teacher the world has ever known made the way so plain that all may follow. If your mental bias is toward physical science, the Universal Law will operate with mathematical certainty. If you are inclined to be philosophical, Plato or Emerson may be your teacher, but in either case, you may reach degrees of power to which it is impossible to assign any limit.
The Master Key System tells us an understanding of this principle, we believe, is the secret for which the ancient Alchemists vainly sought, because it explains how gold in the mind may be transmuted into gold in the heart and in the hand.
Ernest Holmes states we believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation, but is not absorbed by Its creation.
The Science of Mind, the Master Key System teaches us how to use the Mind Principle for Major Definite Purposes, such as helping those who are sick, impoverished, or unhappy. Each one of us should learn to become a practitioner of this mental science, a demonstrator of its Principle, a conscious user of its Power because it is how yo discover your god Power.
The Master Key System and Science of Mind believes that teaching an individual how to think, versus what to think, can change life experiences. Through the higher awareness of their own thinking, God becomes all to them that He really is. According to The Master Key System and Science of Mind, this is God’s gift to mankind.
The Master Key System and Science of Mind believes that teaching an individual how to think, versus what to think, can change all life experiences and understand why we are gods..
It is fair to say that “You are gods” based on your relationship with God [Universal Mind], [Universal Laws] [Universal Substance] and you have learned how to think, versus what to think, so you can change your life experiences as a god.
Men have generally used the word “God” to indicate this Universal, Creative Principle; but the word “God” does not convey the right meaning. Most people understand this word to mean something outside of themselves; while exactly the contrary is the fact. It is our very life. Without it we would be dead. We would cease to exist. The minute the spirit leaves the body, we are as nothing. Therefore, spirit is really, all there is of us. Spirit is the God within us.
The only activity which the spirit possesses is the power to think. Therefore, thought must be creative, because spirit is creative. This creative power is impersonal and your ability to think is your ability to control it and make use of it for the benefit of yourself and others. The Power to think is your god Power and what makes you a god.
When the truth of this statement is realized, understood, and appreciated, you will have come into possession of the Master-Key and you will have become like God.
Only those who are wise enough to understand, broad enough to weigh the evidence, firm enough to follow their own judgment, and strong enough to make the sacrifice exacted, may enter, partake, become and realize the god they are.
UNDERSTANDING THE SOURCE OF POWER
Master Key System states the exercise this week is to concentrate as nearly as possible in accordance with the method outlined in this lesson. Let there be no conscious effort or activity associated with your purpose. I am to relax completely, avoid any thought of anxiety as to results. I am to let my thought dwell upon my object, until it is completely identified with it, until I am conscious of nothing else.
* If I wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.
* If I wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.
* If I wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.
I am to always concentrate on my ideal as an already existing fact. This is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form. I am to be the god of my life.
People who master the contents of Part Seventeen of the Master Key System will become gods in their life and not mistake the symbols for the reality.
They will be interested in causes, rather than effects. They will concentrate on the realities of life and will then not be disappointed in the results. They will have used their god power.
UNDERSTANDING God POWER REQUIRES UNDERSTANDING LAWS
When you think about your god power and an understanding of YOUR SOURCE OF POWER you should also have an UNDERSTANDING SPIRITUAL, UNIVERSAL and MENTAL LAWS.
There are 7 Mental Laws?
- The Law of Substitution.
- The Law of Relaxation.
- The Law of Subconscious Activity.
- The Law of Practice.
- The Two Factors.
- What You Think Upon Grows.
- The Law of Forgiveness.
There is a whole network of interconnected Spiritual Laws that can impact on every aspect of your life because of your god power. Even better, although these laws can be used to assist in Law of Attraction work, you do not need to be working on any particular manifestation goal to benefit here.
The Twelve Spiritual Laws of the Universe each teach you something unique about well-being, happiness, and success and your god power. When you have a solid sense of these spiritual laws, you develop a clearer picture of your own place in the world and your god power.
The universal spiritual laws are:
- The Law of Divine Oneness.
- Law of Vibration.
- Law of Correspondence.
- Law of Attraction.
- Law of Inspired Action.
- Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy.
- The Law of Cause and Effect.
- The Law of Compensation.
- Law of Relativity.
- Law of Polarity.
- Law of Rhythm
- Law of Gender
YOUR GOD POWER
Master Key System Part 17 tells us that Man has “dominion over all things.” This dominion is established through Mind and the Laws of Mind and Universal Laws. It is the bases of man’s god power.
Thought is the activity which controls every principle in your life.
- Psalm 82:6 I have said, ‘You are gods; you are all sons of … “I said, `You are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.’ But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler.” This passage is saying that God has appointed men to positions of authority in which they are considered as gods among the people.
- In John 10:34-35, Jesus quoted an Old Testament passage which said, “…You are gods. And all of you are sons of the Most High” (Psalm 82:6). So, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God (Galatians 4:7). You are gods.
“You are gods. All of you are sons of the Most High” (Psalm 82:6).
Would it fair to say that “You are gods” because of your Individual Mind and its connection to the Universal Mind or the Mind of God?
YOUR METHOD OF CREATION-THE FIVE SENSES
We are accustomed to look upon the Universe with our five senses. From these experiences our conceptions originate. True conceptions are only secured by spiritual insight [thought].
Spiritual insight requires a quickening of the vibrations of your Mind. It is only secured when you mind is continuously concentrated on a given result. Your five senses do not give you god power. Without thought you have no god power.
GOD POWER-CREATION AND THE POWER OF THOUGHT
In the Master Key Experience this week we are to identify our god power by focusing on concentration. The word concentration comes from the Latin “con” – together and “centrum” – centre, and means bringing together, or, drawing to a common central point.
Concentration can also be described as the ability to discipline the mind, which is what we are working on in this program to use our god power.
Often, when we are attempting to concentrate, we find mundane thoughts enter our awareness, such as “things I must do tomorrow “or “how will things be at work tomorrow, they weren’t very pleasant today”. We might also find ourselves thinking about family and friends.
There isn’t a moment in the day when we are not thinking. Often, we are not aware of these thoughts fliting through our conscious mind. By having allowed our thoughts to have undisciplined freedom most of our lives, the task of controlling then becomes difficult.
Patience and tolerance of self will help break down the resistance we may feel from wayward thoughts. By our concentrated effort to focus our energies on one specific point, we will eventually bring them under our control through our god power.
Master Key System Part 17 tells me I should have Continuous Concentration on a particular result I want to create. This means an even, unbroken flow of thought on a particular result I want. I should be so interested in my thought, so engrossed in my subject, as to be conscious of nothing else.
Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.
Continuous Concentration causes man’s mind becomes a magnet to the result thought about. Man becomes a god because of his god power. The desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own.
SUBCONSCIOUS MIND POWER
Results are largely subconscious. Man has to have a conscious desire to create what he wants. His subconscious desire arouses the latent faculties of his mind. And difficult problems seem to solve themselves because of man’s god power.
The subconscious mind may be aroused and brought into action in any direction and made to serve us for any purpose by Continuous Concentration.
- The practice of concentration requires the control of the physical, mental, and physical being. All modes of consciousness whether physical, mental, or physical, must be under control. Spiritual Truth is therefore the controlling factor.
Continuous Concentration will enable you to grow out of limited attainment and reach a point where you will be able to translate modes of thought into character and consciousness and an exercise of your god power.
Continuous Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical results. The average person has no conception of the meaning of Continuous Concentration.
There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”.
People fail to understand that they cannot have a certain result one without Continuous Concentration. That they must first find the “kingdom” [mind][their god poweer] before they can have the “things added [result].”
BARRIERS TO CREATIVE MENTAL ATTAINMENT
Mental weakness is the only barrier to mental attainment and the exercise of your god power. Ease and perfection are gained by repetition.
So, with all things. Men center their minds on the Problems of Life, and the result is Life solutions. Generally, men do not have Continuous Concentration on what they truly want.
Most men do not realize that all mental discovery and attainment are the result of Desire plus Continuous Concentration on exercising their god power.
DESIRE PLUS CONCENTRATION
Desire is the strongest mode of action for exercising your god power.
The more persistent the desire, the more authoritative the result. Desire added to Continuous Concentration will wrench any secret from nature. The intensity of one moment’s earnest concentration and the intense longing to become and to attain may take you further than years of slow normal and forced effort.
With Continuous Concentration and Desire, you will come into a realization of creating whatever you desire [the joy of overcoming] because you are exercising your god power.
The spirit of initiative and originality is developed through persistence and continuity of mental effort. The mental element in every pursuit is dominant as the controlling factor, and desire is the predominating force; all relations are the externalization of desire.
The principal necessity is the strengthening of your mind so that it rises superior to the distractions and wayward impulses of instinctive life and thus successfully overcomes in the conflict between the higher and lower self.
MAN – THE STICK PERSON
All men are dynamos, but the man [dynamo] of himself is nothing. The mind must work the dynamo [man].
Then man [dynamo] is useful and its energy can be definitely concentrated on a particular result.
- The Mind is an Engine whose power is undreamed.
- Thought is an omni-working Power. It is the Ruler and Creator of all forms and all events occurring in form.
Physical energy is nothing in comparison with the omnipotence of thought, because thought enables man to harness all other natural power.
Vibration is the action of thought. It is vibration which reaches out and attracts the material necessary to construct and build the desired result. There is nothing mysterious concerning the Power of Thought.
- Concentration simply implies that consciousness can be focalized to the point where it becomes identified with the object of its desire.
- Food absorbed is the essence of the body. Mind absorbs the thought of its attention. It gives it life and being.
If you concentrate on some matter of importance, your intuitive power will be set in operation, and help will come in the nature of information which will lead to success.
Intuition the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. It arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory. Intuition often solves problems that are beyond the grasp of the reasoning power. Intuition often comes with a suddenness that is startling. It reveals the truth for which we are searching, so directly that it seems to come from a higher god power.
Intuition can be cultivated and developed. In order to do this, it must be recognized and appreciated. If the intuitive is given a royal welcome when it comes, it will come again. The more cordial the welcome the more frequent Intuition will become, but if Intuition is ignored or neglected it will make its visits few and far apart.
INTUITION AND SILENCE
Intuition: is the power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference. b : immediate apprehension or cognition. c : knowledge or conviction gained by intuition. 2 : quick and ready insight. usually comes in the Silence.
It is direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process; immediate apprehension. Great minds seek solitude frequently. It is here that all the larger problems of life are worked out. Fundamentally the subconscious is omnipotent. There is no limit to the things that can be done when your subconscious is given the desire and power to act.
- Your degree of success is determined by the nature of your desire.
- If the nature of your desire is in harmony with Natural Law or the Universal Mind, it will gradually emancipate the mind and give you invincible courage.
Every obstacle conquered, every victory gained, will give you more faith in your Subconscious Intuition power, and you will have greater ability to manifest what you want.
Your Subconscious Intuition strength is determined by your mental attitude. If this attitude is one of success, and is permanently held with an unswerving purpose, you will attract to you from the invisible domain the things you silently demand through your god power.
Continuous Concentration on Definite Purpose
By keeping Continuous Concentration on your Definite Major Purpose the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form.
A Definite Major Purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose. Your Subconscious Mind will create what you desire if you are pursuing the right thing:
- You may be pursuing the symbols of power, instead of power itself.
- You may be pursuing fame instead of honor, riches instead of wealth, position instead of servitude.
- In either event you will find that they turn to ashes just as you overtake them if you fail to have Continuous Concentration.
CREATING AND RETAINING WEALTH
The Master Key System tell us that premature wealth or position cannot be retained when it has not been earned.
We get only what we give, and those who try to get without giving always find that the Law of Compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium.
The race has usually been for money and other mere symbols of power, but with an understanding of the true source of power, we can afford to ignore the symbols of wealth.
The man with a large bank account finds it unnecessary to load his pockets down with gold. So, with the man who has found the true source of power–his god power. He is no longer interested in its shams or pretentions.
Thought ordinarily leads outwardly for results, but it can be turned within where it will take hold of the ides in this article.
When you get to the heart of your god power, the Laws of Mind, and the Universal Laws it is comparatively easy to understand and command them. This is because the Spirit of a thing is the thing itself, the vital part of it, the real substance. The form is simply the outward manifestation of the spiritual activity within.
During week 17, I also spent a lot of time examining my DMP, my thoughts, motives, the degree of my successes, and observing the world around me.
My observations on the Franklin makeover this week were on ‘Kindness” and being “Discipline” and that was easy to spot. Being a person who greets the natural world around me daily, how can one not see when Discipline has been put in place?
- Specialized Knowledge
- Taking Initiative
- Pleasing Personality
- See God in Others
What IS Kindness?
I found this definition for the word kindness: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Synonyms: kindliness, kind-heartedness, warm-heartedness, tender-heartedness, goodwill, affectionateness, affection, warmth, gentleness, tenderness, concern, care. Kindness is…Amazing!
Kindness opportunities to be kind can be found anywhere and anytime. Even when we are alone, we can be kind to ourselves. And when we find ourselves in emotional places where we’d rather not be, we can feel better by performing random acts of kindness that will lift our spirits.
It is contagious. When someone is kind to us, we feel good about ourselves, and that prompts us to share that feeling with others.
Scroll IV-You are Natures Greatest Miracle.
During week 17, I also spent a lot of time Og Mandino’s Scroll IV-You are Natures Greatest Miracle.
I am nature’s greatest miracle.
“Since the beginning of time never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me.
Out of the 7 billion people on the planet, there are none like you. Your mind, your heart, your spirit, your body. They are only yours and no one else shares them. They did not exist before you and they will never again exist after you.
Scroll IV – “You are nature’s greatest miracle” because you are a god.
Og Mandino says in his book:
“Vain attempts to imitate others no longer will I make. Instead will I place my uniqueness on display in the market place. I will proclaim it, yea, I will sell it. I will begin now to accent my differences; hide my similarities. So too will I apply this principle to the goods I sell.
I am a unique creature of nature.
I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable. I am the end product of thousands of years of evolution; therefore, I am better equipped in both mind and body than all the emperors and wise men who preceded me.
But my skills, my mind, my heart, and my body will stagnate, rot, and die lest I put them to good use. I have unlimited potential. Only a small portion of my brain do I employ; only a paltry amount of my muscles do I flex. A hundredfold or more can I increase my accomplishments of yesterday and this I will do, beginning today.
What else can this mean other than that you are a god? You are Natures Greatest Miracle!
COMPLETED WEEK 17 MKE EXERCISE
I concentrated as nearly as possible in accordance with the method outlined in Part 17. I wished to eliminate lack and to concentrate on abundance.
I was to make no conscious effort or activity associated with my abundance purpose through my god power. I was to relax completely. I avoid any thought of anxiety as to my results.
I let my thoughts dwell upon my abundance until I was completely identified with it. I did this until I was conscious of nothing else. I concentrated on my abundance purpose as an already existing fact. This was the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about my abundance, and which eventually manifested in form in my reality.
