The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind. “Affirmations”

“You have the incredible potential to be, do, and receive whatever you desire, imagine, and truly believe. Unfortunately, however, only a small number of people achieve their full human potential, because they fail to recognize and harness the infinite power of the subconscious mind – the divinity within them and around them.”

“The secret to success is no secret. It has been in practice for thousands of years. The most successful people throughout history are not those who merely accept the reality presented to them but those who imagine a better reality and believe in it so deeply that they are actually able to create a new reality – to change the state of being around them.”

Joseph Murphy

“Cleanse Your Mind”

Divine love fills my soul. Divine right action is mine. Divine harmony governs my life. Divine joy fills my soul. I am divinely guided in all ways. I am illumined from On High. I know and believe that I will receive a measure of life, love, truth, and beauty that transcends my boldest dreams. I know that universal love and generosity embrace me.

Commentary: Modern life is hectic and cluttered with meaningless distractions and concerns. When you begin to feel overwhelmed by life’s demands, take some time to quiet your mind and remind yourself that you were created to be joyous.

The Master Key System

Introduction

Nature compels us all to move through life. We could not remain stationary however much we wished. Every right-thinking person wants not merely to move through life like a sound-producing, perambulating plant, but to develop – to improve – and to continue the development mentally to the close of physical life.

This development can occur only through the improvement of the quality of individual thought and the ideals, actions, and conditions that arise as a consequence. Hence a study of the creative processes of thought and how to apply them is of supreme importance to each one of us. This knowledge is the means whereby the evolution of human life on earth may be hastened and uplifted in the process.

Humanity ardently seeks “The Truth” and explores every avenue to it. In this process, it has produced a special literature, which ranges the whole gamut of thought from the trivial to the sublime – up from Divination, through all the Philosophies, to the final lofty Truth of “The Master Key”.

The “Master Key” is here given to the world as a means of tapping the great Cosmic Intelligence and attracting from it that which corresponds to the ambitions, and aspirations of each reader.

Every thing and institution we see around us, created by human agency, had first to exist as a thought in some human mind. Thought therefore is constructive. Human thought is the spiritual power of the cosmos operating through its creature man. “The Master Key” instructs the reader how to use that power and use it both constructively and creatively. The things and conditions we desire to become realities we must first create in thought. “The Master Key” explains and guides the process.

“The Master Key” teaching has been published in the form of a Correspondence Course of 24 lessons, delivered to students one per week for 24 weeks. The reader is warned not to attempt to read the book like a novel, but to treat it as a course of study and conscientiously to imbibe the meaning of each part – reading and re-reading one part only per week before proceeding to the next. Otherwise, the later parts will tend to be misunderstood and the reader’s time and money will be wasted.

Used as thus instructed, “The Master Key” will make the reader a greater, better personality, and equipped with a new power to achieve any worthy personal purpose and a new ability to enjoy life’s beauty and wonder.

The Universal Glue

Since the entire gaseous contents of alveoli are not exhausted at each breath (when we are resting, only a tenth of the air is expelled), the air that remains keeps the alveolar sacs inflated and prevents them from collapsing. So, air always resides within us and is as much a part of our bodies as any tissue or organ. We are a part of the air, which in turn is a part of all green plants and every other breathing creature.

After sharing space in a room with others, try a very simplified thought exercise. If you multiply the volume of air (in liters) in the room by Avogadro’s constant (the number of atoms in one mole of substance: 6.022 times (10 to the power of 23), you will get an estimate of the number of atoms in the air in that room. (Assume the air is always mixed completely.) Then divide the number of atoms in the air by volume of air inhaled times the number of breaths per minute times the time spent in the room times the rate at which oxygen and carbon dioxide diffuse across lung cell membranes. Even the crudest calculation reveals that each of us very quickly absorbs atoms into our bodies that were once an integral part of everyone else in the room, and vice versa.

The eminent Harvard astronomer Harlow Shapley once performed another thought exercise about air. He pointed out that while 99 % of the air we breathe is highly active oxygen and mildly reactive nitrogen, about 1% is made up of argon, an inert gas. Because it is inert, it is breathed in and out without becoming a part of our bodies or entering into metabolic transformations. Shapley calculated that each breath contains about 30,000,000,000,000,000,000, or 3.0 times (10 to the power of 19), atoms of argon plus quintillions of molecules of carbon dioxide. Suppose you exhale a single breath and follow those argon atoms. Within minutes, they have diffused through the air far beyond the spot where they were released, traveling into the neighborhood. After a year, those atoms have been mixed up in the atmosphere and spread around the planet in such a way that each breath you take includes at least fifteen atoms of argon released in that one breath a year earlier! All people over the age of 20 have taken at least 100 million breaths and have inhaled argon atoms that were emitted in the first breath of every child born in the world a year before!

According to Shapley: “Your next breath will contain more than 400,000 of the argon atoms that Gandhi breathed in his long life. Argon atoms are here from the conversations at the Last Supper, from the arguments of diplomats at Yalta, and from the recitations of the classic poets. We have argon from the sighs and pledges of ancient lovers, from the battle cries at Waterloo, even from last year’s argonic output by the writer of these lines, who personally has had already more than 300 million breathing experiences.”

Air exits your nose to go right up your neighbor’s nose. In everyday life, we absorb atoms from the air that were once a part of birds and trees and snakes and worms because all aerobic forms of life share that same air (aquatic life also exchanges gases that dissolve back and forth at the interface between air and water).

Air is not a vacuum or empty space – it is a physical substance that embeds within us all and perfuses through us. It is constantly changing as life and geophysical forces add and subtract constituents to the composition of air, and yet over vast stretches of time the basic composition of air has remained in dynamic equilibrium. The longer each of us lives, the greater the likelihood that we will absorb atoms that were once part of Joan of Arc and Jesus Christ, of Neanderthal people and woolly mammoths. As we have breathed in our forebears, so our grandchildren and their grandchildren will take us in with their breath. We are bound up inseparably with the past and the future by the spirit we share.

Every breath is a sacrament, an affirmation of our connection with all other living things, a renewal of our link with our ancestors, and a contribution to generations yet to come. Our breath is a part of life’s breath, the ocean of air that envelopes Earth. Unique in the solar system, the air is both the creator and the creation of life itself.

SERENITY

CALMNESS of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, steadfast, serene.

The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him.

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Even the ordinary trader will find his business prosperity increase as he develops a greater self-control and equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a man whose demeanour is strongly equable.

The strong, calm man is always loved and revered. He is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a storm. “Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered, balanced life?” It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm.

That exquisite poise of character, which we call serenity is the last lesson of culture, the fruitage of the soul. It is precious as wisdom, more to be desired than gold—yea, than even fine gold.

How insignificant mere money-seeking looks in comparison with a serene life—a life that dwells in the ocean of Truth, beneath the waves, beyond the reach of tempests, in the Eternal Calm.

How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood!

It is a question whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control.

How few people we meet in life who are well balanced, who have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!

Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him.

Tempest-tossed souls, wherever ye may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming.

Keep your hand firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleep: wake Him. Self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery; Calmness is power. Say unto your heart, “Peace, be still!”

The Man in The Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for life

And the world makes you king for a day

Just go to the mirror and look at yourself

And see what that man has to say


For it isn’t your father or mother or wife

Whose judgment upon you pass

The fellow whose verdict counts most in life

Is the man staring back from the glass


Some people might think you’re a straight shootin chum

And call you a wonderful guy

But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look him straight in the eye


He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest

For he’s with you clear to the end

And you’ve passed your most dangerous test

If the guy in the glass is your friend


You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

And get pats on the back as you pass

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the man in the glass

FAITH

Declaration of Faith

Have Faith in yourself; Faith in the Infinite.

Faith is the “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought.

Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!

Faith is the basis of all “miracles”, and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!

Faith is the only known antidote for failure.

Faith is the element, the chemical, which when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.

Faith is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.

Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.

The Power of Your Thought

Riches begin in the form of thoughts!

The amount is limited only by the person in whose mind the thought is put into motion. Faith removes limitations!

Remember this when you are ready to bargain with life for whatever it is that you ask…

Inspiration for Success

If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.

For out in the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will……

It’s All in the State of Mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.

You’ve got to think High to rise.

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger of faster man

But soon or late the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.

WINNER

There are not enough definitions of what a Winner is.

We get so wrapped up in the typical ones that the more subtle ones go unnoticed.

It is not always the person that gets the focus, the attention, or the accolades. It may take a little thought to see them, but they are right there, all around us, competing every single day, maybe even every single minute. We may not see what they are competing against, but they do.

And these amazing people, these Winners, focus on these challenges and they smash them out of their way. They do things that we should be in awe of, but we never pay attention.

And the most amazing thing is that they do not care what we think. They do not care if we notice. They do not care if they are ever recognized for what they do. Because they have transcended our narrow definition of a Winner and created their own.

And that is what a Winner really is.
