Well….It is with a sad and exciting feeling I am writing this next to last blog as our journey in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance by Mark and Davine Januszewski is coming to an end. For 26 weeks we have been spending Sunday Afternoon’s @ 4pm EST with Mark J and his ladies on their weekly webcast. And this Sunday will be our last webcast. 🙁
Let me start by taking some points made on Part Twenty-Four and the final part in Charles Haanel’s “The Master Key System.”
- It is evident, therefore, that we cannot depend upon the evidence of the senses for our information concerning the realities of things; if we did we should believe that the sun moved, that the world was flat instead of round, that the stars were bits of light instead of vast suns.
- The whole range then of the theory and practice of any system of metaphysics consists in knowing the Truth concerning yourself and the world in which you live.
- When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking, you will have come to know “The Truth which shall make you free”
- Your real work consists in convincing yourself of the truth of these statements.
- As all conditions are thought creations and therefore entirely mental, disease and lack are simply mental conditions in which the person fails to perceive the truth; as soon as the error is removed, the condition is removed.
- The method of removing this error is to go into the Silence and know the Truth; as all mind is one mind, you can do this for yourself or anyone else. If you have learned to form mental images of the conditions desired, this will be the easiest and quickest way to secure results; if not, results can be accomplished by argument, by the process of convincing yourself absolutely of the truth of your statement.
- Remember, and this is one of the most difficult as well as most wonderful statements to grasp……remember that no matter what the difficulty is, no matter where it is, no matter who is affected, you have no patient but yourself; you have nothing to do but to convince yourself of the truth which you desire to see manifested.
- All thought is a form of energy, a rate of vibration, but a thought of the Truth is the highest rate of vibration known and consequently destroys every form of error in exactly the same way that light destroys darkness; no form of error can exist when the “Truth” appears, so that your entire mental work consists in coming into an understanding of the “Truth.” This will enable you to overcome every form of lack, limitation or disease of any kind.
So….let me try to sum up in as few words as possible what is being said above and my take on the book as a whole. I believe Haanel’s book can be beneficial to anyone regardless of their religion. As for me, I have read his book as a Christian and I have tested what he has said with what it says in the Bible. I have not found anything that does not line up with what Jesus taught us.
My interpretation of his book is: Everything we need to bring us happiness, success and enjoyment of our limited time on this earth as humans is WITHIN us! As Haanel explained early in his book the spirit within us is one with God’s Spirit. We are a living being with a body, mind and spirit. When we accept God’s plan for our life, which is through Jesus, we are given the power that Jesus possesses! Matthew 14:13 – Jesus say, “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
OK….stay with me here. Haanel said earlier in his book that if we have God’s Spirit within us then we have His power within us! We have some of His same qualities! He is perfect in every way! That’s the spirit we have in us, but don’t misunderstand, we are not God. We are His Creation!!! Haanel’s description of the only difference between us and God is, “we are like a drop in the oceans, but God is the ocean! OK….I know some are thinking the ocean is limited and God is not. But think about how long it would take to remove one drop of water from the oceans (that’s us) and how long would it take to remove every drop from the oceans, one drop at a time! (that is God). In our human nature we have no way to understand how big is “unlimited”? If we only had a tiny part of God’s Spirit within us, then wouldn’t it make sense “that power” could provide us with all the success and happiness we want while on this earth? (Provided our actions line up with His word.)
What Haanel is teaching is: We are living the life we have chosen. We have the power within us to succeed at anything we want, whether it relates to family, business or social. We have the power within us to change anything that does not line up with the life Jesus said we can live! I can see that and I have witnessed it. But the one thing I don’t completely understand, as I have mentioned in past blogs, is Haanel’s statement above: every form of disease, sickness, lack and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking.
I believe in the super natural physical healing of humans by the power of God. But I have witnessed some who have not been healed. But why would Jesus say that if it were not true? Haanel says we can do this during our silence by forming a mental image of the healthy person. I believe I have more to learn by continuing to study and practice what I have learned from Haanel and incorporating this into my time of prayer and studying of the Bible. This is a progression and it doesn’t end because the Master Key Mastermind Alliance course is ending. No….I believe this is just the beginning of me understanding how to incorporate Biblical principles into my life to bring me and those around me into enjoying the greatest moments which exist in life!
This is my last blog as it relates to Charles Haanel’s Master Key System. But next week will be my last blog about my journey over the last 26 weeks with Mark J and the MKMMA course in which I have been participating. At that time I will summarize how this journey has changed my life. And what my plans are in continuing to blog content which can help others improve their lives!!
And it is my hope that someday our paths will cross and I will meet you on the beaches of the world!!
