Greetings follow travelers.
Truth vs. Perception
While the closing instructions for the “sit” were to “concentrate on Truth,” as a concept, “Truth” was not the issue…not why this effort took so long to complete. Trust me, I’ll get this resolved, but my meandering may make your head swim!
Truth, Reason, Objectivity…these are concepts and ideas I pursue with all my being. As such, and with the approach of “tax season,” I decided to (carefully) venture into the realm or truth vs. perception (of truth).
Have any of you looked into the lie of the 16th Amendment?
I could make you so sick to your stomach you would vote your elected officials, those career do-nothings, out of office! But we’ll come back to that….
As a species, we have “evolved” to the point where we elect and appoint often the least-qualified people to determine our future. We’ve been conditioned to think incorrectly, and for some, seldom ever if that – ergo, Haanel’s invitation to you, to me, to everyone to THINK!
Am I negative? Cynical? Or, am I being objective, and choosing to stand apart from the ‘norms’ imposed upon myself and others…and THINK?
One of the great, and unanticipated side benefit of the #MasterKeyExperience is the quest for objective truth, both for yourself, for those you/we mastermind with, and for your broader community…your world at large.
In Haanel’s 21:28, in his instruction, he urges us to “[t]ry to comprehend the Omnipotence itself is absolute silence.”
Have you thought about this?
Really thought this through?
Consider this – assuming you were raised in a “western” religious ideology, in Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
If this is within your particular belief system, you’re probably okay with this. I’m not here to argue one way or another, or try to convince you of anything. Your beliefs – or lack thereof – aren’t going to alter my world.
Remember above: Truth? Reason? Objectivity? Let’s explore how this relates to what Haanel is saying:
- For “God to have “created the heavens and earth,” he would have to exist outside of that existence He created.
- Prior to that ‘creation moment’ would have been a void, an emptiness, a nothing …from which anything could be created.
- In that void, it’s implied there was no light. Confirmed in Genesis 1:3, “Let there be light.”
- There was only void. Light is energy. Sound is also energy. There was neither sound nor light.
- Thought is energy. Thought creates all else that follows. Everything originates with a thought, “…and what we think is created and produced in the objective world.” Haanel, 21-3)
- “Realize that the Silence offers and ever-available and almost unlimited opportunity for awakening the highest conception of Truth.” Haanel, 21:28
For something, a/your God (perhaps) to exist outside of emptiness, and from emptiness create anything, well that’s some pretty powerful, amazing stuff to think through…or a really well-crafted “story’ ….which has managed to remain intact for over 4,000 years!
For me, the matter’s solved, for all time. If you’ve read my Press Release, I mentioned my near death experience. In that experience I could only sense a void, for no other word fit the experience. No bright light, No tunnel. Just me and my Creator – when He decided to be present. Later, as I recovered for 21 days in ICU, I recalled another training I had, and from that I learned “when you get to nothing, anything is possible.” There’s more, but not for this forum….
I got it!
I got the power of Creation!
In your silence, your “sit,” hides Truth, your truth, awaiting discovery.
What government’s become:
The 30-day mental diet has been excruciating. I am highly sought after for my “opinion,” and as such, must stay current to the world we live in. Excruciating may be a mild word…!
Why is all this important? Remember from prior postings, I am craft a very unique story to describe a very powerful experience: the #MasterKeyExperience! #TheresNotingLikeIT!
It is the “thinking” most of us don’t do, the seeking of silence and solitude necessary to find the “truth” of our (your) world. All this falls under the
Law of Practice
We practice those things we think will be of benefit to ourselves, often without conscious consideration of separating and distinguishing short-term vs long-term ramifications. “The ability to eliminate imperfect conditions depends upon mental action….” (Haanel, 21:5)
Law of Substitution, DMP, Press Release
“Large ideas have a tendency to eliminate all smaller ideas so that it is well to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies. (Haanel, 21:6)
Law of Substitution, & Law of Practice linked to..
30-day Mental Diet. Haanel links 21:13-14 together superbly. When we “change the [our] mental attitude,” we “create new pictures.” The bigger the picture, the bigger the “magnet” (Haanel 21:12), linked to positive emotional reinforcement, “like attracts like” [in the Universe], continuing “to hold the picture in the mind until results are obtained;” “they are the feeling which combines with thought and creates the irresistible magnetic power which draws the things required to you.” (Haanel, 21:16)
Now let me link some of this last section back to the opening. My past experiences with one overly abusive non-government “agency” which pretends to act as a government “agency” cause me to link together some downright serious emotions to my efforts to thwart the (I)diots (R)resenting (S)tan – one of the more common, and well-earned nicknames. Because the emotional outcomes could have been so severe should I have lost, I trusted in my abilities and visualized the ‘pain’ which would ensue should I not be successful.
Without going into all the details I won. I convinced the/their “judge” in their Court, under their “rules” that I was correct. The boys & girls making my life a living hell were “Ordered” to refund my money. (To this day, I’ve not seen one dime!) That’s right! Their rules, their Court, their Judge, and these @#%%&#$^$@^ people thumbed their nose at their own Judge.
Now…don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind paying taxes – those which are legal and lawful. Much of what your beliefs tell your (or fear does) is “lawful” is not. You will have to think, research, “mastermind,” and be willing to do what you’ve not done for most off your life. I choose truth. I choose life.
“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man,
nor ask another man to live for mine.” –Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
A few years ago, I had a realignment of my thinking processes. After years of fighting the boys & girls above-noted, I attended a workshop and met an African-American gentleman who rose from a difficult childhood and now earns roughly $300,ooo per month. His dream, his vision was so profound, his emotions so deeply encapsulated within the vision the success was the only reality acceptable.
A couple of years pass. I learn of another African-American who also rose from difficult circumstances. Since I lack permission to use his name herein, if you’ve heard the audio, or seen him live was earning about $800,000 every 17 days.
I was floored!
I was captivated. He had my attention!
What’s more, he made a declaration that “some day I’m gonna pay $1,000,000 in taxes!”
It suddenly dawned on me what kind of person I would have to become, what kind of leader, investor, coach, trainer, mentor – what ALL I would have to achieve just to hit such goals….but not alone.
You can’t reach the pinnacle of success unless you take others along for the ride!
…the challenge is what it has been for roughly the last 100 years, if not the last 4,000+ years. In 21:23-26 – and the primary reason I struggled so much with this section…we’re not supposed to give opinions. Inherent in such suppositions is: We’re not supposed to form opinions, therefore have nothing to react to, or be limited by (or because of).
My personal challenge is the political aspects of what Haanel describes in 23-26. It’s unavoidable and unmistakeable how “[t}he issue of the old regain and the new, the crux of the social problem is entirely a question of conviction in the minds of the people as to the nature of the Universe.” (emphasis mine)
The truth I saw was the purity of form manifest in Haanel’s declaration “the Divine Mind is the Universal Mind.” It “makes no exceptions to favor any individuals.”
The “truth” you must see is…
All you have to do is want it bad enough, believe in it strong enough, be willing and committed strong enough, and honor those wants beliefs, and commitment such that those dreams become your new reality!
