WeeK 7 – Open the Floodgates of Power!
This is the time when things are starting shake up. I am not the person I was 7 weeks ago. I really don’t know myself anymore. I am a person who is motivated, focused, enthusiastic, compassionate and happy. I love life! I look in the mirror and see “same old me”, but….. its the “same me” without the OLD BLUEPRINT!
This week MKS is very powerful and I have many things highlighted in my notes. I noticed that the word “power” was used a lot throughout this chapter. So I will quote a few of my favorites…
11. If you can conscientiously follow these directions, you will develop Faith, the kind of Faith that is the “Substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”; you will develop confidence, the kind of confidence that leads to endurance and courage; you will develop the power of concentration which will enable you to exclude all thoughts except the ones which are associated with your purpose.
15. Think of it! You have over five million of these mental workers, ready and in active use; brain cells they are called. Besides this, there is another reserve force of at least an equal number, ready to be called into action at the slightest need. Your power to think, then, is almost unlimited, and this means that your power to create the kind of material which is necessary to build for yourself any kind of environment which you desire is practically unlimited.
25. If the law operates perfectly to bring about poverty, lack and every form of limitation for those who are continually entertaining thoughts of lack and fear, it will operate with the same certainty to bring about conditions of abundance and opulence for those who entertain thoughts of courage and power.
It all comes down to the fact that power comes from concentration of thought on a definite purpose! And the more powerful the thought, the greater the manifestation of that thought.
I will share a personal story here… My father was an electrical engineer. He was a thinker and inventor. He had several patents in his career and worked on lots of big steel mill projects. In his retirement he had grand ideas and inventions that never came out of the prototype stage. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Dementia a few years ago and had to go to long term care. When we cleaned out his home there where so many plans, drawings and inventions that had never come “off the paper”. In his library I had found Think and Grow Rich among *thousands* of other books. He valued intellectual property so much! He had the power to create but just not the focus. Those thousands of books had him chasing after all the things “without”. This week reading the story of Tesla was bitter sweet as he worked so diligently from “within”.
I love you all, and thank you for reading! Find your inner focus and find the power and genius within! ~ Catherine
