In the Bible, Hebrews 11: 1 – 2, we read that Paul said:
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.”
I have been having challenges for a long time now to receive a breakthrough regarding one of my most important and urgent goals in my DMP. I decided this week to share my challenges with the other members of our Master Mind group and what an awesome revelation when one of the members, Martin Tobias, said to me “it sound like you do not have FAITH in the ability of the person that can help you achieve your goal”.
Wow once again the mirror remains true. The thoughts that I have been creating within regarding the doubt in the ability of that person to help me succeed has been reflecting back to me. Thank you Martin.
In lesson 10 of the Master Key System Haanel wrote:
“11. The law is that Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world. This is the law by which, and through which all things come into manifestation; it is the Master Key by which you are admitted into the Secret Place of the Most High and are “given dominion over all things.” With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.”
14. In taking advantage of the wonderful possibilities opened up to us through the operation of this law, we must remember that we ourselves contribute nothing to its efficacy as the Great Teacher said: “It is not I that doeth the works, but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the work”. We must take exactly the same position; we can do nothing to assist in the manifestation, we simply comply with the law, and the All-originating Mind will bring about the result.
15. The great error of the present day is the idea that Man has to originate the intelligence whereby the Infinite can proceed to bring about a specific purpose or result. Nothing of this kind is necessary; the Universal Mind can be depended upon to find the ways and means for bringing about any necessary manifestation. We must, however, create the ideal, and this ideal should be perfect.”
So if this is true and I believe it is, what is the result of my doubt? I found the answer in the following paragraphs.
“19. If your thought is in harmony with the creative Principle of Nature, it is in tune with the Infinite Mind, and it will form the circuit, it will not return to you void; but it is possible for you to think thoughts that are not in tune with the Infinite, and when there is no polarity, the circuit is not formed. What, then, is the result? What is the result when a dynamo is generating electricity, the circuit is cut off and there is no outlet? The dynamo stops.
20. It will be exactly the same with you, if you entertain thoughts which are not in accordance with the Infinite and cannot therefore be polarized; there is no circuit, you are isolated, the thoughts cling to you, harass you, worry you, and finally bring about disease and possibly death; the physician may not diagnose the case exactly in this way, he may give it some fancy name which has been manufactured for the various ills which are the result of wrong thinking, but the cause is the same nevertheless. My desire for success is earnest but my thoughts of doubt creates in harmony and therefore can not be polarized.”
In the great classic of Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich, Hill wrote:
“FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.”
I close with the following words of Emmet Fox:
“The two supreme lessons set for this school are the lesson of Omnipresence of God, and the lesson of the power of thought.”
Today I am grateful for, the power of thought, the master mind group that I have the privilege to be part of and this amazing adventure I get to be part of daily.
