The last couple weeks have been challenging. I was putting it up to circumstances. Too much on my plate, etc. Then, come to find out, thanks to Master Key Lesson 10, that “nothing happens without definite cause.”
Shoot! Did that mean that I was RESPONSIBLE for my circumstances?! Yeah, yeah it did.
MKL 10.3: Knowledge of cause and effect…enables man to plan courageously and execute fearlessly…
If I’m having a bad time, I created it…at least some of it!
MKL 10.11: …Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with it’s 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. …With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it should be established unto thee.”
I had to clean up my thoughts if I wanted things to change. Not only that…I had to get specific with what I was thinking, not to mention my hopes, dreams, and wishes. This was kind of a hard pill to swallow, but also comforting, in the sense that, I had some control and say in my experience.
I kept reading MKL 10 each day, and slowly but surely the the roughness softened. I practiced positive thinking as a way to combat my “circumstances”. Things didn’t exactly get easier…but they improved. And then today we shifted to Scroll 3 in The Greatest Salesman in the World:
I will persist until I succeed.
Well, that couldn’t have come at a more needful time.
And honestly, today was a better day. What you say to yourself matters. What you think matters…because it shapes your reality…and consequently that of others close to you. So try to think happy thoughts…and if that doesn’t work, persist until you succeed.
