The “truth”, it has been said of old ,will make us free, free from lack and limitation and free from sorrow and worry. However, the truth comes in many forms, scientific truths, religious truths, legal truths, psychological truths, political truths and philosophical truths,just to name some of the major domains in which truth claims are made. The Truth that is fundamental and the source of all truths is true thought. All outward manifestation is the byproduct of inner thought. The world without is the reflection of the world within. This us the thought with which Haanel concludes the Master Key as he returns to where he began.
It has never been more transparently true then in our present time of exponential technological revolution that whatever we imagine can become our everyday reality in the near future. Every day what was once science fiction is becoming science fact. This means we will soon be living in a world of abundance for all. Nanotechnology, 3-D printing, robotics, artificial intelligence and bio-engineering are all converging toward what Ray Kurzweil has called the Singularity. The Singularity comes when the acceleration of artificial intelligence surpasses human understanding and creates super human intelligence and this intelligence solves humanities greatest problems.
The greatest gift that humans possess is the ability to think Truth. Has not Truth itself always already been the Singularity? This means that our minds have always already been connected to supreme mind. So through technological evolution we are only beginning to realize our own power through our technological creations. We can become enhanced humans and become the product of our products. As enhanced our consciousness becomes aligned and convergent with supreme consciousness and this consciousness will someday fill the cosmos illuminating its original source. Is this not the true meaning and destiny of our being?
Peace be the journey
We learn in this week’s lesson that success depends upon service. We get what we give. Great entrepreneurs have a passion for serving others. By helping others get what they want we get what we want. Life is fast-moving and change is happening at an exponential rate. In order to stay ahead of the curve we need to be creators,not followers. Followers will be disrupted by creators. It is okay however to follow or track creators or wealth generators. My DMP is to found the Vanguard investment club which tracks wealth generators. By better understanding the characteristics of current exponential entrepreneurs I expect to be able to identify the up-and-coming ones who will lead the next disruptive organizations and serve the pressing needs of the rising billions. In his latest book Bold Peter Diamandis gives us the crucial mental strategies that bold innovators and entrepreneurs use to build billion dollar exponential organizations. This list is very much aligned with what Haanel teachers in chapter 23 of the Master Key system and what we are learning in the MKMMA. Insight into opportunities leads to value creation and success. As Peter puts it, the world’s greatest problems are the entrepreneur’s greatest opportunities.
Self Reliance is Emerson’s essay on the profound importance of belief in self. His essay struck many responsive cords in me and resonated with Haanel’s teaching and what we have learned in the MKMMA. Self-help books do not teach self-reliance. They give us mantras to repeat that come from others, from without. However wise these pithy sayings may be, in the end of the day we must think our own thoughts from within. The key to hearing our own thoughts is to quiet our mind through silence. Only then can we hear ourselves think. Mostly our thoughts are drowned out by the chatter coming from the sea of sameness. Heidegger calls this “idle chatter” which is always inauthentic. “They speak” is a copy of a copy of a copy and recycles empty sayings. In order to animate genuine thinking we must catch our sudden flashes of brilliance that come to us like lightning but quickly disappear. Only when we are on our own path do we become aware of what we really think. We must be courageous enough to follow our own path and allow our thinking to guide us. Our thoughts will then be original, bold and powerful. They will have the power to manifest our life of purpose.
Haanel introduces us to a system of mental therapeutics in chapter 22 of the Master Key System. How does it work? In 20.5 he states, “it is through the law of vibration that the mind exercises control over the body”. Understanding that the mind and body are related through vibrational thought is a profound intuitive leap forward into areas that are still not yet fully understood by current scientific research. The question raised by this bold leap of intuition is how quantum physics integrates with cellular biology and neuro-cognitive science. The week force in physics calibrates to the rate of our mental activity as registered by brainwave function. It is the only physical force that is operating on the same scale as brainwave function. Is it possible that our thought seeds translate into brainwave frequencies or “music” that sets the tone of our moods? These thought seeds result in health or disease. I believe this theory will be validated by scientific research in the not-too-distant future. It is really only a matter of time before the full story of how mental vibrations create healthy or unhealthy moods is told.
Og in scroll 6 teaches that key to health and well-being is the control of our moods. This is easier said than done. Only through the work of the mastermind alliance can we learn to influence our subby so that it marches in tune with our desire for health and wellness.
