Several years ago, I attended an MLM training where Bob Proctor was the key note speaker. Now I’m not sure how many of you have heard of Bob, but he is a true product of the teachings of the book “Think and Grow Rich”. The whole purpose of him being there was to teach us the importance of correct thinking. Now he only had 2.5 hours to try to explain the idea that we are the product of our own thoughts. He carried a very tattered and worn copy of “Think and Grow Rich” and stated that he had been studying and using the methods and teachings in the book for over 25 years. He did a few things on stage that were very thought provoking, things that are just now making complete sense to me. He said that money, like everything else that existed, was nothing more than the manifestation of thought. In fact, at one point he took a twenty dollar bill out of his pocket and burned it, then explained that the money was still there, it just returned to the universal substance and could be brought back to physical form again by proper conscious thought.
I have to admit, I was not ready to hear this. In fact I was thinking to myself ” What hospital did this guy escape from”. However what Bob’s talk did do, was to instill in me a curiosity to find out more about him and the book “Think and Grow Rich”. I believe his mission was accomplished. Up to that day I had read one book cover to cover. Over the past seven years I have read over 100 books, taken multiple courses and listened to many speakers in search of understanding the relationship between thought and material wealth.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears. I still would not have been ready for Haanel’s teaching in Part Fourteen if I had not had the thirteen weeks of preparation that preceded through the MKMMA program. I have learned that any thought I can hold in my conscious mind will be accepted by my subconscious mind, which is in unison with God (the Universal mind), and will be manifested into physical reality. We have been given proof through the 7 Laws of the Mind and that these Laws, like any law, work with or without our knowledge. Each week my mind has been expanded a little more, accepting a few more truths.
This week I have built new brain cells of recognition of the “universal substance” Mr. Proctor talked about all those years ago. In 14-7, Haanel explains,”We know that scientists have resolved matter into an immense number of molecules; these molecules have been resolved into atoms, and the atoms into electrons. The discovery of electrons in high vacuum glass tubes containing fused terminals of hard metal, indicates conclusively that these electrons fill all space that they exist everywhere, that they are omnipresent. They fill all material bodies and occupy the whole of what we call empty space. This, then, is the Universal Substance from which all things proceed.” He goes on to say in 14-8 that these electrons would remain electrons unless directed where to go to be assembled into atoms and molecules, and this director is The Universal Mind,in my case, God. Electrons revolving around a center of force forming an atom; atoms uniting in exact mathematical ratios forming molecules, which unite with each other to form a multitude of compounds which unite to build the Universe.
So if you think of all that we have learned to this point, we have a direct connection with the Universal Mind through our Subconscious Mind; in fact in 14-21 Haanel explains that the only difference between the subconscious and the Universal mind is one of degree. They differ only as a drop of water differs from the ocean. They are the same in kind and quality, the difference is one of degree only. Since the subby is the link between the conscious and Universal mind, our Mission, should we choose to accept, is to control the thoughts that enter the subby and are manifested into the life we live.
Let me throw another thought out there. If; everything that exists is a result of the Universal Mind acting upon the Universal Substance; the Universal Substance and the Universal Mind are omnipresent; and, we have a direct connection to the the Universal Mind through the conscious thoughts we send to our subconscious mind; then, wouldn’t it be safe to conclude that the ONLY reason anyone could have a lack in their lives would be due to the thoughts that are allowed to reach the subconscious mind.
HOW CAN WE NOT GET EXCITED about our MKMMA journey where we are all learning to control our conscious thought process.
How liberating to know that I am exactly where I am today because of the way I think. If I wish to change, in the words of Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) “what ever the mind can conceive and believe, it can have”, I only have to change my thoughts that are being sent to my subconscious mind.
Believe and be set free!!
