When Haanel talked about the difficulty of focusing on one thing for only 10 minutes, I have to admit that I chuckled to myself believing that anyone could hold a thought for 10 minutes. Well, I think I might have made it to 4 or 5 minutes after a week of practice. Having an object (photograph) to study first and then recalling the photo was much easier. Again helping to reinforce the importance of each exercise that we have been doing since Week 1.
“Electricity is a form of motion and it’s effect will depend upon the Mechanism to which it is attached” Wk 6 paragraph 3. Our nervous system is the equivalent of an electrical circuit in which force is originated. The rest of our perfectly made body from the spinal cord (transmission lines) to the blood supply keeping all of the components revitalized and healthy and finally to the skin clothing the entire mechanism is truly a “Temple of the living God” and the individual “I”, the Universal (Subconscious) Mind has been given control over this mechanism. As we have been taught every thought that we continually present to the unconscious mind will be manifested perfectly, whether constructive, getting us closer to our DMP or destructive, moving us farther away; therefore the power of focus is so very important to harness so I can decide what “I” will to be.
On a personal note, I can’t believe how many opinions this opinionated person has been caught thinking. I have found out that I have just as many, if not more, opinions as anyone else. I may not express them as often, but I still definitely think them. Surprising what observation of myself reveals.
And by the way, being honest to the man in the mirror is proving to be a very humbling exercise. I sometimes have a rough time looking him in the eyes, let alone telling him that I love him. The more I perform this exercise the more I realize that the man looking back at me is a perfect creation made by a creator with unconditional love. I need to forgive and move on realizing that in my conscious mind I will never gain perfection. All I can do is continue to learn and practice focusing on the thoughts that influence that perfect creation.
Continuing to chip away.
I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES
