Imagine you have been walking around on this planet ignorant of you Power. The Power that has been given to you the moment you were born and yours to use for the creation of miracles. The Power that has been laying dormant within you because you have been conformed to be part of 95% of the people on this planet.
So what is this Power you may ask that I am talking about. Well Andrew Carnegie calls it the Power of Mind!
In part four of lesson 20 of The Master Key System Haanel says the following;
4. Thinking is the true business of life, power is the result. You are at all times dealing with the magical power of thought and consciousness.”
Upon what condition does power depend?
Upon recognition and use.
What is recognition?
How do we become conscious of power?
What then is the true business of life?
Correct scientific thinking.
What is correct scientific thinking?
The ability to adjust our thought processes to the will of the Universal. In other words, to
cooperate with Natural laws.
How is this accomplished?
By securing a perfect understanding of the principles, forces, methods and combinations of mind.
What is this Universal Mind?
The basic fact of all existence.
What is the cause of all lack, limitation, disease and discord?
It is due to the operation of exactly the same law, the law operates relentlessly and is continually bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thought which originated or created them.
What is inspiration?
The art of realizing the omnipresence of Omniscience.
Upon what does the conditions with which we meet depend?
Upon the quality of our thought. Because what we do depends upon what we are and what we are depends upon what we think.
Now from where did we obtain this Power?
This we find in the following paragraph of Lesson 20:
“25. A knowledge of your relation and oneness with this Principle that governs the Universe and the simple method whereby you can consciously identify yourself with it gives you a scientific understanding of a law whereby you may free yourself from disease, from lack or limitation of any kind; in fact, it enables you to breathe the “breath of life” into your own nostrils.
26. This “breath of life” is a super conscious reality. It is the essence of the “I am.” It is pure “Being” or Universal Substance, and our conscious unity with it enables us to localize it, and thus exercise the powers of this creative energy.
27. Thought is creative vibration and the quality of the conditions created will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess.” At the moment we were born God breathe the “breath of life” into our nostrils. We have the breath of God within us.
I close with this paragraph from lesson 20:
“Power implies service; inspiration implies power; to understand and apply the method of inspiration is to become a superman.”
I am a superman, you are a superman/woman because of the breath of life from God and the power to control your mind.
Tom Shadyac discovered the power for himself as he explains:
