I trust everyone had a great Christmas and wishing everyone a prosperous New Year!!
As we continue on with previous week(s) theme of the power of thought and the mind, this week’s assignment of listening and reading Earl Nightengales “Strangest secret in the World.”
I have attached the link below and I encourage everyone to listen to this recording.
Words cannot express how powerful this recording is, it’s simply amazing how in sync it is with the Master Keys and the new habits we are building toward our dharma/bliss, the following quotes from the recording really hit home for me.
“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” (Definite Major Purpose)
A success is anyone who is pursuing deliberately a predetermined goal, because that’s what he or she decided to do … deliberately. (Burning Desire)
The following passage sums it up perfect, why people are not successful and how values are misguided;
“The problem is that our mind comes as standard equipment at birth. It’s free.
And things that are given to us for nothing, we place little value on but the things that we pay money for, we value.
The paradox is that exactly the reverse is true. Everything that’s really worthwhile in life came to us free: our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our ambitions, our intelligence, our love of family and children and friends and country.
All these priceless possessions are free.
But the things that cost us money are actually very cheap and can be replaced at any time… Even if our home burns down, we can rebuild it. But the things we got for nothing, we can never replace. The human mind is not used because we take it for granted.
“Familiarity breeds contempt”.
The mind was given to us for free and its the gateway to help achieve your definite purpose in life, so lets use it to manifest your dharma (lets nurture the world within, so that it can manifest in the world without). Nightengale also talks about his 30 day plan of staying positive for 30 straight days (Mental Diet, Positive Mental Attitude), and outlines the plan as follows;
|One:||Think – You will become what you think about.|
|Two:||Imagine – Remember the word imagination and let your mind begin to soar.|
|Three:||Courage – Concentrate on your goal every day.|
|Four:||Save – ten percent of what you earn.|
|Five:||Action – Ideas are worthless unless we act on them.|
As 2014, is almost upon us, a positive mental attitude (PMA) and step 5 are the key to help all of us manifest your Dharma, so let’s make are actions count and stay positive!
