MKMMA Week-18 Aladdins Lamp- Is Within Each of Us

Aladdins lamp 2

This week we are told that Aladdins Lamp is within each of us – our thoughts and our wishes. We have learned that the power of thought is the key to creating our reality. Everything we perceive in the physical world has its origin in the invisible, inner world of our thoughts and beliefs. To become the master of our destiny, we must learn to control the nature of our dominant, habitual thoughts. By doing so, we will be able to attract into our lives that which we all intend to have and experience as we come to know the Truth that our thoughts create our reality.

For Every Outside Effect There is an Inner Cause!

Every effect we see in our outside or physical world has a specific cause which has its origin in our inner or mental world. This is the essence of thought power. Put another way, the conditions and circumstances of our life are as a result of our collective thoughts and beliefs. As Haanel teaches us in the Master Key lessons that every aspect of our lives, from the state of our finances to the state of our health and our relationships, is accurately revealing our thoughts and our beliefs.

“circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him”.

James Allen

The following words of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha perfectly capture the essence of thought power:
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”  thoughts - destiny

Oh, had I but Aladdin’s lamp,
If only for a day,
I’d try to find a link to bind
The joys that pass away.

I’d try to bring an angel’s wing    CircumstancesdontmatteronlymystateofBeingmattersBMagnolia
Upon this earth again,
And build true worth a home on earth,
A home beloved by men.

It should be May, and always May,
I’d wreath the world with flowers;
I’d robe the barren wilderness,
And bring life happy hours.

I’d soothe the lorn and desolate:
Increase the widow’s store;               Aladdin-Lamp
And industry should wear a smile,
It never wore before.

Where’re there were unhappiness,
I’d use my magic sway,
And none should be in poverty,
Or dread the coming day.

It should be May and always May,
I’d wreath the world with flowers;
I’d robe the barren wilderness,
And bring life happy hours.

“This deservedly popular song created a great sensation in this city, when introduced to the Glasgow Public by the admirable singer, Mr Plumpton, then one of the company of our Shakespeare Saloon.— It contains noble sentiments, and generous thoughts, alike honorable to the author, and worthy of the man. Copies can only be had in the Poet’s Box, No. 6 St.       Saturday Morning , January 26, 1856.”


MKMMA-Week 17 HJ “For Things To Change, You Got To Change”


“The world as we have created it, is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”     Albert Einstein


Change is hard, and I know this from experience. Sometime change takes a long time, I know this through experience in my life. Change takes effort, discipline, and the wiliness to know you have to change for things to get better in your life. You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Even though change is often difficult, many times it’s also for the best. A friend once told me, “From every adversity, comes a greater or equal opportunity”. Accomplishing anything great in life requires significant change that pushes us beyond our comfort zones. Many times, the only way to improve our lives is to force ourselves to undergo difficult change. In the MKMMA course…Our Hero’s Journey, we are learning the skills through excersises and compound progressions that are teaching us to develop habits that will change our lives.                                                            Change

Suppose, then, we desire to change conditions, how are we to bring this about? The reply is simple: By the law of growth. Cause and effect are as absolute and undeviating in the hidden realm of thought as in the world of material things.     Haanel

We have also learned The Law of Practice, by doing the readings and excersises over and over so they become a habit in our lives.  In Master Keys 9, Haanel tells us “Hold in mind the condition desired; affirm it as an already existing fact. This indicates the value of a powerful affirmation. By constant repetition it becomes a part of ourselves. We are actually changing ourselves; are making ourselves what we want to be”.

“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.”                      – Madonna        


MKMMA Week 17- Dream Your Dreams! Turn Your Vision into Decision!

empowervision“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. Your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.”

In our lesson this week we are told that Man has “dominion over all things”; this dominion is established through the Mind. Thought is the activity which controls every principle beneath it. The highest principle by reason of its superior essence and qualities necessarily determines the circumstances, aspects and relation of everything with which it comes in contact. All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own”.

“All mental discovery and attainment are the result 4034258398_mysteries_of_the_subconscious_284x212_xlargeof Desire plus concentration; Desire is the strongest mode of action; the more persistent the desire, the more authoritative the revelation. Desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature.”

All of us are dynamos, but the dynamo of itself is nothing; the mind must work the dynamo; then it is useful and its energy can be definitely concentrated. The mind is an engine whose power is undreamed; thought is an omni-working power. It is the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring in form. Physical energy is nothing in comparison with the omnipotence of thought, because thought enables man to harness all other natural power.

Decision: A choice made between alternative courses of action in a situation of uncertainty.

Haanel teaches us in 17-25 to remember that fundamentally the subconscious is omnipotent; there is no limit to the things that can be done when it is given the power to act. Your degree of success is determined by the nature of your desire. If the nature of your desire is in harmony with Natural Law or the Universal Mind, it will gradually emancipate the mind and give you invincible courage.

untitled“Every obstacle conquered, every victory gained, will give you more faith in your power, and you will have greater ability to win. Your strength is determined by your mental attitude; if this attitude is one of success, and is permanently held with an unswerving purpose, you will attract to you from the invisible domain the things you silently demand”.                       Haanel 17-26
