Standing on the Threshold of a Dream
My life, for most of my adolescence and adulthood, has been governed strictly by feelings and emotions. I justified this pattern using the excuse that I am a descendant of “Latin Ethnicity”, and thus those characteristics were expected and passed down by my Italian ancestors.
Thus explanations and excuses were always used to justify any adverse situation. Most of my family reacted in like manner so that it was always considered normal behavior. Even my friends functioned in a similar fashion.
We all believed in God, but it was an acceptance of growing up Roman Catholic that formulated our explanation of the spiritual world and our lack of intuitive thought. We just accepted our teachings as “Gospel” and responded accordingly, at the direction of the priests and Church hierarchy.
We had a lack of understanding of the knowledge of cause and effect’, or the subject of “organic and inorganic”. My only experience with those topics was taking Organic Chemistry in pharmacy school and that was enough to turn me off to those terms. Consequently, no one I have known seemed to be totally satisfied with their respective lives, no matter if their circumstances were good or bad.
But now with the realization of how understanding our mind in both the spiritual and physical realms, through the Master Keys, can change our concept of happiness and satisfaction with our lives is essential. This revelation has brought hope and a sense of power to my life, knowing I can accomplish more than I ever have is exciting.
I now realize that if I can control my thought and manifest its dynamic energy that I can completely transform my life to the better. But, so far I have learned that nothing can change unless this power is harnessed and guided in the right direction by understanding the Laws of the Mind and concepts we are learning to place this motion in action.
Thought being the connective link between myself and the Universal Mind is exciting, but it is tempered by the realization that I still have a ways to go before I can accomplish my new definite purpose in life. However, concise direction allows my creative power of the thought to believe that I have already obtained my particular desire.
But once I can thoroughly obtain and truly understand this ‘knowledge of cause and effect’, I will be well on my way to planning my life in a way I never dreamed possible and accomplishing its attainment with courage and lack of fear, free of my old mindset. Joy!
As the apostle, Paul said, “Beleive that ye receive and ye shall receive”.
