Week 16. New Realities


For me this very powerful lesson is my favourite, although I love them all..

The most commonly accepted definition made by wealth is that it consists of all useful and agreeable things which possess exchange value.. it is this exchange value which is the predominant characteristic of wealth..  This exchange value makes it a medium for securing the things of real value whereby our ideals may be realized…

With such an ideal in mind, the ways and means will be provided, as long as there is a fixed definite purpose, an ideal..  Thought is the plastic material with which we build images of our growing conception of life. As in all other things our ability to recognize it and use it properly is the necessary condition for attainment…

We can form our own mental images, through our own interior processes of thought regardless of the thoughts of others, regardless of exterior conditions, regardless of environment of every kind, and it is by the exercise of this power that we can control our destiny, body, mind and soul…

The vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life, it will grow, developed, expand, it will be creative; it will attach to itself everything necessary for its complete development… Thought and feeling is the irresistibly combination…

That being said, I’m not sure I always attach enough feelings to thoughts of my New Reality… This is where I use the Law Of Practice…  “Say it with FEELINGS and ENTHUSIASM” as Mark says… I can hear Mark now in my mind…  How exciting..!





Week 15 Decisions





This week we start our Franklin Makeover… well not quite…!

It’s week 17 and I’m just starting… Will this cement start to crack soon.? I hope so.. Appears I will be taking this course again.. Next time all the excercies will be done -on time.. Gee! I said that last time… I love this Master Key course, so what the heck is wrong with me?  Why don’t I love all the exercises? I do love most of them..

I do want to acquire 13 virtues..  Why did I choose not to start the makeover? We are the choices we make.. In the end, we make choices even when we say, “I didn’t have a choice.” We do.

Decisions have consequences.. !

That being said, Mark  will say “That is in the past… ..FogetAboutIt” I can actually hear him… Scary!   Just kidding Mark..

# 29.  In the physical world there is a law of compensation which is that “the appearance of a given amount of energy anywhere means the disappearance of the same amount somewhere else,” and so we find that we can get only what we give; if we pledge ourselves to a certain action we must be prepared to assume the responsibility for the development of that action.  The subconscious cannot reason. It takes us at our word; we have asked for something; we are now to receive it; we have made our bed, we are now to lie in it; the die has been cast; the threads will carry out the pattern we have made..

All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials for further growth….

Week 14 Health is Wealth

Healthy Life wooden sign with a beach on background


It’s January 26th and I find myself falling behind in my Master Key exercises..

I’m not going to fill this blog up with excuses because there really isn’t any valid ones to write about..  I must have reinforced cement….perhaps reinforced with steel….!  That being said, I’m not going to give up.. it will crack!

So here we go…catching up on five blogs…focusing on one at a time…

In lesson fourteen we learn that all things have their origin in mind, and appearances are the result of thought.. It puts us in an entirely new relation to bring about radical change in our lives.. This discipline, this mental attitude will not only bring you the material things which are necessary for your highest and best welfare, but will bring health and harmonious conditions..

If you wish health and harmony in your life, you must develop a healthy and harmonious mental attitude..

Your world without will be a reflection of your world within…

I am Whole Perfect Strong Powerful Loving Harmonious Healthy and Happy…

Week 13 Dreams of the Dreamer

Part Thirteen tells why the dreams of the Dreamer come true. It explains the law by which the thing pictured upon your mind eventually becomes our own..

What are we to think in order to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire.  What everyone is seeking, is Happiness and Harmony. If we can be truly happy we shall have everything the world can give. If we are happy ourselves we can make others happy..

But we cannot be happy unless we have, health, strength, congenial friends, pleasant environment, sufficient supply, not only to take care of our necessities but to provide for those comforts and luxuries to which we are entitled..

We have found that everything we get comes to us by the Law of Attraction. A happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions necessary to meet the changed consciousness must gradually change, in order to meet the requirements of the new situation..

We can best conserve our interests by recognizing the Infinite Power and Infinite Wisdom of the Universal Mind, and in this way become the channel whereby  the Infinite can bring about the realization of our desire.

When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I”, the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that is the same in substance, in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one “ and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal….

Increase in me that Wisdom Which discovers my truest interest, Strengthen my resolution To perform that which wisdom dictates…..  Franklin




Week 12 Desire is Love

The time and thought which most persons waste in aimless effort would accomplish wonders if properly directed with some special object in view.  In order to do this , it is necessary to center your mental force upon a specific thought and hold it there, to the exclusion of all other thoughts.  If you have ever looked through the viewfinder of a camera, you found that when the object was not in focus, the impression was indistinct and blurred, but when the proper focus was obtained the picture was clear and distinct.

This illustrates the power of concentration. Unless you can concentrate upon the object which you have in view, you will have but a hazy, indifferent, vague, indistinct and blurred outline of your ideal and the results will be in accordance with your mental picture..

You ideal must be sharp, clear-cut, definite; to have one ideal today, another tomorrow, and a third next week, means to scatter your forces and accomplish nothing; your result will be a meaningless and chaotic combination of wasted material..

There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought..

Man is, because he thinks. Mans power to think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited..

We know that thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually bringing it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we desire further away, so that it is often one step forward and two steps backward.

The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential.  You must first have knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do…

The Law is that thought will correlate with its object and bring forth in the material world the thing though or produced in the mental world.

The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power to correlate with its object, and therefore to master every adverse human experience, is the Law of Attraction, which is another name for Love. There is no getting away from the law of love.  It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is desire, and desire is love. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible….



Week 11 Truth

Inductive reasoning is the process of the objective mind, by which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all. We see people in every civilized country on the globe, securing results by some process which they do not seem to understand themselves, and to which they usually attach more or less mystery..

The operation of this Thought process is seen in those fortunate natures that process everything that others must acquire by toil, who never have a struggle with conscience because they always act correctly, and can never conduct themselves otherwise than with tact, learn everything easily, complete everything they begin with a Happy knack, live in eternal harmony with themselves, without ever reflecting much what they do, or ever experience difficulty or toil…

We all know many who have achieved the seemingly impossible, who have realized life-long dreams, who have changed everything including themselves. We have sometimes marveled at the demonstration of an apparently irresistible power, which seemed to be ever available just when it was most needed, but it is all clear now.  All that is required is an understanding of certain fundamental principles and their proper application…

For our excercise this week, we are to concentrate on the quotation from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that he receive them and ye shall have them”…….

Notice that there is no limitation, “Whatsoever things” is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us is our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to remember that Faith is not a shadow but a substance, “The Substance of things hoped for, the Evidence of things unseen”………..

Week 10. The Sit is The Connection

The soul of the Universe as we know it is the Universal Spirit; the Universe is simply the condition which the Universal Spirit has made for itself.  We are simply individualized spirit and are creating the conditions for our growth in exactly the same way.

Creation is the calling into existence that which does not exist in the objective world. This creative power depends upon our recognition of the potential power of Spirit or Mind…

The Universal Mind can be depended upon to find ways and means for bringing about any necessary manifestation. We must, however, create the ideal, and this ideal should be perfect…

“When any object is clearly held in thought, it’s precipitation, in tangible and visible form, is merely a question of time. The vision always precedes and itself determines the realization”…        Lillian Whiting



Week 9. Affirmations



In this part we learn to fashion the tools by which we may build for ourselves any condition we desire..  If we wish to change conditions we must change ourselves.. Our innermost thoughts will find expression just as certainly as the plant springs from the seed..

Holding in mind the condition desired; affirming it as an already existing fact is not always easy..  Our whims, our wishes, our fancies, our ambitions may be thwarted at every step, but by constantly repeating our affirmation, it becomes a part of ourselves; making ourselves what we want to be..  This indicates the value of a powerful affirmation..!

4. We have found that the Universal Substance is “ All Health”, “All Substance” and “All Love” and that the mechanism of attachment whereby we can consciously connect with this Infinite supply is in our method of thinking. To think correctly is therefore to enter into the “Secret Place of the Most High.”

Here is the formula..

24. I built up an affirmation,  taking the qualities I most needed , and affirming to myself over and over again, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.” Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I knew needed it..

27. Man is the sum total of his thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones?  At first we can’t keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from enterithem. The only way to do this is to forget them – which means, get something for them.. This is where the ready-made affirmation comes into play..

30. If our predominant mental attitude is one of power, courage, kindliness and sympathy, we shall find that our environment will reflect conditions in correspondence with these thoughts…

31. Thoughts are causes and conditions are effects.  Thought is creative and will automatically correlate with its object.. This is Cosmological Law, the Law of Attraction, the Law of Cause and Effect….

“As thy faith is, so be it unto thee”

”I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy”


Week 8. Choosing Your Thoughts


In this part we find that we may freely choose what to think but the result of our thought is governed by an immutable Law!  Is this not a wonderful thought?

Is it not wonderful to know that our lives are not subject to caprice variability of any kind? That they are governed by Law… This is our opportunity, because by complying with the law we can secure the desired effect with invariable precision…

Thought result in action, if our thoughts are constructive and harmonious, the result will be good; if our thoughts are destructive or inharmonious, the result will be evil..

There is therefore only one law, one principle, one cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or non-compliance with this law..

The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony..

4. We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought.  Form the habit of analyzing every thought. It’s manifestation in the objective world will be a benefit, not only to yourself, but to all whom it may effect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; is is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit a hundred fold…

19. You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought.

20. Real power comes from within.. All power that anybody can possibly use is within man, only waiting to be brought into visibility by first recognizing it, and then affirming it as is, working it into our consciousness until we become one with it…

Making this our mindset takes work and effort. The only person that can realize this is ourselves.

Awareness is the beginning of change… More simply, we are aware of our thoughts that need changing…  Change is the only constant in the universe!


Week 7. Brain Exercises


Exercises in Learning and Leveraging..

The 7 Laws of the Mind.

Law of Substitution

We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind – turn from it and think about something else instead..

Law of Relaxation

Mental effort defeats itself – exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally.. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence..

Law of Practice

Practice makes perfect. Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance.. With practice of the correct things , we improve on the other 6 Laws of the Mind.

Law of Forgiveness

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists..

Law of Dual Thought

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want..

Law of Subconscious 

As soon as the Subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand, accessing a reservoir of infinite resources..

Law of Growth

Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies..

15.  Think of it! You have over five million mental workers, ready and in active use; brain cells. Besides this , there is another reserve force of at least an equal number, ready to be called into action at the slightest need. Your power to think is almost unlimited, and this means that the power to create the kind of material which is necessary to build for yourself any kind of environment which you desire is practically unlimited…

18.  Make the Mental  Image; make it clear, distinct, perfect; hold it firmly; the ways and means will develop; supply will follow the demand;  you will be led to do the right thing at the right time and in the right way.  Earnest Desire will bring about Confident Expectation, and this in turn must be reinforced by Firm Demand. These three cannot fail to bring about Attainment, because the Earnest Desire is the Feeling, the Confident Expectation is the Thought, and the Firm Demand is the will, and, as we have seen, feelings gives vitality to Thought and the will holds it steadily until the Law of Growth brings it into manifestation…

19.  Is it not wonderful that man has such tremendous power within himself, such transcendental faculties concerning which he had no conception? Is it not strange that we have always been taught to look for power and strength “without” ?  We have been taught to look everywhere but “within” and whenever this power manifested in our lives we were to,d that it was something supernatural…

22.  Create ideals only, give no thought to external conditions, make the world within beautiful and opulentand the world without will express and manifest the condition which you have within. You will come to the realization of your power to create ideals and these ideals will be projected into the world of effect..
