Welcome to part II of the book “The Master Key System”.
This week, the author talks about the correlation of the conscious mind with the subconscious mind and the importance of impregnating the latter with positive and good thoughts.
“Receiving any suggestions as true, the subconscious mind at once proceeds to act thereon in the whole domain of its tremendous field of work. The conscious mind can suggest either truth or error. If the latter, it is at the cost of wide-reaching peril to the whole being.”
Because the subconscious mind takes everything as it is, without asking any questions, it is important to watch our thought process and use our conscious mind to protect any wrong and damaging thoughts entering into the subconscious.
“The subconscious mind cannot argue controversially. Hence, if it has accepted wrong suggestions, the sure method of overcoming them is by the use of a strong counter-suggestion, frequently repeated, which the mind must accept, thus eventually forming new and healthy habits of thought and life, for the subconscious mind is the seat of Habit. That which we do over and over becomes mechanical; it is no longer an act of judgement, but has worn its deep grooves in the subconscious mind. This is favourable for us if the habit be wholesome and right. If it be harmful and wrong, the remedy is to recognize the omnipotence of the subconscious mind and suggest present actual freedom. The subconscious being creative and one with our divine source will at once create the freedom suggested.”
What I suggest is, to be aware of your thoughts, not like a maniac, you cannot control everything, but at least be aware of what’s going on up there in your mind and don’t let the chatter become too crazy, so that you don’t have a word in this anymore.
You always do, just listen to what you’re thinking and discern the good from the bad and try to indulge only in the good and step by step remove the bad thoughts from your mind.
It’s a long process, it takes mental effort, not everyone is ready for this kind of effort, but if you want to live a happier life, you’ll do it.
“But we shall find that there is a vast difference between simply thinking and directing our thought consciously, systematically and constructively; when we do this we place our mind in harmony with the Universal Mind, we come in tune with the Infinite, we set in operation the mightiest force in existence, the creative power of the Universal Mind. This, like everything else, is governed by natural law, and this law is the Law of Attraction, which is that Mind is creative, and will automatically correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation.”
