I am reading Master Key System by Charles Haanel. It is all a part of my Master Key Experience. This week Haanel addressed something that has been on my mind…fear, negativity, anxiety and discouragement. How do I control it? We have all experienced it, and yet we don’t know how to control it. I know “The Seven Laws of the Mind,” but is there more?
Haanel answered my question. He confirmed what I believe. In chapter 12:3 he states, ” 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.”
In 12:4 he says, “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 the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.”
The only place to access this power is in silence. Haanel is clear, 12:26 states, “It is in the Silence that you get into touch with the Omnipotent power of the subconscious mind from which all power is evolved.” It is only in silence that I come in contact with my Creator, the source of power…the source of my power, and I have the courage to step forward in faith. There they are, the three elements that control fear, anxiety and discouragement. I must be vigilant in accessing the power that I receive only in silence. The silence of sitting and meditating…my power plant. The power to live effectively.
Silence is golden in a world filled with distractions.
