The Key to Life Through Inner Self

I cannot over-emphasize the vital fact that nothing in life is possible, or can be truly appreciated, until one has discovered the key to life through one’s own inner self. All action is mental; all things must be first thought of before they can become reality. This dictum applies to your getting up in the morning, to your eating, your working, your learning, your application to life; and it also applies to everything that is ever invented or written.

No one can achieve absolute physical movement without first making a conscious effort; and to make a conscious effort implies a mental ability: to force the mind to tell the body to do whatever it is wanted to do.

If this applies to the everyday movements of your everyday life, how much more so does it apply to the bigger things you want to do in life! Most effort is so slight that it seems to be unconscious; things like breathing, seeing, speaking, hearing, seem to be so effortless that you forget that a number of things have occurred to make each movement possible. Your very breathing is controlled by a mental effort; while seeing, speaking, hearing, all have been made possible for you not only by your inner self but also by the efforts of your ancestors, by their environment, by their conscious efforts to see farther than their eyes would allow them, to hear more, in order to keep them from the danger of enemy pursuit; while speaking was a tremendously conscious effort which was moulded through the ages and through sound. Our ancestors captured sound and put words into it.

Just think for a minute. Was all this done without an effort? Nothing can become yours without a very conscious desire to make it yours. Man without speech could make no more progress than any other animal. So he invented speech. Just think of the tremendous effort involved! Just think of that wonderful impulse, which could only come from within him! Just think; without that effort we could never have come to companionship, to love, to religion, to the physical comforts of life. We could never have reached the heights of civilisation which, however abused by those who haven’t learned to make the best of their mental selves, is still good. Just think, that with our continuing effort, we can learn to make our civilisation perfect!

All this is possible only by a conscious effort from within us. It is possible only by learning how to apply ourselves so that what we feel within us proves of value in the life without us. Nothing that you think within you is impossible of achievement in the life outside yourself. Everything physical has a mental basis. You must think first to make your life and your ambition real.

The Destructive Power of Negative Thinking

There is no law of error, no principle behind problems, no definitely predictable condition or disease. But this we know: all negative mental and emotional states are destructive. Inner torment always produces outer torment. Our brains only think in the positive. Causes and conditions always match, even though we may have trouble in unraveling them. A person who has one kind of problem usually has several. When one problem is healed at the point of cause, all of the others can be healed at the same time. In spiritual mind treatment the focus is never upon the problem. We focus upon the solution. A problem has no independent existence. It is merely an effect caused by something—invariably negative inner attitudes.

Channel Your Creative Power

All that is necessary to transform is inside you.  Be courageous and commit to yourself to change and transform those areas of your life that you wish to enhance and improve. Look at your values and beliefs, where you place your energies. Forward momentum regardless of how slight is the key. A vehicle does not start at 100km/ph but builds velocity and once there the issue is keeping the correct fuels in place.

To feed our minds bodies and souls with nutritious wholesome and positive energies to sustain and supplement our journeys. Everyone’s beliefs and values are different. It discover your personal power you need to tap your creative power to understand how you think.    

Strategies to tap your creative power.

  • Love completely – don’t hold back.
  • Get interested in people – look outside yourself with compassion.
  • Give yourself wholeheartedly to an idea – get on board.
  • Dedicate your time, your talent, and your money to helping others – love and look after your community.
  • Explore the Universe and all there is to offer through thought, study, discussion, prayer, meditation or worship .

5 Basic Requirements for Successful Living

  1. Guiding Purpose
  2. Inner Strength
  3. Sense of Values
  4. Vital Faith
  5. All-Embracing Love

The Universe’s work is done by everyone no matter what the particular occupation may be. The butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker all have their places in the great scheme of things. So do the artist, the musician, the actor, and the salesman, the shaman and everyone else. Just be sure that your call comes from the Higher Self within you, that you have really heard it, and that it truly represents the expression of your highest and best. Nothing else is good enough for you. Nothing else can bring happiness, health, riches, fame or anything else. Do not deny the angel as it descends upon you.

Do not sell your birthright for a mess of mush. “Hitch your wagon to a star” and ride it to the furthermost planet. The only requirements are clarity of purpose and depth of conviction. When we deny our dreams we necessarily deny ourselves. The universe within is betrayed, and suffering and destruction are the result.

Gather your disciples together: Relaxation, Expectation, Recognition, Unification, Dedication, Intention, Identification, Conviction, Realization, Projection, Action and Cooperation and let nothing deter you as you go about this business of purposeful living. Call the roll of these inner disciples of the mind. Be sure they are all present, and examine them carefully as they answer.

There is no place for weakness any place in life; certainly not in the residents of the king­dom of your mind. If one of these basic attitudes is weak, single it out for special training. Start to think in terms of strengthening this part of your consciousness. Eliminate everything that contradicts this attitude. Affirm! Affirm! Build the conviction that what you want to be is already true within you. Build the conviction that you can and will follow through until you obtain the kingdom of accomplishment. This is the entire purpose and meaning of life. We are here not just to exist, but to live! 

Live Your Best Life!
