A carrot, an egg, or a cup of coffee ???

Which One are you ???

Please Read

You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.



A young woman went to her mother

and told her about her life

and how things were so hard for her.

She did not know how she was going to make it

and wanted to give up,

She was tired of fighting and struggling.

It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen.

She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.

Soon the pots came to boil.

In the first she placed carrots

, in the second she placed eggs,

and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.

She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners.

She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl.

She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.

Turning to her daughter, she asked,

' Tell me what you see.' -----------

'Carrots, eggs, and coffee,' she replied.



Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots.

She did and noted that they were soft.

The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it.

After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee.

The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma.

The daughter then asked, 'What does it mean, mother?'

Her mother explained that each of these objects

had faced the same adversity: boiling water.

Each reacted differently.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting.

However, after being subjected to the boiling water,

it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile.

Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior,

but after sitting through the boiling water,

its inside became hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however.

After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

'Which are you?' she asked her daughter.

'When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong,

but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart,

but changes with the heat?

Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff?

Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean?

The bean actually changes the hot water,

the very circumstance that brings the pain

. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor.

If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst,

you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hour is the darkest and trials

are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level?

How do you handle adversity?

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,

enough trials to make you strong,

enough sorrow to keep you human

and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based

on a forgotten past;

you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures

and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.

Live your life so at the end,

you're the one who is smiling

and everyone around you is crying.

You might want to send this message

to those people who mean something to you (I JUST DID);

to those who have touched your life in one way or another;

to those who make you smile when you really need it;

to those who make you see the brighter side of things

when you are really down;

to those whose friendship you appreciate;

to those who are so meaningful in your life.

If you don't send it,

you will just miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone's day with this message!

May we all be COFFEE!!!!!!!

Yes Susan, Thank you, a great story. Its not so much what happens to us in this life that is of importance, but how we respond to what happens to us. Our growth, our evolution/enlightenment is imbedded in our choices, freewill, to respond in any given situation. To be the heroe of our own life and realize our divine attributes, or to fall back to a victumhood that is familiar.

Love and Light

THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
it will really touch your heart !!!


WATCH THIS: http://sivers.org/genius
AND, READ ALL THE COMMENTS: http://sivers.org/genius


Last week I was at the TED Conference
and saw this talk by Elizabeth Gilbert
IT REALLY speaks
to every musician and writer I know.

I promise the 19 minutes will be very well-spent.
Then I’m curious to hear your thoughts, below.



Do you feel songs come “through” you?

Do you wait for inspiration?

Or do you just work and work no matter what?

Do you feel you’ve already achieved your “greatest hit”?

Or is your greatest work yet-to-come?

I think other musicians would be curious to hear your thoughts on this too, since it’s often a very lonely pursuit,
so feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this page.

Also, it is a nice idea, to recogise posters, who do good threads,
by scoring them !!!

(as, it helps keep them at the top)

we get a lot of private emails ...
and, we know that some of what we blog here,
it really has helped me to eXpand, and, to grow,
and, more importantly, it has helped many others

(egg me on)

we were so inspired watching
this link: (mentioned above)
and, now, mentioned below:

Reading the comments there,
on that site,
really touched my heart,
in a big way !!!

The Dark insectiles are known by some as mud shadows,

this is due to them being a dark brown shadow when seen by,

or I should say noticed by some people that can see, actually they can be from black/grey

through to a baby **** type yellow or dirty gold colour

it depends on the type and what they are feeding on.(every thing organic, especially us).

The following is more factual than the author realizes,

and he is definitely on the right track, they do feed on us,

take care what you eat, they love coke etc with it in you.

Just an interesting observation if you go to any butchers shop you will notice that the butchers always have a clear complexion do you know why? Guess.

The mud shadows have a large supply of red meat to feast on instead of their host the butcher. Enjoy.

Slight of Hand in Health

May 21, 2005
Ken,
A recent post of chem3 led to the grey matter rumbling. The following is the result.

Steven Dainis was trying to CONNECT da dotzzz!! re. Health.

I have slightly edited his post for easier comprehension

for those who didn't read the complete thread. I will pick up the story after the below introduction

(Steven's post).

THIS thread here is very interesting!!!

There is a core truth buried herein with your conversation.

I'm reading here that we have some products that get altered

ever so slightly and that alteration makes them VERY harmful to the human health & well-being.

Pure unprocessed cane-sugar is full of electrolites and trace-minerals, VERY good for us!!

Along come the poison, white processed sugar, a

nd ants won't even touch the stuff!!

SO VERY MANY consumables all around us altered ever so slightly

, almost indiscernibly so, and BAM(!!!) a new enemy to human health & well-being

is spread to the masses!


This is Tim Rifats' & my core belief,

that there is a type of predator attached to 99.5% of each human born.

Called a mud-shadow and sits above the crown chakra.

It is a long story.

But, what if all these mud-shadow parasites had a common agenda.

As all parasites do, they siphon food.

These also siphon energy, mostly,

Rifat says, NEGATIVE-energy. Rifat says they love sexual energy, too,

but pass that energy along UP their chain of command.

But, these mud-shadows have a vested interest in us, their prey, to be in NON-health

. We are no use dead, but in partial sickness they get more "food" to feast on

as they ride around un-noticed by humanity for millennia.


steven.
.................................................. .................


Way back when the fig-leaf crew started cooking, the mud shadows started rejoicing,

because mankind started to be slightly ill from the effects of cooked food.

In the garden man had been a "raw eater".

A step in the direction of poor health, not enough to kill,

and feasting for the mud shadows.

Then somewhere along the way, mankind started raising and tending animals.

That of itself was no problem until mankind decided to slaughter the animals for food.

Man's gut in perfect condition takes 12 hours from eating to excrement.

A carnivore's gut in poor condition takes 6 hours.

Man is not a carnivore nor is s/he an omnivore

. Another step in the direction of poor health, not enough to kill,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Then mankind discovered that if he "spiced" his rotting meats heavily, they were now palatable.

Another step in the direction of poor health, not enough to kill, and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Then mankind learned how to concentrate the sugars in plants.

How sweet it tasted!

Three quarters of the cost of a wedding reception in the 15th Century

went for sugar in its many varieties.

It threw a bad curve ball at the eater, but after a few days of recovery all was normal again.

A temporary feast for the mud shadows

. Then in the 19th, 20th and 21st Century mankind was able to have excess sugars every day of his life.

One of the biggest underlying factors of sickness in humans and pets.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, not enough to kill,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Then mankind wanted to have the finer foods of life that only royalty and the rich could afford.

Machinery ground the grains finer and finer until the 19th, 20th and 21st Century mankind

was adding to the "sugar" overload problem because in digestion,

the finely ground grains converted instantly into sugar.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, not enough to kill,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Then the food giants discovered that instead of puffing grain via a vacuum process (healthy novelty foods) they puffed via a pressure-quick-release process which changed the molecular structure into a poison.

Everything looked the same, nobody let the cat out of the bag and bottom line profits rose considerably.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, not enough to kill, and more feasting for the mud shadows.


The Orientals developed a food seasoning that required a slow fermentation process known as MSG,

which was healthy.

Along came the American chemists with their magical test tubes and using a waste product of the sugar industry, MSG now became a poison to many people.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, not enough to kill,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


And then honest men told the story of what excess sugars were doing to man's health.

Many acted upon the preaching.

The chemical scientists went to work to help mankind continue dietary sinning by developing sugar substitutes.

Back in the days of Theodore Roosevelt, Saccharine was a "standard" sugar substitute actually a pure poison.

An honest doctor's preaching started the original FDA which attacked similar problems

with the tiger teeth imbedded in the original enabling law.

When he tackled "Coke" the total structure was dismantled and erased from history.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, enough to kill some but not too many,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Then the god of science created Monsanto which bought out the demi-god Searles

who had developed aspertame and the PR mini-gods renamed it Nutra-Sweet

and a dozen other false sounding names.

It was so bad that doctors couldn't find the culprit because it mimicked two dozen major illnesses.

Another step in the direction of poorer health, enough to kill more but not too many,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


And running all through the 20th Century the edible oil industry learned how

to add a hydrogen atom to rancid oils and with a little chemical flavoring magic

it sold as "it tastes like real butter" and a hundred other little PR sins.

And concurrently it was learned that one could take the waste from pressure extracting seed oils

and chemically treat it to extract even more oil than the original process,

and with a little moonshine-still-magic could reuse the solvent over and over,

albeit much was left in the oils.

All these cheap, oils pushed the "good", expensive oils off the supermarket shelves resulting in the total body's cells changing from flexible chemically active units into leathery, stiff cells not able to function properly.

Another step in the direction of bad health, enough to kill more but not too many more,

and more feasting for the mud shadows.


Since the 17th Century mankind himself, without any outside or etheric help has been slowly ruining his health at an accelerated pace.

I believe that since that time, the mud shadows have not needed to expend any energy to create feasts for themselves, mankind has the mud shadows in the obese status.

Energy Report:
from www.truthloveenergy.ning.com / TROY

JUNE 2009

[note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]

We described May as a "slippery" month that could be experienced much like a roller coaster. We described it in such a way as to capture the combination of releasing an attachment to control and a move into trust, because as much movement and twists and turns as there may be, you are still "on track." The experience may have seemed swift to some, and slow to others, but the point would still remain that May might have encouraged a trust in your self and those who are in your life, even as they seem to throw you off course.

June marks the end of the emphasis on the energy of the MODE of Passion. In the month that transitions between emphases, the energy can show up as amplified or muted. We see the pattern as becoming amplified.

The Mode emphasizes relationships and Passion is the medium for the relationships. In our system, Passion describes the spectrum between Self-Actualization and Identification. On the broader end of the spectrum, Passion describes how one becomes more of who he or she is through their experiences in relationships (which refers to relationships with anything, not just people), and on the more restricted end on the spectrum Passion shows up a an attachment to symbols that have been deemed representative of how one sees oneself.

With the amplification we see for June, we would think that most of you will be exploring the more restricted end of Passion (negative pole: Identification), looking more closely at what you have installed in your life as symbols of your identity. Many of you may not know what those attachments and symbols are until they are shaken from their foundation, so to speak. As they come up for examination, we would suggest an effort away from reaction. We would usually say that for you to react, or not, is your choice, and whether you do, or not, is still a valid choice, but we point out here that a reaction, while still a choice, is an anatomic choice, which simply means that it is a reactionary navigation for protection of the body. When one's identity is threatened, it is quite easy to fall into reactionary levels of navigation, shutting down, withdrawing, recoiling, flinching, running, passing out, etc. So while it is technically still a choice, it is not a conscious process of choosing, but a protective/defensive process. That kind of navigation is important in life, so we do not suggest that it is a "bad" thing; we can say with confidence that many of you, in one life or another, or in one situation or another, saved yourselves from harm through the use of your anatomic levels of choice. In this case, however, that kind of reaction may be triggered, but it has little relevance in terms of threat. It is simply a shaking up of the symbols to which you have grown attached. These symbols can range from your relationship to the public (reputation), to your relationship with money or career, your relationship with a spouse or loved one, your relationship to your future, your past, etc. It is anything that you feel strongly represents your identity. It is those things that one may find either falling away, or at least up for examination as a means to not stifle your identity by being so attached to the symbols that there is no room for evolution. Of course, for many there is no sense of necessity for conscious evolution and this is a valid path. In those case, the shaking may not be obvious, or if it is, the symbols will be immediately replaced or put back into place to secure the personal identity. In that regard, the choice is yours. Evolution of consciousness can only be slowed, never halted.

For those of you who choose to do so, awareness can be brought to your topsy-turvy month and when/if your attachments and identity are shaken, you can then use that opportunity to examine just what those symbols mean to you in terms of your sense of self. Understanding how much of "you" may have been invested in, or lost in, the symbol may shed light on where your "wheels have been spinning," or how you have slowly, and possibly unconsciously, moved your life into a sleeping pattern that has lost its sense of inspiration.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR JUNE

What we can suggest for those who resonate with this report is to keep a keen eye turned to any area of your identity that seems to be shaken up in the weeks of June. Make a note of what exactly has happened, delineating it down to a Symbol and what that Symbol Means To You. The Symbol may be tangible, or it may be a concept, but the Meaning will most likely be glaring. There is really nothing more to do than to have an conscious conversation with yourself from there, to decide if this has become an anchor against your evolution, or if it is working just fine. Keep in mind that an anchor against your evolution can be as subtle as contentment. If you find that you are/were "content" with Symbol and its Meaning, you may have simply become resigned to it. True Contentment would feel as if life is moving in a direction you had envisioned, whereas Resignation will have felt like a long pause with the vision you had once held seeming further and further away. Keep in mind that the Symbol is not the problem. It does not have to be removed from your life, and it can be replaced rather easily if you find it has fallen away, but rather the Attachment to the Symbol that can be problematic.

Once you have assessed what is true for you, your next steps and choices would most likely unfold far more clearly and with a return to a sense of vision and improvment of self on more levels than before.

As June unfolds, the more consciously one explores these upsets and shakes in this light, the more easily and quickly a shift back toward Flow (the Goal for the year.)

June 21st appears to be a Nexus [a shift in collective perspectives] themed in CLARITY. This clarity comes from the movement into the energies of Summer and the Attitude for the year, which is Idealism. We will speak more to that in July, but as the end of June comes around, a sense of higher perspective, vision, and a clarified pattern may come to light for many of you. If June feels as if one is suddenly "in the dark," July would be that movement back into light. June 21st may be that shift that brings just enough "light" into your perspective so that shapes can be seen again, and a sense of navigation can return.

We will add that many of our students, while acknowledging the impact of the shocks and shakes of June, may be pleasantly surprised at their strengths, patience, resourcefulness, honesty, and relief when they realize how much of themselves was being lost in these symbols, and the joy of having a sense of return to wholeness.

KEY PHRASES FOR JUNE MIGHT BE

WHEN I FEEL I CANNOT SEE WHAT'S AHEAD, IT'S OKAY TO TAKE TIME TO LOOK INSIDE

MY LIFE HAPPENS FROM ME, NOT TO ME

WHEN PARTS OF MY LIFE or IDENTITY ARE SHAKEN,
IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN TO BEING "ME" AGAIN

Great thoughts, Susan, worthy of sticking on the fridge or something....

Just to add to what you say:

People should remember that most things are the opposite of what you think.

For instance, try this: in order to hold on to what you love, you must let it go.

Can we let others that we love be free, without control or possessiveness?? True love must involve freedom.

Can we truely overcome jealousy? Can you still love your girlfriend after she slept with someone else? Of course!

And try this: we always draw towards us what we fear most

Those who confront evil, fear, even if thieves, prostitutes or murderers, are closer to heaven than those whose cosy world view deliberately shuts out evil and denies it exists.

These are two of the key esoteric learnings about life, passed down through the centuries.

We are here to learn. Go out and learn something new everyday.

july energy report

July marks the shift of emphasis from RELATIONSHIPS/Mode (or how one relates to something or someone or self) to PHILOSOPHY/Attitude (or how one tends to create, filter, and interpret the meaning of experiences). The months from April, May, and June can sometimes be difficult and extreme because of the emphasis of examining the space between you and someone, something, or self. Depending on what is found in that space, the experience can be inspiring or challenging. Though this kind of examination is available throughout the year and the lifetime, those months do allow for greater clarity. Now the clarity and emphasis moves into examining your truths about yourself, your life, and the world.

The overall Attitude, or Philosophy, of this year appears to be best described in our system as SPIRITUALIST, with a Positive Pole of Verification, and a Negative Pole of Belief. Regardless of your Overleaves, if you have any interactivity with the world beyond yourself, you may begin to see the general Attitude of the Spiritualist come into play among people, politics, events, etc. The Spiritualist Attitude describes a philosophy of POSSIBILITY and POTENTIAL. With this year being couched in the energy of the King and Emotional Centering, and with the shift now toward interpreting life experiences as having possibilities and potential, it would not surprise us to see our students finally feeling some rooting and implementation of what they have seen as actions needing to be taken to fulfil their inspiration. In other words, it may suddenly dawn on many of our students that the only key missing between self and potential, or self and possibility, is the action required to follow the inspiration. We say "suddenly dawn" because for many this shift in realization may come as a "what the hell was I thinking/doing/feeling before?" The path ahead may seem much more obvious than was before and with such clarity that it may seem silly that it wasn't seen until now. Keeping in mind that July through September is specifically a time for exploring perceptions of reality can help help shed light on why some things were not as obvious before.

The experience of such extremes as were felt in the previous months may begin to balance now as paths, actions, directions begin to become clearer. In fact, we could describe July with a keyword of DIRECTION. The rest is up to you, of course, but the Direction, the actions, the paths will most likely be clearer than may have been for a while. On the Positive end of this Spiritualistic influence, one would match ones sense of direction and action against the reality of possibility and potential; one would VERIFY that the next steps are bearing the fruit of ones inspiration. To "Verify," the Positive Pole of Spiritualist, one is merely acknowledging the possibilities and potentials, but asking the hard question of "but is this true?" along the way. This sense of "true" can most easily be sensed as valid or false when measured against how it is making you feel. In this case, if you continue to feel inspired, then "the path is true." Even with obstacles, challenges, discouragement, if you have a feeling of inspiration along the way, then hold true to your course, if you choose. Even if you are having trouble implementing the steps, the actions, but can sense the direction still holds inspiration for you, hold true to your course until you have confirmed otherwise.

The Negative Pole of this experience would be in what we describe as BELIEF, which is a blind movement and direction based on Hope and Faith, but with very little questioning, if any, to verify if the direction and movement is fulfiling the possibilities and potentials. We describe this as a means to help you to be aware of how you are moving forward, but we do not describe this as a means to deter you from this Negative Pole. For many, a "leap of faith" is quite important and as fruitful as any other, more conscious, choices. We only describe this as the more limited end of the spectrum of perception in terms of Spiritualist. In fact, those who have felt the necessity to turn to hope, faith, and blind movement, can attest to this sense of restriction and limitation against choice. If you feel a need to leap forward in this way, it simply means you can see no other option, but this may be just the leap you needed to get into a clearer space. We can only suggest that "when you land," you can then seek to Verify if where you have landed is true to your sense of inspiration and direction of potential.

THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR JULY:

1. ORGANIZE YOUR DAY
Make a list of "things to do" in your day ahead, or the next day, so that your mind and body are free to work through that list without the overwhelm of floating anxieties and directions, allowing you to see your progress in a satisfying and inspiring way

2. MEDITATE
We rarely suggest an activity such as this as we usually focus on considerations that are already a part of the routine of most of our students' lives, but for July, we can say that mediation could almost be considered vital to the sense of inspiration, direction, and possibilities of the year ahead. By "meditate," we describe a triad of effort that starts with Examination, moves into Implementation, and then into Realization. For July, it would do our students well to Examine which of the primary centers (Moving, Emotional, or Intellectual) is least-used or most out of balance, (this should be rather obvious to most of you) and then Implement a behavior that brings about that Centering into your life. If you lack balance of Movement, then for a part of your week, your day, empahsize Movement: take a walk longer than you normally would; literally exercise; dance; stretch; do Yoga, etc. If you lack Emotional balance, then expose yourself to elements that provoke or soothe your emotions, such as listening to music (actually listening to it, not just having it as background); experiencing a live concert or performance; watching the sky, sunset, clouds; sitting with nature; etc. If you lack balance of Intellect, then for part of your week or your day, implement Intellectual experiences such as crossword puzzles, brain teasers; singing; shouting out randomly in nonsensical sounds to provoke laughter; telling the truth to a friend or self; writing a list of gratitude; sitting still; etc. On the other side of these experiences one would find the Realizations that come as part of Meditation.

3. SHARE YOUR TRUTHS
By this we mean to find ways not to hide, protect, or defend your truths, but to find confidence and comfort in sharing your truths with others. This does not mean imposing your truths, or displaying them, but gently sharing when the contexts arise. Many of our students do not realize how often they defend, hide, or protect the truths about themselves and their interpretations/philosophies about life, but your truths are just ideas that mean something to you. They do not have to mean anything to anyone else. They do not have to be global or universal. But if they mean something to you, then to share them is to embrace yourself, to accept yourself, and to open yourself to broader truths, while inviting others to experience the same.

July appears to be free of any major shifts in reality (Nexuses),
so the month should feel more solid, with a sense of more presence in your life
than might have been felt for a while.

Elderly Italian man at confession

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy, went to the local church for confession.



When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said: "Father ..... During World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic."



The priest replied, "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that."



"There is more to tell Father. She started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays."



The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger but two people under those circumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven."



"Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. I do have one more question."



"And what is that?" asked the priest.



"Should I tell her the war is over?”

The Hotel Bill


Next time you think your hotel bill is too high you might want to consider this:



My wife and I are travelling by car from Vancouver to Winnipeg. After almost twenty-four hours on the road, we were too tired to continue, and decide to take a room, but we only planned to sleep for four hours and then get back on the road. When we checked out four hours later, the desk Clerk; hands us a bill for $350.00. I explode and demand to know why the charge is so high.



I tell the clerk although it's a nice hotel; the rooms certainly aren't worth $350.00. When the clerk tells me $350.00 is the standard rate, I insisted on speaking to the Manager.



The Manager appears, listens to me, and then explains that the hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference centre that were available for us to use.



'But we didn't use them!'



'Well, they are here, and you could have,' explains the Manager.



He goes on to explain we could also have taken in one of the shows for which the hotel is famous. 'The best entertainers from New York, Hollywood, and Las Vegas perform here,' the Manager says.



'But we didn't go to any of those shows’.



'Well, we have them, and you could have,' the Manager replies.



No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, I replied, 'But we didn't use it!'



The Manager is unmoved, and eventually I gave up and agreed to pay.



I write a cheque and give it to the Manager. The Manager is surprised when he looks at the cheque.



'But sir,' 'this cheque is only made out for $50.00.'



'That's correct, 'I charged you $300.00 for sleeping with my wife.'



'But I didn't!' exclaims the Manager.



'Well, too bad,' 'She was here and you could have.'

MARCH ENERGY REPORT :

Energy Report: MARCH
February 26, 2009 at 5:00pm
As March comes into passing, it appears to us that the positive pole of the Goal of Flow (freedom) will finally find some emphasis for many of our students. The experience of just "letting life happen" and "going with the flow" may come to feel fairly comfortable and familiar to many as March unfolds. It looks to us to be quite a "slippery" month, in that to navigate it one may find that trying to control events or plan too strictly is simply burdensome.

March may feel as if it comes and goes rather quickly for most of our students, but it also looks to have potential for leaving some playful, important, and pivotal moments. Despite it's slipping by rather quickly, it appears to be one of the more productive months of these first three months of the year, though much of what will seem productive in retrospect may have seemed frivolous or whimsical at the time.

In addition to all of this, we see that many of you who have lived with frustrating, repetitive, and paralysing patterns within the life may find some relief if you follow through with your sense of inspiration. This means a break from addictions, from solitude, from boredom, from anxiety, from most of the more unappealing patterns that may have felt imposed upon you for the past months or years. This will not mean they are gone, but that a break can be experienced and this break can help bring you clues as to how to implement a permanent break, if you choose to follow through and make a change in the direction your life flows.

We do not have much to say about March because of this emphasis on Flow, but we can offer a few key areas of awareness as you navigate the month.

When one is dealing with an emphasis on Flow, it can sometimes be confusing as to what is more important for considering: the internal flow or the external flow. In other words, if one is pressed to make a choice, there are often a few clear paths revealed externally, but internally there is a resistance and a focus in other directions that are far more appealing to the Personality. What we suggest in times where Flow is a priority is to consider the EXTERNAL paths of flow over your internal paths. While your internal navigation is certainly important and valid, if one wants to flow, or move toward freedom, it important to consider what is presenting itself to you in the moment. We are not speaking of completely disregarding your internal flow, but that when it comes to material or external world directions and navigation, it is often far more accurate to your path than your internal, often over-thought, over-emotional data bank of possibilities. For example, if you are in a situation where you are losing your home and two people have offered to help in your transition or nurturing during that loss, it can often be met internally with resistance and an effort to figure out other options so that you are not in a dependent situation. This is a valid response and if one can find a solution to match the internal ideal, then that can be followed if one chooses to follow it, however, when situations arise and offers for solutions present themselves, those solutions are often an important part of a faster recovery or move in a desired direction, even if on the surface it does not appeal to you. This does not mean you have to take an offer that is profoundly distasteful or repulsive to you, but that it is Good Work to explore whether your Chief Negative Features (or Fear) is keeping you from a clearer external path than what you can find internally at the moment.

KEY WORDS and PHRASES for MARCH might be:

WHICH IS EASIER?
However begrudging or resistant you may be, which path presenting itself to you honestly feels easier? If you find that sticking to your internal ideals is keeping you stuck, versus being open to a path that is presenting itself, it may be important to consider that clearer path; if you choose to do so.

WHICH IS MORE FUN?
Again, however begrudging or resistant you may be, which path presenting itself could be quite an adventure and add to your spectrum of skills and experiences? It's not always about matching your internal ideals that may only be concerned with superficial levels, but about your deeper needs for adventure, freedom, and expression.

LIFE IS AN EXPERIMENT, not a PRESCRIPTION
Keeping in mind that that your life is not condemned to previous experiences, patterns, or expectations can help to free many of you from trying to squeeze your world into self-imposed or socially-imposed constraints of prescription. In other words, what you bring to life, how you live it, where you choose to go, how you choose to go, and whether it is "good for you," or not is all for you to determine. We are not speaking here of crossing boundaries with your choices in a way that would harm others, unless you choose to do so, though the repercussions of that are often quite unpleasant and counterproductive, but that your personal sphere of creativity is YOUR sphere with which anything can be done. This freedom is something that allows for your experimentation, which will include disappointments, failures, and pain, but it is yours. It is not always necessary to be "safe," or to move through the life by the prescriptions that come from consensus.

MAY 2009

WWW.truthloveenergy.ning.com / troy


April began an emphasis on the Mode for the year and this continues into May
with most of our students experiencing the height of this emphasis now before it may soften a bit in June.

The Mode for this year has been described as Passion by us,
and this means that April through June would have an emphasis on relationships, or relating,
and how those relationship contribute to fulfilling the potential for all involved.

When this is done in a Positive way, the potential is followed and met to some degree of fulfillment,
and when this is done in a Negative way,
attachment to superficial symbols of fulfillment
can leave one losing ones identity to those symbols of specialness,
instead of fulfilling ones own true, unique potential.

[note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality,"
so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System;
these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]

That being said, May looks to be a slippery month, so to speak. If April could be seen as a rather paced month leading to the top of a slide, then May is the sliding down. For many April seems to have evaporated into the air of experience with only a few solid memories, but this is because that month was one of exploring possibilities for direction, being adaptable, and doing ones best to enjoy the scenery along the way, if you will. Most of our students have found a sense of build up to this precipice, this top of the slide, and may now find themselves nervous, excited, anxious, and drawing on courage to "let go" into the tremendous Flow that May might bring.

For most of our students, May might be found to be a "one thing after another" month, but not necessarily in a difficult way; more in a surprising way. For those who feel this streamlined movement of energy into May, the feeling may be similar to having walked the amusement park and have chosen the Roller Coaster. Sitting in the car of this ride, one knows that it is all a matter of Trust and thrilling pleasure for the rest of this ride.

We do not choose the slide or the roller coaster randomly. Both are quick, possibly with turns and twist and loops, but with very specific directions, taking one to a specific place. In addition to this, both describe a rather circular experience in that neither take you very far from where you started, but both are full of movement, excitement, and potential joy. We chose these metaphors because May might be the same, in that nothing "new" will have happened, and your twists and turns ahead may not take you very far in any obvious way, but ones thrill in throwing up ones hands and enjoying the ride can bring a tremendous delight to the ride. Fear, stress, hanging on for dear life, or wishing for a halt or return to the safety of where you began will not change the ride or your path.

We will point out here that this "roller coaster" experience is not an imposed experience, but a result of diving in to thrill of surrender and trust. We see many as moving in to a point where the bombardment of media and troubled times can only be processed to a certain extent before either collapsing in fear, or throwing ones hands up and enjoying the ride, knowing that for a short while, worry and anxiety is not going to change a thing. This "throwing up of hands" is not from exasperation, but from sheer delight in embracing the spectrum of life and pulling from the deeper memories that assure that all is well. Any impact or control you may have over your life will be obvious, but those areas not able to be controlled or wished away can be found to be a part of the ride, not obstacles to battle.

The "slipperiness" of May is to such an extent that we would not be surprised if this were played out in several collapses, mud/land slides, avalanches, etc. We realize this is far more destructive of an energy than what we described above, but any time a certain structure of energy pattern is predominant, then weather and larger-scale events often shape themselves around that, locally and globally. This gives creative exit points for those Essences who are looking for one. Although it could be said that events like this are often the result of collective patterns of choice and action, it is not something that can be controlled to any great extent, any more than your walking through a bed of leaves can keep a whirlwind from kicking up that pulls the leaves into a pattern behind you.

Knowing that this energy is moving through May can help one to either step out of the way, take cover, or join the flow and ride it to a new level of experience regarding familiar contexts.

KEYWORDS and PHRASES for May might be:

I CAN CHOOSE TO ENJOY THE RESULTS OF MY CHOICES EVEN AS THEY CARRY ME ON TO BETTER CHOICES

HAVING NO CONTROL MIGHT BE AN INVITATION FROM ESSENCE TO ENJOY THE RIDE

ENJOYING THE RIDE DOES NOT EQUATE HAVING NO CHOICE

ENJOYING THE RIDE DOES NOT EQUATE LOSS OF POTENTIAL

Keep in mind that the emphasis over May would seem to be in the realm of relationships, so the "ride" may be found in having to make room for the choices made by others in your life that seem to move you in directions that seem to lack control. This is a good time to raise the possibility that, on some level, you have allowed certain fragments into your life to bring to you experiences that you would not have chosen, or would have been able to create, on your own. In other words, this could be a time for absolute, blissful trust in the circle of life you have created or allowed in to your life to this point, however close or far they may be from you. Examining the invitations or impact from others does not remove your capacity for choice, but does increase your ability to navigate more joyfully, playfully, and softly.

JUNE 2009

Energy Report:
from www.truthloveenergy.ning.com / TROY

JUNE 2009

[note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]

We described May as a "slippery" month that could be experienced much like a roller coaster. We described it in such a way as to capture the combination of releasing an attachment to control and a move into trust, because as much movement and twists and turns as there may be, you are still "on track." The experience may have seemed swift to some, and slow to others, but the point would still remain that May might have encouraged a trust in your self and those who are in your life, even as they seem to throw you off course.

June marks the end of the emphasis on the energy of the MODE of Passion. In the month that transitions between emphases, the energy can show up as amplified or muted. We see the pattern as becoming amplified.

The Mode emphasizes relationships and Passion is the medium for the relationships. In our system, Passion describes the spectrum between Self-Actualization and Identification. On the broader end of the spectrum, Passion describes how one becomes more of who he or she is through their experiences in relationships (which refers to relationships with anything, not just people), and on the more restricted end on the spectrum Passion shows up a an attachment to symbols that have been deemed representative of how one sees oneself.

With the amplification we see for June, we would think that most of you will be exploring the more restricted end of Passion (negative pole: Identification), looking more closely at what you have installed in your life as symbols of your identity. Many of you may not know what those attachments and symbols are until they are shaken from their foundation, so to speak. As they come up for examination, we would suggest an effort away from reaction. We would usually say that for you to react, or not, is your choice, and whether you do, or not, is still a valid choice, but we point out here that a reaction, while still a choice, is an anatomic choice, which simply means that it is a reactionary navigation for protection of the body. When one's identity is threatened, it is quite easy to fall into reactionary levels of navigation, shutting down, withdrawing, recoiling, flinching, running, passing out, etc. So while it is technically still a choice, it is not a conscious process of choosing, but a protective/defensive process. That kind of navigation is important in life, so we do not suggest that it is a "bad" thing; we can say with confidence that many of you, in one life or another, or in one situation or another, saved yourselves from harm through the use of your anatomic levels of choice. In this case, however, that kind of reaction may be triggered, but it has little relevance in terms of threat. It is simply a shaking up of the symbols to which you have grown attached. These symbols can range from your relationship to the public (reputation), to your relationship with money or career, your relationship with a spouse or loved one, your relationship to your future, your past, etc. It is anything that you feel strongly represents your identity. It is those things that one may find either falling away, or at least up for examination as a means to not stifle your identity by being so attached to the symbols that there is no room for evolution. Of course, for many there is no sense of necessity for conscious evolution and this is a valid path. In those case, the shaking may not be obvious, or if it is, the symbols will be immediately replaced or put back into place to secure the personal identity. In that regard, the choice is yours. Evolution of consciousness can only be slowed, never halted.

For those of you who choose to do so, awareness can be brought to your topsy-turvy month and when/if your attachments and identity are shaken, you can then use that opportunity to examine just what those symbols mean to you in terms of your sense of self. Understanding how much of "you" may have been invested in, or lost in, the symbol may shed light on where your "wheels have been spinning," or how you have slowly, and possibly unconsciously, moved your life into a sleeping pattern that has lost its sense of inspiration.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR JUNE

What we can suggest for those who resonate with this report is to keep a keen eye turned to any area of your identity that seems to be shaken up in the weeks of June. Make a note of what exactly has happened, delineating it down to a Symbol and what that Symbol Means To You. The Symbol may be tangible, or it may be a concept, but the Meaning will most likely be glaring. There is really nothing more to do than to have an conscious conversation with yourself from there, to decide if this has become an anchor against your evolution, or if it is working just fine. Keep in mind that an anchor against your evolution can be as subtle as contentment. If you find that you are/were "content" with Symbol and its Meaning, you may have simply become resigned to it. True Contentment would feel as if life is moving in a direction you had envisioned, whereas Resignation will have felt like a long pause with the vision you had once held seeming further and further away. Keep in mind that the Symbol is not the problem. It does not have to be removed from your life, and it can be replaced rather easily if you find it has fallen away, but rather the Attachment to the Symbol that can be problematic.

Once you have assessed what is true for you, your next steps and choices would most likely unfold far more clearly and with a return to a sense of vision and improvment of self on more levels than before.

As June unfolds, the more consciously one explores these upsets and shakes in this light, the more easily and quickly a shift back toward Flow (the Goal for the year.)

June 21st appears to be a Nexus [a shift in collective perspectives] themed in CLARITY. This clarity comes from the movement into the energies of Summer and the Attitude for the year, which is Idealism. We will speak more to that in July, but as the end of June comes around, a sense of higher perspective, vision, and a clarified pattern may come to light for many of you. If June feels as if one is suddenly "in the dark," July would be that movement back into light. June 21st may be that shift that brings just enough "light" into your perspective so that shapes can be seen again, and a sense of navigation can return.

We will add that many of our students, while acknowledging the impact of the shocks and shakes of June, may be pleasantly surprised at their strengths, patience, resourcefulness, honesty, and relief when they realize how much of themselves was being lost in these symbols, and the joy of having a sense of return to wholeness.

KEY PHRASES FOR JUNE MIGHT BE

WHEN I FEEL I CANNOT SEE WHAT'S AHEAD, IT'S OKAY TO TAKE TIME TO LOOK INSIDE

MY LIFE HAPPENS FROM ME, NOT TO ME

WHEN PARTS OF MY LIFE or IDENTITY ARE SHAKEN, IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN TO BEING "ME" AGAIN

july 2009 energy report

[note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]

June's spike of final emphasis on Passion and Mode manifested in several interesting ways on a scale that shook large pockets of fragments and their sense of identity and symbols, from the seemingly unusual string of deaths among popular icons to the bloody battles of Iran. It would be helpful to look back over June to examine how these events on a global scale are macrocosmic reflections of the microcosmic events in an individual life. We see that most of our students found themselves in positions that questioned their sense of identity and if that questioning is followed by comprehension and resolution, then this can help set the tone for the move through the next few months of emphasis on the Attitude of Idealism. Comprehension and resolution would come from an honest look at the attachments to symbols as a form of identity and to embrace those symbols while understanding that the symbols are not the same as the qualities. Symbols can come and go, but the qualities inherent in your identity and being exist with or without their external representation. Being dependent on symbols is like being dependent on paper and pen for your thinking. Your thinking exists with or without the pen and paper. Even when paper and pen become extensions of your thinking, your thinking does not cease if the pen and paper are removed.

July brings with it a shift from an emphasis on relationships and personal identity to an emphasis on philosophical perceptions and your sense of need for improvement.

The Attitude in our system is a component of Personality that describes the philosophical stance of the lifetime, the basic perception of the world and how experiences are interpreted through that primary philosophy. There are 7 basic philosophies, or Attitudes, and while each of you will already have your own as part of your Personality, the time frame of a year can also be described in terms of the general philosophy "in the air," so to speak. This year, it appears the general mood is one of continued improvement and an emphasis on seeking out, identifying, and altering flaws. This would mean to us that most of our students may find themselves intentionally focusing on, or "accidentally" stumbling upon, one or more components of the life, Personality, or environment, internally or externally, that are ready for improvement.

For those who have come to comprehend and resolve the exploration of identity and symbols over April, May, and June, then July may start off with "your feet hitting the ground, running." It will be clear to those fragments WHAT needs or wants improvement, and the direction would be on the HOW. For those who feel some amount of overwhelm, confusion, or dismissal of the events of April, May, or June, then July may start off with the exploration of WHAT.

For those who start off July with an emphasis on exploring WHAT, it would mean a sense of distraction with what exactly it is that holds you in a pattern, or keeps you from feeling as if you are fulfilled, moving forward, or making an impact in areas of effort. For some, this will show up as a literal distraction, generating a sense of lacking concentration or presence, until there is a grasp on exactly what to improve. This would be a time of strong, self-scrutiny on the positive end, and a time of vague disappointment on the more negative end.

For those exploring the WHAT, we would suggest that your exploration not be one of discovery, but one of DECISION. In other words, you do not have to wait for the so-called flaws to reveal themselves, or for the obstacles that can use some transformation to be uncovered. Instead, you can remind yourself that this is YOUR life, and that the design of your being, your days, and directions are simply a product of your choices. Decisions are the path to Choices. Decisions are a Path, and Choices are a Pivot. Decisions shape your days, and Choices shape your life.

So, instead of being distracted, waiting, or wandering, you can make the decision as to what to improve TODAY. It does not have to be that pivotal thing that would improve everything, but you will find your way to that pivotal thing much more comfortably and quickly when you start making Decisions to shape your focus of the day, which will then lead to Choices, and those moments of Choice will be clearer when they come around.

For those who found a strong sense of awareness about personal symbolism and identity over April, May, and June, your July might start off immediately aware of WHAT could use some improvement, even if begrudgingly, and so your month may emphasize the HOW of the process. By this we mean that it is no longer a mystery as to what part of your development has lead to a pattern of immobility or repetitiveness and it is now up to you to do the work of either transforming that or embracing that.

In both cases of What or How, the spectrum of Idealism may come into play. On the positive end of the spectrum there is COALESCENCE, which is not only the awareness of all of the ingredients and steps that must come together to fulfill a vision, but also the awareness of the effort that this requires. On the negative end of the spectrum there is NAIVETY, which is the experience of being blinded or distracted by the end-goal, or vision, without any attention to the steps and efforts that may be required to get there; it can also be the constant disappointment and frustration with how things SHOULD BE vs how things ARE, forgetting the time, energy, and patience that may be required for change.

Idealism always sees room for improvement, and there is always room for improvement, so it is an exhausting philosophy for some. Since there is always room for improvement in nearly everything, since evolution is in an on-going process, then there can tend to be a constant emphasis on flaws and short-comings. When this comes from the positive pole of Coalescence, the flaws, short-comings, and improvements are seen as a gentle informative process for directing visions, efforts, and choices. When this comes from the negative pole of Naivety, the flaws, short-comings, and improvements are seen burdens, disappointments, and a constant source of comparisons that always leaves one feeling empty, angry, depressed, or frustrated. Keeping these poles in mind can help each of you through the next few months of self-improvement and your sense of progress toward your visions.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR JULY might be:

BECAUSE I CAN SEE IT DOES NOT MEAN I AM (or he/she is) THERE.
BECAUSE I CAN SEE IT DOES NOT MEAN EVERYONE ELSE CAN (or cares to).
DECISIONS CREATE THE PATH TO CHOICES; CHOICES CREATE THE LIFE.
FULFILLING A VISION IS A PROCESS, NOT A PREDICTION.
FLAWS ARE ONLY BREAKS IN THE PATTERN YOU CONSIDER THE IDEAL
THE PROCESS OF IMPROVEMENT IS KIND AND PATIENT

(Prayers to ITALY at this time and to all )

This is the English translation of a poem that spread widely among Chinese netizens after the May 12 earthquake, by an anonymous author on the Internet.

Hold onto Mom, My Child

In memory of children who lost lives in the earthquake

Come, my child,

Hold onto mom's hands.

The road to Heaven is too dark.

I'm afraid you might be hurt again.

Come, hold mom's hands tightly.

Let mom go with you.



Mom, I'm afraid.

The road to Heaven is too dark.

I can't see your hand.

Since the fallen walls took away the sunlight,

I shall never see your gentle eyes.



Move on, my child,

The road ahead has no worries,

No books that you can't finish,

Nor dad's complaints.

You must remember dad's face and mine,

In the next life,

We shall be together again.



Don't worry, mom,

The road to Heaven is crowded,

There are my classmates and pals.

Don't cry, we all say

Anyone's mom is our mom.

Mom, every child has a mom.

In the days without me,

Give your love to other children.

Mom, mom, don't cry.

Tears won't shed light on our path.

Let us go away.

I'll remember your face and dad's looks.

Let's promise,

In the next life, we'll be together again.

Sounds like you should watch the Italian film "Cinema Paradiso", an absolute masterpiece, which takes you back to the past, to long lost memories....of course you need a full box of tissues at the ready....

"In times like these, escape is the only way to stay alive and continue dreaming"...a quote from Cinema Paradiso.

- MASTERKEY

Nature compels us all to move through life. We could not remain stationary however much we wished. Every right-thinking person wants not merely to move through life like a sound-producing, perambulating plant, but to develop - to improve - and to continue the development mentally to the close of physical life.

This development can occur only through the improvement of the quality of individual thought and the ideals, actions and conditions that arise as a consequence. Hence a study of the creative processes of thought and how to apply them is of supreme importance to each one of us. This knowledge is the means whereby the evolution of human life on earth may be hastened and uplifted in the process.

Humanity ardently seeks "The Truth" and explores every avenue to it. In this process it has produced a special literature, which ranges the whole gamut of thought from the trivial to the sublime - up from Divination, through all the Philosophies, to the final lofty Truth of "The Master Key".

The "Master Key" is here given to the world as a means of tapping the great Cosmic Intelligence and attracting from it that which corresponds to the ambitions, and aspirations of each reader.

Every thing and institution we see around us, created by human agency, had first to exist as a thought in some human mind. Thought therefore is constructive. Human thought is the spiritual power of the cosmos operating through its creature man. "The Master Key" instructs the reader how to use that power, and use it both constructively and creatively. The things and conditions we desire to become realities we must first create in thought. "The Master Key" explains and guides the process.

"The Master Key" teaching has hitherto been published in the form of a Correspondence Course of 24 lessons, delivered to students one per week for 24 weeks. The reader, who now receives the whole 24 parts at one time, is warned not to attempt to read the book like a novel, but to treat it as a course of study and conscientiously to imbibe the meaning of each part - reading and re-reading one part only per week before proceeding to the next. Otherwise the later parts will tend to be misunderstood and the reader's time and money will be wasted.

Used as thus instructed "The Master Key" will make of the reader a greater, better personality, and equipped with a new power to achieve any worthy personal purpose and a new ability to enjoy life's beauty and wonder.

F.H. BURGESS

*************************************

There are many today who claim The Master Key System is the greatest book ever written.



It is simply one of the finest studies in personal power, metaphysics, and prosperity consciousness that exists.

And The Master Key System was among the first books to use the phrase Law of Attraction, which has become such a popular term today when referring to the most powerful force in the universe.

Covering everything from how to create abundance and wealth to how to get healthy, the author Charles F Haanel leaves no stone unturned.

With precision, he elucidates on each topic with logic and rigor that not only leaves you feeling good, but also thinking good.

The book was banned by the Church in 1933 and has been hidden away for decades.

Rumor has it that while he was attending Harvard University, Bill Gates discovered and read The Master Key System. It was this book that inspired the future founder of Microsoft to drop out of the University and pursue his dream of "a computer on every desktop." You probably know the results...

It is Silicon Valley's secret that almost every entrepreneur who made a fortune in recent years did so by studying the words Mr. Haanel penned around 100 years ago! Almost every millionaire and billionaire in the Valley read The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel. Since this book was no longer in print until recently, copies of The Master Key System became a hot commodity in the Valley.

The book was also one of the major inspirations behind the hit movie known as "The Secret" and is now known to have inspired the writing of the world's most famous success book Think And Grow Rich.

Also available to read for free on PsiTek is Charles F Haanel's other classic metaphysical books: Mental Chemistry and You

MORE MASTERKEY

Some men seem to attract success, power, wealth, attainment, with very little conscious effort; others conquer with great difficulty; still others fail altogether to reach their ambitions, desires and ideals. Why is this so? Why should some men realize their ambitions easily, others with difficulty, and still others not at all? The cause cannot be physical, else the most perfect men, physically, would be the most successful. The difference, therefore, must be mental - must be in the mind; hence mind must be the creative force, must constitute the sole difference between men. It is mind, therefore, which overcomes environment and every other obstacle in the path of men.

When the creative power of thought is fully understood, its effect will be seen to be marvelous. But such results cannot be secured without proper application, diligence, and concentration. The student will find that the laws governing in the mental and spiritual world are as fixed and infallible as in the material world. To secure the desired results, then, it is necessary to know the law and to comply with it. A proper compliance with the law will be found to produce the desired result with invariable exactitude. The student who learns that power comes from within, that he is weak only because he has depended on help from outside, and who unhesitatingly throws himself on his own thought, instantly rights himself, stands erect, assumes a dominant attitude, and works miracles.

It is evident, therefore, that he who fails to fully investigate and take advantage of the wonderful progress which is being made in this last and greatest science, will soon be as far behind as the man who would refuse to acknowledge and accept the benefits which have accrued to mankind through an understanding of the laws of electricity.

Of course, mind creates negative conditions just as readily as favorable conditions, and when we consciously or unconsciously visualize every kind of lack, limitation and discord, we create these conditions; this is what many are unconsciously doing all the time.

This law as well as every other law is no respecter of persons, but is in constant operation and is relentlessly bringing to each individual exactly what he has created; in other words, "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap."

Abundance, therefore, depends upon a recognition of the laws of Abundance, and the fact that Mind is not only the creator, but the only creator of all there is. Certainly nothing can be created, before we know that it can be created and then make the proper effort. There is no more Electricity in the world today than there was fifty years ago, but until someone recognized the law by which it could be made of service, we received no benefit; now that the law is understood, practically the whole world is lit by it. So with the law of Abundance; it is only those who recognize the law and place themselves in harmony with it, who share in its benefits.

The scientific spirit now dominates every field of effort, relations of cause and effect are no longer ignored.

Return to top

The discovery of a region of law marked an epoch in human progress. It eliminated the element of uncertainty and caprice in men's lives, and substituted law, reason and certitude.

Men now understand that for every result there is an adequate and definite cause, so that when a given result is desired, they seek the condition by which alone this result may be attained.

The basis upon which all law rests was discovered by inductive reasoning which consists of comparing a number of separate instances with one another until the common factor which gives rise to them all is seen.

Return to top

It is this method of study to which the civilized nations owe the greater part of their prosperity and the more valuable part of their knowledge; it has lengthened life, it has mitigated pain, it has spanned rivers, it has brightened the night with the splendor of day, extended the range of vision, accelerated motion, annihilated distance, facilitated intercourse, and enabled men to descend into the sea, and into the air. What wonder then that men soon endeavored to extend the blessings of this system of study to their method of thinking, so that when it became plainly evident that certain results followed a particular method of thinking it only remained to classify these results.

This method is scientific, and it is the only method by which we shall be permitted to retain that degree of liberty and freedom which we have been accustomed to look upon as an inalienable right, because a people is safe at home and in the world only if national preparedness mean such things as growing surplus of health, accumulated efficiency in public and private business of whatever sort, continuous advance in the science and art of acting together, and the increasingly dominant endeavor to make all of these and all other aspects of national development center and revolve about ascending life, single and collective, for which science, art and ethics furnish guidance and controlling motives.

The Master Key is based on absolute scientific truth and will unfold the possibilities that lie dormant in the individual, and teach how they may be brought into powerful action, to increase the person's effective capacity, bringing added energy, discernment, vigor and mental elasticity. The student who gains an understanding of the mental laws which are unfolded will come into the possession of an ability to secure results hitherto undreamed of, and which has rewards hardly to be expressed in words.

Return to top

It explains the correct use of both the receptive and active elements of the mental nature, and instructs the student in the recognition of opportunity; it strengthens the will and reasoning powers, and teaches the cultivation and best uses of imagination, desire, the emotions and the intuitional faculty. It gives initiative, tenacity of purpose, wisdom of choice, intelligent sympathy and a thorough enjoyment of life on its higher planes.

The Master Key teaches the use of Mind Power, true Mind Power, not any of the substitutes and perversions; it has nothing to do with Hypnotism, Magic or any of the more or less fascinating deceptions by which many are led to think that something can be had for nothing.

The Master Key cultivates and develops the understanding which will enable you to control the body and thereby the health. It improves and strengthens the Memory. It develops Insight, the kind of Insight which is so rare, the kind which is the distinguishing characteristic of every successful business man, the kind which enables men to see the possibilities as well as the difficulties in every situation, the kind which enables men to discern opportunity close at hand, for thousands fail to see opportunities almost within their grasp while they are industriously working with situations which under no possibility can be made to realize any substantial return.

Return to top

The Master Key develops Mental Power which means that others instinctively recognize that you are a person of force, of character - that they want to do what you want them to do; it means that you attract men and things to you; that you are what some people call "lucky", that "things come you way" that you have come into an understanding of the fundamental laws of Nature, and have put yourself in harmony with them; that you are in tune with Infinite; that you understand the law of attraction, the Natural laws of growth, and the Psychological laws on which all advantages in the social and business world rest.

Mental Power is creative power, it gives you the ability to create for yourself; it does not mean the ability to take something away from someone else. Nature never does things that way. Nature makes two blades for grass grow where one grew before, and Mind Power enables men to do the same thing.

The Master Key develops insight and sagacity, increased independence, the ability and disposition to be helpful. It destroys distrust, depression, fear, melancholia, and every form of lack limitation and weakness, including pain and disease; it awakens buried talents, supplies initiative, force, energy, vitality - it awakens an appreciation of the beautiful in Art, Literature and Science.

Return to top

It has changed the lives of thousands of men and women, by substituting definite principles for uncertain and hazy methods - and principles for the foundation upon which every system of efficiency must rest.

Elbert Gary, the chairman of the United States Steel Corporation, said "The services of advisors, instructors, efficiency experts in successful management are indispensable to most business enterprises of magnitude, but I deem the recognition and adoption of right principles vastly more importance."

The Master Key teaches right principles, and suggests methods for making a practical application of the principles; in that it differs from every other course of study. It teaches that the only possible value which can attach to any principle is in its application. Many read books, take home study courses, attend lectures all their lives without ever making any progress in demonstrating the value of the principles involved. The Master Key suggests methods by which the value of the principles taught may be demonstrated and put in actual practice in the daily experience.

Return to top

There is a change in the thought of the world. This change is silently transpiring in our midst, and is more important than any which the world has undergone since the downfall of Paganism.

The present revolution in the opinions of all classes of men, the highest and most cultured of men as well as those of the laboring class, stands unparalleled in the history of the world.

Science has of late made such vast discoveries, has revealed such an infinity of resources, has unveiled such enormous possibilities and such unsuspected forces, that scientific men more and more hesitate to affirm certain theories as established and indubitable or to deny certain other theories as absurd or impossible, and so a new civilization is being born; customs, creeds, and cruelty are passing; vision, faith and service are taking their place. The fetters of tradition are being melted off from humanity, and as the dross of materialism is being consumed, thought is being liberated and truth is rising full orbed before an astonished multitude.

Return to top

The whole world is on the eve of a new consciousness, a new power and a new consciousness, a new power and a new realization of the resources within the self. The last century saw the most magnificent material progress in history. The present century will produce the greatest progress in mental and spiritual power.

Physical Science has resolved matter into molecules, molecules into atoms, atoms into energy, and it has remained for Sir Ambrose Fleming, in an address before the Royal Institution, to resolve this energy into mind. He says: "In its ultimate essence, energy may be incomprehensible by us except as an exhibition of the direct operation of that which we call Mind or Will."

Let us see what are the most powerful forces in Nature. In the mineral world everything is solid and fixed. In the animal and vegetable kingdom it is in a state of flux, forever changing, always being created and recreated. In the atmosphere we find heat, light and energy. Each realm becomes finer and more spiritual as we pass from the visible to the invisible, from the coarse to the fine, from the low potentiality to high potentiality. When we reach the invisible we find energy in its purest and most volatile state.

Return to top

And as the most powerful forces of Nature are the invisible forces, so we find that the most powerful forces of man are his invisible forces, his spiritual force, and the only way in which the spiritual force can manifest is through the process of thinking. Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses, and thought is the only product of thinking.

Addition and subtraction are therefore spiritual transactions; reasoning is a spiritual process; ideas are spiritual conceptions; questions are spiritual searchlights and logic, argument and philosophy is spiritual machinery.

Every thought brings into action certain physical tissue, parts of the brain, nerve or muscle. This produces an actual physical change in the construction of the tissue. Therefore it is only necessary to have a certain number of thoughts on a given subject in order to bring about a complete change in the physical organization of a man.

Return to top

This is the process by which failure is changed to success. Thoughts of courage, power, inspiration, harmony, are substituted for thoughts of failure, despair, lack, limitation and discord, and as these thoughts take root, the physical tissue is changed and the individual sees life in a new light, old things have actually passed away, all things have become new, he is born again, this time born of the spirit, life has a new meaning for him, he is reconstructed and is filled with joy, confidence, hope, energy. He sees opportunities for success to which he was heretofore blind. He recognizes possibilities which before had no meaning for him. The thoughts of success with which he has been impregnated are radiated to those around him, and they in turn help him onward and upward; he attract to him new and successful associates, and this in turn changes his environment; so that by this simple exercise of thought, a man changes not only himself, but his environment, circumstances and conditions.

You will see, you must see, that we are at the dawn of a new day; that the possibilities are so wonderful, so fascinating, so limitless as to be almost bewildering. A century ago any man with a Gatling Gun could have annihilated a whole army equipped with the implements of warfare then in use. So it is at present. Any man with a knowledge of the possibilities contained in the Master Key has an inconceivable advantage over the multitude

And as the most powerful forces of Nature are the invisible forces, so we find that the most powerful forces of man are his invisible forces, his spiritual force, and the only way in which the spiritual force can manifest is through the process of thinking. Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses, and thought is the only product of thinking.

Addition and subtraction are therefore spiritual transactions; reasoning is a spiritual process; ideas are spiritual conceptions; questions are spiritual searchlights and logic, argument and philosophy is spiritual machinery.

Every thought brings into action certain physical tissue, parts of the brain, nerve or muscle. This produces an actual physical change in the construction of the tissue. Therefore it is only necessary to have a certain number of thoughts on a given subject in order to bring about a complete change in the physical organization of a man.

This is the process by which failure is changed to success. Thoughts of courage, power, inspiration, harmony, are substituted for thoughts of failure, despair, lack, limitation and discord, and as these thoughts take root, the physical tissue is changed and the individual sees life in a new light, old things have actually passed away, all things have become new, he is born again, this time born of the spirit, life has a new meaning for him, he is reconstructed and is filled with joy, confidence, hope, energy. He sees opportunities for success to which he was heretofore blind. He recognizes possibilities which before had no meaning for him. The thoughts of success with which he has been impregnated are radiated to those around him, and they in turn help him onward and upward; he attract to him new and successful associates, and this in turn changes his environment; so that by this simple exercise of thought, a man changes not only himself, but his environment, circumstances and conditions.

You will see, you must see, that we are at the dawn of a new day; that the possibilities are so wonderful, so fascinating, so limitless as to be almost bewildering. A century ago any man with a Gatling Gun could have annihilated a whole army equipped with the implements of warfare then in use. So it is at present. Any man with a knowledge of the possibilities contained in the Master Key has an inconceivable advantage over the multitude
