Week 14 In Harmony With The Universal Mind

Connecting The Universal Mind With Our Consciousness

This week is one of celebration and reflection. It’s busy with all the preparations for Christmas, last minute shopping for gifts, turkeys, hams and all manner of traditional Holiday material. It’s a time when it should be much easier than usual to appreciate that we are all one with the Universal Mind. More on that later.

Managing to stick to my schedule and read Mandino, The Master Keys, my DMP, Service and Flash Cards, my POA, Press Release and so on has been a challenge. But persistence is one of my habits, so I succeeded.

It was a joy to have all of our immediate family home for Christmas. Having other relatives in for Christmas and New Years Dinner made for large, noisy and very enjoyable gatherings.

But all that concentrated intimacy and predictable reminiscing made me realize that I had not completely forgiven everyone as the Law of Forgiveness requires. Consequently, now as I recall that law after reading my DMP, I concentrate on complete forgiveness. Constant vigilance is also a good habit.

It was also Movie Week at MKMMA. I was most impressed with the movie Rudy and I wrote about it in another post. It’s highly reccomended so check out the post, find the movie and watch it. It’s a dramatization of the journey all of us are on as we experience the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.

All these movies very clearly illustrate how developing four tiny habits are the Master Key To Success. I explain how I think that works right here.

You want to know what a real “burning desire” looks like and how to add “real life and vitality” to that desire so it burns on despite the deluge of criticisms and “cold water” dumped on it from multiple sources?

Watch Rudy or any one of the other movies including October Sky, Door To Door, Wild or Cool Runnings.

It’s New Years Resolution Time

Given that it’s the end of the year and a time of new beginnings for many people, I’m sure that watching these movies will give impetus to many who traditionally get into New Years Resolutions mode at this time of years. And that’s good because the examples of perseverance and success will be positive motivators.

But I’m not making New Years Resolutions. You know and I know they are useless. I know they are also less than useless; they are damaging. Every time you set a resolution and don’t keep it you are training your mind to perpetuate the pain.

Changing your circumstances, whether that be “getting in shape”, losing 25 pounds, quitting smoking or whatever requires changing your mind and your habits. That does not happen with a simple resolution to do so on New Years Day.

What I am doing is a Complete Makeover. The Master Key Master Mind Alliance Experience is the vehicle whereby I change my life and find my real, inner self. The class will open again in September of 2016. Get on the list for early notification by clicking here.

Also please listen to The Strangest Secret, an audio by Earl Nightingale of Nightingale Connant. Earl Nightingale launched a personal development movement with this audio and the philosophy it espouses.


Download the audio** and please follow Earl’s instructions for the Thirty Day Exercise toward the end of the audio. Knowledge does not apply itself. Take this 30 day test. It will prepare you for your hero’s journey and if you are a New Years Resolution sort of person, it will show you how to actually successfully attain what you desire.

The Universal Mind Connection

Haanel reminds us again that the subconscious mind is the connection between our consciousness and The Universal Mind. Since the subconscious is under the control of our conscious mind, we all have a connection to infinite resources. Our potential is limited only by the limits we impose upon ourselves.

The conscious and subconscious are but two phases of action in connection with one mind. The relation of the subconscious to the conscious is quite analogous to that existing between a weather vane and the atmosphere.


The Law of Growth indicates what you think about grows and what you forget atrophies. Thought is creative so what you think about grows or manifests, whether good or bad, positive or negative. Mind does not care. It grows whatever is planted.

And Haanel says in 14 -25 that “Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.”

But it also follows that thought can be starved of the energy required for manifestation. Just give it no attention and it will die. What I forget atrophies in the same way as the plant which is not watered and nourished withers and dies.

And so in 14 -16 he says “All things have their origin in mind, and appearances are the result of thought. So that we see that things in themselves have no origin, permanency, or reality. Since they are produced by thought, they can be erased by thought.”

Universal mind source of powerThe Universal Substance from which all power, wisdom and intelligence originates is pure energy (14 -1). Science has established that electrons, being pure energy are the expression of the Universal Substance from which all things proceed (14 -7).

Further we know that electrons combine with mathematical precision to form atoms, then molecules, then compounds and eventually all that is the Universe (14 -8). In our bodies this agglomeration of electrons and the energy they represent manifest as cells, tissues, organs and all parts of our anatomy (14 -11).

What Turns The Switch To the “ON” Position?

So what is it that directs electrons to form atoms and then the cascade of higher levels of complexity? Haanel indicates the controller of the switch is Mind.

And he further points out in 14 -14 that “It is therefore apparent that there is mind in every atom of the body; this mind is negative mind, and the power of the individual to think makes him positive, so that he can control this negative mind. This is the scientific explanation for metaphysical healing, and will enable anyone to understand the principle upon which this remarkable phenomenon rests.”

To my mind this is the most exquisite example of a master mind alliance to be found anywhere. Consider what Haanel says in 14 -12:

“All these cells are moving for a common purpose and each one is not only a living organism, but has sufficient intelligence to enable it to perform its necessary duties. It is also endowed with sufficient intelligence to conserve the energies and perpetuate its own life. It must, therefore, secure sufficient nourishment and it has been found that it exercises choice in the selection of such nourishment.”

To me that’s the ultimate master mind alliance. What do you think? Make sense?

It does if you accept the idea that our environment, the conditions in which we find ourselves id controlled by the Infinite or Universal Mind. We have heretofore thought this power to be unexplainable and thus attributed to a power called God (14 -19).

And if you recognize and understand that the only difference between the subconscious and the Universal is one of degree, similar to the way a drop of water differs from the ocean, you will appreciate the power of Mind (14 -21).

And so in 14 -22 and 23 Haanel indicates:
“The subconscious mind being the connecting link between the Universal Mind and the conscious mind, is it not evident that the conscious mind can consciously suggest thoughts which the subconscious mind will put into action, and as the subconscious is one with the Universal, is it not evident that no limit can be placed upon its activities?”, and

“A scientific understanding of this principle will explain the wonderful results which are secured through the power of prayer.”

But again he emphasizes that thoughts “must be clear cut, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.”

Since knowledge does not apply itself our exercise this week is to really concentrate on harmony within and harmony with the Universal Mind. To me that means asking while ‘Seeking The Silence” for clear confirmation that my true desires are represented by my DMP while affirming “I am whole, perfect, strong, loving, harmonious and happy.”

I remember an old saying…”it’s all in your mind” that saying was meant as sort of an insult, so to speak…well those folks don’t know the half of how right they really were…Awesome post Terry.
