Week 13

Bits and pieces of Week 13…

Preface. It explains the law by which the thing pictured upon our mind eventually becomes our own.

[Audacious claim of the week.]

22. In the first place, we must put our knowledge into practice. Nothing can be accomplished in any other way. The athlete may read books and lessons on physical training all his life, but unless he begins to give out strength by actual work he will never receive any strength;

[I identify with this. I have been reading about Smalltalk, the computer language, for 15+ years. Lots of reading, precious little coding. Someday. I am not yet a competent Smalltalk programer.]

he will eventually get exactly what he gives; but he will have to give it first. It is exactly the same with us; we will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.

[I love you; I bless you. I am working on that habit. (see Week 10)]

23. Thought is a spiritual activity

[!!! I am reminded of the Bible story about Goliath. His last words were “Such things have never before entered into my head.”]

[Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). So faith is a substance, a thing. It has two parts: hope (a feeling) and things not seen (imagination, or thought). So, a thought linked to a feeling. Bingo! Thought is a spiritual activity because thought is faith.]

and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed;

[“Thought consciously, systematically, and constructively directed” seems to be Haanel’s code; the stuff by which the subconscious is programmed; compiled (aggregated), linked (what fires together wires together), executed (triggered), and manifested (displayed, or made real). I have a new language to program in: Self, the subconscious language.]

and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement.

Wow!

  4. Great Job on your press release. Feels good, doesn’t it, sharing at length as compared to honing a big idea into 400 words? Seeing ourselves in the future is a great way to aim! Here is where you can share at length how you feel about yourself in the future! Have fun! I can tell you really care! Getting this just the way you want is very satisfying! Keep it up! You’re #one in your book, right? 🙂
