Approaching commencement of the Master Key experience, I wanted to document and reflect on what I perceive as my major take-aways. As Mark points out, commencement is not an end, but rather a beginning! I’ve learned so much, and still have much to process, but this week the silence and the “sits” have revealed several things. In fact, it was no coincidence that they were perfectly presented and well-timed this week in Chapter 24 of the Master Key.
The Truth shall make you free. The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete; the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease.” (24-18)
I have been given a gift; the power and ability to think. All mind is one mind and all conditions are thought creations and therefore entirely mental. The Universal Mind is the totality of all mind which is in existence. (24-26) Every form of concentration, forming Mental Images, Argument, and Autosuggestion are all simply methods by which you are enabled to realize the Truth. (24-12)
I can train my mind to think correctly (truthfully). To train the mind to see Truth only is to express true conditions only, our ability to do this will be an indication as to the progress we are making. (24-17) If you see only the incomplete, the imperfect, the relative, the limited, these conditions will manifest in your life: but, if you train your mind to see and realize the spiritual ego, the “I” which is forever perfect and complete, harmonious; wholesome, and healthful conditions only will be manifested. (24-24)
I am spirit; I am creative; I am a channel of Spiritual benefits to myself and others. Now, the only activity which the spirit possesses is the power to think. Therefore, thought must be creative, because spirit is creative. This creative power is impersonal and your ability to think is your ability to control it and make use of it for the benefit of yourself and others. (24-29)
I possess the Master Key. When the truth of this statement is realized, understood, and appreciated, you will have come into possession of the Master Key, but remember that only those who are wise enough to understand, broad enough to weigh the evidence, firm enough to follow their own judgment, and strong enough to make the sacrifice exacted, may enter and partake. (24-30)
And lastly, Truth manifests in action. Truth is not the result of logical training or of experimentation, or even of observation; it is the product of a developed consciousness. Your life and your actions and your influence in the world will depend upon the degree of truth which you are enabled to perceive, for the truth will not manifest in creeds, but in conduct. (24-19)
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy. I always keep my promises.
