This week the Master Keys Experience introduced a presentation of Wallace D. Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich. I had read this work several years ago and was quite impressed with the teachings. Now participating in the MKE, whenever I revisit a presentation, or book such as this, I find I’m reading and understanding it in a whole new dimension! I’m elated at how the messages are reinforcing and validating all that I’m learning in the Master Keys.
Wattles speaks of getting rich as a science. By this he means getting rich can be accomplished with scientific exactitude, if pursued in The Certain Way. What is The Certain Way?
- Form a clear and definite mental picture of what you want.
- Hold this mental image continually in your thoughts.
- Hold it with a fixed purpose to get what you want and the unwavering faith that you will receive what you want.
- Do every day all that can be done that day, taking care to do each act in a successful manner.
- Continually express deep feelings of gratitude.
- Impart to everyone the impression of increase, giving them a use value in excess of the cash value they receive.
And after reflecting on this a bit, I began seeing parallels to the Blueprint Builder and hearing the following phrases clearly echoed in The Certain Way.
“the dominating thoughts of my mind eventually reproduce themselves”
“the object of my Definite Major Purpose in life”
“demand of myself persistent, continuous action”
“any desire I persistently hold in my mind”
“will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it”
“clearly written down my DMP in life”
“I engage in no transaction which does not benefits all whom if affects”
“a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success”
“I induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others”
“I repeat it aloud once a day with full faith”
“I succeed by attracting to myself the forces I will to use and the cooperation of other people”
It’s exciting to see these parallels and understand that while the verbiage may differ, the core message is enduring truth.
