“The possibilities of thought training are infinite, its consequence eternal, and yet few take the pains to direct their thinking into channels that will do them good, but instead leave all to chance” ~ Marden. Before we go further lets define the word power “the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality”. We are all embedded with the ability and quality to do something. You and I have been equipped with the power to do something be it good or bad. No one on this earth can claim to have no ability to do anything you have the ability.
Since all human beings have the ability and quality to do something one would then expect all of us to lead very successful and fulfilling lives. However, this is not to be, the difference lies in knowing the secret of power and the source of it; the use and application of this power; the realization of power. In this article I try and outline the secret and source of power.
The source of power
The question to ask then is what is the source of this power? You will get the idea of the source of power as you go along reading. I now understand that the mind and the attitude of it are the most important elements of success and personal development. What your mind thinks is what you eventually become. In other words you are in your current position because of the thoughts you entertained.
The thoughts you harbour in your mind are key to your success. If you want to make lots money, have the money consciousness. The ability to eliminate imperfect conditions depends upon mental action, and mental action depends upon consciousness of power; therefore, the more conscious we become of our unity with the source of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition.
This mental attitude is our personality and is composed of the thoughts which we have been creating in our own mind; therefore, if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life. This however, is no easy matter, but with persistent effort it may be accomplished.
The source of all this power is the universal mind, from which all things proceed and which is one and invisible.
The secret of power
Well you have known the source of power the next step is to learn the secret of power. You may know the source but now you need to learn how to harness it. Like I always say knowledge without action is useless. You need to be conscious of power, because whatever we become conscious of is invariably manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression. Put simply your thoughts are transmuted into reality. Have you ever realized that even the earth was first a thought according to the bible? “In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth”. Correct me if I am wrong but, I believe that GOD thought and visualized what the earth would like be before creating it.
The secret of power is in the consciousness of it. The secret of success is one of the methods of organizing victory, one of the accomplishments of the Master-Mind. He thinks big thoughts and the creative energies of mind find no more difficulty in handling large situations, than small ones. Mind is just as much present in the infinitely large as in the infinitely small.
This is probably one of the most difficult topics I have written this far. I can only hope and pray that I have answered some of your questions and motivated you read even more. There is more stuff to read on this blog and I would encourage you to browse what topics may interest you. Bye for now remember to “standout tall and counted”.
