MKMMA Week 23

Something I read in the Week 21 Master Key has kept tugging at my mind, so I went back to read it today. It describes negative thought; what it is, and what it does in a very enlightening way. The following is paraphrased: Negative thought is the same as passive thought, and passive thought is dominated by appearances. Here’s what I found so interesting—that something as harmless as being passive could be termed as a negative thought and destructive thought! Power of Thought Positive Mental Attitude

Passively thinking about things as they appear seems very harmless, but it is obvious that’s not right at all. Instead, it creates more of that which we are focusing on- that which we already have, and thereby makes it impossible for a person to have that which they are wanting, and impossible for them to use the power of thought and a positive mental attitude to their advantage.
Another example of passive thought is day dreaming, which for me often turns into thinking about something I’m worried about or the things as they appear. I’ve been more conscious of that the last days, because I was doing my 15 minutes of silence sitting up in bed in the morning before I got up so I would make sure it would happen. However, it is much harder to make sure my thoughts don’t wander when I’m just waking up. The lessons we had early in the Master Key System Haanel wrote on holding our thought on one thing during our time was well warranted and I understand even more now why it is so important. By making sure I only entertain thoughts I choose on purpose, I can use the power of thought and a positive mental attitude to create what I desire. Being in awareness – catchingCreate Success, Positive Mental Attitude
myself  if  I’m passively thinking about something I don’t want is very important! I can then
choose to focus on the things I want instead. I can literally put walking feet on my brain
& what I think about!

In summary, passive thought is not harmless, and choosing in each moment what we think about is the thing we must do to create what we want with the power of thought and a positive mental attitude. I’m so grateful for this clear understanding of how important this is. It will keep me on task to catch myself and switch my thoughts to those that create success!
