The first week of the Master Mind Lesson #1 I had some difficulty getting into it. It wasn’t jelling for me and my mind was a bit fuzzy reading it. I think it was my old blueprint speaking to me and questioning me if I wanted more power and can I even remember what my dreams were when I was young? I also had a struggle with the idea of a Universal Mind.
When I am able to substitute God for the Universal Mind it began to make more sense. When I see God as the life principle of every atom and then I seek to carry out His Purpose for why He created me.
On reading Lesson 2 in week 2 is when I had another WOW! moment. The Bible in Romans 7:15 Paul says: “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, and what I hate I do.” I always described this as 2 dogs fighting within us, and the dog that wins is the dog we feed. This lesson on the difference between the conscious and subconscious mind explains very clearly what Paul was talking about in the Bible. If we want to change what we DO (our Outer World) we have to work on the Inner World (our subconscious mind).
The idea of the conscious mind being the “watchman at the gate” of the subconscious mind is a great description of how we can change. We need to train our conscious mind to prevent errors from entering our subconscious mind. It is the errors which cause worry, fear, hate, selfishness and all kinds of evil in our life.
What we DO becomes our HABITS which forms our Character (who we ARE). If we want to improve who we are we have to change what we BELIEVE, FEEL and THINK. To do this we must change our subconscious mind and have our conscious mind become the watchman at the gate.
I can hardly wait for the next lessons to see how to accomplish this.
