Why I Do What I Do

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.

  1. Bill, I love to see Scripture quoted in your blog. We have just begun a very interesting journey. It’s going to be fun to see how it unfolds over the next 20 plus weeks.


  2. Nice, Bill! Yes, as I have been working with Fawn Chrisitanson for at least four years, her coaching principles engage the practices of understanding the language you use, then what you choose, paying close attention and being deliberate to execute your power and grace. It is so simple, but not always a practice. I love your blogging style…Nice job!


  3. Bill- A very insightful post on the wisdom in week 1. I was searching for some scripture to cement these ideas also, and found the perfect verse by reading your blog post.

    Thank you for sharing.



  4. Thank you Bill, for your comments. I too have been struggling with these principles, not wanting to have anything detract from the greatness of God, or His sovereignty or my need to utterly depend on Him and that I have no power outside of Him. Thank you for helping to make sense out of this in that context.


  5. I think I have a pack of dogs, lol. Love the mind pic. This whole concept is rattling cages right and left and maybe that is the purpose of it. Stay true to your own beliefs and it’s ok if they don’t match anyone elses. It’s about what brings you peace and harmony within yourself. Understanding and unifying our “two minds” is what I think they are saying will help bring us peace and harmony. Interesting to work thru with others and see how they think/feel about things. I’m liking this more and more already. “Peace be the journey”. : )
