Week 12 has brought everything together for me. The exercises, sit, readings, recordings and blogging are all part of the whole. This week we are beginning to apply the knowledge in a very specific way, even though each exercise is a part of the application.
I have always heard that “Knowledge is Power” until this course. The “Application of Knowledge” is power. Part 12- Haanel states that “knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists in fertilizing the thought with a living purpose.” It also says, “you must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.” It became clear to me the power that Haanel is referring too. The power within, the Infinite, the Omnipotence.
This weeks exercise during the sit was to realize this power and get in touch with this power by uniting with the omnipotence. Realizing that if thought is creative energy, man is, because he/she thinks, if we center our mental force upon a specific thought, we can learn to align ourselves with the Divine which is the Universal Mind. Which is also Omnipresent.
I realized that we do not have to reach far because we are part of the omnipotent and omnipresent and therefore the power truly is within each of us. “You must first have the knowledge of your power.”Along with the knowledge of our power we can access this power through the “Law of Relaxation”, or the sits.
Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence. Focusing on a specific thought or desire puts the subconscious mind to work which is the “Law of Subconscious”- As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand-accessing a reservoir of infinite resources. Therefore, what we think about grows and manifests.
