Haanel 17-1 We are told that Man has dominion over all things; this dominion is established through Mind. Genesis 1:28
In reading Haanel Part Seventeen this week several things struck a cord especially 17-11.
17-11. Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.” Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached.
My thoughts on 17-11
Random thoughts do not change your life for the better, you have to know what you want & then focus on that desire. Repeat daily.
We must turn off the noise so that we may connect with God, Universal Mind. Be Brave. Be alone with yourself & God for a few minutes everyday.
Know that the Kingdom is not some place in the heavenlies that can only be accessed after death. The kingdom is what you create in your world within. Using the 7 Laws of the Mind, you create “the kingdom”. Now you may start adding to that kingdom, now you know what to add to the kingdom. Now you have manifested ‘the kingdom’.
Be excited about your life, your ideas. Go forward with your ideas. Do your work. Be diligent, be responsible & most of all be confident.
Enjoy The Journey-
