11. Are You Really a Temple?

What are “you”? Your body, eyes, fingerprints, DNA, the way you sound, the way you walk — all those things are uniquely you. Your personality is made up of countless characteristics, traits, habits. Nobody looks out and sees the world just like you do. Nobody comes to identical conclusions.

You are unique in all these things, but they are not the entire “I.” The “I” is something that is higher than your body and mind.

When you say, “I think” or “I go,” who is the “I” that compels your thoughts and body forward? The source of this “I” is spiritual and your tremendous inherent power will dawn on you when you realize the true source and nature of the “I.”

Humans are in touch with two worlds and we know very little about either one. The outer world of objects reaches into infinity, but it is only measurable up to the point that our five senses can perceive it. The universe does not stop at the edge of what we can measure. Radio waves don’t stop at the edge the radio dial. The sound vibrations continue past the point where technology leaves off. Likewise, the “I” continues on past the edge of perception.

The vast outer world that we can measure is just a tiny pinprick in the  unseen universe. The infinite inner world begins just on the other side of what we usually perceive.

Vibrations of light and sound my be too fast or too slow for our five senses to register, but they still exist as energy. This energy can be defined as infinite, except that is a bit deceiving because time and space are constructs we use to make sense of our physical world.

Philosophers use the term Omni to try to explain the breadth of the universal intelligence that is everywhere and everything always: omnipresent, omniscient. Even the definition of Omni uses concepts of time and space, because our physical minds are locked into those constructs. We don’t have any words or pictures to accurately describe the Divine.

Similarly, we don’t have any words or pictures to accurately describe the true “I.” All we can say is that we are part of infinite and eternal energy from which all things proceed.

Our bodies and minds are comprised of this infinite and eternal energy in every cell, atom, electron, vibration. The eternal energy is a living and creating intelligence.

Jesus said: “Don’t you know you are temples of the living God?”

When you grasp this and dwell on it, you will feel humble and honored to be alive and aware, and sacredly powerful.

The Third Meditation

Relax your body and focus on the here and now. Pay attention to any tense places and relax them. Realize that your body is a temple for the Living Creator. Realize the Creator is the magnetism that holds your atoms together. Breathe in and infuse your temple with the presence of the Creator. Stay focused on this one thought as long as you can. Finish your meditation by inhibiting thought and sitting with your mind still.

9. Get to Know the Sun in Your Body

Blocking the internal sun is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

The Solar Plexus

A plexus is an intricate network of nerves. The one behind your stomach is called “solar” because of the many nerves that radiate out from it. And, like the sun, this Solar Plexus is a central distribution point from which the energy of your body is constantly generating. This energy is real, and like the sun in the sky, it is incredibly powerful and crucial to your life.

The energy that radiates from your Solar Plexus is thrown off in the atmosphere that envelopes your body. When this radiation is strong, a person seems “magnetic.” Others are attracted to them, it feels good to be around them. Their presence alone will often soothe troubled minds.

The Cause of Every Ill

When the Solar Plexus radiation becomes blocked for any reason — such as worry, guilt, and fear — the life energy from the Divine Force is diminished or blocked. This is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

Physical, because your internal sun is no longer generating enough energy to vitalize the body. Mental, because because your two minds rely on the Sympathetic Nervous System to function smoothly. Environmental because the connection of your subconscious mind with the Sacred Power of the Universal Mind mind is interrupted.

Life is expressive and it is our privilege to express ourselves harmoniously and constructively. Sorry, misery, unhappiness, disease, and poverty are effects. You are the only one who can identify and eliminate their causes. Rise above and beyond all limitations of any kind by paying careful attention to what you are thinking. What is going in and and what is coming out of your mind?  Will yourself to consciously replace negative thoughts that oppress you with ideas that bring freedom and harmony.

The Second Meditation

Sit still, close your eyes, and relax your entire body. Is your solar plexus relaxed or does it feel “nervous?” Relax your conscious mind by inhibiting thought and lingering in the present moment. You will still get messages from your senses and make conclusions about them, because that is part of your automatic survival mechanism. You are safe in this moment. Just relax into the present and rest your mind. Next, visualize your solar plexus as a bright sun that radiates healing warmth and comfort.

When you notice that your mind has wandered, make a mental sweep of your body, relaxing any tense areas that have developed. End the meditation by clearing your mind of daydreams, plans, reasoning. Simply rest in the silence.

5. Repetition Moves You Forward

Once you start doing this and see the results, you will wonder why you put it off. You will be pleasantly surprised. Source is eager to channel the creative force through you when you are willing and diligent with your exercises. You will be rewarded with many times more benefits than the effort you put in.

Are you getting what you desire from life? Are people who need your services coming along and providing opportunities you need to meet your goals? If not, consider this. Desire is important, but it must be activated by focused attitude and action. Desire alone is futile.

Mixed signals you broadcast will return mixed results. Unruly thinking scatters the power you need to make your desires real.

The Master Key Exercises

The Master Key provides gentle mental exercises that slowly strengthen your thinking muscles so you can stay focused and achieve your goals. When you proceed slowly and methodically, the benefits are sure to follow because of the Universal law of Cause and Effect.

Repetition is Your Friend

Like playing an instrument, learning a language, or riding a bicycle, the only way to mastery is by willing yourself to practice regularly. Do the Master Key exercises repeatedly so they become second nature.

When you work out, your muscles become powerful. You do not create the muscles. That part is done for you by the sympathetic nervous system which acts on instructions sent through the cerebro-spinal nervous system by your conscious mind. It is the same with exercises that focus your thought and strengthen your mind.

Desire alone will not cause your muscles to grow stronger. All you can do is repeat the movement. Mixed signals scatter the will to put in the effort required.

Source is eager to channel creative Sacred Power through willing beings. Repeating the Master Key exercises will result in more benefits than the effort you put in. So, even when the exercises seem difficult or next to impossible, keep trying so you can reap the benefits.

The Second Meditation

Get comfortable and sit completely still for at least 15 minutes.Relax every tense muscle. Now you will attempt to gain control of the random thoughts that constantly run through your brain. With eyes closed, focus on a spot in front of your face and observe what you “see”. Stay in that frame of mind as long as possible. Most people find this difficult to do for more than a few seconds. Keep trying until you are able to hold your mind in the present moment longer than you have before.

 

 

 

 

2. Notice Your Power

It is true that you have power at your fingertips that most people completely ignore. Learn how to use it, and you will find your hopes and dreams being fulfilled. The power is there freely for everyone and anyone to use. When you realize how fantastic it is, you might wonder why you waited so long to appreciate it.

You Operate in Two Worlds

To harness the power, you have to know yourself better. Your body seems solid and your mind seems to be encased in it. But neither one is true. Your body is matter, which is energy. And your thoughts are energy. Energy vibrates. Your entire being is vibrating energy.

You are very familiar with the solid person. Taking time each day to sit quietly and be in awe of your vibrating energy will open your mind and improve your outlook.

The First Meditation

Sit comfortably still for 15 minutes or more in the Egyptian style, feet flat on the ground, hands on lap. Relax every muscle, release every tension. Let your thoughts wander, but bring them back to consciously relaxing your body. Breathe deep or shallow — whatever helps you relax. Consider that you are not really solid, but that you are vibrating energy.
