By now you will know some things:
- You go in the direction of your dominant thought.
- Worry and fear and hate are thoughts.
- If you want to go in the direction of your vision, you need to do three things constantly. 1. Denials. 2. Affirmations 3. Visualisations. (We call this mobile meditations)
- Best you know what you want so you can do 3.
- Your thoughts (denials, affirmations and visualisations) precede every action and therefore are what is called “your behaviour in the making.”
- There are negative thoughts but your Willpower can choose not to give them weight.
- There are positive.
- A wise person knows there’s a balance but chooses to focus on the positive
- An immature person of weak character thinks there is no balance and either focusses on positive (elation) or negative (depression).
The memory area of the mind we call the subconscious mind. We will call it subconscious in order to distinguish it from the subliminal mind of creation, intuition, and inspiration. And also to distinguish it from the objective or conscious mind which thinks that it thinks. So there are three layers of the mind:
- Objective, Sensory or Surface Mind
- Subconscious or Memory Mind – Autopilot
- Subliminal or Directed Mind.
This subdivision is not orthodox according to the ordinary teachings of psychology. The usual practice is to term the whole of the submerged mind (areas 2 and 3) the subconscious. That is not correct. If we think for a moment, it will be apparent. The entire subliminal mind acts only according to instruction and instinct. Thoughts and commands flow from the seat of the Will (visualisation) through the conscious mind (affirmation) down into the subliminal mind (manifestation) and are immediately acted upon. The subconscious mind however, is a blind intelligence. It cannot reason – it can only remember, it can cause action – but it cannot think plan or reason.
With the Subliminal mind we have a mind within us that can inspire, create, and bring forth most wonderful thoughts. A mind which can solve our most complicated problems, that can guide us through the most difficult situations – if we will trust it. This cannot be the subconscious mind because this is a blind intelligence acting only upon memory, suggestion and animal instinct. Therefore there must be a mind or mind other than the subconscious, and this I have termed, for want of a better word, the subliminal.
The subliminal mind is a kind of sleepy giant, or slumbering volcano. It only requires arousing to cause it to manifest extraordinary power.
It is a vast and wonderful intelligence, so wonderful that our consciousness cannot form any conception of its wonders. All that we know is that this wonderful centre of life and action is far above our understanding as our own consciousness is beyond comprehension of a beetle.
Yet, this subliminal mind of ours is subject to our Will and guidance. Within us is this wonderful power – the most infinite intelligence; yet, its use and control, are in our own hands.
To us is given the ability to govern a power whose extent we cannot gauge, to direct an intelligence so great that it is impossible for us to grasp its full significance.
The subliminal mind is the centre of all action. It is by this mind that everything that we do is accomplished.
It is the personification of tireless energy. It works constantly, it never sleeps; for while we sleep the subliminal mind is busily engaged in repairing and rebuilding the body.
Whatever thought we allow to pass into the subliminal mind is translated into action. This is why a thought has been described as “an action in the process of becoming born.“
The great lesson for you, my student, to learn, is this: that if the subliminal mind translates each thought into action, then thought control is one of the greatest unknown facts of life. If you possess the power to control your thoughts (the ability), you have at once the power to control your actions (please differentiate subconscious animal instincts from actions). If you can control your actions what a life of possibility opens before you!
One of the principal courses of failure in life is due to the inability to control thoughts. Wrong thoughts reach the subliminal mind, these are translated into wrong actions and these bring failure and disaster in their path.
Thoughts or suggestions not only originate within your conscious, rational thinking mind, they are also received from without. Like a wifi which receives and broadcasts messages through vibrations in the ether, so does the human mind receive impressions from without. I call this the COSMIC WIFI. We communicate by thoughts and feelings alone, much stronger than anyone expects, and long before we act or speak on them.
Thoughts are as real and as important to success, happiness, achievement and fulfilment as any action. Thoughts alone are entities, they have form and substance and are preserved forever. Thoughts impinge upon your consciousness and the consciousness of others (cosmic wifi) and unless you are able to reject them they will enter the subliminal mind and bring action in your life and dictate behaviour.
Every successful person saw themselves successful long before they achieved it. Every divorcee worried their relationship would end, and therefore caused its end. Every champion saw themselves overcoming massive challenge to endure long before the game and every great musician saw their divine nature and capacity for composing music long before it happened. Very often this seeing is in spite of parents claustrophobic expectations but at the clear mandate of the grandparent.
If therefore the thought be bad, then bad will result, if the thought is of weakness then failure will follow, you cannot prevent the action once you have entertained the thought. It becomes an avalanche.
In the same way if you entertain a good thought, a success action will result. If thoughts of success and power are dwelt upon, then success and power to accomplish will be manifested in your life, and circumstances. It is this that rules your life, therefore if you manage, control, govern, master your thoughts, you control your life.
Suggestions meet you at every turn. Kind friends with the best of motives “suggest“ ill health to you when they remark ”oh you look a bit pale” or “are you ok? They are well meant remarks of “how you look unwell“ but they send a suggestion of sickness to your subliminal mind, which later manifests itself in real sickness in the body.
Articles in your daily paper on diet, Covid, and other topics again suggest illness to you; even the advertisement suggesting that you may have kidney disease or worse, and that to save your life it is necessary for you to take certain tablets or pills. Advertisements in newspapers and online do their best to suggest evil to you. The podcasts and blogs are full of the “fear it” side of life. They exaggerate every opportunity to display bad things and pain. If the same journalist in the newspaper or online news resist temptation and instead does something good, no notice is ever taken of their article. Therefore social media and news do not cause an entirely false presentation of life, they feed the minds of those who hunger for the negative to validate their fear and negative thinking about life. The press does not close its eyes to the good and presents the bad/evil – no, the press suggests evil to you, because that is what you want, and it is not watching the negative news that will produce evil in your life, it is the appetite for it. Even without the negative news feed, the negative or fearful person will find more things to fear and be negative about. And they become a beacon to you if they are your partner or friend.
For every bad deed reported in the newspaper or in social media, 1000 good actions go unrecorded. The world is full of great, amazing, inspirational, beautiful actions and gracious thoughts, and they can be seen and realise by those who look for them. But most people do not aspire to open the news and read how great things are.
Therefore, be very careful what news you watch what media and social media you pay attention to and what you read and how you read them. It may be feeding a need in you to fill yourself with the dark, half truth, negative and fear driven expectations of your own life. Just waiting for a disaster to happen.
Although it is wise to avoid reading about the evil, steamy, crooked and dark side of life; it is also wise to acknowledge the existence of it, and instead, look for the good and you will find it. When reading your social media or news devote your attention to the large things, those which will go down in history. Avoid that which is mean and petty – that will you avoid unwholesome and dangerous infection of your conscious and therefore subliminal mind and consequent behaviour.
Testimony to how easy we are to influence from the outside is the new job in the world called an “influencer.” This person who emulates who people want to be, in their sublime mind, demonstrates the use of certain products that associate with that aspiration. It is not really an “influencer” but more a “reflector” who outwardly demonstrates what the subliminal mind wants to achieve. The subliminal mind is only operating on information it has received from the conscious mind. Therefore, influencers are revealing what already exists, rather than causing anything new. The idea of associating a product with that ambition is not new. Tribal women have adorned their bodies with all manner of things to associate fertility, power, sexuality, superiority and sacredness forever. If you go into the Himalayas you will see sherpa women with traditional Tibetan clothes with $100,000 necklaces representing pride in their ancestors. Associations include statues of Jesus, Buddha, symbols like the star of David and more. So, product associations with ambitions are not new. As mentioned, the cost of the tribal traditional Tibetan Buddhist necklaces are more than the cost of a good Himalayan home. Money, success, fancy cars, electric cars, good handbags and certain airlines are just a modern expression of a an ancient awareness, your environment reflects your ambition. You are, in that way, not “influenced” but rather “revealed.” By influencers. They are your modern gurus!!!!
If you believe that life, or iPads for kids, or beach umbrellas or G-string bikini’s are an unloving thing you will find proof of it in conversations with hand picked friends of like mind and equally reject as friends those who do not agree. You will blame the social media but do not blame the media. WHAT YOU JUDGE YOU BREED, ATTRACT OR BECOME.
You might also suggest that a congregation in a religious centre might be influenced by the focus of the leader but they are chicks hungry for what is preached. Otherwise they would not attend. When that preaching is for evil it is because hate exists in the attendee the preacher is not the cause just the agglomerator of like minds into a crowd that endorses and enables hate.
Likewise, when there is an office collective that describes others with sexism, racism and cruelty to make out the world as a vile place, that individual did not randomly arrive at the incident innocently as they will make out. They were, instead, seeking proof and validation of pre existing thoughts. There must be a belief in the victim before the victim is recognised, they both attracted and sought, the object of their judgement and this is where you must become accountable. Changing your thinking rather than blaming so called “influencers” such as iPads, television, media, preachers, religions, bosses, individuals for the negative experiences of your life.
There are those who will read this and take it to others to validate their existing judgements. They will seek opinions until they find an equally enabling dissatisfaction through the “influence” of others. If anyone disagrees with their judgement they will seek another opinion, and another, and another until their judgements, belief that the world is an ugly place for their “kind” and be enabled, validated in staying in their stance.
We are quick to blame those who create movies and online portrayals of accidents and things going wrong as if this is a real insight to life‘s truth. Blaming an iPad for a child not wanting to communicate with family. It may be wiser to suggest that the child prefers a world of collaboration, aspires to a world of love and collaboration, even in games on the Ipad, rather than be immersed in the ugly bullying of a mother or father who demands respect rather than earns it.
Do not believe these wicked suggestions that come from blame and negative views. Life is a gracious and lovely thing. It is full of beauty and love and peace and happiness. Life is what we make it, we can make it sublime or we can make it savour hell. It is in our own hands. Therefore be observant of what you read, be mindful of what you watch on television, be aware of what do you subscribe to on social media and most importantly be observant to how you interact with other people. This is a great insight as to your directive and demands sent to your subliminal mind. What you find repulsive you will attract. What you find attractive you wish to become. But in trying to find happiness or success by the association with those who want only peace, love and happiness in the world, you are blinded and can only hold onto your opinions, success and happiness does not come from half truth. For it does not exist.
Habits are sometimes hard to break. So, it is wise to avoid things that do not present life in a joyous and optimistic way. Avoid low class scrappy reading. Avoid books that describe illness. Avoid books that are trendy and coming up with all sorts of statistics that have not been researched properly. Your mind can be “influenced” by anything you choose and it is wise to choose what influences your mind wisely. Read material that has stood the test of time. Read the Universal Laws of Nature. Read the beautiful poems of great artists and enjoy the humour of genius satirists.
Seek the beautiful, the noble, the true, in your reading and social media and television viewing and in your fellow human beings, and you will find them and be richly blessed and rewarded. Over time you will begin to seek the good and deny the bad.
“How“ you might ask, “can I escape all this harmful suggestion? I am conscious that there is evil in the world and in my life. I do not know what to expect next. How then can I get rid of evil and avoid all those harmful suggestions that impinge upon my consciousness from thousands of different sources?“
First of all I want you to understand that your life consists only of that which is in your mind. Your world also is really nothing more than a reflection of your own mind and what is in your mind. It is because of this that to people in precisely the same circumstances will each find life in the world very different. One will see life with great joy and so much cause for thankfulness and the other may experience only unhappiness and disappointment. The difference is not in circumstances but in the mind. The mind is the real thing, the world is transient and fleeting, and has, philosophically speaking, no real existence, except how the mind transcribes it.
The natural or “objective mind“ view of life and the world is almost always the exact opposite of what is real, true and fact. The visible world is it in an inverted reflection of the real world. If then it is inverted, it is natural, until our inner eyes are open to the truth, for us to see things as the exact opposite of what they really are. Therefore it is not surprising to find that, whereas the mortal or animal mind of the senses, thinks the world is the real thing and the mind only a shadow.
Such being the case then only thing that really matters is what is in the mind or what is not in the mind. If we have a belief in evil, and thoughts of evil, in our mind then we have evil in our life, we search for it, try to avoid it, worry about it and subsequently find evidence of it. If, however, we can cast the thought of, and belief in, evil, out of our mind then it will cease to appear in our life.
In our thinking we are wise to raise ourselves above the sensuous life and deny evil, poverty, failure, pain, sickness, unhappiness or whatever our trouble may be, we kill the thought which is the cause of all our troubles. Then whatever we affirm will take its place.
If we deny “stress“ then we follow by affirming “balance, centred, calm.“ When we deny poverty, then we must immediately replace that thought and affirm prosperity and affluence. By denials we can take out all the evil, dark, fear and worry out of our lives and build up in their place by means of affirmations: perfect good, success, affluence, happiness, health, love, peace and courage.
Everything being in the mind, dives as instruction to the subliminal mind then everything that is taken out of the mind is taken out of life, and everything is put into the mind, dives as instruction to the subliminal mind, comes into life.
Therefore it is possible with mechanical accuracy and certainty to recreate the life, to cast out all the undesirable and to build up in its place only the beautiful, the good the true.
Life is what we make it. We can make it like heaven itself, full to the brim with all that is good and beautiful, or we can turn it into a perfect hell. Therefore do not accept the suggestions of those, who having failed in life, proceed to call it hard. We can make life a continual joy, if we create a heaven with innocence by the quality of our thinking and mental processes. All that we see in life, all that we experience, even life itself, is but the outward expression of the life within. The life within and without is built by our thinking.
