LESSON 1
 
The Master Key System has altered the path of countless lives
since it was first published in 1912. And, with the advent
of the internet, it is now transforming lives across the
globe on an accelerating basis.

Because I've read this book so many times over my life, almost
to the point of memorizing every part of it, I hope you'll
consider me qualified to give you a little bit of advice
about it before you get started...

Most importantly...go slowly - VERY slowly.

There will be a great temptation to rush through this book and
read multiple parts per week, instead of just one.

There will be a great temptation to ignore sentences you
don't quite understand instead of re-reading them again.

There will be a great temptation to skip the study questions
at the end of each lesson.

But most of all, there will be a HUGE temptation to avoid
doing the weekly exercises.

If you can resist these temptations, a new world awaits you...a
world of joy, power and abundance. It is a world for which
there are truly no words to do it justice. Once you have
experienced it, you will never want to go back.

So I strongly urge you to treat your study of The Master Key
System with the utmost seriousness.

This is not just a book, this is a life-changing
experience...IF you let it.

I promise you that everything you are looking for in life
lies within these pages but it's up to YOU to unlock the secrets.

That's just the way the Universe works. We can only show you
a path - it's ultimately your choice whether you wish to
see what lies at the end of it.

So, I urge you again...take it slowly and take it seriously.

You might even find it helpful to study with friends (whether
online or offline) so that you can keep each other motivated
to carry on going. Just tell them where the sign-up page is
and we'll do the rest.

By the way, your lessons will always be sent on the same day
each week so if today is generally not a good day for you to
study, I suggest you leave this email list now using the link at
the bottom of this email. Then simply sign up again on the day that
is best for you.

One last thing, the emails from this list are only about The
Master Key System course and nothing else.

So if you want to know when we put more free metaphysical
books on our main PsiTek website, please sign up separately for
our announcements mailing list.

If you're interested, sign up now at the link below before you
forget, and then come back here.

THE MASTER KEY SYSTEM - PART 1

To read this part online instead, click here:
=> http://www.psitek.net/pages/PsiTekTMKS3.html

It is my privilege to enclose herewith Part One of The Master
Key System. Would you bring into your life more power? Get the
power consciousness. More health? Get the health consciousness.
More happiness? Get the happiness consciousness. Live the
spirit of these things until they become yours by right. It will
then become impossible to keep them from you. The things of the
world are fluid to a power within man by which he rules them.

You need not acquire this power. You already have it. But you
want to understand it; you want to use it; you want to control
it; you want to impregnate yourself with it, so that you can go
forward and carry the world before you.

Day by day as you go on and on, as you gain momentum, as your
inspiration deepens, as your plans crystallize, as you gain
understanding, you will come to realize that this world is no
dead pile of stones and timber, but that it is a living thing!
It is made up of the beating hearts of humanity. It is a thing
of life and beauty.

It is evident that it requires understanding to work with
material of this description, but those who come into this
understanding, are inspired by a new light, a new force, they
gain confidence and greater power each day, they realize their
hopes and their dreams come true, life has a deeper, fuller,
clearer meaning than before.

And, now, Part One.

PART ONE

1. That much gathers more is true on every plane of existence
and that loss leads to greater loss is equally true.

2. Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all
experiences in life are the result of our habitual or
predominant mental attitude.

3. The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think.
Therefore, the secret of all power, all achievement and all
possession depends upon our method of thinking.

4. This is true because we must "be" before we can "do," and we
can "do" only to the extent which we "are," and what we "are"
depends upon what we "think."

5. We cannot express powers that we do not possess. The only
way by which we may secure possession of power is to become
conscious of power, and we can never become conscious of power
until we learn that all power is from within.

6. There is a world within €“ a world of thought and feeling
and power; of light and life and beauty and, although
invisible, its forces are mighty.

7. The world within is governed by mind. When we discover this
world we shall find the solution for every problem, the cause
for every effect; and since the world within is subject to our
control, all laws of power and possession are also within our
control.

8. The world without is a reflection of the world within. What
appears without is what has been found within. In the world
within may be found infinite Wisdom, infinite Power, infinite
Supply of all that is necessary, waiting for unfoldment,
development and expression. If we recognize these
potentialities in the world within they will take form in the
world without.

9. Harmony in the world within will be reflected in the world
without by harmonious conditions, agreeable surroundings, the
best of everything. It is the foundation of health and a
necessary essential to all greatness, all power, all
attainment, all achievement and all success.

10. Harmony in the world within means the ability to control
our thoughts, and to determine for ourselves how any experience
is to affect us.

11. Harmony in the world within results in optimism and
affluence; affluence within results in affluence without.

12. The world without reflects the circumstances and the
conditions of the consciousness within.

13. If we find wisdom in the world within, we shall have the
understanding to discern the marvelous possibilities that are
latent in this world within, and we shall be given the power to
make these possibilities manifest in the world without.

14. As we become conscious of the wisdom in the world within,
we mentally take possession of this wisdom, and by taking
mental possession we come into actual possession of the power and
wisdom necessary to bring into manifestation the essentials
necessary for our most complete and harmonious development.

15. The world within is the practical world in which the men
and women of power generate courage, hope, enthusiasm,
confidence, trust and faith, by which they are given the fine
intelligence to see the vision and the practical skill to make
the vision real.

16. Life is an unfoldment, not accretion. What comes to us in
the world without is what we already possess in the world
within.

17. All possession is based on consciousness. All gain is the
result of an accumulative consciousness. All loss is the result
of a scattering consciousness.

18. Mental efficiency is contingent upon harmony; discord means
confusion; therefore, he who would acquire power must be in
harmony with Natural Law.

19. We are related to the world without by the objective mind.
The brain is the organ of this mind and the cerebro-spinal
system of nerves puts us in conscious communication with every
part of the body. This system of nerves responds to every
sensation of light, heat, odor, sound and taste.

20. When this mind thinks correctly, when it understands the
truth, when the thoughts sent through the cerebro-spinal
nervous system to the body are constructive, these sensations
are pleasant, harmonious.

21. The result is that we build strength, vitality and all
constructive forces into our body, but it is through this same
objective mind that all distress, sickness, lack, limitation
and every form of discord and inharmony is admitted to our
lives. It is therefore through the objective mind, by wrong thinking,
that we are related to all destructive forces.

22. We are related to the world within by the subconscious
mind. The solar plexus is the organ of this mind; the
sympathetic system of nerves presides over all subjective
sensations, such as joy, fear, love, emotion, respiration,
imagination and all other subconscious phenomena. It is through the
subconscious that we are connected with the Universal Mind and
brought into relation with the Infinite constructive forces
of the Universe.


23. It is the coordination of these two centers of our being,
and the understanding of their functions, which is the great
secret of life. With this knowledge we can bring the objective
and subjective minds into conscious cooperation and thus
coordinate the finite and the infinite. Our future is entirely
within our own control. It is not at the mercy of any
capricious or uncertain external power.

24. All agree that there is but one Principle or Consciousness
pervading the entire Universe, occupying all space, and being
essentially the same in kind at every point of its presence. It
is all powerful, all wisdom and always present. All thoughts
and things are within Itself. It is all in all.

25. There is but one consciousness in the universe able to
think; and when it thinks, its thoughts become objective things
to it. As this Consciousness is omnipresent, it must be present
within every individual; each individual must be a manifestation
of that Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Consciousness.

26. As there is only one Consciousness in the Universe that is
able to think it necessarily follows that your consciousness is
identical with the Universal Consciousness, or, in other words,
all mind is one mind. There is no dodging this conclusion.

27. The consciousness that focuses in your brain cells is the
same consciousness which focuses in the brain cells of every
other individual. Each individual is but the individualization
of the Universal, the Cosmic Mind.

28. The Universal Mind is static or potential energy; it simply
is; it can manifest only through the individual, and the
individual can manifest only through the Universal. They are
one.

29. The ability of the individual to think is his ability to
act on the Universal and bring it into manifestation. Human
consciousness consists only in the ability of man to think.
Mind in itself is believed to be a subtle form of static
energy, from which arises the activities called 'thought', which is
the dynamic phase of mind. Mind is static energy, thought is
dynamic energy - the two phases of the same thing. Thought is
therefore the vibratory force formed by converting static mind into
dynamic mind.

30. As the sum of all attributes are contained in the Universal
Mind, which is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, these
attributes must be present at all times in their potential form
in every individual. Therefore, when the individual thinks, the
thought is compelled by its nature to embody itself in an
objectivity or condition which will correspond with its origin.


31. Every thought therefore is a cause and every condition an
effect; for this reason it is absolutely essential that you
control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable
conditions.

32. All power is from within, and is absolutely under your
control; it comes through exact knowledge and by the voluntary
exercises of exact principles.

33. It should be plain that when you acquire a thorough
understanding of this law, and are able to control your thought
processes, you can apply it to any condition; in other words,
you will have come into conscious cooperation with Omnipotent
law which is the fundamental basis of all things.

34. The Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom
which is in existence; every atom is continually striving to
manifest more life; all are intelligent, and all are seeking to carry
out the purpose for which they were created.

35. A majority of mankind lives in the world without; few have
found the world within, and yet it is the world within that
makes the world without; it is therefore creative and
everything which you find in your world without has been created
by you in the world within.

36. This system will bring you into a realization of power
which will be yours when you understand this relation between
the world without and the world within. The world within is the
cause, the world without the effect; to change the effect you must
change the cause.

37. You will at once see that this is a radically new and
different idea; most men try to change effects by working with
effects. They fail to see that this is simply changing one form
of distress for another. To remove discord, we must remove the
cause, and this cause can be found only in the world within.

38. All growth is from within. This is evident in all nature.
Every plant, every animal, every human is a living testimony to
this great law, and the error of the ages is in looking for
strength or power from without.

39. The world within is the Universal fountain of supply, and
the world without is the outlet to the stream. Our ability to
receive depends upon our recognition of this Universal Fountain,
this Infinite Energy of which each individual is an
outlet, and so is one with every other individual.

40. Recognition is a mental process, mental action is therefore
the interaction of the individual upon the Universal Mind, and
as the Universal Mind is the intelligence which pervades all
space and animates all living things, this mental action and
reaction is the law of causation, but the principle of
causation does not obtain in the individual but in the Universal
Mind. It is not an objective faculty but a subjective process, and the
results are seen in an infinite variety of conditions and
experiences.

41. In order to express life there must be mind; nothing can
exist without mind. Everything which exists is some
manifestation of this one basic substance from which and by
which all things have been created and are continually being
recreated.

42. We live in a fathomless sea of plastic mind substance. This
substance is ever alive and active. It is sensitive to the
highest degree. It takes form according to the mental demand.
Thought forms the mold or matrix from which the substance
expresses.

43. Remember that it is in the application alone that the value
consists, and that a practical understanding of this law will
substitute abundance for poverty, wisdom for ignorance, harmony
for discord and freedom for tyranny, and certainly there can be
no greater blessing than these from a material and social
standpoint.

44. Now make the application: Select a room where you can be
alone and undisturbed; sit erect, comfortably, but do not
lounge; let your thoughts roam where they will but be perfectly
still for from fifteen minutes to half an hour; continue this
for three or four days or for a week until you secure full
control of your physical being.

45. Many will find this extremely difficult; others will
conquer with ease, but it is absolutely essential to secure
complete control of the body before you are ready to progress.
Next week you will receive instructions for the next step; in the
meantime you must have mastered this one.

LESSON 2
 
Our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas and
ignorance of our true interests. The great task is to discover the laws
of nature to which we are to adjust ourselves. Clear thinking and
moral insight are, therefore, of incalculable value. All
processes, even those of thought, rest on solid foundations.

The keener the sensibilities, the more acute the judgment, the
more delicate the taste, the more refined the moral feelings,
the more subtle the intelligence, the loftier the aspiration --
the purer and more intense are the gratifications which
existence yields. Hence it is that the study of the best that
has been thought in the world gives supreme pleasure.

The powers, uses and possibilities of the mind under the new
interpretations are incomparably more wonderful that the most
extravagant accomplishment, or even dreams of material
progress.


Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy;
concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on
a
definite purpose becomes power. This is the power which is
being used by those who do not believe in the virtue of poverty, or
the beauty of self-denial. They perceive that this is the talk of
weaklings.

The ability to receive and manifest this power depends upon the
ability to recognize the Infinite Energy ever dwelling in man,
constantly creating and recreating his body and mind, and ready
at any moment to manifest through him in any needful manner. In
exact proportion to the recognition of this truth will be the
manifestation in the outer life of the individual.

Part Two explains the method by which this is accomplished.

PART TWO

1. The operations of the mind are produced by two parallel
modes of activity, the one conscious, and the other subconscious.
Professor Davidson says: "He who thinks to illuminate the whole
range of mental action by the light of his own consciousness is
not unlike the one who should go about to illuminate the
universe with a rushlight."

2. The subconscious' logical processes are carried on with a
certainty and regularity which would be impossible if there
existed the possibility of error. Our mind is so designed that
it prepares for us the most important foundations of cognition,
whilst we have not the slightest apprehension of the modus
operandi.

3. The subconscious soul, like a benevolent stranger, works and
makes provision for our benefit, pouring only the mature fruit
into our lap; thus ultimate analysis of thought processes shows
that the subconscious is the theatre of the most important
mental phenomena.

4. It is through the subconscious that Shakespeare must have
perceived, without effort, great truths which are hidden from
the conscious mind of the student; that Phidias fashioned
marble and bronze; that Raphael painted Madonnas and Beethoven
composed symphonies.

5. Ease and perfection depend entirely upon the degree in which
we cease to depend upon the consciousness; playing the piano,
skating, operating the typewriter, the skilled trades, depend
for their perfect execution on the process of the sub-conscious
mind. The marvel of playing a brilliant piece on the piano,
while at the same time conducting a vigorous conversation,
shows the greatness of our subconscious powers.

6. We are all aware how dependent we are upon the subconscious,
and the greater, the nobler, the more brilliant our thoughts
are, the more it is obvious to ourselves that the origin lies
beyond our ken. We find ourselves endowed with tact, instinct,
sense of the beautiful in art, music, etc., or whose origin or
dwelling place we are wholly unconscious.

7. The value of the subconscious is enormous; it inspires us;
it warns us; it furnishes us with names, facts and scenes from the
storehouse of memory. It directs our thoughts, tastes, and
accomplishes tasks so intricate that no conscious mind, even if
it had the power, has the capacity for.

8. We can walk at will; we can raise the arm whenever we choose
to do so; we can give our attention through eye or ear to any
subject at pleasure. On the other hand, we cannot stop our
heartbeats nor the circulation of the blood, nor the growth of
stature, nor the formation of nerve and muscle tissue, nor the
building of the bones, nor many other important vital
processes.


9. If we compare these two sets of action, the one decreed by
the will of the moment, and the other proceeding in majestic,
rhythmic course, subject to no vascillation, but constant at
every moment, we stand in awe of the latter, and ask to have
the mystery explained. We see at once that these are the vital
processes of our physical life, and we can not avoid the
inference that these all-important functions are designedly
withdrawn from the domain of our outward will with its
variations and transitions, and placed under the direction of a
permanent and dependable power within us.

10. Of these two powers, the outward and changeable has been
termed the "Conscious Mind," or the "Objective Mind" (dealing
with outward objects). The interior power is called the
"Subconscious Mind," or the "Subjective Mind," and besides its
work on the mental plane it controls the regular functions
which make physical life possible.

11. It is necessary to have a clear understanding of their
respective functions on the mental plane, as well as of certain
other basic principles. Perceiving and operating through the
five physical senses, the conscious mind deals with the
impressions and objects of the outward life.

12. It has the faculty of discrimination, carrying with it the
responsibility of choice. It has the power of reasoning -
whether inductive, deductive, analytical or syllogistic - and
this power may be developed to a high degree. It is the seat of
the will with all the energies that flow therefrom.

13. Not only can it impress other minds, but it can direct the
subconscious mind. In this way the conscious mind becomes the
responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is
this high function which can completely reverse conditions in
your life.

14. It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty,
disease, inharmony and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason
of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious
mind. All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent
by its vigilant protective action. It may properly be called
"the watchman at the gate" of the great subconscious domain.

15. One writer has expressed the chief distinction between the
two phases of mind thus: "Conscious mind is reasoning will.
Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past
reasoning will."

16. The subconscious mind draws just and accurate inferences
from premises furnished from outside sources. Where the premise
is true, the subconscious mind reaches a faultless conclusion,
but, where the premise or suggestion is an error, the whole
structure falls. The subconscious mind does not engage in the
process of proving. It relies upon the conscious mind, "the
watchman at the gate," to guard it from mistaken impressions.

17. Receiving any suggestions as true, the subconscious mind at
once proceeds to act thereon in the whole domain of its
tremendous field of work. The conscious mind can suggest either
truth or error. If the latter, it is at the cost of
wide-reaching peril to the whole being.

18. The conscious mind ought to be on duty during every waking
hour. When the "watchman" is "off guard," or when its calm
judgment is suspended, under a variety of circumstances, then
the subconscious mind is unguarded and left open to suggestion
from all sources. During the wild excitement of panic, or
during the height of anger, or the impulses of the irresponsible mob,
or at any other time of unrestrained passion, the conditions are
most dangerous. The subconscious mind is then open to the
suggestion of fear, hatred, selfishness, greed,
self-depreciation and other negative forces, derived from
surrounding persons or circumstances. The result is usually
unwholesome in the extreme, with effects that may endure to
distress it for a long time. Hence, the great importance of
guarding the subconscious mind from false impressions.

19. The subconscious mind perceives by intuition. Hence, its
processes are rapid. It does not wait for the slow methods of
conscious reasoning. In fact, it can not employ them.

20. The subconscious mind never sleeps, never rests, any more
than does your heart, or your blood. It has been found that by
plainly stating to the subconscious mind certain specific
things to be accomplished, forces are set in operation that lead to
the result desired. Here, then, is a source of power which places
us in touch with Omnipotence. Here in is a deep principle which is
well worth our most earnest study.

21. The operation of this law is interesting. Those who put it
into operation find that when they go out to meet the person
with whom they anticipate a difficult interview, something has
been there before them and dissolved the supposed differences;
everything is changed; all is harmonious; they find that when
some difficult business problem presents itself they can afford
to make delay and something suggests the proper solution;
everything is properly arranged; in fact, those who have
learned to trust the subconscious find that they have infinite
resources at their command.

22. The subconscious mind is the seat of our principles and our
aspirations. It is the fount of our artistic and altruistic
ideals. These instincts can only be overthrown by an elaborate
and gradual process of undermining the innate principles.

23. The subconscious mind cannot argue controversially. Hence,
if it has accepted wrong suggestions, the sure method of
overcoming them is by the use of a strong counter suggestion,
frequently repeated, which the mind must accept, thus
eventually forming new and healthy habits of thought and life, for the
subconscious mind is the seat of Habit. That which we do over
and over becomes mechanical; it is no longer an act of
judgment, but has worn its deep grooves in the subconscious mind. This
is
favorable for us if the habit be wholesome and right. If it be
harmful, and wrong, the remedy is to recognize the omnipotence
of the subconscious mind and suggest present actual freedom.
The subconscious being creative and one with our divine source will
at once create the freedom suggested.

24. To sum up: The normal functions of the subconscious on the
physical side have to do with the regular and vital processes,
with the preservation of life and the restoration of health;
with the care of offspring, which includes an instinctive
desire to preserve all life and improve conditions generally.

25. On the mental side, it is the storehouse of memory; it
harbors the wonderful thought messengers, who work, unhampered
by time or space; it is the fountain of the practical
initiative and constructive forces of life: It is the seat of habit.

26. On the spiritual side, it is the source of ideals, of
aspiration, of the imagination, and is the channel through
which we recognize our Divine Source, and in proportion as we
recognize this divinity do we come into an understanding of the source
of
power.

27. Some one may ask: "How can the subconscious change
conditions?" The reply is, because the subconscious is a part
of the Universal Mind and a part must be the same in kind and
quality as the whole; the only difference is one of degree. The
whole, as we know, is creative, in fact, it is the only creator
there is, consequently, we find that mind is creative, and as
thought is the only activity which the mind possesses, thought
must necessarily be creative also.

28. But we shall find that there is a vast difference between
simply thinking, and directing our thought consciously,
systematically and constructively; when we do this we place our
mind in harmony with the Universal Mind, we come in tune with
the Infinite, we set in operation the mightiest force in
existence, the creative power of the Universal Mind. This, as
everything else, is governed by natural law, and this law is
the "Law of Attraction," which is that Mind is creative, and will
automatically correlate with its object and bring it into
manifestation.

29. Last week I gave you an exercise for the purpose of
securing control of the physical body; if you have accomplished this
you
are ready to advance. This time you will begin to control your
thought. Always take the same room, the same chair, and the
same position, if possible. In some cases it is not convenient to
take the same room, in this case simply make the best use of such
conditions as may be available. Now be perfectly still as
before, but inhibit all thought; this will give you control
over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and will enable you to
entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire. Continue this
exercise until you gain complete mastery.

30. You will not be able to do this for more than a few moments
at a time, but the exercise is valuable, because it will be a
very practical demonstration of the great number of thoughts
which are constantly trying to gain access to your mental
world.


31. Next week you will receive instructions for an exercise
which may be a little more interesting, but it is necessary
that you master this one first.


"Cause and effect is as absolute and undeviating in the hidden
realm of thought as in the world of visible and material
things. Mind is the master weaver, both of the interior garment of
character and the outer garment of circumstance."

James Allen


You have found that the Individual may act on the Universal, and
that the result of this action and interaction is cause and
effect. Thought, therefore, is the cause, and the experiences
with which you meet in life are the effect.

Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of
conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests
with you to change them and make them what you would like them
to be.

Direct your effort to a realization of the mental resources,
always at your command, from which all real and lasting power
comes.

Persist in this practice until you come to a realization of the
fact that there can be no failure in the accomplishment of any
proper object in life if you but understand your power and
persist in your object, because the mind-forces are ever ready
to lend themselves to a purposeful will, in the effort to
crystallize thought and desire into actions, events and
conditions.

Whereas in the beginning of each function of life and each
action is the result of conscious thought, the habitual actions
become automatic and the thought that controls them passes into
the realm of the subconscious; yet it is just as intelligent as
before. It is necessary that it become automatic, or
subconscious, in order that the self-conscious mind may attend
to other things. The new actions will, however, in their turn,
be come habitual, then automatic, then subconscious in order
that the mind again may be freed from this detail and advanced
to still other activities.

When you realize this, you will have found a source of power
which will enable you to take care of any situation in life
which may develop.

PART THREE

1. The necessary interaction of the conscious and subconscious
mind requires a similar interaction between the corresponding
systems of nerves. Judge Troward indicates the very beautiful
method in which this interaction is effected. He says: The
cerebro-spinal system is the organ of the conscious mind and the
sympathetic is the organ of the subconscious. The cerebro-spinal
is the channel through which we receive conscious perception
from the physical senses and exercise control over the movements
of the body. This system of nerves has its centre in the brain.

2. The Sympathetic System has its centre in a ganglionic mass at
the back of the stomach known as the Solar Plexus, and is the
channel of that mental action which unconsciously supports the
vital functions of the body.

3. The connection between the two systems is made by the vagus
nerve which passes out of the cerebral region as a portion of
the voluntary system to the thorax, sending out branches to the
heart and lungs, and finally passing through the diaphragm, it
loses its outer coating and becomes identified with the nerves
of the Sympathetic System, so forming a connecting link between
the two and making man physically a "single entity".

4. We have seen that every thought is received by the brain,
which is the organ of the conscious; it is here subjected to our
power of reasoning. When the objective mind has been satisfied
that the thought is true it is sent to the Solar Plexus, or the
brain of the subjective mind, to be made into our flesh, to be
brought forth into the world as reality. It is then no longer
susceptible to any argument whatever. The subconscious mind
cannot argue; it only acts. It accepts the conclusions of the
objective mind as final.

5. The Solar Plexus has been likened to the sun of the body,
because it is a central point of distribution for the energy
which the body is constantly generating. This energy is very
real energy, and this sun is a very real sun, and the energy is
being distributed by very real nerves to all parts of the body,
and is thrown off in an atmosphere which envelopes the body.

6. If this radiation is sufficiently strong the person is called
magnetic; he is said to be filled with personal magnetism. Such a
person may wield an immense power for good. His presence alone
will often bring comfort to the troubled minds with which he
comes in contact.

7. When the Solar Plexus is in active operation and is radiating
life, energy and vitality to every part of the body, and to every
one whom he meets, the sensations are pleasant, the body is
filled with health and all with whom he comes in contact
experience a pleasant sensation.

8. If there is any interruption of this radiation the sensations
are unpleasant, the flow of life and energy to some part of the
body is stopped, and this is the cause of every ill to the human
race, physical, mental or environmental.

9. Physical because the sun of the body is no longer generating
sufficient energy to vitalize some part of the body; mental
because the conscious mind is dependent upon the subconscious
mind for the vitality necessary to support its thought, and
environmental, because the connection between the subconscious
mind and the Universal mind, is being interrupted.

10. The Solar Plexus is the point at which the part meets with
the whole, where the finite becomes Infinite, where the Uncreate
becomes create, the Universal becomes individualized, the
Invisible becomes visible. It is the point at which life appears
and there is no limit to the amount of life an individual may
generate from this Solar centre.

11. This centre of energy is Omnipotent because it is the point
of contact with all life and all intelligence. It can therefore
accomplish whatever it is directed to accomplish, and herein
lies the power of the conscious mind; the subconscious can and
will carry out such plans and ideas as may be suggested to it by
the conscious mind.

12. Conscious thought, then, is master of this sun centre from
which the life and energy of the entire body flows and the
quality of the thought which we entertain determines the quality
of the thought which this sun will radiate, and the character of
the thought which our conscious mind entertains will determine
the character of the thought which this sun will radiate, and
the nature of the thought which our conscious mind entertains
will determine the nature of thought which this sun will
radiate, and consequently will determine the nature of the
experience which will result.

13. It is evident, therefore, that all we have to do is let our
light shine; the more energy we can radiate, the more rapidly
shall we be enabled to transmute undesirable conditions into
sources of pleasure and profit. The important question, then, is
how to let this light shine; how to generate this energy.

14. Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant
thought contracts it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant
thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and
hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of
the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there
is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This
enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he
must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun;
which causes a perpetual gloom.

15. It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the
present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their
enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually
and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will
disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and
life.

16. When you find that you are really one with the Infinite
power, and when you can consciously realize this power by a
practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse
condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to
fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into
possession of your birthright.

17. It is our attitude of mind toward life which determines the
experiences with which we are to meet; if we expect nothing, we
shall have nothing; if we demand much, we shall receive the
greater portion. The world is harsh only as we fail to assert
ourselves. The criticism of the world is bitter only to those
who cannot compel room for their ideas. It is fear of this
criticism that causes many ideas to fail to see the light of
day.

18. But the man who knows that he has a Solar Plexus will not
fear criticism or anything else; he will be too busy radiating
courage, confidence, and power; he will anticipate success by
his mental attitude; he will pound barriers to pieces, and leap
over the chasm of doubt and hesitation which fear places in his
path.

19. A knowledge of our ability to consciously radiate health,
strength and harmony will bring us into a realization that there
is nothing to fear because we are in touch with Infinite
Strength.

20. This knowledge can be gained only by making practical
application of this information. We learn by doing; through
practice the athlete comes powerful.

21. As the following statement is of considerable importance, I
will put it in several ways, so that you cannot fail to get the
full significance of it. If you are religiously inclined, I
would say, you can let your light shine. If your mind has a bias
toward physical science, I would say you can wake the Solar
Plexus; or, if you prefer the strictly scientific
interpretation, I will say that you can impress your
subconscious mind.

22. I have already told you what the result of this impression
will be. It is the method in which you are now interested. You
have already learned that the subconscious is intelligent and
that it is creative, and responsive to the will of the conscious
mind. What, then, is the most natural way of making the desired
impression? Mentally concentrate on the object of your desire;
when you are concentrating you are impressing the subconscious.


23. This is not the only way, but it is a simple and effective
way, and the most direct way, and consequently the way in which
the best results are secured. It is the method which is
producing such extraordinary results that many think that
miracles are being accomplished.

24. It is the method by which every great inventor, every great
financier, every great statesman has been enabled to convert the
subtle and invisible force of desire, faith and confidence into
actual, tangible, concrete facts in the objective world.

25. The subconscious mind is a part of the Universal mind. The
Universal is the creative principle of the Universe, a part must
be the same in kind and quality as the whole. This means that
this creative power is absolutely unlimited; it is not bound by
precedent of any kind, and consequently has no prior existing
pattern by which to apply its constructive principle.

26. We have found that the subconscious mind is responsive to
our conscious will, which means that the unlimited creative
power of the Universal Mind is within control of the conscious
mind of the individual.

27. When making a practical application of this principle, in
accordance with the exercises given in the subsequent lessons,
it is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the
method by which the subconscious will produce the results you
desire. The finite cannot inform the Infinite. You are simply to
say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it.

28. You are the channel by which the undifferentiated is being
differentiated, and this differentiation is being accomplished
by appropriation. It only requires recognition to set causes in
motion which will bring about results in accordance with your
desire, and this is accomplished because the Universal can act
only through the individual, and the individual can act only
through the Universal; they are one.

29. For your exercise this week, I will ask you to go one step
further. I want you to not only be perfectly still, and inhibit
all thought as far as possible, but relax, let go, let the
muscles take their normal condition; this will remove all
pressure from the nerves, and eliminate that tension which so
frequently produces physical exhaustion.

30. Physical relaxation is a voluntary exercise of the will and
the exercise will be found to be of great value, as it enables
the blood to circulate freely to and from the brain and body.

31. Tensions leads to mental unrest and abnormal mental activity
of the mind; it produces worry, care, fear and anxiety.
Relaxation is therefore an absolute necessity in order to allow
the mental faculties to exercise the greatest freedom.

32. Make this exercise as thorough and complete as possible,
mentally determine that you will relax every muscle and nerve,
until you feel quiet and restful and at peace with yourself and
the world.

33. The Solar Plexus will then be ready to function and you will
be surprised at the result.

LESSON 4
 
Enclosed herewith I hand you Part Four. This part will show you
why what you think, or do, or feel, is an indication of what you
are.

Thought is energy and energy is power, and it is because all the
religions, sciences and philosophies with which the world has
heretofore been familiar have been based upon the manifestation
of this energy instead of the energy itself, that the world has
been limited to effects, while causes have been ignored or
misunderstood.

For this reason we have God and the Devil in religion, positive
and negative in science, and good and bad in philosophy.

The Master Key reverses the process; it is interested only in
cause, and the letters received from students tell a marvelous
story; they indicate conclusively that students are finding the
cause whereby they may secure for themselves health, harmony,
abundance, and whatever else may be necessary for their welfare
and happiness.

Life is expressive and it is our business to express ourselves
harmoniously and constructively. Sorrow, misery, unhappiness,
disease and poverty are not necessities and we are constantly
eliminating them.

But this process of eliminating consists in rising above and
beyond limitation of any kind. He who has strengthened and
purified his thought need not concern himself about microbes,
and he who has come into an understanding of the law of
abundance will go at once to the source of supply.

It is thus that fate, fortune, and destiny will be controlled as
readily as a captain controls his ship, or an engineer, his
train.

PART FOUR

1. The "I" of you is not the physical body; that is simply an
instrument which the "I" uses to carry out its purposes; the "I"
cannot be the Mind, for the mind is simply another instrument
which the "I" uses with which to think, reason, and plan.

2. The "I" must be something which controls and directs both the
body and the mind; something which determines what they shall do
and how they shall act. When you come into a realization of the
true nature of this "I", you will enjoy a sense of power which
you have never before known.

3. Your personality is made up of countless individual
characteristics, peculiarities, habits, and traits of character;
these are the result of your former method of thinking, but they
have nothing to do with the real "I."

4. When you say "I think" the "I" tells the mind what it shall
think; when you say "I go" the "I" tells the physical body where
it shall go; the real nature of this "I" is spiritual, and is the
source of the real power which comes to men and women when they
come into a realization of their true nature.

5. The greatest and most marvelous power which this "I" has been
given is the power to think, but few people know how to think
constructively, or correctly, consequently they achieve only
indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell
on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind.
When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of
defeat is in every selfish thought.

6. The trained mind knows that every transaction must benefit
every person who is in any way connected with the transaction,
and any attempt to profit by the weakness, ignorance or
necessity of another will inevitably operate to his
disadvantage.

7. This is because the individual is a part of the Universal. A
part cannot antagonize any other part, but, on the contrary, the
welfare of each part depends upon a recognition of the interest
of the whole.

8. Those who recognize this principle have a great advantage in
the affairs of life. They do not wear themselves out. They can
eliminate vagrant thoughts with facility. They can readily
concentrate to the highest possible degree on any subject. They
do not waste time or money upon objects which can be of no
possible benefit to them.

9. If you cannot do these things it is because you have thus far
not made the necessary effort. Now is the time to make the
effort. The result will be exactly in proportion to the effort
expended. One of the strongest affirmations which you can use
for the purpose of strengthening the will and realizing your
power to accomplish, is, "I can be what I will to be."

10. Every time you repeat it realize who and what this "I" is;
try to come into a thorough understanding of the true nature of
the "I"; if you do, you will become invincible; that is,
provided that your objects and purposes are constructive and are
therefore in harmony with the creative principle of the Universe.


11. If you make use of this affirmation, use it continuously,
night and morning, and as often during the day as you think of
it, and continue to do so until it becomes a part of you; form
the habit.

12. Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because
modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do
not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are
forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If
you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start,
see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your
mind to do something, do it; let nothing, no one, interfere; the
"I" in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast,
there is no longer any argument.

13. If you carry out this idea, beginning with small things
which you know you can control and gradually increase the
effort, but never under any circumstances allowing your "I" to
be overruled, you will find that you can eventually control
yourself, and many men and women have found to their sorrow that
it is easier to control a kingdom that to control themselves.

14. But when you have learned to control yourself you will have
found the "World Within" which controls the world without; you
will have become irresistible; men and things will respond to
your every wish without any apparent effort on your part.

15. This is not so strange or impossible as it may appear when
you remember that the "World Within" is controlled by the "I"
and that this "I" is a part or one with the Infinite "I" which
is the Universal Energy or Spirit, usually called God.

16. This is not a mere statement or theory made for the purpose
of confirming or establishing an idea, but it is a fact which
has been accepted by the best religious thought as well as the
best scientific thought.

17. Herbert Spender said: "Amid all the mysteries by which we
are surrounded, nothing is more certain than that we are ever in
the presence of an Infinite and Eternal Energy from which all
things proceed."

18. Lyman Abbott, in an address delivered before the Alumni of
Bangor Theological Seminary, said: "We are coming to think of
God as dwelling in man rather than as operating on men from
without."

19. Science goes a little way in its search and stops. Science
finds the ever-present Eternal Energy, but Religion finds the
Power behind this energy and locates it within man. But this is
by no means a new discovery; the Bible says exactly the same
thing, and the language is just as plain and convincing: "Know
ye not that ye are the temple of the living God?" Here, then, is
the secret of the wonderful creative power of the "World Within."


20. Here is the secret of power, of mastery. To overcome does
not mean to go without things. Self-denial is not success. We
cannot give unless we get; we cannot be helpful unless we are
strong. The Infinite is not a bankrupt and we who are the
representatives of Infinite power should not be bankrupts
either, and if we wish to be of service to others we must have
power and more power, but to get it we must give it; we must be
of service.

21. The more we give the more we shall get; we must become a
channel whereby the Universal can express activity. The
Universal is constantly seeking to express itself, to be of
service, and it seeks the channel whereby it can find the
greatest activity, where it can do the most good, where it can
be of greatest service to mankind.

22. The Universal cannot express through you as long as you are
busy with your plans, your own purposes; quiet the senses, seek
inspiration, focus the mental activity on the within, dwell in
the consciousness of your unity with Omnipotence. "Still water
runs deep;" contemplate the multitudinous opportunities to which
you have spiritual access by the Omnipresence of power.

23. Visualize the events, circumstances and conditions which
these spiritual connections may assist in manifesting. Realize
the fact that the essence and soul of all things is spiritual
and that the spiritual is the real, because it is the life of
all there is; when the spirit is gone, the life is gone; it is
dead; it has ceased to exist.

24. These mental activities pertain to the world within, to the
world of cause; and conditions and circumstances which result
are the effect. It is thus that you become a creator. This is
important work, and the higher, loftier, grander and more noble
ideals which you can conceive, the more important the work will
become.

25. Over-work or over-play or over-bodily activity of any kind
produces conditions of mental apathy and stagnation which makes
it impossible to do the more important work which results in a
realization of conscious power. We should, therefore, seek the
Silence frequently. Power comes through repose; it is in the
Silence that we can be still, and when we are still, we can
think, and thought is the secret of all attainment.

26. Thought is a mode of motion and is carried by the law of
vibration the same as light or electricity. It is given vitality
by the emotions through the law of love; it takes form and
expression by the law of growth; it is a product of the
spiritual "I", hence its Divine, spiritual, and creative nature.


27. From this it is evident that in order to express power,
abundance or any other constructive purpose, the emotions must
be called upon to give feeling to the thought so that it will
take form. How may this purpose be accomplished? This is the
vital point; how may we develop the faith, the courage, the
feeling, which will result in accomplishment?

28. The reply is, by exercise; mental strength is secured in
exactly the same way that physical strength is secured, by
exercise. We think something, perhaps with difficulty the first
time; we think the same thing again, and it becomes easier this
time; we think it again and again; it then becomes a mental
habit. We continue to think the same thing; finally it becomes
automatic; we can no longer help thinking this thing; we are now
positive of what we think; there is no longer any doubt about it.
We are sure; we know.

29. Last week I asked you to relax, to let go physically. This
week, I am going to ask you to let go mentally. If you practiced
the exercise given you last week fifteen or twenty minutes a day
in accordance with the instructions, you can no doubt relax
physically; and anyone who cannot consciously do this quickly
and completely is not a master of himself. He has not obtained
freedom; he is still a slave to conditions. But I shall assume
that you have mastered the exercise and are ready to take the
next step, which is mental freedom.

30. This week, after taking your usual position, remove all
tension by completely relaxing, then mentally let go of all
adverse conditions, such as hatred, anger, worry, jealousy,
envy, sorrow, trouble or disappointment of any kind.

31. You may say that you cannot "let go" of these things, but
you can; you can do so by mentally determining to do so, by
voluntary intention and persistence.

32. The reason that some cannot do this is because they allow
themselves to be controlled by the emotions instead of by their
intellect. But those who will be guided by the intellect will
gain the victory. You will not succeed the first time you try,
but practice makes perfect, in this as in everything else, and
you must succeed in dismissing, eliminating and completely
destroying these negative and destructive thoughts; because they
are the seed which is constantly germinating into discordant
conditions of every conceivable kind and description.


"There is nothing truer than that the quality of thought which we
entertain correlates certain externals in the outside world. This
is the Law from which there is no escape. And it is this Law,
this correlative of the thought with its object, that from time
immemorial has led the people to believe in special providence"

LESSON 5
 
Enclosed herewith you will find Part Five. After studying this
part carefully, you will see that every conceivable force or
object or fact is the result of mind in action.

Mind in action is thought, and thought is creative. Men are
thinking now as they never thought before.

Therefore, this is a creative age, and the world is awarding its
richest prizes to the thinkers. Matter is powerless, passive,
inert. Mind is force, energy, power. Mind shapes and controls
matter. Every form which matter takes is but the expression of
some pre-existing thought.

But thought works no magic transformations; it obeys natural
laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural
energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in
turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually
upon the whole of your environment. You can originate thought,
and, since thoughts are creative, you can create for yourself
the things you desire.

PART FIVE

1. At least ninety per cent of our mental life is subconscious,
so that those who fail to make use of this mental power live
within very narrow limits.

2. The subconscious can and will solve any problem for us if we
know how to direct it. The subconscious processes are always at
work; the only question is, are we to be simply passive
recipients of this activity, or are we to consciously direct the
work? Shall we have a vision of the destination to be reached,
the dangers to be avoided, or shall we simply drift?

3. We have found that mind pervades every part of the physical
body and is always capable of being directed or impressed by
authority coming from the objective or the more dominant portion
of the mind.

4. The mind, which pervades the body, is largely the result of
heredity, which, in turn, is simply the result of all the
environments of all past generations on the responsive and
ever-moving life forces. An understanding of this fact will
enable us to use our authority when we find some undesirable
trait of character manifesting.

5. We can consciously use all the desirable characteristics with
which we have been provided and we can repress and refuse to
allow the undesirable ones to manifest.

6. Again, this mind which pervades our physical body is not only
the result of hereditary tendencies, but is the result of home,
business and social environment, where countless thousands of
impressions, ideas, prejudices and similar thoughts have been
received. Much of this has been received from others, the result
of opinions, suggestions or statements; much of it is the result
of our own thinking, but nearly all of it has been accepted with
little or no examination or consideration.

7. The idea seemed plausible, the conscious received it, passed
it on to the subconscious, where it was taken up by the
Sympathetic System and passed on to be built into our physical
body. "The word has become flesh."

8. This, then, is the way we are consistently creating and
recreating ourselves; we are today the result of our past
thinking, and we shall be what we are thinking today, the Law of
Attraction is bringing to us, not the things we should like, or
the things we wish for, or the things some one else has, but it
brings us "our own," the things which we have created by our
thought processes, whether consciously or unconsciously.
Unfortunately, many of us are creating these things
unconsciously.

9. If either of us were building a home for ourselves, how
careful we would be in regard to the plans; how we should study
every detail; how we should watch the material and select only
the best of everything; and yet how careless we are when it
comes to building our Mental Home, which is infinitely more
important than any physical home, as everything which can
possibly enter into our lives depends upon the character of the
material which enters into the construction of our Mental Home.


10. What is the character of this material? We have seen that it
is the result of the impressions which we have accumulated in the
past and stored away in our subconscious Mentality. If these
impressions have been of fear, of worry, of care, of anxiety; if
they have been despondent, negative, doubtful, then the texture
of the material which we are weaving today will be of the same
negative material. Instead of being of any value, it will be
mildewed and rotten and will bring us only more toil and care
and anxiety. We shall be forever busy trying to patch it up and
make it appear at least genteel.

11. But if we have stored away nothing but courageous thought,
if we have been optimistic, positive, and have immediately
thrown any kind of negative thought on the scrap pile, have
refused to have anything to do with it, have refused to
associate with it or become identified with it in any way, what
then is the result? Our mental material is now of the best kind;
we can weave any kind of material we want; we can use any color
we wish; we know that the texture is firm, that the material is
solid, that it will not fade, and we have no fear, no anxiety
concerning the future; there is nothing to cover, there are no
patches to hide.

12. These are psychological facts; there is no theory or
guesswork about these thinking processes; there is nothing
secret about them; in fact, they are so plain that every one can
understand them. The thing to do is to have a mental
house-cleaning, and to have this house-cleaning every day, and
keep the house clean. Mental, moral and physical cleanliness are
absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.


13. When this mental house-cleaning process has been completed,
the material which is left will be suitable for the making of
the kind of ideals or mental images which we desire to realize.


14. There is a fine estate awaiting a claimant. Its broad acres,
with abundant crops, running water and fine timber, stretch away
as far as the eye can see. There is a mansion, spacious and
cheerful, with rare pictures, a well-stocked library, rich
hangings, and every comfort and luxury. All the heir has to do
is to assert his heirship, take possession, and use the
property. He must use it; he must not let it decay; for use is
the condition on which he holds it. To neglect it is to lose
possession.

15. In the domain of mind and spirit, in the domain of practical
power, such an estate is yours. You are the heir! You can assert
your heirship and possess, and use this rich inheritance. Power
over circumstances is one of its fruits, health, harmony and
prosperity are assets upon its balance sheet. It offers you
poise and peace. It costs you only the labor of studying and
harvesting its great resources. It demands no sacrifice, except
the loss of your limitations, your servitudes, your weakness. It
clothes you with self-honor, and puts a scepter in your hands.

16. To gain this estate, three processes are necessary: You must
earnestly desire it. You must assert your claim. You must take
possession.

17. You admit that those are not burdensome conditions.

18. You are familiar with the subject of heredity. Darwin,
Huxley, Haeckel, and other physical scientists have piled
evidence mountain high that heredity is a law attending
progressive creation. It is progressive heredity which gives man
his erect attitude, his power of motion, the organs of
digestions, blood circulation, nerve force, muscular force, bone
structure and a host of other faculties on the physical side.
There are even more impressive facts concerning heredity of mind
force. All these constitute what may be called your human
heredity.

19. But there is a heredity which the physical scientists have
not compassed. It lies beneath and antecedent to all their
researches. At a point where they throw up their hands in
despair, saying they cannot account for what they see, this
divine heredity is found in full sway.

20. It is the benignant force which decrees primal creation. It
thrills down from the Divine, direct into every created being.
It originates life, which the physical scientist has not done,
nor ever can do. It stands out among all forces supreme,
unapproachable. No human heredity can approach it. No human
heredity measures up to it.

21. This Infinite Life flows through you; is you. Its doorways
are but the faculties which comprise your consciousness. To keep
open these doors is the Secret of Power. Is it not worthwhile to
make the effort?

22. The great fact is, that the source of all life and all power
is from within. Persons, circumstances and events may suggest
need and opportunities, but the insight, strength and power to
answer these needs will be found within.

23. Avoid counterfeits. Build firm foundations for your
consciousness upon forces which flow direct from the Infinite
source, the Universal Mind of which you are the image and
likeness.

24. Those we have come into possession of this inheritance are
never quite the same again. They have come into possession of a
sense of power hitherto undreamed of. They can never again be
timid, weak, vacillating, or fearful. They are indissolubly
connected with Omnipotence. Something in them has been aroused;
they have suddenly discovered that they possess a tremendous
latent ability of which they were heretofore entirely
unconscious.

25. This power is from within, but we cannot receive it unless
we give it. Use is the condition upon which we hold this
inheritance. We are each of us but the channel through which the
Omnipotent power is being differentiated into form; unless we
give, the channel is obstructed and we can receive no more. This
is true on every plane of existence and in every field of
endeavor and all walks of life. The more we give, the more we
get. The athlete who wishes to get strong must make use of the
strength he has, and the more he gives the more he will get. The
financier who wishes to make money must make use of the money he
has, for only by using it can he get more.

26. The merchant who does not keep his goods going out will soon
have none coming in; the corporation which fails to give
efficient service will soon lack customers; the attorney who
fails to get results will soon lack clients, and so it goes
everywhere; power is contingent upon a proper use of the power
already in our possession; what is true in every field of
endeavor, every experience in life, is true of the power from
which every other power known among men is begotten -- spiritual
power. Take away the spirit and what is left? Nothing.

27. If then the spirit is all there is, upon the recognition of
this fact must depend the ability to demonstrate all power,
whether physical, mental or spiritual.

28. All possession is the result of the accumulative attitude of
mind, or the money consciousness; this is the magic wand which
will enable you to receive the idea, and it will formulate plans
for you to execute, and you will find as much pleasure in the
execution as in the satisfaction of attainment and achievement.


29. Now, go to your room, take the same seat, the same position
as heretofore, and mentally select a place which has pleasant
associations. Make a complete mental picture of it, see the
buildings, the grounds, the trees, friends, associations,
everything complete. At first, you will find yourself thinking
of everything under the sun, except the ideal upon which you
desire to concentrate. But do not let that discourage you.
Persistence will win, but persistence requires that you practice
these exercises every day without fail.
