Week 10 = The Eyes Have It
Let’s first look at Haanel’s writings from various chapters.
8-28 – …you will develop imagination, insight, perception, and sagacity. These come not by the superficial observation of the multitude, but by a keen analytical observation which sees below the surface.
So I begin to study many variations of what is really happening in my mind, body and soul. How things are wired and fired together. There is more going on than meets the the eye, than most ever even realize.
9-15 – Visualization is the mechanism of the attachment which you require. Visualization is a very different process from seeing; seeing is physical, and is therefore related to the objective world, the “world without,” but Visualization is a product of the imagination, and is therefore a product of the subjective mind, the “world within.”
This is a wonderful new tool. I have have the power of creation in the world within.
10-21. Constructive thought must necessarily be creative, but creative thought must be harmonious, and this eliminates all destructive or competitive thought.
Creation is construction. The creation must be in line for my good and not take away any others’ good.
So the “eyes” have it? How about the The Mind’s Eye?
The creative visualization of the Mind having Thoughts, attaching those with Belief founded and bolstered with enthusiastic joyous Emotion.
10-11. The law is that Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world. This is the law by which and through which all things come into manifestation; it is the Master Key by which you are admitted into the Secret Place of the Most High and are “given dominion over all things.” With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.”
As it is written:
JOB 22:28 – Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
I cannot express more the power of the words that have been delivered.
I feel as though I will weep and then feel a covering of peace, so the tears do not come although the feeling remains as both.
I Am Joyous and Free.
In reality the ‘I’ has it.
