“Everything has its season. In spring, the world brings forth blossoms. In cherry season, you get cherries.
But a season has dawned… A season of heroes and marvels.
The universe fights to save itself. To save everything, the heroes have come.”
Billions of years ago, the technologically-advanced extraterrestrial race known as the Watchers decided it was their duty to help the universe’s races. After catastrophic disappointment The Watchers vowed never to interfere in the affairs of other races again.
Deepak Chopra wrote in his book the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success the 4th Law, the Law of Least Effort. This law teaches us the way of the Observer. To watch the world we walk in and never to rush headlong in selfish ways.
It teaches us pivotal practices of Acceptance and the detachment of Judgment.
The Law of Least Effort
1 – I will practice Acceptance. Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are this moment, not as I wish they were.
2 – Having accepted things as they are, I will take Responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems. I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (and this includes myself). I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit.
3 – Today my awareness will remain established in Defenselessness. I will relinquish the need to defend my point of view, and I will feel no need to persuade others to accept my point of view. I will remain open to all points of view and not be rigidly attached to any one of them.
Watchman at the Gate
Like The Watchers devoted to millennia of Observation of others we must become The Watcher of our Self. We must remain devoted as the Watchman at the Gate to our own subconscious.
Charles Haanel writes in the Master Key System Part Two specifically about protecting our mind from the influences outside as they may not even be Truth. Certainly not the Truth of Our Heart.
2:14. 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.
2:15. 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.”
2:16. 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.
Much Leads To More
Haanel goes on in Part Twenty Three to speak of the malady of not Thinking for Yourself.
23:9. The average person is entirely innocent of any deep thinking; he accepts the ideas of others, and repeats them, in very much the same way as a parrot; this is readily seen when we understand the method which is used to form public opinion, and this docile attitude on the part of a large majority who seem perfectly willing to let a few persons do all their thinking for them is what enables a few men in a great many countries to usurp all the avenues of power and hold the millions in subjection. Creative thinking requires attention.
23:10. The power of attention is called concentration; this power is directed by the will; for this reason we must refuse to concentrate or think of anything except the things we desire. Many are constantly concentrating upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitable leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise? On the other hand, when we meet with success, gain, or any other desirable condition, we naturally concentrate upon the effects of these things and thereby create more, and so it follows that much leads to more.
I am Happy to be of Service
In that same chapter he speaks of the foundation of Success, which is Service to Others.
23:2. Fear is just the opposite from money consciousness; it is poverty consciousness, and as the law is unchangeable we get exactly what we give; if we fear we get what we feared. Money weaves itself into the entire fabric of our very existence; it engages the best thought of the best minds.
23:3. We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them. The first law of success then is service, and this in turn is built on integrity and justice. …
In Search Of…
I am already involved and I am now in search of the greatest MasterMind. I am pleasantly surprised to find that once I spoke this effort aloud to the Universe that some of my actual MasterMind already had the EXACT same thing in Mind before telling about it. Zack and Kimberly…
