The Power of Thinking
"What is meant by thinking?" This is one of our study questions for part 24 in The Master Key System. The answer is given, "Clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, sustained thought with a definite end in view."
Defined by the Webster's 1828 Dictionary
Think. 1.To have the mind occupied on some subject; to have ideas, or to revolve ideas in the mind. 2. To conceive; to imagine, to believe, to consider, to esteem. 3. To muse, to meditate.
The Power of Thinking, is being a Thinker…"One who Thinks". Webster continues, "But chiefly, one who thinks in a particular manner; as a close thinker; a deep thinker; a coherent thinker.
The Thinker is Thinking using the imagination, and even more, lets try on... Idealization, visualization, and concentration. It is in the power to see a thing in its completeness. Lets dig a little deeper. "Thought is the plastic material with which we build images of our growing conception of life. Use determines its existence. As in all other things our ability to recognize it and use it properly is the necessary condition for attainment," Haanel chapter 16.
And Creative Thinking requires Attention and the Power of Attention (last weeks blog) is called Concentration. "Every form of concentration, forming Mental Images, Argument, and Autosuggestion are all simply methods by which you are enabled to realize the truth," Haanel chapter 24.
If thinking holds power, what should we be thinking? And if what we think about grows with the Law of Attraction our thoughts are of the utmost of importance. Do we take the Power of Thinking and imagine lack, loss, and poverty? Surely NOT!
"When an object or purpose is clearly held in thought, its precipitation, in tangible and visible form, is merely a question of time. The vision always precedes and itself determines the realization." Lillian Whiting
Have you thought that All Thought is a form of energy? A rate of vibration?
"Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make not mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement, "Haanel, chapter 13. Its the Power of Thinking. The Thinker must be clear, decisive, calm, deliberate, and build with the best of character, the highest principle, the thinker must think justly, and purely.
"The possibilities of thought training are infinite, its consequence eternal, and yet few take the pains to direct their thinking into channels that will do them good, but instead leave all to chance." Marden
"That a man can change himself, improve himself, re-create himself, control his environment, and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide-awake to the power of right thought in constructive action." Larsen
