Wow, how fast a week goes by!
Many things are coming together week by week. I like how each week has challenges and breakthroughs.
The MKMMA as I see it has all the same ingredients as life.
I have been focusing on persistence this week. It was part of another week, but this week was my week to see it and be it all over again.
I have had a better week this time seeing it and thus being it. I will continue to revisit all the characteristics again and again. The reason why is those things I focus on and see around me are much more within me… on an ever increasing basis.
Life has a lot of persistence aspects in it. Not only people but many things persist. Such as the seasons they come and go and a year later they are back. Days turn into night and back into day.
Truth is persistent also. Truth is very scientific. Truth can be very harsh and also very kind. Truth is impartial. I point this out because I see it all around me and I did read it this week in the Master Keys week 21 sentence 27. I am getting ahead of myself here is an excerpt from the intro this week.
Consequently, if prayer has ever been answered, it will always be answered, if the proper conditions are complied with. This must necessarily be true; otherwise the universe would be a chaos instead of a cosmos. The answer to prayer is therefore subject to law, and this law is definite, exact and scientific, just as are the laws governing gravitation and electricity. An understanding of this law takes the foundation of Christianity out of the realm of superstition and credulity and places it upon the firm rock of scientific understanding.
I know many times I have wondered why prayers were answered in certain ways or if it doesn’t really matter. I know that God is a God of order. So maybe it does matter and has mattered all along… hhmmm.
Then it goes on to say:
But, unfortunately, there are comparatively few persons who know how to pray.
They understand that there are laws governing electricity, mathematics, and chemistry, but, for some inexplicable reason, it never seems to occur to them that there are also spiritual laws, and that these laws are also definite, scientific, exact, and operate with immutable precision.
Wow… I am challenged by those words and yet I fully understand what they mean.
For I have always read.
Mark 11:22–24 (ESV)
22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
I have recently asked and believed for rain here where I live in Northern California. I know we are receiving rain currently. I believe it is answer to my prayer. It will continue to rain in a way that those who doubt will believe. That was and is my prayer. So that God gets the Glory from those who do not believe. That mountain is moving.
On to sentence 27.
27. The Divine Mind is the Universal Mind; it makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites; it does not act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy or wrath; neither can it be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy or petition to supply man with some need which he thinks necessary for his happiness or even his existence. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual; but when the individual understands and realizes his Unity with the Universal principle he will appear to be favored because he will have found the source of all health, all wealth, and all power.
I have truly focused on Truth this week in my daily sit. The other assignments about using fear,anger, unworthiness, guilt and hurt feelings as tools to bring about the truth about who I am and who I am becoming is unfolding right now. I have my thoughts about how to bring that about.
In one sit I could see a fuzzy wall I was approaching. And instead of slowing down and moving away from it and all those feelings. I ran right toward it and stepped right through what ever it was to the other side. I’ll let you think about and comment what you get from that visualization I had.
Please share your thoughts with me. I love that there is a time for everything. Mark J. this week said something that I know to be true. “If the MKMMA would have told us 20 weeks ago that those feelings(fear, anger, unworthiness, guilt and hurt feelings) could be used as tools. You would have packed your bags and never came on this journey.” But now it is a challenge to see if I can figure it out… I am close so are you.
