In the Master Key Part Ten I can see the old me being described perfectly and its a painful reminder of what used to be true for me.
It describes the ordinary man as thinking chiefly to justify his actions. This seems a little odd at first but then it is described further on in the text and it hits me ‘that was me’.
Anything that I was failing at or finding difficult I would be thinking and justifying why to myself and anyone else who would listen. The timing is wrong, they are not ready, they don’t understand me, etc. We all know these thoughts and they act to console us as they are explanations and excuses as to why we are perfect and everyone else is wrong.
We are instead taught to think our problems through to the end. We understand that every effect is the result of a definite cause and instead of explaining it away we can instead follow the trail of truths down to the bedrock of facts.
This is a more difficult task and requires us to be accountable instead of consoled.
Not everyone will be ready for such thinking but for those that are there is whole world of abundance out there and it is for us all to enjoy. By freeing our minds we can free our spirits to chase our dreams and know all along the way that we can overcome the obstacles with right thinking and will not get bogged down with excuses and self pity. This means we can dream big without fear and enjoy the process.
