The Master Key System – Part 17 (Into)

Standard

The_Master_Key_System

The kind of Deity which a man, consciously or unconsciously, worships, indicates the intellectual status of the worshipper.

Ask the Indian of God, and he will describe to you a powerful chieftain of a glorious tribe. Ask the Pagan of God, and he will tell you of a God of fire, a God of water, a god of this, that, and the other.

Ask the Israelite of God, and he will tell you of the God of Moses, who conceived it expedient to rule by coercive measures; hence, the Ten Commandments. Or of Joshua, who led the Israelites into battle, confiscated property, murdered the prisoners, and laid waste to cities.

The so-called heathen made “graven images” of their Gods, whom they were accustomed to worship, but among the most intelligent, at least, these images were but the visible fulcrums with which they were enabled to mentally concentrate on the qualities which they desired to externalize in their lives.

We of the twentieth century worship a God of Love in theory, but in practice we make for ourselves “graven images” of “Wealth,” “Power,” “Fashion,” “Custom” and “Conventionality.” We “fall down” before them and worship them. We concentrate on them and they are thereby externalized in our lives.

The student who masters the contents of Part Seventeen will not mistake the symbols for the reality; he will be interested in causes, rather than effects. He will concentrate on the realities of life, and will then not be disappointed in the results.

Is life pushing you around?

Standard

“If you’re the kind of person who has no guts, you just give up every time life pushes you.
if you are that kind of person, you will live all your life playing it save, doing the right things,
saving yourself for some event that never happens.
Then, you die a boring old man. You’ll have lots of friends who really like you because you were such a nice hard-working guy.
You spent a life playing it safe, doing the right things.
But the truth is, you let life push you into submission.
Deep down you were terrified of taking risks.
You really wanted to win, but the fear of losing was greater than the excitement of winning.
Deep inside, you and only you will know you didn’t go for it. You chose to play it safe.”
– Robert T Kiyosaki

Who needs to change?

Standard

“You’d best change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I’m the problem. If you think I’m the problem, then you have to change me. If you realize that you’re the problem, then you can change yourself, learn something and grow wiser. Most people want everyone else in the world to change but themselves. Let me tell you, it’s easier to change yourself than everyone else.” – Robert T Kiyosaki

How to change the world

Standard

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world…I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
