20:1 The spirit of me is me. I can desire to be something else, a bird perhaps, I can emulate someone else and want to be like them, but I can never be them. I can only be me, I can improve me. I can improve myself to the highest degree but that will not make me someone else. The spirit of me is me, that is necessarily fixed.
20:2 I can read and learn a thousand techniques for harnessing the minds power but id I don’t practice the use of the techniques. They will be of no value
20:3 My magic wand of power is my consciousness and my thoughts are carried on the ether as messages from the invisable world formulating the conditions and enviornments of my objective reality.
20:4 Oh the wonderment to know that it has finally been realized that thinking is our business and the joy to have found direction and a way to direct my superfluous thoughts.
When I read these lessons I imagine that haanell is speaking directly to me therefor I must sit and think on them to put them into my own words so they can be internalized by my consciousness. But lets skip on down to 9 as I write this I am picking out the passages that were the high points to the message I received during these readings.
20:9 States unequivocally that it is the sitting silence with the visualization and the imagination that is the absolute for making changes in your reality.
20:14 Shows us a way to get inspired to believe by simply making a small change refered to as getting off the beated path , taking the long way home . Instead of complaining about the traffic take a road less traveled it may be longer by it can give you a better outlook on things. perhaps you come across a field of flowers that you didn’t know was there and now you can’t wait to tell your family when you get home about your new discovery.. and that leads to more pleasant dinner conversation and look at how much brighter your world is now! One little innocuous change in routine
20:18 tells us how to cultivate that inspiration in the silence and what we must possess in order to be ready to receive the inspiration vital for our purpose. So if we are not able to still our minds and relax our bodies and regulate our breathing, we are not yet ready to receive the information from the divine.. Sometimes I have made the mistake of thinking that some information I have received in a sit has been divine inspiration when in fact it has been nothing more than thought fragments whirling around in an overly tired mind. I think we all have experienced that….it’s usually followed by…Seemed like a good I dea at the time….lol
20: 20 through 20:26 talks about the art of refining our breathing with intention to increase our supply of life, energy and vitality. and as I read each paragraph a visual popped into my head of Plate 27 in the Bhagavad-Gita entitled The process of Creation conducted by LORD KRISHNA ‘S VISNU expansions. Here depicted is LORD KRISHNA laying back on the ether, breathing it in and breathing out new glorious worlds through his conch shell, Pancajanya.
20 :27 through 20:30 serve as a warning to be carefull of the consequences of forcefully misdirected thought. Because no matter what the intention, you reap what you sow. an hopefully we are all sowing seeds of peace love and happiness for all of the world,
Inagine yourself floating on the ether breathing it in and breathing out peace and contentment!
