The Master Stroke of the Master Key is saving the best for last.
This particular lesson is so loaded with insight and wisdom laying in plain sight it’s like a wonderful meal, steaming with aroma, plated and presented perfectly, challenging you to choose the first bite in the right order.
Now that we have arrived at Week 21, ideas such as #18 on how habits are formed, we simply look at it and say, “Yes, I know from experience. It’s not a concept or a theory. It’s not simply a good idea or a teaching. It’s how the human machine works!” (And, oh by the way, you should try it!) But don’t be fooled. It is no easy matter to change the mental attitude, but by persistent effort it CAN BE DONE!
Here’s another delicious bite. #6. Large ideas have a tendency to eliminate all smaller ideas so that it is well to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies. This will remove innumerable petty and annoying obstacles from your path. You also become conscious of a larger world of thought, thereby increasing your mental capacity as well as placing yourself in position to accomplish something of value.
And here is a note of gentleness and patience; If we do fail now and then, we should by no means lose hope, for the law is absolute and invincible and gives us credit for every effort and every success, even though our efforts and successes are perhaps intermittent.
Finally, the level playing field; the part I adore most. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites. It is unconditional. Therefore, the more conscious we become of our unity with this mind, the less conscious we become of conditions and limitations, and as we become emancipated from conditions we come into a realization of the unconditional. We have become free!
