Mr Hill says “The sixth sense defies description! It cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy, because such a person has no knowledge, and no experience with which the sixth sense may be compared. Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by meditation through mind development from within. The sixth sense probably is the medium of contact between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence, and for this reason, it is a mixture of both the mental and the spiritual. It is believed to be the point at which the mind of man contacts the Universal Mind.
This is where I get a little puzzled because I feel that I have had this sixth sense for quite a while now, in fact most of my later adult life. I know I have had it when I had in no way mastered all thirteen principles. In fact I still feel like I have not completely mastered them. So if I am understanding this correctly he says that it can’t be described to someone who has no knowledge of the sixth sense, not that you cannot have it yourself. I will be looking forward to the insights of others on this subject on the mastermind.
Something that Hill said I had never noticed in any prior reading seemed to jump off the page at me for some reason this time and it was this statement.
“Realizing, as I did, early in life, that I had to overcome the handicap of birth in an environment of ignorance and superstition, I deliberately assigned myself the task of voluntary rebirth through the method here described”. So he obviously discovered the power of self talk at an early age. I have no idea why that jumped out at me this time. I don’t think that it was the self talk but the fact that he realized he had to overcome the handicap of birth in an environment of ignorance and superstition.
It seems to me that we all have to overcome the very same thing.
