Think & Grow Rich Lessons

Hill tells us that “THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND consists of a field of consciousness, in which every impulse of thought that reaches the objective mind through any of the five senses, is classified and recorded, and from which thoughts may be recalled or withdrawn as letters may be taken from a filing cabinet.

It receives, and files, sense impressions or thoughts, regardless of their nature.”

A lot of those thoughts are not good thoughts, many of them are negative ones that have poured into our minds for the biggest part of our lives by parents, teachers, clergy, news, television and movies. A lot of the Hollyweird movies that give us the warm fuzzies are chocked full of subtle messages designed to program us to their way of thinking and if we are not aware and wide awake we never realize it. Seems like the TV sitcoms might probably be worse than the movies. For just one little example among many I watched some movie, a comedy called Revenge of the Nerds. It had some funny parts in it but if you were not aware they were making fun of conservatives throughout the movie. It was underneath the radar but designed to slip right into the subconcious. 

Those thoughts are so ingrained in the mind that they have formed a paradigm that controls a lot of our actions automatically and are really hard to break. R Buckminster Fuller said “ You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. That’s what we have to do with the old paradigm which includes our self image. We can’t just erase the old files, they will always be there but we have to start building a new model and have to work on it hard until it’s much bigger than the old one and just pushes the old one to the side. Then the new one can control our actions which will lead us to the results we desire.

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for this weekly mastermind that can keep our thoughts inline with where we want to go and what we desire to accomplish and thanks to my likeminded friends and mastermind partners who keep me on track.
