Week 21 Power Up.

Running a bit slo this week.

As I read about power in lesson 21 I was reminded about it as I tried fix a light fixture.  First, I tried to take a short cut and not turn off the power as I worked on the over head fixture and two, I stuck a needle nose pliers into the fixture…you can see where this is going…  sparks, blown circuit, etc.  Point being power is great but we have to understand it, understand the rules by which it is governed and respect what we learn.  Just having power or access to it without knowledge and the proper application of that knowledge is nothing.  In fact it could be dangerous as in the case with me and my own stupidity with electrical current and the respective –or lack of respect–properties.  I am grateful and gratified that we have the power and it is sufficient for all our needs.  But as the Fab D and Mark J remind us–it is the application of knowledge that is critical and in fact the proper application…

From lesson 21…

3. This is because the Infinite Mind, which is the source from which all things proceed, is one and indivisible, and each individual is a channel whereby this Eternal Energy is being manifested. Our ability to think is our ability to act upon this Universal Substance, and what we think is what is created or produced in the objective world.

4. The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous, and means that mind is extraordinary in quality, limitless in quantity, and contains possibilities without number. To become conscious of this power is to become a “live wire”; it has the same effect as placing an ordinary wire in contact with a wire that is charged. The Universal is the live wire. It carries power sufficient to meet every situation which may arise in the life of every individual. When the individual mind touches the Universal Mind it receives all the power it requires. This is the world within. All science recognizes the reality of this world, and all power is contingent upon our recognition of this world.
