The Battleship Exercise

This is the exercise from The Master Key System as detailed at: http://www.psitek.net/pages/PsiTekTMKS17.html#gsc.tab=0
Look to paragraphs 30,31. and 32. These are too lengthy to reprint here, it would take up our entire session. In paragraph 30 Haanel examines a great battleship as it exists today. His description is remarkably accurate for modern usage as well as at the time he wrote it. Haanel describes the beast with clarity.

Next in Paragraph 31, Haanel goes back in time, step by step, tracing the battleship back to it’s inception and then back even further until it’s merely a thought in the collective mind of citizens. Haanel helps the student grasp how chance played no role in this whatsoever.

In paragraph 32, Haanel shows that without recognize the law of specific gravity that the entire endeavor and many more like it, would not have been possible.

It is our hope that our readers take advantage of the public domain posting of Haanel’s work to follow along with us as we discuss it here. These sessions aren’t meant to substitute our words for his, but rather to help by supplementing them for our readers with incites and suggestions from time to time.

We do love that Haanel used such a complicated thing to analyze, rather than go for something simple, only because it shows without a doubt that even the highly complex and intricate items have at their source, a Spiritual beginning. Remember that thought is Spiritual power. What we mean by this is that thought has no basis in the physical realm, but it is where the physical realm springs from.

We see alarm bells going off in people’s brains as we made that last statement. People’s brains aren’t anything more than a physical representation of an underlying principle, of a deeper reality. That reality still has at it’s core that nothing exists physically without consciousness or awareness. In that way, an “injury to the brain” is actually a physical representation of a non-physical truth.

Does your own brain hurt at this point attempting to contemplate that? Think of life as a video game, with the things that happen on screen controlled, in part, by other things and events on screen. None of the items are real, they are all figments of the imagination. ALL items, actions, and “physical matter” have no meaning other than that assigned to them by the creators and the players of the games.

You knew the items in your world were made of atoms, right? Now remember that you are also made of atoms. Atoms only consist of energy and information, not things. This means that there really isn’t a physical brain in your head, which is a little scary. Yes, if you “injure” your head, it will change your existence- in this “physical” world, as per the rules of the game. Your Spiritual self isn’t physical and thus cannot be damaged, destroyed, or eliminated. That’s good to know!

Looking at Things Differently

A couple of sessions ago, we asked at the end of our Nugget about studying how things come into existence, “How do we study that?”, well, now that we covered monitoring our thoughts for their harmony or lack thereof to Omnipotence, we’re ready to tackle this topic. We want to remind our readers that all things that exist have their starting point in the Spiritual or non-physical. We’re including things that aren’t “man made” in the grand scheme of things on purpose.

Remember that passage in the Bible which said, in part, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” as God speaking? Most people who hear that phrase think “physical attributes”, something you can visualize, something you can see. We believe it’s a mistake to think in those primitive terms. We believe that we were adorned with Infinite Intelligence’s ability to create using our Spiritual power of thought.

As there is no such thing as “matter” in the universe, that is to say that the physical things we encounter aren’t made up of things, but rather, energy, it follows that thoughts, or awareness- is primary. Wait a second, you might say, what do you mean that things don’t exist? Well, they exist to us only because of Spiritual thought bringing them into existence in the realm we live in. Ever hear of the Higgs Boson? It is that atomic quality which encodes matter with mass, as far as we know. We are way over-simplifying it but the bottom line is that atomic physicists have had to come to grips with the apparent fact that there really aren’t “things” at all.

Further, there is ample scientific evidence that suggests that things don’t come into definite form until consciousness or awareness interacts with the potentials that exist to bring it into form. Thousands of scientific experiments have been performed in many variations attempting to prove this isn’t true. (scientists were quite comfy believing that matter was real and primary in our world until scientific evidence began to mount demonstrating that this was incorrect)

What’s happening now is that science has been reconsidering the order of things and placing the non-physical world at the head of events, which- by the way- corresponds nicely to what humanity knew all along. Our next session is going to get into the exercise which Haanel gives at the end of Part Eight of The Master Key System and we love that Haanel didn’t choose an easy topic to study, but rather a highly complex one which traces it’s roots all the way back to a collective mind. (The term “collective mind” is actually a misnomer implying individual minds exist; there is no truly individual mind in existence, and we’ll cover that, too.)

Question of the Day to ask Ourselves

“How do I find the origin of something physical?”

Habits Rule the Day

In Part Eight of The Master Key System, Charles Haanel speaks of the importance of imagination, so much so that the casual reader might miss the salient point he also brought up, and hammered home- forming constructive thought habits. Haanel implored us to form habits of creating our ideals, but also of building the habit of fidelity to those ideals we choose. What did he mean by that?

Haanel was telling us that once we had a constructive vision of what we wanted to accomplish, that we want to center our thoughts on that and avoid dissipating our mental power by allowing destructive chatter to enter into our minds as well. We want to completely shut out negative and destructive thoughts as these things take us out of harmony with Omnipotence.

We don’t want to entertain thoughts not helpful to our grand vision or that are inharmonious with the positivity of The Law of Attraction working on our behalf. Can we put words to that? Absolutely. Gossip is one form of inharmonious thought in action. The destructive nature of gossip prohibits it from being in harmony with Omnipotence and therefore will it would destroy our chances of accomplishing worthy ideals with the help of The Law of Attraction.

Entertaining fear is another destructive thought habit which must be completely eliminated in order to advance towards what it is we are envisioning as our ideal. Jealousy and envy compares our lot in life with others, but these cannot be sound comparisons because we don’t have access to all the details both physical and mental that make up another person’s station in life. These are also based on greed and fear and as such, cannot be in harmony with Omnipotence.

Frustration isn’t a virtue because it is a negative energy state which comes from our lack of faith that things will unfold for us as needed and in the right time. There’s a hint of anger in frustration as well, particularly as we allow this thought habit to build upon itself and attract to itself even more things to become frustrated about.

Forming the mental habit of focusing on our ideal, our goal, and being receptive and open minded to intuitive thought on what to do will lead us closer to our chosen desire. Forming the habit of recognizing and eliminating those thoughts which are destructive and harmful to those worthy ideals and eliminating them is key.

Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves

“How do I form the habit of analyzing all of my thoughts to determine which to keep?”

Creative Imagination in Harmony with Oneness

Well, that’s an odd title, isn’t it? Imagination- what is it? Imagination is the power behind all the good that has ever been, that’s being brought into the world today, and all the good that ever will be. Our world has been shaped by our imagination as a collective whole. Imagination enables the farmer to reap the benefits of planting and caring for their crop. Imagination forms bridges and buildings for the architect. Imagination is the substance from which organizations, small and large, take shape.

Imagination has created the writing implements sitting upon this author’s desk. Currently we use a computer to capture our words, and then put those words in a place where all can see them. Not only is the computer we use the product of imagination, so were the internet freeways these words travel on. Spiritual harmony with Omnipotence was required to form these things, and imagination is the plastic mold they came from (plastic meaning -of a substance or material- something which is easily formed or molded into shape- not the modern type made with polymer resin, although that too is easily shaped at first)

Those imaginative thoughts that were in harmony with Omnipotence, those constructive things that thought has rendered in physical form in our world are here by use of this great law. One can use the law to fashion such things without fully understanding the underlying principles involved; but one can vastly improve their industriousness if they understand the great law of the Universe governing all that is, even more. Understanding these principles isn’t the key to power, however, the application of them is.

So here’s the deal- in order for us to move forward in the greatest capacity, we want to be in complete and total harmony with Omnipotence from a vibrational standpoint. Next, we want to use our creative imagination as we hold in our mind’s eye that which we wish to see become a reality, and then be in receptive state of mind for intuition on what to do next. We are to go with our gut feelings and take action where indicated by those feelings, as we hold firmly upon the image of the end product in our mind’s eye.

How do we become master builders in this workshop? There is hard mental labor involved. We cannot get away from this fact. We are so used to just accepting the world around us as “what is” without giving any thought into how it came to be “what is”, but we will not be able to reach our full capacity without study, there is no getting away from this. How do we study such things? We’re glad you asked. We’ll be getting into that.

Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves

“Can I follow something back from it’s formation and see the thought that made it a reality?”

Pulling the Weeds in Our Mental Garden

Our last session talked about how we don’t ever want to entertain the emotion of hate. Hate is a negative emotion, one of many- but it is the supreme negative we want to avoid at all costs. All of the negative emotions have some degree of hatred associated within them. Charles Haanel went a little bit deeper on this topic in Part Eight of The Master Key System before he began on the meat of this chapter:

“You may freely choose what you think, but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law. Any line of thought persisted in cannot fail to produce its result in the character, health and circumstances of the individual. Methods whereby we can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which we have found produce only undesirable effects are therefore of primary importance.


We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought. If it is necessary, if its manifestation in the objective will be a benefit, not only to yourself, but to all whom it may affect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; it is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit an hundred fold. On the other hand, it will be well for you to keep this quotation from George Matthews Adams, in mind, “Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.””

Yes, most people would agree it’s not easy to control our thoughts but that’s because most people don’t practice meditation. We think the first step someone wants to take towards building up their ability to control their thoughts is to practice meditation. Why? Because with meditation we are actively engaged in quieting the mind from all thought.

The mind isn’t designed to meditate and will argue with us that we are wasting our time when we could be doing something constructive. In our mind will flow a zillion other tasks we could be doing instead of “wasting time” meditating. As Haanel pointed out, we must, absolutely must, control our thoughts so as to completely eliminate negative thoughts. How are we to do this if we cannot even go for a few minutes without thinking? It’s difficult enough for a meditator to eliminate negative thoughts, it would be nearly impossible for a person who doesn’t meditate to do this.

These are the reasons The Master Key System includes exercises in each chapter, the idea is to build up our strength as we go, and to start small and build our abilities one brick at a time. We’ve reached the point at which, unless we are actively doing these exercises, the material we’re learning here will be useless to us. This is why Haanel cautioned that unless you will absolutely follow through, you’d better not start at all.
