Realization of the Divinity Within
We’ve pointed out to many people that one of the important descriptors of God, or if you will, Universal Mind, is “Omnipresence”- which means being everywhere. Not only everywhere in today’s terms, but throughout time, both past and future as well as today. If this is truly accurate, and we believe that it is, then that means that God is within us as well, for the infinite nature of Omnipresence commands that fact to be true.
We’d like to mention, briefly, that the other descriptors of God, Omnipotence and Omniscience, are also important to us for if Omnipresence locates God within us, God’s other qualities are at our disposal as well. We are all powerful and all knowing, just as God is, once we learn to tap into our innate abilities.
As Part Twenty One of Charles Haanel’s The Master Key System draws to a close, Haanel centered his thoughts on the Truth. Let’s see what he wrote there:
As long as the people regard the Cosmic power as a power non-human and alien to humanity, so long will it be comparatively easy for a supposed privileged class to rule by Divine right in spite of every protest of social sentiment. The real interest of democracy is therefore to exalt, emancipate and recognize the divinity of the human spirit. To recognize that all power is from within. That no human being has any more power than any other human being, except such as may willingly be delegated to him. The old regime would have us believe that the law was superior to the law-makers; herein is the gist of the social crime of every form of privilege and personal inequality, the institutionalizing of the fatalistic doctrine of Divine election.
The Divine Mind is the Universal Mind; it makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites; it does not act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy or wrath; neither can it be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy or petition to supply man with some need which he thinks necessary for his happiness or even his existence. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual; but when the individual understands and realizes his Unity with the Universal principle he will appear to be favored because he will have found the source of all health, all wealth, and all power.
For the exercise for this part, Haanel implored the student to center their mind on the Truth. We’d like to refer you to that exercise in its entirety available online, but a thorough reading of the above paragraphs will give you direction on what Haanel was about to say in that last paragraph of Part Twenty One.
