Week 20 – Fear or Faith?

“Fear is a powerful form of thought. It paralyzes the nerve centers, thus affecting
the circulation of the blood.
This, in turn, paralyzes the muscular system, so that fear affects the entire being,
body, brain and nerve, physical, mental, and muscular.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XIX

This start of the Master Key nineteenth chapter made me think of this piece from Pink Floyd´s famous album “The Wall”.

What is it that causes fear to be so common?

Everybody knows that we´re only born with two fears:

  1. Fear of LOUD NOICES
  2. Fear of FALLING

So one must conclude that every other fear is learned behavior….

Where did we learn it?

Might it be that all the media input we receive everyday does actually NOT mirror the true state of this world?
That the human population is bombarded with negative images and messages just because they sell?
Or is it actually a way to control the population by paralyzing it through fear?

I leave it to You to chose the degree of conspiracy here….

You don´t need an enormous amount of critical thinking, though, to see that some counter measures are definitely potentially helpful!

Here are a few good ones to start:

We can all find the solution to living a life of FAITH and PURPOSE in our own thought, Haanel puts it into writing beautifully:

17. You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.
18. All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power. Events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.
19. A knowledge of cause and effect as shown by the laws governing steam, electricity, chemical affinity and gravitation enables men to plan courageously and to execute fearlessly. These laws are called Natural Laws, because they govern the physical world, but all power is not physical power; there is also mental power, and there is moral and spiritual power.
………
23. This power is superior because it exists on a higher plane, because it has enabled man to discover the law by which these wonderful forces of Nature could be harnessed and made to do the work of hundreds and thousands of men. It has enabled man to discover laws whereby time and space have been annihilated, and the law of gravitation overcome.
24. Thought is the vital force or energy which is being developed and which has produced such startling results in the last half century as to bring about a world which would be absolutely inconceivable to a man existing only 50 or 25 years ago. If such results have been secured by organizing these mental powerhouses in 50 years, what may not be expected in another 50 years?
25. The substance from which all things are created is infinite in quantity; we know that light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second, and we know that there are stars so remote that it takes light 2,000 years to reach us, and we know that such stars exist in all parts of the heaven; we know, too, that this light comes in waves, so that if the ether on which these waves travel was not continuous the light would fail to reach us; we can then only come to the conclusion that this substance, or ether, or raw material, is universally present.
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XIX
