It is now more than a fairy tale that technology especially computer technology with the use of internet is here to stay as part and parcel of our lives. The current situation of Corona-virus epidemic being one of the catalyst. Church services are more than any time before being held online via the internet, a thing our grandparents and generations before that could have not imagined. I am sure in a certain era a suggestion that church and or any religious meeting could be held via the internet would have been blasphemy.
The younger children of today unlike say those born prior to year 2000 are more technologically knowledgeable about for example computers. Most as young as two years old are able to type requests on computer systems for instance on mobile phones. It was therefore no surprise that my four year old son, Jireh upon being told a Bible story by his mother about Jesus healing using soil and spit, demanded a recorded video of the event. Despite reading him several Bible passages about the miracle Jesus performed with spit and soil, he said categorically that such a miraculous event could not have gone without being recorded on video.
The mother tried in vain explaining to him that there were no video recordings during Jesus’ time but the boy could not have it. He said it’s impossible for people to have missed recording on video such momentous happening by the messiah son of God, Jesus. Apparently the mother was only able to convince him when she chanced on a YouTube preach about the miracle by one other pastor. Upon watching the preach, only then was Jireh settled about it and when I asked him in the morning after being told this story by the mom, he told me the miracle and also assured me he can show me a video about it on YouTube.
This week’s quotes we continue from the book that states that a study of the creative processes of our thoughts and how to apply them is of supreme importance to each one of us. I am sure the selected quotations from this book will teach you one lesson two, read and enjoy:
THE CHARLES HAANEL MASTER KEY SYSTEM by Charles Haanel
“And as the most powerful forces of Nature are the invisible forces, so we find that the most powerful forces of man are his invisible forces, his spiritual force, and the only way in which the spiritual force can manifest is through the process of thinking. Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses, and thought is the only product of thinking.”
“Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude. ——— The attitude of the mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking ——– This is true because we must ‘be’ before we can ‘do,’ and we can ‘do’ only to the extent which we ‘are,’ and what we ‘are’ depends upon what we ‘think’.”
“All growth is from within. This is evident in all nature. Every plant, every animal, every human is a living testimony to this great law, and the error of the ages is in looking for strength or power from without. ——- The world within is the Universal fountain of supply, and the world without is the outlet to the stream. Our ability to receive depends upon our recognition of this Universal Fountain, this infinite Energy of which each individual is an outlet, and so is one with every other individual.”
