Early in 2001, while teaching the ancient wisdom teachings to my students, I explained to them that we were going to enter a period of time where in order to evolve as human beings, we were first going to go through a challenging and difficult time where it would seem as if all was lost and that the darkest nature of man would appear in many forms. I went on to explain that from the period of 2007-2014, we would see some of the worst of this lower level energy on display, as we were shifting from the last of a patriarchal age, into a new age of the divine feminine.
Here in 2010, roughly the middle of this difficult time period from 2007-2014, I see and feel how difficult it is for so many people. The economy, the politics, the wars and the mayhem. The news this week of three men knocking down a young woman at a political rally, while one man uses his boot to stomp on her head, giving her a concussion was most upsetting. As we are rallying the cry that we are “helping” women in other countries, we see this horrific display on television, not from overseas, but from right here in the U.S. The man who stomped the woman’s face by the way, is now asking for her to apologize to him.
In the midst of this chaos, it is easy to get caught up in it all and become very upset. This is a decade for great change and a time for action. It is important to remember though, that cooler heads prevail and with conscious forethought, change can occur without having to sink to the lowest levels of mental and emotional reactions.
One of my favorite authors is James Allen, who wrote As A Man Thinketh. His book focuses on the power of thought and how it affects our world. James covers the basic premise here in his quote –
“Mind is the master power that molds and makes, and man is mind, and ever more he takes the tool of thought, and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. He thinks in secret and it comes to pass; environment is but his looking-glass”.
Author Napoleon Hill also explored the power of thought and its effect on the person and the world by studying some of the most successful people of his time and how they used the power of thought to create their fortunes. He interviewed Andrew Carnegie, Charles Schwab, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Henry Ford, John Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and 500 more successful men and women, most of whom were millionaires. The result of his research was shared in his book, Think and Grow Rich. Napoleon called his teachings, ‘The Philosophy of Achievement’. His intent was not just to show people how to become financially successful, but to show them how to achieve anything they placed their thoughts on. Perhaps one of the most defining examples, was his own son, Blair, who was born without ears and was told by doctors he would never hear or speak, but he grew up to do both very well.
I bring up the teachings of Napoleon Hill and James Allen today as a reminder that no matter what we are seeing around us and no matter how difficult things may appear to be today, we have the ability and the power to make the changes we wish to see in our world. Many of us “know” this already, but at times, we can use a gentle reminder that we are powerful creators, not power-less against what is going on in the world around us.
I leave you with this video of Napoleon Hill sharing what he learned while researching his book and invite you to give some thought to the thoughts you are projecting today.
