Week 12: With proper focus the picture is clear and distinct . . .

This is the time of season for more pictures.  Here in the past couple of weeks I have found myself taking more pictures than I have in a long time.  I’ve been capturing everything from birthdays, special moments with my son Tasker, to moments around the Christmas tree with co-workers.  I have notices a reoccuring event . . . the majority of the pictures taken are coming out blurry.  How frusterating!  Everything appears to be spot on only to have the picture appear hazy or vague . . .

I have just about decided that I’m not going to take any important pictures with my camera . . .  There could be another solution to the problem.


Putting it into perspective

If you have ever looked through the viewfinder of a camera, you found that when the object was not in focus, the impression was indistinct and possibly blurred, but when the proper focus was obtained the picture was clear and distinct.  This illustrates the power of concentration.  Unless you can concentrate upon the object which you have in view, you will have a hazy, indifferent, vague, indistinct and blurred outline of your ideal and the result will be in accordance with your mental picture.

Wow . . . this explains a whole lot!  Maybe it’s not my cell phone camera after all!  It’s quite possible that I need to learn how to hold the cameras still so that it can focus on the object I am trying to capture a picture of.  Just as my pictures have been turning out hazy and blurred so have the goals and wishes for my life.  camera

6. But your ideal must be sharp, clear-cut, definite; to have one ideal today, another tomorrow, and a third next week, means to scatter your forces and accomplish nothing; your result will be a meaningless and chaotic combination of wasted material.

7. Unfortunately this is the result which many are securing, and the cause is self evident.  If a sculptor started out with a piece of marble and a chisel and changed his ideal every fifteen minutes, what result could he expect?

22.  Things are created in the mental or spiritual world before they appear in the outward act or event by the simple process of governing our thought forces today, we help create events which will come into our lives in the future, perhaps even tomorrow.  Educated desire is the most potent means of bringing into actionthe law of attraction.

I absolutely love this lesson this week!  I feel as if things are slowly coming together.  There are a couple of key points that I learned this week and they are as followed:

  • There are three steps that are absolutely essential to discover our purpse in life: recognizing the knowledge of our power, the courage to dare and the faith to do.
  • The Law of Attraction is irresistable because it is a Natural law and all Natural laws are unchangable and act with mathematical exactitude  – there is no deviation or variation.
  • Wisdom is secured by concentration; it’s an unfoldment; it comes from within.
