CHAPTER 10 – POWER OF THE MASTER MIND – ***THE DRIVING FORCE
The Ninth Step toward Riches
This Chapter not only speaks of The Mastermind, it speaks of the POWER of the MASTERMIND! This is very significant! Power is Necessary to Have Money and Power is Also Necessary to Keep Money! This definition of the Mastermind: “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Sounds like a marriage made in heaven, right. Well it is a type of marriage. One cannot have a great marriage if only one is committed to this union of needed harmony. By the same token, one cannot have “GREAT” power without using a Mastermind! No man is an Island, comes to mind here.
I like this statement as an even more accurate description of the Mastermind, “Economic advantages may be created by any person who surrounds himself with the advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of a group of men (people) who are willing to lend him wholehearted aid, in a spirit of PERFECT HARMONY.” This is the economic side of the Master Mind.
Now the psychic side is the life changing side (to me), it is an awesome power! “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” Wow, what a math equation…1 + 1=3!!! Sounds like a great investment to me!
When I started understanding that my mind is energy and spiritual in nature, I understood more clearly why Jesus asked his followers to be one in thought and speech. Just as there is power in numbers and strength in a 3 corded rope, these harmonious minds form a bond, an affinity. This is a dictionary definition of affinity, “a natural liking for or attraction to a person, thing, idea, etc.” (a person, thing, idea, etc., for which such a natural liking or attraction is felt.)
The imagery given in the two streams, one being positive, leading to success and fortune, the other being negative, leading to poverty and mediocrity have been implanted on my mind. I want to follow those who are in harmony with my thoughts and goals of success, who think positive, who WORK at staying Positive, keeping themselves in the good side of the stream. The Mastermind is very much like a lifeline thrown to those in the negative stream, however they have to “choose” to grab the lifeline and do what it takes to stay in the positive stream. My hope is that more people will come to the realization that they are worthy to be in the positive stream, that they will open their eyes and see that lifeline being tossed to them. In turn as the Mastermind grows both in numbers and Power, we can send a shining beacon to those who are looking for help!
