Meditation Exercise 2 is from Part 2 of the Master Key System.
This exercise continues from the first meditation.
The intention of the author was to start with the first one and not skip ahead to the next one before each one has been completed as instructed.
Meditation Exercise 2
Last week I gave you an exercise for the purpose of securing control of the physical body. If you have accomplished this you are ready to advance. This time you will begin to control your thought.
Always take the same room, the same chair, and the same position, if possible. In some cases it is not convenient to take the same room, in this case simply make the best use of such conditions as may be available.
Now be perfectly still as before, but inhibit all thought.
This will give you control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and will enable you to entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire.
Continue this exercise until you gain complete mastery.
You will not be able to do this for more that a few moments at a time, but the exercise is valuable, because it will be a very practical demonstration of the great number of thoughts which are constantly trying to gain access to your mental world.
– Charles Haanel
Cause and effect is as absolute and undeviating in the hidden realm of thought as in the world of visible and material things. Mind is the master weaver, both of the interior garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance
