Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:
“There is another factor that causes you to lose touch with yourself: relying solely on the evidence of your five material senses to tell you who you are . Your senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight are wonderful processors of sensory information, but they are not the source of your intelligence. They are channels for your intelligence to flow through so that you can materially experience what you create-and that’s all.
Let’s take a person who believes she is physically weak. Perhaps as the youngest child in a family, she was unable to defend herself against the advances of older siblings and consequently developed the concept that she couldn’t be strong. Sure enough, her belief took form as a weak, underdeveloped body. Now, as she looks out through her eyes and feels through her undeveloped muscles, all the sensory information going through her brain says, “I am weak.”
But is she? That’s what her brain says, but it’s not what her Silent Master says. The truth is, strength is one of the ideas in the Silent Master Consciousness; therefore she can express that idea.”
