The beauty of Key to Yourself is seen through Venice Bloodworth’s insightful approach to combining modern psychology and the very same principles taught thousands of years ago by master teachers such as Jesus. In searching for her own spiritual enlightenment, Venice Bloodworth found the root of true happiness based on concepts of spiritual psychology that disclosed the power of the mind to think itself to wellness, prosperity, and peace. Although the world has changed drastically over time, people are still confronted with the same fears and inner conflicts. Key to Yourself meets these challenges with ageless wisdom and boundless compassion.
This beautifully written book puts forth new concepts of reality. Bloodworth felt these concepts, which are inherent in most religious philosophies, would be proven by modern psychology. In fact, they have been proven by modern physics. Bloodworth's book reduces complexities to simple to understand certainties in much the same way the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know" puts theories of physics into easily understood pictures. Her work will uplift even the most down trodden spirit.
Follow Bloodworth's blueprint for life and you will enjoy rewards of great magnitude.
SINCE THE dawn of human existence and through all the succeeding ages mankind has recognized the mighty invisible force that governs and controls the universe and has tried to understand and use this power. In ancient China, in mysterious India, and beneath the shadow of the Sphinx, the seers and Prophets sought to lift the veil that shrouds the mysteries of life, and each race has made its quest for the Holy Grail. In every country on the globe we have found and are still finding the impress of each stage of bygone civilization, while history is a glorious record of man's upward climb toward truth and freedom.
The early savage awed by the phenomena of the sun, moon and stars, the mystery of life and death, found satisfaction by creating a primitive system of deities to whose supernatural powers he attributed those things beyond his own comprehension, and as we trace him down through the ages, we find his ideals gradually changing to fit his improved mentality, until today we stand on the pinnacle of those bygone centuries the intellectual giants of all ages.
We have reached the sublime heights in literature and art; science has revealed infinite resources and undreamed-of possibilities; invention has lightened the burden of harsh manual labor and given us comforts, conveniences, and educational facilities beyond the mental grasp of our ancestors while the future possibilities of electricity stagger the imagination.
Today more than ever before we find a tendency to question the meaning of life. By the efforts of the few we have reached the present stage of civilization, and because men are wiser today, they cannot be satisfied with anything less than the truth.
THE TIME FOR INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT HAS COME. WE MUST DISCOVER FOR OURSELVES THE WHYS AND WHEREFORES OF ALL THAT BAFFLES US IN THE MARVELOUS SCHEME OF LIFE AND NATURE. EACH OF US MUST FIND HIS OWN PLACE IN THE COSMIC ORDER, AND REALIZE FOR HIMSELF THE TRUE MEANING OF LIFE. INDIVIDUALLY WE MUST FIND THE KEY TO DESTINY.
Psychology is the answer. The science of mind is the science of life, for in mind all manifestation finds its common origin. All progress — whether individual, national, or racial — has been, and will continue to be, in the mental realm, and the greatest battle of the future will be one of ideas instead of guns.
The majority of people are drifting on the high seas of life. No chart marks their destination, no rudder holds a course. They are at the mercy of the winds of chance, the rocks of doubt, the shoals of ignorance, and if they make some progress before the curtain falls, it is because they have used unconsciously the creative power, that is the birthright of every individual, and not any exact
In order that we may avoid aimless drifting, with its wasted energy and its painful collisions, we must know something of the mighty principles that govern us and the world in which we live, something of the great occult law of cause and effect under whose operation our lives can be filled with pain and poverty or joy and success.
In all the universe there can be no such things as luck or fate; every action, every thought is governed by law. Behind every bit of good fortune lie the causes that we ourselves have sometime, somewhere set in motion. Behind all ill fortune we will find the energy we, ourselves, have generated. Every cause must have a certain definite effect, there is no dodging the results, we reap what we sow with exact mathematical precision.
The writer has studied many religions and philosophies, from those told in the flowery language of the mystic East to the crisp, clear, scientific findings of modern psychology, and in all we find the same principles, the same immutable laws, ageless, changeless, eternal, moving in silent grandeur, laws that control our thought and from which there is no escape, whether the law be put into operation consciously or unconsciously.
It is apparent that a knowledge of these laws and how to bring them into operation for the benefit of ourselves and others is the most practical thing we could acquire, and in "The Key to Yourself" I have endeavored to set forth applied psychology in the simplest possible terms, so that everyone regardless of educational advantages may have an equal chance.
"The Key to Yourself" will take you into a new world of accomplishment, prosperity, friends and pleasure. It will give you a golden return if you will study it correctly and steadily. The inestimable value of psychology cannot be comprehended by a mere reading or superficial knowledge, - its true worth can only be ascertained by study, concentration and practice, and in all fairness to the writer and yourself, you are requested to follow the methods set forth herein faithfully. If you will do this, you will find that psychology will do for you what it has done for others, that it will actually produce the mental, physical, and material results for which you have so long been seeking.
THINKING is the true business of life. Thinkers rule the world. They always have and they always will. All people think, but the tragedy of life is that so few of us think creatively or constructively; so few recognize the fact that thought is a creative force. Every achievement in business, literature, philosophy, or science has found its source and expression through the mental efforts of the world's leaders. The outstanding figures of tomorrow are the creative and constructive thinkers of today.
We live in the same world and are as far apart as the difference in our thought processes. Some fail while others succeed; some are sick, others are healthy; some are miserable, others happy. We all want to blame luck or fate or some one of our fellow men, but the difference is within ourselves. We are the product of our prevailing habits of thought.
Each is building his own world from within; thought is the builder; subtle, vital, irresistible, omnipotent; and according as we use our thought forces do they bring us joy or sorrow, peace or pain, success or failure. Men, events and conditions are relative only;
EVERY EXPERIENCE WITH WHICH YOU MEET HAS BEEN BUILT FOR YOU BY YOUR OWN INTERIOR THOUGHT PROCESSES.
The world without is merely a reflection of what you have acknowledged as true in your world within, so if the state of your health or finances is not all you desire, you must look within yourself for the cause. Regardless of what the condition is, or how it seemed to have come about, its cause had to find place in your consciousness before it came into expression. That a man can change himself, recreate himself, improve himself, control his environment, and master his own destiny is not a theory with the writer but a matter of positive knowledge.
There is no such thing as luck or chance; on the contrary our lives are governed by law, by actual, immutable principles that never vary. Law is in operation at all times, in all places; mighty, silent, fixed laws that underlie every human action, that bring to us, with exact precision, the full measure of our thoughts. Laws that favor no individual, and are no respector of persons. In a sense there is nothing in all the universe but law; every tree that grows, every flower that blooms, every snowflakc that falls, testifies to the unceasing operation of this great law.
We all admit Natural Laws in regards to the vegetable kingdom; we also accept the fact that the sun, moon, stars and tides of the sea are controlled by law, but it has not occurred to the majority of us that man is just as subject to law as the vast panorama of nature. It is law that makes the universe so harmoniously exact; if there was not law we could never be sure the sun would rise or the seasons come in rotation.
THERE IS BUT ONE LAW, ONE PRINCIPLE, ONE CAUSE, ONE SOURCE OF POWER.
We cannot change the law, but by understanding and cooperation we may bring ourselves, through our thought processes, into harmony with the law and let the law work with us, through us, and for us.
It is natural for man to be healthy and whole in mind and body, and for him to abound in all good. When one learns this truth, and lives in accord with the laws of his being, health and prosperity spring forth naturally and abundantly.
The majority of people believe that peace and plenty on one hand, and poverty and sickness on the other is somehow interwoven in divine providence; but those who know the truth understand that life, health and abundance are a natural law of the universe, and thought is the active principle by which we are related to the things we need and desire.
THOUGHTS ARE THINGS. Thought causes vibration and sets in motion the Law of Mind. Since everything has its beginning in mind, and as thought, which is mind in action, produces form, we realize that thought is creative.
That which we call our subconscious mind, being a point in Universal Creative Law and being immediately available to us, guarantees that we have at our disposal the use of a law which is not only immediate, being inside of us, but it is also in connection with everything else in the universe.
It is the belief in separation from God which keeps our good away from us. It is the belief that binds us, and not any actual power. We are really bound by our false beliefs, and we shall never be permanently free until we experience a complete change of thought. This is what is meant by "The Renewing of the Mind."
