Here are summarized all the texts that deal with the basics
Finding the Truth
IKE: The world is what we think it is.
This principle represents the basic idea that our world corresponds to what we think about it. Strictly speaking, we go through our thinking
People and events in our lives. The problem here is that it is not only our conscious thinking that achieves this effect,
but also the thinking of our unconscious. This leads to problems when our subconscious has a different idea of what we want than our mind has.
Especially since most of our thinking happens unconsciously.
This is the first principle of HUNA from Hawaii, which is a very practical implementation of the universal hermetic principles. Something to work with directly.
But how can we be sure that we really think "the truth"? Say that our thoughts are right?
If you simply observe what information is constantly presented to people, then it becomes clear that thinking is to be directed here in a targeted manner. This is called manipulation and most of these methods are very easy to understand. This ranges from constant repetitions to targeted framing, which means that content is formed from the information that they do not originally have and that usually has nothing to do with the truth.
But how do we get to know the truth?
Quote Charles Haanel: "It is the few who know that the things they see are only effects, and understand the causes by which these effects were brought into existence." (MKS 8.29)
Here I would like to insert the exercise from the 8th chapter of the Masterkey System, and yes, I know some are reluctant to do the exercise as prescribed by Haanel with a warship. Because you don't want to manifest something like that. Well, is an argument, so if it bothers you, take something else big, a cruise ship, a merchant ship or whatever.
But now to the exercise:
Take the same position as before and imagine a battleship. See the grim monster floating on the surface of the water. There seems to be no life anywhere; everything is silent. They know that the vast majority of the ship is out of sight underwater. They know that the ship is as big and as heavy as a twenty-story skyscraper. They know that there are hundreds of men who are ready to go to their task immediately. You know that every department is run by capable, trained, experienced officials who have proven to be competent in leading this wonderful piece of mechanism. They know that although it is seemingly unnoticed by everything else, it has eyes that see everything for miles, and nothing should escape its watchful eye. They know that although it seems calm, submissive and uninvolved, it is ready to hurl a steel projectile weighing thousands of pounds at an enemy many miles away; you can remember this and much more with comparatively little effort. But how did the battleship get to where it is; how did it come about in the first place? You want to know all this if you are an attentive observer.
Follow the large steel plates through the foundries, see the thousands of men employed in their manufacture. Go back even further and see the ore as it comes out of the mine, see how it is loaded onto barges or wagons, see how it is melted and treated properly. Go even further back and see the architect and engineers who designed the ship. Let the thoughts take you back even further to determine why they planned the ship. You will see that you are now so far back that the ship is something intangible, it no longer exists, it is only a thought that exists in the architect's brain. But where did the order to plan the ship come from? The order probably came from the Minister of Defense. But probably this ship was planned long before the war was thought of, and that Congress had to pass a law approving the funds. There may have been dissenting voices and speeches for or against the law. Who do these MEPs represent? You represent you and me, so our line of thought begins with the battleship and ends with ourselves, and we ultimately find that our own thinking is responsible for this and many other things that we rarely think about, and a little further reflection will develop the most important fact of all, and that is if someone had not discovered the law, by which this enormous mass of steel and iron could be made to float on the water instead of immediately getting to the bottom, the battleship could not have arisen at all.
This law reads: "The specific gravity of a substance is the weight of any volume of that substance compared to an equal volume of water." The discovery of this law revolutionized any kind of sea voyage, trade and warfare and made the existence of the warship possible.
You will find exercises of this kind of invaluable value. When the thought is trained to look below the surface, everything takes on a different appearance, the insignificant becomes significant, the uninteresting interesting; the things we thought were unimportant are seen as the only truly vital things of existence. (MKS 8.30-8.33)
If we practice in this way to trace events and things to their origin, we already come quite close to the truth and do not allow ourselves to be manipulated so easily.
Here I deliberately omit the question of whether there is one truth or only many realities, this would be a separate topic.
And coming back to the exercise, it suddenly makes sense to ask who even came up with the idea that you need something like a warship (or military power in general) at all.
To conclude this long text, I would like to mention the inductive thinking that Charles Haanel speaks of specifically in Chapter 11:
"Inductive reasoning is the process of objective reasoning by which we compare a number of separate instances until we see the common factor that produces them all." (FMD 11.1).
"Induction is done by comparing facts. It is this method of studying nature that has led to the discovery of a law that marks an epoch of human progress." (MKS 11.2)
Bottom line: If the world is what we think of it (and it is), we should constantly carefully review what we think. Otherwise, we make ourselves vicarious agents of forces that pursue goals that usually do not serve our well-being.
Question everything. Really everything. And if you ask why, you've already made a lot of progress.
Thanks for reading this slightly longer text.

The spiritual value of money
Recently, I "stumbled" upon a statement that leads me to write a text that I have been thinking of for a long time.
The quote reads: "Wealthy people make their money work for themselves instead of working for money."
The question now is whether money can work at all. Let's ask Charles Haanel, who says in the Masterkey System, among other things:
"Wealth is a product of work. Capital is an effect, not a cause; a servant, not a master; a means, not an end". MKS 16.1
As well as
"Wealth should therefore never be pursued as an end, but only as a means to achieve a goal. Success depends on a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of wealth, and those who seek such success must formulate an ideal that they are willing to strive for." MKS 16.5
To explain what Charles Haanel means exactly by this, I would have to mention many parts of the Masterkey system, not for nothing you should not only read it, but study and internalize it properly.
The MKS was also the basis for "The Secret", but even there only a tired copy of the essence of the power of thought was conveyed. Although I don't want to speak "The Secret" badly, after all, it has brought a lot of people to deal with the spiritual laws. Some books that have jumped on the bandwagon have simplified the subject even more, according to the motto: "Think that you are rich, order it from the universe and it will happen." And did it happen? In most cases not.
Charles Haanel repeatedly emphasizes the conscious interaction with the Universal Consciousness, with omnipotence. What does he mean by that?
When we look at nature, we always recognize the pursuit of growth in a perfect system, it does not take anything away from anyone. "Nature makes two blades of grass grow where one grew before, and the power of mind enables man to do the same." Of course, one can now object that nature does take something, for example in typical prey animals such as mice or rabbits, but here nature provides a balance, because these species reproduce very generously. Nature is a good way to see how this Universal (Divine) Consciousness works in the world.
Let's get to the point. Why was money created in the first place? People learned quite early on that it is useful to specialize in certain skills and exchange the results of your work for other results that others can do better. And to simplify this barter, money was invented.
Until money itself became a commodity and the interest system was invented. In the first step, money was lent, which must then be repaid with interest. Someone borrows 100 thalers, but has to pay back 110 thalers. However, these 10 additional thalers must first be generated. In addition, the banks not only lent what others had paid in there as a savings deposit, but also in the confidence that not all savers would like to have their money back at the same time, they lent the deposits "several times". The second step was to decouple money from real values, i.e. the abolition of the gold standard. From then on, the money only had the value that the users assigned to it, i.e. it lives only from the acceptance of those who use it. What is also worth mentioning is that the central banks that manage the money are private intuitions and thus simply economic enterprises. They "lend" money created out of nothing to the states and receive it back with interest.
As Henry Ford aptly put it: "If people understood the financial system, we would have a revolution before tomorrow morning."
If you understand all this, you can also see why there is always a demand for "economic growth". More and more must be generated to satisfy this insatiable compound interest monster. In addition, more and more wealth is accumulated by a few, which is no longer in the economic cycle. So more and more money has to be generated by the central banks, a real vicious circle.
Because at some point the markets are saturated, which means that almost all people have already acquired what they need to live and the luxury they could still afford, and thus the economy comes to a standstill. At some point, even the best advertising campaigns no longer pull, people voluntarily no longer buy. So you come up with something to force people to consume, such as a supposedly man-made climate crisis in which an innocent gas was declared the number one villain. Or you stage wars in which you not only earn from weapons, but also afterwards in the rebuilding of the destroyed infrastructure.
And here the spirits also differ between the spiritually awakened and those who want to skim off only for themselves without regard for others. And so that something is taken away from others, without consideration.
Those who awaken spiritually and are responsible generate wealth in such a way that it is done for the benefit of as many participants as possible.
Finally, a quote from Haanel:
"The knowledge that when we violate the rights of others, we become moral spikes and get tangled up at every bend in the road should be an indication that success depends on the highest moral ideal, which is 'The greatest good for the greatest number.'"

What are beliefs, anyway?
"Be it done to you according to your faith" is such a common and often quoted phrase, but what does it actually mean?
Originally it comes from the Bible and is attributed to Jesus, who said this again and again in different forms. And of course the church tells us that it means faith in God. But this is exactly not what is meant, this is not what even Jesus meant. Because it is equally valid whether you believe in any God or not, this statement is independent of it.
But from what does our faith really result? Everything that we have experienced and learned up to now and have recognized as true, is our faith. And many of these beliefs we have taken over from others and some we have also made through our own experience. For example, as children we could believe our parents that we would burn ourselves on a hot stove, but we could also try it out ourselves and thus make the painful experience that this must be true.
Whereby it is necessary to mention the first special feature right away, and these are the "fire runners". These are people who walk barefoot over a footbridge full of glowing coal or charcoal without burning their feet. This ritual, originally initiated only spiritually, consists of the participants putting themselves into a trance in which they believe they will not burn themselves, and in fact they do not burn themselves.
A little quote on this right away:
"I can't believe that!" said Alice.
"No?" said the queen pityingly. "Try again: take a deep breath, close your eyes..."
Alice laughed. "I don't need to try at all," she said, "you can't believe something impossible."
"You just won't have the right practice at it yet," said the queen. "At your age I used to spend half an hour a day on it.
At times I have believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Lewis Carroll, Alice Behind the Mirrors
So we can state that everything we have ever experienced that has come into our realm of experience has become our beliefs. And these beliefs together form our beliefs,
from which we generate our attitudes.
Or in short, they all together determine our worldview or paradigm from which we perceive the world and judge events and things.
So we can divide our beliefs into those that empower us and those that limit us. Everything that empowers us are the beliefs about our possibilities and strengths. And anything we believe is impossible are the limitations or boundaries.
It is also worth mentioning here that things and events that we think are impossible cannot enter our consciousness.
Fortunately, however, our beliefs and convictions are not static, as if set in stone, we can evolve and keep shifting our limitations.
To do this, however, it is first necessary to become aware of one's own beliefs. But how do I do it best? By questioning myself and first thinking about how I see myself.
The following classification can be helpful here:
Here we are at the deepest level of our being, asking ourselves the questions "Who are we?", "Why are we here?", and "What is the meaning of my life?".
Like no other level, these questions and the answers we find permeate our view of things. And every change on this level
results in profound changes on all other levels.
If you pay close attention to who has gained deeper insights into this being, you will always find people who have gone through deeper crises,
very often near-death experiences or out-of-body experiences.
Here we find the basic self-image and the central values underlying this, as well as what one sees as one's task or mission. The question is,
how does one see oneself?
As I have already indicated, this is where we find all the experiences we have had up to this point. The result of these experiences is abstractly expressed by us as beliefs, the sum
the sum of all beliefs and the resulting attitudes we call our paradigm.
Here we can also immediately distinguish within these beliefs whether they enable us to expand or whether they limit us.
Depending on our beliefs and the points above them, we can then think about what we are good at,
where our strengths lie and what strategies we want to use to master our lives.
It is also instructive to reflect on our own behavior, this means we think about how we react to the environment and to others.
Once we are done with this list, we can revisit it starting from scratch. Since we create our reality with our conscious and unconscious thinking, but only the conscious thinking is known to us and can be directly experienced, we could observe what is all in our reality. Because this is "only" the effect or reflection of our complete thinking and therefore also of the unconscious.
If we have now recognized by these considerations who we are at the moment and how we think, we can consider what we would like to change.
Here again the above classification is useful, because a change in the higher levels will hardly cause a change in the lower levels.
This means that if I change my behavior, my abilities will not necessarily change with it, if my abilities change, my beliefs and attitudes will hardly change and if I change my attitudes, my beliefs and attitudes will hardly change.
beliefs and attitudes will hardly change and so on.
On the other hand, a change on the lower quantified levels will always result in a change on the higher quantified levels.
To illustrate this with an example:
Someone gives me a piano and I have the firm belief that I cannot play the piano and cannot learn to do so. Then I just have one more nice piece of furniture.
If I try to learn it against the belief that I cannot learn it, then it is futile effort.
But if I change the belief in that I believe I can learn it, then I can learn it and thus expand my abilities.
And if we think about how changing our worldview on a spiritual level affects our life, then it becomes clear how it works.

What does this quantum physics actually say?
Actually quantum physics says as a main statement that matter as we know it is actually also only a form of energy, atoms are actually only empty space full of energy which moves like a vortex. Now Einstein has already shown this with his formula E=mc². Means actually only, energy is equal to mass times square of the speed of light. The practical proof has shown us the atomic bomb.
In the case of light, it has long been known that it has both particle and wave properties. Quantum physics now shows that this is true for all matter. If you measure the mass and weight of an atom,it appears as matter, if you measure voltage potential and wavelength,it appears as energy. From the view of the quantum physics the universe shows up as an integration of interdependent energy fields which influence themselves among themselves. And with this statement we are at the core statement of most ancient philosophical systems that everything is interconnected.
The question now is, why then can't I reach through the top of my desk, why can I operate the keyboard of my computer, why is it all so real? Because I vibrate on the same frequency, that's why things offer me resistance. And what is perception anyway? "The bleep" (www.thebleep.de)shows very clearly that perception originates in our head, what our sense organs convey to us only becomes what we perceive in the brain.
Quantum physics teaches us now however also that nothing is really real, because one can determine the place of a particle only if one observes it, objectively seen one can never say, where it is straight. This is shown very clearly in the double-slit experiment.
As if that were not enough, quantum physics also challenges time as a reality.We are used to thinking in four dimensions. Length, width, height and time. Quantum physics calculates with more dimensions, because otherwise it does not work and there also the time becomes a perception, which is an illusion.
This short introduction is not to show that Newton's law is now invalid, there is still gravity and the force of attraction in general, it is only to show that there is much more behind it than previously thought.
Here are a few core statements of quantum physics
Statement 1: The empty space
Considered exactly, everything we see is in the main empty space. Let's take the nucleus of a hydrogen atom and enlarge this nucleus to the size of a soccer.
Then the associated electron circles around this atom in a distance of 30 KM, in between there is nothing.
Statement 2: Is a particle matter or wave?
The answer is, both and. Interestingly, depending on the attitude of the observer, a particle behaves like matter or like waves. So the observer determines what the particle is.
Statement 3: Quantum jumps and probability
That the electrons orbit their nucleus on exactly defined paths has probably heard everyone in the physics lessons. But if the electrons change their orbit, then they leave the old orbit and appear at the same time on the other orbit. And one can never predict when the electrons change their orbit.
Statement 4: The indeterminacy principle
If you measure the location of a particle, you cannot measure its velocity at the same time and vice versa. This is called the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
Statement 5: Non-locality, EPR, Bell's theorem and quantum entanglement
Since Albert Einstein did not like quantum physics, he and physicists Podolsky and Rosen (EPR) wanted to disprove this unloved quantum physics. So they shot two particles in exactly opposite directions into space with a particle source. If you now act on one particle, the other particle changes in the same way. This so-called entanglement was proved by the physicist John Bell in 1964 and has been confirmed again and again in experiments in the meantime.
Conclusion from these statements:
Every human being is an observer of his environment in the sense of quantum physics and influences it. According to the Copenhagen interpretation,
a particle is only a particle when it is observed. The consciousness lets the environment come into being first.
The only problem is that while we consciously process 2000 bits per second, unconsciously we process 400 billion bits. We all determine our world by our mostly unconscious beliefs.

What is the matrix
The term matrix appears more and more often, I think it was created by the film of the same name. This film, in fact I mean the first part, is outwardly an action movie with a new idea behind it, if you look closely and understand then it is highly spiritual.
The main character of the film is Thomas Anderson, a programmer who travels the net under the pseudonym Neo as a hacker and is looking for the answer to the one question: "What is the matrix?"
One night, when he fell asleep in front of the computer, the prompt suddenly appears on the screen:
"Wake up" "You're in the Matrix" "Follow the White Rabbit"
He meets Trinity, a woman who warns him, he is observed, one is looking for him. This is followed by an encounter with Morpheus, who offers to take him out of the matrix and show him the truth.
"If you choose the blue capsule then everything remains as it is, you believe what you want to believe and live on in your dream world, if you choose the red capsule then I will show you the truth and lead you into the deepest depths of Wonderland".
Neo, of course, chooses the red capsule and learns that he lives in a computer-generated dream world and that people live in slavery through intelligent computers. This is, of course, the fiction in the film, but what exactly is the matrix?
Modern quantum physics shows us that matter as such does not exist at all, it consists of 99.99 % empty space. String theory from quantum physics assumes that everything is only vibrating energy, and the Copenhagen interpretation says that all possible realities exist simultaneously and only the conscious observer lets one reality out of the abundance of all possibilities. Collapse. In addition, quantum physics explains that because of the entanglement everything is connected and time is not only relative, but probably does not exist at all as we perceive it. Sorry, it's a bit short, but you can't explain quantum physics in three sentences. On the other hand, the term quantum is now used in some cases very misleadingly. So there is quantum healing, quantum resonance, quantum computers and so on. A lot of people who want to sell something simply put the term quantum before it and thus increase sales rapidly. So there is also a lot of quantum nonsense being tapped.
The conclusion of these statements is what all the old wisdom teachings have already said:
"Consciousness creates reality".
Two questions now arise.
The first is :"What is reality?"
Morpheus says: "What is the reality? If you understand what you see, feel, smell, taste, so these are only electrical impulses interpreted by your mind." Well, this statement is not entirely wrong. When we look at what we actually perceive, it quickly becomes clear that this is only a fraction of what is there. For example, our retina only perceives a very coarse block graphic, actually it is not recognizable. What we see is created by interpretation in our brains. Other creatures such as the eagle, which is known to be able to see very well far away, or the cat, which can see in the dark, have a completely different sense of vision.
The fact is that, in order to be able to perceive something, we must have a connection to it. For example, there are telling statistics that accidents between cars and emergency landingaircraft occur above average on American highways. The reason that no one expects to encounter a plane on the road.
It is also known that after a mild stroke, in which the area responsible for recognizing noses was destroyed in the brain, patients were able to describe complete faces afterwards but were unable to see the nose.
On the other hand, we take considerably more than it would actually be possible. For example, baseball is about a thrower throwing a ball that has to hit the bat. If you just take the speed of the ball and the nerve guidance speed of the bat, it is impossible to hit the ball. If the bat hadn't had a clue where the ball was flying, he wouldn't have a chance to hit it.
The second question is: "What is consciousness?"
Consciousness is all we think and the interesting thing about it is that here the greatest part is taking place in our unconscious
and does not cross the threshold of consciousness. Here it is quite useful to imagine the unconscious like a small child, it does not think,
but act according to what it already knows, what it has learned so far. It is our best friend and always strives to help, but is often also based on information that is not or no longer useable.
Well, I create my reality through my thinking, but you do it just like everyone else does. How does this fit together?
We all constantly emit thought energy, and the sum of all this energy creates reality exactly as we perceive it.
We are all part of the consciousness that reality first creates, you as much as I and everyone else.
One can imagine this as an energetic network that connects everything, like threads in a huge network. Now not all threads are equally strong, and the stronger threads influence reality more than others.
So it is with our encounters with others, the fleeting encounters, the brief glance in passing creates a thin thread,
the intense encounters sometimes come very close to steel ropes.
Thoughts are energy and their effect is determined by three parameters: the direction of thoughts, the strength of thoughts, and not least the frequency.
The direction of thoughts determines where they show their effect, because energy follows attention. The strength can best be compared with the waves in the sea and it quickly becomes clear that the higher waves have a stronger effect than the small ones. The strength of the waves is best influenced by emotions, the more emotions are in play, the more power the thought has. The frequency determines the plane at which the thoughts manifest themselves. And here it quickly becomes clear that with the frequency of our thoughts we hardly come into the realm of directly creating material objects, although some yogis are said to be able to create short-term volatile objects.
It is clear from what has been said that we always resonate with what we are and not to what we want,
if our desires are actually borne by lack, then we draw further deficiency into our lives.
But how can I change my unconscious, which is the vast majority of my thoughts?
The unconscious will easily embrace new beliefs if they do not contradict the old beliefs.
And it will adopt beliefs when the old beliefs have proved illogical.
If old beliefs have lost their effect, it is also easy to replace them in the unconscious.
And the unconscious will adopt beliefs that are demonstrably more effective than the old ones.
A very important point in the shaping of reality is the counter-proposal,
that is, whenever I focus on something negative that does not help me,
then, if possible, I immediately focus on the opposite, which is of good use to me.
We create this reality, whether we like it or not, we are the Creator and we cannot create.
We can only decide whether we do it consciously or not. Since ever, there have always been individual people,
who knew this principle and made a secret of it. To have power over other people and that worked then as now,
as long as people did not know what was happening, and even now with those who do not know this principle.
What are the methods to prevent people from knowing the truth?
On the one hand, of course, we must ensure that people have no idea of their power to influence reality,
Better still, it's better to tell them that something like this doesn't work.
If you then add to the situation that they are completely powerless lyrised at the mercy of the existing reality, then that is even better.
Manipulating belief systems also always works quite well, because faith is the driving force of thought.
It is also important to teach people to lie, because then their thoughts lose power.
And those who try to make the secret clear, yes, you just have to get rid of it.
And that's what happens every day now. Manipulated news, distracting shows for popular stupidity,
Advertising and manipulation wherever you look. The main thing is that everyone is preoccupied with some minor issues.
In this film, Neo learns to liberate his mind and to be the chosen one who can change the matrix at will.
What about you? Which way do you choose?
Welcome to the real world
"I can't tell you how it all ends, I can only show you how it all starts"
