From The Master Key System, Part 15:

36.. For your exercise this week, concentrate on Insight; take your accustomed position and focus the thought on the fact that to have a knowledge of the creative power of thought does not mean to possess the art of thinking. Let the thought dwell on the fact that knowledge does not apply itself. That our actions are not governed by knowledge, but by custom, precedent and habit.

That the only way we can get ourselves to apply knowledge is by a determined conscious effort. Call to mind the fact that knowledge unused passes from the mind, that the value of the information is in the application of the principle; continue this line of thought until you gain sufficient insight to formulate a definite program for applying this principle to your own particular problem.

Can someone explain this in more simple terms and tell me exactly how to do this exercise? I just want to make sure that I do this exercise properly. Thank-you SO much :-)

What you should do if focus on the fact that knowledge itself is useles unless it is applied. To posess any useful knowledge you have to actualy apply this knowledge in order to receive its benefits. To do this you have to actualy do something not only think about it. Sometimes when we meditate we might receive insights with useful information. This information will soon be lost unles we use it for our or mankinds benefit.

Do your normal meditation and focus on the fact that information or knowledge is of no use unless it is used. Thats all you have to do and this exercises purpose is so that you will know that you have to use the knowledge when and if you do receive it.

Lets say you have a certain problem and you receive an insight that could help you with this problem. Write it down for it will soon be forgotten if you dont. If you don't use the knowledge received than it is of no good to anyone but if you use it and share it than it could help you and maybe others as well.

Also the knowledge of how to meditate and visualise the way we were taught in the master key system. If you just know this but dont actualy do the meditations it is of no help. You have to do the meditations and exercises to reap the benefits of it.
