In the Foreword to The Master Key System, Charles F Haanel says: "Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses".

Where are the human feelings? Where is the unconditional love? Where are the hope, enthusiasm, passion, joy and the mostly claimed happiness? Are they out of spirit?

It's true that going over the book, often are present significant references to the feelings, like: "this world is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent; it will respond to our desire in direct ratio to our purpose and faith;"... "our faith must be strong enough to generate a current of sufficient strength to bring our purpose into manifestation. *As thy faith is, so be it unto thee" (Part six #9); or "Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible" (Part twelve, answer 116); "In order to possess vitality, thought MUST be impregnated with love" (Part fifteen #10) and It is love which imparts vitality to thought and thus enables it to germinate"; and many others. But these references are not structurates as for a subsystem of a system. The role of mind is not only prefferentialy, but just overwhelming, when the book is about the globale knowledge basis and technics of manifesting, and not about only "power of mind".

Instead, in the teaching stuff of other very quoted source (on the Internet and InwardQuest site) - Jerry and Esther Hicks -, in the Scale of Emotions for human beings (posted on "Experiment 2"), knowledge is on the #1. position of emotions.

From ancients, generations of initiates preserved for us an other collection of teaching, more based on the magic, feelings , astronomy and possible ET knowledge, intuition, together with technics of co-creating and the domain of "Heart", including the feelings, the archetipal unconsciousness (see C.G.Jung writters) and the possible door to Akasha.

How should find his way the beginning seeker"?

Where are the clarity, the equilibrium and good advice?

The sentence "Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses", are a restricted application, only for way-start,like the assertion of A.Einstein: "Darkness is the lack of light"?

Succinctly, to feel, love, hope, etc., you have to think.

The universe itself was created by universal spirit thoughts, we are all His thought-forms. Anything you can think of, originates from a though. Without thinking human feelings will not be registered and interpreted.

The thought is information, significant, it proguces the idea, the shape, it had not energy for whole creator process. The thinking act and flow itself is a big consommer of energy. Thought initiates the primordial program of any big or miniature creation and stops without continuous support delivering energy. Alone, thought is like a bandmaster without orchestra. In the human plan, thinking and imaginating without desire, intention, feelings, will and acting is unproductive reverie.

I believe it is true.Heres why.It is believed by many that we are physical beings longing for and searching for a spiritual experience. I personaly believe that we are spiritual beings in the process of haveing a human experience It is written that God knew us before we became human.If that is true and I for one believe it is,then it must follow that we were something before we became human.the question then arises,what were we? If we were created in the image and likenes of our creator which I believe to be pure creative spirit,then does it not follow that we were endowed with at the very least some of that creative ability.We were placed in this physical universe to function in a physical manor.To do this we were endowed with physical abilities such as taste,touch,hearing,seeing and smelling which when allied with the spiritual ability to know has allowed us as humans to make great strides in our God given ability to create all that has been created by mankind.Spirit needs nothing other than thought to create while mankind must make use of the tools he was given to create so long as we find ourselves in this physical environment.Bering in mind that the best one can do is to offer an opinion I offer an invitation to all interested parties to critique what I have offerd in my feeble attempt to answer your very important question .God bless you.
