Week 21 -My Ideas Are Not Big Enough

In reading the Master Key: Part Twenty-One, I was introduced by Haanel to a fabulous and remarkable concept that, at first blush, was a bit foreign to me.  Why, because I never thought of it before in the way it was presented.

21.6. “Large ideas have a tendency to eliminate all smaller ideas so that it is well to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies.”

Wow!  What a concept.  My ideas are not big enough.

Continuing: “This will remove innumerable petty and annoying obstacles from your path.”

BAM!  I got it.  Small ideas can be impacted by a certain obstacle far more than a huge ones.

The concept makes perfect sense.  It is a matter of degree.  Like the relation of our spirit to the Universal Mind.  Compare the big idea to the ocean.  These “petty and annoying obstacles” become like a bucket of water.  Throwing the bucket of small obstacles into the sea of big ideas will not raise the tide.

Golden Gate Bridge






Maybe my river of dreams is wider than most and I need a much larger / longer bridge to get to the other side; to get to the moon; to achieve the greatness I was destined to achieve.

Maybe my bridge over that river is not only going to get me to the other side, but will carry me “to the moon” or beyond.  I have no limitations.  The sub-conscious has no more difficulty with the infinitely large than with the infinitely small, so why not go for the gusto?



One thing that I have going for me.  I have help.  Not only from the Universal and the great teacher from Galilee, but from like-minded people that I can rely on and mastermind with, who will hold me accountable for my actions, or lack of action.




“If people aren’t making fun of your dreams, they’re not big enough.” – Alfredo Aguilar

I love it – it actually brings tears to my eyes.  I am starting to understand so much more than I did only a few short months ago.  I have the tools to dream big.

Now all I have to do is do it now.  Yes!  Now all I have to do is “DO IT NOW”.

Until next time, think right, live right

It is amazing how much bigger our dreams become when we allow them to grow. Geat post.

    Sometimes tough to focus to allow the growth, but I agree totally. Thanks, Richard.
