The second important thing to know about ki is that this pure, original ki which created the universe is within you right now. You are one with this energy. I call your awareness of this energy presence within you the Silent Master or Silent Master Consciousness. In my first book, Seven Steps to Inner Power, I described your Silent Master in six "Images." Here are the first three images, which summarize the nature of your connection to the universal life force.
[Read the following carefully, and think about them deeply...]
1. YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND
Your Silent Master is your Real Self, your original Self. It expresses Itself ;through your thinking, though true Ideas and thoughts in your mind. It is your eternal Selfhood that exists apart from your brain ( which is a sensory processor only) and the personality traits imposed on you from your environment.
2. YOUR AND THE LIFE FORCE ARE ONE
Your Silent Master Consciousness was born out of the infinite Life Force creating and animating the Universe. You exist as a part of the Universe; therefore, It is the Life Force creating and animating you. It is the power that beats your heart. Because you are this Consciousness, whatever qualities the Life Force possesses, you possess also.
3. YOUR THOUGHTS CREATE REALITY
Your Silent Master Consciousness knows Itself to be immaterial in substance, but It also takes form (manifests) as your physical body and the material world around you. Thus, you may describe yourself as being both immaterial (spiritual) and material (physical) at the same time.
These three images give you important information about your Silent Master to bear in mind as we continue to discuss ki energy throughout this book. These images tell you how to contact your Silent Master. Where is it? In your own consciousness - not somewhere "out there." Since your Silent Master energy is aware within you own mind, you can direct this energy with your mind.
Also, since you and your Silent Master are one, you have the same qualities it has. For instance, since your Silent Master energy is creative, you are creative. You can create a life and environment in accord with your dreams and goals... With your Silent Master's harmony, you can manifest forms of beauty... With your Silent Master's joy, you can experience unconditional happiness...
with you Silent Master's love, you can appreciate your unique qualities and your one-of-a-kind individuality... With your Silent Master's power, you can be an actor instead of a reactor of victim.
And you can enjoy and express your Silent Master Consciousness while you are physical. you don't have to give up your physical being to know yourself as a spiritual being. Since everything that exists is a manifestation of original ki energy, your can interact with the energy of your environment and the world around you to forge your own destiny.
