Becoming Perfect

In point #10 of “The Hidden Manna” in Master Key Arcana (which is Week 25 of the “lost” parts of The Master Key System), Charles F. Haanel wrote:

10. When man’s mind is made perfect, then — and then only — will the body be able perfectly to express itself.

Do we have to achieve perfection or is close enough good enough?

After that, the questions just flow.

What is a mind “made perfect”?

Is that “perfection” unique to each individual or is there an actual state of perfection?

In other words, what does “perfection” — in this specific case — mean?

If there is a state of a mind “made perfect,” can we even achieve it? In other words, can we ever achieve this perfection when perfection rarely — if ever — exists?

Even though we are going to leave these questions unanswered, we are compelled to move on to new ones.

How long does it take for one to achieve this perfection? If we use The Master Key System as the plan for achieving a perfect mind, then we can assume it would be quite a while. Yes, it does take a person twenty-four weeks to go through the method, but it takes longer — much longer — to perfect many of the exercises. (Even though one doesn’t need to perfect them to gain great value from them!)

That being the case, is it even worth it to get a perfect mind in order to get perfect health because it just might be too late? It might takes years — decades? — to achieve the perfect mind. What if one only has a few years left to live?

Additionally, if a person is being ravaged by a disease, would he or she be able to undertake the rigorous mental work necessary to achieve the perfect mind that would then allow their body to “express perfectly”?

Tough questions.

There aren’t many — if any — answers.

I don’t have them.

They are for you to answer.

For yourself.

You’ll love these books because you’re not perfect yet.
