Here is my post from last year, just a snapshot of where I was at this point of my journey…it really holds true for me today…Enjoy.
Albert Einstein stated: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Well my friends, I choose to live my life as though everything is a miracle. This is a no-brainer for me because the way that I see it, There can be no other way. I have always believed in miracles, because as far as I’m concerned, Life itself is a miracle. After starting my journey on The Master Key Experience, My awareness of miracles has been heightened, But after this past weeks live webcast my awareness of miracles has jumped into Super-Duper Overdrive…From The Fabulous Davene’s lesson in physics to Mark J’s analogy of the ten year old kid in the batters box, He’s scrawny and scared, we can see his fear, but he stays in the box and we no longer have pity but we become inspired, because we are observers of greatness, we are all connected, we are all participating in this miracle. (By the way, I Love Baseball, so Baseball is a miracle also LOL)…And last but certainly not least, Trish told the beautiful story about her five year son who had never heard anything about God before…He said to her “Mommy I think I know what God is” Trish then said, “Please tell me , what is God?” and He calmly said “GOD IS EVERYTHING”…………WOW!!! This really hit home with me, because I have always felt, even as a small child, that God is everywhere and in everything. So I am in this state of grace, beautiful, miraculous flow and I will be perfectly honest with you, I am never going back. I am nature’s greatest miracle and life is beautiful……….By the way, Albert Chose to live life as though everything is a miracle.
I found The Master Key – Part Twenty-One to be so powerful. A while back I had some good powerful and productive sits, but lately my sits have been kind of dry and I had not felt any real connections, until after reading this weeks lesson…my sits have been awesome, I have had some good concentration and good connections. the whole lesson was awesome, but these two passages have helped me with my sits:
16. “If the desire is one which requires determination, ability, talent, courage, power or any other spiritual power, these are necessary essentials for your picture; build them in; they are the vital part of the picture; they are the feeling which combines with thought and creates the irresistible magnetic power which draws the things you require to you. They give your picture life, and life means growth, and as soon as it beings to grow, the result is practically assured.”
28. “For your exercise this week, concentrate on the Truth. Try to realize that the Truth shall make you free, that is, nothing can permanently stand in the way of your perfect success when you learn to apply the scientifically correct thought methods and principles. Realize that you are externalizing in your environment your inherent soul potencies. Realize that the Silence offers an ever-available and almost unlimited opportunity for awakening the highest conception of Truth. Try to comprehend that Omnipotence itself is absolute silence, all else is change, activity, limitation. Silent thought concentration is therefore the true method of reaching, awakening, and then expressing the wonderful potential power of the world within.”
It’s been a pleasure Folks, until next week I bid You:
Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
Here is my post from last year, just a snapshot of where I was at this point of my journey…it really holds true for me today…Enjoy.
Hello everybody, I hope that this day finds you well. I’d like to start out by wishing a great big KUDOS to our MK guidance team for that ground-shaking webby last Sunday it was in a word Phenomenal. I used the paired comparison chart and figured out my A & B and I am back on track, it’s crazy that just a few simple changes can make such a big difference and Wooden’s Pyramid of Success…So you’ve heard the term of being set up for failure or setting yourself up for failure…Well in our case on this MKMMA Journey we have been set up for success or given the tools to set ourselves up for success, not only did we all know this, but it was proven to us by going over Wooden’s Pyramid of Success, step by step as it has been presented to us over the last five months…Too Cool!!! In all of this Greatness of a webby the grandest highlight for me was when the Fabulous Davene explained the concept of having a Genetic Disposition to become more. I won’t go into the details but this literally knocked my socks off. I had always felt in some situations that I did not belong, like in school or at certain jobs, I just did not agree with the curriculum or methods that I was being taught or being instructed to perform at a job. I was never a person to conform, especially when the methods that I was instructed to perform to complete a task did not make any sense to me and when I had a better suggestion, I was shot down just to have management bring up my new idea months later as their own…(the scoundrels)…LOL Welcome to Corporate America Right??? It was not that I wanted the glory for the idea, but everybody’s job and life could have been so much easier during that time period… Anyway, now that I got that out of my system, when the Fab D. so eloquently explained this concept, It brought it all home for me, All those years of wondering why???….My questions have been answered….I have a Genetic Predisposition to become more and do more in this world…HALLELUJAH!!!
I just finished watching the film “Finding Joe” for the second time and if you have not seen this, then I highly recommend that you take a couple of hours and experience it. The film goes into some of the teachings of Joseph Campbell and really focuses on the Hero’s Journey…I came out of the movie with a much richer understanding of the Hero’s Journey. I won’t go into too much detail on the film, in case you have not seen it but I will share Brian Johnson’s thoughts on fear…It goes something like this: Fear is an inherent part of the human experience, it’s not about getting rid of fear, Where is it going to go??? There’s no where for it to go…We must have courage to move forward in spite of the fear that we feel. Courage is like a muscle, we must build it up, make it stronger. We must consistently go up to our fears and go one step past them…and another step past them….and another step past them and you’ll find that your comfort zone expands every time that you do the things that used to freak you out and these things will not freak you out as much anymore and you have this tool…You have the strength to literally to lift more in your life as you face your fears authentically. (Very Cool!!!)
It’s been a pleasure talking at You All today…Until next week,
I bid You Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
Here is my post from last year, just a snapshot of where I was at this point of my journey…it really holds true for me today…Enjoy.
Hello Friends, I hope that you are all having a great day today. We have been reading and learning all along that what we think is what we manifest in our lives and we all know now that this is a fundamental truth. In studying lesson 19 of The Master Keys this past week I had a great epiphany that “THOUGHT IS POWER” Thought has power over everything, over fear, over lack and poverty, over health and well being. I think that passage seventeen in this weeks lesson says it all…
“17. You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.” ……BAM!!!
WOW!!! So much power packed into such a short and simple statement. I think that if any person was to read this statement and believe it to be a truth and apply it to their life, then with no doubt, they would have great results…Of course it’s not as easy as it sounds due to the fact that we have all been conditioned in our lives that unless we buy a certain toothpaste or laundry detergent or a certain brand of corn flakes, or act in a certain way (I think you get the picture) that we won’t measure up to any kind of value in our society. What a sad state of affairs we’ve gotten ourselves into…Thank goodness that this incredible journey has found us and taught us all of these great truths and heightened our awareness so that we may greatly improve our lives and those around us and on a larger scale, the world around us.
I just watched the film “I Am” yesterday actually I watched it twice and what a great experience it was. I won’t go into all of the details, in case you haven’t seen it yet, but I will talk about a couple of the many things that I took from the film. In the film Tom Shadyac shows the contrast of the richest of the rich to the poorest of the poor and what is wrong with this picture? He shows the grandest estates and properties while across the street people are picking through garbage cans and across the border and around the world the poorest of the poor in their de-humanizing conditions. Tom states that the need to accumulate so much is a definition of insanity or mental illness. I refer to it as greed and it is a disease especially when so many have so little or nothing at all. The worst part is that greed is an accepted way of life in this world, especially in our own country. Another point that I took from the film is that through Love, understanding and awareness, we can all do something about this…we may not be able to personally change the world, but what about helping that person next to you or the person down the street or any person that you encounter along your path. It starts with us, if everybody did just a little to help another, imagine what this world would be like. I think we all had a good example of this through our new found awareness of Kindness. Tom sent a letter to someone asking the question, What is wrong with our world….and the response that he received was “I AM”………..It all starts with us………….Come on Peeps, We can do this!!!
I also watched the film “Finding Joe” another great experience….I will talk about that one next week, until then, have a great week.
I bid you Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
Hello Everybody, I hope that you are all having a great week. The virtue that I have been working on and observing this week is Persistence. The dictionary describes persistence as: To go on resolutely or stubbornly in spite of DIFFICULTIES. That’s the tough one, it’s easy to persist on something of interest when the going is easy and the path is wide and brightly lit and everything is going your way and everybody is interested in what you are trying to achieve and everybody is well-wishing and there is plenty of assistance whenever you need it…REALLY??? Is life usually this generous when you are starting a project??? NOT BLOODY LIKELY!!! LOL But seriously folks when we start out on a project that holds quite a bit of interest or importance to us, we usually start with many great ideas and plenty of ENTHUSIASM!!! For the most part the venture usually starts out positive and there are usually well wishers…not everybody, but some and at that point we could care less of the negative opinions of others because we are on a mission and we believe that we we are on the right path to do something great. Now you are on your way and things are going well but your research has started to dry up and you are seeking help and guidance from others and they may not be so cooperative and that once wide, brightly lit path has now become narrow and is now dimly lit and all of the opinions of the negative naysayers that you ignored at the beginning are starting to race through your mind and suddenly all of your well-wishers are not so positive any more and you start to wonder if you’re on the right path or if you’re just wasting time and resources…(I think you get the picture)…These are the difficulties and this is the time when persistence becomes key…This is when you need to dig your heels in, toughen up and just go for it no matter what. Before I started the MKMMA I did not understand any of these principles. I never attempted to start anything that was too difficult because I just assumed that I could not do it. When I did start any type of project, usually when the first difficulty or obstacle appeared I was done. I was in the habit of giving myself permission to quit without even a second thought.
Ever since I started the MKMMA Course everything has changed I have my DMP (Definite Major Purpose) when in the past I had no direction. I have replaced old habits with new good habits. Through The Master Keys and Og and all of the activities, guidance and exercises, everything has changed in my life…Long story, short…I now know that I can manifest anything that I want in my life and instead of giving myself permission to quit, I now give myself permission to succeed. I have given myself permission to Love and Become my future Self…I Persist and I Succeed.
I have observed persistence in others this past week I have seen it in Dogs and Cats and in other people, but if you ever want an excellent example in persistence, just watch a child. After observing children this past week I feel that I am now an expert in persistence. Children believe that they can do anything, that quality has not been taken from them yet. They ask many questions (Masterminding)…They will try and try again until they complete the task at hand…When they have a request they start asking the adults, if one says no, they move on to the next and so on until they complete their mission. It is fascinating, I could go on for hours….So if your ever in need of some persistence, just observe a child and you’ll be back on track.
It’s been a pleasure talking to you today, until next week…
I wish you Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
When I was a young little dude I was a Boy Scout…“A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.” I still strive to be all of these things everyday, especially being Kind. The Boy Scout motto is “BE PREPARED” I am learning that this simple statement is very important. My virtue that I focused on this week is “Well Organized”…Years ago I was a well organized person, But the last few years I have let things get into dis-array. I have had many many changes in my life the last few years and I just did not keep up that good habit of being “Well Organized” When you are not organized (And I don’t mean being anal about everything…LOL) But when you are not organized you are not always prepared for the opportunities that may present themselves in your life. Have you ever had an opportunity present itself in your life and for whatever reason you were not prepared and not able to receive that opportunity??? That has happened to me in my life and it is among one of the worst feelings that a person can have. We have learned that our thoughts are the cause and when when manifested it is the effect…Well we must prepare ourselves to receive that effect when it is manifested or we might miss it. When I say to prepare, I mean if there is something that we need to learn about it, we must learn it. “Knowledge does not apply itself.” Awareness is a big factor…We must be aware of the thing, after we have visualized and concentrated in our sits, we must be aware of the thing and expect it so that we don’t miss it…To quote Mark J. “Be the Observer”……………..We have all heard the expression being at the right place at the right time, well we might be at the right place at the right time, but if we are not prepared or aware we may miss it. So whatever it is that we are visualizing and concentrating on in our sits, We had better be prepared because it’s on it’s way. I have spent the past week getting things organized physically and mentally in my life and getting prepared. For instance there are a couple things on my DMP that I have no experience with and I have been doing some research and practicing certain things so that when it gets here (and it will) I will be so ready to receive it. So in case you missed it, we must “BE PREPARED”…LOL
In other news…Going back and re-visiting some of the past Master Key lessons has been so enlightening. It was great reading that good stuff again , but I really picked up on things that I did not see before or maybe I just did not have the understanding at that time but I had some awesome reads and sits this past week.
Well Folks, It’s been real…Until next week I bid you Peace, Love, Kindness and Happiness…God Bless.
Hello Everybody, I hope that you are all having a great week. This has been a week of transition for me, as you know I became my own boss as of last Friday the 16th…YAY!!! I really thought that I would be off and running to ramp up my home business this past week but as it turns out I have had many loose ends to tie up and many smalls things to be completed that I never had time to take care of when I was working for THE MAN…LOL. I can honestly say that I am all caught up and as far as building this business IT’S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!!! I have a new sense of liberty and I plan on having some fun and enjoyment in my new venture, isn’t that what it’s all about, if I wanted to be stressed and crazy I could have just stayed at my soul-sucking job…LOL. Here’s to FREEDOM…CHEERS!!!
My Man OG continues to keep me pumped up through out the day and the Master key Lessons continue to get more powerful each new week…Lesson 17 was so enlightening and powerful…A small sample…
2. The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence. To those who perceive the nature and transcendency of mental force, all physical power sinks into insignificance.
17. The intensity of one moment’s earnest concentration and the intense longing to become and to attain may take you further than years of slow normal and forced effort; it will unfasten the prison bars of unbelief, weakness, impotence and self-belittlement, and you will come into a realization of the joy of overcoming.
Talk about getting that pulse racing!!!
My sits have been a little weak this past week as opposed to before when I had some really powerful connections in my sits. I don’t know if I’m trying too hard or maybe I’ve been in transition this past week, but I just can’t seem to focus, my thoughts are all over the place. But there is hope…
12. The mind may place the ideal a little too high and fall short of the mark; it may attempt to soar on untrained wings and instead of flying, fall to earth; but that is no reason for not making another attempt.
13. Weakness is the only barrier to mental attainment; attribute your weakness to physical limitations or mental uncertainties and try again; ease and perfection are gained by repetition.
AND AWAY WE GO!!!
I have continued to experience Kindness both coming and going all of this past week, it sure does make the world a more pleasant place to inhabit.
The virtue that I have been focusing on this past week has been discipline, I have been observing people and have seen some very disciplined people and others…not so much. Unfortunately I fall into the not so much column, that’s why this virtue is closer to the top of my list. When you are at a paying job, it seems that you’re disciplines are thought out for you. You get up at a certain hour so that you can be to work on time. When you get to work you must get to the task at hand so that you can complete your work load by days end…If not you probably won’t be staying at that job very long, Its very simple logic and I did very well at my job…It was after work and on the weekends and at the present now that I have left the job world where my challenge begins. It is a matter of disciplining myself to get up at a certain hour, to get to the gym, and to work the traction points of my business…I just need to replace some old habits with some new good ones. I will persist until I succeed!!! AMEN & HALLELUJAH!!!
Have a great week Everybody…I bid You Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
Hello Everybody, I hope that you are all doing well. This has been a fabulous week...Kindness Rules. I have been noticing kindness everywhere this past week, whether it’s my kindness towards others or peoples kindness towards me or to others. Most of this kindness has always been there, but I was just never aware of it. I say most because I went out of my way to generate more kindness than usual and more came right back at me. What really blew me away was when I started noticing all of the acts of kindness that my Wifey performs for me and others on a daily basis, I always appreciated it but I never realized all of the tremendous kindness that flows from her. I am truly blessed. I have had many examples of kindness episodes this week here are the latest…
I retired from my traditional day job yesterday and H.R. was to have all my paperwork ready at 3:00 PM, when I arrived there they told me that they were unable to process my final papers and that I would need to return today to complete the process. Instead of getting upset, I said It’s alright, I understand and what is a good time for you in the morning…When I went in this morning they were very apologetic, they had all of my papers ready and they gave me a nice juicy gift card to Home Depot….Sweet…Kindness Rewards Kindness.
I stopped in at the bank today and the teller was just gleaming with kindness and I gave it right back to her. I wished her a good weekend and she replied that since I was not working today that I must have a 3-day weekend and I told her that I had just retired and that I do have my home business but that I did not have to report to a job anymore, she then congratulated me and said that their customer appreciation day had been yesterday and she went to the back and fixed me a bag of cool goodies and trinkets…Nice…Kindness Rewards Kindness.
The alliances has been really buzzing it has been so much fun reading, commenting and sharing…It has truly convinced me of the awesome power of a Mastermind Alliance…Can you imagine all of the beautiful vibes that we are sending out to the world…BEYOND AWESOME.
This past week has been both an eye opener and a life changer, I have noticed that the more time I spend focusing on Kindness the less time I worry about the negatives in the world…This has been a Super Fantastic Boost to my mental diet it has made it almost effortless. The world needs more people spreading Kindness and this all begins with Me…Won’t you join me…Together we can make this world a better place.
I really enjoyed performing kind acts without getting caught…You get to be furtive, shifty and sneaky, but it’s for something good and positive…How Cool is that???
I loved talking at all of you awesome Peeps today,…
Until next week, I bid you Peace, Love and Happiness, and may your days be filled with KINDNESS!!!
Hello Everybody, It’s great to be here in MKMMA-LAND. I hope that you all had a good week, my week was great and very productive. I am in awe of The Master Key – Part Fifteen. The whole lesson was magnificent but my favorite was the part about INSIGHT…
29. In the physical world there is a law of compensation which is that “the
appearance of a given amount of energy anywhere means the disappearance of the same amount somewhere else,” and so we find that we can get only what we give; if we pledge ourselves to a certain action we must be prepared to assume the responsibility for the development of that action. The subconscious cannot reason. It takes us at our word; we have asked for something; we are now to receive it; we have made our bed, we are now to lie in it; the die has been cast; the threads will carry out the pattern we have made.
30. For this reason Insight must be exercised so that the thought which we
entertain contains no mental, moral or physical germ which we do not wish
objectified in our lives.
31. Insight is a faculty of the mind whereby we are enabled to examine facts and
conditions at long range, a kind of human telescope; it enables us to understand
the difficulties, as well as the possibilities, in any undertaking.
32. Insight enables us to be prepared for the obstacles which we shall meet; we
can therefore overcome them before they have any opportunity of causing
33. Insight enables us to plan to advantage and turn our thought and attention in the right direction, instead of into channels which can yield no possible return.
34. Insight is therefore absolutely essential for the development of any great
achievement, but with it we may enter, explore and possess any mental field.
35. Insight is a product of the world within and is developed in the Silence, by
My sits this past week have been very deep and powerful because of concentrating on INSIGHT…
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…Haanel
This is a powerful awakening for me, this is a LIFE CHANGER… The more I sit and practice this, the deeper and stronger it gets, I’m not quite there yet but I persist until I succeed.
In other news…reading my Og warms my soul and I really love the flash cards along with the daily gratitude cards (I never realized how much I have to be grateful for) and I like reminding myself about something pleasant that has happened to me on a daily basis, I usually take these things for granted but these reminders really feel nice. The Franklin Makeover is cool, my first and weakest virtue is self-control. I noticed that most of my observations were on myself on how I was able to use self-control and sometimes, not so much. I did however notice others practicing this important virtue.
Well I look forward to reading some of your awesome blogs over the next few days and as always I look forward to the webby this Sunday.
Until next week I wish You, all My Peeps…Peace Love and Happiness…God Bless.
Hello all and welcome to my Master Key Experience…
I remember an old saying…”it’s all in your mind” that saying was meant as sort of an insult, so to speak…well those folks don’t know the half of how right they really were…You see everything that is or ever was, started in someone’s mind through their thoughts. Everything begins with our thoughts, so keep those thoughts positive and filled with Love, because whatever is going through your noggin right now is what is going to manifest tomorrow. We must also realize that our thoughts are all that we truly possess, as material things will come and go. We must also realize that our thoughts are the only true power that we have. I read something amazing today, that I want to share with you, it is so in line with our Master Key Experience (do some linking and some firing and wiring) have a listen to this……..
“That’s the essential difference between object-referral and self-referral. In self-referral you experience your true being, which is unfearful of any challenge, has respect for all people, and feels beneath no one. Self-power is therefore true power.
Power based on object-referral is, however false power. being ego based power, it lasts only as long as the object of reference is there. If you have a certain title — if you’re the president of a country or the chairman of a corporation — or if you have a lot of money, the power you enjoy goes with the title, with the job, with the money. Ego-based power will only last as long as those things last. As soon as the title, the job and the money go away, so does the power.
Self-power on the other hand, is permanent, because it is based on the knowledge of the self. And there are certain characteristics of self-power. It draws people to you, and it also draws things that you want to you. It magnetizes people, situations and circumstances to support your desires. This is also called support from the laws of nature. It is the support of divinity; it is the support that comes from being in the state of grace. Your power is such that you enjoy a bond with people, and people enjoy a bond with you. Your power is that of bonding — a bonding that comes from true love.” *****DEEPAK CHOPRA*****
That is so freakin awesome…Think about it for a while.
Until next week I Bid you Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless
