This week has been very sad as our family has lost a friend that I have known since I was young. It is a reminder that we only share in people’s lives for a limited time and that we need to cherish every day and take nothing for granted. Using the Master Key reading for this week, I am trying to remember all the “good” time shared with our friend and her children so that only positive thoughts enter the mysterious mind. My writing will be short, as I am still trying to process this loss, but wanted to at least acknowedge that we are in Wook 3 and moving forward. Pleae rmember to hug your spouse, significant other, children, parents and family today. Sending positive thoughts to everyone.
Reading the Master Key Experience Chapter 2, what Haanel was saying has really sunk in for the first time. I am trying to only put positive, clear thoughts into my “stubby” though my conscious mind. It really helped me to dissect my DMP as to what I really wanted but more so how I felt. I dwelt more this second time with my feelings and did not focus entirely on “what” I wanted” but how I felt about it ( in my heart of hearts).
The reading of the blueprint builder is even stronger and more in my heart than just repeating the words. I am understanding the on a more in-depth level.
This second time around I am learning so much because I think the first time was a strong foundation that I am now able to build upon. It is so exciting. I can’t thank Mark & Davene for providing this amazing journey and leading us to our true selves.
Well, I begin this course for the 2nd time. I found that reading the Master Key System and the Greatest Salesman had a different meaning to me this time around. It really made more sense. I have started changing my outlook towards my “bad” habits. I am concentrating on keeping a more ‘giving” attitude towards people that are around me; I am trying very hard to quit smoking (for the 2nd time) and I paying attention to “how” I respond when asked a question about work or by someone in my family. Previously I would answer without thinking, but now I am conscience of how I respond and how the person hearing the response may interpret it. I think before I speak. Going through this course again is bringing about even more awareness of myself than it did the first time. All I can say is thank you to Mark & Davene for continuing this journey.
After the webinar on Sunday for Week 24, I completed an extended “sit” in which I believe that my “truth” came to the surface. I began this course with the idea of retiring in a year and one half, continuing with my Vasayo business (MLM) again and enjoying the remainder of my life. WOW, was I off base. During this course I have experienced so many emotional changes, especially trying to complete the 14 day Mental Diet. I have found myself to be very opinionated which I am now laser focus on changing, more patient, more loving and also enjoying life a little fuller.
The Truth that I have discovered is how really deep into my core is the love for my family especially my parents who are in their mid 80’s. My desire is to be available to care for them when it is needed, enjoy both of them to the fullest and build those memories too last until I go home.
Just this week (it is only Thursday), I have lost two close friends of our family, one older and the other a man who just married his bride 2 months ago as well as learning that someone who is near and dear to my heart, just had a stroke at a very young age and their future is still unknown. Family and friends are the embodiment of love. It is so vitally important that we express, believe and demonstrate it with our entire heart. It is times like these and past experiences of loss, that have made me believe in my values or TRUTH.
I have rewritten my DMP so it is stronger, punched with emotions about love, happiness, energy, but most of all enthusiasm, because when we get older we must really focus on all of the right things so that we can live our TRUTH. We need to keep moving, learning and loving life. I know that I have set myself on the right path of Desire, Faith, Belief and Truth.
My daily morning mantra is, and will be, “I can be what I will to be, I can be what I will to be – Do It Now – I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, healthy and happy” which I repeat for at least 15 times, then I verbalize my DMP. This is my morning routine. It makes me feel strong, focused and ready to take on the day.
I have decided to embark once again into the realm of network marketing. In the past my focus has always been recognition (pin levels) and the money earned as a result. Truly an act of selfishness. I now believe very strongly that I am developing a much needed mind shift in the thoughts I am putting forth towards the building of such a business based on Chapter 23.
My core belief has always been that money is a tool. One that we need to live (shelter, food, clothing, etc) but should never be the “main thing” in our life. I have in the past moved away from this core belief. I know it was lost.
This week, Chapter 23 has solidified this thought for me, once again, and has provided a more enlightened focus and path for the future. I now understand that the true meaning of network marketing is to be of service to our team members by helping them pay attention to their DMP, by helping them feed their “burning desire” and concentrating on it’s achievement. The power of thought is the way to help ourselves and those who choose to follow. If we maintain a strong PMA through creative thoughts by paying close attention to our DMP, then we will develop the concentration to use the Spiritual Power given to us.
This chapter provided the strength and sense of purpose that I have been searching for during my quest into the Master Key Systems. I know fully understand that “we get what we give” in a more profound way and we must share this gift with everyone that we are associated with. I intend to build a stronger world within so that I might become an example of every idea, emotion and power that we have received during this course.
I thank Mark, all the guides and the Fab Davene for sharing their vast knowledge with me and assure them that I intend to always use it, in all ways possible.
In sitting I realized that anger is my most vulnerable trait. I have always told others that anger is just a waste of energy lost on nothing of importance. Now, I believe, based on facts presented in this week’s webinar, that this is not wasted energy but energy that needs to be redirected for a more advantageous purpose. I am now a more astute observer of this emotion and will redirect the energy when it appears. There are very few things that really should make us angry so a deeper evaluation seems to be in order.
Guilt is probably the 2nd trait that I encounter. I find that when I don’t met all of the assignments, although thinking that I am giving it my undivided attention, I am just following my old comfort zone of making unnecessary excuses. Because of the webinar, I now understand that I need to redirect this energy and STOP making excuses. It is just a matter of “doing it now” instead of finding mindless things to replace it.
I am looking forward to the “Silence” time and intend to give it my full attention. I believe that we are too invested in our modern conveniences (cell phones, IPad’s, computers, etc) to really enjoy our lives and our relationships to family and friends. I think this is one of the greatest exercises we have been given and I truly believe it will be life changing. This would be a perfect exercise for anyone over 21 to try and accomplish. Most people I know of that age, could not or would not put down their cell phones for more than 5 minutes, let alone a full day or so. But then, do they really understand how their old subby is programmed. I think not.
This week’s webinar was very thought provoking for me. I believe in miracles, some small and some large because I have experienced them in my lifetime, but thinking that we, ourselves, are miracles was somewhat hard to wrap my mind around.
When I really thought about miracles in general I could come up with examples; birth of a child (large); conception of a child; serious health issues that are cured (large), then children in general, the fact that huge airplanes take off from the ground straight up into the air, to plants growing providing vibrant colors. As to each individual, the fact that we breathe, think independently, walk, talk, age and have a unique personality proves to me that we are a miracle. What other than a miracle could result in a human being?
I think that instead of being grateful for our daily lives, maybe we should be grateful that each and every one of us is a living miracle. I know that these past webinars have made me take a second look at definitions of words such as; habit, love, persistence, uniqueness, power of prayer and now miracles. I believe it would change our world if more people had to “live each day as if it was their last” and understand all of the words that we have now come to live by.
As Haanel says in 21-2, “The real battle of life is one of ideas; it is being fought out by the few against the many; on the one side is the constructive and creative thought; on the other side the destructive and negative thought; the creative thought is dominated by an idea, the passive thought is dominated by appearances. On both sides are men of science, men of letters, and men of affairs”.
Until these past lessons, I have to admit that I had forgotten how fragile and precious life is and how it can disappear so fast before our eyes. These past lessons have reminded me to wake feeling grateful to be alive, to pay attention to people around me and to focus on my intentions towards attaining my authentic self. As Og says ‘ Forgetting yesterday neither will I think of tomorrow. Why should I throw now after maybe?” I believe that the Master Key experience was given to me so that I could re-focus my attention on what was important to me and eliminate all the unnecessary noise that we all seem to be caught up in.
I think that it is very easy today to get caught up in all the noise; cell phones, computers, television, You-Tube, multitasking to accomplish very little. As Diana Ross sings, we need to “STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE” for ourselves because we are nature’s greatest miracle and we need to start acting as such, “because what we do depends upon what we are and what we are depends upon what we think”. Keep the Law of Growth in your mind at all times as it is a powerful weapon again the noise.
We have all come so far in this Master Key Experience and just need to push our authentic self to the finish line. I know that we can all accomplish our tasks because we ARE the Master Key Experience. God speed to all.
I believe that we all deal with fear in some form or another. It may be present today or it may be something in the future that we fear. For me, it is the future to a certain degree. I am set to retire at the end of 2020 and I am a little “fearful” of have enough money and/or resources to meet all of my obligations.. Sometimes this “fear” is larger than normal (very slight) and when it starts to grow, I just deprive it of “food”. In other words I don’t “feed” into it. I battle it by remembering the Law of Growth & Attraction and only think thoughts of success and abundance. I continually “feed” my subby thoughts of me doing all of the things that I want to do when I retire without any worry of financial difficulties (DMP). I eliminate thoughts of incapacity. You know what? It generally always work because I truly do have faith that my retirement will be blissful in all aspects, including financial.
I believe we all have a CHOICE. You can allow fear to conquer or you can simply decide to win the war by using all of the Laws we have been taught in this course, for they are the food we need minute by minute, hour by hour, to conquer any fear that finds us. I choose to eliminate fear in my life and become my authentic self, a very happy and satisfied retiree…..
Chapter 18 reminded me of how important attention is towards attaining our authentic self because although we might have a strong interest in developing the skills necessary to reach it, attention to the details is paramount to achievement.
I temporary lost the attention necessary which in turn impacted my interest in attaining my authentic self. Life does have a way of grabbing the focus away from what is most important. I think another definition of attention might be focus. I believe that my focus needs to be laser sharp if I want to find my authentic self during this course. I have now re-engaged and feel so much happier with my progress once again. Expressing gratitude and kindness have strengthen my interest, which has a direct correlation to my attention to details. As Hannel says, “Begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest. This interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so.”
So it is my desire at this point to cultivate attention through the practice of competing all assigned tasks and being in the moment instead of letting life sweep it aside. I am have committed myself to the task of being my authentic self now.
