Just being a worrier, nothing more and nothing less.
Why worry? Why do we worry about groups of people…worry about individuals is very easy to understand. The personal relationship we have with a friend, our kids or spouses make “worrying” easy to understand…but groups?
I spend a lot of time thinking about this. Then I stopped.
People outside the MasterKeyExperience would never understand this…well, a few would I guess. It’s “the force” … we felt “force” in the kindness week and now with the comfort zone tools ending… and the commenting and sharing about it in the Alliance section we have set up for contributions, ideas and encouragement brought it to a deeper level. Instead of just “identifying” we were trying to solve a conceptual puzzle that will benefit each of us. And it ends as we go on break.
So why did I stop thinking about it?
A sit, of course, laid out the bridge to a different thought pattern. I took it.
Keep giving was the new thought….and for goodness sake, make it fun…good grief you’ve been pushing this group so hard for months about purpose … no wonder you worry they’ll just pack it in. In two words? Lighten up.
So first prize in this fun little video goes to the members who get the question right.
It’s right here on the video…relax, have some fun.
YOU KNOW ME
Bigger lesson…you know me, always looking deeper.
While your Definite Major Purpose is the “intention” don’t forget to pay “attention” during the break week… to what?
To the moment. You see “attention” is really what is going to manifest our “intention” so all the work on the DMP, the shapes, movie poster … all if it…is to create a demand in “sub” and “sub” will find the methods to meet the demand and manifest the DMP.
My assertion? The real point of the video?
Not only is everything within you already to have the DMP begin to manifest, “subby” has already drawn to you the resources, people and pathways to manifest…pay attention this break and don’t miss the gorilla.
You see, no matter how much the guides want to help, how much we worry and how hard we try, mind concept is internal. The very best we can do is create a challenging yet encouraging environment. It is why the March to 3000 members to create a massive force of self directed thinkers is really based on attraction, not promotion…
This is true because of qualia.
Ineresting and also the directions to the March for 3000.
It really means, drum roll. Follow your bliss and live the life you love.
And, we’re back to the gorilla … how do any of us follow our bliss and live the life we love?
Be present, every damn moment. Pay attention and know you’re surrounded by miracles, opportunies and wonder…and you are part of it and it is part of you….only….
Only if we are NOT in tomorrow….nor yesterday.
Pay attention, see the miracles, bask in the wonder and I promise, I won’t worry
The last few weeks are so exciting for the Guides and Staff that is painful to write a post, incrediblely painful.
We’re committed to, as facilitators, to “no influence” with the members. I’m talking to Andrei J the other day, a member who obviously is digging deep and the “no influence” thing came up. He said, “you are influencing us,” to which I agreed … we exert every kind of influence we can to get members to “engage” in the exercises, but stay away from the material.
It’s talking to people, kindred spirits like Andrei, who are paying the price, going the extra mile. That was evident in the conversation but I already knew that from his Week 17HJ post… The Hero’s Journey. And that causes the pain for me.
IT’S NOT COMPLICATED
You know how, sometimes you see the prefect gift for someone, [don't we all wish that happened more often ], and you buy it. Maybe their birthday is two weeks away or Christmas is 10 days away. And IT’S KILLING YOU!
We know members like Andrei are breaking through, becoming teachers to the staff and Guides…and you want to share something you’ve discovered as badly as you want to give that perfect gift….early.
So I sitting an thinking, as usual, thinking about that universal feeling … I bust into laugher
because I realize what I’m really doing is contriving a way in my mind to violate our primary objective – no influence – and, of course, justify it. So I laugh harder at myself because, let’s face it …we are funniest when we take ourselves most seriously.
Coming out of this 30-ish minute sit, laughing and being grateful for the temptation and what is teaching me…I wonder to my desk and – BAM! I get this email from Gerhard, another member stretching himself who recently gifted me in the healing process [bad injury] …and in the email is a video clip…
Most people won’t see it, really see the connection to the simple idea that we are all connected, harmony…even with enemies….Gerhard saw it and I know Andrei will too…and it satisfied me, surrounded me with peace of mind. The universe, eh? Coming through big time. It’s not what I wanted to share with Andrei and so many others…it’s better than anything like that…
A most remarkable kid, understanding point 5 of the bluepring builder [ a 5 point document we write out by hand and read daily] without ever having read it. This kid gets that we are not only all connected but becomes, intuitively, a channel of service….and …
Emerson’s Law, give more get more….shows right up
Giving without expectation….using the simple idea of the greater good to eliminate a justified prejudice….all on point 5 of the bluepring builder.
Mahalo Gerhard and all the members….fuggetabouwtit!
You’ll see countless examples of the things you’ve worked hard to learn and master….letting us all know, if we just let go and live the principles, without expectation of reciprocity….it will surpass anything we could possibly imagine…
Let me know what you see down below in the comments….and let me know if you know it’s already in you, OK?
Update? Andrei is now clearly focused, a year later on a career path that is remarkable to say the least….simply astonishing to see this educator brusting into the private sector, doing what he loves and making a difference while maintaining excellence as a professor and excelling as a Certified Guide….while lending his expertise to helping reconstruct the Certified Guides ciriculumn … not bad plate…help, help, help others and, golly gee, it’s returning over and over and over.
We say farewell, with love, to so many during the high-teen weeks. 18, 19…
The choice has become clear, the choice we all must make
The choice has become clear, the choice we all GET to make
And that’s it in a nutshell.
By week 19, reality, no matter how hard we’ve been fighting it, is here. All, as in 100% of the circumstances in our life were created by us… we are all living the life we decided to live. Not one BIG decision…but the day to day, hour to hour, second to second decisions have given us the life that we have.
That’s the bad news… the good news?
We “created” it and that means, absolutely, that we are creative.
The choice is will I do the work to change the world within…will I keep grinding with the drills, the cards, the sit knowing that I can influence “subby” and the decisions, and by extension my world and the world around me will be different.
And… it’s bigger than you can think, this change you can, with hard mental labor, make.
There is more at stake than your DMP…
I WANT YOU
Naw, not little old me…the ideal, the world wants you. It needs you and it needs your unique gifts.
What will you do?
Will you find a sentence the Master Key System that you don’t like?
Will you complain and quit over the length of webcasts?
Will you find a sentence in the Master Key System that “unlocks” the vault?
No matter…for those choices have already been made by those who do not want to answer the call…and already been made by those who have. They are not the real choice.
The real choice?
You can change yourself and that inturn changes your world which changes the world.
Yeah, I get it.
Many are called, few are chosen.
You have been chosen… no, it’s not some elitest thing. You have, somewhere, surrendered to your highest self…hmmmm
See, we are ALL called and the “chosen” are simply the few who, like me, want to deny that people and the planet need us and it scares the crap out of us to the point .. but have the courage to answer our highest self
What would the person you intend to become do next?
How abou this… what would the miracle of a person that you are and were intended to be do next?
Quiet your mind and listen… you’ll hear it.
Do me a favor, do the world a favor, do your future you a favor….
Listen to this again…let it really sink it; it’s THE CHOICE
You are gifted, unique…and you are love.
The world is in need of love today, love is in need of love today.
Happiness comes from within and you know how to help people find the compass and the map and the guidance system.
The Fabulous Davene and I needed a couple days to figure this out, over expresso, of course.
Again, you are not going crazy. It only feels that way.
Our big thing was trying to figure out why it was so intensified this week……the heart to hearts… questioning the material…….feeling great and awful……knowing how powerful we are yet bummed about personal performance.
Why so much this week?
Thank goodness the bride is ‘feelings’ driven . She got me to understand people were ‘feeling’ things, stuff……..big stuff in some cases. Actually, most cases
Most of the time this kind of stuff would come up sometime between weeks 7 to 11……
Why is it so much later?
Cute aside: We thought we were just doing a better job, [ego?]…when these ‘feelings’…rough spots…and questioning of the course and or us began to surface so much later.
Then, bang! Lot’s of folks calling and asking for help, venting, questioning Haanelb, us and the teaching methods.
We’ve figured it out.
Most of the members we’ve had in the past had a some type of relationship with us …….and the trust level coming in was higher……..since they trusted early or right off the bat…….they committed faster……and came face to face with the hero’s journey sooner.
That scary and awesome fork in the road, your road. And, of course, refusal of the call.
GO FOR IT
Go for what?
In week 22 we hope you’ll learn something about miracles that will blow your socks off…….but you can’t get it if you are not moving past the known to the unknown, the self discovery works correctly, not backwards.
What does that mean?
It means that you don’t get the power over self, the gift of mastery over the fact you’re nature’s greatest miracle and ……THEN …….take the hero’s journey……..it means you take the journey, you decide to take the hero’s journey by taking it……and……as you go through these trials and tests……power over self, over your thoughts, courage…….mastery over your old blueprint and the ability to create and KEEP a new one happens. Not before the “stepping into the unknown” but after. Power over your thoughts, learning to harness the power and the courage to dare takes place AFTER, not before. After.
The Fabulous Davene spoke of Atonement …….and you can see it here………but she also changed the word, without changing the letters…….to
Pretty cool, eh?
This At-one-ment……..in this context……brings you back to the known as this powerful, inspiring, amazing force…..
See, realizing we are all connected and all that great stuff is the material and we can get it on an ‘intellectual level’ but ……as Davene like to say [yeah, she's quoting], “Knowledge does not apply itself.”
And that means?
We’ve got to change our minds. We have to acknowledge to ourselves that all resistence, all of it, as in 100% of it for what it really is. Refusal of the call to your greatness. Debating Haanel, looking for exceptions, intellectual gymnastics are all refusal of the call. It’s normal but for each of us we will “act out” in different ways. No matter. Denying our greatness is denying our greatness, denying the field of infinite possibilities, pure potentiality and, really…it is arguing against the truth of being that a carpenter, the Buddha and all the other illuminated ones are arguing for. We’ve got to change our minds and see it for what it really is…these intense feelings, intellecual arguements, sense of being lost or nit-picking over the time it takes to do the work or refusing to do the work…no matter. All the same thing.
What is really interesting about changing your mind, my mind…….is that it takes one-one-billionth of a volt.
That is it!
The ‘stuff’ folks are going through is the breaking point for most people……it’s that point when the choice is clear; there is no longer anyplace to hide……and we either run back to the known and betrate ourselves, the class or the material or we plunge ahead into the true Hero’s Journey. You are great, have unlimited power within yourself when it’s applied for the greater good and service… you really are nature’s greatest miracle. Refusal of the call is denying the truth of being, denying you are unique and denying your purpose and yourself the 13 riches of life.
But as Huxley said, ‘the truth does not cease to be the truth just because I deny it.’
You are nature’s greatest miracle…..and you are a hero……..like it or not
You just have to change your mind……a tiny bit.
I want you to understand the power of this so here is a little clip from the core of week 22
I suggest watching it twice, it’s short.
It is about the pay-off and about hitting a moment of perfection……and unleashing the power……….
Here is a taste of something 95% or more will never ‘get’ and you do…..
Here is what is going to happen……..on the hero’s journey
You are nature’s greatest miracle, powerful beyond measure. That marvelous self will never be found within until we let go of the past and step into the unknown. Go for it.
As soon as I typed Hero’s Journey the love-hate thing started. I love talking and writing and looking deeper in the myths…but this damn princple about “not influencing” people in the Master Key Mastermind Experience stops me.
Maybe this once…maybe just a couple tips to help or encourage people…OK, I work it out in my head…it won’t make that much difference, not really…
These words pop into my head too.
I try to argue with myself…finally, laughter.
It’s only my ego, masquerading as being helpful that is at the core of this complusion…which I defeat, I must defeat.
Am I a theif?
Sharing things [and deluding myself into thinking they are insights], robs others’ of their discovery…and, ego again, disregards the idea their personal insights could be much bigger and more insigthful than mine. I’ve been reading in Og, I am not a theif…
Telling you we, the Certified Guides and the Staff have agreed…the best influence in the field of self discovery is, of course, no influence.
I stop loving-hating…loving the brave souls who have been Heralded to embark on the Hero’s Journey – THEIR JOURNEY – and instead of hating, my higher self let’s me know we made a great decision…execute it. I’m laughing now….for sorrow, challenges, defeats and victories are the experience of a life time and I’m laughing at me…the sheer vanity of thinking I could make the greatest adventure of one’s lifetime better., good grief.
So it’s just love. I love that you are four months into the process and getting ready, like a Monarch, to transform and take flight.
We’ll be sharing a lot of this death-to-life thing from Joseph Campbell over the next two months and if I just keep my hands off it, don’t try to steer anyone’s journey…what will happen is what always happens…the students will become the teachers…and I will learn more, as happens every year…as you transverse your own pathway and share your experience, strength and hope….when you let the “associative memory’s” sense of self die and find your gifts…..only to “return” with your Goodness, Godness….and give it.
It’s really all about freedom…and I’ll let Joe share that with you… I just know “steering” my ideas here prevents it from being yours… welcome to the greatest adventure on the planet…
I’m manifesting, right this second. A vision I have held for years, 300,000 hugs from the heart …all given without a sense of obigation nor agenda…all 300,000 based in kindness.
The 2015 session has altered that vision for me, dramatically. They have moved the idea of the 2104 members vision of moving past the original goal of 3000 members to 30,000 members for a “wouldn’t that be cool and powerful” to a clear mental picture.
OK, that’s not all of the vision. To have 30,000 people all go out into the world on the same day and hug 100 people each may seem impossible to non Master Key members but I’m certain the 400 current members are wondering why I’m not aiming at 3,000,000 as a minimum. Imagine 3,000,000 hugs and loving kindness being the baseline?
And that’s a good question, after all, you may be thinking….if all 3000 did 350+ hugs, my target for today, in a day we’d be at 1,050,000 hugs. Let’s kick that around at the MKMMA LIVE! Retreat - because, really, we need these to be from-the-heart hugs….we need to be aiming at the objective, hugging with the heart, a random and unexpected kindness ….not a race or obligation.
Kindness is the key to the hug…knowing, more today than ever, technology is separating us, not drawing us closer together….and, no matter how cool technology is, how slick, how wonderful some it is ….I can state, unoquivically, it will, no matter how much you love it….it will never love you back nor hug you.
Kindness is the key to creating, without ourselves…the possibility that we can think for ourselves….the fear used to control the masses has done something more harmful than strip the average person from his ability to think….we’ve forgotten how to be kind to ourselves….by giviing that all week, seeing it everywhere and in everyone….it grows within us. And the kindest thing that we can do, ever, becomes possible.
The kindest thing we can do? Be kind to our future self…because once we are, we can hear again. Hear our heart’s desire and act on it….once we do, the gifts we have become both apparent and active….and simply by giving it away, without expectation of reciprocity, we are being kind to all….and, you know the rest…..Emerson’s Law of Compensation does what it does….and it keeps coming back.
Is kindness the Master Key? No….but I gotta tell you that for most members it is the beginning….the pathway, if you will….to “letting go of what we no longer need and claiming what we do require”
So the hug thing….it’s not about the number of hugs, it’s about the kindness of hugging from the heart, pushing out Scroll II, the love, in that split second. Am I wrong? Am I right? Fun to mastermind then find the 3000 and then watch them NOT watch me when I go do my hugs but be out there doing it to….and you’re here at the beginning…
Hugging is a special kindness and the benefits to others as well as the hugger are well documented. To be able to do this for others, friends I haven’t met yet, [the actual definition of a "stranger" BTW] and to do it to honor you, each and every member simply has me bursting with bliss. While I’m out doing this, hugging hundreds of people it will come back to me in “healthy” ways…and since “true health” is one of my primary needs, how cool is that. Facts on hugging are;
In 2103 the 170-ish created and/or identified 3000 random acts of kindess, [RAKs],and shared it in our community….so I went out and did 200 hugs…
Last year, staying with the above reasoning….I decided to give you that same number as last year for RAKs, trying to make certain that we stayed focused on kindness and not numbers. Is it time to up the ante? Do people know it’s not about 3000…that’s just a beginning. Could I have done better?
The 2014 session blew the doors off that number, they really did. How to inspire the principle and creativity, not a competition was something I wrestled with. We did not really want people “doing” kindnesses but rather “being kindness” and feeling connected to a true harmonious masterminding effort than winning. Well, duh, maybe I should have not wasted my thought time on that concern and just trusted the members to understand, trusted they would not have come this far in the course without understanding their thoughts and actions are based on the greater good. Silly boy! Maybe I should just ask the members! Even sillier boy
You tell me…with your actions and commenting below….did I make a mistake in trying to help others see RAKs and setting the number of 5000 to low? Could we do more without losing the point…we want to be kindness, not counters…
In any case….we’ve got a ways to go as a mastermind so I can do what I love in the vision…go hug a lot of peeps and inspire others to do the same thing….One thing I think we must do in the future so we all “feel” both the mastermind principle and kindess…is the amount of kindness we see and do should increase daily…yes?
Think that over, leave me a your thoughts below…..and know, really, I want you to shattered that previous count and grow kindness from within…..so we can do this on a bigger scale….eventually leading to 3,000,000 hugs in 2019….all of us, “taking it to the streets!” [Yes, I'm a 1960's guy but is there any other way to do this?]
THE MASTER KEY JOURNEY
I guess I just love doing this so much… this 2015 session has blown me away, OK, because it’s your masterminding and piling on the RAKs that provides the love ….in each of these hugs….I get to think of you for hours….honoring you….up the ante baby, up it. While you think that over, this is what the 2013 members inspired..from the beginning of the “hug” day. I think it’s always interesting, fascinating really, to look back at the “seed” of an idea, 2013′s session came up with the idea… and inspired the first 170+ hugs. 2014′s members upped the ante and this years members have taken this early “seed” and jumped it to light-speed.
By the way, pay very close attention to a wonderful, wise woman. In one simple sentence, which I ask her to repeat, she sums up Emerson and how, exactly, what the “future self” in each of us will experience. Stunning.
And…here is what this session triggered. What is very cool is Dayna is hugging with me and BAM the vision of 30,000 people hugging 100 people for 3,000,000 hugs moved a step closer.
Somehow talking about winners instantly makes our minds move to “winner and loser” mode. Aand there it is, that conditioning we all are trying to break away from.
As members and Guides alike hit week 15, everything changes. All the drills, all the hammering away to do the drills by the facilitators…and we do them …but… EXCITEMENT vanishes. The “aha” moments come, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly…but, they come. We “settle in” knowing we will finish what we started. It’s not enough.
The heartfelf emails begin showing up, like they do after “NARC” week…more and more often. The staff is no longer seen as repetitive, long winded and too detailed. The “applications” of the basics we drilled on for months start paying more and more dividends and the simple “tricks” – once the basics are mastered – members are no longer judging the pace, number of tasks or receptions…in a nutshell, it’s now fun. Weekly we
build more and more pratical applications off the basics … that conversion from deep thought to useful, easy applications of the knowledge and results from change begin pouring in as fast as a member wants them to.
The emails of gratitude are great and we take the time to remind those who express thanks or wonder or bliss that we did nothing, you did the work, you’ve earned this. With the comfort of routine and and quiet confidence that you can handle what we dish out can come a slight waning of enthusiasm … Ut-Oh?
Naw, don’t fret. We KNOW we need feeling to charge thoughts so they become beliefs. While we worked hard to push, pull, tug, encourage and drag [whatever it took] you into “charging” what you do with feelings, something wonderful happens about this time. That encouragement begins to swell up from a different source.
More. Infinitely more.
Always the case, there is even more…as we all begin to feel the release from the bondage of our “conditioned self” and begin to think for ourselves, find our authentic self and experience freedom…the idea of service gets louder. Once we touch this magnificent spot, thinking for ourselves and feel the joy that comes with that freedom, we want others to find this bliss…the ability to make change….the honor of keeping promises.
SERVICE SUPPLIES DEEPER FEELING
Success is service. Those who “get it” …get the Master Key…know that the only way to keep it is to keep giving it away. All of a sudden getting this into 3000 people’s hands and minds seems like too small a number….even the 2019 goal of 30,000 doesn’t seem big enough. They are no longer “words” on a “statement of cause” … after all, finding ourselves is the greatest adventure on the planet and giving to those we love, know and care about…suddenly…when members understand, through hard work….this is a movement that can make a difference because it’s making a difference in them….we want everyone to have this “experience”. Once we hit this spot, within, our feelings, the wonder around us, the color of the grass…EVERYTHING … explodes. We’ve tapped the truth of being and the endless resivour of deeply textured feelings, excitement and energy gushes out from within…it’s almost overwhelming. Go to it…and bewildering as it is, GO TO IT.
The “source” is gushing fourth through you as soon we let it, as soon as we fully comprehend that “success is service.”
See, the sessions did not get any easier….nor the material…..what happens is that the winners, the folks like you who simply did the work, well, got better. It was dedication and no one loses here….yes, 300+ are gone but they are all invited back, simply not ready to absorb the truth and responsibility the Law of Growth carries….well, that’s not really true.
The ones who lose are the ones we do not find….the wonderful, kindred spirits mired in lives of quiet desperation…looking for hope. And this is my pain…I know what this has done for us and 1000s of others….so how do we find them? How do we help 30,000 and more rescue their dazzling spirit? Break through the cement? How do we lead others to their own rich experience, to the great adventure?
Welcome to my world, welcome to the movement. Simply by being you and leveraging the resources. Be you, just be you. We’ve always believed this should be an experience of attraction, not promotion.
… oh, yeah, there is a 2 part plan.
1. Dig deeper and get all you can out of your unlimited potential 2. Embrace the movement
Let your light shine a live your truth with gusto.
Just when we don’t feel like we are making progress… members send us emails and start to notice their progress. Whoops. We ask the members to “trust” but as we manifest changes in our own lives we unconsciously expect more speed and faster results.
Ever been in those shoes? Wondering why your 3-minute egg isn’t done already and forgetting that you only dropped it in 30 seconds ago?
Keep your sense of humor folks when it comes to change. Had a couple of moments like that over the past week so I followed my own suggestion and decided to “look back” at something … cut this video and heading in 2011
30 SECOND A SNEAK PREVIEW OF 2012?
Well don’t you know that between that video and April of 2015 there we more twists, turns, wins, losses and restarting than you could imagine. And, in 2015 we had a retreat, our first one, right on that property. And we took members to a luau [the winning team] right on that lawn, right on that spot, matter of fact.
And it, that retreat looked nothing like I thought it would… it was far better. The members who joined our staff, the members themselves via emails and surveys…the Mastermind Alliance made it better … just as Haanel points out in so many ways and so many times. The perfect plan I held in my head just keep getting better and better. But…
But… it sure did not feel that way from the time I shot that video until April of 2015. We did not do a session the following year.
I held the vision and went to the Sheraton often. That, “where is the progress” feeling tried to keep getting in… that “who are you kidding” idea kept trying to root in my mind.
2011 … 2012… no online MasterKeyExperience. tick-tock, tick-tock.
Kept going to Sheraton.
Doubt…law of substitution…doubt…law of substitution, on and on.
Trust, harmony… doubt, pain, fear.
Decision. Made a decision. That decision is that I was understanding harmony within but letting desire be the measure instead of the act. And there it was, all that time…right in lesson 14 of the Master Key System.
14 and Harmony
We’re really good at organzied planning for the course…..really good at it.
I’d love to tell you we planned this break, Week 14 and New Year’s ~ but it just is one of those things, it just worked out that way.
I love it when that happens, when things fall into place effortlessly, don’t you?
In 14 we read [section 29], If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious mental attitude.
Is there, really, anyone who does not want, at the core of all resolutions people make, harmonious conditions?
I mean, really, isn’t that why people make promises, resolutions if you will, on New Year’s Day?
Think about it.
We all pick things, until know the Master Key & Law of Growth stuff, that we think will make us better, easier to deal with, life better…..so what? Why? Harmony.
In the end, it is at the core, harmony and happiness [which can't come without harmony], every resolution is designed, knowingly or not, to bring harmony.
Ever hear of someone making a resolution so it will make relationships or life worse?
Resolutions to create disharmony, fights, pain and suffering?
My attitude about creating an environment so unique, so powerful that we’d be stating a FACT when we said, #NothingLikeIt…and other’s would say it too and it would be true. An emperical fact, not an opinion.
Let me have made this mistake for you. While having the vision, the intention is imperative we must detach from the result and pay attention to the moment, the tasks of today that will move us to the intention.
What we pay attention to becomes our intention. Detaching from the outcome keeps us open, rich in the flow of ideas…and that, not evaluating, impatiently, results.
And…it happened. Yes, the retreat happened but that is not what I mean by “it happened.” What happened?
And progress began. Measurable progress.
If we are looking at the intention but not paying attention we start measuring results to determine progress. And, if we are not paying attention, in the moment, we miss the ideas, plans and people that will effortless propel us towards the intention.
Intention morning and night… and a few times during the day to refuel our desire and concentration. This, attention to the next right thing with reminders all day long, [shapes, movie trailer, recording], is the only place we need to measure ourselves. Improving our attention to the tasks subby will unconsciously direct us to coupled with a mastermind alliance that keeps one on track with plan and purpose is what manifests intention.
THE INSURMOUTABLE ADVANTAGE
Here is another, short, blast from the past….
So what happened?
We had the retreat and we’ve written over $150,000 in checks to members and partners who contributed to the #MasterKeyExperience movement…but that is not important. What is important is the understanding of an the insurmountable adavantages those paying the price daily have created…that we created for ourselves. They all point to harmony within.
You know, you get it …….95% do not know.
One simply cannot give power to things they do not want to get what they want.
200,000,000 [yup, two hundred MILLION] ….or more….resolutions were made on January 1st that have no chance.
You cannot quit smoking by thinking about…….???…..oh, my…..you know what is coming next! The resolution makers, even if they read it, would never get it. They have not paid the price you have paid ~ real effort to learn how the mechanism works::::> Law of Growth.
Can one quit smoking but thinking about quitting?
Not for long AND, my gosh, the pain while growing the desire.
Do you know this is a foreign language to most people?
This is your insurmountable advantage.
Not over others, of course, over yourself.
We no longer make this mistake ~ we know the Law of Growth and what it needs to be linked to.
Advantage 2? Not only do you know to end your day on a success,, Scroll 3.
Advantage 3? A Master Mind Alliance.
OK, ONE MORE
You started 2015 and a new life on September 27th.
Most people, who had a good idea on how to improve, WAITED till today [January 1st]……not you.
You took action, daily and made a different choice.
You’ve begun a “make-over” that will last 13 weeks and work…
You’ve learned and practiced the Law of Growth
You’ve read, looked for shapes, flashed cards…
You’ve already “got it” and now you’ve got the benefit of my experience…knowing while intention is critical you’ve also trained your brain to pay attention. And the moment of hesitation between an idea that will advance your DMP and taking action has vanished.
Once you know the truth, really, it’s not only everywhere, it becomes impossible to miss and seeing it makes me feel good…about me.
Master Key members are working hard, that’s no joke. Over 300 people have already packed it in, a touch over 400 remain standing, scraping, learning and growing. Pretty normal, because learning how to change is hard work, really hard work. Most people want the rewards of an education, desire the promises of the Master Key System but going back to school, post graduate school, is a shock…bravo to the adjusters. Our hope, of course, is that those who declined to do the work have been touched from within and they decide to re-engage next September.
These magnificent members who keep answering the call, that’s no hyperbole by the way, are challenged daily but they “get it.” Get what? Unlike those who don’t have the time daily to dedicate themselves to
learning the Master Key, this remarkable group has figured out that if they want a different outcome, they’ll need to learn how to create change within…breaking mental habits that are 10, 20….40 or more years old. To do it they must learn and help others.
The “get” that this process, breaking mental habits that made their future predictable…and unsatisfactory, and replacing it with new habit, no matter how difficult, is worth it…because not only will they create a new reality, one of their own choosing, the payoff is even bigger. They’ll have trained their brain to effortlessly create change in the future. It’s a two-for-one hit. As with any skill or habit, the more we do it, the easier it gets. Creating change from within, virtually on demand, is on the horizon and they are picking up speed towards that state of being.
A couple weeks ago one of the members let me know that the 4 tiny habits that develop the larger habit of persistence was “anti-climatic” …persistence, which most people do not know, is not a characteristic or something you have or don’t have. It’s actually a habit comprised of 4 tiny habits the members have developed and re-inforced for weeks.
Anti-climatic? Good grief. The 25 year study of Napoleon Hill was based on this one thing and people that develop this incredible habit can, let me quote Hill here, “write their own ticket.” Hill goes on to point out life will yield whatever we want with this habit, wealth in any one of the 13 riches of life…..or all of them.
Can anyone imagine having the ability to write their own ticket who did not have it before, having the habit that is the single difference between happiness, fulfillment and wealth plus piece of mind…and failure? Well, these members have it and I won’t gush on about how hard they’ve worked…they have all earned it…and, like myself, they can see how everything is not only connected that brings abundance where ever we would like it…they can see the truth and how these things connect in everything that is flourishing…it’s almost surreal once you understand the truth and apply it.
Years back a wonderful movie, Jerry MaGuire was released….and everyone, well most everyone loved the story, loved Jerry and the performance of Cuba Gooding won him an Academy Award….but what’s really interesting is in 45 seconds or so of screen time, everyone really loved Jerry’s mentor, Dickie Fox. How could this be?
From this great movie, once “show me the money” got burned out in our daily laungage the majority of the quotes, 5 tiny cameos by the Dickie Fox character, is what most people remember and still quote today when that flick comes up in conversation.
Well, for people who understand the “truth” of being, of universal law…Dickie Fox is the man, plain and simple. He’s DA MAN!
While the movie overall was about enthics and principles …it was really the Fox character who carried the bigger truth…the key to success in anything…the same thing these surviors of our challenging, once a year scholarship course, carries. Dickie Fox quotes survive because the truth has a “ring” to it that is irresistible.
See how many pure truths you can pick up….how many connections you can link together that spell out authentic success…something that is earned in the mind first. You see, once you “know” the truth, you see it everywhere and understand why good things are happening for others. Jealousy gets replaced with admiration and we go to “school” on others success instead or resenting it. How someone can call “developing the habits that produce a mindset like this” anti-climatic is beyond me but, hey, we keep working and love them all….loving them all is part of the “secret to success” Long time readers of either of our blogs know we don’t believe there are any “secrets” but success sure plays in the minds of the masses as a “secret”…I guess people just think it can’t be this simple…..
CONNECTIONS TO START YOU ROLLING
If you don’t love everybody, you can’t sell anybody.
Members who do the work acquire this pricless habit in both the “blueprint builder” and Scroll II of Mandino’s masterpiece, The Greatest Salesman in the World.
I wake up and say….this is one of the 4 tiny habits, a positive mental attitude from within.
Tomorrow’s another day….roll with it…..winning and losing are both impostors and have nothing to do with character. Scroll III
I love my life, I love my wife and I wish you…..Dickie knows a rising tide raises all ships and the celebrating the success of others builds a success consciousness….Haanel, Law of Growth. Yeah, Dickie “gets it” but what really makes me weak in the knees is that members are not just “getting it” but living it.
Personal relationships….praising others and improving himself to be better at them…Scroll I
If this is empty….Scroll II, the last paragraph, eh?
So….members, for those stopping by….let them know how many nuggets you heard from Dickie that validate the same truth we’ve been working on together for nearly 3 months now…I know you see the truth everywhere….in these simple 48 seconds, BAM!
Share below the truths you see and how they play out for you….I’d love to know what you see that I don’t or see what I see but have found some cool ways to put these truths into your new reality…to forge a completely different outcome
The word “final” is so…so, um…final. I can remember starting so many diets only to go sideways within a couple days and, after shoveling in some sugar, throwing the last few bites away and saying, “that’s the final time I have sugar, starting now.”
And we mean it. Only to restart over and over. So it never really was final and nothing ever is until the deep relief, not anger, swells up in the gut…and we know, we just know weare done with something…we are no longer stating a preference, we’ve made a decision.
You know what I mean? That relationship that we swear is over, one final statement only to find ourselves in a “push-pull-athon” for a couple weeks or months.
All this time, up to week 12, I still has a tiny reservation. I mean the diet thing is a perfect example…I knew focusing on food and weight was only going to draw it back into my life. I knew I needed to replace, as Og talks about in Scroll I, that unhealthy habit with a healthy one and focus on it, the new habit… knowing, if I kept holding that and applying the Law of Dual Thought to it…the Law of Growth would take over and, presto, new habit.
The first sentece of 12 led to complete and unconditional surrender. I mean, really, who likes to admit defeat. And BAM! There it is! Conditioning. Why do we feel surrender is a defeat? No matter, we do…at least most people do.
1. There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought.
2. This power to think is common to all. Man is, because he thinks. Man’s power to think is infinite, consequently his creative power is unlimited.
I put the book down to really let what was going on internally run it’s route…it was more than mental, it was physical…that swelling in the gut where you know, you just know something is over. And it was over. Relief, some fear…but really, mostly, relief.
And that day…the true adventure began…and I knew, really knew, even things that did not work out actaully were good things, even though I might know how they were good…the setbacks and speed bumps and pseudo failures were all moving me to my purpose.
What was over?
I stopped denying that we are creative…that all the conditions in my life I had created by consciously or unconsciously holding those thoughts…that the Law of Growth was not some cute idea…the surrender, from sentence one, came in the phrase, “creative power of thought.” When I coupled that with “Man is because he thinks,” my eyes well-up with tears…I did not know, at first, what I was really feeling.
So I put the book down and let is simmer…not trying to control it…just letting it do it’s thing. A matrix of feelings, mostly old blueprint stuff tried to take over. I gave it no resistance, just let is slosh around.
See, I realized that I was feeling something, maybe for the first time in my life, maybe not but I was feeling something I could not, instantly, define. I was uncertain. It is in uncertainty that we find wisdom…if…if we don’t reach for something comfortable, something familiar. I knew, really knew, that all that fear based suff I was feeling was simply an imposter…trying to impose on my discovery…
So I sat…still
And I sat.
WHAT IS THIS FEELING?
My eyes welled up again. I had identified the feeling.
I was free of the bondage of self…free falling in uncertainty yet, for the first time, knowing it was only going to be OK, it was going to be amazing. I knew, really knew that new vistas would be open.
If we surrender to the idea that we are creative….without judgment of our past..and that we always have been creative….and that we always will be creating our day, our life by the thoughts we hold…all I had to do was one simple thing. Create something I wanted and not give another thought to what I did not want.
Surrender to the “truth of being” is beautiful, not a weakness.
And so amazed as I sat there in the mid 90s that I knew, some how, that sharing the Master Key with others was what I wanted to do. And I let my imagination run…and run it did.
I could see new technologies…somehow…people around the world would be able to mastermind with other kindred spirits who just weren’t buying “average” and were done with the world’s ideas for them… people who truly understood that they had been conditioned to be copies of copies and desired adventure, scary if it had to be, over imitation.
OK…I’ll start one person at a time….[and I did] I’ll go back to school to teach better..[and I did] and then I’ll share it with groups in my home..[and I did]
And I started thinking about getting it world wide….and I looked at my computer and thought, “Someone will invent something…the methods will show up…I’ve just got to hold the intention” And I have held that intention and people have invented stuff.
And I remember thinking once people can attend from all over the world….we could have a retreat to mastermind together…to meet each other ….and it could be in an exotic place.
All that washed over me in a matter of seconds…and now, here in 2015, in an exotic place, Kauai, we are having our our second annual retreat …I remember thinking people will come from all 4 corners of the world…and make connections with others that help them with their lives… and that is exactly what happened in 2015. And it’s taken on a life of it’s own with the priceless guides like Luc Griffet hosting the Master Key Experience LIVE in France in 2017. We’re stoked to be bringing the team there [insider info, taking a 21 day cruise from Houston to get there ]
Yeah, go figure, a guy like me seeing surrender as a victory…week 12…always a soft spot for that one, that wonderful moment in the mid-90s sitting at my kitchen table on Plum Island and letting the feeling…..LETTING….the feeling….just be there until I understood it. Sweet surrender finally meant something to me.
Freedom from the bondage of self…check out the retreat … if you love adventure, you’ll simply love what we have planned to celebrate that great day I surrendered.
