Master Key Week 13 ~ Redecorating & Recommitting

D FURNITURE

Probably the biggest problem people have in making a change is old furniture.  Old furniture of course representing old habits which are the result of old thoughts.

A word about the word ‘old,’ if I may.

I am not talking about ‘tired’ or out of date stuff.  I just mean the time it’s been in there…..some of the best thoughts I have are over 50 years old.  🙂

Say please and thank you.

Don’t chew with your mouth open.

2 ears and 1 mouth is a clue.

That kind of stuff.  Good stuff.  Old in terms of time – yes…..but manners never go out of style, neither does listening.  Good stuff.

Over the years we also acquire thoughts or ideas about ourselves and business and life that create don’t generate the results we want.  We habitually reach, mentally, for a different result but the ‘old’ furniture predetermines our actions – same result.  Bummer.

The Master Key System has taught us that and we’ve realized, as a group, we need to get the ‘old’ furniture out before we can bring in ‘new’ stuff.

I feel kind sorry for all those people making New Years Resolutions, don’t you?   We know better.

HABITS

Our thought habits dictates our action habits and our results.

We’ve learned that only a habit can replace a habit from Og Mandino.

Haneel points out that we can’t focus on the old way of thinking to get rid of it and Emmet Fox drives home this point with the grand-daddy of the 7 Laws of the Mind, the Law of Growth.

On this there is no debate, Fox, Og and Haneel are in 100% agreement.

We’ve done the work and set up PTs, [physcological triggers], to leverage this knowledge.   We all know knowledge won’t apply itself.

Pretty simple.

Develop an authentic DMP, leverage the 7 Laws of the Mind & the 7 Ways People learn then set up combinations to keep that vision in the frontal lobe.

Out with the old and in with the new.

Easy, right?

REAL LIFE TOSSES A CURVE

Every get something new, a new hassock to put your feet up on…..a new sofa that is perfect for that new nap?

We are thrilled when it arrives.

It looks great.

It is functional.

We are ecstatic….

Why did I wait so long to get it?

How could I have lived without this?

Everyday we come home….the ‘hit’ from the new item remains exciting……..and maybe we even thought about it while not at home.

Then, a few weeks or so later, we don’t even think about it or notice it any longer.  It’s glitter is gone.

Anyway, most people experience the same thing with the Master Keys and the clever ways they’ve learned to keep consciounsly and subconsciously pull the PTs…….we’re impressed with the material, we’re learning new stuff, we are overcoming challenges of time and material……and we are excited.

And, like furniture or the ‘new car’ smell……it wanes.

That is what happens in real life……and this is just too important to let it slide because we know what is next…..the old blueprint.

THE BAD NEWS

Most people, when it comes to bad news – good news – want the bad news first.

The bad news is you can’t keep the old blueprint out.

We simply cannot resolve to ‘not do that’ or ‘not do this’ and expect that to work.

MK students know that is only giving power to the old furniture, the old thoughts-action-habit.

THE GOOD NEWS

We get rid of the old furniture NOT by trying to get rid of it but ignoring it.  The Law of Substitution really plays in our favor here.

By keeping the new blueprint, the new vision……the new furniture in our minds constantly, the old thoughts simply die.

Very cool.

BUT…….

But what about the glitter of new things fading?

Simple.

To recommit and keep it fresh and vital, redecorate.

You can do this in one of two ways.

METHOD 1

Simply replace the shapes you have around your home, car & office with ‘different’ ones.  It’s like getting a new sofa, it really is.

Let’s say the one on the fridge is missing the text on the blue rectangle.  Move that one to another spot and put the one on the other spot where the one on the fridge was.

Now you’ve got a yellow box blank on the fridge.

I’ve suggested you ‘touch’ the blank shape and verbally fill it in.  Those who’ve followed this suggestion will feel a rejuvenation around these now ‘old and taken for granted’ tools that work.

METHOD 2

Print out another set and put it next to the existing one.  Fill in both blanks.

This one is sort of an advanced version and really, when combined with the mind-gym adds a vitality that is powerful.

It looks like this:

What I’ve learned, especially in a ‘break week’ is to take my right hand [little mind-gym action here], lift my left foot and touch, in this order, blue-yellow on one sheet then move on to the next sheet.  Then I reverse the process, using my left hand and right foot.

This tiny movement engages both sides of the brain…..and we all know moving furniture around in a living room can revitalize the feel of the room……

And…..your DMP…….hmmmmmm

So recommit now, not January 1st.  Freshening it up and vitalize it.

The negative thinking inside the old blueprint requires constant attention because, as you know, negative thoughts are lifeless to begin with…..by focusing on your ‘new -but-now-used-to-furniture’ and moving it around a little bit, it gets revitalized and we get recommitted.

The really cool thing here is you understand all this…..but…..knowledge does not apply itself.

Re-decorate today.

Master Key Week 12 ~ Out of Kindergarten, On Middle School :::>College Next Month?

CRAYONS AND SCISSORS

OK, I get that you get it…..we started with things that brought us back to when we were really open-minded…..so we’d be, well, more open-minded.

Shapes, cutting things out, coloring…..for those who don’t understand what we are doing…..it can seem kinda childlike.

The point needs to be made, again, that institutions stole from us…..and we’ve all been looking for something, as Billy Joel writes….something taken out of our soul, something we’d never lose…..something somebody stole.

Some meant to steal from us…..most did not.

The amazing fear-based thinking of people with decision-making power or responsibility led to this theft…..and our great gift …..that inspires others…..our ability to ‘be aware of wonder’…..got diluted to the point, for most of us….if not all of us….to the point where we were reacting to life instead of creating it.

GRADUATION

You’ve made it this far because you’ve decided to ‘reclaim’ the spirit of adventure…..of discovery…..of wonder……and are, like the Fabulous Davene, chuckling at the critics who label us a ‘cult’….the same book-burning small minds….who fire barbs at of prejudice, fearing what they do not understand……and you fire back love, Scroll 2 🙂

It is when we get to this point….that we know that we know that we know…that we know….that we have ‘discovered’ a way to reclaim the gifts we were given…..mind, spirit….soul, if you will…..and declare our indviduality….and our ability to think and create instead of conform….that we have graduated.

And, you have.

RESPONSIBILITY

It’s not easy…..knowing Master Key System combined with the exercises and effort will yield a life second to none.

I’ve sat on my couch at 3:00 AM, just like you…..and wondered why I did not do my best with these simple tasks…..wondered why I don’t read my DMP with a BIG, EXCITED VOICE….

We know it works……and in your heart you know it too.

Why do we ‘skip’ things……why do we not ‘throw our heart’ over the bar that has been set by our old blueprint.

Sure, we can say, “I don’t need to do this….I am a self-starter“……but at 3:oo AM….or whatever time you have that little twinge about not being faithful to ‘a few minutes is a small price to pay’…..our responsibility kicks us in the butt…..and we know we are just kidding ourselves….and we question ourselves.

Conscience?

Yup.

But a different kind…..the kind that comes when we pay the price to acquire knowledge, which you have.

It may be painful…when we get off track for a day …..but it’s really a beautiful thing.

Why?

A BEAUTIFUL THING?  FEELING BAD?

Once a mind is stretched by a new idea…..it can never regain its orginal shape.

So, celebrate…..those moments when we rationalize not doing the simple things that ‘are but a small price to pay’ [Scroll 1]…..because it means you have done the work and stretched your mind.

Ah…the field of infinite possibilities and pure potentialities….

We don’t know what we don’t know until we know it…..and, now, you know it….this amazing power within you is available 24-7…..and……there is no getting away from it.

Kindergarten is over….middle school……and Janury 2, for those who follow the suggestions….right into college.

HUH?  STRAIGHT TO COLLEGE?

If you look at the rate of speed we are now covering material and the intricate crisscrossing of exercises and concepts……and that you understand them, which you do…..you should notice something very interesting….compared to the “Sunday Sessions” of October…..the speed is 4x faster AND you get it……

For those who have recommitted to the exercises or never lost focus…..January will produce, effortlessly and instantly, the changes you would like to see in your personality and character.

Resolutions, for reasons most people do not understand, do not work.  You know why they don’t…peptides, blueprints, neuro-nets, associative memory…..and these 3 weeks in Middle School with the ‘flash cards’ will set you up to leverage The Law of Growth……and make any changes you want.

This type of advanced stuff…..is the payoff, [like the 4 little habits whose fruit was authentic persistence], and having the ability to leverage these things to instantly eliminate short-comings so our faith, family and financial journeys go how we want them to….is mind-blowing to those who do not understand….

Imagine being able to identify an area you want to improve in and modify your behavior so dramatically and rapidly that….people who have known you for decades don’t recognize this new, powerful, dynamic spirit…..or as Og says in Scroll 1…..they don’t know you for you are a new person with a new life.

Quite a jump from kindergarten to Post Graduate in 3 weeks.

They’ll think you’re a genius…..and you’ll know that is not the case at all.

They’ll be stunned and look on you with admiration…..but you’ll know the truth…

The truth you’ve heard…..John Wooden quoting Grantland Rice

From an interview with Wooden….”………..but let me summarize it by quoting the last two lines of “How to Be a Champion” by Grantland Rice: “Most of it is practice / The rest of it is work.” I was a good practice coach, perhaps among the best. Championships are won in practice. Success starts with work.”

We know you’re doing the work…..the middle school flash card exercise?

You’re gonna love the payoff.

Master Key ~ Week 11 ~ Persistence = Manifestation

BIGGER THAN WE CAN THINK

The effect of setting up authentic DMPs based on our PPNs is obvious at this point to the members.

People simply are noticing change in us, everywhere….mostly before we even notice it ourselves.

Very Cool 🙂

So we could say that your DMP is the battleship ….or the plant…..no matter…..and members of this Master Mind know I am referring to 2 specific chapters.

Whether we are growing it…..to see it…..or we see is and are breaking it down to what we need to do daily is critical and really just a difference in thinking style.

Does it matter?

No, not really.  All that matters, whether we ‘battleship’ it and reduce it…..or we start with an acorn and end with a forrest……doesn’t matter as long as we do 2 simple things.

1. How we see it does not matter…..that we see it does.

2. Action

KNOWLEDGE WILL NOT APPLY ITSELF

While a held vision will create the methods…….we can’t be like the guy in a cold room with a wood stove who says to the stove…..”give me some heat and I’ll toss in some wood.”

We unconsciously create the methods…..the ‘wood’ if you will….and, after Week 11’s Class …..we know we’ve got to take action……think of the methods as the ‘wood’….we’ve got to keep tossing ‘wood’ into the stove to continue to have heat.

We’ve got to keep taking ‘persistent’ action to manifest our DMP.

How do we do that on a daily basis?

Easy…..more on this during class 12…..but here’s a video to explain exactly what I do, to this day.

This method has made our dreams come true…..and the cool thing, it works for everybody.

Why?

It is a specific method to gain the ‘insurmountable’ advantage Og talks about in Scroll 3.

Would having an insurmountable advantage over your previous, [and dying blueprint], make a difference?

OBSTACLES & PRIZES

The moment we realize taking care of our own needs ….. as long as they are compliance with the Universal Mind….our life changes so much, it’s almost incomprehensible.

The reality is our just beginning to manifest our objectives creates a ripple effect that is bigger than we can think.

The thrill of getting it done….deciding what we want and taking both consistent and persistent action …is dwarfed by the positive effect it has on others.

The prize of moving to Kauai with the Fabulous Davene…..has been eclipsed by seeing all 4 kids upping their ambition level and seeing them…..effortlessly, overcome obstacles….has virtually eliminated the type of bigger fears all parents share….about their life, safety and….the big one….will life be too harsh on my babies?……we hate seeing obstacles knock them down and hurt them.

These fears around our kids gets replaced by confidence for those lucky who know what you now know about persistence and set the example.

Let’s face it, after the rebellion period to create separation, our kids end up doing what we do, not what we say.

I thought you’d like to meet my 24-year-old to illustrate this point….and being able to witness this journey….her journey to manifesting her DMP….replaced those fears I had for her, like all the kids….with peace of mind.

Why?

She knows the 4 tiny habits …..and she has them
