Week 9 Changed Everything….oh, the possibilities

THE MENTAL DIET

It’s not easy promising people a “pay-off” that will insure success in any venture they attempt.   For a lot of reasons.

1] It sounds like magic…which triggers doubt.

2] If it doesn’t work, for everybody, you lose trust and are dead in the water.

3] It is a prediction about the future outcome, always shakey ground

The list could go on and on but there are reasons we decided to do it, to promise everybody that if they would do just 4 simple things, make them habits, they would have something that guarantees success in any and all ventures, business or personal, as long as it was inline with point 5 of the blueprint builder …that it was inline with the Universal and benefitted all the lives it touched.

And, really, of the 4 things we are doing during this “progression” the most challenging is the Mental Diet.   Until Lesson 9.   Once I read, studied and lived Lesson 9, I realized there was no risk at all, not really.

The “pay-off” to the progression is a slam dunk…anybody who has “it” does succeed at the things they undertake, 100% of the time.   The risk part, really, was successfully running together 7 days without a negative thought.

My pal, Charlie

And Charlie, [Charles Haanel], spelled it out for us in sections 27 & 28, BAM!

27. Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can’t keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them — which means, get something for them. This is where the ready-made affirmation comes into play.

28. When a thought of anger, jealousy, fear or worry creeps in, just start your affirmation going. The way to fight darkness is with light — the way to fight cold is with heat — the way to overcome evils is with good. For myself, I never could find any help in denials. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish. – Frederick Elias Andrews

THE POSSIBILITIES?  ENDLESS

The tears streamed from my eyes, good one.   I knew all members could be successful at the mental diet, a pre-requisite for getting the pay-off to the progression…but it was never about me and my belief.   Would they believe it?  27 & 28 were the answer…sort of.

It was the “action” expressed in those two thoughts that let me know they could all believe in naviagting the mental diet…but the tears came from me understanding what I had just read in 25…connecting to my core understanding of Emerson’s Law of Compensation, give more, get more.

25. Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I knew needed it. I want to emphasize this point. Whatever you desire for yourself, affirm it for others, and it will help you both. We reap what we sow. If we send out thoughts of love and health, they return to us like bread cast upon the waters; but if we send out thoughts of fear, worry, jealousy, anger, hate, etc., we will reap the results in our own lives.

And I bawled like a baby, really.  Right there on the kitchen table, sobbing uncontrollabley like a child …and feeling better by the second.   Had it finally happened?  Had all these lofty thoughts come together at once?   Had I discovered the real path to abundance earlier but simply not recognized it?

Yes!

Yes!

Yes!

This is a form of paying-it-forward, blessing others…wanting, really wanting the best for each and every person.   The possibilities are really endless, are they not?

There is no logical end to the ripple effect of giving without expectation of reciprocity, none what-so-ever.

A tiny, tiny gesture, if it comes from the heart has no logical end to the good that it can do.    One of our Certified Guides, John Kennedy, shared this with me a very short time ago…notice the “no logical end” idea….including someone sharing it with John, me sharing it with you and, who knows? We’ve got something special here with the Master Key Experience because while this will “move” you…unlike the majority of the public, it won’t shock or surprise you…you’re already doing it!

With your heart and give, this week off, this affirmation ““I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” from Lesson 9 with your heart as many times as humanly possible….so you can create endless possibilities in the lives of others….and let me know how it feels and, hey, observe how the universe responds…..I’d love to know.

The Mental Diet Would Be So Easy If……

FOX and HAANEL

When I first learned of the mental diet it sounded very cool.   A good friend of mine suggested I consider it…and he was coy about it.   Hit me in my ego 🙂

“I just tried something that was really tough for me but I bet you could do it.”

Doug had taken me under his wing in this spiritual study …he knew I had not come to grips with my “competitiveness” yet.   Competitiveness is great once we learn to compete with ourselves…I wasn’t there yet, back in 1994.

“Yeah, I can do it,” I said brashly without knowing a damn thing about it.   I was reading

I'm Reading Haanel, How Tough Can It Be?
I’m Reading Haanel, How Tough Can It Be?

Haanel, on my own and when Doug mentioned Emmet Fox, my ears perked up.   Another friend of mine had passed on Fox’s “The Sermon on the Mount” and I just loved how their minds worked so differently but the message was identical.

“Fox?” I asked?

“Yeah, he’s got this booklet that explains it, what to do with your mind.”

“Where can I get it?”

I really admired Doug and wanted to been seen as a peer…he’d been in that spiritual group for over 5 years.   Again, misdirected competitiveness.

“I have a copy with me,” he smirked.

I had no idea he was inviting me to grow, no idea how negative I was, no idea how judgmental I was…..no idea what I was walking into.

IF PEOPLE WOULD JUST BEHAVE

So I read the booklet and jump right in.

Doug gave me 2 pieces of advice.

  1. Be honest and restart when you’ve been negative
  2. Find and nuture your sense of humor

“Whatever,” I remember thinking.  I was going to nail this thing.

Read it on a Saturday night.

Had somewhere around 17 restarts by noon on Sunday…and I was in church for 3 hours that day!   OMGoodness.

I’m driving home after church…..guy in front me has his left blinker on, turns right.

“#&&%ing Idiot!!”   Restart 18

I could to this if people would just behave!
I could to this if people would just behave!

Stop for coffee.   “How does this girl keep her job?  Could she be any slower?”  #19

I’m leaving coffee shop and someone is coming in…they refuse to yeild with my hands full of coffee and muffins for the kids.  “Didn’t your mother teach you to you gotta let them out before you go in?”  I blurt out. #20

He gives me dirty look.

I swear at him in my mind, #21.

Jump in the truck…driving on Plum Island to my home and thinking that this diet would be so easy if &%^#%@ing people would just behave!  #22

I surrender…call Doug.

“keep your sense of humor,” he laughs.

“It’s not funny man,” #23 [very angry tone]

“You gotta surrender Mark.”

“Meaning?”

“You’ve got to understand it’s you, not them and ask for help.”

“You mean from God?”

“Sure, whatever that means to you.”

The mental diet remains a pride swallowing siege for the next few days…I can’t seem to stop myself from being judgmental….brutally judgmental.

I ask for help.

BAM! I find something to help me stop negative thoughts and complete the mental diet successfully…..to a little over 3 weeks to get that 7 day run in.

My life has never been the same.

Here’s what I found to easily stop negative thought in their tracks

 

On the mental diet?

  1. Be honest and restart when you’ve been negative
  2. Find and nuture your sense of humor
  3. Stop it

Master Key Week 6, Christmas Came Early

JUST REMARKABLE 

The point of the Master Key Experience?

Well, we don’t decide that for people, for the members…that’s the cool part.   Members figure that out for themselves.

What are we doing?   What’s the real point of what the Certified Guides and the Staff are really doing?   Really hoping for?

Simple.

Thoughts that fire together wire together
Thoughts that fire together wire together

To help people learn to help themselves and think for themselves.   And, candidly, it begins to happen for some around the 4th – 8th weeks…..then it really begins.

For some of us, like me, it didn’t come until later but it really doesn’t matter when people
“get it” and start thinking for themselves.

What do I mean, “then it really begins?”

Self consciousness vanishes and people start expressing themselves, unleashing the creative edge….and, which is GREAT, share it with others.

And….that usually begins timidly around Christmas or the first week of the New Year.   Not this year, this remarkable session o 2014….Christmas is early…..people are “creating” instead of copying….so blown away…..so remarkable.

We’ve already got poet and a singer….

The Singer?  Celeste Johnson

 

The Poet?  Dan Fenton

Twas the day after yesterday

As “Todays” always come

I’ve given my best

Though my best lacks for some.

The tasks that provide

The Income, my due.

Wears my body to exhaustion.

What will I do?

I shall find “Pick-me-ups”

As I go through my day.

My Blueprint Builder, My DMP and Greatest Salesman

Read aloud and affirmations I say.

Do It Now

I can be what I will to be

Brings a smile to my face

A lightness to my heart

I am free!

I’m in a new race

I have a new start.

The world looks and says, “How?”

I respond with a twinkle in my eye.

If I say it with my lips,

I am sure you might cry.

So I say it in my heart and I make it true…..

I quietly say, “I love you.”

So, when you are down….

Whether a clown or had the crown,

Pick yourself up and say,

“I improve my today!”

Perhaps people don’t believe me…maybe they don’t understand…maybe I’m just lucky but none of all that matters.   Seeing people having fun, thinking for themselves and

Is there a greater gift than sharing?
Is there a greater gift than sharing?

finding and sharing their gifts….never gets old..

….in 15+ years of doing the Master Key Experience….it not only never gets old that people allow us into their lives, sharing their dreams, it become more and more appreciated each year.   Such an honor…..and, such a thrill to see people express themselves and share it with other.
