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.
