Master Key System Week 18; Breaking or Breaking Point?

LOTS OF CALLS & EMAILS

We were swamped this week.

Gotta love the effects of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance and the internal leadership itdevelops

Calls.

emails.

More calls.

Long discussions.

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.

WHY?

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

AT- ONE-MENT

Pretty cool, eh?

This At-one-ment……..in this context……brings you back to the known as this powerful, inspiring, amazing force…..

HOW?

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.

Master Key Week 17; Loving and Hating? A Hero’s Journey

THE HERO’S JOURNEY

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…

Egocentric.

Theif.

Liar.

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.

Can You Hear The Herald?
Can You Hear The Herald?

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…

keep giviing to keep growng

Master Key System Week 13; Truth is Everywhere

YOU CAN’T MISS IT

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

Succes is service
Succes is service

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

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.

Jerry MaGuire
Jerry MaGuire

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.

Why?

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

Master Key Week 12; A Final Surrender

FINAL SURRENDER

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.

OK, I mean it this time
OK, I mean it this time

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.

TWO SENTENCES

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?

Was surrender the magic lamp?
Was surrender the magic lamp?

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.

And sat.

WHAT IS THIS FEELING?

My eyes welled up again.   I had identified the feeling.

Freedom.

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]

Surrender birthed a rich flow of ideas
Surrender birthed a rich flow of ideas

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.

Master Key Week 11; The Payoffs Begin

THE DEBATE

For years the debate raged…but without rage.   Masterminds are so productive and powerful when there is true harmony.   The debate centered the “pay-off”

The Debate

Share the prize now or later?
Share the prize now or later?

POINT:  Promising a pay-off that would insure success in all ventures and encouraging people to develop 4 tiny habits over a 6 week period…operating as if  the “promise” of a pay-off would be believed and the “insuring” of success would sweeten the pot more than enough to entice members to engage fully, daily, in 4 tiny actions

COUNTER POINT:  Inform the members excactly what the pay-off would be and operate as if their understanding of acquiring the bigger habit of persistence would ignite even deeper engagement in the 4 little habits.

For the diligent, the treasures are just beginning… they will be coming in abundance for the faithful during upcoming progressions, [shhh..and in the 2 we are currently working into the members daily lives]

FAITH

In the end we took turns arguing both points of view.   This is a wonderful exercise with a mastermind group by the way.   The arguing of both sides of a point does lead to wonderful enlightenment while reminding one that it is “purpose over ego” – very effective, try it out sometime.

What none of us could get past was faith.   I’m not talking about the kind of faith most instructors would like…faith in the teacher.   We’re talking about having faith in the members and really understanding what they’d been reading for two months was illustration after illustration of the steps to persistence.

At the core of the decision we made to share only that there would be a pay-off but not define it was both the seed and the battleship exercises.

The Battleship:  The promise of success in all ventures.   To imagine being successful with ideas members are getting a clear mental picture of daily, with effortlessness is the battleship.   The opportunity to “think” is thereby created.   What does that mean?  It means that by focusing on being successful, knowing one would be successful before they even begin is an ideal for most of us…and looking at what we were asking members to do, daily, is, really, a pratical application of that battleship exercise.

The Seed:  The 4 tiny habits, no matter how well one engaged, have been planted.   Something to build on…something to take a hard look at…and ask, “did I do my best?”  If one looks at that without judgement, great discovery abounds.

The bigger discovery we hoped for and the years have proven this to be correct, is that

Are you all in?
Are you all in?

many members have shared they simply did not do their best daily…and while regretting it to some degree, it was correctable regarding persistence with a little back tracking but there were no longer “half-baked” efforts moving forward…no more “doing the exercises as if they were a ‘to do’ list”…they moved all-in, daily.

Was it a trick or a lesson?

Does that really matter?   No, not to us.   The second half of the course has multiple progressions and combinations….all building to extrodinary pay-offs, really extrordinary and the “discovery” of a falsehood sets, we felt, members up for bigger successes by exposing a massive lie.

The Lie?

You can’t be here and not be here.

The truth is you can be here and not be here.   Yeah, here I go again with the “whole is greater than the sum of the parts” speech.   You are in a Mastermind Alliance that has a specific “cause” …no matter how you engaged with the 4 tiny habits that develop the bigger habit of persistence, do better.   You are here, you are in this thing, you are part of something special or very special.  What makes it “very” special is you taking  everything you can by giving more than you ever imagined possible.

Give more…and you’ll get more.

You’ve already begun to develop a “habit” that less than 5% of the people on the planet, according to Hill, ever have….persistence.  Real persistence.  Not that crap the motivational speakers peddle from stage; that “don’t quit” nonsense.  You know better, I know better… hell, anyone with common sense knows better.

Authentic persistence is Aladdin's Lamp
Authentic persistence is Aladdin’s Lamp

PAY THE PRICE.  Practice persistence the rest of the way with each and every progression….we are running multiple progressions and have been for a few weeks….dig in, be persistence…especially that part about continuous action…you don’t have to think about what to do…it’s all spelled out for you each week.   The treausres that await you cannot be found, they must be earned…you’ve got the “map” but as Og points out, the “map” regardless of the detail, will not carry you over one inch of ground nor yield the treasure that is waiting for you to claim in.

We simply cannot urge you more strongly to leverage those 4 tiny habits that make up the bigger habit of persistence with the uncoming and the on going “progressions” we have built into the course.   Day-by-day improve and embrace.   When you discover, via persistence on these tasks any 10 year old can do what you are crafting for yourself you will be, as Og says, “Happier than you ever believed possible.  Matter for fact, I promise, if you’ll fully embrace this current progression as we reveal it, you will state, absolutely, that you are, in fact … happier.    And when you discover the science behind what happens in a happy brain you’ll want everyone you know and care about to have what you have…the compulsion to share this self-crafted gift will stun you and “you’ll really like you” even more.

And one more thing…the “continuous action” in the persistence formula is really driven by that buring desire Hill wrote about…that earnest deisre Haanel wrote about…more gusto with those DMP reads….more often….you’ve got so much more to give….and I promise that the pay-offs will dazzle you…and that’s not the best part.

The best part?

The best part is that the treasures will be yours!   You will have earned them with the “hard mental labor so few are willing to do”  Haanel.   And better yet, the more you give those treasures away that you earn, the more they will return to you…

Master Key Week 10; Inside The Dream

NOW

The time is now.  Now. Now. Now.

As members of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance make the turn to presistence and the second trimester, something interesting happens.   It’s conflict.

In one corner of this battle… Will it work for me?   Where are the results?

In the other corner… I really want this new reality I’ve been affirming for two months.

I know this conflict because while I’m one of the the facilitators I am also a member.   Doing the drill, the daily “homework” and experiencing many of the same things.  Rays of hope rush in like the tides and, just as quickly, doubts try to get equal attention.

To say this was not a struggle in the mid-90s with my first few passes at fidelity to the world within creating the world without would be a lie.   The battle would rage, back and forth in my mind.

I’m going to live in this truth that thought is everything… who am I kidding to think I can conceive a new reality of 3000 members experiencing the Master Key Mastermind Alliance?

I added exerices to reinforce what I was reading.

Same conflict.

I added more exercises.

Same conflict.

I extended the “sitting for ideas” time from 15 minutes to 30.

Same conflict.

To 45 minutes.

Same conflict.

I knew the Master Teacher was right about “A double minded man is unstable in many ways” and it created layers of conflict.

Then in lesson 10 of the Master Key System I saw a sentence that made me so mad.  Oh, not the sentence but that someone must have snuck it into the text while I was sleeping.  You know how that happens?   I sure don’t.

10:9 Thought is the connecting link between the infinite and the finite, between the individual and the universal.

Judgment is a dream killer
Judgment is a dream killer

Why did that smack me upside the head?   In an instant I realized that I was “doing the drill” but no fully in, not really.   I was doing these things to “get” what I wanted instead of “giving” these idea without expectation.  Trust.  It was all about trust and I had the results as a measure of success instead living in the experience.   In essence, I was looking at the results… actually looking for results to form my “conclusive opinion.”

Whoops.

Every master key member knows “opinion” is a judgment and all judgment comes from the old blueprint’s complusion to reaffirm a sense of self.   Holy crap!   How can I become a new person with a new life if I keep reconfirming the very thing I am trying to replace?

Are we funny or what?

I was talking new reality and waiting for it to show up by reconfirming, with each doubt, the current reality… which, ironically, was based on my past reality.  OMGoodness.

I stopped doing the drill, the check list…DMP 3X a day, reading index cards, sitting, reading and all the rest of it.  I stopped, just flat out stopped.   It was like I was leading two lives…this guy who did these things to “influence” my subconscious and this other guy who was waiting for evidence to show up.  All the while there was this third guy, the “jury” waiting to render judgment.   Can you say “unstable in many ways?” 🙂

Everybody who understands anything about the mind knows we can’t just stop something, we’ve got to replace it with something else.  Plus, I had made, as all members to, promises to finish.   And Haanel’s warning, to not start if your not going to finish…that we are always training our brain was a truth I knew I could not abandon … that would be reckless.   Everybody says reckless behavior always leads to a wreck and I can attest to that too.

It was in week 10, in that sentence that the doing the “drill” and “waiting in judgment” ended and the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts took on a completely different meaning.   I became, fully, the observer and that simple act released me from judgment, opinion and negative thought… from doubt.   I moved all in.

How?

I stopped “doing” the drill and embraced this is who I am.  Now.  NOW!   These readings, sittings, thinking periods, recordings, blogging was no longer going to be things I was “doing” but it was who I was.  And, as promised in sentence 9, the line was crossed, the connection between the finite and the infinite began… with a rich flow of ideas.

I realized hope is not a strategy and that if my intention was good for others and did not take anyone else’s good, the way would be shown … the resources, the plan, the ideas would rush in.   And so they did.   What had been a “drill” or “laundry list” became the best part of the day that I could decide to let spill into the rest of the day.

THE KEY TO THE VAULT

It was not longer, the assignments, an “interruption” of my day or chores I needed to complete to keep my promises I had committed to in writing, it was who I was.   Full immersion into the new reality.   Full.

So what happened?   Everything I wanted to create in the new reality either happened or something better happened.   And that is the key to the vault.   One word was the key to the vault.

That word?

Detachment.

I detached from the outcome and lived with focused attention, in the moment.   Perfectly? Instantly?   Of course not… hell, I’m still working on it daily.   But it is a lot easier to get in that spot and stay in that spot for long periods of time when I remain the observer.

EVIDENCE SHOWS UP

So now I’m all in and the idea of carrying this message to the world, to help people help themselves “shed” the cement and become self-directed thinkers comes to me day after day in my daily sitting for ideas.  This Master Key Experience can be huge I start thinking… people will inspire others by example… with hard work, they can help themselves change and their mere presence will motivate others to take charge of their lives.

And Opera interviewing us pops into my mind.   And I begin to weep.   No, not over the idea of size or glory…I weep because instead of “who am I kidding?” being the reaction, it’s “why not see what the infinite has in mind?”

I cut this video back in 2010….living it in the NOW

 

 

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

I start animating the dreamboard, the movie poster if you will.  It turns out, right on that property, we held our first retreat…

We’ve written out over $200,000 in checks since then…only 1.8 million to go and we are growing…

60 People from 60 Countries
60 People from 60 Countries

Now all that is cool, it’s great, it’s… well, a dream coming true.   But that’s not the really big thing.

The really big thing?

Just as Haanel explains, the plan and the people to make this all a reality are showing up.   People like Donald Overlander, Marea, the guides….people smarter than me, people with immense gifts that they want to share, great ideas and reliability that is the stuff legends are made from.   A true mastermind alliance so we can not just expand to well beyond 3000 members but… unlike most expansions, improve the end users experiene rather than compromise it.  WOW.   How cool is that?

I know, with every fiber of my being, that within the membership this year are more pieces of the puzzle, people like Dan & Jenna who have gifts, who want to take on this cause to

Famous Amos showed up and was blown away
Famous Amos showed up and was blown away

alter the consciousness on the planet.    People who have gifts, ideas and skills that can move the Master Key Experience from an idea who’s time has come to a movement that inspires thousands.

And all I have to do?   Well, that’s not really important, that’s just the personality of what I am holding as a reality.   What is important is the principle.

The principle?   Be in as much of your new reality as you can be now, annimate your dreams now, go drive that new car every week, go to Paris in your mind by cooking Parisen food now once a week… what ever.  NOW.  NOW.  NOW.

Have some fun with this…cross the line, be yourself and TRUST…if we get off a very adriot way to “judge” based on measuring our preceived effort against results and simply become that new reality… it happens and usually, really, in a better way then you could possibly imagine.   We never imagined that last year, during the Master Key LIVE Retreat, that people would love so much that they’d complain that it wasn’t longer…that they wanted more than 4 days, that they wanted 6 days…and so it will be.

It’s coming in July, late July and that’s not really important in the context of this blog… what is important is the principle – I began living in this dream, stopped doing the drill back in 2010 and detached from the outcome.   I never imagined we’d be getting emails about the 2016 LIVE RETREAT; that we needed to make it bigger this year, not next year.

Live in your dream now, do it now.   Avoid the mistake I made of measuring my effort against results….that’s old blueprint stuff.

Truth?

If I had 100% of what I hoped for in 2007, we would not have 1/10th of the life and blessings we have today.

How’d it happen?

We gave 100% to the now and detached from the outcome, trusting Universal Law.

Master Key System Week 9… 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
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.

 

keep giving to keep growing

Master Key System Week 5: I Got No Opinion….yeah, right

OPINION

OK, how do I even start this?

As soon as I start to even think about making a point……thoughts instantly form to support it….to support my opinion.

Aren’t I entitled to my opinion?

"Let me tell you what I know..."
“Let me tell you what I know…”

Don’t get me started…..Americans have been conditioned to feel entitled….to opinions…..to resources in other countries ……to….whoops, I guess I got myself started.

Now I’ve got to figure out how to get around this……challenge……

And there it is…..looking at the wrong stuff, again.

It’s stunning how much of my life was spent forming opinions so I could “express” myself.

And, almost always, it was either to get my way or justify my behavior…..oh, yeah, almost forgot…..to “show off” what I think I know.  Good grief…..

I simply cannot imagine working that hard anymore…..to shore up that psuedo self-esteem.

THE HOUSE 

Haanel’s lesson for week 5 really was a turning point for me…..actually, that may not be accurate.  Like so many who begin this exercise in earnest…..especially us mirco-wave, got to have it right now Americans [whoops, did I just express an opinion for no reason? 🙂 ] ……anyway, for most of us….finding the Master Key, claiming it, learning to use it, [after we finally stop looking for the lock], it is a process.   And, most likely it was lesson 5 that helped me embrace that I had already surrendered……I just did not know it till lesson 5.

In passage 9 Haanel writes, “If either of us were building a home for ourselves, how careful we would be in regard to the plans; how we should study every detail; how we should watch the material and select only the best of everything; and yet how careless we are when it comes to building our Mental Home, which is infinitely more important than any physical home, as everything which can possibly enter into our lives depends upon the character of the material which enters into the construction of our Mental Home.”

We really are more attentive to things than thoughts
We really are more attentive to things than thoughts

Opinions, I realized, instantly, were really poor material.

Why?

Most of my opinion was formed by listening to others, conditioning from the “lets-turn-them-into-consumers” educational system and the government…..and others by-products [friends, foes, parents] of the “follow-if-you-want-to-fit-in” drone, “don’t think for yourself” types ……..of subcultures we find ourselves in.

As I began…..to really understand that while most folks were well intetioned…..opinions were out of control and even the ones I was rejecting were influencing me.

What they hell?

The fear I had become so used to…sort of numb to it……had turned me into someone who used opinion constantly to ……constantly reconfirm my identity.   That I was living in my associative memory and these “opinions” were trapping me in the associative memory…..and locking me out of my imagination.

I was living by precedent……and not making progress……simply rearranging the furniture……in a house. a life….that was not interesting……even though those opinions tried to, with a little passion mixed in, make me seem interesting…..anyway…..I realized I could not build a house that I wanted….a life I wanted ….with material from my associative memory…..opinions had to go…

But what would I do?  Where could I find a path to the lumber yards and warehouses of great materials?

THE MAP

Son of a gun….there is was…..as I sat there pondering, way back when……borderline panic…….in passages 20 and 21

20……”It is the benignant force which decrees primal creation. It thrills down from the Divine, direct into every created being. It originates life, which the physical scientist has not done, nor ever can do. It stands out among all forces supreme, unapproachable. No human heredity can approach it. No human heredity measures up to it.

It was the last place I looked....
It was the last place I looked….

21. This Infinite Life flows through you; is you. Its doorways are but the faculties which comprise your consciousness. To keep open these doors is the Secret of Power. Is it not worthwhile to make the effort?”

It was within me!   I had spent my time looking outside….for the right answers…..for the “secrets” [to success, love, realtionships, etc] ……for the meaning of life……

And, son-of-bitch…..there it was in the first chapter of the first book ….Genisis….”and His face moved across the waters”….and ….”heaven and earth”…….oh my goodness…..the realm of divine ideas with the water representing the connection…..between Unversial Mind….and….stunned…..me.

I just had to open the doorways…..and let that “comprise my consciousness” …….

Now I had it.

Or did I?

Knowing and doing are often two different things……

Passionate opinions would flow from my lips later that day.

Felt bad……tried again…..and again….and……started to see some progress.

Need help…..sat…..thought…..John Wooden pops into my head.

Naw, can’t be thinking of basketball…..and I dimiss it……and it pops in again……and again…

I surrender…..did a lot of that in lesson 5……..there is tremendous power in surrender, unconditional surrender.

Funny, we think it’s going to hurt or humilate us…..but it’s freeing…..to surrender the bondage of self.

WOODEN

Start reading some of his 54 things he lives by…..

Ask myself…..why are you reading this?

Oh, yeah….something that will help me let go of opinion and, with practice, I can get better materials to build the house…..in that bewlidering frontal lobe….yeah, now I remember.

BAM!

“Consider the rights of others before your feelings and the feeling of others before your rights.”

Got to read it 4 times.

Sounds tough…….Og pops in my head….Scroll 2.

The tears of gratitude were overwhelming
The tears of gratitude were overwhelming

I decide to stop worring about the problem, me and my opinions….and I focus on Mandino’s ‘when tempted to critisize I will bite on my tongue, when moved to praise I will shout it from the roof tops.”

Wooden’s challenging idea fits perfectly…..and in a few days…..all I am doing is shouting praise of others from the roof tops…….

And, I slip a little…..and a little more…..but they come less and less frequently…..and last for nano-seconds……

The “doors” fly open…..and a rich flow of ideas starts surging through me

…..and I weep…..like a baby

Master Key System Week 4; Naughty Little Peptides?

IT’S REMARKABLE

There is tremendous pain and relief in knowing the choices I am are pretermined, for real, by what we affectionately call ‘the blueprint.’

Peptides: Naughty or Nice?
Peptides: Naughty or Nice?

Coping with the idea that not only are all the choices I make made about 4-6 seconds before my conscious mind knows the decision is made….is, well, bewildering.

No free will……..

Is this good news or is it bad news?

I guess it depends on a few things….

 

  1. Mood
  2. Ego
  3. Responsibility
  4. Forgiving
  5. Forgetting
  6. Fear
  7. Faith…..

Well, the list is endless, isn’t it?

The hard reality the stunning science behind the ‘blueprint’ idea is a thrill of a lifetime if I can lay my ego down and, here’s the biggie, comprehend, on some level, that my initial reaction is also ‘predetermined’ …..YIKES!

There is nothing in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance Experience that has been debated longer and debated with as much spirit…….as to when to introduce this mindbending, liberating, terrifying and exhilirating information.

TIMING

It was never a question of ‘if’ but always when.

Lesson 4 of the Master Key System is, in and of itself, so intense…that the debate was …..too much in this week vs. the conclusion that the creator is within…..hmmmm

Will it blow people away?

Is that a good thing?

Is that a not good thing?

Maybe both?

In a nutshell, our cells……are addicted…to peptides released in massive quatities when we have a feeling…any feeling …the peptides we produce are linked to directly to feelings….a specific peptide for each feeling….and since the cells are addicted, even behaviors we want to modify, and sometimes do modify for a few days really have no chance to stick if the behavoirs interrupt the addiction.

This is why resolutions never work…..sooner or later the cells demand, [think addicition], for a particular peptide sends stronger and stronger messages to the brain….and the subby, that mysterious source that never sleeps…has us unconsciously making decisions that will create scenarios…..that trigger actions…..that will make us act contray to the behavior modification….and bang, they get their “fix.’

Those naughty little peptides…

Here’s the proof….

Change…..go for it ….

 

NAUGHTY OR LIBERATING?

That is the choice, isn’t it?

Master Key Lesson 4.5: The greatest and most marvelous power which this “I” has been given is the power to think, but few people know how to think constructively, or correctly, consequently they achieve only indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind. When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.

And there it is…..for me….the liberty.  The “I” can think.

For me it was understanding that I was just beginning to learn to think….and, if, with effort I could learn to think from the “I” it would be possible to create a new, clear reality ….the trick was ….how do I drive it into the subby?…..and create new peptides?….and get the cells additiced to peptides of my choice instead of defaulting to my addiction

If I wanted peptides for joy, liberty….harmony….peace of mind…..if I identified a vision that would trigger positive peptides and reinforced them, with triggers that keep them, on several levels within my consciousness, change would be not just possible, it would be a done deal.

That ol' blueprint wants it's fix and is cunning, like any addict
That ol’ blueprint wants it’s fix and is cunning, like any addict

But time….and the emotional and business and physical enrironments I live in made this a challenge…..wiat, was that the old blueprint rationalizing……OK, now I can see how complicated this is……or is it?

Is that the old blueprint too?
BAM! Yes….I realized I was addicted to, among other things…using ‘time’ as an excuse to trigger feelings that would produce peptides. A NON-JUDGEMENTAL look at my ‘pattern’ would, if I was honest…and asked the 2 honest-with-me friends I had to verify and or expand on my findings.

Here was my pattern, one of many.

I would get a good idea…from someone, something I read….and use ‘time’ …not having the time to do it….to feel like a victim and that great phrase, which my friend verified…came rolling off my lips….

The phrase? “If only….’

If only I had the time….
If only I had the money
If only I had saved more money…
If only I had the disipline….

I wanted to use MY LIFE as an excuse for my life?
Holy Batman.

Those 2 friends laughed and said, “YES! You are constantly using the phrase ‘if only'”

THE SIT & THE WORK

And, oddly enough, I’m reading the solution every day….

It is in ‘the sit’

The ‘sit’ and quieting the mind, for me, was probably not going to be enough….whoops, old blueprint.

The trail of thought leads me to another truth about me …..to me……not trying and doing because of the fear….”what if I do this and it doesn’t work for me?”

And Haanel shatters that notion…..”it requires work, hard mental labor that so many are unwilling to do.”

The sit, while in a sit one day…..reveals the solution.   It is in the sit, not just sitting to sit, to “do the exercise” but to really concentrate…..and I really sucked at it.

The "Sit"?  WIll it pay off for me?
The “Sit”? WIll it pay off for me?

Those naughty old-blueprint cell addicted peptides kept telling me it wouldn’t work for me….and I did not have the time…..

BAM!  I read and begin affirming…..I can be what I will to be.

Is it possible I am addicted to including myself in the ‘most people’ Throreau identified……”Most people live lives of quiet desperation?”

Then, out of the blue…..divine inspiration…..something fighting to make itself known in the subby…..prayer….luck…..who cares…..I surrender and remember something from my days in college, where I was an English major……..and, the subby never forgets…..funny how it happened.

I keep thinking….too hard….

BABBIT pops into my head…

“Clear the mechanism!” I demand of myself.

Voice says “BABBIT”

Clear the mechanism!” I yell.

Quiet the mind…..like I had been practicing….

“BABBIT”

I’m pissed.

“BABBIT”

So I give up….listen to the voice and the last line of Babbit pops into my head……

 

OMGoodness

All those years if pondering “most people live lives of quiet desperation” …was me, was Babbit.

And the peptides were not ‘naughty’ …..I had created them…..

And since I had created them……I could create new ones!

It only required 2 things……if Haanel was correct.   If I did these 2 things…..the methods, [which some of you now know, Index cards, Og, shapes] would appear…..

The 2 things?

I had to do these 2 things or default to what I had.

I needed something stronger.

Drive that new blueprint with a clear vision and FEELINGS
Drive that new blueprint with a clear vision and FEELINGS

Are some peptides stronger?

No.

My feeling needed to be stronger……deeper, intense….

The 2 things?

1. Decide what I want….not the person who had been conditioned but the “I”….what did my authenic self want?

2. The sit.  I knew genius would reveal itself in the sit.  Not me being the genius…..but the genius of ideas that would provide the methods……the pathyway to bliss…

So……who is your authentic self and what do you want?

Who knew that all those years I was telling my 3 English Setters to ‘sit’ I was repeating the one word I needed to hear.  Go figure……

Master Key System Week 3; Juggling My Way Back to The Future

DO IT WITH THEM

When putting the Master Key Mastermind Alliance together we masterminded often about how to improve the experience.  I knew that the conversation….after platforms, workbooks configurations and looking at previous surverys from former members we examined would eventually come down to first hand experience.

 

Time, Cards, DMP, Dharma....I Felt Like a Juggler
Time, Cards, DMP, Dharma….I Felt Like a Juggler

“You know how you are,” quipped The Fabulous Davene, “you’ll keep adding ideas without having a real measure of what it really will take time-wise.”

I start “but…”  Interruption.   Appropriate interuption.

“You can’t add things in, all those things, that you’ve been doing for a while.”

“But….”

“STOP!” she yells.  “I know, I know.  ‘Yes they can‘ is what you are going to say and we both know you are right but I don’t think you remember what it’s like in the very beginning.”

“The content?” I ask sheepishly.

“Yes my darling.  Some exercises are great.  Tell you what.  You do it with them, everything, then ask them later if they feel they could have handled more right out of the starting gate.”

And, I do remember.  OK, I didn’t remember but a 10 minute sit reminded me, clearly, how I felt.   Like a juggler.

I know that learning new ideas is one thing but learning ideas that turn around, especially with result driven, meassuring people…..everything we’ve been conditioned to believe…..is, well, a juggling act.

What I know is that practice makes perfect habits…..the trick is practicing the correct things.  And we’ve all been conditioned to practice, pretty much, the wrong things when it comes to

thinking.   I thought it was really interesting that on most early calls the members struggle with letting go of both the ideas of results and plans.   The pied-piping architects, govenments,

Thinking for ourselves disrupts things but it sure beats letting others do it
Thinking for ourselves disrupts things but it sure beats letting others do it

schools, etc.,  for decades have told us we must have a plan….not really a good or bad thing……but a plan for our life?  At 18?  And, of course, we’re kids who want to be grown-ups…..so we ‘buy in’……and spend years ‘practicing’ and ‘prefecting’ this habit of not thinking for ourselves…..believing, of course, if we follow this plan….work till 65, buy a house, have kids….we are ‘normal’……we never question is that ‘normal’ is good……or if we even want to be it….and we end up competing is a game that, be what it may be, is, at it’s very core…..encourages and reinforces NOT thinking for ourselves.

THE CARDS, DMPs, WEBCASTS & SOCIAL MEDIA

Then came, for me, as I was juggling the idea of hanging on to ‘some’ stuff my mind was loyal to while learning new stuff…..blessed week 3 and Van Morrison.

Really, why was I hanging on to so hard….what thoughts, [you know, competing, results, action, goals, don’t quit etc.] was defending so much despite knowing my life was no what I wanted…..not what I had hoped for…..and I’m not talking about money or stuff here…..I’m just talking about being happy.   Thoreau’s message that ‘most people live lives of quiet desperation’ was truer by the day.

Where was the adventure?

Where was the optomism?

Where was the swagger?

Where had the willingness to take a risk gone?

So I’m listening to Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me” …..and a line pops out…..’we saw the man from across the road with the sunshine in his eyes

On a cassette tape.

....the sunshine in his eyes
….the sunshine in his eyes

I rewind it.

Again.

Again.

Again.

I start speeding home…..something I never do.  Speed never appealed to me….at least with cars anyway.  Speed of thought?  BIG FAN.   Cars?  Nope.

I crack open the lesson I am on…..3…….BAM!   There it is!

WEEPING

I weep.  I did a lot of weeping …..the discoveries just, well, ‘stoned me.’   OK, I still do a lot of weeping…..feels good to be overwhelmed with awareness….a simple  ‘clue’ could drive me to my knees….anyway…..I crack open lesson 3…..and the Master Teacher’s words are piercing my soul is a glorius way…..”You are the light of the world.’

3:5 The Solar Plexus has been likened to the sun of the body, because it is a central point of distribution for the energy which the body is constantly generating. This energy is very real energy, and this sun is a very real sun, and the energy is being distributed by very real nerves to all parts of the body, and is thrown off in an atmosphere which envelopes the body.

3:13 It is evident, therefore, that all we have to do is let our light shine; the more energy we can radiate, the more rapidly shall we be enabled to transmute undesirable conditions into sources of pleasure and profit. The important question, then, is how to let this light shine; how to generate this energy?

Van Morrison jumps back into brain……’the man with the sunshine in his eyes’

The release from fear is not to be missed emotionally
The release from fear is not to be missed emotionally

BAM!  Weeping.   All the reading of the cards, the shapes…..the masterminding, trying to be sure about my PPNS…..pays off in one glorious mement…of truth.

I know.  I realize, for me, that day…..Van Morrison’s single line I kept listening to over and over was the ‘call to action’ from within.  What if, I think, the sunshine was pouring out if his eyes!

More weeping and it all comes together is the second part of 3:22 –  What, then, is the most natural way of making the desired impression? Mentally concentrate on the object of your desire; when you are concentrating you are impressing the subconscious

And suddenly all the juggling I had created to try an impress my subconscious mind was not only ‘worth it’ ….it was kenetic!

Me?  The light of the world?  That would be the normal response of the guy I had been…..doubt, fear, ego….whatever…..

I know that the Master Teacher spoke of the world often in terms of those around us, the entire planet.

I decide, that day…..I want to be the man with the sunshine in his eyes, that all in my presence feel safe, valued and treasured.

I found my dharma…..it humbles me while simutaneously giving me confidence.

I hunger for the work, the work of learning more about this remarkable mechanism between our ears….and how to use it….for manifest dharma…..and I find my passion in the process….and optomism, willingness to take risks again……

I find my dharma
I find my dharma

I am “back to the furture”…..like a 10 year old….vitalized and unconcerned about 4 years from now or 20 years from now.

Simply put, I am in the now….loving the exercises, disorganization vanishes, chores shift to service and I know, really know that I don’t know what is going to happen but that the purpose is pure and good and good things, better and bigger than I can imagine are there….

…..and suddenly, really, I no longer think about moving into the unknown but wake up, ‘with a vitality I have never known before’ with certainty that in the uncertainty of the day there will be discovery, adventure and if…..if I pay attention, a chance to serve.
