Master Key Week 20, Pieces Coming Together?

THE TEMPTATION

The last few weeks are so exciting for the Guides and Staff that is painful to write a post, incrediblely painful.

Why?

Simple.

Andrei
Andrei

We’re committed to, as facilitators, to “no influence” with the members.   I’m talking to Andrei J the other day,  a member who obviously is digging deep and the “no influence” thing came up.   He said, “you are influencing us,” to which I agreed … we exert every kind of influence we can to get members to “engage” in the exercises, but stay away from the material.

It’s talking to people, kindred spirits like Andrei, who are paying the price, going the extra mile.  That was evident in the conversation but I already knew that from his Week 17HJ post… The Hero’s Journey.  And that causes the pain for me.

IT’S NOT COMPLICATED

You know how,  sometimes you see the prefect gift for someone, [don’t we all wish that happened more often 🙂 ], and you buy it.   Maybe their birthday is two weeks away or Christmas is 10 days away.   And IT’S KILLING YOU!

We know members like Andrei are breaking through, becoming teachers to the staff and Guides…and you want to share something you’ve discovered as badly as you want to give that perfect gift….early.

So I sitting an thinking, as usual, thinking about that universal feeling … I bust into laugher

All choices are simple once we find our truth
All choices are simple once we find our truth

because I realize what I’m really doing is contriving a way in my mind to violate our primary objective – no influence – and, of course, justify it.   So I laugh harder at myself because, let’s face it …we are funniest when we take ourselves most seriously.

Coming out of this 30-ish minute sit, laughing and being grateful for the temptation and what is teaching me…I wonder to my desk and – BAM!  I get this email from Gerhard, another member stretching himself who recently gifted me in the healing process [bad injury] …and in the email is a video clip…

Of greatness….

Of compassion…

Of understanding….

Of overcoming….

Most people won’t see it, really see the connection to the simple idea that we are all connected, harmony…even with enemies….Gerhard saw it and I know Andrei will too…and it satisfied me,  surrounded me with peace of mind.   The universe, eh?   Coming through big time.   It’s not what I wanted to share with Andrei and so many others…it’s better than anything like that…

A most remarkable kid, understanding point 5 of the bluepring builder [ a 5 point document we write out by hand and read daily] without ever having read it.   This kid gets that we are not only all connected but becomes, intuitively, a channel of service….and …

BAM!!

Emerson’s Law, give more get more….shows right up

Giving without expectation….using the simple idea of the greater good to eliminate a justified prejudice….all on point 5 of the bluepring builder.

Mahalo Gerhard and all the members….fuggetabouwtit!

You’ll see countless examples of the things you’ve worked hard to learn and master….letting us all know, if we just let go and live the principles, without expectation of reciprocity….it will surpass anything we could possibly imagine…

Let me know what you see down below in the comments….and let me know if you know it’s already in you, OK?

Update?  Andrei is now clearly focused, a year later on a career path that is remarkable to say the least….simply astonishing to see this educator brusting into the private sector, doing what he loves and making a difference while maintaining excellence as a professor and excelling as a Certified Guide….while lending his expertise to helping reconstruct the  Certified Guides ciriculumn …  not bad plate…help, help, help others and, golly gee, it’s returning over and over and over.

Master Key Week 17 HJ…Loving and Hating

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 word 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 robs others of their discovery…and, ego again, 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…

Week 16 Master Key System, Kindness and Hugging?

IS KINDNESS THE KEY?

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.

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 300 current members are wondering why I’m not aiming at 1,000,000.

And that’s a good question, after all, you may be thinking….if all 3000 did 350 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.

Be kind to yourself and let go of what you don't need
Be kind to yourself and let go of what you don’t need

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 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….

UPPING THE ANTE, SORT OF

Last year 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…

This 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?

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 3000 to low?  Could we do more without losing the point…we want to be kindness, not counters….

In any case….you’ve got a ways to go as a mastermind so I can do what I love to do for you…go hug a lot of peeps….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 I can do this on a bigger scale….eventually leading to 300,000 hugs in 2018….all of us, taking it to the streets!

I guess I just love doing this so much…..blow 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 last year’s members inspired..from the beginning of the “hug” day.

Master Key Week 15, The Movement Begins

THE WINNERS

Somehow talking about winners instantly makes our minds move to winner and loser and 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…and do them WITH EXCITEMENT vanishes.  The “aha” moments come, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly…but, they come.

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

Members still with us have paid the price and are harvesting now
Members still with us have paid the price and are harvesting now

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.

But, as 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.

Success is service and 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”

See, the sessions did not get any easier….nor the material…..what happens is that the winners, the folks who simply did the work, well, got better.  It was dedication and no one loses here….yes, 280 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?

Welcome to my world, welcom to the movement you will all lead simply by being you and leveraging the resources…..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

Master Key Week 13 – The 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 200 people have already packed it in, a touch over 300 remain standing, scraping, learning and growing.  Pretty normal, because learning how to change is hard work, really hard work.   Most people what the rewards of an education but going back to school, post graduate school, is a shock…bravo to the adjusters.

These magnificent members, 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.

A couple weeks ago one of the members let me know that the 4 tiny habits that develop the larger habit of persistance 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 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 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 that good things are happening for others. How someone can call developing the habits that produce a mindset like this 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.

Our members learned this 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

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 The Final Surrender

FINAL SURRENDER

The word “final” is so…so…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 we

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

are done with something…we are no longer stating a preference, we’ve made a decision.

You know what I mean?   That relationship that we swear is over, one final statement only 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 apply 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.  We 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 we done with the world’s ideas for them…

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 the 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 2014, in an exotic place, Kauai, we are having our first annual retreat …and people will come from all 4 corners of the world…and make connections with others that help them with their lives…

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.

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.

Week 11 – The Payoffs Begin for the Dilligent

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.

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.

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

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.

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…

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.

keep giving to keep growing
