Week Twenty-Three: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Karma-Kazi Success Secret

 
Kamikazes Don't Know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Kamikaze?

Kamikazes Don’t Know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Kamikaze?

Are you a Kamikaze or a Karma-Kazi?

The answer lies in your answer to another question: Whom Shall I Serve?

It’s an eternal question, or a question of eternal proportion. It’s a business question. It’s a friendship question. It’s a family question. It’s a community question. It’s THE question.

Whom Shall I serve?

God? Of course!

Yourself? Definitely!

Your Husband or Wife? Most Assuredly!

Your Clients and Customers? You’d be CRAZY if you didn’t!

Hmmmmmmm…….. It seems that Haanel is correct.  “The Law of Success is Service;

Karma-Kazis know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Karma-Kazi?

Karma-Kazis know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Karma-Kazi?

that we get what we give, and for this reason, we should consider it a great privilege to be able to give.”

It’s THE Success Secret of the Ages.

It’s more than simply PROVIDING a service.  It’s the HEART behind the service that distinguishes you, that determines if you are a Kamikaze or a Karma-Kaze. It’s the difference between playing the game of life according to ‘them’ and playing the game of life after learning the rules…the rules of following the desires of your heart…the rules of discovering your purpose and passion and then doggedly moving closer to it with every breath you take.

It’s the Hero’s Journey, beautifully lived by Og Mandino. It’s in living in heart centered service to others that our purpose is given away, that Success in EVERY area of life is manifested.

It’s in service that success finds you and grows all around you. Karma-Kazi…you give what you love and love returns to you 10,000 fold.

Whom Shall I Serve?

Serve Your Passion and Purpose!  This is the WHY of your presence on the planet, and the means through which you express the gifts and talents that are uniquely yours! It is how YOU show up in life, in work, in community, in the market place. It is the vehicle through which the energy of money flows, blessing all who come in contact with you.  This is HOW you serve God, your family, your community, your clients, your customers…..

Week Twenty-Two: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Sounds of Silence

 

Long ago in a galaxy far away, Simon & Garfunkel released a beautiful ballad, The Sounds of Silence. The lyrics resonated with the generation out to change the world. I am a part of that generation, and was actively working to change the world then, as I am now.

The Sound Of Silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”

© 1964 Words and Music by Paul Simon

As I reflect upon them now, five decades later, I recognize in them the Hero’s Journey. I see the traps, habits, patterns, and distractions that keep us from our life purpose and passion, and the sound of the Herald’s Call, beckoning those with ears to hear of the great adventure of their life. Without a Helper, a Wizard or Witch in the Woods who appears in the life of the Hero while on his journey, quicksand, bandits, and the snake pits of old habits of thinking, being, and doing successfully sidetrack the Hero. I was sidetracked for years, but I continually returned to the Quest.

As a Certified Guide in The Master Keys, I have had the honor of being a helper to 15 brave and courageous men and women. Our tribe started with 25, but the hazards of the journey took some of us. The transformation bursting forth in the lives of these heroes astounds me, and humbles me. One woman called me with ecstatic joy realizing that she finally met her heart, her true self, and because of this work, she is free. Another man has shed all that slowed him down from fulfilling his life dream and is moving, full steam ahead, into his purpose. All of those who stay the course return to their origins with treasures beyond price. Self-Discovery…it’s found in the Sounds of Silence, every day, for 15 minutes, doing the work of the mind, the heart, and the spirit. I bow to all who dare to hope, to dream, that they can change the world through changing themselves and their lives. You can, too, if you choose.

This is sometimes what a Hero’s Journey can look like:

Week Twenty-One: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Power to Name

 

Michaelangelo The Creation of Adam“Let us make man in our Image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foul of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Gen 1:26

“And out of the ground, the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every foul of the air, and brought them unto Adam, to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the foul of the air, and to every beast of the field.” Gen 1:19-20a.

What’s in a name? Biblically, the name represents the nature, the spirit, the character, the Adam-naming-animals-by-Theophanes-at-Meteoracharacteristics, and the essence, in every way, of the thing. In giving man the power and authority to name ‘every beast of the field’, God gave the authority to define the very essence and meaning of that thing. This is one of two specific ways which man is made in the image of God.

Haanel echoes this. “The spirit of the thing is that thing….It becomes active through your recognition of it and its possibilities.”  The Master Keys, 20.1

The other is free will… the freedom to choose a course of action, a thought.

In The Master Keys, we master the Power to Name.

For example, biochemically, fear and excitement generate the same response in the body. We have the opportunity to express our two divine rights: the freedom to choose and the freedom to name. My life experience arises from my living into being made in the Image of God. I choose to name that response excitement, and my life is a grand adventure. I choose to name that response fear, and my life is a reactionary nightmare. That’s the Power to Name.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;’  John 17:22

heart-in-hand-of-godAgain, Haanel follows Biblical truths. “The real secret of power is consciousness of power.” 21.1 “…the more conscious we become of our unity with the sources of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition.” 21.5

We cannot claim our inheritance if we are unconscious of its existence. Even if we are conscious of our oneness with God, we cannot sow the seeds of that life unless we name it and claim it. If we do, we reap a bountiful harvest.

Question: What kinds of things exist in your life that you can transform by exercising your Power to Name? How would your life be different?

Week Twenty: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Grist for the Mill

 
The Grist Mill

The Grist Mill

Gristmills…..  Most incorrectly imagine that wheat is simply poured into the mechanism of the mill and out comes flour! We don’t see the transformation process. We don’t see the reasons why wheat yields flour under the pressure of the millstones.

What is that unseen factor? It is actually the art of the Miller. It is he who has the knowledge, experience, and skill to separate the grains of wheat to yield flour. He knows how to work with grist, the grains of wheat separated from the outer shells and ready to be poured into the next sieve.

Looking at your life, what do you see that is grist for your journey? Is Fear grist? What about

The Tools of a Master Miller

The Tools of a Master Miller

Guilt? Or Unworthiness? Or Hurt Feelings? Or even Anger? How are these beneficial to you in accomplishing your goals and desires?

Each is a highly valued friend and ally, a tool to master in the toolbox of life. I didn’t always think this, but I’ve had the benefit of working with a Master Miller who knows exactly how to turn ‘chaff’ into food for the soul.

One night last March, I rounded a bend on a highway to see a stopped vehicle half-way in my lane and half-way in the lane to the left. There was no time to stop. Slowing down would not have saved me. I was awake, alert, aware, and totally focused. I was also scared. Hitting a stopped object at 65mph would not be pretty. I could die. If there was anyone in that stopped car, they could die. I was hyper-concentrated on my surroundings. I successfully maneuvered my vehicle, avoiding the stopped car without bleeding into the lane to my right, thereby not endangering the cars in that lane that were also traveling at high speeds.

Fear. Food for Life in that circumstance. What did I learn about fear that night? When I am afraid, I am super conscious, focused, aware, alert, and alive. I took appropriate action, and a ‘happy ending’ ensued. Can I take that experience, insight, and understanding to every situation wherein I find myself afraid? Definitely, but only if I am conscious of being fearful. Fear can be subtle, and when it is, it becomes a tool to keep me in patterns and habits that do not serve me, unless I identify it. Once named, I can take fear and put it to work to further my goals and interests.

Question: Can you think of a time when fear actually helped you? Please share those experiences in the comments below. I’ll be answering every comment.

Then please share this on your Facebook, Twitter, and Social Media accounts and let’s see how many ways fear can be Grist for the Mill of Your Success.

Week Eighteen: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Creating Your EPA

 

Church-5If you live in America, you either LOVE or HATE the EPA…the Environmental Protection Agency. If you are a land developer, chances are you are annoyed by them. If you are a contractor doing home improvements, chances are you truly hate them. If you are an organic farmer, you wish they’d be stricter so that your crops are not compromised by toxic pesticides. If you are a bee-keeper, the EPA is just a joke.

The Environment: It’s everyone’s responsibility…unless it is the environment of your mind. Then it’s YOUR responsibility. You see, wherever you have 100% freedom of choice, you have 100% responsibility.

What kind of fruit does your thinking produce?

This week, I embarked upon another 6 month Hero’s Journey: Higher Brain Living. At the end of Stay Hungry Stay Foolish6 months, my brain will have the same brain wave patterns as that of a monk who has meditated 8 hours a day for 30 years….in other words; I’ll be the master of my thinking, focus, and concentration on a whole new level. Higher Brain Living accomplishes much, but misses the piece of how to create the       vision of your future self into which you grow and manifest the life of your dreams. You get that in the Great MKMMA Adventure. Without it, the applied knowledge may somehow disappear into the ethers.

The people I meet at HBL have an edge on most of humanity in that they already THINK. They know they control their environment, and create their realities through their CHOICES. I had a wonderful conversation with one such woman, Margaret Ferguson. She is 70+ years young and vibrantly healthy and alive. Her husband of 50+ years had recently passed away and she and her daughter, my facilitator in Higher Brain Living, Anne Ferguson, laughingly shared about the experience of this man’s death.

Then she said it.

“I live each day as if it is my last. I’ve always done that.”

BAM!! So THAT is what living in the present in love and gratitude produces…this amazing fruit fruits-of-the-spiritof the Spirit expressed as light, love, peace, acceptance, and the gift of being fully present when with another. She’s 100% responsible for her Mental Environment, for her Thinking, for her life. I’m sending her a copy of The Greatest Salesman in the World. I think she’ll laugh out loud when she gets to Scroll V.

I invite you to become a master Environmentalist, MAKING ALL THE RULES of your personal EPA, applying the Seven Laws of Mind whenever a toxic thought pollutes your mind and setting yourself up for a lifetime of riches with the 7-Day Mental Diet. It’s yours as my gift! All you need do is leave your name and email below and I’ll send it right over. AND, you’ll be in the queue for one of the Pay-It-Forward Scholarships for the Great MKMMA Adventure. It starts in September.
