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.

Week Seventeen: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Chickens and Eggs: Man’s Search for Meaning

 

rosie-chicken-and-eggsmallWhich came first? The Chicken or the Egg?

Probably the first existential question asked of us.

Chickens come from eggs, so the egg had to come first. BUT, Eggs come from chickens, so the chicken had to come first.  But………

When I move into my new house, I’ll be happy!

When I get a big raise, I’ll be happy!

When I buy my dream car, I’ll be happy!

Does that mean that the house, the money, and/or the car CAUSE me to be happy? For some, the answer is yes, and for those people, happiness is easily stolen from them.  How do we internalize happiness, peace, and harmony such that they become who we are?

Happiness, peace, and harmony are the fruit of right thinking, for As a Man Thinketh, so he is.

Happiness, peace, and harmony are always options for us to choose, regardless of external Find-Beauty-Card_PinWheelDesigns_Etsycircumstances. Once you own this and make it part and parcel of who you are, you are invincible. Setbacks, obstacles, life’s challenges and hardships, even the loss of someone you love, have no power to harm you, for you possess and use the freedom to choose, everything.

Dr. Viktor Frankl, a Jewish psychiatrist in Hitler’s Germany in the 1930s was imprisoned in Auschwitz. He developed a definite purpose, that he would live through this nightmare of death and destruction, no matter what, so that the story could be told.From early 1942 until late 1944, transport trains delivered Jews to the camp’s gas chambers from all over German-occupied Europe. At least 1.1 million Jews, Poles, Romani an Sinti, Soviet POWs, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and young Germans who disagreed with Hitler died at Auschwitz in the gas chambers. Countless others not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation, forced labor, infectious diseases, individual executions, and medical experiments.

What would be your chosen response in the face of all of that?  This was Dr. Frankl’s”

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Viktor Frankl mastered his thinking, and lived. He understood the power of thought as cause, and of all else as effect. He saw in himself and in the guards the human potential, maintaining the vision of what is possible, and thereby freeing what is best to come forth.

Thought as cause. Authentic Strength. Authentic Power. Authentic Living.

Week Sixteen: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The 10 Habits of Kindness

 

Kindness WaveThis week, we loosed Wave of Kindness upon the world: 300 people committed to committing a minimum of 2 random acts of kindness done with an attitude of love each and every day.

If the wing of a butterfly as it moves across a field in South America affects the air currents on the entire planet, what do you think the      focused attention of 300 people can accomplish in transforming the world into a kinder, gentler place?

The practice of kindness enriches us, enlivens, us, and results in happiness. Each act of kindness has a ripple effect, and we really have no way of knowing how many lives each random act of kindness has in the world.

There is a sweetness in life when lived in the experience and energy of loving-kindness. And who doesn’t like sweet?

So, to sweeten your life, here are your 10 Habits of Kindness:

  1. Kind People Send flowers, chocolates, cookies, cards. In today’s ‘electronic world’, the human touch is looking like a candidate for the Endangered Species List! Touch someone’s heart today.
  2. Kind People Live Scroll Two: Choose to greet the day with love in your heart, and then give that love away in the form of heart-felt appreciation of another. Compliment someone. Offer deserved praise for a job well done, or a kind word spoken.
  3. Kind People Practice Compassion. Practice Rule Number Five. Honey, it’s not about you. When you are dealing with someone who is being the north end of a south bound horse, it’s about them. What can you say to make a difference? Sometimes, the simple act of          acknowledging that another person is having a difficult time frees them to remember who they really are.
  4. Kind People Kick Up An Attitude of Gratitude! Who has made a difference in your life? Find them. Call them. Write them a Thank You Note. Let them know the difference they made in you, and how much you appreciate them for doing so.
  5. Kind People Are Shocking! Walk into the local post office, police station, fire station, or sheriff’s office and thank the men and women there for their service to the community.
    The Kindness Triangle

    Want to really shock them? Bring donuts and coffee.

  6. Kind People Are Engaging. Speak to the folks you encounter during the day. All those clerks, sales people,       service workers, teachers, janitors, garbage collectors, cleaning ladies, gardeners…..they all have names. Stop long enough to find out what their name is, and talk with them. Let them know they are seen, and heard, and worth seeing and being heard.
  7. Kind People Become Fairy God Mothers: Seriously, folks. Consider making a child’s wish come true. The Make-A-Wish Foundation gives you numerous levels and manners of giving a child the desires of their heart. Check it out for the ultimate feel-good experience.
  8. Kind People Become Selfish! Selfish is a good thing. It has nothing to do with being self-centered. It has everything to do with being a centered self, someone who has done the work, knows who they are, what they want, and when and where they are going. They are free to love, to laugh, to rejoice in being alive because they do not need the approval of others. They are Self-Actualized and Self-Directed. The Master Keys will do that for you, if you do the work. It’s the Ultimate Act of Kindness to You, and to everyone you know.
  9. Kind People are Polite: Please and Thank You are ALWAYS fashionable. So strut your ‘Miss Manners’ best and watch what happens! Guarantee you’ll love the results!
  10. Kind People are Generous: Mark J is the epitome of this one. This man gives away more skills than Carter has pills. Authentic kindness kills fear, stinginess, stress, anxiety, and trusts that the Law of Reaping and Sowing is true. They freely give what they have, knowing that the more they give, the more they will receive. It’s a beautiful thing.quipple691

Week Fifteen: The Great MKMMA Adventure: Fall Prey to Cupid’s Arrows

 

maleficent_by_dandelion_s-d7ggt40Week 15 in The Master Keys stuns you. “Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form.”

When I was an angry, obnoxious teenager, I memorized William Blake’s “A Poison Tree”. It epitomized my “Me vs. Them” outlook on life. My general demeanor was spiteful, vengeful, and sullen. Not surprisingly, I was miserably unhappy.

I was also ignorant. I did not know that my thinking increased my suffering. I did not know that

The World seemed a Dangerous Place

The World seemed a Dangerous Place

my anger fed the thoughts and turned them into a belief that the world is hard, cruel, unforgiving, and dangerous. I was a brilliant conversationalist, but the conversations cut to the core, often leaving blood on the floor. It was a strange form of amusement arising out of a false sense of superiority.

When I was in my mid–twenties, pop psychology came up with a cute little saying …… Thoughts are Things. I had to stop and think about that one.

If thoughts are things, then the ‘things’ in my life had to have arisen from my thoughts. I reasoned that if I could change my thoughts, my life would change.

I became kinder. My life evened out. My face relaxed. Life was much easier. I was happier, but I was bored out of my gourd. It no longer amused me to leave people lying amidst the wreckage of their own weak thinking. I followed path after path, going nowhere. I could not turn back, but I did not know what to turn to.

3-november-2012-holy-spirit-decending2But God did. Seems He was hanging out in Heaven, patiently waiting for me to discover Love

It was as if He sent Cupid with a quiver full of arrows, piercing my heart with all of them.

God is Love.

The Master Keys 15.11     “It is love which        imparts vitality to thought and thus enables it to germinate.”

Impregnate your thoughts with Love.            Succumb to a rising spiral of the miraculous. The more you love, the more your life transforms. Mine certainly did. My treasures came from within an eternal fountain of love arising deep within my soul. I began seeing beauty everywhere, seeing the miracle that is life.

Love vitalizes my thoughts. I am Happy for No Reason, annoying some folks as a result of chronic bliss.

Now, in my 6th decade, I discovered the Master Keys, and discovered that the power of love within me can be consciously directed to create an even more amazing life. I learned to choose what and how to build my thoughts, impregnate them with love so that they emanate forms hitherto only imagined.

I invite you to fall prey to Cupid’s Arrows, combining that love with the mastery of choosing what you build with your thoughts. The next Master Keys Experience begins in September, 2015. Leaving your name and email puts you in the cue for one of the Endowment Scholarships. It also gives you a powerful tool to start you on your Journey.

Week Fourteen: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Riding the Wrath of the Storm

 
"The Tempest" by Kelly Murphy

“The Tempest” by Kelly Murphy

In The Wizard of Og, there is written an ominous statement: “I persist and develop my skills as the mariner develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.”

I thought back to the Magellan’s Voyage of Discovery, and to the Straits of Magellan, one of the most treacherous of all marine passageways.

Journeys of Discovery – Isn’t that what each of us is doing in the Great MKMMA Adventure?

Magellan was considered a traitor to his native country of Portugal for embarking upon a voyage for the King of Spain. When we fundamentally transform our hearts and minds, some people in our lives do not our ‘future selves’ coming into their ‘present reality’. People don’t like change.

shipwrecked

Shipwrecked by the Old Blue Print

One of Magellan’s ships, the Santiago, was lost in a sudden storm. Fortunately for these mariners, they were close to shore and soon rescued by their comrades.

Perhaps the Santiago was piloted by the likes of Wormtongue (the Old Blue Print), who would rather see us scuttle our ships than continue the journey.

Another ship, the San Antonio, commanded by Esteban Gomez, deserted in the night upon entering the Straits. They chose to turn back rather than face the unknown dangers of their destiny.

I Persist Until I Succeed

I Persist Until I Succeed

I know that I wanted to turn back many times. Unlike Gomez, I persisted until I succeeded in riding out the wrath of the storms raging within my consciousness. I had the knowledge of my power, the courage to dare, and the faith to do. Fidelity to the fundamentals birthed new peptides and built neuro-pathways until the ship of my mind was manned by the love and desire required to guide me to safe waters.

It took 28 days to travel the 600 kilometers of the Straits and emerge to onto the ocean Magellan named Pacific.

We are in the middle of our Great MKMMA Adventure…. These 28 days determine our future. Will we be like many of Magellan’s crew who mutinied or deserted the expedition, or will we be amongst those who persist until we succeed?

And what happens if we quit?

kingofthedead

Those who refuse, or turn back from, the Call to Adventure doom themselves to this.

The mutinous captains were executed…. drawn and quartered, their bones left to the  elements.

Emerson tells us “The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.”

Once we embark upon our Hero’s Journey, even if we quit, we cannot return to the life we once knew. The life of our Divine Self has been birthed and will call to us again and again until we either embark once more upon our Path, or destroy that life within us from which our passion flows.

It’s up to us. We choose, daily.

The short term suffering of being drawn and quartered seems merciful by comparison to a life of quiet desperation.

Persist until you Succeed. Ride out the Wrath of the Storm. Master your Self, your Life. It’s Your Hero’s Journey, the only Journey Worth Taking.
