Week 21: The Master Key Experience – Do You Have Authority?

 

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. We develop authority to consciously ‘name’ the qualities we desire in our lives, as well as the power to be at cause in their creation and manifestation.

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 12: The Master Key Experience – The Anarchist

 

 

Advent

Advent

All these wonderful seasons of going within and glowing without, and I’m talking Politics?

Well, not really. All of the Primaries for whatever party is vying for dominance really bore me. What I’m talking about is this week’s meditation, where we are directed to ‘realize your unity with omnipotence’.  As the spray of a wave crashing upon the rocks contains within it the entire ocean, so do we, contain within ourselves, the exact nature of God.

“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.’ [Genesis 2:7]

“The Father and I are One.” [John10:30]

Why did God create us in this manner, breathing His Spirit into us to enliven us?  Could it be so that we would be able to act upon creation, to be a steward of it, and to create in the physical realm…to have dominion over our world?

Dominion requires personal responsibility, and consciousness.

It also requires reverence and respect for all that has been and is being created.

AND, probably most important, the prerequisite for Dominion over the world is Dominion over the self…..something you can attain through The Master Keys.

The Winter Solstice

This takes me back to Anarchy.

If I and the Father are one, and if you and the Father are one, it stands to reason that you and I are one.  Could this be the reason for the universality of The Golden Rule?

If we are one, then anything and everything that I do unto you, I first do unto me.  In pondering these things over the years, I have come to believe that when the hearts of men are restored to their true nature, they will see that they, themselves, are sacred, and worthy of honor and respect, of kindness, and love.  They will also see that all others are as well, and, dare I say it, that all of creation is Holy.  With this degree of clarity of thought and understanding, is there a need for one man or institution to lord it over another?  I think not.  Thus, I am an Anarchist.

Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me.

Week 11: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Advent Revisited

 
Advent: A Season of Expectant Waiting and Preparation

Advent: A Season of Expectant Waiting and Preparation

Advent is my favorite season in the Liturgical Calendar. It is the Church’s New Year SEASON. It is a celebration of New Beginnings. It is the Commencement of a season of Expectant Waiting and Preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus, the coming into the physical of the Divine, the Breath of God breathed into all creation once again.

Advent. I love it. A season of Joyful Communion with All that Is. Expectant Waiting and Preparation.

Sounds like the instructions of our exercise in Part Eleven of Haanel’s The Master Keys. 11.34: For your exercise this week, concentrate on the quotation taken from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.” Notice that there is no limitation. “Whatsoever things’ is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us is in our ability to think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow but a substance, ‘the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Every day, we read the statement of our Definite Major Purpose [DMP] with ENTHUSIASM! We Bruce Lee DMPlook at shapes posted around our home which represent aspects of our DMP, connect our heart to them, and say out loud with enthusiasm that which it means to us. We read the Law of Giving aloud, with Enthusiasm. We ponder these things in our heart and riotously, joyously, exuberantly prepare our minds….expectant waiting

The DMP is the “Whatsoever”. The Enthusiasm and feelings we imbue into the reading of it combine with our thoughts, causing the growth of new neuro-pathways, creating a new belief within us. The Beliefs generate our actions which assure that our DMP is that which we ‘shall have.’

The OLD BLUE PRINT: Our Self-Imposed & Self-Created Limitations

And what are those self-imposed limitations of which Haanel speaks? Nothing less than that sly dog, the Old Blue Print! Years, perhaps decades of thought patterns which do not serve us do not die quickly or easily. This truly is Spiritual Warfare. The Dragons we face on our Hero’s Journey are the Dragons we create with our thinking. Only when we take ownership as The Watchman at the Gate of our mind do we empower, breathe life, into that which we create. We master the 7 Laws of Mind. We master the mechanism.

Advent! What a wonderful season. Week 11. What a wonderful time to reflect upon how far into our Hero’s Journey we have come, to jubilantly celebrate breakthroughs, the coming into the world of that which we envision, the unexpected surprises that burst into our lives which propel us into our futures. Advent. A time of Expectant Waiting and Preparation.  Aaahhhh.  Advent. I do believe I love it all the more.

Week CW20 – The Great MKMMA Adventure – Whom Do You Serve?

 

Gandalf the WhiteJoshua 24:15 informs us of our ultimate power, the power to choose.        “ …..choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your    fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

Who are the gods my fathers served that were on the other side of the flood? The gods of violence and conquest, of William the Conqueror, King Henry III, and Catherine of Aragon, the gods of men and women who lived by force, and as a result, always lived with fear and suspicion.

Who are the gods of the Amorites, in whose land I dwell? They are Zap Limiting Beliefsthe gods of making excuses, of glass ceilings, of closed mindedness, and lack of planning and purpose; the god of letting someone else determine my life path; the god of settling for a ‘good job’ or an unequal relationship; the god of the illusion of safe and secure; the god of quitting just because someone tells me ‘no’. These gods, and others, were the gods of my Fathers whose catechism was drilled into my head, sealing my heart, and determining my path.

Walk into possiblityAs a result of investing six months of my life in the Master Key Mastermind Experience, I have                 mastered the skill of freedom of choice. I have relinquished my pantheon of little gods, dismantled the temples I built in which I worshiped them, and chipped away the cement and limestone which       encased my mind, my heart, and my soul. I have   toppled the idols of mindlessness, other people’s crises, tasks which, though important, divert me from   pursuing my purpose and passion, and freed myself to create a new life.

As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. God gave me Limiting Beliefsthe desires of my heart before I was knit together in my mother’s womb. Almost from birth, I began to build walls around those    desires which kept them from being realized. Those desires are my Dharma, my reason for being, the reason I was born into this life. To deny them is a special kind of apostasy as it is the ultimate betrayal of the gift of my life. Truly, that is a sacrilege.

Now, I listen to the song of my heart. The song of the heart is eternal if you are in service without expectation, giving to give. I SING IT OUT, and Sing it out LOUD! I live each moment in joyful bliss, continually      surprised and all that comes into me and through me to others simply because I live each day as if it is my last, determined that, if it is my last, it shall be my best.

I am the Universe

I cannot explain to you the freedom I have in knowing that I CHOOSE, everything. I CHOOSE freedom. I CHOOSE laughter. I CHOOSE loving-kindness. I CHOOSE happiness. I CHOOSE Love. And those choices transform.

 

The skills of freedom of choice are yours to master. You can’t buy it. You can only receive the blessing of a Pay-It-Forward Scholarship. Leave your name and email below to be put on the waiting list! We start again in September! See you there!!
