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.

“Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness” [Genesis 1:26]

“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 7: The Master Key Experience Is for the BIRDS!

 

When we allow externals to influence us, to drive our lives, we crack. Living at effect instead of living at cause equals death. The body might hang around for decades, but the soul will have been buried deeply by The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda, and Captain Hindsight!!!!

A life of quiet despair …..unless……until……a knawing hunger for that something more, that calling long ignored, that desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves…..and lo and behold, we find ourselves embarking upon The Hero’s Journey. The Privilege of a LifetimeFirst Discovery:  Just who the heck are we?  Where am I going?  Where do I want to go?  Who do I want to take with me?  Why do I want to do this?  It’s too late for me….too late….but no.

The Soul fights for life, whispering that YOU are the gift….that your life is the only gift you give, and to live, you must give it.  To give it, you must live it.  But how? If there is enough love left in us to answer that call, we are compelled by an inner pressure that drives us toward life, towards living, and we embark upon the adventure of a lifetime.

If we are blessed and highly favored, we quickly find mentors and guides to assist us in our journey!  Those of us on the Great MKMMA Adventure have such guides in Mark and the Fabulous Davene, not to mention the rest of their team who dedicate themselves to drawing out of us the light we have so carefully hidden under a basket.

Can’t you just hear them talking two months ago?

decorah eagles1Mark J: ” Whaddaya think, Davene?  Will this chick ever fly?  I’d hate to see her become a Condor Cookie, but if we can’t eagles and chickspush her out of the nest, that’s what she’s destined to be!”

Davene:  “She’ll fly!  She’ll Fly!  With support, love, and training, those new peptides and pathways will overcome all that resistance we’re seeing.  Let’s give her the scholarship.  You know, that last itty bitty baby eaglegroup looked a little shaky as well, but they totally astounded us! Maybe this one will as well!”

Mark J:  “Yeah, you’re absolutely right!  That’s why I call you The FABULOUS Davene!  You’ve got enough love in you to hatch 3000 of these eaglets!”

And so I began the hard mental work of learning to THINK: Discipline. Habit. Love. Forgiveness. Concentration. Visualization.   Becoming an architect of words. Emulating Tesla’s great ability to conceive, construct, modify, improve, and perfect in the MIND before bringing it into the physical realm….Defining who I am.  Defining what I want. Giving myself permission to even WANT something!  Defining where I want to go.  The Old Blue Print has been Kicking and Screaming the entire way…….I simply say “Thank you for sharing.” and continue the Journey.

tweet flockFirst, I mistook a flock of blue birds as an invading army, then quickly realized that they were tweeting on over to the Eagle’s Nest to celebrate my arrival and the arrival of this entire cohort of Heroic Adventurers! They wanted to announce us to the world!   Inside, I whined., bitched, moaned, and complained. I had so successfully idealized isolation that the entire concept ofoldcatTWEETING was simply beneath my dignity!  Cats eat birds, after all.  Who wants to actually BE dinner!  What!!! It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK. I’ll do it!

Face Book?  WHAT!!!  The Gateway to All Things EVIL in Cyberspace?  You’ve GOT to be KIDDING!   WHAT!!!  It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK. I’ll do it!!  I am still unsuccessful at uploading contacts…….need a baby bird to come along and give me a hand with that!Big Bird

Then there was BLOG BIRD!  What the heck is a blog, anyway!  Why do I want to even READ one, let alone WRITE one. WHAT!! It’s a REQUIREMENT?  OK.  I’ll do it!!

LORDIE!!!  I thought I was learning to be an EAGLE!!!  THAT Thing looks like it’s mama bird kicked it out of the nest for being just tooo STRANGE!!!

[Oh……that was the OPINIONATOR again……    not much love in HIS World!!!!  YIKES!!!]

No One Succeeds Without a MASTERMIND!!!  MAJOR CONFRONTATION TIME!!!!  In my wonderfully English baby eagle master mindbaby eagle master mind-German-Irish Family, you either figured it out on your own, or your died trying.  Just might have something to do with arriving at this juncture at 61 instead of 21.  ALAS.  ENGAGE THE WORLD???

WHAT!!!! It’s a REQUIREMENT!!  OK!!!  I’ll do it!  And the Mastermind Alliance has been a source of wonderful encouragement, fun, joy, laughter, engagement, interaction, and adventure, and has made the journey lighter.

HMMMMMMMM. There must be a method to their madness!

Then came The Return of the READING BIRD!!! Movie Posters!  Shapes! Functional Book Marks! Recordings! Writing. READReading Cards. Reading The Master Keys. Reading The Greatest Salesman. Reading The Seven Laws of Mind. Reading Emerson. Reading The Law of Giving. Reading The Gal in the Glass.  Good thing I LOVE reading!!! phoenix_lgWHAT!!  I get to DO WHAT I LOVE!!!  Hmmmmmmm. Could part of the method of their madness be connecting actions to passion and purpose….the NEW BLUE PRINT RISES like a Phoenix from the Ashes!  THINKING mixed with FEELING leads to BELIEFS which result in ACTIONS which bring about RESULTS…and DIFFERENT RESULTS than would otherwise have been possible!   OH YEAH!!!!! They TOLD us about that at the very beginning!  I just didn’t have a frame for the reality of it until now.

Wonder what Mark J and The Fabulous Davene are saying now……….

Mark J:  “Well, Davene, look at how these baby birds have grown!  They are AMAZING!!!  Think it’s time to teach them to visualizing eagledomfly?”

Davene: “OH YES!!!  Spreading their wings and taking flight is the first step towards SOARING!!!  They’ve GOT TO FLY!  Let’s give them the Pre-Flight Pep Talk!”

Mark J:  “GREAT!  That’ll be the Week Seven Webinar….of course, if they don’t jump, we’ll have to push them outta the nest.”

life_is_a_promise_-_fulfill_itDavene: “Funny how that seems to work, Mark. The ones we have to push end up being the strongest. They soar the highest, fly the farthest.  Sorta makes me hope we have to push them all!”

Mark J: ” I just love these guys!”

Davene: “Yea.  So do I.  Let’s go see who’s ready to SOAR!”

Week 3: The Master Key Experience – Limbic Yoga

 
Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic

Reading, ‘Riting, ‘Rithmetic

What are the 3 Rs?

If you are of a certain era, the response is “Reading, ‘Riting, & ‘Rithmetic”, which clearly shows the need for more emphasis on Spelling.

In the REAL world, the 3 Rs are the fuel of that part of the brain responsible for decision making. The Limbic System IS that part of the “Inquiring Mind” that wants to know, and what it wants to know is this:

  1. What’s the RISK?
  2. What’s the REWARD potential?
  3. What’s the RATIO of Risk to Reward?

When we ramble through our lives unconsciously realizing that our Limbic risk-reward-ratioSystem is continually asking and answering these three questions, we become rigidly entrenched in the ‘status quo’, the way things ARE, regardless of what we say about wanting things to be different.

‘Conscious awareness of the power of the Limbic System allows us to begin to practice “Limbic Yoga”, a very advanced understanding which brings with it the strength, flexibility, and freedom to choose the direction our lives take.

Limbic Yoga takes daily discipline. Our brains are bio-chemical systems. The bio-chemistry creates a chemical desire for whatever it is fed. Here is the secret of limbering up the Limbic System. Feed your mind what you want it to create. In the Master Key Experience, we are continually linking cause and effect, training our brains to Think, Create, and Change, consciously, consistently, and effortlessly.

Note:  Effortless does not mean without work.  Just like Daniel in the Karate Kid, it is PRACTICE that entrains the subconscious mind. And not just practice, but CORRECT practice of the correct things.

 

You now have the Key to the Vault. It’s yours to use, or to cast aside. Are you in the game, or watching it from the sidelines.  This is YOUR Hero’s Journey. Take it.

Week One: Master Key Experience – The One-Two Power Punch!

 

first_say_to-57090The courageous heroes who embarked upon their Hero’s Journey into their Greatness were given an assignment this week: Write the rough draft of your Definite Major Purpose.  It’s the declaration of your Dharma, your passion and purpose. It’s the answer to the question, “What do I want?”

So what differentiates those who ask this question, and live lives of quiet desperation, and those who ask this question, and live lives joyfully expressing their unique gifts as they powerfully impact their communities and the world?

The One-Two Power Punch!  Thought and Habit.

Before we establish a habit, we must think!  In 1.4, Haanel declares  “…we must ‘be’ 6fqeq9before we can ‘do’, and we can ‘do’ only to the extent which we ‘are’, and what we ‘are’ depends upon what we ‘think’.”

Thought is the beginning point of everything in all of creation. Thought starts a concept down the path to manifestation.

But thought is not enough.  We’ve got to follow that first strike against mediocrity with the second strike which the Wizard of Og defines as the foundation to all success:  Habit.  In Scroll One, he declares “In Truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.”  Therefore, a key to success is to “form good habits and become their slave.”  We strengthen and refine our habit muscle by driving bad habits from our lives and replacing them with habits that bring us closer to success.  Of course, in order to know which habits must go, and which habits are to replace those that go, we must, first, think.

Mastering the One-Two Power Punch builds a solid foundation upon which we build the life that arises from listening to the song of our hearts.

What do I want?

Listen to your heartFor almost everyone in the Master Keys, this is the first time they have dedicated themselves to figuring this out.  Two years ago, I wrote my first DMP.  It is a living document. I worked on it again this week. As a Master Guide, I am privileged to do the sacred work of serving men and women in their journey to their hearts, in their daring act of defining exactly what they want. I am in awe. Each has earned their wings, like eaglets perched on the edge of the nest, high above the canyon, and leaping off the edge, allowing the air to carry them to heights unimaginable to ducks.

“What Do I Want?”

Train for the game. Master the One-Two Power Punch. Skills matter.

So, Hats Off to all the heroes training their dragons and slaying the lies which have kept them small. This is your time! Rejoice that you are moving into your magnificence.  It’s an honor to accompany you.

Week C24: The Master Key Experience – Grab Your Scholarship NOW!

 

Slide02Normally, I don’t use ‘lack’ as a motivating force, and scarcity long ago left my reality, but, in truth, both of these apply today.

Why today?

Because TODAY is when people can place their application and qualify for one of the Pay-It-Forward Scholarships being awarded for the 2015 Master Key Experience.

 

Last year, over 400 people who would have, and should have, qualified were left behind because they did not act quickly enough.

You see, the hands-on dedication of a Guide to support you on your Hero’s Journey to your Magnificence equates to a very real ‘cap’ on the number of scholarships which can be awarded.  When the slots are filled, it’s game over.

We project that applications will be taken until next Monday, September 21, 2015.   That means the course is projected to be open for a week. Last year, it closed early..days early….as the capacity for providing that invaluable hands-on, almost one-on-one support had been reached.

So, DO IT NOW!!!  If you have not already watched the three videos, gain instant access here.

Then click the link at the end of the video and get started on the BEST rest of your life possible!

See you there!
Don't Get Left Behind
