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 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.

Week Twelve: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Anarchist

 

 

Advent

Advent

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

Well, not really. 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.

 

Christmas

Christmas

“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]

 

Hanukkah

Hanukkah

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

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 Nine: The Great MKMMA Adventure – It’s Just My Imagination

 

energy_can_do_thatEnergy can do that…..

Do what?

EVERYTHING!!! In fact, energy is all there is, and the degree to which we master energy is the degree to which we fully express our inherent gifts and genius, or not.

It’s one of the fundamental laws of science: The Law of Conservation of Energy: Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. Einstein discovered that matter is just slow moving energy, and that, therefore, matter and energy are interchangeable. In other words, it’s ALL Energy!

Consider the Energy of Imagination. Today, in my daily meditative ‘sit’, I imagined our

new home. I could see the redesigned entrance, feel walking up the stairs into the house, hear the leaves in the trees rustling from the gentle breeze coming in across the lake. I walked through the house, seeing everything, lighting, furnishings, the smells, the sounds. I see our doggies running and playing in the back yard. I saw the crystal chandelier over my grand piano in my luminous blue music studio which opens onto the veranda overlooking the gardens and the lake. I smiled walking through the bathhouse where there is both a dry and wet sauna for my husband. I could see John and myself creating stained glass side panels for the doors in our art studio, see how the light touched the glass we select for each piece before placing it in the panel. And John’s movie studio, where he can enjoy amazing music and movies with the sound cranked up as loud as he wants while I enjoy peaceful silence and the subtle sounds of nature elsewhere. Simply Splendid.

We have not even put an offer on this house, but it is ours.

Tesla Did the Beta Test in his IMAGINATION before Building the Model.

Just my imagination? YES! It’s a Powerhouse of Cause in my world and in yours, if you master it. My imagination is taking ownership of the land and the landscape, strengthening and clarifying the title to it, clearing away any roadblocks, seen and unseen.

In the Master Keys, we master the energy of Thought as Cause. Some of the most powerful thoughts are powered inextricably by gratitude. One of the 7 Laws of Mind is the Law of Growth. Whatever we think about grows. What we forget, atrophies. I could see this today as the more I reflected upon the people, places, and things for which I am grateful, the more gratitude filled my heart, and the more people, places, and things were brought to mind for which I am grateful. What a wonderful upward spiral of loving appreciation! I do believe it carries me to Heaven itself! I am so grateful for the Master Keys through which my imagination is harnessed and directed to the work of transforming my world, and the worlds of those whose lives I touch. I am grateful for the Power of Imagination, the Creator of Worlds.

Week Eight: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Meet My NBFF!!!

 

Danger-WR-WP2WOW!! Amazing research. The brain registers the image or concept we hold for ourselves in the future with the SAME brainwaves as when meeting a STRANGER! And what did our well-meaning Mommies and Daddies teach us about Strangers? Something along the lines of “DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!!” All those ‘Don’t Messages”

Don’t talk to Strangers
Don’t get in a car with Strangers
Why? Strangers are Dangers!

Now, this is an interesting dilemma, because we are also taught social skills, how to politely you-should-always-be-polite-to-a-dinosaur-you-know-or-elsemeet and greet people, and encouraged to make new friends at school, at church, at symphonies, at social gatherings….boy scouts…girl scouts….. And guess who all the people we see at these places are the first time we walk into the room?
You Got It! STRANGERS!! Talk about a Mixed Message! YIKES!!! It’s a wonderment and miracle that we engage in socialization at all with the programming of the collective consciousness as interpreted by our parents. Love can be messy! Would you agree?

bff-s-best-friends-forever-14109732-260-217Well, guess what! I have broken down these barriers and now have a NBFF!! [I am told by my texting teenaged compatriots that NBFF means New Best Friend FOREVER] The Future Me!! I rather like this gal! She is an Influencer, lives her life by the Compass and not the Clock, Stays focused like a magnifying glass being held over dry leaves to ignite a fire, greets everyone with love and treats them with loving-kindness. She is creative in all she does, teaches Pranic Healing, and is a Witch in the Woods to many who embark upon their Hero’s Journey of Self-Discovery through the Master Keys. She loves life, lives her passions, and laughs at herself and the world…great sense of humor. Her husband and dog children like hanging out with her, and beautiful music is often heard flowing out from a luminous blue music studio which opens onto a veranda overlooking the gardens and the lake. Who wouldn’t love this gal!

Well, the “I” of the present world would not…COULD not…..love her were it not for my decision to cast myself wholeheartedly into my Hero’s Journey, the Great MKMMA Adventure. Mastering thought, mastering the art of thinking, of living from gratitude as cause and thought as cause….. Transformative, enlightening, joyful, and true.
