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 20A: The Master Key Experience – The Scepter of Power

 

one-with-god_one with all smHaanel tells us “The Scepter of Power is Consciousness, and Thought is its messenger” [The Master Keys, Part 20:3] Just what the heck is a Scepter?  By definition, it is an ornamented staff carried by rulers on ceremonial occasions as a symbol of sovereignty.  Is consciousness, therefore, merely a symbol held within the mind-body?

In the next breath, Haanel states “This messenger is constantly molding the realities of the invisible world into the conditions and environments of your objective world.”  It appears that the messenger is the one who sovereignly owns the power symbolized by the scepter.  In other words, out thoughts, our thinking, generate the power expressing in us, as us, and through us. Our consciousness is the symbol of that power, and through our consciousness, our thoughts create either good or evil, for it is in our consciousness that the intention behind our thoughts and our resultant actions is derived.

In practice, I have found that these two, consciousness and thoughts, are equal partners in the creation of my life. My consciousness imbues my thoughts with loving kindness. My thoughts, permeated with this quality, generate actions which spread loving-kindness, compassion, goodness, and mercy into the world in which I abide.  BECAUSE I am One with God, it is His work that is done through my actions on my best days, those days wherein I have successfully aligned my consciousness and thoughts with the heart of God.

One with God. One with All.  A lofty ideal. Thank goodness for the laws of Growth, and of We are OnePractice!!!! The Hero’s Journey to a thorough understanding and application of the fact that I live and breathe and have my being through God, and that we are indivisibly and inexorably united inspires me daily. The Omniscient, Omnipotent Master Designer, Creator, and Sustainer of all that Is, that Was, and that Is to Come is omnipresent in me, as me, and through me.  Pretty cool!

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

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 Master Key Experience – The DOMINO EFFECT

 

cause and effect“It is well, however, to remember that while every effect is the result of a cause, the effect, in turn, becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes, so that when you put the Law of Attraction [The Law of Karma, or the Law of Cause and Effect] into operation, you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities.”  Charles Haanel, The Master Key – Part Eleven

Consciousness is the ultimate Personal Responsibility Paradigm, calling into play every aspect of our being.  We recently had our basement flood.  What caused that? The failure of the builder 45 years ago to seal the foundation combined with ineffective drainage from the gutters.  We got to walk into observing the Law of Attraction/Law of Cause and Effect up front and personal playing out in our new home.  It played beautifully into Scroll III from The Greatest Salesman in the World: “I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.  I will persist until I succeed.”

One raindrop at a time, until the foundation was saturated along with the earth, and the Persistencewater pushed through, covering our floors and then leaching up into the walls, until they, too were saturated.

Nature instructs beautifully.

A cause, 45 years in the making, combining with other causes, until the breach in the walls occurred.

If this is true of the power of a raindrop, how much more so is it true of the power of our thoughts?  What effects am I unconsciously creating?  Am I being a powerful Gatekeeper of my Mind, or am I in the default mode, allowing access to negativity, doubt, fear, collective consciousness……

I get to choose.

And I master the tools, so that I choose wisely.

The Domino Effect of Thought:  Play it out to the end in your mind’s eye, and rejoice in the possibilities if you are the Master of your Mind. Or if you are not, then, at the least, prepare for what may occur, for unconscious creation obeys the same laws.

Week 10: The Master Key Experience – And Then The Rains Came….

 

flood-warning

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!  My husband and I just moved into our beautiful new home in Hayesville, North Carolina, in the middle of November. So many things about the house that I absolutely LOVE, and then there WAS that one thing that made me cringe.

The carpet in our daylight basement epitomized early 1980s rubber backed indoor/outdoor ugliness…probably the ugliest carpeting ever made by man.  I casually remarked to John that I really wanted to pull that out and replace it.  He said he’d rather install hardwood floors on the main level first. We were, and still, are unpacking.  Plenty of time.

And then the rains came.  8-10 inches in 12 hours.  John awoke several times that night. He told

Eden Falls

Eden Falls

me later that it sounded like some wizard had transported our home under a waterfall.  Now, John was raised in the Panhandle of Florida…Hurricane rains don’t faze him, but his storm did.  I awoke early on December 2, put Star’s leash on her and went down stairs to take her outside, and heard “Squish Squish Squish” under my feet as I hit the lower level.  I turned on the lights. The entire basement was flooded.  The carpet was saturated. I quickly went into the ACTION mode, finding a shop vac and working until 1AM the following morning sucking water out of the floors, all in all, over 30 gallons of water.  I found a large shop fan and turned in on high.  The next morning, I could still see my footprints on the carpeting when I walked across it.  I saw where the water had leached up the walls.  I assessed my losses…books, notes, my MKMMA Workbook, water damage to original art which we had not yet hung on the walls…..

Miraculously, none of my leather bound books were damaged, and I had boxes and boxes of them. The art seemed to be drying out ok, but the carpet……. I had to call in the professionals. Mildew was already forming, and Black Mold is NOT on my Bucket List!

thoughts-create-realityThen it hit me.  I laughed out loud.  Haanel, Week 10, tells us “Nothing happens without a definite cause.” Although I have felt pure gratitude throughout this entire experience, I also realized that I was grateful to be getting rid of the World’s Ugliest Carpeting.  BAM!!!!! If only I had been MORE SPECIFIC!!!!!!  Instead of water leaching through the foundation, creating a non-insurable water damage event, I should have told the Universe EXACTLY how I wanted us to be rid of this abomination of ugliness!!!!  There were many other options other than flooding through a saturated foundation!!!!  I’ve learned THAT lesson!!!!

The Restoration People tore out the carpeting, set up the dehumidifiers and fans, and treated all the surfaces to kill any mold and mildew present and to prevent any new from growing.  Once the place completely dries out, they’ll tear out the rubber padding, the linoleum, leaving me with clean, concrete floors.  I’ll make the space beautiful once again, more beautiful than before, for as I has already demonstrated this week, straight from Scroll III, “I persist until I succeed.”

The Master Keys Experience….There’s Nothing Like It!!
