Week Twenty-One: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Power to Name

 

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.

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 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 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 Ten: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Wizards and Warriors

 
The Wizard Brings Magic into All He Does

The Wizard Brings Magic into All He Does

What a GREAT Week!  The Wizard of OG introduces us to Scroll Three: I Persist Until I Succeed.  Haanel reiterates this in Week 10: Only APPLIED Knowledge is Power.  This flies in the face of the thousands of Universities who have engraved across their edifices “Knowledge is Power”…..another of the great lies which enslave the mind and cause men to live lives of quiet desperation.

How did Og Mandino become Wizardly?  Og Mandino became Wizardly the same way Walt Disney, another great Wizard, became Wizardly, through the skill of being a Warrior.

In the face of massive opposition and repeated rejection, Walt Disney persisted.

In the face of haunting laughter of successful men dismissing his drawings, Walt Disney persisted.

In the face of poverty, living in his office on a diet of cold canned beans, Walt Disney persisted.

In the middle of the firestorm of WWII, surrounded by the horrors and violence of war, Walt Disney persisted.

He honed his skill.  Walt did not start out with a clear vision or his passion and purpose. This is

The Warrior Continuously Hones His Skills

where the Warrior in him developed. Before Mickey Mouse, there was a life of designing stationary, making program covers for movie theaters, and drawing ads for small businesses in his hometown of Kansas City.   He continuously followed his bliss, experimented, and kept taking one small step at a time, probably totally unconscious of the Warrior Skills being perfected.

That’s the Prize you get from Persistence.

He moved to Hollywood. Mickey Mouse debuted. The rest, as they say, is history.

What does this have to do with The Master Keys, the Great MKMMA Adventure?

EVERYTHING!

It’s a six month journey, and we are not quite half way through.  We are integrating the patterns of success….the sit, the readings, the cards, the movie poster, the shapes… building tens of thousands of bridges across our respective Corpus Callosums [Sounds like something a WIZARD would say as he waves his wand, does it not?], learning to live at Mach speed, reaching escape velocity in our rocket ship which is taking us to the life of our Definite Major Purpose.  We must grow both our Wizard and our Warrior to get to the space of Effortless Creation of the desires of our hearts.

We can do this.

We tell ourselves so 20 times each day.  I [The I AM, that aspect of us that is connected with God] can be what I will to be.

Persistence…. It’s how the knowledge we are studying is applied.  It’s how our Warrior grows into both a Samurai and a Ninja.  It’s how we master Wizardry, bringing magic into our lives once more.  It’s the Golden Key unlocking so much more than we can know.

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.
