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?

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 CW18: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Dance of Shiva

 

shiva-fireIn the Dance of Shiva, Shiva, the Supreme Hindu God of Creation and Destruction, simultaneously destroys and creates reality.

Guess what?  WE can do likewise. As Joseph Campbell said, “We’re not on a journey to save the world, but to save ourselves. But in doing so, you save the world. The influence of a vital person     vitalizes. We save ourselves, vitalize ourselves, and inspire others when we hear and follow the compass within our heart always directing us     towards our bliss.”

Last year, when I began this journey, my imagination was ruled by my ego, continually informing me that I must be good, do good, satisfy the wants and desires of everyone on the planet, and ignore the whisperings of my heart. I had forgotten how to dream.

The Hero’s Journey I undertook in the Master Key Experience changed all of that. It truly was, and continues to be, a journey of http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photos-open-book-image23651818Mythic Proportions!

My ego continually attempts to entrap me into believing that I must                 aspire  after that which is already my birthright, my divine inheritance, my essence. I dared to harken to the     Herald’s Call, and my life now arises from the applied knowledge gleaned from the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.

Today, I had the delightful experience of viewing Jim Carrey giving a commencement speech to the Class of 2014 at Maharish University. As I watched the commencement speech, I wept. I am so grateful to God for bringing me to this journey, for blessing me with sages along the path of the unknown whose knowledge and http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-reset-your-brain-human-button-image31357862experience and         wisdom imbued me with the tools to break out of the multiplex of the mind, hit the RESET button, and be the light that shines through the distractions created by the ego to illumine the path for others, that their lights may shine forth from happy hearts.

You can fail at what you do not like, so why not try what you love? It’s a great question. Let us be not only those young men who have visions and those old men who dream dreams, but those who engage the universe in Shiva’s dance, destroying that which destroys us and creating that which IS life, and love, and light.

In less than two months, another Master Key Experience begins! If you want to answer your own Herald’s Call and step into your magnificence, leave your name and email below. There are only 1000 Pay-It-Forward Scholarships available. It is my hope that you qualify for one of them!

Week Eleven: The Great MKMMA Adventure Meets The Polar Express

 

Polar-Express_31-300x184Like the Hero Boy in The Polar Express, we must DECIDE to Believe, and when we do, the desires of our hearts come into being.

Our task this week is to internalize the skill of, the gift of, the process of belief. For ten weeks, we have been putting our hand to the plow, preparing the soil, planting the seeds, weeding the garden, watering the tiny sprouts as they break out of the darkness of the rich soil into which they were planted and begin following the Sun, upward, higher, and higher, soaking in the life giving rays until this week, when it is time to bring in the Harvest.

That Harvest is the Decision to Believe, the ACCEPTANCE of the Invitation to Connect with God and co-create with Him.

I choose to Believe.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24
