Week CW 15A: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Sleeping with the Enemy

 

sleeping with the EnemyAre you sleeping with the ENEMY? Unlike the movie of the same name, the enemy is not someone who has imprisoned you in a beautiful mansion overlooking the ocean. He is not someone who quietly intimidates you into submission. He is not someone who controls your every move.

The enemy is within. The enemy is DOUBT. Doubt persecutes your thoughts, invades your mind, undermines your dreams, and destroys your relationships. Doubt.

Can you eradicate DOUBT? I don’t know if YOU can eradicate it or not, but I DO know that self-doubt-handas a result of an investment of six months of my life, I have eradicated doubt from my mind and my life, and replaced it with that most attractive of characteristics, Self-Confidence! Self-Confidence is the defining difference between athletes who are highly accomplished and the ones who win the Gold at the Olympics. There is no Fairy Godmother who will waive her Magic Wand, tap you on the head, and grant you this great gift. You are the only one who can give it to you, and if you want it, it will take commitment, dedication, consistency, and work.

That’s the bad news.

Week C5: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Sorcerer's Stone

 

bullyingAs a child, do you remember being taught “Sticks and Stones can Break my Bones, but WORDS can never Hurt Me”?  I think that is the first LIE my Mama told me, and it was a lesson with life-long repercussions!  This little rhyme, well intended as it is, taught us that words have no power to create.

Later in life, perhaps you were told to choose your words carefully as, once spoken, they can never be recalled and “Words are Things”.  I call this PROGRESS!  It acknowledges that words can cut to the quick, or they can heal and sooth, creating intimacy and a loving energy.

Now we know the full truth. Words are POWER.

In the first Harry Potter novel, the Sorcerer’s Stone was a man-made, blood-red stone with which could be made the Elixir of Life, aSorcerer's Stone magical substance which extended the drinker’s lifespan indefinitely and also could transform any substance into gold.  It has been the object of Alchemists for centuries, and even today, is reputed to have been created, bringing wealth and long life to the bearers.  All magic depends upon spells, words which, properly directed, create astonishing results, results with the appearance of having been created out of nothingness.

 

Isn’t that idea both very attractive and seductive? Many have lost their souls and their lives looking for power in all the wrong places.  Our word choices are the first expression in creation of our authentic power. That power is the power of Thought as CAUSE in our lives.  The construction of words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success. Used properly in the form of concentration charged with emotion, they propel us to our desired future.

The Sorcerer’s Stone of WORD Power, unconsciously wielded, imprisons. The power of the Label has destroyed many a life.  The power of Thought as Cause in the form of Expectation has both loosed genius upon the world as well as destroyed entire generations of humanity.  You ALWAYS get what you expect, so why not expect the BEST?

Another powerful example of both expectation and the refusal of a parent to label a child is in the life of Judith Bluestone.  She was deaf, but learned to speak. Her parents refused to treat her differently from other children.  Later in life, a CT scan was performed on her. The part of the brain responsible for speech was missing from Judith’s brain.  She developed a powerful modality to heal the brains of children known as the HANDLE Method out of which The Handle Institute was formed. The lives of thousands upon thousands of children have been transformed.  You can learn more about it here: http://www.handle.org

What self-created or imposed limitations have you placed upon you?  What Other-created or imposed expectations is your life fulfilling?  You CAN be the master of your life, IF you are willing to pay the price and do the work of becoming conscious.  It’s not for the weak of spirit, but it is worth everything.

Week Twenty-Four: The Great MKMMA Adventure – DARE to Live!

 

Nouvelle_JerusalemWhat is the purpose of the Hero’s Journey other than to retrieve your very soul from the pits of hell to which you, your family, your community, your beliefs, and the limitations of conforming to societal expectations have condemned it?

During the civil wars in feudal Japan, an invading army would quickly sweep into a town and take control. In one particular village, everyone fled just before the army arrived – everyone except the Zen master. Curious about this old fellow, the general went to the temple to see for himself what kind of man this master was. When he wasn’t treated with the deference and submissiveness to which he was accustomed, the general burst into anger. “You fool,” he shouted as he reached for his sword, “don’t you realize you are standing before a man who could run you through without blinking an eye!” But despite the threat, the master seemed unmoved. “And do you realize,” the master replied calmly, samurai-monk“that you are standing before a man who can be run through without blinking an eye?”

The Law of Least Effort: Defenselessness: “I relinquish the need to defend my point of view….to convince or persuade others to accept my point of view.  I remain open to all points of view and am not rigidly attached to any one of them.

I AM not the body.
The Body is just a subtle instrument of the Soul.
I AM not the emotion.
Emotion is just a subtle instrument of the Soul.
I AM not the thought.
Thought is just a subtle instrument of the Soul.
I AM not the mind.
The Mind is just a subtle instrument of the Soul.
    I AM the Soul.
I AM THAT, I AM.
                         I AM a Spiritual Being
    of
Divine Intelligence, Divine Love, Divine Power.
                   I AM One with my Higher Soul.
       I AM One with the Divine Spark within me.
I AM a Child of God,
Connected with God, ONE with God, ONE with ALL.
         I AM THAT, I AM.

 

This is the life giving treasure, the fountain of youth and vitality, the secret of eternal life that is revealed within universal-mind-quantum-power-1000x500the heart of the one who harkens to the herald and dares to walk into the darkness of the abyss. What is it worth?  It is priceless. This truth is the treasure the Hero brings back to the tribe, and the truth that the tribe often rejects in spite of their love of the story. This is why the Hero’s Journey is the only story worth telling. Perhaps the telling of it opens the hearing of another who then has the courage to answer his own herald’s call.

 

I invite all of you to tell your stories. What a gift of eternal proportion!  Your life is your gift. It’s the only gift you give, so give it!

Dare to live.

Week Twenty-Three: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Am I the Vine?

 

snowy-owl-101117-02Owls are silent hunters.  Silent as in absolutely without sound. No flapping wings. And contrary to the scenes of them delivering mail in the Harry Potter movies, no vocalizations either. I remember one morning when I was in the woods near my home, I spied an owl perched in a tree. I gazed at him for more than a few minutes, remaining absolutely still as well. Finally he swooped from one tree to another….in silence….I continued to observe him.  After about 15 minutes, I became aware of another presence somewhere.  I searched the treetops and in a second tree some 100 feet away, very close to the top, was another owl.  My gaze moved between them for several more minutes, until they both took flight and silently disappeared into the deeper woods.

The silence brings increased awareness, a higher consciousness, a profound understanding that we truly are all connected.  When my vibration is that of peace and harmony, nature reveals her secrets, her magical beauty and wonders.  It is a perfect expression of the Law of Least Effort.  In that space, I am in absolute acceptance. I choose responsibility for my entire being, consciously aligning with God All That Is, and I am utterly defenseless…..what is there to defend when you are at one with all?

Immersing in Silence and Stillness produces Serenity, with the effect of being Vibrantly Alive on a whole new level.

A Spiritual Being, the Uncreated, having an experience of the Created World.  It’s how God chose to grow us.  Tending to the Vine vine and branchescauses the branches to grow stronger and faster, reaching new heights, and producing a bountiful harvest of fruit.

Am I the vine because I am the branch, producing the fruit, supported and sustained by the vine, of like being with it, at one with it, the same in substance, just different in degree?

Am I the vine because I see clearly what is to come before it is created?

Am I the vine because I work through the power of the Spirit to mold the plasticity of creation into the forms that serve me and allow me to be of service to others?

Am I the vine because I give joyously, thereby creating the space to receive joyously?

These are the never ending stories of our hearts unfolding as we greet each sunrise, each moonrise, each turning of the circles of life within.

WEEK NINETEEN: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Skim Milk Mascarades as Cream

 

Borrowed_plumesAs Buttercup in HMS Pinafore sweetly sings to the Captain,

“Things are seldom what they seem,
Skim milk masquerades as cream;
Highlows pass as patent leathers;
Jackdaws strut in peacock’s feathers.”

So what am I looking at?  What am I seeing?

Does what I see have any bearing on what really IS?

 The Sun sets. The stars traverse the Heavens until the Rising Sun obliterates their images in its dazzling light.

Or not.

Imagine yourself standing upon the earth, looking at this wonderful night. What is really happening? The EARTH is spinning at 1040 miles per hour, changing my position on it with respect to the Sun and the Stars, resulting in the panorama pictured above. The Stars ARE moving as well, but not as I perceive them to move.

What else is happening?

As The World Turns at 1040 miles per hour, the Solar System at the Earth is spinning around the Sun at 67,062 miles per hour!  The Solar System is also careening through space, spinning around the Milky Way Galaxy at 560,000 miles per hour as it oscillates in a sine curve pattern  250 light years above and below the elliptical of the galaxy.  Of course, the Galaxies also engage in a dance as well, and the Milky Way is on a collision course with Andromeda.  As I ponder that, I get dizzy!

In the Master Key System, Haanel states, “In the Moral World we again find the same law; we speak of good and evil, but Good is a reality, something tangible, while Evil is found to be simply a negative condition, the absence of Good. Evil is sometimes thought to be a very real condition, but it has no principle, no vitality, no life; we know this because it can always be destroyed by Good; just as Truth destroys Error and light destroys darkness, so Evil vanishes when Good appears; there is therefore but one principle in the Moral World.”

And what is that principle?  For me, it is the expression of Love, the ONE Power and Cause of all that is, that was, and that is to come.

Love give us the strength to do what would otherwise be impossible.

Love’s presence eliminates what we see and perceive as evil.

Love’s light shatters the darkness.

Love IS.

When I change the way I look at things, the things I look at change.

Can I change the way I look at things such that I see the core of love in everyone I meet, in everything I encounter?

Can I see God in YOU?

Only if I first experience God in Me.

love-is-all-there-is

Happy Valentine’s Day!
