Week Twenty-Three: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Karma-Kazi Success Secret

Kamikazes Don't Know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Kamikaze?

Kamikazes Don’t Know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Kamikaze?

Are you a Kamikaze or a Karma-Kazi?

The answer lies in your answer to another question: Whom Shall I Serve?

It’s an eternal question, or a question of eternal proportion. It’s a business question. It’s a friendship question. It’s a family question. It’s a community question. It’s THE question.

Whom Shall I serve?

God? Of course!

Yourself? Definitely!

Your Husband or Wife? Most Assuredly!

Your Clients and Customers? You’d be CRAZY if you didn’t!

Hmmmmmmm…….. It seems that Haanel is correct.  “The Law of Success is Service;

Karma-Kazis know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Karma-Kazi?

Karma-Kazis know the Rules of the Game of Life. Are you a Karma-Kazi?

that we get what we give, and for this reason, we should consider it a great privilege to be able to give.”

It’s THE Success Secret of the Ages.

It’s more than simply PROVIDING a service.  It’s the HEART behind the service that distinguishes you, that determines if you are a Kamikaze or a Karma-Kaze. It’s the difference between playing the game of life according to ‘them’ and playing the game of life after learning the rules…the rules of following the desires of your heart…the rules of discovering your purpose and passion and then doggedly moving closer to it with every breath you take.

It’s the Hero’s Journey, beautifully lived by Og Mandino. It’s in living in heart centered service to others that our purpose is given away, that Success in EVERY area of life is manifested.

It’s in service that success finds you and grows all around you. Karma-Kazi…you give what you love and love returns to you 10,000 fold.

Whom Shall I Serve?

Serve Your Passion and Purpose!  This is the WHY of your presence on the planet, and the means through which you express the gifts and talents that are uniquely yours! It is how YOU show up in life, in work, in community, in the market place. It is the vehicle through which the energy of money flows, blessing all who come in contact with you.  This is HOW you serve God, your family, your community, your clients, your customers…..

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 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.

Week C4: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Baby, Can You Fix My Car?


broken carI am 3 hours from home in Hotlanta, GA, with a broken down car. My husband is out of town at a conference, and my two dog children are at home, waiting for their Mommy to return and feed them and play with them. [Thankfully, they are in the yard!] Once upon a time, this would have been a major stressor, a source of huge upset and anger. But no more!  I laugh at my world!!

After quickly determining my worst case scenario, all without the least bit of stress, the following refrain wafts up into my conscious mind from the cool, refreshing canyons of the Subby. “Will my concern for this day not seem foolish ten years hence? Why should I permit the petty happenings of today to disturb me?” I smile. Filled with gratitude, I see the tectonic plates of consciousness shifting. I am calm and at peace.

More refrains. “I laugh at the world. And with my laughter, all things are reduced to their proper size.” I notice that I am the object of curiosity to all the life is goodothers in the Pranic Healing class of which I am a part. I AM laughing, happy and grateful that a tow truck is on the way and that I and my little car will soon be at a repair shop. The song continues. “Never do I allow myself to … forget how to laugh at myself and my world.”   I live the Law of Least Effort: I accept that things are as they should be. I take responsibility for myself. I have no need to defend anything around this little bump in the road.

Hmmmmmm. Maybe I need to find one of those “LIFE IS GOOD” shirts or caps and wear it! Why not? Life IS good. And I am happy and thankful.

closed repair shopIt’s Saturday afternoon, and even in Atlanta, everything seems to be closed. A Hero of a Fellow in the guise of a Tow Truck Driver persevered, at no extra charge, until we finally ended up at a Sears Automotive!

They are looking at my car to diagnose the source of its fever, and I am scouting out a rental car….at Hartsfield International Airport as all other locations are closed….. fever

I’ll be on the road again, singing joyfully and laughing at my world as I trek to the most beautiful place on the planet, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and home. I believe that is called self-control of the self-directed mind, one of the fruits of the Master Key, Mastermind Alliance experience.  How blessed am I to be a part of this great adventure!

This too shall pass

Week C1: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Agent Smith Removes His Earpiece


OLDBLUEPRINTBORISI have great hope for Agent Smith. In my version of The Matrix, he evolves from machine to Man.  What is my evidence for this?  When he speaks with Morpheus, he removes his ear earpiecepiece.  This little device connects him to all the other machines. They are not individuals, but part of a collective. They all know where the others in the system are, what they are thinking, saying, doing.  Agent Smith is different. Through some means not revealed in the movie, Agent Smith has developed his individual consciousness. He is aware of his power to choose to be a part of the mass consciousness or to be something else…to be what Emerson calls Self-Reliant, a man who is capable of acting out of his own thinking, a man who, by this very act, threatens society.  Agent Smith’s action of removing that little tracking device connecting him to the world of machines is an act of great courage.Agent Smmith no earpiece He does not want everyone else to know that he is speaking with Morpheus, that he is awake and aware of the system of which he is a part, and that he is highly dissatisfied with his place in the Matrix. He has emotions, expressing frustration, impatience, exhaustion, and hatred of the Matrix itself and his place in it.

Agent Smith answered the Herald’s Call and put himself in a place to change his world.

The MKMMA training gives us that same power, with a few critical distinctions.  We know from the Law of Growth that whatever we think about grows, and what we ignore, atrophies.  We know to focus on what we WANT in life, and to power that with emotions. We even know how to turn anger into energy to move us closer to the fulfillment of our life purpose and dreams; how to turn fear into laser focus; how to turn hurt feelings into gratitude for being capable of deeply caring; how to turn guilt into powerful validation of our ability to know the next right thing to do; and how to transmute unworthiness to humility, keeping us on track.

kermit_bikes_01-620x344EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, we are now mastering Rule Number Six.  I was delighted to learn that this rule is one of life’s great truths!  It has been my mantra for decades that it is my job to keep myself amused.  Laughing at myself keeps my life in perspective, especially when Agent Smith’s companion machines appear, intent upon stealing my joy.


Two prime ministers are sitting in a room discussing affairs of state. Suddenly a man bursts in, apoplectic with fury, shouting and stamping and banging his fist on the desk. The resident prime minister admonishes him: “Peter,” he says, “kindly remember Rule Number 6,” whereupon Peter is instantly restored to complete calm, apologizes, and withdraws.

The politicians return to their conversation, only to be interrupted yet again twenty minutes later by a hysterical woman gesticulating wildly, her hair flying. Again, the intruder is greeted with the words, “Marie, please remember Rule Number 6.” Complete calm descends once more, and she too withdraws with a bow and an apology.

When the scene is repeated for a third time, the visiting prime minister addresses his colleague. “My dear friend, I’ve seen many things in my life, but never anything as remarkable as this. Would you be willing to share with me the secret of Rule Number 6?”

“Very simple,” replies the resident prime minister. “Rule Number 6 is ‘Don’t take yourself so g–damn seriously.’”

“Ah,” Says his visitor, that is a fine rule.”

After a moment of pondering, he inquires, “And what, may I ask, are the other rules?”

“There aren’t any.”

Og Mandino says there is nothing as comical as taking oneself too seriously. After I stop laughing at me, with a big, big smile, I remind myself that ‘This too shall pass’ and I have the pleasure of getting on with my life, now restored by the act and gift of laughter.
