Week Twenty-Two: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Sounds of Silence


Long ago in a galaxy far away, Simon & Garfunkel released a beautiful ballad, The Sounds of Silence. The lyrics resonated with the generation out to change the world. I am a part of that generation, and was actively working to change the world then, as I am now.

The Sound Of Silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”

As I reflect upon them now, five decades later, I recognize in them the Hero’s Journey. I see the traps, habits, patterns, and distractions that keep us from our life purpose and passion, and the sound of the Herald’s Call, beckoning those with ears to hear of the great adventure of their life. Without a Helper, a Wizard or Witch in the Woods who appears in the life of the Hero while on his journey, quicksand, bandits, and the snake pits of old habits of thinking, being, and doing successfully sidetrack the Hero. I was sidetracked for years, but I continually returned to the Quest.

As a Certified Guide in The Master Keys, I have had the honor of being a helper to 15 brave and courageous men and women. Our tribe started with 25, but the hazards of the journey took some of us. The transformation bursting forth in the lives of these heroes astounds me, and humbles me. One woman called me with ecstatic joy realizing that she finally met her heart, her true self, and because of this work, she is free. Another man has shed all that slowed him down from fulfilling his life dream and is moving, full steam ahead, into his purpose. All of those who stay the course return to their origins with treasures beyond price. Self-Discovery…it’s found in the Sounds of Silence, every day, for 15 minutes, doing the work of the mind, the heart, and the spirit. I bow to all who dare to hope, to dream, that they can change the world through changing themselves and their lives. You can, too, if you choose.

This is sometimes what a Hero’s Journey can look like:

Week Twenty: The Great MKMMA Adventure – Grist for the Mill

The Grist Mill

The Grist Mill

Gristmills…..  Most incorrectly imagine that wheat is simply poured into the mechanism of the mill and out comes flour! We don’t see the transformation process. We don’t see the reasons why wheat yields flour under the pressure of the millstones.

What is that unseen factor? It is actually the art of the Miller. It is he who has the knowledge, experience, and skill to separate the grains of wheat to yield flour. He knows how to work with grist, the grains of wheat separated from the outer shells and ready to be poured into the next sieve.

Looking at your life, what do you see that is grist for your journey? Is Fear grist? What about

The Tools of a Master Miller

The Tools of a Master Miller

Guilt? Or Unworthiness? Or Hurt Feelings? Or even Anger? How are these beneficial to you in accomplishing your goals and desires?

Each is a highly valued friend and ally, a tool to master in the toolbox of life. I didn’t always think this, but I’ve had the benefit of working with a Master Miller who knows exactly how to turn ‘chaff’ into food for the soul.

One night last March, I rounded a bend on a highway to see a stopped vehicle half-way in my lane and half-way in the lane to the left. There was no time to stop. Slowing down would not have saved me. I was awake, alert, aware, and totally focused. I was also scared. Hitting a stopped object at 65mph would not be pretty. I could die. If there was anyone in that stopped car, they could die. I was hyper-concentrated on my surroundings. I successfully maneuvered my vehicle, avoiding the stopped car without bleeding into the lane to my right, thereby not endangering the cars in that lane that were also traveling at high speeds.

Fear. Food for Life in that circumstance. What did I learn about fear that night? When I am afraid, I am super conscious, focused, aware, alert, and alive. I took appropriate action, and a ‘happy ending’ ensued. Can I take that experience, insight, and understanding to every situation wherein I find myself afraid? Definitely, but only if I am conscious of being fearful. Fear can be subtle, and when it is, it becomes a tool to keep me in patterns and habits that do not serve me, unless I identify it. Once named, I can take fear and put it to work to further my goals and interests.

Question: Can you think of a time when fear actually helped you? Please share those experiences in the comments below. I’ll be answering every comment.

Then please share this on your Facebook, Twitter, and Social Media accounts and let’s see how many ways fear can be Grist for the Mill of Your Success.

Week Seventeen HJ: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Q-Tip Question


fingers-in-earsDo you remember your mean mama telling you to clean out your ears so you could hear what she was saying to you?

We’ve now got the Hero’s Journey, Self-Discovery, Personal Responsibility Q-Tip Question to totally shatter any denial we may have about our life circumstances and conditions.

What Am I Pretending Not to KNOW?

Every night, I get to face the Gal in the Glass, and check out how I’ve done all day, over all…… That’s the BIG PICTURE!

Now, I get to exercise my ‘I am ARMED AND DANGEROUS’ Thinking Muscles with the DETAILS Question…….

What am I pretending not to know?

This week, I am entering the ENTIRE YEAR of our company’s transactions into Quick Books. I did Denialthis same drill last year. I’m not getting to do what I love, not able to even walk the dogs or have a decent meal with my husband because I have to get this done.

What am I pretending not to know? That had I done my work monthly, this would have already been finished by the 5th of January.

Yesterday, I ate way too much sugar [probably comfort eating because of the work in Quick Books] and my kidneys became inflamed.

What am I pretending not to know? That if I eat poison, I get sick, and sugar is poison.

I’ve been a Pranic Healer for 5 years. There is a FIELD TESTED protocol which corrects the condition labeled Scoliosis. According to the latest picture of my spine, I have a severe laterally twisted spine that curves around my solar plexus chakra.

denial-landWhat am I pretending not to know? That I have lived with this imbalance 4½ years longer than I needed to do so because I was too lazy to commit to three 30-minute treatments a week to correct this. [I’ll be documenting this healing with x-rays and posting it for all to see.]

What am I pretending not to know? That I was afraid it would not work, so rather than try it, I did nothing.

How many times has THAT pattern stopped me from living into my full potentiality? Simply knowing that was so in my life allows me to completely apply the law of substitution and the law of Growth, and move into my vision, passion, and purpose.

What am I pretending not to know? Yep. My mean mama was right! I’ve needed to clean out my ears so I could hear what the Universe has been saying to me.

Heart-Sun1And as a result of doing so, I am free.

The Privilege of a Lifetime

If you want to master the skills of Thought as Cause in your life,

stop living as a victim of circumstances,

and become the master of the ship of your life,

embark upon your Hero’s Journey. The next Master Keys begins in September. To put yourself at the top of the list of potential Pay-It-Forward Scholarships, leave your name and email below.

Week CW21: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The Lunatic Fringe


conformity1Read a great book summary this week: Break from the Pack by Oren Harari. The book explores the quagmire of Commodity Hell resulting from the lemming-like emergence of a global ‘copy cat’ mentality and the perils of being ‘one of many in the pack’. Sooner, rather than later, the pack is backed into a downward spiral with the destructive potential of the Ebola virus going through a remote village in Africa. The destruction stops when everyone is dead. The addictive processes of the Copy Cat, stuck in the pack of Commodity Hell destroy companies, jobs, communities, and people. The death sentence manifests as Whitman’s quiet life of desperation,          unless, and until, you choose the road less traveled. If you make that choice, if you          answer that Herald’s Call, just how do you break out of the pack? How do you re-create yourself? The book is talking about markets, and it lists 11 qualities essential to breaking out of the pack into the lead.

meaning of life 2

I am talking about your life,
something vastly more important.

For myself, none of those qualities were possible until I became, in Emerson’s words, DANGEROUS, until I had become Self-Reliant, touch of madnesswhat Jack Welch refers to as being ‘out on the      Lunatic Fringe’. In a world governed by institutions that increasingly demand a lower and lower common denominator of individualism and ever        increasing obedience to authority, creativity is discouraged. My husband is a counselor, and the new diagnostic manual has made a mental illness of almost everything that could possibly distinguish someone in life. In other words, if you do not conform to the behaviors of an obedient and compliant population, you must be mentally ill.


extraordinary-girl-inspiration-life-quote-favim-com-128258_largeMost people, once they realize what is being imposed upon them, get angry until they discover that there is a better way to express their displeasure. The Master Keys, Master Mind Alliance was and is that better way for me. By casting my lot with creativity and self-discovery, my life has become self-directed in the service of others, and happiness and harmony bubble up from within me. By choosing to do the work of the MKMMA, I discovered that becoming one of Emerson’s Dangerous people, I am able to make a huge contribution to the world! Most people become very excited when they realize that they, too, can discover themselves, loose their magnificence upon the world, and re-wire their brains for effortless creation of the desires of their hearts! I am doing this work for a second time starting next month. I cannot wait to discover what being part of that Lunatic Fringe of people who think, laugh, love life, give selflessly, and leaves the pack farther and farther behind will bring this time around!  Do the IMPOSSIBLE!  It’s FUN!!

Yes, As amazing as this may sound, THIS is a recreation of the Battle between the Old Blue Print and the New Blue Print.

TODAY, TODAY, TODAY, I launched my MLM business with the amazing support of some of the company’s great leaders.  They hosted and did my Launch Call. But guess what?

I had to call and invite people.

What ensued was nothing less than the battle featured above.  Orcs and Zombies surrounded the castle with the intention of tearing down the walls and over running the peaceful inhabitants living in perfect harmony within.

CALL RESISTANCE??  OH MY GOD!!!  I had to stop everything so that I could LAUGH at the miscreant beasts attempting yet again to suppress and oppress my Life Purpose and Passion.

Thanks to the MKMMA Experience, I possess weapons of mass destruction: Habit. Always Keeping my Promises. Persistence. The 7 Laws of Mind. Framed Firelighters. Instant Rapport Builders. The Wisdom of OG. Focus. Concentration. The Blue Print Builder. Cards. The Law of Giving. The Mental Diet. The Makeover. The Mind Gym. The KNOWLEDGE of my POWER. The COURAGE to DARE.  The FAITH to DO.

And most powerful of all, NARC!!!!  I NARCed my way through 60 calls, 10 calls at a time, and LAUGHED OUT LOUD as I watched the Orc and Zombie infested Old Blue Print vainly strive to retake Middle Earth.  These Invaders Scattered, then regrouped, launched another attack, then fall back…..finally charging the Fortress of the New Blue Print again only to be scalded by Bear Hugs Kettles of Boiling Oil poured over them from the Crenellations.  It was an amazing battle, with the NARC KNIGHTS of Rohan descending en mass from the heights,  destroying every Orc and ZOMBIE left standing.

The Calls were Made.  The Launch Call Completed. The Vision Moves Forward.
