The Master Key Experience: Week C2 – Quicksand Quagmires Getting You Down?

 

quagmire-word-nerdDo you love your life? ALL of it? How about MOST of it?  Unfortunately, many people cannot answer YES to any of those questions.  Why is that?  Could it be that most people find themselves living out the expectations placed upon them by the systems in which they operate?

 

The Quicksand Quagmires of life:

  • Family Systems
  • Community Systems
  • Religious Systems
  • Employment Systems
  • Legal Systems
  • Political Systems
  • Government Systems

YIKES!!!! How can anyone successfully navigate all of that and live a life of passion and purpose?  There IS a lot to be said for duty, but personal responsibility is a separate creature from system responsibility. What does one do upon awakening and realizing their life is about someone ELSE’S expectations, purpose, and passion? What does one do upon awakening and seeing that their life is devoid of meaning? What does one do when they suddenly see their soul dying before them?

First, we stop. We cannot chart a new course if we do not know where we are on the map.  You youarehere7-2know exactly what I mean by this. All of us have been in some humongous mall looking for a specific store, feeling totally lost and clueless as to how to get there. Then, a miracle happens! We see a large MAP of the Mall!  First, we find the store, and then we search for that “X”, the one that says “YOU ARE HERE”.  It is only then we can successfully reach our objective.

Three years ago, I realized I was neck deep in Quicksand. All my accomplishments and achievements did not bring me joy. I was, and am, a happy person, because I CHOOSE Happiness [It’s good for my health!], but my life did not quicken my spirit, ignite my soul, or capture my imagination.

b405e1091eae0436036d306402903988I stumbled upon The Master Key Experience, and charted a course to a life of passion and purpose.  I was not very far off course, but that self-discovery course correction has made all the difference in the world. My life is fired by ENTHUSIASM for all that I now do. I released that which did not serve me. The beauty in this is that the service I render unto others became exponentially more powerful and effective as a result. Focusing on living an authentic life changes everything.

There was no magic wand waved turning my pumpkin life into a fabulous coach. There is a lot of effort required when you embark upon your Hero’s Journey. And I’m still on the path. New adventures open as present adventures end. Truly, my life is a miracle. And yours can be as well.

Week Two: The Master Key Experience – Gatekeeper or Monkey Mind?

 

What you think you become You are what you eat. How many times have we heard it, thought it, and said it?  The body perfectly expresses the truth of this statement. What about the mind? You are what you THINK!  This is equally true and this eternal truth is expressed in many traditions.

The Bible: “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” [Proverbs 4:23]

The Buddha: “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.’ 

Emerson: “You become what you think about all day long.”

Pretty powerful stuff!  No wonder we focus on self-mastery in both body and mind in the Monkey MindMaster Key Experience.  In Week 1, our assignment was to sit perfectly still for 15 minutes.  This week, Week 2, our assignment is to sit perfectly still for 15 minutes with no thought.  I achieve a series of moments of mindlessness daily. The Monkey Mind rules, however!  The Monkey Mind is the mind of distractions. The Monkey Mind fills my time of repose and focus with ‘To Do’ lists, mini-rants, questions, curiosities about the sounds I hear outside…….and on and on and on.  It is a humbling demonstration of the importance of training the mind, for if my life is shaped by my thoughts, it is beneficial to be the one consciously directing those thoughts.

 

tame the monkey mindAnd consciously directing thoughts is the job of the Objective mind. If we are to create our life through our thoughts, then we must be in control of the thoughts that enter into our consciousness. Haanel tells us “Not only can it impress other minds, but it can direct the subconscious mind. In this way the conscious mind becomes the responsible ruler and guardian of the subconscious mind. It is this high function which can completely reverse conditions in your life.”

Mastering the Seven Laws of Mind empowers us to become the master of our lives, the Gatekeeper who directs and instructs the sub-conscious mind such that the life of the desires of our hearts becomes our daily experience.

Stay tuned. This adventure only gets more interesting!

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 Sixteen: The Great MKMMA Adventure – The 10 Habits of Kindness

 

Kindness WaveThis week, we loosed Wave of Kindness upon the world: 300 people committed to committing a minimum of 2 random acts of kindness done with an attitude of love each and every day.

If the wing of a butterfly as it moves across a field in South America affects the air currents on the entire planet, what do you think the      focused attention of 300 people can accomplish in transforming the world into a kinder, gentler place?

The practice of kindness enriches us, enlivens, us, and results in happiness. Each act of kindness has a ripple effect, and we really have no way of knowing how many lives each random act of kindness has in the world.

There is a sweetness in life when lived in the experience and energy of loving-kindness. And who doesn’t like sweet?

So, to sweeten your life, here are your 10 Habits of Kindness:

  1. Kind People Send flowers, chocolates, cookies, cards. In today’s ‘electronic world’, the human touch is looking like a candidate for the Endangered Species List! Touch someone’s heart today.
  2. Kind People Live Scroll Two: Choose to greet the day with love in your heart, and then give that love away in the form of heart-felt appreciation of another. Compliment someone. Offer deserved praise for a job well done, or a kind word spoken.
  3. Kind People Practice Compassion. Practice Rule Number Five. Honey, it’s not about you. When you are dealing with someone who is being the north end of a south bound horse, it’s about them. What can you say to make a difference? Sometimes, the simple act of          acknowledging that another person is having a difficult time frees them to remember who they really are.
  4. Kind People Kick Up An Attitude of Gratitude! Who has made a difference in your life? Find them. Call them. Write them a Thank You Note. Let them know the difference they made in you, and how much you appreciate them for doing so.
  5. Kind People Are Shocking! Walk into the local post office, police station, fire station, or sheriff’s office and thank the men and women there for their service to the community.

    Want to really shock them? Bring donuts and coffee.

  6. Kind People Are Engaging. Speak to the folks you encounter during the day. All those clerks, sales people,       service workers, teachers, janitors, garbage collectors, cleaning ladies, gardeners…..they all have names. Stop long enough to find out what their name is, and talk with them. Let them know they are seen, and heard, and worth seeing and being heard.
  7. Kind People Become Fairy God Mothers: Seriously, folks. Consider making a child’s wish come true. The Make-A-Wish Foundation gives you numerous levels and manners of giving a child the desires of their heart. Check it out for the ultimate feel-good experience.
  8. Kind People Become Selfish! Selfish is a good thing. It has nothing to do with being self-centered. It has everything to do with being a centered self, someone who has done the work, knows who they are, what they want, and when and where they are going. They are free to love, to laugh, to rejoice in being alive because they do not need the approval of others. They are Self-Actualized and Self-Directed. The Master Keys will do that for you, if you do the work. It’s the Ultimate Act of Kindness to You, and to everyone you know.
  9. Kind People are Polite: Please and Thank You are ALWAYS fashionable. So strut your ‘Miss Manners’ best and watch what happens! Guarantee you’ll love the results!
  10. Kind People are Generous: Mark J is the epitome of this one. This man gives away more skills than Carter has pills. Authentic kindness kills fear, stinginess, stress, anxiety, and trusts that the Law of Reaping and Sowing is true. They freely give what they have, knowing that the more they give, the more they will receive. It’s a beautiful thing.quipple691

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.

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.
