What a GREAT Week! The Wizard of OG introduces us to Scroll Three: I Persist Until I Succeed. Haanel reiterates this in Week 10: Only APPLIED Knowledge is Power. This flies in the face of the thousands of Universities who have engraved across their edifices “Knowledge is Power”…..another of the great lies which enslave the mind and cause men to live lives of quiet desperation.
How did Og Mandino become Wizardly? Og Mandino became Wizardly the same way Walt Disney, another great Wizard, became Wizardly, through the skill of being a Warrior.
In the face of massive opposition and repeated rejection, Walt Disney persisted.
In the face of haunting laughter of successful men dismissing his drawings, Walt Disney persisted.
In the face of poverty, living in his office on a diet of cold canned beans, Walt Disney persisted.
In the middle of the firestorm of WWII, surrounded by the horrors and violence of war, Walt Disney persisted.
He honed his skill. Walt did not start out with a clear vision or his passion and purpose. This is
where the Warrior in him developed. Before Mickey Mouse, there was a life of designing stationary, making program covers for movie theaters, and drawing ads for small businesses in his hometown of Kansas City. He continuously followed his bliss, experimented, and kept taking one small step at a time, probably totally unconscious of the Warrior Skills being perfected.
That’s the Prize you get from Persistence.
He moved to Hollywood. Mickey Mouse debuted. The rest, as they say, is history.
What does this have to do with The Master Keys, the Great MKMMA Adventure?
It’s a six month journey, and we are not quite half way through. We are integrating the patterns of success….the sit, the readings, the cards, the movie poster, the shapes… building tens of thousands of bridges across our respective Corpus Callosums [Sounds like something a WIZARD would say as he waves his wand, does it not?], learning to live at Mach speed, reaching escape velocity in our rocket ship which is taking us to the life of our Definite Major Purpose. We must grow both our Wizard and our Warrior to get to the space of Effortless Creation of the desires of our hearts.
We can do this.
We tell ourselves so 20 times each day. I [The I AM, that aspect of us that is connected with God] can be what I will to be.
Persistence…. It’s how the knowledge we are studying is applied. It’s how our Warrior grows into both a Samurai and a Ninja. It’s how we master Wizardry, bringing magic into our lives once more. It’s the Golden Key unlocking so much more than we can know.
