My Master Keys Experience

Aloha nui:) We’re at week 20 of our MKMMA na’au/soul-opening adventure and it has definitely been a continuous ride of wonder, releasing of old habits, death, re-birth, accepting new habits, expansion of self, lovingly embracing myself as I AM natures greatest miracle. Our daily blueprint-building ha’awina ho’oma’ama’a/lessons/exercises has become wonderful habits in my daily life…mahalo piha!!!

WEEK 23: FEAR: WAVING THE WHITE FLAG

 

As this course is winding down to the final stretch, Week 23 has been a week of more and more discovery. Every week that has passed and come to this point has made me more observant of myself. This week we are supposed to implement the Law of Least Effort into our daily lives. I liken this experience to that of being a farmer tilling the soil for the upcoming harvest in order to plant the fruit and flowers in their garden. I used to do this every year when I lived in Charlotte, N.C. I can remember never relishing that time of the year because it called for a lot of physical work. Even though by doing this, the results of my efforts produced beautiful flowers and fruits and vegetables that were eaten and some preserved in mason jars that could be eaten in the winter time. I just disliked doing the work because while I working, I could hear my friends playing outside and having a good time while I labored in the yard preparing the soil.

I used this scenario as an example because all through the course I’ve been tilling the soil (my mind) so I can reap the benefits of a good harvest ( the future me) and let the beauty of the flowers (harmony, happiness, wealth, good health) shine out for me to experience as well as being of benefit to others (being of service). Some things were happily discovered while other things were discovered after experiencing frustration, anxiety, and discomfort. In order to make this happen I had to till the soil and then take a rake (Masterkey Experience lessons, Flash Cards, The Sit, The Greatest Salesmen, Blueprint Builder, DMP, Positive Mental Attitude, Plan of Action, Mastermind Alliance) to separate the weeds, rocks, etc.. (former thoughts beliefs, actions, behaviour) and get rid of these things so I can enjoy a bountiful harvest.

Although I did this in N.C., I never did it with a happy knack! I can’t explain it throughly, but all I know is that the moment I embraced this Law of Least effort I felt this big rock disappear from my shoulders! Accepting people, circumstances, situations, was like the personification of a Large individual equipped with array of weapons, busting in a room crowded with  folks called fear, doubt, frustration, and forcefully telling them that they must vacate the premises immediately or else! I can see all these folks in the room angry and terrified. They put up a fierce fight, but in the end they surrendered and waved the white flag. It was like they were making their last stand just like the 300 Spartans did with the Persians.

I watched Joseph Campbell”s video about Mythology, and it put a lot of things in perspective for me and peeled off some more of that Fear cement. You see, ever since I was about 14yrs old, I always had an obsession with mythology. Now I can remember going to church from the age of about 7 or 8. Back then the only concept that was ever discussed in the household was man’s spiritual connection to Jesus Christ and God (which I still truly believe), but I was always felt that it was wrong of me to hold as much interested in Mythology as I held in my Sunday school teachings. Now I find out that what I was doing was doing was OK. Also was my fascination with Nature. I never realized how much I was already consciously connected to nature and it’s abundance. People from the city always made jokes about me being a “country guy”. For some reason I always loved the smell of grass, trees, the sound of birds, crickets and the smell of the morning dew. So too, I never realized until I listened to Joseph Campbell how much I was really fascinated with the Hero’s Journey. The character in a particular story went through all kinds of obstacles to finally realize their true self and purpose in life. I was always fascinated with the reluctant hero at their beginning, first undertaking the journey and the amazing transformation that occurred after they encountered the abyss and came out transformed to their higher self. So too was I fascinated at the person who had a dream and never gave up until  their dream became a reality. I now see that it was my true desire all the time since I was 14 to encounter that same experience.

Now SINCE I realize that this course is a commencement to the future me that I always yearned for, I can RELAX and enjoy achieving what I set out to do with a happy knack. I know that there will be obstacles to overcome, but now I welcome them for they now are my challenge. It’s not about, “what do I do now that the course is finished, or I didn’t accomplish everything I said I was going to do”. Now, it’s no more trying to fit in the world without, but following my heart, trusting myself, and going after my true purpose, and living a life with purpose. It just seems more like a fantastic adventure full of wonder and surprise , and LIFE

. It is now like me being 10yrs. old again thinking that anything I want to do is possible. So now I let Fear wave the white flag of defeat.

 

 

WEEK 22 A: THE EXPLORER

As I commence to write this week 22A blog, I see myself on this spaceship called the FUTURE ME EXPRESS. I commenced this journey almost 6 months ago. The planet that I launched from is called the Old Me. While I am on this ship, I get flashbacks on what it took to get a ticket to embark on this journey. In that moment of lift-off I kept  wondering, “what new worlds would I find?” Am I going to get lost in Space? What happens if I run out of fuel? Is this new place going to be an inhabitable place? What will I put in my reports? I remember all that energy my ship expended to escape the gravitational pull of the OLD ME planet. I was provided with certain tools and equipment only (masterkey experience lessons, greatest salesman, blueprint builder, DMP, flash cards, affirmations). Every week I was instructed to be an observer and log all this information in this computer that was just called MIND. I then asked, “well where’s my crew?” I was told that I would be making this journey alone, but I would only have contact with mission control (webcasts, certified guide, Masterkey alliances, workbook).

Now since I was out in this vast universe (abyss), and admiring the beauty that I was witnessing, I started experiencing weightlessness, and said to myself, “this is really cool!” I then realized that while I was on planet OLD ME, the gravity (OLD HABITS, THOUGHTS, BEHAVIOUR) made me expend more energy, kept me in a chaotic state of mind, and anxiety. I remembered many a time while I was on my old planet, I would always look up in the sky and wonder how it would feel if I could just take that journey. Some friends that I knew that I kept in contact with via holographic imagery said that they were where I was at one point in their life but decided not to be the reluctant hero anymore and eliminated that moment of hesitation and indecision and just went for it. Since they took the journey, we could only communicate through holographic imaging since they actually weren’t on he same planet I was still on anymore! They told me how happy they now were on this new planet. They also remarked about how all the things that tried to do and experience on that old planet now worked flawlessly on this new planet. I thought that this call was only reserved for people who were chosen to take this journey, but mission control told me that what I thought was only some misinformation that spread like wildfire throughout the planet. They informed me that this journey is available to anyone who chooses to accept this invitation!

Once I developed a level of consciousness after really understanding what this statement meant, I started to work hard to meet the requirements that would make me eligible to take this journey. It didn’t happen overnight because I didn’t realize how much baggage I had to leave behind in order to make this journey.

At this point in my adventurous space exploration, I’m noticing that my instruments are letting know that I’m almost there to planet FUTURE ME. BOY, am I really getting excited!

WEEK 22: USING THE TOOLS

It’s week 22 now, and it has truly been an unbelievable experience up to now filled with wonder, discovery, frustration, and humility. When I started this journey I was like a novice technician trying diagnose an electrical problem with an appliance without any real knowledge of 24 volt circuitry, and not having proper tools to use in order to fix the problem, along with a lot of sheer guesswork and ineptitude and zero experience. Now some folks will convince themselves that they can still pull this feat off by attempting to proceed to fix the appliance anyway even though they know  they don’t have the know-how, but their ego says “go ahead you can do it. You really don’t want to let anyone know that you can’t do it”. Well I think you know what usually happens next, disaster. Then you have some folks that are smart enough to realize that they don’t have the know-how nor the tools to complete such a task successfully and call for help.

Well when it came to making the decision to take this course I fall into the category of the second group of folks.  Sometimes it can be difficult to be brutally honest with yourself by admitting that there are some things that need changing, but every time you make an attempt it always winds back to square one, not knowing that a decision has already been made in the subconscious, even though consciously you’ve made a decision to change certain things you do. When I realized I couldn’t commit to change by myself I knew I needed some assistance. And Boy , did I get assistance!  I’ve started becoming that electrical technician who can properly diagnose any electrical problem in an appliance by (1) finding the cause, (2)having the right tools, (3) fixing the problem.

Having the right tools makes all the difference in the world. Now I have the ability and the tools to expand my comfort zone by embracing, FEAR, UNWORTHINESS, GUILT, ANGER, HURT FEELINGS, instead of avoiding them which is huge. By being the observer of yourself and how you react in any situation that will induce any of these what I call “pitfalls or stumbling blocks” and taking that intense energy and redirecting it into positive energy is huge. I have started implementing this practice into my daily life, and guess what? It actually works!

This morning started out disastrously,(or so I thought). It was payday today, and guess what? I didn’t get paid! What happened next was a sudden array of 2 distinct feelings: Fear, Anger. Now mind you this happened after my morning sit and reading of The Greatest Salesman. Fear eked in because I had bills that had to be paid, and I was angry because I was saying “why me?”. Now this lasted about 2 minutes because I realized that this could be a defining moment to excercise this practice of redirecting this negative energy into constructive energy. I actually calmed down, and remembered what it said in scroll #2 : I welcome obstacles for they are my challenge. After that I sent an email of encouragement for a speedy recovery to one of the guides in MKMMA who is ill at the time. I then continued my readings with more intensity and calmly said, ” everything’s going to be ok”. Sure enough, everything was resolved, and without going into a lot of detail, my fiance’ benefited from this experience by receiving money for herself from this so-called “disaster!” I realized that I was becoming that character Yosemite Sam who

was telling Bugs Bunny, “look rabbit, I don’t get upset anymore”, and has these 3 gentlemen hit, kick, and throw pies in his face without him getting upset anymore.

As each day comes and goes, I know I will get better and better through practice, and observing myself. I never would have thought that I would actually get excited whenever I see myself getting ready to go through what I call negative feelings and relishing how I can use them to my advantage! When I have the Masterkey Lessons, Blueprint Builder, The Greatest Salesman, Flashcards, DMP, my Affirmations, Masterminding with people in the Mastermind Alliance center along with masterminding with friends, all these are powerful tools that I have at my disposal. I am now becoming that technician.

 

WEEK 21: BEING IN COMMAND

Week 21 has been a week of understanding the great power that we all possess and learning how to use that power at anytime we wish. In the blueprint builder that I read every morning, in the 5th paragraph there’s a sentence that says: I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. As I have traversed through this course I have realized how powerful that statement that I’ve been reading for 5 months is. On one particular occasion while was doing my sit, I was experiencing a nervous spasm that I had in one of my shoulders. Through sheer concentration,  I made the spasm go away while I was doing my sit! I was fascinated by this experience because it showed me that I have command over my body! Before this incident, I would usually have to just ride the spasm out until it stopped. I’m in the process right now of taking the 5 deadly habits ( Fear, Unworthiness, Guilt, Anger, Hurt Feelings) and using these things as tools to my advantage! Wow! Talk about taking your weaknesses and turning them into your strengths! Using these negative attributes as a motivational tool is awesome. I know it works because I had no choice but to use this method when I started out playing Guitar.

When I first started playing, I started out playing the bass guitar. It seemed like it was the instrument that I was supposed to play. Everyone else agreed to that fact also. But just seemed that there was always a guitar lying around when I visited my friends. I was inexplicably drawn to that instrument. When I switched to guitar a lot of people were shocked. Not only that, I’m left-handed but I play right-handed. All I heard was, ” You made a big mistake by switching by over to guitar”, or ” you’ll never be any good”. I used all these statements as motivational tools. Everytime I would get discouraged when it came to a learning curve, I just thought of all those disparaging remarks and just buckled down and intensified my efforts. What I didn’t realize I was doing was using Fear, Unworthiness, Anger, Hurt Feelings, Guilt, as tools to propel me to My Chief Aim which was being a Guitar Player. I now realize that I refused to believe that any of these things had any merit in them. As far I was concerned, they were all things that didn’t exist.

Now since I accomplished that feat, I get even more excited because I know that I possess a Universal Power at my command anytime I which to use it. In other words: My Wish Is MY COMMAND. Anytime I feel any negative bias I think of the monkey with his hand in the jar holding a banana and refusing to let it go thus keeping his hand in the jar. Every day is a day of unfolding mysteries and letting go of anything that I don’t need. As I continue this process of chipping away the cement, I’m learning how to do it happily with excitement and wonder. Looking at all of us as being as one on this planet enforces the reason why serving others is huge. I will always be looking at the world within instead of the world without.

 

 

WEEK 20: RECOGNITION

WEEK 20 is the week of demarcation. It is this point in this journey where all of the practice and study moves from preparation into the application of answering the call to Greatness. It is where the realization of all the hard work that has been done starts to take flight towards the true goal: the new person with a ” new” life.

It is where the “old self” truly dies, and the transformation, transcendence begins. Reading the

obituaries, and being Ok with thinking about that word called Death, and truly feeling reborn again is definitely a serious concept that knocks fear right out the box. I still find in myself “remnants” of my old self still lingering. If I just wanted to overcome these “remnants”, then I guess I could live with that realization but now, I’m in the business of totally eliminating anything that is of no constructive use to me.

I still find myself during certain periods of the day ,drifting away from keeping the main thing, the main thing. Things like , keeping my DMP in my head all the time AND FEELING ESTACTIC about it. Watched way too much tv for a couple of days. Even though I was still doing what I should be doing so far as being faithful to my everyday practices, I just felt that what I was doing wasn’t enough. It feels like when what I call, “getting out-of-pocket” for any extended length of time happens, a gong goes off in my head saying “okay that’s enough, let’s get back to the real matters at hand”. 

It just seems that way because now that I have so much more awareness, concentration, and attention and confidence, I actually feel my old self still resisting in certain ways: aka being  aware of the true moments of recognizing when I’m falling into the trap of courting idleness, and familiarity.  It manifest itself in a fleeting thought: Oh, I just spent an hour and a half of intense practice and study. “OK, I’ll chill out for a couple of hours and resume. I got this now. I know the routine.” BAM! Wrong thinking! The 2 serious questions ( 1. What am I pretending not to know? 2. What would the person I want to become do next?) should be pinging back and forth in my head every minute, every hour, every day. Since my conscious mind is the “watchman and guardian” of my subconscious mind, I don’t have the luxury of letting my guard down. I am still in the process of reaching that level of unconscious competency. I realize that my old self is looking for that comfort zone, because to tell you the truth, I know that being “uncomfortable” is just a precursor to actual growth. Every time I experience this feeling now I celebrate because I know I’m on the right path. Thank god I now know that I cannot try to out smart any of the Universal Laws because I know that they are immutable.

In The Masterkey Lesson 20:8, it says ” When you begin to perceive that the essence of the Universal is within yourself–is you–you begin to do things: you begin to feel your power: it is the fuel which fires the imagination: which lights the torch of inspiration: which gives vitality to thought: which enables you to connect with all invisible forces of the Universe. It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully. I highlighted this statement, because if I’m not jumping out of my shoes with excitement, enthusiasm, awe and wonder, that this power is something we already possess, and all we have to do is recognize it, and use it, then I think I need my head examined, plus I’m wasting my time being in this course, and spouting out a lot of fluff.

Sometimes just thinking about creating a new life overwhelms me, not in a negative way, but, in a way of amazement. The fact that I possess the courage to really do this and not think about doing this, is really something that I marvel at more and more with each passing day. Now I play in my music ministry in my church. There’s a particular song that we play to close out one of our services. A couple of sentences in the song ring out to me: WE ARE ONE, WE ARE ONE, WE ARE ONE IN THE SPIRIT, WE ARE ONE. Now I can’t tell you how many times we’ve played that song, and that one statement just kept flying over my head until I read Part 20 in The Masterkey Lessons.

God is Spirit                                                                                                              Spirit is the Creative Principle of the Universe.                                                Man is made in the image and likeness of God.                                                Man is therefore a spiritual being.                                                                      The only activity which spirit possesses is the power to think                      Thinking is therefore a creative process .

20:2  You may have all the wealth in Christendom, but unless you recognize it and make use of it, it will have no value; so with your spiritual wealth; unless you recognize it and use it, it will have no value. The one and only condition of spiritual power is use or recognition.

In The Masterkey-Part 4 it says,

Thought is energy and energy is power, and it is because all the religions, sciences and philosophes with which the world has heretofore been familiar have been based upon the manifestation of this energy instead of the energy itself, that the world has been limited to effects, while causes have been ignored of misunderstood.

On this one particular day, my Self- Control was sorely tested while I was in church. The conversation about Faith turned into a muddled debate about what it really meant to have Faith in all aspects of your life, all of the ingredients and the processes one must go through to really possess strong faith. Thank God that I had to return to my duties in the music ministry! When I got home, I must have thought about that conversation for a couple of days. But what that incident did for me was make me recognize how far I’m ahead in my thinking and recognizing the true power that I, and that person ( unfortunately they don’t recognize their true power) and everybody truly possess. The big question is: WILL THEY EVER DISCOVER IT? This is why I am so enamored with this course, because this course is not taught anywhere else but here. YEAH MKMMA!!

Experience is comparable to fashion;                                                                 an action that proved successful today may be                                                 unworkable and impractical tomorrow                                                         Only principles endure

I know that my brain is cooking to the point of seeing steam exiting for my ears like Uncle Fester ( you remember, TheAddams Family) ha. ha. ha….. I have to keep cranking up the intensity, concentration, and attention.

Og Mandino; Scroll 4:

“I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I strain my potential until it cries for mercy ( my old self is screaming for mercy right now, but to no avail)”. The facts don’t lie, and It’s truly made me a believer in the power, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipresent nature of God ( Universal Presence) that’s all in the ether that surrounds us and that is in each and every one of us whether we know it or not.

 

 

WEEK 19: CONNECTING THE DOTS…..

This week has been presenting itself with all kinds of moments of connectivity for me. I found myself reflecting back when I was in elementary school. For instance, when I would get my report card, how I was graded on how I absorbed and carried out all the things that were taught to me, my attendance, my attentiveness towards the teacher while she was teaching, and how I interacted with my fellow classmates. Since we are taught to excel in our studies and make sure when we take a test, our success is predicated on us not submitting too many wrong answers. Failure is unacceptable. Get good grades and you’ll be successful in life. All through our lives we live by this doctrine and conform to these concepts. They are inforced by our parents ( even though they have good intentions), peer pressure, and society. We start adapting ourselves to be like everyone else: go with the Law of averages, go with the flow. I might not have the exact words quoted here but, Earl Nightingale said: Conformity is one of the biggest reasons why a lot people never live out their dreams. That thing that I would always see on report card: HOW  I got along with my classmates never resonated that much until now. Success actually hinges on your willingness to serve others. Now that’s one thing that I came to an understanding with, and connected those dots.

This course has made me so much aware of many things, that it’s starting to feel uncanny. I was searching for something on Netflix, and Lo and behold I found this show called Inn Saei: The Power of Intuition. Now what this program talks about is exactly what we are learning and implementing, with one exception: the tools that we have at our disposal and how to actually use them are superior to anything else I’ve seen! More and More professors, and scientist are talking about the small percentage of our brain we actually use! What is being noticed now is how society has steered people to use only 2% of our brain (left side) which is our conscious part: logic, facts, knowledge of only the things that we’ve been taught. The other part of our brain, the subconscious, (right side) comprises, get this, a whopping 98% of our brain. This part of the brain comprises the imagination, creativity, awareness of nature, emotion, what’s around us, intuition. These are all the things that are of a divine spiritual nature. They say that this why people continue to do the same things and keep getting the same results. Remember I didn’t say this from a theoretical conclusion that I came up with, this is scientific fact!  I feel privileged to be one of the few that get it. It is also was said that the one that realizes, and learns to possess these qualities has a distinct advantage over controlling what they want out of life as opposed to the other percentage of the people who never come to this realization.

I have recordings on a topic called, Your Wish is Your Command, by Kevin Trudeau. Since I am MKMMA student, I made another connection with his recordings and this course: I am the Genie of Aladdin’s Lamp. I started listening to these recordings 3 yrs ago, along with think and grow rich. What I started to see was the uncanny connection all 3 have in common. MKMMA is the glue because it shows the daily process that must be applied in order to get a true understanding of the 2 afore-mentioned. The light bulb immediately came on when I read in Think and Grow Rich, you must master all the virtues that one is required to master. Each one is not effective without the other.  Now, I take the palm of my hand and slap it on my forehead and marvel at how I’m really starting to connect the dots. It might seem like I might be one of those folks that might be coerced into saying these things, and being biased because I’m in this fantastic course because it seems like I’m saying all the right things, or yeah he’s saying this because he wants to show that he’s a committed trooper, but this real and from the heart. You know how it is when you witness something fantastic and you just can’t keep your mouth closed? Well this is it.

Now for my last connection that I made. One of our assignments was to watch a movie of our own choice, and point out the habits that are ingredients for success: DMP (Definite Major Purpose), PMA (Positive Mental

attitude) POA (Plan of Action), MMA (Mastermind Alliance). I didn’t have a clue at first as to what I was going to watch. Let’s talk about the Superbowl for a moment. Now my team, aka: The Giants weren’t in this years final game, so I was asked if I was going to watch the Superbowl. I said that I would, so I started watching the game and couldn’t believe how the Patriots were being outplayed in the first half. Even though I’m not a Tom Brady fan (because they always crush the competition in the AFC east division), I had grown to sense of admiration and respect for what Tom went through on his way to becoming the great Quarterback that he is (did I really say that?). After that 1st half I was almost convinced that the Patriots had no chance. But I kept saying to myself, ” they are the AFC champions. They didn’t get this far to fail”. Well as we all know now, the rest is history. That game seemed like a microcosm of what kind of journey that I’m on. It put on display all the unseen forces that come into play that are at anybody’s fingertips if they have the courage to realize the power they have, the courage to use it, and claiming it. So I know that I’ll always be connecting the dots…..

Week 17 – The Franklin Makeover, Living Knowledge Into Wisdom.

This is a must read blog to check out!

Edina - Master Key

Practical wisdom “is the ability to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason.”

Back in the 90’s a first grade teacher shared something with me that until that time I had not considered.  She was going to be my daughter’s first grade teacher.  I asked her how I could help her in the classroom.  She surprised me when she told me she wanted me to help her young spanish-speaking children learn the words for things like swing, tree, sidewalk, playground, spoon, fork, plate, chair …

She explained to me that it was more difficult for her to teach them how to read words that they didn’t speak.  This would lighten the load on her, big time.

Most of these children were the children of migrant workers who worked from sun-up to sun-down on the surrounding area’s big farms.  Their parents often had one to two…

Week 18: DISCOVERING THE TRUTH

Week 18 has been a week of reflection and more discovery about me. For every positive discovery celebrated with joy and happiness, there is a negative aspect that’s discovered that needs to be eliminated. The biggest DIFFERENCE in how I handle a negative aspect is that I’ve learned to celebrate identifying something negative by letting it die and being happy at the forthright honestly to accept it.  With growth comes pain sometimes but I tell myself that it is the price I must pay now for success instead of paying the price of failure later. The new me that is evolving is not being accepted by some because that person looks like a stranger to them, although some people see the new me as a bright beacon of light. This was THE one fear that I constantly thought about before I took this course. But since that fear has been eliminated, I continue my climb into the unknown with a sense of adventure. Sometimes I struggle with accepting this thought, but then I look at it as an intriguing movie that I’m watching that has me glued to screen saying to myself, “I know that this individual is the star of the movie, so I know in the end he’ll come out of it being the victor. I just want to see how he’s going to do it”.

I never gave myself enough credit for things I did right. It was always me looking at all the things I did wrong. I was harder on myself than anyone else. I was always moving the Goal Post ( every achievement that I accomplished was never met with any type of satisfaction, or happiness). I hammered in this way of thinking for years. Now I could go on into giving you examples, but they would of course be too numerous to really write about as I am just explaining about a negative habit that I possessed. Then 2 crucial questions were presented to me 1 each week consecutively: What am I pretending not to know? What would the person I want to become Do next?  When the correct answer was revealed to us regarding the 1st question, the answer was, Aladdin’s Lamp. That it already exists in us: everything we have is first a thought: Thought is a wish: The perfect plan already exists. We just have to learn how to rub it the right way. I immediately started thinking about everything I said in my DMP, Press Release, Dream Board, even my previous blogs.  I reviewed each and every one and realized that I had (duh…) already started implementing the right thoughts, and that word called HAPPINESS was prevalent throughout everything that I wrote about. DID THE HARD WORK FOR 4 MONTHS and didn’t realize the impact that it was actually having on me! I KEPT MOVING THE GOAL POSTS! My belief was not as strong as it should have been, I was still carrying around stuff I needed to let go. It was then that I realized that when I’m happy, I’m at my best in anything I do. Being in compliance with the 7 laws of the mind and the Laws of nature, Love, are just some of the

critical components to the acquisition of the true power that we have access to already. I WASN’T GIVING MYSELF ENOUGH CREDIT for the new discoveries that I was encountering, the changes that were being made in my thinking and habits. Without realizing this fact, I probably would still have been mired in the continuance of my erroneous thinking (moving the goal posts).

After the realization of all these things that I have stated, the future me is becoming more recognizable. The second question: What would the person I want to become do next? Now I look at the future me as a powerful entity that exudes strength, courage, abundance, love, faith, belief, that will not tolerate mediocrity. No “woe is me syndrome”. As long as I’m grateful for each day, no matter if it was good or bad, I know eventually I WILL WIN. I always make it a habit of saying to myself, “I am Natures Greatest Miracle”. And that IS the TRUTH.

I love Nature because of all the Abundance that is seen in it. All the abundance that we are privy to, because we are part of it.

 

WEEK 17A: TRANSITION OF THOUGHT

Week 17 has been a transitory week of thoughts and feelings. Giving myself permission to have access to power and happiness, letting the old me die and be reborn into the future me, and this question which is like coming up with the correct answer to the riddle that the Sphinx (Geek Mythology) asked its unfortunate contestants, “what am I pretending not to know?” I liken my experience up to now as the first 3 1/2 weeks as the regular season of any particular sport where teams position themselves to make the playoffs (all of the exercises and requirements). Now at this juncture of the course, it’s the playoffs. I couldn’t have gotten this far without being faithful to the exercises which I now look at as new habits, plus the tools that I learned to implement everyday to effect change. Each week that I complete is like a step further to the championship game. The closer I get, the more I feel is at stake. The crowd (the divine consciousness that is waiting to possess me) is frantically cheering me on to win this one game and continue my ascent to the championship round. Of course there’s some folks that are in the stands (my old self) who are not rooting for me, but their shouts are being drowned out by the folks that are rooting for me.

Great situation to be in. What’s at stake? I get to be the hero (the future me), take the trophy home and put it on my shelf and forever admire an accomplishment that nobody can take from me. The flip side to this scenario is the closer I get and because of the enormity of the moment I start getting out of myself and start to do things I normally wouldn’t do (wondering how and when this transition is going to take place). I forgot how to enjoy what I’m doing, to be thankful to have this opportunity, let the game come to me, relax, everything will work its way out because I know I’m the better opponent. “Why should the miracle which produced me end with my birth? Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today?” I found out that in anything you embark on you can never force the issue. I cannot be like the child who plants a seed and every 15 minutes disturbs the soil to see if the plant has taken root and starts to grow. I’m a musician and network marketer, and I have noticed how I have embarked on learning something new, and how it never came to fruition by forcing the issue. If I let the thought flow through my mind, insight takes over and I accomplish what it was I was trying to accomplish.

I realize there’s nothing that I have to change, but just continue to get better at what I do and always have humility in my heart and celebrate every new discovery. The flash index cards, noticing different virtues, observing and documenting acts of kindness that I perform or witness, and enjoying doing it is of GREAT VALUE. I laugh at how I must look to some people sometimes. You remember the movie The Ten Commandments right? Picture me being Moses (Charlton Heston) coming down from the mountaintop after he encountered God and the expression he had on his face. I feel myself walking around with that look (ha,,ha,,ha).

There is plenty of uncertainty abound as I move forward, but I’m the star of this movie, and you know the star of the movie always comes out on top. I’m finding more people to Mastermind with. I never realized how much I missed doing this, because I used to do it all time a long time ago. I just didn’t realize that I was creating a Mastermind Alliance at the time. Transition. Practice, Practice, Practice.
