Master Key week 17

Week 17 has not disappointed me in any way shape or form. I keep waiting for the challenges to get mundane, yet with every task, meditation an reading I discover more about me. When this discovery is made, I light up on the  inside and there is a sense of lightness and euphoria within myself. I now understand that there is a deep fundamental change going on within me. I truly trust and give myself permission for the change to take place.

I”M NO LONGER FIGHTING IT!!!!!!!

I have spent the week organizing my life and business in a way that I have never done before. I’m throwing away things that don’t serve me and putting things in there right place so that, I can easily access them when I need to. Yeah, you might say like in the Geoco Commercial “Everyone Knows That” but this process is a change from the old way of doing things. It’s just different for me, it’s clearing my mind of clutter. I can focus with much greater clarity on the task at hand. In reading the GSW Scroll IV this week, a sentence really stood out for me. “I concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment and my actions help me forget all else”  My word for this week was Discipline, for the Franklin Makeover this was something I felt I needed to work on the most.  Reading the sentence in the GSW really struck a cord with me. I realized that I can not have discipline unless I have concentration!!!! My conscious mind was always going in multiple directions, if you were to see my desk, you could see that it was all over the place with clutter. This is a case where my world without, was a direct reflection of my world within. OOHHH IS MY WIFE HAPPY)))

This has been an outstanding week for me. I look forward to the new week to come.

Master Key Week 16

Week 16 with the Master Key Program has been full of joy and Kindness. We were given a  task to observe and do two acts of Kindness anonymously and report it on our community webs site. When I go in I can see that there are  thousands of RAK “Random Act’s of Kindness being done everyday. I can tell you that this task has really put me deeper into the flow of kindness. It’s awesome!!!!!

I have been doing this program now for sixteen weeks, when I started reading the lesson I really struggled with what I was reading. I had to read things over and over to get what was being said and it would take the whole week for me to get about 50% of what was being taught. Luckily the classes on Sunday would go over the current weeks lesson and give clarity to missing peaces.  I’m really thankful for the Sunday class.

Now I read and I pretty much understand the information with the first read. This is not because I’m reading better or that I understand how  the author writes. It’s because I have been given the gift of greater understanding about myself through all the lessons in this program.

I look forward to the new cycle of sevens in my life. I’m prepared for all the storms of life because I know that I am everything I need to be.

Master Key Week 15

This week has been another growing week. I learned that the laws with we live are designed solely for our advantage. I have the power to place my self in harmony with the these laws to achieve the desired effect I’m looking for in my life. If I want my life to be what it has been for the past 40 plus years then all I need to do is hold onto the stuff I have been thinking feeling acting upon on. I cannot obtain what I want if I tenaciously cling to what I have. I also now know that I need to be aware very aware of the words I choose the actions I take for the changes I want. I must be very clear to a laser focus on the action I want to take in my life. So I’m rewriting parts of my DMP to reflect the desired effect I want.

When I read this 16-26 I was blown away it really stuck a cord with me.

These are self-evident facts, but the all-important thruth that a thought containing principle is vital and therefore contains life and consequently takes root, and eventually but surely and certainly displaces the negative thoughts, which by there very nature can contain no vitality, is one which seems to have been overlooked.

I had to read that over and over to make it sink in and fully realize what was being said here. I even look up the word Principle to make sure I was understanding this correctly. This opens it all up for me.

Master Key Week 13 & 14

Well 2013 holiday season has come and gone. It was a great holiday season on one hand and on the other hand one of the most challenging I can remember in some time. The time spent with family and friends was full of love and laughter. However the time spent in my head was a challenge. The challenge I was going through I would not change for the world. I grew allot as a person and found my stride again with what I’m doing with the Master Key Program.

Week 13 represented the half way point with this course, the changes that have taken place over the past few weeks have been amazing. I now complete task that I start, I observe and listen better, my attitude is 99% positive everyday, my spiritual connection is greater, and I see the world within with much more understanding then the world without.

Week 14 was kind of an odd week, there was no class  and we only had to read and watch a movie. It felt a bit like being back in school again. The teacher would always ask for you to do work over the holidays to keep your mind sharp so that when you came back to school it would be easier for you to start back up. I don’t know about anyone else but when I was in school I wanted nothing to do with school during the holidays. So the results were exactly what the teacher said. This time for me it is different I’m here in this course for me, I signed up and agreed to do the work. So I’m ready for week 15 to come and can’t wait for the changes that follow.

I mentioned a movie we had to watch during week 14. We had a choice of Cool Runnings, Rudy, Door to Door, and October Sky. I have seen them all except for Door to Door, I was not able to find Door to Door without ordering a copy of it on Amazon. When I saw the Movie Trailer I knew that I wanted to watch it so when it comes in the mail I will watch it then. So my wife and I settled on Cool Runnings she had not seen it. I told her that it is a funny movie along with being based on a true story.

My instructions while watching the move was to observe Persistence happening. I will write a list of times I observed persisting was going on. I would like to add though I did notice that there was not just one character that had to persist or over come obstacles to get what they wanted. Each character had there own personal challenges.

1) The main character wanted to get to olympics and had an accident during his qualifying run that was not his fault, so he did not make it into the summer Olympics like his father did prior Olympics. He pleaded with the government Olympic official to let him try out again. The official said no so he had to find a different way into the Olympics other then having to wait 4 years for the next Summer Olympics. In the meeting he saw a picture of his father standing with fellow Olympian Bobsledder.

2) He then had to convince his child hood friend to be apart of the 4 man Bobsled team. Oh did I mention these guys are from Jamaica.

3) Then he had to convince the gentlemen that was in the picture to teach them how to be Bobsledders. This gentlemen was a broken man. He had his Gold Medals taken away for cheating.  The want to be Olympian had to come back again and again for sometime to convince the broken man to join him on this journey. The coach asked him do you give up and he said “NO”!!!!!!!!!

4) The government would not fund them to be a Jamaican Bobsled Team, so they had to raise the money for themselves to go.

5) When they got to the try outs the coach had to plead with his former USA team mates to get an old practice sled to use.

6) They persisted through all the things that were trying to stop them from being a Jamaican Bobsled Team, at the end they were accepted by there peers as an equal to all other teams.

Great Movie.

Happy 2014.
