21 weeks down 5 more to go. When I started this course I had to make a commitment for six months, every Sunday for 2 hours and work everyday on the lessons. It seemed to be a huge time commitment. I asked for permission from my family and my wife if it was okay for me to take up our Sundays? She agreed with some negotiating on my part. I’m making this point because I want you the reader to understand that this was a big commitment of time. At first it seemed that it would take away from me and my family, today feeling of loss I thought I was going to have to go through with giving up so much time has changed.Now, to a feeling of loss that the course is ending. I know that the Master Key will be apart of my life for the rest of my life. It has set me on a path that has lead to amazing miracles and adventures.
I CAN”T WAIT TO SEE WHATS TO COME. “oh wait I already know whats to come”LOL If you have been through the course you understand the joke.
The lessons of this week has strengthen my connection to the world within. I have a life purpose and when I live my lives purpose in tune with my Dharma things get easier. I have to stay out of my own way (My Mind) and follow my heart to let the world within do the work. Outwardly I live my life in service to my highest good.
Week 20 has not disappointed me in any-way. I feel that I have a real grasp and understanding of what I have been learning and doing for the past 20 weeks.
“It all just jelled this week” I feel that I have to give thanks to my wonderful wife for helping and discussing week 20 with me. She really helps me to understand at a much deeper level. “Thank you my love”
There are so many things to talk about with week 20 lessons, I will pick out a few.
20-4 Thinking is the true business of life, power is the result. You are at all times dealing with the magic power of thought and consciousness. What results can you expect so long as you remain oblivious to the power which has been placed within you control?
I had to read this several times before I got it and then I had a uhaa moment. “What am I pretending not to Know” I know about the “Power” so I can no longer think without the feeling behind it, as I did before and be okay with the mediocre results.
20-14 To become inspired means to get out of the beaten path, out of the rut., because extraordinary results require extraordinary means.
This meant to me in not so many words to get out of my own way. Today though I can not just say that simple phrase with out a deeper meaning. I want extraordinary results for my life, so getting out of my own way was not enough. I had to go to extraordinary means to make changes in my life in order to get the results I want, an deserve.
“I could not half ass it anymore.”
20-19 Power implies service; inspiration implies power; to understand and supply the method of inspiration is to become a superman.
When I read this I personally got excited because the reference to superman. I love Superman he has been a part of my life. People tease me about my name and ask if I’m wearing a big red S under my clothes? I usually reply NO with a smile. The above sentence in 20-19 has me re-thinking how I will respond to that question in the future. We all new that Superman had super powers but that was only half of what he did. Thinking back to all the movies or comic books I can only can remember the good he did. He never spoke bad or negative about anything or anyone. He only had positive thoughts about himself and the world. He always seemed to know what the results would be. I guess what I’m saying is, I having the power in service and the inspiration I am to like my Idol Superman. I now have a big red S on my chest which stands for SPIRIT.
This has been a Interesting week. I have not slept more then 2 hours a night for the past ten days. I have never experienced this before for such a long period of time. My head feels like it’s in a fog for the past few days. I’m not sure whats going on, I have meditated a few times about what is keeping me from falling into a deep sleep but nothing has come to me. This Sunday I will restart everything I have been doing with the Master Key and see if I can reset myself. I have been so out of it I can not concentrate for a extended period of time.
I need some sleep.
Week 18 is a off week with no class on Sunday. We are being taught to think more for our selfs, not to really on the classes each week in order to learn. Being weened from our teachers as the course come to a conclusion in the coming months. In order for me to grow I must take the tools and principles I have been shown and apply them to my life. What differentiates me from most others is my principles and my connection to the Universal Mind.
Understanding this and knowing what the laws of attraction are I can use these tools to achieve most anything as long they are in line with the laws. I have been reading my DPM 3 times a day ( almost every day) for 4 months. I also have been adding and editing it almost very week. I have experienced a few goals come to life in this practice. With the tools and teaching I know that all will come to life in time I just need to keep doing the work I have started.
Another week of choices and change,
This week is about the Heroes Journey, when I started this program I was being called to take the HJ. 17 weeks later I find myself having to make another choice. Do I keep going and fully accept the journey and finish the journey or do I quit, and go back to the same safe life I was living before?
I decided to continue with the HJ. It was suggested that I write down all the old thinking, and old habits that no longer serve me. Then, take that stuff written down and burn it. Have a funeral for my old self, let that person pass and let the new come alive within you.
I did this ceremony last week, at the beach in Northern California. My wife and I drove to the beach, it was raining the whole way. When we arrived it stopped and the skies cleared. It was a beautiful cool day in Point Reyes. We were hoping to see some Grey Whales running but we did not. We made a small fire on the beach and we sat there reading my obituary. I proceeded with a eulogy, for the old me, It went something like this. The old me was a strong loving hard working person.I knew that he was always willing to help and give of his time and energy, an I loved him for that. What I did not know about him was that he gave to much, he did not have balance in his life, he put other peoples needs in front of his own. He always needed approval from others and lacked self confidence, even though he knew he could do anything, his mind chatter always put doubts in his head. When I was talking about him it made me sad to think of him in this way. I took the paper balled it up tightly and placed it in the fire, I had a sense of joy for him watching it burn. I know that I am growing into the person that you have always been, but just did not see it. Today, I see… I am excited for me to take on the next leg of the HJ. After the ceremony I was gathering our things, and I looked up, and on the wall there was this smiley face that was carved into the sandy bank. I took a picture of it, so I could be reminded of this day, whenever I might miss my old friend.
Smiley Face Marks The Spot.
