Master Key Weeks 22-22A

For the past two weeks I have not had more then an hour sleep at a time. I sleep for an hour then I’m awake for an hour struggling to get back to sleep, the pattern has kept repeating over and over for the past two weeks. It’s wearing me out….. I have fallen behind with all my readings and task that I have set out to achieve. This is the reason why this post is two weeks late and is combined into two weeks of blogs.

I finally decided that I would have my quiet day this last Saturday.I started Friday night and finished it Sunday Morning. My objective was to try and find out what was going on with me. I felt that I was making the progress with my self discovery. I felt great confident, secure and my thoughts were clear.  Then all of sudden it seem to just stop!!!!!!! What was going on? I needed to get back on track with my life purpose.

So I decided to start over. I  re-wrote my DMP change things around and removed a few things. Updated my index cards. Organized my folders cleared out all the clutter. In the process it all hit me, what I had been doing for the past two weeks. I was living in the grey area of life again. Not seeing things as black and white as they are. Not having True Health and Autonomy in my life. I was going through the motions, reading sometimes, sitting quiet only when it was convenient,  most of all I did not do anything with emotion behind it.  I had to stop it all and start over, I imagine that the Master Key will be part of my life from now on and that I will be starting over all the time. I will be just getting better every time that I do start over. It’s like an alcoholic, will say once you get a head full of AA you can never forget it unless you drink yourself do death. I know have a head full of MK and I have but no choice to learn more and be better observer in life then I was before today. Today I have started over with reading and reset my emotions and have given myself permission to be human and move on.

Thank You MK

Master Key Week 21

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.

Master Key Week 20

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.

Master Key Week 19

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.

Master Key Week 18

 

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.

Master Key Week 17A HJ

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?2014-02-01 13.53.38

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.

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.
