Week 22 – Spiritual seeds

Most of us that are involved with Network Marketing are also involve in the wellness revolution. When new contacts or prospects are introduce to the range of wellness products available and the benefits to their health a lot of focus are placed on the detoxification of their bodies. Trying to eliminate the poisonous and waste matter that accumulated in their bodies because of their life style, BUT not much are done about the effects that their way of thinking causes.

In this weeks Lesson of the Master Key System by Haanel we found “that thoughts are spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a tendency to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently not to our liking. The various forms of inflammation, paralysis, nervousness and diseased conditions generally, are the manifestation of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred and similar thought.”

We realized that ‘the life processes are carried on by two distinct methods; first, the taking up and making use of nutritive material necessary for constructing cells; second, breaking down and excreting the waste material. All life is based upon these constructive and destructive activities, and as food, water and air are the only requisites necessary for the construction of cells, it would seem that the problem of prolonging life indefinitely would not be a very difficult one.”

But “However strange it may seem, it is the second or destructive activity that is, with rare exception, the cause of all disease. The waste material accumulates and saturates the tissues, which causes auto-intoxication. This may be partial or general. In the first case the disturbance will be local; in the second place it will affect the whole system.

The whole system is affected because we have “millions of repair cells that are all intelligent and respond to our thought, they are often paralyzed and rendered impotent by our thoughts of fear, doubt, and anxiety. They are like an army of workmen, ready to start an important piece of work, but every time they get started on the undertaking a strike is called, or plans changed, until they finally get discouraged and give up.

The problem, then, before us in the healing of disease is to increase the inflow and distribution of vital energy throughout the system, and this can only be done by eliminating thoughts of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred, and every other destructive thought, which tend to tear down and destroy the nerves and glands which control the excretion and elimination of poisonous and waste matter.

This is why “the way to health is founded on the law of vibration, which is the basis of all science, and this law is brought into operation by the mind, the “world within.” It is a matter of individual effort and practice. Our world of power is within; if we are wise we shall not waste time and effort in trying to deal with effects as we find them in the “world without,” which is only an external, a reflection.

Week 21 – You fix the man and the world is fixed

I love learning through stories. This one most of us has heard or has told it ourselves.

There once was a very busy father looking after his five year old son at home. The father had some very important work to do and did not have time to keep his young son busy while it was raining outside. So he tried some things to keep the son occupied but it did not last long and the son was back looking for the attention of the father.

So as a last resort the father found a picture of the world in a magazine and decided to tear it into small peaces to create a puzzle for his son to put together. The father thought that this will keep him busy for the rest of the day and promised the son that once the world is fixed they will go and play.

Well within a few minutes the son was back smiling waiting for his father to go and play. The father was shocked and with disbelief followed his son to the living room glass table and was amazed to find the picture of the world was perfectly put together.

The father could not belief or comprehend what has taken place. There was no way his son of five could finish the puzzle by himself so quickly. The father sat down and asked his son how he did it. “Daddy” his son replied “ please lie down next to me on the carpet.” So reluctantly the father did as he was asked. As soon as he looked up from under the glass table there was a picture of a man face on the back of the picture of the world. The son said “You fix the man and the world is fixed.” The wisdom that the son stumbled on that day has changed the life of the father as well as many others.

So how is this related to my journey in week 21 of the MKMMA Course? It relates to the two questions that was asked in the movie I am by Tom Shadyac that I watched in week 19. The questions that are asked are;

What’s wrong with our world? What can we do about it?”

The answers that Tom Shadyac found is shared with us in his life changing documentary and I attach a preview thereof below and recommend it to everyone.

Let us get back to the story. To fix the world you need to fix the man! What a profound retaliation. I have been trying to fix the world or the people around me, not realizing that I need to fix me and the rest will take care of itself. One of the aspects that needs to be expand when working on yourself is your self created comfort zone. The thoughts and emotions that keeps you from achieving your desires/dreams.

As part of week 21 Markj and his team asked us to Mastermind and post our comments on “How can we use fear, Hurt Feelings, Anger, Guilty and Unworthiness to expand our comfort zone.”

Wow they are tools? They can be gifts in disguise? Something to think about.

I always thought that I was responsible for other peoples feelings and to ensure that I do not hurt them in any way. Well how wrong could I have been. 

What if you knew the only person’s feelings you were responsible for were your own? What would you do? How would you act? How would you feel?

This is a game changer for me and I trust for you to!

Week 20 – The Breath of God

Imagine you have been walking around on this planet ignorant of you Power. The Power that has been given to you the moment you were born and yours to use for the creation of miracles. The Power that has been laying dormant within you because you have been conformed to be part of 95% of the people on this planet.

So what is this Power you may ask that I am talking about. Well Andrew Carnegie calls it the Power of Mind!

IMG_0754

In part four of lesson 20 of The Master Key System Haanel says the following;

4. Thinking is the true business of life, power is the result. You are at all times dealing with the magical power of thought and consciousness.”  

Upon what condition does power depend?  

Upon recognition and use.

What is recognition?

Consciousness.

How do we become conscious of power?

By thinking.

What then is the true business of life?

Correct scientific thinking.

What is correct scientific thinking?

The ability to adjust our thought processes to the will of the Universal. In other words, to

cooperate with Natural laws.

How is this accomplished?

By securing a perfect understanding of the principles, forces, methods and combinations of mind.

What is this Universal Mind?

The basic fact of all existence.

What is the cause of all lack, limitation, disease and discord?

It is due to the operation of exactly the same law, the law operates relentlessly and is continually bringing about conditions in correspondence with the thought which originated or created them.

What is inspiration?

The art of realizing the omnipresence of Omniscience.

Upon what does the conditions with which we meet depend?

Upon the quality of our thought. Because what we do depends upon what we are and what we are depends upon what we think.

Now from where did we obtain this Power?

This we find in the following paragraph of Lesson 20:

25. A knowledge of your relation and oneness with this Principle that governs the Universe and the simple method whereby you can consciously identify yourself with it gives you a scientific understanding of a law whereby you may free yourself from disease, from lack or limitation of any kind; in fact, it enables you to breathe the “breath of life” into your own nostrils.

26. This “breath of life” is a super conscious reality. It is the essence of the “I am.” It is pure “Being” or Universal Substance, and our conscious unity with it enables us to localize it, and thus exercise the powers of this creative energy.

27. Thought is creative vibration and the quality of the conditions created will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess.”  At the moment we were born God breathe the “breath of life” into our nostrils. We have the breath of God within us.  

I close with this paragraph from lesson 20:

Power implies service; inspiration implies power; to understand and apply the method of inspiration is to become a superman.”

I am a superman, you are a superman/woman because of the breath of life from God and the power to control your mind.

Tom Shadyac discovered the power for himself as he explains:

Week 18 – The Journey of Purpose

This week during my sit on Monday I had this thought. What if to be natures greatest miracle on earth was a privilege and you were chosen above all in heaven to be that miracle! And the goal was not to get back to heaven but rather to learn to be truly grateful and happy and help others be truly grateful and happy before you return? That to be conformed to the thinking of the 95% of people is to be part of the average cult that keeps us away being truly grateful and happy.

Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

With this thought constantly on my mind and while reading lesson 18 of the Master Key System by Haanel my attention focused on paragraph 20 that reads:

“20. So with understanding; men are continually making progress in the methods
which they use to come into communication with the Universal Mind and its infinite
possibilities.”

One of those methods are found in paragraph 14 of the same lesson:

“14. Thought is the invisible link by which the individual comes into communication
with the Universal, the finite with the Infinite, the seen with the Unseen.”

This lead me to the amazing video “Jim Carrey’s The Meaning”

What a wonderful message:

“Ask the Universe ” you are the greatest miracle in the world.

Week 19 – I am natures greatest miracle

Since the beginning of the coarse at the end of September 2016 I have been waiting, praying, hoping, looking, expecting and wishing for miracles to happen for me. I was looking for the secret that will change everything thing in my life to perfection and easy going.

Well I had a week that Markj will call BS. That is very mildly put and I will call it “Bull Shit”. I experienced that most things just did not go as I planned and I ask myself where is this so called miracles that I am supposed to experience. This so called magic!

Then paragraph 16 and 17 from Lesson 18 from The Master Key System by Haanel hit me.

“16. The Understanding which is usually developed is nothing more than a “belief”,
which means nothing at all. The savages of the Cannibal Islands believe something;
but that proves nothing.

17. The only belief which is of any value to anyone is a belief that has been put to a
test and demonstrated to be a fact; it is then no longer a belief, but has become a
living Faith or Truth.”

Have I really put my belief that I am natures greatest miracle to the test and demonstrated it to be a fact? Has it really become a living Faith or Truth for me?

Then I watched the awesome documentary “I am” by Tom Shadyac and BAM I realized that ‘I am the problem and I am the solution.’

I went back to paragraph 3 and 4 of Lesson 1 of the Master Key System that reads:

“3. The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore, the
secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of
thinking.

4. This is true because we must “be” before we can “do,” and we can “do” only to
the extent which we “are,” and what we “are” depends upon what we “think.”

We must “be” miracles before we “do” miracles, and we can “do” miracles to the extent which we “are” miracles, and the miracles we “are” depend upon what we “think”.

This brings me back to what I think, I AM natures greatest miracle.

The Power of One!

Week 17 HJ – What am I pretending not to know?

What an amazing concept! At the end of Sunday’s webinar Markj ask us to focus and ask ourselves this question. He also introduced us to an amazing woman, Aimee Mullins. She took something that most people will classify as being disability and created a super-ability to the benefit of humanity as a whole.

This got me thinking and I became very quite and withdrew to my most inner thoughts this week and this thought dominated my silence.

‘What is my super-ability that I am not pretending to know?’

The more I spend time in silence the more these thoughts resurfaces:

Life is an exciting adventure and from Scroll IV of The Greatest Salesman in the World of Og Mandino:

“all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open.”

In my week 15 post I used the biblical story of Numbers 14 regarding Moses ‘that decided to send 12 men to go and spy out this promised land and after 40 days 10 of them returned with the following opinion. They said, “There are giants in the land, and we’ll never defeat them.”

Well this week I received this message from Pastor Joseph Prince:

See Your Giants As Bread

“..do not…fear the people [giants] of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.” Numbers 14:9

The 12 men whom Moses sent out to spy on the promised land all saw the same thing. They all saw the same big houses, the same huge grapes and yes, the same giants standing in their way! But unlike the others, Joshua and Caleb saw the giants as bread. The rest saw the giants as insurmountable, impossible obstacles. As a result, Joshua and Caleb were the only ones of their generation to enter the promised land.”
What struck me the most of this metaphor was to look at my ‘giants as bread’. According to the great writer Emmot Fox in his wonderful pamphlet The Lord’s Prayer, An Interpretation he interpret the word bread to mean
‘Bread, that is to say, means not only merely food in general, but all things that man requires for a healthy, happy, free and harmonious life.’
Wow to see my giants, that includes all my problems, discouragements, heartaches and so called disabilities, as my daily bread, all things that I requires for a healthy, happy, free and harmonious life.
To look at my giants as my super-abilities.
That’s living my life as a exciting adventure with imagination.

Week 17 – It’s You

This week has been a very challenging week for me both personally and at work and yet I am smiling for I know that each adversity leads to a better or equal opportunity.

So I returned to my quiet place and focused my thought on the following quote from lesson 16 of the Master Keys.

32. If you wish to bring about the realization of any desire, form a mental picture of success in your mind, by consciously visualizing your desire; in this way you will be compelling success, you will be externalizing it in your life by scientific methods.

33. We can only see what already exists in the objective world, but what we visualize, already exists in the spiritual world, and this visualization is a substantial token of what will one day appear in the objective world, if we are faithful to our ideal. The reason for this is not difficult; visualization is a form of imagination; this process of thinking forms impressions on the mind, and these impressions in turn form concepts and ideals, and they in turn are the plans from which the Master architect will weave the future.”

Wow everything I visualize already exists in the spiritual world and this visualization is a substantial token of what will one day appear in the objective world, if I am faithful to my ideal.

I need to be faithful to my ideal!

I also focus my thoughts on the following quote from Les Brown:

If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.”

So I was confronted with this question: Have I really take responsibility for myself?

Wow!!! The guy in the glass

The responsibility to be. Have I given myself permission to be?

Then I was lead to part 11 lesson 17 of the Master Key and I quote:

11. Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.” Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached.”

I give myself permission:

To be whole;

To be perfect;

To be strong;To be loving;

To be harmonious;

To be happy;

To be successful.

YOU must first find the “kingdom” before you can have the “things added.”

Awesome the responsibility for myself is mine. It’s You

Please enjoy the video that proof my moment of AHA!
