Week 16 – Kindness

This week we had the amazing privilege to focus on the virtue of kindness and what a beautiful week it’s been. Well while thinking about my topic for my blog post for this week I received a message from a very good friend, Vaughan Anderson, with the following video attached for which I am eternally grateful that says more about kindness than I can even try to put into words.

This is true kindness.

Week 15 – Look at things in a different way

In this beautiful inspirational chip Robin Williams remind us of the following.

‘to look at things in a different way’

‘even if you think you know something you must look at it in another way’

‘when you read a book don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think’

‘strive to find your own voice, because the longer you wait the less likely you are to find it’

‘breakout’

‘dare to strikeout and find new ground’

I have found on my journey through life that on a daily basis I am confronted by difficulties, obstacles, problems and discouragements that in the past caused a challenge for me but after having the privilege to study the wonderful Lesson 15 of the Master Key System by Haanel and Scroll IV of the Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino I found the opportunity ‘to look at things in a different way’.

In paragraph 7 of Lesson 15 Haanel states:

“7. All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.”

In Scroll IV of the Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino states:

“I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that 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. I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.”

I decided to look at everything as a great opportunity.

Week 14 – Movie week

The formula that we are taught in our Master Key Course for the extra ordinary change in our life’s is:

DMP + PMA + POA + MMA = Life Changing Experience

Each step is defined as follows:

DMP = Definite Major Purpose

PMA = Positive Mental Attitude

POA = Plan of Action

MMA = Master Mind Alliance

Now this week we were requested to have some family fun and watch one of the following movies:

Door to Door, October Sky, Rudy or Cool Running’s

I choose Cool Running’s.

What you think about will manifest in reality.

That was awesome, so I watched it with my family and a amazing thing happened to me. I found each of the steps mentioned above in the story line and I cried. This emotion I haven’t felt in a very, very long time. Something happened inside me that started a change. It’s amazing.

You have got to watch it. One of the parts that made the biggest impact in my life was regarding not to imitate anybody. Finding your true identity.

To determine your Definite Major Purpose in life you also need to find your identity and proclaim your rarity.

The other movie I watched this week that also had the aforementioned principles in the story line was Facing the Giants. The part that had the biggest impact on me was the following story of the two farms that had the same desire for rain and both of them prayed for rain to the Creator. One of them went out to prepare his fields for the rain the other one just kept on praying.

Which one are you …..

We all have a deep hearts desire, a personal calling, that we long for and pray for. Are your fields prepare to receive the rain when the Creator sends it.

I found my identity in the following words.

I am

I leave you with this, the meaning of Cool Running’s,

“Peace be the Journey…..”

Week 13 – Choose Love or Fear

In Lesson 13 of the Master Key I was ask to focus on the following for my exercise.

“27. When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I,” the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that it is the same in substance, in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one” and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal.”

Then I received this inspiring message and I realize that all I have the choose of love or fear.

I can ask the Universe for it.

Week 12 – The Alliance to Master your Mind

In week 11 we were guide on our Hero’s Journey with the following awesome exercise from Lesson 11 of the Master Key System by Haanel.

“35. For your exercise this week, concentrate on the quotation taken from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”; notice that there is no limitation, “Whatsoever things” is very definite and implies that the only limitation which is placed upon us in our ability to
think, to be equal to the occasion, to rise to the emergency, to remember that Faith is not a shadow, but a substance, “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

I want to share with you the following awareness I had and trust that it may help you on your journey to discover the ‘other you’. Before I continue I want you to take a few minute and concentrate on the video below. I know most of you have seen it many times but because of last weeks lesson it had a profound effect on my journey.

So what was so profound about the video. Well we hear we were born perfect but do we really believe that? What do perfect mean? I was reminded of the 4 habits that Markj shared with us that leads to success and happiness. They are:

Definiteness of purpose + Positive Mental Attitude + Plan of Action + Master Mind = Success

While concentrating on the quotation from the Bible mentioned above in Lesson 11 I realized the following:

“Whatsoever things ye desire” this relates for me to what Napoleon Hill calls “the riches I received at birth in the form of the power to control and direct my mind to what every I desire.” My ability to Master my Mind and THINK, this is the first of the four habits the creation of a Definiteness of purpose in life, a thought;

“when ye pray” to sit in silence, to be in harmony with the Universal Mind, being one, this relates to me to the fourth habit of being part of a Master Mind with the Universal Mind;

“believe that ye receive them” Thought + Feeling + Believe = Faith “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” This is none other than the second habit of a Positive Mental Attitude;

“ye shall have them” creation or manifestation through the third habit of a Plan of Action received from the Universal Mind;

Wow so this perfection means I was born with the ability to Master my Mind, to THINK for myself. I am one with the Universal Mind, I was born with perfect faith and the ability to receive the perfect plan to bring into manifestation what every I desire.

BUT what happened because of the cement around my golden Buddha? One of the consequences that I caused was that I have imprison my faith with the untruths I have created. When I start breaking the false agreements I have made in life, my faith is freed and it returns to me with all its power. The more and more I replace lies with truths and create agreements build on my authentic self, the more it leads to more of my faith being freed. My faith in the Omnipotence of the Universal Mind returns to me and leads to harmony(true prayer) with the Omnipotence of the Universal Mind, that leads me back to releasing my authentic self.

You are the gate keeper to you faith!
