Master Key Week 20 – What am I missing?

I have read this lesson over and over again.  It is a very powerful lesson yet I am having a difficult time with it because I feel like I am missing something.  I am part of the Universal Mind, I am part of the whole.  My thoughts are going to determine my life.  I get it, if I think positive thoughts I will reap positive results and negative thoughts will lead me to negative results.

The infinite power is all around us this beautiful power is always present.  We just need to plug into the right frequency.

I keep on reading the last part of Paragraph 19 and I just feel I am missing something.

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

I put this question out there on a Marco Polo group and Davene kindly responded with an example.  You were inspired to feed the stray cats at your work,  that is the power you were in service by feeding the cats.

Solve, Jigsaw, Problem, Concept

I talked to my Sweetie about this, I read paragraph 19 to her and had her listen to both my and Davene’s Marco Polo and she said.   You were inspired to feed the cats because it brings you joy.  You like giving because you like seeing the looks on the people’s faces.   That is it!!!      When she said it, I started to tear up.  That is it!!!   That is what I want to do.   I want to find something that I can do that I can see the happiness and joy in people’s lives.

I knew there was something in this chapter that was important and I just wasn’t connecting the dots.   Thank you Davene and Sweetie!!   I wouldn’t have figured it out without both of you.

As always my wish for you is that you are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.

With Love,

Paul

Master Key Week 19 – Reflection

Here we are in week 19.   I usually get my blog posted on Thursday which is my day off.  However, to be honest yesterday I was kind of in a funk, I didn’t know what to write, didn’t want to write whatever my excuse is.  The bottom line is I made a decision not to write my blog yesterday.   Here it is Friday evening and I decided I want to get my blog done before the Friday night deadline.

Yesterday caused me to reflect on why I had a negative attitude?  I have always leaned toward the negative before the Master Keys and those stinking peptides are trying to rear their ugly heads again!!  I appreciate the Master Key course because  now I am aware of this behavior and I have the choice, stay negative, or think positive thoughts.  Do I want to use the Law of Substitution, flip through index cards, write out gratitude cards to break those negative thoughts?  I have the tools to change my thoughts; do I want to use them?  That is my decision.  My decision is I want to develop a stronger positive attitude.  I want my positive attitude to keep growing and keep pushing Mr. negativity farther and farther away.  Yesterday was just one of those days that I haven’t had in a while.

Lesson 19

17. You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation and in discordant conditions in your environment.

I just have to keep working on  thinking positively, to keep growing positive results.   The negative thoughts don’t come as often as they use to.  However, this was a great reminder that I need to keep diligent with my assignments and readings and dig even deeper.

My wish for you is that you are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.

 

Master Key Week 18 – Puzzle Pieces

What I am I pretending not to know?   What do I want?  What would the person I intend to become do next?  Hmmm  Good question.   What would he do?  Persist at figuring it out?  Focus on it during sits, ponder the question during the day.  This is definitely a work in progress that I plan on continuing.

I feel like a jigsaw puzzle.   I have the puzzle almost all together but I can’t get the last few pieces to fit.

Heart, Love, Puzzle, Missing Part

I look back to when I started this journey on September 24, 2017 until now.  I see an enormous change.  I am more positive, happier.  Yesterday when I was out working I caught myself whistling.  I never used to whistle!!   This morning my Sweetie even said to me that she has noticed positive changes in me!!

I wanted to share a couple of gratitudes.  This morning my Sweetie said do you hear the birds outside and I said now that you mentioned it yes.  It made me  think spring is getting close.   A few hours later Cristina from Belgium shared on Marco Polo birds chirping and she was excited Spring is coming!!  I thought that was cool.  She also shared her Violin audition which was excellent!!  I was so happy she shared it.

The other thing I am really grateful for is thinking of the friendships I am developing.  In the United States (this is off the top of my head) I have friends  in Washington, California, Ohio, New York, Virginia, Hawaii and Florida.  I also have friends, in Canada, Mexico, Belgium and Romania!!  Isn’t that cool?

My wish for you is that you are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious & happy!!

Have a great week!!

Love & Peace

Master Key Week 17 – HJ – Crossroads

This week has been a very difficult week for me because I have been obsessed with trying to answer a question.  During the Sunday’s webinar.  Mark told us to write on an index card, “What am I pretending not to know?”  I have internalized this question during my sits this week and I have been thinking about it a lot during the day.   I have come to the conclusion that what I am pretending not to know is “What do I want to do with my life?  I really don’t know.  I am 56 years old and don’t know what I want to do.   I currently deliver pizzas and I do enjoy the job and seeing my customers, but the job quite frankly only provides a paycheck, there are no benefits such as health insurance or paid holidays or vacations.   I want to make more money, but that is an effect.  What do I want to do that will make me happy? What will make me happy? For today’s reading I chose to read Lesson 13 and these paragraphs just popped out at me.

17. If we think of some form of material wealth we may secure it. By concentrated thought the required conditions will be brought about, and the proper effort put forth, which will result in bringing about the circumstances necessary to realize our desires; but we often find that when we secure the things we thought we wanted, they do not have the effect we expected. That is, the satisfaction is only temporary, or possibly is the reverse of what we expected.
18. What, then, is the proper method of procedure? What are we to think in order to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire, what everyone is seeking, is Happiness and Harmony. If we can be truly happy we shall have everything the world can give. If we are happy ourselves we can make others happy.
19. But we cannot be happy unless we have, health, strength, congenial friends, pleasant environment, sufficient supply, not only to take care of our necessities but to provide for those comforts and luxuries to which we are entitled.

While I was talking to my Sweetie about this another reading popped into my head from the Greatest Salesman’s reading this month you are nature’s greatest miracle.

“I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now 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 am no longer fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes open. ”

I feel if I can answer this question “What do I want?” I am going to have  great opportunities.  Also, how many other people could I help who possibly feel the same as me?  All I need to do is answer this question.

This cement has really been caked on and has really hardened over my 56 plus years on this earth.  I know it is going to take work to get through these layers of cement.    The funny thing is this has not been a difficult week because of depression or self-pity,  it has been because I have been obsessed with finding the answer to this question.    I could be on the edge of breaking through to success!!

Stay tuned!!

My wish for all of you are that you are Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Healthy, Harmonious & Happy!!

With Love,

Paul

 

 

 

Master Key Week 17 – Greatest Showman

A co-worker  at my Sweetie’s work mentioned that she and her husband went to see the Greatest Showman  and really enjoyed it and said the music was awesome.  My Sweetie enjoys musicals and wanted to see it.

“The Greatest Showman” is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, “The Greatest Showman” tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

We went to see the movie this past Sunday that didn’t conflict with the start of the Master Key webinar.  I didn’t know anything about the movie.

Last week was Kindness week, and this week we had to choose a new word from the Franklin Makeover.  My word for the week was decisiveness.  When I started looking for decisions on Monday, there was such an abundance that could not possibly check them off.  Just driving to work I started thinking about the decisions made while in the car.   The decision to start the car, listen to radio, CD, MP3, audio book, turn on window defroster, or have it warm your feet and blow at your face.  Use lights, direction signals, horn. etc.  I looked at houses and started thinking about decisions people make regarding houses, the decision to buy, rent, the neighborhood they want to live in.  The decisions made to decorate the house, what temperature they set the house at, the type of heat they use.

I could write an easily write a 10 page blog on different decisions but I don’t want to bore you.  I am sure you get the picture.

Anyway back to the movie.  As I mentioned, I didn’t know anything about the movie.  Once the movie started all I could think about was the Master Keys, as I am writing this blog four days after the movie; I am thinking about all the references to the Master Keys and the Franklin Makeover.

P.T. Barnum had all the qualities from the Franklin Makeover:

  • Self-Control
  • Discipline
  • Enthusiasm
  • Courage
  • Persistance
  • Specialized Knowledge
  • Imagination
  • Decisiveness
  • Well-Organized
  • Taking Initiative
  • Pleasing Personality
  • See God in Others

I also noticed in the movie

  • A Master Mind Alliance
  • Definite Major Purpose
  • Kindness
  • Love
  • Service to Others

I guess from all the readings, index cards, listening to recordings I am starting to become more aware.

I am also aware that I really enjoyed this movie.  🙂

My wish for you is that you are Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Healthy, Harmonious and Happy!!

Have a great week!!

With Love,

Paul

 

Master Key Week 16 – Kindness week

This week we are to observe and complete random acts of kindness.  For this week, to maintain our scholarship we are required to enter our kindness comments daily under Kindnessess section in the Alliances area.  I have really enjoyed this assignment.  The goal this week was to break the old record of 4177 comments.  Personally I had no doubt that this record was going down.  As I am writing my blog on Thursday, January 11, 2018 we are at 4323!!  The old record is history, but I am not satisfied.  Mark’s ultimate goal this week is to get to 8000.  This is such a positive assignment.  How can we reach the ultimate goal?  To me it is not just about the number it is what is represents.  To me it is expanding kindness in the world.

Dog, Girl, Retriever, Golden, Friendship

This week I have been focusing on kindness.  I have noticed that I am more positive, happy, grateful and enjoying my days even more.  I have also noticed my awareness for kindnesses expanding.  Some that have mentioned people holding doors, getting to go in traffic and making others job easier by putting shopping carts back in the holding rack.  My awareness in these areas has vastly increased.  I will also give you another example.  I deliver pizzas and there is a $3.49 charge for delivery, most customers give me a tip in addition to the delivery charge which I consider a kindness.  The more we think about kindness it is going to increase (Law of Growth).  Just imagine how much better it will be if we expand others’ awareness of kindness?

I hope you all have a great week and my hope for you all is that you are Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Healthy, Harmonious and Happy!!

Master Key Week 15 – Progression

Wow week 15 officially starts on January 1, 2018.  A new year, a new scroll and obviously a new weekly reading of the Master Key Experience.  What a fantastic way to start the new year!!

Book, Open Book, Leaf, Mind, Renew

When we start a new scroll we are to bring over a phrase that resonated with us from the previous scroll and read it out loud prior to starting the reading of the scroll.  My choice was “I forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this is the best day of my life.”  Within 30 minutes of getting up I am completing my Master Key readings and the scroll is the first reading I do,  and starting out with “greet the new sun with confidence that this is the best day of my life” to me is a great positive statement to start the day.

I really enjoyed the Master Key reading this week.  There is so much substance to chapter 15.   There is so much I can link to the readings this week.  Here are a few examples.

4. Growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new, of the good for the better; it is a conditional or reciprocal action, for each of us is a complete thought entity and this completeness makes it possible for us to receive only as we give.

This made me think of the Giving Card, “I promise to give without expectation of  reciprocity from the channels I enrich, because I know I am in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving.  I also linked this to the Law of Growth, what we think about grows and what we forget atrophies.

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.

This made me think about the Law of Dual Thought.  Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.   We can look at the obstacle as a negative or positive it is up to us.

20. We know that the Universal Thought has for its goal the creation of form, and we know that the individual thought is likewise forever attempting to express itself in form, and we know that the word is a thought form, and a sentence is a combination of thought forms, therefore, if we wish our ideal to be beautiful or strong, we must see that the words out of which this temple will eventually be created are exact, that they are put together carefully, because accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest
form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.

21. Words are thoughts and are therefore an invisible and invincible power which will finally objectify themselves in the form they are given.

This made me think of our Definite Major Purpose (DMP) and why it was sent back to me multiple times for revisions.  Thank you Lorelei!!  This also made me think of the importance of the words written down on the bottom of my Service Card.  “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.”

School, Black, Green, May Refer To

This week we also were told to add a 1-2 sentence “mini-journal” about a positive experience from the day, along with three daily gratitude index cards of things we are grateful for that day.  We are also to flip through the index cards daily.  While I was doing this reading  I associated the index cards to the reading as to the importance of this exercise.  It is imperative  that I develop a positive mental attitude so I am in harmony with the natural laws of the universe.

I hope everyone has a great week of feeling “whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.”

I am glad we are on this journey together!!
