Master Key Week 14 – Progression

Our assignment this week was to watch 1 of 7 movies and write in our blog about persistence.  This is really a great enforcement of persistence as we are reading this chapter in the Greatest Salesman in the World for the month of December.

The movie I chose was Cool Runnings.  This movie was about a person named Derick who wanted to win an Olympic Gold Metal and follow in his father’s footsteps.  Unfortunately during the qualifications he was tripped and did not qualify for the Olympics in Track.  As fate would have it while trying to get another chance to qualify he noticed a picture on the wall of his father with another Olympic Gold Medalist who had won the Bobsled competition.  This person tried to get his father to convert to Bobsledding years earlier.  Derick located this guy to get him to be the coach for the Bobsled team.   When he said no, Derick did not take that as an answer.  He persisted until the Bobsled Gold Medalist agreed to coach him.  There were numerous hurdles that Derick had to overcome.  He needed to have four people for the Bobsled team, he persisted until he got his team.  They had to do a lot of improvising to practice as obviously there is no ice in Jamaica.  He had to persist through all the negative talk of people thinking he was crazy for wanting to have the first Jamaican bobsled team.  They had to raise $20,000 to travel to the Olympics, they Masterminded as a group to figure out different ideas to earn the money to go.  When the bobsled coach got a sled for the team, it wasn’t much to look at but Derick said it was beautiful.  He definitely had a positive mental attitude.  The team persisted constantly, by learning to walk then run on ice; they had to practice constantly to meet the crucial 6 second time of getting in the bobsled  at the start of the race.

There are four tiny habits to being a success and Derick had them all.

1. Definite Major Purpose  – Derick wanted an Olympic Gold Metal

2.  Positive Mental Attitude – Derick definitely had it.

3.  Plan of Action – Derick had this he wanted to get to the Olympics, he needed a Bobsled Team, coach, the funds to travel

4. Master Mind Alliance – So important, Derick definitely had one his coach and team.

Medal, Trophy, Achievement, Award

I really enjoyed this movie and I would really recommend it.  There was something in this movie that I want to share near the end of the movie the coach said to Derick “A Gold Metal is a wonderful thing but if you are not enough without it, you will never be enough with it.”

That statement really hit me.  I took that statement as whatever your gold metal is, more money, a promotion, whatever it is; if you are not happy with yourself and grateful for who you are and what you have inside you will never be happy  when you get “your gold metal.

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

Have a great week and make each day the best day of your life!!

Master Key Week 13 – Progression

In last week’s post I mentioned that I was waiting for a call that my father had passed.  Well on Friday morning December 15, after being at work a little more than an hour, I received the call, that he passed away at 10:05am.  I had already told my manager that I probably wouldn’t need anymore time off unless the family wanted to have a memorial talk for him as he is a Jehovah’s Witness.  However, once I received the call, I immediately realized, I have a bunch of phone calls I have to make.  One of my co-workers called one of the other drivers who agreed to come in and the shift manager said go take the day.  Very grateful everything fell in place quickly.  I left and immediately called my brother Jim who  I reached about five minutes before he would have gotten to the Nursing Home.  He had to leave for the airport in about two hours to catch a plane to head back home.   So I said I just need to inform our sisters of Dad’s passing do you want to meet for coffee?  He said sure, make the phone calls and I’ll call our other brother and let him know.

We had gone to dinner the previous night and I thought that would be the last time I would see them while visiting.  However, because of the timing of my Dad’s passing though sad, the brothers were able to get together for one more visit (Law of Dual Thought). After we left  Dunkin Donuts, my other brother Mike and I went to the funeral home and made the arrangements.

Once I got home I made a couple more phone calls to inform them of Dad’s passing.  Then later that afternoon I was kind of in a funk.  My wife even asked, how are you feeling?  I told her I don’t know.  I couldn’t put my finger on it.  Do I want to cry? No.  Am I sad? Maybe, I did lose my Dad.  Or do I want to throw a pity party for myself because I lost my Dad?  I just couldn’t go there, every time I started thinking about it I kept on thinking he’s gone but he is no longer suffering and just lying in bed because of his Parkinson’s Disease (Law of Dual Thought).  I went to bed that night had a great night sleep and got up the next day and went to work and have been fine ever since.

As I am writing this, I had just dropped my cat Mitzy off at the groomer and the Funeral Home was right up the road, so I picked up my father’s ashes.  As I was walking to the car, I asked my Dad how he was doing?  I immediately said well Dad at least your at peace now.  I am too.

I just had to put that out there.

On the Marco Polo chat, Mark J. asked us to think about the scrolls 1, 2 & 3 and think about how they are linked.

Here is how I feel the Scolls 1, 2 & 3 are linked.

Scroll 1 – Replacing bad habits with good habits

Scroll 2 – Love

Scroll 3 – Persistance

Replace not reading, with reading, replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts, replace not doing with doing. Loving that we are replacing bad habits with good habits.  Persistence, keep working on replacing those bad habits with good habits when we fall short.  Persist at telling each person we encounter that we love them (in silence). Loving that we are persisting to improve in everything everyday.

This week we need to write out at least three cards a day of what we are grateful for.  I write out four because I like balance, I put two in the car and two on my desk, it’s the bookkeeper in me.  Monday & Tuesday, I had no issue writing out the cards, Wednesday was a bit of a challenge thinking of things to write but I did complete it.  This morning when I was on my walk I was thinking about what Alejandro from Mexico said on Marco Polo.  “I see links everywhere”  Then I started thinking about one of my gratitudes that I wrote was my computer.   Then I started thinking about my computer it’s a box.  I am grateful for the hardware that makes it work, the software that runs the programs the electricity that powers it, Benjamin Franklin that discovered electricity and many other links that I am sure I could come up with if I really thought about it.  Then during my mastermind call with Steve Wiebe I was telling him about this and he mentioned the Battleship exercise taking it from a massive ship to something that wasn’t even thought of.  I had forgotten all about this.  There is a reason why Masterminding is so important.

From Master Key Chapter 13

26. We can best conserve our interests by recognizing the Infinite Power and Infinite Wisdom of the Universal Mind, and in this way become a channel whereby the Infinite can bring about the realization of our desire. This means that recognition brings about realization, therefore for your exercise this week make use of the principle, recognize the fact that you are a part of the whole, and that a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole; the only difference there can possibly by, is in degree.

I immediately thought of the quote listed below.

 

My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in the past experience, though proceeding out of it by an orderly sequence of growth. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change its inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner with me; consequently, in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before. - Thomas Troward

 

Hope everyone has a great week and I am glad I am on this Master Key journey with you.

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

Paul

 

 

 

 

Master Key Week 12 – Progression

Every week I have been using the heading Master Key Experience a Work in Progress.  This week I decided to change it to progression.  On Sunday’s webcast Dayna stated if you wanted to be added to our Marco Polo Group just email me.  I am not an outgoing person and was a little hesitant sending the request but I said “Do it now” and just took the leap and I sent the request to Dayna and now I am part of the group that includes Dayna and the Fabulous Davene.  The first day I was in it, the group was showing off their cats.  I am a cat person and that instantly made me feel comfortable and I introduced myself and showed  my cat Mitzy.  It felt like the universe was telling me see what happens when you have trust?  Yes progression!!  I am making steps forward!!

Yesterday on the Marco Polo group one of the members Alejandro from Mexico shared something very interesting that I would like to share.  He has a poster and on it he has different steps and he shared Step 4 with us and it stated “The #1 strength I want to demonstrate today so I can crush it is?”  So he asked us what our choice was.  I saw this last evening so I didn’t respond last night.  This morning when I got up and threw some clothes on and put my contacts in to go for my 2 mile walk.  So I got to think about it during my walk today and I thought about it being the Mental Diet and then I changed it to Gratitude and this is what my post is going to be about this week.

First, when I got up this morning I knew it was going to be cold, it was cold yesterday and they said colder today.  I was not looking forward to going for my walk this morning.  I checked my phone and it was 24 degrees, yesterday was 25 only a degree difference I can handle that.   Gratitude.  I went outside to go for the walk and it was snowing, the ground was just coated so I was still able to complete my walk. Gratitude.  During my walk I got to enjoy walking in the snow.  Gratitude.  The wind was calm.  Gratitude.  I just relaxed and enjoyed the walk and just got to think about what I want to crush today?  Gratitude.  I did not fall during my walk as it wasn’t very slippery. Gratitude.  It only took me 9 seconds longer to complete my walk than yesterday.  Gratitude.

Why did I choose Gratitude over Mental Diet?  My opinion is if you are always looking to see what you are grateful for, I believe the mental diet will take care of itself.  You will automatically have a positive outlook.

I also want to tie this in with the Law of Dual Thought – you can attach any feeling to a thought you want.

Brain, Energy, Thought, Mental

 

As I am writing this, I am waiting for a call that my father has passed.  He is in a Nursing Home they stopped his medication and he’s on Morphine.  I will probably be notified sometime today.  Yes, I am losing my father,  I am grateful!!  You might think that is terrible.  I think it’s positive, he has advanced Parkinson’s Disease.  He has been in a Nursing Home for nearly 10 years.  For at least the last 3 years  laying in a bed not able to communicate can’t type on a computer, never mind going on a walk like I did this morning.  Gratitude for what I can do.  I personally would not want to spend the end of my life-like him.  I was notified of his coming demise so I was able to visit him and thank him for everything and get my closure before he passed. Gratitude.  I had to call a couple of my sisters and tell them.  However I got to listen to them about a few things and clear the air by being the “quiet observer”.  Gratitude.  Both my brothers are coming to town I haven’t seen either of them for a few years as one lives in Mexico, the other in North Carolina. Gratitude.  As I am writing this I talked to one of my brothers Mike.  We are probably going to get a bite together tonight.  Gratitude.

Just a couple of things I am grateful for.  It’s currently 24 degrees at 11:30am.  I am warm, I have  plenty of oil, I have a roof over my head.   I have my love bug kitty laying on my desk purring as I am working on this.  Gratitude.

I also am very grateful for the Master Key because I know working on my thoughts is definitely helping me go through what should be a very difficult time.

Thank you Alejandro from Mexico for making the comment about what we want to crush today?  It really got me to think.  Gratitude.

 

 

Master Key Week 11 – A Work in Progress

A little excited about something that happened this week.  On my DMP I had written I am committed to drinking two liters of water daily & I affirm a minimum of 3x daily 10x minimum that I am a healthy person, my A1C, labs and ultrasound are all normal.  This is of great benefit as Dr. Pareek told me on 12/5/17 visit that my ultrasound was clear.  On Tuesday, December 5th that is exactly what Dr. Pareek told me “Your ultrasound was completely clear!!”

Our exercise for this weeks sit is to focus on the quotation from the Bible, “Whatsoever things ye desire, when we pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”,  What a powerful phrase!!  No limits!!  We can have whatever we want, providing it doesn’t take from anyone else’s good.  I started thinking about this, wow!!  You mean I can ask for $100K?  How about 200K?  How about 500K?  Do you desire it?  Do you pray for it?  Most important do you Believe you can have it?  Yes?  Then you can have it and much, much more,  remember no limits!!  Obviously money was the first thing I thought about.  Then I started to expand my thoughts.  No limits.  How about health?  I personally take insulin and medication for diabetes.   Is it possible to eventually not take any medication?  I desire it, I pray for it.  Remember Frederick Andrews from lesson 9.  “I have grown from a little, crooked, twisted cripple going about on my hands and knees, to a strong, straight, well formed man.”  With what Mr. Andrews accomplished, I certainly believe that one day my medication will be history.

How about diseases such as Cancer, Parkinson’s  and many others?  Why not?  or can we even eliminate them with our thoughts?  From this week’s reading “A very distressing situation came into my life, which could not have been the result of my thought, as I certainly never entertained any thought which could have such a result.”  We fail to remember that like attracts like in the mental world, and that the thought which we entertain brings to us certain friendships, companionships of a particular kind, and these in turn bring about conditions and environment, which in turn are responsible for the conditions of which we complain.

So if I constantly state (with enthusiasm!!):

“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious and happy.”

What positive things are going to branch off into my life?   Unlimited happiness? OMG  wouldn’t that be amazing?

I found this very interesting

“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more, 
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.”

Jessie B. Rittenhouse

My wish for you is that you are Whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, healthy, harmonious & happy.
Enjoy the unlimited abundance!!

Master Key Week 10 A Work in Progress

This has been a week.  The mental diet, took a big hit last night I probably reset at least a dozen times within a half hour.  I picked up both my computer and my wife’s laptop from the repair shop yesterday.  I had initially brought mine in because I couldn’t get on to one of my bank accounts.   There was some malware on it and he updated the antivirus software.  Before I picked up the computer I made sure he could get on to my bank account which he could.  I get the computer home hook it up and tried to login to my bank account, couldn’t get in!! ( I had a feeling this would be the case.)  I tried my wife’s laptop same thing.  It’s only this one website, I can get on to my other bank account and Facebook no problem.  So I call my internet service provider and as soon as I started explaining what was going on she said you need to call your bank.  I could tell she didn’t want to deal with the issue.   I told her I will call my bank and abruptly ended the call.  Then I called the bank and explained the issue and they basically said it was an issue with your internet service provider.  So I said fine, have a great night and abruptly ended the call with them.  Mental diet reset.  So I said to my wife I will deal with this in the morning as I had some online banking that needed to get done ASAP.

This morning I was thinking about the issue and said to myself, please god help me resolve this issue.  I was thinking about what was going on and I call my internet service provider and when the representative answered the phone I said I want to tell you a story but I would like you to have an open mind.  He said no problem.  I told him I couldn’t get on my computer or my wife’s laptop but they were just in the computer shop and they could access the account on both computers and it is just this one website..  He mentioned how about your phone?  I told him I couldn’t access it there either.  He had me disable the Wi-Fi on my phone and BINGO I got in!!  He walked me through resetting my modem to default factory settings and I now can get in on my computer!!

My point is I totally take the blame for this issue not getting resolved last night.  I tried to resolve it issue after working a 10 hour day and being up for roughly 15 hours.  I was tired and didn’t think the issue through clearly.  In my mind I was thinking they were going to say it was the other company’s issue.  Guess what?  That is exactly what I manifested.

Design, Night, Beauty Salon, Sky, Stars

This morning I asked for help to resolve this issue, thought the issue though calmly and related it calmly to the technician who was able to figure out the solution, manifesting a very positive outcome.

The other thing I did this morning is my wife asked me to make her a sandwich and I sighed.  I immediately caught myself and got up and made the sandwich.

In the webinar a couple of weeks ago Davene mentioned that you might feel like your going crazy and it’s totally normal.   I am glad she said it because I feel like I have a ping pong going back & forth in my head.  Negative thought comes in, start dwelling on it  (the poor me old blueprint) then have a day with lots of positive thoughts.

The way I figure it is that Old Blueprint is really fighting to stay in my life.  I am trying so hard to kick his behind to the curb.  I love the way I feel when I am in a positive vibration I enjoy the thoughts that go through my head when I reading my DMP and the other readings.  Let’s be honest, that Old Blueprint isn’t going to die without a fight.  I have had mine for over 56 years so I know I am in for a brutal battle.

This week I got a request from someone to Mastermind with and we connected this morning and had a nice chat.  I told him about how I am not a patient person and he immediately caught it and said affirm “You are a patient person!!”  We also talked back and forth about our feelings with the Master Key and we had a lot of same feelings.  I personally recommend to get someone to Mastermind with, you will be surprised at what can come out in a conversation.  You may also find that what your feeling is the exact same way someone else is feeling.  Thank you Steve Wiebe!!  I am looking forward to our next chat!!

Have a great week everyone and my wish for you is

“That you are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!”

 

Master Key Week 9 A Work in Progress

First of all I apologize for getting this blog posted late.  My computer was in the shop this week.  It will need to be dropped off again to have the remaining malware removed.  FYI per the Computer Shop stay away from coupon sites they are notorious for causing virus issues.  Anyway, I am grateful to have the computer back so I can catch up with my Master Key peeps and see how they are making out with their mental diet and comment on the blogs in my group. I also review blogs of some of the other members who mentioned they posted their blogs in the Alliances area.  Nice way to get to know other members points of view.

This week we received a new affirmation that we can use “I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Loving, Harmonious & Happy.”  I set up a new recording this week with Baroque music playing in the background, reciting this affirmation along with “Visualize my new reality daily as a Service to others by November 26th.  Meditation, Spiritual, Yoga, Meditating

The affirmation “I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious & Happy.” Was in the Week 9 reading.   This was an affirmation that Frederick Elias Andrews used.  He stated “I kept this affirmation, always the same, never varying, till I could wake up in the night and find myself repeating, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.” It was the last thing on my lips at night and first thing in the morning.  Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I know needed it.” This affirmation caused Mr. Andrews to convert “from a little crooked twisted, cripple, going about on my hands and knees, to a strong, straight, well formed man.”  I definitely think this is one affirmation that is going to reap positive results in my life!!  As mentioned in the Week 9 audio reading, use this affirmation as the Law of Substitution and our mental diet got a big boost!!

I really started thinking about this affirmation and thought I am whole, what does this really mean?  I looked it up in the dictionary to see if I could get a better understanding of this word.  One definition was obvious, all of; entire.  I understand that, “He ate the whole donut.”  Another definition, in an unbroken or undamaged state; in one piece.  I started thinking how does this apply to me?  The “I” in me is spiritual, the universe is certainly not broken or damaged.   The universe certainly is perfect it operates in exact precision.   So since I am part of the universe I am whole, all this marvelous power goes through me.  Whatever you think about grows, I don’t have enough STOP!!  “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”   I am (negative thought)  STOP!!  “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, harmonious and happy.”

I am reading this statement on my index card three times a day plus I am stating it multiple times throughout the day.  I want this statement to become part of me just like it did for Frederick Elias Andrews.

For everyone reading this blog and anyone else, my wish for you

Genie, Aladin, Carton, Aladdin, Arabian

is that you are “Whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious & happy.

Have a great week!!

Master Key Week 8 A Work in Progress

Week 8 already.  I cannot believe it.  How time flies when you are having fun!!  This week with the mental diet has been very challenging and enlightening.  I constantly have negative thoughts and have constantly restarted this diet.  Earlier this week I was honestly thinking that I am addicted to negative feelings.  This is not good!!  Especially after this from part 8 of the Master Key.

There is therefore but one law, one principle, one cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or noncompliance with this law.
The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and in harmony.
Here we have two grand men, each intent upon achieving the same ideal, but one makes use of constructive thought and is therefore in harmony with Natural Law, the other makes use of destructive thought and therefore brings upon himself discord of every kind and character.

It is evident therefore that we are to hate nothing, not even the “bad,” because hatred is destructive, and we shall soon find that by entertaining destructive thought we are sowing the “wind” and in turn shall reap the “whirlwind.

Wow!!  Looking at the Blueprint Builder part 5.  I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism by developing love for all humanity, because I know I negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.

Think this mental diet is important?  I sure do.  I better focus on the positive if I want to move north (yes I am using a compass metaphor) toward my new life.

Sunset, Sea, Beach, Cloudless, Sky

The blueprint builder eliminate hatred.  I took it as I shouldn’t hate people.  I now understand this to mean eliminate the word hate period.  Look for the good, positive things.

As our reading this month of the Greatest Salesman.  “I will greet this day with love in my heart.  I did send my first Marco Polo chat this week to Tribe Sunshine and sent love to the group.  I am also sending love to everyone in the Master Keys I am glad we are on this journey together!!

Mensaje, Vector, Happiness, Happy, Day

And a great week!!
