Master Key Week 21 – I’m a Miracle?

I had to go back and replay a portion of the webinar, it literally blows my mind and quite frankly I am still trying to wrap my head around it.  Everything around appears solid but is mostly just space as they are made up of atoms which are mostly just space!!  The only reason everything doesn’t turn to atomic dust is because all the atoms are working in harmony by traveling at 40,000 miles a second!!  That is definitely a bunch of miracles happening all around around us.   The human body is made of approximately 30 to 40 trillion cells and each cell contains 100 trillion atoms.  This means we are mostly space but we are appearing solid because of the atoms working in harmony moving at 40,000 miles a second.  Guess what?  If everything else around us is a miracle we must all be living miracles!!!

Well if I am a living miracle, What am I pretending not to know?  What would the person I intend to become do next?

The person I intend to become, would start to live every day as if it is his last.  He would dig in deeper to the Master Key assignments.  He would ask for help from those that offer it.   As Mark would say it is time to Giddy Up!!!!

Just a little something I wanted to share from the Lesson 21 reading this week that Louise Shickle mentioned on Marco Polo this morning and it resonated with me during my reading.

18. An illustration of how these mind forces operate is suggested by the method in which all our habits are formed. We do a thing, then do it again, and again, and again, until it becomes easy and perhaps almost automatic; and the same rule applies in breaking any and all bad habits; we stop doing a thing, and then avoid it again, and again until we are entirely free from it; and if we do fail now and then, we should by no means lose hope, for the law is absolute and invincible and gives us credit for every effort and every success, even though our efforts and successes are perhaps intermittent.

I found this paragraph to be very liberating.  The law gives us credit for every effort and every success.  Wow!!  instead of beating myself up for missing  a daily assignment, having a negative thought, etc.  I get credit for the effort and every success.  So I can say I am improving every day instead of I am a failure I am worthless.  The Law of Dual Thought we can attach any feeling to a thought we wish.   It is after all our choice.

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

Have a great week!!

Love

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!!
