MKMMA – Week #5 – The transition begins


fishoutofwater723ebfb76c3dd12cd60f1849609b9457Hey everyone!   I just wanted to let you know that I am moving to a hosted blog!

The Upside? : I get all the bells and whistles (and trials and tribulations of Widgets!  List Building! and Control! (oh, my)

The Downside…  I have to ask you all to “Follow” me over … Here.

I  am going to need a lot of warm bubble baths and maybe a glass of wine or two (or three…) after this transition – hope to see ya’ll on the flipside!

Mahalo!

 

 

MKMMA – Week #5 – Rotten to the core – but Salvation is from within.


Broken-Road-Battered-But-StrongerWow this week has been so hard – talk about LIFE getting in the way (it was on double duty!)… and Ol’ Blue was right there to pick up any slack and pull harder on the strings of “just quit” and “it so difficult, take a break“.  I think I averaged about 4 hours of sleep each day this week…and that’s down again from the previous weeks.

I mean, yeah my enthusiasm is WAY up, and for the most part my energy is way up…until it isn’t then I find myself performing an extended “sit” (that’s what imagine telling people if they were to find me face down on my keyboard)…

I feel like I am cramming in sooo much more during the day – that it becomes difficult to remember what I need to get done…so – against my Ol’ Blueprint’s wishes I have started making lists… !!  Turns out I should have been doing this all along as it is one more example of the Law of

Funny how right out of the gate the intro to this weeks’ Master Keys informs us that :

But thought works no magic transformations; it obeys natural laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually upon the whole of your environment.

Damn it – you mean I can’t just think my way to success and affluence?!?  (not that I ever thought I could…but it would have been nice, right?)  So, even though our subconscious mind is the greatest source of creativity and abundance anywhere – it cannot stand on its own (it works no magic transformations) and our efforts encourage the expression of our inner thoughts in the outer world.

In fact in perfect alignment with the lesson this week much of the difficulty in my life right now is exactly as both The Greatest Salesman and this week’s master Key” teach:

“…I am a slave to my habits, as are all individuals.  I have surrendered my free will to the years of accumulated habits and the past deeds of my life have already marked out a path which threatens to imprison my future.”  – Og Mandino

“…everything which can possibly enter into our lives depends upon the character of the material which enters into the construction of our Mental Home.”  MK 5-9

The character of this material is “the result of the impressions which we have accumulated in the past and stored away in our subconscious Mentality. MK 5-10

If we aren’t careful with our thoughts and efforts: “We shall be forever busy trying to Patch it up and make it appear at lest genteel.” MK 5-10

This week then is the result of years worth of inattention and lack of exactitude in the small things in life that like the Slight Edge – result in epic failure and living a life of quiet desperation.

It has been extremely rewarding to slowly dig out from under my old blue print, put a more careful watchman in place, and begin the intentional correction of those past deeds that HAD marked out a path…

No longer will I accept of my self a shirking and skimping attitude, ALL things must be done – even the most minute- with intentional integrity toward the future I have envisioned in my DMP!  With the rock solid foundation I am building starting today as a “New Man, with a New Life” the lofty goals I have written down in my DMP will stand the tests of time.

 

… To be continued tomorrow😉 I just had to remove about a million “s” characters… apparently an extended sit wove it self into life here at …1:20 am.  :) Good night for now.

MKMMA – Week #4 – The great “I” am…finally understanding.


I had to stop right in the middle of everything this morning and put these thoughts down for posterity – and perhaps someone will experience the unbelievable AH-HA moment that I had in its revelation…

This morning I chose not to get out of bed at 4:45am – and a small part of my mind went “… failure?”

I then chose to stay in bed at 5:30 – my normal time for morning readings of the Blue Print Builder, our cards, and my DMP… and again the debate in my mind…

At 6:30 am this morning I got out of bed and yes – my vitality and vigor ARE way up from what they used to be when I got up…but this morning something pushed me for the first time ever in this course, to change the sequence of my readings.  Instead of BPB, cards, DMP shouted from the back deck – echoing off the neighbors silos! – and then back inside to warm up as I read the Master Key and meditate… today something (and I cannot help but see it as my growing connection to the Infinite Intelligence)  suggested that I read the Master Key first.

During that reading of the Master Key several things clicked into place – some I wouldn’t even realize for another 30 minutes.

It is thus that fate, fortune, and DESTINY will be controlled as readily as a captain controls his ship, or an engineer, his train.
MK 4-Intro

The above emphasis is mine, to remind myself of the myriad connections that are made
through the architecture of words in coming into an acceptance and possession
of the power within each of us …here’s a rough draft of my DMP to complete this example.

Today the added affirmation given to us on Sunday (I can be all that I will to be) drove the following point home – but I think the connection was made inside me during the reading of my Blueprint Builder.  This morning, as I was reading through my BPB I stumbled frequently – mixing words around just a little, missing a word or two as I tried to recite from memory (You got close enough, that’s good enough…says my old blueprint…)

And on the fourth paragraph these THREE thoughts collide in rapid succession:

  • “I have clearly written down a description of…”
  • “This is the week to quit…quit giving less than 100%”
  • “I”

That’s it – the most powerful realization was that SINGLE LETTER representing a SINGLE WORD – that means EVERYTHING…  *BOOM*  and the tears started to uncontrollably flow (as they do now – what the heck…) as I went back to the beginning, looked up at the horizon and said out loud:

“I am sorry, that old good enough … isn’t… any more.  “I” am worth so much more than a simple 100% effort – and that clearly wasn’t even that.”

And I began again – reading through the tears but feeling a thrill within me – I had no idea at the moment what … goosebumps, emotions, something  right?  And read EVERY WORD PERFECTLY and with emotion…

The “I” of you is not the physical body, that is simply an instrument which the “I” uses to carry out its purposes; the “I” cannot be the Mind, for the mind is simply another instrument which the “I” uses with which to think, reason, and plan.  MK 4-1

Your personality…<is> the result of your former method of thinking, but <it> has nothing to do with the real “I”.  MK 4-3

…the real nature of this “I” is spiritual, and is the source of the real power which comes to men and women when they come into a realization of their true nature.  MK 4-4

… When the objective mind has been satisfied that the thought is true it is sent to the Solar Plexus…to be made into our flesh, to be brought forth into the world as reality. … MK 3 -4

I have said before, but never connected with the thought, that it seems we have a three-tiered existence… and I think it finally clicked for me reading my Blue Print Builder… Just as I acknowledge the phrasing of “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit” from my religious upbringing, I begin to see the connections that

We are coming to think of God as dwelling in man rather than as operating on men from without.  MK 4-18

Know ye not that ye are the temple of the living God?  1 Cor 3:16

The “I” encompasses everything – it is our representation within, and connection to, the Infinite Intelligence… Is this intelligence the “Father”?  Our bodies are the corporal representations of us within this temporal and physical existence… the Son? (And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us John 1:14)  And as the previous phrase implies, the Word – a command, a series of thoughts (?), a ghost if you will of power and all things that were, are, and may yet be?

There is no discernible separation to me, given this understanding, between the “I” (as our individualization of the Infinite) and the Universal Intelligence (as the generalization of all of “us”).


As I read through the rest of my Blue Print Builder, all three cards, and my full DMP… every single time I hit “I” in those there was new meaning and understanding – more power and purpose.  And as my “Do It Now! I can be all that I will to be” echoed off the neighbor’s silos I finally let understanding in and accepted that I had been focussed on finding “my own power” from the outside for too long.

…I finally understand… the Great “I am”.

MKMMA – Week #3 – The FEAR of True Connection


vertigo-photography-3Dang… I think I am starting to get addicted to this sense of vertigo that comes with letting go of control and trusting that things will be there.

That’s somewhat larger than a HUGE issue for me, and it frankly scares me quite a bit.  Not, mind you, in a ‘poison can kill you‘ kind of way, but more of an ‘other people may get hurt if you screw it up‘ way.  And with a wife and family that you have supported on your own strength of will – your own ability to create outcomes… that shakes my psyche a little…

To paraphrase the Master Key this week:

The conscious mind must have FAITH that God (or the Universal Intelligence) will provide.  It’s a non-option for going forward in our relationship and understanding of this connection between ourselves, as the Individualization of our Creator\Infinite Intelligence and the creative power that relationship brings us into possession of.
MK 3-27

Let GodWe must let go of E.G.O. and the misplaced comfort that we get from being the responsible one.  That somehow everything we have, everything we control – everything we ARE is somehow only a result of our actions in isolation from the world around us.

The more I read, and especially as I sit (as directed in the Master Key excercises) – the clearer the message – the understanding – becomes.

The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends on our method of thinking MK 1-3
Every thought therefore is a cause and every condition an effect MK 1-31
…and the error of the ages is in looking for strength or power from without.  MK 1-38

I have made it through 44 years of life, very successfully, on just the power from without.  I know,  I know… the power within was there working all along… but without my intentional direction – without letting that concept get inside me – it sure felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders.  Dang it – I was -in- control, I had it covered and everything was going to go the way I had planned it… except nothing felt real or solid, my whole world felt disconnected.  Outwardly things in my life appear successful, but I have never let another person inside (to potentially hurt me?)  My mind runs over things done (incorrectly? incompletely? accurately?) or undone (was it that important? it’ll be fine…) and I toss and turn at night.  Or worse, I am in a foul mood, snapping and commanding – never happy…

Sure, I knew what I needed to do – I’ve been reading “self-help” and “personal development” books since my mother started me on them when I was 12.  But here’s the thing, just exactly as the Master Keys state:

The world without is a reflection of the world within MK 1-8
In exact proportion to the recognition of this truth will be the manifestation in the outer life of the individual. MK 2-Intro

Those ‘guru’s, whether intentional or not, never seem to help their readers make the true connection that Mark Janusewski’s team of guides and the MKMMA system do.

142009842There is a recognition and understanding of the connection between your conscious mind and your subconscious world that MUST be accepted with intent.

directionlessI am finally seeing the light, all this time I had trusted my intuition but never acknowledged the fact that intuition comes from that overlap between ourselves and the Infinite.  I had never intentionally directed that inner power to positive outcomes, and certainly never given it exact and directed plans for a better future. All I ever did was was fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants and hope that enough resources would be available to cover any needs – I never expected more and so my subconscious gave me exactly what my blueprint commanded of it… “enough”.

And, getting exactly what was blueprinted, I whined and complained that for all my “sacrifices” I never received more than “enough”…

Eliminate any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.  MK 3-Intro
… When the conscious mind has been satisfied that a thought is true, it is sent to the …subjective mind, to be made into our flesh, to be brought forth into the world as reality.  MK3-4

I am ready to destroy my old blue print now…it’s reared its ugly head once too many times in just this past week.  It was extremely liberating to almost physically see it grasping at straws to keep me from continuing with integrity.  Emotional games of “you’ve done this before”, physical games of “you’re sooo tired, do it tomorrow”, and especially vile mental games “you’ve sacrificed so often in the past, how is this going to be any different” …

Dear “Old Blue”, we’re through you and I.

Going forward,

I Promise to do my best.

MKMMA – Week #2(a) – Thoughts are powerful things


Surface_Tension_by_DWALKER

Surface Tensions – D.Walker

Wow – the powerful emotions that crop up as you work through the exercises in the Master Key Program, particularly as I begin to realize that I’ve had SO much “guru” clay slapped onto my conscious mind that I could barely feel the whispered suggestions from my subconscious.

Right out of the gate with Master Key Part Two we receive:

Our difficulties are largely due to confused ideas and ignorance of our true interests.
The great task is to discover the laws of nature to which we are to adjust ourselves.

I could feel the surface tension in my mind reel with the emptiness those simple statements drove deep into my thoughts…

Is this why I fall asleep feeling worth-less, every night?”

 What is it, really, that I am interested in
– what DO I want to accomplish with this life?

And whadda ya mean adjust MYSELF to nature’s laws??

I’ve read just about every “self-help” and “personal development” book out there – my mother had me studying Brian Tracy, Og Mandino, and Tony Robins since I was in my pre-teen years… so why was I so miserable in the midst of so much “success”?  I had the information! I knew what I should be doing… I’ve fed my conscious mind all the “right” tools and information… but then I read in the Master Key this week:

It is often true that conditions of fear, worry, poverty, disease, in-harmony, and evils of all kinds dominate us by reason of false suggestions accepted by the unguarded subconscious mind.
All this the trained conscious mind can entirely prevent by it’s vigilant protective action.
It may properly be called “the watchman at the gate” of the great subconscious domain.  MK 2-14

But we shall find that there is a vast difference between simply thinking, and directing our thought consciously, systematically and constructively…  MK 2-28

And for whatever reason my subby chose NOW to connect these two thoughts:


Trust in the lordThe ability to receive and manifest this power depends on the ability to recognize the Infinite Energy ever dwelling in man. MK pt2 Intro

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5


Whoa, so there’s a difference between relying on one-self (doing all the thinking, and only trusting yourself\conscious mind) and trusting – having Faith – in God (…lean not on your own understanding).

This is going to be sooo hard for me – I have believed in God, but never trusted anyone (or any ‘thing’) but myself…

Part of me is scared stiff by the thought of trusting such an unseen and intangible force, yet totally and completely in AWE of the ramifications that such trust can put us in direct creative partnership with it….

Almost like standing at the top of a cliff or at the door of a plane and … oh boy.  I’ve never been afraid of heights, but this concept has my insides queasy\thrilled in a whole new way… I almost can’t sleep for thoughts of what next week will bring!!

MKMMA Week #2 – Understanding the Fundamentals


#BePhenomenalOrBeForgotten

WHEW – made it through the first week!! And I find I cannot type fast enough — the first draft of this post came out as a barely coherent, bullet-list of partial sentences.  RE-writing to get the continuity of thought as it nearly spews from that intuitive and infinite expanse of the inner mind… hold on people we’re approaching Plaid here!!

I seriously feel like there was a quantum leap that occurred in me today – the first full day of Week Two.   Pieces of information just started clicking, almost audibly, into place since Sunday night around 5:00pm CST.  And, as I write this post I am recalling that there were actually pieces of this connectivity occurring all last week – I just didn’t realize them until right now… exciting\scary\awesome — YES!!!

Pieces of the shift from last week:

  • Discussion within the MKMMA Alliances section:
    Faith is the Substance of things Hoped for, the Evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1)
  • Digging further into the reference:
    Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

2014-10-07_1058That bolded piece was a thunderclap in my mind *BOOM*,  I’ve always believed that everything in the universe is just different vibrations of energy – that how “solid” or “fluid” something appears to be is merely the fact that it (and all the molecules that make it up) are vibrating at a frequency that makes it’s interaction with the other objects around it “what it is”.  An absolutely wonderful book that communicates this idea in a fun and entertaining way is Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah.  I’ve read it so many times I have sections memorized – and while it’s got quite a bit of the fantasy genre about it, it speaks directly to the concepts we are learning in MKMMA.  That our understanding and acceptance of the enormous power we have at our disposal takes both faith and self-control to fully possess – but when we do our world becomes so completely different from those around us that it appears almost magical to those unaware of the Infinite Intelligence.

So – back to the Leap: around 5:00pm on Sunday a friend – who is also going through MKMMA with me on his own PIF scholarship (Hi Ted!!) – and I were discussing how this topic feels a bit “mystical” and “newage-y” to him, but for me it is so clear and “normal”.  Not so strangely our discussion devolved into tossing the concept of String Theory (and then Membrane Theory) around as we digressed down the scientific viewpoint of matter and energy.  Yes we are both serious and un-apologetic nerds…

How curious then that I would actually start reading more about Membrane theory today and come across these bits:

From Wikipedia: Membrane Theory
“In general, the term duality refers to a situation where two seemingly different physical systems turn out to be equivalent in a nontrivial way. If two theories are related by a duality, it means that one theory can be transformed in some way so that it ends up looking just like the other theory. The two theories are then said to be dual to one another under the transformation. Put differently, the two theories are mathematically different descriptions of the same phenomena.”
and further down…
“Another important theoretical idea that plays a role in M-theory is supersymmetry. This is a mathematical relation that exists in certain physical theories between a class of particles called bosons and a class of particles called fermions. Roughly speaking, bosons are the constituents of radiation, while fermions are the constituents of matter. In theories with supersymmetry, each boson has a counterpart which is a fermion, and vice versa.”

From my layman’s understanding of science, this sounds an AWFUL lot like scientists are (finally?) defining how Energy\Radiation relates to Physical\Matter… and saying that they just might be the same thing!!

To bring this back around to the MKMMA – and the pieces clicking into place…

I am reminded of “Clarke’s Laws” as I get deeper into understanding our relationship to our conscious mind, and thereby our control of the subconscious mind….

Clarke’s Third Law:  Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Perhaps the corrollary is: Manifestation by exact and disciplined control of the subconscious, through exercise of free will (conscious choice) — is indistinguishable from magic (but will invariably be supported by science?).

neurotechnology-mind-control-moves-into-battle-e1341615900370-637x360

We sit at the controls of our conscious mind and can use IT as the tool with which to direct the infinite creativity of our subconscious mind.

We aspire toward the divine as we realize that we have intentional control over the conscious mind.  By exerting our Free Will through intentional choice of Conscious thought – we come into possession of the creative power available through our connection with the Infinite Intelligence.  As we come into the understanding that – almost from a third-person point of view – we sit at the controls of our conscious mind and can use IT as the tool with which to direct the infinite creativity of our subconscious mind, it becomes clearer to us and those on this journey with us that we truly do have complete control over our reality.

I find it exhilarating (and at the same time almost terrifyingly so) that we have such a personal relationship with this Divine power.  Can you imagine how much trouble we could get into were we given direct control – rather than merely “remote” control via Free Will – over our subconscious.  If that image doesn’t give you chills you need to go back and really read the Master Key parts One and Two again.

Like a savant child our subconscious only knows it needs to BUILD and CREATE – it has no awareness of “safe” or “un-safe”, much less “right” or “wrong” – it’s sole purpose is to create – continually striving to manifest MORE.  As we read in Master Keys Part One – the sub-conscious is our connection to the Infinite.  And that Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom which is in existence (1-34).  Therefore what we choose to allow into our storehouse will ultimately determine our physical reality.

Like a parent, our conscious mind guides and directs the development and creative playground that the sub-conscious creates within.  Our subby picks up on those pieces we feed it, builds upon them and ties seemingly irrelevant pieces together in those AH-HA moments where accidental genius appears.   As we see in so many religious texts – and expressed more clearly in the Master Keys – our conscious mind is the gatekeeper and watchman of the data our subconscious gets to play with.  If we desire to build a life where our dreams ARE our reality, we must tear away at the clay covered sand of our current foundations – and retrain our Watchman so that our new foundation is built with intent and of only the finest materials.

With much power comes much responsibility.

 

Unfoldment

I created this image – January 9th 2014 – I can’t recall why this phrase came into my life, but…
anyone recognize it??!! *goosebumps*

 

 

I am just noting the following for my personal reference 6 months from now,
with the expectation that more serendipity will show itself in the weeks ahead
and this will be but a child’s plaything, toying at the edges of my awareness
as the MKMMA helps me into a better understanding and possession of the
intuitive creator within.

Coincidence that I overlaid a design similar to what scientists theorize the relationships between energy (thought) and matter (outcomes) might look like?!?

MKMMA – Week #1(b) – Working in the right place matters… a LOT.


tumblr_l1tunwhGi41qzb7gjo1_500[1]We’ve all been there, that dark place inside – where our thoughts run circles around our dreams and desires, holding them hostage to that frustrating “wall” of … nothing.

We know there’s got to be more to this life – heck we can SEE that so many people seem to be so much happier, so much more successful, and have access and control over more material possessions.  We -want- what they have, and we are told “model what these people do, and you can have what they have”…

Success looms just outside our comfort-zone’, “Buy our book” and we’ll tell you how to get there!’

The path to Success is to take MASSIVE, DETERMINED ACTION’ – annnd join our Elite Group of Successful People for just an obscene amount of money, you too can say you’re in the club!

painted_wall_moisture_crack_201005047

Resurfacing my life…

Everything looks good in our lives, except…

  • We don’t keep our commitments
  • We over-extend ourselves
  • We can’t pick up the phone to make our calls
  • We get crabby for “no reason”
  • and lash out at friends and family

Our lives look good…except for that blemish, that crack in our otherwise perfect veneer we expose to the world around us.

 

tumblr_inline_na61k77OZk1raprkq

The EXPERTS tell you what to do and think…

So we buy the book (after book after book)… listen to CDs, DVDs… attend seminars… and join those groups looking for the holy grail, the Secret to a successful and happy life…

Essentially applying duct tape to “fix” our lives.  And all we end up with is THIS: 

tumblr_inline_na61koZWk31raprkq

… just one more patch over the problem within us.

Every time you complete the book, or invest yourself in the “Elite Group” – you see a momentary flash of happiness and joy…maybe THIS time the patch will hold!!!  But we gradually slip back into the grey, homogeneous BLAH that has been your life…our thoughts and habits…  until NOW.

Enter the Master Key Master Mind Alliance.

Go get on the list NOW, it's THAT important!
then come back and finish...

MKMMA – Week One …the rest of the story.
