Wk 16 – Where’s The Love

One of our exercises in week 16 was to look for and do kindnesses.  For me this became a mission, because to be honest, I did not expect to see to many examples.  Now hold on; Mark, Davene, Sarah and the rest of you guides, before you email (comment) on that negative, OLD BLUEPRINT comment, I do realize where that came from, but I do need to be honest.

Well, to my delight, I was overwhelmed with the amount of kindness that people show each other everyday, it was just me not noticing.  No different than when you go and buy that brand new car in the color that “no one else has” and in the first week as you drive around your city you find that there are a lot of people driving the exact same model and color of vehicle you picked to be unique.  They were always there, they just weren’t there for you because you were not aware of them.  The same thing with the acts of kindness I observed.  Did people start being more kind to each other this particular week; no, I made a conscious decision to look for the virtue I desired to see and “PRESTO”, there was kindness everywhere.

The fact that over 300 of us were observing and doing acts of kindness all week, over 6000 were recorded.  The wonderful thing about this is now that I am aware, I know that I will forever see kindness where ever I go for the rest of my life.  What kind of world would we live in if more people started looking for and performing acts of kindness daily.  I don’t know about you but I am ready to find out.

Wk 15 – “WATCH YOUR MOUTH”

“You watch your mouth young man”.  A statement I heard on more than one occasion as a youngster, trying much too hard to impress my brothers who were 9 and 12 years older.  If I would have understood the power of the words that I was so carelessly rolling off of my tongue, I would have taken that warning much more seriously.

Words have the power to build a man up or cut a man down. In the Bible, Proverbs 18:21 states “the tongue can bring life or death; those who love to talk will reap the consequences”.

Throughout 15, Haanel teaches that words are the first manifestation of thought … the vessels which thought is carried.  He warns that we cannot escape from the pictures we incessantly photograph on the mind, and this photography of erroneous conceptions is exactly what is being done by the use of words, when we use any form of language which is not identified with our welfare.  If we wish abundance in our lives, we can afford to think abundance only, and as words are only thoughts taking form, we must be especially careful to use nothing but constructive and harmonious language, which when finally crystallized into objective forms, will prove to our advantage.

Wow!!  You see, for me, this way of thinking put a whole new view on “words”.  I learned how words that I spoke could bring joy to other peoples lives and help them to feel great about themselves, but I also learned how selfish, unchecked and carelessly used words can bring heartache and pain and take away a persons self confidence.  And the worst thing is that all to often those unchecked words are spoken to the ones we care the most about.  With age, comes wisdom and I now make a conscious effort to always “watch my tongue” when talking to others.  What I had not realized was the words that I was saying to me were having such an adverse effect on the outcome of my life.  I have always had a great sense of humor and love to make people laugh.  The problem was that a lot of my humor was talking about my faults and bad experiences in life; transmitting thoughts of lack, not abundance to my subconscious mind.  As the Good Book says “words can bring life or death; we reap what we sow”; my translation.

Thank you MK for helping me to see that the way I think (talk to myself) is exactly what will eventually manifest into my life.  Thank you also to all of you that are on this journey and are willing to share your Master key experiences.  I can not begin to tell you what a major impact you have had on my life.

Keep loving yourself and sharing that love with all you meet.

WK 14 – Believe and Be Set Free

Several years ago, I attended an MLM training where Bob Proctor was the key note speaker. Now I’m not sure how many of you have heard of Bob, but he is a true product of the teachings of the book “Think and Grow Rich”.  The whole purpose of him being there was to teach us the importance of correct thinking.  Now he only had 2.5 hours to try to explain the idea that we are the product of our own thoughts.  He carried a very tattered and worn copy of “Think and Grow Rich” and stated that he had been studying and using the methods and teachings in the book for over 25 years.  He did a few things on stage that were very thought provoking, things that are just now making complete sense to me.  He said that money, like everything else that existed, was nothing more than the manifestation of thought. In fact, at one point he took a twenty dollar bill out of his pocket and burned it, then explained that the money was still there, it just returned to the universal substance and could be brought back to physical form again by proper conscious thought.

I have to admit, I was not ready to hear this.  In fact I was thinking to myself ” What hospital did this guy escape from”.  However what Bob’s talk did do, was to instill in me a curiosity to find out more about him and the book “Think and Grow Rich”.  I believe his mission was accomplished.  Up to that day I had read one book cover to cover.  Over the past seven years I have read over 100 books, taken multiple courses and listened to many speakers in search of understanding the relationship between thought and material wealth.

When the student is ready, the teacher appears.  I still would not have been ready for Haanel’s teaching in Part Fourteen if I had not had the thirteen weeks of preparation that preceded through the MKMMA program.  I have learned that any thought I can hold in my conscious mind will be accepted by my subconscious mind, which is in unison with God (the Universal mind), and will be manifested into physical reality.  We have been given proof through the 7 Laws of the Mind and that these Laws, like any law, work with or without our knowledge.  Each week my mind has been expanded a little more, accepting a few more truths.

This week I have built new brain cells of recognition of the “universal substance” Mr. Proctor talked about all those years ago.  In 14-7, Haanel explains,”We know that scientists have resolved matter into an immense number of molecules; these molecules have been resolved into atoms, and the atoms into electrons.  The discovery of electrons in high vacuum glass tubes containing fused terminals of hard metal, indicates conclusively that these electrons fill all space that they exist everywhere, that  they are omnipresent.  They fill all material bodies and occupy the whole of what we call empty space.  This, then, is the Universal Substance from which all things proceed.”  He goes on to say in 14-8 that these electrons would remain electrons unless  directed where to go to be assembled into atoms and molecules, and this director is The Universal Mind,in my case, God.  Electrons revolving around a center of force forming an atom; atoms uniting in exact mathematical ratios forming molecules, which unite with each other to form a multitude of compounds which unite to build the Universe.

So if you think of all that we have learned to this point, we have a direct connection  with the Universal Mind through our Subconscious Mind; in fact in 14-21 Haanel explains that the only difference between the subconscious and the Universal mind is one of degree.  They differ only as a drop of water differs from the ocean.  They are the same in kind and quality, the difference is one of degree only.  Since the subby is the link between the conscious and Universal mind, our Mission, should we choose to accept, is to control the thoughts that enter the subby and are manifested into the life we live.

Let me throw another thought out there.  If; everything that exists is a result of the Universal Mind acting upon the Universal Substance; the Universal Substance and the Universal Mind are omnipresent; and, we have a direct connection to the the Universal Mind through the conscious thoughts we send to our subconscious mind; then, wouldn’t it be safe to conclude that the ONLY reason anyone could have a lack in their lives would be due to the thoughts that are allowed to reach the subconscious mind.

HOW CAN WE NOT GET EXCITED about our MKMMA journey where we are all learning to control our conscious thought process.

How liberating to know that I am exactly where I am today because of the way I think.  If I wish to change, in the words of Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) “what ever the mind can conceive and believe, it can have”, I only have to change my thoughts that are being sent to my subconscious mind.

Believe and be set free!!

Week 13 – Old Blueprint Came Knocking

Just as Mark warned in our week 13 lesson, Complacency can slip in unannounced.  With the holiday season upon us I went from missing a few readings to missing a few exercises and all of a sudden, there he was, pre Sept. 27/15 Randy, with all the excuses. The old blueprint would have given up, gone back to that so called “comfort zone”.

Then they started to appear again. Blue rectangles, red circles, yellow squares and green triangles and guess what; I started to feel a comfort come over me. You see that old comfort zone no longer exists, it has been replaced with a new, exciting yearning that I just can’t let go of, to become one with my creator and experience the real “I”, .

As I thought to myself, how could this happen, Haanels words in 13:24 came to mind: “We have found that everything we get comes to us by the Law of Attraction.  A happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions necessary to meet the changed consciousness must gradually change, in order to meet the requirements of the new situation”. For most people, their consciousness around the holiday season is one of happiness, and thus happiness is attracted into there lives; however, once the season has ended and we all have to go back to our lives, that happy consciousness disappears.  The same thing happened for me, visiting my children and grandchildren, enjoying the company of friends and the festivities of the season allowed me to completely let my guard down and still experience all of the joy of the season.  As soon as life started to get back to some form of normal the old fears and insecurities were back.  Thank God for MKMMA; the guardian is back at the gate of the universal mind, and I’m reading and doing the exercises that are helping me experience the real “I”.

Back on track.

Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season!!
