MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 17

MasterKey 17:9 – The subconscious mind may be aroused and brought into action in any direction and made to serve us for any purpose, by concentration.

Concentration of thought. Concentration of mind and body. Concentration like a magnifying glass directing rays of sunlight into an intense point of heat and flame. Our subconscious mind is the doorway to our entering our true heartfelt abundance, yet that same subconscious mind needs to be directed with concentration. Powerful purposeful concentration. Not strained frustrated concentration.

The Law of Relaxation – Mental effort defeats itself; exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to infinite intelligence.

Steer the ship steady and calm. Steer with pointed determination, but with steady calm. Be steady, calm, and determined and abundance will come.

The Scroll Marked IV – I concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment and my actions help me forget all else.

With proper focused concentration unnecessities drop away. With calm fixed concentration the speed toward your goal increases.

MasterKey 17:17 – The intensity of one moment’s earnest concentration and the intense longing to become and to attain may take you further than years of slow normal and forced effort; it will unfasten the prison bars of unbelief, weakness, impotence and self-belittlement, and you will come into a realization of the joy of overcoming.

Concentrate. Concentrate. Concentrate.

The First Verity – I am grateful that I am, day-by-day, minute-by-minute more and more aware of the infinite bounty surrounding me.

Gratitude. We are proclaiming three or more gratitudes everyday! Not only am I finding more and more things to be grateful for in my daily life, but man!! It’s astonishing the things I’m realizing from my past that I’m truly grateful for that yet I have so easily forgotten. I’m grateful for this exercise for reestablishing my connection to so many wonderful things. Chunks of cement are coming off simply from this.

The First Verity – The greater my gratitude, the more things to be grateful for begin to flow into my life. Each gratitude flowing from my heart triggers even more things to be grateful for.

And when I’m sitting in silence, when I’m meditating, gratitudes are opening up! They are coming through.

MasterKey 17:22 – If you concentrate on some matter of importance, the intuitive power will be set in operation, and help will come in the nature of information which will lead to success.

MasterKey 17:24 – Intuition usually comes in the Silence; great minds seek solitude frequently; it is here that all the larger problems of life are worked out.

Meditate. Meditate. Meditate.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 16

The Master Key, Part Sixteen – The Law of Sevens governs the life of individuals… The first seven years is the period of infancy… 35 to 42 is a period of reactions and changes, this in turn is followed by a period of reconstruction, adjustment and recuperation, so as to be ready for a new cycle of sevens beginning with the fiftieth year.

I’m 53. I’m now in that new cycle of sevens beginning with the fiftieth year. I’m in a new period of infancy. But better than that first seven years of infancy long ago. Better because this time I have a 53-year-old-seed to grow from!! It turns out that I have planted a seed for 53 years, here I sprout, here I grow! Amazing. Better because this time I can direct. Better because this time I can ask for. Better because this time I can use the mind properly. Oh the excitement of what is to come! The excitement of what is.

Like the excitement of The Six Million Dollar Man, “We can rebuild him, we have the technology, better than before, better, stronger, faster.”

Yep, old TV shows are part of my 53-year-old-seed too!!! Ha!!

MasterKey 16:8 – The power to create depends entirely upon spiritual power, there are three steps, idealization, visualization and materialization.

In other words: Think it, foresee it, it appears!

Better because this time the mind will be used properly. Oh the excitement of what is to come! To be conscious of what to think about, to be conscious of what to ask for, to be conscious of what to visualize, to be conscious of what will come with proper effort. My power!

Master Key 16:16 – It is by the exercise of this power that we take our fate out of the hands of chance… because when we consciously realize a condition, that condition will eventually manifest in our lives.

Power. My power. The power to dictate after 53 years what I will to manifest here after. I am planting a 53-year-old-seed. I’m a gardener, I’m a farmer, I’m a florist. And I’m sprouting from that beautiful wonderful 53-year-old-seed and becoming what I deem my purpose. I can be what I will to be. I am what I will to be. A flower. A power flower!

The Scroll Marked IV – But my skills, my mind, my heart, and my body stagnate, rot, and die lest I put them to good use. I have unlimited potential.

My potential is unlimited, but I must stay strong in mind and body. I must apply the knowledge gained. I must do.

The Scroll Marked IV – I am not on this Earth by chance. I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.

And observing Kindness while giving Kindness. Love!

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 15

The Scroll Marked IV – I am nature’s greatest miracle.

The power that statement holds makes me giddy!! I am a miracle of nature and hence powerful beyond measure. I am a bolt of lightening in the storm of the Universe. I am a wave on the ocean of creation. I am a star in the night sky of the Cosmos. I am powerful beyond measure for I am nature’s greatest miracle.

The Scroll Marked IV – I am a unique creature of nature.

There is only one me. Further proof of my power. I am unique, one of a kind. My uniqueness is what gives me my power. My experiences, my thoughts, my actions, my words. My power lies within those. My experiences, my thoughts, my actions, my words are the fuel that ignites my power and drives me to my destiny. My unique experiences power my present being, and build the launchpad toward my future. My unique thoughts, directed well, power the vehicle toward my major purpose. My unique actions, completed with love, power a foundation of strength that I stand on steady. My unique words, spoken with truth, power my energy of commitment and integrity. My uniqueness gives me power.

The power of my unique experiences. Master Key 15:7 – All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit.

The power of my unique thoughts. Master Key 15:10 – In order to possess vitality thought must be impregnated with love.

The power of my unique actions. Master Key 15:13 – Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form.

The power of my unique words. Master Key 15:17 – It is with words that we must express our thoughts, and if we are to make use of higher forms of truth, we may use only such material as has been carefully and intelligently selected with this purpose in view.

My uniqueness gives me power. There is only one me and I shine in that status. I’m a complete manifestation of the Universe and I’m almighty powerful. My uniqueness allows me to accomplish anything. I am me. I am a unique creature of nature. I am nature’s greatest miracle.

The Scroll Marked IV – And nature knows no defeat. Eventually she emerges victorious and so will I, and with each victory the next struggle becomes less difficult.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 14

Mirror Work and Flash Cards!
Flash Cards and Mirror Work!

What a combination! Feeling lighter. Chunks of cement evaporated. Evaporating.

Staring in that mirror while repeating incantations out loud with enthusiasm! Exposing the self in ways not known before.
Writing flashcards of gratitudes and well done deeds while repeating them out loud with enthusiasm! Boosting the self in ways not known before.
What a combination!

Admittedly the holidays with family in Florida has slowed the practice of the above and all Master Key exercises, but there is no deviation, and the path has it’s twists and turns. Feeling good about it and enjoying the sights that the path has to offer.

The Scroll Marked III – The prizes of life are at the end of the journey, not near the beginning, and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal.

Chunks of cement are evaporating one step after another. Determined. Persistence.

The Scroll Marked III – Always I take another step. If that is of no avail I take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

Observing the mind. The Negativity. The Positivity. The In-Between.
The mind that creates what is experienced. Objectively, subjectively, materially, within, without. Everything! The mind creates. The mind is the force! The mind directs. The mind leads. The mind is the architect and artist! The mind is God. The mind is the connection to the Universal. Behind the eyes in the mirror. Written on the flashcards read out loud. The mind.

Master Key 14:14 – It is therefore apparent that there is mind in every atom of the body; this mind is negative, and the power of the individual to think makes him positive, so that he can control this negative mind. This is the scientific explanation for metaphysical healing, and will enable anyone to understand the principle upon which this remarkable phenomenon rests.

Healing and power. Heal and know your power. To be healed is to become one with the power within. It isn’t to gain your power or to become powerful. We already have the power. We already are powerful. The cement has caused us to lose touch. Evaporate the cement. Regain that touch and know!! Know!

Master Key 14:20 – The Universal Mind, being infinite and omnipotent, has unlimited resources at its command, and when we remember that it is also omnipresent, we cannot escape the conclusion that we must be an expression or manifestation of that Mind.

We are a leaf on the tree of the Universe. We are but a manifestation of the Universe. The power of the Universe are we. You and me! We are one. The same. Together. The Universe. Mind is that connection. Mind. The Universal Mind.

Master Key 14:16 – All things have their origin in mind, and appearances are the result of thought. So that we see that things in themselves have no origin, permanency, or reality. Since they are produced by thought, they can be erased by thought.

Erase the cement. Evaporate the cement. The cement has no reality, no permanency. Good-bye Cement, Hello Mind.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 13

MasterKey 13:23 – Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement.

Thought is the seed. Thought begets all. Thought is the life-force of creation. Thought!
But be careful!! How do you spend your time? In Idle or Constructive thought?

Oh my Idle thoughts, I am aware of you. The dead-ends, the U-turns, the stray streets that you have had me trod! But I am gaining my power! Surely my Constructive thoughts have the edge.

Law of Substitution – We cannot think about two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind… turn from it and think about something else instead.

Take that my Idle negative thought! Sooner quicker faster I train myself to be aware of you and I promptly change to Constructive positive thought! Idle or Constructive. Idle vs Constructive. I know which team I’m on!

MasterKey 13:15 – It will be found that the creative power of thought will explain every possible condition or experience, whether physical, mental, or spiritual.

Another reminder that the sentinel at the gate of the mind must be strong and steady! The workings of the mind must be guarded! Do not let negative enter, Do not let negative grow. Do not voice negative. The power of the mind is what touches, molds, produces our physical, mental, and spiritual realms! Let the mind be Constructive and positive.

The Scroll Marked III – I persist until I succeed.

I persist and stay strong as the Law of Substitution works in my favor quickly and decisively keeping me and my thoughts on the proper path. A path that touches the Universal. A path that walks with God. The path that leads to real happiness. Constructive, positive, happy thoughts lead to Constructive, positive, happy circumstance. The Law of Attraction.

The Scroll Marked III – I persist until I succeed.

The Law of Practice – With practice of the correct things we improve.

I am aware and guarded. I am aware and creative. I am aware and Constructive. With this knowledge I take action. I forge ahead with concentration and determination. I am consciously, systematically, and constructively directed. I persist knowing that the power within me is the same, the very same, as the power that created the Universe. God. Mind. Thought.

MasterKey 13:20 – The “Father” is the Universal Mind, the Creator, the Original Substance from which all things proceed.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 12

Magic mirror on the wall
Whose the fairest of them all?

Mirror work! Glaring at yourself, staring at yourself, while repeating an incantation. Going beyond your eyes seeing yourself anew and feeling your spoken declaration. We did that this week for 50 minutes straight and it hooked me! That was NOT easy, but I’m doing it more! Getting past the sense of myself through the doorway of my eyes while enthusiastically feeling my Definite Major Purpose as already existing and complete! Oh! Without realizing it I walked away from the mirror many times. just to go back to that mirror and – Boom! – I’d find myself somehow away from it again. That was not easy. But I’m going to do it more. 50 minutes straight created a new and profound experience. Mirror Mirror.

The Guy in the Glass -
He’s the feller to please never mind the rest
For he’s with you clear to the end
And you’ve past your most dangerous difficult teat
If the guy in the glass is your friend

Is mirror work another avenue toward self-realization? Breaking down the unreality of the image in the glass while entering inside the eyes staring back at you. This face, this body, this image in the mirror – nope, not real. But what is inside the eyes? Something more real than the flesh. We need to let go of this sense of self! Let go the delusion of the body. Play with the eternal beyond the eyes.

The Scroll Marked II – I greet this day with love in my heart. And most of all I love myself. For when I do I zealously inspect all things which enter…

Mirror work. My gaze is entering my eyes. I’m the inspector inspecting myself. I zealously inspect and let myself enter. Love! I discover Love! There’s Love in there!! Love from within! With that Love anything is possible!! I gaze while declaring my Definite Major Purpose! Enthusiastically declaring while seeing, feeling, merging with the Love from within.

Master Key 12:18 – The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power to correlate with its object, and therefore to master every adverse human experience, is the law of attraction, which is another name for love… There is no getting away from the law of love… Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.

Our thoughts from within mixed with the love from within creates the magic force of the Universe. Thought and love merged together, focused correctly, directed purposefully, will lead toward intended desire.

Master Key 12:21 – It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force called the Law of Attraction.

Attract what you want. Merge your thoughts with love.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 11

Thought. The Power of THOUGHT. The power of what you think.

Master Key 11:22 – The recognition of the marvelous power which is possessed by the mind under proper conditions and the fact that this power can be utilized, directed, and made available for the solution of every human problem is of transcendental importance.

Keep the guard at the doorway of your mind ready and able!                                                      Keep the sentry at the gateway to your mind strong and alert!

Direct your thoughts toward your good and your goals, Direct your mind toward your dreams and your desires. You shall receive.

In this life so far I have been successful, UNKNOWINGLY, sometimes getting desires fulfilled.

But from now on what can I accomplish and receive, KNOWINGLY, purposefully thinking my desires to be fulfilled? EVERYTHING.

Master Key 11:31 – Thought reaches its loftiest activity when plunged into its own mysterious depth; when it breaks through the narrow compass of self and passes from truth to truth to region of eternal light, where all which is, was or ever will be, melt into one grand harmony.

I will be conscious of my thoughts and the power they hold. I will guard my thoughts while using them to accomplish my inner and outer greatness.
To do so requires effort. Proper consistent effort. Calm powerful effort.

The Scroll Marked III – I persist until I succeed.

Persistence and direction. The magnifying glass and the compass. There is work to be done. Now understanding and knowing the power of thought demands employing proper action. I am finished with not understanding nor knowing the power of thought while employing improper action. One must act. I must act! Act. Action.

The Scroll Marked III – I am like the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours the tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid; I build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, complete any undertaking.

Thought is an intelligent creative power. Thought is the connection between the material and the divine. The connection between human existence and universal spirit. It is with thought that we pray. Our thinking directs our lives. Thought is the Director. Use it!

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 10

MasterKey 10:1 – Abundance is a natural law of the Universe.

I’m opening my heart and soul toward Abundance! I will manifest abundance, purposefully, daily, knowingly. In the present I will dwell in potential and create the waiting abundance. Abundance awaits. It’s there ready to be enjoyed. Patient, surrounding us without judgement, Universal Abundance is there to swim in like swimming in an ocean of everything.

In the past I have touched and tasted our universal abundance at different moments in my life. I have witnessed it. I have experienced it. I have been fortunate in that I can say, “Yes I know from experience that universal abundance does indeed exist.” It flows, and can be asked for, and can be received. I have experienced that.

BUT!!! But! Unfortunately, I have much more often ignored the possibility, dismissed it, didn’t honor it, didn’t pay attention to it, didn’t trust it. More often I have not been aware of it and have acted in ignorance. Thus I didn’t gain universal offerings and instead eliminated possibilities. It is painful to recognize my usual form of reaction. But it is also freeing and very satisfying to see that this past form of reaction can be and will be changed to a powerful form of action. I am committed to gaining that power. Commit with me everybody.

MasterKey 10:4 – Spiritual power is superior because it exists on a higher plane, it has enabled man to discover the law by which these wonderful forces of Nature could be harnessed and made to do the work of hundreds and thousands of men.

Spiritual power from the Universe is flowing through us. We need to adjust our frame of mind and tap into it. It is there waiting. Waiting to be used. Waiting to shower us with abundance. Use it!! Develop the thoughts in your mind. Sync the thoughts in your mind. Sync the vibrations of your mind with the vibrations of the Spiritual Power. Tap into the Spiritual Power from the Universe.

MasterKey 10:10 – a thought is dropped into the invisible substance of the Universal Mind, that substance from which all things are created, and as it takes root, the law of growth begins to take effect…

MasterKey 10:13 – This creative power depends upon our recognition of the potential power of spirit or mind…

The Mind. Protect it. Guard it. Empower it. Calm it. The Mind. Love it. Use your mind properly and receive the gifts that you deserve. Keep it clean. No negativity allowed. Only Love.

The Scroll Marked II – I greet this day with love in my heart.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 9

MasterKey 9:4 – We have found that the Universal substance is “All Health” “All Substance” “All Love” and that the mechanism of attachment where by we can consciously connect with this infinite supply is our method of thinking. To think correctly is therefore to enter into the “Secret Place of the Most High”

Our method of thinking is where we can connect with the infinite. We must guard our method of thinking. We must have a sentry at the doorway of our thoughts. No negativity and no judgement allowed in. For us to experience “All Health” “All Substance” “All Love” our thoughts must be consumed with “All Health” “All Substance” “All Love”. No negativity. No judgement. Only Love. We must think correctly.

Difficult it is. The poor mental habits are strong. The weak thinking habits are stealthy. The destructive mind habits play tricks. We must get focused to reverse them.

The Law of Substitution – We cannot think about two things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind – try to think about God instead. If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought. Jesus, the Master Teacher, said, “Resist not evil” – meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

Laser observation. Like a ray of sun through a magnifying glass. Stay focused. Turn those negative thoughts around. Keep practicing. Keep at it. It will get easier and you will enjoy the benefits.

The Seven Day Mental Diet – you choose all conditions in your life, when you choose the thoughts upon which you allow your mind to dwell. Thought is the real causative force in life, and there is no other. You cannot have one kind of mind and another kind of environment.

Thought is life. Thought is destiny. Train yourself to dwell in thoughts of the universal. In thoughts of “All Health” “All Substance” “All Love”. You train yourself to do so and “All Health” “All Substance” “All Love” will follow you like your shadow.

You have a negative thought. There it is. It’s there. How long has it been there? No matter. What is it directed at? No matter. It’s simply time to stop it. Change it. Think of something else. Keep practicing. Keep practicing. Change those habits and change your life! Change your life for the better!

The Scroll Marked II – Henceforth I love all mankind. From this moment all hate is let from my veins for I have not time to hate, only time to love. From this moment I take the first step required to become a man among men…. I greet this day with love in my heart and I succeed.

MasterKeyMasterMind – Week 8

To Love Myself, To Love Yourself.

The Scroll Marked II – “And most of all I love myself.”

Loving myself. What a journey life has been to reach this door and feel like I’m opening it for the first time. Liking and loving myself. I’m opening this door anew. Or maybe it’s a new door on old hinges. I mean, I have liked, and even at times have loved myself in the past, but this time it’s different. There’s a new feeling. A different feeling. Deeper. More respectful.

The Scroll Marked II – “And most of all I love myself. For when I do I zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart.”

Now loving myself incorporates being aware of the thoughts that enter my body, mind, soul, and heart. Thought thinking thoughts. Thought is the precursor to everything. As I guard my thoughts I am guarding myself. I am protecting myself. As I guard my thoughts I am loving myself. That’s a new doorway!

MasterKey 8:19 – “You cannot entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong, and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought.”

I am beautiful, strong, and harmonious. I am and I love myself for it. I am as beautiful as a sunset. I am as strong as a mountain. I am as harmonious as a river. To keep my beauty, strength, and harmony as pure as gold I keep the weak, harmful, and negative thoughts outside my realm. That’s love. That’s loving myself.

I’m not cheating the guy in the glass. My love for him is growing. Exponentially. My forgiveness for him is growing. Exponentially. I love myself. I’m recognizing my amazing power. My place as a powerful leaf on the tree of the powerful universe is being understood. That leaf is the tree. My power is the universal power. Flowing through me. And I’m training my mind to go with that flow not against it.

Dhammapada 1.1, 1.2 –                                                                                                                                     Mind precedes all phenomena,
mind matters most, everything is mind-made.
If with an impure mind
one performs any action of speech or body,
then suffering will follow that person
as the cartwheel follows the foot of the draught animal.

Mind precedes all phenomena,
mind matters most, everything is mind-made.
If with a pure mind
one performs any action of speech or body,
then happiness will follow that person
as a shadow that never departs.
