Week 11 – The Causality Train

“Your life is governed by law – by actual, immutable principles that never vary.

While every effect is the result of a cause, the effect in turn becomes a cause, which creates other effects, which in turn create still other causes; so that when you put the law of attraction into operation you must remember that you are starting a train of causation for good or otherwise which may have endless possibilities. ” ~Charles F. Haanel

This past Wednesday I left the house to buy some things that I needed. My first stop was Target and as I pulled up to the parking lot I made a conscious effort to tell subby to greet the day and everyone I encountered with love in my heart. Afterwards I went to the dollar store and noticed the song on the radio talking about love. Then I pulled up to Walmart and noticed yet another song talking about love. I could tell the source was talking to me and I just smiled and bobbed my head to the music.

When I got out of the car and made my way to Walmart a big pick up truck turned the corner with the windows down and the music blasting. The song playing was Money, Money, Money by Abba. Being the observer that I am now, I immediately contemplated the song. Then the an incredible thought came to mind.

Hearing those two songs on the radio in my car talking about love raised my sense of awareness and made me question this song I just heard about money. I thought of the quote “Money is the byproduct of how many people you help.” This made me think of what we learned in the very beginning of this course, that people focus on the effects instead of the causes. Such a large percentage of the world spends their whole life chasing money or the effect instead of focusing on the cause, which is to help or serve others.

By following Emerson’s “Give more, get more” Law of Compensation you attract things which are harmonious with the source. By placing your focus on the cause instead of the effect, being of service instead of chasing money you are compensated for your efforts and this creates a train of causation for good.

Week 10 – Never Judge a Book by its Cover

There are so many ways to judge other people, and to judge ourselves. When we judge we pretend to be God. This is the grandest delusion in history: man thinking that he is God.[1]

Yesterday my dad and I took a job offer from our cousin to deliver magazines to a bunch of different places for Art Basel in Miami. Towards the end of this long-winded, tiring work of unloading and delivering boxes upon boxes of magazines to different locations throughout Miami Beach my dad and I decided to make a stop at McDonald’s after going the whole day without eating.

Thinking it would be a quick stop, I mean McDonald’s is supposed to be “fast food” right? We were greeted with a long line that didn’t look like it would be moving any time soon. My dad decided to go to the bathroom while I waited in line and suddenly a short man in a ball cap and a tank top with tattoo’s all over his body walks in. My mind immediately judges this person thinking he’s a one of the many homeless people at Miami Beach.

He proceeds to get in line and stands behind me. All of a sudden I hear him singing. The singing gets louder. People in front of start looking back with the look of “this guy is crazy.” He’s singing “No Worries” by Lil Wayne. II start nodding my head as he sings “I ain’t got no worries” as everyone else stares at this guy like he’s a lunatic. My judgement dissipates and I begin to enjoy it as he continues to sing louder in the middle of the McDonald’s.

I finally order, go to the bathroom and come back to the counter to wait for my number to be called. As I wait I notice the supposed homeless guy sitting at the table with his cheeseburger in front of two other guys with ragged clothes and I overhear him say to one of the guys in front of him “God is inside you.” As soon as I heard that I couldn’t contain myself and took a step closer to him and said “That’s right! The Kingdom of God is within man.” He nods in agreement, looks at the two guys in front of him and says “see, this guys gets it.” I notice a tattoo on his chest reading “God is love” and comment on it saying “I like that tattoo. God is love. It’s so true. He is pure love.”

We talk more about God and the paradox of how we are social creatures, yet in order to be one with Him me must seek Him in the silence. We continue to talk for 5-10 minutes as my dad grabs our food and begins to eat at a separate table. I begin to impart some wisdom I’ve learned from the MKE course and he starts to laugh in agreement. He then mentions how laughter is the greatest medicine and thanks me for making him laugh. His energy is so amazing and pure I ask him if we can exchange phone numbers to keep in touch and he says yes. We then shake hands and part ways and I go to the table where my dad is sitting. I take a seat and notice the puzzled expression on my dad’s face. He looks me in the eyes and tells me “someday you’re going to tell me what that was all about.” and I just smile and laugh.

Everyone there including myself were so quick to judge this man based on his appearance. Then he does something out of the norm and begins singing in front of everyone and now numerous more begin to look at this guy like he just got released from a mental asylum. Thankfully, I was able to be “the observer” of my thoughts and dismissed my initial judgement of him and soon after I began nodding my head to his singing. Immediately I thought to myself “this guy isn’t crazy at all, he’s just having fun.”

Then what do you know, I find him spreading the word of God with other people and I end up having a wonderful conversation with this man. Afterwards I am disappointed in myself for initially judging him, but so thankful that I was able to be “the observer” and dismiss my initial judgment because as they say, “If you judge a book by its cover, you might miss out on an amazing story.”

“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

Week 9 – Finding Solitude in a World Full of Noise

Solitude – the state or situation of being alone.

Nikola Tesla, the Serbian-American physicist, engineer, inventor and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electrical supply system said,

“No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born.”

In a world full of noise, it is tough to find solitude. Not only is it tough, but it also goes against the norm. Solitude calls us to confront ourselves; to learn who we really are and what we can rely on. God wants to speak to us, but in order to hear him, we have to be willing to listen.

Just listen. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. You see, we live in a loud world, and often God speaks quietly.

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the  mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. (1 Kings 19:11-12)

There in that whisper, was the voice of God.[1]

God wants to speak to us about who He has called us to be and what He has called us to do, and to ignite a mandate on our lives, but what is required is separation to our inner room.[2]

So many of us are afraid of silence and petrified by solitude, but we need some silence and solitude to sit with God and work out who we are, what we are here for, what matters most, and what matters least, so that we can make great decisions in our lives. We need that.[3]

These past few weeks I have struggled to set time to sit with God and enjoy the silence. I have gone on walks and marveled at his beautiful creations, but I have not set time to listen to His voice. Then this morning, I was flipping through my prayer book and fell upon this page that slapped me in the face and reminded me what I was missing in my life.

[Jesus spent long days healing and preaching to the people. At the same time, however;] he would go away to lonely places, where he prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Among his scientific achievements, George Washington Carver produced 300 useful products from the lowly peanut. Among these were shampoo and ink. One day, author James Childers asked Carver for the secret behind his achievements. Carver said that he made it a point to rise each morning at four o’clock. Then he said, “I go out into the woods. There in the early morning stillness, I listen to God and to his plan for me.” Carver was merely imitating Jesus, who followed a similar practice of harmonizing work and prayer.

Since I’ve begun praying on a daily basis, how has it affected my everyday work? My relationship with other people?

One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude. ~Carl Sandburg[4]

I have always known George Washington Carver for his many uses of the peanut. His work has always been made known in school and in references in movies and TV shows, but NEVER did I ever hear how he came about his inventions. As soon as I read that passage everything clicked. It befuddles me how many great thinkers have used this method throughout history to create things, yet America is greatly lacking in this method of creativity. Heck, even Superman, America’s greatest, most powerful superhero has his own fortress of solitude that he retreats to, to escape from the world and speak to his father, Jor-El.

Jesus, though lacking a fortress, frequently sought out a place of solitude as well. He continually withdrew from people, daily life activities, and the demands of his ministry to be alone with the Father and pray. The priority of Jesus’ solitude and silence is everywhere in the Gospels. It’s how he began his ministry. It’s how he made important decisions. It’s how he dealt with troubling emotions like grief. It’s how he dealt with the constant demands of his ministry and cared for his soul. It’s how he taught his disciples. It’s how he prepared for important ministry events. It’s how he prepared for his death on the cross.[5]

The miracles that Jesus performed were so unbelievable and extraordinary that many of us miss the time he spent in solitude and silence before each key event.

“[Despite Jesus’ plea that his miracles be kept secret] the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” (Luke 5:15-16; see also Mark 1:45)

Jesus’ solitude is how he went deeper in his love-relationship with the God he knew was Abba. Jesus invites us to join him.[5]

My challenge to you and to myself today is to find a room or a place where you can be alone and undisturbed; sit erect, comfortably, but do not lounge; let your thoughts roam where they will but be perfectly still for at least fifteen minutes. Don’t place great plans or expectations on those fifteen minutes. Just sit with Him for fifteen minutes. Just be with Him in the silence.

It may be uncomfortable at first. That’s natural. You will want to leave after a few minutes. That’s natural too, because we live in a world that says we always need to be active. But being with God is like atomic energy: a contraction that produces an expansion. We draw back from the world (contraction) so that we can live more fully in the world (expansion).[3]

God doesn’t want you to live in your past and he certainly doesn’t want you living in your fears. God wants you to live in his power NOW.[3]

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. (Matthew 6:6)

Say with me:

“I am the son/daughter of a great king. He is my father and my God. The world may praise me or criticize me. It matters not. He is with me, always at my side, guiding and protecting me, I do not fear because I am His. Father, guide my words, thoughts, and actions so that I can live my best life and become the-best-version-of-myself.”

May you discover your own fortress of solitude and find peace and solace in God’s wondrous, gentle, loving, all-embracing silence.

He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)

Week 8 – Live Like You Were Dying

Life has been so good these past couple of weeks. So many things have been manifesting themselves before my eyes and I have been filled with so much love that as the analytical person that I am it is difficult for me to just type away and not worry about it being the perfect blog post.

In our zoom meeting we had today with our tribe one of our members, Amy I believe tossed out the idea of just writing whatever is on your mind and publish it in order to keep the habit going, so that is what I decided to do today. I will come back and edit this during the week because I have so many incredible stories to tell and share with you guys, but honestly the most important things for me has been sticking to these following principles.

Give more, get more.

Greet each day with love in your heart.

Love yourself.

Live like you were dying.

Week 7 – Start Your Day Off With A Smile

As part of our reading of the 7 Laws of the Mind, the Law of Forgiveness states:

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.

After reading this I sat contemplating on this law and thought of how electricity works.

It is a common misconception that electricity takes the path of least resistance. Electricity in fact takes all paths that complete the circuit. The amount of current in each path is given by I=V/R. So the path of least resistance will have the most current flowing through it, but all paths do get some current depending on their resistance.

This really opened up my mind as to how the Universal Mind and the Law of Compensation works.

In Chapter 4 of Haanel’s Master Key System he says

21. The more we give the more we shall get; we must become a channel whereby the Universal can express activity. The Universal is constantly seeking to express itself, to be of service, and it seeks the channel whereby it can find the greatest activity, where it can do the most good, where it can be of greatest service of mankind.

Fortunately I have been blessed with an incredible family that instilled tremendous moral values in me. I have had such amazing role models growing up that a majority of my life the channel to the source has been clear, even when I knew nothing of it. It has always been in my nature to give and help people because of my upbringing and this week because of my channel being so clear and my heart being open to God I was fortunate to experience God express Himself in all of His infinite glory.

You see several weeks ago I put up a picture on my Snapchat story of an omelette my mom made me with a ketchup designed smiley face on it with a caption under it that read,

“Start your day off with a smile.”

Many of my friends saw it, but the only one that replied was one of my friends and former baseball teammate in college who I hadn’t talked to in months.

He’s currently going to school in Oklahoma and I’m living in Florida and immediately after he commented on my Snapchat story he brought up some things that were very similar to what I was reading in the Master Key. As soon as I hear him saying these kind of things I tell him, “I have to call you man” because there’s not many people I know that I can have these spiritual and philosophical conversations with.

So I call him up on October 26th and we talk for hours. This leads to frequent calls and texts every day proceeding that where we spend literally hours and hours sharing our perception of the world now and our every day encounter with the Universal.

Then on November 6th I get a text from him asking me

“What’s on the agenda?”

I answer saying “I’m packing for my flight tomorrow.”

He replied “I’m packing for Florida.”

My immediate reaction was like Elaine from Seinfeld when she says “Get out!”

He says “I promise. My brother is getting married in Key Largo and I’m leaving tomorrow.”

So I ask when and where he’s flying in. He tells me he’ll be flying in to Fort Lauderdale around 10:30am. I feel like Elaine again “Get out!”

I tell him that I’m flying out of Fort Lauderdale at 11:50am. I start getting all excited at the thought of seeing my friend. I keep thinking about it and tell him “I’m gonna see you tomorrow, I just know it. I can’t believe it!”

So tomorrow comes. All I know is he’s getting there around 10:30am and I’m going to see him. I get to the airport around 10am, check my bag in and play the waiting game.

Twenty minutes go by and it’s 10:30 now so I give him a call and it goes straight to voicemail. I send him a text, no response. I figure he’s still in the plane. It’s 11am now and still not a word from him. I’m starting to cut it close for my flight. I decide to ask the people at Southwest if they could tell me if a plane from Oklahoma has landed in Fort Lauderdale. They do their best to help me, but to no avail. I go back to my seat and it’s close to 11am now. My brother is there with me and starts to get nervous for me saying you’re going to miss your flight. I’m still relatively calm, but some nervousness begins to settle in.

Finally around 10:50am I get a text “Just landed.” I get all excited! I call him up, he answers and says he’s leaving the plane. I ask him what gate are you coming out of and he tells me Gate B6.

I lose it! I’m in utter disbelief! Why you may ask? Of all the different airlines and gates in the airport I have to go through Gate B6! Are you kidding me!?!?!

I tell him to hurry his ass over to baggage claim. He then had the nerve to tell me that he had to go to the bathroom first. I’m like “hold it man! I have to go or I’ll miss my flight. He says sorry and goes to the bathroom while I wait anxiously at the bottom of the stairs at baggage claim. I call him back, it’s around 11:10am (my flight leaves at 11;50am and I still haven’t gone through security) and I tell him to come to baggage claim at B6 and you’ll see me at the bottom of the stairs. About a minute goes by, but it feels like eternity.

I keep my eyes fixed at the top of the stairs and out of the corner of my right eye appears my friend Wade

I can’t contain myself! I’m smiling from ear to ear as I wait for him to make it down the stairs and give him the biggest hug!

We talk more than we should. I tell him I have to go. We say our goodbyes and before we go we take a picture together.

IMG_1435

I rush my way to and through security, speedwalk to the terminal, make the flight and spend the rest of the day astounded at how everything lined up so perfectly.

Trying to make sense of it all I thought of Tim Tebow when he helped the Broncos beat the Steelers in overtime in what is known as “The 3:16 Game”

At the post game press conference the reporter says

‘Timmy, did you realize what happened?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, we just beat the Steelers. We’re going to play the Patriots.’ And he was like, ‘No, do you realize what happened?’ I was like, ‘Alright, Patrick, what’s up?’” Tebow shared.

“He said, ‘It’s exactly three years later from the day that you wore John 3:16 under your eyes,’” Tebow continued. “I was like, ‘Oh, that’s really cool.’”

“He said, ‘No, I don’t think you realize what happened. During the game, you threw for 316 yards; your yards per rush were 3.16; your yards per completion were 31.6; the ratings for the game were 31.6, and the time of possession was 31.6,’” Tebow shared.

“And during the game, 90 million people had already Googled John 3:16, and it was the number one trending thing on Facebook and Twitter,” Tebow continued. “And a lot of people will say, ‘It’s coincidence.’ I say, ‘big God.’”

…and it all began by simply starting the day off with a smile :)

Week 6 – Or You Can Quit

So it’s week 6 of my Master Key Mastermind Alliance Experience. Apparently I like doing things in three’s here. My first post was in week 3 and now my second is in week 6. I noted my struggles in my previous post in week 3 and to my disappointment I have continued struggling.

Vader

I called my mentor during Week 5 for help and he suggested that it may be best to put my focus on Go90Grow as he actually did just that his first time going through the MKMMA, but left it as a suggestion and put it in my hands to make the decision.

I thought and I thought and I thought and on October 27th I made the decision to email Dayna and thank the entire MKMMA team for their course, for all the lives that they’re changing and for their incredibly amazing love and support for all. After thanking them,  I said with great sadness that it would probably be best for to drop the MKMMA course because of lack of money and focus on Go90Grow.

Then the next day I get this response from Dayna

“It is as simple as do you want to quit or do you want to stay? Will you commit to doing the work or will you get discouraged and stop? I can postpone your PIF, you can do Go90Grow and MKE at the same time and have a compounding effect or you can quit one and focus on the other. It is your decision, your commitment and your promise. What do you want to do?”

The words that stood out to me the most as if they were in bright bold red letters were

“or you can quit”

I had mentioned in the email before to Dayna that “I truly believe that I did not find this course on the internet by accident.”

When I read the words “or you can quit” I had a gut wrenching feeling in my stomach. I knew I was meant to follow through with this and I thought of the quote of the great Vince Lombardi

Lombardi

I knew in my heart that I was destined to follow through with this course this year, not next year or any year after that. I thought deeply of what I should do. I wanted to say yes, but I was scared to fully commit and risk not being able to stick to my promises and most of all come up with the money to pay. I have been struggling with my business and it just seemed like there were no signs of any money coming in any time soon. I was growing impatient and grew scared that the money wouldn’t come in. I was so fixated on the idea that “I had to make money” it was eating me up inside. Thankfully with the help of my mentor and some friends I let go of the attachment I had to making money and left it all in God’s hands.

I went back to the basics and remembered “The Law of Compensation” which summed up in four words is simply “Give more, get more.”

I focused on giving more and one way or another I would in turn get more. As long as I was in harmony with the source, the source would eventually provide. And so I mustered up the courage to fully commit to the Law and the course and followed up with Dayna with this message.

“I promise to do the work regardless of any circumstance that may arise. I have lived as an onion plant. It has not pleased me. Now I wouldst become the greatest of olive trees and in truth the greatest of salesman. I always keep my promises, Danny Muniz.”

I was then asked to pick a day to pay for the pay-it-forward scholarship and I came up with the following

“I promise I have an additional $100 or more in cash on or before November 7th, 2017 in exchange for a service I provide for a fellow brother or sister. I always keep my promises, Danny Muniz.”

With my promise set in stone, I began look for jobs on craiglist and came across one with the offer of cleaning up a person’s yard for $100. I thought to myself that this would be the service that I promised and that it would soon manifest itself into reality. The person contacted me saying they wouldn’t be available till Saturday November 4th, but if I was still interested. Of course I said yes.

Back up to Wednesday November 1st and my dad asked me if I could buy a microwave glass turntable tray on ebay with my card because the one at the house broke. It came out to $17.52. My dad promised to pay me back. I was indifferent about it and just said ok, whenever you want to, expecting some time this year to get $20 back.

Today is November 2nd and I have been making it a point to listen and sing to uplifting music as I walk around the block. I spent over 30 minutes walking, singing and even doing some dancing to my playlist. The whole time I marveled at the beauty of God’s creation and admired the sky, the clouds and the trees. The combination of Og Mandino’s Chapter of Love, the beauty of the earth and uplifting music brought great joy to my heart.

As I made my walk back home a car stopped at my driveway, rolled the window down and asked to help her with directions. She was having trouble pulling up the directions on her phone and I could sense her frustration. I told her where I believed the house should be and then asked her for the directions and I input it on my phone, showed it to her and she thanked me and drove away.

As she drove away, the joy in my heart grew even bigger. Yes, what I did was so simple, but it felt so good. I served someone. As I walked into the house with this glowing spirit inside, my dad told me there was a letter on my bed for me. I proceeded to go to my room, I grabbed the letter, picked it up and saw a green piece of paper with the number 100 in gold staring right back at me.

100

All I could do was smile and laugh. Yes, I know, I know my dad gave it to me. I honestly didn’t want to count it as the $100 I asked for. However, I never asked or told him about the $100 and he has no idea about the Master Key course I’m doing. Like I said before, I was just expecting $20 back at some point. I stood in my room for a good second just smiling and laughing. My promise had manifested itself into reality. Plus I still have the opportunity of making another $100 this weekend.

Now this isn’t the first time something like this has happened to me. In fact I gave an entire speech on so-called coincidences that have happened to me not too long ago in college, but I just had to document this one for this course. It reminded me that all life and power is from within. The infinite source of life that flows through you; is you. Its doorways are but the faculties which comprise your consciousness. I let the world without dictate my thoughts and feelings in the world within and closed the doors instead of keeping them open.

One of my favorite high school teachers once told me “Life is simple, not easy.” But you know what? Even though it’s hard, it’s worth it! It will most likely be a difficult road but once you start it, don’t turn back. The struggles here and there are but a small price to pay for the happiness and success that is yours and mine.

The wise Charles Haanel in Chapter Four of his Master Key System states

12. Unless you do this, you had better not start at all, because modern psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure; absolute, ignominious failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your mind to do something, do it; let nothing, no one, interfere; the “I” in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast, there is no longer any argument.

So when the time comes and the going gets tough and you’re presented with two choices where

you can be a winner or you can quit

Do yourself a favor and go to the guy in the glass, look him straight in the eye and tell him

chuck norris winner

because it’s worth it!

 

Week 3 – Back to the Future

It’s week 3 of my Master Key Experience, but first

“We have to go back Marty!”

It’s late August of 2017 and I’ve been spending countless hours on youtube looking for tips to help me with my business. The things I was doing just wasn’t working and I knew in my heart there was another way. Then one day I come across this guy on youtube standing on the beaches of Hawaii with a Boston accent telling me things that go against everything I had ever heard from so called “self-help gurus”. As a person that has always been open to opposing viewpoints, I was intrigued. Soon I was watching all of this guy’s videos. It didn’t take long for me to hear about the Master Key Experience and I immediately signed up for it. I was excited to say the least!

It’s September 8th and I get an email with the subject line “The long lost treasure that transformed my career…and over 2137 people too.” “I know, it sounds kind of dramatic.” Mark J says and I agree, but you know what? I believe him. So I click on the link for the first of the three introductory videos for the Master Key Experience and I was hooked! The concepts Mark J shared blew me away! I thought I heard and seen it all in regards to self-help books and videos and in less than an hour Mark J flipped the script upside down. It didn’t take me long to watch all the videos, fulfill my requirements and by the first day I received my scholarship. I was so excited!

Then came the first Q&A webinar and I stayed online with the hope that I would be able to talk to Mark J and sure enough I did. Any little doubt I may have had about the course were wiped clean because I had a real conversation with Mark J himself. No one would be able to convince me now that this was a scam.

I got all my materials, printed everything out, got the book ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World’ in the mail, I was ready to hit the ground running for Week 1 of the Master Key Experience.

“Marty you gotta come back with me.”

“Where?”

“Back to the future.”

It’s week 3 of my Master Key Experience and man…

This-is-heavy-doc

It has been such a struggle for me to do all the readings and the SIT’s everyday. I didn’t realize how bad my bad habits were. Over the past 3 weeks I hadn’t had one single day where I completed every task required for the day. I felt like such a bum or as Mr. Strickland would say…

Image result for a slacker back to the future

It’s October 13th now and I’ve gone 4 days in a row  completing all of my tasks, including the SIT’s. I may have been a slacker, but it doesn’t mean I’ll always be one.

The road to self-discovery may be a long and difficult journey, but

“Where we’re going…we don’t need roads.”
