Week 4 – the Magic of Action

Week 4 – the Magic of Action


Image result for thinking is the hardest work there is images

Making clear distinctions and wise choices – moving forward with confidence in my inner compass and recognition of the soul’s (subby – slippery subby sometimes!) impulse within my life.

My collective challenge and opportunity has been to surrender the illusions that has kept me cocooned in assumptions and limitations. And, like the caterpillar, dissolve into my imaginal self and redefine the world envisioning a future that welcomes the butterfly.
Some powerful extracts from this week’s Master Key extract have been…
MasterKey 4 Intro -
Life is expressive …and it is our business to express ourselves harmoniously and constructively

MasterKey 4:12  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..

 

MAsterKey 4:14…the “World Within” controls the world without…. become irresistible..”

I wonder what would happen if everyone released themselves from trying to manipulate their outer world..  Their inner worlds could rest and be at peace. Imagine the ripple on effect..

Cultivating the inner observer and developing the capacity for focused attention is a means of exploring more deeply the source of fixed beliefs, habitual behaviors, and areas of resistance.   Internal inquiry is a very personal, heart-felt process to know myself and discover the nature of my intrinsic core. As I become Soul-centric (look out subby !)  I watch my worldview shift in miraculous ways..

MasterKey 4:17 …”Amid all the mysteries by which we are surrounded, nothing is more certain that that we are ever in thepresence of an Infinite and Eternal Energy from which all things proceed.”

MasterKey 4:24….. seek the Silence frequently. Power comes through repose. It is inthe Silence that we can be still, and when we are still, we can think, and thought is the secret of all attainment.

The Silence is a physical stillness – deep.. peaceful… nurturing…rejuvenating… space for thinking.

Thought is spiritual energy carried by the law of vibration vitalised by the law of love.

Love is the activation of my spirit reaching out to make connections. It overcomes grief, harbors no ill will and heals all separation.

Love is a vibrational frequency. It is the feeling nature of my soul and clear connection to avery deep essence. Tuning into this frequency nurtures a closer relationship to my true self.

Love is not something we own. It’s something we are.  Extending this essence to a being,  a community,  a space, or critter  taps into a luminous mystery – “that mysterious essence that never sleeps” -  in the core of my being and ripples out from there in a rainbow of passionate joye..

Back to thought.. :) thought takes form by the law of growth.

Recognition of our spiritual nature develops the faith, courage, and enthusiasm which results in accomplishment.

Thinking is the first step to self control, self mastery.

 

Its creative power is a form of spiritual activity.  My interior orientation shifts my worldview..  In Alice in Wonderland the Queen scoffed at the notion of impossible.. What if I adopted her strategy and thought 6 impossible things before breakfast… ?

We always get what we give and this service is the secret key to power.

So..

for this coming week,

discernment illuminates my adventure.. My heart and mind discern and embrace the presence of my essence because what I think, or do, or feel, is an indication of what I am.

And as J K Rowling said: “We have the power to imagine something better…”

Week 3 tender is the soul in change

“Show me the heart of a man and I will tell you the world he lives in..”

“Tender is the soul in change”

TheMaster Key, Part Three..

You have found that the Individual may act on the Universal, and that the result of this action and interactio nis cause and effect. Thought, therefore, is the cause, and the experiences with whichyou meet in life are the effects…. When you realise this, you will have found a source of power which will enable you to take care of any situation inlife which may develop.

This week was about integrity for me..
Standing up for what I believe in.                                                                                                        Acting in congruence with my values and following through on my commitments.

Once upon a time, much of what I  learned about life was outside-in from my parents, schools, cultures and (sub-conscious) decision-responses to my experiences.  These informed my beliefs and assigned meaning to my actions, often not in alignment with  who I was inside.  Adopting that stance set me up to constantly look outside myself for whatever I felt might be missing, causing me to mis-take and mis-place my power.

It created an unfolding story that ruled my life, deep from within, that held me locked in a circuitous loop of endless repetition,

falling,

falling,

falling…… lost… entrapped, a prisoner in my past, chained to the endless repetition of my ‘life-sentence’ and deeply mystified as to why no matter what I did, or how hard I tried, the same events, masquerading in slightly different garb,  kept gate-crashing my life..

Today I hear a lot about paradigm shifts, which are simply changing our world views – the bulk of it is mere lipservice and regurgitated rhetoric.  We accept that we create the reality we think exists, by the way we connect our beliefs, values, and perceptions together.

Our filters do not allow us to see ‘what we do not believe exists’, which basically includes everything outside of our ‘box’.

Ohhh my gosh..
back to my DMP – definite .main purpose –  and a personal check for myself that it is a MTP too – massive transmutational purpose, from a global-centrically perspective – that I dedicate my energy to with laser precision power and determination.

I decide that I have the girlballs to exclude everything else.

I adopt a new world view which is (w)holistic – global-centric ; one world, one body that includes all life on the planet and the planet itself. What I do affects the whole, what you do affects the whole, not just the one or me (me-listic/ self-centric) or the few-listic (local-centric); family, friends.
Changing my world view is a paradigm shift; from me-listic and few-listic to wholistic or another way of labelling it is self-centric to cosmo-centric.. think in terms of my (and our) world as circular – what goes around comes around – rather than linear, straight lining, never to return to me.  The rise of awakening to a sense of re-membering and meaning that guides my life is accelerating.

Image result for images seedI can no longer ignore my own truth as it arises and act from old habits, strategies, and patterns. Cultivating my interconnectedness and awareness of the subtle forces that pass between us gives me (and you and us) new capabilities and allows solutions to arise that have not yet been recognized.

“The principles I am studying require a special and specific kind of mental effort that involves ” carving and sculpting new mind pathways”.   I transcend my conditioned mind, do a deep-dive into this rigorous undertaking, overcome my reluctance and inertia and discover the most wonderful awe-inspiring exciting adventure of my life.. 

So…  holding Integrity as my ‘aligning’ focus for this week I sculpt a world that reflects my highest values and deepest inner desires.
It’s a world of prosperity, as always..
If prosperity is an abundance of all the things I (gently and tenderly) hold ideal in my mind and dear to my heart, then all I need to do is ‘tweek’ refine my inner story and game I play to see it ripple out into my external world.
… and cartwheels of joye !
I fall deeply, head-over-heels,  in love with my DMP..
Imagine that !”</p

Week 2 Acceptance is a gift

Let the mist of unworthiness evaporate. Move forward and embrace life as it presents itself to me… practice the art of inclusion and allowing.

** * this includes my good intentions .. :)

______________________________

Self-acceptance is a gift of internal belonging that embraces who I am and who I am not. It widens my perception so that I can include the many paradoxes of life.

Acceptance reduces the conflict levels inside and around me and invokes change. It releases me from the struggle against reality and then new possibilities can open up to me that did not exist before.

Acceptance frees up my energy.    It zoomss through the forgiveness quagmires and focuses on the simplicity of what is. . It is a benediction, a blessing, a gentle rain that melts judgments, fears and doubts, and allows me to surrender to the truth of the moment without preferences.

It animates the big picture, welcomes a higher reality, and extends an invitation to embody my Human nature and my greater Being nature – in doing so, conflict ceases and I  become one presence.

I look for experiences that I am rejecting or pushing against.  If acceptance does not seem possible, I practice relaxing my protective response that splits perceptions into division of right/wrong, good/bad, guilt/innocence.

The principles I am studying require a special and specific kind of mental effort that involves ” carving and sculpting new mind pathways”.   I transcend my conditioned mind, do a deep-dive into this rigorous undertaking, overcome my reluctance and inertia and discover the most wonderful awe-inspiring exciting adventure of my life..

I joyfully sparkle my magnificence.                                                                                                                              My mind unlocks from its fixations.                                                                                                    Acceptance wrap its wings around me and hugs me tightly filling me with acceptance and then I offer it freely to all I meet.

Life is a gift, for giving, for-giving, forgiving.

I remember to give to myself too…

A few  reflections on willingness – my theme for this week..

I use my will skillfully to enhance the creative process rather than inhibit it.

Willingness is an inner alertness that magnifies the connecting point between my human and divine natures. It is the practice of steadiness, receptivity, readiness, and response — not necessarily in that order.

It means I may upset the status quo, both within myself and others – hah! hang onto my knickers for the knickers for the flight ofmy life -  challenging movement beyond current ways of thinking. Remember, not only my outer worldly selves are in a constant state of evolving, but so is my inner spiritual self as I realize what it means to belong to a higher world.

New ways of welcoming the unfolding present moment results from letting go of arrogance, pride, and resistance; all rooted in my shame. There are things that want to happen in the natural flow of life. Nothing of substance can be forced into existence.

Willingness encourages perspective and opens me to my  inner guidance allowing a clearer knowing of when the moment is right to act. Willingness brings ease and grace into my lives, my interactions, and into the times in which I live.

The principles I am studying require a special and specific kind of mental effort that involves ” carving and sculpting new mind pathways”.   I transcend my conditioned mind, do a deep-dive into this rigorous undertaking, overcome my reluctance and inertia and discover the most wonderful awe-inspiring exciting adventure of my life..

I joyfully sparkle my magnificence.
