My Week Three Master Key Exerience

Tough Week. I’ve never been to any kind of counseling, or therapy (maybe I should have…LOL) but I can’t imagine ANY therapist getting me to the point of self awareness I am at now.

What do I mean? Well, before MKE, I’d say my thoughts, habits, and actions, basically just flowed like a raging river. They never really took a break, and I basically just went with the flow. Now that I’m saying it, I’ve been going with the flow for 45 years. And hey…it’s not all bad. I’ve got some really wonderful things to say about my life. I’ve got a beautiful, intelligent, sorta funny, and extremely patient, wife.  We have a an amazing, and healthy two year old son, who I thank GOD for every day, several times over!

However, since starting the MKE I’m becoming more and more the observer of my thoughts, and I am constantly catching myself thinking very poorly. But this is a good thing…right?

A while back, I read “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. That book was really good, but I wasn’t ready for it at the time. I would say it was a little “deep” for me. But there was one line in that book that has stuck with me over the years, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot. Tolle said, “the moment you realize you are unconscious, you become conscious.”

I KNOW that there is so much more to come for me with the Master Key Experience, but, even if I get NOTHING else out of this,  I feel it’s been worth it, because I’m observing my mind, and realizing I am actually in control. And yes…I’ve “known” this for a long time.  Heck, I think I first read “Think and Grow Rich” in high school.  But truth be told I’ve shrugged off the HARD WORK of thinking the right way, and I’ve allowed more and more cement to be blobbed onto me, to the point of……I don’t know. Lots of cement. The crazy thing is, I’ve put most of the cement on myself!

It’s not easy doing all the MKE exercises. The shapes, the reading of the scrolls 3x daily, reading the Master Key, reading the Blueprint Builder, the index cards, the blogging, and sometimes just getting on the webinars is a challenge for me because of the time. But….it’s FUN!

It’s starting to come together, little by little. Little things like the index cards, which I KNOW are not little. Man…that is such a great tool. This is funny to me. The other day I was saying “Do It Now” out loud. I must have been saying it for a few minutes, and my two year old son heard me. Now out of the blue, during the day, he’ll just blurt out, “do it now!” It’s awesome! Hope this isn’t cheating, but I also have him helping me find red circles.

Re-training sub-ee is hard work. But like anything else that’s worthwhile (and this might be most worthwhile thing, EVER) it’s sooooo worth it. Still have to chip away at the cement of procrastination. It’s 2am eastern stand time on Saturday morning, which is 4 hours away from deadline for this blog post. But this is improvement for me. There was a time, when I might have just blown off doing the blog post…consequences be damned.

Bye-bye old me! Get the frick out of my way!

My Master Key Experience Week 2

Over the years, I’ve read I don’t know how many “self help” books.  One in particular that I’ve always loved is “The Science Of Getting Rich” by Wallace Wattles. In it,  he says, “There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought-it is the hardest work in the world.  This is especially true when truth is contrary to appearances.”

And week two of the Master Key Experience is kicking my butt and attempting to tattoo that quote, backwards on my forehead, so that I can read it every time I look in the mirror! Actually, maybe that would be a good thing!

The daily reading of two books, and the silent sit, and the blogging, and the other exercises….yikes, I’m not gonna   old blueprint is constantly screaming at me that it’s all too much. It’s not gonna work out.  Maybe this is good for other people, but not you. You don’t have time to do all this.

On and on it goes, it doesn’t shut up. But I WILL make it GIVE UP. I know it will eventually give up. Because doing the work isn’t too much… Being broke is. It will work out… because I am created in God’s image.  Enough said right there. Right? Success and joy and happiness IS for other people. It’s for all people…even me. Especially me! And yes…especially YOU too!

I don’t know about you, but I have a ways to go. For instance: I’m 45 years young. I’ve been a procrastinator probably since coming out of my Mothers womb. I’ll have to ask her, but I bet I waited until the last minute to be born. Even now, with this blog post,  there’s a deadline for when it has to be in. Usually its Friday night. I heard something about the deadline being moved back, giving me some extra time, but I do not know when the new deadline is.  My blueprint was telling me, “you got an extension on the blog deadline. Go to bed and do it tomorrow.” Actually, it’s been saying that to me since this morning when I woke up. I ALMOST listened. But I didn’t. Even though I knew I could put it off, even if it was just another day, I did not. For many people this may not appear as a big breakthrough moment, but for me, it’s kind of a big deal.  That’s a nice chunk of concrete falling off of me.   Guess I’ll forge on. Tighten up my game. Dig in a bit more. Giddy up, as Mark J. likes to say.
