Week 20 – The Truth

During the webinar we had a life defining moment with the Albert’s Multiple Choice. We had to decided for yourselves which one of the following we choose.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Without hesitation I choose “as though everything is a miracle.” It did not hit straight away how profound this decision will be until I read paragraph 28 of our Lesson 21 of The Master Key System for this week:

“28. For your exercise this week, concentrate on the Truth. Try to realize that the Truth shall make you free, that is, nothing can permanently stand in the way of your perfect success when you learn to apply the scientifically correct thought methods and principles. Realize that you are externalizing in your environment your inherent soul potencies. Realize that the Silence offers an ever-available and almost unlimited opportunity for awakening the highest conception of Truth. Try to comprehend that Omnipotence itself is absolute silence, all else is change, activity,
limitation. Silent thought concentration is therefore the true method of reaching, awakening, and then expressing the wonderful potential power of the world within.”

During my exercise I asked myself this question: ‘What am I currently externalizing in my environment from my inherent soul potencies(power) and what is the truth of what I am able to externalizing in my environment from my inherent soul potencies?’

I was awaking to this truth I have the power. “Be the miracle!”

The answer is within all of us! Be the miracle you were born to be!

Week 19 – Stop Worrying!

Stop worrying and start thinking of God instead.” This was the thought that entered my mind on the way to work this week. So I took the time to sit and think about it and discovered that this was the reason that was breaking the current of flow.

I went back to the Law of Substitution that says “We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind  - try to think about God instead. If that is too big to reach at that 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.”

The worries I had was negative thoughts that I kept on pondering on and I was trying to solve them with my own power. I returned to the “7 Day Mental Diet” of Emmet Fox and while reading the following passage stood out:

When the negative thought floats into my mind, immediately I turn it out and think something else. Best of all, I think of God as explained in the Golden Key.”

And hear follows the Golden Key:

After reading the Golden key by Emmet Fox I found that as soon as the worry entered my thoughts I decided to Think of God instead because

You do your half, and God will never fail to do His.”

Week 18 – The Journey of Purpose

This week during my sit on Monday I had this thought. What if to be natures greatest miracle on earth was a privilege and you were chosen above all in heaven to be that miracle! And the goal was not to get back to heaven but rather to learn to be truly grateful and happy and help others be truly grateful and happy before you return? That to be conformed to the thinking of the 95% of people is to be part of the average cult that keeps us away being truly grateful and happy.

Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

With this thought constantly on my mind and while reading lesson 18 of the Master Key System by Haanel my attention focused on paragraph 20 that reads:

“20. So with understanding; men are continually making progress in the methods
which they use to come into communication with the Universal Mind and its infinite
possibilities.”

One of those methods are found in paragraph 14 of the same lesson:

“14. Thought is the invisible link by which the individual comes into communication
with the Universal, the finite with the Infinite, the seen with the Unseen.”

This lead me to the amazing video “Jim Carrey’s The Meaning”

What a wonderful message:

“Ask the Universe ” you are the greatest miracle in the world.

Week 17HJ – First find the “Kingdom”

Last week I used part 11 of lesson 17 from the Master Keys as part of my post and I found that this whole week my thoughts were filled with following section:

“that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.”

What is this kingdom and where do I find this kingdom?

This week we went back to lesson 9 and 10 of the Master Key and I spent some time studying it rather than just reading it. It is there that I discovered the “Kingdom.”

I discovered that to enter into the “Secret Place of the Most High” the mechanism we need to use is to consciously connect our correct thinking with this Infinite supply of the Universal substance and the law that we need to obey is “that Thought is an active vital form of dynamic energy which has the power to correlate with its object and bring it out of the invisible substance from which all things are created into the visible or objective world. This is the law by which, and through which all things come into manifestation; it is the Master Key by which you are admitted into the Secret Place of the Most High and are “given dominion over all things.” With an understanding of this law you may “decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.”

There is a passage to the “Secret Place of the Most High” that exists between the Natural world and the Spiritual world and “this passage is hermetically sealed on the natural side. The door is closed; no man can open it, no organic change, no mental energy, no moral effort, no progress of any kind can enable any human being to enter the spiritual world.”

O no, I discovered the way to the kingdom and now the door is closed from the inside and I am standing on the outside. What needs to happen?

The answer was found in part 8 of lesson 10 “so the Universal Mind that reaches down into the human mind and endows it with new, strange, wonderful and even marvelous qualities” and part 14 of lesson 10 goes further and indicates “we must remember that we ourselves contribute nothing to its efficacy as the Great Teacher said: “It is not I that doeth the works, but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the work”. We must take exactly the same position; we can do nothing to assist in the manifestation, we simply comply with the law, and the All-originating Mind will bring about the result.”

The only contribution we must make is that we “create the ideal, and this ideal should be perfect.”

Wow. The “Kingdom” is found by correct thinking.

Week 17 – You are Awesome

What thoughts and emotions enters your mind when you hear the words:

“It time to go to the dentist”

Fear, worry, pain, anxiousness, anger, disappointment and many other destructive thoughts I presume? Well this week was my week for my annual dentist appointment. In the past I allowed these thoughts to enter my mind and by the time I got to the door of the dentist rooms I was paralyzed with these destructive thoughts. I took the decision to make the appointment one of my dots for decisiveness and I also took the decision to replace these thoughts of the past with positive, beautiful thoughts and beautiful words.

My appointment was set down for this morning at 08h00 am. Yesterday afternoon I got the first opportunity to express my beautiful thoughts and words. I got a phone call from a friend inviting me for coffee this morning and after telling him of my appointment he started giving me his opinion of a dentist visit which was different of my new thoughts. After he expressed all his destructive thoughts I smile and said I love my dentist visits seeing that it the opportunity to see my a long time friend (the dentist) and to get my teeth cleaned for another year which I am looking forward to.

Last night I read Lesson 17 of the Master Keys System by Haanel and discovered the following paragraphs.

“16. In realizing great thoughts, in experiencing great emotions that correspond with
great thoughts, the mind is in a state where it appreciates the value of higher
things.

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 selfbelittlement, and you will come into a realization of the joy of overcoming.”

I decided to concentrate on great thoughts and experiencing great emotions in my sit this morning and all the way to dentist. While he was busy checking and cleaning my teeth I filled my mind with beautiful exciting thoughts and BAM. After I thanked him for his awesome service he gave me it felt like I was walking on water as I left his office without any concerns or pain of the appointment. It was a beautiful expierence.

I experienced paragraph 16 and 17 in the way that my ‘mind is in a state where it appreciates the value of higher’ and I ‘come into a realization of the joy of overcoming’.

I found the following to be true.

“26. Every obstacle conquered, every victory gained, will give you more faith in your
power, and you will have greater ability to win. Your strength is determined by your
mental attitude; if this attitude is one of success, and is permanently held with an
unswerving purpose, you will attract to you from the invisible domain the things
you silently demand.”

This was an awesome experience for which I am eternally grateful. But what does it have to do with You being awesome. Well this kind of experiences are available for all of us because you can THINK and you are the greatest miracle in the world.

Enjoy this video of awesomeness.

Week 15 – Look at things in a different way

In this beautiful inspirational chip Robin Williams remind us of the following.

‘to look at things in a different way’

‘even if you think you know something you must look at it in another way’

‘when you read a book don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think’

‘strive to find your own voice, because the longer you wait the less likely you are to find it’

‘breakout’

‘dare to strikeout and find new ground’

I have found on my journey through life that on a daily basis I am confronted by difficulties, obstacles, problems and discouragements that in the past caused a challenge for me but after having the privilege to study the wonderful Lesson 15 of the Master Key System by Haanel and Scroll IV of the Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino I found the opportunity ‘to look at things in a different way’.

In paragraph 7 of Lesson 15 Haanel states:

“7. All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.”

In Scroll IV of the Greatest Salesman by Og Mandino states:

“I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.”

I decided to look at everything as a great opportunity.

Week 14 – Finding your Nemo

The formula that we are taught in our Master Key Course for the extra ordinary change in our life’s is:

DMP + PMA + POA + MMA = Success

Each step is defined as follows:

DMP = Definite Major Purpose

PMA = Positive Mental Attitude

POA = Plan of Action

MMA = Master Mind Alliance

Now this week we were requested to have some family fun and watch one of the following four movies:

Door to Door, October Sky, Rudy or Cool Running’s

I decided to watch Rudy and searched for a week and a half in each of the video shops in my town without success. Then yesterday morning I decided to go and find Cool Running’s and as I finished that thought my life partner Magda turned on the TV and would you believe it Cool Running’s just started on one of the satellite channels.

What you think about will manifest in reality.

That was awesome, so I watched it with my family and a amazing thing happened to me. I found each of the steps mentioned above in the story line and I cried. This emotion I haven’t felt in a very, very long time. Something happened inside me that started a change. It’s amazing.

You have got to watch it. One of the parts that made the biggest impact in my life was regarding not to imitate anybody. Finding your Nemo, finding your true identity.

To determine your Definite Major Purpose in life you also need to find your identity and proclaim your rarity.

The other movie I watched this week that also had the aforementioned principles in the story line was Facing the Giants. The part that had the biggest impact on me was the following story of the two farms that had the same desire for rain and both of them prayed for rain to the Creator. One of them went out to prepare his fields for the rain the other one just kept on praying.

Which one are you …..

We all have a deep hearts desire, a personal calling, that we long for and pray for. Are your fields prepare to receive the rain when the Creator sends it.

I found my identity in the following words.

I am

I leave you with this, the meaning of Cool Running’s, Peace be the Journey…..

Week 13 – Find a way in

This whole week I was pondering the thought provoking statement that the Davene made. Find a way in!

After reading Week 13 of the Master Keys over and over the part of 26 stood out for me.

“26. We can best conserve our interests by recognizing the Infinite Power and Infinite Wisdom of the Universal Mind, and in this way become a channel whereby the Infinite can bring about the realization of our desire. This means that recognition brings about realization, therefore for your exercise this week make use of the principle, recognize the fact that you are a part of the whole, and that a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole; the only difference there can possibly by, is in degree.”

So by recognizing the Infinite Power and Infinite Wisdom of the Universal Mind, and in this way become a channel whereby the Infinite can bring about the realization of our desire.

How do I recognize and become a channel. How do I find my way in?

The answer to this question is found in Part 27 of the Masterkey:

“27. When this tremendous fact begins to permeate your consciousness, when you really come into a realization of the fact that you (not your body, but the Ego), the “I,” the spirit which thinks is an integral part of the great whole, that it is the same in substance, in quality, in kind, that the Creator could create nothing different from Himself, you will also be able to say, “The Father and I are one” and you will come into an understanding of the beauty, the grandeur, the transcendental opportunities which have been placed at your disposal.”

Still something was missing! This lead me to word from Benjamin Franklin with which Week 13 closes:

Increase in me that wisdom Which discovers my truest interest, Strengthen my resolution To perform that which wisdom dictates.” 

I search and I found that these words formed part of the Prayer that he prayed every day as part of his Magic Formula to rid himself of his bad habits. This great man states on page 87 of his Autobiography the following:

“And conceiving God to be the Fountain of Wisdom, I thought it right and necessary to solicit His assistance for obtaining it; to this end I form’d the following prayer, which was prefix’d to my Tables of Examination; for daily use.

O Powerful Goodness! Bountiful Father! Merciful Guide! Increase in me that wisdom Which discovers my truest interest, Strengthen my resolution To perform that which wisdom dictates. Accept my kind Offices to Thy other Children, as the only Return in my Power for thy continual favors to me.” 

My search took me further and I found the following words of Og Mandino:

“Henceforth I will pray, but my cries for help will only be cries for guidance.”

What kind of guidance? “I ask not for gold or garments or even opportunities equal to my ability; instead, guide me so that I may acquire ability equal to my opportunities.”

The “I,” the spirit which thinks is ALREADY an integral part of the great whole, all I can do is pray as Franklin and Mandino did for guidance so that I may acquire the ability to recognize this fact.

Week 12 – Living with in Love

Last week I wrote about the principles of the Law of Forgiveness and the consequences of not forgiving. This week the following sentence in Week 12 of the Master Keys hit home:

” 18. The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power to correlate with it’s object, and therefore to master every adverse human experience, is the law of attraction, which is another name for love. This is an eternal and fundamental principle, inherent in all things, in every system of Philosophy, in every Religion, and in every Science. There is no getting away from the law of love. It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought. Feeling is desire, and desire is love. Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.”

Invincible and impregnated …… what awesome two words. So I did what the Fabulous Davene always do and I consulted the dictionary for the meaning of each.

Invincible – too powerful to be defeated or overcome

Wow thoughts that becomes too powerful to be defeated or overcome, what a amazing idea!

Impregnated – fill with feeling (desire) or quality

Yes, Yes, Yes, thought that becomes too powerful to be defeated or overcome, filled with feeling/desire of love. That’s what I want!

WHY!

I found the answer to this question firstly in the words of Og Mandino at the end of Scroll 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…… If I have no other qualities I can succeed with love alone.  Without it I fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.”

I can be what I will to be ……. I succeed with love alone.

Secondly I found it in the Blue Print-builder that I have been reading aloud once a day 12 Weeks:

I eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success.

I heal the negative thoughts hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism with positive thoughts by developing love for all, in silence and to myself I address each whom I meet and say I LOVE YOU.

Lastly I also found it in the Law of Subconscious defined as:

“As soon as the subconscious accepts the idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand ~ accessing a reservoir of infinite resources”

I impregnate my subconscious love to accept a invincible thought that becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7, to manifest demand ~ accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

I want to close and leave you with this thought “All we need is Love” and who better to say it than The Beatles:
