6 months of learning about the old blueprint. Things have changed, thoughts have changed, being more aware has changed. Change is good. Everyday something new shows its head. The truth behind why I am the way I am. To finally know that I am one with the Father and believe it.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
For me this poem, prayer, quote what ever you want to call it seems true to me. To understand that we can let our light shine as children do. Today as I think of where I am and have been for the past 6 years, I need to get my child like faith back in me. As an athlete I worked hard to always start. I wanted to be in the game not on the sideline. I might not have been the best but I made sure on was on the field. Working for a living, I worked hard and fast. I knew payday was when the job was done, not by the hour, but by the job. I lost that ambition the past 6 years. I would work hard and get done fast to get a check, but that is all it was. It was not for the team or company I was working for, it was to put food on the table and pay some bills. The drive to get ahead had been sucked out of me by a failed business and failed relationships with people.
Developing that drive and ambition of a child who wanted to play and win is going to change the future. The past 6 months of the MKMMA coarse has changed the way I think. I have been more service minded of late instead of money minded. I am going to start the Master Keys System over again on my own to get it deep within. This is a life long learning. The tools for change that have been presented to us are incredible. I have not been all in all the time, but I will persist so I can let my real light shine on the world.
As we come into the final couple of weeks of this coarse, I become more aware of things around me and effects of thoughts. Listening to the Science of Getting Rich has made me realize that when I make out an invoice to get paid from work I do, I get in a better mood, or attitude. I can see how much I will be getting paid and when. To think of my goals and where I want to be has to be more visual. Just reading them and not being visual need to be changed. There needs to be a way to invoice myself for my goals as if they are coming, and already on the way.
We have been on this MKMMA journey for 6 months and I am now really starting to understand all the progressions. Being a hard head and not wanting to change makes a slow learner. The video at the end of Mark’s primer video has had a huge affect on me, even though I have seen the movie and speech before. The one thing I fear is not that I will be, but being more powerful than I am. Is that the one thing that hold us all back is being the best we can be. To knock out the golden Buddha and show who we really are. Am I that fearful to show my true nature, the person that I really want to become. Fear keeps us where we are, no progress, coasting and not reaching for the stars.
We have come far in 6 months, I think I will have to repeat the coarse a second time so it really resonates in my very soul. I have a lot to learn and give. Service has not been a strong point in my life. To be a service is a critical part of the Science of Getting Rich. To give is the key. To do things in a certain way requires service. To be rich you must be of service and help other people get rich first. Rockefeller, Carnegie, Trump, Gates have helped others get rich, proves that helping others get rich is evidence. Gates especially in our generation has been a good example of giving and receiving. Here he made billions of dollars, and created many multimillionaires at Microsoft. He keeps giving away billions every year through his charity, and his wealth keeps on rising. This is proof of the law of giving and receiving, without the thought of getting back.
I know that this is a journey, ever changing and becoming. To give and not expect, but to know somewhere some how you get what you give.
And the Truth will set you free. Wallace D Wattle “The Science of Getting Rich”. You must act in a certain way. To know the truth, to do things in a certain way you will get rich. I have been listening to the audio book for the last 4 days. Plus listening to The Science of being Great. These 2 audio books are free to download from Librivox an IPhone apps. I would highly recommend listening to both of them.
I would like to spill my guts and be totally honest on what I discovered about myself from these 2 books. Do I really want the public to know how I have acted in the past? Let me just put it this way, to learn the truth about doing things a certain way will make you rich. That is not how I was taught. I was taught by people who wanted to keep as much money as they could. I learn how to pay in a certain way to certain people. I know why I am the way I am.
Watch the Video it will explain the truth better than me
We are born and for the first few years of our life we have things taking care for us. Soon we become independent and start investigating our surroundings. No care in the world. Just exploring, finding out all about or surroundings, pushing our limits to see how far we can go. As we get older and start learning out what is right and what is wrong, we start to loose some of those curiosities.
When do we learn to become introvert? When do we learn to worry about what others think about us? When do we forget about our bliss?
When we reach high school age and start to feel peer pressure and developing who we are going to be like. Forgetting who the real you is. More experimenting and investigating what we can get away with. Doing things we know are not right. Forgetting or not admitting who we are.
As we venture into the early adult years still trying to fit in and go after that job, career, business, chasing the American Dream. Is it the American Dream or your Dream. Is that gonna make you happy? As we wonder through the 30’s to 50’s changing what you do for a job, business, career still wondering when the Dream is going to come true. You are not happy in present situation, who to blame? Yet you still have this feeling in your gut there is gotta be more to your life.
Still searching outside yourself for what you need. As you continue to search God does answer, you are looking for guidance in your career choice and something gets your interest and decide to take a chance to see what he can teach you. Not the same old motivational stuff. A new way of thinking, a new way of me thinking. Than he offers another coarse and you say what is this going to cost me. The answer is Scholarship, if you do not get kicked out of the program for not complying you get to keep your scholarship. All you have to do is participate and do as they suggest. I made it this far and only 4 weeks left in the coarse and have learned more about myself in the last 5 months than all of the other 52 years.
I know that everything in my life to this point happened for a reason. Mostly how I programmed myself to think, has brought me to where I am today. The daily discoveries, knowing that beliefs in myself are changing, calmness seems to be better. Do I know if I have found my bliss? I really don’t know to know, just going to stay on this new path and going to find out.
The journey is worth it.
Couple of days late on the blog this week. There is a lot of meaning in Hanell this week. “Do not hesitate to aspire to the highest possible attainments in anything you may undertake, for the mind forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will in the effort to crystallize its highest aspirations into acts, accomplishments, and events.”
“An illustration of how these mind forces operate is suggested by the method in which all our habits are formed. We do a thing, then do it again and again, and again, until it becomes easy and perhaps almost automatic; and the same rule applies in breaking any and all bad habits; we stop doing a thing, and then avoid it again, and again until we are entirely free from it; if we do fail now and then, we should by no means lose hope, for the law is absolute and invincible and gives us credit for every effort and every success, even though our efforts and successes are perhaps intermittent.”
So what does this all mean. Go after what you want until it becomes a habit. Concentrate on your DMP and use what you go through to propel you to your goal. This past week has been a challenge. While meditating during the sit I believe I am getting answers to my path. My battles in my head to move forward have been tough. Hold on or let go. I have been holding on to what I have been doing way too long. My need to follow my bliss or keep doing what does not make me happy.
This week will be the big test. Action must happen. I will never know if what I am feeling is my bliss or a passing feeling. God tends to hit me over the head every three years. I am being called in a different direction, but am fighting the call. Time to make the choice and go for the gold.
This week I started to be aware of the better feelings in me. The gratitude cards, writing down a positive conversation with someone have all made a big difference. I feel confidence building ever so slowly. I thinks also the reading this week in Master Keys has been eye opening. Especially the sit exercise this week. To think about where you come from and connecting to Universal Mind. Deep thinking in a calm state of mind opens doors.
I am a week late in reporting on a movie. Finding Joe was a great inspiring movie. The main theme I got out of the movie is it is okay to be different from the pack. Conform to what society wants me to be, go to school get a job and retire in 40 years with 1/3 of the pay, sounds wonderful. I could never fit in this model. I am a deep down rebel. I do not want to conform to society. I was a C student when I was in school.
When you find out what you love to do, and than do that, the Universe begins to brings things to you. There are stories in the movie that people thought they were on the chosen path but it did not seem to make them happy. Some people it took a big change in their life to discover who they are. Divorce, job loss, death, accident of some sort, all created a reason to change. Than some they just decided, no big event, they just knew they needed to do something else.
The Universe could be chasing you also. What you are meant to do keeps showing up in your life year after year and you continue to say no. Or you don’t recognize the opportunity. As I look at my life the one opportunity that keeps coming back at me is Network Marketing. I am done saying no to the Universe. This is my life’s mission than I have to act on it and see what comes to me.
Whether you think good thoughts or you thinks bad thoughts either one is going to happen. I am choosing good thoughts.
Major breakthrough this past weekend. Do you ever get so upset that you just shut down and can not talk or think? It is like your mind stops working. This has taking me years to finally know that I can beat this. The times when this comes over me is in very stressful situations and confrontations. I avoided confrontations when ever possible. For me to keep a conversation going and not go to that place was simply awesome. To know that I can handle confrontations calmly is just a great feeling. My wife is really proud to know that we can talk and it is not her.
The Greatest Salesman in the World this month has us reading the chapter on “I will live this day as if it was my last”. Do we live everyday as if it was our last? I know I don’t. I figure we have a few years yet to get things done. Well that is really a bad way to look at it. What we don’t know is when we are going to leave this planet. Today could be the last, and if it is not I will drop on my knees and give thanks. One of the first things I do every morning is go out and get the paper, and when I do, I look up to God and say thank you for another day. We can not change yesterday and we can not do anything about tomorrow, we only have here and now.
The Master Keys this week goes almost with the same theme. Concentrate on your thoughts, several times a day and see what you think. Thoughts of fear will bring more fear, also will bring disease and ill feelings. Thoughts of joy and happiness will bring more joy and happiness. Thoughts of abundance will bring abundance. This has been working for me lately. Every time I have a thought of lack I immediately start to say abundance abundance abundance, the mind can not hold 2 thoughts at the same time.
Doing the flash cards with what I have accomplished over the years mixed in with gratitude cards, have had a great impact on my attitude. I do feel happier, and excited. Writing down three gratitude’s and one positive conversation from the day has been totally awesome experience. I do believe a big change is coming for the good of all in this group. I have learned so much about myself in such a short time. After 52 years on this planet and to finally know myself and what has created me to be the way that I am. Now being able to change all those beliefs to be the person I was intended to be is simply awesome.
Keep giving Keep growing Thank you MKMMA
