Week 22A – Do you get moody?

Of course you do!

For centuries man believed that his thoughts controlled his action. Then, along came that great psychologist, William James, who said “that actions can control your thoughts …… and your moods.”

So how do I become the master of my emotions? Who better to share it with you that the man himself, Og Mandino.

Today I avoid all negative thoughts of failure and despair by making my actions control my thoughts.  I smile often, I move swiftly, I raise my voice to strengthen my confidence, I make allowance for the moods of others and I refuse to allow any set-back or problems to discolor my day

Week 22 – The antidote to fear

This week I want to start with this quote from Pastor Joseph Prince, The antidote to fear:

“Experts tell us that babies have two natural fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. A study on fear was conducted on 500 adults of varying ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. The results showed that they shared some 7,000 different fears. This means that they must have learnt 6,998 fears since they were born. That is a lot of fears!”

Wow that is really a lot of fears!  One of reasons for that is that according to Part 22 of the Master Key System

thoughts are spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a tendency to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently not to our liking.”

“When our thought has been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibrations which brought about certain results. When our thought has been filled with envy, hatred, jealousy, criticism or any of the other thousand and one forms of discord, certain vibrations were set in motion which brought about certain other results of a different nature, and each of these rates of vibration, if kept up, crystallized in form. In the first case the result was mental, moral and physical health, and in the second case discord, in harmony and disease.

So what is the antidote?

Pastor Joseph Prince explains it wonderfully by using the following verse from the Bible:

1 John 4:18

  1. “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…”

I want to add to this with a quote from Albert Einstein

“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.”

There is NO third option and both have their own results.  I believe the antidote for fear lies in your thoughts and in love.

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

Week 20A – Mastermind

Within the MKMMA Course alliances have been formed between the members in the group and the group as a whole in the form of a Mastermind which are one of the steps to reach your Definite Major Purpose in life.

This lead to me ask Tammy Adams to consider and responding to three thoughts I have concentrating on. The Mastermind took over and she share her thoughts with me that blew me away. All I could say was WOW! Tammy is truely One with the Universal Mind.

With her permission I am sharing her thoughts with you and I recommend you visit her blog and read more about her journey.

To Think is “to be” = What am I pretending not to know?

I believe that I am pretending not to know that I am one with Source Energy. My greatness. I must believe that I am one with the Universal. I must embrace this concept fully in order to exist at my highest level.

To Create is to “do” = What would the person I intend to become do next?

In order to fulfill my purpose, my DMP, I must sit and contemplate I am one in kind with spirit. It is in this knowing that I am able to access my creative powers fully with the ability to problem solve on a level I had not realize before.

To Change is “I am” = When will I begin?

I recognize that I should begin today and not waste another moment. Why? Because I do not know how long I am here on this planet. I must live each day to the fullest, accessing and using my powers of creation to manifest all that I desire (as long as it does not come at the expense of someone’s good).

Thank you Tammy.

Week 20 – Discovering your Higher self!

Have you taken possession of your mind?

Sunday’s webinar made a big impact on me that lead me to the following quote that I want to share with you.

IMG_0754

So why is it important to take possession of your mind?

I need to take possession of my mind so that I can free my higher self from the self created prison called our comfort zone consisting of

Fear,

Guilt,

Unworthiness,

Hurt feelings and

Aanger/sadness.

And how do I do that?

Part 27 of Master Key lesson 20 says the following: “27. Thought is creative vibration and the quality of the conditions created will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess. We must “be” before we can “do” and we can “do” only to the extent to which we “are”, and so what we do will necessarily coincide with what we “are” and what we are depends upon what we “think.”

I need to Think to be and ask myself What am I pretending not to know?

I need to Create by doing and ask myself What would the person I intend to become do next?

I need to Change to the extent to which I am by asking ourselves When will I begin?

To possess my mind I need to spend time in silence in “the sit” and master the Seven Laws of the Mind.

Law of Substitution

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 a reach at the 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.

Law of Relaxation 

Mental effort defeats itself ~ exactly the opposite of physical effort. A relaxed, calm state of mind, is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence.

Law of Practice

Practice makes perfect. The 5Ps – Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance. Our bewilderment of magnificence in others, upon further inspection, finds…as Wooden shares ‘you’ll find most of it is practice, the rest of it is work.’ With practice of the correct things, we improve ~ on the other 6 Laws of the Mind.

Law of Forgiveness

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.

Law of Dual Thought

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

Law of Subconscious

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. Law of Growth Whatever we think about grows. What we forget atrophies.

So what I do will necessarily coincide with what “I am” and what “I am” depends upon what I “think.”

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 – Ask Big!

I had the privilege as part of this course to listen to ‘The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale’ and I gladly challenge you to do the same as I attached it below for your convenience.

Mr. Nightingale made the following statement that inspired the topic for this week’s post.

“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be open to you”

Ask Big!  I want to begin this post by giving you this challenge:

Ask the Universal Mind for big things!

What do you desire to see in your life regarding your family, health, finances and career!  What will you ask the Universal Mind for if you knew beyond the shadow of a doubt it shall be given to you?  What are your dreams, hopes and aspirations?  What would you like to see come to pass in your life?

I want to encourage you to go and sit down and write it down in your journal now.

Don’t just ask for small things.  Ask Big things!  Think Big Thoughts!  Enlarge your faith to believe.

Would you do it right now?

The “I” is spiritual which means you are part of the Universal Mind that creates or manifest your desires.  You have unlimited potential to create any desires you can think of.

So go ahead for “everyone who asks receives, and he/she who seeks finds, and to him/her who knocks it will be opened.”

I leave you with this quote from the book “The Invitation” written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.”

Week 17A – 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.
