Week 5 Master Key Class 2019 / 2020

It has been a good week connecting the shapes and colors with my ppn’s and dmp. I am always pleased when I am aware and recognize the connections.

Working on consciously not giving any opinion, has been a constant starting over. I catch myself stopping and thinking, is that an opinion I am about to spew out or just a thought or something else. I have asked Sandy a couple times this week is that an opinion or a statement. We talk it thorough and depending on how it is stated recognize that it is an opinion or a statement. Once again knowing that awareness is necessary to have an option to make the decision as to how I want to proceed. With the old blueprint or take active thought to respond and impress the new one. I choose the new one.

I always keep my promises.

Week 4 Master Key Class 2019 / 2020

This week it has become even more clear how important it is to create the habit of doing what we say we are going to do. The Service Card is really hitting home, coupled with lesson 4 about not starting something or saying we are going to do something and then not actually doing it.

  1. 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.

I am doing some rewriting, and thinking about what I have written, did I really intend on doing it, or was I just writing it to be writing it? Thinking again about what I really want.

It has been an interesting week.

I always keep my promises

Week 3 Master Key Class 2019-2020

This week we had a last minute notice from the kids, that they would all be at the house for 3 days, arriving the next day. I looked at Sandy and said you recall we have a Dr. Appointment in the morning and you have been waiting for that for 2 months now. She was obviously frustrated that we were only getting a matter of hours notice before they all showed up. I looked at her and said, relax it will all be over with before you know it. Just enjoy every moment you have with them.

So what does all this have to do with the Master Keys. Here you go. I was also a little taken back from the sudden notice and already had the next 3 days well filled up with things I was planning on doing.

So we are sitting around the kitchen table playing games as we always do when the kids are here. I was a not present, my mind was thinking about all the things I should be doing, according to what I already had in mind that I would be doing. Many of those things were projects I was working on for customers and was already behind in timing for there completion. So, there I was sitting with Family and Kids playing games and not there in my mind. All of sudden it comes to my conscious mind; how silly I was being. It was my choice as to how I wanted to respond to what was taking place. I was reacting from the old cement still embedded. I was not being a self-directed thinker that I am. I was reacting from the old blueprint. So right there, in my thoughts, I gave thanks from the awareness, that I was not enjoying the time with the kids and was thinking about all the things I thought I should be doing. Again, I was thankful for being the observer and then consciously making the decision to think how I wanted to think and to be present with the Family and truly enjoy the game and time I had with them. My whole countenance made an almost instant change, my attitude changed, and my feelings changed. The rest of the time, I was conscious, and aware of my thoughts and each time the old nonsense tried to creep in, I shook it off and made the choice to enjoy every moment with them.

Kind of goes hand in hand with what we are studying and reading. We really are the watchman at the gate of our subconscious. We really can choose what we want. We really can be self-directed thinkers, creating the life that we desire, and are designed to be, do and have.

It was a great 3 days with the Family.

I always keep my promises.

Master Key Week 2 2019 / 2020

This week it really hit me when I was reading the lesson, how critically important it is to really become the observer, or the watchman at the gate. All during out waking hours and how important it is to give the subconscious, final directions before we fall asleep.

16. The subconscious mind draws just and accurate inferences from premises furnished from outside sources. Where the premise is true, the subconscious mind reaches a faultless conclusion, but, where the premise or suggestion is an error, the whole structure falls. The subconscious mind does not engage in the process of proving. It relies upon the conscious mind, “the watchman at the gate,” to guard it from mistaken impressions.

Knowing that the subconscious does not recognize, right or wrong, and only caries out the thoughts or orders it is given by design or by default, makes it imperative that we decide what we want, and think only about those things.

I always keep my promises

Reflecting on the last 2 times, I started this journey of self discovery. I am grateful for Mark and Davene and their undying commitment to keep making this experience better and better.

Thank You Thank You Thank You

Week 23 / 24 Master Key Class 2018/2019

4. The forces of life are volatile; they are composed of our thoughts and ideals and these in turn are molded into form; our problem is to keep an open mind, to constantly reach out for the new, to recognize opportunity, to be interested in the race rather than the goal, for the pleasure is in the pursuit rather than the possession.

The last couple weeks have been, a ebb and flow. One day is going really good then, followed by a challenging day. Listening to the chatter in my head, backing off and being the observer, then recognizing, that I am creating all that is happening. One moment I want to run and hide the next I want climb up on a mountain and shout. I see the cement attempting to creep back on and cover up the Golden Budda, then realizing that is just the old making an attempting to not let go. One step at a time, one conscious thought at a time. I am whole, I am perfect, I am strong, I am powerful, I am loving, I am harmonious, I am happy.

I always keep my promises.

Week 22 Master Key Class 2018/2019

The analogy of human life process being  made up of the taking in of  nutrients necessary for the construction of healthy cells and then the breaking down and excreting of the waste material. We find that most of all disease is caused by the failure to properly eliminate the waste. So I see a very good visual of the challenge we have with the primary essence of life “thinking”. It seems that our challenge is not so much the taking in of good thoughts, it is the elimination of the negative or bad thoughts. Then I see that it is choosing and being aware of the choice, to think good thoughts, or thoughts of what we want, not what we do not want.

Our exercise this week, really brings to the forefront that the mistaken thoughts we have that God, Omnipotence, or Infinite is some where out there in the either, is a big mistake, it is closer than our breath, closer than our hands or feet, it is in us, we are it, or a small part of it, however, one and the same. WOW

I always keep my promises.

Week 21 Master Key Class 2018/2019

Awareness is coming faster and more profound, each week. This week reading how our thoughts, with feeling, is for all intents and purposes, the connection, between the Universe, or Infinite Supply, to the desired condition or effect. Much like the wire that connects power  from the source to the end motor, to give it life or motion. The more we keep that  thought about our ideal, connected with feeling, the faster in comes into the tangible. That law is not subjective, if it was I would not want to leave the house, because I would not know how it was going to respond at any given moment. Thus keeping focused on what I want, even if it is intermittent, because it gives us credit for every effort and every success. We just have to keep moving.

The uneducated is dominated by appearance, the aware person is dominated by ideal. Discovering that we all have the same infinite potential and the laws will not be subjective to good or bad, positive or negative. The more important it is to be aware of your dominating thoughts. Once again we should be seeking awareness, the more aware we are the more growth we experience.

I always keep my promises.

Week 20 Master Key Class 2018/2019

Reading this week, the importance of the sit, that it is were perception comes to us. We connect with the infinite, the essence of life, in the silent sit. It becomes more aware to me how important that part of our daily exercises is. Makes me want to go back and start all the exercises over from the beginning, as I am more aware of there importance and the progression of growth that was set up for us.

I am whole, I am perfect, I am strong, I am powerful, I am loving, I am harmonious, I am happy. I always keep my promises.

Week 19 Master Key Class 2018/2019

So in my analytical brain, I am always trying to figure out, how, why, were, what, and then it hits me.

“Of course the way to overcome fear is to become conscious of power. What is this mysterious vital
force which we call power? We do not know, but then, neither do we know what electricity is.
But we do know that by conforming to the requirements of the law by which electricity is governed, it
will be our obedient servant; that it will light our homes, our cities, run our machinery, and serve us in
many useful capacities.
And so it is with vital force. Although we do not know what it is, and possibly may never know, we do
know that it is a primary force which manifests through living bodies, and that by complying with the
laws and principles by which it is governed, we can open ourselves to a more abundant inflow of this
vital energy, and thus express the highest possible degree of mental, moral, and spiritual efficiency.”

I do not need to know what it is, I just need to comply with the laws and principles that govern it. Example is all that we are learning to be self directed thinkers. Silly me always trying to make it difficult, thinking I need to know what it is. What a liberating week, just comply with the laws, and the rest is history.

I always keep my promises.
