Master Key Experience Week 17

My takeaways this week are quite enlightening. My images are observations of abundance, freedom, and awareness of  the beauty of nature.  In studying Lesson 17, here is my summary.

We of the twentieth century worship a God of Love in theory, but in practice we make for ourselves “graven images” of “Wealth,” “Power,” “Fashion,” “Custom” and “Conventionality.” We “fall down” before them and worship them. We concentrate on them and they are thereby externalized in our lives.

The student who masters the contents of Part Seventeen will not mistake the symbols for the reality; he will be interested in causes, rather than effects. He will concentrate on the realities of life, and will then not be disappointed in the results.

KEY WORDS: Worship, symbols, five senses, spiritual insight, vibrations of the mind, concentration, intuitive perception, immediate insight, mind, magnet, subconscious, spiritual truth, desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your own, desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature.

Vibration is the action of thought; it is vibration which reaches out and attracts the material necessary to construct and build.

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.If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.

If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.

If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.

Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form.

My word for 2018 is SIMPLIFICATION.

My focus is ABUNDANCE.

Master Key Experience Week 16

In 1916, according to Charles Haanel in the master key, part sixteen, “there are many who think that the world is just bout to pass out of the sixth period; that it will soon enter into the seventh period…”

In 2018, according to my calculations, the world we live in is smack dab in the middle of the seventh period of the Septimal Law – the period of readjustment, reconstruction and harmony.

What a revelation!

Where do you stand right now at your current age?

SEPTIMAL LAW: YOU’RE USING THIS LAW AND MAY NOT EVEN KNOW IT

“And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy…”— Genesis 2: 2

In a survey of the world’s favorite number, 7 was rated the highest. No surprise, right?

Being the world’s favorite number, people haven’t begun to truly understand how this powerful number operates in all of their life. So mystical that God used it in the 7 day creation plan and to this day, humanity operates on this 7 day week schedule. For most, this is just a number, but it’s not. It’s a law.

The Septimal Law (also known as the Law of Sevens or Law of Periodicity)  states that the progression of life goes in 7 cycles. Every 7 years you enter into a new life cycle. Biology (and Stanford School of Medicine) states that every single cell in your skeleton regenerates every 7 years. This means that you, biologically, are a brand new person every 7 years! The beauty of knowing this is that you can consciously become who you want /choose to be while still being in alignment with the law.

Each 7 year cycle has its own characteristics. Often times when sudden or overwhelming difficulties may appear in life, knowing this law can be helpful. For some, it may not be important for you to know about this, life can be swell for you because you are naturally readjusting and growing when life experiences call you to do so. In any case, after some research, here’s a theory on how it goes:

TRAONAH’S 7 YEAR LIFE CYCLE THEORY 1st Phase: Physical – There is a focus on securing a home, possessions, family, good reputation, friends and to be apart of a community.

0-7 Infancy: Newness and discovery.

7-14 Childhood: Activity and vigorous development.

14-21 Adolescence: Education, ethics and heighten sexuality.

21-28 Full Growth: Labor and struggle. Self-nurturing needed.

28-35 Construction: Responsibility increases, acquire property, possessions, home, family.

35-42 Deconstruction: Reactions and changes. Dependency of love, friends and parents to get us through.

42-49 Reconstruction: Adjustment and recuperation. A period of rest with some lingering effects of the Deconstruction cycle. Foundation for a new career.

2nd Phase: Spiritual – There is decline in earthly pursuits and increasing interest in wisdom and higher ways of living.

49-56 Rebirth: Weak but favorable cycle. New Beginnings and rediscovery.

56-63 Childhood: Successful cycle. Activity, domesticity, power and possibilities.

63-70 Adolescence: Wisdom, introspection, and passion.

70-77 Full Growth: Care and abundant rest is needed. Connection and communication.

77-84 Construction: Care and abundant rest is needed. Living by solid foundations.

84-91 Deconstruction: Friendships and love are important in this cycle.

91-98 Reconstruction: Rich in life experiences this cycle is a preparation for the divine realm.

The Septimal Law is a universal law. When we go against any law, life is simply harder. By knowing where you are in your life cycle, you can mentally, emotionally and physically prepare and/or re-adjust to a natural and more easier way of living.

— Note: Nature shows us the Septimal Law in:  7 Chakras,  7 musical notes, 7 colors in a rainbow, 7 days for skin to completely regenerate, 7 days for each phase of the moon, etc. —

Food for thought for each of us.

Master Key Experience Week 15

Why should the miracle that produced me end with my birth?

Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today?

I can increase my accomplishments a hundredfold.

These thoughts, combined with this week’s sit focusing on INSIGHT

and the FRANKLIN MAKEOVER are the beginnings of something good leading to the new me.

Our Makeover list of virtues are different than Ben’s.  The idea is to focus on one virtue each week for thirteen weeks, then do the observations again (four times a year).  This then is our tool to manifest our specific New Year’s plan for a total personality makeover.

My wish is for a Happy and life changing New Year for everyone participating in the Master Key Experience journey!

Master Key Experience Week 14

I enjoyed watching “Rudy” again, this time with a different perspective.

Daniel Eugene “Rudy” Ruettiger is a motivational speaker who played college football at the University of Notre Dame. His early life and career at Notre Dame was the inspiration for the 1993 film Rudy

Since early childhood, Rudy’s dream was to play football at Notre Dame (DMP), which was best known for legendary coach, Knute Rockne.  

Rudy knew more about Notre Dame football than any of his peers.  When mentioning his chief aim in life, he was always instantly greeted with negatives.

After playing high school football, Rudy discovered his grades were not good enough to be accepted at Notre Dame.  He started working in the steel mill alongside his father and brothers.  His best friend, Pete, gave him a Notre Dame jacket he had found at a thrift store for his birthday.  Rudy told Pete he had saved $1,000 over the last four years to pay his tuition at Notre Dame.

Unfortunately, Pete was killed in an accident at the mill.  Rudy left the funeral, told his girlfriend that if he didn’t go now, he would never get to go to Notre Dame.

Rudy’s father met him at the bus station and told Rudy that Notre Dame was for rich folks, that Rudy couldn’t qualify for admission.  Rudy said “having dreams makes life tolerable” (PMA), and left home.

Rudy talked with a priest when he arrived at Notre Dame and was told his grades weren’t good enough.  Rudy said he would do whatever it takes (POA) to go to school at Notre Dame.  The priest said he could get Rudy into Holy Cross college down the street and perhaps after a semester or two, if his grades were high enough, Rudy might be admitted.

Rudy introduced himself to Coach Ara Parseghian and said he would be back next year to play football at Notre Dame.

 

Rudy made friends with another student at Holy Cross who became a mentor and close friend to him (MMA), got a part time job with the Notre Dame groundskeeper, volunteered for extra-curricular activities that had anything to do with football, and sneaked into the groundskeepers office at night to sleep on the cot there since he didn’t have any place else to live.

Only after a long two years at Holy Cross was Rudy finally accepted into Notre Dame.  He tried out for football and was on the practice team.  At that time, only 60 of the 95 football scholarship players could suit up for each game.  During football season, one of the first string players asked Rudy why he didn’t quit because Rudy had been taking so many hits by the larger boys.  Rudy said “if I quit, you wouldn’t be at your best for the game on Sunday”.

At the end of his first season, Rudy asked Coach Parseghian if he could suit up for one game next season because Notre Dame football was his Dad’s favorite team and Rudy wanted to suit up so his Dad and family could see Rudy in a Notre Dame uniform since they couldn’t see him playing on the practice field.  Coach Parseghian told Rudy he wished some of his first team players had Rudy’s heart, and promised Rudy he could play in one game next year.

However, next season saw Dan Devine come in as head coach, dashing Rudy’s hopes of ever playing in a Notre Dame football game.  Near the end of the season, Rudy became so disheartened that he actually quit and did not show up for a practice.  When the head groundskeeper heard this, he told Rudy he had played on that field a number of times and that he had quit.  He told Rudy that not a day went by that he regretted his decision, and Rudy would do the same if he quit.  When Rudy showed up for the next practice, the entire team applauded his return.

Before the players were announced for the last game of the season, the team Captain laid his jersey on Coach Devine’s desk and said he wanted Rudy to suit up and take his place.  Then more players laid their jersey’s on the coaches desk.  Rudy was put on the list to suit up.  He called his Dad and friends and invited them to come to the game.  With only seconds remaining in the game, the players on the bench started chanting “Rudy, Rudy, Rudy…” and then the fans in the stands did the same.  The quarterback said Rudy played defense and as long as offense was on the field, Rudy would not be put in.  So he called a long pass play resulting in a touchdown.  Rudy was put in and participated in the kickoff return.  Rudy started to head back to the bench and the assistant coach told him to stay in.  The next and last play of the game, Rudy sacked the quarterback.

Rudy was lifted up and carried by the team (MMA). 

Since that 1975 game, no other Notre Dame player has been carried off the field.

Of course movies seldom tell it EXACTLY how it was.

 

 

Master Key Experience Week 13

Here we are half way through our MKMMA journey.  What a difference!  There are so many takeaways this week, so here goes.

A generalization of facts which are rare, strange, or form the exception, has been the magnetic needle guiding to all the discoveries of inductive science.

This then is the true nature and scope of induction. But the greater the success which men have achieved in the inductive science, the more does the whole tenor of their teachings and example impress us with the necessity of observing carefully, patiently, accurately, with all the instruments and resources at our command the individual facts before venturing upon a statement of general laws.

If then, we find that certain persons seem to possess unusual power, what are we to conclude?
First, we may say, it is not so.
Second, we may say that they are the result of supernatural interference, but a scientific understanding of Natural Laws will convince us that there is nothing supernatural.
Third, we may say that we are on “forbidden ground,” that there are some things which we should not know.

We should carefully consider every fact which is brought to our attention; by doing this we will more readily ascertain the law upon which it is based.

It will be found that the creative power of thought will explain every possible condition or experience, whether physical, mental or spiritual.

Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude.

If we think of some form of material wealth we may secure it. By concentrated thought the required conditions will be brought about, and the proper effort put forth, which will result in bringing about the circumstances necessary to realize our desires.

What are we to think in order to secure what we really desire? What you and I desire, what we all desire, what everyone is seeking, is Happiness and  Harmony.  But we cannot be happy unless we have health, strength, congenial friends, pleasant environment, sufficient supply, not only to take care of our necessities but to provide for those comforts and luxuries to which we are entitled.

We are entitled to the best of everything, that the “Father and I are one” and that the “Father” is the Universal Mind, the Creator, the Original Substance from which all things proceed.

In the first place, we must put our knowledge into practice.

We will get exactly what we give, but we shall have to give it first. It will then return to us many fold, and the giving is simply a mental process, because thoughts are causes and conditions are effects; therefore in giving thoughts of courage, inspiration, health or help of any kind we are setting causes in motion which will bring about their effect.

Thought is a spiritual activity  and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and herein is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement.

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 be, is in degree.

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.

To summarize:
Observe individual facts carefully, patiently, accurately, with all the instruments and resources at their command, before venturing upon a statement of general laws.
Use the creative power of thought.
When we learn of a fact we can be sure that it is the result of a certain definite cause and that this cause will operate with invariable precision.
It will explain the cause of every possible condition, whether physical, mental or spiritual.
A knowledge of the creative nature of thought puts us in touch with Infinite power.

 

This week we are adding NARC (Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning) to our arsenal for achieving successful completion of our MKMMA journey.  Wow!!  How powerful is this?  Do we throw away 13 weeks of growth or do we dig in and start to reap the instant benefits?  Drop our DMP (goals) in the trash?  Feel the pain, can’t pick them up until make 10 $10 million dollar calls?  Wow!!  Then comes the pleasure part!  For Mark, it’s memories of his uncles taking him to Fenway Park, enjoying the games, looking at his collection of baseball cards, associating enormous pleasure with CALLING!  OK, what is my pleasure????  Got to work on that today so I can DO THE DEED!!!!
DO IT NOW!!!!  I CAN BE WHAT I WANT TO BE – A FEARLESS LEADER!!!!

Combined with persistence, we have begun a complex compound progression.  “Why should the miracle that produced me end with my birth?  Why can I not extend that miracle into my deeds?” Og

Gratitude and Praise – peptides, PPN’s, DMP, Press Release, blogging, breaking addiction, new blueprint, chipping big blocks of cement away.

Operated with integrity. Learned WordPress. Twitter & Tweetdeck, Helped improve members area, Started my own mastermind, Leveraged minds of others, Put personal agendas aside, befuddled greedy.

The MKMMA journey just keeps giving.  How wonderful for us all.

God Bless Us Everyone – this Holiday Season and every day of our lives!!!!!

Master Key Experience Week 12

Week 12 has been one of incorporating the laws and symbols we have been accumulating week by week into a clearer picture of how our thoughts have given us the life we now have, and methods showing how we can clearly idealize and become our future selves.

Some of my takeaways this week are:

.Knowledge does not apply itself; we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists in fertilizing the thought with a living purpose.

 You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do

 Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.

 It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of Attraction.

 The mind cannot comprehend an entirely new idea until a corresponding vibratory brain cell has been prepared to receive it.

 The intention governs the attention.

It is in the Silence that you get into touch with the Omnipotent power of the subconscious mind from which all power is evolved.

 He who desires wisdom, power, or permanent success of any kind will find it only within; it is an unfoldment.

Combined with persistence and “Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”, we are making even greater strides toward becoming our successful future selves.
