Ha! All new years do not begin in January. This week begins the new year of my Master Key Experience a journey I will continue for as long as I have breath in my lungs.Last year I triumphed in some areas and felt the agony of defeat in other areas – so really not defeat, temporary set backs, one step forward two steps back. I didn't quit – I'm just not where I want to be, yet – but, I know what it looks like and I have the principles and tools that will get me there as I put in the work – (you can help too, I'll talk about that a little bit later).
Last year I was anxious, scared, stressed about just getting into the course – that stress was removed this year. I have some familiarity with the beginning and I feel inspired and excited by my ability to have a fresh start, a second chance, a new year. I get to start over again – it's awesome – not really a do over – a get better.
I happily opened my Master Key Lesson 1 today – I spent more time this year on the forward (or I just don't remember the forward from last year) – I was struck by the following paragraph:
"The Master Key teaches right principles, and suggests methods for making a practical application of the principles; in that it differs from every other course of study. It teaches that the only possible value which can attach to any principle is in its application. Many read books, take home study courses, attend lectures all their lives without ever making any progress in demonstrating the value of the principles involved. The Master Key suggests methods by which the value of the principles taught may be demonstrated and put in actual practice in the daily experience."
The Master Key System – transformed further into an Experience by the decades of practice and mastery by Mark J and his merry band of giraffes (no guina pigs here) is founded and bedrocked in the daily practice of principle and the science proving out the principles isn't too shabby. This Experience #NothingLikeIt is real you gotta work stuff. Aspects may seem fluffy – they aren't pomp and circumstance. No do this, think that, all wrapped up in a pretty package that has more value than the entirity of the course. No Gurus – don't you wish you were this cool – this is real stuff set up in a backed by science so just get with the program – this is a course that your work – shows (whether you want it to or not) your outer world truly is the reflection of what is going on in your inner world.
Today as I renew this journey with a New Year, I also within Scroll I of Og's Greatest Salesman Begin a New Life. I submitted my Definate Major Purpose (DMP) and have some refinments that are niggling and coming out of the ether and gaining greater shape (until they form I'll let them grow) I look forward to hearing from my Guide so that I can develop the language so as to give myself the greatest advantage to fulfilling my DMP. I enthusiastically read the Blueprint Builder – a.k.a. The Self Confidence Formula from Think and Grow Rich – I love it!
In my first DMP I copied the fifth paragraph in total into my DMP – my Guide said nope can't do it (I still maintain that paragraph 5 is an honorary part of my DMP) "Fifth, I fully realicze that no wealth or position can long endure, unless build upon truth and justice, therefore, I engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I induce others to serve me, because of my serving others. I will 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 cause others to belive in me because I believe in others, and in myself." BAM! Right – of course right. I love it! Talk about a principle to guide and live by it is happily a part of my daily practice.
As I begin my New Year of this Master Key Experience – I would be remiss if I didn't share in part some of the things that transpired in the last year. (Showing my work) A big part of my DMP revolves around our family home – last year we made an offer on that home just as the MKE was beginning – what a ride that experience was – you really do get tested to see if you are committed to the course – we closed on April 19th of this year!
I had a let's really see what's going on in my thoughts and see if it'll manefest on the outside. I added an auto-suggestion that I release all excess that is not serving my body (I'm not looking to lose weight – if I lose things I go find them and bring them back) my friends began commenting on how much weight I was losing – I'd tell them no I'm just releasing what is not serving my highest good. They'd say well your pants are getting baggy. So the first week of January I listened and went to the store and grabbed a pair of jeans two sizes smaller than the ones in my wardrobe (I didn't try them on just grab off the shelf) I tried them on when I got home and my daughter said nope too big – I put them on buttoned them up and could pull them straight down, yeah I could size down. So I went back and grabbed the next size down. I didn't add a workout program, I didn't change my diet, I changed what I was thinking and how I was thinking and it shows.
I mentioned above that you could help me with my DMP too, let me explain with my last two show my works from this last year. I have an amazing friend that has asked what I've been doing so I shared some of the MKE exercises with her – she wrote a DMP and made a DMP poster and let me know a couple things on it that she was really focusing on. The first was the need to sell a house she owned – for this we incorporated my favorite paragraph 5 – that the transactions she entered into would benefit all parties and I would quickly in my daily practice include that aspect of her DMP and state that she was Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious, Happy, and Healthy (the and Healthy is my addition) and within weeks she had a buyer from a completly unexpeted source and voila achievement. I have asked people in my family, my tribe, my Mastermind to say specific things on my behalf during the past year and BAM! Others have asked me to say and think certain things on their behalf and big Wows. We can help each other.
My last show my work is rather light hearted. My middle son, Zane fell truly, madly, deeply in love. He got engaged (and then married) in doing so I had the opportunity to embark on another first journey and go through a wedding. My amazing daughter-in-law chose peach and purple as her colors for her wedding and her mother said my favorite color is purple so that is what I'd like to wear. Absolutely, wear your favorite – you are the mother of the bride. So that left me in peach. My friends who know me well were terrified on my behalf – I may have a peachy attitude but I don't choose to wear peach. I enlisted all my closest on my behalf that I would find MY peach dress that my dear daughter would love too, or at least not hate. I spent hours, looked at thousands (yes, literally thousands) of dresses and found a dress that worked. My dress, I love it – it took some dramatic alterations to transform the dress into my mother-of-the-groom gown, but it worked. I wore a peach dress to a pic-nic themed summer afternoon wedding in August – here's the picture – of the before, picture it knee length with flutter sleeves (I haven't seen any pictures form the wedding so can't show the afters).
We are each blessed everyday to start fresh. We have another chance to do the things that we didn't do as well as we could have or should have. Yes, the New Year starts in January, but it doesn't stop me from having the opportunity to have my New Year in my journey in the Master Key Experience. I was here before and learned and applied skills and principles that have helped me greatly. I'm changing, but I'm not finished yet. I'm here to change the world and you can too. Let me know how I can help you in your fulfilling your DMP and if you are in harmony I'd love your help in my life. Thank you for joining me as I journey. I love you Think a peachy thought.:)
