Wow! Week 4 – Mark says everyone quits this week – either they in truth quit or they quit giving the less than 100% of themselves, the toe-dipping they have given the MKE until this week, and fully commit to the Journey, to completing, to themselves – 100%. You are either out or you are all in – this week. He also has said on more than one occasion – how you do on this journey was already decided – What will to be – is done before it's begun. Interesting, but something is missing in this 'Will to Be' – and that missing piece is the centerpiece of the Lesson 4 of the Master Key – 'I'.
For those of you just joining us – I'm here for the second time … look back I left last years blog posts up … How did I make it past Week 4 last year and not complete – how does last years incompleteness foreshadow my journey to come? But, I digress … (Don't worry – we'll come back to this, I promise)
How have I been doing in these four weeks of the MKE? My favorite, it speaks to my soul, I connect with it – is the BPB – the Blue Print Builder – Hill's Self Confidence Formula – most specifically paragraph 5 – my honorary paragraph of my DMP – my I completely go the extra mile on this baby – not 1 or 2 times a day – lots, lots and lots like Do It Now type lots. (I repeat Do It Now 25x twice a day) This week Haanel in 4-6 is my beloved paragraph 5 – "The trained mind knows that every transaction must benefit every person who is in any way connected with the transaction, and any attempt to profit by the weakness, ignorance or necessity of another will inevitable operate to his disadvantage."
So while I see the wisdom and resonate with the BPB it was refreshing to have it in the MK lesson.
The rest of the MK lesson is what Mark warns about – If you begin and do not complete though the heavens fall you are an absolute, ignominious failure. (I looked all of these words up in the dictionary :), in case you were wondering.) In Scroll I it says failure is described but one way, the inability to reach one's goals in life, whatever they may be.
More than anything else to quit is to develop a bad habit – the bad habit of failure. I look back on my life and it isn't necessarily a study in absolute, ignominious failure; more it is a study in living life as an onion, quickly without the scrolls that are less to bring success and more to prevent failure. I'm not afraid of failure persay but the perpetual state is not where I choose to build my dreams and my world within – if my world without is reflecting failure, I need to change.
This blog is a study on what does need to change in my life – I had it essentially ready to post on Tuesday, but I allowed my life work to pull me, and to push me into directions that scattered my focus. So here we are late (not a place I like to be, I'm an early girl, on time is late). I love this course. I love the Universal Truths I am learning and the habits and skills I am developing. so answering my above query. No, last year is not the mold for this year. This year has not been cast in the cement of last year. This year I choose to become an oak and I'm willing to dedicate the time to grow into the oak I was created to be.
I'm seeing more and more clearly that focus is my key. So I will to be focused. I am in this course for duration, though the heavens may fall (I believe they will more likely open up), but I enjoy a mystery. Think a focused thought, because when you focus – you're Workin' 🙂
