Week 20 – Potential is Worthless Unless …

Dog on Dock

Potential Becomes Valuable only when it is recognized and used.

How many times have you heard from a teacher “He has such potential but he is not using it” or hear commentators say how this athlete has great potential? Everything has great potential in it. It is the art of educing this potential out of us that is the key.

There is a story of a man who saw some boys playing a game with some stones. He noticed the stones and found that they got them from their father, The father had bowels of them as they were all around the place….. You may know the story that this was the greatest jewel field in Africa. Yet the families there did not recognize what was there. There was the potential for great wealth but they could not make use of it because they did not recognize it!

Our minds and thoughts are the same. We hold great potential, great gifts, but until we recognize, understand, and become conscious of what we have we are unable to use it.

You may have all the wealth in Christendom, but unless you recognize it and make use of it, it will have no value! – 20:2 MKS

We have been given this great tool, our mind, to use and create with. Oil, electricity, gases, water, everything on this planet has always been here but until we learned of its existence, recognized it, learned how to harness it, only then were we able to profit from it.

You and I have the greatest tool and mechanism ever at our disposal. Given freely and abundantly. We have great potential in our own minds if we but learn to THINK!

Take the time to recognize, learn, harness, and create with this power within you!

Enjoy!

Week 19 – We Are Many – We Are One

Many one

We Are Many and We Are One

I just watched “I AM” by Tom Shadyac this week and it illuminated our Master Keys study for the week brilliantly. In ‘I Am’ Tom Shadyac  begins by asking the question “what is wrong with the world and what can we do to make it better?” In a documentary style he searches and poses the question to the thinkers of the world. In the end he says “We started out looking for what was wrong with the world and ended up finding out what was right with it instead” Truly he found the correct question to ask.

In This weeks Master Keys I am struck by these two sentences “If your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business, and your environment” Then Haanel shares “What is this raw material which is being collected in these thousands of mental powerhouses all over the world and developed into a power which is evidently controlling every other power? In its static form it is Mind – In its dynamic form, it is THOUGHT”focused thots

It is gratitude, cooperation, love, compassion, these are the powerful vital ‘Thoughts’ that are transforming the story of our world. As Tom finds over and over in his film “We are all connected – to each other and to everything around us!” Global Consciousness; there is an identity that we all share, a cause and effect that continues to recur and resonate through us all.

Ying and Yang are not 2 separate things but one complete whole. Light-dark, high-low, hot-cold all the same but extremes of degree. We are unique individuals because of our juxtaposition to each other, our uniqueness lies in our relationship to each other thing. Yet we are all part of the same fabric, the same Universal Mind, all made up of the same particles of life.

And, as each of us in the world begins to understand that we tell our own we are powerfulstory and we begin to create a consciousness that is positive and constructive, We are changing the dynamic of the whole world!

We are many but we are  one.

Enjoy Life!

 

 

Week 18 – Waste Not a Moment

Lack of time

Today is all that I have, I must waste not a moment for these hours are now my eternity. I make each hour count and each minute I trade only for something of value!From the Greatest Salesman Scroll V

In this life we each have the option to do or not to do. Or to be or not to be? That really is the question. You can Give up and give in to all the distractions and excuses that bombard us daily causing you to lose your way. Or you can chose to Step up and take control of your mind, take determined action and Crush it!

Road sign

Idleness Kills! (Now that should be a graffiti slogan, maybe I will tag my walls with it) Only action resolves the difficulties of life. One must take action and initiative to work. Take action on a problem to solve it. Take action when the moment comes that begs for action.

But where is our focus usually? People know more about what is going on in the lives of Celebrities than they do of their own life? Why do people put so much interest and effort into lives of Sports Figures, Actors, even characters in TV shows, that have absolutely no bearing on their lives or how to improve their situation?

Our Travel through the Master Keys Shares with us that we are the individual manifestation of the Universal Mind. But, Only in as much as we manifest it! 

In order to grow we must obtain what is essential for our growth – this is the Law of Attraction. However we can not receive what we need unless we lay down what we do not need, and then give away that what we need in return.

The psychologist tells a person who is depressed or sad to go find a person in need and help them. Go volunteer in a nursing home where people are dependent on the care of others. In doing this work, the helping of others, the depressed person begins to feel valuable and loses themselves in the care and service of others. She is giving away what she needs herself and by doing so receives it back in abundance!

But if she remained idle and focused on her problems what would happen then? Growth is a reciprocal action. We know by now that we are what we focus on, we are what we think about. But how is it manifest in our lives?The journey

Through ACTION! Action is the bridge between the thought and the manifestation. Thought is the dynamic phase of mind and action puts the flesh on it. We create our lives by our thoughts and our actions.

You choose: Give up and be idle inward focused and give in to brain numbed by distraction. Or, Step up and do the work and in the doing become greater and from this dynamic energy go CRUSH IT!

Enjoy Life and make the most of yours!

 

week 17.5 – Are you living or existing?

Living life

Life is for the living     –    Life is for Living!

This week in our Master Key Experience, we are given the task to read 1 obituary each day. With no other guidance many question why are we doing this?  What are we to make of it?

Some people think this is about leaving a legacy – Screw that!

Some say its about how I want to be remembered – Screw that too!

I do not care about leaving a legacy I care about participating in life. Being most-people-existpresent, caring for people, interacting, touching them in meaningful and inspirational ways. To be touched and inspired myself, in other words to live!

Are people remembered and important because they leave a legacy? Or did they leave a legacy because they lived an exemplary life?

“There was a very cautious man
Who never laughed or played
He never risked, he never tried,
He never sang or prayed.
And when one day he passed away,
His insurance was denied,
For since he never really lived,
They claimed he never really died.

(Anonymous poem)”

Some obituaries are a story that share the life and experiences where many were affected by the presence of this person. Others state this person died end of story.

existing2How do I live? I am natures greatest miracle!  Remember the line in ‘Saving Private Ryan’? “Earn this …. earn it” I was given this opportunity I intend to Earn it!

 

Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

Perfect!live-life21

I give myself permission to shine brightly to play large and give others permission to play at a higher level. I am the light of the world, God made me so. I shall shine, I shall participate and be bold. No longer do I live in quiet desperation trying to keep silent and reserved as a spectator to life. I shall LIVE so that my time touches many and inspires them to LIVE and touch many others. It has been said that we are in this life to serve Gods children. Let it be so!

It just keeps getting better!
