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 17 – The GOAL: Symbols versus Reality

success-coaching-header

While in my sit after reading part 17 of Haanel’s Master Key System this evening I had a very interesting vision/thought. The Goal I have set my sights on is a symbol of power not the reality! In line 28 Haanel states: “You may be pursuing fame instead of honor, riches instead of wealth, position instead of servitude; in either event you will find that they turn to ashes just as you overtake them.” 

I think I Just figured out why goals of money are not working for me. I can’t get excited about money I can’t generate intense emotion over paper. But I can see a family go from struggle to secure, from desperation to excitement and joy. I have a vision of a family, I see their 2 boys cross the stage in little suits with cute bow ties and polished shoes, a family that was unsure if they would need to move in with friends to make ends meet just a year earlier. Wow! My true goal is to use my talents to mentor and empower people to success.

The goal is not the $1,000,000 a year income. Not the Status, not the award, Leaders-Helping-Othersnot the achievement. These are the symbols of an achievement met. Results of a reality called service

The goal is in using my gifts to help others realize their talents and gifts to satisfy their needs. In my business of financial services, for example, my goal is to help as many families become financially secure and independent as possible. In my business my goal is to use my talents to mentor and empower associates to become self sufficient and ultimately wealthy.

If I lead, empower, and mentor X number of people to reach their goal of a 6 figure income, and help them build teams doing Y in production each month, then I am assured of generating over a million dollar a year income. That is the end result. Thus my goal is not the end result, the end result is simply the manifestation of having served the number of people necessary. My focus therefore is on the service and the goal of the number of people served.help-other-succeed

The very interesting thing of this focus is that I can focus on people and service. I can be come excited and passionate about people! I can visualize the outcome of service. I can not focus on money because money does not really exist. Money is a symbol, the manifestation of perceived value it is not substance. People are! So there I have it, in pursuing the symbol I am left with ashes, but in pursuing the spirit, the true goal, I can achieve beyond my dreams!

Oh my!

Enjoy Life!

Week 16 – My Master Key Experience

what-you-think-you-becomeWhat-you-feel-300x300

The Master Key Mastermind Alliance, or as we call it, ‘The Master Key Experience’ is based on and is a study of Charles Haanel’s work ‘The Master Key System.’ But that is not all of it, that is more a framework not the end all be all of the program. It would be impossible to describe this in a paragraph or two so I will share my experience to this point ‘My Master Key Experience.’

Our life is our thoughtsThe outer world is a perfect mirror of our inner world. The circumstances of our life and our situations all come from how we think. Our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, biases, prejudices, self-talk. I can’t (why?) I’m not good enough (who says?) I’m not big enough, old enough, young enough, skinny enough, fat enough,….//Fill in the blank//  you get the idea.  We have created beliefs from outside input and it is from these beliefs that we act and react.

An immersion into introspection and self discovery.  Painful at times exhilarating at others, insight and epiphanies abound. Time consuming and some times just plain a pain in the…,  Well, I knew this was going to be different, a true experiential happening, not a lecture series to feel like I accomplished and check off my to do list. Yes, self actualization course for the year , Check! No this has been hard work lots of forward progress, back sliding, regrets, rethinking, re-framing, and thinking. Really thinking!

This is not a do the exercise and be done with it class; No, this is grow-learn-tear down-build then grow some more. I am the caterpillar becoming the butterfly over and over again. As I strive to remove the negative and the concrete that has been layered over me for 50 years. Striving to become the once and future golden child inside.

26 weeks seemed like a long time to dedicate to this project but here I am 17 weeks later and I am in awe of the growth and insights I have found already. But I am also now more aware than ever before of what I do not know and how much more there is  to learn and explore. At the end I know this is not over. This is like college commencement I will take the tools and use them to continue to learn, develop, explore, and create myself on my own without the structure or classroom environment. Good thing I have a lifetime to get to know me!

Teacher my head is full may I be excused!

Week 12 – Creating A Living Purpose

Knowledge does not apply itself, we must make the application and that is to fertilize the thought with a Living Purpose. – Master Key Pt 12 -Haanel

Buddah

I love listening to Earl Nightingale’s great work ‘The Strangest Secret’ where he says “We become what we think about.” This theme is repeated over and over in life and in every work of success that I have studied from the Bible on through the ages. In this weeks study of the Master Keys, we open with the statement “There is no purpose in life that cannot be best accomplished through a scientific understanding of the creative power of thought.”  Wow!

What we need to understand is the POWER that our thoughts have. Again think of the quote ‘we become what we Think about’ and understand that this is the beginning of success. If we want to create the IDEAL life, successful business, successful relationship, or what ever we must first create it in our mind and focus on it.

But! as Haanel points out in line 6: “your ideal must be Sharp, Clear-cut, Definite” If we have erratic or unfocused goals then success will never be ours. The price of success is vigilance it is focus and clarity of vision.

“Unless you can concentrate upon the object which you have in view, you will have but a hazy, indifferent, vague, indistinct and blurred outline of your ideal and the results will be in accordance with your mental picture.”  – Haanel

Road sign

Or as I often say Fuzzy goals = Fuzzy results. What is your life up to this point? how have your results been? What have you manifested? Ouch personal reflection and introspection can be painful! But understand this, that your intention drives your attention and if you can be specific you will enjoy the outcome.

We create our own circumstance through our mental activities and emotional vibration. Why do we do the mental diet?  (see the 7 days to a new you on the side) Because developing a positive mental outlook and removing the negative bias from our life is imperative to the function of creating the purpose and life we want to live.

The things we would have are created in the mental world first before we bring them into existence. In other words we must concentrate on our goals and ambitions and give purpose to our dreams then we will live them.

Live on purpose with a purpose and watch the world open up for you!
