MKE Week 26 My Three Pillars Of Growth

There are 3 supporting concepts to the law of growth.  Defined; the Law of Growth is whatever we think about grows.  What we forget atrophies.  

My personal challenge has been in the role of acceptance.  To continue to grow I read and think about the law of least effort acceptance.  Before the Master Key experience I did not realize how much I had been struggling against the different circumstances surrounding me. 2014-12-18_1136Now I daily use the information we are given in the course to accept people, situations, circumstances and events as they occur, not as I wish they were.  There is peace in my heart I have not known in the past. as I use the law of acceptance.

The second concept I embrace daily is responsibility.  Having accepted things as they are I take responsibility for my situation and for all these events I see as problems.  I know every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit.  Before the course, I did not understand or look at problems as opportunities.  Now I embrace the problems and look for the greater good to come from them.

Thirdly, the law of least effort, defenselessness.  In the past I have had excellent reasons and supporting facts to defend my point of view.  This was a huge area for me to work on thru the course.  My daily reading here consists of:  Today my awareness will remain established in defenselessness.  I relinquish the need to defend my point of view.  I will feel no need to convince or persuade others to accept my point of view.  I remain open to all points of view and not be rigidly attached to anyone of them.  Being defenseless has been a big challenge for me, an area of growth that takes careful watchfulness thru out my day.

I have learned and applied the Master Key to my life.  Anyone reading this blog post may find many answers to their areas of needed growth.  There is nothing to loose and everything to gain by taking the course starting in September 2015.

Sending my love to you,

Joan

 

Week 25 The Advantages Of Meditation

2014-12-18_1136

From the first day in the Master Key adventure I began to meditate.

For a week I worked to secure full control of my physical being.  My favorite place to get quiet is in nature, so I chose the back porch. That proved to be somewhat of a challenge on the very cold days of winter but the sunshine made it bearable and snuggled up under a warm blanket made it just right.  There on the porch, I would sit for 30 minutes.

The second week I was to inhibit all thought.  This gave me control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and enables me to entertain only the kind of thoughts I desire.  For me this started out slowly as there were many thoughts and I worked at clearing the mind every few minutes.  As the week progressed, I did gain control enough to see improvement.  Each week gave me more confidence that meditation would work as I persisted.

I am now in week 25 of this process and I can say with a certainty that meditation is a wonderful place of peace and happiness.  I have experienced reduced stress, a greater self awareness, and I have an increase of compassion for those around me.

My family experiences the “new me”.  My friends look at me and seem to be thinking, “what’s changed”?

There have been other changes that I have noticed;  increased focus and mindfulness of all that is around me.  It’s like seeing everything in 3D for the first time.

Week 24 Think Out Of The Box App

Introducing a new App thru the Master Key.  It is a new way to think out of the Box.

What interested me about this line of thinking was the connection to my past, watching my Mother draw and use special tactics.  My Mother was an artist and had worked in oils and pastels. She did scenery and portraits.  You could see her progress as she became better at the portraits. Completing all eight of her Grandchildren in pastels.  One of her “tricks” was to turn the picture upside down as she worked from photos. “Out of the Box” thinking like our new app.  This way of working gave her a special advantage in portraying the character of her subject.  You could see this clearly in the pictures of my twin nephews.  So close in looks that I could hardly tell them apart.  My Mother knew by the slight difference in the shape of their faces which, she saw clearly as an artist.

So here we are week 24 being introduced to a new App.  A new way of doing, which created a new way of thinking.  The question was asked of us…What animal would you be if you were an animal?  Write it out with your dominate hand.  Mine was a dog, but the interesting part was when asked the question again this time write using my non dominate hand.   A new answer emerged….barely able to write it out.  I was a Zebra.

Now it is your turn.  Try that exercise t2015-03-25_1607o see what animal is on your dominate side and what animal is on your non dominate side.  Then try brushing your teeth with your non dominate side. That was fun!!! Then pose some questions that you would like to answer.  Using your non dominate hand write out several answers to your own questions.  This is a way to get some really amazing answers and look at things entirely different.

The Master Key class has been amazing for me, with each week filled with new adventure.  As Haanel said in the introduction…”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.”

If you would like more information when the next class will be presented, please sign up on my email list.  It would be my pleasure to introduce you, free of charge, to your own personal journey.  Sign up for the 7 Day Mental Diet to get started now.

In Harmony,

Week 23 Reaching The Place Of Acceptance

Just a quick comment*****  I have been dog sitting for the last two years….and she loves to see me sit down at the computer to do my Blog.  For her that signals that it is “play time”… and for me it is time to think, not play.  I admit that she is so good and fun to have around.  Even meditates with me quietly, and content to do so.20141214_114645

I am reaching the place of acceptance with her and her ways of asking for attention at inconvenient times.

*****************************************

This week has been interesting learning new concepts.  The Law of Least Effort, By Chopra.

I practice acceptance.  Today I accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur, I know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. I won’t struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete.  I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were.

This is where the moment came for me….I suddenly realized the concept of my struggle is with the whole universe.  The Master Key class on Sunday was at the perfect moment giving me what I needed to come to this place of acceptance.

 

2015-03-19_1527

On Saturday, a certain someone decided not to follow the custody orders, airline tickets purchased and sent, preparations made here for the arrival of my Grandchildren.  Big disappointment for everyone.

These are custody orders!

Legal document!

Ordered by a Judge in Tarrant County!

Surely these orders carry some penalty for not following them?

Coming to this place of acceptance took some time for me but I can say with assurance this struggle is with the whole universe.  Today I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were.

My Acceptance is Total and Complete

I can be what I will to be

Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy 

Week 22 A Control Our Thoughts

2015-03-12_1745HARMONY IN THE WORLD WITHIN MEANS THE ABILITY TO CONTROL OUR THOUGHTS, AND TO DETERMINE FOR OURSELVES HOW ANY EXPERIENCE IS TO AFFECT US. (HAANEL)

It seems as though each day in my life there is a reason to control my thoughts.  For me this can be a struggle especially when I see injustices happening to children in our family.  So each day I use the seven laws of the mind to control and redirect my thoughts.  I will share these laws with you, knowing how much they have helped me keep my balance and remain in peace.

LAW OF SUBSTITUTION

We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind – try to think about higher power or God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  The Master Teacher said, “resist not evil” meaning don’t resist it but instead turn from it and think about something else instead.

LAW OF RELAXATION

Mental effort defeats itself-It’s the exact opposite of physical effort. A relaxed calm state of mind is the only doorway to mental progress.  Relaxation of thought is the only access to infinite intelligence.

LAW OF PRACTICE

Practice makes perfect.  The 5 Ps- Perfect Practice Prevents Poor Performance.  Our bewilderment of Magnificence in others, upon further inspection we find is really just practice.  With practice of the correct things, we improve on the other 6 laws of the mind.

LAW OF FORGIVENESS

To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel.  There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister justified or not, exists.

2015-03-05_1147LAW OF DUAL THOUGHT

Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.

LAW OF SUBCONSCIOUS

As soon as the subconscious accepts an idea it becomes a demand and it works constantly, 24-7 to manifest that demand-accessing a reservoir of infinite resources.

THE LAW OF GROWTH

Whatever we think about grows.  What we forget atrophies.

As I have leveraged  these Seven Laws of the Mind, I have found a renewed purpose in life, and a profound peace.

May these laws assist you in finding your peace.
