Week 17 – The worship of false gods

Back again!!

G’Day all from an African summer in Australia.

It may seem that I am always in catch up mode with this process … lately that is the truth.

Haven’t been managing my activities in a way they combine very well, however there is a very strong positive.  In the past I may have justified not continuing and by making an excuse that shed blame ‘outside’.

This is an inside job and I now know and feel it; there has been a constant internal pressure to stay in touch with the class work, the reading and the thinking.

Week 17 probably bought many to a point of realisation about what they are or had been pursuing the gods of money and things; rather than focusing on service.  It was certainly in my face and made me question my intentions as I set off into building business and personal brand again.  When I examined my DMP and the way I have always done business I felt at ease with how things have come together, however identified that the money god was putting pressure on my actions along the way.  The Law of Growth, give more get more and not expecting reciprocity from the channels I enrich are key players in my thought patterns now.

Haanel writes

17-28. You may be pursuing the symbols of power, instead of power itself. 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.

17-29. Premature wealth or position cannot be retained because it has not been earned; we get only what we give, and those who try to get without giving always find that the law of compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium.

Which reminds me of two examples.  One was a very successful lady client of mine who was always doing another ‘goal’.  Yet she didn’t seem to work to providing more service for anyone, often expressing negative feelings about customers.  She always achieved her goal in short time frames and then fell flat; needing another new ‘thing’ for the mental trophy cupboard.  Happiness wasn’t in the stuff! The importance of them turned to ashes.

Next is a local business man of some notoriety.  Came into money, lots of money, as a result of a very canny land deal his father put together.  His personal wealth was measured in the hundreds of millions and assets combined made him a young billionaire.

He was in the news for a year, buying (bailing out) local football teams, proposing developments and making promises of delivering all sorts of big ticket items to the city.  At the same time the things took over.  Massive homes, planes, helicopter, three horse racing studs (hundreds of horses and staff), exotic cars and what seemed like dozens of business ventures.

By 18 months from the start of his rise to fame he went from saviour to bad behaviour in the eyes of the world.  Not paying staff, debts or suppliers; while still dishing out the dough and making a fanfare about it.

He was in the mining sector, yet had never turned a sod or produced a single ounce of coal or ore.  Just buying in and out of things and making more money to blow elsewhere it seemed.

In the end of this chapter of his life he is a leper in the business world, one mining group’s share prices actually started to drop just because he was involved.  People are still chasing him for unpaid debts and unkept promises. “..the law of compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium”.

So let’s get to bringing more service to the world we live in and attract symbols of the power we develop in direct and exact equilibrium.

Week 16 – Looking for Kindness and Clarity

Just a quick one.

G’day all and welcome to the next step in the master keys mastermind alliance for me.

Gotta say the testing nature of this course hit me at this point, my conscious mind is occupied each day with the vision I hold for my future self and I am revisiting my purpose each day.  The rigor in which I am applying the activities of the course are slipping a bit which does stress me a little.  I promised myself to not just do this class, but to really get the most from it.  This pressure is pushing me in the right direction.

This week Haanel has provided a revision of some principles shared right from the start. To create we must take our ideas and visualise in great detail and focus on how this is to be.  How it feels, how it looks and how it will serve others. Then it will materialise, as the resources and people around us align and somehow or another appear as we need them to succeed.

Anyone remotely familiar with the law of attraction knows this to be so, yet how many of us still entertain negative thoughts about ourselves or our likelihood of success.  STOP IT!! These thoughts are powerful forces in the creation of our unfolding destiny.  Everyone of them a step backwards and potentially even giving in.

The discord we experience in any part of life has been bought upon us by our practiced thinking and the feelings we have chosen for those thoughts.  Many people will think something evil has happened when life goes to poop, instead of seeing the outcome as an effect and the thinking as the cause.

I like Haanel’s very Buddhist comments on good and evil.

16-24 to 27

“It is neither good nor bad, it simply is.  Our ability to differentiate it into form is our ability to manifest good or evil.  Good and evil therefore are not entities, they are simply words which we use to indicate the result of our actions, and these actions are in turn predetermined by the character of our thought.

If our thought is constructive and harmonious we manifest good; if it is destructive and discordant we manifest evil.”

We need to focus on just the creation of our positive ideal and not let thoughts of other people and things that we think we lack enter into the equation.

That’s the clarity bit sorted.

This week the Franklin makeover had the virtue of kindness as the one we would focus on. One could be forgiven for thinking that this was a rare comodity in our modern life.

However I found it everywhere and also realised how kind I am all the time; as I had always meant to be but never truly examine whether I was walking that talk.

Give this a go if you haven’t been a part of this class.  For a whole week look for kind acts, acknowledge your own own kindness and deliberatley undertake a couple of random acts of kindness each day.  You may be very pleasantly surprised how nice each day becomes and how more kindness shows up. I had the most enjoyable drive into Sydney, helping others in traffic and enjoying the same from others.  I had favours given to me by businesses who had no need to extend them to me. I had lots of great chats.  That was one day out of the week of experiencing how nice people are given the opportunity and encouragement.  Give it a go and then just keep doing it if it feels right.

A big year ahead in personal achievement, service to others and business growth, a lot of which will be built on the knowledge and skill derived from this MKMMA class and the Go90Grow training resources.  Can’t wait to share the successes with you all.

Week 15 – What you desire needs space to join you!!

G’Day all

Well what a busy week it has been catching up on my Master Key Mastermind Alliance requirements, both honour and actual.  OOOPS nearly missed out on staying onboard but kindly reinstated.

The class made a significant progression with the introduction of a version of Franklins makeover that focuses on positive virtues we will be magnifying over the next 13 weeks. It is obvious how this can work and like so many people believe “why isn’t this stuff taught in schools?” . How valuable would be for kids to learn how Ben Franklin at a young age started to deliberately shape his mind and world; that this is the cause behind the affect of his ongoing success, not luck.

I am excited to each week search out and enact each virtue; seeing it in others proves I have it in me.  This will be especially helpful on a few of them for sure.

Haanel in 15 once again plugs away at the principles that are nature’s laws and not it a boring mundane way.  These laws are for us to take advantage of and if we are living a life full of difficulty, disharmony and obstacles; then we are refusing to let go and be grateful for what we have and have access to that will provide what we need to improve our lot.

This can be a bitter pill to swallow for us along the way, however I am sure if you examine thoughts, choices and resistance to change along the way, we all have reaped what we have sown.  A principle of the Law of Growth we can’t deny or avoid; that is mathematically exact in it’s nature.

I won’t quote all the powerful bits in this weeks lesson, however the message is clear what thoughts and words we use and the images we store in our minds are powerful. They are the seeds of the material world we are creating and we are always creating; a vital positive world or a life of desperation and mediocrity.  It is in our power to carefully and deliberately choose which by deliberately thinking and speaking about our desired conditions.  We reap only what we sow; the mind is the soil and our thoughts are the seeds.

Over the break we were asked to seek out a few movies to view that have powerful elements and messages that relate to the Hero’s Journey or more importantly the elements Haanel has shared.

Cool Runnings (seen many times), October Sky, Rudy and Door to Door. Haven’t been able to find Door to Door yet, however did manage to enjoy October Sky and Rudy.  Imagine having to watch movies for home work; anyone who knows me knows I just love a good flick and these qualify.

October Sky was a powerful story and told of an era and situation where people did what they did

The actual 'Rocket Boys'

The actual ‘Rocket Boys’

next because everyone else before them had.  In this case it was set in a coal mining town and that is what boys did when school ended; they went to the mine. The USSR launched Sputnik and set a desire in one boy to build rockets and use that as is way out.  It is a true story and no spoilers here, just find it and watch it. The lessons are there and easy to transfer into modern ‘your life’ and worth trotting out for the kids at some point.

Rudy on the other hand I will put some spoilers on, but watch it anyhow.  Rudy’s father and brothers were huge fans of the Notre Dame college football team and all his life Rudy had a burning desire to run onto the field as part of that team. He was however small, a bit athletically challenged and wasn’t likely to be awarded a sports scholarship to that college due to a very distracted and un encouraged school life.

He clearly stated his desire and would visualise games and his role. He had a recording of the famous coaches speech to players which he knew verbatim; often performed with great enthusiasm. He never shifted from his dream regardless of the negative comments, teasing and lack of encouragement from a single person in his family.  However he had one understanding and supportive friend who included him in games and even gifted him a Notre Dame jacket.

Instead of a mine, this town had a steel mill and Rudy’s dad had a foreman’s role there.  Rudy was expected to and did start at the mill, following in his father and brothers footsteps. His friend also worked there and died in a work accident. The tragedy and loss of support switched Rudy from acceptance of his lot to pursuance of his dream. This is where we see all the required actions taking hold and unfolding in an amazing demonstration of the Law of Attraction.

#45 Rudy is the last Notre Dame player carried off the field since the 70's

#45 Rudy is the last Notre Dame player carried off the field since the 70’s

Unshaking persistence, visualisation, service to others, courage and burning desire pulling together circumstances and people to ensure he lived out his dream.  Chasing that dream also took him to a much better place and the ripple affect into his family invaluable.  He just refused to see another outcome and was presented with the right people at the right time to ensure it occurred.  He was still small, athletically challenged and struggling with school; yet in the final game of the season of his senior year Rudy ran out on the field with his family in the stands.  It was for less than a minute of play and yet because of who he had become and the affect of his service to the team he was carried off the field like a champ (hero).  It was all achieved via thought and focus on the desired outcome, everything else just unfolded as required, eventually with the support of over 60 people.

We all have this is us and available to us to pursue whatever desired outcome we have.  We can’t afford to think of anything else or entertain the negativity of others.

Week 13 & 14 — Over the Break Something Broke

G’Day and an absolutely fabulously amazing 2015 to you.

The Master Keys Master Mind Alliance team set us some exercises and sent us off on the holiday break with a clear idea of the progressions to be made over the final 3 months of the course.

To tell the truth I was at this point feeling more than a little overloaded with ‘stuff’ and was concerned about how I would not just catch up but get ahead of my load.

We were really lucky again this year to be attending a fantastic music festival in the hinterland above the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.  We traveled out on the 25th of December and arrived home on the the 4th of January, with the Woodford Festival our home for seven days.

I equipped myself with books, flash cards and a variety of loose papers (Blue print builder, DMP, press release, seven laws of the mind, mini movie poster) and a laptop with a view of incorporating a strong daily activity with a disconnect from the outside world at the festival.

Well I wasn’t that successful, however did read each day and managed some nice silence as well.  What I did find was all the melody around me had me singing affirmations all day; I can be what I will to be, do it now and I am whole perfect strong powerful loving harmonious and happy, all coming together in a nice little ditty.  I did feel that I could have done better MKMMA wise however I felt I broke through a point of resistance and the desire to persist not only with the class but the pursuit of my Definite Major Purpose has become stronger then at the start point.

I can not only imagine the outcome of that but am now feeling it is the only outcome I am willing to accept. think

Each morning was enhanced with a re enforcement of master key principles and positive thinking with a workshop by Dr Happy, where he stepped through actions we can take to be happier, all aligned with the principles of correct thinking of course. It was a another reminder point to identify each day a few things that we can be grateful for as a way of being happier with our current place in life.

Haanel in 13 touches on happiness and it’s power as a thought form, however he also reminds us that years of work can be swept away when negative thoughts like fear become our predominant mental attitude. Happiness and the keys to happiness are found in the pursuit of health, strength, good friends, pleasant environments, sufficient supply (wealth) to not only cover our basics but to offer us surplus.  Although coming to the end of this scroll with Og Mandino, it is in the persistence that we succeed: continuing the correct activity until we reach our desired point.

Haanel’s work in 14 is one of the most important in the series so far to me.  Everything is created by thought and it’s effects on the universal via the connection of the subconscious.   This concept has been explored before in his work, however the emphasis has changed in this week and the importance of our use of thought correctly.  From 14-4 “we get results in exact accordance with our understanding of the law and our ability to to make proper application.”

Isn’t this true of every activity we wish to succeed in, yet the vast majority “most people” they go through life with absolutely no deliberate attempt to access, understand and apply knowledge about getting what they want out of that life.  Behind every effect in their life there is a cause and that cause can be traced back every time to a thought; by them or someone else.

Doesn’t it make perfect sense to be the thinker that is unfolding your life the way you design it than to be at the mercy of incorrect thinking or maybe worse the powerful thoughts and designs of another.

So I am in the process of not just knowing but doing, actively accessing my creative mind to unfold my DMP for the next five years.  You might say that is very short term thinking, however with that in place and the journey to getting there experienced, I will have a better view of the next 40+ years and how to serve others even better.

unique

Og reveals in the next scroll that we are nature’s greatest miracle, unique and one of a kind, with unlimited potential.

That thousands of years of evolution has equipped us better than our predecessors.

Two passages particularly grabbed my attention: “Within me burns a flame which has been passed from generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world.”

That actually explains a lot about my past decisions and being here in the MKMMA.

“I am not put on this earth by chance, I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain: henceforth I will apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.

I am nature’s greatest miracle

Week 12 – The Law of Attraction is Focused Love?

G’Day and welcome to the feelings around week 12 of the Master Key Mastermind Alliance process.

I will get back in sync soon where the blog will show up a few days earlier.

Many of us viewed ‘The Secret’ in recent times and for many the words ‘Law of Attraction’ were previously unknown. So although not a documentary uncovering all the details and mental work required to take advantage of this powerful forces; it did get a lot of people thinking about how they think.  It certainly sold the idea that you are the creator of your world without and your thoughts and feelings were the cause of every aspect of your perceived reality and the actual outcomes.

The great thing we are getting out of this Mastermind Alliance is the actual components laid out and the continuous activities required not only to access the LOA but to really learn how to manifest with ease and speed our desired outcomes.

This week Haanel reminds us the ‘Law of Attraction’ is always in process for us, regardless of whether we get outcomes we desire or are attempting to reject, it is the same vibrational matching to our thoughts and feelings.

We need to, if we want to manifest a particular outcome, use the focus of a master inventor or artist, holding a clear and focused vision constantly, the feelings of burning desire and love charging our thoughts with infinite creative energy.  It is this feeling of love impregnated in our thoughts that make them invincible.

LOA

If they are invincible, why are we not surrounded by the positive outcomes we desire?

We must acknowledge the consistency of this Law and that when we are not vigilant as gate keepers to the subconscious mind, both what comes in and leaks out; negative thoughts and feelings are activating the same Law we are accessing for positive outcomes.

“3. We know that thought is building for us the thing we think of and actually
bringing it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement,
all of which are powerful thought forces, and which continually send the things we
desire further away, so that it is often one step forward and two steps backward.”

“11. Of course, worry, fear, and all negative thoughts produce a crop after their
kind; those who harbor thoughts of this kind must inevitably reap what they have
sown.”

This is where the mental diet  and having no opinion is so so powerful, as it makes us deliberate and positive, without a judgement that might interfere with our focus on correct thought.

The exercise this week or challenge set by Mark J was a 50 minute mirror conversation with our self. Not a mindless chat though, it was us telling ourselves our definite major purpose in one sentence over and over again. This charged the DMP with all sorts of positive emotion for me; producing tears and silly grins.  A first it was difficult and then suddenly it transformed into a fun and provocative communication to my subconscious.  As a result the DMP has become a mantra that slips effortlessly and with glee from my lips.

Have a great break everyone!! Google ‘woodford folk music festival’ and that will give you an insight on what my next experience is to be 🙂

Week 11 – Persistence with induction thrown in.

G’Day all …. bit late again … however here and ruminating over the things that have become apparent.  More on that at the end.

Firstly though I would like to explore the Master Key lesson for week 11 a little.

This is the first week that I really struggled to get into what Haanel was trying to impart on me.  There was the familiar theme which i’d imagine by now all participants have totally absorbed into their subconscious mind.  The world within (our thought and emotions) is the cause and the world without is the consequence of our persistent ‘world within’.

However the language, subject matter and the structure created the need to read very slowly and carefully, looking for the core point he was attempting to deliver.

Induction or inductive thinking as a term was new to me in this context, having an electrical trade background it means a totally different thing; involving magnetic fields and creating currents. The induction Haanel speaks of is the exploration of what is, comparing the components involved and using logical thinking to come to a general conclusion as to the root causes and commonality.  For humanity this can be seen in the move from superstition and no understanding of ‘why’ to piecing together the world around them, gaining an understanding of the laws that govern their daily experiences and opened the path for progress.

11:14 “However distant that land may appear, induction has taught men to make
strides toward it and has surrounded him with benefits which are, at the same time,
rewards for past fidelity and incentives for more assiduous devotion.”

For us I guess this can be looking at how things have turned out so far, using inductive thought and our growing understanding of the laws to see the contributing components of persistent thoughts, emotions and choices we have made in a logical fashion.  Once determined we can, once again, using our growing understanding deliberately piece together a ‘law abiding’ way of thinking, seeing and applying action to create whatever we hold in our thoughts as already existing for us.  In escrow waiting to unfold as we ready the pathway for each aspect to manifest itself physically.

Once again the persistence and focus is the theme of creating what we desire.

The feeling part of our thinking has been emphasised by the MKMMA team as a way of transferring our thoughts into outcomes; to feel the elation of having whatever you desire already, having faith that it is waiting for us and all the required resources will become apparent as required at a rate directly related to how much we allow and let go of the process of ‘how’ to attain them.

Haanel adds in 11:18-19 “18. We are first to believe that our desire has already been fulfilled, its
accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the
creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the
particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact.
19. We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and eliminating all
consideration of conditions or limitation and are planting a seed which, if left
undisturbed, will finally germinate into external fruition.”

persist4

Of course we need to, like any farmer knows maintain the optimum conditions for this to happen, fertilising our mind with correct thoughts and persisting with the application of correct actions.  If we get impatient or change our focus to other thoughts and actions we slow and interfere with the manifestation unfoldment.

So it is up to us to create through our persistent application of our new found knowledge, using inductive reasoning to examine outcomes in an unemotional logical way for proof of laws and lessons on their use to obtain rewards for past fidelity (faithfullness to obligations) and incentives for more assiduous (diligent, perservering, industrious) devotion.

Now for a quick review of my rumination.  My struggles to keep pace with the variety of tasks or components in the programme and keeping positive about the shortfall at times. I know I am one of 300+ participants and I do not want to join the 100+ that have been invited back next year to try again.  There were big payoffs emotionally this week in being reminded of the persistence I have demonstrated and the achievements made in these first eleven weeks.

I have completed so many tasks that have been procrastinated on for long periods, lightening the load on the future self considerably.  My focus on where my future self will be has never been higher and clarity on the actions required also filled with faith.

Yet there is a time to do it all aspect that keeps popping up.  There is the making sure I make time for wife and family, there is the need to stay focused in a safety critical role in the ‘job’, while ensuring I keep connected with my growing network marketing team.

persist3The great thing is that the internal pressure to do so remains higher then ever in my life as a result of this class and the confidence that I can do it all successfully likewise high.  The old blueprint, the concrete on my golden Buddha and the hero in my journey are all in flux, changing their status and influences.  All down to persisting where I can with what I resonate most with in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance course.  I must stay the course and get the most value out of it possible, as I can feel the life altering enhancing value of each aspect as it is uncovered.

Wishing you all a great week!

Week Ten!!- Natural Law, glide with it or work against it; Choice

Gday All !! Happy Monday I think 🙂 (note: I now know it is Aussie Tuesday 🙂 )

For those who have been following the progress so far with the Master Key Master Mind Alliance experience I am enjoying at present (wow 10 weeks) you might have noticed comments about the lifestyle I lead work wise.  I really didn’t have a clue what day it was today.  Sorry for being late guys, however thrilled to get here.

The Haanel work this past week has been very good at re enforcing the concepts of the natural laws of the universe that we operate within and our role in getting the best from them.  We must always operate with the clear knowledge that they are operating at all times and that we are creating at all times.  The Law of Growth and the Law of Attraction are pretty much hand in hand at all times.

10:18 “… everything that has life is constantly attracting to itself the conditions and the supply which is necessary for it’s most complete expression”

This is easily seen in the amazing way nature exploits all the energy and resources it needs to create life, it never holds back or decides in advance as to whether there will be enough of whatever to grow something; it just does it now!  The seed of a plant has the plan, the intention and the necessary knowledge to do it’s stuff.

Our thoughts, ideas and predominant emotional states are seeds!!  They all have access to the resources required to come into being.  This work we are doing is about germinating the seeds of only the crop we wish to harvest; choosing our thoughts, intentions and emotional state so as to manifest our definite purpose.  Application of this knowledge to create deliberately rather than float along with the majority of folk who are complaining about having no power over their future life.  Blaming and making excuses for the lack in their life. Og’s description of sheep on the way to the slaughterhouse of failure is so apparent in our society today, however no more than at anytime in history.

Those with the knowledge we are developing have always influenced the outcomes of the masses; who are you wanting to be now, the sheep or the lion?

With our knowledge and the application of right thinking and feeling we are taking the power into our own hands, to create the future we desire.  Allowing the universal powers to unfold ahead of us in direct correlation to our definite purpose.

I don’t know how others went with the ‘cone’ but at first I found this a challenging visualisation exercise, then it clicked and popped in to vision and changed colours as desired.  Didn’t do this consistently though.

Og Mandino had us loving everyone including ourselves as a powerful success tool; how can it not be when “who is there that will say nay to my goods when his heart feels my love” . This is the passage I have chosen to carry forth into the next scroll.

Our end of week 10 webinar highlighted the value of persistence in success at any endeavour; uncovering though that it is more than just not quitting.  Persistence is staying the course, doing the correct actions and thinking correct thoughts consistently until you succeed.  Not quitting can mean sitting in your own crap longer than you need to, a bad marriage, a bad business, a bad job because you are fearful of taking the next steps; totally different stuff.

quit

I did struggle a bit with the opening passages in the scroll 3, about the grading of bulls for fighting.  The persistent bull being graded high and going into battle for show at a later date; the logical me saw the non aggressive bull as the winner as he probably ends his life much more peacefully.  However keeping in mind the message of persistence and the era of the writing I have let that go and focus on the message with each read.

“I will persist until I succeed”

Week 9 – Dieting, Loving and Making Pictures

G’Day and Happy Monday!

Sorry for being late getting this up, no excuses just late.

This week in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance has been punctuated with a very resilient old blue print stomping around in it’s room making a hell of a racket, banging on the now locked gate screaming old paradigms.  Aspects of my previous way of thinking, allowing and giving in dangled like rewards if I just slacken right off.

Well thanks to popping into the Alliance area and reading some other member’s writing, reviewing the video for the week I am feeling much more aligned with the process ahead.  This was of course enhanced today with a skype chat with my ‘hands on’ guide Carol, what a lovely lady and full of support and encouragement.

The mental diet has been going very well and has helped me to stay ahead of any negative self talk about my application of the MKMMA course.  I am still here and still persisting until I succeed (Thanks Og)

The power of love as a way to build rapport and to shield against the negativity of others has been a powerful message for the last 30 days and I will miss the daily reads of that scroll.  Going into each new arena with the intention to love all you encounter changes everything.  It is the primary goal ahead of all previously important aspects of encounters.  I look forward to meeting difficult folk just to feel it.

Reminded by Haanel once again that all I require to be happy and successful is available in the world within, that the predominant mental and emotional state is what is going to create my future ….  everything.

holdingback

The introduction of a truth affirmation has been interesting, as I have never been a great user of affirmations; this one however has struck a chord and has been quickly memorised for use anytime.

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!  I will create a personal affirmation with this at it’s core that like this core will be used regularly through the day to replace quickly any discordant thinking.

The Law of Growth is at the centre of the visualisation during the sit.  I will need to brush up on my clarity of vision in these exercises as I can see more and more creating a clear vision and attaching positive emotions to it is the activation of the Law of Attraction; something we all desire to master I am certain.

So regardless of a very crazy work life and the starting of a new enterprise I am digging in here and will be extremely appreciative of any prodding and encouragement flowing my way from my guide and the alliance.  I can see the power in what we are all training to be here and look forward to hearing all the great stories of success over the years directly connected to the decision to join in on the Master Key Master Mind Alliance class of 2014.

Week 8 – Re-adjusting and The Mental Diet

G’Day and Happy Friday!

From Emmet Fox Essay The Mental Diet 1935

Emmet Fox wants me to be very clear about this. if I change my mind my
conditions must change too. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
So now I will see that my mental diet is really the most important thing in my
whole life.

From Charles Haanel Master Key System 8-18/19 1912

18. The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions,
environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual,
characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while
when you are in church, or have just read a good book, BUT your predominant
mental attitude is what counts.
19. You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and
expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes
of strong, positive, creative thought.

With the world within being the cause of the experience we have it makes sense to be very deliberate in what we say and think each minute of every day.  It makes a lot of sense to make like the reaper and be conscious of what seeds we sow in the fertile soil of our subconscious; as this ultimately becomes the crop of predominant thought patterns each minute of every day.

With the principles fully explained so far regarding the conscious minds role as a gatekeeper to the ‘subbie’ because the ‘subbie’ does not have the capacity to reason or evaluate the information coming into it.  From our own thought, our consistent words used and of course the inputs from our environment.

Our ‘Mental Diet’ exercise this week adds to the no opinion discipline of past weeks and the start of the 7 day mental diet (7 days of no negative thoughts, restarting fresh with any slip to the negative unless caught and substituted within a few seconds); is the cessation of television for a week.

Out of this trio of challenging improvements, having and sharing no opinion has been the most difficult to master; lucky we don’t have a 7 day restart each time on this aspect.

I find as I have expertise in a variety of areas there is often something I wish to share to add value, however to do this is to invite the ego in for a run about as an uninvited guest. It is not my place to judge and decide anyone needs my uninvited opinion on any subject, let alone unsolicited advice as an expert. Stand back!! Listen and learn more about everybody.

The ‘No Negative Thought Diet’ has been much easier, however this only comes as a result of many many years of being more aware and mindful of how I think, realising early in my personal development that optimism and positive thought had far more to offer than pessimism and negativity.  All that said, the first few days had a few restarts included as thoughts slipped past the keeper before caught and substituted for a better choice.

No Television!! Well I thought it would be like that anyhow. In truth I am a little surprised how little I miss sitting with that old mate.  Time shared with the gorgeous Georgie has been more engaged, dinner on the verandah listening to the birds or frogs and cicadas depending how late we have left eating.

So the diet so far;

Form no judgement or opinion unless asked as an expert, allows the forming of a curiosity and increased attention to the details of life.

No negative thinking, requires the predominant thinking to be positive as a result of the duality of our thoughts; always seeking a new positive view of each situation to exclude the negative.

No TV, stops the crap coming in without being able to consciously filter it all out, while of course filling the mind with course content like the reading, the purpose, the plan of actions and service cards, the visualisation and movie posters.  Freeing up time every single day that was previously wasted, to complete promises.

The bike below had become a victim of procrastination and now we are enjoying each others company again.  Better thinking, more time and of course, “I always keep my promises” and “do it now!” ringing in my mind.

The re-adjustment, well the old blue print was finding excuses not to compete tasks and to not find time.  This week I pick up the baton of my personal race again and will come to the line a winner in March next year at the completion of this Master Key Master Mind Experience.

Week 7 – Shapes, Colours, Movie Poster, no opinion, linguistics and the start of a ‘Mental Diet’

As the assault on the ‘old blueprint’ continues from all learning styles; its resistance is evident daily.

I’d love to be writing about all the big epiphanies and breakthroughs, to be honest though I must be getting close to the seam of gold.  It feels that way and I know in my whole being that the disciplines and work, the mental labour, are equipping me for an amazing future. The field of diamonds is in my possession yet not feeling the gems are being gathered up.

Understanding the various learning styles are being deployed here to ensure all aspects are covered, coloured shapes may not be a primary tool of association for me.

My focus on my Definite Major Purpose and creating the intent to unfold it all is going well, my confidence and excitement for the future me is high and stable.  The Master Key Master Mind Process and the teams approach is of the highest of value; a unique offering in the personal development arena.

No opinions has opened my eyes to that compulsion to add my bit, even though deep down knowing it wasn’t adding value.  This has almost stopped and is becoming something I intend to continue for life, good grooming of the ego and setting boundaries for him.  Though having done so well, two of our adult children announced their new diet regimes this week which stimulated a cascade of opinion from me that I didn’t recognise until later in the day. Even though I am an expert in the field of health and nutrition, the opinion was not sought and was hardly a gift in retrospect.

The mental diet, seven days straight without a negative thought is a fun challenge, noticing and capturing the train of thought when conscious or having a restart after something slips past and becomes apparent.  No cursing self or others, no negative judgments of self or others.

I have been a pretty mindful person for some years and would be described as a positive optimistic person by friends and family, however this ‘mental diet’ has made me much more conscious of the struggle to project that image or behaviour.  There were initially a couple of days of restarts, frustrations with others and cranky at self moments. The deliberate restart of the seven days as a deterrent perhaps or even a trigger to be more heightened in my mindfulness to arrest the patterns has been very effective.  Today has been free of negative thought!!

I have had to manage around several obstacles this last two weeks, funny work patterns, fatigue and the sleep required to reset it.  Building a NWM business team slowly and putting on public wellness presentations to build some foundations for DMP unfoldment. So I am not in complete harmony with the alliance and a bit behind on some tasks.

On the upside things I have procrastinated over for a long time are getting done, my body is complaining about the exercise it has been exposed to and I am happy and exited about a business I had become complacent with.  All round a successful seven weeks (wow have never suck at a task with this level of focus that long before, I expect I am not the only one).

I can only encourage all those participating to continue and those looking on to get on board in the 2015 class.

This next week is a restart for me, I have days off coming up that are dedicating them to total absorption in MKMMA and go90grow (yes I am doing that too 🙂 )
