Master Key Week 4.2 – Peptides, peptides and peptides…

I wanted to end this week with a piece on the context from week 4 and how the addictive relationship we all have to certain neurotransmitters and that forces us to repeat behaviors that provide us with feelings that in turn trigger the production of these peptides to satisfy the craving of our cells.

Og Mandino writes in his “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Scroll 1:
“My actions are ruled by appetite, passion, prejudice, greed, love, fear, environment, habit, and the worst of these tyrants is habit. Therefore, if I must be a slave to habit let me be a slave to good habits. My bad habits must be destroyed and new furrows prepared for good seed.”

Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 4:
“27. From this it is evident that in order to express power, abundance or any other constructive purpose, the emotions must be called upon to give feeling to the thought so that it will take form. How may this purpose be accomplished? This is the vital point; how may we develop the faith, the courage, the feeling, which will result in accomplishment?
28. The reply is, by exercise; mental strength is secured in exactly the same way that physical strength is secured, by exercise. We think something, perhaps with difficulty the first time; we think the same thing again, and it becomes easier this time; we think it again and again; it then becomes a mental habit. We continue to think the same thing; finally it becomes automatic; we can no longer help thinking this thing; we are now positive of what we think; there is no longer any doubt about it. We are sure; we know.”

And starting to dig deeper into the material I realized that I have no chance to make a more thorough point than my friend and mentor Mark Januszewski  already did with his post for this week so here I give You this weeks guest blogger.
If You don´t already follow Mark´s blog You can do so here and I highly recommend You do and for You who already read this, jump to the last part and read the sentence I highlighted in bold blue – it so straight to the point and definitely deserves some thought!

Master Key System Week 4; Naughty Little Peptides?


There is tremendous pain and relief in knowing the choices I am are pretermined, for real, by what we affectionately call ‘the blueprint.’

Peptides: Naughty or Nice?
Peptides: Naughty or Nice?

Coping with the idea that not only are all the choices I make made about 4-6 seconds before my conscious mind knows the decision is made….is, well, bewildering.

No free will……..

Is this good news or is it bad news?

I guess it depends on a few things….


  1. Mood
  2. Ego
  3. Responsibility
  4. Forgiving
  5. Forgetting
  6. Fear
  7. Faith…..

Well, the list is endless, isn’t it?

The hard reality the stunning science behind the ‘blueprint’ idea is a thrill of a lifetime if I can lay my ego down and, here’s the biggie, comprehend, on some level, that my initial reaction is also ‘predetermined’ …..YIKES!

There is nothing in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance Experience that has been debated longer and debated with as much spirit…….as to when to introduce this mindbending, liberating, terrifying and exhilirating information.


It was never a question of ‘if’ but always when.

Lesson 4 of the Master Key System is, in and of itself, so intense…that the debate was …..too much in this week vs. the conclusion that the creator is within…..hmmmm

Will it blow people away?

Is that a good thing?

Is that a not good thing?

Maybe both?

In a nutshell, our cells……are addicted…to peptides released in massive quatities when we have a feeling…any feeling …the peptides we produce are linked to directly to feelings….a specific peptide for each feeling….and since the cells are addicted, even behaviors we want to modify, and sometimes do modify for a few days really have no chance to stick if the behavoirs interrupt the addiction.

This is why resolutions never work…..sooner or later the cells demand, [think addicition], for a particular peptide sends stronger and stronger messages to the brain….and the subby, that mysterious source that never sleeps…has us unconsciously making decisions that will create scenarios…..that trigger actions…..that will make us act contray to the behavior modification….and bang, they get their “fix.’

Those naughty little peptides…

Here’s the proof….

Change…..go for it ….


That is the choice, isn’t it?

Master Key Lesson 4.5: The greatest and most marvelous power which this “I” has been given is the power to think, but few people know how to think constructively, or correctly, consequently they achieve only indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind. When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.

And there it is…..for me….the liberty. The “I” can think.

For me it was understanding that I was just beginning to learn to think….and, if, with effort I could learn to think from the “I” it would be possible to create a new, clear reality ….the trick was ….how do I drive it into the subby?…..and create new peptides?….and get the cells additiced to peptides of my choice instead of defaulting to my addiction

If I wanted peptides for joy, liberty….harmony….peace of mind…..if I identified a vision that would trigger positive peptides and reinforced them, with triggers that keep them, on several levels within my consciousness, change would be not just possible, it would be a done deal.

That ol' blueprint wants it's fix and is cunning, like any addict
That ol’ blueprint wants it’s fix and is cunning, like any addict

But time….and the emotional and business and physical enrironments I live in made this a challenge…..wiat, was that the old blueprint rationalizing……OK, now I can see how complicated this is……or is it?

Is that the old blueprint too?
BAM! Yes….I realized I was addicted to, among other things…using ‘time’ as an excuse to trigger feelings that would produce peptides. A NON-JUDGEMENTAL look at my ‘pattern’ would, if I was honest…and asked the 2 honest-with-me friends I had to verify and or expand on my findings.

Here was my pattern, one of many.

I would get a good idea…from someone, something I read….and use ‘time’ …not having the time to do it….to feel like a victim and that great phrase, which my friend verified…came rolling off my lips….

The phrase? “If only….’

If only I had the time….
If only I had the money
If only I had saved more money…
If only I had the disipline….

I wanted to use MY LIFE as an excuse for my life?
Holy Batman.

Those 2 friends laughed and said, “YES! You are constantly using the phrase ‘if only’”


And, oddly enough, I’m reading the solution every day….

It is in ‘the sit’

The ‘sit’ and quieting the mind, for me, was probably not going to be enough….whoops, old blueprint.

The trail of thought leads me to another truth about me … me……not trying and doing because of the fear….”what if I do this and it doesn’t work for me?”

And Haanel shatters that notion…..”it requires work, hard mental labor that so many are unwilling to do.”

The sit, while in a sit one day…..reveals the solution. It is in the sit, not just sitting to sit, to “do the exercise” but to really concentrate…..and I really sucked at it.

The "Sit"? WIll it pay off for me?
The “Sit”? WIll it pay off for me?

Those naughty old-blueprint cell addicted peptides kept telling me it wouldn’t work for me….and I did not have the time…..

BAM! I read and begin affirming…..I can be what I will to be.

Is it possible I am addicted to including myself in the ‘most people’ Throreau identified……”Most people live lives of quiet desperation?”

Then, out of the blue…..divine inspiration…..something fighting to make itself known in the subby…..prayer….luck…..who cares…..I surrender and remember something from my days in college, where I was an English major……..and, the subby never forgets…..funny how it happened.

I keep thinking….too hard….

BABBIT pops into my head…

“Clear the mechanism!” I demand of myself.

Voice says “BABBIT”

Clear the mechanism!” I yell.

Quiet the mind… I had been practicing….


I’m pissed.


So I give up….listen to the voice and the last line of Babbit pops into my head……



All those years if pondering “most people live lives of quiet desperation” …was me, was Babbit.

And the peptides were not ‘naughty’ …..I had created them…..

And since I had created them……I could create new ones!

It only required 2 things……if Haanel was correct. If I did these 2 things…..the methods, [which some of you now know, Index cards, Og, shapes] would appear…..

The 2 things?

I had to do these 2 things or default to what I had.

I needed something stronger.

Drive that new blueprint with a clear vision and FEELINGS
Drive that new blueprint with a clear vision and FEELINGS

Are some peptides stronger?


My feeling needed to be stronger……deeper, intense….

The 2 things?

1. Decide what I want….not the person who had been conditioned but the “I”….what did my authentic self want?

2. The sit. I knew genius would reveal itself in the sit. Not me being the genius…..but the genius of ideas that would provide the methods……the pathyway to bliss…

So……who is your authentic self and what do you want?

Who knew that all those years I was telling my 3 English Setters to ‘sit’ I was repeating the one word I needed to hear. Go figure……

        Robert, it’s great to see how you are making the rounds. I know for a fact that Claes is not even close to being one of the five members under you on the blogroll. Good show!

  1. Robert D Watkins

    Thanks so much for compiling all these excellent resources for we who are going through the Master Key #MKMMA experience. Peace be the journey!

      “When I perform it often it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit this is my will.”
      You´re so spot-on, Deirdre, lets blast our cells with new peptides!

      Mahalo, I appreciate You!

    Hello, Claes. I notice you’ve taken Marea’s five-minute blog post idea, and turned it into a perfect example of what we all – members and guides – can do with blog posts written by somebody else – especially, when those “somebody else’s” have the initials M J. Although, quite frankly, the preamble you wrote says much more than enough to keep any post more than simply afloat. It is a full
    load all by itself! Well done!

    I love the way you did a guide-worthy job of bringing/linking Og with his portrayal of the negative side of habit with Haanel’s positive portraiture. Your bold blue, which highlights Mark’s last line, underscores a terrific ending, doesn’t it? With my fascination for poetic rhyme, in general, reading your prelude gave me a chance to notice how habit rhymes with Babbitt. Sinclair Lewis’s book, Babbitt, is largely a satire of American culture, society and behavior as expressed primarily by the middle class – when, in fact, America still had a middle-class. Nonetheless, the same ruling class pressure that took the inherited conformity that existed almost 100 years ago and worsened it in ways Mr. Lewis wrote about was, of course, a product of habit – as are all the “whipped-dog” sheeple that can be seen in all their splendor herding through the shopping malls around Christmas time today. It’s time we change all that. Yay for MKMMA!

    I was so impressed when I read Mark’s post that I chopped it up into twitter size pieces and buffered all of them. That worked out to 60 tweets! More than enough, if they were instead candy treats, to help fill the bags of several dozen Halloween trick-or-treaters with a health, hurting payload of too many sweets.But it’s Halloween after all, and so I say, as long as it doesn’t become a habit, it’s okay a few times a year for kids to have it. 🙂

      Wow, Loren, thank You so much for taking the time to write this awesome comment!
      Love Your idea to turn Mark´s blog into tweets and Your book tip, I really enjoy reading and hope to find that book in Europe.

      Mahalo, I appreciate You!
