Master Key week 18 – Follow Your Bliss

“30. The race has usually been for money and other mere symbols of power, but with an understanding of the true source of power, we can afford to ignore the symbols. The man with a large bank account finds it unnecessary to load his pockets down with gold; so with the man who has found the true source of power; he is no longer interested in its shams or pretensions.
31. Thought ordinarily leads outwardly in evolutionary directions, but it can be turned within where it will take hold of the basic principles of things, the heart of things, the spirit of things. When you get to the heart of things it is comparatively easy to understand and command them.
32. This is because the Spirit of a thing is the thing itself, the vital part of it, the real substance. The form is simply the outward manifestation of the spiritual activity within.

33. For your exercise this week concentrate as nearly as possible in accordance with the method outlined in this lesson; let there be no conscious effort or activity associated with your purpose. Relax completely, avoid any thought of anxiety as to results. Remember that power comes through repose. Let the thought dwell upon your object, until it is completely identified with it, until you are conscious of nothing else.
34. If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.
35. If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.
36. If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.
37. Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XVII

As You might know I´ve had a turletgo_2bulent time in my life for the last month or so and in addition to that I launched what we call a “90 day run” for my business which basically means talking to a lot more people than ever before in my life.
I mentioned in last weeks post that ramping up the minimum daily contacts has been so much easier than expected and I´m mesmerized by my consistence and stability while taking on the daily tasks.

Especially as I have a confession to make here, prospecting on the phone is NOT my favorite and having to deal with some of the excuses and BS people bring up is nowhere near my choice for fun.

So what has this all to do with Joseph Campbells advice to “Follow Your Bliss”?

Well, as it turns out it has everything to do with it!

Finally during my sit today I gained some understanding of why the daily routine of contacting people finally has become not only bearable but actually desirable.

It´s the shortest, most direct and smooth way to manifest my DMP that I have access to right now. And that means by doing the work and sticking to the plan

The work itself might not be that blissful, just as hauling water and fetching firewood hundreds of years ago probably not was anyones idea of having fun. Just as these activities ensured survival of self and family, the work we do today is what ensures survival and manifestation of our dreams.
And in pursuing our dreams there can be only joy!

Funny enough my Subby knew that long before I did – my conscious mind rejected the thought out of habit and “pretended not to know”!

heroofownstoryNow is the time to up the ante and start getting better at the daily tasks, the habit has been formed a lot faster than I could ever have hoped for and I´ve started to improve my skills.

“I increase my knowledge of mankind, myself and the goods I sell, thus my sales multiply. I practice and improve and polish the words I utter to sell my goods, for this is the foundation on which I build my career and I never forget that many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk , delivered with excellence.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” The Scroll Marked IV

So, that leaves us with the “Bliss Part” of the whole equation and I´d like to share a short video by some people who did some tiny bit of what the future holds for me:

Please leave a comment below, tell me what´s Your Bliss – what You´re working to manifest in Your life – and share this post with friend and loved ones who might benefit!

Mahalo, I appreciate You!

Week 21 – Old habits die hard…

Lots of thoughts this week, most of them relating to what I perceive as my “old blueprint” raising it´s head and biting me more often than I would have ever expected in week 21.

Then something hit me… I´ve been simultaneously adding in good new habits into my life while still keeping quite a few old ones… And that isn´t really what Og recommended:

“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the differences of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure. Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is – I will form good habits and become their slave.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, Scroll I

So on the one side I made some HUGE improvements, on the other I let these get mixed up with stuff I should have let go of and the result has been a pretty messed up brain and quite a bit of struggle to get the improvements going…

Two_wolvesIn an earlier post Giving Permission I made reference to the old saying represented in this picture and must admit that I missed to ask a pretty important question…

What if I feed them both???

There are only two types of people in the world, depending on which of the wolves we feed!
Or are there???

“This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
Shakespeare, “Hamlet Act 1, Scene 3”

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
Sun Tzu, “The Art of War”

If these quotes, and the thousands other like them, have it right this Master Keys Experience wields us into real masters. I´m so grateful that I not only become enough of an observer in my life to identify what´s actually going on (What am I pretending not to know?), I´ve also developed a patience with and love for myself to accept the kind advice from my future self(What would the person I intend to become do next?).

One thing I pretended not to know was that engaging in some of these old habits (and quite a heros-journey-cycle1few of them weren´t even bad ones…) actually made the creation and adopting of new habits harder for me.
Another thing I pretended not to know was that the old bad habits I chose to continue engaging in played the roll of triggers for my refusal of the call. I was obstructing my conscious efforts of being a hero in my own life.
Finally, for here, I created an unnecessary duality within myself that in turn made me miss out on so much joy and fulfillment, being occupied justifying my not so good choices kept me from enjoying most of the good ones I´d made.

So, what would the person I intend to become do next?

First let me go back to something I wrote in that same post:

“I promise to give my future Self the gift of Silence more then once a day, I promise to listen to the Silence often, to educe all the good habits my future Self will ever need and then some more, all the wisdom I´m capable of educing and all the kindness I can imagine.
I always keep my promises!

I hereby declare that I willingly and consciously give myself the permission to access the power within me and allow it to grow, the permission to be the best I can be, the permission to be happy for no particular reason, be in harmony with myself, the world and all creatures in it.
I forgive myself unconditionally for not having granted myself this permission earlier!”

Do You see what´s missing???

I now also give myself permission to put all habits that no longer serve me to rest, I´m grateful for what they have given me in the past as I gracefully and lovingly allow my life to continue without these blessings to allow my journey towards greater and loftier blessings.
Also I give myself permission to be increasingly kind to myself in regard to what i perceive as short comings and generously reward any behavior that supports developing the person I intend to become.

This all has led me to make some minor adjustments to my DMP and POA that took more pressure of my heart than I could have imagined. Life is so good!

To round this up I found this video that really inspired me and goes so well along with the MK course, I hope You enjoy it!
