Master Key Week 7 – Inexplicable things

You know how Mark, Dave and Trish always talk about “inexplicable things” that happen?

Well, this last weekend I was enjoying an absolutely fantastic trip to one of the best hotels in Cyprus arranged by a company I work with. Outstanding accommodation, brilliant itinerary and marvelous people. Saturday we went on a jeep safari, I ended up in a vehicle with a group that was a perfect fit for me, crazy funny driver, a lady (Bez) from Brooklyn who took her daughter Brianna on a four-day-trip to Cyprus for her 16th birthday, Latina from Florida, Hayley Mix (yes, that´s her real last name) and, last but not least, Mr Phil (Philip) from Nigeria living in London.

During the drive I recorder this short video:

Turns out that Hayley works as a sales person for medical equipment and naturally meets a lot of MD´s. One of them, who regularly meets cancer patients in the last stage of life, told her a story that she passes on to us later in the car and was kind enough to repeat for me on video:

Isn´t that awesome?

Lets apply this to what we´re doing here!

If virtually everyone (assuming other doctors have the same experience with dying patients) of us will, in the final analysis of things, find experiencing life and interacting with loved ones more important than careers and money, why don´t just go for those things?

What does science has to say? Dr Joe Dispenza:

So everyone going through this Master Key Experience is absolutely spot on and it´s getting even better – we´re in a peer group that actually supports us in our efforts to change and grow into the person we intend and are intended to become.

How cool is that???

Shooting a video in a car just to get the importance of that verified by a true story told virtually just minutes later, followed by fretting out the video with Dr Joe while actually looking for something else…

How did that happen?

Thank You so much for taking the time to visit my blog, please leave a comment below and tell me what You think (honor me and Yourself by providing answers to the questions).

Please share this post with friends and family as well as people who might benefit!

I appreciate You!

What do we consider important?

Sometimes I just stop in my tracks and have to think about what´s really important to me and other people, let me give You an example:

Every now and then I post something on Facebook regarding the environment, this being information on how a large cooperation knowingly poison half of a beautiful, tropical island or how another multinational concern historically developed from the company producing the gas used in the holocaust. Even how these two cooperations plan to merge and how that might not be the best idea for You, me or the rest of the planet…

Usual response here – 1 or 2 likes and maybe a share (if that was from You – Mahalo!!!)

A few weeks ago I cut my hair, going from a pony tail to a rather short hair style. Leaving the shop I took a selfie to send to my wife and later used that 2015-07-08 14.29.44same pic for my profile on Facebook.

Response – 152 likes and over 40 comments in less than 48 hours!

Made me feel like a celebrity :-D, and got me thinking…

How come that a minor change in my personal appearance resulted in so many reactions while facts and circumstances with the capacity to impact our world forever do not?

Is it just easier for most people to take action on minor stuff?
Do the more important  issues overwhelm us?
Or, does everything drown in the never ending flow of information, leaving with us with attention spans only allowing entrance of minor news into our consciousness?

Anyway, right after I started asking myself these questions I saw the video below again and just found it a perfect reflection of the situation.
I´m certainly guilty of being distracted by the outer world and even though the Master Key Experience has helped immensely to focus better and look inside for answers I´m still not at the point I want to be.

Which I´m totally ok with as I have the tools, methods and skills necessary to do something about it, and, thanks to the next course starting late September, anyone can learn them so if You feel that inclination just fill out the form below and be among the first to receive information about the launch!

There´s just nothing like it!

In the meantime please check out the short video below and tell me what You think, ok?

Let´s start moving on that compass

I don´t know if You´ve ever been in that situation but a few years ago I was hiking with a friend, both him and I very used to move around in the mountains combining some 45 years of experience. With just one more night left we start in the morning and pretty soon get wrapped up in low clouds with visibility down to virtually 15 meters or less at times.compass
As we both knew the area from several previous tours we committed the cardinal mistake of convincing ourselves that we knew where we were going and just didn´t unpack the compass…

Needless to say we got ourselves in a situation where none of us had a clue where we were or how to get to where we were going – ever seen that happen in life???
Well, I´ve seen it happen in my life countless times – being stuck in habits, doing things a certain way believing I was doing the right thing, just most of the time getting lost while following something outside of myself. Distrusting my self, my instincts and my inner voice and instead turning myself inside out by trying to live by others ideals.

Which brings us to a similar situation as above mentioned just a few days ago, my wife, the Marvelous Maria, and I have developed a habit of paddle boarding in the morning and the other day we were greeted by a wonderfully foggy_supsmooth see and…a lot of fog…
Frankly, the guys at the water sport center didn´t want us to go out at all…

It´s good we knew what we wanted and were willing to trust our selves, at times we didn´t even see the next buoy marking the swimmers area. Anyway we stayed our course and made it there and back again, easy as we used the tools and skills available to us.

And that´s what the Master Key´s all about for me!

In the latest post I began to write about the project I´m launching this fall to turn the downward spiraling health of the human race around and for me it´s all about addressing the kids as most adults are far to entangled in their habits to be easily accessible or even approachable.
To influence the kids we need to get into the channels of information they enjoy to use, which basically boils down to social media, gaming and conforming with their peers. Needless to say it´ll take some money to utilize the first to (and BTW that´s the way to influence the nature of peer pressure they´re conforming to).

During that SUP tour through the fog an idea was born and later refined in the sit:

Later this year, right now it looks like mid November I´ll hike major parts of the E4 trail on Cyprus, from Larnaca to the Akamas peninsula and the city of Polis, which is about 220km or 135 miles. At Agios Georgios I´ll exchange my hiking gear for a SUP board and paddle around Akamas, past Paphos and Limassol to finish at Makenzy beach in Larnaca just a few hundred meters from the start.
Right now I have all the equipment I need for the first part, though I don´t have a board, no one tagging along in a boat for safety, and no plan “B”.
On the other hand I have the power of my subconscious that already has started working in mysterious ways, bringing circumstances, friends and strangers together to make this happen and I know that I know that I know, come November I stand on exactly the right board on exactly the right time and enough people follow, share and contribute so that the greater project can be launched on schedule before the year is at it´s end!

Of course I write about the experience as often as I can get to an internet connection (if You have a satellite to spare, please let me know) and do my best to get this adventure over to You alive and kicking.

If You think I can do this or not, if You want to contribute and can or can´t do so, or just want to put a though out there, PLEASE comment below and share with Your friends what´s going on.

Mahalo, I appreciate You!

Happiness and The Law of Growth

“Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.”
Og Mandino, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, The Scroll marked VIII

With these words starts this months scroll and I have to admit it raised some questions in me and even intimidated me in some ways.

  • Multiply my value a hundredfold?
  • Today?
  • HOW???
  • Is that even possible?

And most important: Is THAT what it takes??? Oh, scary…

Frankly I thought of putting the book down and skipping the rest and that´s where the habits I developed during the last few months kicked in and I took the matter into the sit 😉

So, what´s it all about?

Well, my take here is that Mandino simply celebrates the Law of Growth – a law that I´ve been guilty of breaking so many times in my life.

Think about it – we human beings are the only species that have a choice in this matter, we can consciously make a decision not to grow.
Even more mind boggling is how many of us make that decision subconsciously or out of habit, to the point where, in this case, I actually got scared when Mandino so relentlessly reminded me of my natural state. Even after going thru the Master Key Experience I still defaulted into fear of my own nature and ability.

“It is man’s capacity to think that makes him a creator instead of a creature.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”

The wonderful paradox here is that the same ability to think also makes it possible for us to decide not to grow and thereby separating ourself from our natural state!

And when we´re separated from that natural state happiness becomes impossible, we can´t really default and be happy at the same time – it´s not in our genes…

Thankfully there´s a scientifically proven way to guarantee happiness and we went thru this progression during the Master Key Experience – and it works.

So, please, let me share this short video with You – I hope You enjoy it and make the choice to act on the information!

I laugh with my world!

“Scroll VII of Og Mandino´s ”The Greatest Salesman in the World” is all about taking life and especially ourselves less seriously.

“I will laugh at the world. And most of all, I will laugh at myself for man is most comical when he takes himself too seriously.”

What I´ve found during the most recent weeks is how the habit of disconnecting my emotional state from circumstances has become automatic, basically it does not matter what goes on in the outer world, my inner world stays balanced and at peace.

Waking up in the tent at -6℃ or 25℃ (21℉ or 77℉) only makes a difference in what actions I chose to perform to start my day, not in how I feel about the day. Having a jack rabbit run in under the car, turning around and take it back to the Ranger station has become an experience to be appreciated the same as running out of gas on I40 and being helped by a weird, nervous guy in a nearby facility, who filled up my water bottles with gas without charging me a dime after I trespassed on his property.

In an earlier post (put link here!!!!) I wrote about how I stopped sweat the small stuff – experiencing how this has expanded into me staying emotionally immensely more stable regardless of what happens around me is border lining being a miracle in itself. 

A miracle induced by scores of tiny new exercises and habits introduced to me by the Master Key Experienced and by adopting these I made sure the miracle was performed by…me.”

I wrote the above words little over a week ago looking to get this post up there Friday April 17th…

Little did I know that my internet host in Sweden was about to tighten their security and started blocking quite a lot of foreign IP-adresses – among them apparently every AT&T wifi as well as mobile internet from AT&T as well (so I couldn´t even access the blog from my phone…)

Needless to say this would have driven me crazy with frustration not long ago and now only became a further confirmation of my relatively new found self reliance.

I remember struggling for years with these lines:

“O God, give us the serenity to accept what cannot be changed,
The courage to change what can be changed,
and the wisdom to know the one from the other”
Reinhold Niebuhr

And it´s just amazing how my mind has trained itself to execute them almost automatically.
Not having to control outer circumstances or even classifying them as “good” or “bad” (because, frankly, who can say if the one or the other is true?) allows us to experience the moment in more complete ways.

Being at LAX on my way to the MKMMA live event in Kauai, I hope You´ll take a moment to watch this beautiful video from that gorgeous island:

Week 26 – And that was it… Or not?

And so we’re arriving at the end of the 26 week journey with the Master Key Experience!
Is it the end?
Really?

Well, of course not!!!

I’d rather describe it with a quote from Joseph Campbell:

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”

It’s actually up to each and every one of us to decide how to move on and how to use the tools and methods we learned.

Looking back over the past months I’m stoked about how much I gained from this course!

I’ve learned the four habits that lead to persistence, the five habits that provide happiness.
I’ve learned to train myself as an observer of self and others and how to connect with infinite intelligence, the source of all that is, ever has been and ever will be!
I’ve been given the tools to use and share that forever put me in the drivers seat of my life, allowing me to exercise my birthright of living life on my terms from a place of love!
Already during these short six months I’ve had so many experiences that were once just dreams, my self esteem has sky rocketed and fear disappeared.
Does this mean I never get startled or feel uneasy?
Surely not – more important, though, is that there is only confidence for the future, my path and my life. The comforting knowledge that I can handle anything because everything I encounter and experience is, on some level, of my own making and as such perfect – there is a perfect reason for everything, a wonderful law of nature orchestrated by an intelligence that lets us harvest what we have sown, every time!
And, most important, leaves us the ultimate choice if we want to sow the same seed again and again or change our crop to reap a different harvest in the future!

“21. Our environment and the innumerable circumstances and accidents of our lives already exist in the subconscious personality which attracts to itself the mental and physical material which is congenial to its nature. Thus our future being determined from our present, and if there should be apparent injustice in any feature or phase of our personal life, we must look within for the cause, try to discover the mental fact which is responsible for the outward manifestation.
22. It is this truth which makes you “free” and it is the conscious knowledge of this truth which will enable you to overcome every difficulty.
23. The conditions with which you meet in the world without are invariably the result of the conditions obtaining in the world within, therefore it follows with scientific accuracy that by holding the perfect ideal in mind you can bring about ideal conditions in your environment.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXIV

What will your choice be?

I wish, from the bottom of my heart, that you embark on this journey come September and that you get the same fulfillment and enjoyment out of it as I have.

Week 23 – Emotions and health!

So, for technical reasons this is gonna be a quite short post – my MacBook fell to the floor last night and the screen stopped working…
I connected a projector and can sit looking at the wall instead of a screen, let´s say its a tad uncomfortable for the neck.

On the other hand I´m impressed with my calmness in the situation, once more it´s a pleasure to observe how my reactions have changed.

Especially considering this weeks theme in the MK, Haanel describes how our thoughts and emotions affect our health.

“7. We are all using this power every minute. The trouble is most of us are using it unconsciously and thus producing undesirable results. The problem is to use it intelligently and produce only desirable results. This should not be difficult, because we all have had sufficient experience to know what produces pleasant vibration in the body, and we also know the causes which produce the unpleasant and disagreeable sensations.
8. All that is necessary is to consult our own experience. When our thought has been uplifted, progressive, constructive, courageous, noble, kind or in any other way desirable, we have set in motion vibrations which brought about certain results. When our thought has been filled with envy, hatred, jealousy, criticism or any of the other thousand and one forms of discord, certain vibrations were set in motion which brought about certain other results of a different nature, and each of these rates of vibration, if kept up, crystallized in form. In the first case the result was mental, moral and physical health, and in the second case discord, inharmony and disease.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Reading this it gets really obvious how a positive mental attitude does is not only good for business, it can literally be considered Life Saving!
Try the Mental Diet for Yourself and find out – just fill out the form to the right!

“13. The way to health is founded on the law of vibration, which is the basis of all science, and this law is brought into operation by the mind, the “world within.” It is a matter of individual effort and practice. Our world of power is within; if we are wise we shall not waste time and effort in trying to deal with effects as we find them in the “world without,” which is only an external, a reflection.
14. We shall always find the cause in the “world within”; by changing the cause, we change the effect.
15. Every cell in your body is intelligent and will respond to your direction. The cells are all creators and will create the exact pattern which you give them.
16. Therefore, when perfect images are placed before the subjective, the creative energies will build a perfect body.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XXII

Week 22 – Everything is a Miracle

Skärmklipp 2015-02-28 00.52.06I´ve always had a temper, well as long as I can remember, anyway, and at some point I learned that anger comes from feeling powerless. That actually disturbed me quite a bit, I didn´t want to admit powerlessness even to myself, much less showcase it to the world. Still I had a temper…

We´ve been asked in the Master Key Experience to think of ways how to use a few “negative” emotions as tools to advance our journey and move out of the comfort zone – one of these feelings being anger.
Hmm, I thought that would be a tough one…

Very soon I realized that a lot had changed, a few weeks ago I shared a major insight in my post “Stimulus – Choice – Response” and this just got even clearer.
I can´t even count all the situations that would have had me reacting, and limit myself, with anger or one of the other emotions. It seemed I have been to busy focusing on all the miracles around me to even consider “losing my temper”.
Frankly, I just LOVE the Law of Growth and the other Laws of the Mind that we´ve been encouraged to utilize during this experience.

Referring back to last weeks post “Old habits die hard…” I just have to admit being a little to hard on myself. While I certainly had kept (and still have…) some old bad habits, I need to give myself a pat (or two) on the shoulder for those I managed to let go.
Interesting how so many of us act as our own worst critic, something I didn´t even was aware of most of the time before and, when I was aware, I found it totally justified. At the end I knew that I wasn´t enough, ever felt similar?

Well, isn´t it great that we all just made that up, that, at some point in our lives, for some (at the time perfectly logical) reason, we learned to feel this unworthiness and during most of my life I never even questioned the truth of that belief. Have You?

einstein miracle quote
Personally I like the second alternative, living life as though everything is a miracle, a lot better and that presupposes that we are all miracles as well.
It´s like this thing about belief (discussed in an earlier post here), just finding a slightly different angle gives us a totally new experience at times.

 

 

“17. Do not hesitate to aspire to the highest possible attainments in anything you may undertake, for the mind forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will in the effort to crystallize its highest aspirations into acts, accomplishments, and events.
…..
19. There is no limit to what this law can do for you; dare to believe in your own idea; remember that Nature is plastic to the ideal; think of the ideal as an already accomplished fact.
…..
26. As long as the people regard the Cosmic power as a power non-human and alien to humanity, so long will it be comparatively easy for a supposed privileged class to rule by Divine right in spite of every protest of social sentiment. The real interest of democracy is therefore to exalt, emancipate and recognize the divinity of the human spirit. To recognize that all power is from within. That no human being has any more power than any other human being, except such as may willingly be delegated to him. The old regime would have us believe that the law was superior to the law-makers; herein is the gist of the social crime of every form of privilege and personal inequality, the institutionalizing of the fatalistic doctrine of Divine election.
27. The Divine Mind is the Universal Mind; it makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites; it does not act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy or wrath; neither can it be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy or petition to supply man with some need which he thinks necessary for his happiness or even his existence. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual; but when the individual understands and realizes his Unity with the Universal principle he will appear to be favored because he will have found the source of all health, all wealth, and all power.”

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!”
http://masterkey.beinggolden.com/week-17-giving-permission/

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!
