What´s Your thing?

Being close to nature has always been important to me and one way to keep my sanity in a world that sometimes has been to filled with stress, demands and other peoples agendas for me.
Just a week or two in the relative solitude You can experience while hiking a mountain range were not to many people set their feet each year has always done it for me and finding out that my wife, the Marvelous Maria, shares my passion for nature was of course a large bonus in our relationship.

So, this year we wanted to do something special and now, when this post hits the air we´ve been out for 4 weeks and are heading back to civilization tomorrow. Hopefully we´re right now in (or really closed to) Abisko in Lappland were we plan to spend the last night before returning.

In the next post I will share what four entire weeks of the grid ment for us and until then I wish You all the best, please enjoy the short video!

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!

Week 17 – Giving Permission!

This week started out with an insight that at the same time was very annoying and deliberating. Well, I guess that goes for most of them…

At the webcast on Sunday Mark brought up the need for everyone to give ourselves PERMISSION to live the life we were born to live, to free ourselves from ”The River of Dreams” and really dig in there chopping of the cement covering the GOLD that´s really us.

Living in the east European time zone it was, as always, way past bed time when we finally got to sleep and on Monday morning I was waking up with a total lack of energy, not only due to the late night on Sunday, the last few weeks had been filled with a series of insufficient sleep, sub-par food choices and late night social media.

To make matters worse one sentence of my DMP reads:

“To fuel my body with the needed energy I chose to eat Paleo 90% of the time, prioritize sleep and work out developing strength, conditioning and mobility 4x/week or more.”

Which basically means I´ve been lying to myself 3x/day or, to be less harsh, at least failed to meet my own standard for my future self…

Not really my favorite insight on any morning…

So, where did this all come from?

Well, of course from my ”old blueprint” fighting the change, the ”cement” clinging on to me and old (bad) habits lifting their dragon heads spitting venom at the new reality.

All starting with my decision to put some serious effort into my business followed by a major, though surprisingly easy, increase in activity.

What seemed easy to accomplish became fought against on another level, all because – and here we go – I had´t given myself PERMISSION to be the person I intend to become. I was DOING the right things right in one area and at the same time subconsciously setting myself up for temporary defeat by undermining my own energy levels and over time making what had become easy through working the exercises of the Master Key Experience hard to do through self sabotage.

Hmm, how is that for being ”the observer” – I´m pretty darn proud of catching myself just two short weeks into this and being able to make the conscious choice to change that subconscious behavior.

Two_wolves
And the best part is that just a short time ago I would not only not have noticed my slipping that soon, I´d also wasted a lot of time feeling bad about it, beating myself up and reinforcing previous experiences of unworthiness.

Don´t You just LOVE the ”Law of Substitution”, ” The Law of Dual Thought” and the ”Law of Growth”???

This just made me think of the ”sacrifice” part of the DMP, what we´re willing to give up in order to get our dream. Frankly I always had a hard time with that part, both in my own DMP and when helping other people develop theirs. Now it hits me as being merely ”giving up” the person I have been (and that served my survival very well) for the person I intend to become, choosing to

“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.”
(Og Mandino, ”The Greatest Salesman”, Scroll I)

because:

“3. Difficulties, inharmonies, and obstacles, indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.
4. Growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new, of the good for the better; it is a conditional or reciprocal action, for each of us is a complete thought entity and this completeness makes it possible for us to receive only as we give.
5. We cannot obtain what we lack if we tenaciously cling to what we have. We are able to consciously control our conditions as we come to sense the purpose of what we attract, and are able to extract from each experience only what we require for our further growth. Our ability to do this determines the degree of harmony or happiness we attain.”
Charles Hannel, ”The Master Key System”, Part XV

“The same dualism underlies the nature and condition of man. Every excess causes a defect; every defect an excess. Every sweet hath its sour; every evil its good. Every faculty which is a receiver of pleasure has an equal penalty put on its abuse. It is to answer for its moderation with its life. For every grain of wit there is a grain of folly. For every thing you have missed, you have gained something else; and for every thing you gain, you lose something.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, ”Essays: First Series, Essay III”

“24. It is neither good nor bad, it simply is.
25. Our ability to differentiate it into form is our ability to manifest good or evil.
26. 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.
27. If our thought is constructive and harmonious we manifest good; if it is destructive and discordant we manifest evil.”
Charles Hannel, ”The Master Key System”, Part XVI

So, lets bring this all together, shall we?

In my understanding this means that there´s nothing wrong with the ”cement”, the ”old blueprint” or the habits created and appropriated by me earlier in life. They all served their purpose in someway, some of them in really good ways.

They just don´t serve MY purpose now, they don´t help me advance my life as I´m becoming the person I intend to become.

And that´s why they have to go, that´s why I just need to release them and let them go in peace – while at the same time consciously appropriating and start to LIVE only the habits that support my future self.

live the life
And I know which habits these are, I have seen them all around and even experienced them in myself at different times – meaning I don’t have to acquire anything, learn anything or create anything, merely educe them from within and let them grow.

“10. Spiritual Truth is therefore the controlling factor; it is this which will enable you to grow out of limited attainment and reach a point where you will be able to translate modes of thought into character and consciousness.
11. Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.” Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached.
12. The mind may place the ideal a little too high and fall short of the mark; it may attempt to soar on untrained wings and instead of flying, fall to earth; but that is no reason for not making another attempt.
13. Weakness is the only barrier to mental attainment; attribute your weakness to physical limitations or mental uncertainties and try again; ease and perfection are gained by repetition.”……..

“24. Intuition usually comes in the Silence; great minds seek solitude frequently; it is here that all the larger problems of life are worked out. For this reason every businessman who can afford it has a private office, where he will not be disturbed; if you cannot afford a private office you can at least find somewhere, where you can be alone a few minutes each day, to train the thought along lines which will enable you to develop that invincible power which is necessary to achieve.
25. Remember that fundamentally the subconscious is omnipotent; there is no limit to the things that can be done when it is given the power to act. Your degree of success is determined by the nature of your desire. If the nature of your desire is in harmony with Natural Law or the Universal Mind, it will gradually emancipate the mind and give you invincible courage.
26. Every obstacle conquered, every victory gained, will give you more faith in your power, and you will have greater ability to win. Your strength is determined by your mental attitude; if this attitude is one of success, and is permanently held with an unswerving purpose, you will attract to you from the invisible domain the things you silently demand.”
Charles Hannel, ”The Master Key System”, Part XVII

Which brings us back to ”The Sit” – the other exercises, DMP, shapes 2015-01-20 09.57.06
and colors, mental diet, make over and every other aid – and still, ”The Sit”, the Silence.

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!

So, lets end this rather lengthy post with a rather lengthy video – please bear with me to the end, it´s definitely worth the time!
