Master Key Week 7.2 – Guest Blogger Martin on “Will”

So, this weekend has been special to me in several ways, I´m spending it in Macedonia, Greece, at a marvelous mountain resort and visits to same amazing places.
And an internet connection that barely allows me to send a tweet – lots of chances to remind me that I meet every day, person and situation with love in my heart 😀

With that let me give You this weeks (well, actually last weeks – yesterday I could not post…) guest blogger who baffled me with his determination looking up the seemingly simple word “will” in a dictionary.

And I´m so glad he did that for all of us!

Here´s Martins post for week 7:

Week 7 – To will or not to will

This has been an interesting week. Some good progress, but also a tough week, with energy levels lower than the past 6 weeks.

When we switched across to the new scroll, we were told to read the “wills” again. As it is against my “will” (refer to the 5th meaning below) to mark any book permanently, I mentally removed the wills. The result of this was that for the first couple of days I was automatically leaving the wills out, out of will.

I then started focussing on them, and intentionally emphasised them. This brought the scroll to life. I realised that the word felt different in the various sentences. I grabbed a dictionary (on-line), and found the following meanings for this simple little word

1 Expressing the futuretense: you will regret it when you are older

1.1 Expressing a strong intention or assertion about the future: come what may, I will succeed

2 Expressing inevitable events: accidents will happen

3 Expressing desire, consent, or willingness: will you have a cognac?

4 Expressing facts about ability or capacity: a rock so light that it will float on wateryour tank will hold about 26 gallons

5 Expressing habitualbehaviour: she will dance for hours

6 Expressing probability or expectation or faith (my addition) about something in the present: they will be miles away by now

These different meanings have added interesting interpretations to the scroll. It has also assisted me to add meaning to the affirmation from 4.9 of Haanel’s Master Keys “I can be what I will to be”. On that note I subscribe to a service called “Notes from the Universe”, and I received this note yesterday – “Martin, it’s as if YOU were custom designed to have a fabulous definite major purpose alligned with my needs. It’s perfect for you.” How awesome is this – “I can be what I will to be”.

Week 7 of Master Keys, has been an “eye opener” for me. I really can’t highlight any aspect of it, as I would just be repeating the whole lesson. The “Power” we have is incredible, and we are well on the way to developing it. Like many in the alliance section, I have had difficulty “seeing” my friends face when I close my eyes, but can easily “see” him in my minds eye. I need to put in some hard mental labour as mentioned in par 7.4.

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:
