How to know what we really thought

I don´t know if You´re familiar with Michael Dooley, the guy behind the tiny daily newsletter ”Thoughts from the Universe” but I personally really like his stuff. It´s often funny (not all newsletters are), thought worthy (pretty few are) and true (that´s rare in todays world) and sometimes he hits me with something that really makes me stop in my tracks and focus for quite a while – that´s why its so good to check our email after all the important stuff is done… Sometimes (or rather often) we get distracted.
What distracted me this time was:

“Your physical senses give you many perks, Claes: smelling the flowers, sipping the cocoa, reading the funnies, and feeling the velvet, to name just a few. But perhaps their greatest gift lies in presenting you with the opportunity to assess the world around you at any given point in your life, to compare what you think you’ve been thinking to what you’ve really been thinking.”

Wait a second, read that again…

“Your physical senses give you many perks, Claes: smelling the flowers, sipping the cocoa, reading the funnies, and feeling the velvet, to name just a few. But perhaps their greatest gift lies in presenting you with the opportunity to assess the world around you at any given point in your life, to compare what you think you’ve been thinking to what you’ve really been thinking.

So what is really said here is that looking at our lives as they are today are showing us what and how our thoughts were in the past, giving us an awesome opportunity to evaluate what worked and what did not. Not in the sense of the world, just compared to how we wished/hoped/planned to live our life.
Not only can we make this analysis, we can also pretty easily figure out what part of our thinking to keep and which thoughts we need to replace with ones that serve our purpose better.

Maybe 10 years agoI discovered James Allens book ”As a Man Thinketh” and read in it now and then over the years and as it is recommended reading in the Master Key Experience i picked it up again and for the last month or so I´ve read parts of it quite often and would like to share a few paragraphs.

“Thought and character are one, and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstance, the outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state. This does not mean that a man’s circumstances at any given time are an indication of his entire character, but that those circumstances are so intimately connected with some vital thought-element within himself that, for the time being, they are indispensable to his development.
…….

Man is buffeted by circumstances so long as he believes himself to be the creature of outside conditions, but when he realizes that he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstances grow; he then becomes the rightful master of himself.”

So, as soon as we realize that our thoughts are the cause and our circumstances are the effects we can start replacing the ones that lead us away from where we want to go with such that supports our goals and dreams and with focus this process can be fairly quick and easy!

“Every thought brings into action certain physical tissue, parts of the brain, nerve
or muscle. This produces an actual physical change in the construction of the
tissue. Therefore it is only necessary to have a certain number of thoughts on a
given subject in order to bring about a complete change in your physical
organization.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System” Part XXVII:24

The Master Key Experience provides us with an array of tools and methods to do just that and here´s an idea on how and why it works.

Just imagine to be part of an environment where everyone works to adjust their though habits to better serve their purpose!

What´s in it for You???

In WHAT??? You might ask – well, life. Your Life!
What´s in it for You in Your life?

If You´re anything like me You´ve thought about this quite a few times during the years, just to be distracted by just that life itself. Yes?

I´m a yellow personality (according to the ColorCode) and as every other color it brings with it innate advantages and challenges, one of the latter being a condition we can call ADSOD (Attention Deficit Shiny Object Disorder) meaning I´m easily distracted by shiny objects, eg things in life that show up and seem fun 😉

Everyone knows that it takes focused attention to make anything happen and so this ADSOD has been (and still is to a lesser degree) one of my greatest challenges throughout life.

This has been the area where going through the Master Key Experience probably helped me the most, because many of the “shiny objects” that distract us don´t carry any benefits to us.
Rather they represent society´s agenda for us and by shifting our focus from what the world thinks is important to what WE think is important we can create an almost unimaginable amount of purpose and happiness in our lives.

Still I got of track and started drifting away from my new, good habits during our stay on Kauai, it was so easy to skip a read or two while catching up with people I met previous years or spending time with the people who were there from Sweden together with us. And I didn´t even think much of it until I mentioned it to Mark in a casual conversation and he pointed out to me how I had been choosing instant gratification over my dream once more.

And I learned two great things from this experience:

  1. How  good the habits developed during The Master Key Course have landed in my system – it was so incredibly easy to get back on track
  2. How meticulously I need to guard my thoughts not only from the shiny objects around me but in particular the ones I create in my mind

So, I hope to see You at the next Master Keys and until then please enjoy the video below and some ideas how to get what´s in it for You:

Week 16 – To Believe or not to Believe…

Kindness

This week we´re focusing on kindness in the Master Key Experience, kindness that we observe around us and also our own kindness to others.
The effects are remarkable, already after a few days I felt more harmonious, happy and content with my life!
Of course it seems obvious now that this resource for happiness was always there for the taking, I just did not consider it until suggested in the MK.
I hadn´t thought of it, it was not part of my beliefs which leads us to the main topic of this post….
I remember a question I read many years ago in a blog post by Randy Gage:

“Does this belief serve me?”

As my life at the time was far from where I wanted it to be, I know the answer was: NO!!!

Challenges:

  1. I didn´t know what belief didn´t serve me…belief3
  2. I didn´t know what belief would serve me…
  3. If I had I woulnd´t have known how to change it…

That´s kinda defines the term tough luck…

Years later I took the Go90Grow course and in the “Think & Grow Rich” part of it I learned how a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT

BLUEPRINT

So this brought up as many questions as there were given answers:

  1. What results do I strive for?
  2. What actions are necessary to perform to produce those results?
  3. What beliefs do I need to create that will trigger the necessary actions?
  4. What feelings need to charge my thoughts?
  5. What thoughts do I need to entertain?

And that helped a lot!

So where do I go with this?Always do_

Well, there is probably as many answers to that question as there are people reading this blog post. Everyone has, or at least should have, different answers to the questions above and that goes for the last one as well.

The reason for that is that we have to DECIDE!!!

Decide what we want! What we need to do to get it! What we have to give up! What we are willing to give up to reach our dream! Decide what feelings we want to feel, what emotions we want to experience!

Remember: DMP + PMA + WPOA + MMA

And then… Determine what is the  discrepancy between where we are and where we want to be!

“The difference between my current reality and my vision is defined by the gap between the person I am and the person I am becoming!”

And the gap can only be closed by thoughts, which means we are in total control of closing it!!!

“17. Therefore, to control thought is to control circumstances, conditions,
environment, and destiny.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

So lets go about that:

“18. How then are we to control thought; what is the process? To think is to create a
thought, but the result of the thought will depend upon its form, its quality and its
vitality.
19. The form will depend upon the mental images from which it emanates; this will
depend upon the depth of the impression, the predominance of the idea, the clarity
of the vision, the boldness of the image.
20. The quality depends upon its substance, and this depends upon the material of
which the mind is composed; if this material has been woven from thoughts of
vigor, strength, courage, determination, the thought will possess these qualities.
21. And finally, the vitality depends upon the feeling with which the thought is
impregnated. If the thought is constructive, it will possess vitality; it will have life,
it will grow, develop, expand, it will be creative; it will attract to itself everything
necessary for its complete development.”
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part 16

So let us connect back to “belief”:

What this tells us is that the word stems from the verb “leubh”: to care, desire, like, love(!)

So do You LOVE Your DMP???

Of course You do!!!

And that´s all it takes, remember:
a THOUGHT charged by FEELING create a BELIEF that causes an ACTION which produces a RESULT
