WEEK 23 Master Key outstanding adventure

As always thanks for stopping by.

Money, these days what is it: an idea backed by confidence.

I could give you an essay on economics but let’s not go there; instead I will give a quote by Wallace Wattles:

“WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No man can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money; for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.”

I think that is a pretty good way to look at money, a means to give more and a tool to aid you in becoming the real you. Says it all for me how about you? I quote Wallace Wattles:

 “It is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich; if you are a normal man or woman you cannot help doing so. It is perfectly right that you should give your best attention to the Science of Getting Rich, for it is the noblest and most necessary of all studies. If you neglect this study, you are derelict in your duty to yourself, to God and humanity; for you can render to God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself.”

Now a word on Emerson’s “Self-Reliance.” It is time for me to step-up,to quote Emerson:

“And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers, and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort, and advancing on Chaos And the Dark.”

Bye for now, love you all!!

WEEK 22a Master Key outstanding adventure

As usual thanks for stopping by.

Emerson’s “Self- Reliance” OMG!!!!!

He nailed it. There is nothing more important than your integrity to yourself,for there is really only one source of any punishment, difficulty, illness or problem and that be you. When you do something you think you should not or do not do what you feel you should is where it all starts.

 Be true to thyself, worry not about the outside world, you are cause!

That’s all this time (been moving Ca to Az)

WEEK 22 Master Key outstanding adventure

WEEK 22 Master Key outstanding adventure

As usual thanks for stopping by.

 Mark J is always talking about being the observer.

Here is little story about me,myself and I being the observer.

My mother-in-law recently passed and my wife and I had to handle a lot of stuff related to her passing. I have always been a worrier (up to now) and under the added stress I was worrying away.

 I would say to myself if I can just get this one step done, it will all be fine. But when I got it done it was not enough and I worried even more about the next thing.

Well a funning thing happened, I saw myself doing this and how I and my body were addicted to the chemical released by worry. I could never get out of the vicious cycle. Enter MKMMA journey: I saw, I chose a different response, I substituted a different emotion and I broke the cycle. I was doing it but also watching me do it, It Was a Miracle!

Really swamped so that’s it for this week.

WEEK 21 Master Key outstanding adventure

As always thanks for stopping by.

I’ll start this week out with a quote from Albert Einstein:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a

miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Wow, what a life defining question!!

I choose to live my life from the point of view that everything is a miracle!

When you take an honest look around how could you come to any other conclusion. Just look at a plant growing from a seed, you would have to say that’s a miracle. And look at all of the complexities of the human body and how everything works together in harmony(unless you poison it, whoops slipped to the dark side there for a second, positivity-none of that negativity)

If you stop and think about it, even if they were not miracles (and everything is), would it not just be a whole lot more fun to look for the miracle in everything? I read an article once on happiness, I will paraphrase something from that article: The day when you stop creating your own environment when you stop building your own surroundings, you stop waving a magic wand and gracing everything around you with magic and beauty, that’s the day things cease to be magical, cease to be beautiful. You cease to see the miracles and be the miracle.

 So what are you going to choose? Miracles, beauty, magic?

Create the life you were meant to live. Not the one you were told to live!!!!

Bye for now.

WEEK 20 Master Key outstanding adventure

As always thanks for stopping by.

Once again I’ll start with a quote from my favorite dude Charles A Haanel author of The Master Key System:

“ We can live more abundantly every time we breathe, if we consciously breathe with that intention. The IF is a very important condition in this case, as the intention governs the attention, and without the attention you can secure only the results which every one else secures. That is, a supply equal to the demand”.

Wow! If with every breath we take, we have the intention that we are breathing in abundance across all facets and areas of our life, we consciously keep our attention on this intention, What a Life We Can Lead!!

I know I have been doing this several times a day and I feel fantastic!

If you also have the intention that with each breath you are making a connection with all life all intelligence and all substance, it gives a whole new meaning to  the expression “ become one with the universe”. Because you really are.

Here’s another quote from Charles:

“Every time you think you start a train of causation which will create a condition in strict accordance with the quality of the thought which originated it. Thought which is in harmony with the Universal Mind will result in corresponding conditions. Thought which is destructive or discordant will produce corresponding results. You may use thought constructively or destructively, but the immutable law will not allow you to plant a thought of one kind and reap the fruit of another. You are free to use this marvelous creative power as you will, but you must take the consequences.”

So after that last quote, I’ll leave you with this:

Have a great life, unless you’ve made other plans! ( You are free to use this marvelous creative power as you will, but you must take the consequences.)

WEEK 19 Master Key outstanding adventure

 

As always thanks for stopping by.

First let me start with a quote from Charles F HAANEL:

“ You may know that thought constantly, eternally is taking form, is forever seeking expression, or you may not, but the fact remains that if your thought is powerful, constructive, and positive, this will be plainly evident in the state of your health, your business and your environment; if your thought is weak, critical, destructive and negative generally, it will manifest in your body as fear, worry and nervousness, in your finance as lack and limitation, and in discordant conditions in your environment.”

That being said, we all had best knock off the negative, weak and destructive thoughts or at least not entertain them and switch to a positive thought immediately. I know I’ve mentioned this many times in my blog, but it’s the most important thing you can do to lead a better more productive life.

Haanel states that during our 15 minutes of concentration and I quote: “Let the thought rest on the fact that appearances are deceptive.” Most people think that the environment and/or their life situations determine their happiness and well-being. But this assumption is not correct for all of those things are affects and the cause is your thoughts, as was stated in the first quote above it’s what thoughts you’re entertaining that determine all of those. I hate to break it to you( and myself) but don’t be pointing the finger over there, go look in the mirror and you will see the one that has entertained  the thoughts that brought about the existing condition you are living in.

Well I will get off my soapbox now and end with: You are whole perfect strong powerful loving harmonious and happy!!!!!
