MKMMA Week 2 – Words…

shorelineWhat do you think of when you see a great piece of artwork? Such art work as paints, sculptures, architecture, literature and books etc.


How many people have a seen a great painting in a museum? Who is this creative artist? How did this painting come about, well it starts with the artist having an inspiration or an artmonaidea. Then he/she takes that idea/ inspiration and begins to transition it to the canvas. This process can take days, month or years depending on the scope of the project to complete their artwork. What is the result? A stunning painting, sculptures, etc that people marvel at and wonder how it came into being.


How many people have a seen a great piece of architecture? Who is Statue of Liberty_flickr_216759898_429003983c_zthis creative artist? How did this structure come about, again it starts with the artist having an inspiration or an idea. Then he/she takes that idea/ inspiration and begins to transition it to the drawings . This process can take days, month or years depending on the scope of the project to complete their eiffel-towerstructure. What is the result? A stunning a building that people marvel at and wonder how it came into being.


However, I believe that words are the greatest forms of art. I know what you thinking what are you talking about? Just hear me out, words put together make sentences, sentences make paragraphs and so on. We can use words to create whatever our heart desires. Over the past two weeks, I have been honored and privileged to have read Definite Major Purpose (DMP’s) from the 20+ members of the 2014/2015 Masterkey class . These members “artists” are creating their masterpiece one word at a time. The result an amazing and exciting picture of their dharma/ bliss, that people marvel at and wonder how it came into being.


The greatest masterpiece is the one we create with words…

MKMMA Week 1: New Beginnings!!!

New Beginnings




As the 2015 MKMMA classes have just begun, I can recall the emotions and feelings that I had during my first week. I was excited, nervous yet committed to discovering my inner dharma, I’m sure most people from the 2015 class feel the same way right now.  By the way, I had never written a definite Major Purpose (DMP) or even a blogged before but rest assured this is perfectly normal, these next 26 weeks is process of discovery which is unique to each individual, so enjoy the process.


Looking forward to seeing you all chip away at your cement Buddha and find your true hearts bliss!!

MKMMA Week 24 – “Unplugged”

This is the final week of the MKMMA live webcasts & training, it’s been a magnificent & fantastic ride over the past 26 weeks. The things I have learned from this course have been life changing and are opening up opportunities that I would not have concerned in the past.

If you are familiar with the movie the “Matrix”, there is a scene where “Neo” (Keanu Reeves) is “unplugged” from the matrix (programmed world) into the “real” world. This scene captures the essence of the Master Keys for me and I’m sure my MKMMA classmates would agree too.  We have been living regular lives directed the “society” but over the past 26 weeks we have learned ways to filter out all the noise around us and to start  listening to our inner voice to achieve our dharma.

26 weeks ago, I started to this journey of self-discovery, previously searching for answers outside when in reality I just needed to search within myself. These answers has always been there all the time, I just didn’t know how to get access them but I know now which is so powerful that I can call on it anytime I need. The mind is the most amazing gift we have been given but most people are not using it to its fullest potential. The master key has taught me that the “Mind” is the getaway to our dharma & bliss.



Although the formal part of the Master Keys course is ending, I consider this to be only the beginning of my journey toward my dharma and I’m excited of what lies ahead.

I want to thank Mark, Davene, Trish, Heather and the countless others for putting this course together and for mentoring us along through this amazing journey, Mahalo. To my fellow MKMMA classmates thanks for “finishing strong”,  your friendship and a lifetime bond that spans the globe, I can feel our presence (vibration) around me and I know I can call on it anytime, Thank You!!!.

Additionally, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to all that have followed, read & commented on my blog over the past 6 months, Thank you!!!

BTW I do plan on continue with my blogging.

Peace be the journey…


Week 14 – Pathway to Success? Let a Plane, Monster & Bobsled show you how..

This week in the Master Keys; Hanaal talks about harmony, we transitioned into to Scroll 4 in the Great’s Salesman by Og Mandino and we got to watch one of four of the following movies.

  • Cool Runnings
  • Door to Door
  • October Sky
  • Rudy 

It was a nice change to an adult movie, we usually end up watching movies the kids want to watch. By the way, each of my 3 children received movies for Christmas, I have ending up watching each of Despicable Me 2, Planes and Monster’s University at least 3 times in a little over a week.

I apologize for getting side tracked; but I was able to convince them to watch “Cool Runnings” for one night at least. Anyways, for our assignment this week, we had to watch one of these movies and identify the 4 steps that we have been learning to achieve our bliss which are;


Definite Major Purpose (DMP) back by a burning desire.

Positive Mental Attitude (PMA)

Plan of Action (POA)

Master Mind Alliance (MMA)

I have never watched a movie from this advantage point before which was very cool by the way. Without going into detail about the movie, it’s about a 4 Jamaican who wanted to be Olympians and a coach who was seeking redemption.


It was a great way to show my children to pursue their dreams and to never give up. Where one door may close another opens, as the movie shows 4 Jamaican Olympic hopefuls, trying to make the Summer Olympics. But ended up in the Winter Olympics, with a plan of action and mastermind alliance of those 5 people, they were able to make history to be the first to represent their country in the Winter Olympics and almost shocked the world with their performance!


It’s funny, even with my children’s movies I can see these traits as well. For example in Planes, Dusty (a crop duster) has a dream to see and race around the world; he masterminds with others and develops a plan of action while maintaining the positive mental attitude and becomes a champion. The same goes for Monster’s University, from childhood “Mike” dreams of working on the scare floor at Monsters Inc. He has a burning desire and plan of action (attend university) and Master Mind Alliance with Sully eventually. He was able to achieve his dream, maybe not how he originally intending but he got there never the less.


So ask yourself if a fictional plane, monster and the true story of 4 Jamaicans who achieved their dreams, what’s stopping you from achieving your dreams?

Absolutely nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams/ bliss, if you have these four things;


So, where will your dreams/bliss take you?

Week 8 – Move over, I’ll take it from here!!

** Gratitude to everyone for your comments for my previous week(s) blog post(s).**

Wow, what week of the MKMMA!! It was revealed to us, what we have been doing and how it is all connected, from the daily exercises to colors, shapes and the mental diet its all starting to make sense now and we are on the pathway to our golden Buddha.


I have never been a person who wears his emotions on his sleeves; I have always internalized it and never have shown it openly as a guy I believe it made you weaker (old blueprint) but during last weeks webinar Kathy Z (Coach) talk about letting go and to give into these exercise with FULL FAITH. Ever since hearing that, I been full tilt into the exercises and emotions are flowing through me, I’ve lost count how many times I had tears run down my face when I read/listen to my DMP and even during my daily sits.

Big HeartAs we near the Christmas season, one my favorite movies is the Grinch and my favorite scene is the moment the Grinch realizes “love” and his heart grows 2 or 3 times bigger. This is how I feel now, I openly let those emotions (positive) in and more importantly I openly give away love to everyone and everything!!

WOW, what an amazing feeling it is now! As OG Mandino states,

“In silence and to myself I address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence these words shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips and echo in my voice; and his heart be opened. And who is there who say nay to my goods when his heart feels my love?”

“I greet this day with love in my heart.”

“… Most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul and my heart.”

Hanaal explains further.

8 – 12 “A builder cannot build a structure of any kind until he has first received the plans from the architect, and the architect must get them from his imagination.”

8 – 20 “Real power comes from within. All power that anybody can possibly use is within man, only waiting to be brought into visibility by his first recognizing it, and then affirming it as his, working it into his consciousness until he becomes one with it.”

8- 22 “….this power is spiritual power, and this spiritual power is the power which lies at the heart of all things; it is the soul of the universe.”

8 – 25 “If you have been faithful to your ideal, you will hear the call when circumstances are ready to materialize your plans and results will correspond in the exact ratio of your fidelity to your ideal. The ideal steadily held is what pre-determines and attracts the necessary conditions for its fulfillment.”

As I’m beginning to see the cracks in the cement Buddha and I see the glorious golden color shining through and he looks simply amazing! I proudly wear my compass everyday and it touches my heart. I now follow my heart, I’ll go where ever it takes me, as my mind manifests it for me with these daily exercises.
