Week 21 – Clap Along….

This week has been amazing in the Master Keys; I know I mentioned that in previous blogs but Hanaal just keeps blowing me away every week and this week has been no different, additionally it’s beginning to start to come together everything that we have learned over these past 21 weeks.

I really had a tough time narrowing down the topic for this week blog until this morning when a follow MKMAAer (Rhonda Moss) tweeted  the following link this morning

Original Video

Movie Version with lyrics (Despicable Me 2)

I have heard this song previously on the radio and from the movie “Despicable Me 2” if you have kids.  This song & video by Pharrell Williams really lifted my spirits this morning after a long week. By the way what’s not to like about this song has a great beat, lyrics and it definitely lifts spirits. BTW, during the research for this blog, I found that Pharrell actually created a “24hour happiness” music video to this song, (I’ll attach the link below if you are interested in viewing it)

Over the past weeks we have talked about having a positive mental attitude and to positively charge your Dharma with feelings. Hanaal also mentions “mental attitude” again in this week’s readings

21 – 12. The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that “like attracts like”, consequently the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.

21 -13. This mental attitude is our personality and is composed of the thoughts which we have been creating in our own mind; therefore, if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life.

21- 14. It is, however, no easy matter to change the mental attitude, but by persistent effort it may be accomplished; the mental attitude is patterned after the mental pictures which have been photographed on the brain; if you do not like the pictures, destroy the negatives and create new pictures; this is the art of visualization.

The last 2 passages are particularly important; if you don’t like the picture in our head change it, wow what a great concept! So, “if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life.” WOW!!!

So what’s does your picture look like? What’s your mental attitude going to be?

To help you I’ll  leave you with the following lyrics from “Happy” by Pharrell Williams

“clap along … if you feel like happiness is the truth”

“clap along … if you what happiness means to you”

“clap along … if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”

Clap along….

Thanks Rhonda, for sharing this video and I have also add it to my DMP playlist as well.

So until next time, Peace be the Journey!!!

Week 17 – Repose and Focus

***Gratitude to all those who commented on my previous week(s) blog.

I apologize in advance, if this post is not as coherent as I have been battling the flu and have been bed ridden since Wednesday afternoon. Anyways, I have this window of opportunity where I feel somewhat better to complete this post, so here goes.

This week in the Master Keys talks about concentration, symbols and the law of cause and effect, as Hanaal writes,

The student who masters the contents of Part Seventeen will not mistake the symbols for the reality; he will be interested in causes, rather than effects. He will concentrate on the realities of life, and will then not be disappointed in the results.”

I would like to point out the following passages;

“17-6. Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character, becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.”

“17-11. 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.”

“17-15. All mental discovery and attainment are the result of desire plus concentration; desire is the strongest mode of action; the more persistent the desire, the more authoritative the revelation. Desire added to concentration will wrench any secret from nature.”

“17-17. The intensity of one moment’s earnest concentration and the intense longing to become and to attain may take you further than years of slow normal and forced effort; it will unfasten the prison bars of unbelief, weakness, impotence and self-belittlement, and you will come into a realization of the joy of overcoming.”

The above passages relates to our Definite Major Purpose (DMP) and burning desire attached to it, i.e. emotionally charged.

“17-20. All of us are dynamos, but the dynamo of itself is nothing; the mind must work the dynamo; then it is useful and its energy can be definitely concentrated. The mind is an engine whose power is undreamed; thought is an omni-working power. It is the ruler and creator of all form and all events occurring in form. Physical energy is nothing in comparison with the omnipotence of thought, because thought enables man to harness all other natural power.”

“17-21. Vibration is the action of thought; it is vibration which reaches out and attracts the material necessary to construct and build. There is nothing mysterious concerning the power of thought; concentration simply implies that consciousness can be focalized to the point where it becomes identified with the object of its attention. As food absorbed is the essence of the body, so the mind absorbs the object of its attention, gives it life and being.”

“17- 27. By keeping the thought in mind, it will gradually take tangible form. A definite purpose sets causes in motion which go out in the invisible world and find the material necessary to serve your purpose.”

The above passages talks about the law of attraction, the mysterious forces that come together to help manifest our DMP.

“17-28. You may be pursuing the symbols of power, instead of power itself. You may be pursuing fame instead of honor, riches instead of wealth, position instead of servitude; in either event you will find that they turn to ashes just as you overtake them.”

“17-29. Premature wealth or position cannot be retained because it has not been earned; we get only what we give, and those who try to get without giving always find that the law of compensation is relentlessly bringing about an exact equilibrium.”

“17-34. If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.”

“17-35. If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.”

“17-36. If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health”.

“17-37. Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest in form.”

The above passages focusing of the right targets and the law of compensation, passage 17-29 sums it up the best, “we get only what we give”.

As you probably have guessed, I have been focusing on health to the last couple of days, so until next week.

Peace be the journey! 

Week 2 – BLUE RECTANGLES

First and foremost, I am honored and humbled that you have come or returned to read my blog. I hope my posts will inspire you to achieve your own bliss and happiness.

I know what you thinking, Blue Rectangles really?  Blue Rectangle

As previously mentioned, I have begun a 26 week journey of self discovery using the Master Keys system. As human beings, we are creatures of habit,  we all have good and bad habits, and what I discovered over the past 11 days is that my habits created by me over the years have been affecting my life.

“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.” Og Mandino

This passage has really struck a chord within me as I have been reading the ‘Greatest Salesman in the World”  3 times daily.Blue Rectangle

So that brings us back to the Blue Rectangles, this week I had to create a 2 cards; a “chore card”  and DMP (Definite Major Purpose) card.  For the chore card, I have to pick a simple chore and have it completed on or before this October 13, as for the DMP card write down to verbally say “DO IT NOW!!” 25 times out load with enthusiasm after each item to draw a blue rectangle.

On each card on the other side,  to write our two personal pivotal needs (PPN), I chose LEGACY and AUTONOMY for mine.

Blue RectangleI  need to read these cards 3 times daily with enthusiasm and out loud, additionally observe and notice all the blue rectangles around me.  I have been reading them during my commute, although it may appear that I might be crazy talking to myself, it doesn’t bother me as I know this is a process to I need to conquer to achieve my DMP or dharma

I believe the purpose behind this is to foster a new habit and to recognize the success in completing them, albeit a small victory which I believe will lay the foundation to greater success in the future.

Blue rectangles…. I would love for you to complete my poll  and thanks for stopping by and I hope you return to follow my continuing journey.
