Helping people help themselves… That’s what Mark J and the Master Key Experience are all about. How about finding out what really makes YOU truly happy? And how you – with all your unique gifts and talents – can help others to find this out for themselves also ? What’s the value of being dependent for the rest of your life, on what other people think of you, what other people want you to be, what other people tell you to do…? Continue reading
Yes, it has been a while. I felt the need for silence, the need to move away from any outer influence… Echoes in my mind, other people’s opinions… Long walks in the woods nearby, to recharge, reconnect, and to review my definite major purpose, in my mind, or was it maybe in my heart ?
Visualising, feeling, sensing, listening again and again, closer and closer, deeper and deeper, tuning into the wavelength of Truth… At this stage in the continuation of the #masterkeyexperience, I’m picking up the pieces again, and in doing so, I’m finding my own rhythm, my own melody, my own harmony… Continue reading
Self-Reliance – reliance on one’s own powers and resources rather than those of others. “Self-Reliance” is also an essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson which starts with the phrase “ne the quaesiveris extra”, Latin for “do not seek for things outside yourself”.
The Master Key Master Mind Alliance course (MKMMA) is over. Done. Six months of intense study and observation, creating new good habits. Learning to do-it-now. To recognise beauty in the outer world, daily. To be still, and listen within. To clearly define what we want, or rather, what we need to do in this life, for the benefit of all. To visualise it, as if it already exists. To understand how the Universal Mind works, and to direct it to manifest our true dharma. To mastermind. Continue reading
Today was such an amazing day… So full of bright light and vibrant energy. In the midst of these hectic times, I notice myself relaxing. I am calmer. More grounded, more connected to the Universal Juice… I trust more. It’s all gonna be okay. If this is the last day of my life, why be fearful of what’s coming… There’s only this very moment to cherish. And it’s glowing with love…
I had a nice quiet early sit this morning. Then cooked up some fresh ginger tea, a strong brew with turmeric, coriander, fennel, cumin, and some mint leaves. Good habits… Woke up my son for school. Flashed through a stack of index cards. Continue reading
I’ve been following the compass much more than the clock these past few days… I liked it. Or was it procrastination ? I don’t think so. Procrastination feels different. It smells different. Weak. Uneasy. Fishy. This, on the contrary, felt exciting… Something was cooking , and I held back, waiting for the perfect moment to take it off the fire.
I’ve been struggling with my Definite Major Purpose for quite a while now, thinking it over many times, turning it upside down, looking at it from different angles. But I have not been able to put my finger on the soar spot… I’ve been wanting so much to get in touch with my deepest inner core. Wanting to get a clear picture of what I really need to do with my life. Not in a distant future, but right now, pronto, as soon as Continue reading
I’ve watched many movies in my life so far, and one thing is for sure, a Hero has courage… The courage to stand out, to stand up, or down if needed. The courage to follow her heart, vision, follow the call of her inner voice, beckoning to take the path less travelled… Surely a hero has also all of the other 12 virtues of Franklin’s Makeover…
We’re working on it.
This week I’ve been focussing on courage. I had the feeling that I couldn’t see much of it in my outer world – and we know what that means – but I guess looking for it has had it’s effect… At first I thought that most people were pretty Continue reading
I just read Shelby Nolan’s blog post for this week. I’m definitely been part of the drifting crowd for the past few days or so. Oh, come on, honestly, definitely more than a few days… You know, it’s like getting a pair of new shoes or something, and you’re all happy and excited, you cherish them, take care of them, buy the right polish, find a special spot for them … And then after a while they’re just another pair of shoes…
But no sir, this is not like a simple pair of shoes. This course, these daily rituals, this practice, is way more valuable… Yet, the shapes, the dream board, the written DMP, the many index cards, the recording, Mandino, Haanel, … are becoming all too familiar…
So how do we keep the magic going ? Continue reading
I marked down “Decisiveness” for this first week’s virtue of Benjamin Franklin’s 13 Week Makeover. I “decided” that this was the one quality that needed the most attention in my ever-changing mind…I would love to do things with trust and confidence, not thinking things over a million times before moving into action… To be connected at all times to that inner voice which “knows” The Truth. And to trust it, to act on it, without the slightest hint of hesitation. I’m remembering The Way Of The Samurai.
With firmness, determination… conclusiveness, purposefulness, will power,… those are some of the synonyms I found online. And some other words related to decisiveness are persistence, perseverance, aim, intention… Now, don’t these words sound very familiar after 15 weeks into Continue reading
One of this week’s assignments was to view one of the suggested movies, and recognise the four tiny habits that can change one’s life for the better – having a Definite Major Purpose (DMP), a Positive Mental Attitude (PMA), a Plan Of Action (POA), and a Master Mind Alliance (MMA). Combine these four, and you have a formula for success.
Whenever somebody invites me to watch a movie, I’m there ! I saw “October Sky”, “Cool Runnings”, and “Rudy”, twice…
Let’s focus on “Rudy” for the time being, which somehow most resonated with me. The whole story is truly highlighting everything we are learning during this amazing MKMMA Experience Course.
Everything around Rudy, his entire family environment, is trying to keep him from realising his childhood dream, playing for the Notre-Dame football team. He doesn’t care what others tell him, that he’s too short, too slow, not smart enough, that the whole idea is stupid and Continue reading
Hm… Seems I have nothing major to bring to the foreground this week… Probably that’s quite an achievement already. 🙂 No struggles to complain about, no inner turmoil, just simply enjoying getting settled into these daily master key and other rituals. Love how Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret summarises all that we’re doing. Love the jazz music on the recording. Makes everything even more cosy during these cold winter days …
I took a few days off from the outside world. Stayed at home, alone, working on bringing everything into harmony, especially myself. I admit, I was a bit behind with a few things. Tons of emails to answer, some index cards to make, a few video replays to watch… I decided to fast for three days. Been wanting to for a while. Been feeling the need to cleanse my body within, and bring my thoughts into sharper focus. It’s a wonderful experience to notice how the mind becomes clearer, once the body doesn’t have to process all this food. As if adding a luminous Continue reading
