Helping People Help Themselves

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…?

Continuation

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

Week 22A – Shedding The Masks

High Up In The Bright Blue Skies

High Up In The Bright Blue Skies

It’s a process right ? The whole thing. Evolving. Improving. Experiencing that true nature. We don’t need to get stressed about it. It’s all there already. No need to go anywhere. It’s right here, in this very moment. It takes time to uncover those veils, to take out the trash, to clear up the mind, … and that’s okay. It’s about letting go and be. Simply be. And do what needs to be done. Do, for the good of all of us. Drop all that unnecessary baggage, hoarded over so many years. Let it go, and soar high up in the bright blue skies…

Find your own rhythm, your own tempo, your own melody, your own silence,… That’s what this journey is about. Continue reading

Week 14 – Four Tiny Habits That Change Your Life

rudy-1One 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

Week 12 – Giving The Best

I missed last week’s webinar. I was playing a concert with the Dutch jazz pianist and composer Jeroen Van Vliet who received the prestigious Boy Edgar Prize that night. The whole evening was a huge success. The Bimhuis, the well-know jazz venue in Amsterdam, was completely sold out. The audience was warm and enthusiastic. Radio and TV were recording the event, press all over the place. And yet something didn’t feel right. I didn’t feel right…

I haven’t been performing much since five or six years now. I’m actually hardly playing at all anymore these days. A conscious decision, wanting to live a more balanced, healthy and regular life. I just play a handful of concerts a year, mostly because I have a hard time saying no to my musician friends… Continue reading

Week 11 – I Think I’m Smiling More

Eleven. I feel I’m moving ahead. Slowly improving. Advancing steadily. Like one of these icebreaker ships. Unstoppable. I feel stronger, mentally. Physically also. More energy. I feel more awake. Walking in the streets, my steps are clearer, more decisive, more conscious. More focussed. More powerful. More loving, harmonious and happy ? I sure hope so. I think I’m smiling more.

Probably the greatest improvement that I’m experiencing since the beginning of this amazing MKMMA course is that I notice the old blueprint’s procrastination getting weaker, slowly Continue reading

Week 10 – I’m A Gentle Puma

“I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep”.

It’s tough. It’s hard. I’m struggling. Like many of us I imagine. The days are too short, too many things to do. Maybe it’s the winter arriving ? It’s pretty cold out there. And it’s dark so early, 4pm…

OK now, stop right there. Stop whining. That’s about as far as we’ll go into that alley. I am a lion. A mountain lion. I’m a warrior. I know it’s all in my mind. It’s all my own blurred perception. I want to sharpen my senses and see the Truth. My mind’s windshield gets dirty now and then, from daily travelling. Dusty bumpy roads. I need to wipe it clean, to see clearly again. Chanting “Om” helps. Stretching helps. And I’ve continued to use “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, Continue reading

Week 8 – Crawl. Walk. Run… Fly !

Come on, you can do it.

Yes, you.

I’ve always been amazed to see toddlers’ attempts to evolve from a crawling condition to walking and beyond. Sometimes I wonder if they even consider giving up at times ? I’m pretty sure they don’t. I don’t think it’s not even an option for them. Their brain is not even wired that way. I imagine they see others do it – effortlessly – so obviously they are convinced they can do it too. It makes total sense. And they keep trying, keep digging in, till the job is done. With lots of falling, many many times, hurting themselves, feeling the pain… Cry for a moment, get some encouragement (or not, it doesn’t really matter that much), and then try again – till the job is Continue reading

Week 5 – Observing Love

Procrastination

Right below the surface, wanting to fully emerge, I observe some degree of procrastination, tiredness, laziness… Enough already of all the thinking, trying to figure it out… What do I really want out of life ?

I feel like going to the movies… Or just sit in the sofa, that’s fine too. Space out, let the mind wander… Listen to the cars drive by… Go for a walk. Get some air. The Do-It-Nows will just have to wait a bit…

Haanel, Mandino, Emerson – premium wisdom resonating in my subconscious mind… like some Continue reading

Week 4 – Week Four ?

One hundred percent – 100%

Yes, Week 4. Time flies. Amazing Week 4. This week has been extra busy… Thank you very much. And many wonderful impressions and occurrences too.

Not sure where to start…

“100%” –  one hundred percent – that’s what I remember from last Sunday’s webcast. And somehow, my mind seems to have decided to create much more to do in the outer world, specially for this week, to celebrate Week Four. Or is this a test…? “100% you said ?”

Interesting enough though, I seem to have become more creative in finding time. Or better, in using all the time that’s available, Continue reading
