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 →
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 →
No need to get into lengthy explanations now. Keep it brief. Maybe some anecdotes. A few thoughts. The experience is everything. Talking about it, is not “It”.
I remember, years ago, in the winter of 2006-07. I was composing some music at the Leighton Artists Colony, at the Banff Centre For The Arts in the amazing Canadian Rockies. Something happened there. A good thing. I remember taking the shuttle from Calgary Airport to Banff National Park. A 2-hour trip. I was the only passenger. The driver lectured about the history of the area, the First Nations. He used to be a tour guide. Slowly, I saw the mountains growing bigger… and my heart melted. I wanted to cry. It felt like coming home. And I had been away too long.
Question. “How are fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness and hurt feelings great tools for expanding the comfort zone?”
Hm. This had me thinking all week… Just having to reflect on these words got me out of my comfort zone right there. The “Fear” of not getting it, not understanding the question, of not being smart enough, of not being able to make a thorough analysis, of saying the wrong thing in the end…
Hand me a saxophone and I’ll play you a few great lines. Comfort.
OK. How about, “Hurt Feelings” give me the perfect opportunity to practice forgiveness towards others ? And the emotion of “Guilt” provides me with yet another wonderful occasion to practice forgiveness towards myself… As our dear friend Og questions in his Scroll V, “… Can I relive the errors of yesterday and right them ? Can I call back yesterday’s wounds and make them whole ? Can I take back the evil that was spoken, the blows that were struck, the pain that was caused… ?”Continue reading →
It has been a challenging week. No need to make an inventory here. Of course it has been challenging ! How, otherwise, would we encounter the so much needed opportunities to advance, the stepping stones to move to higher spheres ?
I was doing good. Five months into the Master Key Experience. Going strong. Climbing that mental mountain at a steady pace. Feeling whole, loving, enthusiastic, focused… And then, all of a sudden, something happened. A moment of unawareness… I couldn’t get a good grip, and lost my balance.
And off I went, down that slippery cliff… waaay down… Spiralling down into the darkness of the night. It took me by surprise. I lost all control for a moment. And I was out for a while… 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 absolutely love the subject of Kindness… What a brilliant idea to take time this week (and forever if you ask me…!) to notice and observe kindness in our Outer and Inner Worlds… Tuning into the substance of Loving Kindness in the Outer World… Observing random acts of kindness as a reflection of our inner being…. The outer kindnesses playing the strings of our inner source, amplifying the outer world’s sweetness… With every turn of my head … more and more wonderful occurrences, at every moment of the day… 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 →
