Week 17HJ – “Nah, I’m Good”

Being in Network Marketing, I’ve finally embraced the belief that when offering someone the “opportunity” I’m actually offering a way to something or somewhere better. Some call it hope. Whatever you call it, it is offering a way to journey from where the person is to their perception or idea of a better place. And more often than not, that person has no idea they are suffering in silence.

Knowing that there are extraordinary possibilities in everyone, and having a deep desire to help them recognize those possibilities, I say to them (disguised in network marketing gibberish), “Allow me to take you on a journey where you’ll discover your world within which will allow to to manifest all these great possibilities in your world without.” And the response so often without any hesitation is,

“Nah, I’m Good.”


I used to wonder what does that even mean. Now I know. What a shame.

Enough of the gibberish!



Week 17 – Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $200.

It’s the morning of Jan 22  about 10:15 am, and let’s just say that for the last week or two I have been losing it, spiraling out; not out of control – just everything I’ve worked for in this MKE course seemed to be unwinding. I was absolutely aware that I was choosing the second option, “Attach to feeling unstable and confused.” I knew that old blue print was wearing my ass out. I could actually see it at work. And I knew deep inside I didn’t want to lose that battle. I’d been working too hard I told myself. OR had I, I asked? Now here comes the doubt, followed by all those other little demons that were trying to snatch victory from my hands. Trying to convince me I can’t become who I want to. Trying to convince me that this past 3 1/2 months was nothing but a bunch of shit.


I sit down at my desk to start my workday. In front of me is the birthday card for my daughter that I needed to sign and send off to get to her in California on time. I was going to just sign “Love Dad”. That wasn’t enough for the wonderful woman, wife, and mother she is. So, I put all that other stuff out of my head and just started writing in an empty space. Without any thought I just started writing to her all the things about her that I was grateful for. I smiled, signed it, put it on the envelope, licked the glue, sealed it, and set it to the side. I then glanced to the side and saw my word for the week – Persistence. Without any oomph behind it, I grabbed Og and went to Scroll IV. (Side note, I add a little to the front of “I am nature’s…” I say, “Today is a really, really good day. I greet his day with love in my heart. I rejoice and am glad in it, for I am nature’s greatest miracle.” I say that each time.)  I started reading in spite of the way I was feeling. As I’m reading I thought to myself to put some enthusiasm behind the words. As I reading, I’m making a few notes on the side of the page. I’m feeling a bit motivated. I continue reading and I get to: “I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I no longer am fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I look beyond the cloth and I am not deceived.” I paused and flashing through my mind was what subconsciously, without effort, had just taken place. Here’s what happened subconsciously:

  1. Law of Relaxation – before writing in the birthday card to my daughter, I relaxed and put all that crap out of my mind.
  2. Law of Substitution – I thought about all the good things about her
  3. Gratefulness – I wrote all the things I was grateful for about her, and it caused
  4. Law of Smiles – if there isn’t one, there should be. I smiled and it made me feel good
  5. Persistence – even though I may not have felt like reading, I did it anyway
  6. Reading with Enthusiasm – added the divine inspiration I needed
  7. Observation & Insight – that divine inspiration “opened my eyes to see and my mind to think”. What I saw were my truths and opportunities being disguised, being hidend by an old blueprint that just doesn’t want to let go and yield to the greater self. Then, I thought to myself that I must always trust my Creator, the Source of All Things. Universal Mind orchestrated all these events to pull me back on course. This reminds me that once light enters darkness, it’s impossible to add anymore darkness that would extinguish the light. So, as long as I stayed aligned with Source, there’s always light.

Reader, all this went through my mind in about 5 seconds. Then, tissue box please, I lost it. All I had been reading, doing, and practicing had actually taken root, carved those neural pathways, and forming my new blueprint! All this stuff was actually working. My brain is being re-trained and I didn’t even realize it. My mind is beginning to operate on a different frequency. The Me I want to become is unfolding. No more doubt and indecision.

I am Whole & Perfect, Powerful & Strong, Loving & Harmonious. I Am Happy!

Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

Week 16 – Why Is The Why Left Out

“Wealth should never be desired as an end, but simply as a means of accomplishing an end. Success is contingent upon a higher ideal …., and he aspires to such success must formulate an ideal for which he is willing to strive.” This is #5 Part 16 of the Master Keys. In my notes I wrote “The Why” and circled it and next to it, “A Burning Desire”. When I read this over and over, I think of all the images that are fed to the masses about wealth. The mansions, luxury cars, etc., but hardly ever is there any revealing of the “Why” behind it all. I wonder why that is. The enlightened know. That’s why they are afraid of us.

Week 15 – The Pieces Don’t Fit!

I remember, like it was yesterday, as a teenager, this feeling came over me that I was meant to do great things in life. I don’t remember what was happening at that moment that might have ignited that feeling, but I can feel it as strongly now as I did 45 years ago. Great things – I had no idea then what that even meant back then. To be honest, I still don’t quite know what that means.

All through life, as we all do, we’re trying to figure out how the pieces of life fit together, so we can begin to get a glimpse of what that greatness looks like. Like a jigsaw puzzle, we can construct the outer frame of our greatness, because of the straight sides of the pieces that form the frame. So we get the frame put together, and then the trial and error of putting the pieces together begins.

My friends, there are so many lessons that could be learned from this metaphor, but there is one overwhelming one that comes to mind. When we come into existence, we come into it complete. Just like the jigsaw box that contains all the pieces. The outer frame is the first thing put together. All of the other pieces that form our greatness are there to be assembled. Here’s where derailment takes place. We allow, or are unaware, the pieces are being exchanged by others who want to form our greatness in their image. When that happens, we are pulled out of alignment with the Universal Mind that is expressing itself through our life, because the pieces don’t fit. We are trying to force pieces together and life becomes a m.e.s.s. (Misery & Evil Side by Side).

I found in Master Key Part 15, the guidance, if you will, to recognize the pieces that don’t fit, so I can reclaim the the pieces that do. My greatness is coming into view.


Week 14 – Two Steps Forward…

Persistently moving forward to a goal has built in pitfalls to be aware of.

  1. Complaining
  2. Growing Weary Just Shy of the Victory
  3. Thinking Little Attempts Don’t Amount to Much
  4. Negative Self Talk
  5. Forgetting That the Universe Is Routing For You
  6. Tomorrow’s Success Is Greatly Dependent On How You End Today
  7. Forgetting That Each Day Is A Really, Really Good Day. Greeting It With Love In Your Heart. Rejoicing & Being Glad In It!

Stay out of these pits of sinking sand. You can take two steps forward, and any one of these can set you one step, two steps, three steps back.

Week 13 – Persistence And Persistence

The persistence of a bull implies a hard charging, I’m going to run you over if you don’t get out of my way, kind of attitude.

The persistence of a slow dripping of water implies you will eventually get tired of the drip and move or you will crack under the pressure and move.

Either way, you will move!
