Week 4 – Small is Large

Welcome back…

I am still amazed at how the Master Key experience is showing me over and over there is more going on than meets the eye…

Here is what I found reading this week.

13. If you carry out this idea, beginning with small things which you know you can control and gradually increase the effort, but never under any circumstances allowing your “I” to be overruled, you will find that you can eventually control yourself, and many men and women have found to their sorrow that it is easier to control a kingdom than to control themselves.

14. But when you have learned to control yourself you will have found the “World Within” which controls the world without; you will have become irresistible; men and things will respond to your every wish without any apparent effort on your part.

“beginning with small things which you know you can control”

The value of just this small ten word part of this whole experience is one of my biggest finds…

Years ago I watched people do what they do and I always wondered how did they do it…

Viewing others change or do great things we just see the end results…

Now I have the secret….

Ha Ha not really.

It is no secret…

Just too small for most people to give it the value that it deserves…

So people will now want to know what is LARGE about small things.

I think what I love most about it is “those things that I can control”

When any of us is able to do those small things that we know that we can that’s the best and first thing to always do…

I will just do what I know I can control and not worry about all that stuff that is a mystery…

I’ll leave the rest up to those who want to control those things outside of their control…

Takes too much energy to try and control that which they have no control over…

Man, I spent years doing just that…

I am grateful to now know…

You can believe me or not…

I didn’t come up with this…

I took control of small things I knew I could control and…

I found it made a Large transformation in my life…

So take control of a small thing you know you have control over and see for yourself…

Its in your court…

Let me know how LARGE is small for you…

Week Three – Just Relax

Wow this week more new challenges…

Welcome back…

Thanks for following my journey…

I hope you are also on a journey of your own…

Because finding out what your own journey is worth taking…

One of the hardest things to do is learn something new…

Not just to learn something new but someone asking you to do that and just relax…

I love telling someone else to do that with something that I’ve already learned…

But now that shoe is on my foot…

Well the exercise I was given this week was to not only sit quiet without moving…

And no thinking… well let thoughts come and go without bringing new thoughts in…

Now add…

Relax.

Relaxing without thinking about what is not relaxed is well… stressful… for a moment..

Then it just happens…

I was sitting and wow unexpectedly… this feeling of being more relaxed than I have been for a long while…

The best thing about new challenge is when it is no longer is a challenge and has become an easy task…

I guess when told to something new take the time to get used to the new…

And in a short time enjoy new skill..

I hope your journey is as challenging yet as freeing as mine is…

Til next week…

Week 2: Time to Focus

Welcome back. This Week I learned sometimes life can seem like looking at the world from thousands of miles away.

Well that’s what I learned was wrong with my perspective about my life in many areas…

So what’s wrong with seeing my world from this perspective?

From what I learned this week from the Master Key chapter two. Seeing things from a distance does give an overall view… but it gives too much opportunity for for distraction. Its hard to zero in on specifics.

I realized that for too long I thought I could see who I was and what I really wanted in life…

I was exposed this week… I needed a much closer look at who I am and what I desire to do with who I am.

Knowing I am the one that wants to live the life I want. Means I have to know what that looks like…

Being kinda general about what I want really does not work…

Let me put it this way…

I love pizza… So lets say we are going out for pizza…

Can you see going to the pizza place?…

We walk in…

We get seated…

Our waitress comes over and asks us are you ready to order?

We say yes…

She then asks ” What would you like?”

We both say in unison,”Pizza, duh.”

Well we knew what we wanted in general what we wanted to eat..

Pizza.

We went to a Pizza place.

Yet that is just not enough…

What kind of crust…

What’s on it…

What size…

Well for my life just pizza doesn’t work any more. Well it didn’t work very well in my life to know I wanted to live a great life. I need specifics.. So do you.. start getting more clear about what you want in your life…

So its time to focus on being more specific.

What will it look like when you get to where your going in life? Who will be with you? What will it feel like? When will you do this? And Why will you be doing this?

“Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite purpose becomes power.”

So take time today to start seeing more clearly… Yes I’m asking you to focus…

Don’t worry I also was speaking to myself.

Enjoy the journey.

Week One – I’m a Slave?

Wow! Here I am again! Week one of the Master Keys.

I really am excited to get started again.

I started preparing for 26 weeks of self unfolding. Some would call it self discovery and they would also be correct.

I am crossing the same river… yet it isn’t the same river.. If you’ve ever crossed a river it is constantly changing. Even though it looks the same on the surface there is so much under the surface of the water that is different.

I am reading Chapter 8 of “Worlds Greatest Salesman” “Scroll 1” Which points out that pretty much any adult(ok all adults) is a slave to habit.

Now habits are not all bad. They clear up your brain to do other things. They work in the background…. automatically.

Which if I stop and think about it…. can be very scary.

What do you mean automatically?

Let’s put it this way.. Do you ever wonder why sometimes when you are watching tv and a commercial starts then they quickly switch to a different commercial. What just happened? Well could it be that the advertisers know that they have shown the full version of the commercial that just by putting that quick little clip out there you get the whole commercial….

Hmmm.

So many times I find myself doing something…. wait… why am I going this…. ugh…

I started doing something that my mind/body recognized as you do this when you see this or feel this…

But how can I change and do a new habit? Well…

Here is the good news and the bad news…

No matter what you do…

You and I are slaves to HABIT!

Come on this journey and you will find out how to begin and hold onto a habit that you/I choose to do and keep.

Let me know if your okay being a slave to habits. The first step to solving any challenge is to realize what habit you’d like to stop and which one you’d like to start.

Then let’s choose to take step to adopt a new habit. Stick with it. It will be worth the effort.

Come on along. Its your choice. Are you ready to start a new habit? I am.

Yes. I am a Slave. I am choosing a new master tho. Come along and find out who that is.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

See you soon.

Paul
