There is tremendous pain and relief in knowing the choices I am making are predetermined, for real, by what we affectionately call ‘the blueprint.’
Coping with the idea that not only are all the choices I make made about 4-6 seconds before my conscious mind knows the decision is made is, well… bewildering.
No free will?
Is this good news or is it bad news?
I guess it depends on a few things…
Well, the list is endless, isn’t it?
The hard reality is that the stunning science behind the ‘blueprint’ idea is a thrill of a lifetime if I can lay my ego down and, here’s the biggie, comprehend, on some level, that my initial reaction is also, gulp, ‘predetermined’ – YIKES!
There is nothing in the Master Key Mastermind Alliance Experience that has been debated longer and debated with as much spirit…as to when to introduce this mindbending, liberating, terrifying and exhilarating information.
It was never a question of ‘if’ but always when.
Lesson 4 of the Master Key System is, in and of itself, so intense…that the debate was too much in this week vs. the conclusion that the creator is within…hmmmm
Will it blow people away?
Is that a good thing?
Is that a not good thing?
In a nutshell, our cells……are addicted…to peptides released in massive quantities when we have a feeling…any feeling …the peptides we produce are linked to directly to feelings….a specific peptide for each feeling….and since the cells are addicted, even behaviors we want to modify, and sometimes do modify for a few days really have no chance to stick if the behavoirs interrupt the addiction.
This is why resolutions never work…..sooner or later the cells demand, [think addicition], for a particular peptide sends stronger and stronger messages to the brain….and the subby, that mysterious source that never sleeps…has us unconsciously making decisions that will create scenarios…..that trigger actions…..that will make us act contrary to the behavior modification….and bang, they get their “fix.’
Those naughty little peptides…
Here’s the proof….
Change…..go for it ….
NAUGHTY OR LIBERATING?
That is the choice, isn’t it?
Master Key Lesson 4.5: The greatest and most marvelous power which this “I” has been given is the power to think, but few people know how to think constructively, or correctly, consequently they achieve only indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind. When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.
And there it is, for me…the liberty. The “I” can think.
For me it was understanding that I was just beginning to learn to think….and, if, with effort I could learn to think from the “I” it would be possible to create a new, clear reality ….the trick was ….how do I drive it into the subby?…..and create new peptides?….and get the cells addicted to peptides of my choice instead of defaulting to my addiction
If I wanted peptides for joy, liberty….harmony….peace of mind…..if I identified a vision that would trigger positive peptides and reinforced them, with triggers that keep them, on several levels within my consciousness, change would be not just possible, it would be a done deal.
But time….and the emotional and business and physical enrironments I live in made this a challenge…..wait, was that the old blueprint rationalizing……OK, now I can see how complicated this is……or is it?
Is that the old blueprint too?
BAM! Yes….I realized I was addicted to, among other things…using ‘time’ as an excuse to trigger feelings that would produce peptides. A NON-JUDGEMENTAL look at my ‘pattern’ would, if I was honest…and asked the 2 honest-with-me friends I had to verify and or expand on my findings.
Here was my pattern, one of many.
I would get a good idea…from someone, something I read….and use ‘time’ …not having the time to do it….to feel like a victim and that great phrase, which my friend verified…came rolling off my lips….
The phrase? “If only….’
If only I had the time….
If only I had the money
If only I had saved more money…
If only I had the discipline….
I wanted to use MY LIFE as an excuse for my life?
Those 2 friends laughed and said, “YES! You are constantly using the phrase ‘if only'”
THE SIT & THE WORK
And, oddly enough, I’m reading the solution every day…
It is in ‘the sit’
The ‘sit’ and quieting the mind, for me, was probably not going to be enough….whoops, old blueprint.
The trail of thought leads me to another truth about me… to me… not trying and doing because of the fear… “what if I do this and it doesn’t work for me?”
And Haanel shatters that notion…..”it requires work, hard mental labor that so many are unwilling to do.”
The sit, while in a sit one day…..reveals the solution. It is in the sit, not just sitting to sit, to “do the exercise” but to really concentrate…..and I really sucked at it.
Those naughty old-blueprint cell addicted peptides kept telling me it wouldn’t work for me….and I did not have the time…..
BAM! I read and begin affirming, I can be what I will to be.
Is it possible I am addicted to what Thoreau identified? “Most people live lives of quiet desperation”… am I addicted to the peptides from those feeling I have of desperation?
Then, out of the blue…..divine inspiration…..something fighting to make itself known in the subby…..prayer….luck…..who cares…..I surrender and remember something from my days in college, where I was an English major……..and, the subby never forgets…..funny how it happened.
I keep thinking….too hard….
Myths pop into my head…
“Clear the mechanism!” I demand of myself.
Voice says “Myths”
“Clear the mechanism!” I yell.
Quiet the mind…..like I had been practicing….
So I give up….listen to the voice and dig out some material I had on myths, what they really meant. Later, I discovered Campell…
All those years of pondering “most people live lives of quiet desperation” …it was me, not understanding I was not here to find meaning of life but to experience of being alive.
And the peptides were not ‘naughty’. Nope. I had created them.
And since I had created them, I could create new ones!
It only required 2 things because science had corroborated that Haanel was correct. If I did these 2 things, the methods, [which some of you now know; Index cards, Og, shapes] would appear.
The 2 things?
I had to do these 2 things or default to what I had.
I needed something stronger.
Are some peptides stronger?
My feeling needed to be stronger… deeper, intense…
The 2 things?
1. Decide what I want, not the person who had been conditioned but the “I”. What did my authentic self want?
2. The sit. I knew genius would reveal itself in the sit. Not me being the genius of course… but open up to and recognize the genius of ideas that would provide the methods and the pathway to bliss…
So, my fellow Heroes, who is your authentic self and what do you want?
Who knew that all those years I was telling my 3 English Setters to “sit” I was repeating, aloud, the one word I needed to hear. Go figure……
