Somehow talking about winners instantly makes our minds move to “winner and loser” mode. And there it is, that conditioning we all are trying to break away from.
As members and Guides alike hit week 15, everything changes. All the drills, all the hammering away to do the drills by the facilitators… and we do them… but… EXCITEMENT vanishes. The “aha” moments come, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly… but, they come. We “settle in” knowing we will finish what we started. It’s not enough.
The heartfelt emails begin showing up as they do after “NARC” week… more and more often. The staff is no longer seen as repetitive, long-winded and too detailed. The “applications” of the basics we drilled on for months start paying more and more dividends and the simple “tricks” – once the basics are mastered – members are no longer judging the pace, the number of tasks or receptions… in a nutshell, it’s now fun.
Members still with us have paid the price and are harvesting now
Weekly we build more and more practical applications of the basics… that conversion from deep thought to useful, easy applications of the knowledge and results from change begin pouring in as fast as a member wants them to.
The emails of gratitude are great and we take the time to remind those who express thanks or wonder or bliss that we did nothing, you did the work, you’ve earned this. With the comfort of routine and quiet confidence that you can handle what we dish out can come a slight waning of enthusiasm… Ut-Oh?
Naw, don’t fret. We KNOW we need feeling to charge thoughts so they become beliefs. While we worked hard to push, pull, tug, encourage and drag [whatever it took] you into “charging” what you do with feelings, something wonderful happens about this time. That encouragement begins to swell up from a different source.
More. Infinitely more.
Always the case, there is even more…as we all begin to feel the release from the bondage of our “conditioned self” and begin to think for ourselves, find our authentic self and experience freedom… the idea of service gets louder.
Once we touch this magnificent spot, thinking for ourselves and feel the joy that comes with that freedom, we want others to find this bliss… the ability to make a change… the honor of keeping promises.
SERVICE SUPPLIES DEEPER FEELING
Success is service. Those who “get it”… get the Master Key… know that the only way to keep it is to keep giving it away. All of a sudden getting this into 3000 people’s hands and minds seem like too small a number… even the 2019 goal of 30,000 doesn’t seem big enough.
They are no longer “words” on a “statement of cause”… after all, finding ourselves is the greatest adventure on the planet and giving to those we love, know and care about… suddenly… when members understand, through hard work… this is a movement that can make a difference because it’s making a difference in them… we want everyone to have this “experience”.
Once we hit this spot, within, our feelings, the wonder around us, the color of the grass… EVERYTHING… explodes. We’ve tapped the truth of being and the endless reservoir of deeply textured feelings, excitement and energy gush out from within… it’s almost overwhelming. Go to it… and bewildering as it is, GO TO IT.
The “source” is gushing forth through you as soon we let it, as soon as we fully comprehend that “success is service.”
See, the sessions did not get any easier… nor the material… what happens is that the winners, the folks like you who simply did the work, well, got better. It was dedication and no one loses here… yes, 300+ are gone but they are all invited back, simply not ready to absorb the truth and responsibility the Law of Growth carries….well, that’s not really true.
The ones who lose are the ones we do not find… the wonderful, kindred spirits mired in lives of quiet desperation… looking for hope. And this is my pain…I know what this has done for us and 1000s of others… so how do we find them? How do we help 30,000 and more rescue their dazzling spirit? Break through the cement? How do we lead others to their own rich experience, to the great adventure?
Welcome to my world, welcome to the movement. Simply by being you and leveraging the resources. Be you, just be you. We’ve always believed this should be an experience of attraction, not promotion.
… oh, yeah, there is a 2 part plan.
- Dig deeper and get all you can out of your unlimited potential
- Embrace the movement
Let your light shine and live your truth with gusto.
keep giving to keep growing
Mahalo for checking out the Master Key Experience
Wow! Thank you Lana.
Excellent Mark. I enjoyed this read!
Seriously Steve, you need to become a writer, that was superb !!
We have to be reminded over and over again about the power and impact of mastermind, prayer, or whatever form of harmonious thought. I could kick myself for having to relearn these fundamental truths so many times. Especially with my experience and years on the planet. I have experienced the results of practicing kindness, I know that focusing positive is the only way to live, that treating others well, operating with right motivations, going for wealth v riches, serving v position, power v symbols, is where the true joy in life reside.
Embracing the process and lessons in the MKE has led me to vistas and insights that I would have achieved no other way. I am grateful.
I’ve discovered deep truths and principles from scriptural teachings that I never before realized. For example, how the protection and feeding of widows orphans, immigrants, and vulnerable are woven into Old Testament laws, that tithing and giving was deeply, culturally ingrained in the society. Then, with Jesus’ arrival, tithing was abandoned in favor of radical generosity! Not a legally mandated tenth! Caring for the vulnerable of our fellow humans is our highest obligation.
MKE has shined a light on the idea that giving generously, pursuing honor and harmony and true character is our ultimate purpose. Being generous, with the ulterior motive that I will be enriched or materially rewarded because of generosity, is folly. That joy and reward is in simply BEING a kind, caring, generous, abundant, loving human being. I am LOVING doing kindness and generosity and promoting it at every turn. I feel a fresh wind of life and spirit blowing through my space.
I’ve learned that my beliefs can and should be challenged, that if they are built on truth and fact they will stand. If not they SHOULD be dismantled. If I’m afraid to look at my beliefs and why I hold them, there’s a something amiss. If beliefs are built on bedrock they will withstand any challenge, they will be supported by conviction, and followed by faith and action. There is nothing to fear.
Yes, I have learned these things before and again and once more. I am committed to remaining focused, to keep fueling the burning desire, to keep experiencing the rewards that continue coming from week after week of practicing and building MKE principles.
Thank you for all you’re doing to bring these ideas to life and for challenging me out of my reverie! Thank you, thank you.
Awsome ted talk!!
I have experienced growth in many areas of my life over the last 16 weeks and I am so grateful. Something happened this week to a thought process changing from no, not me to seeing myself as someone that has mastered the ability to build a list…inviting others on this journey. The first mention of this ability to join the movement of spreading the word did not register because I didn’t feel I had the skill, leaving the task to better-equipped individuals. Sometimes it takes me a little longer to grasp the skills, but once I got it, I am unstoppable. Here’s to the future highly skilled me who is sharing this movement and helping others along the way.
Great Post. I liked the Tribes video.
