Week 2- A New Beginning

This second week into this years new “Master Key Experience” adventure has brought many new and exciting discoveries for both myself and many of our new members.

This year Dana and I are honored to be guides and are grateful to be able to witness the transformation of many new members who have embarked on their own journey. They will also find the most incredible place of discovery for  themselves, the world within.

This week, I would like to share one particular beginning.  Carl Hime has had a dream for many years. This week he is starting to feel the connection to the Universe. Some times something as simple as an email is all it takes. Take a few moments to celebrate his connection. Check it out here!

 

 

Week 1- Septembers End is just the beginning

 

What a beautiful time of year this is. The morning air is crisp and fresh while the afternoon sun continues to warm the earth and all it embraces. The trees have begun to change into their bright and colorful clothing of the Fall colors. The Fall harvest is all around us and the menu in our home starts to change as well, from those bold zesty flavors of a long hot summer into the warm and inviting comfort meals we always embrace this time of year.

This week as I reflect back on the happenings over the past year, I am peaceful and grateful for all of the changes in my life over this time. I have met some amazing people through the Master Key journey and have developed what I hope are long and lasting friendships with many.  My focus and openness to learn new things has exploded in me over this last year.

There are several new business opportunities as well as re-igniting old ones I have enjoyed for many years. Family ties and Friendships have become stronger and more valued by all. My beautiful wife Dana has discovered for the first time in her life that she has value beyond any measure she might have considered in years past. She has learned to live by her compass, not the clock and to throw caution and trepidation to the four winds and is following her Bliss.

Yes I am very grateful for finding the Master Key Experience, it has truly changed my life for the better. As I begin this years session as a guide in this amazing program, I am in awe of all of the beautiful people and their stories as they begin to unfold through the Keys. I feel blessed to be a part of their journey and I am further inspired to see what’s around the bend for all of us.

I am truly excited in knowing that it is only the beginning!

Peace Mac

 

8-21-15 Looking Back On My Master Key Experience

 

Are You ReadySome Kinda Sick Twisted Mind Game Or What?

“That’s when it hit me, Davene and crew must be using some sort of subliminal mind melding tactics that will cause you to get you off your butt and take action without you even realizing what is happening to you. This sort of thing if left unchecked could lead to a worldwide intolerance of procrastination, watch out you  might be next”.

Above is an excerpt from one of my earlier blogs after starting my journey through the Master Key Experience almost a year ago now. Yes I was having a little bit of fun when I wrote that post at the time.

Looking back now, I had no idea what an incredible impact the Master Key Experience and this new found understanding would have on my life. Through this course I have come to understand my connection to Universe and how to access the limitless flowing source of all that exists. Once I understood and accepted that, we are all “Natures Greatest Miracle” every door has opened and every barrier that ever stood before me is gone.

What this course is not!

If you are considering an application to qualify for a $ 1.00 Scholarship or simply looking into the Master Key Experience for the first time. I want you to know a few things about it. I want you to know what it is not.

  • This course is not another self help diatribe about how your life sucks and you need to buy our book or DVD in order to do something about your life program!

There is nothing for sale here!

  • This course is not another self help session put on by some self righteous Guru who has not done a damn thing in his or her life except become really good at self promotion and preying on individuals who are looking for some help or answers in their lives.
  • This course is not a religious based training. It neither accepts nor rejects anyone’s religious or personal beliefs, this is about your journey and all are welcome.
  • This course is not about filling you with a bunch of bullshit to make you feel better about yourself temporarily.
  • And Finally, this course is not easy, but I promise you it is absolutely worth every ounce of energy and every minute of time that you put into it.

What this course is and what it has meant to me over the last year.

  • It is about self discovery and hands on support to guide, not direct you on your journey. It will challenge and change everyone who accepts a scholarship. It is based on humankind’s understanding of our connection to universal power as well as empirical science that simply cannot be refuted.
  • Most of this information has never been taught in a self directed manner. However this course will lay out the entire foundation for you.
  • This course has taught me that even after 59 years of living and stacking up some accomplishments in my life, in business, marriage, family, friends, and community that, I have so much more to experience and give than I ever thought possible.
  • This course has taught me how to harness the gift of power within that we were all born with at the Miracle of our birth, but that power has been buried by the constant barrage of humanities idea of what our lives should be and look like from the first breath we take.
  • For most of us it has been buried deep in our core for so many years now, that not only do we not recognize it, we do not know how to begin to tap into it. This course will show you exactly how to do that.
  • Through this course I have learned how to unlock the Universal Vault and access the ever flowing stream of energy that is “all” and in everything. I have been given the tools necessary to begin to be able to chip off and break away from all of that old cement that has been suffocating me years.
  • This course will teach you, guide you and give you the tools to become a truly self directed thinker and thought leader. When you accept and understand that you are Natures Greatest Miracle, the power of the Universe is yours and you will have the knowledge to change anything and everything around you in your life. By unlocking the power of your subconscious mind you will create a connection to the life source of everything in the Universe.

My wish for you is that you find the courage to take the next step and spend some time with the information on this site, then sign up to get on the Scholarship list. My hope for you is that you take this Hero’s Journey for yourself.

I promise you, your life will never be the same!

Peace, Mac

 

Week 20- The Past Is A Blast!

How are fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness and hurt feelings great tools for expanding the comfort zone?

Fear, Guilt, Anger, Unworthiness and Hurt Feelings; The simple act of contemplating these emotions and how they have affected, directed and impacted so many events in my life seems to bring up a million questions for me. As I sit quietly and study them individually I recall certain moments where each of them has had a major influence in my life. I find it freeing to be able to look back and analyze or Focus on how it truly made me feel at the time, I realize today because of the MKMMA I could attach any other thought, feeling or emotion and maybe feel a little better about those past moments in time but I would rather recall how I actually felt at the time and how those feelings were responsible for charting some of the course direction in my life, some good some not so good, either way I have the opportunity to look back, adjust and determine for myself how I can use that feeling and that moment as a positive for my future self, I am the master of my emotions and I decide.

Don’t Leave The Past Behind, Don’t live in it, Learn from it!

nothing goes away
yesterdays junk

Week-19 The Power of Fear

Until about 6 months ago I thought I understood what it meant to be an “Observer”my how things can change. I know that we are all surrounded by or exposed to more negativity than probably any other time in history due to all of the available outlets that pelt us daily. In a recent conversation with my son who is also working on his future self, we talked for some time on just how deeply imbedded the old blueprint truly can be. Both of us have experienced several inexplicable events since starting our journeys and we know that they are the direct result of the power within.

As we talked and continued to reflect on those events and the changes we were both feeling we asked each other simultaneously the same question, if we know that the power is within and we can increase our power of understanding and improve ourselves through consistent focused thought! why in the hell is it so difficult to break the cycle of on again off again in the process of these exercises? I don’t think either one of us came up with an answer we could appreciate or take to task, but we both knew that it was a victory just in asking the question of ourselves, it truly was a breakthrough. The take away for both of us is that we have experienced wonderful events and have seen tremendous changes in ourselves and many around us, I think for the two of us that is enough for right now to stay committed and stay the course.

I believe we both decided that the benefits we have seen far out way the the actions of the past and for that I am grateful. Peace, Mac

Week-18 “Everybody wants to go to Heaven”

Humanity is life and as such prone to death, both of which are uncertain in the details, but for certain, you cannot have one without the other, that is the simple truth. Some of us live like there will be no tomorrow running at wide open throttle and some of us are afraid to truly feel alive, afraid of our own shadow and can’t seem to get out of our own way.

One thing for sure is most of us forget or maybe we are unable to realize at all, that quite literally all any of us have is now, right now! that one moment in which we are currently existing. None of us knows for sure, when that last day, the exact hour or minute that death will come for us and for me at least I am just fine with the not knowing.

My Granddaddy; Marshall (Mac) Eugene McCauley was full of what we in the family referred to as Mac’isms and other Great Truths of Life. I remember very well being witness to many of his truths as a young man, but one in particular which is fitting for this week happened while having breakfast with him and my Father in a dumpy little restaurant outside of Lafayette Louisiana, the two of them were on a last run road trip zigzagging across the country and traveling together, Mac was 91 years old at the time and on his last big adventure with my dad, hell it was the last big adventure for both of them even if they did not realize at the time, I had been in New Orleans on business, and so I caught up with the two of them during our travels.

While we sat enjoying our breakfast and some conversation together, my father remarked to my grandfather saying “Dad! that’s a lot of jelly you are putting on your toast”, (everyone who knew Mac knew he loved his jelly) Mac replied “ya it’s probably going to kill me some day I just hope it’s not today”, you know! he said “Everybody Wants to Go To Heaven But Nobody Wants To Go Right Now”. I have appreciated the exercises for the last couple of weeks and have spent a little time reflecting the here and now and have found great peace in the process. I leave you today with some fun and other quotable quotes by some of the other Great Mac’s through the ages for your amusement, enjoyment or simple reflection. Peace, Mac

Week -17 Coming Home

I am back, I was a away for a short time going through some much needed mental and physical repairs, the most serious of these malady’s was a Headectomy, this is a Greek term and is used when someone appears to have their head up their ass by virtue of their actions or inaction’s whichever the case may be and in my case it was a little of both.

It seems that I have been so caught up in the fervor of creating a new reality for myself that I was not being mindful or faithful to the Gatekeeper. My focus had been so far off the track for the last few weeks I am not even sure how the train kept rolling.

This was not my first time straying course but what is now painfully clear is that I consumed a vast amount of energy once again trying to control the world without, looking for my answers where I know they cannot be found. The one true gift I get to take away from this distraction is that, it is painfully and positively evident to me that I now know the difference between being on or off track, it wasn’t that long ago that I would have struggled with that distinction. In keeping with the theme of my last few posts, I would like to share some of my favorite passages from the Master Key System, especially with those who are not part of this terrific MKMMA program.

Excerpts from Part Seventeen:

We are told that Man has “dominion over all things”; this dominion is established
through Mind. Thought is the activity which controls every principle beneath it. The
highest principle by reason of its superior essence and qualities necessarily
determines the circumstances, aspects and relation of everything with which it
comes in contact.

The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most
powerful in existence. To those who perceive the nature and transcend-ency of
mental force, all physical power sinks into insignificance.

We are accustomed to look upon the Universe with a lens of five senses, and
from these experiences our anthropomorphic conceptions originate, but true
conceptions are only secured by spiritual insight. This insight requires a quickening
of the vibrations of the Mind, and is only secured when the mind is
continuously concentrated in a given direction.

Continuous concentration means an even, unbroken flow of thought and is the
result of patient, persistent, persevering and well-regulated system.

Great discoveries are the result of long continued investigation.
The science of mathematics requires years of concentrated effort to master it,
and the greatest science that of the Mind is revealed only through concentrated effort.

Concentration is much misunderstood; there seems to be an idea of effort or
activity associated with it, when just the contrary is necessary. The greatness of an
actor lies in the fact that he forgets himself in the portrayal of his character,
becoming so identified with it, that the audience is swayed by the realism of the
performance. This will give you a good idea of true concentration; you should be so
interested in your thought, so engrossed in your subject, as to be conscious of
nothing else. Such concentration leads to intuitive perception and immediate insight
into the nature of the object concentrated upon.

All knowledge is the result of concentration of this kind; it is thus that the secrets
of Heaven and Earth have been wrested; it is thus that the mind becomes a magnet
and the desire to know draws the knowledge, irresistibly attracts it, makes it your
own.

Peace, Mac

Week 16 The Cycle Of Life

I find it fascinating that I have lived for 58 years and in that time I have not been introduced to nor did I really understood this amazing Universal balance between, The Law of Sevens and how it applies to the Law of Growth. Having lived through the first 8 cycles of 7 so far and headed well into my ninth. I seem to have more questions today than answers.

Part of that is because I believe I am just now learning which questions to ask, these questions I contemplate might well be the first questions I have ever asked myself of any real importance. I am also finding the doors for opportunity, learning, giving and growing are opening in front of me on a regular basis and I feel a sense of excitement as I anticipate whats around the bend and the next opportunity to reveal itself.

I started this journey, my hero’s journey into the Master Keys 4 months ago feeling as if I might have waited to long to get started, but today I know for sure it is my time and my time has come.

The following is an excerpt from the Master Key System; Chapter 16

Life is growth, and growth is change, each seven years period takes us into a new
cycle. The first seven years is the period of infancy.

The next seven the period of childhood, representing the beginning of individual
responsibility. The next seven represents the period of adolescence.

The fourth period marks the attainment of full growth.The fifth period is the
constructive period, when men begin to acquire property, possessions, a home and family.

The next from 35 to 42, is a period of reactions and changes, and this in turn is
followed by a period of reconstruction, adjustment and recuperation, so as to be
ready for a new cycle of sevens, beginning with the fiftieth year.

Week 15- We Reap What We Sow

The following are excerpts from week 15 of the Master Key System written by Charles Haanel in 1912. This week in my blog I am simply sharing some of these teachings for those who may not have had an opportunity to read this material for themselves. It is not in it’s entirety but more over some of my favorite paragraphs from this weeks work book.

1. The laws under which we live are designed solely for our advantage. These laws
are immutable and we cannot escape from their operation.

2. All the great eternal forces act in solemn silence, but it is in our power to place
ourselves in harmony with them and thus express a life of comparative peace and
happiness.

3. Difficulties, inharmonies, and obstacles, indicate that we are either refusing to
give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.

4. Growth is attained through an exchange of the old for the new, of the good for
the better; it is a conditional or reciprocal action, for each of us is a complete
thought entity and this completeness makes it possible for us to receive only as we
give.
5. We cannot obtain what we lack if we tenaciously cling to what we have. We are
able to consciously control our conditions as we come to sense the purpose of what
we attract, and are able to extract from each experience only what we require for
our further growth. Our ability to do this determines the degree of harmony or
happiness we attain.

6. The ability to appropriate what we require for our growth, continually increases
as we reach higher planes and broader visions, and the greater our abilities to know
what we require, the more certain we shall be to discern its presence, to attract it
and to absorb it. Nothing may reach us except what is necessary for our growth.

7. All conditions and experiences that come to us do so for our benefit. Difficulties
and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from
them the essentials of further growth.

8. That we reap what we sow is mathematically exact. We gain permanent strength
exactly to the extent of the effort required to overcome difficulties.

9. The inexorable requirements of growth demand that we exert the greatest
degree of attraction for what is perfectly in accord with us. Our highest happiness
will be best attained through our understanding of, and conscious cooperation with
natural laws.

10. In order to possess vitality thought must be impregnated with love. Love is a
product of the emotions. It is therefore essential that the emotions be controlled
and guided by the intellect and reason.

Week-14 Persistence

Part of  this weeks exercise was  to watch 1 of 4 movies that were recommended to us and to really capture and emotionalize the four defining elements of persistence which are summarized as, 1) A Definite Major Purpose in Life, 2) A Positive Mental Attitude, 3) A Plan Of Action and 4) A Master Mind Alliance.

As it turned out I had seen all 4 movies previously over the years, and I remembered enjoying each of them. Well, we love movies in my home and so we got a chance to watch all 4 of them again over the break, and all I can say is wow talk about a whole new perspective on things.

After viewing them for a second time, I realized I had not truly captured the essence or spirit behind them. I do not want to talk about the movies we watched and create a spoiler for those who have not seen them, but I encourage you to view these movies and look for the four elements listed above when you are watching them.

See for yourself, how these keys fit into your life and how you can use them to help you find your Bliss. They are like small puzzle pieces that you may possess in part or in whole but one without the others can leave you feeling lost or mislead you and take you off track or even cause you to quit on your dreams altogether when you are unable to make the connection.

Defining your Definite Major Purpose and a Positive Mental Attitude can take some real soul searching for some of us and then keeping  them is not light work either, especially when the going gets rough. Developing these first two key components is vital for your success and is vital in creating your Plan Of Action. Find a mentor or trusted adviser, someone you respect and who respects you and what you are trying to accomplish.

By using the strengths of others through your Master Mind Alliance you can begin to put these four elements into harmony with your goals, they are all essential.

You can call it what you want, but if you have a true desire, a passionate heart and will persist until you succeed, you can achieve anything, even if you lack the talent that others think is required.

The movies: Rudy, Cool Running’s, Door to Door and October Sky make sure you watch them with your kids, no matter how old they are. Peace, Mac
