Master Key Experience Week 1-3 The Journey Begins
The excitement is palpable as a new cohort of adventurers launch themselves into the unknown. Master Key Experience Week 1 begins anew for them. For me it’s the third time around. It began in September 2015 and continued through September 2016 when a new session began. I’ve now come full circle again. I now have the privilege of Guiding new members toward their future selves.
Haanel immediately provides the challenge to realize the world and circumstances in which we live is a result of the way we think. The circumstances in which we find ourselves today are the results of past thinking. Right off the mark he writes:
“Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude.
The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore, the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking.
This is true because we must “be” before we can “do,” and we can “do” only to the extent which we “are,” and what we “are” depends upon what we “think.”
Along with the challenge he offers hope to the eager student. You can create a new reality. To do so you must change the way you think.
“Would you bring into your life more power? Get the power consciousness. More health? Get the health consciousness. More happiness? Get the happiness consciousness. Live the spirit of these things until they become yours by right. It will then become impossible to keep them from you.”
And so each new member of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance begins his or her journey with those words echoing in their minds. I didn’t really hear them clearly at first, especially during Master Key Experience Week 1, and so it may be with all new comers. This may be due to lack of attention. But it’s most likely resistance to the call to adventure. Stepping into the unknown is scary stuff.
The discerning student will also note that Og Mandino (The Scroll Marked I in The Greatest Salesman In The World) provides the key to beginning the journey.
“I commence my journey unencumbered with either the weight of unnecessary knowledge or the handicap of meaningless experience. Nature already has supplied me with knowledge and instinct far greater than any beast in the forest…… .”
Throw off the shackles of past experience and confused thinking. Realize as Haanel says also, that within you is the power to create a new reality. Learning to harness that power begins with the realization you have it. Putting it to work for you is the hard part.
And the latter is what all students of the Master Key Experience have every intention of doing. The excitement of earning a scholarship and anticipation of the new beginning has abated. Master Key Experience Week 1 is underway. Now the work starts. And the fun begins!
May The Power Be Yours,
