Week 5 – I Become A Slave To Good Habits
All possession is based on consciousness. All gain is the result of accumulative consciousness. All loss is a result of scattering of consciousness
Master Key Part One - Sentence 17
As I enter Week 5 of the Master Keys Master Mind Alliance Experience I find the habits I am cultivating grow stronger.
This week has been very busy and I’m pressed to keep up with all I must do to keep my promises. That’s because I promised to take my son waterfowl and upland game hunting when he and his family moved to Alberta. Since they have done that, and I promised, we spent the first two days this week in the field from dawn till dusk.
The first day I forgot to put my Mandino, Service Card, Law of Giving Cards and DMP in my pack. As a result I recited all I could from memory. I did a great job on my DMP I am pleased to say. Yesterday I had them all in my pack and there I found myself, deep in the woods, sitting on a log, belting out my DMP and “do it now” and all the rest, for all the beautiful stillness to witness. Before hitting the hay I followed through on reading The Master Keys and sitting, reading my DMP with gusto as well as the cards.
Keeping my promises is becoming a good habit and I am becoming its slave.
This is spilling over into other aspects of my life too. As an example, while I previously very often skipped the midday meal in favour of continuing with a particular task, I now find myself at lunchtime, automatically having at least a simple meal like a sandwich before reading The Greatest Salesman In The World. Repeating aloud or in my mind “I can be what I will to be” is also a frequent and continuous habit. And on it goes.
By virtue of “upping the ante”, I am making significantly more progress on activities that are aimed at furthering my affiliate marketing business. Making a habit of working on building my Super Traffic Machine every day, and posting to the related blog at least once a week are promises I also keep. These can do nothing but help manifest my DMP.
More On Thought Is Power
In Master Keys Part 5 it is said “There is a fine estate awaiting a claimant…” and “To gain this estate three processes are necessary: you must earnestly desire it. You must assert your claim. You must take possession” (Sentences 14 and 16). This immediately brings to mind the question from Abraham (via Esther Hicks of abraham-hicks.com) which goes something like “do you realize the fortune you have amassed by virtue of your wanting the riches you have said you desire. It’s waiting there for you to claim it.”
I am being made aware that thought is ever creative, but also that merely wishing for a thing will not bring it into manifestation. This power is from within but we cannot receive it unless we give it. And it’s possession and continuance is contingent upon proper use. The more we give the more we get.
And so I see the significance of The Law of Giving and the four promises I now make every day, three times a day:
- I consciously give a smile, a cheery good morning to all whom I encounter. I accept their appreciation with thanks.
- I make note of and am grateful for the wonders and beauty of nature.
- I give without expectation of reciprocity.
- I promise to give hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love, consciously with every encounter, regardless of brevity.
It’s also amazing to me that the thought in the Blueprint Builder (5), that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice and that I consequently enter into no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects is expressed in so many ways and in so many contexts in The Master Keys.
This speaks to my spirit and resonates with me now even more strongly that before. Injustice and unfair treatment of anyone has always been anathema to me. I feel ever more vindicated.
This week I am instructed to sit as before but now to mentally select a place that has positive associations and make a complete mental picture of it. As cautioned, I come up with many such associations as I sit and strive for the stillness and repose.
I have yet to recognize the ideal. But I will persist.
