Week 23 – The Hero’s Journey – The Master Key Experience


The Master Key

The Master Key

In a few weeks, I will be a graduate of the finest school in the Universe.  The Master Key Experience, a six-month pay it forward scholarship, was an intensive, yet mind-opening experience.  It was, beyond a doubt, the wisest decision I’ve ever made in my life.

 Wise Decisions

Wise Decisions

I learned:

  1. It’s a privilege to give.  Result: I have big plans to build a foundation that benefits children.
  2. The heart and soul must be cleared of all hatred before any contact with Infinite Intelligence can occur. Result:  I have forgiven everyone.
  3. Good habits are the key to success. Result:  I have replaced my bad habits with good habits and have shed my old skin.  I am born anew.
  4. Love is my greatest weapon. Result: All hate has been let from my veins.  I greet each and every day with love in my heart.
  5. Persistence is one of the greatest principles of success. Result:  Like the raindrop that washes away a mountain, I persist until I succeed.
  6. I am nature’s greatest miracle. Result:  “I am not on this earth by chance.  I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.” Og Mandino.
  7. Positive thinking is the only route to manifesting my dreams. Result:  I am currently in reach of my goals.  I can taste it!
  8. I can access the power within me through silence. Result:  I look forward to meditating each morning for 15 minutes. That’s when intuition arrives.
  9. I can be the master of my emotions. Result:  I can instantly replace a negative thought with a positive one.  Or as Og says, “If I feel depressed I will sing.  If I feel sad, I will laugh.”
  10. Man is not a body with a spirit, but a spirit that has a body. Result:  I know there is no such thing as death.  My spirit will always be.

These 10 points are only a fraction of what I learned in the past six months.  I will be sad to leave, but will sing and take great joy in the journey ahead.
