Week #22-A —MKMMA Control

This week I focused on Scroll VI  The world we live in is one of duality  and temporality, Scroll VII brought that fact home to me this week.

Moods are temporary  OG states “It is one of natures tricks, little understood, that each day I awaken with moods that have changed from yesterday.  Yesterday’s joy will become today’s sadness;  yet todays’ sadness will grow into tomorrow’s joy.  Inside me is a wheel constantly turning from sadness to joy, from exultation to depression, from happiness to melancholy.  Like the flowers, today’s full bloom of joy fades and wither into despondency, yet I will remember that as today’s dead flower carries the seed of tomorrow’s bloom so, too, does today’s sadness carry the seed of tomorrow’s joy.    Today I will be master of my emotions.”

To be able to be fully human and have all our emotions, but in control of them instead of our emotions controlling us is such a wonderful gift.                              

“Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions: strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts?”  OG

As I begin to understand and develop my awareness and skill around emotions and control  it is becoming clear that it opens the doorway to humility.   As I begin to see how my emotions/moods affect me I also realize it in others. 

I also see how emotions give us life.  They have energy behind them and to be able to master the type of energy I live with each day and exude is an incredible gift.

OG states:  “From this moment I am prepared to control whatever personality awakes in me each day.  I will master my moods through positive action and when I master my moods I will control my destiny.”

Control, sweet control–control of the being.  No denial, just control.

Many Blessings!

Week #22—Thougt, Vibrations, and Healing–MKMMA

I am beginning to realize we are on a journey to either start or continue our spiritual awakening in the MKMMA course. I know each individual who started the course came in at different levels of study and awareness, and each of us are getting what we need to excel in our individual journey, which is incredible in itself. I am learning so much from each person in the course as they write and share their experiences.

This week we were asked to practice being in silence, an incredible tool to expand and take us deeper into our journey within

A book written by Valarie Hunt, “The infinite Mind: The Science of Human Vibration” is one I studied awhile back when I was studying “Zen BodyTherapy”. These past few weeks I pulled it out and have been going through it again. Its as though I never read it before. So many things she states are so much clearer now, with new meaning and understanding.

Given this week was on thought and healing our bodies along with being in silence I wanted to share this with you from Valarie Hunts Book; “The Infinite Mind: The Science of Human Vibrations”.

“How can we grow to acknowledge our divine nature? First, we must quiet ourselves from the fury of living and doing, to the silence of being and feeling. We must recognize that we can’t make it happen, but we can negotiate its occasion. Secondly, we must carefully survey the quality of human awareness around us, in our friends, acquaintances and work associates. Do these nourish our higher nature, drag us down, or provide nothing? you will notice that as you enliven spiritually, those of your friends who do not will fade from your orbit.

We modern humans announce that we are no longer content with vicarious religious experiences. We want our lives touched spiritually and deeply. A personal God who is accessible must be part of a new world model. We want to feel the hand of God touch us. Through that hand we will move others to higher levels, to heal and know beyond what we have learned. At these times we become human interveners. We sense the source of that power, but we are not merely channels. We are God manifest on this earth.

At first we will find it earth-shattering to comprehend humanness on the divine plane. Only by observing it in others and by comprehending its glory do we learn that it is our evolutionary work to bring such insights and experiences to this earth. For such knowledge we will give profound thanks.

Evolution does not occur by happenstance. Its goal is to bridge the levels of consciousness so that we live on all levels with all capacities simultaneously. It takes place in the mind with what that mind selects as worthy of its dedication. What has your mind selected from your experiences? Mind mastery is the soul’s unavoidable journey.

When God is experienced, this event is as real as any sensory perception of one’s own self. In those instances, we have victory over death and pain. We are in touch with the ongoingness of the soul. We understand the divine plan and our role in it. We come closer to perfection, and we are worthy being called God’s co-creator. Science and spirituality started together and then diverged for many centuries. Now they are coming back together. Two of the greatest forces in human thoughts are science and spirituality. Lederman, one of our eminent particle physicists, said “I think we are on the threshold of finding God–or at least higher glory. We haven’t found it yet, but even science is looking in the right direction”. Science has given us new insight that as our field grows in vibrational complexity, as we maintain its dynamic position on the ridge of chaos, our God-like nature will dominate our consciousness and our life”.</p>

Week #21 MKMMA — Emotions

This week we were asked to look at how to use our emotions of anger, fear, unworthiness, guilt, jealousy and hurt feelings to expand our comfort zone. 

As I began this process, I noticed I had to expand my awareness, stop and think before I responded when I recognized one of these emotions occurring, which gave me access to a different outcome from my normal response.  I actually saw I had a choice in the moment, I could actually  choose how to  respond/react if I stopped, took the time to think, take control of my being through awareness.   But, what are emotions? One source  I found said

“Emotion is aroused energy, a human power source.”  We know that without some level of energy arousal from emotion, there is no life.”   from the book Infinite Mind.

Also the next three statements I found most intriguing and engaging to my inquiry:

 “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  Recognition of the mystery of the universe is the source of all true science.  He to whom emotions are a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”  by Albert Einstein.

“I believe that in  the last years of the 20th century, the truly monumental discoveries about human behavior will be information about the emotions associated with the profoundly mystical qualities of the human psyche, the soul.”  by Valarie Hunt

“If we wish to be truly human, we must cultivate our mystical nature.  This requires re-examination of our beliefs about emotions”  by Valarie Hunt

Socrates, many centuries ago, wisely stated;  “To know they self will set you free.”

So, this simple exercise has taken me to a deeper level of this journey within.  Emotions!  I think I could spend years on this topic alone.  Thank you Mark J and team for leading us to this great inquiry into the world within and what is possible on this Hero’s Journey.

Week #20 MKMMA- Within

Reading Haanel this week was very profound  and I found the following two points he made very engaging:

“To become inspired means to get out of the beaten path, out of the rut, because extraordinary results require extraordinary means.  When we come into a recognition of the Unity of all things and that the source of all power is within, we tap the source of inspiration.”

“We are told that” In Him we live and move and have our being,” and we are told that “He” is a Spirit, and again, that “He” is Love, so that every time we breathe, we breathe this life, love, and spirit.  This Pranic Energy, or Pranic Ether, we could not exist a moment without it.  It is the Cosmic energy; it is the Life of the Solar Plexus.”

I have been contemplating these two points this week and finding there is a whole reality I know very little about the world within.  I remember I did a 9 day intensive that was so beyond words and I walked in and sat down and the leader said close your eyes and go within.  I found it so difficult to sit their with my eyes closed and thought oh my God if I have to do this for 9 days I will never make it.  I had absolutely no clue what going within meant.  It was the first time I was introduced to the world of going within.  I did make it through and had a new appreciation for what going within meant and how incredibly sweet it was to do.

Doing MKMMA and doing the work of the course has shown me and taken me deeper into the world within.  It takes practice, awareness, desire, courage, and so many other qualities, which we all have, to go on this journey within.  We just need to do it.  I think it is safe to say it is our next frontier for us to journey into (if we choose).

What is really possible when we live there?

 

Week # 19 MKMMA -I AM

I took the time this week to watch the movie “I AM” and what a beautiful movie.  It left me very inspired and uplifted.   I was once told by a spiritual master the “the greatest gift as individuals we could give to world was to become aware of the truth and change our consciousness and break free of our attachment to the material world.”  Bottom line to go within and find out who we really are and live life from that scared place.  The movie ” I AM”  in my opinion was one man’s journey into that place, to find the truth, that material things do not bring happiness, love, freedom, joy, it comes from within. 
The movie demonstrated that as we change our consciousness it is not only for ourselves,  but with a collective consciousness we can and will change our world.  The movie demonstrated mans true nature is  to care for others even though at this time caring for others is mostly covered over by a drive for material things.  That true nature tends to come out in a crisis, where in most instances humanity rallies to help one another. 

Below is a quote I want to share with you:

“The only thing people really care about , truly care about, is the love of God.

The thing they want more than anything is love, And without that connection to God, they can’t have the feeling of love they really want.

There is nothing greater.

There is nothing more important to each and every human being than love.

It is everything.”   Gourasana

Many Blessings!

 

Week #18 MKMMA-Breaking Free

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” C. S. Lewis

This is how I am feeling this week, like I am shedding a shell and giving myself permission beyond a doubt to be who I am and express my individuality. Our creator in his/her wisdom has given each of us our unique individual spirit and gifts to bring to world.

Only those who are courageous enough to step outside the box and create through thought and connection to the Universal bring forth the miraculous, however big or small it may be.

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” Muhammed Ali

I am choosing to Fly into the unknown, and take risks to discover what living in communion with the Universal brings. I feel like a newborn with a whole world to discover and master.

Many Blessings!

Week #17-Hero’s Journey-MKMMA

As the Hero’s Journey continues, I am finding my life changing in so many ways. I am finding so much gratitude for so many things, simple things in my life. As I continue to keep acknowledging daily what I am grateful for, my life is changing before my eyes. By continuing to go within, I am finding a peace and happiness that is so real and nurturing it takes my breath away.

A quote by Tara Brach:
“True refuge is that which allows us to be at home, at peace, to discover true happiness. The only thing that can give us true refuge is the awareness and love that is intrinsic to who we are. Ultimately, its our own true nature.”

Aw quote by Dada Vaswani:
“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give -pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind you can never be happy.”

As I find this inner peace and continue to go deeper into this journey within, I am able to give to myself and others. The MKMMA course is an incredible structure that provides a way to travel this Hero’s Journey of self discovery by taking the journey within. We are venturing into a new world of love, kindness, gratitude, humility, awareness and how to live powerfully in this world.

One thing I am learning and I’d like to share, is that kindness and giving to others makes me happy and brings me great joy. Giving does not have to cost money, you can give of yourself in so many ways. We can give people the gifts of:
love
forgiveness
your humility
acknowledgment
being present and smile at them
listening to them
your self-control
your gratitude
patience
kindness
care
enthusiasm
encouragement
inspiration

There are so many ways to give, I could go on and on. Not only does it bring others happiness or joy, but the giver gets so much in return. “You can’t get love unless you give it.”

I have found the key to success with this course is to do the work, live the practices, incorporate them into my life and know the transformation will occur if I am participating fully. The MKMMA course cannot do it for me, it can only provide the structure, knowledge and guidance. It takes me participating and doing the work. Success is the outcome if I am disciplined to do the work and NEVER GIVE UP!

I am truly grateful I said yes to the invitation to do the course and that I have not listened to my internal conversations/old blue print, that has screamed in my head to quit along the way. I am truly blessed to be on this journey with such incredible leaders and people who are bold enough to take this journey within on.

Everyone participating —Thank you —without each of you this would not be happening.
Many Blessings and sending each of you love!
