I’m all about definitions… This is an absolutely wonderful post Adam, Thank you for sharing!!!!!!
This morning I would had what I call a “break through” in understanding my own personal relationship with my world within. I recall Davene mentioning through hard mental labor and in stillness is where we find the keys to Idealization, Imagination and Visualization. I recall being confused by this… Yes.. but how do we visualize our world within.. and be still at the same time I asked myself?? It was something I struggled with but figured I’d give the process time to unfold for me… I would have to say the key is trusting and surrendering to the process and not trying to control the aspect as it unfolds for us…
I usually allocate about 30-45 minutes for my morning sit. There is a short time in which I work to ‘get my sillies out’ where the mind is busy busy with idea’s and chatter and like a high-school principle at an assembly… my “I am” comes to the mic and says shhhhhhhhhh and all of the assembly goes from a dull chatter to stillness..
So in the 30-45 minutes I devote some time to absolute stillness. I devote some time to the weekly goal. In week 9 we are focused on the visualization of our favorite flower growing from a seed. Becoming a little ‘plant-ling’ and then a budding flower… then a mature gorgeous flower blooming in harmony with universal design and its intended purpose. In this visualization I went on to picture what the flower does after its completed its life cycle…. One of my favorite flowers is a dandelion. In my part of the world the Dandelion is so successful at what it does they blanket the landscape and lawns in the spring time.
Once it reaches its Apex it goes from being that bright yellow flower to that white bulb of seeds with their attached sail to take them out into the world to continue the life cycle. They are so successful that we consider them ‘weeds’ There roots burrow deep.. they have so many medicinal properties… I have come to deeply respect how that plant performs its function. As I continued with the visualization.. I realized what I was watching unfold… A life cycle… and the law of growth. What we focuses on grows.. but more so what we focus on grows and MULTIPLIES PLENTUDIOUSLY if we give it the right focus love and care. If we give it the fertile mental soil for it to perform its function as the universal intelligence intended. 1 dandelion can become a sea of dandelions. As so above is so below. As so with the world within.. is the world without. By investing in ourselves and doing the hard mental labor.. pretty soon our focus with not only create a beautiful flower… but that life with go forth and multiply across the land and create beauty every where we look.
I was excited by this… that hard mental labor is finally starting to pay off!!! I felt it was time to switch modes. I began to focus on what my life looks like when my DMP has been fully manifested…. As I begin to visualize my mind started to chatter… it was like a huge burst of communicate was taking place… like a 3rd party hijacked my mind and was taking over the mic so to speak…. (I only realized afterwards that his was actually my Subby doing its thing) but as this happened I had the most vivid visualization I had ever had in my life. I was at my future condo, outside by the lake… I jumped into the water.. I remember being annoyed because of that blurry sight you get when your looking underwater. It was SO REAL! I felt the water on my face… i felt being immerse in the cold water. Diving deep and coming up to a sand bar of sorts… This wasn’t my intended direction… I was just sorta shoved into to the water.. and found myself there…. Then it hit me…. I was tapping into the language of the world within. I was connecting to the source that never sleeps and perceiving the ‘data’ with my conscious mind. I see it as noise and disjointed because its impossible for the conscious mind to begin to even fathom the amount of data and information the unconscious mind uses to construct the world within… That one of the reason why we call it the mysterious source that never sleeps right?
This would be like playing inside a house before the house is fully built.. only seeing bits and pieces of it.. maybe the plumping is missing.. or maybe a whole floor is missing.. This is happening on a global scale… but only internally… the WORLD within… but only when we see the finished process do we understand the vastness of what is happening
In my stillness I was diving right in as the unconscious mind was building my world before my eyes… I was like a child checking to see if the seed was sprouted yet. I was ‘playing in the mud’ while my subconscious began to erect vast landscapes vivid terrains….. and complex inter relationships with the world within based on what I was feeding it. I even visualized hearing this little whisper… “Can’t you see I’m working here… I’m busy… just relax … you’ll see soon”… As I became aware of this…. my mind began to race… I saw images of my children… my son with a beard (he’s 12 now… so this is a future him)… I saw my kids arguing like they always do…. I saw my car.. my watch… my tailored suit.. my Partner sitting in the back with my daughter visiting as my son sat up in front and we were going some where… I felt a sense of peace and tranquility that I have never felt before inside all of this……
Then I felt myself get jolted into another plume of noise and disjointed chatter… realizing that I was connecting to the subconscious GOD code I call it now… I backed off and watched this vast and in indecernable structure being build inside the underpinnings in my world within. I simply just let it take shape.. as the structure completed I felt it melt into the landscape becoming again something my conscious mind cannot perceive….. I will say that each of us.. in putting in the mental hard labor.. will create a beautiful world within.. and all it requires is for us to the the CHAMPION and GATEKEEPER of our subconscious. To love ourselves first and foremost.. to nurture the world within and let our love shine. When we love our selves when we fulfill ourselves… that radiates outward and we begin to attract loving situations and loving relationships… The trick is not to get tricked into looking into the external circumstances and confusing them for where our focus needs to be. We need to be fair with ourselves this is a process of unfolding and personal evolution. Any thing and everything that happens to us is because of what we have created for ourselves and in understanding this we can better key into taking responsibility and accountability for it.
In Week 8 I’ve really started to see some huge changes in how I feel deep and there is a sense of definition and understanding that I did not have before. The observer in me is alive and well. I do find myself needing to restart the mental diet at least 6 or 7 times a day or more. But I find as I become more and more aware there are just some roads that I do not go down. Furthermore, I feel that each road I choose not to go down leaves me with so much more mental energy to achieve the various tasks that I have set myself to do.
While doing the meditation with the warship it became apparent at how epic of an exercise it really was. If you think about its not just the warship that we need to look at… its literally every person that worked on the building the warship. The manufacturers that created the parts. But then as the ship is out to sea there is the life path and blueprint of every single sailor on that ship and how each individual contributes to the readiness of the vessel. I find my consciousness simply tracing an outline of everything involved… I truly think I could spend months and years on this exercise alone expanding my awareness further and further into all the directions that need to be examined thoroughly here.
When I intuitively explore the idea of what takes place when we fall prey to negativity in our lives I see how quickly the negative thought patterns can layer themselves and weigh us down. We start with attracting someone that represents the current state of our blueprint and a negative experience in our lives. Then the second layer would be the one where we choose to have a negative reaction. Then the 3rd layer would be how we react and what we sending into our world within which then is immediately reflected in the world without. Then we get the reaction from the person we are having the interaction with and then the process continues layer upon layer. Until we break the cycle loss will always bring in more loss.
I have held on strong to reading Scroll 2 three times a day. I feel it becomes so much more powerful when we change ‘will’ to am. That immediate manifestation of love in our lives. “I Greet this day with love in my heart” … such a powerful set of words. I cannot control the actions of others… but I can be in control of my world within. As I take responsibility, accountability and take charge of my world within I have been having full faith that the experiences I deal with will change. But furthermore… anyone that cannot process a me vibrating a more positive frequency in my life simply will cease to be a part of my life. The biggest challenge here for me has to become the person who is ready to let go of any and all of those elements that no longer serve my life path in order to make room for the new things that will serve.
I am watching my life unfold before my eyes in new ways that I could never have even begun to fathom. I am being connected to people and circumstances which have allowed me to gain a footing and build a momentum that are pushing me towards my Definite Major Purpose with an increasing momentum… I am very thankful for this process and I feel to be very fortunate to be surrounded by such a great team of people to help me adopt these new skills in my life. I am aligning myself closer and closer with my future self and it feels pretty amazing….
I hope everyone’s had a great week!!! I am Looking forward to Sundays Webinar!!!!!
So… I can’t believe its already week 8. How is it that time has progressed so quickly? Its amazing how quickly we can create change in our lives when we make a decision and feed and nourish our minds in the right way…
When we started this course Mark was pretty clear with the honor requirements. 2 Binders… 2 copies of Greatest Salesman… Coloring pencil’s etc… What I’ve noticed for myself is I have been reading right before I go to bed.. and right when I first wake up. So what I have done was compile a small folder folder that I can use that has all my material by my side when I go to bed.. and wake up.
For this week I have My DMP, Greatest Salesmen Scroll 2, Master Keys Week 8, Work Book Week 8, 7 Laws, The Guy in The glass, Compensation Essay and the Mental Diet document all collected together in one booklet. This makes it absolutely easy to make the reading right before bed as well as the reading first thing in the morning quick and easy.
I found that fumbling around with my binders as well as well as any loose leaf printouts as well as the queue cards just made it absolutely easy to get things lost and confused. So I ended up getting a a clip board so i could mount all of my documents including a laminated copy of my Shapes to have laying around for to feed the subconscious mind whenever there is so much as a glance over at it.
So once I am done with the weeks material, all documentation finds its way into my binders. I just find for my life style now I am mobile for a lot of the day so its great to save the bag space. I was carrying my binders around and its made it UBER bulky for me in the past. Another handy little trick I’ve started to do is taking a picture of my Flash cards putting them into a document and setting each queue card to fill one page of a word document. The converting that word document into a PDF File so then I can upload that file to my phone and scroll through the cards if I am out or at my own leisure. If anyone needs a bit of help with that please get a hold of me if you like. Have a evening everyone!!
This past week has been a struggle for me. Usually words come easy when it comes to Blog time but I haven’t been able to find the right words to convey the process that has been taking place through Week 7 into Week 8. This morning (Sunday Morning…) I was hidden with a sudden Epiphany for me…
Last weeks Webinar connected me with the idea of the importance of the forgiveness of others in my life and to truly open myself up to letting go.. I became aware of the Miriad of things that I had been holding onto and how it was slowing down to the beautiful process that is taking place in my life. Any of the resentment we hold into is like a ball and chain for us in terms of allowing us to truly move on and become something else..
When it comes to relationships.. friendships… work… personal.. etc.. , I have found myself asking.. Why couldn’t things be different.. Why couldn’t have person A.. or Person B treated me different.. Why didn’t I act differently? Why didn’t this work out differently.. Why was circumstance xyB so difficult… These things tend to way on my mind and seem to create a jerking motion as to where my own magnifier glass is supposed to be focusing… I’ve noticed this during my moments of stillness… all of the sudden my mind is somewhere else and my observer is like.. “Hey YOU! get back here!!!!”….
The course material has communicated about how important focus is in our lives. So any time we are focusing on things that are counter productive to achieving our goals we are only slowing our momentum. I have been finding myself getting STUCK in those situations where my mind wanders into those counter productive scenario’s….
Master Keys Week 7
13. Clearness and accuracy are obtained only by repeatedly having the image in
mind. Each repeated action renders the image more clear and accurate than the
preceding, and in proportion to the clearness and accuracy of the image will the
outward manifestation be. You must build it firmly and securely in your mental
world, the world within, before it can take form in the world without, and you can
build nothing of value, even in the mental world unless you have the proper
material. When you have the material you can build anything you wish, but make
sure of your material. You cannot make broadcloth from shoddy.
Every week I have one point from the Master keys that seems to hit me like a tonne of bricks. Unexpectedly for this week… the quote resounding in my brain.. the things that made things click into place was “You Cannot make Broadcloth from Shoddy”
Looking up Broadcloth.. here is what Wikipedia has to say:
Broadcloth is a dense, plain woven cloth, historically made of wool. Today, most broadcloth is cotton or a cotton blend. The defining characteristic of Broadcloth is not its finished width, but the fact that it was woven much wider (typically 50 – 75% wider than its finished width) and then heavily milled (traditionally the cloth was worked by heavy wooden trip hammers in hot soapy water in order to shrink it) in order to reduce it to the required width. The effect of the milling process is to draw the yarns much closer together than could be achieved in the loom and allow the individual fibres of the wool to bind together in a felting process. This results in a dense, blind, face cloth with a stiff drape which is highly weather-resistant, hard wearing and capable of taking a cut edge without the need for being hemmed.
Now here is what Wikipedia has to say about Shoddy:
Shoddy – Recycled or re-manufactured wool. Historically generated from loosely woven materials. Benjamin Law invented shoddy and mungo, as such, in England in 1813. He was the first to organise, on a larger scale, the activity of taking old clothes and grinding them down into a fibrous state that could be re-spun into yarn. The shoddy industry was centered on the towns of Batley, Morley, Dewsbury and Ossett in West Yorkshire, and concentrated on the recovery of wool from rags. The importance of the industry can be gauged by the fact that even in 1860 the town of Batley was producing over 7000 tonnes of shoddy. At the time there were 80 firms employing a total of 550 people sorting the rags. These were then sold to shoddy manufacturers of which there were about 130 in the West Riding. Shoddy is inferior to the original wool; “shoddy” has come to mean “of poor quality” in general (not related to clothing), and the original meaning is largely obsolete.
So, you can’t make Broadcloth.. a superior fabric.. from Shoddy.. and inferior, chopped up.. ground recycled fabric… Why is this so significant for me in this case?? Because If I think about it… Every experience I have had is because it is something that I created. If I own this out right.. and say that all my experiences are the result of the creative force I have manifested through my connection between my conscious and subconscious mind… The World Within.. creates the World Without. The entire universe is a Manifestation of Idealization of thought!
If I am unhappy with the results of my life… then I must change the material I build my life with. If I deeply desire cloth-knit connection with friends and family.. then I must use Broadcloth.. not Shoddy. If I deeply desire a $16,000 a month passive income.. again.. I must use Broad Cloth.. no Shoddy…
Any and all experiences I have ever had in my life.. good and bad are the result of the material I have used to build out my experience. The only way I am going to evolve is If I make the conscious choice to truly forgive.. to truly “Greet this Day with Love in my heart”… or else… remain a simple peddler in the marketplace of life…
As soon as this really started to sink in… I began to feel a sense of relief and peace that I have never felt before. I realized how important it was to truly free my mind of all of the things in the past that no longer served me. How important it is to Forgive.. and Eliminate old thought patterns from my being..
The Dictionary Website, defines eliminate as the following:
If I am to Eliminate something from my life… It means that these thoughts no longer even appear as thoughts or take up any time whatsoever in my mind. 1 second.. 1 minute.. 1 hour… all of these time frames are absolutely important any time I am taking to focus on something else other than achieving my definite chief aims.. My goals.. my dreams.. my passions and purpose.. In order to do this.. true forgiveness is absolutely essential.
Above all else… I think its imperative that we forgive ourselves before we forgive anyone else… with all this resounding in my head… I am filled with an absolute sense of peace and empowerment. Realizing that if I am going to build the life I want… I must use all the best material. I must do the work.. The hard mental labor. But most of all realizing that this is not just something to do now.. but it is something to make a priority for the rest of my life. MKMMA teaches us how to live different.. to live a more fulfilled.. and more empowered life.
I feel the need right now to reaffirm to myself why I am here… why I started this journey.. why this is so important and what I am willing to do to dig in deeper and make the most of this time in my life. Now is a perfect time for me to use all the best materials in my life to build that Bliss filled life that has been so clearly and eloquently defined in my DMP (Definite major purpose) and Personal Pivotal Needs…I want to thank the Mastermind team for all there continued help and support.!
Quote from the Greatest Salesmen Scroll 1:
“My actions are ruled by appetite, passion, prejudice, greed, love, fear, environment, habit, and the worst of these tyrants is habit. Therefore, if I must be a slave to habit let me be a slave to good habits. My bad habits must be destroyed and new furrows prepared for good seed.”
The past 7 weeks there has been a lot of tilling the soil and preparing my mind for good Seed. At this moment one of the many things that I am thankful for is how this course has made me accountable for what I feed my mind. I look at everything through a very different set of eyes. My “I AM”ness has really began to assert itself. I do truly feel that I am shedding my old skin. Shedding my old ideals… This new me is connecting to my life around me… It feels like a change of command parade where my Old friend is leaving to become a part of my past while the current version of me leads me into the future.
I feel as I continue to work on this 7 day mental diet…. the magnifying glass becomes much more significant of a concept with the mental diet. Because I’ve noticed as I’ve become more aware of the negative thought trends the more I see how the negative moments take me out of focusing on reinforcing my new blue print with the help of my subby. Its like the conscious mind is what holds the light of the subconscious mind in place. Through the mental diet, we are constant learning to become better at focusing our light, steadying our hand and creating that focus we need to allow our brain to become adjusted to the new peptides associated with our new blue print.
Scott, that is so in sync with what I was thinking… I had a thought about what quote will I write down on Scroll 3 when we are done with Scroll 2 and that was exactly it! For me I’m getting full on into Ashtanga Yoga every morning and starting up with a Wall climbing club with the focus mainly on my core… I absolutely love reading Scroll 2.. so powerful!
We started anew scroll in “The Greatest Salesman in the World” this week and I found one paragraph that truly resonated with me.
“And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh, rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.”
One of my personal pivotal needs is true health…
