This week is bitter sweet.
For me it is a culmination of actually doing something consistently and with persistence for six whole months. Looking back at my calendar I did my first round of reads on Saturday September 24th 2016; and as Today is Saturday the 25th day of March 2017 that means we have officially passed the six month mark.
What does that mean?
To be honest I am not certain, Mark says it is time for us to commence, which of course means begin. But what will I do without the security of the webbies each Sunday? And the new lessons each week on Saturday? In fact I logged in today and felt sad that there wasn’t a new lesson to print out and begin reading, expanding my adventure a little further.
Will I continue on my own with the reading of Og? Will I go back and review the lessons individually in the coming weeks, essentially retaking the whole course without the MKMMA team by my side? So many questions, but I guess the only answer is to be found in the Master Key System itself.
Part 23 Introduction paragraph 4
“This is the science which embraces all sciences. It is the art which, above all arts, is relevant to human life. In the mastery of this science and this art there is opportunity for unending progression. Perfection in this is not acquired in six days, nor in six weeks, nor in six months. It is a labor of life. Not to go forward is to go backward.”
So there it is! Haanel tells us himself; in the last two sentences of this paragraph what we should do upon commencing tomorrow.
It is a labor of life! And a labor of love I might add!
Not to go forward is to go backward!
Commencement (for me at least) means that I now have the subject of study for the rest of my life. To not go Forward (become a better operator) is to go Backward (lose the tenuous ability we have nurtured to this point with the help of this class).
How apropos that during the week when this very paragraph appeared; (week 23, as you can read in my blog for that week) this profound truth came to me in a Sit.
“Failure is nothing more than a reminder that you need to sharpen your ability to operate the mechanism called mind”
So from now on in addition to giving my time allotment to my writing and the time I give the Creator to guide said writings; I will continue to provide myself time each day to be a continuous, life-long student of the Master Keys. I don’t know about you but I still fail regularly in my attempts at manifesting, and I am never going back to the life I was living standing on the shores of the ‘River of Dreams’ covered in cement.
I promise to spend the rest of my days, cleaning off the remaining cement and perfecting, to the best of my ability, the operation of the mechanism called mind.
I Always Keep My Promises!
Oh! One last thing! Did anyone else pick up on the little prayer at the end of the ‘Two Envelopes’ video Mark provided us with? It is now on a card, and kept with my DMP to be read three times each day. (I did change some of the wording to fit my own style, but it still has the same message)
Okay you asked nicely! I will share it with you.
“Divine creator of the Universe, Please hear my prayer: I ask today not for more riches, but for more wisdom with which I promise to accept and use wisely the wealth you so graciously blessed me with at the moment of my birth in the form of the power to direct my own mind to design and construct whatever life I desire. I love you! Thank you!”
To all of my classmates thank you! For you have influenced my journey as well!
Let’s Commence! Shall We?
