For a loooong time I have been saying I want to read more, I want to write more, I want to meditate more, I want to start a blog…but I just didn’t make time for those things. Why? I don’t know. Somehow I had a host of excuses, somehow I never had enough time.
One of the things that was suggested when we started was that we would somehow create an abundance of time for everything, despite having more tasks to complete daily. I wasn’t sure how this would work…I’m still not sure…but it seems to be true. Yes, I have to get up extra early to get all my practices done before work. Yes, I have to figure out how to weave readings into the middle of the day. Yes. I have to make time to blog & write & think & read in the evening. Plus regular life…and still somehow it all fits. I’m amazed.
But if nothing else comes of this experience (which I highly doubt will be the case), I have already met all my goals, almost effortlessly. I am reading more, I am writing more, I am sitting more (despite a wandering mind), & I started a blog…which has seriously been on my list for 2-3 years. For me that is a simple & gratifying success.
Thank You Master Keys. It’s in the actions that change is made. DO IT NOW!
It’s been a really interesting week of getting used to incorporating the Master Keys exercises into daily life. It’s a big time commitment, but feels worth it. Many of the concepts I am already familiar with…some of which have been very present and put into practice at other times in my life…but it is the ACTIONS I signed up for. I have been studying these types of concepts–universal laws–for years, but I am not always good at DOING the things that keep me in alignment with them. I was drawn to this course because it was based around ACTIONS and Practices that put these Universal laws into motion. I need discipline. I need repetition. I need consistency. Not because I crave those things, but because I have adversity to them. I had a lot of discipline as a child and took on a lot of responsibility at a young age. I owned my own business by the age of 26. So by 30, I was ready to throw those ways to the wind and decided to learn how to have some fun. I was seeking FREEDOM. And in process forgot how necessary discipline is for growth…which I am addicted to. Since high school I have been on a spiritual personal growth journey, reading books, studying religions, practicing yoga, sitting in stillness, journaling, self-analyzing…manifesting, intuiting. The last few years have been a hard road of loss, grief, change, disappointment, heartbreak…over and over. I grew and grew some more, but only because of the challenges life threw at me. Like learning to swim in the ocean to stay alive. I kept my head up, I kept a smile on my face as much as possible, but no way could I make the same concerted efforts I had in the past…with direction. I chose Master Keys because I was ready for a jump start; because I wanted to make change in my life and needed direction. And it is perfect. I understand the concepts, but it is the repetitive daily practices that challenge me…and make change. Already I feel new synaptic grooves being worn in my brain. I feel new patterns being established slowly…some days I wake up full of excitement, some days I wake up exhausted & avoiding…but I do it anyway…I trust the process…because I have seen what it has done for others…and if you want what someone has, you have to do what they have done. Many friends are asking if this is some collection of “inspirational talks”…and it is not, but it is hard to explain. I’m retraining my brain…& my body. I’ve found in recent years that I am in very little to no way motivated by the external. Everything that drives me to do anything comes from within. And that is where this course takes you…Within.
