The Journey Begins Once Again

The journey begins once again…

If you wish to walk through my journey again, start here.

Master Key Master Mind Alliance

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us – Joseph Campbell

My Master Key journey first began here.

This is a journey within not without. The destination is inward, not outward to some fanciful location, as intriguing as that may be. The journey is through the last and truly unmapped locals. This is a journey through the vast expanse of your mind. I did not specify a destination because that depends upon you. The ticket for this journey can’t be purchased at any price. Your money is no good here.

Let me tell you a secret: There is no secret to your success except the work that you are willing to do to improve yourself and those around you. You alone are responsible in manifesting your own future.

You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness. ~ Zig Ziglar

As much as I like The Secret, you my friend must take action in order to make it happen. Thought without feeling is akin to the energizer bunny without batteries. Thought with feeling but without action is akin to a dead battery. If thought and feeling are not energized with action, then you might as well take a shower without water. The resulting formula is the same: Looks great at first glance but smells like dead fish at closer examination. Without action there can be no momentum. Without momentum there can be no progress. And isn’t this journey all about our personal progress? Yes, I think it is. So lets roll up our sleeves and dig in shall we?

In other words, do the work. Read Haanel, listen to OG thrice daily and listen to what Mark J is trying to teach you. Don’t look for a microwave explanation or simple formula. Dive in with both feet and delve within for that is the exploration that awaits: Charting the unknown possibilities of Existence!

If you want to change the world,

You must be the change you wish to see in the world ~ Gandhi

Week 24 – Supplemental


, , , , , , , , ,

Captain’s blog, supplemental. For the past 24 weeks we’ve been where few have gone before. I’m seeing strange shapes posted all over the ship. Some have words within the shapes and some have only shapes, all with different colors. And there are 3×5 index cards everywhere with strange writings on them. They appear hieroglyphic in nature, but some are indecipherable. Practically every crewman is walking around with a compass around their neck. One gal even has a tattoo of a compass on her wrist. Instead of ship status reports being sent to Starfleet each week, apparently I’ve been writing something called a “blog” instead. Bones, what does all this mean?

Dammit Jim, I’m just a country doctor, not a blog expert…

(Star Trek flashbacks)

The Master Key program has officially concluded, but that doesn’t mean our journey is over. This is not the end. Nor is it the beginning of the end. It is however, the end of the beginning. So, don’t worry, be happy.


Many of my blog posts have videos attached. Many of those showcase classic music from my youth. Using videos makes the blog experience more dynamic. It engages the visual as well as the vibratory senses. I remember one of Mark J’s videos talking about adding your other senses into the mix. He was at a local hotel in Hawaii and said that he always drinks the lemon water when he goes there. This adds another dimension to the positive affirmations he is creating. After that, each Sunday, while watching the weekly webinar, I eat a bowl of fresh pineapple chunks. This not only creates a more tropical feel to the webcast, but it stirs up memories of my time in the Philippines in 2005. I went there to marry the island princess of my dreams. Did I manifest her? No, but I do believe that I manifested the opportunity to meet her and thus open the door to love. I spent nearly a month in that tropical paradise. We had our honeymoon on a small south pacific island called Camiguin Island. We visited many places there including the sunken cemetery, Katibawasan Falls, Ardent Hot Springs and White Island. We also walked the streets of her home town of Butuan City. There we enjoyed fresh pineapple from the street vendors. They would chop the end off and core the fruit in seconds. Giving us a bag full of the most juicy goodness known to man. Awesome place to have a honeymoon.

As I reminisce about what has become my life, I must say that it turned out just fine. Regardless of my self-defeating attitude of my younger years. I overcame myself and became a better human being in the process. The pain from my past has only made me stronger. Without that pain, I would not appreciate the present as much as I do. Much of this mind you was manifested long before the Master Key system was introduced into my life. So why did I bother joining with some mystic / occult type system? Easy answer: because it works. The Master Key System is definitely not some type of mystical or occult type crap peddled to the masses by unscrupulous people. This system has a proven track record of success. Originally created by Charles Haanel, used by Napoleon Hill and leveraged by many other to achieve great wealth for themselves and improve the lives of countless others. Mark J’s Master Key program takes Haanel’s work and interwoven other great thinkers such as Og Mandino, Joseph Campbell, transcendentalists Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau to name a few. Mark also presents hard science to back up his theories. My theory is that this class is a unique experience one should not pass up. I highly recommend the course to anyone seeking enlightenment or at least for people looking for better answers to life’s challenges. I can tell you one thing with certainty: The Master Key program has validated the spiritual journey I started 34 years ago. You can read more about that journey in a previous blog titled: The Power of Positive Affirmations.

The following is a series of videos in an attempt to weave one last story together as a tribute to all the hard work done by Mark J, Davene and company to create a unique human experience that will be savored for a lifetime, enjoy the ride…

Our time upon this journey is not yet complete. I treasure our time together, for our time on this planet is finite in nature. We may or may not be entering into the Age of Aquarius. I’ll leave that up to you to decide. Either way it makes for a very nice segue into the next music video.


We are nearing the time of Easter, which brings me to the next video. I watch Jesus Christ Superstar almost every year around this time. It creates a very strong emotion within that makes me shine without. It takes a bit more than mouthing the words of devotion to God or the Creator to increase your vibration. The words have to be charged with emotion and conviction. The liar only deceives himself while the earnestly spoken word will receive the keys to enlightenment.


Many people in the Master Key program have expressed some despair, realizing that our experience is coming to a close. A recurring question comes to mind: Could we start again please?


One thing is certain. The Master Key program is creating a lot of buzz. Not the kind of buzz a certain carpenter created 2000 years ago of course. But this line of thought leads us into the third installment from the movie JCSS:


My personal belief is that our soul, or life force if you will, transcends time and space. Our essence is not encapsulated within this lifetime, in this three dimensional universe. Our time here is finite but our spirit is infinite. We exist because we are aware that we exist. I AM because that is my will. My life, your life, has meaning and it has a purpose. Through the power of thought and through the lives of my children, I will indeed live forever… And so will you!


We are all living in cages, with the door wide open. ~ George Lucas

Week 24 – The Grand Illusion


, , , , ,

The Grand Illusion is that matter is not “solid” at all. The atoms that make up our physical universe are 99.99% empty space. If the universe is mostly empty, then is the glass ever half full or empty, or is it always mostly empty? It takes an enormous amount of energy to create matter. Einstein proved this with his famous equation E=MC^2. I studied his theory of general and special relativity in high school. If it takes an enormous amount of energy to create matter (that’s you and me), then isn’t the reverse also true? One only needs to research the bombs dropped on Japan during WWII to find the answer. If we are able to access our higher self (Source Energy), do we not have access to unlimited energy? Keep in mind that a very small amount of matter was required to create the energy to devastate an entire city near the close of WWII. The reality is that the atom, at it’s core, is really nothing more than energy manifesting itself as matter. This has been proven with the advent of Quantum Physics. Since we are also made of physical matter, we too are energy incarnate. We are not a physical body with a spirit. We are in fact spiritual beings that just happen to have a physical body. If we are energy, then we also radiate a particular energy signature or frequency. A sort of radio transmitter and receiver if you will. And, if we are really energy radiating at a particular frequency, what drives the human radio? The answer is Thought. If we are aware that we exist, then we do. It really is that simple. Every thought has an energy frequency of it’s own. Here is a little thought experiment that eventually led to Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle.

I first encountered the Uncertainty principle in college. Werner Heisenberg, in 1927, stated that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa. This threw me for a loop back then because, at the time, I was thinking in linear terms. A linear thought process includes the absolute “truth” that time runs in only one direction. We are birthed into this world, we grow older, create other children along the way to propagate the species and then we die. That is our dash that ends up on our tombstone, separated by our birthday and our death day. Hopefully lots of great and wonderful things happen along the dash, but it’s a dash none the less. I know that doesn’t sound very inspiring. So, what’s the point if we are born into this mundane physical life, exist and then die? Why are we here in the first place? Well, thanks for asking! Dilbert has a few thoughts on this.

Dilbert Uncertainty Principle

The point, while living the dash, is to discover your gifts, your passion and then give it away to those who may be struggling to find theirs. Teach others to follow their bliss and this will be repaid in kind. The sooner, we as members of the human race, not this or that race, begin to raise our consciousness above the political divisiveness and spread love toward each other instead of perpetuating the us vs. them mindset, the sooner we will achieve spiritual enlightenment and realize that we are all of the same race, on the same side.


Change comes to those who follow the compass. And the only barometer you can gauge your life by is your heart. Expect change, embrace it and ride the rapids to a brighter future. Live not in the past, remember the lessons learned, but do not dwell upon them in remorse, for those experiences are absolutely required for you to travel toward higher levels of enlightenment.

This being week 24, I could not resist including a few words of wisdom from… Jack Bauer:

24 Motivation - Beliefs 24 Motivation - Gratitude

24 Motivation - Omniscience







In closing, I would like to congratulate everyone who has gone through, and survived, the Master Key program produced by Mark and Davene Januszewski & company. I will never forget this unique experience, nor will I ever stop pushing myself to become the person who I always wanted to be. I will win because this is my will. Flash back to 1977 (as well as my tie into the title of this post): I actually won a pair of 9th row tickets to see Styx in Chicago for their Grand Illusion tour. At the time I didn’t have a driver’s license, so I asked my big brother to join me, very cool concert. Everything is in place for a reason. You experience certain events at certain times in your life for a very specific reason. Listen to the words in the video as they relate to the Master Key experience. Go forth and master

Week 23 – Good Vibrations


, , , , , , , , ,

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day’s useless energy spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young

Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is grey and yellow white
But we decide which is right,
And which is an illusion.


This is a classic Moody Blues song first published in 1967. The poem above starts at the 5:50 mark. I especially like this video because of the cosmic graphics that were incorporated. So why do I love great music? Because it makes me feel good and puts me in a better mood. Now, with the Master Key experience nearly in the rearview mirror, I realize that we are in a better mood because we have successfully raised our personal vibratory frequency. So, what else can you do to raise your vibration? Well thanks for asking! While researching for the answers to life’s purpose I’ve run across many ways to increase your personal vibration. First and foremost: change your diet to an all natural, organic, whole food affair. If you must eat meat, as I do, then make sure you do that in moderation. Stay away from fast food and processed food at all costs because it’s not real food. Don’t believe me? It’s in your kids school lunches, take a look at this:

Pink Slime - USDA to purchase 7 million pounds Pink-Slime-How-Its-Made


Processed food can be identified as anything that is packaged. Granted, that’s a rather broad term, but anything that’s artificially created, produced or manufactured will probably contain a lot of chemicals and byproducts that are not healthy for humans. Buy your meat at a local butcher, not the supermarket. You can buy your fruit and veggies at the supermarket, but only if they provide local produce. Another way to raise your vibration is to get out into nature. Check out this video from my friend Ralph Smart from Infinite Waters for more info. Also check out my friend Teal, the Spiritual Catalyst, on how to raise your frequency. I have not researched the practice of Earthing much yet. It sounds very interesting, so I would suggest that you do your own research as well and check out this link to see what Dr. Mercola has to say about the subject. Time for another poem. This one is called “While Time Stands Still”.

Evening calls the sweet aroma of pinion wood drifts through the air as the magical feel of twilight descends like a mist… And just for a moment so brief you hardly notice time stops And in this moment like an old photo in a keepsake album we’re together with no worries no tears no aches no pains no obligations to attend to just the two of us together while time stands still. ~ Michael Traveler

This reminds me of the harmony that is created by the fusion of man made architecture and nature. Case in point: The beautiful works of Frank Lloyd Wright and his protégés. One in particular is in my neck of the wood here in southern Wisconsin. It’s called the House on the Rock. Another gem near me is Taliesin. Another piece of art can be found in Pennsylvania called Fallingwater.

Everything written here, as with most weeks, is for a reason. And that reason is all about creating good vibrations. Not just for those who read these words. Oh no my friends, this is self help in the making for me as well. Confession: at the start of almost every week during this program, I had no idea what I was going to write about. Seriously, not a clue. I watch the intro video and then the webinar, writing down a plethora of notes along the way, read the notes (mine and what was provided), “play cards” (MKMMA folks know what that refers to), read the words of Haanel and Mandino, see the shapes around the house, see my vision board(s) placed akin to landlines in my office, house and the dashboard of my car, and meditate. I meditate a min of 15-30 minutes at a time, twice a day, longer if I can spare it. All those things have a cumulative effect: They raise my vibration and my awareness of the Omnipotent. Not just in myself, but in everything around me.

Haanel states in 23.7:

If we recognize the Omnipotent power that is the source of all supply we will adjust our consciousness to this supply in such a way that it will constantly attract all that is necessary to itself and we shall find that the more we give the more we get. Giving in this sense implies service. The banker gives his money, the merchant gives his goods, the author gives his thought, the workman gives his skill; all have something to give, but the more they can give, the more they get, and the more they get the more they are enabled to give.

This passage reminds us to be of service to others. If you do this without expectations of being compensated, then it will indeed come back to you. But, if you pretend to be of service for selfish reasons, then you invite more emptiness and dishonesty into your life. Choose to spread good cheer and a helping hand to those who may be in need. Choose to create your own Dharma through positive affirmations daily.

Choose to spread Good Vibrations <><><>

Week 22a – Manifest your Bliss


, , , , , , ,

What if you could have access to infinite wisdom and knowledge? Not in some distant future or after you no longer draw breath upon this planet. What if you could have access to the omnipotent right here and now. There is a catch of course. The catch is that you must first believe that this simple truth is in fact true. If this is true, then why do so many people go through life reacting to situations instead of creating them? Why do people feel they need to be rescued from their lot in life instead of manifesting their own escape? Perhaps it’s because we were taught from an early age to be consumers and users instead of producers and thinkers. What if their was a larger agenda at work here? What if we all volunteered to be born into this world, with the express purpose of charting the unknown possibilities of our existence?

Why should we have to cope with all the negativities associated with our life without at least trying to manifest a better outcome for ourselves? Be the observer and discover your thru path. Give yourself permission to forgive yourself for being human. Give permission to stop being so hard on yourself. You will have everything your require to thrive, once you let go. Let go of what you ask? Let go of the negative aspects of your life. Replace self criticism with self respect. Replace self loathing and self trash talk with self love. Love may not be all you need, but it ranks right up there with oxygen.

What if all you have come to believe that is true is inaccurate or at the very least incomplete?

What if the universe within was just as infinite as the universe without?

What if we lived in a universe among countless other universes, a multiverse?

What if this multiverse contained an infinite number of dimensions?

What if all you see around you was first manifested in the minds of others?

What if you were the star of your own reality show, and you didn’t know it?


What if all the world’s a stage, and we are merely players in someone else’s game?

What if you could break out of the role you were led to play?

What if you could manifest your physical world through the power of thought?

What if you could find the answer within to manifest your own Bliss?

What if you have the power to change the course of your life?

What if you could manifest a brighter future, not just for you, but for all of humanity, on the wings of a Butterfly?

What if there was a mathematical formula for doing just that?

What if you could free yourself from the limitations of this reality?

What if you could have a real time conversation with your higher self?

What would happen if you ran into the preverbal wall of your reality?


What if you have the ability to converse with the Divine Source Energy or God?

What if everyone had this ability and they just don’t know it yet?

What if all this were true and the only thing holding you back from realizing it was your limited three dimensional belief system? What if everything you were taught to believe was predicated upon false or misunderstood assumptions?

Would you try to break through into a new reality of higher consciousness, or would you prefer to stay in your comfort zone and remain in your cage? We are not finite individuals, but spiritual members of an infinite whole.

What if thought is the true reality and the physical world was the illusion?


What if the box you have been living in all your life was Pandora’s Box?

What if you were the Hope trapped inside that box?

If there is no separation between the art and the artist, then there is no separation between the creator and it’s creation – the individual. We are part of the Divine Source Energy and it is part of us. The only separation is that which has been manufactured by our own fears. Expand your mind and entertain bigger thoughts. This will expand your consciousness and bring you one step closer to Enlightenment. Our world without is but a reflection of our world within. Become more than the sum of your parts. Become the person who you have always wanted to be, and then ask yourself: What would that person do next?

Breath is the Conduit

Manifest your Bliss and teach others to do the same <><><>


Week 22 – Got Bliss?


, , , , , ,

I was feeling a bit silly the other day so I created a Dr. Seuss Bliss rhyme:

Got Bliss - Dr Seuss

Bliss cannot be measured or quantified, nor can it be contained and sold. It must be found. Not by someone else and peddled to the masses. It must be found by you and you alone. Your journey is not mine, nor would I impose mine upon you. Our quest is the same yet different. It is the same in many ways as we work to raise our personal vibratory frequency in order to resonate, or become in harmony, with our higher self. It’s different because we are all unique physical manifestations of the Divine Source Energy and thus must travel contrasting paths toward spiritual enlightenment.

Barbara Marciniak QuoteSo, how does one travel the road toward enlightenment? Reading a book or watching a video can surely create a spark. But it’s up to you to turn that spark into a raging inferno. The fuel for that fire is thought. We are, currently in the physical realm, bound by the physical laws within this universe. We are also inexorably connected to a higher, spiritual realm. A realm of infinite wisdom and omnipotent power. Our thoughts, through the pineal gland, connect us to the higher vibration of our self whether we acknowledge it or not.

I’ve always had a childlike curiosity toward mathematics, science and spiritual mysteries embedded within everything around us. I don’t see auras or future events (yet). I do see numbers everywhere, metaphorically or course, not physically. I seem to be able to analyze and/or visualize many different scenarios or time lines simultaneously. Which makes my job as a mechanical design engineer that much easier. When asked, I tell people that “I bring inanimate objects to life”. My job is not easy by any means, nor is it without it’s difficulties. But I do love what I do none the less and will continue to create “life” from cold hard steel. Let’s consider “cold hard steel” for a second. Steel was manifested in the heart of a raging inferno of a steel mill. Someone must have created the formulas for the multitude of steel types. Steel didn’t just pour itself into existence ya know. Someone had to create the process for it to be brought into existence. Steel is the skeletal framework of every sky scraper in every city in the world. Wood and concrete were the building blocks of our world before steel. But before the first shovel of any construction site was turned over, a plan was first conceived, discussed, drawn up and approved by others. Step back a bit farther and you will begin to realize that everything you see and everything you experience in this physical life was indeed manifested, first by thought and then by deed!

Steel Mill

Back to the thought visualizations I perceive. Many of the time lines I see are very dark. Current political, economic and military misadventures foretell many potential long term disasters. There are a multitude of people, many in very prominent positions, working very hard to mislead and lie to the masses in order to create a false sense of power for themselves. Power is fleeting, truth is eternal. I refuse to dwell on the darkness. To dwell upon the darkness brings that which you dread most closer to you and in more abundance. Instead I wish to focus on the potential of the human race to transcend it’s physical limitations and truly embrace it’s spiritual greatness. Once that happens, the amateur dictators of our world, as well as the professionals, will have no choice but to stop their overt and deliberate destruction of our way of life and repent. The goal is to raise the vibratory frequency of the human race and make the entire planet free from elitest control. We are all cut from the same tapestry. The tapestry of life is indeed omnipresent. So, what exactly do you mean by omnipresent? Are you saying that we as humans are in all places at all times? No, we are not infinite but finite in this current physical realm. The Divine Source Energy is indeed omnipresent. We are connected to the omnipotent through thought. We are spiritual beings, not only because of thought, but because we can manifest reality from our thoughts! We are a reflection of the omnipotent. There is the link between the mundane and the omnipotent (that would be you). Continue to find your Bliss.

So I ask once again, Got Bliss? <><><>

Week 21 – The Little Acorn that Could


, , , ,

I’m sure you’ve heard the story of the little acorn that turned into a mighty oak tree. Or of the little engine that could. There are many other metaphoric tales in the same vein. I remember once upon a time when my Dad cut off a couple of branches from a weeping willow tree we had growing in our yard. He took those branches and planted them in two locations in the back yard. Those saplings grew into beautiful trees of their own. I used to prune them so they looked full from the outside, all the branches only inches from the ground all around. In reality, I trimmed those trees so they were hollow inside, creating a small sanctuary carved out of nature. It was a dome like structure, a living cathedral, once you stepped beyond the veil. The following is a story of another little acorn. The one that resides within you. The spark that manifested you yearns to grow to it’s full potential, the mighty oak tree. To become your higher self ~ in this physical life!


The old saying that you were once just a twinkle in your parents eyes certainly holds true. The “acorn” I’m referring to is the pineal gland, located deep within the human brain. This little acorn is also referred to as the third eye. Awaken your third eye and you have connected yourself to the Source Energy to which we are all reflections of and to which we all belong, as one. Here is an excerpt I found while researching this post.

The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. In Theosophy it is related to the pineal gland. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.

In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.

What if the teachings of the church about the Father, Son and Holy ghost are not only an explanation about God Almighty, but of ourselves as well? As I was writing this piece, the revelation occurred to me that perhaps this may in fact be true. What if the Father is God (The Divine Source Energy) and that the Son were us – you and me. And that the Holy Ghost was our higher self that resides on another plane of existence? It’s only a theory of course, but it rings true for me at least. You can find more information about this and other things related to my spiritual quest on my E3 page. I will be adding more content as I travel further down the road toward enlightenment. I suspect the road I’m currently on will take many twists and turns, far beyond week 26. It’s my life’s journey. It’s your life’s journey. The Master Key System reopened the door to this new reality. A door that I found many years ago due to my circumstances at the time. That door was not actually closed, but neglected and forgotten over time. I traveled a more difficult path for several years. That path included several levels of pain that I will not go into here. To dwell upon the negative will attract more negative energy toward you. Unfortunately, that worked rather well for a time. Like attracts like. That includes not only positive but negative energy. Choose to attract positive energy into your life as if today was your last. Choose to embrace love. Let it rain down upon you like tears from on high.


What I find fascinating about the pineal gland, and the acorn shape associated with it, is that it is embedded in our ancient culture, our religion and architecture throughout the world. Coincidence? Perhaps, maybe not. The photo below of Angkor Wat is from my Vision Board. The picture next to that, I’m told, was taken at the Vatican. I’m seeing acorns, how about you? The dual photo below of the Egyptian symbol for the Eye of Horus next to an actual sectional view of a human brain showing the pineal gland.

Do your own research. There is much to learn. In the mean time…

Week 20 – Unleash your Imagination


, , , , , , , ,

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind…


A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s a signpost up ahead: your next stop: The Master Keys! Ok, so maybe that’s not exactly how the intro to The Twilight Zone by Rod Serling went. While reading chapter 20 this week it became apparent that imagination would be the theme for my blog post. If we are bound by our imagination then we truly have no boundaries. A couple weeks ago I stated: “All creativity originates in the Universal. We perceive this as inspiration. Our thoughts create our reality and shines a light upon the path toward enlightenment.” What we are doing is attuning our personal vibratory frequency to that of the Universal. We are becoming in harmony with the Universal. By doing so we can more freely communicate with the Universal Mind through thought. I think therefore I AM. If I can think, I can unleash my imagination through inspiration. And if I can inspire others to do the same, then I have paid it forward. This is not a one time event. Your mission is to continue to inspire others throughout your lifetime.

Haanel states in 20:13:

This power of thought, if understood and correctly used, is the greatest labor-saving device ever dreamed of, but if not understood or improperly used, the result will in all probability be disastrous…

Thought without feeling is akin to the energizer bunny without batteries. Proper thought with positive feelings attached will attract positive results. Like attracts like, for good or bad. Which explains why a great many people on this planet are not happy with their lives. They need to be inspired. They need to be shown a way out of the rut they have found themselves in. They need to realize that they have the power within to change their current circumstances. It is not enough that we ourselves become enlightened. Nay, if we do not help others with the knowledge that we have gained, then we have wasted out time here. Why be first in line to get inside the store if you do not hold the door open for those who are less mobile? Why then do so many people not engage in random acts of kindness? I think it’s because they do not see or understand that greatness comes from within. They do not believe they have the capacity to manifest a brighter future. They have given up on the dream. Time is short, don’t waste another day feeling helpless.

Og Mandino states on page 75:

I will live this day as if it is my last. I have but one life and life is naught but a measurement of time. When I waste one I destroy the other. If I waste today I destroy the last page of my life. Therefore, each hour of this day I will cherish for it can never return.

Live each day as if it were your last. Some days you may feel that you’re on top of the world. Other days you sink with the Titanic. This is natural, identify and deal with every thought that may be helping or hurting you. Every thought has a certain frequency or vibration. Feelings of fear, anger, guilt, unworthiness and hurt feelings also have a vibration or energy. When we suppress these feelings we are suppressing our own energy. Thus dampening our spirit in the process. These “negative” feelings hurt us or help us. Use these tools for introspection. Take inventory of yourself and your actions, preferably during a meditation session. Allow your higher self to find the answer you seek. Tap into your personal cosmic energy or life force, which is part of the Divine Source, and discover your greatness. Discover your light, then pay it forward. Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say that I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one. I hope some day you’ll join us. And the world will live as one…


Through inspiration, imagination is unleashed.

Week 19 – Face Your Fear


, , , ,

Face you Fear, don’t Facebook it.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that bring total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it’s path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. – Frank Herbert, from the movie Dune (1984) – The Bene Gesserit Litany against Fear

Danger is real. Fear is a choice. Drain the power from that thought and fear will hold no water. To paraphrase Haanel: “Fear is a powerful form of thought. It can and will paralyze you if you give in to it. The way to overcome fear is to be conscious of your inner power. What is this mysterious vital force which we call power? We do not know…” It’s been 100 years since The Master Key System was published in 1912. I believe we are closer to understanding the true nature of this mysterious force. The origin of this power is the origin of all things: The Divine Source Energy. Although our three dimensional brain can only guess at it’s totality, we only need to understand ourselves. If we can do that, then we have understood a portion of the Universal. We are the physical manifestation of source energy. Many people call this source energy Yahweh, many others prefer to use the name God or Lord, still others use the name Jehovah or Universal Mind. Religion in general is the human interpretation of this Divine Source Energy. Since the actual source energy is several vibrational levels higher than what we can perceive in the third dimension, it stands to reason that we will not be 100% accurate when trying to understand it. There are as many interpretations of the Divine Source Energy as there are people inhabiting the planet today. I found an interesting explanation of why these different names are used to describe the same entity here.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

But how can we be powerful beyond measure? Surely this sounds like superhero Saturday afternoon stuff right? Consider this: I’m sure you would agree that because we are the offspring of our parents, we carry a piece of them with us always. I see this in my soon-to-be-seven-year-old daughter every day. Now, consider the scientific fact that many of the heavier atoms within our human body originated from a nova or supernova. How cool is that? Let’s explore this thought stream a bit farther. If we carry within us the DNA of our ancestors and our physical bodies are composed of the atoms and molecules of exploded stars, we could say that we are children of the universe. And what is the universe, but the child of God. We are the children of the Divine Source Energy. As such, we exhibit traits of the Universal. Haanel states that The Universal Mind is the creative principle intertwined with the physical, mental and spiritual worlds. We are related to this creative principle, and can have access to it, by the power of thought. By the power of thought we can raise our personal vibration and attain higher levels of enlightenment.

Every thought carries with it a certain vibrational signature or frequency. Thoughts of anger and resentment carry a low frequency. Thoughts of love and gratitude carry a much higher frequency. You may be wondering why I added the video above from the movie Dune when the words beforehand would have sufficed. Well, I really liked the movie and saw it in the theater when it first came out in 1984. It’s also the 30th anniversary of the movie. I would also like to leave you with this next clip from the same movie. It could possibly represent the manifestation of our power beyond measure in the not too distant future. This is purely speculation of course. But if we can actually harness the power of our thoughts in this manner, I pray that they may be used for the good of humanity and not destruction. There has been enough war, between nations, between religions, between friends and neighbors – enough!

Face your Fear my friends, and you shall overcome <><><>

Week 18 – Next Stop, Karma


, , , ,

So, I have a question for you. Would you rather have a cross to bear or an axe to grind? Ok, trick question. Monty Hall says the answer is behind… Door number three: The Master Key! Ok Johnny, tell the folks what they’ve won. The prizes include 1) Enlightenment, 2) Self Esteem and Confidence, 3) A Programmable Karma GPS System just to name a few. Lets see what we have behind door number one: A Cross to Bear. One definition stipulates: An unpleasant situation or responsibility that you must accept because you can’t change it. I reject that option because The Master Key System has proven to me at least that you can and will be able to change your situation with the proper mindset. Lets take a look behind door number two: An Axe to Grind. One definition I found states: To have a grievance with someone, especially where one feels the need to seek damaging retribution. Sounds like revenge to me. That option is also rejected.

Choose the Master Key path to enlightenment. Become the person who you’ve always wanted to be and then ask yourself: What would that new person do next? There is meaning and purpose behind your existence upon this world. We were not cast into this life without the power to fulfill our destiny. We have the ability to expand our mind and our horizons. We have the ability to question our existence and find meaning within that reality. It’s time to replace Fate with Freewill. That is the exploration that awaits you: Nothing less than charting the unknown possibilities of your existence.

To boldly go where no one has gone before.

And if you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Existential Mirror

Several times during my meditations back in the ’80’s, I discovered the “abyss”. This was not an astral projection event per se or an out of body experience. I would categorize it more as an inner exploration of my personal existence. Or, perhaps, the exploration of who I AM. My impression at the time was that I was standing at the precipice of a chasm or fissure. The darkness beyond was impenetrable. I also felt a very strong wind in my face, directly opposed to where I sought travel. Upon later reflection, I came to understand that this was more of a veil of the unknown, not a chasm at all. Perhaps at the time I was not ready to see beyond this barrier. Perhaps I was not enlightened enough, or my personal vibratory frequency was not high enough, to see past the fog of the unknown in order to absorb the knowledge beyond that awaits me. For more information on our kindred journey to find out who you are and why we are here, may I suggest some research into Existentialism: “A philosophical theory or approach that emphasizes the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent determining their own development through acts of the will.”

Today I find that Karma has been looking over my shoulder ever since I moved my family to this quaint little town in Wisconsin. I mean that literally. There is a semi-vacant building only a few blocks from our home. I noticed this place shortly after we moved here four years ago. The name on the wall jumped out at me when I first drove by. Which I suspect is the reason this particular name was chosen in the first place. The building used to house the Karma Coffee Manufacturing Company. I kid you not, the word KARMA is attached to the side of the factory.

33 years ago I started this spiritual journey. But because of certain life events, I had lost my way upon the path. Now, because of the Master Key System, I have found the path once again. Our means of travel to get to this point in time is different for each of us. You are not here by accident. You are here for a reason: to find your path, your Hero’s Journey. Last week I stated that “I vibrate, therefore I exist”. We can now add to that: I think, therefore I AM. Through thought we are connected to the Universal. Creativity originates in the Universal. We perceive this as inspiration. Our thoughts create our reality and shines a light upon the path toward enlightenment.

As for me, next stop, Karma <><><>
