Week 24: Truth

The “truth”, it has been said of old ,will make us free, free from lack and limitation and free from sorrow and  worry. However, the truth comes in many forms, scientific truths, religious truths, legal truths, psychological truths, political truths and philosophical truths,just to name some of the major domains in which truth claims are made. The Truth that is fundamental and the source of all truths is true thought. All outward manifestation is the byproduct of inner thought. The world without is the reflection of the world within. This us the thought with which Haanel concludes the Master Key as he returns to where he began.

It has never been more transparently true then in our present time of exponential technological revolution that whatever we imagine can become our everyday reality in the near future. Every day what was once science fiction is becoming science fact. This means we will soon be living in a world of abundance for all. Nanotechnology, 3-D printing, robotics, artificial intelligence and bio-engineering are all converging toward what Ray Kurzweil has called the Singularity. The Singularity comes when the acceleration of artificial intelligence surpasses human understanding and creates super human intelligence and this intelligence solves humanities greatest problems.

The greatest gift that humans possess is the ability to think Truth.    Has not Truth itself  always already been the Singularity?  This means that our minds have always already been connected to supreme mind. So through technological evolution we are only beginning to realize our own power through our technological creations. We can become enhanced humans and become the product of our products. As enhanced our   consciousness becomes aligned and convergent with supreme consciousness and this consciousness  will someday fill the cosmos illuminating its original source. Is this not the true meaning and destiny of our being?

Peace be the journey

Week 23: Service

We learn in this week’s lesson that success depends upon service. We get what we give. Great entrepreneurs have a passion for serving others. By helping others get what they want we get what we want. Life is fast-moving and change is happening at an exponential rate. In order to stay ahead of the curve we need to be creators,not followers. Followers will be disrupted by creators. It is okay however to follow  or track creators or wealth generators. My DMP is to found the Vanguard investment club which tracks wealth generators.  By better understanding the characteristics of current exponential entrepreneurs I expect to be able to identify the up-and-coming ones who will lead the next disruptive organizations and serve the pressing needs of the rising billions.  In his latest book Bold Peter Diamandis gives us the crucial mental strategies that bold innovators and entrepreneurs use to build billion dollar exponential organizations. This list is very much aligned with what Haanel teachers in chapter 23  of the Master Key system and what we are learning in the MKMMA.  Insight into opportunities leads to value creation and success. As Peter puts it, the world’s greatest problems are the entrepreneur’s greatest opportunities.

Week 22A: Self Reliance

Self Reliance is Emerson’s essay on the profound importance of belief in self. His essay struck many responsive cords in me and resonated with Haanel’s teaching and what we have learned in the MKMMA.  Self-help books do not teach self-reliance. They give us mantras to repeat that come from others, from without. However wise these pithy sayings may be, in the end of the day we must think our own thoughts from within. The key to hearing our own thoughts is to quiet our mind through silence. Only then can we hear ourselves think. Mostly our thoughts are drowned out by the chatter coming from the sea of sameness. Heidegger calls this “idle chatter” which is always inauthentic.  “They speak” is a copy of a copy of a copy and recycles empty sayings.  In order to animate genuine thinking we must catch our sudden flashes of brilliance that come to us like lightning but quickly disappear.  Only when we are on our own path do we become aware of what we really think. We must be courageous enough to follow our own path and allow our thinking to guide us. Our thoughts will then be original, bold and powerful. They will have the power to manifest our life of purpose.

Week 22: Health and Disease

Haanel introduces us to a system of mental therapeutics in chapter 22 of the Master Key System. How does it work? In 20.5 he states, “it is through the law of vibration that the mind exercises control over the body”. Understanding that the mind and body are related through vibrational thought is a profound intuitive leap forward into areas that are still not yet fully understood by current scientific research.  The question raised by this bold leap of intuition is how  quantum physics integrates with cellular biology and neuro-cognitive science. The week force in physics calibrates to the rate of our mental activity as registered by brainwave function. It is the only physical force that is operating on the same scale as brainwave function.  Is it possible that our thought seeds translate into brainwave frequencies or “music” that sets the tone of our moods? These thought seeds result in health or disease. I believe this theory will be validated by scientific research in the not-too-distant future. It is really only a matter of time before the full story of  how mental vibrations create healthy or unhealthy moods is told.

Og in scroll 6  teaches that key to health and well-being  is the control of our moods. This is easier said than done.  Only through the work of the mastermind alliance can we learn to influence our subby so that it marches in tune with our desire for health and wellness.

Week 21: Thinking Big!

For me, “thinking big” means thinking bold. Bold is the title of a new book by Peter Diamandis. In it, he characterizes a new kind of organization, the exponential organization.  These organizations are the brainchildren of big thinkers. They are aspirational  in that they are taking on the big problems to solve, The solutions they will come up with will affect the lives for the better of billions of people.  The biggest problems Peter argues are our biggest opportunities.

My big idea is my DMP, the founding of the Vanguard Investment Club.  The club will track emerging exponential organizations with a view to picking the best of the best, the ones most likely to become billion dollar companies in a short amount of time.  Identifying the most promising big ideas and the most credible teams who are driving these ideas into becoming reality will enable investors to pick the right companies and help them incubate with additional funds and resources. Picking the exponential organizations that will succeed will yield great financial rewards. It will also give satisfaction to the investors who back the “winners” at an early stage of their development.

The seed money necessary to start the VIG, which involves gathering a group of advisers ( a mastermind team) will come from my success in building my primary network marketing company. I expect that many key investor members of the club will be successful network marketers.

Week 20: The Breath of Life

We know there is a zero energy field that permeates the universe. It is constantly vibrating or breathing the breath of life. This energy field is nothing other than life force.  All great spiritual traditions teach that right breathing or breathing in the breath of life or spiritual energy is the basis for health, wholesome and happiness. Haanel follows these teachings but makes them more scientific   and comprehensible. He teaches that there is a simple principle that results in all external effects. It is that the world within determines the world without.  Positive thought and energy bring positive outcomes, negative thinking and energy brings negative outcomes.

Our work is to concentrate on positive thought and energy. By a full breathing in of the breath of life we breathe in inspiration. We are then able to breathe out our intention and attention.  In this way we accumulate the power to manifest our desire, our DMP or our dream life of purpose and.  Our challenge in the MKMMA is to harness the subconscious so that we make each breath a breath that is full positive energy and full of the breath of life. We do this when we become conspiratorial, we breath together  as one and co-inspire one another. In our mastermind alliance we become aligned with good vibes and a positive flow of energy. Good breathing, breathing the breath of life together in a mastermind alliance is the basis of all positive psychology.

Week 19: Power

Haanel states in 19.18 of the Master Key “… all things represent certain forms and degrees of power.” Reality is power, the power to exist through time. All things want to continue to exist and they must exert power or energy to continue to exist. Energy means to be at work (en-ergon) and is the basis of power. It is the dynamic principal of life force.

How do we harness power and energy, express energy, exude energy and through an abundant release of energy, generate abundance for our self and others? We do it through thought.  Our thought must be powerful, constructive and positive in order for us to realize our personal power. By accumulating and expressing our personal power we overcome fears and obstacles. Through personal power we attain our goals.

How do we become a powerhouse of personal power? We do this through thought. All advancements in human history have been” thought up”. Technology is thought in practice. We are only at the beginning of technological evolution which is bringing an exponential explosion of new benefits to man and things. These technologies will increase longevity and enhance the well-being of everyone and everything.

I’ve been thinking a lot about thought lately in terms of the emergence of human consciousness. Human consciousness is both familiar and a mystery. How consciousness works in terms of the brain’s relationship to the mind is complicated.

Haanel looks at it this way. He argues that the power of light to travel is the same power that thought has to become conscious.

Powerful thought produces the technologies that in turn produce abundant living .The geniuses of the past and of those of tomorrow are the powerhouse of thought, energy and innovation. My DMP is to track the new genius/ entrepreneurs as they bring the new aspirational companies of the future into the world. These companies will solve the current global problems since the greatest problems present the greatest opportunities for bold entrepreneurs.

Week 18: Growth

Haanel in 18.5  says, “the whole world is on the eve of a new consciousness, a new power and a new realization within  the self .”This is even truer today than when it was first written. Today, we know that mind and energy are intertwined at the quantum level and that there is a deep interplay between thought and things.  All thing are subject to the law of growth.  Through growth we become who we are meant to be. Growth is reciprocal. We receive as we give.  Affluence within brings about affluence without.

How does growth work?  By putting  our heart and soul into our work we give out the vibrations that attract the necessary and sufficient conditions to realize our major transformative purpose. Our mental power increases through interest and attention, each reinforces and expands the other in an ever increasing spiral.

My intention and attention is more and more focused on growing my primary business This involves growing and becoming a network marketing professional through the go90grow course. I am also focused on my DMP which involves the setting up of the Vanguard Investment Club.  As I bring more and more intention and attention to exponential organizations I  am finding that I am attracting more people who are becoming key players in the VIC think tank or  mastermind alliance.  I am tracking  the critical moments of success  of  companies on the way to becoming  exponential organizations. In time I will have a clear roadmap for success for growing a company exponentially and this will enable our club to pick the winners of the future and to help them grow with the benefit of club seed capital.

Week 18: Purpose

A plan of action in order to manifest my definite major purpose has only now just emerged. Peter Diamandis, along with the launch of his new book Bold has launched Abundance 360 membership.  My plan is to engage in a stage fashion with the material that Peter will be making available to the members of the 360 Abundance.  I will be getting sneak previews of the moon shot proposals for new exponential startup companies. Building relationships with the leaders of startup exponential companies of the future will put me in an excellent position to detect the emerging players in this arena. . All the companies we will be watching are aspirational. Their purpose is to massively transform the world and move us toward a world of abundance for all.

I can envision selecting one startup company of the month to be featured in a newsletter. I will develop a ratting protocol to rank companies on a watch list.

This entire sector of exponential organizations is virtually invisible to the average investor. The Vanguard Investment Club will become the source for tracking this sector with a view to determining future valuation.  As we get better at assessing these startups investors will follow our suggestions to fund the most worthy.  Once we have validated our picks or predictions of success with a number of featured companies our club will be ready to become a fill fledged investment club/fund.

Week 17: Concentration

Concentration is not what we usually think we mean by the term, such as paying attention.  Haanel in 17.1 of the Master Key teaches that concentration is far more than that; it is rather the transmutation of thoughts into practical values. For deep concentration to work it must be fueled by desire and supplemented by intuition. Through the production of highly refined mental vibrations concentration manifests the materials necessary to create the circumstances we desire to fulfill our purpose.

How does it do this? By going directly to the things themselves which Haanel says  is the spirit of the thing. In this way we take hold of the basics of a thing.  The basics of a thing is how the thing works.

Let me give an example. When I was writing a proposal for a study in London program I had taken hold of the basic principles of study in London.  I took the best elements of existing programs and constructed a program that would give students the best possible experience for the most economical price. Having visioned and written my proposal it was accepted and a few years later became manifest. It ran as I had envisioned.

I am now reinvigorating my concentration in order to realize my desire with the support of the MKMMA.  My DMP has a massively transformative purpose to create the Vanguard Investment Club which is an exponential organization incubator.
