When we first started in the master keys we did not know what was going to happen. Sometimes the exercises seemed trivial and sometimes the repetition seemed pointless. I can see now how important it is to lay a great foundation for the master keys program because NOW the rubber is starting to really meet the road. Not only is the Definite Major Purpose (DMP) becoming more and more the reality it is supposed to be, I am actually seeing the reality of the thought becoming a reality in well, physical reality…
When I first started to do my DMP, I was trying to follow instructions and I see now I was treating it more as a class assignment. I needed to make sure it came out to the satisfaction of the class leader. Then as time went on, I understood that I needed to make sure that the DMP was a real plan for my future, a plan I really wanted to believe was going to happen.
Now after 10 weeks of the master keys course, of reading the DMP out load daily, of studying the master keys material and working with Mark, Davene and my fellow MKMMAer’s, a process that SERIOUSLY has been really hard work,
(had I known how hard in the beginning, would I have committed to doing the course??not sure, glad I don’t have to really ponder that…) I have gone from telling myself I believe in my future reality to Believing my future reality. There is a big difference.
Not only is my DMP becoming more real for me every day, it is becoming more real for my wife Vicki. Lately she has taken a real interest in the DMP and started listening in. This morning she came over and started correcting the vision! Mostly it was about the house and yard.
First it was some modifications to the kitchen and the bathroom, I forgot some things and the bathtub I envisioned was not what she wanted. Then there was the front yard. What I have been imagining was not correct.
So we sat down together and went right through those parts of the DMP, correcting the designs and Vicki made some sketches. After we finished, my DMP had changed for the better, even more real.
I am so pleased this happened, I see now that Vicki now has a concrete belief in our future, my vision is so much more clear now. The more clarity, the stronger the belief.
This week our exercise has been to select a blank space on the wall, and mentally draw a black horizontal line about six inches long, and then add two vertical lines connecting with the horizontal line at either end and another horizontal line connecting with the two vertical lines to make a square. then draw a circle within the square; place a point in the center of the circle; and draw the point toward you about 10 inches; now you have a cone on a square base; then change it from black to white, then red, then yellow.
Exercises like this every week, starting simply, and gradually becoming more and more difficult each week, are like mental aerobics. Exercises that are strengthening and helping me grow and expand my mind giving me the right tools to build my future reality.
