Week 20 He Is Spirit; He is Love

Isaiah 40

Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord?[c]
    Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him?
14 Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice?
    Does he need instruction about what is good?
Did someone teach him what is right
    or show him the path of justice?

15 No, for all the nations of the world
    are but a drop in the bucket.
They are nothing more
    than dust on the scales.
He picks up the whole earth
    as though it were a grain of sand.

To whom can you compare God?
    What image can you find to resemble him?
19 Can he be compared to an idol formed in a mold,
    overlaid with gold, and decorated with silver chains?

Featured Image -- 459
20 Or if people are too poor for that,
    they might at least choose wood that won’t decay
and a skilled craftsman
    to carve an image that won’t fall down!

21 Haven’t you heard? Don’t you understand?
    Are you deaf to the words of God—
the words he gave before the world began?
    Are you so ignorant?
22 God sits above the circle of the earth.
    The people below seem like grasshoppers to him!
He spreads out the heavens like a curtain
    and makes his tent from them.
23 He judges the great people of the world
    and brings them all to nothing.
24 They hardly get started, barely taking root,
    when he blows on them and they wither.
    The wind carries them off like chaff.

25 “To whom will you compare me?
    Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One.

26 Look up into the heavens.
    Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another,
    calling each by its name.
Because of his great power and incomparable strength,
    not a single one is missing.
27 O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
    O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
28 Have you never heard?
    Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
    No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

29 He gives power to the weak
    and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
    and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
    They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
    They will walk and not faint.

Now here

Week 19 i am ergo cogito ergo amo. Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve. Max Planck

I AM, the documentary movie is certainly inspiring, to say the least. i-am-19

The smiling face of Archbishop Tutu cannot even capture the depth of the love and joy captured in the movie; the contrasting desperation of daily toil, such as the stock exchange of intense competition AGAINST the OTHERS cannot even depict the loneliness of some of our fellow humans are experiencing as they are perceiving OTHERS AS THEIR ENEMIES. i-am-15

Director Tom Shadyac, after a life changing accident, of all by bicycle, travels around the globe and interviews brilliant minds to uncover what life is about. Some of the answers gained were based in Noetics, a branch of metaphysical philosophy concerned with the study of mind as well as intellect and the inter-connectedness of all the living. i-am-10

It is being posited that a breath at one point of the earth affects another; Einstein is quoted as stating that an electron at the beginning of a lengthy distance is changing an electron at the other end, whatever that would constitute.

At first, i have to admit, i saw this being a New-Age propelled endeavor; however, holding my opinion back and just watching, i was taken to the lofty heights of Howard Zinn, confirming that “every day little acts build up into a movement.” (free quote) The Dalai Lama buttresses, that CRITITAL THINKING followed by ACTION is a world changer; that LOVE IS A FORCE.

The OLD BOOK says “Love your Enemies, Bless them that curse you; do good to them that hurt you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matt. 5:44-45 

 

Here it gets personal; what I do, in terms of love, kindness, especially to enemies, is affecting the whole. BAM. We are part of a universe where the seemingly smallest unctions influence the next person and on all. At the same time, each is unique and precious to the CREATOR OF ALL, THE ONE WHO CAME TO LIVE HERE ON THIS PLANET AND DIE FOR ALL.

As the one and only Archbishop Tutu renders, with his heart warming smile,

GOD SAYS: I AM HAVE NOBODY ELSE EXCEPT YOU.

I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES

THEREFORE: THROW KINDNESS AROUND LIKE CONFETTI!!!!!

Week 18: cosmic soup, its forming but ….“As he thinks within himself, so he is” (Proverbs 23:7, NASB).

Below has been simmering in my mind all week and i have been erasing and writing and erasing; i leave it here to brew and form. This blog needs some more time to shape up. Thank you for your patience!!!

1 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer. 29:11 NKJV

“Cogito Ergo Sum” Descartes deducted after a life spent researching both scientifically as well as philosophically. Likewise, for Haanel and a lot of fine, profound thinkers, THOUGHT is really the connector from the spiritual to the material. “14. Thought is the invisible link by which the individual comes into communication with the Universal, the finite with the Infinite, the seen with the Unseen. Thought is the magic by which the human is transformed into a being who thinks and knows and feels and acts. 15. As the proper apparatus has enabled the eye to discover worlds without number millions of miles away, so, with the mountains

All this is very complex and yet simple. May I take this to another level, without rendering disrespect to anyone or any material. The Old Book says that

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:11

Death and life are in the [a]power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. Prov. 18:21

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Rom. 12:2

Our mind includes all of our cognitive capacities:  thoughts, ideas, images, and beliefs. Our feelings are closely intertwined with our thoughts. Other key terms that relate to our minds include: envision, study, remember, reason, and believe.

Our mind is bigger than our brain; it’s more than matter, as it also encompasses experience.  Our minds can interact with visible and invisible reality. When we believe something it’s not just professing something as the “right answer”, but its knowing things as a reality, as actually true.

The heart (will or spirit) works off of the mind; we access our heart and then direct it (make choices) by focusing our thoughts and inclining our feelings (thoughts and feelings are both part of the mind in Dallas Willard’s model). All the aspects of human nature are most readily influenced by what we do with our thoughts.

 

 

week 17 a TO BE CONTINUED…..UNTIED

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.  Max Planck

43 When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 Out came the man who had been dead, his hands and feet tightly wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] cloth turtle-and-giraffewrapped around his face. Jesus said to them, “Unwrap him and release him.” John 11:43-44 (AMP)

Are we the bound or the free? Whereas this may be taken as a philosophical question, the implications can be life or death. Life here and life there. Life abundantly or life lived to arrive safely at death. The brilliant MKMMA, in cooperation with the Holy Ghost, is one of the best experiences of un-tying. When we were exposed to life; to change; to a hero’s calling, we are still finding ourselves fighting ourselves; others and happenstances; we are still struggling with grave clothes around us. It takes a lot of LOVE COMBINATIONS; red circles; blue squares; Franklin Make-overs; DMPs and PPNs; Og’s scrolls; guides; sits and confessions, such as I AM’S AND DO IT NOW’S; face to face with pelf and SELF in the mirror to untie a person; me the person to generate enough movement for progression and empowerment to freedom. to be continued…….

I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES.

 

Week 17 – Reaching Out & Gratitude

Thank you, Natalie, for giving me an idea for taking the initiative at work!!! Brilliantly portrayed and delivered.

Natalie Master Key

I took the next step in moving my DMP forward this week. I attended my first business network meeting. I know a couple of women in this group, so it was a little less scary than going to a network event where you know nobody.

We had a chance to mingle before and after the meeting. There were two of us that were new to this group. We each had a chance to provide a little information about ourselves and what we were hoping to gain from the group. Most of the group members are holistic practitioners; there were a couple of individuals in MLM.

I am not in MLM or a practitioner. I am student of life. I am carving a new path. Listening to my heart versus to those who think they know what is best for me based on their cement Buddha.

The part of the meeting…

Week 17: GIVING PERMISSION

When I am not sure which aspects I may be missing in defining a word, i embark on a journey to such as: Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com/):; CiteSeerx (); GetCITED (http://www.getcited.org/); ioline International (http://www.bioline.org.br/); to gain a better perspective of what the word connotes. Deontic logic examines PERMISSION via three modals;  R  for required,  P for permitted and F for forbidden. See:
Rq == F (-q).  An act is required  if and only if its denial is forbidden
F(q) == -P(q)  an act is forbidden if it is not permitted
Pq  ==  -Fq  &  -R(-q)   An act is permitted if it is not forbidden and its denial is not required. Not surprisingly, ERIC, the educational research authority, places permission solely into the world of school education; the world where everything is forbidden which has not explicitly allowed; permission has to be sought for most acts, other than breathing, the latter within reason. (LOL) We are conditioned to do what we must and seek permission for both, what we desire or must do. For vacation time, which we earned, we must seek permission to take it. In homeland security, we argue, Rq ==F (-q); we do what is required and permit ourselves to do it as its denial is forbidden, as it could mean our obliteration, ultimately. In MKMMA we are operating on an even higher level; we Pq == -Fq, in other words, we are learning to permit ourselves —–beyond accepting the societal permission to do, as not forbidden and as its denial is not required—–to engage in something that under “normal circumstances” we would need someone to permit us, such as via a sermon or motivational speech. We are officially permitting us to DO IT NOW; to step out of the shadows; to catapult ourselves to RELAX, of all; to think of what we wish to manifest. As Haanel posits, we —permit ourselves— to concentrate on courage, on abundance; on health, and ignoring the opposite thereof. Dignum phrases permission as giving choice. This is what permission ultimately constitutes: choice. We permit ourselves to understand choices we face and to steer into the direction we wish to head. Only if we understand our freedom of choice, are we truly free to permit ourselves. 

My happy Place

 

These are stairs which are leading to one of my happy places; home. “Yet, within me burns a flame which has been passed from generation uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am and I will and am!!!! ” OG

This is Bagram AB and here my heart beat beats higher: 24/7 prayerline for troops in place. Yes there are numbers Servicemembers can call from anywhere in the world; however, in many cases its challenging. This prayerline is affording them a simple 5 to 6 digit code to be transferred in seconds to powerhouses of prayer and praise; further family members can be conferenced in and participate in the communication with their creator.

Excited women, children and men are welcoming me/us as we are bringing business opportunities that empower them to be independent from those who have taken advantage of them, including abused them. I know that the notion of abuse carries  different meanings in different cultures; notwithstanding, individuals who are treated like or worse than animals have not been allotted the value their carry in the eyes of their creator.

ghana-airport.jpg

Its being HOME, doing what I am created to do, not showing off good works; as children, we do what moves us and what directs us via the loving care of our parents. As adults, we make a lot of detours and decisions but ultimately are not happy as long as we have not found this inner knowing that we are where we belong and endeavoring what propels us. My happy place is the place where all, family, friends and strangers can meet and rest and be who they are, at their best. A pilot will not feel fulfilled if they are not flying from time to time; air and sky is calling them. A social worker/pastor/therapist  will not be in their element when not helping others in some fashion. A swimmer wants to spend time with the water and fish. My real place is to inspire others to use their talents; not as a coach would but as a fellow human connecting them with other fellow humans to glorify HIM who smiles on all creatures and loves them so uniquely as each is the most precious pearl to HIM. As I was conceived in love and brought forth with a purpose, so are billions of others. As I am “an architect of greatness, so are Billions and their vision lies within their souls;” we all peer beyond our veils and mists of doubt and pierce the walls of unborn time.” (Haanel) “What we visualize already exits in the spiritual world!”

I always keep my promises!

 

Week 14- Never Giving up

Master Key Experience

Over the break my family and I watched Rudy.  What an amazing and  inspirational movie! Rudy’s passion, drive and unshakable belief in himself puts most people to shame.  Even his fellow teammates were complaining that he was making them look bad because of his dedication.  He always put 120% into everything he did.

Since he was a child, his family had been telling him that his dreams of going to Notre Dame and playing football for them was ridiculous and that it would never happen.  All the negativity and dismissal of his dream in life never got to him.  He fought, and fought to make his dream come true.

We can all learn something from Rudy.  When times get tough, or when no one believes in us, we need to put blinders on and continue to plow forward with all of our might, and most importantly always believe in ourselves.

Week 15: Lower Your Buckets!!!!

The story Master Mark conveyed depicting the lost and thirsty sailors —-which is the prelude video for session 15—-is leaving an important imprint on my mind. For one, it alludes to the necessities and riches which are already here and available; from another vantage point, it illustrates our preconceptions and limitations to perceive a new reality. We tend to believe what we see and or feel which is the greatest obstacle in the quest of achieving what we cannot see or feel. A sick person, naturally, will focus on their symptoms and obtain temporary relief by relating their condition to others. A person in need, let’s say of financial sustenance, will, naturally, agree and support statements of others about how hard and unfair conditions are; how restrictive their life is due to lack. That very practice is the very mechanism which will keep that person in the state of  need or even catapult them to greater need. Haanel aptly promulgates that difficulties, “inhar-monies”, and obstacles indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require. This sounds like a slap in the face; comparable to the thirst stricken Sailors who were told to lower their buckets; of all into that salty ocean water, which would kill them….faster. What may Haanel mean with his statement? He most certainly was inspired by The WORD, the ultimate source of ALL. The Sailors had to let go of their “oceanic” worldview and accept their new logistics. In biblical terms, the Sailors had to speak to that mountain, the ocean, to generate a miracle of clean water. Now this sounds crazy, to the natural mind. Anything to move us from our current condition to greatness; to achievement of our DMPs; to fulfillment of our destiny, calls for means other than the natural world could sustain.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. 1 COR 2:14, ESV. Yet how does the spiritual reality become physically accessible? For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength. 1 COR 1:25, ESV; via words. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. PRO 18:21 ESV. As it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. ROM 4:17 ESV. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us; John 1:1; 14a ESV.  God urges us to say, not what we have, but what we want and aspire to. Simple and yet seemingly impossible. The MKMMA is a brilliant venue to learn the skills of calling that what is not to be. I AM GRATEFUL; WHOLE; PERFECT; STRONG; POWERFUL; LOVING; HARMONIOUS; HAPPY. What else does need to be done? Something!!! Actions of the mouth and actions, such as lowering the buckets. The proverbial buckets, symbols of harvesting instruments, are words, again; again and again until —-seemingly naturally—-to no great surprise, all pieces fall into place and life giving water is available. In-har-monies become monies, lol. “In-harms” become insignificant and not harmful at all; rather furnishing the desired life-giving results. Yet, as very well orchestrated by MKMMA, words have to be specific. Very specific, as Haanel buttresses:  Accuracy in building words and sentences is the highest form of architecture in civilization and is a passport to success.  God’s method of operandi is diametrically opposed to our sense-dominated world. “The whole thing, then, is a matter of faith on man’s part and generosity on God’s. He gives the security of his own promise to all men who can be called “children of Abraham”, i.e. both those who have lived in faith by the Law, and those who have exhibited a faith like that of Abraham. To whichever group we belong, Abraham is in a real sense our father, as the scripture says: ‘I have made you a father of many nations’. This faith is valid because of the existence of God himself, who can make the dead live, and speak his Word to those who are yet unborn.” ROM 4:17 Phillips. Children of Abraham, children of faith, co-creators with God, us; we function by speaking that which is not as though it were. We speak; we hear us speak; we influence our thoughts; we persist and we change the world. I always keep my promises.  cropped-cropped-img_182011.jpgTBD
