Week 9 – Become the observer

‘Our words and our thoughts are what tie us to the reality we create for ourselves.’

A man cannot speak, but he judges himself. With his will, or against his will, he draws his portrait to the eye of his companions by every word. Every opinion reacts on him who utters it. It is a thread-ball thrown at a mark, but the other end remains in the thrower’s bag. Or, instead, it is a harpooned hurled at the whale, unwinding, as it flies, a coil of cord in the boat, and if the harpoon is not good, or not well thrown, it will go nigh to cut the steersman in twain, or to sink the boat.

This passage from Emerson’s law of ‘Compensation’ really made me gasp when I came to realise what it meant. The scene from the film Moby Dick flashed before my eyes when the captain throws his harpoon at the whale he has become obsessed with and eventually the whale takes the captain down with him and the crew. 

I thought about my past and how I had never guided my mind and even unwillingly entered into conversations and emotions which were dragging me down and tied me to something that would eventually become my demise. It did take me down. Suffering from a mini-stroke at just 39; I could not sink anymore. Who would look after my children? Those around me who I had allowed creating the emotional turmoil had to go and they did go and as a result, my children have blossomed and I have blossomed.  It took courage, lots of tears and years of feeling lonely but you know what, I would never go back even if the people I had allowed to cause that pain were my own family. Today I stand stronger because my thoughts are of Freedom and my words are about HappinessGiving and Receiving Joy and Abundance because I am genuinely Grateful for the journey I am on with the Master Key Experience.

The skills we are mastering and the power we are growing through an intense focus on our smart goals, our PPN’s and our visual maps, are just some of the tools in our kit. These have continued to help transform my outer world, where any thoughts or words that are detrimental to my purpose can now be deflected and have no chance whatsoever of tying me to a destination I know is not fitting to my greater good.

I am so proud of myself despite, working full-time I have committed myself to the Master Key System. The weeks are rolling past so quickly, and new habits are forming. Habits that will not let me sleep without them performed. I have become an observer of myself, and it’s somewhat liberating.

    That scene is in my mind as I read that part of Compensation! You are doing so awesome and I’m honored to be masterminding with you!

    Lovely thoughts Naila,
    So nice to read how much MKMMA means to you and what you have done with it. In the end it is our personal journey which matters and not somebody else’s.
    This is what I love about this course. It doesn’t tell you what to think but how.
