Week 4 – Just Do It.

There is a reason why the Alhambra, an Arab palace built 800 years ago in Granada, South of Spain, is the most visited place in Europe : its incredible and magic beauty. There are no words to describe the intense positive feelings which submerged me when I entered in the first room of the palace, and these feelings were continuously increasing as I progressed through it. After two hours of visit, my heart and soul were filled with peace and gratitude for those who were able to build such a legacy for the human kind. The Alhambra’s beauty is the result of millions of hours of patient work by inspired and skillfull stonecutters. I am sharing this in my blog this week because it contains a message of hope and perseverance to all the MKMMA students who are currently tortured by their old blueprint and think of abandoning their Hero ‘s Journey! They feel discouraged because their procrastination habits or any other bad habits they want to get rid of are still there after four weeks of earnest effort. Using the Alhambra as a metaphore, let’s imagine for a minute that it represents a human being who has reached the perfection in all planes of existence – like a perfectly cut diamond. Before the Alhambra could become that magnificient palace, a lot of training and experience had to be accumulated, and it is the same for each human being. Many years of procrastination habits (or any other bad habits) cannot reasonably be erased by a few minutes of daily exercise during 3 or 4 weeks. Exactly like the stone decorations of the Alhambra...

Week 3 – We Are All Musicians

I am currently in the middle of Spain, traveling to Malaga, to catch a few more heat and light of the sun. I am admiring the typical hilly and dry red landscape of that area of Spain. The road signs pointing to the cities of Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla are awakening the colorful music of Isaac Albeniz in my ears. A little miracle happens when I switch on the radio: a piano is playing a famous piece of another great Spanish composer, Enrique Granados. Coïncidence or synchronicity? This piece is one of the music partitions I am currently practicing on my guitar. The pianist is beautifully interpreting the partition, but on a very different way than the way I am learning to play it. And that is exactly reflecting the magic of life! Indeed, the partition written by the composer is the same for every musician: same notes, same rythms, same indications of intensity and color at each measure. So why does it sound differently for each musician who is playing the same piece of music? Because once the form, ie. the partition, is mastered and complied with, the musician has total freedom to express his/her own sensitivity and emotions. And since each musician is unique in essence, the piece of music sounds differently for each musician. Easy, isn’t it?! That should tell us a lot about freedom! Most people believe that freedom is being able to do everything according to their own rules. But that’s just wrong! The Universe (the Creator) has defined for us a set of principles which form the partition according to which we are...

Week 2: The Power of the Subconscious Mind

[this post was written on the 4th of October 2016] I write this blog in the passenger seat of our car driven by Françoise, my wife, on the way to Paris. Five days ago, she told me that her mother, once she turned 60, kept telling her that “60 was the age of the beginning of a multitude of little or bigger health problems.” This triggered my immediate and spontaneous answer : « see, that’s why you’ve got all these troubles since nearly three years now! » These words blown her away…because she just understood why she had struggled since 3 years with a series of increasingly annoying health issues she could not logically explain, but which were ruining her life. She KNEW for sure that she had found the true cause of her three difficult years, because three months earlier, she had just turned 63! The reason why I am sharing this story with you is because it helped me realize the power of the Mastermind and the infinite value of the MKE exercises. Let me explain. Just before leaving home for Paris this morning, I notice that Françoise had brought down my (very) heavy suitcase and put it in the car, all by herself…! When asking her how she did it, it was my turn to be blown away by her answer : «well, you know, all my health issues have vanished! » It’s when she thanked me for my words about her mother’s affirmation that I got the whole picture cristal clear in my mind: When her health issues really started to become annoying, Françoise wrote in her DMP a statement to retrieve the perfect health....
