Week 14 – A new Life Style for 2017

“Your world without will be a reflexion of your world within” (The Master Key System, 14.30) “Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view” (George Mathew Adams) These two statements are profound. They hold the power to change the life of anyone who take a few minutes every day to think of what they mean specifically for them, and who seek to apply what they discovered in their daily life. This by itself can be considered as a Life Style, and those who adopt this life style create happiness for them and the people they love. Therefore, if it is not yet done, I wish you to fall in love with this Life Style, and to live a healthy, prosperous, harmonious and joyful life in...

Week 13 : The Big Screen and the Little Square

We only see a very little part of all the amazing things which are going on in our being. As a comparison, suppose that all what’s going on in your being was displayed on a big TV or computer screen, and that what you can see is just a little square of 10 x 10 pixels out of that big screen. Only the information within that “little square” is perceived by the conscious mind. When something arises in your “little square”, it is always a consequence of all what is happening in the rest of your screen. There is thus a good news and a bad news: the bad news is that, if you don’t know how to master the things which happen on your big screen, you are like a cork on the ocean…you see events and circumstances scrolling in your “little square” without any power to influence them on one way or another, whatever your efforts to control them. One of my friends went recently to an ordinary medical check up, and discovered sundenly that she was developing a severe disease…just before the check up, she thought she was in good health! Her real health status had just appeared in her “little square”, but the illness was developing since quite a long time in the other parts of her “big screen”. Does this mean we should be afraid of what’s happening outside of our perception and expect to have the sky falling on our head at any moment? No, this is not necessary nor suitable because the good news is that it is possible to acquire the mastery of...

Week 12 – Addiction can be good too

I love to do the reading of my DMP and the Og’s Greatest Salesman. I love it even so much after four years of practice, that I became addicted to it! For example, if I pass the door of my bedroom before my readings at night, I got an automatic thought which reminds me “Hey, your readings!”, and I go back to catch my DMP and my Og’s book… How did it happen? Easy: when I was in my first year of MKMMA, each time I found myself in bed without having done my evening readings, I forced myself to get out of bed and to do my readings, then going to bed again… After a few months of this treatment, my subconscious mind was drilled to trigger the automatic thought at the entrance of my bedroom. The same happened for the sit… I love so much to be and feel myself in that state of stillness, doing the Master Key exercise or just observing my breathing, that I do it at least twice a day, and usually for much longer than 15 minutes. Most of the time, I actually have to give myself the order to stop the sit, otherwise I could stay in for most of the day! Of course, if you just started the MKMMA, you may still struggle to keep the sit into your daily habits. That’s normal if you were not already familiar with that kind of practice. It takes some time to learn how to quiet the flow of the uncontrolled thoughts flowing through the mind. But once you become able to reduce...

Week 11 – “Tomorrow, it will be better”

What is the biggest challenge of most MKMMA members during their Hero’s Journey? I got the answer to this question once again during our first tribe call, yesterday. It is the capacity to create the daily discipline of executing the sit, the readings and all the exercises as required, whatever the circumstances of the day. Everybody knows that, as long as the discipline to do an unpleasant or uncomfortable thing is not successfully installed, the risk to stop doing it (another way to say “quitting”) is high. So, the next question is: what could we do to eventually install such a discipline in our daily life, to an extend that it becomes a habit comparable to taking our meals or brushing our teeth every day? Of course, there are many different answers to this question, and one of the major purposes of the whole MKMMA training is to allow its members to find their own personal way. In case you are still looking for yours, let me share with you the answer I found for myself and which continues to serve me every day of my life: My answer has the form of a question that I am asking to myself when my Old Blueprint tries to fool me:  “is there anything more vital to do right now than my sit, my readings and my exercises?” So far, I never answered “Yes” yet to that question. It could be that, at this stage of your reading, your Old Blueprint is whispering you “Why would you consider these boring exercises as vital? They are just a waste of time compared to all...

Week 10 – Trust Your Guide!

Last summer, I was enjoying climbing some beautiful mountains in the French Alps with my guide, when I lived a special experience which has become today one of my most valuable lessons in life. For our second mountain, my guide and me had left the refuge at 4:30am and we were slowly walking a very steep slope since about 45 minutes when our head lights hit a plate of snow. I got ready to take my ice cleats in my rugsag when my guide said: “we can cross safely without it, it will just be like walking normally in the snow.” And without further delay, he stepped in the snow. I had never yet walked on a steep icy snow plate in the dark without ice cleats, so I felt my throat slightly tightening, but I courageously stepped in the snow too. After three steps, I realized that it wasn’t just a normal walk in the snow, at least for me, and my legs started to shake, while my body curled up forwards, desperately clinging to my two walking sticks strongly stuck in the icy snow. In the same time, I had to fight against the paralyzing vision of me slipping down the snow plate and then falling down the 300 or 400 meters we had already climbed since the refuge. I could not understand why my guide kept calmly repeating that it would be easier for me to stand up and walk normally – although that is exactly what he was doing while talking to me. It took me more than 15 minutes to reach the other side...
