Week 24 Spring Is Here

It seems very fitting that this week marks the completion of “The Masterkey Experience” Or is it the beginning. Spring arrived on March 21, 4 days ago. Spring offers a renewal to life and living, something everyone relishes. This 6 month journey has opened  my eyes to the possibilities that await. The journey of self discovery is the ultimate trip of a lifetime. I am blessed and grateful to have found this opportunity, to discover new worlds of possibility. To embark on my own; Heroes Journey, is the best gift I could ever give myself.


This course teaches about service to others, not power over others. To serve without expectation of outcome. This  has released me from the chains of counting on others. At the end of each day, I must look myself in the eye and know I have done everything possible to move towards my goals. I must love myself for who I am and embrace “Me”, my “I” and use the process that was given to every human being. That is the power of thought.


Thinking my way to the success, I choose, not what society deems as success. It is my choice to choose, and through the action of being quiet and thinking in silence, my creative “I” will unfold the future before me. So, each day I sit and think about the day ahead and create my day. Yes, I create my day, and take my weather with me. My weather is my emotions. By controlling my emotions, I control and create my outcome.


Becoming an observer of everything around me has enabled me to control my day. If I wish to be happy, I simply observe others being happy. Persistence, the same, simply observe and be persistent. All of Benjamin Franklin s traits, become you when you observe those traits in others. Because you recognize the trait, you know you also have it.


On this weeks video, it is stated; if one thing equals something, and another equals the same something that by default the two things are equal. In other words, If you observe kindness to another person, and observe another kindness to another person, that they are equal. By mathematical default, you are also equal to them. You are the same as they are.

If you recognize success in others and they are Rich in the seven areas of life, then you are like them also. This means you can be Rich, just like they are. This is so incredible. It is a break through in thinking for me. If I recognize it, I can be it. WooooHooooo


Life is a journey after all, a “Heroes Journey”. A Journey of self discovery, seeking out the truth about life and the universe. So, It really isn’t the end of the Master Key Experience, It’s the beginning of a whole new “Heroes Journey”. I can’t wait to see where it takes me.


Week 23 Master of Emotions

Today I will be master of my emotions.

And how will I master my emotions so that every day is a happy day, and a productive one? I will learn the secret of the ages: Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.


If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel Ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will remember past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.

Today I will be master of my emotions.

Each and every day is a new day, with new challenges unforeseen. We bring our weather with us in the moods we feel. The Law of Substitution is handy to use when feelings we don’t want come our way.


I will become master of these emotions, I will become great!

You will too!


Week 22A The Science of Getting Rich

“The Science of Getting Rich”, written by Wallace D. Wattles is a very easy read. You can download it for free off the internet. It is also very easy to listen to on audio. Mark Posted it on our Week 22A video. Don’t miss out. Again, its easy to listen too. You will find that it reinforces everything we have learned so far in MKMMA. Its also on YouTube. See Video at bottom of page.

TSOGR “The Science of Getting Rich”.

WD Wattles

“WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No man can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money; for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.” TSOGR

We all need to be Rich. Easier said then done it would seem. This book has the secrets necessary to do just that, Be Rich. It all begins with forming a clear mental Image of what is desired. It links in very tightly with the thinking in The Master Keys. Principles endure.

What is Rich? “The man who owns all he wants for the living of all the life he is capable of living is rich.”TSOGR  That sounds real good to me.

“There are three motives for which we live; we live for the body, we live for the mind, we live for the soul.” TSOGR  These motives are all connected; they are one. Take away any one and life ceases. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be rich in body, mind and soul. That’s what the Creator wants of us, he lives through us, is in us all. The Creator has unlimited wealth.

“Man cannot live fully in body without good food, comfortable clothing, and warm shelter; and without freedom from excessive toil. Rest and recreation are also necessary to his physical life.” To do these things requires Money. We need to be Rich to enjoy all that is available to us through our Creator. TSOGR

“THERE is a Science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches; once these laws are learned and obeyed by any man, he will get rich with mathematical certainty.” TSOGR

This is done by “Forming a Clear Mental Picture” of what we desire, and then “Giving Thanks and showing Gratitude as if we have already received the blessing.”

“There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the inter spaces of the universe. A thought, in this substance, Produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.” TSOGR

What we think about grows! Every day I am forming a mental image of what I desire, Healthy Bees, Money in the bank, more and more customers and give Thanks with Gratitude for the bounty I HAVE RECEIVED.

Week 22 Miracles, Yes or No!

I believe everything is a miracle.

einstein quote 3

This week has been an incredible journey of discovery for me.

I learned how to turn Fear, Hurt Feelings, Anger, Guilt and Feelings of Unworthiness into positive forces, to move me too success. I was stumped to be honest on this complex statement, but I stuck with it, like a dog on stink. I figured it out.

I learned this week that Fear carries with it intense concentration and focus. As an example; we spent the week out in our bee yards inspecting hives. Why? Because of Fear. Fearing my bees may run out of food after a long and hard winter.  Fear of loosing a huge investment in time and money. This forced me to concentrate on the task, to focus and get the job done. Fear eliminates all distractions. Fear converts thoughts to action. It most certainly did for me.

. fear

I learned that Hurt Feelings that I have experienced in my life acknowledge that I care. That I am a caring person who only wants the best.  I learned to use the energy in a positive way to overcome and succeed. I use the Law of Substitution . The mind cannot hold two thoughts at the same time. I use a good thought to overcome my hurt feelings. “I’ll show em thinking to succeed. I’ll show em how to keep bees with organic practices and succeed. I Feel the Feeling of a successful Apiary. ” I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”

I learned that Anger has huge energy. When channeled in the wrong way can be destructive. When channeled in a positive way can propel you over vast distances to success. I was angry 3 years ago when my bees where not performing as they should. I was angry at the broken promises of Bee Supply Companies that said; If you do this you will have success with your bees. I was angry at the bold faced lies of Corporations that said their pesticides were not harmful too bees. So, I turned this anger towards changing my management practices, becoming an organic beekeeper and following my gut instinct. Not following someone who was only looking out for his pocket book.


Sometimes I make mistakes. I feel guilty about it. I didn’t know why, I just do. Then it was explained that guilt means you know what to do.  It is validation that my spiritual side is working. That I only need to embrace my “I” and do it. Just release my passion for beekeeping and make a difference. Guilt and remorse go together, if you don’t have those emotions you may be doing the course from jail. Psychopaths lack this quality. Does this remind you of any “Politicians” you know.

Unworthiness is another feeling that slows us down. Can I do it? Can I be successful? It’s not about can I do it, it’s about time to do it. We are all worthy of everything we desire from life as long is it doesn’t take someone Else’s Good. We just can’t have it all at once. This is so huge a break through. I  just need to be patient and it will all come my way. One thing at a time is the secret to overcoming unworthiness. Succeed once, and deserve, succeed twice and deserve it.  I deserve it.

This week has been full of miracles for me. Everyday I see the wonder of nature all around me. Below is the Miracle of Survival for one of my Hundreds of bee hives. I am so thankful.

I give thanks to the “Creator” for this miracle.



Do You? I do.

Week 21 The Beginning of Clarity

“Connecting The Dots. Do you remember that? I think it was before school even started. There we were, drawing lines from number to number, letter to letter.  Never knowing what would appear.


It was so much fun. Each time we looked for the image before we drew the lines in. Each time we got better at it. We yearned for the secret to the puzzle. We sought out adventure, we looked for the excitement of accomplishment.  We loved it. To be a child again.

My journey of discovery through “The Master Key System” has been a, “Connect the Dots” experience. Instead of connecting the dots to draw a toy truck, I am connecting the dots to reveal the “Future Me”, My “Authentic Self”.

“When you begin to perceive that the essence of the Universal is within yourself — is you — you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power; it is the fuel which fires the imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration; which gives vitality to thought; which enables you to connect with all the invisible forces of the Universe. It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully”. Haanel. The Master Key System.

Over the last 21 weeks, I have learned so much about the world and myself. Most of it was fairly easy to comprehend. Some if it has been a mind stretcher. The above paragraph is in essence the whole course rolled into one paragraph. This has been the biggest stretch towards understanding and enlightenment. A mind stretcher, which I am learning to accept a little more each and every day.


Feelings of fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness, and hurt feelings are what we feel, when we don’t accept the above. That God is “All in All”. That the Universal “Is YOU”. The only difference is degree.

All we have to do is accept It, and those feelings vanish. Poof.

The Dots are now connected. I am “Nature’s Greatest Miracle”, Thanks.


Week 20 The Hedgehog and the Fox

‘The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing’.

The Fox has a scattered conscience.


One of the Fables goes like this.

A fox and a hedgehog were strolling through a country path.  Periodically, they were threatened by hungry wolves.  The fox —being blessed with smarts, speed and agility — would lead packs of wolves on a wild chase through the fields, up and down trees, and over hill and dale. Eventually the fox would return to the path, breathless but having lost the wolves, and continue walking. The hedgehog, being endowed with a coat of spikes, simply hunkered down on its haunches when menaced by the wolves and fended them off without moving. When they gave up, he would return to his stroll unperturbed.

The Hedgehog has a focused Conscience.


Those who built the good-to-great companies were, to one degree or another, hedgehogs. They used their hedgehog nature to drive toward what we came to call a Hedgehog Concept for their companies. Those who led the comparison companies tended to be foxes, never gaining the clarifying advantage of a Hedgehog Concept, being instead scattered, diffused, and inconsistent.


The Full Description; Click Here By Jim Collins. Good to Great, Chapter 5


Yes, I admit it, I’m a Fox. I do believe this is the hardest thing, I have ever admitted too.  Today is a  huge day for me. This realization has literally opened the windows for me. Fresh air is blowing in. Change is in the air, and it thrills me.

Beekeeping is what I love doing. Focusing on this “One thing” is actually liberating. Now I know it is OK to focus on just one thing. No more running around in circles trying to be everything to everyone. It was simply exhausting doing this. Some days I would sit and think about the long list of things to do and be stumped on where to even start. I feel relieved, to be able to cut back and focus on being really good at one thing, Beekeeping. I am Liberated. WoooHooo.

Thank you for this break through Mark.  Clarity at last. It is going to be an incredible year.




Week 19 That Pesky Old Blue Print

Thank you to everyone. All the kindness that was sent my way this week is very much appreciated by myself and family on Mom’s passing. She is at peace now. A life well lived. The pouring out of kindness from our community was over whelming at times. Hundreds of marks on my Franklin score card for sure.

Thank you

During the last few weeks, it has been hard, hard to keep up with the course. Hard to keep up with life in general. The knowledge that the end was at hand for Mom, and that things would change forever, was even scary.  The feeling of being helpless, not being able to do a thing for her, was overwhelming at times.

That blasted old blue print was even at it. Kicking at me when I was down. ( Who do you think you’re fooling) ( Why not give it up) ( No one will say anything) ( Your Mom Died, they will understand). All these thoughts seemed to be there, Pesky little thoughts.

“NO” I said to myself. You will keep on keeping on. You are still here, you have a mission to complete. You have a “Hero’s Journey” to complete. You will complete It. How could I stop, with so much to celebrate. My daughter’s were very much involved in Mom’s funeral, I am so proud of them. How could I let them down, when they arose to such splendor in the celebration of Mom’s life. How could I let my Mom down, when she lived her whole life to build me up.

I carry On, I  persist. I do my best. I  excel. I “Power Pose” and share It.

arms raised

“I will Fake It” till I become it.

“I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy!” I will “concentrate” on the Person I intend to become.







Week 18 Who Will You Sell Today?

I hope that this post makes sense as you read it, I’m operating on 4 hrs of sleep.

We truly are the greatest salesmen in the world, no reference to the book. We sell ourselves all the time; time to get up, time to go to work, time to pay some bills. Yes, we sell ourselves on doing these tasks. If we didn’t, they wouldn’t get done. We are all incredible salesmen. Unfortunately, we sell ourselves on the wrong things at times too. It’s time to dream bigger.

Here is a top drawer, class act, salesman. Mr. Haney from Green Acres at work. Enjoy!

Selling ourselves on ourselves is the toughest sale. When our lives are influenced by family, friends and society, we can find ourselves lending an ear where we shouldn’t.  The end result all to often,  is that we start living a life that someone else designed for us. Not that this was intentional, I’m just saying that it is easy to end up living a life we didn’t plan on.

This fact alone can result in a lot of unhappiness. We just don’t know why that is! We end up going through the motions of life not knowing where we are going. The trap has been sprung. Some will look for the escape hatch. Some will accept the trap as home.

But then,  something happens. A yearning in our heart starts to pull at us. We start searching for more, more of something. We don’t know what, but search we do. Our hearts are pulling us in a new direction. A pull to learning, to seeking out, to adventure.

Some of us will ignore the signal, and say that is crazy. Why would I give up on what I have? I’ve got it pretty good. (compared to who). Pretty good is no where I want to live. But the call will keep coming back, again and again and again. Some will eventually answer the call, and others will answer right away. Some won’t, I think you know the kind….they would rather sit around complaining about no money, and no time while they solve a case or two every weekend.


That’s not the case with you though, is it. You said yes. I want to do something more, I want to achieve more. The phone rang and you answered the call to adventure. You didn’t know where it would lead, you still answered didn’t you. You are becoming a Hero in your life. WoooooHoo.

When I was young, I remember my mom crying. She wished many times her life had been different. She told me so. I guess she felt trapped. She saw no way to change things as they were. She accepted things and carried on. This influenced me of course. Perhaps this is where my habit of always looking over the fence to see what was greener came from. I didn’t want to be trapped either. I have always explored life. Looking for more.

I wonder today, what dreams did my mom have?  What dreams will she carry to her grave unfulfilled? What dreams do you have that are unfulfilled? What are you going to carry to your grave?

Last evening, I was with my mom. She is in a nursing home, and not well. She is 94 yrs young. The greatest women in my life is slowly slipping away. My mom will pass today. God bless her.

Please pray for her.

P.S. Stop selling yourself short, go for your dreams, give yourself permission and do it. Just do it. Before it’s to late. Sell Yourself.


Week 17a Passive Observers or Powerful Creators

Do you remember, remember as a child, staring up at the skies at night.  The beauty of stars in the heavens, the moon on the horizon, the shadows of sunset in the west. Do you remember? Observers we were, noticing life around us, as it unfolded before us. Observers we were. We were taught the we were only observers, and that our feelings had no effect on the world.


During the last few weeks of our “Masterkey Study” we have been learning about Benjamin Franklin, and the “Franklin Makeover”. We have been learning to observe the people around us and watch for specific things like; enthusiasm, kindness, discipline, self control, courage, persistence, special knowledge, imagination, decisiveness, organization, taking initiative, pleasing personality, and seeing God in others.

By doing these observations, I have come to realize these acts are all around us all the time. It is only when we specifically look for a trait, that we see it. It is our awareness that makes them visible. It also teaches us that we have those qualities, because we recognize them.

We did a specific test with Kindness.  We watched for kindness, observed kindness but also gave kindness to others. When possible,  we did it without them knowing it. In giving kindness to others we were creating a wave of kindness.  We were creating kindness that would create a wave around us we wouldn’t even see.

We were expressing a language, a hidden language that few are aware of. This language has been in hiding in Western Culture for a very long time. As a young man, I was told or taught by example that men don’t talk this language. If you did talk this language, it was in private.

What is this language, the language that has all but disappeared in our society. It is the language of “Feelings”. Men don’t show their feelings, period. Even women in western society have hidden feelings, you can’t have feeling in the “Corporate World”. Feelings are perceived as  a weakness, a soft place to be taken advantage of.

There is a saying; When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. This happened to me this week. At some level I have been struggling with this “feeling stuff”. You know, attaching feelings to our DMP. Attaching feelings to our “Blueprint Builder”, etc. It all has something to do with the programming I received growing up around feeling.

Sometimes things happen, and we don’t know why! or How! Tuesday morning I was doing my emails, Twitter, Facebook, etc. to start my day. Only emails were open on my computers. I went to make a coffee, came back and I could here a video playing. How it started I have no idea. I clicked on the tab, Gregg Braden was speaking at a conference.  I didn’t know him or anything about him. The first few sentences he said caught my attention. I watched the whole thing, 3 hrs long, twice. To try and absorb it all.  Below is a short version of what I watched. Enjoy.

As I listened to Gregg, I finally got it. That “Feeling” is the prayer.  That “Feeling as if it is done” changes our universe, changes our world, changes our lives, changes everything.

If we pray for money, the universe assumes we already have it.  We must “Feel the Feeling” of having money, or health or whatever we desire. Only then will the universe mirror it to us it.The universe is a mirror. It mirrors back to us what we desire. We must attach emotions to clean the mirror, to get what we desire.

Here are some examples;

Feeling the Feelings of an early spring, a warm spring, happy Honeybees.

Feeling the feelings of standing on the shore of Kauai, knee deep in salt water, sand between my toes, the trade winds blowing in you hair. The smell of flowers in the air.

Feeling  the feelings of standing in the lineup at the bank, I have a $200,000.00 dollar cheque in my hand.

Feeling the Feelings of making the last payment on my  home.

Feeling the feelings of having the Teller at the bank tell me , you have too much money in your account, Paul. Would you like to speak to an investment counselor? I say NO.

Feeling the Feelings of Liberty, Autonomy, Legacy, Spiritual, True health, Creative Expression, Helping others, In my life.

It is by “Feeling the Feelings” of our desires that we become “Powerful Creators”. Yes we become creators, not observers.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”.

Marianne Williamson

Become the creator in your life,  in your family. Become the hero you know you are.

Week 17 I Am Nature’s Greatest Miracle

          I am “Nature’s Greatest Miracle”.

“I am not on this earth by chance, I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy”.

Mt Logan

Mt. Logan, Yukon Territory, Canada

Growing up on the farm, with nature all around me, I was always aware that miracles do

exist in this world. Whether is was delivering a set of Triplets from one of our dairy cows,

( I think I was maybe 13 yrs old), or watching a beautiful field of wheat growing and swaying

in the wind. The birth of baby kittens, or our dogs chasing squirrels up a tree. There were

amazing things happening all the time. The thing is, I took it all for granted. I never looked

at these events as miracles, they were everyday things that just happened.

There was always too much to do, and racing with the weather made it hard to appreciate

what truly is important in life. It seemed that it would last forever, that things would always be

this way.

But things change, times change and we get older. As the years have raced by, I have gained a

greater appreciation for all my memories of growing up on the farm. I realize just how many

miracles I was part of. Now I see how important my role was in the creation of many miracles.




Over the years, I helped  hundreds of cows with difficult deliveries. Bringing into the world

countless newborn calves. I now realize that I was performing miracles all along. That without

me, many calves would not have made it into this world.  I even recall helping a neighbor out

with one of his cows.  He thought he was going to loose both cow and calf. He didn’t have

money to pay a Veterinarian to help. So I did what I knew I could do. They both survived.

Where am I going with this? You see, I never thought of Myself as a Miracle. That never crossed

my mind. In fact, I thought very little of myself.  A sad place to be, indeed.

Thanks to the “Master key Experience”, I know I am a miracle. That I was born a miracle

and given incredible gifts that no one else on the planet has. I know there is a calling for me

to follow, and the best is yet to come. There are more miracles waiting for me, somewhere.
