If you have been following me, you probably know I am going through the Master Key Experience again for 2021. As a lifetime member, that is one of the big benefits, that we can join the program as many times as we want.
To be honest, last year, I went for it, knowing nothing of what I was getting into. It is a matter of opinion, and in my case, I found it very challenging. I was going at the same time through the reading and exercises of Standing Tall almost on my own. I attended a couple of webinars for it, but it seemed that I was off, so it added complexity. There was also another issue, and it was that I was working on the weekends, and that conflicted with the main MKE webinars. I attended as many as I could and caught up with the recorder webinars, therefore, I was almost always behind.
The most important point is that I have kept my discipline of reading daily as required, and my sit to quiet, relax and meditate. I am from Colombia, South America, so I consider myself as part of the Western culture, and we westerns do not do much mental work.
I am learning that mental labor is the hardest kind of labor that exists. I have been working on directing my mind, and controlling my thoughts, and it seems to be working. My awareness is not developing fast enough to appreciate my progress, but it is probably the noise of the environment.
There was a recent experience that has me enthusiastic. I had a technical problem with my computer. I have tinkered with my computer, added an exterior camera using an old smartphone, added a special lapel microphone with an audio interface. I did all that to present online more professionally. Two days ago, my microphone decided to quit, and I spent several hours working on some videos that while I was recording, the audio unexpectedly quit. I uninstalled some drivers and reinstalled them, I uninstalled some programs and reinstalled them, nothing was working.
I went to bed close to midnight very frustrated because I could not participate in a zoom conference I had registered for, but more importantly, I was thinking that I had to call computer support early in the morning. Before I fell asleep, I decided to change my mental attitude and relaxed, requested help from my subconscious mind, and imagined my problem easily solved in the morning.
It did work. I woke up, as usual, did my reading and meditation, and then worked on my computer making a couple of adjustments I thought about while I was sleeping. My audio worked, It has worked flawlessly since yesterday, I participated in a Toastmaster meeting via zoom (for convenience), and recorded two videos today.
This little victory has inspired and encouraged me to keep working and learning. I am requesting from my subconscious mind to help me improve the mood of people I meet with, that they open their hearts to my suggestions. I am also impressing in my mind that I love people and that anyone I meet, is the most important person in the world.
By helping and loving people, I should be able to advance them and myself.
