I am so far behind on my blogs, it feels I will never catch up. When things get of track they really get of track and it is hard to get back on. But I am back now, hopefully with no bumps this time. But I guess that is life. We all run into speed bumps. How we respond to the speed bumps in our journey through life matters more than the speed bump themselves. While I have not posted a blog in weeks, I have experienced some amazing results from this program. I have taken on a new challenge and I know I up for it. My success will depend on me staying on track and not letting the speed bumps get in the way.
Lesson 15 of the Master Key Experience is very profound. There is so much going on with this lesson. Lesson 15 emphasis the opportunities that nature creates. To begin Hannal talks about the metamorphosis of aphids at a moment when all may seem bleak. These tiny wingless insects will grow temporary wings, so they can leave a dead rose bush that has no more nutrients and find the nutrients they need somewhere else. This is a lesson we all need to learn. We must learn when what we are doing no longer allows us to grow and prosper, we need to move on. We need to find another source of sustenance.
The idea behind lesson 15 is that the laws we live under operates to our advantage; that all our experiences are for our benefits and the strength we gain from these experiences is directly proportionate to the efforts we put forth to overcome them.
Lesson 15 is also about growth. Growth is about letting go of the old so that we can embrace the new. Which is in keeping with the concept of giving and receiving. The more we give the more we get. Hanaal says in 15-5, “We cannot obtain what we lack if we tenaciously cling to what we have. We are able to consciously control our conditions as we come to sense the purpose of what we attract and are able to extract from each experience only what we require for our further growth. Our ability to do this determines the degree of harmony or happiness we attain.”
When I think about that paragraph, I think of about clearing away the clutter or pruning. We have to give up the things that will stunt our growth. For me this paragraph also means we create the life we live. That our experiences shape us, and we are stronger as a result.
One of my favorite concepts of lesson 15 is the notion of words as the first manifestation of thought. Thought is all powerful and shapes our life. Therefore, if words are the first manifestation of thought we need to be careful about the words we use. If we want create abundance in our life, our thought must be constructive and harmonious. If words are the manifestation of thought, then it makes sense that our words must be constructive and harmonious as well. Hanaal states, words are thoughts which makes them invincible. In paragraph 15-23 Hanaal describes the importance of words, “The beauty of the word consists in the beauty of the thought; the power of the word consists in the power of the thought, and the power of the thought consists in its vitality…” for me words bring my thoughts to life. When I can express my thoughts in words, my thoughts are more than an idea or concept. They have reached full realization and can even be put into action.
This lesson really stuck with me. Weeks after reading the lesson, I am still struck by it.
