Week 9 – I Am

note – This blog was first posted last year at this time in the Master Key class. I enjoyed seeing my growth to that point and loved looking at how far I have travelled. If you’re here for the first time all my blogs are below. Enjoy watching the journey. – Walter


I thoroughly believe all the right people will be reading this. Why? We know “I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy.”

How can we create a better world? By living that exquisite affirmation!

The power of the Law of Kharma kicks in when we take the next step…the step that really comes first.

From 9-25 of the Master Keys, “Whatever you desire for yourself, affirm it for others and it will help you both.” Simply put, cause and effect.

Now I understand that the cause must be visualized before it can be seen. Being blessed with an incredible person in my life, (disguised as an 8-year-old), I witness full-fledged, unfiltered and unencumbered visualization daily. His unbridled belief in his visions are a lesson in leadership of our world within.JUST TRY TO STOP ME

We all have these childlike qualities within us. Where are they hiding? They’ve been buried by family, friends, playmates, teachers, etc. The list is endless. All, for the most part, loving, caring, well-intentioned though misguided people in our lives from day one.

When I return to that child-like place in my life where all was mine; not if or maybe but WHEN, I am once again in harmony with the Source from which we all come. That being the case,” I can be what I will to be.” superFor since we are one with the Universe we are then omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. Thus everything is possible!

I don’t need anyone’s permission or approval to do the right thing… always.

 I greet this day with love in my heart and I succeed.



Week 8 – That Imagination thing, again.

Week 8 – That Imagination thing, again.lurex

“The imagination gathers up the material by which the Mind weaves the fabric in which your futures is to be clothed.” – Haanel

I am mesmerized by this thought. How more descriptive can we get?

what the futureWe have learned and now know that all we are is thoughts…and what becomes of them.  When imagining the value of each thread in that fabric we are weaving I am humbled.

If we have ever purchased a garment with a thread or stitch of lesser quality then the quality of the entire piece is brought into a poor light. By neglecting the smallest segment of our being we jeopardize the entire project…our lives.

So, as we imagine so we become.SELF-MADE-MILLIONAIRE-T-Shirts

“We are all self-made, but only the successful will admit it.”Earl Nightingale




86,400 Seconds in 24 hours. Each one is an opportunity to grow in some way. Grow vibrantly or grow obsolete.  We choose where our imagination takes us. I could blog for the next year and just scratch the surface of the mountain wise quotes to the theme.

I understand the enormous depth of meaning from a legendary naval man;popeye-the-sailor-3

I yam what I yam!” – Popeye the sailor man.

Now the next step is; who I shall become?

“I am a human being, not a human doing. Don’t equate your self-worth with how well you do things in life. You aren’t what you do. If you are what you do, then when you don’t…you aren’t.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer

Whoa! I love that last sentence. “If you are what you do, then when you don’t…you aren’t.”

Talk about feeling insignificant! Only when you let the doing outweigh the being will you risk this.

being human I choose to BE! How about you?

Week 6 – Where the work is done.

Where the work is done.

Two statements from Part 6 of the Master Key kept drawing me back to read and ponder;

Intro) To be in tune with eternal truth we must possess poise and harmony within. In order to receivetransmitter intelligence the receiver must first be in tune with the transmitter.

6-11) …every beauty to which you respond must have its corresponding outline in your brain before you can appreciate it.

fall beatyjpg

I see the critical first step is to tune in to the right station. The only way to accomplish this is to become completely focused and AWARE of what surrounds us. Every form of energy emits a frequency. As we bring our thoughts into focus and keep in harmony with the Natural Laws we are able to “tune in” to the Universal.

This brings us to the second statement.

We’ve all heard the phrase “I’ll know it when I see it.” How is this possible? To know anything there needs to be some point of reference.

In last week’s blog I wrote of the ability of the human mind to log our existence from the moment of conscious awareness, iGvb Therefore, we have these reference points that the Subby has access to in billionths of a second.

We simply must form the habit of awareness. And awareness comes from focus and focus is the direct result of silence. Here’s the really cool part! Silence is the cornerstone of awareness!

So, here is where the work is done. When I form this habit I complete the natural chain. As I become more aware, a wonderful thing happens. Some call it the Vortex. I call it living a “right” life. Even if it is just starting with a few “right” moments, these moments can’t be undone.


As the habit strengthens so does the Vortex.

Gotta love good habits!

Week – 5 The Power of Words

Power of words

As I move through the reading of The Master Keys by Haanel I start to observe many things within me to which I have not paid attention before. It may be that not offering/having opinions for the week has cleared my mind. This seems plausible since the law of Dual Thought is in play at all times and if I was using so much of my time to formulate and offer my opinions I was missing the true essence of what this magnificent Universe has to offer.

babyheadphoesjpgOne such observation I had this week is putting together how the subconscious mind creates clarity or confusion based on what the outside world is presenting. We know that our subconscious is a perfect repository of all that we have experienced from the moment we became aware of our surroundings back in the womb.

Social proof abounds of children growing up and enjoying music that their mothers listened to while pregnant.  Even after the birth mother is no longer listening to that particular music the child still is drawn to that music.

This sudden clarity brought on another seemingly unrelated event. Here is a phrase that most itysof have heard in some form many times. “How many times do I have to tell you….?” Or “I’ve told you (fill in the blank) times…” or “Everybody knows…”.  These simply are softer, subtler versions of “I told you so.”

I thought of these instances as to how our subconscious mind must respond. Being that  in our memory is everything we have been exposed to and experienced yet for some unexplained reason Subby can’t locate that particular file even though it has been told this “many times”. What’s a confused mind do? Nothing! And, to add to the mess, while searching everywhere now we’ve missed the information again!  This can become extremely uncomfortable for most individuals.

I just thought this was a cute use of words.


I have started a personal quest to eliminate such mind numbing phrases where they could cause discomfort or at least an anxious feeling. I find making people feel relaxed and appreciated gets more accomplished in a shorter time. Doesn’t everyone deserve that?

We wield great power over each other and in turn the Universe within the words we use and don’t use.wpid-friends

Respect that power. Use it wisely. Use it to weave an incredible life.

Week 4 – Fear…Imagine that!

Fear…Imagine that!

We all have fears. Some are silly and conquerable others daunting and debilitating. Regardless of the fear 99% are unfounded and also, 100% are in the mind.

I have found, from personal observation, fear instills procrastination and yet as we put things off two things occur simultaneously; the thing not only remains but it actually grows with every passing minute. And so the vicious circle grows. We create a negative, self-fulfilling prophecy.

How is this insanity stopped?



Just as in the movie industry, the magic happens when the director calls “Action”.

Think now of what has to happen before that magic word can go to work. There is an army of skilled professionals behind the scenes prepared and preparing the set, script, wardrobe and so on.

Look at your life. You are the producer, writer and director. The Universe is infinite potentiality; prepared, preparing and waiting patiently for you to tell yourself “Action!”Screenplay

What does your script look like?  Your Dharma, your definite major purpose is waiting for you to call out. The concept of fear being a by-product of procrastination is a given. So is the fact that action is the mortal enemy of procrastination. Since we control all thoughts and all fear is an effect of thought then the solution is staring at us.

Thoughts are controlled by the mind and powerful emotion energizes our thoughts into unwavering belief that is faith we are then moved to actions that bring us the results we desire.fear3fear

To fight fear, act. To increase fear – wait, put off postpone.

David Joseph Schwartz


If we go into action we have a chance. If we don’t…there’s no chance.

Week 3 – Do we recreate or create?

But first:old-dictionary_15

Middle English recreacion, from Anglo-French, from Latin recreation-, recreatio restoration to health, from recreare to create anew, restore, refresh, from re- + creare to create

First Known Use: 15th century

1:  to bring into existence <God created the heaven and the earth — Genesis 1:1(Authorized Version)>

2a :  to invest with a new form, office, or rank <was created a lieutenant>

b :  to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior <her arrival created a terrible fuss> <create new jobs>

3:  cause, occasion <famine creates high food prices>

4a :  to produce through imaginative skill <create a painting>

b :  design <creates dresses>

intransitive verb :  to make or bring into existence something new


Create > Re-create> Recreation


We are learning through the Master Key Experience that our thoughts when combined with emotion (intense feelings) bring about unwavering belief (faith).


These propel us into actions that CREATE the results we intend.


While reading all the various definitions of these two related words I began to ponder the scope of what they mean and the infinite potential of what each of us possesses.

Most of us mortals may think that we must acquire some special skill to be creators. Yet, since we are created in His image, as the Old testament tells us, or are part of the Universal Source as the Master Keys from Haanel and many other writers of “ New Thought”, explain, we create our reality constantly.moondancer


The world without is created by the world within.


My simple question is more of a conundrum. If create means to cause something into existence can we cause it into existence…again?  Is re-creation an oxymoron?


Looking at the very first entry create means “to bring into existence.” I can understand this meaning clearly.


But looking further down

“to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior”


It gets better ;

“to produce through imaginative skill”

And my favourite (drum roll, please)

“to make or bring into existence something new”


We create every moment into existence; every minute, every hour, every day, every lifetime.


To paraphrase John C. Maxwell, “Make each moment a masterpiece”time

That is your life!

Now…on to the next moment!


Are we on to something with this Master Key Experience?

Week 2 – Who’s running this asylum?


Without realizing it I have been student of the mind for many years. I’m not claiming to be an honours graduate student but a student nonetheless.

In a former life I earned my keep as musician/writer. As such I needed to understand how the mind works so that I could create a pleasing and commercial combination of music and lyrics. In the music industry they are called “hooks”. That critical part of a piece that grabs you holds you and keeps you coming back for more

emotional hooks



At that time this student only knew that a successful tune required this component. I did not understand the elegant mechanics of the subconscious mind that were involved. I believe that Charles Haanel could have been the most successful song writer of all time had he applied himself to this craft.




As I am learning today from the Master Key Experience communication is the life blood of the Universal Mind; communication through thoughts, words, actions, feelings and living in general. Because all communication starts with a thought and we now know that thoughts can be controlled who or what is running this show?

Mike Dooley says “Thoughts become things…Choose the good ones”

If we allow our mind to wander our lives become chaos. Corral our thoughts and focus on the right things and our results are extraordinary!

So I go back to the opening. Who, or what, is running your facility? Are you allowing your AutumnLeavesBlowingthoughts to wander and become an autumn leaf in the November winds? Or are you taking back control from the world without and creating your within first?

Not sure? It’s all a matter of cause and effect. Effects being the results of cause (thoughts) are the exact measure of the thoughts you have. Period. Not happy with what you have or where you are in life? The good news and bad news is: These are the direct results of your previous thoughts and actions.

As George Zalucki says, “Want to be Happy? Think happier thoughts!”

Either take control or give it away. It is simply our choice.

Thank you for your visit. Please share your ‘good’ thoughts.




Week 1 – Experience vs Principles

Week 1 – Experience vs Principles    

We’ve all heard many times that experience is the best teacher.

106305722_teacher_293408cWell, upon close examination, one begins to see that with the infinite variations the universe presents. This statement, as it stands, is more false than true.




What is learned from experience is based on the pertinence and quality of the event itself.

Thus the value gained is subjective at best. The lesson learned is only as good as the method and the student.

Much of what we glean from an experience may not even be what was intended therefore what we realize is even though we were on track…we were on the wrong track!

Principles, on the other hand, are not subjective. They simply are based on the laws of Nature. There is only one way to employ principles…either we do or we don’t.

When we live by principles we live in harmony with the Universal Mind and then all is possible.

From the Scroll marked I from Og Mandino “…experience is comparable to fashion; an action that proved successful today will be unworkable an impractical tomorrow.

Technology is a great example of this. Look at the telegraph. Was it successful? Yes! Today it is unworkable and impractical. ie video conferencing.teleg mobile-android

But the basic principle, the need and ability to communicate with our fellow beings endures.

On that, please feel free to communicate and share your thoughts. Blessings.

Week 40 – 51% is HUGE!

Week 40 – 51% of 23:56:04.1

23:56:04.1 hours.

That’s how much time it takes our Earth to complete one rotation. We have, for convenience sake, rounded off to 24 hours. The reason I bring up this measurement of time is simply to have a benchmark to observe my activity during that precious time. The time is exactly the same for everyone and everything on Earth.

During this time our minds never stop. Awake or asleep our brain runs this incredible mechanism we call our body; making minute adjustments treading water

Imagine that at this very moment all the choices, decisions, twists and turns of your life are an ocean of events you have experienced. We are doing what we can to keep our heads above the surface…to stay above the life we create.



Tread Water


We can tread water to stay afloat or don’t and…don’t.

Here’s the reward. As long as we stay and tread water and even swim one stroke we are moving positively.don't_spend_so_much-117941

What keeps us moving? “Right thinking”. Every moment I practice this thought through all the tools of reading, meditation, affirmations and yes even living, I tread water and even swim a few strokes to stay in charge of my day. The undercurrent of past deeds can’t touch me at the surface.untitled5

Stop treading water? Not on my life!

Swim! Swim hard with enthusiasm. Get to your Bliss Island and out of the sea of past choices.walking01

(I won’t continue this metaphor any longer…you get the drift. OK, I couldn’t resist one more)

We are alive continuously until we stop. No vacations, no days off not even an hour off for lunch… continuously! However, how many don’t live while they are alive? As Thoreau said “…lives of quiet desperation.”

I am merely a student of ‘right thinking’ and my challenge is the time I invest in practicing this thinking through my actions. I have found that even if 51% of the time is used positively I am moving forward!Glowing_Chakra_Meditation

And here lies the trick, the sit, meditation. We have been coached to sit just before retiring for the night to fill our minds with all the positive affirmations and visions. And, when we start the day to affirm the thoughts from sleep and start the day.




BAM! One third of my day is done!  I just need to get that 33% up to 51% during my day and I am moving forward in my life.



Here’s to hitting 51% and beyond!


Thank you for your visit. Blessing in your journey.

Week 37 – Becoming a wish

There is a powerful force at work in this Universe.

This force is mind in action.8af01767

Mind in action is thought and thought is creative.

Matter is powerless, passive, inert. Mind is force, energy, power.





Knowing these facts to be true leads me to what I read this week in As A Man Thinketh.

“Do you wish for kindness? Be kind.

Do you ask for truth? Be true.

What you give of yourself you find;

Your world is a reflex of you.”

This not only makes life simple but ironically challenging. Consider this; when we wish for anything we already should know what it is. If not, stop and clarify your wish. Something that is as simple as “I want a great day today!” What would make it great? Details, details and more details. The Universe requires details or they will get filled in by another’s plans.

I recall stories of how incomplete wishes turned into nightmares; how a wish for more money comes to fruition by way a passing of a loved one and the subsequent insurance payout. Not the way it was planned because it was not planned at all.

We must be diligent and precise in our plans. As our plans consist of words we therefore must be spot on with the words we use. Words are the architecture of our lives.

If we say “put a roof on a house” who knows what we will end up with? We will be at the mercy of the builder.


The same applies to our lives. There are plans in play at all times; our plans or someone else’s plans but there are plans nonetheless.

It has been said “If you fail to plan you are planning to fail.” I tend to agree only in part with this. I see this statement this way. “If you fail to plan you become part of someone else’s plan.” Now, I cannot begin to guess whether these plans are good or bad for you. I do know that they do not have your life, your destiny as a factor. It’s NOT YOUR PLAN!

So I make my ‘wish’ clear, exact, specific and within a timeframe that is clear, exact and specific. And then I add the magical ingredient. ACTION

placesetting future If you wish to die of starvation then look at a recipe for a magnificent dinner.  Stare at the delicious ingredients, Salivate over the spices. And watch yourself starve.



Bon appetite to your destiny!
