Week 17 Trading in My Graven Images For Just Being

The Images And Being Me

The Master Key Chapter 17

Graven Images

We of the twentieth century worship a God of Love in theory, but in practice we make for ourselves “graven images” of Wealth,” “Power,” “Fashion,” “Custom” and “Conventionality.” We “fall down” before them and worship them. We concentrate on them and they are thereby externalized in our lives. The Master Key Pt. 17 Intro.

Any person of intelligence must have checked on himself to be sure they are worshiping the correct thing. In the 17th chapter of The Master Key, we’re cautioned as students not to mistake the symbols for the reality. We’re to be interested in the causes, rather than effects, concentrating on the realities of life, and then not be disappointed in the results.

What Images Are You Focusing On?

As we who have dominion of all things, it makes sense that our mental world is the keeper of that dominion. The kinds of images I focused on this week varied. I do believe most of them were in keeping with my definite chief aim. Focusing on love in all things, I wrote “Brincely The Brave”, a story about the courageous life of a newborn baby. In previous posts, I shared that part of my DMP was realized on a Christmas visit with my family.

Concentration, we’re told is much misunderstood. There seems to be an idea of effort or activity associated with it. Haanel says it’s in forgetting our self and instead embracing the character we are playing. As I wrote the story, I concentrated on words that in the future those reading it would be inspired by. Was it work? Well, I was inspired by much of it. The work came in the activity of adding photos. Creating a book uses time. I enjoyed the vision of Brincely looking at pictures of himself in the book, as his Mommy read the words aloud. The story is meant to inspire all of us.

The Images of Brincely

I reflected on my grandson to check to see if he was a graven image I worship. I decided that he is a darling boy and that I worship the love I receive from his smile, from his movements. I am so excited that one day very soon, he’ll gain his freedom and run around the house chasing kitty cats!

Images We Cry For

“There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”. We’re taught that we cannot have one with out the other, that we must first find the “kingdom” before we have the “things added.” A little boy cries to have his needs met. I know I have whined at times to God to have my needs met too! However, I am learning to see myself as one who already attained those things I desire. I am practicing “being” that person. Then there is only the demand (the having attained) and the surplus (the manifestation).

Here is the PDF file of “Brincely the Brave” for you to read. It’s 31 pages with lots of large pictures. Please give me feedback on it in the comment section. It’s always appreciated. The story is simple and there is a moral. Brincely is born brave. In order for him to accomplish all he has in his first year, he must see himself (the kingdom) as already having attained it. Let’s learn to be brave and give ourselves permission to “be” who we desire. Then all of what we want will be added unto us. If a newborn can do it, then it should be easy for us! Right?

I had a nun in high school who gave me a poster before I graduated that said “Don’t just stand there! BE”. Though the images of her are vague, the reality of her words have echoed in me for many years and I believe she knew something I had yet to learn.

Week 15 -Courage Is From The Beginning

Courage begins here!

The Master Key Chapter 15

Lion Hearted Courage
Lion Hearted Courage

What is courage?

The dictionary definition of courage is:
  • the ability to do something that frightens one.
“he called on all his courage to face the ordeal”
  • strength in the face of pain or grief.

It was suggested in our Master Key class that we watch one of 4 movies over the holiday. It took me a couple weeks to find a version of “Rudy”, a story of a young man’s dream to play on the Notre Dame football team. A true gem of a movie, the story shares the typical plot of the dreamer who overcomes the odds.

This weeks assignment included the “Franklin Makeover”, in which we are to fill in a sheet with the virtues we desire most to attain to a greater degree. Well, first on my list was “courage”. Very timely, the story of “Rudy” coincided perfectly with demonstration after demonstration of this virtue shown through the “heart” of this young 5ft 9in student with lower than average grade performance.

Demonstrating Courage

Needless to say folks, I was “bawling at the end of the movie”.  So moved by the combination of plot, the faces of the onlookers, and the music, I felt the divine inside me saying “now that’s what I’m talkin about!!!!”

I’m recovering from a long stint of “under the weather body discord”. This week promises a healthy body with courage  to lead me through our reading and exercises.

Courage is from the beginning

I’ve mentioned in my previous post that part of my dmp was realized and along with it an inspiration for a children’s book starring my grandson Brincely.  This children’s book about the courage of a new born as he enters the unknown world of parents, siblings, environment and circumstances began with a manifestation of a silly song I wrote spur of the moment about something Brincely just did.  My imagination is taking me further down this path and I can now see the cover photo which I posted above.

The song went like this:

Brincely the brave… lionhearted

Brincely the brave… lionhearted

Brincely the brave… lionhearted

He’s the bravest lion in the jungle… Rrrrroooaaarrr!!!

Notice the babies mouth! It’s open as though a lion roaring! He is my pride and joy. Brincely the Brave! He has a lions heart! I’m so proud of his courage and he’s just beginning his courageous life!

It takes no apparent difficulties for a baby to have courage. But babyhood requires trust, love, patience and courage.  You and I were born with courage. Young Rudy in the recommended movie was born with courage. Something inside of us is saying “now that’s what I’m talkin about!!!” That spirit is YOUR SPIRIT! The infinite heart of each baby, child, adult and elder.

We were all born with a tremendous amount of courage.

Week 13 Creative Thought and the Unaccountable

Creative or Supernatural

According to Haanel, “as we esteem most highly those useful qualities of men which are of the rarest occurrence, so does natural philosophy sift the facts and attach a preeminent importance to that striking class which cannot be accounted for by the usual and daily observation of life.”

As one who has seen what is known as miracles of healing, for many years, I could not tell you how a person was healed other than that something unaccountable happened. I just figured that we were to do as Jesus did. “Go, lay hands on the sick and they will be healed”.  As part of a prayer ministry on the streets of NY and NJ, we had “miracles of healing” happen.

But now, what I have learned from Haanel is the scientific understanding of “demand and surplus”, or cause and effect. The following is an explanation of a spiritual game of a sort called “Treasure hunt”.

About 8-12 of us got together in a church setting. We’d listen to worship music by a music minister of the healing kind. We’d raise our hands and openly say things like “We praise you Lord”, “Thank you Lord, Thank you Father”. “You are the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end.” Some times we’d knee down or lay face down on the floor for an hour. Other times, we might carry a banner and walk up and down the isle with faith that the flag and the gesture carried in it some form of faith and praise to the Father. Our faith was so aroused during the worship time that we’d feel a strong desire to say something to another person in the group. This something many times was an encouragement to bless them.


Creative thought and the Unaccountable

What I did not realize until this class was that this group was actually a “mastermind group.” Our minds became a greater mind and we’d know things that we may not know without coming together like we did. So after 30 minutes or more of praise and worship, we’d find a quiet place and believe we’d receive “clues” for our treasure hunt. If I were to state it according to Haanel’s explanation, we were setting an intention and then “sitting”.  We’d allow these clues to light upon us. We’d see visions of “things” like a wrought iron railing, a peace sign, a purple flowered shirt, a red suit, a statue, the name Mark, a basketball player, a person who got migranes, the word “love”. We’d gather afterward and compare lists; make note of “like” clues and then decide where we’d go for our treasure hunt.

The intention was right out of Haanel’s “The Master Key”. Our burning desire was follow God’s will to pray for the sick so they will be healed. Our game of choice was Treasure Hunt. We took the clues, decided on the location and park the car or get off the bus or train. We’d all be “in the zone” and ready to see the miracles happen. And they did! We’d sight one of the clues and get excited. We’d see a purple flowered shirt on a person. We’d see the wrought iron railing. We’d see the red cap  and the peace sign. With each sighting, we’d go with boldness to individuals either right their or nearby and begin chatting asking them some questions. Most often, we’d have an opportunity to pray for them. Many times they were at least encouraged. However, on many many occasions, we prayed (put a demand on the universe) and command the healing on their foot, their hands, their back, on arthritis and more.

Creative Law of Attraction

What we called “miracles” were actually the law of attraction at work. The energy in the height of our faith brought a change in the person immediately. If this interests you, you can view the video “The Finger of God” in this post above. This is one ministry using “creative thought” to influence a change in a person’s faith, mind, and body.

Haanel states in #12 of chapter 13: “every honest investigator admits that there are many strange and previously unaccountable phenomena constantly taking place. Those, however, who become acquainted with the creative power of thought, will no longer consider them unaccountable.”

This is now my understanding. What I did in ignorance is actually the science of the law of attraction at it best. This cause and effect, this demand and surplus principle raises my faith to new levels because I understand it from knowledge rather than “mystery”.

“Every phenomenon is the result of an accurate definite cause, and the cause is an immutable law or principle, which operates with invariable precision, whether the law is put into operation consciously or unconsciously.” The Master Key


Creative Thought, Gratitude and Wealth

Now it is understandable how to bring into manifestation persons, places and things. God assists me in bringing into operation the law of attraction. The vibration of praise and worship (gratitude) are the forces which make for success and brings about conditions of power and affluence. Power and affluence are in direct proportion with the character and purpose of the affirmation.

Creative Intention and Feelings

This is what we are reading, writing, recording, singing, and feeling with our DMP (Definite major purpose). Creative thought begins by intention. We ask the question “What do I want?” The intention is the demand. How powerful that it’s okay to place a demand on the universe, without guilt or shame. When we take out the superstition or worry that we’ll offend God by being selfish or whatever nonsense our ignorance kept us handicapped by, the power, courage, kindliness and sympathy come naturally.

My goal is to live naturally; that all I do comes to me with ease, quickly, as the subconscious mind draws it up and I say it. There is more to all of this and I affirm the statement at the end of Chapter 13:

“God – Increase in me wisdom which discovers my truest interest. Strengthen my resolution to perform that which wisdom dictates. “Franklin

Week 12 Educated Desire

God brings vibration
Desire Brings Us Into High Vibration

How can our desire be educated?

Haanel says in The Master Key “Educated desire is the most potent means of bringing into action the law of attraction. If you are in our MKMMA course, you will have learned that God assists us in bringing into operation the law of attraction, which brings us into vibration with forces which make for success and brings about conditions of power and affluence. This power and affluence is in direct proportion with the character and purpose of our affirmation.

So what educated desire do you have?

It’s been suggested that a very large percentage of people have weak desire. In years past, while I was young and immature, I has some strong desires but they were few and far between. They were strong for a short time and then shifted to something else I wanted. Knowing what I know now, I suggest you take a serious look at what you desire and how persistent you are at seeing it through to completion.

Persistence and Desire

These 2  principles go hand and hand but one comes before the other.  What I was missing in my youth was a strong desire that I persistently held until I succeeded. In school.  I loved art and did persist in it.  Being creative, I stumbled upon talents in many areas of art.  I was encouraged to pursue it in college.  What I remember from my childhood,  was my love for teaching and that desire stayed with me, though primarily on the inside, until I felt mature enough to have something to teach. I loved teaching children and knew I had enough knowledge to do that. I pursued a Montessori certificate and knew I was in sync with my teaching gift!

Good habits create greater freedom
Strong desire creates greater freedom

Strong Desire

When I moved out of state due to a traumatic experience, I decided to pursue teaching Montessori in NJ while living with my parents.  The requirements differed from Florida and I was expected to create whole books of exercises I was not required to do in Florida. I decided to take an easier route and look for another job.  My weak desire and a feeling of financial pressure carried me into a billing office job. Before long, I knew my job but it was nothing like teaching those little children how to read.

Many years have passed. I married, had children and home-schooled them using the stills I’d been taught in my Montessori training.  My love for teaching persisted. Of late, I teach leadership skills to the teachable, moldable plastic minds of individuals on the lookout for coaching in relationship marketing. Teaching has turned to coaching and my desire has grown more focused.

Focused Desire

Old or young, we all have a great opportunity to turn our dreams into reality.  Yet, a weak desire for these dreams will take us down the stream to poverty. Do you want to know the secret to riches? To wealth? To success? STRONG BURNING DESIRE!

How do we get a burning desire?

Begin now to create the necessary brain cells which will enable you to comprehend the unlimited powers which may be yours by cooperating with natural law.  This is done by concentration or attention.

Haanel writes “The intention governs the attention.”  Power comes through repose (a state of rest, sleep, or tranquility). It’s by concentration that deep thoughts , wise speech, and all forces of high potentiality are accomplished.”

My Burning Desire

In plain English, we’re taught that this part of the process, which means “sitting” still for 15-30 minutes a day in quiet contemplation and even in quieting the mind. As we adjust our self to the deeper forces at work inside us and giving ourselves over to this “infinite intelligence”,  we begin to allow the unfolding of creative ideas. Using our creative imagination, we may enjoy a pretty scene where a dear friend sits with us and we chat about life. We may take a walk or a run with Jesus or a mentor we have learned from in the past.  Later, our concentration on this deep rest will reveal ideas to us. It will most definitely affirm us in some way.

Recently in my sit,  I was encouraged to take on the name “Caryn The Courageous”. This triggered for me an idea for a book.  It is burning desire and concentration on observing and listening  that helps us control and direct our thoughts toward prosperous directions.

Demand and Desire

Science speaks of demand and surplus. Our burning desire is like “demand” in science. When there is a demand placed out there in the universe and burning inside us, our subconscious mind has no other course than to find the surplus to meet that demand. Natural law is set up to do this.

Today, realize that God assists us in bringing into operation the law of attraction  bringing us into vibration with forces which make for success and brings about conditions of power and affluence. These will be in direction proportion with the character and purpose of the affirmation.

So what is your affirmation? If it’s a strong desire, it means you will be passionate about it. This passion is a feeling the subconscious mind recognizes as a high vibration. High vibrations get met first! So find a strong desire (your definite major purpose) , affirm it out loud over and over, daily, and the manifestation of it will sneak up behind you, chase you down and run you over!

“See if I will not pour out a blessing too numerous for you to contain.”  The Bible

Week 11 – How to Get Your Prayers Answered With Demand

Organized Demand

Your life is governed by law – by actual, immutable principles that never vary. Law is in operation at all times; in all places. Fixed laws underlie all human actions. For this reason, men who control giant industries are enabled to determine with
absolute precision just what percentage of every hundred thousand people will respond to any given set of conditions.  The Master Key, Charles Haanal

The Master Key Part 11

Divine Demand and Science

Scientists and philosophers place a demand on the universe when they find a tooth and go about looking for the surplus to create the entire creature. Another scientist envisions the planets and looks for the stars.

House On A Lake
House On A Lake

Home Demand

In order to keep things in order in the universe, God’s creation includes the law of demand and surplus. Things are always looking to complete themselves.  A single kitchen cup desires the rest of the set of dishes to achieve harmony. A balance of objects gathered together co exist as opposites, looking for surplus to satisfy the demand for harmony.  A home environment is  a perfect place to see how this science relates to the art and practice of balance. This is seen in the desire for harmony in one’s physical environment.

Needs, wants and desires create demand

Reflecting back to chapter 2 of The Master Key, I realized the key to manifesting what I wanted in life would come more quickly with authenticity of my innate needs. We all have needs, wants and desires. The supply meets the demand.  So I looked over my notes and this is what I saw.

What do we win?

– The ability to create and manifest
• Ideas, intentions and the necessary methods
– Effortlessly
– This is the Master Key to all life’s riches

This got me looking again at my PPNs to be sure that they were actually my deepest needs.


The Master key alliance described how KNOWING our Personal Pivotal Needs assist in creating the burning desire.

How To build Burning Desire

• Supply ‘subby’ with earnest Desire
– It has no experience with this since???
– The  ‘childish’ exercises work, when repeated,  with FEELING, forge a new habit and experience within the subconscious

• Subconscious in turn creates a Demand
– It  ‘expects’  the demand is met.  That is FAITH folks
– It creates new pathway for the methods needed
– Og, ‘mysterious source… ways I do not comprehend’

Our Personal Pivotal Needs And Demand

Now it’s time for me to reassess my ppn’s and decide if they are assisting me in creating the kind of burn we’re taught about.

whyppns  The Personal Pivotal Needs ( PPN’s) are

  • • Legacy
  • • Spiritual Growth
  • • Autonomy
  • • Liberty
  • • Helping Others
  • • Recognition for Creative Expression
  • • True Health

Anthony Robbins does interventions right on the spot with people in his seminars because he finds their PPN’s and helps them to see how their needs are out of alignment with their circumstances. This coaching skill when demonstrated creates the harmony missing in their lives. Anthony’s name for these needs varies a bit but with analysis aligns with our MKMMA terms:

  • Certainty
  • Variety
  • Significance
  • Connection
  • Growth
  • Contribution


Is This One Of Your Needs?

What Is Your Demand?

Everyone of us comes to earth with needs. Often times our want for a car meets the liberty need. Want for a house meets a connection need.  What we want and desire satisfies our needs.  Generating a burning desire for that  need to be met strengthens the demand on nature,  (the universe, God)  and draws the surplus in the world to meet that need. Fascinating huh?

Reflecting on this personally, I faltered in understanding this. I remember giving up demanding my needs be met by my parents and chose to pray instead.  My parents provided food, clothing and shelter which was great. However, there were needs I didn’t have met. I  really have to reassess what I needed as a kid and see if I can properly put a demand now on the universe for them.

My perspective changed a bit from when I began writing this article and I feel better about how I grew up.  Questions like “How can I demand God give me something?” crept in which we know is the old blueprint speaking.   Because surplus and demand are natures law,  utilizing them correctly is a way to bring glory to God which means we are living in harmony with the laws of the universe . For as long as there has been life, these laws have been laws.

This is not our fight!

If we fight this, we fight God. We fight harmony.  We fight surplus and demand.  And therefore,  we prevent the demand which is meant to be met by birthright!
