The World Within
1-36. This system will bring you into a realization of power which will be yours when you understand this relation between the world without and the world within. The world within is the cause, the world without the effect; to change the effect you must change the cause.
1-37. You will at once see that this is a radically new and different idea; most men try to change effects by working with effects. They fail to see that this is simply changing one form of distress for another. To remove discord, we must remove the cause, and this cause can be found only in the world within.
Time to change the world within.
We are back at the Master Key Experience course and I am so excited! This year I am guide and I could not be more honored. I am ready to help my tribe navigate and expand through this course. To be honest I did let some exercises fall to the wayside over the summer. And it is time to take the bull by the horns again! I look back to my original Week 1 post last year and I can already see how far I can come, but I feel I have only peeled off the first layer.
When I initially started this course last year my world within was a dangerous place. My thoughts were filled with fear and negativity. Oh how I had wished that someone would have explained these potent facts to me when I was a child. As I was taking a shower this morning I was contemplating Haanel’s words in 1:36 and 1:37. I remember people saying “Hope for the best and expect the worst!” The has to be the worst advice/way of thinking we could possibly ever do! We do have the power to change the world around us. And yes at first it may be a scary thing to go inside, because some of us have never even taken a peak. But once we face ourselves and learn to love our demons we can start creating the life we deserve.
I am definitely not perfect at this task and I still have some old blueprint residue that I had allowed to rebuild over the summer. But I am ready to take my world within head on again and clean it up so I can forge new paths of my reality.
The first and I feel the most important task of all others is “the sit.” I have committed myself again to this daily ritual. Because in the silence comes your greatest answers. Welcome to the new class of 2016/17 MKE! 6 months from now you will not even recognize yourself! May the force be with you! PEACE.
