Today I started on a “Great Adventure.” It is a 6 month learning experience called the Master Keys Master Mind Alliance. It is based on a 24 week correspondence course originally published in 1912 by Charles F Hannel called The Master Key System. Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, and W.Clement Stone were all students of this course and it greatly influenced each of their lives.
It is a course of authentic self discovery NOT a self help course. To start with we discussed dharma. Dharma is a Sanskrit word for purpose in life and the entire course is geared toward defining ones purpose.
To begin with one must understand that you were made for the best, by the Best. Now I capitalized the second “Best” because in my heart of heart the “Best” that created us is God.
Now when you were born all opportunity in the world is yours. In effect we are like pure gold, unblemished, without any outside prejudices. Unfortunately, over time we are influenced by many others outside of ourselves. These influencers include our parents and families, schools, governments, our peer’s, the business community including “advertisers.” They all cover you in cement and clay, like the Golden Buddha in the video. They cover up the true you that is within so you conform to, acquiesce to, the society around you. They use the Dragon (fear) to discourage you; to dissuade you from journeying too far from conventional thinking.
For us to have success and really achieve our dharma, our true purpose in life we must slay our dragons of false security. The false idols of the society outside of us.
There are so many books written on the subject of success and how to achieve it but most of them focus on physical actions for us to take in order to achieve the desired results. Conventional wisdom says that thought becomes belief. Belief then leads to action and action creates the desired results.
