When the Student Becomes the Master Then the Teaching is Complete!

studentIn Zen Buddhism there is a phrase,“When the Student Becomes the Master Then the Teaching is Complete”.

Most people tend to think this means that the student has learned everything and they are fully trained. But the truth is that it means something very different: when the student creates a piece of information viewed in a way not thought of before then their connection to spirit is such that great knowledgezen businessman can be transmittted through them. True Spiritual Knowledge is not taught, it is bestowed…

I had such an experience this weekend. A Ministry student of mine, Lic. Jordan Taylor, was scheduled to speak in church this past Sunday, I figured a good renditon of something on her favorite topic, Reiki, (she is a Reiki Master) but we all were floored instead.

I had A surge of pride that my lessons had been take so much to heart and also in the Prowess my student now displays… With Insights like this you can expect to see her fully Ordained in a very short period of time…

Below I paraphrase what she taught us , or should I more correctly say…TAUGHT ME.
(I hope I can do it Justice)


Lic. Jordan started with a tame enough statement from the bible:
Exodus 20:7 “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”

Then she defined Vain:
From Webster’s Dictionary:  Vain vān/ producing no result; useless.a vain attempt to tidy up the roomsynonyms: futile, useless, pointless, to no purpose, hopeless, in vain;

Jordan then explained that that same section had explained the Name of God earlier:
Exodus 3:13&14  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.”

And then came the revalation:
Jordan then stated; So whenever we use the phrase ‘I Am’ negatively, we then are guilty of taking the Lord God’s name in vain. When we saythings like “I am hurting”, “I am stupid”, “I am poor”, “I am alone”, “I am in pain”, “I am nothing”, “I am nobody”, “I am inadequate”, or simply “I am not going to amount to anything”. we take the Lord’s name in vain and the result is our inner spirit finds us guilty, and gives us more of that which we profess as a result.

Then she continued:
But we can turn it around… “Regardless of what is happening around us we can we can say things like “I am healing”, “I am smart”, “I am rich”, “I am loved”, “I am in at peace”, “I am God’s greatest creation!”, “I am worthy of abundance, I am capable of many things!”, or justifiably “I am becoming that greatness that God has Planned for me!”.


Such insight is priceless, Kudos to Jordan Taylor fior this masterpiece of insight…

A Sense of Urgency

Great enough I had to reblog

Our Master Key System Discovery Experience

I am just discovering the sense of urgency.

Not that I never heard about it, it’s just that something in my blueprint clicked differently on it.

I am now applying the Franklin Makeover approach, looking for the sense of urgency all around me.

It’s easy in spring time to spot it with birds.

I am surrounded by them (a forrest begins at the end of my garden), and their quest for food is a perfect example, because their nest is built and the baby birds are tweeting (THEY don’t need a computer to do this 🙂 )

Last day, I observed the sense of urgency by its absence.

A new distributor in my network marketing organization had initially done an excellent job with one of her prospects, touching his heart desire.

In network marketing, the David Copperfield syndrom means the early and "unexplained" disparition of a prospect or a distributor. In network marketing, the David Copperfield syndrom means the early and “unexplained” disparition of a prospect or a distributor.

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On Fear

J. Krishnamurti said it best when he stated:

krishnamurti“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.”Jiddu Krishnamurti

We all have a multitude of fears that hinder success but most can be boiled down to the following 13…

A Bakers Dozen of Fear:

Fear of standing out, of being noticed.

This is the reason public speaking is one of the biggest fears today. Some people would rather walk on hot coals than get up on a stage. It stems from an underlying fear of what other people think of us.

But what you may not realize is that other people are busy thinking the same thing. At some point in our evolution, I’m sure this fear of standing out came in handy, but it isn’t relevant anymore.

Fear of not being good enough.

Quite simply put it’s a fear of imperfection. We fear that whatever he is doing is wrong in some way. Even making a call, writing something, eating ,or talking in front of others is difficult knowing deep down that they are making some kind of error in their task.

No one is perfect everyone has faults and frailties. If you do your best that is all that is required and if anyone says you are not good enough remember that God created you, and God does NOT make Junk.

bacon“Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; adversity not without many comforts and hopes.”Francis Bacon

 

Fear of turmoil.

If clutter and confusion cause a stress reaction, it can lead to compulsive behaviors designed to eliminate any triggers. Cleaning and organizing may become somewhat of a fetish with the afflicted person.

Life is turmoil, there is no getting away from it, the best you can do is the best you can do but to fear the inevitable is the same as worrying that sometime before age 150 you are probably going to die. Yes it is correct but all the worry in the world cannot change it or extend it… Better to Live life and love life as it is, than to fear it is not going to always be good.

Fear of failure.

Success is not guaranteed by vnever failing…  If i sit in a chair watching television all day i am successfully avoiding becomming a failure at running a marathon…. but ill never be successful at that marathon either. fear of failure only blocks you from learning and succeeding. The reality is that lack of failure equals lack of risk-taking, and risk taking is required for any meaningful success.

 

sweeney“True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful.”Paul Sweeney

 

Fear of wasting time and/or money.

Time is the most important resource at any CEO’s disposal. When it’s invested wisely, the CEO solves lots of problems and makes measurable progress toward goals. When time is wasted, the CEO loses ground and is likely to change physical and emotional states in a way that makes other people wish they had called in sick to work. CEOs will do virtually anything to avoid being placed in a situation in which they have no choice but to waste time.

Fear of losing control.

One of the most prevalent fears people have is that of losing control.  This is the fear that if you don’t manage to control the outcome of future events, something terrible will happen.  People who are chronic sufferers from such losing-control anxiety keep themselves continuously in a heightened state of stress with only brief, unsatisfying intermissions between fears.

Fear of something that hasn’t (and probably won’t) happen.

Fear of the future is one of the biggest obstacles that strangulates the hearts and minds of humankind. This fear is rooted the What-If’s. What if talk at lunch to somebody and my Boss finds out and gets Angry, what if I take one afternoon off to build my future and they find out and I get fired, what if my wife finds out I went to a team gathering at a bar this instead of coming straight home for supper.

Fear of looking undesirable or clownish.

In groups of men and women this fear is a social stigma. We often think that our value is entirely based on the body we have, and totally ignore the true beauty within. Along with this we fear that others see us in a steriotypical role that is also stigmatized, like Nerd, Geek, Wallflower, weakling, and a huge number of less polite and more insulting labels. The truth is you are NOT any label unless you stick that label on yourself, AKA you have to accept and own it… As I said before you were good enough for God to create, and that should be enough.

II Timothy 1:7 –For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Fear of the unknown.

The fear of the unknown leaves people a frozen status. They are afraid of entering and exploring the new ground, because they think they might get in trouble.

Fear of appearing ignorant

(Yep, I am still working on this one).  You’re not clear about the other person is saying but you’re afraid to ask for clarification for fear of appearing ignorant. You pretend to understand when you don’t. In both business and life this often leads to decisions formed on bad information that wind up feeding our other fears.

Fear of being misunderstood.

After Fear of appearing ignorant this is the second edge of the double edged sword. When we are children we tend to be misunderstood, a lot, and often we grow to adulthood fearing it.  No one likes like being misunderstood and we don’t want to misunderstand others as well.

I John 4:18“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

 

Fear of change.

Fear of change holds the reins on all the other twelve fears here. Unless change is addressed in a calm, logical, frame of mind it creates terrors more debilitating than being paralyzed

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. – Jim Morrison

 Let me know how you are dealing with fear…. I would love to know…

Let’s All Sing In The Spirit Of Change… Or At Least Hum The Tune.

Why are we afraid of nothing?

fherbertWithout change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken. (Duke Lito Atredes : Dune) — Frank Herbert

For Most of us walking this earth change is to be feared, change must be forstalled, change should be avoided at all costs. That is the clarion call of the masses. They see change as a catalyst, for both good and evil, but because it is unknown it creates disquiet and turbulance in life.

In reality nothing really changes. The latin phrase “Nihil Novi Sub Sole” (“there is nothing new under the sun“) declares that eloquently. Nothing is new; nothing is unseen; all is as it has been.

Ecclesiastes 1:9: “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

How can Nothing be New???

Some Philosophies promote that this is not the first time Man has walked the earth, Just the current time. An unusual concept, I agree, but what if there have been a miriad of “Big Bangs” eventually collapsing back into the creative-first to bang out once again… The God of my understanding is fully capable of that..or he could have just plopped a world here and populated it. The universe is his creation, after all, not ours.

Who is so knowledgable about God that they are willing to say HOW God works his creation… Not I, I assure You… To set limits what and how God operates is the epitomy of ego and not to be believed. My God is  a god of CHANGE and his will is unlimited in any way, shape, or form. Even The Master Jesus said that “In My Fathers house are many mansions…

LTolstoy“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”Leo Tolstoy

So if the world is unchanging what is? The answer…WE ARE! We are Spirits of change, to deny it is to deny the God that created us. But change spurs the uknown into our lives it stirs the unfamiliar and is usually feared…But think of the glory of the change, that is God’s gift to us… That WE can change our perspective, that WE can change our direction, that WE can even change our minds, and in so doing see the world as changed

5Hawking“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” –Stephen Hawking

The fact that we are not DOOMED to mediocrity, that we can burst from the cocoon of samness and spread glorious wings of success and abundance.

OK Who wants to wash stinky feet with me???

John 13:5-8 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

The Message Here Is Two-Fold

The first is the ever popular “He who would be master of any, must be the servant of all” and Yes that is a valid discussion we can go into here. But there is a second, deeper meaning, that of, “You, by that act of being of service to those who may aid you,  bless them with a piece of what you are,”  sated as: I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me… Or in today’s vernacular: enabling others the good chance to be to be “cleansed” of their servitude to their old blueprints as you are now finding for yourself.

You may note that service is done BEFORE the celibration, not after, this is in order to validae the “sowing and reaping” that the masters all speak ofand i have pointed out in previous posts. You neeed to be of service BEFORE the service is of any value to you. youIn other words if you to reap the benefit the benifit will be small or none. The farmer olanting corn does not plant 1 seed in each hole dug, they plant several. Why is that you ask?

Not every seed will grow…

And not every service rendered will result in a prosperous return. But render the service anyway, do not care if they bear rewards, the reward is the ability to do the service first and formost but if they do reap you a reward it ALWAYS is mor than the total services renderd.

“The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”James Allen

Just like 2 to 4 seeds results in several ears of corn with hundreds of seeds, seedsome of wich are used to plant the next crop.  If a farmer used all of his crop to sell for profit then he would too buy seed for the next harvest, usually at more cost per seed that his profit per seed. no sence there . and there is no cropsence only looking for the reward and then hoarding it to yourself .

Hoarding the returns interferes when you have to sow more services , and since you had rewards the sowing would have been be easier. If you  use it all for you eventually you will have to convert it to give servivce later anyway.

Robert-CollierYou cannot hold on to anything good. You must be continually giving – and getting. You cannot hold on to your seed. You must sow it – and reap anew. You cannot hold on to riches. You must use them and get other riches in return.” — Robert Collier

So  give, even if you have to give till it hurts… Give your money, things,ideas but most of all give your time to help those who need it…

I would love to hear your ideas on this…
