This month, we focus on Scroll VIII, which begins, “Today I multiply my value a hundredfold.” This scroll is about making the best use of our time and finding the best way to enhance our value to the world. We are compared to a grain of wheat with one difference. The grain of wheat cannot choose whether it is fed to swine, ground for bread, or planted to multiply. We humans have a choice. We were not born as food for swine. We were not born to be ground up and be food for others. We were born to multiply our value a hundredfold or more by planting ourselves in fertile soil and magnifying our gifts for the benefit of the world.
How are YOU multiplying your value?
Continuation is the icing on the cake once you complete the six-month Master Keys course. It’s the lifetime membership option and offers guided material until the next course opens. The lifetime membership is important because Mark and Davene are clear the Master Keys is about teaching us to be independent thinkers. If the course were structured to get us to buy it over and over again, that wouldn’t align with that goal, would it?
Instead, the lifetime membership offered by continuation allows students continued access to the course material and all aspects of the course except a guide. If a guide is desired for subsequent course iterations, people are asked to Pay It Forward again, which is understandable.
Angie Mroczka asked this question earlier this month, and I’ve been pondering it since then.
When I look back over my life, I most lament my refusal to listen and my negative attitude. My refusal to listen has kept me from being fodder for people influencing for negative as well as positive things, so I can’t say that I would have changed that without some compensating skill.
The negative attitude, though. With what I’ve learned over the last two years with the MasterKey Experience, I’m sad I wasn’t ready to learn a more positive approach until recently. Hard-headed as I’ve been, reaching this point has been 56 years in the making, and I’ve had a relatively painless journey. I know so many people whose journey has been so much more challenging. I don’t wish more challenge in my life, but I marvel at the challenges other people have faced, met head on, and persevered through. The more I learn about other people’s journeys, the more respect I have for where they are today in their lives.
When you find yourself wondering why some people are the way they are, change that to wondering what they have gone through or are going through to get them where they are today. Vow to be a positive part of wherever that place may be.
So, no, I wouldn’t really change anything about my life. Everything has happened for a reason, even if I don’t always know what that reason has been.
The second year of the Master Key Experience is winding down. My mastermind partner and I have made the program our own and implemented many personal modifications, but it’s working for us.
I’m a lifetime member, so I’ll continue to adjust in the future to ensure this program works for me. Some of the things I anticipated doing at the beginning of this year fell by the wayside. It’s time to look at revising my Definite Major Purpose again — some things have manifested, and others are manifesting but would benefit from a revision to be more true to me. I’ve changed, so the purpose adjusts a little over time.
I remember discussing on one of my blog entries how this wasn’t effortless for me yet (I think it may have been on the MKMMA blog), but as I’m contemplating this entry, I can say I’ve nearly achieved effortlessness in executing the MKE. Nobody is more surprised than me to hear me saying this.
In May, I’ll be on a cruise to Alaska. One my goals is to spend significant time in Silence on that cruise, so I’ll be preparing to make the most of that contemplation time before embarkation.
For people taking the Master Key Experience course this year, they are in Week 19. I’d like to examine paragraph 24 from this week’s lesson material: 24. Thought is the vital force or energy which is being developed and which has produced such startling results in the last half century … Continue reading →
One of my Personal Pivotal Needs is True Health. What’s the story? How’s it coming for me? I’m pleased with where I am in this process, which is mostly mental. When my mental state is in the right place, I do healthy things. My mental state was terrible when I … Continue reading →
I’m well into the second year of the MasterKey experience. My MasterMind Partner and I are experimenting with making the program fit our lives without abandoning what got us to where we are today. Our Definite Major Purposes (DMPs) are manifesting in various ways. She’s making progress with her business, … Continue reading →
I’m beginning my second year practicing the Master Keys, and I’m enjoying what I’m learning as I refine my life. The new Master Keys class began on September 25. Most of you missed it, and I’m sorry for that. Even if your life is all together, I believe there’s value … Continue reading →

Some of you are tired of hearing about the Master Key Experience. I’m sorry to hear that. But I got what I wanted from taking this class, and you can too. You may not want what I took the class to get — maybe you already have that, but you … Continue reading →
