Two interesting things I’d like to discuss.
In the Master Key Part Sixteen, Haanel describes the Law of Sevens and how it pretty much governs everything. This is pretty incredible. It doesn’t matter whether or not you are aware of this Law, it just is, we’re all in it.
Life is growth and growth is change, each seven year period takes us into a new cycle…
…The fifthh period is the constructive period, when men begin to acquire property, possessions a home and family.
I decided to start at this fifth period and investigate my past to verify Haanel’s statements. In this fifth period, although I had no property, I had and was acquiring possessions, a car, clothing, diplomas, electrician’s license a pretty good job with the Transit Commission, I was a volunteer firefighter, working to become a career firefighter. I was renting an apartment at the time, and I did meet someone special with whom I fell in love with, and with whom I have a beautiful family with today. Ok. Constructive period, I can see that.
The next from 35 to 42 is a period of reactions and changes…
I think back again. Reactions and changes… I went through many. Here are some of them. I was overcoming a sickness and on the road to recovery. My wife and I joined an mlm business. I decided to leave the Transit Commission and pursue my dream of becoming a career firefighter. At 35 my son was born, at 36 I earned a job as a career firefighter, at 38 my daughter was born. I was drawn into the realm of personal development, which then became and is now self-discovery. I am now 40, so there is still a lot of time for more reactions and changes and I know there will be.
…and this in turn is followed by a period of reconstruction, readjustment and recuperation…
As I read this part I can’t help but think it’s a little eerie that there is quite a bit of truth to that. I’m sitting here writing this post and I think about this MKMMA course… reconstruction… creating a new blueprint for the subconscious mind… readjustment… shifting from scattered or negative thoughts to positive and focused thoughts… recuperation… the recovery or regaining of something… regaining control of my mind to recover my life and live it with purpose from here on in. I believe that I am setting things in motion for this next period.
…so as to be ready for a new cycle of sevens, beginning with the fiftieth year.
Wait a minute… did he say fiftieth year? I am overwhelmed with emotion as I read this part and in a little bit of shock. I fumble through the original copies of my DMP to find it, something I left out because I didn’t know how to fit in… “Retiring at 50 from the Fire Service before Friday September 25th, 2025…” Well isn’t that interesting, I left it out of my DMP… because I didn’t know how to fit it in. What I find even more interesting is that I felt compelled to put this piece back into my Press Release (sorry still haven’t got the revised version up yet).
He goes on to say that:
Those familiar with these cycles will not be disturbed when things seem to go wrong, but can apply the principle outlined in these lessons with full assurance that a higher law will invariably control all other laws, and that through an understanding and conscious operation of spiritual laws, we can convert every seeming difficulty into a blessing.
I believe this statement more and more every day as I practice and apply what I am learning through the MKMMA course.
Something that I have been struggling with for some time now, and something that I think about daily. My DMP, Personal Pivotal Needs(PPNs) and SMART goals. SMART goals… a means to accomplishing an end… PPNs. When I achieve what it is that I want does that mean that my end becomes the means to the next end? What are your thoughts?
