Master Key Week 3: Sacrifice

Share Button

This is Week Three in the Master Key experience.

I am full on in a battle… Old Habits vs New Intentions. Old habits are dug in deep and creating fear and doubt about whether I can break the habits or not…. and on the other side is faith, desire and resolve. Faith to trust and commit to do the exercises, Desire to get stronger and be better able to live my BEST each day , and Resolve to push past testerdays, towards happiness, peace, joy, and profound love.

I have lingered too long on a barren plateau. Now, I  summon my courage, face my fear, replace the fear with constructive action and release my power to do good.  The battle rages on…

Gratefully, I have been thinking more deeply about my Definite Major Purpose. I find it exciting to contemplate the blueprint details and  to work at crafting those details in the passionate present positive so I can feed those thoughts to my conscious and ultimately my subconscious mind. Ah Ha… Could someone with unlimited resources take my blueprint and create the life I desire from my details in the blueprint?  Not yet. The battle continues…

I had a thought as I was listening to the comments about “sacrifice”.

We tend to describe sacrifice as giving up something. There are many appetites and activities that give momentary satisfaction but little or nothing that brings sustained peace and profound joy into our lives. Giving up  or surrendering something that conflicts with our oneness with the Universal is actually beneficial to us. Our lives are “blessed” or  “elevated” through that which we sacrifice. The word SACRIFICE itself has Latin roots: “sacra” means “Sacred or Holy” and the Latin verb “fecere”,  meaning to “make or do”,  gives the ending “fice”. In that context, “sacrifice” suggests a behavior to ‘make Holy’ or ‘to do that which is sacred’. Such an activity brings us into alignment with the power of the Universal mind. Giving up habits that hold us back is to our immediate and long term benefit. Replacing bad habits for good habits through sacrifice aligns the subconscious with the Universal.

Master Key is giving me the tools and process to consciously replace the ‘doom and gloom’ bad habits  of fear and uncertainty with empowering, uplifting good habits that clear out  fuzzy confusion and focus behaviors that direct the desired outcomes. As I work to master these skills, I feel a growing confidence and anticipation of the changes that  lie ahead in the next few weeks.

There are battles yet to be fought.  I continue to search, ponder and pray with hope that I will  move closer to a servants heart and a masters mind.
