The popular board game, “Monopoly”, is a game where you buy Real Estate, as pieces advance around the board according to the roll of the dice, or in other words, by chance. In real life, the game of “Monopoly” patterns closely to the game of “life”. There are many buyers but only one seller, and we win by chance and the abilities we have to “Create an edge”.
Our thought processes work very similarly and the ones who succeed in life are the ones who best control their minds and not rely on chance alone. The more we learn how to control our thoughts and the cause of every event in our life, by whatever means creates this “edge” , will help us succeed above our dreams.
That is where the Master Keys comes into play. Not only reading Haanal’s works but combining them with the exercises will allow lasting change to take place. The exercises all work in congruence with each other.
This brings us to the importance of the DMP being read 3 times daily, but also as important the two Primary Pivotal Needs. I never realized the first time how important these PPN’s are connected to the DMP. But even if the two I picked may sometimes seem out of sync, once these are established all of them will fall into place.
Spiritual Growth & True Health are the two Primary Pivotal Needs I have chosen to begin the hero’s journey.
Because I believe in the Christian faith, the Universal Mind is the God of Abraham to me. Because growth comes through trials, Scripture also teaches we are not to grow weary in the process. Much spiritual development is the result of persistence. “As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good” (2 Thessalonians 3:13). “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9). So this fits in perfectly for how I am approaching the next 24 weeks.
To me, True Health is “Optimum physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease.”
How can I assure myself that I have the best chance of enjoying ‘well-being’? It begins by having a body that is working as it was designed to work. My training as a Pharmacist and understanding The Sympathetic & Parasympathetic Nervous Systems, shows me that the subconscious can affect my total well-being. Thus, an important aspect of health is how well my nervous system is orchestrating the workings of my body
My brain, spinal cord and all of my nerves control and regulate my body. Every cell, tissue, organ, and system (even my immune system!) take instructions from my nervous system. And gues who controls the nervous system, thats the ‘subconscious. So ultimately getting “Subby” in line with my spirit, is essential if I am to attain well-being.
Now the correlation of the Mater Keys and the primary pivotal needs is to master my thoughts which control the nervous system, and that will help me control the game of life.
