Week 16 – The Master Key and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Wealth should then never be desired as an end, but simply as a means of accomplishing an end.
Success is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches, and he who aspires to such success must formulate an ideal for which his is willing to strive….. there must be a definite fixed purpose, an ideal.  (Charles Haanel)

success keysI am not sure what I am going to write about this week.  It seems I have been on a roller coaster of emotions, old messages have found their way to creep into my mind.  Today, however, I pulled out all ‘stops,’ and got back on track.

I have found it fascinating to read:  “The man of success is the man possessed of the greatest spiritual understanding and every great fortune comes of superior and truly spiritual power…. The power to create depends entirely upon [this] spiritual power; idealization, visualization and materialization.”

Weeks ago I spoke in this blog about my definition of success.  Check out my post from week 6.  I find it comforting and assuring to read and re-read part sixteen of the MASTER KEY SYSTEM.  Yes, the material comforts that come with success are great and are ours for the taking, but that is not what we should going after.  It’s not the car, the vacation, the house, or the money,  it’s what we do with what we have learned that really matters.  Are you really making a difference in the lives of others?

quote from Dr. king

 Are you willing to be an instrument in the Lord’s hand?  Hmm,  what a wonderful vocation to be the instrument through which God plays his song!?!

what are you doing for others

Today I received a reflection from a Jesuit Priest, he spoke of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.   What a man!!  We should all stop and remember King’s simple greatness, because if you are reading this, you are following in Dr. King’s foot steps.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was one, who allowed God’s breath, God’s spirit to play through him.    He was one who responded to the call of action – the hero’s journey within.  He was a hero– as each of us is to be, if we get out of the way and let the song be God’s song.  King gave  every last breath to this calling.  The result is that King has had a lasting mark on humankind.

The lesson for me is pretty simple.  Stay the course, don’t give up or give in, don’t stop believing!

Until next week, say a prayer of gratitude to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Be your own Hero and listen to the greatness that lies within you!

    Great post and thanks for the reminder of Dr. Martin Luther King

    • It is amazing, I have been a teacher and did not know much about Dr. King. He continues to be an example of responding to the hero’s journey! He answered the call. Something you and I are doing. God’s Blessings!
