The Most Precious Experience in Life
I just spent two fantastic and intense weeks in a kinder version of real life — full of friendship, family gatherings and long walks in a beautiful nature.
I started organizing such events just after my discovery of the Master Key Experience (MKE), and since then, the first half of November is one of the many periods of the year I dedicate to friends and family gatherings. During these periods, I do many great things I could have barely dreamed of many years ago, while I was still struggling in the “rat race”.
This November, I spent five days with my friend Daniel to help him raise his physical condition and training until he can achieve his dream of climbing a mountain of 4000 meters high.
This goal may seem quite ordinary to people in good physical condition, but for Daniel it is HUGE!
When I met him for the first time 15 years ago, he was walking on crutches with difficulty and his weight was above 250 pounds.
Five years later, he got rid of his crutches and he told me that his dream would be to climb to the summit of the Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe.
I took him seriously and made him the promise that when he would be ready to go, I would go along with him. I also sent him a picture of him on the summit of Mont Blanc (Photoshop is a great tool to build dream images 😊).
Last week, I walked with him every day in the beautiful hills surrounding my home, and the third day, he did his longest walk ever, more than 10 miles in a mountain terrain.
He left tired but proud of himself, with his dream on fire and, for the first time, a specific time frame for his climbing.
Our hearts were full of joy and sparkling energy when we hugged each other for goodbye.
During the other week, my daughter and her family spent a full holiday week at my home…Could you imagine the happiness to live during a week many hours per day of high quality time with the people who are the dearest to your heart?
This is PRICELESS…
And exactly what I understood during my first year of the MKE training program.
The Distinction between Knowledge and Practice
Of course, understanding it was one thing, but putting it into practice was another – much more challenging – thing. That’s where the MKE program came into play, as it had been specifically designed for this purpose: to help anyone with a strong desire to put knowledge into practice!
Because when it comes to changing important beliefs, most of the time invisible to our conscious mind and preventing us to live our life at the fullest, we have to do it by ourselves, but we cannot do it alone, and practice is key.
A Kinder Version of Real Life as an MKE Guide — Year 8
I am now in my eighth year as a guide in the MKE program and in the second year of teaching the French version of it. I have only started to realize the awesome scientifically-based framework and contents of the 24 lessons that compose this training.
Nothing is there by accident and the smallest ingredient is necessary for the functioning of the whole. Tt is like a watchmaker’s clock: take out the smallest gear train and the clock doesn’t show the exact time anymore.
That’s why it is so crucial, as a student, to put faith into every single practice the MKE is inviting us to engage in.
Because the Old Blueprint – the set of subconscious, invisible beliefs that are conducting our behaviors, hence our entire life – is incredibly difficult to reach and to change at will, until we have learned how to do it.
And this can hardly be done without the help of the entire MKE framework, which does not only account for the contents of the 24 lessons, but also for the introductory videos, the Alliance, the high positive energy of the teachers, the constant support of the Guides and Staff, and more!
All these elements are necessary to allow the incredibly high rate of success of the program for the members.
Take anyone of these elements out, and the success rate would fall like a stone. By the way, this is the exact explanation for the disastrous results of most programs by the most reputable self-help gurus everywhere on the planet.
The Purpose of Challenges
Does that mean there are no challenges for the members who engage in the MKE adventure?
Of course there are challenges, as without them, the program itself would be useless.
In fact, it is the very goal of the program to CREATE the conditions for the members to meet the challenges that will help them to progress.
How could they progress through these challenges?
By finding a healthy way to overcome them. This is called “experience”, exactly like in the real life.
There is however a big difference between the MKE and the real life: in both cases, the challenges are real and produced by the Old Blueprint, but the MKE is way more tolerant and supportive than the real life when a wrong decision is made in response to any challenge!
Real Life is unforgiving by Law.
What I mean by this is that Real Life forces us to take 100% responsibility of every single decision we make, even if we make it unconsciously or by default.
For example, Mary has an urgent issue with her child, and it happens in the same time as a key interview she needs to do for a new job. If she decides to skip the interview, its game over, she won’t have the job. She may try to postpone the appointment, but most of the time, it won’t work and she won’t have a second chance.
On the other hand, if the same issue happens while Mary has planned the revision of her DMP and send it to her Guide within the allowed timeframe, it will still be ok to send it 24h after the deadline, at least for once.
More importantly, she will also be offered the time and opportunity (through the interactions with her Guide and other members of the MKE) to realize that there are other ways to solve her family issue than to sacrifice the set up of her DMP.
The Meaning of the “Refusal of the Call”
Not taking that opportunity is called (in the MKE language) “the Refusal of the Call”.
The fact that Mary takes it or not is totally in her hands, and will make the difference between failure and success of her MKE experience. More tragically, in case of refusal, it will mean the difference between her capacity to grow into the wonderful person she really is and the one who is indefinitely struggling with the same obstacles.
If you are involved in the MKE program and you are in front of a challenge, whatever its severity, which is “inviting” you to set aside all or part of your MKE practices “for a while”, just know with 100% certainty, NO EXCEPTION, that it is your Old Blueprint (i.e. the invisible programs in your subconscious mind) which is trying to push you off track towards the “Refusal of the Call”.
You will meet the same obstacles in the MKE program and in the Real Life.
In 100% of the cases, it will be easier for you to solve them in the scope of the MKE program, and your reward, if you succeed, is that you will most probably never meet these same challenges again in the real life!
Think about it!
