do or do not - yoda

Week 8 – Believe

do or do not - yodaI try…

not to put my attention on being sick.

Even when I am…

not feeling my best.

It’s been a tough time for me.

Since I got back from Hawaii…

I’ve been feeling poorly.


Maybe, in part.

But, really…

There is that word… think.

Many people quote Yoda from this scene in “The Empire Strikes Back” — Yoda says, “Try not… do, or do not..There is no try.”

There is a lot more in this clip than just that. It really speaks to the laws we are learning in the Master Key.

Luke gets all negative and says the task is too big. He can’t do it.

And Yoda points out his negativity.

That’s when Yoda tells him — Don’t stick your big toe in… jump in and DO IT NOW.

You can’t just TRY something and expect results. You have to DO. Or not do.

Luke tries and experiences a set back. He fails. He gives up again. His will is weak. He has lost his faith. It’s easier to sit down and complain about how hard it is than it is to keep DOing.

And Yoda tells him, size does not matter. The Universe does not care about the size of your dream. It only cares if you believe with every fiber of your being that your dream is going to happen.

For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship. ~Yoda

Luke still believes the task to be “impossible” — he walks away and sulks.

While Yoda gets it done.

Those who say it can’t be done should get out of the way of those who are doing it. ~Joel Arthur Barker

believe yodaAt the very end of this clip, Yoda makes the most profound statement. Luke says, “I don’t believe it” and Yoda tells him… “That is why you fail.”

Until we believe 100% in ourselves, in our dreams, in our Definite Major Purpose… until we REALLY BELIEVE… we are going to experience doubt… and failure… and set backs.

Does that apply to health?

I don’t know yet.

I do believe there are real forces that make me sick.

Last week, my body tested positive for C. Diff and Mycotoxins.

That makes me believe that no matter how much positive thinking I do, my body is vulnerable to toxins.

I got an air cleaner in my house and I started to feel better.

Is that because I believe in the poisons or because they are actually there.

If I believed I were invincible… would I be?

Week 7 – Imagine That

I didn’t feel like writing a blog today.

Ever have a day like that?  You are supposed to do something… and you just don’t feel like it.

What do you do?

Do you suck it up and do it anyway?  Or do you put it off?

Sometimes my own imagination scares me.  Like Ernie, in this skit.  And Bert tells Ernie, think about things you like.  You like balloons?  Think about balloons.  It’s really that simple.

Here in the middle of imagination… right in the middle of my head… I close my eyes and my home isn’t home and my bed isn’t really my bed. I look inside and discover things that are sometimes strange and new. And the most remarkable thoughts I think have a way of being true.

I remember when I was little, we used to have Sesame Street albums. This song was on one of those records and I used to lie on the floor with my eyes closed and imagine things I like.

I would travel the world!  My imagination has taken me places I haven’t seen yet… but I will!

What Would YOU Do?

So many people are afraid to say what they really imagine themselves doing.  This scene from Good Will Hunting illustrates the fear Will has of what he will actually do with his life.  He would rather make jokes than make a decision.  It’s easier to skate by and do nothing than to dig in and make a difference.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. ~Marianne Williamson

I have felt this paralyzing fear. My own dreams and my own imagination scare the stuffing out of me. Sometimes, my own power to manifest what I want in life scares me. This week’s exercise is powerful. We are to imagine we are with a friend… and we tell a story to our friend and their face lights up.

I alternated between friends. I picked Robin Williams and Sir Richard Branson. They were marvelous guests and we enjoyed our time together. We mostly discussed a project to bring clean air to the masses.  I got some great ideas from our talks.

“I think that if we could get every business person to use some of their entrepreneurial skills by adopting A problem in this world… maybe a major problem in their particular industry, a major global problem or a major national problem… we could get on top of most of the problems of the world.” ~Sir Richard Branson at 2:01

What is the problem that you would adopt?

Week 6 – Feeding My Peptides

The rush of coming in at the 11th hour and squeaking in by the deadline.

(Here I am, writing my blog at the last minute.)

I get my blog done early! I comment and share on at least 10 blogs every week.

Do it now!

I form good habits and I become their slave.

The seed of success I swallow.

I love you… and everyone.

I really do enjoy Og.

And this week’s reading reminded me of something Jesus says in the Bible:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you… If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?” Matthew 5:43-46

Jocelyn & CullenI picked a great picture for this week’s exercise too. One of my absolute favorites from when the kids were little.

I am so glad it is time for the movie poster… it was about time I redo that.

I accomplished my blue rectangle from last year’s poster. And really… as I look at last year’s movie poster… the other shapes were wishy-washy.

Being clear is so important!

Clear body, clear mind.

I had a breakthrough this week.

I have a sticky note on my computer with a domain name I bought a few months ago.

And this week, I discovered what will go on that site.

Watch for developments on
It is NOT UP YET. So don’t contact me telling me it’s not working. lol

I am so excited, I could burst with excitement.

I can picture it. I am writing it, living it, breathing it.

I will have the site up as soon as I can get it approved by corporate.

If you read my Press Release, you will see that my passion… my purpose is to help people who have been made sick by toxins… to have safe places to live.

The universe is helping me to achieve that.

We have the technology.

It’s all about technology.

I am so grateful that someone else invented it.

And it is working.

And there are testimonies and proven results.

And I am looking forward to sharing this with the world… and making the world a better place.

I am greeting each day with love in my heart!! These are the peptides I am feeding!

Week 5 – Turning the Page

book beachWhen a page is turned in a book… you can no longer see what was on the previous page… you must look forward.  Some things in life are like that too.

Sure, you can look back in the book.  You can always look back.

The question is, should you.

Looking forward, with clarity and passion…

That is where we gain the most ground.

This week we were to not give any opinions unless asked or we are an expert in the area… like if someone were to ask me my opinion on web design and techno stuff online.  Then, I could give my opinion.

book of lifeBut, only because I am an expert in those areas.

Where am I not an expert?

LOTS of things.  I found myself silent… and seeking the opinions of others.  I found myself asking, “What do you think?”  …and I found myself listening.


I am surely not an expert in parenting.  I’ve had more than 20 years of experience… but I am no expert.

I have my opinions…

But I am no expert.

Parenting teenagers is no picnic.

Parenting teenagers while having no opinion is actually… easier.

On me.

At least that’s how I feel.

It’s my opinion that causes the riff in our relationship… and when I abandon my opinion, I am left with an open mind.  It was certainly a different experience to listen without an agenda and without judgement.

book travelI don’t remember this exercise affecting me this way last year.  I am amazed at how much more I am getting out of the MKMMA this second time around.  It is certainly worth taking again and again… perhaps for a lifetime.

I form good habits and become their slave.

Tomorrow we turn the page in The Greatest Salesman in the World.

I am looking forward… looking forward to the next chapter.

In more ways than one.
