Persistence as it relates to The Knowledge of Cause and Effect, Week 10, MasterKey

If I persist I will win.  — Og

It seems to me that my way of persisting takes on one dimension of “Do it Now” that is often accompanied by anxiety.  My way is leading to unnecessary exhaustion, a sense of chaos and scattered urgency.    Getting to calmly and focused  persisting, also allows for a timely sit, a drink of water, self-care or playful diversion.  This is not a practice of mine, well maybe, once in a while.  Those moments are more satisfying and more effective.

Cause and Effect is something I am pondering.  This area needs a lot of consideration in social interactions.  Then I think of other areas, like illness, environmental toxicity, political climate…or the larger climate.

Health Issues… one of my PPN’s is True Health.  I am taking a lot of steps to assist in my health…  relatively active and persistent in some of the areas but ignoring or diminishing other areas.

I often think, when I get to Kauai I will do all these things different.  Now, getting through this stressful move will provide for making better decisions.  Then I think, what we do in times of stress is also defining.   Clearly a lot to ponder.

I would REALLY like to hear others thoughts and considerations.

  1. Greetings Elaine, don’t be too hard on yourself. I think all of us who are still here in MKMMA, are still here because we care and take our responsibilities seriously and that comes with a lesser or greater degree of anxiety. I think to face our duties with a degree of emotional balance and ease is a great goal for us. Now, throw in a move? you’re asking a lot of yourself….Sometimes when I get bogged down with the urgency of the immediate, I try to back out my perspective to 30000 feet and look at all of it from there. It seems to work. God Bless your journey!


    • Thank you Dennis. This was a good thing to read this morning. The 30000 ft. perspective is helpful. I am going to use it today and the next few weeks.


  2. Enjoy your posts Elaine.
    I wonder if “I often think, when I get to Kauai I will do all these things different” is really the proper mindset?
    I can appreciate your “dilemmas”.
    But I have always tackled a problem “now” BUT only one at a time and stay focused through completion. My wife is the same. We do not Multitask or Multi-Think, since two objects cannot occupy the same space.
    this simple lifestyle has rewarded me since first embarking on the The Master Key Journey in 1960.
    I believe our current culture has influenced so many in the wrong direction.
    I am assured all of your targets will be met, BUT maybe “do It Now” can be managed more easily?

    • I actually agree with you, just not doing it!! It will be interesting today to have a full focus on one thing when there are 30 things in a day, some very short tasks. If I just put my full focus on each small one it would be helpful. My mind keeps wandering off into the other 29, which is not helpful. Thank you Chuck.


      • Elaine,
        Have you set a daily calendar with certain, regular tasks always completed by “such a time”?
        Then earmark time slots for the one or two New or Continuing tasks.
        One member of my Mastermind Member writes, everyday at a set time, 4:30 AM to 6:30 AM and allows nothing else to interfere. We are in Control!
        Why are there 30 things?
        Other than “life sustaining activities”, we need very few “projects” daily
        Here is a quick video I made 5 years ago

      • 30 things, not because it is my style, but because I have closed down a practice, a house, and have major business, legal and other stuff to do by the the time my lease is up December 16 and I fly and move to Hawaii on December 18. It has been intense. Other than current life circumstances, I will be doing a few things a day. I can hardly wait. Right now I have no choice, other than that I did choose the deadline. Now it is a matter of no return, and I am happy about that ! I honor your advice, Chuck, and it is very sound, just know that these circumstances will pass very soon. Then I can and will put your advice into action.


  3. Elaine…thanks for your honesty…well…I’ve actually felt just like this! I think we all have! I agree with Chuck and Dennis and yet I love the aspect we have to observe and really understand…why did I think that? or this?
    Our past is a part of us! A Good Part…it has brought us to the Master keys at this time! Ever wonder why?
    For me…I’m changed! A year ago…I started a process and I’m different today…and the Master Keys have just nailed it home the last 10 weeks!
    I Persist and I Win! I LOVE THIS STUFF!

  4. Well for me personally, I must obtain balance. I am very aware of myself and notice easily when I begin to get the notion of anxiety. I honor my feelings and do my best to concentrate in the NOW. I find that when my mind wonder on things in the future where uncertainty lurks I begin to bring about feelings of fear. However I just do my best to not linger there in that emotional state for too long. We are all in this journey together….you are doing a great job 🙂

    • Since we cannot control “Circumstance”-a condition or fact that affects a situation-Webster, we can Control how we allow the Circumstance to affect us.
      We just lost our 11 year friend, FLO (with us 24/7/365, since we always a have worked at home) to quick onset cancer.
      The emptiness was huge and Shirley and I were “non-productive” for a couple days.
      BUT we analyzed the Facts, drew up Plan of Action and applied energy and found another of God’s Creatures that needed us as much as we needed her.
      Mindset changed almost instantly as LACY ran into the house and figured out it was HERS. ~~smile


    • Personally I don’t think of overpowering or destroying circumstances or negative feeling, etc. Observing and calmly taking action where it is needed is my current goal. Just a thought.

  5. I remember moving (12 times in my first 18 years). Dad would get stressed and angry; Mom hated it (she’s more of a homebody) but took it in stride, calmly moving from task to task. She knew what needed to get done and in her cheerful optimistic way made sure it happened.
    Take a breath. I know that you know what needs to get done, and I know that you know the order you need to do it in. You DON’T need the peptides that come with being stressed – you really don’t. Let ’em go. You are whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy, and you can handle the MKMMA exercises and obligations, your work, and this move with power, grace and equanimity.
    Pullin’ for ya!
