Isn’t that what we all say eventually? What if all young people had the opportunity to become self directed in their thinking?
I’d have loved for my children to have had the opportunity in public schools to attend classes focussing on self directed thinking like the Master Keys.
When you see the #NothingLikeIt, you are only getting a small sense of what the Master Keys could do for you.
What ever you do, or say, you have already prepared yourself to do or say that, whether you’ve realized it or not. Our reactions are a choice for which we’ve prepped. So shouldn’t we “prep” ourselves to make decisions and choices in the direction that we want to go,do or be?
The Master Keys give the answer to being the best we can be. Many other scholars and teachers instruct the same path of reaching one’s true self. Whether you prefer the language of The Sit, Meditation, Prayer, or just quiet/lone time, it is all the same idea.
We need time to shut out the extraneous noise and distractions and focus our thoughts/thinking on just being, accepting, forgiving, giving, loving and edifying our core beliefs. So simple to say, but with practice easy to do. We reach levels of realization at different paces, all in out own time.
The photo above was taken around 1941. As you can see the pilot if giving the photographer the A-OK sign, with a big smile he’s living his dream. Of course he wished the circumstances had been different.
What this photo cannot tell you is what steps this young man took to reach this position in life. He grew up on a farm with lots of siblings. Had a team of mules at around age eight. He helped work the farm and then milked cows, selling the milk to earn money to buy a car. This was unusual as only the “rich” kids had cars in high school. He played football, but when the season ended he went out for basketball. Well that didn’t work out. The coach suggested he try track and field. So instead of staying at school that last hour, he drove to the next town about 20 miles north where there was an airfield. He took flight instruction.
He completed his training, passed his flight checks, but had to wait until he was 16 to get his license. Upon graduating at 17, he applied for and was accepted into the Army Air Corp flight training program.
I wonder what the adults thought of him during those youthful years. He reminds me of my youthful years often, and accordingly I’ve still got “a lot of learnin'” to do. At 92, he’s earned the right to comment, “Those kids, today….
