Master Key Experience – Week 8
Have I Become a Member of a Cult?
Here are a few definitions I found of what a cult is: a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister; a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing. Synonyms: sect, denomination, group, movement, church, persuasion, body, faction. The term cult usually refers to a social group defined by its religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs, or its common interest in a particular personality, object or goal. Wikipedia
This post has been in a draft stage for almost a month now. Honestly, I had been asking myself this question since I started the Master Key Experience eight(?) weeks ago now: have I become a member of a cult? I don’t know! I wish you could hear the inflection in my voice when I actually say this to myself. According to the definition(s) above, I guess I may have! And it’s not necessarily a bad thing, but… I still don’t have peace about it.
Tell me again, Why are we here?
The purpose for my taking this journey was to find another way to receive more blessings in my life. For the first few weeks of the course I was very excited. I thought I had found “the Holy Grail!” Every day I looked forward to the multiple daily readings and affirmations, attending the weekly webinars, watching the video for that week- I thought surely I was headed in the right direction.
But over the last few weeks, it seems like it has become more of a voyage than just a simple journey. Most of the time, when I looked off towards the horizon, all I saw was ocean, no land. And metaphorically speaking, I’ve been getting a little seasick.
Most of what I’ve read and listened to I had heard before, but hadn’t really stopped and thought about it very hard. Now that I have, it makes good sense, for a while. But then doubt creeps back in my mind (the “old blueprint” in my subconscious), and it becomes so difficult to accept these new thoughts.
I’ve already posted about keeping promises, and quitting. I don’t want to go through all that again (please)! Would it be okay if we just take a break from this particular journey/voyage for a while? Can we stop and rest, then pick back up where we are now, but at a different time? These last few weeks have been tiresome, and rest sounds good.
