Master Key Experience – Week 22a


Master Of Your Emotions

The tides advance; the tides recede. Winter goes and summer comes. Summer wanes and the cold increases. The sun rises; the sun sets. The moon is full; the moon is black. The birds arrive; the birds depart. Flowers bloom; flowers fade. Seeds are sown; harvests are reaped.

All nature is a circle of moods and I am a part of nature and so, like the tides, my moods will rise; my moods will fall.

Today I will be master of my emotions.

Until I started this class, it wasn’t uncommon for me to have frequent bouts of depression. I would feel inadequate and ashamed, and not know what to do to escape from the funk. I am much better now. Don’t get me wrong, I still have those feelings now and again, but much less often.

Now I Know Why

From The Greatest Salesman in the World (Og Mandino):

Inside me is a wheel, constantly turning from sadness to joy, from exultation to depression, from happiness to melancholy.

And how will I master these emotions so that each day will be productive? Trees and plants depend on the weather to flourish but I make my own weather, yea I transport it with me.

How Might I Ask?

And how will I master my emotions so that every day is a happy day, and a
productive one? I will learn this secret of the ages: Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.

Henceforth, I will know that only those with inferior ability can always be at their best, and I am not inferior. There will always be days when I must constantly struggle against forces which would tear me down.

R2A2 – Recognize, Relate, Assimilate, Apply

And with this new knowledge, I will also understand and recognize the moods of he on whom I can call. I will make allowances for his anger and irritation of today for he knows not the secret of controlling his mind.

I will master my moods through positive action and when I master my moods, I will control my destiny.

I will become master of myself.

I will become great.

I’ve left out the details. You will find them here. Do the work, don’t cheat yourself!
