Master Key Experience Week 19

My blog this week dovetails with Week 18 — doing so in a couple of ways. One I would change if only I could.

Og tells us in Scroll 5 to live this day as if it’s our last. He makes the case for burying yesterday along with tomorrow because there is nothing we can do about either.

The idea of living each day as if it’s our last carried the logical assignment to read obituaries. I met Roger through his and connected with him because of the remarkable life he lived. It was the career path I had originally chosen for myself.

In addition to the obituaries, we were to ponder the question ‘what would the person I intend to become do next?’

I tried and tried to address the question in a meaningful way, but nothing seemed right. After several hours I jokingly answered with ‘wrap up the blog and get to other tasks at hand!’

I opened my blog document this morning and saw words I don’t even remember writing. How did I lose the thought so quickly or not see it as the more philosophical answer? 

’Become what you want people to remember.’

Of course! Become what we’d want people to remember — that best version of ourselves. It’s foundational to The Master Key Experience.

I’d say Roger did that pretty well. I’m sure fond memories will live long with those who knew him.

I’m torn whether to mention the other dovetail and at the same time feel compelled. Scroll 5 has been difficult this week.

To my little grandchild — there is no answer sufficient to explain to me why you made it to the womb but were unable to join us in the world. There isn’t a hole deep enough to bury the ache in our hearts.

  1. The loss of an infant is heartbreaking. To think we will never get to know who he or she could have been leaves us questioning all that we know. But Eccl 9:11 tells us: “I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor does the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all.” Sometimes that is just the way it “is” and we go on appreciating that we have another day to live when someone else has not that privilege. Hugs.
