I don’t know that this program has done much for me, as of yet, long-term, but I am grateful that doing this program has gotten me going in my business and helped me to do what I say I will do. I haven’t been perfect in everything on my promises but I’d say I’ve done pretty well.
I’ve been with Nikken 15 years. I haven’t done with it much, but am I ever glad I stuck with it. The way we do business has changed, prices are much lower, making it easier for people in the lower ranks and people just starting able to earn money right away. That, and a super mentor has taken my up-line’s place. I know as I take action I will do well. If I really want to achieve Royal Ambassador, I will.
My rough childhood experiences have helped me stick things out. In 6th grade I hung on to that pull-up bar longer in gym than any other girl in the class… mainly to spite that red-headed girl who sat next to me in school and couldn’t stand me… to prove that I wasn’t a zero. I had an advantage. My last name started with W, which meant I was last and could see how long everyone else stayed up for. Most of them dropped like flies, only lasting for a second or two. I thought they were wimps. I was no athlete. I lacked confidence. I didn’t have a single friend in my school. I was the cipher in the snow. But something sparked in me that day. Sure it hurt my hands and it was hard, but when you want something bad enough you are willing to take some pain and persevere. I lasted a full minute. Of course, little redhead said I cheated. I did not. Some people cannot stand to see people they can’t stand achieve success. It will always be that way.
Here’s a video if you want to watch it. It’s 21 minutes long. Cipher in the Snow. I watched this many times growing up and related to the boy. My home life wasn’t as bad as his, but at school, the neighborhood, and sometimes at home, I felt it. I was the quiet, uncommunicative one, even with my family, and internalized everything. We need to be careful how we treat others. After our family moved to another state as a teenager,
I saw the following in the comments and thought it was great:
“Cipher: A character  which, standing by itself, expresses nothing, but when placed at the right hand of a whole number, increases its value tenfold. We all just need to be placed at the right place. Never underestimate the number 0.”
I don’t necessarily need to be a Royal Ambassador. I don’t really have a passion for that. So, what do I want? Thinking about that comment, what I want is to be placed with a lot of other numbers, turning my past zero-self into a gazillion. I want to make a difference. I want my life to matter. I want to have friends and people who care about me. I want my family to respect me. I know that my life matters… probably more than I realize. I want to help people with their health and cause miracles to happen to others. I want to heal people. I want to bring people to Christ and to His only true church. That is what I want the most… especially for my own children.
I know that I as a daughter of God, I am capable of great things and have within me a divine power and potential. I knew this before the MKMMA. I know that as I study the scriptures, spend time in prayer and reflection, that I will gain greater insight in how to tap that potential within me.
I know that God is not some mystical, unknowing being, but a personal God who gives me answers to my prayers and grants me what I ask, when I ask in faith, if it is right. Actually, he always answers, it just might not be what I want or was expecting. He is a personal God with body, parts and passions. I do not have to be in a “sit” or meditation to get direction from God, although being still is important. I know what the Holy Ghost feels like. At times, I feel it very powerfully. I know that during a sit or reading Haanel, I do not feel it very much. I have to two to compare.
I believe that there is much truth with Haanel’s teachings but that there are also twisted truths, or untruths in it designed to have one depend on oneself and away from relying on the atonement of Jesus Christ. There is right and wrong thinking, but there is also righteousness and sin. Satin is real and is deceiving even the very elect. He mingle philosophies of men with scripture. He knows us and our weaknesses. He doesn’t first lead us to sin by telling us to do some terrible sin. It starts small and seems okay, and carefully leads us away from Christ. We are here to learn good from evil and make choices, hopefully good ones.
Throughout this course, this scripture kept coming to my mind. Note that these people did much good. I want to be on the Lord’s side more than I want the things of the world.
21 ¶Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Throughout scripture, it tells how God blesses the people when they are righteous. Sure, you could look at that as think right, in harmony with the “Universal mind” and you the law of attraction will cause you to prosper. Same sort of thing… except where your focus is. The MKMMA has much good in it. Service is good. Love is good. Gratitude is good. I’m not sure how to say all that I want to say.
It is my prayer that we will not blindly follow what one man says just because it was written a long time a go, or some unknown internal source gave it to him (or her). If we continue on the path that leads us away from Christ, we will lose the light of Christ and we will be on our own, or in some other being’s power, until the thread becomes a rope and we cannot escape, and do not even believe that we are doing anything wrong. Trust that still small voice inside of you. It is not always an old blueprint.
Wishing you peace, truth and prosperity,
