MKMMA WEEK 12: I built a Village for 100 Children this week!!

Every year in December I have been completing a ritual that for some reason last few years I have procrastinated on completing…but this year I have given it new meaning and the experience was magical!  Week 12 of the Master Key is breathtaking and I applied the knowledge from the last 12 weeks to this astonishing development…I built a Village for 100 Children this week!!!  An enchanted place where neglected children will live and realize dreams…

VILLAGE XMAS 9

 

It’s a snowy day and the children are all out and about in the snow, making preparations for an enchanted evening by the fireplace or carolling at the doorstep of each others homes.  Some will bake cookies and others will huddle together and read books and bring their holiday dreams to life…there is a lot going on in the village today and soon a visitor will come, bringing love and happiness to the children as they sleep dreaming and thinking of nothing but positive thoughts.Part 12 of the Master Key suggests that knowledge does not apply itself, we as individuals must make the application, and the application consists of fertilizing the though with a living purpose.  If you concentrate in silence on your thought and infuse it with love, it is the feeling that imparts vitality to thought.  Feeling is desire, and desire is love.  Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.  Are you getting confused?  How does this fit into the village that I built this week?  Let me explain…

Every year for almost 18 years I have been building a miniature village for my wife at Christmas time.  The astonishing Anna is my wife and each year I have added something new to the village.  Soon the massive undertaking every year became a chore and as time went on I began to procrastinate…the meaning of what was once love and giving soon became quite different.  I dreaded putting up the village because it became work…or least that is what I let my thoughts tell me.  All of that changed forever this week!!  Many of you know that my definiteness of purpose in part includes building a legacy fund to help neglected children and also to give back to others financially through special projects.  Those special projects would include building a village that would be a place for children to come and realize their dreams that they never had…

VILLAGE XMAS 3

This is the piece of land I found to build the village this week.  After cultivating it and spreading the snow evenly around the site, I began assembling the village.  It was a massive undertaking but each step of the way had new meaning.  Each piece I assembled had me imagining and dreaming of those children that would soon inhabit the village.  The time started moving quickly as I built one piece, one stone at a time.  As I thought about these children my heart grew big and I started to get vibrations of love that I can’t explain.  I kept building and building and every piece seemed to just fit right.  There was nothing that could stop me from my goal and during the building I could not feel any negative thoughts…only astonishing thoughts of the future village that would be part of my legacy for children.

VILLAGE XMAS 5It was now sunset and the village was coming to life.  The children were moving in with their yule logs and trinkets…many were snuggled warm in their touques and gloves.  The village began to glow and one by one each family moved in over the evening.  The lights in each house illuminated and I could tell that special things were starting to happen.  As I saw the village come to life, a part of my DMP was manifesting before me.  I couldn’t believe the sensations that I was feeling and the thoughts that I was experiencing were transformational.  You can probably see by now that this village was real…and I’ll reveal now the incredible breakthrough I had with this next picture…

There it is.  You see, every year in my dining room I set out the pieces of this village on my table and this year, I changed the meaning of it all.  Using imagination I connected this village in my thoughts to my heart…to the love that I wanted to give to children of the world

VILLAGE XMAS 2 and somehow I was overtaken with this idea to turn this village into the village for the children.  You see, I have been building this village for them over 18 years and when I infused my thinking with the love and picture of the children inhabiting the village…it became real.  The purpose changed.  Building it wasn’t about just my Anna, it was about my dream…it was connected to my DMP that I am manifesting over the next few years.  Each piece of the village as I put it together today had meaning.  Each moment I was spending doing this was pure joy.  In fact, when I finished the village this year, I called my daughter in to put the finishing touches on it with the snow and I had noticed that it took me just 1 hour to assemble the village.  In all the other years it had taken me hours, and the time seemed to go on forever.  The tasks seemed painstaking and only a chore.  Ahhhh…but not this year.  This year the project was full of love, it had a purpose that was connected to my future purpose and each step of the building process, I couldn’t wait to affix the next piece.  That’s why it only took me an hour!  To some this story may seem odd, to some it seems like a fairytale.  To me it is real.   Each day now as we get closer to Christmas, I have a ritual where

VILLAGE XMAS 7I visit the village each morning and night.  I sit and think and visualize the children playing, laughing, smiling…the feelings of love fill my heart when I see all the moving parts of this place working together in harmony.  It feels like going off somewhere into a dream world of miniature life where only pleasure exists.  And now the 100 children have a place to live forever.  There is no turning back now for me because every year I must persist and keep building the next village and the next village until all my children in the world experience this place.  The mind is an incredible thing, and having the power to apply the knowledge so the thought becomes a living purpose is the best Christmas present anyone could give me this year!!!  I am looking forward to starting Master Key Week 13 tomorrow.

    Tommy, I was thrilled by your story, it is beautiful and exciting at the same time! It also perfectly conveys your point about the difference between a simple thought and a thought infused with love. Thank you for this very inspired post.

    Tom this is incredible! You told me a little about this a couple of months ago at Simple7 in San Diego, and now watching you build it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for the inspiration, I may just have to do the same!

    Wow this is an AMAZING post! I could feel your DMP coming at me through the screen! You have completely transformed your “chore” into something so amazing, so powerful! Every time you look at that little village, it brings up your DMP and all those thoughts and feelings come rushing in. Wow. You have transformed your dream into reality!!! Maybe we should all make our DMP models!!!

    Tommy it is amazing how you can take a clinical study on how the mind works and intertwine it in magic and touch our hearts in a very profound way. May you and yours have a very merry Christmas.

    Tommy; I am simply close to tears. Christmas Day is over and I am simply exhausted from the “work” that has been done in the past 6 days. I thought I was immune from the old blueprint, but I was wrong. I was surprized to observe how it reared it’s head. Reading your blog post has humbled me tremendously. Your blog post has stirred gratitude within me and has brought me back on track. I now know with all my heart what I need to do. Thank you again for your heartfelt contribution. Blessings to you, Anna and all your loved ones for a Blessed Christmas Season.

    Love this!!! I used to build a village for my mother when I was in college and high school. Ours was on the baby grand tucked away in the living room which I pass as I went to my room upstairs. Each year, I’d sit and decide what to put where. Since I have left my mother has been building it year after year in living tribute to my sister and I whether we are able to come back for the holidays or not. I will be forever touched by this, your post. Please know, each time I see her village, I will think of you and I will knowingly feed into your dream becoming a reality. Thank you for sharing!
