I took the 3 grand kids on a road trip last weekend to kick start their school spring break. It was just over 200 miles ( 300+ kms) and included a line up at the Canadian/USA border just south of Vancouver. It wasn’t just me heading across the border on that 1st day of spring break…the border crossing lineup was a long one.
Are we there yet? Yep, that was the question of the hour; of the day; and of the whole 3 day weekend. It didn’t matter how many times I explained the weekend game plan, the distance, the need for patience and cooperation, and the anticipated fun at the water resort called Great Wolf Lodge…none of that was considered when I was asked over and over and over again…are we there yet? or the second favourite…how much longer?
I am sure every reader has experienced these same questions and if not directly from your own kids, grand kids, or friends’ kids, you will all remember asking it yourselves when we were all kids! I believe it to be part of the human race DNA….those questions are just part of being human, I am sure of it. Some biologist will someday discover the ‘are we there yet’ gene.
So what’s this got to do with anything meaningful? Well, as our virtual Master Key class is coming to an official end….or perhaps just the REAL beginning, it made me think how similar many of us looking for life’s answers are really just like kids……sometimes for years we have been asking…are we there yet? how much longer before we find the answers? Reading good books, affirming the right stuff, staying positive, and so on and so on…..yet still asking and wondering when will we actually get there. Patience hasn’t been working and so often we don’t feel we are getting any closer to our goals.
Most of us have been there in some way or another and for those that got the answers they needed, wow, what a difference. Many of us however have been taking a step by step approach to getting “there” so to speak, and what the Master Key System has been teaching us week by week, month by month is there is no THERE! Unlike a road trip to a water theme resort to hang out and have fun, our life’s journey for answers is all an inside road trip.Incredible really. Like the wait at the border crossing, we all do in fact need patience to cross our own borders, surrender our passports to confirm who we really are, and then make the trek to our destination of CHOICE.
As I made the trek with the grand kids, and the seemingly hundreds of questions about timing and location, I know I have felt the same anxiety, impatience, boredom, and frustration with my own internal journey, using every method possible to make the time and search go faster.
As I come to the real beginning… again…I use this incredible gift of the Master Key Master Mind Alliance as my new GPS compass and cross over all the borders I built over the years and can only see a clear purposeful path and destination ahead.
It’s PLAY time now!
