I chose Cool Runnings as my movie to watch during our off week. I’ve seen this movie several times before but watching it after being a student of The Master Key Experience, I truly understand the impact this course and movie has made in my life.
“Rise above it and learn to believe in yourself” the lyrics to the opening song surely hit me hard. After all isn’t this what the Master Key Experience has been trying to teach me since week 1?
I love the humor and spirit of lazy, crazy, sorry, no good, bug a boo, Rasta Man Sanka the push cart champion even after his cart went flying off the course. He brushed off the dirt and got back up and smiled.
I felt so sad and sorry watching Derice Banack stumble and fall after a collision during the qualifying run to represent Jamaica in the Olympics.
Derice enlists the help of a dishonored Bobsled Olympic champion Irving Blitzer who was striped of his medal for cheating by putting extra weights in the Bobsled at the XV Calgary, Alberta Canada Olympic Winter Games.
Irving played by John Candy didn’t want anything to do with starting a Jamaican bobsled team but Derice persisted and convinced Irving to manifest his dream of being in the Olympics. “Persistent practice produces perfect presentations!”
After adding sprinter Yul and affluent Junior Bevil the first Jamaican bobsled team became a reality.
The team started out as the laughing stock but because of their Team Spirit and healthy self-confidence they earned the respect they justly deserved.
I loved Junior looking in the mirror as Derice kept saying to him “tell me what do you see.” He saw pride and power because he finally realized it’s about what you tell “The Guy in the Glass” and not what others judgement upon you must pass.
The team competed and had a mishap with their sled after it broke during their final run. The team didn’t quit and carried their sled across the finish line. They were cheered and respected and realized that unity is strength.
This team took a deep look inside themselves and succeeded by using The Master Key principles of “I can be what I will to be.” The love they wanted they got and realized that if you work hard enough and want it, you will get it.
A gold medal is a wonderful thing but if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.
The team chipped away the cement that bound them, by believing that, gone are the dark clouds that had them down, because in the end they found their bright shining day. They all became the Hero in their Journey and found their golden selves.
The team was whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.
The translation of Cool Runnings is Peace be the journey, and I thank Mark J. for giving me the chance to learn from your life’s journey.
