Judge us by the Company we keep!
Some mornings ago, after completing my walk,
I struck up a conversation with Linda B, one of a
group of early morning walkers.
In the course of our chat, Linda B began to tell
me about something called The Golden Key . Ever
since she had first read about it in a small book by
Emmett Fox, she has been using it to address chal-
lenging situations in her life, with great success.
"Whenever you meet difficult people or situations
in your life, Golden Key them and let it go," she
told me. "Somehow things open up. But you have
to release it when you say it, don t dwell on it. Don t
keep saying please, please ."
She told me to try it and advised that at first, I
should apply it to simple things. "Test how effective
it is by starting with small things in your life which
seem difficult, like finding a parking space. Instead
of getting frustrated, Golden Key it, make a circle in
the parking lot and when you come back there will
be a space."
That day I Golden Keyed many things, parking
spaces included, and in each situation, successful
results were immediate. I began Golden Keying
bigger situations, with similar victory.
How to say it: "I Golden Key ___________________"
(fill in the blank).
The example of the Golden Key is interesting in
light of recent frustrations and unfortunate losses
experienced by Tobago peeps who have been unable
to get the ferry or a flight to Trinidad for important
These cases have included people with medical
issues who are unable to get to Trinidad in a timely
fashion (or at all) for treatment . . . people who have
had to miss family funerals in Trinidad ... someone
who was unable to take his dog for emergency eye
surgery in Trinidad ...
Recently a Venezuelan couple booked to spend
their vacation at Castara Retreats. They had flown
to Trinidad, only to have to return to Venezuela due
to their inability to get a connecting flight to Toba-
"It is terrible. It is really, really terrible!" one frus-
trated woman told me as we discussed the issue.
"Recently I tried to book a flight days in advance for
a business matter in Trinidad .... and I still couldn t
get a flight! Then we had to go to Trinidad yesterday
for a funeral. There were delays ... to go and to return!
We were two hours late for the funeral and, on top
of that, we were late to return for our Heritage
rehearsals that evening. And there are no apologies
or explanations on the ground. You just have to wait!"
In the absence of any swift alleviation of this prob-
lem, one may wonder if a technique as simple as the
Golden Key could be useful.
Of course Linda B. was able to give an example
of success in that department:
"We were having difficulty at the port to get back
to Trinidad," she told me. "While one member was
inside negotiating, I was outside Golden Keying.
There were so many people ahead of us, but next
thing you know, after our negotiator had spoken with
an officer, our name was called and everything went
without a hitch. We were able to get the boat. There
was only one boat working."
Try it as Linda B. advises: "Make it a habit that
whenever you experience something difficult in your
life you Golden Key it and let it go. Don t dwell on
it. It s a faith-based thing. It will show up when it s
The T&T Express and T&T Spirit stand side by side at the port in Scarborough.
