Week 2 was interesting in that I am learning new skills, relearning some old skills and busting down some barriers to learning. The number one thing to break through of course is Ego, lay it down, stop trying to make me right, stop the effort of making things look the way I want them. Just allow the process to deconstruct and reconstruct and build the enlightenment understanding for me. It is much like my golf swing, if I fight for control and power its off I go for a long walk searching for a lost ball. If I relax and allow the club to do the work and swing in harmony with the mechanics of nature boom ‘nice shot’ and I get to enjoy the game. The major barriers to learning anything is the statement “Oh I know that” or “yeah I heard or read about that before” the simple answer is ‘Oh really then you are now perfect!?’
Week 3 has begun so abruptly and going so fast for me it is amazing. I am getting so clear on my ‘Definite Major Purpose’ and rewriting it over and over is no longer a chore but a joy! I am rewriting my future history here and the more I become clear and precise the more enthusiastic and energized I become. Before it was an exercise in writing out goals and wants but now it is so much more than that, it is me becoming the me that I already am! Knocking off all the dirt and cement and camouflage I have plastered over myself to protect me from realizing and being my true self.
Marianne Williamson said it best in the quote “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.” I am beginning to see this vividly now.
From Haanel, Part 3: “You have found that the individual may act on the Universal, and that the result of this action and iteraction is cause and effect. Thought, Therefore is the cause, and the experiences with which you meet in life are the effect.”
As George Bernard Shaw so eloquently put it – “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” So Powerful, So true!
We are living the life we have created in our own mind. So, again as Haanel writes, “Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be!”
Your life is as you make it and the world you greet is a reflection of you. Like the story of the fella working in the country store when a passerby walked in and asked “What kind of people you got livin around here abouts?” “Well, What kind a people are you used to where you come from?” returned the store keeper. “Oh they are the meanest, stubbornest nosy bunch of pains in my backside you ever did meet!” The store keeper thought for awhile then replied “Well sir, I suppose that just about describes the kind of folks you are going to meet in these parts too” so with that the traveler said “yeah I thought so, I’ll keep going then.” I guess you get the moral of the story by now! As Anais Nin said “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
Check out the Golden Buddha video today it really reflects how I feel about myself!
I love this #MKMMA experience!
Enjoy Life! This could be the only one we get!
