Well it’s week 4, and as the clouds of the old blueprint are still prevalent, there are major cracks forming where I can see rays of sunlight shimmering through. I am actually seeing, feeling and hearing happiness, belief, thought, imagination, creativity, floating down a stream in my mind. I don’t intend to sound like I lost my mind but in a sense I am doing just that. I woke up this morning and lo and behold, my old blue print said “good morning, hey isn’t this such a great cloudy day”. Well I promptly disagreed, and the strangest thing happened. I could actually feel my mind physically take a shift in the direction of my new self and all the sudden I saw the beauty of the sun shinning through saying to me “yes it a great sunny day!” I’m starting to see the power that we have within ourselves that is truly amazing. I like to refer to it as the Genie in the bottle. Our wish is our command. Our minds are that magical lamp, and all we have to do is learn how to rub that Aladdin’s Lamp ( OUR MINDS) with the right thoughts with feeling, and through our practicing of good habits, we have access to that power that is infinite (wow did I actually say that?). I have read other people’s blogs and they are truly inspiring to me. I can certainly relate to the issues that they honestly express and I feel truly honored to be involved in a program that has very bright people in it. I can see how they are discovering their own “Genies in a bottle, and it is so awe-inspiring. For me self- discovery is so exciting. It’s like getting that gift at Christmas and experiencing those wonderful feelings at that moment. Well I’m done for now…..until next week.
Well it’s week 3 and I’m really feeling the heat, but the clouds are starting to disperse somewhat. You remember that movie the Clash of the Titans? Perseus represented the new way mortals started to depend more on themselves instead of relying on the Gods to help them out of their situations that they dealt with. When mortals realized that they had the power to find solutions to their various problems and stopped worshiping the Gods, the Gods eventually faded away. That’s the scenario that I’m facing right now. Because of new frontiers that are being realized by the new blueprint (Perseus). The old blueprint (the Gods) ain’t going down without putting up a titanic battle. The good thing is that the old blueprint is starting to realize that the change is inevitable. Through my persistent and conscientious efforts of controlling my thoughts, and performing the tasks that are required, I’m seeing a shift in the things I do automatically from day to day. I know that I’m just scratching the surface, but it feels good to observe subtle things changing each day that start having a compounding effect as each day passes by. I feel like Odysseus who after the Trojan War encountered a 20 year odyssey before he reached home and experienced a harmonious successful life there after. So I’m done for now…..oh by the way, I am committed to keeping my promises.
Well week 2 in MKMMA was all it could be and more for me. I’ve always been in search of that “holy grail” to really change and jumpstart my life. It has not disappointed. the exercises, tasks, reading, have all been so beneficial for me. As I stated in my week 1 blog, that cement that I was carrying around for years is slowly starting to chip away. When I submitted my first DMP, I realized (thank God) I didn’t know what I didn’t know. When it came to knowing how I was going to achieve the things I wanted, I realized all I had was a bunch of scattered thoughts that didn’t amount to that old saying, a “hill of beans”. I’ll never forget the feeling that I had after I sent my DMP in to my mentor and the reply I got back: DUMB AS A BRICK. My first initial feeling was that of my old me reacting in my negative downing myself mode, but then at the bottom of the reply it said: Much love. I thought about everything and then I suddenly started laughing, almost uncontrollably. At that point I REALIZED that all they were saying was that I needed to be more concise. I had to really focus on my thoughts! The Digital Connections crew is off the charts! What I am learning from them from the technical aspect about blogging and social media is very valuable. MANY THANKS FOLKS! I could go on and on, but this it for now until next week.
Wow! My first week in a MKMMA was certainly an interesting one that was filled with many challenges that I had to deal with. Some of the challenges that I incurred had nothing to do with the course itself, but just the challenges of dedicating time to do what is required to maintain your scholarship while going thru the course. I got a great feeling of being committed to accomplishing certain tasks while dealing with the normal things that occur during the course of the day. The webinar that I watched was fantastic and it had an immediate impact on me. The first week of training is not even completely over with and already I am experiencing major shifts in my choice of the words I use and the beginning of a different way of thinking! I’m already finding myself becoming obsessed with completing this course with a zest and fervor, that for me is quite exhilarating. It is very refreshing to be a part of something where everyone shares a common goal. I’m can see how this program will get you laser focused on what it is you’re trying to achieve in your life. If a person will just do the everyday tasks that is asked of you to do, you’ll find yourself doing things automatically that you wouldn’t have done before. The funny thing about it is that they’re not difficult tasks, but thru repetition the mind starts to carry out these tasks automatically. For me, I can see myself going thru leaps and bounds, at a fantastic pace. I feel like MKMMA is about to awaken a sleeping giant.
