WEEK 8 KEEPING THE FAITH

Week 8 has been a true test of my faith. 4:12 in the Masterkey lesson states that “ If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; If you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; If you make up your mind to do something, let nothing, no one interfere, The “I” in you has determined, the thing is settled; the die is cast, there is no longer any argument”. This was a profound statement for me, and certainly one that I always have kept in mind. Yesterday was a total disaster when I tried to explain what it is was that I was doing and how it would be of great benefit for everyone including myself. Since my habits have changed drastically, and the shapes and colors that they noticed around the apartment, looked childish to them, they thought I had joined some occult following, and could not see any significance in what I was doing. They immediately said that they did not want to be associated in any part of this undertaking which led to a big argument. I was dismayed for a while, and I was even more perturbed because I had to start my 7 Day Mental Diet all over again!!  Then on top of that, a great opportunity presented itself to me that I wanted badly only to find out that I needed a certain amount of capital to get started which I didn’t posses. Double whammy!! Now under normal circumstances (the old me), I would have turned the TV on, watched something to take my mind off of that, and start feeling sorry for myself. But Wait! I can’t watch TV for seven days! Now I had to deal with this right now while being in the silence of a dark room all by myself. I went to sleep for a few hours and when I woke up, I said to myself, “ I’m the star of this movie. If I were watching this on TV, I would be hollering, “don’t give up now, you’re getting closer to your dream than you think!”. While watching this important segment in the movie, I would be shaking my head back and forth saying, “Pleaseeeee…. don’t give up, I’m your biggest fan, I’m rooting for you. what you’re experiencing, and the fact that you won’t give up, will inspire me to do great things!  I’ve seen countless movies where the hero or heroine is faced with what seems to be insurmountable odds, road blocks, that we don’t have clue as to how they’re going to overcome these challenges. Then what seems like divine intervention taking place, all of a sudden circumstance, or a person, event, presents itself and the hero or heroine recognizes at that moment the solution to their impasse and takes the necessary action and goes on to accomplish they’re dream. I then immediately turned on my lamp and started reading Og, my Dmp, The Guy in the Glass, index cards and my Bible. All of the sudden the negative feeling I had disappeared. I’m so thankful for understanding how to be an observer of myself at all times. I pepper myself all day with nothing but positive thoughts and concentrate on my next plan of action. As I do my everyday sit and imagine myself sitting down with a friend of my mine, telling him about all these wonderful things that I wrote in my DMP, my excitement from actually visualizing this, energizes me in a way that truly astonishes me. The more I do it, clearer the picture gets with more detail added to it each time I do my sit. My subconscious is starting to accept this thought as being true. I know this because of the way I feel and believe it. So until next time, I’m going to keep on truckin’

I STOOD UP NEXT TO A MOUNTAIN 

AND CHOPPED IT DOWN WITH THE EDGE 

OF MY HAND,

I TOOK MY DREAMS

AND MOVED THEM TO MY PROMISED LAND,

MY NEW FRIEND IS ALWAYS WITH ME,

MY OLD FRIEND IS LIKE A SAND CASTLE

THAT DRIFTS BACK INTO THE SEA

  1. YOU.ARE.AMAZING. That was soo inspiring and REAL… that stuff happens doesn’t it -BUT you looked in your toolkit (within, DMP, index cards, etc..) and grabbed your tools and went to work! T

    hank you for posting that – it recharged me and I am proud of you my friend.

    Also, this is my FYI – the nuttier things get around me, the more I really know I am on the RIGHT track… remember in one of our earlier lessons it mentioned things would get shaky and to just hold on… you were shook, you held on and now you are back on the right track. Good for you!!!

    Keep on truckin.
