Week 12 was a week of really being thankful and grateful to still be alive and well in this course. When I started this course way…. back… in September (seems like a century ago), I wondered what it was going to be like, feel like, staying immersed in this course for 6 months. Was I going to give up? How would the folks closest to me react? Would I cave in to external pressure, circumstance, or simply my old self telling me that this is useless? But “even now and then it might be slightly hard to tell, but I’m still alive and well (words from Johnny Winter’s song Still Alive and Well). This is what I’m looking at. I always keep in the back of my mind a passage from scroll 2 that says ” I welcome obstacles for they are my challenge”. Now all of that sounds good but, to really apply that passage to my everyday life is a horse of a different color. A friend of mine who I talk to and Mastermind with has been a blessing in disguise for me. We talk about a journey that both of us are experiencing laden with all kind of obstacles to be overcome, and remarkably are going thru some similar things. What astonished me about myself was how I was able to explain to him in bits and pieces ( had to keep it simple) about this fantastic course that I’m a part of. I was talking to him as though I had become this expert when it comes to understanding cause and effect (the world within and the world without). I then really started to realize how far I have come since that first day in September. Being of service to someone else, expressing gratitude to that Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent force, believing in my dreams, desires and wants that are also beneficial to others, has become a top priority for me these days. Upon seeing how much of an impact that this practice of being of service to others has on people, and how Powerful this practice really is, shows me how people will respond to you like a magnet! By talking full accountability for my actions shows me that I am truly the captain of my ship. I feel all the wonderful dormant things that are within me coming alive and are truly well in my mental being. Upon making this discovery I reflect on the sentence in Lesson 12 of the Masterkey that states: “You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do”. I was reviewing some of the blogs that I had previously posted and came across an inspirational video that I included in the blog itself. The video shows a lot of famous successful people who had discovered that Universal force that cleared a path for them to achieve the success that they are currently enjoying. Only through idealization, visualization, constant persistence, and seeing themselves already achieving their goals did their success manifest into the world without! That really sealed the deal for me. That was enough evidence to prove that everything that I do and practice is the real deal. I’m reposting this video because I thought it was so powerful! This one big sentence says it all: “Now realize your unity with omnipotence;get into touch with this power, come into a deep and vital understanding, appreciation, and realization of the fact that your ability to think is your ability to act upon the Universal Mind, and bring it into manifestation, realize that it will meet any and every requirement; that you have exactly the same potential ability which any individual ever did have or ever will have, because each is but an expression or manifestation of the One, all are parts of the whole, there is no difference in kind or quality, the only difference being of one degree. Wow! if they can do it, so can I! This is why I
believe why it’s so important to always be Alive and Well.
