This week of Thanksgiving for me has been a week of compromise and discovery. I’m still mired in this everyday task of stringing together 7 days of no negative thoughts successfully. It’s been 2 days then start over again. For the sake of creating a harmonious atmosphere, I’ve had to scale back some of my tasks because had I not, it would have created a not so pleasant an atmosphere. Wow, so many things to do at this time of the year! One truth that’s said in the beginning of Masterkey lesson 9 is that “my fancies and ambitions may be thwarted at every step, but my inmost thoughts will find expression just as certainly as a plant springs from the seed” ( paraphrasing a little). Heck, this is the first and last time I’ll enter my blog this late. As I’m writing this blog I feel myself returning back to my now normal self. What I was able to do is rely on the more passive ways to bombard subby. Everytime I’m out and about, I identify shapes and attach my smart goals to them, listen to my own soundtrack, repeat my affirmations, the 15 minute sit ( I missed 1). Was it enough? By the standards that I have now set: NO. But I managed to string along some sort of consistency. After I read my DMP and Press Release, and did a sit visualizing these 2 components of my future self I was so excited at what I imagined and believed to by my destination in the future ( Law of Growth). It was a feeling of sheer ecstasy, joy and the true fact that nobody can take away these truths and facts from me. I can now link certain passages from the BPB, GS, DMP, MASTERKEY lessons, POA, 7 DAY MENTAL DIET. All of them being integral parts of the whole. None by themselves can be a stand alone part I can just focus on only. I liken it to being a chemical equation, for example: H2,0. ( 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part Oxygen), Without them being combined together we have no water. What an amazing truth and discovery for me! The other thing that I hold of extreme value is how unconsciously integrating just the passive aspects of these tasks can ultimately become unconscious thoughts and actions woven into the fabric of my everyday life ( the Law of Practice). Substituting a negative thought with some sort of wonderful past experience or visualizing my new reality is just but one of many. All these things can be done effortlessly ( Law of Substitution). Let’s face it, sometimes I might not be able to perform all the certain tasks at hand due to certain situations, but if I am faithful, trusting, and fully engaged at creating a certain demand to subby, anything is possible. Also not looking at how things are, but what they’ll be in the future. Now I’m starting to see the payoff of just doing simple tasks without even thinking about doing them. How small things evolve into bigger things, projects, and subby having no say in these matters at all. Now Subby becomes the servant of my self directed commands. Everything that I’ve expressed in this blog is what I’m discovering about how the Law of Growth operates. It’s one of the immutable Laws of the the universe that only works if I perform the necessary steps. Every step I take whether it be what I think is a step forwards or backwards is a step further into the realm of self discovery. One thing that I know is that the same discoveries that I make while I’m practicing on my craft (I’m a musician: I play guitar and bass) that are accompanied with feelings of joy and wonder and awareness, which evoke an awareness of how much I don’t know what I don’t know, also correlates with my experiences in my fantastic movie about my journey in MKMMA. I didn’t realize I that me experiencing certain feelings and awareness while I was practicing were actually by products of Universal Law. Being an Observer of myself reveals critical information related to my relationship with the Laws of Nature and the Universe The only thing that can stop me are only the limitations I perceive as real.😁
Okay, and Yeah, this ain’t about the movie starring Pat Morita (Karate Kid), and Jay Leno. This is more about the Good 😀Bad 🤬and 😖the Ugly ( and not one of Clint East wood’s flicks, ha…ha..ha… at least I’m trying to be a little humorous), all bumping heads and causing violent collisions 🚕🛺🚙 between one another this week. Now I’m going to start off with the Bad🤬. Now I know I’m not supposed to watch any TV for a week. So What do ya think I did? Well Monday night, I became Rip Van WInkle (you remember him from our reading of the 7 day mental diet), and I took that solemn vow of teetotalism, “just…. let me take an itsy bitsy peek at Monday night football“. I would say maybe about 20 minutes, and at the same time trying to convince myself “oh well this won’t count”. Then all of the sudden I could hear this buzzer 🔊going off in my head telling me, “start over dude”. DAG NABIT, I gotta START over again. Okay so I’m really getting ahead of myself a bit because actually the Ugly😖 took center stage first. This is the reason why I turned into good ole Rip. My collision course went into action over… shall I say a ” disagreement over what the heck is a dreamboard? What are all those shapes about? and is this some sort of scam for money or, do these shapes you have on the wall represent something evil? So what did I do? Lost control of my emotions thus manifesting anger and resentment. I said,” oh no it’s not what you think, you just don’t understand” (then there’s that buzzer 🔊again going off in my head again). Dammit I HAVE TO START OVER AGAIN. After the smoke clears in my head eventually, I realized that I commited a double whammy negative act!!! Now the Good😁: I eventually recounted the events that happened and was actually happy to realize that I’m really becoming an acute observer of myself. I remember reading in the Essay by Emerson, “your weaknesses become your strengths” . Also when I can look at these situations and find humor in them at my expense, it reminds of beads of water running harmlessly down my raincoat and falling to the ground. Now I can see that being totally committed to the 7 day Mental diet, that old me is actually the disruptive force that’s interfering with the new me! I mean when I started on my journey, ( now mind you, I finished the course in it’s entirety before) it was the other way around. My old self represented what I thought was my normal way of thinking.😁 Whew.😲….what an amazing discovery. Forget about how many times you have to start over. It’s about all the major benefits that come out of this seemingly arduous mission. You get an opportunity to clear a path to receive that omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent amazing power of the universe! Of course there are many other benefits that are astounding too, but this revelation just smacked me in the face. I can’t help it, but it just makes my whole body tingle🤸🏽♂️ just thinking about this true fact. So it’s like I’m moving up and onwards🚀 looking down at my old self on the ground looking like a small speck getting smaller and smaller. Also as bad as it seemed going through these uneasy set of experiences this week they only served as a launching pad🚀 to dig deeper and deeper and deeper. Whatever I might have been lagging in slightly concerning the exercises, it is of the upmost importance now to execute every nuance of the exercises that will constantly bombard subby. It’s like I have this old closet in my house🏡 that I never got around to cleaning out thoroughly for years. But baby, when I get finished cleaning this closet out, there won’t be one speck of dirt, dust, or grime left. Totally pristine. It’s been quite a long day and all of it being all good. I’m tapped out. Later Folks😀
WEEK 7 has been a week filled with developing the skill of concentration ,attention and concentrated thought. It seems like things are happening in a way that are forcing me to commit to start paving the way to envisioning and living a new reality. The first thing I’m noticing is that I no longer have anything to entice me to deviate from my journey. Since I’m committed to keeping my promises this revelation has put the responsibility squarely on me to be accountable for anything that I do or think about on a daily basis. The 7 day mental diet is forcing me to be accountable for my thoughts and actions. Everytime I feel like I might be losing any momentum I get this uneasy feeling of not giving it 100% effort. To be more specific, I observe everything I do and encounter during the day, how I control my thoughts, what mental and emotional state I’m experiencing at any particular moment. I”m starting to evaluate things differently, and feel the surge of confidence and certainty growing in me, I’m more in control of my belief and confidence of what’s in store for my future self. I’m entering a new world filled with wonders and realities that I never imagined could be attained before. Is it exhausting? sure it is, but it’s totally worth experiencing the process because I know what the payoff will yield. Writing down a plan of action is making me stronger and strengthening my idealization and visualisation and is awakening the power in me that I already possess. It’s truly an amazing journey to discover an amazing fantastic reality created by none other but me and revel in the fact that I know this to be a true scientific and spiritual fact. The Law of Substitution is a very powerful Law that will protects me and empowers me from thinking or dwelling on negative falsehoods that I might consciously accept as being true.
Well this week for me has been a week of ratcheting up everything to a different level. Finally, my DMP is close to completion as I’m rounding out the home stretch in which they’re just a few minor adjustments that have to be done. Thank God for my certified guide. They are truly great individuals who have accepted the challenge of giving what they have to others! I’m truly humbled and grateful to have taken this course again and totally get a different perspective about everything this time around. Like the saying goes, “honesty is the best policy” which is really an understatement for me. When I ask myself the question “what’s holding me back from the life I truly desire?” The answers are becoming more clearer now. One thing I know is having complete fidelity to all the exercises is of monumental importance thus making them become a part of my being totally. Staying persistent and focused is of the utmost importance on creating a clear path of sheer bliss and accomplishment that prepares me to be friends with and accept my future self. Yeah there’s still a lot of that competitive nature bubbling inside of me. I had the bad habit of comparing my success to what others measure as being successful, but now that energy and thought has taken on a different positive form of energy that has transformed itself into a challenge for myself to myself and has that same dynamic energy as my competitive and insecure nature. Thus forcing creativity, imagination, poise, concentration, inductive reasoning to the forefront. Now my responsibility lies with claiming them as mine, and choosing them as my constant companions forever. This is truly an “offer I can’t refuse”. Failure no longer is my payment for struggle. Since I completed this course in it’s entirety the first time around, this time’ I can really focus on some of the things with a different consciousness and understanding. HUGE FACTOR. I think that I was unconsciously infected with the dreaded “Red Pencil Syndrome”. Completing the course was an accomplishment. It was neatly tucked away in my mind. I prided myself too much on completing the course because it was a very difficult challenge, and when I got finished, there was this big sigh of relief and accomplishment (“whew I finished, I’m the champ! Yeah!”)…..didn’t realize I was still just tilling the soil and still in the process of creating new furrows to let the new stuff grow and take root forever. Guess what? I’m glad I MADE THAT DISCOVERY. Yeah, with the elections and every other weird stuff going on, I’ve struggled a bit when it comes to having no opinions. Becoming a hermit or recluse won’t mean anything at all…but I know with practice and consistency it will get a whole lot better. It’s good to know that when you are the observer, you can take your weaknesses and make them your strengths. Got my dictionary available as I’m reading Emerson’s’ Law of Compensation. This time around, I think it’s an amazing essay that I need to read over and over. I know that I have to be more active in the community as well as Marco Polo and I here and now am making that promise to do so. There’s nothing better than being involved in a special community of like minded individuals.
