Last weeks webinar was just fantastic, and for me it signified a point in this course where all the accountability from now on falls on me. You know there’s an old saying that says, ” you can lead a horse to the trough but you can’t make him drink”. Well for over 5+ months we’ve been cleverly trained, and directed, (or setup like a naïve person who thinks that wrestling’s not staged, or the horse and the carrot thing) specifically for these crucial last weeks of our experience in this years class. Talk about watching the Karate Kid. Wow, all the sudden I got a epiphany When I completed the course the first time, it was at this point that I didn’t fully realize how critical at this juncture of course it was to advancing, or should I say, “put the icing on the cake’. Not being able to cross this hurdle kinda makes all the hard work seem useless without getting over this part of the proverbial “hump’.” This is MY “movie.” I’m the star of the show. This so serious for me, that sometimes I can just see me watching this movie about this guy (ME) whom I see that has a fantastic future ahead if only he just continue his journey, because I CAN SEE all the Greatness he has in him, just waiting to bestow miracle after miracle. It’s like I’m looking at the screen yelling, Yeah, I don’t know if could’ve dealt with all those challenges I saw you going through, but you’re making me a believer out of me. So Man,” don’t even think about stopping, just do it now!” It is at this point of my heroes’ journey that I enter what is called the abyss 😲.( scary music at this moment)in which I MAKE A DECISION to enter the unknown with some of my lingering vestiges of my old self tenaciously clinging on to me. NOW is really when I start hearing that one sentence which utters louder and…louder….and….LOUDER…….”WHAT WOULD THE PERSON I INTEND TO BECOME DO NEXT?” 😧, To me, the abyss means that you go in that place of development and uncertainty with no help or suggestions from anyone else but you. Every time I look in the mirror and recite my guy in the glass poem I’m being pushed into the next phase of my development to be the person I was meant to be. This week we were instructed to take at least 2 days, or up to 5 days if that is possible and devote those days towards going through TOTAL SILENCE. Yeah, I mean no TV, not a sound uttered from my mouth, no phone, or messaging anyone, no facebook, Nada, no nothing period. This exercise is for the sole purpose of me not being distracted by anything around me ( except nature) and just quiet my mind down from all existing noisy thoughts until I experience complete silence on the inside, period. This gives me the opportunity to fully visualize my new life, and permanently say goodbye to all past negative experiences, old thoughts, and beliefs. When that directive is accomplished I believe that that space that no longer exits, creates a vacuum, that is literally refilled with peace of mind, confidence, adventure, and a permanent new reality, along with an assortment of some really cool new “stuff”. Bingo 🤸🏽‍♂️. I will have answered the call of my heart which was crying out to be my authentic self for as long as I can remember. While I’m on this trip into the unknown, I find the true answers that have been dormant, or should I say hidden inside me like for forever it seems. While I’m in what I call this invisible realm is the place where I make that transition, and after exiting the abyss, I become a conqueror like Odysseus became when he came back home from his 20 year Odyssey from the Trojan War. It will be my time to actually use my new consciousness, my Future self will now inherit all of the virtues, and power, that I worked so hard to give him. As I look in the mirror I see how he gladly accepts the gifts that I have given him as I see the tears roll down his cheeks as a sign of his gratitude and appreciation for my love for him. He knows it wasn’t easy letting the old me die so he can live. My authentic self now eagerly faces new challenges and triumphs as I keep growing into the person I was meant to be. Yeah that sounds noble and all that, but…wait… all the sudden…. I hear a sudden screech, you know, like the sound of a person bringing their car to a sudden stop in order to avoid an accident. I can hear my future self telling me,” You know …I’m from that good ole state of Missouri. You gotta Show me”. Yep, so I’m keeping it real. I have yet to schedule a time to designate the period of silence, challenges, challenges. Anything worth fighting for is never easy. So I’ll probably do it next week, but I WILL find a way to get it done. I didn’t come this far to shy away from this moment, nor come up with a thousand excuses as to why I can’t do it. So I have no doubt when all is said and done, I’ll be looking in the mirror at my future ME looking back at me with a smile on his face full of gratitude and happiness for allowing him to be my best friend paving the way for him to be in possession of a new reality, new life, filled with all it’s abundance of riches.😎
