As this course is coming to an end, this week has been one filled with challenges galore. I think that I am being battle-tested for the up and coming days and years on what it means to perpetually grow and improve. With that being said, I’m gladly paying the price now than later. Since I finished the course and I am a lifer, this time around I see this whole year’s course as a vital part of my continuing commencement. I’ve become a much more stronger person spiritually, emotionally, and mental. Kindness, and discernment of any encounter are now like an automatic response to an encounter. Okay, so I still have work to do at home with these 2 elements. I express my gratitude for all my experiences good or bad, every morning by writing them down on my index cards. I read Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It was a bit challenging reading the first portion of the essay as the vernacular at time he wrote it was very different from what we are accustomed to reading today. My dictionary got a lot of usage. It was stop and go as I carefully read and re-read the first portions of the essay. As I started to get used to reading the essay, I was blown away at what I read. It was like it was speaking to my heart. It talks about being a self directed thinker, what it means to be self-reliant and being in complete harmony with the Universal mind, and not conforming to what society’s idea of who and what you should be. It was very comforting to read. I know that I will be misunderstood by family, friends, and intelligent minds. But you know what? It doesn’t matter. I definitely found myself this week taking positive advantage of anger, unworthiness, hurt feelings, guilt, fear, by immediately doing something constructive. I was totally amazed at how much more I was able to get accomplished. As I thought about this, I truly realized the potential and power that I possess to be anything I will to be. No limitations, period. I think about this one simple sentence in Scroll 6 that I think a hero or a winner would use every morning as they wake up: Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions: strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. The Law of Least Effort tops everything off while I become a master of my emotions by practicing this Law in actual situations. Wow! The 7 day Mental Diet on steroids’. Reading the Law of Least Effort on my 4 cards every morning is huge. I’m getting better each day at integrating these powerful tools. In the introduction to Chapter 23, I think literally what it said is that Perfection of Creative Thought is not acquired in 6 days, 6 months, or 6 years. It’s the labor of life. Not to go forward is to go backwards. Even after trying to explain the nature of what and why I’m involved in such a fantastic experience was met with ridicule and skepticism, I still pushed forward😄. I know that to others around me during these 6 months it might’ve looked as if I was being a bit selfish or neurotic by being so focused on what I was doing, but I’m focused on seeing my journey through all the way. I’m grateful for the resistance that I encountered because I know it takes a unique individual who keeps a promise, a dream, to finish what they started no matter what happens. Might as well be that hero 🚀. I see myself as this magnificent building being erected and only I know how it will look upon it’s completion. I look at myself as a Superman continually flying Up..UP.. and Away and being of service to others and being Kind to myself😎.

      1. Absolutely, Allen. We seem to be in sync, don’t we? I love the idea of staying connected and continuing to support each other. All the best as we “commence.”
