Yes, it has been a while. I felt the need for silence, the need to move away from any outer influence… Echoes in my mind, other people’s opinions… Long walks in the woods nearby, to recharge, reconnect, and to review my definite major purpose, in my mind, or was it maybe in my heart ?
Visualising, feeling, sensing, listening again and again, closer and closer, deeper and deeper, tuning into the wavelength of Truth… At this stage in the continuation of the #masterkeyexperience, I’m picking up the pieces again, and in doing so, I’m finding my own rhythm, my own melody, my own harmony… Continue reading →
Question. “How are fear, guilt, anger, unworthiness and hurt feelings great tools for expanding the comfort zone?”
Hm. This had me thinking all week… Just having to reflect on these words got me out of my comfort zone right there. The “Fear” of not getting it, not understanding the question, of not being smart enough, of not being able to make a thorough analysis, of saying the wrong thing in the end…
Hand me a saxophone and I’ll play you a few great lines. Comfort.
OK. How about, “Hurt Feelings” give me the perfect opportunity to practice forgiveness towards others ? And the emotion of “Guilt” provides me with yet another wonderful occasion to practice forgiveness towards myself… As our dear friend Og questions in his Scroll V, “… Can I relive the errors of yesterday and right them ? Can I call back yesterday’s wounds and make them whole ? Can I take back the evil that was spoken, the blows that were struck, the pain that was caused… ?”Continue reading →
I’ve been following the compass much more than the clock these past few days… I liked it. Or was it procrastination ? I don’t think so. Procrastination feels different. It smells different. Weak. Uneasy. Fishy. This, on the contrary, felt exciting… Something was cooking , and I held back, waiting for the perfect moment to take it off the fire.
I’ve been struggling with my Definite Major Purpose for quite a while now, thinking it over many times, turning it upside down, looking at it from different angles. But I have not been able to put my finger on the soar spot… I’ve been wanting so much to get in touch with my deepest inner core. Wanting to get a clear picture of what I really need to do with my life. Not in a distant future, but right now, pronto, as soon as Continue reading →
I just read Shelby Nolan’s blog post for this week. I’m definitely been part of the drifting crowd for the past few days or so. Oh, come on, honestly, definitely more than a few days… You know, it’s like getting a pair of new shoes or something, and you’re all happy and excited, you cherish them, take care of them, buy the right polish, find a special spot for them … And then after a while they’re just another pair of shoes…
But no sir, this is not like a simple pair of shoes. This course, these daily rituals, this practice, is way more valuable… Yet, the shapes, the dream board, the written DMP, the many index cards, the recording, Mandino, Haanel, … are becoming all too familiar…
I marked down “Decisiveness” for this first week’s virtue of Benjamin Franklin’s 13 Week Makeover. I “decided” that this was the one quality that needed the most attention in my ever-changing mind…I would love to do things with trust and confidence, not thinking things over a million times before moving into action… To be connected at all times to that inner voice which “knows” The Truth. And to trust it, to act on it, without the slightest hint of hesitation. I’m remembering The Way Of The Samurai.
With firmness, determination… conclusiveness, purposefulness, will power,… those are some of the synonyms I found online. And some other words related to decisiveness are persistence, perseverance, aim, intention… Now, don’t these words sound very familiar after 15 weeks into Continue reading →
Hm… Seems I have nothing major to bring to the foreground this week… Probably that’s quite an achievement already. 🙂 No struggles to complain about, no inner turmoil, just simply enjoying getting settled into these daily master key and other rituals. Love how Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret summarises all that we’re doing. Love the jazz music on the recording. Makes everything even more cosy during these cold winter days …
I took a few days off from the outside world. Stayed at home, alone, working on bringing everything into harmony, especially myself. I admit, I was a bit behind with a few things. Tons of emails to answer, some index cards to make, a few video replays to watch… I decided to fast for three days. Been wanting to for a while. Been feeling the need to cleanse my body within, and bring my thoughts into sharper focus. It’s a wonderful experience to notice how the mind becomes clearer, once the body doesn’t have to process all this food. As if adding a luminous Continue reading →
“I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep”.
It’s tough. It’s hard. I’m struggling. Like many of us I imagine. The days are too short, too many things to do. Maybe it’s the winter arriving ? It’s pretty cold out there. And it’s dark so early, 4pm…
OK now, stop right there. Stop whining. That’s about as far as we’ll go into that alley. I am a lion. A mountain lion. I’m a warrior. I know it’s all in my mind. It’s all my own blurred perception. I want to sharpen my senses and see the Truth. My mind’s windshield gets dirty now and then, from daily travelling. Dusty bumpy roads. I need to wipe it clean, to see clearly again. Chanting “Om” helps. Stretching helps. And I’ve continued to use “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, Continue reading →
