Week 17 – Time To Shine Those Shoes…

shoes pictureI 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…

So how do we keep the magic going ? How do we bring the game back into the ring ? Like on that very first encounter…

“Today I begin a new life…”

Remember that ? Man… intense… That very first time when we opened Mandino’s manual to success, and slowly built up to Scroll I, after a wonderfully poetic prelude… Wow, the excitement, the emotions… “TODAY I begin a new life”… Every molecule, every atom, every electron of our entire being waking up to that call… Feel that vibration ! C h a n g e  happening instantly…

The decision has been made. Permission has been given.

We need to bring the magic back guys. How about revisiting the whole thing ? Redecorate. Yes, I mean it. Rewrite ALL the cards, the DMP, the Blueprint Builder, the whole shebang… A new musical arrangement, a new DJ in da house… Use different pens maybe ? Let’s even redo the dream board and the recording… New pictures, new tone of voice, new music, new phrases…

Same vision, desire, goal, dharma.

Interestingly enough, “Self-Control” was next on my makeover list of virtues this week. Coincidence ? Perfect timing, yes. Exactly when needed. Exactly after 17 weeks in the Master Key Experience… Get a grip boy !

It has been a challenge to see signs of “self-control” in the outer world… A few rare occurrences. “Kindness” was so much easier compared. But I guess what it means is, that I’m in dire need of strengthening my self-control muscle… At first it made me think of holding back, of controlling my emotions, my impulses… But then, it feels more like controlling the self is all about controlling the mind, controlling those thought-waves flying all over the place… We want to still the waves, bundle them into a laser-sharp focus… And burn a huge hole in whatever is holding us back on our way to freedom…

You ready ?
