Hello to all who stumble across this blog. It seems every week has its intense moments. A few short weeks ago I was very discouraged at my performance in the MKE. As I was at my lowest, that’s when it happened, it seemed every lesson, every scroll, points discussed in the webinars, were absorbed on a deeper level at the very moment I needed them the most. My partner, my guide, my tribe, and the blogs of others reinforced I am not alone, these new habits, this remembering who we are, is a true shock to our system.
The ferocity with which my old blueprint wants to protect itself is quite remarkable…To replay some of the things I had thought or said last week, to be that third person in the room, and see my behaviour, was an amazing display of the ego feeding the subby, with undesirable information, embracing the exact opposite of the laws and concepts I KNOW to be TRUE …. it actually makes me laugh, well..in an overtired laughing/crying at the same time kind of way.
What I am thinking and feeling THIS week, compared to last week, is a staggering difference. Accepting these moments not as “set backs” , but rather the exact opposite, wonderful opportunities to recognize behaviours and beliefs I wish to eliminate, has re-ignited my desire to succeed, fanning that burning desire to take advantage of the abundance around me, in me, the abundance that is me…. Realizing and directing this abundance in concert with my greatest gifts, to live a life of purpose and fulfillment, is the only true path to happiness.
I am here to learn how to use the most amazing tool ever created… My Brain!….. With every wave of realization, of intent, of earnest desire to be better, I become the center of a powerful ripple, casting out in all directions, influencing and mingling with all it moves through. I am claiming and understanding my responsibility to use this gift by casting out love in all directions at all times…. giving the world a “Ripple-ectomy” if you will. ( lol…I couldn’t get away from that)
As it turns out, I really wasn’t far behind at all. Diligently getting back on the exercises, immediately had a huge effect, the index cards are awesome, so many great memories of things I have done over the years, it has been emotional at times…I am starting to hone in on powerful memories, where I was in the flow naturally, these re-enforce the notion, I am already there, I have always been amazing, now I am finally starting to understand how to experience it on purpose with Love and Service as my foundation.
An new thing I did is record myself reading the entire weekly lesson, also the current scroll….I found it very powerful to hear myself reading these ultra wise lessons, it was like being in third person again, I can step back and hear/see/ visualize myself learning, and clearly see and feel the concepts being absorbed….I intend to do this for all the lessons and scrolls so far over the next week or so. I am excited about the process. As a First Aid instructor, I am always amazed at how easy it is to see the big picture from 5 feet away, you can anticipate what is next, see the perfect path, recognize what is being missed, watch the thought process, see it evolve and improve with…you guessed it…PRACTICE…. for myself and many students observing, this is the time when real learning happens, a connection is made, you find a way to absorb the process, by some association in your mind, whether that is an acronym or a tune or anything that works.. It felt the exact same way when I was listening to my self reading. The Master Key lessons are amazing, so matter of fact, logical, scientific, and annoyingly simple to conceive. The scrolls are so powerful, every time, different parts continue to jump out at me all the time…..and newly, the Franklin Makeover is really hitting home for me.
The Makeover almost feels like the first game of the season, after tryouts, practice, memorizing plays, getting in shape. My ability to see subtle gestures is amplified, I notice people living the virtues in the makeover, most importantly, I notice myself living them ! Kindness is such a wonderful virtue to look for, see in action…once you look, you realize it is everywhere….Our world isn’t filled with a bunch of selfish jerks like we are fed to believe, every person enjoys kindness, whether they admit it or not..its in the original blueprint which we all share… I have looked at people and can sense how they are feeling, what they are thinking….. good or bad…..relaxed or stressed….fearful or fearless…. and by an unexpected hello, or friendly gesture, a smile, a tip of the hat, bring them hurling out of their daydream to an eye to eye connection with another human, who happens to be aggressively emanating love towards them. I have always been that friendly, courteous guy, but to do it consciously, and to really be looking for the effect it has on people and me, is proving to be an awesome experience. I can easily visualize how my smile ripples throughout each persons day, they smile too, they forget a worry, they do something nice for someone else, and the ripple goes on, who knows how far, how good is your imagination? A Ripple-ectomy is a powerful thing you know…..I can sense myself changing the world, and I am watching very carefully, to be able to observe others changing the world. This is a very empowering experience….these virtues are on my mind, the more I think about them, the more I see them all around me, the more I consciously choose to “BE” these virtues, the quicker they once again become, the foundation of my behaviour and beliefs….As an added bonus, they are all very contagious, I trust and know, that by giving myself permission to be amazing, gives anyone who encounters me, the same permission to themselves….one loving, selfless act after another, our love and kindness enthusiastically hurled in all directions, bathing everything in our light, living how we were intended to…….and the Ripple-ectomy begins.
I am so grateful to have the time and space to really get into my blog today…I am sensing that the “Ripple-ectomy”could easily be crafted into a humorous musical/ theatrical movement……into the “Love Onion” Book it goes for some future masterminding…..As I read my blog back I realize that yes, this is the perception and path that rings true to my core. I must increase my realization and embodiment of these concepts everyday. I persist and I succeed, because you persist and succeed….Thank you!
