Here we got to experience a more intense week of self-direction, along with incorporating Mandino’s Scroll VI:
“Today I will be master of my emotions.”
It really is all about choice. How am I going to greet the day when I first wake?
“I greet this day with love in my heart.” (Mandino, Scroll II)
Do I listen to the news first thing and read social media posts? Or do I continue with readings, reflection and silence?
“Good habits are the key to all success.” (Mandino, Scroll I)
“I concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily upon the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.” (Blueprint Builder)
There has been an unfolding of liberty week after week of MKMMA, realizing that I really do get to choose how to respond to the world around me. Even during challenging moments.
“I engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people.” (Blueprint Builder)
I don’t have to default to what I was conditioned to, i.e. taking on a victim role. I choose to be the observer. Observer of myself. Observer of my environment.
I think the exercise of silence is going to take self-awareness to a whole new level. I can see that from reading many wonderful posts this week about how people have a new sense of self after their practice of silence. I am really looking forward to my journey into silence and what new observations it will bring and how much more of the cement will come away and getting closer to my authentic self.
