Week 23 – Ready to Fly.


Timing is truly everything. This course came to me at a time I needed it most and the course is ending at the time that is right for me.

As I have been thinking of what to write for my blog the song “Fly Like An Eagle” (The Steve Miller Band) rushed into my head. I haven’t played or heard this song for a very long time. It was a favourite of my housemates back in my university days. Now, that’s going back a few decades! (Insert smile) But, the lyrics truly do reflect where I am now.

I am ready to soar. I am ready to take all the marvelous MKMMA learning and move out on my own.

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I’m free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution…

Haanel writes in lesson 23 “Thought is the creative activity behind every constructive enterprise.” This has been paramount for me. Recognizing that my thoughts pre-MKMMA were detrimental and non-constructive. Thoughts are all we have. They are what we build our relationships and professional success on.

“The forces of life are volatile; they are composed of your thoughts and ideals and these in turn are molded into forms. Your problem is to keep an open mind, to constantly reach out for the new, to recognize opportunity…” (Hannel, 23-4)

I think from the beginning Mark J  has been trying so fervently to instill in us to watch the quality of our thoughts. If our thoughts are not quality; if they are not congruent with our true values, then there is going to be conflict. And the conflict will manifest itself in many different forms. I now understand that I am the orchestrator of my thoughts and I can let my mind soar like an eagle in order to achieve my highest self for the greater good. Thank you Mark J. I believe.
