Will The Real Week 20- Please Stand Up?

I listened to the webinar last week and thought I had the idea of what was needed in the Alliance Section; Write two posts on how we use points in our comfort zone to grow. Seemed like a piece of cake until I went to actually write about it. All of a sudden, it didn’t make so much sense. How am I using fear or feelings of unworthiness to goad me on, to get me into a new life that can only be dreamed about?

So I wrote about the feelings, but couldn’t take it to the next step. It was a blank, and still is. So what’s been happenin’ this past week that looks good?

In addition to reading Og and Scroll V 3 times a day, yes, I’m back to 3 from 2, I have started to do Paramahansa Yogananda’s energization exercises in preparation to my sit. And this seems to be a perfect intro to meditation. I seem to be getting into a deeper state with this exercise.

Everything we are reading now shows an increase in focus during meditation. Haanel says that the one and only condition of spiritual power is use or recognition. Part 20, section 2.

Part 20, section 5 says “So long as you do this (remain oblivious to our true power) you limit yourself to superficial conditions, and make of yourself a beast of burden for those who think; those who recognize their power; those who know that unless we are willing to think we shall have to work, and the less we think the more we shall have to work, and the less we shall get for our work. Well, I’ve been working most of my life and not really enjoying the “job” or the fruits of the labor. Emphasis on LABOR.

Since focusing on my DMP and moving through some hesitance of making calls, I’m finally finding some fun in what I’m doing. I have my first large account looking at a program that puts more money in the employees pocket each pay period, increases dollars in FICA savings for the employer, reimburses the employee for 75% of out of pocket expenses for their health insurance deductibles and co-pays and… not costing additional net out of pocket for either employer or employee. With the enrollment of this terrific service for employer and employee, I will be well on my way to a DMP of 40,000 employees enrolled by years end.

So what really got this to this point? I believe, exercise, change of habits and lotssa meditation… and asking for help.

Week 20- Another epiphany happens

My wife and I were talking this morning about MKMMA, A Course in Miracles, Oneness, my Bible study group, her church and how these are all getting intertwined for us.

MKMMA with Haanel and the exercises have helped me see what had been missing in the past. With the changing of habits and concrete ways to grow, from the bottom- up, has allowed me to get to a different space- faster than just meditating. It has allowed for the chemical changes that I had been addicted to, to move to a higher desire. I use to love a melancholy feeling, bordering on depression, overcast days, sad music and just plain feeling sorry for myself. Sunshine was the feeling that turned me on. What was with that?

Back to our conversation this morning… My wife mentioned, as she has for the 22 years we have known each other, has had visions that would make most envious. At a very difficult time in her life, she asked for guidance and had a chalk board appear before her with all the wrongs she felt people had done to her over her life and then a voice spoke to her and said, “Clean Your Slate” and then a white light appeared from the side of the board and came across the board, whiting out all those misdeeds.

My wife’s father and mother passed away at a fairly early age. She was in her twenties at the time when they passed, had three small children and was in the process of a divorce. Recently, she asked for help and her father appeared to let her know that she was not alone. As a matter of fact, she has felt that he has been there throughout her life, whenever she has asked for help, help surely arrived.

She mentioned enjoying the groups I attend and is totally on board with what is being presented, however, her Home is in attending church and reading the Bible. I have known this, for the length of time we have been together. She gets what is totally needed there and with the prayers she says each day and some instances, most of the day, depending on what’s going on gets results.

One last quick “happening” of many that needs to be brought up here is my wife asked the question, “What do I need to know?” She was meditating at that time and an angel called Gabriel came over a hill and down by her and answered, “Love is the answer to everything.”

We know that LOVE is the answer. It is where I have been going when things need a new light thrown on them.

But, what really came out of our conversation this morning that was pointed out by my wife… unlike her… I don’t ask for help. She asked, knowing full well the answer to the question, “Have you ever asked for help?”  So… an addition is to be added to my meditation, I ask for help.

Week 18…or 19, depending- BUT, BE HAPPY

Once again, I am told it is but a choice. “The Universal Mind is static Mind or Substance in equilibrium. It is differentiated into form by our power to think. Thought is the dynamic phase of the mind.” Sooo, whadaya think? MKMMA is working me each day to focus on the good, the things I truly want. How am I continually striving to change what might not have been the thoughts I wanted to create? It is happening through meditation, flipping through card decks with the things I want and the positives of which I need to take notice.

I am Reading three times a day from Og Mandino and The Greatest Salesman in the World. I am changing habits from the old to the new. FOCUS on what I WANT, not what I have been or do not want. Continue this focus, with feeling, during every waking hour. And what happens when I sleep? I take these ideas to bed with me as the last thing I think about before turning in.

Turning in, that’s interesting, because that’s exactly what I need to do. Go inside myself to the real authority, The Universal Energy that is within us all. It needs to see what I am trying to complete in order to move the universe in that direction. So, the last thing before sleep and the first thing upon waking should be the ever present thoughts of what I want, not what I do not want.

Focusing on what makes me happy gets the real feeling involved in the mix and it is this combination with repetition that moves the atoms into alignment for exactly what I want.

And what do I want more than anything? What will help build a better life than LOVE and HAPPINESS? The genius in me is Attention and the Attention is being practiced.

So I am stacking my card deck with Happiness and seeing it everywhere.
