25. Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.
26. But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.
I really loved the sit this week. I found it easy to focus on harmony. I will soon be able to come into realisations during my sit but at the moment I’m enjoying getting into the meditation feeling – I feel like I’m buzzing or vibrating a little. Am I the only one? haha
Sorry in advance my blog will probably be all over the place this week. It usually is anyway but whatever. Back at work after a two week break and I have been more productive now I’m working full time again more so then when I was on holidays? Go figure. But I enjoyed the break, I still kept up with my daily activities just didn’t watch the webbys but nearly all caught up now so YAY I’m going to celebrate by going to sleep after this!
I did however have time to lounge around in the aircon and watch one of the movies ‘October Sky’. I’m such a big sissy sook, cried like a baby in this movie. I was surprised how quickly I saw the four steps though. Mark and Davene really do know what they are talking about haha!
So I’m trying to remember all the little facts but
DMP – Homer Hickam was super inspired by the Russians satellite Sputnik that he starting gathering information on rockets which made him decide that he was going to build his own rocket. Building that rocket became his definite major purpose – his GOAL!
PMA – schools tough kid I know! and Homer didn’t care about reputation when he went and talked to another kid who knew a lot about science, he kept a positive attitude around his school friends and even around his family even though his dad wasn’t stoked he didn’t wanna be a coal miner. Don’t blame ya homer! He even kept positive with no money to fund this project (the townies helped him, god bless) and in the face of all problems which arose, like getting accused of starting a fire in a neighbouring town.
POA – the scienceeeeeeeee fair! so that he could get a scholarship to collage since he sucked at footy and they were the only ways out of there small dead end coal mining town (unless of course you wanted to be a coal miner, then opportunities galore for you!)
MMA – He talked to everyone about it! His friends, he wrote letters to his idol, he talked to his teacher and family. And in the end the whole damn town was in on it!
Overall great movie and I was very proud of myself for seeing the 4 habits so clearly. Which means they are already in me so YAY!
I’ve been using my phone as a diet pill, my screen saver is bear hugs kettle – which I freaking LOVE. honestly the thing that has worked the most for me so far in regards to the law of substitution! And I have a clear case on with my movie poster stuck in and some affirmations on the back of my phone!
I’ve been making a big effort to mastermind and post in the alliance and Marco Polo groups and ticking that off every day! I actually feel anxious when I don’t get tasks completed now. Not anxious in a bad way but just so much more motivated to get shit done!
My OG book has literally fallen in half haha I’ve been reading it so much.
My partner heard me say the wrong date in my readings the other day by accident and corrected me, it was so funny he literally knows the dates for my dreams now too!
I gotta be honest it aint all sunshine and lollipops, I have down that I will teach pilates to someone for 5 mins minimum daily but for the last few days I haven’t had anyone to teach, but I forgive myself and I will work harder from tomorrow!
Okay don’t miss me too much just going to quickly catch up on my week 15 blog then I can sleeeeeeeep! After my readings of course haha!
