The ability to eliminate imperfect conditions depends upon mental action, and mental action depends upon consciousness of power; therefore, the moreconscious we become of our unity with the source of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition.
Large ideas have a tendency to eliminate all smaller ideas so that it is well to hold ideas large enough to counteract and destroy all small or undesirable tendencies. This will remove innumerable petty and annoying obstacles from your path. You also become conscious of a larger world of thought, thereby increasing your mental capacity as well as placing yourself in position to accomplishsomething of value.
I love week 21. I found the scroll to be the one that talked to me the most. I know they all are saying the same thing in different words/examples/scenarios but this one I felt spoke to my soul the most.
I faced fear this week by doing a high ropes course. I have always had a pretty severe fear of heights which I guess is a fear of death. But I put myself in the position to see how my brain coped with the fear that has been embedded in me from an early age and my new found knowledge. I kept smiling the whole way, kept thinking and repeating outloud this is fun, I am happy, I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy. It was contagious. I could see it rubbing off onto people around me.
I always faced unworthiness by deleting social media. This one is a huge one for me. I constantly compare my life to others. But why? I know I can create that life if that is what I really want. I have an addiction to that feeling. I’m still working on breaking this habit.
I can’t believe this is nearly over. This has become a part of me. I see people around me doing things that this course has shown me to do. I have friends who say three gratitudes a day. A dentist I work with came in the other day and said after his meditation that morning he wanted to tell me he was grateful for me and needed to let me know. Another dentist I work says something she is thankful for every time we have an angry pt. It’s hilarious to me and I find it amazing that people around me are interested in what is happening to me.
I have not been perfect but it’s crazy if I don’t do the exercises for a couple days – I can not sleep, my mind goes absolutely crazy, it’s like a reel of all the sayings, concepts, dmps, affirmations that I’ve learnt and heard on this course just spinning around and around in my head and I wake up with a NEED to get my tasks done. It’s the craziest thing.
I know I smile a hell of a lot more lately.
I am excited for after the course, I know I can do this – and I will figure it all out in due time. I have tools now!
The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that “like attracts like”, consequently the mental attitude willinvariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.
This mental attitude is our personality and is composed of the thoughts which we have been creating in our own mind; therefore, if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life.
It is, however, no easy matter to change the mental attitude, but bypersistent effort it may be accomplished; the mental attitude is patterned after the mental pictures which have been photographed on the brain; if you do not like the pictures, destroy the negatives and create new pictures; this is the art of visualization.
