Hello Everybody, I hope that you are all having a great day. I was able to go into the silence this past week for about eight hours and it was a good experience. I started out on Thursday morning and at first it was a little difficult to calm my mind down as it was racing to start the day as it normally does. I finally calmed it down and then I kept having an overwhelming desire to check e-mails and my phone for texts and to see the latest developments on social media (as if the world could not get along without me for a few hours LOL), but after about an hour all of that passed. I then did my morning read in silence and read some Haanel and had a good sit. I must admit that I did not have any great revelations or any major A-HA moments but as my mind calmed down and there were no distractions, I started to gain some real clarity on where I am going and how I’m going to get there and more of a very clear picture of my DMP. It’s amazing how much you can truly concentrate without any distractions for a period of time, and it’s crazy how dependent we are on mind numbing distractions such as television, radio, internet and social media…while all of these things if used wisely do hold some importance and value, most of us can abuse these things just as filler so that we can avoid the important and valuable things that we should be pursuing…I know that I’m guilty and I’m working on replacing those old habits. I will have at least one more opportunity to go into the silence this coming week for about eight hours and then the following week I should be able to go into a two to three day session…I am so looking forward to it because I know that with practice of this exercise and more focus and concentration I will have those revelations and A-HA moments.
It was great listening to the video of The Science of Getting Rich this past week. I read that book a few years ago and I sort of remembered the jist of it but I had forgotten most of the details. There are so many great principles and methods contained in that book and they are so in line with what we are experiencing in our journey. What really blew me away was the way that the Golden Rule was introduced…We usually say “Treat others as you want to be treated.” and that is a Golden Rule, but in S.G.R. it was given as “What I want for myself, I want for everybody.” I guess it basically means the same thing, But it just seems so powerful and giving in our service to others.
Have a great week Everybody, I bid you:
Peace, Love, Happiness and Kindness…God Bless.
