Wow, what a week! Recently, I applied for and received a scholarship to participate in a six month Master Key Master Mind Alliance. It is just the perfect thing and the perfect time for me to do and I’m so grateful to be included.
I started chanting in early September to “observe my mind” and wouldn’t you know, I received an email addressing the workings of the mind. I jumped on application process and feel great appreciation for the MKMMA class of 2014 who paid it forward and made it possible for me to participate for free! If I find value in the work I, too, can pay it forward! I’m already seeing value in the first assignment.
I challenged myself to accomplish all the required tasks, buy a few supplies and really begin to give some thought to mastering my mind. I’ve already surprised myself by sitting still for 15 minutes to master my body! I give myself a high five for sitting completely still. That is NOT something I’m accustomed to doing for sure!
One awesome thing that happened was that I discovered a caterpillar on a Passion Flower a few weeks ago and a friend taught me how to help her, (I named the caterpillar Lily) transform into a butterfly right in my kitchen window. It was something to see; her growth, going into the cocoon (sorta freaky) and and then yesterday Lily did indeed become a beautiful butterfly and flew away! I’m excited because I now have 2 more caterpillars (Laila & Sheila) in a jar preparing for their transformation too. The beauty of nature is simply amazing.
I found this experience to be very representative of my own expected transformation. With the help of MKMMA, in six months I plan to be just like Lily and soar into the skies of absolute freedom knowing exactly what my purpose or mission is in life and making sure I fulfill it.
Sometimes its easy to get hung up on the money aspect of life but in reality I know I’m here to do more, contribute more to the world than make a lot of money and spend it on stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely aspire to make a great income with my network marketing business but I know there’s a deeper meaning to life.
After sitting still for 15 minutes today (part of the homework), I needed to go to the post office. This is usually not what I’d call a fun thing to do since the lines are long and the employees are few. Determined to create a good feeling for myself I walked and played Jimmy Cliff’s version of the song I Can See Clearly Now. It is a great song and I recently saw him perform it at a festival. He was awesome and ageless. But I digress. I played the song repeatedly walking to and inside the post office where I even danced a bit while I looked out the windows at the beautiful trees across the street. It made the experience of waiting much more pleasant and entertaining. I think I probably even entertained some of the other patrons as well! The employee who helped me said she should charge me for using their facility as a gym/dance floor.
It all made me think, why don’t I do that more often? Listen to great music and focus on being joyful, singing, dancing and not fretting the mundane, hectic, frustrating things in life. Walking home with a smile on my face I interacted with men, women and babies who responded with smiles of their own. It is truly a wonderful way to walk through the neighborhood. A smile is a cause. I will make the cause to smile more each day and enjoy the effect. Perhaps learning to live blissfully will be my greatest lesson with MKMMA. Time will tell the story.
