The focus of this weeks effort is on establishing harmony. No background music, no movie trailer. Just intense focus on oneness with the universal mind. Prayer is what we are doing and when done well we find ourselves in Harmony with the Universal Mind. I think I have come to realize that learning how to pray and doing it daily is valuable. Over the years, I have gotten away from this.
A few weeks ago our pastor presented a sermon on prayer and one of the points he made was that a thankful prayer is as important as a supplicant prayer. One of our recent exercises has been filling out the index cards with things that we are thankful for. Really cool way to connect with God. That harmony and the law of Substitution establishes that relationship that we are looking for in the flow of giving and receiving too. Also the affirmations we repeat throughout the day continues that established relationship between our whole and perfect self, and the perfect Universal.
Today is a New Year and so we begin another scroll. This one seems to have my name all over it and will again link back to the index cards. Because of self esteem issues that I have, for me to say thrice daily that I am nature’s greatest miracle is challenging. I do not yet have enough cards filled out with accomplishments and positive attributes about myself. Hope I will catch up. Kathy says that I’m not recognizing things about me. She does, and that may be true. Problem is that I need to profess them, she doesn’t. This is a stumbling block in my progress that I am working on. Suggestions appreciated.
The Og Mandino Group’s CEO, Dave Blanchard, has a book out that I just read and plan on rereading again this weekend called, The Observer’s Chair, and it’s about healing self-esteem. It appears that Og and Dave had some issues that they dealt with. There’s some history about OM and how he came to write the GS that is interesting, too. There also is a short audio section on affirmations that complements what we’re doing.
My challenges in this MKMMA have been first to crystallize my DMP, a challenge that many of us have and continue to have. Self esteem issues Og dealt with and so do I. Whatever is next?
