Week 16, Changes come from within

The next from 35 to 42, is a period of
reactions and changes, and this in turn is followed by a period of reconstruction,
adjustment and recuperation, so as to be ready for a new cycle of sevens,
beginning with the fiftieth year.

 

And I think back….I filed for divorce when I was 36, followed by definitely a period of adjustment and recuperation.
And guess what, I turned 50 just a few months ago, just before I started the MKMMA journey….wow, no such thing as coincidence!

Changes come from within. Since the world without is a reflection of the world within, when I change, the world without cannot be anything else but changing too. And it changes for the better!

Those familiar with these cycles will not be disturbed when things seem to go
wrong, but can apply the principle outlined in these lessons with the full assurance
that a higher law will invariably control all other laws, and that through an
understanding and conscious operation of spiritual laws, we can convert every
seeming difficulty into a blessing

In this I definitely see a key, a key to how our being is determining how well we convert challenges into blessings.
By the highly increased awareness of my thoughts as well of the words I speak or write, new habits are forming….I wrote it before, I have softened. For many years it has felt like I had to fight the world, defending my choices as if it would make any difference to my life if I would have their approval.

I don’t need anyone’s approval, only my own. But, having my daughter and her boyfriend accepting the gift of the product of my company, their openness to learning new skills that wil benefit them a lifetime, has been a breakthrough beyond words for me.
They never believed in network marketing. And that’s okay. They are free to make their choices in life, just allow me to make mine.

But things suddenly started to change since my daughter got a new manager, one that was hired with a clear task: to reorganize and get rid of staff on an indefinite contract. She really has a hard time dealing with this guy, likely has a mild form of autisme (never tested yet, but I’m too big an expert in this field to not recognize it) and suddenly was open to exploring different ways.
Within a few months I will need a personal assistent, I would love to hire her! I feel, with her learning the skills to make money independently, she will also slowly see how powerful the products we are selling really are.

We can only see what already exists in the objective world, but what we
visualize, already exists in the spiritual world, and this visualization is a substantial
token of what will one day appear in the objective world, if we are faithful to our
ideal. The reason for this is not difficult; visualization is a form of imagination; this
process of thinking forms impressions on the mind, and these impressions in turn
form concepts and ideals, and they in turn are the plans from which the Master
architect will weave the future.

What I visualize has not happened in the objective world yet, ever. But since I visualize it daily, all through the day, it already exists in the spiritual world. As Haanel says: ‘it is a substantial token of what will one day appear in the objective world, if we are faithful to our ideal.’

It’s an ideal that I work on with a team of people, a MasterMind working in perfect Harmony. The love we share within this group is obvious. We care, we share, we love each other.

We are about halfway this MKMMA course, but it feels like my personal journey only has just begun, and will continue on an ongoing basis, long after this course will have ended.

I love life, I love my teachers, my mentors, my fellow students, my peers….I love all humans, who all are nature’s greatest miracles. They all have the same powers, but only a few are becoming aware of these powers. Growing awareness, seeing kindness everywhere. Sharing kindness….a smile, a friendly word, a compliment….it changes the energy of the moment, of the day, of the person you are kind to… we are changing this world, one step at a time, as we are changing ourselves, one step at a time.
