In 6 Haanel says:
To think correctly, accurately, we must know the “Truth’. The truth then is the underlying principle in every business or social relation. ……. To know the truth, to be sure, to be confident, affords a satisfaction beside which no other is at all comparable; it is the only solid ground in a world of doubt and danger.’
Like most people I was brought up to ‘tell the truth’. When I was about 12 I forged my mother’s signature so I could get a library card. I was absolutely guilt ridden and couldn’t wait for her to get home from work so I could confess my heinous crime. I imagined the librarian would know because I had ‘Forger’ stamped on my forehead and so I never set foot in that particular library ever again. I was filled with remorse for months! I can’t remember what Mum said to me but I know she didn’t rant and rave (it wasn’t her style) and she probably thought my guilt and remorse were punishment enough.
So, with this fundamental principle embedded in my psyche I really struggled with my DMP when I first had to write about everything I desired as though it had already come to pass because how could any of this come true – it was a fairy tale. I didn’t feel in harmony with anything or anyone let alone the Infinite and Omnipotent power.
That sounds as though I was on a runaway train to despair. But I have learned to let go of outcomes; the how is not my business, things will happen at the right time. I have been on the path of self-discovery for a long time. Books have jumped out at me from the shelves that I needed to read. All my experiences to date are grist to the mill and have led me to this place. There are no coincidences and as the saying goes ‘When the student is ready, the teacher appears’ and I believe that joining the MKMMA course is something that showed up at the right time.
So whilst I am struggling to gain mastery of my old blueprint and overcome confidence issues I am persevering with the reading and exercises. I confess that my sits are somewhat erratic and sometimes I nod off, I’m getting better at the ‘opinions’ issue and the 7 Day Mental Diet is a challenge. Nevertheless things are falling into place, my affirmations are positive and my visualisations getting clearer. And Frederick Elias’s affirmation ‘I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy’ is a real ‘sing it from the rafters’ booster and is the best way to drown out the old blueprint. (I don’t give it the power of a capital letter any more!! Baby steps).
So because what we think about becomes our reality, every day I say aloud:
