The MKE has a progression where we workout in our Mind Gym. There are specific steps for this, but I’m winging it here because I can. I’m in my third year of the course — one year as a student committed to following the steps as taught and two years independently applying what I have learned, following along with the live course, and modifying as I see fit.
I checked the workbook for this week and saw the instructions for the continuing Mind Gym exercises, and I immediately thought it’s a good time for a reminder about progress in the Gym.
What are my reminders?
- Don’t judge your progress on your journey by what you SEE in others. You don’t know the struggles they face inside and you may not know how far they’ve come or how far they have to go. But do encourage them.
- Secondly, don’t judge your progress on your journey by your end goal. You shouldn’t necessarily look back too often to gauge how far you’ve come. You may look down and see only a short distance, but there are a couple of possibilities. Perhaps you’ve climbed the sheer cliff to get to the tiny purchase you’ve been able to cling to while checking your progress. Or maybe you’re not a good climber, so you’ve taken the long, meandering goat path which has taken you seemingly far out of your way to get to the cliff you’re clinging to now. Neither journey has been easy. Just different. It’s your journey, so savor it.
- Maybe you do look back and are amazed by how far you’ve come but you’re still frustrated by how far you have to go. This journey is your life. It will take as long as it takes. Savor each moment and build upon that going forward. Live in the moment. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow may never get here, but you have today. Seize it! Make it yours! No matter what life throws at you, calmly, with firm purpose, stand boldly, and say with conviction, “Bring it on!”
We begin Scroll V today. “I live this day as if it is my last.” If you knew this was your last day on earth, would you do anything differently? What? To a certain extent, we can’t completely throw caution … Continue reading →
This Hero has been traveling a rocky place on the road. Many potholes, many unmaintained roads, but the view? It’s fabulous. I’m approaching the Abyss in my Hero’s Journey. I’ve been avoiding it for awhile, and I will likely continue … Continue reading →
Thought is the plastic material we use to build images of our new lives. What kind of lives are we building with our thoughts this week? I’ve been working with shoddy materials this week and have been looking for a … Continue reading →
With the new month, we start a new scroll. This scroll focuses on, “I am nature’s greatest miracle.” Isn’t contemplating our miraculousness a wonderful way to start the new year? Not only am I nature’s greatest miracle, but you are … Continue reading →
This week we’re looking at the Law of Growth and how it manifests. Remember that the law of growth necessarily governs every manifestation in the objective, so that a denial of unsatisfactory conditions will not bring about instant change. A … Continue reading →
I saw a conversation this week that reminded me about reciprocity and The Law of Giving. I promise to keep these four promises: 1. Wherever I go I bring a gift. I may bring a compliment, a prayer, a trinket, … Continue reading →
For December, we are reading Scroll Three. “I persist until I succeed.” We are constantly being tested by life. We were not put here to fail, yet failure may find us. The prizes of life are at the end of … Continue reading →
We’re at the place in the course where we’re learning about the power of our thoughts. This has been building since the beginning, this week, paragraphs 17-18 of the Master Key lesson drives it home: 17. This conception is also … Continue reading →
