Week 26 is, in most ways, proceeding well. Continuation prescribed re-reading the masker keys, which I had planned to do but not this soon. I adjusted. In my personal life, I’m finding a Law Review has been dictated.
I’m glad we ended the course with the Law of Least Effort. That means it has been fresh in my mind. I have needed it. I needed it the final week of the course, and I implemented it with less expertise than would have been optimal (I’m being kind here). I needed it again this week, and I’ve been better. Still sub-optimal, but a significant improvement over two weeks ago.
Indulge me while I keep the law review foremost in my mind:
Law of Least Effort: Acceptance
- I practice Acceptance. Today I accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. I know that this moment is as it should be, because the universe is as it should be. I do not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. My acceptance is total and complete. I accept things as they are in this moment, not as I wish they were.
Law of Least Effort: Responsibility
2. Having accepted things as they are, I take Responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems. I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (and this includes myself_). I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit.
Law of Least Effort: Defenselessness
3. Today my awareness remains established in Defenselessness. I relinquish the need to defend my point of view. I feel no need to convince or persuade others to accept my point of view. I remain open to all points of view and am not rigidly attached to any one of them.
Applying the Law of Least Effort means living each day with:
There’s a lot in there, isn’t there? I’ve had to repeat Acceptance, Responsibility, and Defenselessness over and over and over again over these past few weeks. And that isn’t the only law I’ve needed.
I’ve restarted the Mental Diet so many times, I’ve lost count. The negativity has attacked with a vengeance, and I don’t always laugh at the world as well as I would like to. Even though “this too shall pass” definitely applies, I’ve found myself wishing to apply the Law of Relaxation — having my calm, relaxed state of mind help me access infinite intelligence, because I’ve certainly needed it, coming up short time and again. The Law of Practice is getting a work out. Everywhere I turn, I find an opportunity to practice — these laws, and I perform amazingly because of practice. Well, I need more practice, because amazing, well, I’m getting a lot of practice, and I will perform amazingly because of practice.
I know what I’m going through now in my life isn’t even the dress rehearsal for the real thing yet, so practice I will, because I need to get this right. I’m struggling to apply the Laws of Dual Thought and Substitution — attaching any feeling I desire to any thought (my choice) and instantly replacing a negative thought with a positive one. I’m getting better and better at the Law of Growth — what I think about grows and what I forget atrophies. Without exception.
I’m still not thinking the thoughts I want manifested, and that requires more practice, because the Law of Subconscious is at work, and it’s manifesting (just not exactly what I have planned for it to manifest). Plenty of Sit fodder, that’s for sure. I think I’ve been pretty good with the Law of Forgiveness. How’s your Law Review going?
