Harmony is a blend of essential oils. I was preparing to diffuse Harmony this afternoon, so I was transferring the oil from it’s storage bottle to the bottle with a wick that goes into my USB diffuser for use on my desktop.
I spilled some into a circle about the size of a quarter onto my desk blotter. I blotted it with my hands and a tissue. I’m thankful the scent is a gentle one and not overpowering. I think I have been feeling more harmonious since the spill.
A nice essential oil blend is helpful, but there’s more to harmony that simply breathing in a complex blend of oils. In fact, Haanel’s lesson this week is particularly emphatic about this. I’m heartened and chastened as I read 14-26.
But the thought must be clear cut, steady, fixed, definite, unchangeable; you cannot take one step forward and two steps backward, neither can you spend twenty or thirty years of your life building up negative conditions as the result of negative thinking, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of fifteen or twenty minutes of right thinking.
Drat. Would that it be true. But alas. This is so encouraging, right? I’ve had 55 years to build up negative thinking patterns. I’ve had bursts of attempts at positiveness, but I’ve had far more negative than positives in the long run. Of course it’s going to take a little time to turn this ship around.
The intro to this week reminds us that a weed remains visible even after it’s roots have been severed. So, too, are our negative tendencies. We’re going to need have a few more sessions to eradicate this garden of weeds we’ve sown during our lifetime. But I can see them fading away. I can SEE the way to make them go away.
14-30 says, “Your world without will be a reflection of your world within.” My world within is getting much better. Â 14-29 says, “If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop an harmonious mental attitude.”
Spilling a little Harmony goes a long way to helping that. Besides, I’m nature’s greatest miracle. How cool is that? And you are, too! Even better.
