In the still early stages of this ‘grand adventure’, I have been profoundly impacted by phrases, particularly from the Master Key readings. The line from the first paragraph of this weeks reading is particularly impressive, “Your whims, your wishes, your fancies, your ambitions may be thwarted at every step, but your inmost thoughts will find expression just as certainly as the plant springs from the seed.” Again Haanel writes, “Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort…the positive thought will destroy the negative as certainly as light destroys darkness, and the results will be just as effectual.”
When my son was in junior high, I assisted his football team in conditioning drills and assisted in practice. One day while gathering for practice some of the boys were talking big about how much talent they had and how they were going to stomp their opponents all year. The coach spoke up and said, “Nice thoughts guys. Every team thinks on this first day they are world beaters. After this first practice, more than half of this group will not show up for the next one. While nothing being done is impossible for you, your body will scream that you did not sign up for this. Whoever wins that argument with their body wins at football and learns the key to winning all life long.”
I am so grateful for the clarity which MKMMA has brought to the power we have to change our lives. Zone in on what is right and true. Think actively, purposefully and with passion on such and enjoy the benefits of a life lived on your terms.
