I’m grateful for this week!
I haven’t sat and made the firm decision to do the 7 day mental diet yet, I am going to re-read the booklet on it and go at it! I have heard many people talk about it and the impact it has made in there life.
This week I have caught up on pretty much all the assignments, I have the rest to finish this Saturday. Being on track feels gooodd lol!!
This weeks lesson of master key was veryyy powerful for me and also an eye opener because I never fully understood the power of thoughts…
Two quotes really stood out for me:
1. “Look To This Day For it is Life, the very Life of Life. In Its brief course lie all the Verities and Realities of your existence; The Bliss of Growth; The Glory of Action; The Splendor of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a Dream, And tomorrow is only a Vision: But Today well lived makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, and Every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well, therefore, to This Day!”
THIS PHRASE IS SOOO POWERFUL! It struct me while I was reading it and even now as I read it… The perspective and the meaning behind it was liberating for me. The perspective of truly understanding the value of today and stepping out into your day with the correct thoughts and understanding that a day is valuable and how you use every single day leads you either up or down.
and the second quote….
2. “We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analysing every thought. If it is necessary, if its manifestation in the objective will be a benefit, not only to yourself, but to all whom it may affect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; it is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit a hundred-fold. On the other hand, it will be well for you to keep this quotation from George Matthews Adams, in mind, “Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view.”
Until this course I have never taken the “thoughts are things” statement as seriously as I am now. I find myself analysing every single thought, and all this time I have thought I was a pretty positive person, but I am finding that negative affirmations and disbelief enter my head throughout the whole day! I am focusing now on really analysing every thought and substituting it immedietly. I am soooo excited to get control of my thoughts and really start to design the world within, which will therefore translate into my reality.
