Week 15 Happy New Year! Moving forward, paths converge

I am natures greatest miracle. Og teaches us the we are all unique and rare in our own and no other can be exactly what we can be to the world. We all are of great value You know I really like the sound of that and it is something that I can believe with my whole being. What an achievemet it would be if man could put aside his differences and embrace each human being as the uniquely rare and valuable being they are. It will happen, maybe not in my life time, but then again, who knows how long my lifetime may be!….lol

As week 15 coincides with the New year I would like to share poem IV from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyamm with Spiritual Interpretation and Practical Application as written by Paramahansa Yogananda founder of the Self Realization Fellowship.

IV
Now the New Year reviving old desires.
The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires
Where the White Hand of Moses on the Bough
Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires.

GLOSSARY: New Year: New dawn of wisdom, Old desires : The age old longing of the soul in quest of Spirit. The thoughtful soul: The soul that reasons and discriminates* Solitude: The inner silence of spiritual consciousness. White Hand: Purified consciousness. Bough: Universal wisdom: Christ Consciousness. Ground: The cosmic delusion of mortality.

*strictly speaking the soul, being a pure reflection of the spirit, is all knowing and has no need to reason or discriminate. But during incarnation, ( Our present condition on earth )the soul takes on the delusion of separation from the Spirit. as wisdom begins to dawn in man through the natural upward evolution of his reason and discrimination, the soul’s all knowing faculty of intuition stirs and directs these powers within, to discover intuitively the eternal presence of the spirit.

Practical Application

When wisdom dawns on you , awakening the desire to understand the mystery of your soul, don’t put it off: retire to the inner sanctum sanctotum of silent peace wherein all great souls have entered, by the gate of meditation, and found wisdom and emancipation.
The thirst for understanding can be quenched only by drinking new wisdom daily from the well of discrimination. The burning desire of incarnations are alleviated only by soothing dews of peace, collected in the deep bowl of solitude. Moses, Jesus, you and I, all beings, can find ever-sought for solace in the silence of the soul.
This quatrain has also mundane significance. The advent of the New Year revives old desires to succeed on the path of life. Most individuals fail to garner the rare wild blossoms of success because they do not deeply deliberate and search long enough to discover where they lie hidden on the forest of difficulties.
Everyone who seeks success, even as great men have sought it and found fulfillment, should retire often into the silence and introspect on his problems. By discrimination and meditation he can make his mind receptive to the intuitive guidance of the soul and plan his life accordingly. Problems that have seemed insoluble will unravel their mysteries in the nook of solitary thhoughtfulness.

Happpy New Year Seems these same principles are what we are being taught here with the MKEMMA

Week 14 Some days are just easier than others

Week 14:
Well I made it through Christmas. The day after, not so much….Day 2 of of yet another 7 day mental diet. I really thought that I would get through the holiday season without a hitch but my daughter had other plans. Some times it seems like your family can’t stand to see you actually happy. going through life speaking no ill, having a smile and keeping your mouth shut….lol
That seems to trigger the reaction from them to see exactly what it will take to get under your skin. I decided not to play that game.I just left! Oh yes I was told I was just running away. Hell yeah I was leaving because what was the point of arguing about some old crap that doesn’t matter. Have you ever really noticed that most arguments are about trivial things? Sometime with family I want to say if you want to argue about something , lets pick a topic of importance and see if we can actually solve a problem. but..I get out to the garage I reach into my back pack, grab my cards and all is well because in my hands I hold the essence of the good and simple things I have done in my life. I flip through and I feel good about myself and I don’t have to give another thought to what has just transpired. Pop in my ear buds, listen to the Masterkey Audio and I am ready for my ride home. Oh yeah don’t worry about me not being able to hear traffic….I have a smart phone and apparently it decides what volume I can listen at. and I’m on a bike.

So the movie that I watched was Cool Runnings, because it was certainly the most fun and it was the only one I could find on Netflix. It is about a young sprinter named Derice Bannock who’s father was a gold medal Olympian, and his dream was to follow in his fathers foot steps and become a gold medal winner himself. His Definite Major Purpose. He loses his chance to go to the Olympics as part of the Jamaican Sprint Team due to another runner stumbling and falling. But that is not the end of it, he is a man with a dream and he will persist until he succeeds.
After finding that there was only 1 Olympic event that could utilize his talent and speed, he decides to form the first Jamaican Bobsled Team! because he is not going to let his dream die because of one little set back, He uses his positive mental attitude to formulate a specific plan of action to get him to the Olympics as a bobsledder. It just so happens that there is an American Bobsled gold metal winner living on the Island Irving Blitzer who first came up with the idea of sprinters pushing off bobsleighs. They need to enlist his help as coach, but he wants nothing to do with the idea at first, but then views it as a way to get back into the good graces of the Olympic committee, as he was caught cheating in the 1972 Olympics.
Derice and his best friend Sanka Coffee, the champion push cart driver on the Island have to be quite persistent in their attempts to get Irving Blitzer to commit to being their coach but finally it’s a done deal. But they had to work for it. But they still need a team a 4 man team. As luck would have it the other two sprinters involved in the fall, Junior Bevil and Yule Brenner also share similar DMP’s and want to go to the Olympics anyway they can, so together , 3 sprinters and a pushcart driver become the first Jamaican bobsled team. and with their coach they are their own Master Mind Alliance
Once they get to Calgary the true growth begins, they find that not everyone is excited about the prospect of a Jamaican Bobsled team. They discover nobody real wants them there. They have to endure insults from other bobsled teams, But with their positive attitudes and their persistence, after being disqualified and then reinstated and Junior’s father showing up to take him home, and losing a blade on their sled on their final run causing them to lose any hope of winning a gold medal. The Jamaican team picked up their sled proudly and walked it across the finish line winning the hearts of the world and making history thus achieving everything they actually wanted to do.

This Movie serves as an inspiration to everyone who has a dream that if they hold that dream in their minds with a positive mental attitude and persistently follow a plan of action, using the help of their own personal Mastermind Alliance all dreams can be realized.

Week: 13 Emerging from my Chrysalis MY wings are exposed!

And my soul shall FLY!
Boom the most powerful webinar yet!, it home and awakened my senses. I actually thought that I was struggling but I realize that I am right on track with my studies. My struggle has been with catching up on my Marco Polo’s. Simply because I get the webinar in replay so I can’t really discuss a webinar until I have viewed it. It would be like trying to have a conversation about something you know nothing about…..lol   I’m not in that habit…lol

So what have I actually learned in 13 weeks?

I learned that I and I alone am the master architect of my life. And only I can build a new reality for myself. I learned that thoughts are energy and causes and that everything that manifest in my life, good or bad, is the direct effect of  my thoughts and the energy put into them.. I am the cause , my life is the effect. I learned that in order to build that new reality that I need a new blue print that is  concise and uses specific language for my subconscious to interpret to  begin construction. This is done by means of a DMP. Definite Major Purpose. Here is where I had a little problem.  I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I was a human being, I wanted to experience life and evolve. That got shot down early on when I realized that people were more into slapping a label on themselves and throwing themselves into a box because it was easier that taking the responsibility of being human. And thus we have the world today! And this is in keeping with my PPN Personal Pivotal Need of Spiritual Growth. And as my DMP manifest it brings the satisfaction of my PPN Recognition For Creative Expression. Although  I do believe that my PPN’s are in perfect alignment to each other,  as I write this I may have to rethink my DMP. Because to me becoming as perfect a human being as possible is a much loftier ambition than becoming a notable singer, but I do love to sing! My consciousness has shifted  me back to where I belong,  grounded in the spiritual.   Yey, MKE
I learned that I talk too much and too fast to be a good guardian at the gate….Anyone who has ever talked to me knows that …lol  but I am trying.
I learned that I could use colors and shapes and highly charged emotion to transfer my thoughts from mundane energy to the dynamic energy in order to create a fully charged visualization of my new life and hold and inspect it and continue to build on it til it is a perfect creation ready for manifestation.
I learned to accept being a gracious giver and a grateful receiver because giving is the only way to open the channel between the material and the divine to allow our perfect creation to manifest . And you can not receive unless your heart is open to it.  And being open means trust.
I learned that my life is full and rich, maybe not by someone else’s standards but certainly by mine because it is full of life,, laughter  and love. And you can always find me dispensing vitamin H…that’s hugs!  And I learned to identify some of my triggers to negative thought formulation and substitute a positive affirmation to dissipate the negative energy. This requires a lot of work on my part,  remember not to good of a guardian at the gate…lol But what is life without challenges?….lol  Good on theory but a little light on practical application …but I get it!
I learned to look myself in the eye in the mirror  for 50 minutes while reciting a one sentence DMP  and fully love and appreciate the person looking back. In my 50 minutes I experienced having to face what my fear of accomplishment actually is and deal with it. Although I may be flawed at this moment in time, the person looking back is perfection.

But the most important thing I have learned from this experience is that I am in the presence of other human beings who are trying to make this world a better place for all. And I am truly humbled to be in your presence. Thank you for the experience. I would like to share with you what has been my blue print for my life. I found a copy in a thrift shop when I was about 20. I had ventured off to college and had found that my parents had kept us children extremely sheltered from harshness of the “REAL” world. I was at a loss as how not to be totally emotionally crushed by the pure nonsense and cruelty of it all. And then I found this. It became my blueprint for my life.

Desiderata

Go Placidly amid the the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quitely and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself to others you will become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your acheivements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own carreer, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to the virtue there is. many people strive for high ideals: and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be Yourself. Especially do not feigh affection. Neither be cynical about love: for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perenial as the grass. Take kindly to the counsel of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to sheild you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself, you are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be here, and weather or not it is clear to you no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with GOD whatever you conceive Him to be: and whatever your labors and aspirations, in this noisy confusion of life, keep pace with your soul. With all it’s sham and drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. Max Ehrman

“The Father and I are one Increase in me that wisdom Which discovers my truest interest, Strengthen my resolution To perform that which wisdom dictates.
I look forward to my next 13 weeks and continuing my evolution.

Week 12: It’s getting to the point… where I’m……

Well here we are, and here I am. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy….To be a human being and loving every moment of it.
Week 12 finds me totally embracing my 50 minutes of me! Wow! At first it was pretty weird mostly because I don’t think I have ever looked at my self in the eye for 50 minutes straight before! So of course i went through the shadows under my eyes becoming big bags and my face becoming a bit distorted as I stared myself down my future self while looking at my shapes and actually it was kinda awesome because I could laugh at my face until I saw me again…lol
When I incorporated the brain gymnastics, things got a bit more fun it was easier to recite after I had boiled my DMP down to  my one line DMP the ultimate goal,  because I developed a rhythm It was actually like playing my body as a drum. I looked a bit silly in the mirror and I started to laugh and that brought out the smiles and the giggles and the enthusiasm. which mad it even more fun. I did have a bit of a time trying to come up with 30 things I did right.  At first it seemed a bit egotistical but it became fun when I realized that I had done some things right in my life….lol  After that I was merrily tooting my own horn on some multi colored 3 x 5 cards.

Feeling better all the time!

 

 

 

 

Week 10 and 11: A funny thing happened on the way to my Goal!

Yeah I had to combine these two because what happened , happened over the course of two weeks. I really had to give this a lot of thought. The past weeks 8 and 9 I have been giggling to myself about how well my POA had been going and seeing small manifestations of good fortune for me and others.
I was noticing that I was not seen the same people that I had given money to or paid their bus fare and I usually saw the same people at least twice a week, but it is the Holiday Season! I hope everyone is safe and prosperous.
I had actually completed 7 days on my 7 day diet without any recollection of a negative thought being entertained by subby. Yes a thoughts would try to enter the gates but they were summarily dismissed by the watchman. And yes I was feeling quite proud of my self, confident, secure in the knowledge that ” I can be what I will to be.” and I will to be a more conscious and confident human being.

Then slam back to Day 1 with a kicker!
I have my weekend routine up at 4 am get ready to roll, feed Clementine, out the door at 5 am stop at Walgreens for hydration, or whatever I might need when I get to work at 5:30 am
But this particular Sunday was different I walked in with my earbuds in listening to the Master keys audio and headed for the cooler in the back because I was thinking that an Arizona Tea  would go really well with the masterkeys  and was going to taste awfully good right then;  when I realized there was a new girl at the counter and she was speaking to me so I pulled out my ear bub and apologized for not hearing her when she told me that I needed to leave my backpack at the front counter. Well there you have it…I wish I could say that I just said ok and left it and went and grabbed my drink but nooooooooo instead I said I have been coming in here every day for  three years and I have never had to leave my backpack and I am not leaving it today. And I said it quite emphatically and I left.
Now here is where we have to pay strict attention to the goings on here. There was actually a very good reason why I did not want to leave my back pack and that is because on the weekends I am the bank. I carry extra cash to be able to change the $50′s and $100′s that are going to be wanting to be changed through out the day on the course and in the Restaurant.
So naturally I don’t want give up my back pack, but I was taken by surprise and I didn’t handle the situation properly and put undue strength and emotion into my words and this is what happen. And my mistake I went over this in my mind as a justification and oh boy ,it took more than 7 seconds ….lol
That negative thought wized on past the stunned watchman at the gate and made a B-line for subby who in turn tossed it around to  those 40,000,000 peptides that were now standing at attention just waiting to create  by the justification,  What I will call a money suck….lol
For the past few days no matter how much I know I have in my wallet when I go to spend it it’s not all there, sometimes none of it it there….lol
So today after having this happen for the third time I had to laugh because I realize that I created this myself a negative cash flow because let my concentration lasp and subby decided that I wanted it to manifest loss from my unexpressed fear of losing money which I gave dynamic thought by accident.
So I have forgiven myself and promise to be ever watchful for those little situations created to… throw you off guard…test you…. if you will or….Just give you a slap back when you are getting to to big for your britches.

So at week 11 I know I have the power to create the life I want. I just have to be more conscientious about not being reactionary when someone upsets my peace of mind.

I’m trying,  but it’s hard

 

Week 9 Making More Progress

So I made it through 4 days on the mental diet. I was flat on my back with a cold and never left the house…..lol
Last week I had the experience of watching myself ride from the perspective of being outside of myself and being able to effortlessly avoid the pitfalls of traffic. This week I’m noticing bubbles as if I’m in a bubble and everything is on the outside. At first I just thought I was seeing the rim of my glasses. I took my glasses of but it was still there in my periphery for a moment and then it was gone. I thought Oh my future self in a glass bubble and the thought was gone. VISUALIZE
Day 5 on my mental diet was quite interesting because my main source of negative input was to think the thought of why can’t the cook stop verbalizing how broke he is and underappreciated he feels it is annoying. ACCEPTED
So last week I taped up and affirmation on his work station that I have used all my adult life I love my job, I love the people I work with, I love the people I serve, THE UNIVERSE PROVIDES FOR ME” I had been trying to get him not to dwell on his situation but sometimes it is very difficult to help someone who is in a desperate state of mind, without passing an OPINION.
This week day 5 he comes in happy and excited because somehow some money miraculously came into his life and he was able to solve and immediate problem. I said ” See the affirmation worked”. He looked at me with a curious look of guilt and asked How thinking that, I love my job, I love the people I work with and I love the people I serve, is going to do anything? The funny part is he was not reading it from the post it I wrote it on. He had memorized it. I know that he thought about it a great deal and wished with his whole heart and soul that something so simple could actually work. And for that exact moment in time, it just did! JOY
Another wonderful thing to happen this past week was to present to my coworkers an Idea for raising some money to get some repairs done where we work. I had presented this idea to my mastermind tribe a couple weeks ago and had received a lot of support for the idea so I presented it to my work tribe and they are so on board that they are willing to volunteer their time to make this idea work. So that takes care of the 2 main objections that our boss would have payroll and security. Next step. The presentation. CONFIDENCE
Today is day 7 and I know that I must have had some negative thought in the last 2 days but I can’t remember what it might have been or when it may have occurred because I have been walking around in a bubble. HAPPINESS
I feel that I am making progress with my PPNs which are Spiritual Growth and Recognition For Creative Expression. When I started on this journey with the MKMMA the hardest part was to think about what I wanted for my self. MY DEFINITE MISSION PURPOSE I had always had a purpose and my purpose was and is to help enrich the lives of others. This has been my mission since I was 8 years old when I became aware of the duality of mans nature as I worshiped in a southern church 1959. FORGIVENESS

So At the end of week 9, I feel BLESSED
I feel Blessed that wake up every morning with love in my heart
I feel Blessed that I work in an enviornment where everyone really cares for each other
I feel Blessed that the UNIVERSE brought me here at this time to the MKMMA so that I can expound on my basic knowledge of the ” WHY” because the knowledge of the “WHY” is what is helping me build a better bridge. CONFIRMATION

Week 8 Breathe…in 1,2,3,4….breath out…1,2,3,4,5,6..REPEAT!

I actually couldn’t believe this but is happening. and right now I am a bit giddy. I don’t have the opportunity to catch the webinars live, so I always have to wait for them to be posted. What is posted early is the Master keys audio which I listen to repeatedly while I am riding to wherever I have to go. When Mark read lines 30 and 31 of the Master Keys as I was listening to the audio it ht me like a ton of bricks and everything became crystal clear.
Taking a material object and deconstructing it back up from the material plane, through all planes of existence back up to the inception of the divine thought leaves little bread crumbs for our divine thoughts to follow down to manifest in the material world. Not very technical but works for me! (I chose the radio for my object, going to take me a bit longer that a week to deconstruct…lol)

Any way a strange thing happened. An Idea that I had been thinking about in the back of my mind for 4 years, came kicking and screaming to the forefront of my mind with such force that I had to verbalize it to my tribe right then. It was of the utmost importance at that moment in time.
This is my thought. I believe that the work I have been doing and the inkling of clarity I gained through recognizing conceptually, the visualization of the deconstruction of that battleship, shook the cobwebs off that Idea, that I felt strongly about, though in the back of my mind, because this is it’s time.

This belief changed my perception and the focus of my attention. Many times I have remarked that I have been on the 7 day diet yet have been unable to get through a day without holding a negative thought for less than 15 seconds because of unthinking drivers.
Today was different. As I listened to the master keys over and over as I rode I could hear the very steady click of my boot slipping in my clip as the peddle rotated and then it happened. I was suddenly aware that I was not feeling the sensations of me riding, instead it was like I was watching myself ride and it was quite enjoyable even though I encounter the same unthinking drivers, they are a fact of my life as a cyclist. This will not change. As I watched I saw myself go around and avoid them with ease as if they were simply a rock or twig or any other small obstacle in my path and not one word was uttered or gesture made.
I realized in that moment that I can’t change how the world reacts to me, but I can change how I react to the world. Tomorrow I will welcome day 2 YAY!

Today is Tuesday. Last night I could not get the webinar replay to play past 3:21 and then it stopped I tried accessing it from different browsers, different links and nothing. Tonight I tried again I got as far as 16:46 before it stopped and another eureka moment, they are talking about exactly what I just described happening to me. I had to stop and write this. I hope I can get all the way through it tonight because I can’t wait!

I know how I came to be here, I know why I am here and what I hope to gain from the experience. I have gained so much already, because I have the understanding that no matter what it is, this is my personal journey.
I am very grateful for the MKMMA experience
“Dreams are woven from the threads of our thoughts on the loom of our imaginings.”

Week 7: Is that you Old Blueprint?

You are not talking so loudly this week, I can still hear you but you seem to be getting farther away.
So I have noticed subtle changes in myself these past two weeks. I believe I have gotten a bit calmer internally due to the sits. I definitely have developed a bit more patience and my memory recall is improving as well.
Last week I stuck up all my shapes with my PPN’s and POA’s all over my walls and mirrors and cabinets and spent this week picking them up off the floor and retapping them. A few weeks ago I probably would have picked them up, balled them up and thrown them in the trash…..lol I guess you could say I’m growing! I also seem to be a little more patient in my daily travels with those unconsciencious people that can’t pry themselves from there phones for a 25 minute drive to work. I forgive you for you make me sing. Amazing Grace!
I have noticed that I am more appreciative of myself and I begin to recognize the things I do for others have value, and in turn I find more to do. Even if it is just picking up the trash that you opened your car door and dumped on the street at the stop light….lol Must be it’s all that telling my self I love me…because I really do like the gal in the glass!
In being that obsserver I have become even more aware just how uncaring people are to the earth they live on and the people they live on it with. But I care for them and send them thoughts of love and joy because they show me the work that needs to be done.
I am patient and hold my tongue when the cook starts his daily internalization rant about all that he does and how broke and under apprecitaed he is. I left him an affirmation for the law of attraction on his prep table. I wish him wealth and prosperity for he makes me grateful for all that I have.
I look forward to the time that I spend with my family and my grandson. They are the light in my life. I raised my daughter alone after my divorce and I had to sacrafice my singing career to make sure that my daughter had proper supervision during her teen age years. And for that I was blessed with a loving daughter, a caring son-in law and a beautiful grandbaby. They make me feel loved and cared for and I love and care for them….even if they do beat me at jenga….lol
The fun part is that when I watch my grand son, I have my PPN’s and my POA’s right there …they just happen to be named Elmo, Oscar, Cookie Monster and Big Bird…..lol

Week# 6 ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oooh I’ve Got A New Attitude!

Well it was again a tough week. I found out that I am a very opinionated person. Well I knew that going in. But it is not like I just go spouting opinions unsolicited. Ok so yes I do! Because children popping wheelies, in the bike lane, in the street, with no helmets, going in the wrong direction, need to know that that is unsafe.
And I did suggest to a driver that if he wanted me to know he was turning right, a signal would be very nice. Oh yeah I’m a bike commuter and a Mom, so these things are relevant to my safety and theirs.
Other than that, I did a good job of biting my tongue. But I realized that most of the stuff I pass opinions about is stuff I really have no control over changing So ding.. ding.. ding. Why have an opinion about it at all?
Got my dream board done and it is looking pretty good took a picture and set it on the lock screen of my phone so every time I pick that up I have a reminder to keep my dream alive and thriving in my mind. I made a couple of them, one large one smaller. Glad I live alone because my house looks like a circus with all the shapes and colors everywhere. But hey I feel great…maybe too great! Let me tell you what happened. I was walking along enjoying the day yesterday noticing how clear blue the sky was and the beautiful fluffy white clouds and how the fronds of the palm trees glistened in the sun. It was a beautiful day and I had a big smile on my face.
I said hello to everyone I happen to pass with that big smile, some said hello back, some just ignored me, but one man asked me if I was alright with concern in his voice. YIKES! But I said not a word…lol
Today’s mission I was armed with more than a smile. As I rolled along anyone I passed that was waiting for the bus, I stopped and paid their way. Some people were very receptive and loved it; some acted as if I was saying that I thought they needed money, by telling me that they could pay their way or they had a bus pass. But I passed no opinion. I simply said ” This is my good deed for the day.” That they understood they thanked my for the thought and blessed me and I was back on the hunt for my compass.
Now I have three compasses. One is mounted on my bike, one taped up beside the gal in the mirror and one to just kinda play with because it’s cool!….lol
I had a great week! And it’s getting better all the time

Week 5: Things are starting to move

So here I am at week 5 and I am starting to see tangible results for my MKEMMA association. I had been struggling for a couple weeks but in that struggle I broke one of my biggest time wasting habits. Binge watching television on my days off. freeing time for me to work on actions to bringing my DMP closer to realization.
I have actually broken the tV watching habit completely and have rediscovered my own library and I have totally found a new perspective for my daily activities. I look forward to my reads and my sits and I feel much more relaxed about doing them and time is no longer an issue.
This might not sound as if it is a big accomplishment for someone else but for me this is huge! If I can brake that habit in 5 weeks the positive things I can do with another 5. Can’t wait. Keep on working you 40,000,000,000 little buggers.
Another huge step for me is sharing with my Marco Polo Tribe….it’s not the sharing part…it’s the camera part….I hate to be on camera…but I love to take pictures. But i’m getting better and sharing with my tribe is helping me to get in touch with my authentic self.
In my line of work image and hype is the thing and sometimes you can get lost in your own hype and totally lose your identity; because if you are not on the top, it can be a very transient business with musicians and agents coming and going and all taking a small piece of your “creative endeavors” with them until you wake up one morning and you are just fresh out of ideas and you are stuck.. You want to move forward but like the golden Buddha, your feet are covered in cement.
Well not anymore! Thank you MKE for being the instrument of my revitialization, giving me the strength to chip away at my cement and help me move forward to my Goal. Thank you Lori my Guide for kicking me in the butt to get on Marco Polo and share with my tribe.
And last but not least….Thank you all for reading this!
I have to say things are starting to move and take shape. Looking forward to the next part of the journey,
