You can call me… Al?
One of the last gifts I opened at our family Christmas – Happy Birthday to my Mother celebration – is for me, the opportunity to take on a new roll in life, and a new name, that I get to choose – so I’m trying out four of them – Yaya, Nonna, Abuelita, or GG – my son and his wife are having a baby! *Yes, the same daughter-in-law that crashed and burned last week.
I am currently leaning heavily toward Nonna, my husband’s mother’s name was Winona and my children called her Grandma Nona – I had no real connection that in Italian grandma is Nonna. A special place in my heart would be – to be to my grandchildren what Jay’s dear mother was to my own children. A close second is Abeulita – we called my next door neighbors grandmother Abeulita – little grandma.
If you have special names for your grandparents 0r that you are called by your grandchildren please share them – the next six months will fly and I want to be well practiced for this new name I get to choose.
This weeks lesson without a Webby – thought is a spiritual activity and therefore endowed with creative power – think about that for a moment. A thought has the power to create – and multiple thoughts strung together create the fabric of a life. This concept is becoming more and more clear to me. I also am doing much better without the Webby this week than last break – I can do this – I am putting forth the effort the hard mental labor to make these Laws and these lessons, the Positive Mental Lifestyle, Og and the sit my own and their place in my life is not insignificant nor will it end at anytime in the foreseeable future.
The sit this week has been the largest impact, from the MK lesson this week – (I’ll talk below about my, growing huger by the passing moment love for a Mastermind) – concentrate on Harmony, concentrate so deeply, so earnestly, that you will be conscious of nothing but harmony.
I am realizing that enthusiastic feeling – is good (really, really good) however, enthusiastic harmonious feeling is the – The standard by which I seek to make the life a I want – my Definiteness of Purpose – my burning desire – my dharma – my bliss be what I live daily.
Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view. – George Mathew Adams
What a synchronicity this week – I declared the weeks of December to each represent one of the four habits of persistence – I have sought high and low for music to represent each of the habits – I’ve wept, wailed, and gnashed my teeth (I even entertained thoughts of writing my own music to fill the space I feel in my heart – don’t worry I controlled the impulse – you can thank me later) I feel at peace with my musical offerings (let’s send 2016 out with a glorious noise of music – three, who’d have thought). The songs play a very small part in the synchronicity – I have had multiple conversations with people in my life this week about being part of Masterminds – forming Masterminds – what constitutes a Mastermind – what a gift.
I would be remiss to not mention my Mastermind partner – my best friend Jay – thank you for all you do – an for not kicking me out of the Mastermind (or our bed) when I am not in harmony – you can read about his MKE journey here. I have a friend, Kelly, that works in the health field and has developed over more than two decades a body/emotion connection modality that is absolutely fascinating – he calls it Ematosoma. He spoke around the edges of what we are studying and journeying on in the MKE and invited him to learn more about it. I am so blessed to have an OATS team and Mastermind with my personal Wonder Women friend – the indomitable – the one and the only Sarah Dooley – what an amazing peace I have knowing that there is an anchor an immovable will leading a terrific group of people with one harmonious focus. I have had the opportunity to meet with my Magnificent MK Mastermind partner Brittany – what a gift you are – beautiful shining soul – you can read her blog. Finally let’s wrap up the beautiful habit of persistence – C is for Cookie – this monster is nothing if not persistent.
Four Habits of Persistence – Habit 4 A Mastermind Alliance – This last week of Scroll III – last week of December – last week of 2016 the benefits of a Mastermind Alliance are becoming more and more clear – two or more people working together in complete harmony for a definiteness of purpose. Finding just the right song was work – take the concept of a crime – that is mentioned one time in the first song and starve it – focus on the definiteness of purpose to make the most of opportunity and make lots of money – and the quintessential Bob Marley – One Love – Let’s Get Together and Feel Alright 🙂 Celebrate all that you did and did well in 2016 and celebrate that you can improve and get better in 2017 – I Love you all, my friends. Ha, ha you thought I’d forget my ultimate persistence song – poor old Johnny Ray – Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye… Come On Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners.
I’ll catch you next year 🙂
