Week 10 -BUSTED & What blank space?
This is so very late…..no, you are not going to hear an excuse. It’s late!
The Week 10 video was a real bust for me. All these weeks I have been diligently making sure I have completed all the tasks, checked them off, and felt accomplished. Then Mark publishes the video. What a bust! Yes, every homework assignment was a check list.
So since Sunday, I have been the observer. Has any of this great stuff become a good habit? Well, I am happy to report that my sit is something I became very possessive of from about Week 2. My day begins with a sit, no matter what! I purposefully get out of bed (definitely with the help of an alarm) at 515 am to have that precious time.
10:24 This week select a blank space on the wall,or any other convenient spot, from where you usually sit,….
Anxious to do the exercise described, I situated myself in my sit and spent a good bit of time looking about me, searching for a blank space. There are none! So, would it be a tragic error to do the exercise with my eyes closed? Possibly, but until the lack is remedied, this, I would have to do.
The solution was made clear to me during my Tribal meeting. My attention was drawn to a very large dry erase board which has been ‘sort of’ stored until I could unload it on someone. The board is a large rectangle of white blankness. “Use that”, came a voice from within. So that is what I did yesterday and again today.
Yesterday went fairly smooth. I was able to mentally draw the square, the circle, and then develop the cone.
10:25 If you can do this, you are making excellent progress and will soon be enabled to concentrate on any problem you may have in mind.
Today, I had a problem. I put that problem ‘on the board’ during my sit. By this afternoon, the issue was beautifully handled. I did not offer an opinion nor did I try to bust anyone. Huge behavior change for me!!!
It is the little things that continue to blow my mind. And I need to remember to celebrate them.
I am whole, perfect, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.
I believe it!!!
