Week 5 – That place…of pleasant associations

I have shared about how much I love my SIT.  So much so, I have become very possessive of that time.

Here I am in Week 5 and Haanel tells me to ‘mentally select a place which has pleasant associations.’  And just like he writes, ‘ At first, you will find yourself thinking of everything under the sun, except the ideal upon which you desire to concentrate.’  True,  I did think of many places BUT they all had ideal aspects.

There weren’t really MANY places, just a couple. The first one was from my childhood.  A room in which my imagination flourished.  I felt very safe and absolutely anything was possible.  Another place is a beautiful park over looking the Hood Canal with the Olympic Mountains in the background.  The last place is very similar but not a park setting.  This one is a scene that smacks you in the face as you follow a curve in the road heading northwest.  As soon as you come out of the turn, your breath escapes your body involuntarily when your eyes focus on the magnificent sight of mountains, water, rocky beach, hundreds of eagles, all framed in majestic evergreen trees.

Exactly my question!  How do I pick one place?  So I sat peacefully, selecting the pieces I wanted in my ‘place which has pleasant associations’, and it is being built.  Wow!  What a place, too!!!  I have felt it’s wonder all day!  Tomorrow the mental picture will get more detail and with every SIT become more complete.  The prize awaits.  For ‘all life and all power is from within’.

Each new discovery is like a gift.  I love presents, who doesn’t?  Truly, every day is a celebration with GIFTS!!!!

I can be what I will to be!!!

I always keep my promises.
