Week 8 -No opinion, No negativity, No TV….
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Sunday I was unable to be on the live webcast. The difficulty was I knew I had to wait until today, Tuesday, to watch the replay. It was a hard wait because of the references to the webinar found in the workbook plus, I look forward to beginning my week revved up and raring to go.
I didn’t want to just check out the video, I wanted to sit and absorb the lesson as I would in class. Once that time became available, I began. Take away? I am so glad. Watching the replay, I was able to pause, rewind, and observe. There was so much great information shared by Mark and Davene. The guest speaker was terrific!!!
I am loving how everything is connecting. I am having a great time doing the Scroll II exercise of saying ‘in silence and to myself I __ address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence, these words ___ shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and echo in my voice: and his heart ___ be opened.’ It works!!! My testing ground was the Ladies’ Locker Room at the gym. Not a lot of joyfilled ladies…not until I joined the conversation. Can’t say that I have ever experienced that before. I rather liked it!!!
But no opinions was bad enough. Now work on 7 day Mental Diet… So far, my record is 9 hours. It was all over when, while preparing dinner, a piece of veggie dropped on the floor and as automatic as a door opening when you approach, swear words came out of my mouth. Unfortunately, I did not catch myself within 7 seconds, so I rebooted. Will 7 weeks be long enough for me to accomplish 7 days IN A ROW!?!?!?!?
Don’t forget, NO TV, too. Not a huge deal for me. We don’t subscribe to cable so we receive no television. However, we have access to streaming movies. Since the Master Key lessons began, I haven’t watched much and nothing in the last week because of the assignment. In retrospect, the movies I thought I was so enthused about were of little appeal to me. I wanted to read OG or Emmet or Ralph. Yes, little changes are happening.
I believe and am trusting the process. Which is why I am excited about December 4th. And you know why? Because Mark and Davene expressed such excitement and enthusiasm, I caught it.
So, I promise to do my very best to do all the readings, sits, and reciting with GUSTO. I want to be stunned.
I can be what I will to be!
