Week 24…the final lesson of this course. When I began 6 months ago, I had no idea where this would lead me. I was excited yet apprehensive, curious yet concerned. Would I be able to keep up with the work? What changes would this make in my life? Would it be worth the effort?
Well, yes I did keep up with the work. A few slips here and there, and then I’d get back on track.
Changes? Oh my! More even temperament! A feeling of hope that I can accomplish anything! Tools that I thought I understood before I now understand in a whole different light. New friends from all over the world who feel like family! More confidence in my abilities and dreams than I ever had before! A better relationship with my mother, my son, my daughter, and my hubby! Improved habits that keep me focused on my goals!
YES, it has been worth every bit of effort! And effort it has been. As Haanel says in 24-10, “Remember, and this is one of the most difficult as well as most wonderful statements to grasp…remember that no matter what the difficulty is, no matter where it is, no matter who is affected, you have no patient but yourself; you have nothing to do but to convince yourself of the truth which you desire to see manifested.” and 24-19, “Your life and your actions and your influence in the world will depend upon the degree of truth which you are enabled to perceive, for truth will not manifest in creeds, but in conduct.”
As I’ve written before, I’m a huge fan of The Greatest Showman. I finally got to see it a couple of weeks ago, and there is not a better explanation of the Master Key/Hero’s Journey experience than this song from that movie…
So to Mark, Davene, Derek, GG, Dayna, my guide Linda, my MasterMind partners Naila and Stephana, Tribe members Jim, Darlene, Donna, Tammy, Candy, and everyone else who ventured forth with me during these past six months, thank you for your presence in my life. You all have blessed me in ways I could never imagine and in ways I will never forget.
