Wow!!! A success story
It is early Sunday Morning. I am looking over the NEW Master Key material for the Sunday Afternoon webinar. I decide to read the Master Key Part 6 material and the assignment is to SIT for 10 minutes, focus on (1) picture and take every detail in. After the 10 minutes, close your eyes and try to visualize the picture and all the details. Cool assignment. I picked a picture of the Log Home we live in 3 years from now in Tennessee.
**KEY TAKE AWAY AFTER THE 10 MINUTE ASSIGNMENT: The ONLY way to focus that intensely is to "BE PRESENT AND IN THE MOMENT"
Fast Forward to 9:30 am that morning. We arrive at the church and as the service starts, I realize that the normal worship band is NOT on stage. Instead, it is the Youth Band. Hmmm, ok, this should be cool.
They get started and without realizing it, here are the thoughts going through my head:
1. Wow, they don't sound very good
2. She needs to pull the microphone away from her mouth and it will sound better
3. Wow, I sure wish the regular worship team was here today.
**KEY TAKE AWAY: "NOTHING BUT JUDGEMENT, OPINIONS AND OVERALL NEGATIVE"
**REVELATION: My judgement took me completely OUT of the Present and left me in a space that was completely negative.
**NEXT THOUGHT: I remembered the exercise from my early morning and I realized that I had the ability to change the circumstances by coming back into THE PRESENT MOMENT.
I remembered the Law of Substitution from the previous lesson and i immediately changed my focus from the Worship Band itself to the WORDS THAT WERE BEING SUNG. I closed my eyes and "GOT PRESENT". Within 60 seconds, I was caught up in the spirit of the words and all of a sudden, the judgement was GONE. It was awesome. I CAN Control my thoughts. I can change my reality by my thoughts.
Oh, how the opinions RUN deep and subconsiously but I am a vigilant "Watchman at the Gate". I have the POWER and it is up to ME to intentionally access it, apply it and benefit from it.
What an awesome day.
