As you can imagine (for those of you in the MKMMA class), I’ve been thinking about this statement a lot this week…
“Whatsoever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”
And I’ve got questions…
- If I really believe, really have faith that I will receive it, why do I need to repeat it over and over again? Do I have faith or not?
- In 11.19 it says, “We are thus thinking on the plane of the absolute and eliminating all considerations of conditions or limitation and are planting a seed which, if left undisturbed, will finally germinate into external fruition.” So how does one leave the seed undisturbed? Isn’t going back to our DMP over and over again disturbing it?
I know that we are doing all these exercises to help keep our focus on what we want to create in our life. But this idea of faith and seeing it done, as well as the section on not disturbing the seed has me wondering about going back over this over and over.
On the Sit front I did get inspired with an idea or two on how to manifest something in my DMP, so that was exciting.
Actually the sitting process kind of reminds me of a previous life when I was an advertising copywriter. Whenever I got a project I would absorb myself in the creative brief (an outline of the parameters of the project — i.e. what the message that was to be conveyed, target market etc.) and then I would put it away and sort of forget about it. And then later maybe driving home from work or in the middle of the night an idea would come to me.
So this weeks Sit had a sense of familiarity to it. I had a desire (come up with an ad that meets the needs of the creative brief) I had faith — I believed I would figure it out or that the answer would come to me. And then I received it manifested in a flash of inspiration, or a fully formed idea that I would write down and then flush out the next day.
So I have experience with this working. And I have questions on how the process goes in terms of leaving the seed undisturbed.
That’s it for this week.
