Wow!!!! This MKMMA experience continues to blow me away…we are really going deep now and it is exciting, challenging, overwhelming, and inspiring all at the same time. My printout of Haanel\’s Chapter 8 is loaded with highlights, notes, exclamation points, and stars. =) All the connections between Hannel, Og, and Law of the Mind are so cool! It is energizing to me when I make theses connections or when Mark or Davene suggest one and then I see it. Sentence 3 = Law of Substitution. \”You may freely choose what you think, but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law. Methods whereby we can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which we have found produce only undesirable effects are therefore of primary importance.\”
Visualizing and meditation have been somewhat a mystery for me. I have listened to a few audios on the topic, but I have not made them common practice in my everyday life. Thru \”the SIT\” I have come to realize that this is mental exercise and it does require real work meaning its not just sitting there and passively being ordained with a miracle. The SIT is done with a purpose and it requires concentration and focus. I\’m guessing most of us were never taught this skill in school…yet learning how to operate our brain/our mind is one of the most amazing and powerful skills we can develop. The SIT has been one of my most challenging aspects of this course. Thankfully, at this stage in the MKMMA experience I am now recognizing my improvement and actually look forward to my time during the \”SIT\”. It is time set aside to truly \”think\” and tap into the world within. IN the past I use to try to stick \”thinking\” in when I could…while taking a shower, driving, or cutting the grass. I wasn\’t really aware that there was a better way to \”think\”. Now I realize that setting aside time to be completely still and quiet is KEY. Time that I can truly connect with my world within, my true authentic self.
