This week I am honored to present a members blog who has been hard at work sorting out what it all means to him. There are some very interesting questions to ask of yourself as you read along.
This from a very sincere point of view, check it out.
We have all heard the phrase “Don’t Quit” or “Never Give Up” from a well intentioned family member, spouse, mentor or friend at one time or another in our lives. While their encouragement is most often related to a positive outcome on our behalves, there are times in a person’s life when they probably should Quit.
When an action or behaviour becomes fruitless and an obsession to persevere over powers our ability to think clearly or the object of our goals is detremental to the ultimate outcome, such as a compulsive gambler who is always looking for the next big score.
However, that is not the tale I want to talk about today. Today I would like to showcase what true desire and persistence truly look like. The kind of desire, persistence and collaboration that not only changes peoples minds, it changes their lives and ultimately reveals the greatness that has always been in them.
Have a look and read all about it here this story has changed many lives including that of the observer.
This time of the year as we head into the second half of the Master Key Experience, inexplicable events really start to unfold for many of the new members. It is evident for many that by being faithful to this course and to themselves by investing the small amount of time required into the exercises, sits and readings that huge doors hanging on small hinges begin to open.
Clearly for one member, opportunites are beginning to unfold and the roadblocks she may have encountered previously in her life are starting to yield to her right of way.
Could it be that forming good habits, believing that you are natures greatest miracle and then acting on your intentions could lead to the life you always wanted, or is just blind luck?
Find out for yourself and check it out here.
Just a short story today about an encounter I had the other day.
So, Dana and I stop in to do a little shopping the other day and as I am getting out of my car at Costco I am somewhat distracted by all of the activity of the crowds gathered for the after the holidays rush to get some great deals or return the things they did not want or need.
As I am walking toward the entrance, Dana says to me hey aren’t you going to give that guy a hand? I continue walking a few more steps clearly lost in my own sauce when her question finally sinks in, Huh? I say as I glance around and see an older man trying to lift a fully loaded banana box filled with his groceries out of his cart.
I ask him if I can give him a hand and he gladly accepted my offer. You know! he says with great conviction, I just turned 90 yesterday and these things are starting to get to be heavy, we laughed and chatted for a few moments. As I was starting to walk away he thanked me for my assistance and I hollered back to him, God bless you! He replied, “He already has that’s how I got to be 90″
That brief encounter with a total stranger has left me with a feeling of grace and complete gratitude all week and has once again reminded me to keep my eyes open for the possibilities and opportunities to be grateful in everything I do. It seems I needed him much more than he needed me, how awesome is that. Mac
