Week 23 – Reflecting on Restoration
While driving today. I took inventory of how things are in my present state. My effort was guided towards the benefits of the class for myself and others. I feel like the path of restoration of the being I was born as; is very close to being complete.
I know exactly what is being done, how long it takes, where I’m going and what goals I have. My goals were what excited me the most and has left me in an absolute AWE of the process. Not a single goal is focused on me. When I heard the saying “What I want for myself, I want for others” struck a nerve.
I started writing down goals based on what I want for others. Then something fabulous happened. I was talking to a young man and I realized I am shifting to his benefit in all. I wanted so badly to capture that event, but instead merely observed the change that I’ve earned and the effect when people notice what your true motive is.
Finally, deep in silence, the gratitude seemed overwhelming of all the wonderful things that are added or taken away in my present life (habits). I’ve given the past away, the future is not my business, what am I doing efficiently at this moment. How can I bless everything around me?
I have taken the words of our daily practice and now live them, walk in true Faith. Catch my mind going off to someplace I don’t want to be, and simply choosing not to follow.
Here is something that happened when I arrived at an emergency call. 6 Electricians & the Maintenance Manager were standing at a Main Box and looked perplexed. One spoke, and greeted me and asked if I came to help. My answer, “I just put on my super cape and am here to solve the world’s problems”, “where do I need to be”.
OK, out there a bit, but dealing with that level of difficulty requires all of us to be of one accord. That worked and was not planned in any way. The creativity I had as a young child is back. I am no longer just complying in the world. I am Creating a better world, where I am, wherever that happens to be.
Taking the focus off of me and placing it where my NEEDS are; “helping others” has given me an energy that has nothing to do with what breakfast cereal I ate that morning.
Most of my life has involved solving problems. So I’ve been in/of service to others. My basic needs have been met with abundance. Now I see differently and ways to bring more abundance to all. Frankly that does excite me and am seeing that work in moment by moment of my daily experience.
MKMMA did provide the guidance, and were in service to many more than just those of this class. For that I am eternally grateful. As I look at the work I’ve done, few words have the mastery of describing all the benefits received in this experience.
I create what I want most. I heal myself & others; in spirit, mind & body in a loving, grateful & harmonious way. Mostly those around me are receiving a genuine being worth sharing time with.
Receive the Blessings that have already arrived…………
