So I’m a little late this week again this week with my blog. I’m not sure if I’m just waiting for the right words to hit me or if I’m just procrastinating. I think it’s a little of both. But the it hit me. Earlier this week we had Martin Luther King Day, a day to honor an amazing man. There are a couple quotes of his that really hit me this week. One was what I posted above. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Wow. this goes directly in line with lesson 17. We focus on what we want. We work with the law of growth. The law of attraction. “If you wish to eliminate fear, focus on courage. If you wish to eliminate lack, focus on abundance.” The law of growth right there. That is what I am struggling with a little right now is focusing on courage, abundance, health. The positives not the negatives. However what I am figuring out is that I am recognizing when I am looking at the negative more often and am able to get away from that with the law of substitution.
This moves onto the other quote. “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” This again is right in line with what I’m studying. You get what you give. As soon as you truly wake up every day looking at your life as a service to others, as to how you can help other people this will begin to return to you. Get out of your old blueprint of your life and let go. The story of how tribes would catch monkeys. in Africa. The hunter takes a jar with an opening slightly larger than a monkey’s hand. He ties a rope around the neck of it using a knot, called a monkey’s knot which is a cradle of the rope around the jar. The hunter places some food in the glass jar, like rice or a banana slice. The monkey reaches his hand into the jar, grabs the food, making a fist with his paw. Now, the monkey’s dilemma: the monkey cannot get his hand out of the jar unless he drops the food. The neck of the jar is simply not wide enough. Of course, the monkey could drop the food and easily get his hand out, but it won’t.
The question is what are you holding onto that is not letting you become the person you were meant to be? I’m figuring that out.
Till next time
