LOVING THIS WEEK
It’s been wonderful reviewing a few weeks and seeing things that were extremely challenging a couple of months ago – like growing a plant in your mind from a seed – now much easier.
Nature’s Greatest Miracle, eh?
The experience of tremendous concentration and using the Laws of the Mind to gain a brilliant insight are often followed by a search for my sunglasses or car keys. Feeling brilliant one second and like a primate the next second is something most people torture themselves with.
I really want to encourage you around my favorite Law of the Mind – The Law of Practice.
Master Key students for years, just like those who attempt to read the Scrolls, seem to have unrealistic expectations about how fast they should learn and grasp the material.
Temptation is really good at it’s job. You are on the cusp of greatness and tempation to be hard on yourself, skip assignments or start making excuses regarding time are normal reactions to being confronted about the Hero’s Journey. Actually I should say realizing you’ve been invited to take the Hero’s Journey and reclaim the magnificent, Divine Spark that resides within you.
It’s normal. Relax.
Every year Vince Lombardi would walk into the locker room on the first day of practice and hold up a football. The room would quiet down. Lombardi would bellow, “Gentelmen, this is a football.”
Green Bay went on to win 5 championships in 6 years, it’s never been matched.
What does this have to do with the Hero’s Journey?
Lombardi kept it simple and those great Packer teams drilled on basics over and over and over again.
Simply utilize the flash cards, the mind gym and keep reviewing the 7 Laws of the Mind so you become a better operator of the mechanism. Let’s not forget the basic premise: creating a demand in the subconscious.
The demand, once created and backed with a burning desire, will help inspire the subconscious to find the supply – you know this – so avoid the temptations and distractions and focus on the Law of Practice and good old coach Davene…….. who likes to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is a flash card”.
We thought you might be interested in a little video about Joseph Campbell, George Lucas and the Hero’s Journey you are about to take.
