Please let me share with You powerful break trough that Martin in my tribe experienced through masterminding with other members!
This is so awesome:
Week 10 -Influences and mirrors
Lots going on in my head at the moment. What are the various thoughts that are “influencing” me.
Earlier in the week I was reading Billys post, and it really resonated with me. I realized that I was addicted to the behavior of having “corrective” discussions in my head with various people.
Let me explain what I mean by corrective. In my work situation we have a staff member that is overloaded with work, to such an extent that she is unable to do certain important functions. An example is that our financial statements (we are accountants, how’s that for irony) were initially promised to the bank in late October, and have still not been finalized. My partner who this lady reports to, and I have had many discussions regarding employing someone to help her, to ease the work load, and he has agreed to employ another person. This situation has been ongoing for some time, but has reached a critical stage in the last 2 months. Whenever we talk about this, there is always a reason why he hasn’t taken steps to employ another person. So what happens to me, is that I find myself having this “conversation” with him, in which I take him to task about not acting as we had discussed.
This is just an example, and I have many such “conversations” in my head. They are not necessarily negative, but they are never positive. I realized that I am addicted to these conversations. That was my first revelation. I decided that I would deal with this by observing my behavior, and noting down the thoughts which I was “discussing” with myself, with an agreement with myself to either discuss it with the respective person at the first opportunity, or if this was not done to dismiss them. I am having some success with this.
I am fortunate to have a Master Mind with two other members, Tobie and Reenen, and we meet once a week to discuss our experiences and thoughts relating to this course.
When I mentioned to them my conversation outlined above, Tobie pointed out to me that what I see in other people (my interpretation of my world without) is a mirror of either what is going on inside me, or of what I am judging. I refer you to Tobie’s post here. The second video relates specifically to this.
I subscribe to Mike Dooleys’ Notes from the Universe, and this was yesterdays note.I found it quite freaky, as i received it 3 hours after our meeting.
“Lo and behold, before your very eyes, Martin, and all around you, is a reflection of what lies within.
Glad we cleared that up.
Normally I say BAM, but this was the opposite of BAM, the problem is not my partner but me. Now I’m not sure why it’s taken me 10 weeks to get this second revelation as this is not exactly new. I have known this before this course, and Haanel has written as follows regarding this, and it is repeated continuously.
From Part 1: 8. The world without is a reflection of the world within. What appears without is what has been found within. 12.The world without reflects the circumstances and the conditions of the consciousness within.
So I ask myself how come I only realise this now. I see now that I was looking at it in a narrow sense of cause and effect relating to situations, and not necessarily at the people and my attitudes regarding them, around me. The only answer I’ve got is that it’s a massive blind spot. I’m sure Dominica will agree. Thanks to my Mastermind partners in being honest with me. As Napoleon Hill says no one succeeds without a master mind.
So now that I’ve identified this blind spot, what do I do. Some more Haanel, from the introduction to week 3 – Eliminate, therefore, any possible tendency to complain of conditions as they have been, or as they are, because it rests with you to change them and make them what you would like them to be.
And how do I do this, Haanel again from part 1 – 9. Harmony in the world within will be reflected in the world without by harmonious conditions, agreeable surroundings, the best of everything. 11. Harmony in the world within results in optimism and affluence; affluence within results in affluence without.
So there I have it, I need to create harmony within. I have much work to do, and this I know will be by the law of growth. As Og says in the 3rd scroll –
I will persist until I succeed.
Henceforth, I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.
I am grateful to so many people for insights and revelations. Keep shining your light, you don’t know where and how far it reaches.Love be the way.
