I´ve always had a temper, well as long as I can remember, anyway, and at some point I learned that anger comes from feeling powerless. That actually disturbed me quite a bit, I didn´t want to admit powerlessness even to myself, much less showcase it to the world. Still I had a temper…
We´ve been asked in the Master Key Experience to think of ways how to use a few “negative” emotions as tools to advance our journey and move out of the comfort zone – one of these feelings being anger.
Hmm, I thought that would be a tough one…
Very soon I realized that a lot had changed, a few weeks ago I shared a major insight in my post “Stimulus – Choice – Response” and this just got even clearer.
I can´t even count all the situations that would have had me reacting, and limit myself, with anger or one of the other emotions. It seemed I have been to busy focusing on all the miracles around me to even consider “losing my temper”.
Frankly, I just LOVE the Law of Growth and the other Laws of the Mind that we´ve been encouraged to utilize during this experience.
Referring back to last weeks post “Old habits die hard…” I just have to admit being a little to hard on myself. While I certainly had kept (and still have…) some old bad habits, I need to give myself a pat (or two) on the shoulder for those I managed to let go.
Interesting how so many of us act as our own worst critic, something I didn´t even was aware of most of the time before and, when I was aware, I found it totally justified. At the end I knew that I wasn´t enough, ever felt similar?
Well, isn´t it great that we all just made that up, that, at some point in our lives, for some (at the time perfectly logical) reason, we learned to feel this unworthiness and during most of my life I never even questioned the truth of that belief. Have You?
Personally I like the second alternative, living life as though everything is a miracle, a lot better and that presupposes that we are all miracles as well.
It´s like this thing about belief (discussed in an earlier post here), just finding a slightly different angle gives us a totally new experience at times.
“17. Do not hesitate to aspire to the highest possible attainments in anything you may undertake, for the mind forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will in the effort to crystallize its highest aspirations into acts, accomplishments, and events.
19. There is no limit to what this law can do for you; dare to believe in your own idea; remember that Nature is plastic to the ideal; think of the ideal as an already accomplished fact.
26. As long as the people regard the Cosmic power as a power non-human and alien to humanity, so long will it be comparatively easy for a supposed privileged class to rule by Divine right in spite of every protest of social sentiment. The real interest of democracy is therefore to exalt, emancipate and recognize the divinity of the human spirit. To recognize that all power is from within. That no human being has any more power than any other human being, except such as may willingly be delegated to him. The old regime would have us believe that the law was superior to the law-makers; herein is the gist of the social crime of every form of privilege and personal inequality, the institutionalizing of the fatalistic doctrine of Divine election.
27. The Divine Mind is the Universal Mind; it makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites; it does not act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy or wrath; neither can it be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy or petition to supply man with some need which he thinks necessary for his happiness or even his existence. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual; but when the individual understands and realizes his Unity with the Universal principle he will appear to be favored because he will have found the source of all health, all wealth, and all power.”
