Yup, I’m back to the Golden Buddha story from week 4. I am having a very difficult time “hearing” my dream that is calling. Years and years of accumulated “cement” from “doing the right thing” and living within the guidelines of what is “normal” and expected of me has taken its toll on me. Yes, I know, people that know me will probably question me being or acting “normal.” *grinning* I will start reaching out to the guides associated with the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) for more help and guidance with this.
I did have a huge epiphany this week though, while at home enjoying the time with my wife, waiting on her hand and foot, while she recovers and fighting with snow removal…”I welcome obstacles as they are my challenge.” In week 9 of our read, paragraph 15 states: …Visualization is a very different process from seeing; seeing is physical, and is therefore related to the objective world, the “world without,” but Visualization is a product of the imagination, and is therefore a product of the subjective mind, the “world within.” It therefore possesses vitality; it will grow. The thing visualized will manifest itself in form.” All my life I have loved to take a problem or an issue and use my mind, I understand now that it was and is my ‘imagination’ to bring about a solution for it. Something as simple as looking at our bedroom to solve the problem of installing a padded head board and two night tables triggered this epiphany. I mounted the head board to the wall which created a problem of the night tables being too low. “Concentrate Danielson!” echos in my head from Karate Kid and Mark J’s training video… Deep concentration, thought, imagination…brings me to a visualization of the night tables being mounted on the wall at the correct height. Deeper concentration, thought and imagination creates the details of ‘how’ to mount the night tables to the wall. Hours later, “it is done.” I was able to create something in the world within and bring it into reality in the world without. WOW!
I am going back into my ‘sits’ and I am going to chip through more cement to hear my dream that is calling. I am always very appreciative of anyone that is willing to share their epiphanies, advice, or just plain leave me a comment. Bless you all and may you find your true purpose in life and live it while you still can.
