“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
Mind Monsters… bah humbug!
For the past 10 weeks I’ve added a constant stream of musings about my Master Key Experience.
If you’ve been following my adventures from the beginning of this course, you’ve witnessed the emotional roller coaster ride up close and personal.
I believed I was the brave White Knight – fully armoured and charging forward with a mighty purpose on a quest to discover my future self, fully protected from the monsters of my mind. Can you even imagine my shock hitting a brick wall at full speed on my trusty steed this week?
I bounced off the wall – landed hard on my butt – sat there dazed for a few moments and wondered what had happened! Whoa! Where’d that wall come from? It wasn’t there yesterday!
Time stood still for 3 full days as I struggled to restore confidence, remount and ride off again. Inspiration and motivation were alarmingly elusive.
My progress in the intensive mind-altering MKMMA course had even impressed the guy in the mirror! And that was no easy feat! I mean, who else do you know sets out to retrain their brain by chipping away the concrete barriers from years of non-productive programming?
Mind Monsters Reframe Reality
This week I felt more like Don Quixote tilting at windmills than the powerful White Knight! My vision was blurred from hitting the wall at full speed and the monsters around every corner seemed way too real to suit me. I knew I had to get back to reality if I was going to survive this adventure… or would I?
Time for another heart-to-heart with the guy in the mirror…
He always cuts to the chase: “C’mon, Dennis – get with the program! You’re not fighting the foul forces of evil here, it’s simply your old blueprint trying to drag you back into the wicked vortex of worry, doubt, fear and limited possibility.
And it’s all a crock! You have unlimited possibilities, fear is false, damn the doubt and stop worrying!
Get back on your trusty steed ‘cuz you’ve still got a few more dragons to slay before this journey’s over. You made the commitment and you always keep your promises.”
Frickin’ guy in the mirror is SO demanding! But I do love him so I listen intently when he talks to me. I got this one…
Persistence: Worth it’s Weight in Gold
Fortunately I have been working diligently on mastering the skill of persistence with the tools from MKMMA sessions. Can’t honestly call it mastery yet, but it’s a fine work in progress. Habits work!
Now I’m back in the groove – recovered from hitting the wall and punted the mind monsters in a lengthy but successful battle. Plugged back in to my recorded affirmations and read
Scroll III again to kickstart my day at 6 AM.
My new blueprint is being creatively crafted to build the future I want to experience and setbacks like this week may occasionally surface. And when they do, the habits I’ve been forming (and becoming their slave) pay off big time!
Make it a great week in your neighbourhood and remember the mind monsters are only imagined stories the gatekeeper forgot to filter.
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.
How about you? What monsters did you battle this week? Did you win?
I welcome your comments.
’til next time…
