Week – 4 – Wrestling with Clarity, Precision & Control Only To Discover Principles
As you all are traveling down the same road, some of us (maybe many) have a hard time really getting clarity on what we want. In my case, the blockage consists of so many options to choose from and telling myself that I am only diversifying my “portfolio” of activities to ensure maximum stability in my income and growth. Subby is calling my B.S.!
Subby says that’s not what you are doing, you don’t have the courage to commit to one or two things, to learn the skills and see success as you constantly reiterate. He doesn’t make these judgements per se but, the results speak volumes and remove the cloaking that I so cleverly put in place to disguise my fear of commitment and potential of failure.
Again to Haanel and the understanding that (#4-22) “The Universal cannot express through you as long as you are busy with your plans, your own purposes; quiet the senses, seek inspiration, focus the mental activity on the within, dwell in the consciousness of your unity with Omnipotence. “Still water runs deep;” contemplate the multitudinous opportunities to which you have spiritual access by the Omnipresence of power. ‘
I have been not shy or or weak, rather I have been arrogant to think that all my planning and strategizing can circumvent the order which is universal to all life. The bible says something similar in Matthew 6 25 – 26…
25 For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life.
As Og points out in the first scroll, “Nature already has supplied me with knowledge and instinct far greater than any beast in the forest and the value of experience is overrated”. So, I need not depend on gaining more book learning or experience as Og Mandino goes on to say, “Furthermore, experience is comparable to fashion; an action that proved successful today is unworkable and impractical tomorrow.”
Who in the Information Technology industry such as I could disagree. Everyday, new innovation make the experience of today obsolete and of little value. He goes on to say the “Only principles endure..”.
This course, these mentors and these documents and texts contain principles and habits worth of learning well and daily execution. I promise to learn these principles until they are the automatic responses of my mind, body and soul. It is through these principles that my thought becomes activated into matter, productivity, industriousness and a lifelong partnership with the universal to the betterment of all who understand and partake of its wisdom.
I Always Keep My Promises and Build a Foundation Upon These Principles!
