‘Will’ is Powerless!
WHOA! That is a key takeaway for me in the third week of the Master Key Experience.
When I say I “will” be/do/have something, I am telling my “subby” there’s no rush…it will happen “someday.”
There’s just one problem…
The “subby” doesn’t understand “someday.” It only understands things that are specific.
In the past two weeks we’ve begun the process of “linking” the things we want with the things we need to do, and we do this in a playful way with colors, shapes, and tricks of the mind.
We’re creating new links to new habits.
But what about the old habits that are ingrained deep within our subconscious? They must be broken.
Thy “will” be done!
I’m now in the third week of reading Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World three times a day as directed in Scroll 1. (OK, I admit it, I’ve slipped a few times. Hey, I’m not perfect…just doing my best.)
This week, we changed it up a bit by marking out the word “will” in the Scroll, and when I performed this simple task, the changes in the text – as well as in my mind – were dramatically different.
Thy “will” be done!
By simply removing the word “will,” the scroll is infinitely more powerful to read and absorb. It’s a simple act, but it’s not easy…
You see, after reading “will” for two weeks, my “subby” occasionally still “sees” the word even though I’ve physically crossed it out in my book. When that happens, I re-read the sentence until I get it right.
This an exercise about breaking the links from our subconscious to our old/bad habits and creating links to new/good habits. I can already see the beginnings of change, in both my habits and my thoughts about the habits.
I am creating good habits. And I promise to perform these good habits often.
When I perform [an act] often it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit this is my will. ~ Og Mandino
Today I begin a new life. Thy “will” be done.
