Week 17-Ramblings from my heart

In the era of Facebook and Instagram, there’s so much pressure when it comes to pulling out all the stops while popping the question.

Utube videos  where the bride is surprised by a flash mob, as hundreds of people sing in harmony while also performing elaborate choreography. Oh, and it’s all conveniently captured from four different camera angles and spliced together in a film that racks up millions of views and goes viral!

But all of this “high bar” setting can slowly start to set up a false notion of what romance is. So can elaborate weddings and over-the-top honeymoons.

True love isn’t a man who will race through the rain down a crowded city street to passionately embrace his wife, beseeching her to return after a lovers’ quarrel.

Real romance doesn’t come with a hefty price tag or show its affections by emptying a bank account — or worse, by going into deep debt — in order to prove its sincerity.

Undying devotion isn’t flashy, wanting others  to cheer and applaud your showy efforts.

Authentic love isn’t proven by dramatic gestures, expensive rings or attention-getting tactics. Not at all.

It doesn’t claim that love is showy, but steady. It describes true love — the kind which comes from our creator or Universal mind and is in turn shown to others — by asserting that love “… bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Bear: to properly place under a protective covering

Believe: to be utterly persuaded to be true

Hope: to actively wait for  fulfillment

Endure: to stand your ground, bearing up against hardship

So maybe, true love looks more like this:

It’s the steadfast presence of you, the willingness to stick it out when things get rocky. To demonstrates love when no one else is looking. True love is wholly committed, costing time and effort. It gives with no expectation of recognition or return.

Week 16- Kindness

My favourite time of the master key experience, kindness week.

Just 2 random acts of kindness without getting caught, boosting blogs, compliments, smiles, thank you’s and holding doors open, gathering up carts in the parking lots, all lead to massive change within me and my world.

How cool is that?

All the master key students, guides and staff start a tremendous ripple that goes around the world. Many students and guides live in France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and the United States to name just a few countries. Just imagine all those people in their own communities bring love, hugs and great feelings of wonder to so many, and the ripples start flowing.

I feel so grateful being part of a cause so much bigger than myself, I am constantly in awe of the effects in myself and my immediate world.

The big payoff for me is the immediate improvement in my life the day I started the MKE and the continally unfolding of knowing the authentic me, and enjoying deep rich relationships with my family and friends.

I am on a path of self discovery, that is limitless. I am nature’s greatest miracle and I share it with the world.

Week 14 & 15-Shot in the dark

I am so blown away by winter’s sparkling diamonds in the sunlight, every turn on my path through the woods has me gasping for breath. I marvel at its beauty and wonder how this is created just for me. It seems it has been placed on my path for my enjoyment alone. It helps me ease my worries and sort out random thoughts, linking color, shapes finding natural conclusions without thinking about it, wandering in the woods just being me, stopping to observe small nests, trickling brooks, the view over snow laden fields, observing the coyote tracks near the edge of my property.

Without focusing on how; my aimless walks sort out more than I realized, in the quiet, my mind slows and I find myself smiling. Just being grateful for the view. I know we are following a more enlightened path, observing, loving being grateful, so being part of MKMMA we become nature’s greatest miracle. I joyously take a shot in the dark.

Week 13- Christmas and family

I wanted the perfect Christmas, all my family speaking to each other and enjoying just being together.

So I just believed in the miracle this year and it happened.

I brought my mom home from the nursing home and my sister and her husband came over for lunch, they had not visited my mom in 2 years. They had many excuses for not visiting(old resentments) but my persitence paid off, and I saw the most wonderful smile on my Mom’s face, and many times she said, “this has been a really good day.”

My mom has dementia and for her to articulate those words was a Christmas miracle in my eyes.

I am reminded, that my closeness to my mom allows me to understand how much this meant to her, and that is just a blessing.

I am so grateful

I persist and I win!

Merry Christmas

Week 11 & 12- The Sit


Oh, to be like Superwoman. To step into that phone booth as mild-mannered Clark Kent and step out as Superwomn — fit, flamboyant, ready to fly off and change the world!

But here I am, full of to do’s as I come into my sit and later opening my eyes — same old list staring me in the face. Clark Kent is transformed. I’m not.

Forget the sit. I want a phone booth.

Friends, it’s not the sit. It’s me.

I’m not sitting alone. I’m with God Almighty, the Universal Mind and I play the part of Clark Kent, the reporter.

I report the news. I tell what’s happening. I provide all the details. I fill my time with words.

They’re broke. They need money. He’s gotta find a job.

Oh my she’s terribly sick. There’s so much she should be doing.

It’s the big game. The team has worked hard. They really want to win.

Good little reporter that I am, I don’t just describe what’s happening. I tell the universe what needs to happen.

This job is perfect for him. They have to hire him.

Heal her. Get her back to work.

Give them the victory. They deserve it.

One day, I step into my sit, a bigger to do list than usual.

This is such a mess! I don’t know what they should do. You’re the all-seeing, all-knowing Universal mind. You tell me.

I sense the response:

Ah, you’re catching on.

Who am I to tell Universal mind what to do? He’s omniscient and omnipresent. I can’t tell Him anything He doesn’t already know.

I learn to check my Clark-Kent self at the begining of my sit. I speak less and listen more. Universal Mind grants me glimpses from His perspective.

He loves money too much.

She needs to be still and know that I am the beginning and the end.

They want that trophy more than they want Me.

I’ve been thinking about what I want and asking Universal Mind to save the day Superman-style, to provide the quick fix, the happy here-and-now. But Universal Mind looks at the long term, what’s best for eternity. An easy life produces flabby souls. Temporary trouble can be a stepping stone to superwoman character.

I learn to trust universal Mind’s plan over my do to list.

Please teach me to store up my treasure in heaven.

Surround her hospital bed with your presence.

Win or lose, may they play glory.

And that hopeless mess?

Your will be done. I am in the flow, harmony reigns in my life.

Superwoman is taking her cape off for good
