To be or not to be...is that the question?? I know I’ve used this sentence before but today it is a question inline with how I am feeling. What AM I “being” today?
I am reminded of the 3 questions Deepak Chopra suggests you ask yourself each day, then sit for (at minimum) 5 minutes with these questions fresh in your mind, then immediately upon completion of your sit write down whatever came to mind. These 3 questions are:
What do I want for my life?
What do I want from my life today?
In the Master Key Experience we are encouraged to stay away from the word “want” as it just encourages your mind to create more want. I pondered this for some time and realized the word “want” could be considered reasonable within the context of these questions. It is when you are answering these questions where you should avoid its use.
As an example – let’s work with the 2nd question “What do I want for my life?” The answer for me would be: “I want to live in Costa Rica with my family. I want each day to be filled with love and laughter. I want to live a simplistic life where what matters is how we are able to serve others.” If i were to repeat the above answer with the word “want” included – I would in essence be telling my subconscious mind to concentrate on wanting these things – hence creating more want in my life.
THIS is where we must remove the action of “want” from our answer and be conscious of the the words we have used to create the vision. As Haanel tells us words are the “highest form of architecture in civilization“. So…we remove ‘want’ (or desire, aspire, wish, crave – all the words which are pre-action to the results we aim to obtain) and rearrange the words to paint my vision as it truly exists now. This way when I repeat my answer I live it now AND my subconscious can get to work on creating my future reality as it already exists in my words. My answer could now read:
“I live in Costa Rica with my family, thoroughly enjoying days filled with love and laughter, living simply knowing I serve others daily.“
It still needs work. My vision needs to be SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed – including feelings which get you pumped!
“On or before January 1st, 2016 I live in Costa Rica with Walter, Gregory and Serafina, ecstatically embracing and thoroughly enjoying each day filled with an abundance of love and laughter. Through our multiple streams of income, amounting to $10,000 per month on or before June 25, 2015, I live comfortably and simply while enthusiastically providing service to others within my community and around the globe.”
I am blessed to have my vision within me. I am blessed to be able to express my vision. I am blessed knowing vision is reality. I am being who I am meant to be! Thank you for allowing me to share.
