Last night Tom and I had a discussion about our day, each in different situations, however, we both had a moment in our day when the mental house gets messy and pretty much summarized both of our mental house cleaning chores!
Here we go!!! Sometimes you spontaneously say things that don’t make you happy, your new blueprint is in place and you like what is going on but your life is impacted by so many gregarious situations that your brain falls back to your old blueprint and you react in an adverse way. Automatically you are rejecting your reactions to the situation and you realize that this is not how you want to be. So, it takes a great deal of regrouping to make you feel that you are getting back on the new blueprint path. Why does this happen, why do we let ourselves fall into the old blueprint? We do not feel any gratification responding with old blueprints, we feel much more gratification when we are able to think and reason and follow the new path that we have both set for ourselves.
So, on a positive note, the fact that we recognize our weaknesses, make adjustments and clean up our mess makes us stronger every day!
As Haanel says:
“We can consciously use all the desirable characteristics with which we have been provided and we can repress and refuse to allow the undesirable ones to manifest. “
On another note, but on the same path, this week we complete reading Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman in the World” Chapter Eight, The Scroll Marked I, 3x’s/day for 30 days. We are asked to bring to the next Scroll, something from the previous scroll, I have chosen the following:
“Today, I begin a new life. Thus a new and good habit is born, for when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform and if it is a pleasure to perform it is human nature to perform it often.” I must say, that could help with both house cleaning and mental house cleaning. Do you ever notice how things can get messy if your mind gets cluttered or visa versa? You just can’t do it all, blah, blah, blah!!! You know that road your mind goes down that I’m talking about.
Ok folks, it’s not magic; it’s being the Watchman at the Gate! I love it and yes, you are going to hear me talk about it many times because honestly, I know I have to be in tune with this each day, each hour, every minute! It’s called taking responsibility, what do you want your life to look like? We are creating it every day!!!
As Haanel says in “The Master Key – Part Five”: “The thing to do is to have a mental house-cleaning, and to have this house-cleaning every day, and keep the house clean. Mental moral and physical cleanliness are absolutely indispensable if we are to make progress of any kind.”
What did you do today to keep your mental house clean?
