This week we had a last minute notice from the kids, that they would all be at the house for 3 days, arriving the next day. I looked at Sandy and said you recall we have a Dr. Appointment in the morning and you have been waiting for that for 2 months now. She was obviously frustrated that we were only getting a matter of hours notice before they all showed up. I looked at her and said, relax it will all be over with before you know it. Just enjoy every moment you have with them.
So what does all this have to do with the Master Keys. Here you go. I was also a little taken back from the sudden notice and already had the next 3 days well filled up with things I was planning on doing.
So we are sitting around the kitchen table playing games as we always do when the kids are here. I was a not present, my mind was thinking about all the things I should be doing, according to what I already had in mind that I would be doing. Many of those things were projects I was working on for customers and was already behind in timing for there completion. So, there I was sitting with Family and Kids playing games and not there in my mind. All of sudden it comes to my conscious mind; how silly I was being. It was my choice as to how I wanted to respond to what was taking place. I was reacting from the old cement still embedded. I was not being a self-directed thinker that I am. I was reacting from the old blueprint. So right there, in my thoughts, I gave thanks from the awareness, that I was not enjoying the time with the kids and was thinking about all the things I thought I should be doing. Again, I was thankful for being the observer and then consciously making the decision to think how I wanted to think and to be present with the Family and truly enjoy the game and time I had with them. My whole countenance made an almost instant change, my attitude changed, and my feelings changed. The rest of the time, I was conscious, and aware of my thoughts and each time the old nonsense tried to creep in, I shook it off and made the choice to enjoy every moment with them.
Kind of goes hand in hand with what we are studying and reading. We really are the watchman at the gate of our subconscious. We really can choose what we want. We really can be self-directed thinkers, creating the life that we desire, and are designed to be, do and have.
It was a great 3 days with the Family.
I always keep my promises.
Good job Don! This is going to be a great experience as we all continue to do better!
Nice. Be Here Now reminders are great!
