This morning, as I awakened and before I was fully conscious, the sun began to rise. It dawned on me, both literally and figuratively, as a warm glow in my heart. I have a new kind of love in my heart.
I am starting to understand the reason for my taking the Master Key Experience (MKE) course, from a new perspective. The course is mentally challenging, causing mental effort to know myself, to grow as a person, to become more true to my calling in life. It is becoming more clear to me that I have a continuing responsibility to use the gifts God has given me, to “put my talents on the exchange table” for the good of others.
I have had a good life; how easy it would be to remain in my “comfort zone”! I am blessed in so many ways, and I feel grateful to the point of overflowing. The abundance I experience is awesome: it includes my faith, my family, my country, and all my temporal needs plus much more.
It has never been all about ME, not really. Ulysses, the old, tired warrior who was returning home at last after the Trojan wars, sighed: “How dull it is to pause, to make an end, to rust unburnished, not to shine in use!” It occurred to me, soon to be 73, that at this time in my life, I can now more fully focus on others, to help a few people find their gifts, their passion, and to help them focus on their “true north”, and shake off any rust, doubts, fears, or other false obstacles which may be holding them back. Then I will teach them how to do the same thing. We will work as a team. Who knows how extensive that ripple effect could be? I am now experiencing the type of mentoring and coaching that can be duplicated. I am studying the masters who have blazed the way, and have written so eloquently with inspiration and clarity and with instructions.
I know that I am covering previously “plowed ground,” yet is is helpful for me to record my thoughts and experiences. Perhaps these words might find fertile soil somewhere? My job simply is to sow the seeds!
