Well, Thanksgiving Day certainly gave me a challenge re the ‘no opinions’ charge. I spent Thanksgiving with my beautiful, talented….and very opinionated…daughters. Just the three of us. How easy it is to slip into a heated vehement discourse on the ills of the world! (We don’t argue as we are all of like mind). What would I have done if there was someone in on the conversation who was not like-minded? Could I have held back throwing my opinion around, or been ok letting my daughters handle that? Food for thought.
I am continuing keeping the television off during the day, and most evenings; however, I have allowed myself to watch a couple of programs that I enjoy on the evenings when I am at home and my work is done. What I have learned is that being alone during the day, the television’s purpose was primarily to serve as company. I have listened to more music the past two weeks; however to satisfy the craving for a human voice, I have had our MKMMA videos playing in the background as I do my chores. I am really grateful for the awareness of my habits…and needs…through this time of no television. Going forward, I am confident I will become more in tune with the quietness of the house and release the need for any ‘noisy’ distractions, and relish the sound of silence.
I love the affirmation in Haanel this week. Here is a favorite of mine.
I live the life of Spirit. The Cosmic Mind supports me in every way. I express intelligence with clarity and balanced emotions. The theme of my life is always progress- the forward movement of spiritual ideas through me. I do not focus on the world of negative opinion and belief. Restriction does not rule my life.
In this moment of spiritual recognition, the Creative Law of Mind responds to me fully. My world is transformed, my vision expanded, and my experience harmonized. I live in an atmosphere of creativity and peace. My progress and fulfillment are assured.
