Examining the innumerable contrasts in my world, I find it is so liberating to see these expressions as extremes and contrasts of the whole. I confess I continue to struggle to make sense of the current state of affairs in my country. But, seeing that in truth every polarity is merely an end and opposite end of the same entity, I can place my intention on that which I wish to manifest in my world. I initially found this polarity very disheartening, and found that my fear about the future of humanity would consume me. Seeing that the other side of fear is faith is most heartening. Moving into Chapter 20 I then got to revisit my obligation to maintain my connection to the divine mind; to acknowledging that the universal can only act through the individual. Part 20 number 8 states “When you begin to perceive that the essence of the universal is within yourself– is you– you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power; it is the fuel which fires the imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration which gives vitality to thought; which enables you to connect with all the invisible forces of the universe. It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully.” If I am a visualizing entity and my imagination is my workshop, it is here that my ideal can be visualized. I admit it is difficult to process the onslaught and implications of the executive orders coming out of the White House these last 5 weeks. But, I am choosing to see everything that had been creating panic inside of me, as an opportunity for change. Extraordinary results require extraordinary means. Inspiration is the art of self realization; the art of becoming a channel for the flow of infinite wisdom; the art of visualizing perfection and having faith in the omnipresence of Omnipotence.
The etymology of the word author is Old French meaning “father, creator, one who brings about, one who makes or creates”. That is a much broader definition than the modern one. Why am I…

The principle of the law of attraction is the sole means by which the individual is differentiated from the universal…”She exists, therefore, only in her relation to the whole, in his relation to other men, in her relation to society. This relation constitutes his environment and in no other way. It is evident, therefore, that the individual is simply the differentiation of the one Universal Mind “which lighteth every man that cometh into the world,” and her so-called individuality or personality consists of nothing but the manner in which she relates with the whole.”
Part 18 has been extremely challenging for me. I continue to try to make sense of my world after the inauguration of our last president. I am working hard to stay connected to the universal mind and to stay connected to my divinity, but I find every day a challenge. I am trying to sow seeds which will produce fruits in the future. Fruits which represent the universal goodness of us all; that have everyone’s highest good in mind. Every day I work diligently to keep my attention on the positive, on that which I want to manifest, on universal goodness. It is so easy to be distracted by the ever-changing environment of our society, that I find I lose my way often. I strive to live each day as if it is my last, but worry and fear and uncertainty prove to be huge obstacles. The quote which I moved forward into chapter 12 from Chapter 11 is “I’ve been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements and heartaches are in truth great opportunities in disguise.” I do believe the obstacles in my way currently present a huge opportunity for me. I continue to do the meditative work to access and use the law of attraction to manifest my dreams and goals. Sadly, I believe these same obstacles present a huge barrier for so many in this society and the world. Many people I know are scared and disillusioned. Many people I know live with an uncertainty that makes life extremely challenging. And many people I do not know personally are living a life of hardship and despair which is unacceptable.
Last week was very challenging. I found it difficult to sit peacefully. And I found it difficult to focus on positive outcomes or images. I know I was carrying around a lot of unresolved anxiety, as our new president was sworn into office. I gave myself permission to really grieve on Friday night as my ideals and my voice and my values are not being represented and fear about the future for many different people clouded my heart and head. On Saturday I participated in my local Women’s March, and I was able to tap into that energy that is much bigger than we each are as individual humans. It was exactly what I needed to move through my fear and anger. I am now refocusing on ideals and working diligently to focus and concentrate my mind on what I want and not to worry about what fear-based distractions set in. If I wish to eliminate fear I concentrate on courage. If I wish to eliminate lack I concentrate on abundance. If I wish to eliminate disease I concentrate on health. If I wish to eliminate hate I concentrate on love. If I wish to eliminate exclusion I concentrate on inclusion. If I wish to eliminate intolerance I focus on tolerance. The current state of political affairs in the country really motivates me to become better at visualizing my ideals and concentrating on the outcome with all of my intention and emotion.
If the Septimal law governs all of our activities by the law of periodicity, then this coming year should be filled with opportunity. Here it is 2017, and I just turned 57. I’m so excited at the thought of experiencing a period of reconstruction, adjustment and harmony. I have already noticed increased harmony in my world, and I continue to try and keep my channel open to the divine mind in order to continue to nurture this harmony. I found this week’s reading really helpful in terms of looking at gaining or earning or creating wealth as really creating an ideal. Using spiritual power to create an ideal life and world through idealization and visualization. It is reassuring to know that having good intentions and striving to be my very best self brings with it the necessary tools to help me along the way to this ideal. Sometimes when I find things overwhelming or get impatient with my personal growth process and the speed of change, I remind myself that having faith and exercising believe and commitment will bring me the necessary tools and events and people that I need to become this better person. I am loving this journey with MKMMA and find my new habits help me start each day off with love in my heart and a profound connection to my purpose here on this earth.
