I’m pleasantly surprised with how every week so far, there’s always been at least one thing about this course that sparked an “aha moment” or that just moves me to want to write about it. This week is no different.
I absolutely LOVE Scroll 2. It’s core principle is “I will greet this day with love in my heart,” and to be quite honest, it’s exactly the kind of message I would have rolled my eyes at in the not very distant past. I think that may have something to do with why I’m finding it so remarkable! 🙂
It’s just written so beautifully and integrates so well with everything else we’re doing at the moment. For example, No Opinions…”How will I speak? How will I act? How will I react to the actions of others?” To respond with love at all times is to forgo our opinions where it is most important to do so, where it impacts on our interactions with others. It is one thing to tell us what *not* to do, but this scroll tells us what *to* do instead, and somehow I find that infinitely more powerful.
And I think my favourite line is:
“And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. ”
It fits right into the concept of one’s Mental Home (which I was so enamoured with last week,) but it takes it one step further in personalizing it even more. It subtly asks the question, Do you love yourself enough to keep your mental, physical, and spiritual “home” clean? Then throw in the “Guy/Gal in the Glass” and the trio make a phenomenally powerful combination.
Gotta say, with that in the back of mind, every time I’ve looked at a piece of Halloween candy lying about the house I say to myself “I love myself too much to put that crap into my body!” and I have had no trouble leaving it on the table. Amazing!! Probably the most brilliant motivational tool I’ve yet come across!
