Week 12 Dig a little Deeper
A Short English Lesson
Over the last three months I have found myself having to look up loads of words just so I could understand what I was reading. Apart from realising how poor my understanding of the English language is, I have have actually really enjoyed this exploration and want to share one small sentence from this weeks reading, it’s definition as I understand it and what it means to me.
Thought – thinking; mind; consciousness; reasoning; deliberation; that which one thinks; notion; idea; fancy; consideration; opinion; meditation; design; care; considerateness; purpose; resolution; intention;
Impregnate – to saturate, soak, infuse, fill completely

become – to grow or come to be

At the beginning of the Master Keys we were asked to pick two out of seven possible pivotal needs that we felt were most important to us, and write a Definite Major Purpose (DMP) for our lives around them. I decided to go with Liberty as one. Why? Because having spent all my life watching the pennies I didn’t want to do this anymore. It seemed a logical choice under the circumstances. So I wrote out my DMP and felt satisfied I had met the requirements both for myself and the course. But…….. “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.” (attr. Abraham Lincoln) Don’t get me wrong, I was not trying to fool anyone any of the time, but my heart began to feel unsettled. Something didn’t feel right! I was finding I couldn’t read my DMP with enthusiasm as we have been urged. In fact I even forgot to read it on a few occasions despite having been doing it for weeks now. Oh no…….what’s wrong?………am I just not cut out for this journey?
So I got out my mental shovel and started digging.
I thunk and I thunk…..what makes me feel happy, alive, satisfied with life?
And then it came to me….. having financial liberty to live as I choose would be wonderful, but, it is not a driving force in my life and never has been. How did I know this? Because I get the same satisfaction from teaching whether I receive 1p or a £1000, it makes no difference in my heart. And there is was, my Personal Pivotal Need is Helping Others! I love helping someone do something that they could not do before. And a ‘Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.’ As I build my life around the things I love, I will be unconquerable, and I trust the financial aspect of life will be taken care of because the Universe knows what I really want.
