Week C3 Who’s steering your ship?
Nurture your Self
Like many people, I love expanding my understanding of things that interest me. Over the last couple of years I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and learning from the greats like Charles Haanel and Napoleon Hill through Mark J’s Think and Grow Rich and Masterkey Mastermind Alliance Courses. These experiences have helped me to pursue my own Dharma. For those who maybe unfamiliar with the word Dharma, in simple terms it means your life’s purpose. Discovering your unique gifts and how you can share them with the world to help others.
That may sound a little like blowing your own trumpet, but it really is nothing of the sort. No matter who you are or where you live, we all want the same basic things in life….to feel happiness, love and fulfilled as a person. How can you feel truly fulfilled unless you are doing what you enjoy the most? The thing or things that bring you deep personal joy and satisfaction, and which pursuing feel natural, fun and easy. When you are in the flow your heart knows and your face can’t help smiling. 🙂 🙂 🙂
So for the last couple of years I have read, read and read some more, listened to countless numbers of interviews and recordings, made copious notes and discussed plans and ideas with my Mastermind partner Konstantina, as well as a few other selected people. I believe these things have been the sun, rain and fertiliser for the seeds in my mind. During one of the weeks in my Masterkey Experience (MKMMA) in 2013 we were asked to imagine planting our favourite flower as part of an exercise. I remember visiting my local supermarket that week and noticed they were selling off some small potted rose plants really cheaply because they were weak and losing their vitality. As my favourite flower was a rose and I loved the colour of the couple of little flower heads it did have, I felt compelled to save this little plant. I put the pot on my kitchen window sill and have nurtured it daily. Watering it, pruning the dried up leaves and cutting off the dead rose heads when necessary so its energy was not wasted. Today that rather puny looking little shoot is flourishing into a strong, healthy plant that clearly has many years of beauty ahead. It has a solid thick stem which now supports many strong branches, new leaf buds are unfurling and as the weather begins to warm I know it will blossom again and display it’s beauty as never before.
I realised sometime later that this little rose bush has been a precious symbolic metaphor for my life during the last few years. I took what appeared to be a weak and dying soul and nurtured my Self, my ideas, skills, gifts and experience and carefully brought myself back to life. Pruning the dead parts, watering my thirst for knowledge and basked in the warmth of my own sun centre, my Solar Plexus, and nurtured my Self-belief back to full health. Today life is looking very different than it did a few years ago. Sometimes is can be difficult to see why things happen the way they do, but I have come to understand everything that happens to us is created by us through consistent Laws of the Universe, and I needed to take 100% responsibility for everything in my life.
A ship with no Captain may not sink, but it is extremely unlikely to reach any desirable destination. You can take control of the wheel of you own life as readily as you can choose whether to put your finger in the plug socket or not, or water the seeds of the gifts you were born with. Experience, education or witnessing the lives others has taught you that sticking your finger in a plug socket things will not bode well for you. It does not matter who you are, the Law of Electricity is no respecter of age, gender, status, religion, wealth, or position. The Law of Attraction, the fundamental basis of our entire Universe is exactly the same. Nurture the beauty within you and watch what happens. You are not here by chance. You were born for a purpose.
