“Yet, within my allotted time I must practice the art of patience for nature acts never in haste” -Og Mandino
Let’s say it right up front… I’m a bit of a nerd. There… I said it. I’ve always been into books. I’ve always loved learning. I actually used to get my mom to read me bedtime stories out of paleontology textbooks because I was interested in dinosaurs. At age 8, I even thought it would be a good idea to read through our Junior Britannica encyclopedia set starting with “A”. Admittedly, though, I set the project aside once I got to “boomerang” because as interesting as the reading was… whittling boomerangs was even better.
Learning has always been a fascination of mine so I set about learning how to learn better. I devoured books on speed reading, accelerated learning techniques, memory techniques and everything I could get my hands on. I’ve even applied some strategies to the fascinating material we’ve been covering in this Master Key course.
I LOVE the material. I’ve also been seeing excellent growth. I’m already clearer on my vision for the future, increasing my focus and improving my ability to maintain a positive mindset. Good things happen by following the directions given in the course to the letter but I’ll tell you what the hardest part has been…
Holding back. To have all 10 “scroll” chapters of Og Mandino’s book in my hand and read only the first one, three times daily, day after day… To not add more tasks to my list of things to accomplish… To not know the meaning of the “Red Circle” which we will discuss in our next lesson… To not go ahead and read the entire Master Keys book but instead focus only on this weeks lesson… This has been challenging.
But still, I have kept on track. I have not rushed ahead. I have not cut corners. I know that there is a reason for everything that is done in this course and I trust the system. So the question became, “What is the reason?”
Then it came to me… It’s not just about learning the information… It’s about allowing the installation. If I rush ahead and finish the books or charge ahead with the exercises I will be exposed to the information but will my mindset change? Will my subconscious mind change? Will my life change? I think we all know that the answer to these questions is no. As Mandino states, “nature acts never in haste”. Mandino also writes:
“As I repeat the words daily they will soon become a part of my active mind, but more important, they will also seep into my other mind, that mysterious source which never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me act in ways I do not comprehend.”
So I will learn the information but I will also allow time for the installation. And what is the result? Changes in my subconscious mind… A reprogramming of my “auto-pilot” so to speak. And as this world within changes, so do my actions and my outcomes. This is the third ‘I’; effortless implementation. Worth the wait? Most definitely!
