Week 8 MKMMA

Greetings!….Well, Im late again, but I just got me a shiny new hosted blog. I feel like I just went to Brooks Brothers and bought a new suit! I’m very excited about it. Now I have to learn how to add stuff like pictures, photos. I have much homework in front of me. I did add the header picture. It’s one that I took at one of my favorite camping spots in the Sierras….Brings to mind instant wonderful memories. Looking at the scene is a form of practicing the law of substitution. Any negative vaporizes when I ponder the beautiful image….And when I want, I now have access to 1600 more pictures that I took in the same area! Here’s one now!cropped-IMG_0097.jpg

 

 

and below is another!— I feel like a kid with a new bike! This blog is going to be my new home. I know a lot of wonderful and amazing things are going to born on this palette over the ensuing months. One of my PPN’s is recognition for creative expression…IMG_0009(3)

what a venue!

—so, back to this week…the 7 day mental diet…my mind is in a constant state of “low level overwhelm”….coming face to face with my own constant stream of conscious negativity, is very humbling and more than a bit depressing….Yesterday, I did come to an epiphany about it all…Of course the answer was given several weeks ago and has been talked about by others in MKMMA, but for me, it finally stood up and waved at me saying, “He!y, Dennis I’m over here, use me!” that of course would be the law of substitution….2 thoughts can’t occupy the same space, so trade the junk for the divine! What a concept!—Now, driving down the highway, which I do everyday all day, when a less than elegant thought pops up, I start yelling ….What else….”I can be what I will to be!” or, “I’m in the FLOW!!!!—Pattern interrupt….

The battle ship exercise…the exercise is very intriguing, but I substituted an example from an excerpt from the Buddhist Monk Thich Nat Hanh. He asks the person about to take a bite of food, “where did this food come from? Is it locally grown, is it organic (no GMO’s)—who grew it? how much love and work went into the tending of the plants? How about the magic life giving elements of the sun and water that to brings life to the plant. How about the divine love that created the plant that was put on Mother earth just to nurture us….With every bite we consume the divine…Isn’t it wonderfully exquisite?—It’s easy to see, we TRULY are all one…Hello my brothers and sisters of the divine…Your love touches me, and my love touches you…

    Great idea to use pictures and affirmations to substitute when negative thoughts try to creep in. Beautiful pictures by the way!
    I think I may try to use the substitution of those affirmations as well . Thanks for sharing the idea.

    Hi Dennis, loved reading your posts, thank you. I will never eat my food the same way ever again, the appreciation, and going back into discovering how something came about just opens my mind up to love and gratitude. xxoo

    Hey, great blog going – hope you come back and continue! It’s not to late to get back into this. Beautiful pictures. And I really liked what you said about the Buddhist monk…reminds me of some interviews I’m reading that Joseph Campbell did: life eats life!
