I studied with a mentor of super-consciousness for 5-years. One of my “treats” was to understand the “Ancient Ways” of Hawaiians’. When I opened the obscure book of about 1000 pages, I pondered what possible treat this tomb would contain.
However, the mentor always knows and among the many lessons learned from my treat, here is my favorite – “Hello lesson, thank you teacher.” In old Hawaii, as in many of our ancient cultures, the villagers raised the child.
The children were taught to look upon all learning opportunities with anticipation and gratefulness. What do you think? Is every day we learn something new a good day? Like me, do you thirst for and welcome knowledge? Are you curious about how things work?
Are you willing to accept my personal journal challenge for five days?
Personal Journal Assignment: Hello Lesson, Thank you Teacher
Be mindful: Untapped realms of knowledge are waiting for our receptiveness.
Universal Intelligence is your Divine Heritage. Open your subconscious and fly free in unbounded skies.
On five clean personal journal pages, write “Hello Lesson, Thank you Teacher” at the top of each page.
Day 1: Select a book from your shelf. Open it at random. Read until you discover five unfamiliar words. Jot each of them on the page.
Ponder on each word and write what you intuit it means. Now, look in the dictionary. This is an exercise in concentration. You will surprise yourself. The more you do this, the oftener you will be right on the money.
Day 2: Think about a person you know that believes he knows everything. People who refuse to learn have stepped out of their creativity.
Imagine a conversation with him where he really listens. What would you tell him? Write a synopsis of the conversation in your personal journal and note any insights you received.
Day 3: This is a free day. Did any learning opportunities present themselves today?
Day 4: Wander, Watch and Write – Re-discover something in the natural world. Nature is one of our greatest teachers. Often, we are so busy with activities, we don’t take time to wander and watch.
Write in your personal journal about a familiar sight, sound or place that feels like you are experiencing for the first time. Watch weeds. Observe the weather. Hear the birds. What beautiful thing did you watch? As you wandered, what did you learn today?
Day 5: Draft your dream. In your personal journal, write a first draft of a dream that you’ve let wither. Know this: your dream did not die. It simply needs your attention to flourish.
How could you expand your boundaries, thought or action to nourish your dream? Do you need to take a class? Find a mentor? Enlist helping people? Start setting aside money? Does it need a blueprint? Could you turn it over to your subconscious mind and ask for clear direction? Could you check out library books about people who have accomplished a similar dream? How about online groups? What is holding you back?
Here is a bonus: In Old Hawaii, Kahuna’s performed successful brain surgery without anesthetic!
My personal journal friends, this is power.
