MKMMA Week 1: “Preparing for Take off!”
First day of MKMMA, Master Keys Master Mind Alliance and I am already looking in the mirror and seeing how I have let the external world dictate my internal thoughts and actions … Now is my time to re-discover or re-acquaint the golden Buddha in me! It is time to really understand the power of our words and no longer be guided by others in my life or my journey.
This brings me to my first blog in MKMMA.
Before starting MKMMA, I saw online the text Meryl Streep’s lives by the famous author Jose Micard Teixeria. I got caught up in it … and even agreed, but then with the beginning of MKMMA, I put the brakes on and said to myself: “Whose words, but most importantly, from what frame of reference are they coming from? … the negative”.
“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”
If this is true- that Meryl Streep or anyone lives by these words … I would ask them to stop and re-write this in the positive … like Mark J. says, words have power.
My re-write: I continue to discover and grow into the true self inside of me. I have reached a point in my life where I have the time to spend on what pleases, makes me healthy and enriches me. I am around people who are free of judgment, who look for the best in others and in me as I in them. I connect with people who are genuine, respectful, truthful, and honest. I give freely without the expectation of return. I love, smile, celebrate, help and care for others and myself. I am at peace.
I have patience for all, especially myself.
