Week #17-Hero’s Journey-MKMMA

As the Hero’s Journey continues, I am finding my life changing in so many ways. I am finding so much gratitude for so many things, simple things in my life. As I continue to keep acknowledging daily what I am grateful for, my life is changing before my eyes. By continuing to go within, I am finding a peace and happiness that is so real and nurturing it takes my breath away.

A quote by Tara Brach:
“True refuge is that which allows us to be at home, at peace, to discover true happiness. The only thing that can give us true refuge is the awareness and love that is intrinsic to who we are. Ultimately, its our own true nature.”

Aw quote by Dada Vaswani:
“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give -pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind you can never be happy.”

As I find this inner peace and continue to go deeper into this journey within, I am able to give to myself and others. The MKMMA course is an incredible structure that provides a way to travel this Hero’s Journey of self discovery by taking the journey within. We are venturing into a new world of love, kindness, gratitude, humility, awareness and how to live powerfully in this world.

One thing I am learning and I’d like to share, is that kindness and giving to others makes me happy and brings me great joy. Giving does not have to cost money, you can give of yourself in so many ways. We can give people the gifts of:
love
forgiveness
your humility
acknowledgment
being present and smile at them
listening to them
your self-control
your gratitude
patience
kindness
care
enthusiasm
encouragement
inspiration

There are so many ways to give, I could go on and on. Not only does it bring others happiness or joy, but the giver gets so much in return. “You can’t get love unless you give it.”

I have found the key to success with this course is to do the work, live the practices, incorporate them into my life and know the transformation will occur if I am participating fully. The MKMMA course cannot do it for me, it can only provide the structure, knowledge and guidance. It takes me participating and doing the work. Success is the outcome if I am disciplined to do the work and NEVER GIVE UP!

I am truly grateful I said yes to the invitation to do the course and that I have not listened to my internal conversations/old blue print, that has screamed in my head to quit along the way. I am truly blessed to be on this journey with such incredible leaders and people who are bold enough to take this journey within on.

Everyone participating —Thank you —without each of you this would not be happening.
Many Blessings and sending each of you love!
