G'day everyone! Today I began to listen to Monte's 'The Master Program'. It was so empowering! I quite like his approach to debunk the subconsciously learned and adopted thoughts and behavioral patterns. I feel that I stepped one notch above from where I was yesterday. It is as if I changed gears all of a sudden...woohoo!! And because of this, the language used until yesterday has changed too.Thank you Monte and thanks to you all for the wonderful postings and encouragement! Listening to Monte's explanation about the 'mind strategy' and how it wants to keep us there, imprisoned, it occurred to me that there maybe a different angle to it. How about if 'the signal' (aka pain) is nothing short of a physiological bell calling us to 'personal development'. Because we fail to absorb and process the environmental learnings that life provide us, then a system of warning needs to be created to prompt us to change. There is no doubt that some enlightened soul has already worked this one out and published it. But this positive view of 'the signal' struck me this afternoon after my meditation. No doubt the result of all the information that I have listened to and read. As Monte said, we must move out and away of closed and repressed thoughts and behavioral patterns that lead to physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual oppression. So it is official... I am stopping the usage of the terms 'pain, ache or soreness'. I feel that calling it 'a signal', I turn a negative into a positive. I am not celebrating discomforting symptoms but I decided to be thankful and honor the call of my mind and body to shift life paradigms. And, I had a relatively good day with small signals that I was able to question and experienced them fading away. A toast for you all to health and happiness!
