Week 28 – The Hero’s Journey – Path of Least Resistance


The Master Key

          The Master Key

I have been quite busy the past weeks trying to salvage what I could of my four-hundred page manuscript, after my computer was attacked by a number of nasty malware.  The Geek Squad said the computer needed a complete system recovery, which I felt fine doing because I thought all of my files were safe on a cloud.  Wrong!  After cleaning my computer, I found that the cloud had not saved major parts of the manuscript.  Luckily I had just printed out the manuscript a week before the malware attack.  So now I am typing the entire four-hundred pages into a new document.  I don’t type very fast – probably around 30 words a minute – so this is taking FOREVER.

Got to Get the Book Done

But guess what?  I am revising as I type, and I have not had one negative thought beyond, “Oh what a bummer.  Well, let’s get on with the task of making it right.”  Acceptance is the key here.  I have been practicing acceptance of things we cannot change for many years, and it really came in handy.

I have taken the path of least resistance:  Acceptance, Responsibility, and Defenslessness.  I am taking full responsibility for the malware.  I trusted someone who said they were from Microsoft, who actually was a malware hacker.  I won’t bore you with the whole story, but please be careful who you do business with.

I love the Master Key System.  Thank you Mark and Davene for teaching me the Path of Least Resistance.
