Week 4 – The Hero’s Journey – Feeling the Bliss


“One day I will find the right words and they will be simple.” Jack Kerouac

I am nearing the end of week 4 and I am still working on my DMP, (Definite Major Purpose).  I know what I want, where I want to go, and how I want to get there…….I think.  What I don’t have a handle on is how to define it.  I mean, I thought I had a pretty nice clear idea, but now, with the changes happening within me because of this awesome Master Key Master Mind system, I am thinking of completely overhauling my purpose.  How does that happen?

It happens because I’ve grown, and have actually started asking myself questions.  Do I really want a beautiful home overlooking the water on Kiawah Island, South Carolina?  Yes, that would be nice, but I think I’d really like to have a gorgeous condo with a view of downtown Minneapolis first.  I still want to achieve this by writing a best seller or two, so there’s not much change there.  My career is pretty much set in stone.  World-wide acclaim for writing would be sort of nice.  Actually, that really gets my solar plexus spinning.

And, of course, I’ve had no trouble pinpointing exactly where I want to vacation with my family and when: Las Ventanas Spa in Cabo, Mexico, Castle-hunting in Scotland with my granddaughters, Tuscany, and more.

Defining what I want to sacrifice in order to reach my dreams is very difficult.  I mean, it’s not like I don’t believe in giving.  As the saying goes, I would give anything to reach my dreams.  So how do I zero in on “anything.”  Giving up 3 hours of TV a day is trivial.  I’ve promised to write, edit, and research for 3 hours a day, and invest 1 hour a day building my author’s platform on Twitter and Facebook, but that’s work I’d already be doing and I love doing, so it isn’t really a sacrifice.  To say how much money I’ll give to the poor would be great if I knew how much money I’ll have to give.  I know I want to work with children.  I want them to know about that spark of power within them. But how do I get specific?

I know the right answer will come during one of my sits, when my “I” speaks to me.  Eckhardt Tolle said, “I am not the voice in my head.  I am the awareness of the voice disguised as a person.”  Yes, I’ll sit and the perfect answer will come.  Stillness is the language God speaks.

God and I merge in the Solar Plexus.  Where did I read that this week?  Haanel, probably.  I am so loving this journey.  Like ET’s heart which pulsates in bright red light when he’s filled with love and joy, I have come to feel the bliss within me too.
