OK, it’s time to deal with this enthusiasm and feeling thing and get it out of the way. As a white personality, I harbor little of either one. I would even go so far as to dismiss such rubbish as childish and a waste of time. Feelings, Bah Humbug! Save it for Days of Our Lives.
That having been said I look at examples of when things have been accomplished through powers of the mind, and in nearly all cases some type of emotion is attached to the process.
The shaman who conjures the rain to come, a mother praying for her sick child to be well, a student cramming for a test so he/she can graduate, a child hoping for a certain toy for Christmas. All these things carry some form of emotion attached to them.
I look at the purpose of the MKE, which is to accomplish our desires effortlessly through the powers of the mind. What a wonderful, incredible thing! WOW! I think about all the things I would be willing to sacrifice in order to be able to do that. Yet I am being told I don’t have to jump through hoops of fire; just put some feelings into my thought. Oh, please don’t make it that simple.
So, I look at all the whining and sniveling I have been doing about showing a little emotion (whimper). I have decided the thing to do is pretend I am in a play, and simply act out the emotions even if I don’t really feel that way. It has been said that if you want to be a certain way, just act out what you want to be, even if you don’t believe it at the moment.

I have this vision of waiting in line at a Starbucks and suddenly deciding to act like a Dallas cowboys cheerleader and breaking into a rousing rendition of “Do It Now”. Minus the short skirt and pom-poms. LOL.
Anyway, I am going to take Mark’s advice and put away my childish opinions and just go for it. After all, I’m in it now. Might as well play the game.
“Feelings, Bah Humbug! Save it for Days of Our Lives.” Love it, Vance, love it! Way to go on getting your second blog post in on time! 🙂
Congratulations, Vance, on seeing all the habits that accomplish your desires effortlessly. If you didn’t have it in you, you couldn’t see it. Share those feelings courageously!
Absolutely Vance. You are in it, play the game. See what it brings to you. We might still make a blue or a yellow out of you yet. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed reading your blog.
Vance, I picture you standing in line at Starbucks and yelling do it now. I also pictured the looks, lol too funny, thanks for the smile.
It is that simple Vance! Your inner cheerleader is in a rousing rendition of Do It Now!
Love your quote by W. Shakespeare and letting go of the “childish opinions.” I like your willingness to ‘play the game!’
“Let’s play Ball!”
Yes, that’s it, Vance! Our mind is so powerful, it does manifest what you visualize and imagine so why not act out what you want with this great emotion. Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!
