Hey “Guru seeker” tribe members. I’ve got a great ordinary, everyday unassuming guru story for you.
Karen is about five (my guess). She was picking on her brother at the beach. I was nearby and was spying (so to speak). Her mom asked her why she was being so mean to her brother. I know the girl’s name was Karen because that’s what her mom called her when asking her the “Why” of her actions.
Karen looked right at her mom and said, “Mom, I can’t stop myself. My mind works on its own. I don’t know how to stop doing what it tells me to do.” You’d better read Karen’s answer again, it’s a powerhouse: “Mom, I can’t stop myself. My mind works on its own. I don’t know how to stop doing what it tells me to do.”
Is that possible? Could it be that Karen has spoken an incredible truth about each of us?
Whatever you assume yourself to be will establish itself in your mind, and then your mind will compel you to act accordingly? Could that be possible about you? If you assume yourself to be successful, and your mind establishes that as a fact (in its belief system), then will your mind, in fact compel you to act in ways that bring success to you?
What happens if you assume yourself to be mediocre at best? What will your mind compel you to pursue other than mediocrity? Nothing!
Thank you from all of us, Karen. I guess you (Karen), assume yourself to be a pest to your brother at this time, and your mind compels you to pester your brother. I cannot wait for you to assume yourself to be a successful writer or doctor or teacher. All you have to do is relax and know your mind will compel you to do the right thing to fulfill on that assumption.
- What does this ordinary guru tip have to do with you folks?
- What is your mind compelling you to do?
- Who do you have to assume yourself to be for your mind to compel you act successfully?
Blessings and love to all of you, Rob
PS – Deception deceives the deceiver – be honest about looking at who you assume yourself to be.
