A 30-Day (Personal Development) Challenge, Day 9: Reading A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s purpose #2

Hey there folks, what’s going on? Clark here. Welcome BACK to this 30-day personal development challenge/case study of mine. Before starting Day 9, you may have a look at my Day 8 activities and findings (if any). As you well know if you have been following my journey from the start, my main goal for this challenge is to raise my vibration (good feelings) to a much better place than it has ever been before. Today I just want to discuss a train of thoughts that I received while reading A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s purpose. But before that,

What to Do Today?

You know how sometimes we re-watch movies that we’ve seen before and found that we have forgotten most of what happened?

So that’s what I will do today. I’m going to go back and listen to Jean Houston’s Unlock Your Quantum Powers course materials again. They come in downloadable MP3s format and I won’t lie, this is a bit of a shameless promotion by me of the aforementioned course, but only because it’s so good. I’ve gone through it once and will again as part of my challenge just to refresh and see if I could gain some new epiphanies.

Meanwhile, I’ve also been meditating daily and reading A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s purpose. I have another musing after reading part of the book that I would like to put down below.

Suffering is Pleasure to the Ego

When I read that (not the exact words used in the book, but the meaning is that) I can feel instinctively that it’s true. We hang on to our resentment from past events even though it hurts us. The ego is the unconscious part of us and it grows larger when it identifies with something, even suffering.

Therefore, the ego will always try to get us to identify with something. What are we if not our past sufferings and experiences? We find it hard to just accept (let go of) what-is and feel good anyway even though we know, we know, that it leads to the manifesting of the life we want.

As human beings we are comfortable with what-is, and therefore we always remind ourselves of our current financial/health/relationship situation perhaps to anchor us on firm ground. Doing, or thinking/imagining, or feeling, something unusual feels off and uncomfortable. Perhaps the fear of losing what we have is stronger than the excitement of gaining what we want. When we try to visualize a better set of circumstances into our life, we are more afraid than we care to admit of mentally letting go of our current circumstances and living our dream.

Alright, Boys and Girls, Watch Out for the Next Part!

That’s it for today. Sorry that it’s a bit of a short one. Keep an eye on the horizon for the next part of this series, do subscribe to my emails, and if you have any questions or comments for me do not hesitate to leave them below. I will revert as soon as I am able to. Till the next time, thanks a lot!
