MKE Week 19 – Og Inspired Ruminations

Initially I felt a little sad when I read the opening sentence of Scroll V.

I will live this day as if it is my last.

I think it was my old blueprint resisting thinking about death. However, I persisted and soon found great wisdom in the text.

Yesterday is buried forever…

That inspired me to release the unpleasant things that have occurred and to learn from them. By forgetting and forgiving myself and others I will be able to live in the now, which is the only place I can be.

Should I concern myself over events which I may never witness.

As a nurse I was trained to be prepared for the worse case scenario. Some of that training has occasionally spilled into my personal life causing worry and imaginings of the worse. As I am in the process of observing my thoughts and changing them, I can see clearly that worry is a waste of the precious time we are given.

Is this another opportunity for me to become the (wo)man I know I can be?

Yes! I know that there is Unlimited Potential within me and I will use my time and energy to become the best woman I can be.

I am a (wo)man of love and today is my last chance to prove my love and my greatness.

Another reminder to live my life with love in my heart for myself and all humanity. After all, what I focus on grows and I choose to focus on love, spreading it wherever I go.

Og finishes the scroll with the statement:

And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.

So, what I initially thought of as a somewhat morbid opening statement for the chapter, in actuality contained several points of optimism. By doing my best every day, as if it is my last, I will live life from the higher vibration of love and in deep gratitude for the splendid gift that it is.

Meet Carmen Fuentes

I really love being of support to others especially women and children. I am so grateful that I was able to devote 30+ years in joyful service as a maternal/child nurse and Lactation Consultant.

I retired from that career two years ago, sold my condo, moved closer to my lovely daughter and family, and started my home based business. And so the next chapter of my life has begun. It’s going to be a doozy!

I have always been a spiritual seeker. On my self-development quest I have been exposed to the principles that govern our universe and to the wonders of the mind. Since starting MKE I am learning how to combine principle and the power of my subconscious mind to bring about real change in my life and so manifest my dreams. I feel AWESOME!
