This week I completed the Self- Assessment Test for week 10. The questions seemed to have been created to tap into how I am allowing my mind and attitude to change my direction. I scored 37 points. The range of points 31-49, reveals that I seem to be doing what’s necessary to achieve great success- at least for some of the times.

Thinking about my score, I had to admit that even though I am moving in the right direction, I still need to be more consistent in my positive thoughts and actions etc.

I thought about the many times I had to stop myself in the tracks from allowing the “dry bones” of my dying limiting beliefs to get life again. There were victorious moments though when I consciously realized I was going down the “dry bones” path, and stopped myself. Even my husband was able to say, ” you stopped yourself!” He noticed the change, and that made me feel and confirm that I was indeed changing!

Keeping everything in perspective with who I am, and have been in my life, as I continue on this journey to get beyond my “evolving” self, I must keep alive my Faith. I must remember at all times that whatever I do in life, or whoever I become, and whatever I achieve in my life is not because I do it on my own, or by myself, but because of my Creator. The Master Key, Part 10:14, clearly describes my position:

” In taking advantage of the wonderful possibilities opened up to us through the operation of this law, we must remember that we ourselves contribute nothing to its efficacy as the the Great Teacher said: ” It is not I that doeth the works, but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the work.” We must take exactly the same position; we can do nothing to assist in the manifestation, we simply comply with the law, and the All-originating Mind will bring about the result.

My faith can be as small as a mustard seed, but my faith attached to the Father that dwelleth in me, who tells me to “.. think on these things..” is the One who changes my heart, my mind, and my desires, and gives me the strength to daily reject the negative thoughts/feelings.

All I have to do is my part, and leave the rest up to Him. The amazing thing too is that even the part that is mine, He is the One giving me the ability to do it. Isn’t that AWESOME?

The more I give, the more I get.

I always keep my Promises!
