This week has been amazing in the Master Keys; I know I mentioned that in previous blogs but Hanaal just keeps blowing me away every week and this week has been no different, additionally it’s beginning to start to come together everything that we have learned over these past 21 weeks.
I really had a tough time narrowing down the topic for this week blog until this morning when a follow MKMAAer (Rhonda Moss) tweeted the following link this morning
Movie Version with lyrics (Despicable Me 2)
I have heard this song previously on the radio and from the movie “Despicable Me 2” if you have kids. This song & video by Pharrell Williams really lifted my spirits this morning after a long week. By the way what’s not to like about this song has a great beat, lyrics and it definitely lifts spirits. BTW, during the research for this blog, I found that Pharrell actually created a “24hour happiness” music video to this song, (I’ll attach the link below if you are interested in viewing it)
Over the past weeks we have talked about having a positive mental attitude and to positively charge your Dharma with feelings. Hanaal also mentions “mental attitude” again in this week’s readings
21 – 12. The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that “like attracts like”, consequently the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.
21 -13. This mental attitude is our personality and is composed of the thoughts which we have been creating in our own mind; therefore, if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life.
21- 14. It is, however, no easy matter to change the mental attitude, but by persistent effort it may be accomplished; the mental attitude is patterned after the mental pictures which have been photographed on the brain; if you do not like the pictures, destroy the negatives and create new pictures; this is the art of visualization.
The last 2 passages are particularly important; if you don’t like the picture in our head change it, wow what a great concept! So, “if we wish a change in conditions all that is necessary is to change our thought; this will in turn change our mental attitude, which will in turn change our personality, which will in turn change the persons, things and conditions, or, the experiences with which we meet in life.” WOW!!!
So what’s does your picture look like? What’s your mental attitude going to be?
To help you I’ll leave you with the following lyrics from “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
“clap along … if you feel like happiness is the truth”
“clap along … if you what happiness means to you”
“clap along … if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”
Thanks Rhonda, for sharing this video and I have also add it to my DMP playlist as well.
So until next time, Peace be the Journey!!!
