Week 9… Wow, what a amazing journey it has been so far. There were so many new and challenging things when this journey first began. Questioning my own ability to complete each new thing…but very determined to do it no matter what! What was once overwhelming is now happening effortlessly and the seeds that were sown nine weeks ago have begun to sprout and grow.
This week, as I am visualizing the growth of a seed and the maturing process. I couldn’t help but think my own process from week one to now. The fruit has begun to show forth in so many areas. The roots are still digging deeper so the plant can grow stronger and able to withstand the elements of life. As I was looking at the germination process of the seed, it parallels so much this MKMMA class. It all began with a seed, but exactly happens as that seed germinates? As the seed coat breaks away ( the cement on the golden buddah) the plant starts to grow. The first root called the radical burst forth from the seed coat and reaches down in search of nutrients. As the root grows the plants first chute or Plumule reaches upward in search of light,(the MKMMA class) carrying with it the plants first leaves known as the Cotyledons. While the roots grow deeper into the ground the chute continues to sprout and as it absorbed more light(The Alliance ) the plant continues to grow and produce more leaves.
The growth process still continues and we are digging deep with the roots by applying the process of no opinions, the mental diet ,and our exercises. Mark J has said several times to “Dig deep” the deeper we go, the stronger we will become and the better we will be able to stand when the elements of life come at us. We are producing leaves of love, character, keeping our promises, doing service, building a plan of action, and giving. May we continue to do all we can, dig just a little deeper and be the light for each other as we continue on the process of growth, Being Thankful for everything we are doing and how our lives and thinking is changing!
Upward and Onward!
