Week 6 – Love in my heart

downloadWe started anew scroll in “The Greatest Salesman in the World” this week and I found one paragraph that truly resonated with me.

“And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh, rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.”

One of my personal pivotal needs is true health and I realized that this is not just for my body, but true health for my body, my mind, and my soul.  It is my desire to healthy in all aspects of my life.  At first, I was just focused on my body… being ripped with a beach body and reading this statement opened my mind to al new possibilities for true health.

I m now exercising in many ways.  Starting Core de Force from Beach Body for my physicaldownload-1 strength.  Love martial arts workouts. Part of my DMP state I enjoy my 30 minute power workouts and this routine will certainly fit the bill for filling that slot.

I am now overcoming my back issues and on my way to true physical health again. Excited to say the least.  I am getting back in shape so my wife and I can hike the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific rim over the coming years,,, two other items in my DMP.    Wow, this DMP is so powerful. I can feel the strength increasing in my body each day.

In addition to the body, I am working on the mind.  15 minutes sits each and every day. Focusing on the me  I have not met yet, but who is coming at me at light speed.  I am living a technicolor movie in my mind and it is the reality that is evolving into the physical world. Kinda sounds ZEN like, but it is so true. Just 15 minutes a day of sitting and training my mind.

I now realize how important meditation and prayer are in developing the life we want.  As my mind quiets, I can feel my soul filling with joy and peace.

I am blessed and I am loved.

May your week be filled with love and blessings.

    Scott, that is so in sync with what I was thinking… I had a thought about what quote will I write down on Scroll 3 when we are done with Scroll 2 and that was exactly it! For me I’m getting full on into Ashtanga Yoga every morning and starting up with a Wall climbing club with the focus mainly on my core… I absolutely love reading Scroll 2.. so powerful!

  2. Good balance of body and mind – Wk6:14 …and the individual “I” is given control and upon his understanding of the mechanism which is within his control will the result depend. Excited for your goal to hike the Appalachian Trail & Pacific Rim.

  3. So cool, you’re going to hike the PC and the Appalachian.

    I’m planning to do a hike through of the Appalachian with my sister, in 2020. The year I turn 60. Just for the adventure of it, it feeds my soul.

    I have images of the trail and the end point, Katydan, on my desktop along with all my shapes, and SMART Goals and such. Great Fun! 🙂
