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.
Three weeks ago I related to you the experience I had while sitting and seeking The Silence as Haanel instructs. In that session it abruptly occurred to me that “I must not promise, even to myself alone, that I will do something unless I fully intend to honour that promise”.
I had been thinking for some time about including a promise to rid myself of a habit I did not like, and this session brought me up short on that idea. I remember thinking “deal with that when the time comes and now is not the time.” I had already been repeating aloud many, many times per day, for three weeks,”I always keep my promises”. And I had demonstrated to myself and “subby” that I meant business.
So now fast forward to Week 7. I have read the above quote from Mandino which appears in The Scroll Marked II, four times by 9 AM, Tuesday, November 10. And each time when I read this passage my thoughts immediately return to that sit of three weeks ago and I think “it’s time”….. and it really is. This thought gets stronger with each read until…
Do you understand the power this demonstrates? Smoking is one of the most intractable habits ever adopted by anyone. My readings, the simple chores and services I promise to perform, and the constant repetition aloud, of “I promise to do those chores and services” along with the constant repetition of the mantra “I always keep my promises” has made a huge impact.
It became impossible for me to ignore the fact I had just read “… 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”, and that I had fervently avowed that “I always keep my promises” about a zillion times.
So “subby” now knows I really mean business when I say “I promise” and “I always keep my promises“. I have rewired my brain and my system has shouted down the peptides that had been yelling for their smoke fix or whatever fix that habit provided.
I don’t really know how this occurs. I just know I have matter of factly just dealt with this issue, painlessly, effortlessly and almost automatically. I suspect the subconscious battle was a mini war, but, unlike most wars, there are only benefits to show for it.
