We have been reading Scroll 6 now for almost three weeks. Rethinking perhaps how we see our emotions and how they affect us. Understanding that they will flow and ebb…watching for darkness to turn to light, sorrow to turn to joy, even laughter will change to sadness-and back to joy….always changing…knowing they are always changing…acknowledging the changes…taking control!
Thoughts charged with feeling lead to actions. Og says that “Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his action: strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.” Could it be that when we let our thoughts (emotions) run amok, we are reacting instead of determining our course? In Proverbs 25:28 it says, “Like a city that is broken into and without walls is a man who has no control over his spirit.” We are to control the currents of emotion that flow through us. As a two year old who wants their own way, and will throw a tantrum to get it, our emotions can try to control us into becoming a very cheap copy of who we are meant to be! We must be in charge of us…
We are so close….to our Commencement. The word sounds so…official! The actual definition means-a beginning, a start. A young bird sits on the edge of the nest…preparing to do-what it was meant to do-fly! I am perched on the edge…I’ve tested my “wings” and I’m ready to fly! Our celebration and kick off next week will be the beginning of the rest of my life! Everything I’ve heard, seen, done, learned has led up to this point in my life!
Get ready world…here I come!
