Toilets, Egos, and Fears
I have to do what!?
That was my reaction when I heard about the course’s challenge for the week.
I knew when I started this Ancient Secret course I was outside my comfort zone.
Oh, but friend, I knew discomfort or not, my soul had to take this course.
How did I know? Simply, I felt it!
It was as if an imaginary rope was pulling me and I either had to be pulled by it or dig in my heels and suffer my rope burns.
It all began with my friend, Bob, giving me a book titled - The Ancient Secrets of a Master Healer. Initially, I thought… Another book… Then - well I should at least give it a peek.
Little did I know where that peek would take me.
It’s the 2nd week of this 14-week course and, between all the foreign concepts and the learning of technology, I’m paddling hard to stay afloat.
And then… the challenge…
Toilets, Egos, and Fears
There is so much learning with this course. Where to start?
Among many other lessons, we are discovering the importance of letting go of our egos, and fears, doing everything with love, and giving each thing we do a 100% loving effort.
With that being said…
We are asked, just as the master healer was asked by his master, to clean a public bathroom as an act of loving service at 100%.
Yep, you heard me correctly. Clean a public bathroom with love…
Why clean a public bathroom?
Well, it’s one of the most perfect ways to let go of your ego, face your fears, and be willing to give a 100% with love.
I did it! I actually gave my 100% with love.
But believe me when I say I didn’t readily do it. Nope.
I went through my process, which is the point.
To experience what it feels like to overcome whatever stands in your way and to heart -fully give all you’ve got…
To be willing to overcome and do it!
What is giving at 100% look like?
It’s showing up fully - mind, body, soul, and spirit, and giving with all your heart.
Not your head - your heart. (Or not ego but love)
It’s loving what you’re doing and who you’re doing it for.
It’s paying attention to the tiniest of details.
In my toilet case:
I meditated for 2 mornings asking for assistance to give my 100% with love.
I prayed on the way and even created a little ditty about working with love.
By the time I got there, I was so full of love, yet I still felt the fluttering of trepidation
But once I started I was full speed on. I chose love.
I focused on being of service with all my heart.
Darling, I’m happy to report it was wonderful!!
Love and joy oozed out of being as I scrubbed the walls, the toilet, the sink, the toilet paper dispenser, the hand dryer, and the floor.
Here’s what’s most amazing… every person I came into contact with I felt love from them. It was as if we were all in on this coming-from-love at 100% idea.
Wow! Just wow!
How About YOU?
When was the last time you shared from your sacred heart as an act of service with love?
Dearest, when was the last time that you gave something a 100%?
If you can’t remember a time then please let NOW be a perfect time.
If it’s been a while I encourage you to go for it.
If you feel you regularly give 100%, I offer this question - How can you go even deeper with your loving service?
