A Herculean Task

After listening to the Four Agreements, I began to wonder how I was going to be impeccable with my word. I began listening to the Law of Attraction and Ask and it is Given. The basic premise of the Law of Attraction is that our thoughts are manifested in the real world. Negative thoughts produce negative results and vice versa. So again I am getting the message to be less negative. The Law of Attraction explained that you replace the negative thoughts with more positive ones. So if a guy cuts you off in traffic, you say an affirming statement so you won't fester anger at the driver and therefore hurt yourself. Although I haven't gone 21 days without gossiping, criticizing or complaining, I have noticed my negative statements and thoughts and made an effort to change them in the moment - a wonderful first step.

Recently, I decided my next audio book would be the Bible. I sent up my prayer that I find a Bible that was interesting to listen to because it would have to be interesting to hold my attention. While browsing the library's audio section, I found The Bible Experience. It is a powerful and moving reading of the Bible with movie caliber score and sound effects. Getting through the Bible is proving to be a challenging task and the library required that I check out all 60 Old Testament CDs at once. I have had it for just over a week and I am just about to get through with Deuteronomy. I am still plugging along, listening whenever I can. I am hoping to finish all 89 hours of the Bible - Old Testament and New by Easter. That would be an accomplishment.
