Week 4 – “I Do” and/or “I Think”

Chocolate HillsThis week I want to define the word “I” so we can get an understanding.

Haanel “The ‘I’ of you is not the physical body; that is simply an instrument which ‘I’ uses to carry out its purposes; the ‘I’ cannot be the Mind, for the mind is simply another instrument which the ‘I’ uses with which to think, reason, and plan.”

So here is the challenge:  if “I” is not the physical body, nor is “I” the Mind to think, then what is it?  This took me days to figure this one out.  Haanel’s next paragraph says “The ‘I’ must be something which controls and directs both the body and the mind; something which determines what they shall do and how they shall act.”

I still did not understand until….. There was something i was suppose to do last week, i told them i would do it, and I did not do it.  Did I feel bad, no because it was a habit of telling this person today, and then it got delayed another week.

This is when it hit me, reading on who “I” was or is, and in my mind thinking of I needed to do something for this person.  I put it together and told myself “Ok, ‘I’ need to do this,” I thought it and immediately did it without hesitation knowing I control my “I”.  I was so enthusiastically joyful that “I” discovered my “I” and put it to work and felt great!

I hope this helps you, the reader, to find your “I” because Haanel I can be what I will to be.” 

Have a great rest of the day and peace be the journey…

George you do fantastic. WE all do it and do it and do it and learn while doing until we see results. It takes small steps, then the giant ones and we are there. I have learned from you today. That exactly how my things are going. You have a interesting blog and good luck. Will be watching your next steps.

Great job George !!! I believe we are body, mind and spirit. The “I” would be the true person. The spirit.

Aloha my dear friend, Nice job in using the Law of Dual Thought. Being the observer in one’s life and recognizing how we feel about something is one of the first steps one takes during their journey of self discovery. DTM says…B A M !! You are starting to show cracks in your cement. Let your golden buddha come out !! See you in week five !!! Mahalo

The concept of “I” as described by Haanel is easy to grasp, difficult to explain. But you did a great job, George. Way to go!
