The Three Keys to Complete Self-Command (Part 2)

Every time life brings a blow, the first of three keys necessary to unlock that world inside of yourself where there is this true self-command is to use the shake-up to wake up.

Here’s the shake-up. Something happened. And in the moment of the shake-up, what am I habitually given to do? I’m handed something, aren’t I? In the moment of that shake-up, I’m handed something that I always accept as being what the path should be, and I follow what my mind, my heart says in its reactive mode. I recognize that, and I use the shake-up to wake up. What am I waking up to? I’m going to let the first wave pass. I’m going to let the whole movement that that instant produces… I’m just going to let it pass, just like a wave in the ocean. I’m going to let it come in. I’m not going to get on it… if you’ve ever watched a wave, it comes in and then it settles. So the first thing is to use the shake-up to wake up.

And then the second of the three keys is to remember your intention in that moment, to remember for yourself what you know to be true. Here I am and I’m angry at somebody. There’s the shake-up. But I can wake up in that moment, and the moment the anger comes and it wants me to lash out, I can remember that in that instant that this anger is using me, that it will never lead to command. How about that? That no negative state can ever deliver command, ever. And I remember that. So when I say I remember, it brings me to the third key: then I do what is right for me and everyone else. I do what is right and I do what is true based on remembering it.

When you start to let the principles of Truth, of what is right and what is good… you let them start to prove themselves to you in the moment of uncertainty, the moment where things are shaking up, you’ll start to realize you have an advocate. Reality itself is at your back. And when you realize that, nothing in the world can stop you from growing in a new kind of command… nothing… because instead of calling on yourself in instances like that which you’ve always done, you’ll begin to wake up. You’ll begin to remember your intention to remember what is true, and when you remember what is true and you act on it, you will find that what you are given cannot be replaced by anything on earth because now you have a form of confidence and command that is timeless.
