MEMORIES OF PATH & LESSONS LEARNED IN THE EARLY DAYS
One thing in particular I remember from my time with PATH in KC was learning from Rev. Sharon how to say No from a calm and confident state of mind. She shared the information that someone took the time to count the Yes's and No's in the Bible both Old and New Testament. In Metaphysics, the Bible can be a metaphor for the evolution of consciousness from innocence to enlightenment.
There are 3 times as many No's as there are Yes's.
Therefore, she encouraged us to learn to say No as a way to get clearer about what our true Yes's are. It definitely took conscious awareness to tune in to myself any time I was tempted to do something from a place of should or ought rather than a clear 'yes, this is mine to do'. As I practiced saying NO from my place of inner truth, opportunities for my true mission opened up and the YES times were so much easier to recognize.
I am grateful everyday for that teaching.
