As I continue to develop the clearest mental picture of all I’m striving for, the fine construction of the Master Key texts enrich my experience. The word pictures developed therein so commonly apply to things I closely relate with. The most outstanding word picture developed to date which I most identify with, is that of weaving good cloth.
“Our mental material is now of the best kind; we can weave any kind of material we want; we can use any color we wish; we know that the texture is firm, that the material is solid, that it will not fade…” Haanel 5-11
I began weaving a few years ago. It is a trying experience in patience. It feels to be perhaps the most unforgiving art form when first encountered. It requires much time, steadfastness and materials. Needless to say, one does not consider the first project to be of finest quality, nor does one wish to use most premium of materials. There will be errors; mishaps; perhaps even frustrations leading to colorful verbiage.
Weaving the early cloth is not unlike constructing the first drafts of my Definite Purpose in Life. It can get sloppy; poorly formed and rife with vague ideas, not unlike missed warp threads in a woven pattern. This is certainly not the time when the threads of the finest quality are applied.
But if I maintain my focus; if I keep my goals in view and if I allow myself the “risk” of being vulnerable and patient enough to receive help as I continue to fine tune my mental image of my target, I WILL obtain the object of my desires- my dream life.
I have a friend that lives nearby. Very few people know that she weaves fabrics for virtually all of the Seattle designers, along with many French designers for which she is the exclusive provider of fabrics.
Her dharma finds her living her dream with the love of her life. She employs many disadvantaged individuals, giving them the ability to return to the workforce in a most unique way. She provides custom fabrics for numerous famous household names. Just recently she showed me a fabric she is completing for the exclusive use of a luxe fashion house many of us may never grace the doors of. The fabric she is creating for this company will be used as panels/drapery. The thread contents? Fine Gold, Silver and Copper. I shall press on until my definite purpose is ready to be constructed of such fine threads as these!
