“Up you go YorkieBear into the crows nest to do the dogwatch”, said the captain of the sailing ship. (Definition of dog watch for you land lovers…a short, evening period of watch duty on a ship.) “You are watching for land because it is going to be rough seas tonight. And dog watch it is because you aren’t going to be up there long because the rough seas will throw you off into the roaring ocean”.
YorkieBear looked waaaaaaaaaaaay up to the crows nest. You would have thought he was a giraffe. And look at his thought bubble below he had become a giraffe.
YorkieBear could see a blood red circle around a giraffe. “Urrrrghhhh” he thought. He could just hear Amy telling him “as a man thinketh so is he”. YorkieBear had turned himself into a giraffe with his own thoughts. He was to blame for his own problems. He was in fear and had just become what he thought and had just read.
He had just read MKE lesson 19 and it said, “Fear is a powerful form of thought. It paralyzes the nerve centers, thus affecting the circulation of the blood.”
YorkieBear knew the above was a true statement as all of his blood felt like it had drained out of his body. Inside he was as cold as ice. Then he remembered Charles Haanel writing, “the way to overcome fear is to become conscious of power”.
Just then again a quote from Haanel popped into his mind about having “powerful, constructive and positive” thoughts.
YorkieBear knew what he was going to do to get out of being a giraffe. He needed to do something constructive, powerful and positive. He scrunched up his lips and blew a kiss to the crows nest.
YorkieBear did it! He was giving positive love to the whole world. He was flying just as a seagull would. He looked down from on high. He was flying, soaring, weaving and leaving red hearts of love all around.
YorkieBear will he ever make it to the crows nest? Or will he fly around telling everyone of all the love he has to give away? What is the Captain saying as he sees rough seas coming their way? What is going to happen to YorkieBear? Will love overcome fear?
PS YorkieBear says, “he wants to remind everyone Valentine’s Day is coming soon and to love on everyone.” Hugs and kisses from YorkieBear because he loves you and will see you next week.
