Do you remember what you pretended as a child? As an adult have you ever pretended not to know something? What were you pretending not to know? I’ve always had a very active imagination. In kindergarten, I pretended to be a nurse and I treated all my baby dolls. Two cousins and I pretended to be cats. We crawled around on Grandmama’s floor, hid behind doors and spied on her.
In third grade Jenny, Mary, and I pretended we were horses. During recess we galloped around the field neighing at each other. In fifth grade, I pretended that a boy liked me. I told my cousin to hide behind a hill and watch – he would kiss me when I went up to him. To this day she loves to remind me that she hid, and he did NOT kiss me. Like I said, I had a very active imagination.
A few weeks back in The Master Key Experience we were challenged to answer the question “What am I pretending not to know?” When this question was asked, I had no clue. So, I did what they encourage us to do. I took it into a sit. What does that mean, you ask? I sat still in meditation and thought about it.
“What am I pretending not to know?” Nothing. I got nothing! “What am I pretending not to know?” Still nothing. I did sits on this for several days and the more I sat, the more anxious I became. I really should be able to answer this question, shouldn’t I? In class whenever this question would come up my cheeks would burn, and I felt like a fraud because I didn’t know anything that I was pretending not to know.
The Answer Becomes Clear
Finally, I decided to relax and just go on about my daily business. I knew it would happen. My subconscious (or “Subby” as we call it in class) took over and my answer became clear. Can you say, “Hello Law of Relaxation?”
So, what am I pretending not to know?
- The deadline for filing taxes is fast approaching and it takes me a while to finalize them as I want them perfect before I submit them.
- Type I Diabetes is a big deal. I can’t continue to eat a lot of carbohydrates, just give myself more insulin and have high blood sugars without complications from my decisions.
- I don’t have plenty of time to tell my family and friends I love them because no one is guaranteed tomorrow.
- I can’t procrastinate and expect to feel productive and good about myself.
I was very enlightened by my answers. To see what one of my class mates had to say about this question, click here.
