Kicking the Habit

I have observed that in order to acquire a new habit, it's important to practise, practise and practise.

As I was washing my face yesterday morning, I noticed a zit on my forehead. Aaargh! I couldn't hide it under my fringe as my hair is too short. I couldn't cover the zit with makeup either as I've stopped wearing foundation. Although I was tempted to pick at it, I resisted the urge. There was only one thing to do - practise my Light cleansing and nourishing ritual. I visualised my body filling up with Light trusting that Light is renewing my skin.

By this morning the zit had grown twice its size and looking ripe and juicy. I swear it was saying: "Go on, pick me, you know you want to!"

Again, I resisted the urge and filled myself up with more Light.

As I'm writing this now, I can feel it's reduced in size. I know the zit is going to dissolve in the same magical way it appeared.

If I want my experiences to change, I have to:

Acquire a new habit;
Believe in my new habit;
Practise that new habit until it becomes second nature.
