Week#18 ‘To be OR not to be’ Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Act3, Scene1, Spoken by Hamlet By William Shakespeare
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action
.
What the heck does that all mean? I would love to hear what YOU think it means YOUR translation not some experts!  I’m leaving it at that for now…

So as a Guide it is interesting to see who in the #MKMMA Tribe make it to the end of the course and on the way to Their Bliss. And for what reason do they complete it?

…In herald of the call OR just complete because they are stubborn and wont quit no matter what, even though they are not committed 100%.

Who makes the DECISION then hunkers down and does ALL the work!   Who walks down that ‘yellow brick road’ one step at a time AND who goes ‘falling down the hole to follow that white rabbit’

Are YOU fighting to not fall asleep in the field of poppies? Then hiding in the haunted forest from the flying monkeys? OR are YOU playing riddles with the Cheshire cat as he teaches you all about where you are at this time OR are YOU completely lost in the maze with the Queens guard hunting you down?

Then before YOU know it you have met some others along the “yellow brick road” looking for courage, a heart and some brains (knowledge) hmmm this looks a bit like a Master Mind Alliance here…Everyone doing their part on their own journeys but helping each other along the way, through the bad parts with a simple thing as a “bucket of water” and in the good times as they each realize it was all ‘within themselves’ after all.

OR do YOU go from small to BIG, you end up at some crazy tea party  alice-in-wonderland-party-tea-party

 

 

 

…then race into a maze where a trial for the knave of heart’s, who stole some tarts is being held, which by the way you think is ridiculous so you tell everyone, who then are all offended and the Queen orders “off with her head”.

…All the while following the white rabbit … images-1

Then you wake up still where you were before you fell down the rabbit hole…

So where are you on Your Journey so far?

Are You Working with a Master Mind Alliance, trial by trial working it out, getting it done! Dragons – 0 You – 25+, realizing YOU already have what you need to achieve WITHIN you. If you reach out to those around you, contribute and accept their assistance, then you can do great things, which you wouldn’t do on your own.

OR are YOU going crazy round and round up and down, STILL finding yourself in the same place with the same thoughts as where you begun when you wake up outside the Rabbit Hole?

“I cant tell you right now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit” “Perhaps it hasn’t one” Alice ventured to remark.“Tut, tut, child!” said the Queen. “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find itAlice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll

 YES people its YOUR DECISION are you walking down the Yellow Brick Road step by step to Your Bliss?

OR falling down the Rabbit Hole into the safe known?
