Principle 12 Accumulation 4

Principle 12 Accumulation 3

Principle 12. Third Week
This week we continue our reflections on principle #12, “The Principle of Accumulating Actions” which says: “If you repeat your acts of internal unity then nothing can detain you.” This week’s meeting will give us an opportunity to discuss thoughts, doubts, and insights into how we might apply this principle to our current situation.

In my reflections
I’ll focus on discovering at least one situation where my old habits and accumulated failures might demoralize me. Then I will consider at least one situation where I can try to change my accumulated habits by doing something(s) in a new way.

Principle 12 Accumulation 2

Principle 12, Second Week
This week we continue our reflections on principle #12, “The Principle of Accumulating Actions” which says: “If you repeat your acts of internal unity then nothing can detain you.” This weeks meeting will give us an opportunity to discuss what we’ve learned so far about how we applied, or could have applied this idea in the past. Can I notice how even small steps accumulate and form a direction in my life. For example, can I recognize how laying down the beginnings of a new habit could have changed a later outcome. Among other things, our weekly meetings give us an opportunity to compare notes, discoveries, questions, etc., about the principles.

Everyone has their own way of approaching these principles. I like to
take a look at the principle we are considering, and over the week I’ll try to discover at least one situation where I allowed old habits and small failures to accumulate and demoralize me. Then I will consider how, for at least one situation, I might have change this by doing some small things in a new way, with the intention of creating new habits and extending them to more situations and bigger things.

Principle 12 Accumulation 1

Principle 12, First Week
This week we begin our reflections on principle #12, “The Principle of Accumulating Actions” which says: “If you repeat your acts of internal unity then nothing can detain you.


Since this is our first go at the principle this note will centre on a kind of overview of the principle. Among other things, our weekly meetings give us an opportunity to compare notes, discoveries, questions, etc. about the principles.

Everyone has their own way of approaching these principles. I like to
take a look at the principle we are considering, and over the first week I try to discover at least one situation where I allowed small failures to accumulate and demoralize me. Then I look for at least one situation where I can recognize that small efforts added up, or could add up, resulting in my being able to do something larger.
