The Burwell House Mysteries- Part 2
Ron and I had been discussing internship sites all semester. To receive full credit for this class, part of the major project, was to fulfill an internship. Ron suggested we try to apply to the same site and work together for the summer if that was possible. I thought that was a brilliant idea, but we needed to do more research. We both agreed to interview with three different sites so that we could make a quality decision. Ron was a Floridian and I was a North Carolina native. We both knew that wherever we landed, we would need room and board.
One day as Ron and I chatted over dinner at the student union, we felt as if our answer was right there before us. Let me explain that one of our projects in this Social Psychology class was to delve into a book that we felt was psychological in nature. We were told that once we finished the book, we were to report on it. We were then asked to apply the psychological strata we learned and apply it to real life if that was possible.
We read the book called " The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne. One of the first quotes in the book we read was, " As above, so below, as within, so without." Both Ron and I were entrenched in the book and had it read in two library night study sessions. The book revealed the power of attraction. You bring forth what it is you want in your life. It also teaches the law of intention. Be mindful of what you want, and ask for it. It stresses that our thoughts need to be intentional. All that you want will come to you in the way it was intended for you, by a divine plan. I knew as the book was unfolding, that this power was the power I thought of as " GOD." In fact, many bible verses were written in these pages and as a bible study enthusiast, I knew this book was meant for me.
