People say what they say....and sometimes we really lose our peace. How to get it back? Listen to a couple of suggestions here.
Here's what its like to be in someone's presence without believing your story about them. Use your imagination!
When you do your work, you clearly identify the difficult situations from childhood. You only need one situation. Start there. Look closely. You may be surprised at the results.
If you can change your mindset about your parental units (mom and dad) you can find greater peace in your current everyday life!
When you have a pet peeve emotion you don't like, such as "hysterical" or "controlling" then you may want to look more deeply at why you don't like it.
Do you worry about money? Do you believe more money is better than less money? Who would you be without that thought? You might be HAPPY.
When you go beyond assuming you're unhappy because (x,y,z) and find out why you believe that's true....you may find incredible freedom.
If you really capture what you're thinking about others, when you converse or interact with them, and take it through inquiry, you can find peace in any conversation.
Do you have judgments about interruption? What about noticing when YOU interrupt other people, even in your own thoughts?
You can find easy, simple ways to relax with other people, even if you're giving a speech. Bring peace anywhere, and if you can't....question your thinking (I'll talk about this more next episode 62 as well).
You've probably noticed that we joke about death and dying at times, but what if you could really allow the humor of our temporary status here in life?
What else would you be in this moment, besides the definition of your body, besides your thoughts? Everyone can do this, not just gurus and sages.
We usually tell the story of the memory of someone we loved, or a past situation, job, house or time of life as better than the one we're in now. Who would you be without that story? What if NOW were joyful?
