Taking charge of your life is not always easy, especially if you feel you have no power.
You are overwhelmed, with anxiety , uncomfortable confronting aspects of your life.
A new idea, a new project, or even a new path can overwhelm us. Our thoughts of despair can become like a narcotic. This Modus Operandi is very difficult to break.
We fall prey to our thoughts, the thought creates the emotion. Often seeking external remedies believing something to be remedied. Our emotions have taken hold of us. Our ability to see through the illusion is concealed.
Byron Katie say’s, “A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it is true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”
Thoughts often repeated , go from a delicate minor path to a harsh major highway.
Sometimes a negative experience is something we feel we don’t want, but it can be information needed to shift towards right action.
Some of us “Live small”, feeling undeserving of all “Life’s Wonderful Gifts. “
Honesty and truth are crucial in confronting our inner critic, you see through the illusions and the lies you tell yourself.
We avoid discomfort, it is a natural response to avoid it, however , inquiry into that discomfort can reveal what needs to addressed.
Simple challenges may be magnified, and far-reaching, a decision may seem momentous, by giving yourself space for something new , the old patterns are swept away.
Liberate the soul from the delusion.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.-Wayne Dyer
