We are all great storytellers on the daily. Hell if we sat down and put those stories to paper and constructed a book we most likely would have a best seller. Why??? Because we are all interesting, creative, unique, undeniably worthy of a great life.
The next time you are recapitulating over someone or something that has happened to you, know that it is going to change in the next breath and that your mind is the only dictator who will beat you, it or them up.
The mind is a powerful gift, and it is not to be taken lightly, like the breath. But, we unconsciously take those aspects of ourselves for granted because it just happens for us and that is a good thing. But it is what we do with those gifts that can create a chaotic life for us.
I listen to peoples stories all day long, and of course, I have my own, and when I feel like I am spiraling about shit that is not going my way, I remember I am the only one who can change up the moment. I know that switching gears is, not always easy, but with anything in life, it takes awareness and practice. Once we have digested the story, we have to decide what we want to do with it. Next time ask yourself, is this taking me towards my desired outcome or taking me to hell in a basket?
Let’s face it, shit happens, people suck at times, we suck at times. But if we want to find peace and not be a prisoner to our stinkin thinkin we have to first be aware that everything changes and no one or nothing is doing the perceived drama to us anymore but us. We are the only ones who can make ourselves miserable or at peace in our minds. With self-love, comes peace of mind.
Remember the golden rule:
1. Life happens for you, not to you.
2. This too shall pass.
3. Be with what is, not the perception of what was or what can be.
4. Life is pretty damn amazing if you let it.
Each day say; My mind creates beautiful solutions for my life.
Who would you be without your story? FREE, LIBERATED and PEACEFUl, now that is worth changing the channel.
The Empty Boat
No, you carry your wound. With the ego, your whole being is a wound. And you carry it around. Nobody is interested in hurting you, nobody is positively waiting to hurt you; everybody is engaged in safeguarding his own wound. Who has got the energy?
But still it happens, because you are so ready to be wounded, so ready, just waiting on the brink for anything. You cannot touch a man of Tao. Why?–because there is no one to be touched. There is no wound. He is healthy, healed, whole. This word ‘whole’ is beautiful. The word ‘heal’ comes from the whole, and the word ‘holy’ also comes from the whole. He is whole, healed, holy.
Be aware of your wound. Don’t help it to grow, let it be healed; and it will be healed only when you move to the roots. The less the head, the more the wound will heal; with no head, there is no wound. Live a headless life. Move as a total being, and accept things. Just for twenty-four hours, try it–total acceptance whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, accept it, don’t react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel the energy flowing through you that you have not felt before. ~Osho
