CTI??? Daily tips??? Read the introduction to the tip #1 if you would like to have some explanations.
Worries and doubts, fears and anxieties… So often, we put so much attention into them and believe that they mean something, about us or about the outside world.
What I have learned through studying the inside-out understanding of the human experience (CTI included): these emotions are completely irrelevant to making decisions and taking action. We can do something and worry, we can avoid doing something and worry, we can do something and not worry, we can not do something and have not a single worry in the world. Emotions and actions are completely independent threads of our life.
The tip for today, which originally was supposed to be called “No Worries”, is inspired by a glass I bought two years ago, and reads: Keep Calm and Love Life.
This coincides with an advice Michael Neill gives for a goal setting: for each goal you set, append to it “…as a part of my wonderful life” and see how well it sits together. So often goal-setting becomes synonymous with challenging yourself, stressing out, and putting your health and well-being on the line. What if it did not have to be like that, what if you could fully enjoy your wonderful life while pursuing your goals, should you choose to have them? What kind of goals would you pursue, and in how the ways you pursue them might change with that small appendix?
Not so surprisingly, the thread of wanting to get somewhere else and being continuously dissatisfied with where I was has been a part of my life too. But with each year, I become more and more aware of how dissatisfaction is completely mine in making. In fact, last year I was very conscious of the fact that but for my thinking, my life would have been amazing… And it keeps being the case: because I keep believing that some parts of my life are not as they are “supposed” to be, and because I keep reflecting on how the closest people tell me about the changes I have to make in my life (each of them suggesting their own version of what I fear, what I lack, what I should keep in mind and what I should do), my thoughts keep spinning and keep creating dissatisfaction with my life.
But hey, I could take all the actions there are to take, and make all the changes there are to make also without feeling dissatisfied! In fact, if I don’t waste my mental/emotional energy on creating dissatisfaction, I have much more of it available, and I am much more effective and efficient in doing what is there for me to do in each moment of my life.
Take a minute and look for yourself: if you could enjoy the peace and freedom feelings of a calm mind, and approach life with gratitude and appreciation, and share love with people around you, what kind of positive changes it would bring to your life?
Guess what? It’s in your reach! And even better news: there does not have to be any effort involved! ;) The change comes through understanding of how human experience works, how it is created through the power of Universal Thought. Contact me if you want to know more!
Until next time,
Enjoy your life! ;)
