Zero to 100 in 1 second.
That’s how fast I found myself fuming! (that’s faster than a lamborghini BTW).
No one can make us feel anything except your perceptions of your experience creates how you feel. It is the realization that you are the only person who can be responsible for your feelings and your reactions and thus your fulfillment.
But it is not that easy.
When you are living unconsciously, what someone says or does can “trigger” a reaction within you. If you are not conscious of what is happening, you will react as if the other person is doing something to you, when in fact it is you who are doing the doing.
When you are living consciously, you become responsible for yourself, your experience and your actions.
You seek maximum growth within yourself and are less prone to reaction (and it still will happen – you can’t escape it).
True liberation starts by taking responsibility for your own actions (and of course, your reactions), and instead of laying blame elsewhere, choosing to have full thinking, full awareness of your experience, seeing how the struggle, the challenge is serving.
So you’re probably wondering what got my all fired up?
I have booked 4 days next week to see my family in Melbourne. We are all flying in to spend time in the nest. Poppy has prepared the menu, rooms are ready for us to arrive (thanks Nana!) and I have been explaining to Bonnie we are going to (finally) see everyone.
But, there has been 1 case of ‘rona in Sydney (no, I did not leave any zero’s off that number). Now the news is reporting the next two weeks will be critical.
Fuming. For a second. Ridiculous. F**king Idiots (and a lot of head shaking).
Then, my training of asking quality questions and applying quality answers using the Demartini Method come into play.
I want to make sure if we couldn’t fly, I am adaptable, and flexible. So I ask myself how would it serve Bonnie, myself and my family to not go to Melbourne next week?
I dissolve any attachment (and excitement) in going, ground myself and become grateful at the possibility.
If we hold onto baggage, it costs us greatly. It costs time thinking about it, energy talking about it, it can even be all consuming.
When you look inward and self-reflect on your part of the dynamic, you find deeper meaning and understanding in your situation. You find the ‘why’, the reason it has unfolded in this way, at this time for you. Then, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Gold Nugget Of Wisdom: the quality of your life is determined by the quality of questions you ask and the quality of answers you provide.
