This Week's Wisdom
Deals with Sailing through the Storm
By Paul Bauer
We've all had days or weeks that nothing seems to go right for
us, or at least this is how our ego reacts to these events. The
significance of this lesson is crucial in our ablity to grow
and manifest the results we desire in our lives.
Sailing through the storm means that you know that events
do not control your life. As Napolean Hill once said, "God
has given us control over one thing in our lives - our thoughts".
How do we use this wisdom?
Begin by asking yourself, "If this event or decison went
smoothly, how would I react?" As you begin to notice your
reactions, consider how just shifting your attention concerning
the result actually makes you feel different.
Sailing through the storm means that you are not at the mercy
of what others say or think. The famous psychologist, Abraham
Maslow once said: "Learn to be free of the good opinion
of others." Think about this just for a moment. If you can
be free of the good opinion of others, just think - when
they offer thair "bad" opinion to you, you can choose
not to accept it.
Now, let's take this concept one step further. You can be
free of the good opinion of others, which is a major step, ahh,
but what if you could be free of the good opinion of your own
ego? Now, that my friend is freedom!
Paul, what do you mean, be free of your the good opinion of your
own ego? How do I do this?
Just sit back and notice your thoughts and reactions
to your thoughts. Good or bad. The more you train your mind to
be aware of your thoughts (especially those seemingly most difficult
times when you are mentally and physically fatigued), the more
you gain strength. As the famous philosopher and author, Vernon
Howard once wrote: "The very act of noticing is a state
of strength in itself".
Sit back and notice your thoughts for just 10 minutes. Let nothing
else distract you. Breathe deeply and remind yourself that you
are the thinker of your thoughts, not the thoughts themselves.
Relax, breathe deeply...
May the warm sun of your imagination flow easily, effortlessly
as your Dreams become real...
