First, I do the coffee. Then, I do the things. ~ unknown
When You Focus
When you focus on the ‘good’ or ’bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. ~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
Don’t waste trouble. ~Jordan Hoggard
I made a diamond out of my misfortune. ~ Alejandro Jodorowski’s Chariot
You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of suffering. ~ Henri-Frédéric Amiel
Crystal clear, sharp and bright, the sacred sword allows no opening for evil to roost. ~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
When in trying times, how can you step back to be more present within? How can you see through the expectation blind spots of the good and the bad? How do you discern the workability in a situation, crisis, discussion, argument, predicament, and/or danger?
When you do that, when you discern the workability in the situation rather than the blamestorming crisis-mongering… how are you able to better dial into continual solutions and resolutions? And, first off, how can you breathe, and simply discern that you do not have to attend every argument or conflict you are invited to?
Does someone stir something up within you? Cool. Can you put the clutch in when you get triggered, and simply use that energy to listen more intently without a peep? Or, without even a reaction rippling your serenity? I don’t suggest to forget it of course. I do, though, in fact suggest to remember it fully. Honor it. Revere it even. And, after the conversation, where you did NOT react to the trigger… go forward with yourself and engage that trigger… and… listen to THAT with as much amplified awareness as you did the person who triggered you. Listen to your Inner Parts. They need voice. And, when they arrive, something, a trigger or other, gave them an open portal. That often means they are ready to engage… Can you NOT engage them directly? Can you simply listen and experience what they need to jump around and stomp all over about? Let them. They may have coupled up Psyche Cabin Fever. Give them berth. When their storm passes… they may have a message for you after… but, only after you listen in Empathic Silence I find.
Trees with strong roots smile in storms. ~ Malay Proverb
How do YOU smile with your ears in storms to full-on hear the gift of BOOM n BLUSTER n ALL THAT you are being given by your internal world?
Thanks Much for Visiting Today.
