Have you ever noticed
that two people can confront the same circumstances with very different
reactions? This is a matter of attitude and nothing else. Freedom is being able
to say, “Rich or Poor, alone or with a mate, physically healthy or not,
employed or laid off, I believe that peace of mind is possible. Our mind has a
very bad habit that is takes us to a place that we feel unsafe, irritated,
worried. It is impossible to close our ears to our inner voice and nobody wants
to accept that we care too much about ourselves and not about other people. We
take ourselves as an “I” since childhood and make it the center of our life and
also our only truth.
have all experienced what is like to be having a perfectly fine day and have a
situation or crisis arise that sends us into a tailspin. It may be something
small like a traffic jam making us late, or something more severe like the loss
of a job. Our response can seem automatic. Peace of mind is possible because
whatever the circumstances maybe, it all depends on our attitude. It is all
about the way we confront the issues. Though at first it may be difficult to
accept, freedom depends on recognizing that you are not a victim of the World.
way of saying this is: There is absolutely nothing in the World that has the
power to ruin your day. If you are upset, it is because you have directed your
mind to be so. Initially these truths can be hard to accept because you have
become so accustomed to giving your power away. The moment we feel
dissatisfied, we start blaming others for our discomfort. After all, emotional
pain arises with unhappiness. It controls us through our mind and our thinking
becomes negative. Drama feeds drama. So every time you blame another person for
your unhappiness you are giving away your power. Therefore, we should learn how
to observe problems once they are occurred. We should see people as our
reflection, listen more and not always judge a book by its cover. We should
find a way to look at problems externally before we react. Changing our
attitude will detach us from suffering and it will also transform us to
freedom. Stop blaming and start healing.
important part of healing i.e., letting go of fear, is developing compassion.
Instead of going out in the World and finding plenty of reasons to be upset, go
out and discover reasons to extend love. There are thousands of reasons waiting
for you right now. A helpful thought to remember is that miracle is nothing
more than allowing an old grievance to become a current compassion.
you ever run short on reasons to be compassionate, remember there is always one
good reason: it makes you feel better than anything else you could do.
When you are upset, remind yourself the cause of your discomfort is your
own attitude. THIS IS FREEDOM
