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.

       We 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.

       Another 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.

       An 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.

        If 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
