If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.
Still feeling the charge. Hmmm… okay, off to Youtube to see if I could find something there. EFT usually helps discharge the energy of the emotion. First search was on FasterEFT and anger. First one I looked at didn’t really fit well but this one, even though there was no tapping, was interesting to listen to.
Put out the fire of anger or it’ll destroy you
One more search on Eft anger revealed a video by Brad Yates (I LOVE his tapping style!) that helped loosen the hold that anger had on me. I actually started laughing at the absurdity of it all somewhere in the middle. Ahhhh, a much better feeling place. 🙂
Clearing Anger – Tapping with Brad Yates
NOW I can start the day off on the right foot, without all this negative chatter in my brain.
🙂 It’s kind of funny, my Headspace app just popped up this message:
Life is sometimes difficult. We know this for a fact, and yet still we resist thought things when they happen, some how thinking they ‘shouldn’t be’. Why is that?
Just another way to think about all the things that “mess up” our mood. “It is what it is”, is a good mantra to live by, it would seem. So much less stress in that way of thinking.
H. It funny how the day day has painted the evolution of my thinking.
A. That is co-creation at it’s best. Because you could not stay where you were.
H. No. Thank god. (laughter) But it’s gone from higher to higher. What I’ve … Recently, I’ve firmly felt my hands on the wheel… the control … the beauty, the glory. Just the amazing power and magnificence of it. And what I’ve realized too is that um…
A. And the … and can you feel … just gonna stick this in here… The power you’ve already accepted. Your hands on the wheel… that’s the part we want to amplify. Your hands on the wheel is your rightness, your worthiness to guide it. That’s the piece that feels the best isn’t it?
H. Yeah. Another thought that I had too was that I had been under the false assumption that I kinda had a grasp on what was in my vortex and that it was the cars, the homes the women the whatever it was, but if it doesn’t, in fact, embrace infinity, it may as well because it’s not just the things that that have been big splashes in my face that I want to see, but it’s how I like my coffee. It’s how I want my shoes to fit. The weather. It’s..
A. Because those are the moments of your life… The big events are note worthy but the big events aren’t the fabric of your life experience and it’s the fabric of your life’s experience that equals the way that you chronically feel. And the way you chronically feel is life.
H. And when I am on that high flying disk, for me, it’s like the life of a puppy because it’s just happy, joyous, oh look at that and it’s nothing about like I thought I wanted it to be and how I wanted it to go. I don’t care about that stuff now because it will reveal itself in ways that I had never imagined or seen before.
A. In the perfect timing. In the perfect way. And if that is the state of being that you are chronically maintaining, then the feeling of joy, the puppy like feeling of joy, is more general than the human like feeling of joy. But they are equal in the way they feel. They are just different in the way they manifest.
H. Yeah. And there is nothing wrong with staying in that elated state of “I don’t care. I’m just going with the way the wind is blowing.”
A. Except that you can’t stay there.
H. Well I mean, as much as I can.
A. What we are saying to you is, When you are overwhelmed, doing nothing seems like the perfect atmosphere. Just like when you are really hungry, eating something feels like the perfect atmosphere. So, when you’ve been on a lower disk, and efforting, when you first get on that high flying disk, you feel light hearted and it feels like just light and simple as the way you want to be forever. But what you discover is, light is the way you want to be forever but the simple part can become more complex and therefore more satisfying. So it’s not about choosing the simplicity of the puppy’s happiness or the more complexness of the human’s happiness, it’s get on the disk and then what’s in your vortex will come. Because we know for sure, you wouldn’t be very happy just running around, chasing whatever squirrel showed himself to you, for very long.
H. Right, right. Think that’s it.
A. Really good, really good conversation.
