Poor little me

Stop for a moment…

Step away from our minds…

Stop thinking about all the terrible things, the injustice, the unfairness, what we want, what we don’t have, what someone said 5 years ago, what we look like, what others think of us…stop the story of ‘poor little me’.

Take a moment, notice our breathing, notice the surroundings we are in, notice the life within our bodies.

Now we are awake, conscious and aware…

Pause again…

Then be grateful for all that we have…

We can do this every moment of our life and step away forever from the mind-made story of ‘poor little me’.

Gratitude brings peace.

Risk is being ourselves

The biggest challenge we all face is letting go so that we do the things we really want to do.

We are tricked by our mind and its sabotage that it is easier to walk away from truly letting go and to stay in the safety of where we are.

The challenge is that this only causes us more turmoil and longer-term it becomes harder and harder.

We resist the things we fear the most, as the mind creates the fear and the further it is from what it sees as safety the more psychological fear it will create. We do not fear what we do not want or desire, we do not fear something that we are not interested in doing, or experiencing.

Yet this is the guide, fear is the guide, because safety is suffering and the mind and risk is living, is experiencing, is joy, is jumping off the diving board, and being truly ourselves.
