As you may recall from last month’s article, there is a wagon that is careening out of control down a large mountain. We are on this wagon. The wagon is gaining speed as it continues on its path. Its only path is one of destruction. It causes pain and suffering whereever it goes. In the end, it has no choice but to crash. It is being powered by our limiting thoughts and negative beliefs. These thoughts suggest that there is not enough to go around, that the Universe is limited, that we must compete for every possession we have, that I am not good enough or I am not worthy of abundance and that hard work can get us through anything and everything. This is a tireless and winless game and puts your life in a vicious samsaric cycle of despair and desperation. It can only lead to pain and suffering. You have a choice. You can remain on the wagon or you can jump off. Are you ready to jump?
Thirty days, three days, three minutes! You can go without food for thirty days. You can go without water for about three days. Stop breathing for more than three minutes and you die! Breath is Life! Simple and profound
How did your day go yesterday or today – joyful or stressful?
Whether at home or at work, we sometimes encounter moments of being overly busy with too much to do, too many interruptions, and/or not having enough time to accomplish everything we want to. Obviously we’re talking stress and frustration and wouldn’t we all like to avoid those moments, especially when we wake up the next morning and have to do another one of those days. Common sense says if we could just stop at stressful moments to try and relax to collect our thoughts it would help, but we certainly can’t always rely on being able to stop when unplanned bumps in the road appear.
