Sat nam yogis not everything in life goes as planned, but feelings of disappointment or upset are all attached to our perception.
We have certain deep seated perceptions about ourselves, our limits, who we are, etc. These are countered by our desires, our dreams. We have an inkling but no real knowing of what we are projecting through our mind. In the mist of our jumble of thoughts and emotions we co-create our Universe, “the what is” and then it happens to us. But instead of feeling like we are co creators we feel like life is against us.
The gap between the reality of what we project through our mind, the what is and our desire, dreams expectations etc, is the frustration, anxiety, unhappiness, etc. we feel. In short, we just keep on getting what we normally get and keep on desiring a different outcome. Nothing seems to change.
When our overly, assertive, positive mind says, “Oh it was just not meant to be”. Know this is just a defence mechanism to make you feel better but ultimately keep you from living your dreams. We need to change our affirmation from frustration which makes us feel important. To spending time every day to reduce the noise in our minds after meditation and dream our dreams and affirm, “I will succeed. I have forever”. When we put a time limit on our dreams we are setting ourselves up for the expected failure, or “I knew it would not work”, because once again being right is more important than being happy and complaints gain sympathy, again a short-term pleasure but not getting you to a place of joy.
Let’s this week take the challenge of learning to develop patience, notice how your body is feeling at any point in the day and relax it. Feel joy in your heart for just being and keep an empty mind except for projection of our desires and dreams. If you want life to be different you need to change your thinking. Use the affirmation, I will succeed, I have forever. Watch or read the book by Ted Chiang, Arrival it will really make you feel a change in perception.
