“There’s nothing either smart or unhealthy however thinking makes it so.”
The title of this nice composer song -Night and Day – conjointly describes the generally changeable nature of my outlook on life.
Example: it’s late evening, and i am pondering all I even have to accomplish within the week ahead – book business details, workshop preparation, handouts to complete, that audiorecording script i need to put in writing, a decision to my sister, plane reservations to Chicago, and so on, to not mention the trivia of phone calls, email, net searches, and follow up related to every project. I feel weak, tired, egoistic, and incapacitated.
Next morning: I awake before dawn and do some deep respiration. I meditate, watch the sun rise, and thirstily anticipate the day. Today, i’ll learn the ship date for my book, have the chance to make a brand new piece of writing, set up a workshop, and perhaps take a walk and revel in some recent air.
The same circumstances that appeared intimidating, scary, and not possible to manage the night before seem full of potential this morning. i’m doomed – i’m lucky. i will get sick – I feel great! i’ll actually fail – My day is full of promise.
My husband Jim and that i decision these “Night and Day” viewpoints the nice Reality and also the unhealthy Reality. i might well be within the smart Reality – positive, pleasant, and filled with risk. The sun is shining, birds singing, and life is simple, flowing and fun. issues exist, however I will handle them. My energy is powerful and resilient.
But generally I drop into the unhealthy Reality, wherever life is troublesome, depressing, and disagreeable. I feel weighed down, inadequate, and ineffectual. i am unable to realize my energy or my spirit.
Is it a choice? i believe it’s. Something is going on out there, and my viewing lens changes my expertise. My thinking makes it therefore.
Sometimes I will get there on my very own steam. I simply modification my mind, or make fun of myself, or both. once i am too tired to seek out the road back, I rest or take myself out for a cup of tea. When i’m kind to myself, the nice Reality continuously returns.
And so I experiment with the fact channel and the way the external world changes with my viewing lens. Shall I sleep in the nice or unhealthy Reality today? however concerning you? that one ar you in now? are you able to cross over?
I would like to hear from you on these queries. The capability to believe that by dynamic my thinking I will modification my reality could be a gift. i do know this. Partly, my life is concerning sharing this gift.
I hope you are within the smart Reality these days.
