I’m not going to keep you on your toes with this one. Here they are: Non-resistance, non-judgement, non-attachment.
Completely accept “what is”. Accept the situation the way it is as a temporally “is-ness” of things. Be ok with everything that surrounds you. Welcome every experience and look at it as just another learning curve along the way.
For instance: One evening I ate a lot of ice cream before bed time. I was up all night because of the “sugar-overdose” and by the morning I felt absolutely drained and exhausted, so I wasn’t particularly looking forward to work 8 hours that day. I was a mess and my attitude toward the day was pretty bad. In my head I started having these obsessive thoughts about how bad I have it in life. And then I caught myself and realized that I maybe I shouldn’t go in that negative direction. So I started saying to myself: Take it easy now! You’re not gonna die , everything is fine, pull it together, don’t take this too seriously. And it helped. I got out of this pathetic mindset and went about my day.
My advice: Don’t take life or yourself too seriously! Be one with the flow of life!
When you judge a situation, circumstances or people you are concentrating on what’s wrong with things. And when you concentrate on those things you get more of the same and vicious cycle goes on.
For instance: If you don’t like your neighbor and you perceive him or her as a person who’s not a pleasant individual you will not see any good in him or her.
Neighbors are willing to kill each other over insignificant matters like a tree’s branch hanging over the fence, being loud and small things like that. And of course it is not about the tree in the first place. It is all about one person’s point of view is threatened by someone and it needs to be defended. When you defend what you believe is “right” you don’t particularly want to solve the problem; the opposite happens; you want to sustain the problem so you can prove it over and over again that you are right; which ultimately makes you fear superior.
Advice: Try not to judge anything for an hour! Let me know how it went and how it feels?
When you attached to things you strengthen your ego. Things give you a sense of self identification. Like: “I’m one of those guys who has a pitbull and drives a BMW and works as financial adviser” and things like that. We are constantly building our story about who we think we are. (Which has actually nothing to do with who we really are.)
Let things come and go in your life without the need trying to control how long they stay.
Your mantra should be: “This too will pass.”
Which is true for all (bad or good) things. If there is something good in your life right now, know that it will not last forever and knowing that makes you appreciate things more. When you are face something that you don’t like know that that too will disappear and you will have the power to push through it.
These are very simple principles but we are programmed in a way so it is extremely hard to live by them. Wouldn’t ya agree?
