Non-movement = depression. This is a simple formula that holds much insight and Truth. You see
depression is a form of hopelessness. When you feel hopeless about things getting better is when
depression comes. The mind has to support the diagnosis of hopelessness by attaching to evidence such
as things going wrong in the past which implies, they will continue to go wrong in the future. With an
unending loop like this to feed on, the egoic mind never runs out of fuel and spirals into depression.
The non-movement I mentioned is what starts the thought process in motion. If you don’t like your life
most likely you begin to try to change it. Many times, people don’t know how to accomplish this which is
why they ar...
To implement lasting change in our lives, it’s important to overcome the habitual, egoic thinking that
keeps us stuck. These three steps will help you accomplish that. So here they are:
1. Set a plan ahead of time
2. Plan and take action that sets you up for success
3. Identify and implement the actions as acts of self-love
The first step is to set the plan ahead of time. The reason this is often necessary is because the ego loves
to get involved at the time of action. The ego wants to talk you out of change for fear of the unknown
so, the first thing you want to do is relax the ego. Tell yourself, I’m not doing anything today, this is just a
plan for the future. The ego doesn’t d...
Here’s a regular practice that is very misunderstood. It has become commonplace for people to decide
to “let things go” or “let go and let God”. This is a wonderful idea however it needs to be understood
and done properly.
When something happens in our lives that we intellectually label as negative, it triggers negative
emotion within us. This process is important to understand because it has two separate aspects:
1. The intellectual label
2. The emotion within
Both of these need to be dealt with before a situation can be “let go”. It doesn’t necessarily matter
which order you do these two things, and can depend on the situation itself.
To handle the intellectual aspect, it’s important to find a way of viewing...
Old wounds can come in many shapes and sizes. Not all of the specifics can be covered in a blog so I’ll
throw some things out there to at least give you a basic understanding. One of the common occurrences
is that people do the work on an old wound and then it comes up again later on in life. When this
happens, the initial reaction is usually something like: “I thought I dealt with this already” or “I must not
have dealt with it correctly if it’s back again”. Most often, this isn’t the case – especially if a substantial
amount of time has passed like 6 months or a year. Usually this is a case of a large wound needing
several healings because of its size. We can’t always handle healing an ent...
In this fast-paced society multi-tasking is often a way of life. Most people do it regularly and wear it like
a badge of honor as if it were something to be proud of. Of course, there are some jobs and some times
in life that multi-tasking is required, I won’t be talking about these. I’ll be discussing all the times we
multi-task when it’s not necessary.
The problem with multi-tasking is that we’re dividing up our attention. We only have a certain amount
of attention to use at one time. If we’re doing four things at once, we can only give 25% of our attention
to each thing. It’s impossible to do a job as effectively with 25% of your attention as you can with 100%
of your attention. You will simply perform bett...
We are responsible for our own lives. Therefore, it is our responsibility to be disciplined enough to live in
a functional, well-balanced way, no one else’s. I certainly lived my share of dysfunctional years so when I
shifted at age 35, I needed to learn an entire new way of interacting with the world around me.
Since I had never lived in a functional manner before, I wasn’t quite sure what it looked like or how to
do it. I began to develop my own idea of what a healthy, balanced life looked like. After working my first
year, I was notified that I hadn’t taken any vacation time. I was shocked, this had never happened to me
before, in the past I was always needing more time off. Although receiving a check for a...
