Profound Reminder

Experiences occur that cause us to reevaluate our lives.  Some events that I witnessed this week opened my eyes.  When I say witnessed I am referring to taking a step back and viewing my life as an outsider.  Although I struggled with setting my emotions aside, I had moments of complete clarity. Watching things unfold as a spectator allowed me to gain a different perspective. I understood, if even for brief moments, the role I had played in the creation of events.

My absolute passion is the mind, the brain, the power of thought and how it affects our lives.  I am fascinated by the science  and in awe over how our thinking really creates the lives that we lead.  Even more profound is the fact that at any given moment we have a choice.  We have a choice to change our thinking and thus change our lives by becoming aware of our thoughts and choosing ones that are better suited to leading happier lives.  Sounds simple enough, right?

Well… not so simple for me.  Despite my very clear understanding and absolute love of the mind, my thoughts run like wild-fire creating some very interesting situations to say the least. These situations invoke such an intense amount of emotion that the challenge of choosing a different thought seems damn near impossible. I have gotten so wrapped up in the emotional pain that all I could do was blame and criticize proving that what you resist persist.  And on top of it, I have gotten stuck there. I feel like a prisoner trapped in my own self-defeating mind.

A friend of mine said to me, “You will teach what you need to learn the most.”  What  I love the most I seem to need to be reminded of the most.  This week I was reminded. I was reminded in profound ways of just how I powerful my mind is in creating my life.  I was reminded of exactly what I don’t want and because of that I can choose differently even if it for a brief moment.  It is during those moments that I am at the most peace. It is during those moments that I have a complete understanding of this world and have no need to change it.  True peace of mind seems to come when we can be surrounded by chaos and yet have peace in our hearts.

Peace of mind and love to all my friends and family!
