Well, over the last 9 days I have shared some of things that I love about knowing the principles behind life.
For the last of my 10, I’m actually going to share what I hate about it!!!
One of the main things that you will hear majority of principle people sharing is that circumstance never cause us to feel anything, our thoughts do. And we really mean this, 100% of the time, no matter how much it looks like someone, or something, outside of us caused us to feel a certain way.
And sometimes, I really hate that!
Well, it looks like this to me;
When I first started to see trough the illusion of thought, it was like a weight lifted, I didn’t have to believe my thought, I could allow them to pass and feel something different. Every moment offered me an opportunity to think and feel differently. It was like a long, hot, luxurious bath after a hard day – heaven.
Then came my first big, post-insight, thought storm. And…oh…. my….gosh! It hit me like a train.
Someone had really pissed me off. How could any of this principle nonsense make any sense? What an absolute crock of shit!
But slowly, I started to see that even this was thought and the clouds started to clear.
Bit by bit, a voice in my head grew louder during thought storms, reminding me that thoughts pass. And before long, I found I couldn’t really take thought storms quite so seriously any more.
And sometimes I really hate that! When I am in a mood and really want to blame someone or something for it, it is so frustrating that I just can’t take that seriously. That I kinda know, beneath the crap, where my feelings are coming from. Ahhhhh, but I really wanna blame someone else, just this once I want them to be at fault and the cause of my annoyance…. Please?
The principles stand steadfastly refusing to do anything differently and yet again, I see that my feelings come from my thinking in the moment.
In the knowing of this lies our freedom.
(In case you didn’t spot it, it’s actually one of the things I love really, that freedom of knowing where my experience comes from makes my life a much lighter, and more fun, experience)
