It may sound like a pipe dream, but it’s not. All we need is an understanding of what creates our experience.
My mentor and international coach and author, Michael Neill says: “understanding what creates our experience doesn’t mean we no longer have one, it means we no longer need to fear it.”
To me, happiness is the sense you get in the present moment that at a fundamental level, you are OK and that all the other humans around us are OK.
That none of us are broken – we just have thoughts about being broken from time to time.
This also doesn’t mean that we don’t fight for what we believe to be right or just it just means that we do that from a place of intention and choice versus reaction.
We are conditioned to believe that our experience is created by our circumstances and as such, we end up working hard and chasing things outside of us in order to feel “happy”.
In that sense, our experience is created from the outside, in and while this is a normal/habitual way of life, it is not the natural way of life.
The natural way of life is actually the other way around because our life is shaped from the inside out.
Have you ever been given the news about a promotion, money, or a client only to find out minutes later that you read or heard wrong? You likely went from feeling STOKED to MEH however nothing REAL happened between the initial news and the clarification – the only thing that shifted was how you felt as a result of your thinking.
That’s life, in a nutshell.
So the next time you feel stressed by what’s going on around you and the world, consider the space in your heart where you are already OK despite what’s going on AND you can educate, learn and take the needed action you believe is necessary for your family, community and world.
And, this is a practice. There are moments I see this with 100% clarity and others where I seem unable to look within, and that’s OK. Just because we can’t see electricity doesn’t mean it’s not there.
This is not the only way to BE in life, but it is one I have seen to be quite a wonderful way to go about life.
With all the love I know… <3
