Despite the uncertainty we see in our world, the effects of global warming and the grand challenges we encounter daily, there’s good news for you and me.
In spite of all the circumstances we may end up facing, it’s good to know that we are fundamentally ok.
Now you might not always feel you are ok, but at a psychological level you are. As a person of form you may experience illness and may even die, but at a spiritual level, nothing can hurt you. When you see this, and I mean really see this, you begin to understand that nothing can hurt you and that you enjoy innate mental wellbeing.
As you lean into this understanding you begin to realise that staying in the game makes more sense. That circumstances are neutral and that the expectation of others and even their criticism is nothing to fear.
And, when it comes to results, staying in the game, even when you don’t feel like it, has so much more to do with success than luck, a leg up, or some other advantage that you tell yourself others have had.
But, staying in the game, requires an understanding that the feeling you get when nothing seems to be working is just a thought and thoughts come and go.
So here are some tips for staying in the game:
1. It’s a universal fact that everyone has thinking that goes up and down. But, not everyone knows that if you wait long enough, fresh new thinking shows up to provide you with insight as to the next step.
2. Knowing you are OK frees you from all that fear based survival behaviour. You know, the hoarding, the neediness for more, the settling for less and so on. Once you know that fear is and always has been just a thought, all that survival behaviour no longer has the same appeal, leaving you free to stay in the game of life.
3. You are connected to life. There is a force beyond you that interacts with you minute by minute, day by day and leaning into this force, into God empowers you to create a life beyond your imagination, beyond the impossible.
4. Once you see you are connected to life, infused with thought and able to raise your consciousness to when your thinking is off, you know that staying in the game is a simple equation of You – Contaminated Thinking + Life = Results
