“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms, to choose one`s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one`s own way.”
- Victor Frankl
I want to give you a tested technique for gradually and surely increasing your inner peace. It works for you regardless of the noise and confusions that may surround your day.
You will detach yourself as a mental participant in these noisy events. You will observe them, be aware of them, but will not involve yourself mentally or emotionally. Perhaps you ask, “But can this really be done?, it sounds impossible to separate myself from the constant clatter around me.” I assure you that it can be done by you.
You see your True Self is detached from everything on the outside. It has awareness of the of the exterior conditions but does not get emotionally upset by them. You have a True Self at this very moment. At the very instant of reading these lines you are capable of mental detachment from all exterior problems.
Be calm beholder of life. Mentally detach yourself. Stand back and quietly observe everything that happens to you and around you. Do not resist merely observe. Do not try to change or improve or destroy it, merely be aware. See yourself as someone apart, which, in truth, you are.
You need not to fear that this detachment loses your control of things. It does not harm your daily tasks. They will go on as before. It may surprise you to find them proceeding as before, even improved. Mental detachment is, in fact a higher form of control.
I PLEDGE ATTUNEMENT TO THE GLOBAL AWARNESS OF ONENESS ON OUR LIVING PLANET EARTH.
AND TO OUR SACRED HOME, UPON WHICH ALL LIFE RECEIVES SUSTENANCE AND INTERDEPENDS.
WE ARE ONE HUMAN SPESIES, WHOLE IN BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT, FREE TO CHOOSE THE ESSENTIAL VIEW OF COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS AND GRATITUDE.
DIVERSE, DISTINCT AND INDIVISIBLE, WITH DIGNITY, JUSTICE,EQUALITY AND SUPREME POWER OF LOVE.
IN HARMONY WITH NATURE, FOR OUR COMMON WELL BEING AND GREATEST BENEFIT FOR ALL.
Anything that you want in this life you have to take the first step. No judgement, no fear, no ego, then take the next step. What you think about will come about, just as the spring follows summer. As life is a game, keep playing and looking forward to each cycle as a new beginning, its not what you get, its who you become in the journey.
