I met Rob two years ago through a business acquaintance who told me; “You have to meet this guy Rob, he is a high energy business man and spiritual-guy type.” I was immediately skeptical. “Spiritual guy” hmmm… Not my type. I’m what you might call a hardened New Englander. An old Yankee who thinks spiritual thinking belongs on the ‘Left’ Coast. One who values self reliance, pragmatism and intellect. I thought ‘Spiritual’ was anathema to my East Coast upbringing. Well, after meeting Rob, I was surprised to see that we clicked. I found Rob’s philosophy to not only be pragmatic but in essence in line with my values. When Rob told me; “If it aint practical, it aint spiritual” I knew I was awakening to a new conversation. Rob has taught me a lot and has given me a platform to express what I have learned. I’m still a work in progress — but trust me; I’ve come a long way.
I can’t take it!
Do you know what I do if I can’t take it?
I turn to a higher power = my objective mind!
I let the light of objective reasoning take the place of my usual emotional reactions.
Regardless of how baffled I may feel about a problem, there is always an available answer, if I am willing to get my emotions out of the way.
Has that ever happened to you? You couldn’t come up with an answer and later on, the solution was so obvious that it blew you over?
Real answers are only found when we look where they truly exist – in our objective mind (not the subjective mind where we say ‘woe is me’ to everything). I stole this ‘woe is me’ phrase from rob’s book – thanks, for that, rob. It is a great reminder that I have more resources than I am can ever imagine when I get emotionally involved and upset. What has baffled you, that later became an easy fix?
