We (Nick and I), have someone giving us a hard time with our website – causing viruses that we’ve had to clean up twice in the past few weeks. Why are so many folks so uptight these days that they spend their time in damaging ways?
Karen C. asked me, “How can I be at ease with people when so many people are complaining about the economy, terrorists, and the general malaise that prevails with the oil spill, global warming and what not?”
I responded, “Thank you Karen; that’s a great inquiry and I appreciate your passionate curiosity.” I went on to say, “Think of someone that you love being with and that you want nothing from … perhaps a grandparent, a child or even a pet. Notice the ease that you feel when you are with this person or pet. Tension occurs when you want something from your family or friends or from your neighbors or strangers, or from the government or your religion or even the planet. You feel that this outside agent can give you something that you need, but you fear it won’t happen.”
Pause… pause… pause…
Take a moment, now, to think about this:
- What if you felt that you had the personal power to take care of all of your needs…. would you be feeling tense?
- What if you felt that the ‘cosmic boomerang’ never failed you, and if you were willing to give away what you wanted (money, love, harmony in worldly affairs, encouragement to help others be successful , feelings of security by believing that others are far more capable than they imagine) that it would come back to you multiplied … would this not make you feel at ease with everyone … with the world?
Tension does not occur when you ask for a cup of coffee and have the money to pay for it. There is a sense of inner security that allows you to ask, expecting to receive.
What are you asking for in your life right now that you are fearful you will not receive? Who are you blaming – the government, God, your spouse, your boss? Is there really any outside power that can determine your fate?
The whole world seems to be in frantic pursuit of things from the world … without the slightest idea that all sowing begins on the inside. By seeing that whatever you desire … is available … when you truly believe that you have what it takes to cause it to happen; when you believe this, you turn your creative energies in the right direction (not the wrong direction like sabotaging my website!) Ha Ha.
There is only one way possible to banish tension – through knowledge of the entire ‘process of giving’ so that we may receive. You can stop feeling threatened by the world when you know that your ‘personal model of reality’ determines the world you experience. Work on making your inner kingdom rich with prosperous thoughts of gratitude and appreciation … that is Vital Step 1. If you do not take this internal Vital Step I, promise you that your outer kingdom of events and things will not offer you what you desire.
Johnny. is a very successful real estate salesman that really loves finding the right and perfect home for his customers. Johnny appreciates his customers. He gets to know them and even invites them to enjoy a barbecue with him and his family (in his backyard). He means it! John earned over $250,000 in commissions four years ago when the market was red hot and he earned $250,000 in commissions last year when the market was stone cold. How’d he do that? Hmm. You tell me.
Please leave your comments to help others with this inquiry about tension and how it affects you … and what you have found that has rescued you from such anxious feelings. Why do you feel tense about your life right now? What specific change of mind has helped relieve you of your tension? Perhaps you have not resolved your tension – ask questions so we can help you.
Blessings and thank you, thank you, thank you!
