Tiredness comes from compulsively doing those things that are destroying your health and well-being. The person who is unable to separate himself from his compulsive tendencies is enslaved by his interior conditioning; conditioning that causes him to mechanically react to his exterior life. His life ebbs and flows with every passing weather pattern, or every time the stock market falls or rises, or with every report of good news or bad news that comes with the evening news. And so, he feels exhausted at the end of each day, not knowing that there is an entirely new way.
Yes, there is a new way of living. You don’t have to talk on incessantly when you have nothing to say. You don’t have to feel anxious when someone shows up that you think you have to impress. You don’t have to appear super successful or really intelligent for any reason whatsoever. The next five blogs are going to help you destroy the compulsions that are destroying you. The secret to living a successful, happy life is to notice what you are doing to YOURSELF that stops you from living incredibly.
Destroy What’s Destroying You – Tip # 2
Next time your feelings are hurt – ask yourself, “Who is this self whose feelings are hurt?” What you will find, if you are willing to look, is that the ‘self’ whose feelings are hurt is counterfeit; it’s not you; it’s the counterfeit version of yourself, that you put together in moments when you felt weak and out of place. It’s a lie. You identified with a false entity that you declared true about you. Work to understand this, and it will fade.
Know right now that you always know what to do in any moment. Knowing what to do is not the problem. The problem is that you give yourself over to compulsive tendencies that you took on in youthful moments of fear and pain. Reminding yourself that you are identifying with a false entity when you yield to compulsive tendencies; this empowers you to see things differently and enables you to respond to the moment differently.
