Hey “ordinary, unassuming guru” seeking community members; have you noticed that “everyday gurus” often drop by to help you to see that your opinion about something isn’t the only opinion out there? Maxine is addressing that matter (below).
Can you give me a quick “unassuming guru” tip with my problem? When we have staff meetings at work, I get way to emotional if things don’t go as I want them to. How can I get a grip on that?
Thanks for all of your tips on your blog site. Blessings to you, Maxine Williams
Here’s my simple tip to you. Learn to follow what’s happening at the meetings (who’s saying what), without getting personally involved. I’m sure you are already always noticing what’s happening, but you’re taking it all too personally. That’s where the emotions come in.
Just notice with a wise and alert mind, and from that will come the right and perfect answers on how to respond. When you take it all too personally you quickly feel threatened in some way, shape or form whenever things don’t unfold as you want them to. When you feel threatened, then “dumb gas” descends on you and that’s when you lose grip.
Blessings to you Maxine, Rob
When have you had “dumb gas” descend on you? When have you gotten so emotionally involved that you find yourself saying something really stupid, or going blank when you should be speaking up? It happens, at times, to all of us – doesn’t it?
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
Ps Do not believe that your own personal collection of opinions is the only collection in existence. Now you can stop taking everything so personally!
