Yes, I know we hear about this all the time, as if we really should be living in such a way that nothing negative ever happens or that if it does we should be able to continue on as if nothing ever happened. The truth is Life does happen FOR EVERYONE and sometimes it smells like roses and at other times it smells like well, shit. There is no escaping it, our lives here on planet Earth are definitely about experiencing duality, if didn't experience kindness how could we know cruelty and vice versa. As we experience all of these emotions we make decisions, decisions about ourselves, others, relationships and life and we store all of the information in a great big filing cabinet in our minds.
In actuality when we first arrived here we didn't have much of a reference point, in terms of handling relationships and life in general we were blank slates. So we started to judge, at first not harshly. Simple things like up and down, hot and cold, tall and short etc. Then as we watched the 'grown ups' in our life we learned more about judgment about what we thought about life. Since the beginning of your life all of these judgments have been stored in your subconscious. What's also there is all of the beliefs about life and the world that have become a part of the collective consciousness and unconsciousness. An example would be that success is represented by your job and house or that those who live in poorer countries are less evolved and suffering. These are generalizations and are most commonly held by us in the West, I'm sure they have their own beliefs in the North, South and East that aren't true but are nonetheless taken for granted, one would be that Westerners are all arrogant!. Ask a Buddhist Monk if wealth represents contentment or whether possessions represent success. What would he say...?
My point is this for the most part humans are unaware of the programming and are operating from a subconscious mindset . We are reacting instead of responding and these reactions mean that we are not choosing. If we aren't choosing consciously, which is our divine birthright and our reason for being then what we are getting is what we are unconsciously choosing. Don't believe me? Ever had a speeding ticket? Did you think about speeding or did it just sort of happen?
I have been personally working on all of this for the last decade and in the last few months really paying attention to where I put my energy, what are my thoughts? What about my emotional energy? All of this is creational energy which can be used for things we want. When you start to work on this you free up energy that is misdirected and begin to use if for better purpose. I have created a list of positive statements that am I using for reprogramming my subconscious. I am also using them every time my negative ego wants to have an opinion or judgment. I freely share this with you. Although I do suggest that you come up with your own as it will be more powerful coming from your own inner voice.
I'm not saying that shit doesn't happen, it does. What I am saying is that some or a lot of it can be avoided and yes you can choose to have a different experience. This exercise will certainly make you more aware of what you do think about and give you an option to change it for something better. When that happens you will live more positively because what you think about you create. I personally choose happiness over sadness, Goodwill over jealousy, acceptance over judgment and so on. It's just much happier in my Universe, how's yours?
