Derail That Train

Derail That Train

Dear Blessed One,

Are you doing with your focus on an outcome? How would it be to just BE with the doing, fully, and completely present in the moment? See if you can let go of the desired outcome and move with the inner impulse of Life once you’ve set your intention. Notice when you jump into the future following some belief, dream, or fear.

You can examine and challenge beliefs. They are not your own anyway. Your thoughts are not your own. They are leftovers from many generations and they’ve been spoon-fed to you since the day you were born.

None of what you believe is an original thought, it all comes from the past. The good news is it’s not hard-wired. Look at what causes you to freeze, judge, reject, react, etc and ask if that belief serves you (or the world) in any way, if not, thank it and say goodbye to it.

Yes, neurons that fire together wire together, however you can begin dissolving neuro-nets by confusing the program. Throw a wrench into the works by doing something completely different when you notice a pattern…

– jumping jacks while counting backwards
– sing, even if it’s as simple as Happy Birthday
– run splash cold water on your face
– dance

Every moment is simply the effect of the last moment. What are you creating right now? Our lives are the outcome of the thoughts we’ve bought into. Can you just notice the thoughts as they arise without following them? When you get on the thought-train, it can take you for a very long ride out of the present moment, which is the only thing that is real. It’s also the only place you can know the truth of who you are.

Everything outside of this very moment is a projection based on what we’ve collected from the past. It is possible to derail that train.

Do you have a belief that you have fear? Did you know that the physiological response in the body is the same for excitement as it is for fear? So what if fear is just misunderstood excitement? The only real difference is the expected outcome. When focus is in the moment and not in some projected future (the expected outcome), is it possible to redefine that aroused energy as excitement rather than fear? I’ve found it’s much easier to move forward with excitement as my fuel. I sense you will too.

Throw the switch, derail that train, you may be surprised with what you find.

Much Love and Blessings to You,

Let life be with you, not against you. If you think “My life will be upside down” don’t worry. How do you know down is not better than upside?
