I wrote about the fantastic book Awareness
. I’m still fascinated by the ideas presented there by Anthony De Mello.
Here’s another highlight I found in this book.
Put this program into action, a thousand times: (a) identify the negative feelings in you; (b) understand that they are in you, not in the world, not in external reality; © do not see them as an essential part of “I”; these things come and go; (d) understand that when you change, everything changes.
So instead of identifying with your emotions by saying “I am sad”, “I am depressed” - rather describe emotions as things that come and go - “There’s now a feeling of sadness in me”, “I now feel depressed”. Do not label yourself with negative emotions. Don’t make your brain think these emotions are part of who you are.
Have a fantastic positive week
