My mind is officially blown. Seriously. I thought I understood the concept of the thought “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Nope. Never really got it at all.
Crazy just crazy. My thoughts today kept going to ….. “Be the observer, Sharon—observe to see the change”. The whole thought that just changing my position from an active participant —from one who is always voicing opinions, saying how things should be this way or that way, constantly questioning why things go one way for one person and a completely different way for someone who seems to be doing all the same things—to someone who can calmly be an observer, well — it has been a struggle.
i thought all these months I was finally “getting it”…finally seeing that it is my attitude about things that is making my life more difficult than it needs to be. I thought it was the fact that I just need to laugh more, find joy, be happy and content with exactly where I am in life—-that would be the secret. And in some ways, I realize that is true. Joy, gratitude and laughter are very important things and extremely vital in living an abundant life.
But wow, this week realizing that it is the very act of observing that changes things. The little video that showed this just blew me away. Today I have determined that will be the thing I will focus on for the majority of my “sits” in the next few days. I want to absorb this concept because it is so unreal to me, but so fascinating, that I am afraid it will slip away from me if I do not spend some concentrated, focused time contemplating it.
Amazing. Just amazing. Incredible. And oh so exciting 🙂
