Truths without exceptions are rare. Clients and colleagues are often amazed by my unflappability. This got me wondering, what is it about how I handle disappointing news that others find remarkable? One biggie is I just don’t worry.
Also, in poker and life I always handle my bad beats well. A bad beat in poker is one where the odds are in your favor and you still lose.
Here are the three absolute truths without exceptions:
1. All conditions are temporary.
2. Solutions are more fitting when found within.
3. Solutions are sooner found without resistance.
Let’s take a deeper dive into each one.
All conditions are temporary.
You’ve heard this wisdom before. This too shall pass.
All situations both delightful and challenging are fleeting in nature.
Only too things extend an experience.
1. Gratitude helps you savor an enjoyable experience longer.
2. Resistance keeps you fighting and struggling with a challenge longer.
Allowance grounds your being in a field of energetic neutrality. Thus, it’s best to allow disturbing situations to pass through and on their way just like summer storms.
Solutions are more fitting when found within.
This means to keep your own counsel. Don’t search the Internet seeking the solution to your issues. The only answers you’ll find are those that have worked for others.
There is no one right way. There is only the way that will work especially for you.
Also, do not over-analyze and seek answers from your own mind. The only advice your mind can offer is advice based on your own previous experience.
So, if you’ve had a fulfilling past in a specific area of inquiry your mind can help. But if you’d rather not repeat your past you need Universal connection with Source from deep within your own individual filter.
Solutions are sooner found without resistance.
Resistance is the opposite of allowance. Resistance is fighting what is. Fighting can take many forms among them are: complaining, avoiding, arguing, over-thinking, judging, attacking, cursing, name-calling and sarcasm.
What we resist persists. The key to living a resistance free life is to at a glance acknowledge each of these three truths.
The next time something or someone gets your gander up instead of reacting just acknowledge with sincerity these words.
“Okay I’m temporarily experiencing this situation that I’d rather release. What else is possible here that I haven’t yet seen?”
