⭐⭐⭐”Once you realize the true evolution of your mental problems, you’ll never blame any other living being for how you feel.” ⭐⭐⭐
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Only you – yes only YOU can change your thoughts and is responsible of how you feel. People/ situations may trigger those thoughts, but never create them.
You can choose how you react to your thoughts/emotions. Not easy – yet possible.
How can you do that?
Here are some easy steps that can help:
First relax, detach, centre yourself again and focus.
Relax – notice the thought/ emotion that are there. Breathe and relax and see the thought as a cloud in the big blue, vast sky of your mind. Clouds come and go. The blue, vast sky is always there
Detach – detach yourself from the thought/emotion -imagine the cloud has disappeared fully
Centre – bring your awareness in your body at the navel area
Focus – how would you like to feel instead now? Name the word mentally that expresses that feeling. Breathe it in and breathe out the thought/emotion you do not want to have. Notice the shift of how you feel
