We all have moments where someone tries to catch us off guard or embarrass us. Instead of jumping into anger go into the place where you find inner peace. Take a deep breath. This will give you a longer, more enjoyable life. Remember the best revenge is leading a good life.
Sometimes in life all of the dividends of decisions can add up to make an enormous whole. Overwhelmed and frustrated by the ever growing demand place upon us by our current world economy people are confronted with negative emotions. The teachings of many shamans can show that repression of angry, fear-driven or hurt emotions can only cause a permanent scar to wear on the metaphorical sleeve.
Look not to holding in these feelings. Let yourself express them. Let them wash through you and out like a wave. The further under the water you submerge your body, the less the friction of the currents will move you about.
Once they have past, you can look out onto new waters. Your perception makes up a greater toll of the how the world treats you than can be imagined.
I am a child of Earth and meditation. I recognize other cultures may share similar positive qualities as mine. One of those qualities being meditation, positive though or prayer. I am thankful that that my knowledge keeps expanding everyday.
Relax. Often people say that their thoughts overwhelm them too much when they’re trying to mediate. A simple exercise I use to prevent this is to let the thoughts come. Don’t stop them. Also don’t hold on to them. Allow them to flow through your mind like a running stream in and out and eventually there are no thoughts left to flow.
Sometimes I like to think of god or life as a flowing energy pattern. We control the harmony of this current through our thoughts and our emotions. Taking a deep breath and releasing all other ideas but something simple like strips of electric bands surging in and out of symmetry.
