I tell you, truthfully, that if all of us self-help enthusiasts would put into practice all the beautiful, inspirational advice we see on Twitter, in books and blogs, we’d put therapists, psychologist, and a lot of medical doctors out of business. I believe it’s possible that we are beginning to outsmart most mental health professionals. And as we do that, our physical well-being increase and dis-ease decreases. The dilemma is that as much as we want to have sweeter and easier lives, we are afraid of change. And, as much as we know, we aren’t using our intelligence much at all. So we hire others who support us in these struggles and challenges. This is a good thing!
I have no doubt that all of us will get tired of the fear-based platform of our choosing to choose what we choose. Sooner or later each of us will take those incrementally small steps towards the life we say we want.
So, in service to this one small, incremental step towards fulfillment of our human spirit, I began practicing a very simple exercise. Maybe you’ll try it too. And, yes. It is easy. Well, most of it!
