Continuing with the cleanup theme, we’ve discussed toxins and diet, now let’s move up to your mind and thoughts.
Please remember that it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to clean up your thinking when your mind is clouded with toxins and poor nutrition. Once you’ve made some headway in the body clean up you can start to clean your thinking.
Let me ask you to consider: if you had a friend that was constantly lying to you, constantly telling you you’re not good enough, constantly making you feel like the worst is going to happen, constantly causing you worry and stress... would you spend a lot of time with this so-called friend?
When was the last time your own self-talk told you absolute truth regardless of appearances, told you the best is going to happen, constantly reassuring you that there’s no need to worry or stress about life situations?
When was the last time this happened?
Then why do you listen? Why do you believe this self-talk? Maybe it’s time for a new friend.
We’re certainly not advocating a Polyana approach to life—not at all. What we’re advocating is a realistic approach to life.
How many times have you worried about something that never happened?
“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened” ~ Mark Twain
You can’t worry enough to fix anything.
You see what the alchemist calls “an adept” is not someone who has extraordinary powers. An adept is someone with an extraordinary point of view.
In the Course in Miracles there’s an exercise it encourages you to practice for a full day. To look at everything that comes into your experience and to tell yourself, “I have no idea what that means.”
Nothing has any meaning whatsoever in life besides the meaning we give to it.
Everything is meaningless until we attach meaning to it. How many times have you been wrong?
Again, we’re not advocating looking at the world through rose-colored glasses—not at all. The Adept, if we can continue with that term, sees things clearly. Not worse than they are, not better than they are... just exactly as they are.
We challenge you to change your perception and point of view this week. Maybe you should commit to the exercise from CIM. Just tell yourself no matter what comes your way for a full day: “I have no idea what that means.”
