Do you ever experience negative emotions to the extent that you wish they would just go away forever?
We all do, and most people suffer unnecessarily because of them.
The good news is that you don’t have to do that. The bad news is that most people will do it anyway, even though the tools are right in front of their eyes.
Because of familiarity.
It’s uncomfortable to face the unknown, even though that is where all the possibilities lie. You cannot have certainty and possibility.
You must face your emotions head on.
That is the key to peace. When you are willing to do that, you have reclaimed your freedom.
You’re probably familiar with the Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle. In the book, Eckhart puts forth a simple proposition, stay in the now and you will feel peace.
Most people don’t understand it right away, but when they do, their life changes dramatically, because when you’re in the now, you are present with everything around you.
Think of a time when you were anxious or afraid of a future event, and notice what happened when that event happened and you experienced it.
It wasn’t as bad as you thought it was, was it?
That’s because when you experienced it, you were in the now, and when that happened, the unknown became known.
