The ego/old self trick that everyone commonly falls for is the trick of “waiting”. Waiting to feel better, waiting for people or circumstances to change, waiting for yourself to change… hello! It’s you! Who are you waiting on?
When it’s not feeling right it’s because you conjured up a state/feeling and you’re now pretending that this came to you from the outside and you have to wait for it to pass… waiting for a better day or better moment. This is a game you’re playing with yourself but it’s the cause of all of your dissatisfaction.
When dissatisfaction is there, when an uncomfortable feeling is there, when lack or frustration is there… FEEL it without judgement or resistance and remember that it is only there because YOU summoned it, there is no second power pushing it on you. You can change your mind and it can dissolve in an instant, but if not then Just watch it as if you are watching a snowflake in the sun. It will dissolve in seconds or minutes in most cases. And now what?
Now you just demonstrated to yourself that you don’t have to get stuck in waiting mode – you can actively dissolve afflictive emotion or states through non-resistance and remembering the truth. Likewise you can summon the exact states you want. It’s not difficult, a single word like “success” or “love” can do the trick if you enter into it feelingly.
Great success story to illustrate the immediacy of this path!
