Right and wrong are merely self-created labels you use to navigate your way through reality. Even though nothing is intrinsically good or bad, your emotional and psychological experience depends upon the labels you choose. This is the ultimate control you have over your life. You lighten your load by consciously choosing labels that help you move through life with ease. What you now find bad or wrong won’t just magically go away, but reclassifying it definitely changes your experience. Life happens. How you spin it is…

Up to you.

Steve and Jarl  

Although surrender is considered to be a last resort on the battle field, it can actually be a very powerful tactic in your own life. When you know action is absolutely necessary but you’re at a total loss for what to do, letting go and allowing the Universe to take over can produce amazing results. There’s an intelligence that holds limitless possibilities and solutions beyond your wildest dreams, but you have to be willing to let go and allow it to show you what exists outside your own limited mental constructs. It can transform problems…

Into miracles.

Steve and Jarl

There’s no reason to cling to stories about yourself or others that don’t feel good. Every situation contains within it a seed for potential transformation. Rigid adherence to critical judgments and dissatisfaction about the way things are is a choice that keeps your experience exactly as it is now. In order to encourage things to move in the direction you want, you must be willing to permit that change to happen within your own mind. The easiest way for that to occur is to loosen the death grip…

On your own story.

Steve and Jarl 

Your take on reality is purely relative and not infallible. Since truth is so nuanced, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever get to a universally agreed upon version. Realizing this can help you loosen your grip on your opinions. Relaxing when others have different perspectives helps bring more harmony into your life. With a softened position you might even find that you resonate with their side of the issue…

More than you thought.

Steve and Jarl

Practically everything you do is designed to help you get attention. From the things you talk about to the skills and talents you develop, your expression is intended to make an impression. Recognizing the truth of this universal desire helps you to understand that one of the kindest things you can do is offer others the gift of your attention. Your focused awareness is deeply nurturing to them and works out well for you, too. Your rapt attention, draws theirs to you.

Everyone feels seen.

Steve and Jarl

Most of what you fear will never happen. You’ve probably lived through many hours of needless worry and anxiety stressing out about self-created terrors. To dramatically improve your experience of life right now, eliminate the obsessive habit of worrying about negative scenarios in the future. How do you do it? Put every bit of your attention on the moment you’re in. Fear originates in your mind. Quiet the boogie man by facing it head on. When you totally feel the fear without trying to distract yourself…

It slinks away.

Steve and Jarl

Approaching every situation with the fresh curiosity of a beginner will make you receptive to details you might otherwise miss. Maintaining a sense of newness keeps you engaged with an attitude of wonder. Because others appreciate your focused attention they’re more likely to share information and experiences with you that they otherwise wouldn’t. Relating to life with a beginner’s mind allows you to do something that’s impossible when you (think) you already know everything…

Learn.

Steve and Jarl

Growing isn’t easy. In fact, it often comes with pain. In order to expand your consciousness, you have to be willing to move beyond your comfort zone. Being too attached to comfort causes stagnation. Even though choices that lead to evolution sometimes feel frightening, they can create a sustainable well-being that takes you to an entirely new level. Next time you have a choice between comfort and expansion, commit to growth. Experience the fear of moving beyond what feels safe and…

Do it anyway.

Steve and Jarl

Your attention operates like a highly sophisticated internet search engine. Whatever key words (or ideas) you input into the search bar (focus your attention on) will deliver bountiful results. Your mind and the way you selectively direct your attention bring the requested information into your field of awareness. Just as Google’s output is based on your input, the Universe shows you exactly what you’re looking for…

Search with awareness.

Steve and Jarl

You can’t alter your experience of the world by changing other people. It won’t work. If you can’t tolerate them, move on. Don’t frustrate yourself by expecting them to transform into someone you want them to be. Even if they change under pressure, they’ll resent you for forcing the matter. If you’re in the habit of trying to change others to suit your preferences, realize that it doesn’t feel good to them and won’t be satisfying to you either. If you continue spending time with them, do everybody a favor and work on changing…

Yourself instead.

Steve and Jarl

 

 

 

It’s useful to search for wisdom in the yellowed pages of works by well-known sages. It helps to be informed about perennial truths that are as relevant today as they were hundreds of years ago. But there’s no substitute for wisdom you uncover for yourself. The depth of personal understanding that comes from experience is more relevant to your life than entire libraries filled with works by well-recognized philosophers. The wisdom you gain by contemplating how difficult experiences can serve and evolve you is the best kind. Don’t let those opportunities slip by.

Look for the gift.

Steve and Jarl

You can learn a lot about yourself by wearing a costume. When ‘in character’ you’re not invested in an identity so you’re unlikely to react defensively or feel hurt if others don’t respond as you hope. If you applied this detached flexibility to the rest of your life, you could sensitively gauge the impact of your performance and modify it without feeling bad. Your primary identity is only marginally more the truth of who you are than any character you might impersonate. Operating with that same attitude of detachment will make life feel…

A whole lot lighter.

Steve and Jarl

 

 

Change is an immutable law. It can bring relief when you’re suffering or pain when you least expect it. It responds to neither resistance nor impatience. It has it’s own timeline. The consciousness of every individual contributes to the overall condition of the planet. New realities appear the only way they can given the cast, crew and storyline that’s come before. If you consider the momentum of history that’s barreling forward to create each moment as it is, there’s only one sane response…

Acceptance. 

Steve and Jarl

No matter what’s going on in your life, your attitude determines your experience of it. Spending energy worrying about the future is a dead end. When you stay present, you don’t get sucked down the rabbit hole of imaginary negative outcomes. Trust that problems come with their own solutions and look for how every situation is for you. Life wants you to have what you want. Believing it does…

Helps you see it.

Steve and Jarl

When someone lies to you, remember that it has little to do with you. They’re primarily concerned with how you perceive them. Denying the truth or trying to impress you reflects their level of self-love and acceptance. Realize that what they really need is your compassion. Set boundaries if you need to, but by all means, don’t hurt yourself by…

Taking it personally.

Steve and Jarl

Engaging in resistant and negative thoughts can cause stress and affect your health. Fortunately, that’s under your control. When you reduce judgment, negativity and mental chatter you gain access to a whole new world. In a calm and centered state of mind, you see reality more clearly, experience greater balance on all levels and gain insight on how best to live your life. Since the quality of your experience depends so completely on your mental diet, seeking out what can dramatically improve it is a top priority…

Peace
