How Do You View the Universe?

The Now 1

Do you see the universe as full of abundance, beneficent, good to you?

Or do you see the universe as lacking, mean and not caring about you?

However you see the universe is how you are creating your own life.

Those thoughts that you think every moment are becoming what you will experience in the next moment, and the next, and the next.

This means don’t multi task.

Pay attention to what you are doing.

Live your life with intention.

Stay present, which means being In the Now.

Overcoming Fear: Setting Aside What We Dislike

Strawberry ice creat

In some sense, every fear we have is simply a dislike of ours. If we just dislike strawberry ice cream, that seems innocent enough.  We aren’t afraid that someone will make us eat strawberry ice cream ( at least I hope not).

But if we have a fear of losing our home, it’s basically this question: Would you like to lose your home? No. That’s a “dislike”.

Would you like to become ill? No. That’s a dislike.

And so to me, all of our fears at their core are merely dislikes of ours. It’s that simple.

So in one sense, there’s no difference between strawberry ice cream that you dislike, and financial ruin, or divorce, or the death of a loved one. All of the things that we call tragedies, they’re simply dislikes of our personalities.

Fear is felt by us when we anticipate something happening that we might find unpleasant, because we dislike it.

If we see our fears in this way as merely dislikes, then we can overcome them–just like that fearsome strawberry ice cream!
