Firstly, 99.999% of the fundamental constituents (elementary particles and simple atoms) of everything that now comprises you, all those now currently complex and not so complex organic bio-molecules (proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, etc.), as well as the simpler inorganic molecules and atoms (like water, salt and oxygen say) were originally part and parcel of an immense gas and dust cloud that slowly, under gravity, contracted and contracted and ultimately became incorporated into the Sun and associated solar system we see today. That happened some 4.5 billion years ago. All the fundamental bits and pieces that now comprise you have been around doing their thing for all that time. Since all those carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, etc. atoms that now make you, you are 4.5 billion years old, and so in a way that makes you 4.5 billion years old. But wait, that vast interstellar dust and gas cloud that came together 4.5 billion years ago didn't just pop into existence then. They had an earlier history.

Every day, I witness people leading chaotic lifestyles, responding like robots to the negative circumstances of their lives, creating more dissonance and conflict. They seek solace in the next best thing, person or position they can find, but always end up frustrated and wondering why they are not truly happy. It is a conundrum of sorts. Sadly, it is self-perpetuating. Stress, negativity and unpleasant reactions to everyday situations only beget more of the same experiences on a deeper level. This, of course, creates undue stress on your body, mind and spirit.

This is the time of the year which we judge our previous year and make decisions about the next one. I guess we all want a fresh and powerful start to the next year. No matter how you spend 2010, everything can be different in 2011.

Letting the stress of unplanned or unwanted events influence the way you react to and view the world will always lead to turmoil. Living with a mind-set of negativity and fear will blind you to the miraculous flow of bliss, which is within and around you always.

Day 15

It is said:
"Sow a thought, reap an action,
Sow an action, reap a habit
Sow a habit, reap a character, Sow a character, reap a destiny."


Creation all starts with a thought linked to our most consistent emotions. Think about it, each time we notice our habitual emotional state, we discover that there are rituals connected to producing these emotional outcomes. Who knew? The upshot is that we then find that that the rituals that surround our behavior and emotions cause us to behave predictably.

 

Let's take a look at five negative emotions we probably are familiar with; frustration, anger, overwhelm, fear, disappointment as some fairly common emotions. Next, look at how you produce that emotion. What is the exact recipe you use to actually produce that emotion? Did you know that there IS a recipe?
