How I Handle Hard Times How Do

you handle hard times The hard times are coming perhaps the hard times are here. Life is a pitiless marathon through misery, anguish despair, grief pain that radiator is making a weird noise. I mean it just goes on and on and on I’ve got a cold could it be covered we just don’t know I hope not I don’t seem to have a temperature there’s a pandemic going on. There’s a culture war that has some optimistic aspects, but seems to be further fracturing a broken society and then there’s your own personal life. What do you feel about that off-sited philosophical axiom that you know if you were told there was going to be an earthquake in China or any far away country.

Assuming Youre Somewhere In The West Like The

um you know that was going to kill 100 000. It would give you less consternation than if you were told that in the morning someone was going to cut off your little finger. You might not sleep a wink. If you were told. At 8 am, someone’s coming to cut off your little finger.

Meaning I Suppose That Were Bloody Selfish

when it comes to the crunch Now. I think that a lot of political division is predicated on whether you’re optimistic about human nature or pessimistic about human nature. I generally speaking please God. I’m optimistic about human nature human beings. If you dig deep enough are beautiful if you look beyond their trauma their pain.

The Bad Actions Mistakes That Weve

all made that beneath it. We are well intentioned and well-meaning this aside personal hard times and global hard times are upon us Increasingly it seems perhaps because we we’re able to communicate them now in a manner that has never been available to us before so. There is this sort of sense of growing perpetual motion impending doom on both of these scales both the global and the personal let’s see if we can look at some solutions to this all-encompassing sense of fear dread hardship that many people describe as their ordinary life here are some pretty basic principles. One gratitude. This is a trick of perception often when I am um in no I wouldn’t say depression because of the I suppose medical connotations of that word.

But If Im Feeling Sad Or Unhappy.

I try to bring my focus to the many things I have to be grateful for this is a trip trick of perception long practiced often writing gratitude lists. These are the things in my life are good. I’ve got these children. I’ve got this marriage.

  • pessimistic
  • hardship
  • misery
  • comfort
  • grief

Im Fortunate To Live In A Relatively

free way. I without financial construction. I recognize that comparatively I have a great deal to be grateful for but any of us watching this at least have access to a screen. You know and whatever ailments we may have we’re able to understand this information. I recognize there are gradients of privilege and I suppose from a spiritual perspective at least.

Im Saying Simply That Gratitude Is An

important principle. Another principle that is vital. I have been taught and remember anything. I say that seems remotely true is simply something. that I’ve remembered and passing on service service to others if say we take as the base point of this situation.

Oh Im Unhappy Im Miserable First

thing let’s take it as the first action. What can I be grateful for you could make a list second thing Who can I help is there anything I can do for someone else normally a glance at my phone reveals to me that this person’s asked for help that person’s asked for help. These people are in trouble or if I sit in silent reflection and meditation, which can be hard when you’re experiencing that paralysis of anxiety man I hate that when you’re a little bit frightened about something and your mind won’t rest when your belly’s alive when your heart feels hollow with an easy breath man that’s tough that time to meditate that’s when you might need to turn. to the support of an experienced spiritual person or if you don’t have access to that me? I would perhaps do a meditation on insight timer or on a comparable app or check out my muji on Youtube doing deep meditations because what the people, for example in the TM community believe and I’ve been taught by some great people. There is that the surface of the mind is about disturbance anxiety and fear but that within us in our deepest truest nature.

There Is Peace If You Can

drop beneath the wants and the fears do you sometimes find comfort in even the materialist and rational idea that we are living in limitless space that in this vastness in a vastness that defies context of either time or space, as we understand it that at least our problems are limited at least our problems are finite truly they will. Pass are you able to deploy that oft-used 12-step technique of keeping the problem in the day living your life one day at a time, not projecting into potential outcomes. Not fearing that you’re gonna lose what you have or that you won’t get what you want at least to live in the reality at the moment as you know I have the privilege of consultation with their I believe him to be a great man a great soul Eckhart toll he said once to me you cannot be happy in the conceptual mind. If you’re living in the conceptual mind the mind of comparison projection recollection you will never be happy. You can only be happy if you are willing to truly experience the aliveness of the exact moment you’re in go into the liveness of the exact moment you’re in for me that means being in the studio.

Whos Doing The Production As Best

she can which I’ll be grateful for sure Jenny’s not great but I’ll be grateful that she’s even here at all at a safe two meter distance is that sufficient two meter distance. I’m pretty sure it’s a common call, but who even wants that who even wants a common cold are probably wrong no well. I mean if you’re choosing a does it where did you want a common one do you want a contemporary one who’s the same so look at some of the things we’ve discussed keep it in the day be grateful be cert of service to other people. It’s important more globa. I don’t mean globally but I mean across your life holistically to have the support of a group of people that’s.

Why Belonging To Synagogue Church, Temple Or Mosque

can be helpful you know even if you. Don’t want to get involved in the metaphysical ideas about you know God creation or the dogma attached to some of those theological ideals being a member of a community can be a valuable thing. It doesn’t have to be a religious one. It could be some people that are they’re down with at your local bar that could be built around a particular sexual persuasion or it could be a community built around a sport or activity. But in this time of isolation, there’s definitely been an exacerbation of that fear anxiety and the creaking like I’ve been having difficult conversations with people like an uneasiness of interaction because I’m kind of out of practice and I slide easy into hermitude anyway.

Like Many Of Us That Are Not

experiencing medical or economic hardship. Much of the pandemic has been enjoyable for me because it removed the need for. Interaction and relationship which brings about a great deal of my own personal anxiety Is one of those people that misdiagnosed myself as an extrovert when in fact, I’m an introvert far more happy talking into the lone shark lens eye of a camera than being at an ordinary interaction of 10 or 12 people, but now that we’re sort of somewhat back yeah it’s been tricky to be around people rubbing people up the wrong way having little altercations here and there a safe respectful distance of two meters long distance. All occasions everywhere not able to belong to the BJJ community that I’m a member of unable to attend 12-step support groups in the same way lots and lots of challenges. These Are indeed hard times and life cannot be bliss? Can it can’t be ever blissful unless you have sort of reached enlightenment unless you’re able by which I mean able to maintain access to a point of consciousness that is transcendent of material reality and keep it while interacting in the world.

Like Christ Said Im In The World

but not of it. If you can be among people have chats hang out get a tax bill get scared by someone have your heart broken and still maintain that connection recognize all physical interaction merely of permutations of a higher ideal recognizable reality comes from one unified field permutations a concierge all using the same notes, but in different orders hopefully the right order. You know if you can maintain some kind of connection with one pure vibration. The timeless soundless silent oneness from which all phenomena must surely come. Then there’s a chance of freedom, but if you’re anything like me hard times come and hard times stick because you’ve been deeply indoctrinated into all sorts of systems of happiness that require other people’s approval, for example, or a certain amount of economic comfort or material comfort man it’s difficult if you’ve been hypnotized.

Im Not Saying That The World Is

solely a bad place filled with hierarchies and systems of dominance and corruption, but there’s much of that in the world. The hard times in my life often come as a result of lack of acceptance. So here’s a fur principle acceptance. This again is derived from spiritual ideas that everything in the world. However, objectionable it may seem to you is exactly as it is supposed to be in that moment, and we can only see a fragment of the picture we glance at but one aspect.

Of The Complex Geometry Of Reality,

even things that make us despair or have hidden in them some meaning some lesson if seen across the whole expanse of being so for example, if something happens I don’t like and that happens a lot to me. Now I accept it okay. This has happened. I surrender to it. I’m grateful for what I’ve got.

I Maintain The Support Of A Community.

I think of how I can be of service. I look at what I can change about myself what is this showing me. Oh. This is showing me that I’m too easily irritated well.

This Is Showing Me That I Require

too much comfort. This is showing me that I have a lot of pride and ego and a tendency to self–pity. There are lessons in life. I suppose if we have the approach to our existence that we want. Somehow enshrined you know protected continually protected layer after layer of edifice and artifice that’s a lot of baggage to carry around.

I Think The Process Of Our

unfolding would be one of letting go. I no longer need this I no longer need that I’m becoming more and more free with each moment It don’t take a lot for me to feel afraid but thankfully too and this is again from a teacher of mine. I recover quicker as he says it don’t matter that we get out of breath, but it’s just how quickly we get our breath back, which is true.

Summary

Life is a pitiless marathon through misery, anguish despair, grief pain that radiator is making a weird noise. How I handle hard times? How do you handle hard . Times are coming perhaps the hard times are here. Hard times are upon us Increasingly it seems perhaps because we we’re able to communicate them now in a manner that has never been available to us before so.
