“ ... All that You are is so overwhelming
I delight myself in You
Captivated by Your beauty
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by You
You are Beautiful, You are Beautiful ...
You are Wonderful, You are Wonderful ...
You are Glorious, You are Glorious ... “

Realization ... people live by creating stories about a lot of things that aren’t really happening. In our mind, you decide to create a story and in a brief instance, everything that could go wrong in your mind does. You’ve just created this fabulous story of woe and misery. And now your dealing with the stress that comes with it. But the catch is, it’s not reality ... yet.
It is wild to watch how the mind creates and how we begin to manifest the very thing we don’t want. Humans gravitate towards the what they don’t have so that they can procrastinate, bitch and complain ... and blame someone else.
Being overwhelmed is a feeling. When things seems bigger than they are to handle. There is some truth to that. Trying to “handle” it all. This is the time when our minds start to wreck havoc. They focus on everything all at once ... resulting in anxiety and stress.
How we move through life is by taking one moment at a time, one event at a time and slowly, very slowly ... we enjoy the journey.
Our minds can fully focus on one thing at a time. If we focus on the beautiful things around us we will thrive. If we start focusing on the negative things around us then we are going to suffer and feel overwhelmed.
Stories in our minds can make us suffer. Our minds tell us that we have got to find some solution, keep looking, keep searching. Through meditation we can begin to observe the thought that arises. Single focus exercise to bring us back to the present moment. Living now ... and perhaps giving space and time for the answers to arise.
... focusing on what needs to be done in the moment ...
I was told today that I have a very deep innate nature of negativity. As difficult as that was to hear, it is true. Being negative is easy. And I know that I am not alone in this area. You see, choosing happiness sounds great ... but not always accessible. Life goes very well and things can flow when you get out of the way.
Easier said than done, and, something to keep working on ...
