Our packrat brains

Share this:

Our Packrat Brains Imagine a packrat’s room stacked full of old newspapers, boxes, and junk. The room isn’t useable because there’s so much unneeded and not useful stuff. And it certainly isn’t comfortable to be in that room. But if we start emptying that room, with every load of trash we carry out, the room […]

Straw that broke the camel’s back

Share this:

Straw that Broke the Camel’s Back The best way to prevent a single straw from breaking the camel’s back is to lighten the load far before the camel’s breaking point. Another analogy along the same lines – if my cup is full to the brim, one more drop will cause overflow. But if I’ve emptied […]

The confusion about forgiveness

Share this:

The Confusion About Forgiveness Forgiveness is a huge thing for our peace of mind, our quality of life, our happiness, and our capacity to be blessed. However, people often have a hard time forgiving. This is because of a fundamental misunderstanding about what it means to forgive. Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves not […]

Hard Choices

Share this:

Hard choices We frequently mistakenly think that situations and circumstances determine our responses. “That thing happened so therefore, I must be angry, or hurt, or upset.” But, there are no mandatory responses. We can always choose something different, something that is more in alignment with who we want to be and how we want to […]

Business lessons from a surfer

Share this:

Business lessons from a surfer  Imagine a surfer who got profoundly disappointed when the wave ended. He or she wouldn’t last very long as a surfer because that’s what waves do – they exist for a little while and then they end. What the surfer does is ride that wave for as long as he […]

That’s not my project

Share this:

That’s not my project  It is impossible for us to be responsible for anyone’s mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being because we are not in control of their brain. But, we often try to be responsible. And when we do, we inevitably end up suffering. My mom is having challenges in all these areas as […]

Leaving the past in the past  

Share this:

Leaving the past in the past  We so often think that in order to change and for things to be different, we need to make up for the past. Yes, the past has got us to where we are today. But, the future is created in the now. For example, let’s say I want to […]

Bigger than our problems

Share this:

Bigger than our problems  There’s an old saying about being bigger than our problems. What would happen if we took this literally? Think about one of your big problems. This could be with a person or a situation. Now notice that from your mind’s eye perspective, that person or that situation is bigger than you […]

Take the upgrade (version 2)

Share this:

Take the upgrade (version 2)   Imagine that you are an army general and your troops win a big battle. Of course, there was a huge cost to this.  Then imagine abandoning that newly won territory and then having the same battle again a week later to reclaim that territory. That would be really bad strategy. […]

Allowing vs efforting

Share this:

Allowing vs efforting  Which of these two statements resonates more with you? 1)    If it is to be it is up to me. 2)    Miracles happen here. Much of our head trash puts us in the position of thinking that we need to make the sun rise (okay that might be a bit of an exaggeration). But […]
