today

i would like to propose to you a way of

living

that if you truly live this way not only

will it improve your life

almost instantly but it will improve the

lives of

everyone you come into contact with

it's not the magic pill but it will

bring a

feeling of magic into your life if you

live by it

it's not a winning lottery ticket but if

you

live by these principles you won't need

a winning lottery ticket

or any amount of money because how you

feel will be the reward and no amount of

money

can buy a beautiful existence


no amount of money can buy a

feeling of contentment no amount of

money

can buy peace or joy

what is this way of living it's called

non-jar n-o-n-j-a-r

living in a state of complete

non-judgment non-attachment

and non-resist to whatever shows up in

your life

let's dive deeper into these principles

if you give me your attention for the

next few minutes

i promise it will be a game changer for

you

non-judgment how often do we

human beings judge every situation and

circumstance that comes into our lives

as good or bad how often have we all

judged situations and circumstances

we perceived as bad at the time but

really

they led to something that ultimately

changed our lives for the better

maybe it was a breakup that was

devastating at the time

but when looking back seems like the

biggest blessing

maybe it was a job loss or a difficult

time financially

that we labeled and judged as bad at the

time

but if it did not happen we would not be

in the great position we are in now or

doing

what we now love think of an example in

your life where you have judged a

situation or circumstance negatively

but it turned out to be a blessing in

some way

think of a time when you've judged a

person in some way and looking back

you were wrong to do so the truth is

we do not know anything we can judge

and label situations all we like

but we do not know anything

we can't possibly know the greater

lesson or

future blessing any situation has

for our life in the moment it happens

when we step back especially in

difficult situations



and observe rather than judge

we can respond better with more love for

others with more love for the situation

and most importantly with more love

for ourselves when we respond

in presence rather than in judgment

we can respond better and the flow on

effect

will mean a better life a life with more

ease and joy

non-attachment it has been said

that attachment is the source of all

suffering

every human being is guilty of this at

some point

but perhaps more so the ambitious ones

or

the achievers among us it's those

situations in which

we are so attached to the outcome that

we

identify with it and if the outcome

doesn't work out as planned we get upset

depressed or maybe feel a loss of our

sense of self

you might have experienced this feeling

when being attached to a person

in a relationship or being attached to a

certain financial position being

attached to how you are perceived by

others

being attached to a result you've been

working towards

non-attachment doesn't mean we don't own

things it means we don't allow

things to own us we don't allow

thoughts and emotions and ideals

to own us non-attachment

is being able to live and thrive in this

world

without being attached to any person any

thought

feeling emotion or any outcome

in any way not being attached to

anything being any certain way

that means being non-attached to any

emotion that

shows up as well so many of us beat

ourselves up for getting angry

upset sad down or

simply not at our best as if the first

emotion wasn't bad enough

we punish ourselves for feeling it

living in non-attachment we allow the

emotion to take place

be witness to it and watch it dissolve

we witness the emotion not judge it

just like non-judgment living in

non-attachment

means living with complete freedom and

detachment

to what happens whatever circumstances

arrive

you accept them as if you had chosen

them

accepting them does not mean you give up

seeking the things you want

it means whatever happens you accept

while you continue to work toward the

things you really want

with presence and clarity

when you live in non-attachment many of

those things you

thought you wanted fade away because you

realize their

insignificance and that only

leaves what is really

important being attached to

anything being a certain way drains you

of your power

a zen proverb that beautifully sums this

up says

consider the trees which allow the birds

to perch

and fly away without either inviting

them to stay

or desiring them never to depart

if your heart can be like this

you will be near to the way

non-resistance

eckhart tolle says non-resistance

doesn't mean

doing nothing all it means is that doing

becomes non-reactive he says

remember the deep wisdom underlying the

practice

of eastern martial arts don't

resist the opponent's force yield

to overcome much like non-judgment

and non-attachment living in a state of

non-resistance

means you do not resist what happens

you no longer fight what is

what could be more draining of life

energy

than fighting what is there is nothing

it is why what you resist persists

fighting against creates more energy

for the thing you are fighting against

letting go accepting and importantly

stepping back and being aware of what is

actually happening gives you power

reacting not in anger or resistance

with focus and presence gives you

power to change any situation

when we truly live by these principles

our life and our world around us

instantly becomes clearer




with a greater sense of peace and

understanding

everything becomes lighter and our

reactions

become clearer it affects

not only our life and our immediate

surroundings

but the entire planet because what could

be more powerful

than one person living in a beautiful

state

that person's effect on others and the

consequent compound effect

those people will have on more people

it is profound what a world we can live

in

if we dedicate our lives in this way

i pray you all give it a try in full

presence

with pure intentions many blessings


you
