Tolerance is Power

tolerance

Life continuously presents us with a variety of situations.

Tolerance is an internal process of adjusting and adapting the self to the things that come to challenge us each day.

Tolerance brings flexibility and the ability to remain internally stable and secure. It is not about suppressing, enduring or resisting reaction, but about allowing the self to let go of the need to be in control, mentally and physically.

Learning to take support from the self, by using my internal resources in this way, allows the power of spirituality to grow. This in turn develops my ability to face whatever life throws at me.

In the face of challenge, where do I take my support from? Do I go within or do I still rely on a variety of external supports?

Om Shanti

The Anger Habit

anger_habit

As we go through life we develop belief systems regarding what is right and what is wrong. We create an image of how things should be or someone should behave.
When the outer reality is different from that internal belief, and there is no flexibility within to adjust to that, then an emotional disturbance happens within. The first sign is discomfort, quickly followed by irritation which in turn stimulates anger.

Understanding why there is a lack of flexibility within is vital in getting to the root of anger. When our comfort zones are challenged, subtly, fear develops which makes us defensive and inflexible.

Loosen the belt of the comfort zones, and allow yourself to adjust to situations and people, instead of being challenged by them.

Take this short cut to beat the anger habit.

An Incredible Journey

Just imagine that you are about to embark on a very long journey. You may experience many challenges along the way, but the journey has to be made.

You are given only a very small bag to carry with you. You may take with you whatever you like, as long as it will fit in the bag.

So what will you take? What situations will you face along the way for which you will need to be prepared?

Firstly, take with you ‘flexibility’, as this will allow you to adjust and accept whatever comes along the way.

Next take ‘renunciation’ as this will make the journey comfortable and light. No ‘needs’ or ‘wants’ to weigh you down.

Essential are ‘courage’ and ‘determination’ to reach the destination, whatever may come, good or bad.

Finally take ‘awareness’ of being the traveller, a guest who never gets stuck in any place for long, but continues to travel.

This is your journey. What you take with you is your choice. Understand the value of each item you choose to carry; choose wisely.

 

Om Shanti
