Power On, Pressure Off


Emotional and mental pressures can feel like an internal pressure cooker which is about to explode.

Just like ingredients within a pressure cooker, in our minds and hearts we hold the ingredients of our past, the desires and expectations of the future, and the fears and challenges of not being able to achieve. Then when the heat of external situations intensifies, the pressure builds up inside.

To release the pressure inside the cooker it is necessary to cool it down before opening the lid. And if we keep the lid open, then the pressure will never be able to build up.

Keeping the lids of our minds and hearts open requires the power of courage. Courage means to allow new things to be ‘thrown into the pot’, or to accept what is being ‘cooked’ even though it may not be of our choosing.

Have the power to face the challenge of an ever changing world without creating a pressure situation. If it means I don’t have the last word in situations, then that is fine. If I don’t get what I want, then so be it. Have the courage to accept ‘defeat’ as within that defeat your chosen attitude reveals an inner strength and a more valuable victory.

It takes power to allow one’s inner self to win, even though on the outside you may appear to lose.

Om Shanti
