For whatever we want or need to do, the natural, human potential is profoundly adequate…minus our own interference.
Ever self-sabotaged your potential by being too anxious, too controlling, too distracted, too uncomfortable, too afraid, or too self-centered?
The only way out of the trap is to possess a quiet, focused mind.
It isn’t…if a few minutes everyday are invested in learning the skill.
Start with this simple awareness exercise:
- Sit still
- Notice your breath
- Say “Just” as you breathe in
- Say “This” as you breathe out
- Repeat until your focus is just this
- Repeat every time your mind runs ahead
In my own experience, having a time of quiet surrender (of ego, agenda, worry, control) everyday has made all the difference.
