Acceptance of the Unacceptable

What to do if you are in a state of anxiety or fear all the time? Not to allow the fear to rise up into your mind and control your thought processes. That would be a normal thing when you are identified with fear – the emotion that is there rises into your mind and causes you to think thoughts that correspond to the emotion: fearful thoughts in this case. And you would get a vicious circle building up between the emotional fear and the thoughts you think  – which are fearful thoughts -which give more energy to the emotion. So the more fearful thoughts you think the more it perpetuates the fear that you feel. So to sever the link between the emotion that you feel and your thought processes (a

Politically thunk

There is a certain feel to oppositional thinking and emotion: an adrenaline rush that inspires righteous stances, rage, hatred, or the desire to flee the involvement, the country, our body, or life itself. It’s a tightness we inadvertently mistake as pride or part of our identity. It locks us into half the potential of life until we suddenly see how the “other side” contains an underlying similarity or commonality, but expresses it in a different way. Then a huge world reopens to us. -Penney Pierce #communication #effectivecommunication #politics

It's all in the Release

Don’t rush and don’t over-clench, slightly change position to find “home.” Be intentional and pure of purpose. Stay aware of your breath and feel how all comes from your center. When you let go, let it all go cleanly and without regret. Are these the words of a tantra instructor or yoga teacher? They could be, but they’re also instructions on how to draw, hold and then release an arrow from a bow. I was reflecting on my love of archery today. It occurred to me that their is so much development involved in the micro-skills and focused attention to each point of action. First, there is choosing or fashioning the equipment (which I have often made myself.) Secondly, the archer must pay attentio

The Secret to Stress-Free Living

Stress is wanting something to be the way that it isn’t. The basis for effective action in a stressful situation is to come into an inner alignment with the ‘is-ness’ of this moment. “Im stuck in the mud” “Why is this always happening to me?” are situations where you start by looking at your situation without labelling it. Then, a greater intelligence arises because you become present with what is.

How to Get a Dog to Trust You

Puppy blocking its ears and looking up We’ve probably all had the experience of asking whether we could pet someone’s dog only to have the dog completely ignore us or try to run away, and it’s not uncommon for adult rescue dogs to be a little aloof at first. It’s easy to take this personally and think that the dog doesn’t like us, but that’s because we’re looking at it from a human perspective. When two human strangers meet, our rules say that we introduce ourselves and shake hands. Dogs don’t have that rule with other dogs or with humans. Dog socialization is different from human socialization. Think of the way that a lot people approach a dog for the first time. They talk to the dog, possi
