Is it time to end your suffering?

I’ve been listening to a bit of Tara Brach lately and she has a great video about how to stop the war against ourselves. She speaks about how when we’re suffering, it’s because we’re holding on too tight and need to let go. If you let go a little you’ll find a little peace. If you let go a lot, you’ll find a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you’ll be able to live your life fully. This…

We suffer more in our imagination than we do in reality

Ain’t that the truth. We spend so much of our lives ruminating on past hurts or perceived failures, or worrying about the future. Our brain literally doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination. Try this little exercise right now. Imagine taking a slice of lemon and biting into it. What happened in your mouth? Did your saliva increase? Did your cheeks tighten like there was a sour taste there? Our body actually has physiological reactions to whatever our brain…

You won’t be punished for your anger, but by it – Buddha

Are you holding on to anger and resentment from the past? Do you lose your rag at the smallest of things, usually aimed at the person that the anger isn’t even really about? When we collect a bunch of memories about stuff that’s happened to us in the past that led to hurt, betrayal, resentment and anger, this crappy energy gets stuck as trauma in our physical body and our energy field, and if not released in an appropriate way,…
