EP32: Commitment (Part 2)

We explore the deeper side of commitment and how we can hang on to it as long as we remember it’s all our decision. We’re one decision away from committing…or ending a commitment. Why do we commit in the first place? And how can we benefit most from commitment? One idea is to use commitment as your opportunity to gauge your daily walk in love, compassion, gratitude, forgiveness. It can also be your gauge as to whether you falling into victim mindset, expecting the other person to make you happy. Continue reading “EP32: Commitment (Part 2)”

EP31: Commitment (Part 1)

When there’s no reason to attach to people or things, what would be the reason to commit? What’s behind our inclination to commit to anything or anyone? The dictionary defines commitment as, “the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.; or an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.” So with that, what are some commitments we get involved in? There’s romantic commitment, attachment commitment, relationship commitment, professional commitment, monetary commitments…

Commitment means different things to different people–but the motive behind it remains universal. Continue reading “EP31: Commitment (Part 1)”

EP30: Detached Attachment

When it comes to love, there is no attachment. Love doesn’t mean to hold someone in your care, under your responsibility, as your possession. Might sound cold-hearted, but when you don’t “care” about what happens to your loved one, that’s love. When your ability to enjoy and hold compassion for this person doesn’t wane with worry and isn’t contingent on good behavior, you’re free to love. We innocently form attachments with those we love because as long as they’re there, we’ll be ok…we’ll be happy…we’ll be fine. But what about detaching yourself from that attachment, and being ok, happy, fine now. Regardless of what happens, you can be happy now. And it starts with detached attachment.

EP26: Body Clutter

Everywhere you look, you can see manifestations of body clutter. Even when you look at yourself. There is obesity, anorexia, alcoholism, drug abuse, depression, self-mutilation, and so much more that is the result of body clutter. Is it safe to say there’s something about your inner functioning or outer appearance that you wish you could change?

Our bodies were meant to equip us to live our best life in this human form on this human plane. What are we doing to do our part to make that happen–to nurture our bodies to help our progress along? What blockages do we face in seeking to clear away body clutter? What keeps us eating artery-clogging foods, or sitting on the couch instead of getting out into the sunshine? Continue reading “EP26: Body Clutter”

EP25: Perception Is Reality

Perception is reality. Our world is what we make it out to be; what we tell ourselves it is. Just by thinking we see, hear, smell, taste, or touch a thing helps create this reality we live in. So our experience is our reality. And what creates the experience? Thought. That’s all. Just our thoughts, or perspective, about the experience itself. Our thoughts create our experience, and therefore our reality. So we’re only ever a thought away from a new reality…a new perspective. Continue reading “EP25: Perception Is Reality”

EP14: Forgiveness

Forgiveness is to stop feeling resentment toward someone for not meeting your expectations. I like to say it’s to let someone off the hook for the way we feel–since what we feel is only a result of our interpretation of what we think happened. We all make mistakes; we do the best we can with who we are and what we know at this time. True forgiveness is present when compassion isn’t clouded by resentment. There’s personal power in forgiveness because when you forgive someone you demonstrate grace and love. This episode lets you in on a little secret about forgiveness and why it holds the key to freedom for your heart. Continue reading “EP14: Forgiveness”
