One of the most sneaky, sad, depressing ways
my thinking has messed with my peace and freedom
is with this simple but powerful thought “I CAN’T DO THAT”.
It comes right after a really fantastic idea.
It comes right after a really frightening idea.
It comes right after I get a vision of something in the
future that might be possible, and it feels big and juicy
and like a wild dream.
The mind is such a pessimist! Here are some of the reasons
my thinking comes up with WHY I can’t do something:
–he will be very sad
–she won’t approve of me
–they will think I’m greedy
–people will get outrageously mad at me
–people will find me disgusting and uncool
–I’ll screw it up and regret I tried to do it
All very, very stressful beliefs, and all full of a good punch
that often results in “DON’T EVEN TRY IT”.
But what if you could do that. What if you knew you
really, really, really wanted to do it, you were drawn
to do it, something in you was saying “Go! Now!” or
you keep coming back to the idea over and over again.
Even if it’s just a little whiff of an idea, a soft breeze passing,
a tiny hint of a suggestion…”I CAN do that”. Why not see if it’s
just as true, or truer, that you can.
It’s not really that I can’t do something, most of the time.
I try, and I do it or I don’t do it…it may not even matter.
Come see what it’s like to live the turnarounds of these stressful
beliefs, share with others who may have had the same painful
beliefs, and question them using The Work together.
We have only one spot left for this weekend retreat on food, eating
and the body. And the teleclass with the same topic starts next
I would love to have you join me on the journey to the freedom of
seeing if you can do it, without terrible stress and panic.
