Can You Stand Up To Your Own Standards

As I’ve mentioned many times before, I get a lot of email from folks around the world. I love getting email. Especially from far off exotic places. I love answering questions and hearing about the experiences of others as they traverse their own paths through life and spiritual exploration.

It’s a double edge sword being a writer and teacher of a spiritual path that has centuries of demonstrative propaganda to stand up to. There are wonderful moments of enlightenment, excitement when someone shares their “Ah-ha” moments, and the inner peace you feel when others thank you for helping them find their own truth within themselves. It’s a calling I’m proud to take and honored to share.

But from time to time there are nasty eMails that condemn my writing, call me names and are in general monstrous accusations of sin, guilt, damnation and so on.

Anyone however, can receive an email like this. How you view those emails might say a lot about you and your own spiritual thoughts and perspectives. It can be a litmus test for how far you’ve come on your path, where you are today and maybe even shed some light on where you need to go moving forward.

You’ll not only turn your day around; you will also make a big difference in how things work out for the better, tomorrow and even for next month.

Additional Insight:

If you simply sit back and allow yourself to feel overwhelmed, that’s exactly what you will create for the day and remainder of the week. Don’t let the weather, stress, or someone else with a bad attitude pull you down into the weeds of despair and groveling emotions. There is a way out.

You know exactly what you must do today and what must get done to keep things moving forward. Make the calls, do the paperwork and keep your nose to the grind stone. If you have to close the door and focus on your tasks regardless of what’s going on outside, then do so. The more you get done, the more you’ll feel better about what you’ve achieved today and that will turn your whole day around.

You don’t have to solve all the worlds problems. You don’t even have to solve the problems of others. You do have to work on your own challenges. Don’t tackle them all at once. Pick the smallest one and start there. One at a time, little by little you’ll take care of what needs to be addressed today and for the week. Continue reading
