A Metaphysical Exchange: Part 3
Many people have never heard that the heart’s magnetic field is 5000 times stronger than the magnetic field emitted by the brain. When I read this, I heard “Emotion is your feelings in motion” the very same day. To tell yourself “it must be now” is a good way to motivate yourself and others. But, to feel it in your heart is 5000 times more likelu to motivate you and the people around you.
There is infinite power in NOW. When you remind yourself that you are “effortless,” you set a mark to begin knowing yourself. We all know who we are, but do we know how much energy it takes to be YOU? You are in this moment. You are you NOW. You are You Effortlessly.
From the baseline of YOU NOW, you may begin to make decisions and create the best version of yourself. It doesn’t require any effort to be you or to be present in this moment. You are here, so Relax and listen to yourself BE YOU. Listen to your breath, listen to your thoughts. These will be two parts of yourself that you will must learn to control first.
Realize that It will not require anything to remain the way you are. The situation you are in and the person you are NOW was created before this moment and is present because of decisions you’ve already made. From this moment forward you must begin to ask yourself, “how is this assisting me in becoming the greatest version of myself.” In the beginning it will be your thoughts you must constantly question. Do not allow your thoughts to be hijacked by uncontrolled emotions. Remember your heart is much more powerful than your brain, so you have to be careful what you allow yourself to feel.
Of course I don’t mean to isolate yourself and be without emotion. I simply mean to not expose yourself to unnecessary situations. Stay away from toxic people. Dissern what is good for you. Some situations are not good to see and hear. Learn what triggers your emotions and decide accordingly. It will not take you long to notice a difference in your life, once you gain control of your thoughts and breathing.
Always remind yourself that life is about being happy and living with a passion. No one can make you happy. Only you can do that. Please, understand this does not mean others won’t make you happy because they will, but before they can lift your happiness you must have happiness inside of you. I call it the 49% rule. If you are 49% happy, no one can get you to 51%. However, if you are 51% happy, then you can be taken to 100% happiness by another happy person. This comes down to a statement that we should have learned in kindergarten. “Love who you are and be with others who love themselves.” In this scenario, happiness is unlimited and living NOW is effortless.
