I drove with a friend to the beach, and we had a nice conversation in the car. My friend was complaining about a situation with another friend I know. I suggested that she looked at the ‘core belief’ under her complaint. She brushed me off, and I got triggered. I had three choices to make. The first one was to get angry and give her back some of her own medicine. The second was to withdraw, sulk and be resentful. The third was to notice all the above, take care of myself and breathe~love. The third choice requires a commitment & some skills. The commitment is to live in sacred celebration no matter what, be willing to take care of yourself, and not betray or abandon yourself for any person, place or thing, because you can’t afford to take on negative energy. If you’re an Artist of Living, you do it not just for yourself, but also to make the world a more sacred & celebratory place. Taking responsibility for your life and sharing good energy with brothers & sisters & others. Loving all the way.
I chose the third one because that’s my spiritual practice. I focused my attention on taking care of myself & breathing love in 2 my anger and hurt – against the odds. A couple of minutes later my friend asked me why I was so quiet, and I told her that I was doing some inner-work. When she asked what what about and I told her, she apologized for brushing me off, I accepted, and the rest of the day was filled with joy, oxygen & ease. (Watch the video “American Oxygen”)
Life is fundamentally different when you quit being the victim of your stress and become the victor of the breath. It’s an amazing inner-power you have which underlines The practice of The BREAZE.
