Where we place our Attention matters

Can you tolerate not expressing negative emotions,

Anger. …

Annoyance. …

Sadness. …

Guilt. …

Fear and anxiety. …

Discouragement and despair. …

Apathy. …

Disappointment and frustration.

How much time would you free up?

Would positive emotions increase?

With no negative emotions getting play time, positive emotions will dominate your personality.

This idea is at the core of mindfulness.

Where we place our attention impacts life in a profound way.

In fact, I believe it is the greatest power of the mind.

A trained, focused mind does not waste energy on negative emotions.

If sadness arrives from life, sadness is felt completely without judgment, then we come back to now.

We live life, narration ceases, judgments are sparse, simple things excite us.

Please share your views and insights.

  1. This really hit home for me. I’ve had so many negative interactions with my wife over the last week that I’ve struck a relative Baseline of being shut down and basically emotion free, which actually is suppressing my happiness joy and good feelings.

    It’s so much safer to suppress my emotions, that way I cannot be hurt or further pissed off. The only problem is it’s “not me,” and I don’t get to experience the magic of my own self.

    Thank you Marty. I don’t know if I can change it necessarily, at least not right now, but it’s something to consider. 😶

  2. Make little challenges

    For the next hour I can focus, let go and be present

    Use aerobic exercise to near very very tired

    I hike till the only thought is can I pick this leg up and keep going

    Ur mind and body receive exhilaration achievement
    Endorphins and an emotional boost

    My legs could move when my mind could not

    Use all ur tools
