Simple concrete actions can make BIG changes!

Through daily practice and constant application, a few habits have emerged.

Each time a negative emotion arrived, I would feel it completely, then take a step back, observing below my “Ego”.

This small action, observing from a distance, started to limit time spent being angry or sad, jealous or anxious.

Most of my healing or growth came when thought was absent, emotions were silent, and focus was intense.

Action number two dedicated focus where I placed my attention.

At every moment during my waking hours, I would try to be aware of this present moment.

Every effort was made to be in the present moment, not lost in thought, not stuck in the past or worrying about some future challenge.

Remember to place all energy on the process, not a goal.

We are not looking for perfection, that is an awful judgment, expectation about how life should be.

Do not judge what you thinks happiness looks like.

It does not look like that.

Chasing pleasure, accumulating wealth and power are not connected to happiness.

Gratitude, giving and living in the now surround the area where happiness thrives.

As Bruce Lee eloquently put it,

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

Simple, specific, concrete and immediate action are bulletproof, can withstand the explosion of our fight or flight mechanism.

Follow your inhale, be the first pause, then slowly exhale the warm exhaust, finishing with symmetry of a like pause.

Our breath happens without thought, and is our most immediate life force or need.

We can go days without food and water, a breath, only seconds before death arrives.

The breath is magical but that wisdom has no meaning inside the letters or cognitive meaning.

The wisdom is contained inside the action of focusing on the breath, you must do to know the meaning of those words.

Ten or fifteen minutes a day.
