This shift makes it possible at any age or stage to find ourselves approaching life with curiosity, fearlessness, humility–and a huge amount of love for and faith in whatever unfolds (instead of spending our lives fearing whatever might happen that could trigger our painful emotions or unwanted behaviors).
All this yummy freedom and connectedness is based on a simple observation that has huge personal implications on our relationships, health, and prosperity:
These realizations are theoretically sound based on the nature of thought and reality. This symmetry principle and The Work that made it apparent to me are not only consistent with but tend to enhance and unify every spiritual or psychological principle or practice I can find–another thing I hope to write more about.I started calling this radical but very freeing perspective “The Reliable Symmetry of Happiness: The Missing PEACE We Were Never Taught” (the title of my forthcoming book!). It yeilds such happy results that I sometimes also call it “Happy Symmetry” or “Peaceful Symmetry” (These are my new baby domain names! So far, I am celebrating having just one landing page up–about my retreat–on peacefulsymmetry.org).I noticed that the shift into this freeing paradigm (that was also being experienced by my colleagues and clients) was largely the result of doing The Work (of Byron Katie) on the thinking behind all our painful situations. The Work both instantly and gradually revealed our own non-duality (i.e., It’s all an inside job. There is no “THEM” to fear or resist; “THEY” are just reflecting to us the mind that projects all that we see).
My movement to share this with you and on a much larger scale will sometimes include sharing insights or even sending you MP3s of actual sessions where folks use this reliable reflection (that is really just ourselves) to get hold of this shift for themselves (i.e., I don’t want anyone to just believe me).
