Day four. Today I’m pissed off. I went to bed that way and woke up that way. Funny thing about it is that half of me wants to stay this way and half of me wants to drop it.
Why would I want to stay pissed off? While I don’t want to wade in this water to long, what about all the people losing their livelihoods and for some, their families, over inappropriate behavior? The effects and ramifications on all of us, our culture and the sickness we have allowed in our lives, pisses me off.
The insanity of terror groups, the devastating natural disasters, drug related deaths, racism, piss me off.
There are people in the grocery store being disrespectful, selfish and rude, employees not being the best they can be, looking for the easy way out, not being open to others thoughts and opinions and shitty weather, piss me off. There is not enough space in this blog to produce the entire list. So????? Now what?
Let’s begin with Kyles and our new mantra “and I love that”. It pisses me off to have to be in this position to have to love that (and I’m sure it does you too) but, let’s try to diffuse this insanity right now. All of the world’s problems will not miss our attention. We will not be instantly transported to a new and wonderful place and time. We will need to continue to pray and direct our intentions for a peaceful and loving world and we will still see the world spinning out of control around us. The mantra “and I love that” is merely a vehicle to use to challenge our view and consider a new way of thinking now, the only thing we can do about it in this moment.
When I feel something in my body I don’t like, I have to look at my thinking. My thinking causes my feeling, so if I can change my thinking it will automatically change how I feel. Wayne Dyer used to always say “If you change the way you look at the world, the world you look at changes” Love you Wayne!
Thanks, I’m not pissed off anymore (at least for the moment).

One thought on “Pissed off?”
While it can temporarily help to react to the suffering out there, it also gives it power. So we must be careful.
The world is an illusion and the only thing real is God, and what God has made. So what do we do with all of the suffering we observe? We bring LOVE to it, as you said !! Love is where the power is. Suffering plays an important role in the awakening from the dream. It forces us to change when we can stand it no longer!!!
Expressing a grateful heart is a great practice and antidote!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!! I love you and your writing!
