Attitude and Emotions -Powerful Lesson

Attitude and Emotions -Powerful Lesson

When someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don’t want it to be done and when we are not able to accept it- We become angry.

 However, when someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don’t want it to be done and we are able to accept it- We remain tolerant.

 When someone has something which we don’t have, or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are not able to accept it- we become jealous.

When someone has something which we don’t have or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are able to accept it- We get inspired.

 When someone is present in our thoughts, but if not physically present and we are not able to accept it we say- “I am missing you”.

When someone is present in our thoughts, but not physically present – and we are able to accept it we say- “I am thinking of you”.

 The emotional equation is quite simple.

Something + Acceptance = Positive Emotion

Something + Non Acceptance = Negative Emotion

 So, it is not “Something” or “someone” who is making us feel positive or negative, but it is our “acceptance” or “non acceptance” of something or someone, which is making us, feel positive or negative.  It isn’t the world but the quality of our response to the world (acceptance or non acceptance) that determines the quality of our emotions.

 Next time we feel disturbed with a negative emotion, instead of asking who or what is disturbing us, we will examine who or what we are resisting (not accepting) that is causing this disturbance in us.  We will replace resistance (non acceptance) with acceptance, and the negative emotion will turn into a positive one.

Emotional management begins by stopping to blame that “something” or “someone” and starting to take the responsibility to respond to life with “acceptance”.
