Did you know that the heart is surrounded by a neural network nearly as big as the brain (70%) ?
This has been proven as a scientific fact since more than 40 years!
It means literally that we can think with our heart as well as with our brain.
For example, when someone does not treat us well, our ego has a tendency to generate negative thoughts and emotions toward that person.
But if we switch our thinking from mind to heart, we become able to send love and light to that same person, as we know that she is suffering and is just a messenger to reflect our own points of improvements.
And for this, we are in gratitude.
Easier said than done?
Yes, until we learn how to « switch » our thoughts from mind to heart.
And all we need for this is practice, practice, practice!
Do you ever met a person who never felt guilty in their entire life? Personally, I don’t !
Usually, guilt appears when we think we did something we shouldn’t have done, or when we didn’t do something we thought we should have done…
We feel guilt because we have been programmed since our birth to feel it…do you remember what your parents told you when you didn’t want to do your homework? Or when you did something you loved to do but didn’t please them?
Long after the parents are gone, most of us continue to create guilt towards themselves each time they think they could have done better than they actually did.
But can you see the great gift in this?
The other side of guilt is always an unaccomplished, often subconscious desire.
And now we have a great way to extract from our subconscious mind anything we truly want in our life!
Let’s be happy!
I heard the expression « moving the goal post for happiness » for the first time in week 18 of the MKMMA program, but I was aware of its meaning since I am 34.
One day, I got a flash vision of myself going through the milestones of my life : elementary school, high school, college, marriage, military service, job, family house, children (1st, 2d, 3d)…
And I felt a strange mixed feeling of uncompleteness and frustration that the accomplishement of my next milestone would again not bring me the full happiness I was longing for…
That vision triggered a powerful desire to change something in my way of life, but it took me 15 more years to discover the right alternative to « moving the goal post ».
And that is…happiness is in the NOW, and I AM ENOUGH!
Did I say enough?
To save many years of happiness, earnestly working the MKMMA training until week 18 and beyond…is a great strategy!
