The core struggle for most of us is we want things to be different than they are. How can we free ourselves from unnecessary suffering and experience freedom that is already present in our lives.
Ask yourself, what am I feeling right now that I don’t want to feel? And is that a problem?
Often we look outside ourselves either for problems or solutions. Couples blame one another-you should change so that I won’t feel disturbed. By placing the cause of our disturbance outside of ourselves they miss the opportunity to develop a capacity to deal with our own disturbance.
What is our tendency? We avoid feeling discomfort. We get wrapped up in stories and interpretations. Our normal way of operating is to relate to our embodied sensation from the perspective of our interpretations.
According to my guest-Bruce Tift, the author of Already Free, the more we stay embodied with our moment to moment experience, the more confidence we have that we can work with whatever arises.
