Emotional Freedom

Until one awakens, the emotions will always be a problem. One minute you are up, the next you are down. The mistake all of us make (until its clearly recognized) is that we place our happiness on something outside of us. “If I could get a boy/girlfriend like that (fill in with the image in your head), then I will be happy. That has not happened yet, therefore I cannot allow myself to be happy!” And so, in essence, we are punishing ourselves because the image in our mind of success or happiness has not occurred in “real life.”

Is there an alternative to this insane way to live? Yes. Simply to be happy for no reason!! None. Turns out you don’t need one! I’m serious. Why in the hell should you wait for a reason to be happy when you can just decide to be happy right now!!? The only thing stopping you is the BELIEF that you need a reason to happy.

Emotional Freedom means that you realize that whatever is going to happen is going to happen, and so you might as well enjoy the show with a genuine feeling of love, gratitude and joy, rather than as a grumpy, miserable sour face!! 🙂 It means that you are no longer jerked around by the good opinion of others. It means that at your center, love, peace, stillness, and joy is your experience, regardless of what particular emotion may be arising.
