Amidst all of your life’s challenges, from the petty annoyance of dealing with those “difficult” people at home and at work, to the appearance of life’s gravest tragedies, here is a principle that may help you to feel better.
The first thing to understand about The Method is that it’s not an intellectual process. It’s a feeling process. So please don’t try to explain to yourself or others how or why it works.
We can view your life as occurring in 3 basic stages. Stage 1 you go to sleep and weave a dream of limitation. Stage 2 you live in that dream. Stage 3 you awaken from that dream, into glorious freedom.
The Method proceeds through a series of steps. Doing the following simple version of it on your own can be quite effective, with practice. This outline is especially helpful to those I’ve guided through The Method, as a way of practicing taking yourselves through it.
I can remember in my teen years my father telling that the real world is a jungle. There’s no room for vulnerability, no place for sensitivity, and the closest we come to safety is through conformity.
The universe always works perfectly (despite appearances to the contrary). The wonderful truth about your life is the perfection that always is.
Thought is a marvelously creative power. Imagine someone whom you feel strongly attracted to being in love with you, and if you believe in that thought, even if you are deluding yourself you feel the uplifting thrills that go with that belief.
Wouldn’t you love to wake up in joy every morning? There is nothing preventing you from feeling this way but your habitual emotional reactions and thoughts.
Anything is possible right where you are. It is only your limiting beliefs that limit your expectation of perfection’s infinite potentiality.
Painful emotions are like painful electric shocks that you instinctively want to avoid. And yet, the power of electricity can be harnessed to produce positive conditions like heat in the winter and cool in the summer.
The true nature of all of your relationships is universal, unconditional love. Perfect, infinite love characterizes the way the universe as a whole, including every individual aspect of the universe, interacts with itself.
Joy is the feeling of your natural energy. The discomfort of feeling less than fully joyful signals the unnaturalness of any feeling that is less than joyful. Thus, when you are not feeling joy it is because you are not being natural, you are blocking your authenticity.
Any imperfect condition is an illusion. We can say that God creates perfection and human beings create imperfection. The imperfection we create is not real, though. It is all imaginary.
Every human being has been endowed with certain innate gifts and talents. Your gifts and talents define your path of joy in life and express the uniqueness of who you are and the true purpose of why you are.
Sooner or later you will have to lose all hope in gaining any real or lasting happiness, fulfillment and satisfaction from any worldly condition.
