Taking Action From Inner Peace

Action From Inner Peace

QUESTION:

Hi Max,

Love your site and your blog very much.

I want to ask you a question. I have been meditating for 35 years now so I am able to "stand apart" and watch my thoughts and feelings happen without attaching the self to them. I just feel them without resistance and let them pass. My doubt is about what happens after that.

I have some doubts in my mind, for instance, about how to take things forward my website. Or on other areas of my life. There are many areas where I am not sure how to proceed. I have read that when the thoughts and feelings clear and the inner space is clear - the directions from the inner will guide me on what to do or not do. But all I have inside me is a silent space. No answers from within.

Can you please guide me on this?

RESPONSE:

Hi,

Thanks for your message and feedback. Glad you love the site!

I would say you could take two approaches:

1. Move closer to action. If you aren't sure what to do, perhaps you have a vague idea of something. Perhaps there are many things you could think of, but you aren't sure which to do first. Just make a start on something. Just do something. One thing. Even if it is just going on your website or writing a blog post. Just get the momentum going, get the flow going by moving into it.

2. Be in the frequency of what you would like to accomplish. What do you want your website to do or say or be? Feel the possibility within you, and stay there. Stay on that frequency. Write down what you want from it, or even better - what IT wants from YOU. Be in the best possible frequency of the outcome already having been accomplished, and you might feel more urges to act on things.

I hope that can help you. Thanks for writing.

The Unexpected Gifts of Imperfection

“Vulnerability isn’t good or bad: It’s not what we call a dark emotion, nor is it always a light, positive experience. Vulnerability is the core of all emotions and feelings. To feel is to be vulnerable. To believe vulnerability is weakness is to believe that feeling is weakness. To foreclose on our emotional life out of a fear that the costs will be too high is to walk away from the very thing that gives purpose and meaning to living.” — From Daring Greatly

Life’s Enough: Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

My quick advice: try to be aware of when you start comparing yourself to others … once you’ve developed this awareness, try this trick: stop yourself. Tell yourself, “Stop that!” And then start thinking about all the things you DO have, the things you love, the people you have, the blessings that life has given you. Make this a regular practice, and you’ll start to be happier with your life.
