When You Are Unhappy with Your Life - A Thought from Stillness Speaks

Saturday, April 28, 2012Atishay Jain



Suffering begins when you mentally name or label a situation in some way as undesirable or bad. You resent a situation and that resentment personalizes it and brings in the reactive me. Naming and labeling are habitual but that habit can be broken. Start practising not naming with small things. If you miss the plane, drop and break a cup, or slip and fall in the mud, can you refrain from naming the experience as bad or painful? Can you immediately accept the “isness” of that moment?

Naming something as bad causes an emotional contraction within you, when you let it be without naming it, enormous power is suddenly available to you. The contraction cuts you off from that power, the power of life itself.

When you are suffering, when you are unhappy, stay totally with what is now.
Unhappiness or problems cannot survive in the Now.
